Life as a New Hire is a multi volume saga about the journey of intern Cáel Nyilas through his 84 day internship at Havenstone Commercial Investments. Volume I: 43,000 +words
Cáel Nyilas’ back story:
At the start of my senior year at Thornton Fractional North High School in Calumet City, Illinois, I was a motherless loser. I didn’t care about anything, lived like a slob. I was on course to graduate in the top 50% of my class
The first week of school, the perfect girl, Cameron Sanders, caught her boyfriend cheating on her. Gripped by a bout of uncontrolled testosterone poisoning, I found her walking with her clique of the super-popular girls and professed my love for her. She publicly humiliated me then cavalierly dismissed my quivering form.
That night my widower Father found me despondently watching PBS. He didn't ask me for the details. He asked me ‘what was I going to do about it’. Without using those precise words, he told me that I had no one else to blame for my circumstances but me. I also could be the one who changed my fate; me and me alone.
That night, my Father started me on a physical training regimen ~ weights and running. I threw myself into my studies. That first month, I thought I’d die. I lost weight, firmed up and raised my GPA enough to personally impress my English teacher. He helped me get a scholarship to a small college in rural New England. I devoted myself to my physical and academic future. I was busy training my mind for the next challenge, my body for the next benchmark and building my confidence to the point that I believed I could do anything, just like my Father said I could.
I went to college a wide-eyed, virginal, guileless boy who thought he could do anything. I graduated a very different young man – a seasoned, sexually proficient, relentless womanizer who knew I could have any woman I wished.
Spring, Post Graduation
Five young men, all recent graduates, landed dream jobs with an International Fortune 500 Corporation. They are the first male interns ever at Havenstone Commercial Investments.
Havenstone Commercial Investments has completed a long legal proceeding over their accused discriminatory policies against males, thus the new internships. Unknown to the five interns, Havenstone Commercial Investments is concealing criminal and deadly secrets in their Boardroom.
Cáel Nyilas, from a blue collar background and graduate from obscure Bolingbrook College in New Hampshire joins with four elitist frat rats earning a quarter million a year.
Chinese-American Brian Fung from Harvard, blue blood Trent Grant from Carnegie-Melon, African-American Khalid Adzharia from MIT and Salvadoran-American Felix Melena from the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor; all had far better academic pedigrees than Cáel, nicer toys, and better looking suits. The one thing all five had in common? They were all freaking gorgeous; not cultured, handsome, or attractive to the opposite sex, every one of them would be hit on in a nightclub in under five minutes unless there was a significant other hanging all over them.
For the first 84 days, corporate policy states Havenstone employees and interns are forbidden sexual liaisons with each other; punishable by fines, job transfers and termination of contract. Havenstone policy means all Havenstone women are unavailable; Cáel a seasoned seducer, sexually proficient and a relentless womanizer will have to look outside for bed partners. A great lover but a lousy boyfriend no female between 18 and 65 was immune from his attentions. His girlfriends’ sisters, aunts or mothers were targets for his seductive talent. Not only could guys not trust him with their girlfriends, girlfriends can't trust their girl friends around Cáel either.
With over 200 ex-girlfriends, all of whom he has betrayed in some manner, many who still want to cause him some level of pain, brought about by his insatiable sexual attraction for every woman he meets between 18 and 65, what could go wrong?
