It was a clear, crisp autumn morning

 Q:   Ask a Question about It was a clear, crisp autumn morning       
It was a clear, crisp autumn morning by Cristina Nuta -

It was a clear, crisp autumn morning, and the wind made Kate's cheeks tingle pleasantly as she walked briskly to work. Pale sunlight shone the bare branches of the trees lining the road, and fallen leaves moved and made a noise round her feet, while the smell of bonfires staying in the air brought back nostalgic memories of her childhood half a century ago.

Her contentment went away, however, the moment she reached the office, where she was greeted by the noise of angry voices and a lot of quick activity. Puzzled, she asked innocently what was wrong.

'We've been taken over by another company', someone said hysterically, and 'they've fired everyone'. Kate's heart sank; she had refused to believe office stories of the takeover, and now she felt lost and afraid. She had no idea what she could do, or where she should go. Very surprised, she didn't even take off her coat, but simply took a few personal possessions from her desk before she turned and walked blindly out of her office.

Slowly making her way to the park, Kate sat dejectedly on a bench and looked at the ducks moving on the river. After thirty years of loyal service, she told herself bitterly, she had been put aside, and her life was not good. No one would hire an elderly secretary who knew nothing about computers.

Then a familiar voice suddenly interrupted her thoughts: 'Cheer up, Kate-it's not the end of the world!' Looking up, she saw her boss, Mr. Thomson, smiling happily. As soon as he had heard about the takeover, he explained, he had decided to make other plans, and had bought a small hotel in the south of Spain. 'My wife and I needed a housekeeper', he continued nicely, 'and you'd be perfect for the job'.

Kate looked at the beautiful colours of the fallen leaves and realised instinctively that this was the chance of her dreams. She was happy at the idea of making a new start in the later part of her life, and a big smile was seen on her face. She knew the events of that day would change her life for ever.
