Julie read it again. It was an anonymous mail declaring love. She had been getting these emails for the past one week. Julie re-read it and smiled. She always read them in the morning, break and before going home. It was definitely someone from her team. Julie hoped that it was not some married man. Was it Alvin, Jay or Jake? She was sure it was one of these three men. Alvin was the most well dressed, Jay was trendy and Jake was unkempt, but talented. Julie was still dreaming when she was called to attend the meeting. She observed the three of them when they made their points in the meeting. Jake noticed her and smiled.
Was it Jake? Julie certainly wished it was him. The next day she got another email. From Jake? She saved all them in a folder. The weekend made her yearn for those emails. She would ask Jake in the office party on Monday. She dressed casually for the party. Maybe Jake would like it. As she went inside, there was a crowd. Her teammates were congratulating Jake, who was there with his fiancée. A shaken Julie went to her desk and opened her inbox. The folder concerned was gone and with it all those precious emails.
