Strip by: Jemppu

{An office}
Meridien: {writing a Post-it note on the front of a document} This isn't coming out tomorrow yet, but the client has requested a proof copy. Please, treat this as if it was going to the press today. xoxo {signed} Meri
{Meridien places the document into a tray labelled "To the press TODAY"}
Samantha: {walking past, sees the note and thinks} Yeah. Like heck.
{Delkin walks past, humming obliviously to himself}
{Holly, looking overworked and confused, takes a document from the LATER tray and not the one in the TODAY tray.}
{Oliver walks by, talking on his phone, ignoring the trays.}
{Meridien is putting on her coat to leave the office at the end of the day.}
Meridien: {spotting the document still there} !!!
{Next morning, Samantha comes by and reads a new note Meridien has left on the document.}
Note: DO NOT TOUCH!! Make sure this urgent document is the last one to remain untouched. Under no circumstances should you attempt to process this! Counting on you - Meri.
Samantha: {reading note} Crap! It is actually tempting suddenly.

Whoops, Meridien might have stolen Holly's flower print here. You're welcome to interpret them as stars or whatever.
