Emma is sitting on a turbulent plane. She's always been a v. nervous flyer. She really thinks that this could be her last moment.
So, naturally enough, she starts telling the man sitting next to her - quite a dishy American, but she's too frightened to notice -all her innermost secrets.
How she scans the backs of intellectual books and pretends she's read them.
How she does her hair up like Princess Leia in her bedroom.
How she's not sure if she has a G-spot, and whether her boyfriend could find it anyway.
How she feels like a fraud at work - everyone uses the word 'operational' all the time but she hasn't a clue what it means.
How the coffee at work is horrible. How she once threw a troublesome client file in the bin.
If ever there was a bare soul, it's hers. She survives the flight, of course, and the next morning the famous founding boss of the whole mega corporation she works for is coming for a look at the UK branch.
As he walks around, Emma looks up and realises...It's the man from the plane.
What will he do with her secrets? He knows them all - but she doesn't know a single one of his. Or...does she?
