Novel by Sharon Johnson
Tuesday after he was finished with another grueling day, he nervously went to see her. When he walked in he noticed the crowd was thin and she was cleaning tables. She hadn’t seen him yet and it gave him a moment to observe someone he’d never considered as anything other than a pest. Now watching her, she seemed more like a lovely young woman, that he for some reason had started to feel comfortable with. None of that mattered because he was there for one reason; to offer her a job and leave as quickly as possible. Finally turning in his direction, she waved and gestured for him to wait.
He took a seat at one of the smaller tables. A moment later, she came to the table ready to take his order. With her always bright smile she said,
“Long time no see stranger, what can I get for you sir?” There was playfulness to her voice that brought an unexpected smile to his face.
“Well actually, I was wondering when you get your next break?” She looked around and signaled to her manager that she was ready for her break.
“Well as you can see, we’re swamped, but for you I guess I can swing it.” Laughing she said. “So, what brings you to our humble establishment? That’s twice in one week Mr. I’m busy building an empire.”
“Well actually,” He said, I came because I have something in mind I thought you might be interested in.” He still wasn’t sure whether it was a good idea or not, but he knew it was the right thing to do. Her eyebrow cocked up.
“Oh really, have you per chance come across a company looking for a server extraordinaire with a very dusty unused college diploma?” She started to chuckle until she noticed him not laughing.
“Actually, I have a better idea in mind. How would you feel about coming to work for me? It would only be an entry level position with a base salary, but it would at least get you out of this place and it would be a chance to start your career.” He pulled the contract out of his pocket and slid it over to her. The stunned look on her face was followed by a growing smile.
“Are you kidding me, I’d love it! As much as it would pain me to leave all this, I think I could manage. When do I start? What should I wear? What would I be doing? Who would…” Matt quickly cut her off.
“First of all, I want you to go home and read the contract thoroughly before signing and if that’s what you decide. Second, if you do decide this is something you want.” He pulled a business card from his pocket and handed it to her. “Walter Styles is the man you’d be working for and he’s also be the one who’d answer all your questions. I don’t want you to think just because I’m offering you the job you have to take it.
