Tom Parker is the main character of this book. I wanted to portray Tom as a good hearted individual who, like many of us, tries his hardest everyday to be happy and make the people around him happy as well. His Advertising company, Parker Ad Agency, is small but he wanted it to be a fun place for people to work when he first set it up. I wanted to show that somehow and did so in this short paragraph. Tom has just had a bad day, but comes back to the office feeling good to be there. Please enjoy this short excerpt.
The Imagination Stone
Tom opened the door and felt like he was coming home. He could tell these people anything and they would be understanding and supportive and he hoped that this would be the case today. This group was his adopted family. When he walked in, he looked around. Everyone was at their desks. The casual feel of the office was something Tom had always strived for. Brett in his jeans and button-up shirt. Joe was also in jeans and a long sleeved casual T-shirt. And then there was Julie. She sat at her desk in her oversized sweater and her blue jeans. Her daughter, who sported a short-sleeved shirt with horses on it, was sitting at Julie’s desk with her back to the door. She often had crayons in her hand and today was no different. She loved to color. She didn’t always create masterpieces that the world would appreciate, but she created works of art in Julie’s eyes and, more often than not, in Tom’s eyes as well. Julie looked up when Tom walked in, stood up from her chair and walked briskly over to him.
