It's been two long week's since I started working for Christopher Monroe. All-in-all he's a pretty decent guy, he loves his employes and cares for them very much. But, his girlfriend, my bad I mean fiance Samantha is an absolute bitter woman. She's also entirely selfish, and you'd think getting pregnant by her old-boss and not being rich... That she'd be different, but she's not.
"That's the last of it, Elizabeth." Jack, the furniture guy, finished bringing in the items that I told Christopher I wanted in the pool house.
"Thank you." I smiled, gratefully.
I requested a white sofa for the sun room and a new bed for the room that I will be sleeping in...Because somehow and someway the one that was in the room before was broken when I found it. So, Christopher had them replace it for me.
"Your welcome." Jack leaned against the doorway.
"Jack, come-on now let's go!" Jack's partner Matthew called him from the truck they drove here with.
"I will hold on!" Jack yelled back, then looked straight at me. "You're a very pretty girl, you know? You seem pretty nice too... So, um... Would you like to go on a date with me?"
This has been this first guy since Kevin to ask me out, I don't know if I'm ready...or if I should even go out... But, I supposed I should start trying? "Um..." I bit my lip and blushed a deep red, I could feel the heat on my cheeks. "Sure?" I smiled a little bit.
I said sure, because I would be lucky to go out with a guy like Jack. He's cute, old enough and yet pretty young - like he might be 19 or 22. He looks a bit more mature for his age though, his brown-spiky-hairstyle told me he was young and his dark brown eyes told me he was sincere. His muscles told me he was strong, so he could defend me and his tan told me that he loved the sun. But, of course, I could be just misreading things.
"Great. I'll pick you up tomorrow at 8?"
"Okay, sure." I tried not to seem too desperate.
Jack turn and left, got in his truck next to Matthew and then they left.
I smiled and shut the door of the pool house.
I have a date with Jack... I wonder if he's a nice guy. I hope he is.
There was a knock at the pool house's door, when I answered it - I saw Christopher, my boss, the guy who allowed me to live here... After my tragic break up with Kevin.
"G'morning, I see that you got the furniture already." Christopher welcomed me in with a hug.
I let go of his grip, "Yeah." I paused, thinking of the right words to say. How to tell him I got a date. "Um... Jack, the furniture guy, asked me out."
Christopher raised his eyebrow's, "and you said?"
"Heh, I said yes!" I giggled a bit, because I'm kind-of happy, which I'd thought I'd never be again...
"Lucky you, Jack's a nice guy." Christopher walked into the living room and I followed him.
"Since you know him, could you tell me a bit about him? I feel weird because he's basically an entire stranger... I'm worried that he might...even end up like Kevin..." I tried not to wince at the memory, I probably shouldn't have just blurted this out...Elizabeth, why do you have to blurt out nearly everything that's on your mind?
"Okay." Christopher sighed, then chuckled. "Well, Jack is a stand-up kind of guy. He was married to this chick, Bailey. They ended up breaking it off, don't really know why, other then the fact she was a straight-up bitch to everyone including him... That's all I know about him."
"Oh, really?" He was married before? But he looks so young...
"Um... How are you and Samantha?"
Christopher smirked slightly, "she's mad at me."
I laughed, because this is usual behavior for Samantha. "Why is she mad at you now?"
"I told her that I wanted to break up." Christopher blurted out a straight face.
I couldn't tell if he was being serious, or if he was joking. "I can see why she would be mad at you, so why did you and Samantha break up?"
"You want to know why?" Christopher chuckled and shook his head. "She doesn't like the fact I have women working for me - like you, Genevieve and Katie. You all need the jobs and to live here... Or else, you all would be homeless."
"Homeless? Katie and Genevieve would be homeless? Since when?" I wonder why... Why she hates everyone... And why everyone would be homeless... Except me, I know why I would be... But, still Christopher shouldn't have to take care of me. I feel selfish, I think that a lot about myself.
