Benny spun round.  She couldn’t believe  him.  But Benny couldn’t back down . It wasn’t in her  nature.  “fine! she snapped back.  You know what, Irving fine!”

She threw open the door before turning around to face him once more.

"Remember when  you deserted this place and me and Bev were running it . We saved this collection. when you were swarming off around the universe.  If not for  us you wouldn’t have a sodding collection anymore. Remember that?"

She too forced a smile. She wasn’t worried about finding alternative employment or a home. She’d done it before.

 ”Well I don’t need you  Irving Braxiatel I hope that’s clear?”

Braxiatel retreated to his desk, taking a seat and beginning to organize the papers there as he pretended not to listen to her, reading over some and filing others away in the drawer. 

        Brax looked up at her again, his eyebrows arched up into his head and a subtle tug at the corner of his lips that almost resembled a smile “Be a dear Professor Summerfield and close the door on your way out.”

"A little bit of gratitude wouldn’t go amiss.  We’ll see, won’t we, how far your precious collection stands without an  Archeologist. " Benny knew she was important. She had heard it enough times. "Goodbye Irving." She walked out and slammed the door hard, before making her way down the hallway. If he wanted her off the collection then he would certainly get his wish.

 Bernice shook her head. “I have my time rings, that your brother kindly gave me as a wedding gift.  I don’t think  I will be limited to a small corner of Earth. You act like I wasn’t doing all this before having the displeasure of meeting you. I can quite easily go freelance. “

If he was trying to convince her to stay then he wasn’t doing a very good job of it

She stood up and walked towards the door.  “I think I will take that long Holiday. A long luxury Holiday away from you and your collection. See how far you get without me.” Benny knew threats held no weight unless you were prepared to follow them though.

"Fine." Braxiatel waved his hand dismissively "Take your silly holiday, but you shan’t be paid for it. In fact, seeing as I displease you so entirely, I think it wise I terminate you employment. You have until the end of the day to clear our your office, you have until the end of tomorrow to find yourself a new place to live. How’s that?" He forced a smile onto his lips, "I want you Benny, but I do not need you; there is a big difference, darling. The Collection will go on to thrive without you.”

Benny spun round.  She couldn’t believe  him.  But Benny couldn’t back down . It wasn’t in her  nature.  “fine! she snapped back.  You know what, Irving fine!”

She threw open the door before turning around to face him once more.

 ”I don’t think you are in much of a position to refuse. Oh no doubt you can convince everyone else to do as you want but if you don’t have an Archeologist then you are damn well screwed. So let’s talk about my pay-rise or I may very well just book myself on one of those luxury holidays.” Benny wasn’t sure if she was bluffing or she’d serious go though with it. Would be interesting to see how far  she  could push him.

She meet eye contact with him. “Doesn’t suit me or doesn’t look good for you? And really you order me?  I don’t take orders from you Irving,  you should know that about me.”

    “Do not bite the hand that feeds, Bernice.” he warned, a smile curving the corners of his lips “Of course you can resign, and I have no doubts you’ll find someone else who can make use of your expertise, but are you really going to get the opportunity to see space, and other planets as you do? Are you really going to settle for some corner of Earth after all this, I think not.”

 Bernice shook her head. “I have my time rings, that your brother kindly gave me as a wedding gift.  I don’t think  I will be limited to a small corner of Earth. You act like I wasn’t doing all this before having the displeasure of meeting you. I can quite easily go freelance. “

"Don’t push it Irving," Benny  warned him . "And are you capable of giving a straight answer?The way I see it, is that you need me and without me you won’t get what you want.  I think  what you think I’m worth and what I know I’m worth are two different things.  Now what I want is  a pay-rise. No pay-rise = no dig. And I’ll  have it in writing too, on my desk ASAP. "

  “Yes, and I consider you a very valuable asset to The Collection.” he admitted, his tone was sincere and he was taken aback slightly by her words but he didn’t let it show; “Don’t be so demanding Benny, it doesn’t suit you. I will give you a pay rise when you are due a pay rise, until then you will be paid handsomely , as always, for your time, effort and finds. Now, lets forget this silly nonsense and have some cake, hmm? Don’t make me order you darling.”

"Oh  I am starting to question why I do stick around. I must be mad." Either that or she had rocks in her head, Bernice thought silently to herself.  She knew she always ended up playing right into his hands, despite her best attempts not to let him.

"Good I am glad to hear that.  And I do hope so. Talking of which, you haven’t mentioned a figure yet."

"Because you like my company, perhaps?" He asked, a chirpy little spring in his voice as he did, his eyebrows arching. 

    “I told you, you’ll get your worth.”

"Don’t push it Irving," Benny  warned him . "And are you capable of giving a straight answer?The way I see it, is that you need me and without me you won’t get what you want.  I think  what you think I’m worth and what I know I’m worth are two different things.  Now what I want is  a pay-rise.

"Charming as ever, I see.  And nice to see you too Irving," the last part was said in a sarcastic  tone. "You want me on this  dig Then I suggest you cough up a lot and I mean a lot of money. I’m not just a Archaeologist. I’m a good and proper one. "

"Of course I am darling, that’s why you stick around." He smiled at her, he sensed the sarcasm in her tone of course but he did enjoy pushing her buttons. "The best archaeologist I know; Don’t worry, you’ll get your worth."
