About a month had went pass since my meeting with my biological father. I decided not to keep in contact with him, and I got my cell phone number changed to ensure that. My father and I patched things up, and vowed to never keep anymore secrets from eachother. I never talked to my mom about the whole situation, I already knew how that conversation would go. School had started, and I was enjoying every minute of it. In between school, and working for Natalia I managed to spend time with Jordan as well.
"Hey Amber" Nicole said after entering our condo. She tossed her keys on the coffee table, and sat down next to me on the couch.
I was working on a school project on my laptop, that I needed a break from. Hey Coley" I said sitting my laptop on the coffee table. "How was work" I asked.
"Work was really busy" she said after sighing. "We have a really big event coming up for Pharrell...whom I'm really excited to meet" she said.
"Well that's exciting" I said happy for my bestfriend.
"So do you plan to visit home anytime soon" she asked.
"This is my home" I said blandly. Nicole shook her head, and went into the kitchen.
My cellphone went off and Natalia's office number appeared on my caller I.D. I wonder what they could want, today was my first day off in awhile.
"Hello", I answered.
"Hey Amber it's Whitney" she said. Whitney was Natalia's event planner.
"Hey Whitney..what's going on" I asked.
"Well tonight were having a small exclusive fashion show tonight at club Area, and we really need your help" she explained.
I looked down at my laptop remebering the school project I was suppose to be working on. I wanted to go to the fashion show, because I loved helping out with them, and I needed the experience. However, I really needed to work on my project for school as well. Life is about juggling responsibilities, so I would just have to figure out a way to do both.
"What time do you need me there" I asked.
"Now" she chuckled. "We are getting some of the models fitted and we need your help...Natalia's waiting for you there" she added.
"Okay I'm on my way" I said and hung up.
I quickly dressed in all black as Natalia request for any workers to wear during her fashion shows, and headed towards the club.
When I got there it was mayhem in the club. There were half dressed models, Natalia barking orders, clothing racks all over, makeup artist setting up, and just general chaos.
"Thank God your here" Natalia said wiping sweat off of her forehead. "I need you to help Megan get these models dressed" she said.
"Sure" I said heading towards Megan who was helping a model put on a very fitting top.
"Glad your here" Megan said. Megan was a paid intern there like me, and we got along really well. Nicole didn't really care for Megan, she thought she was fake.
"Yeah looks like there's alot going on here" I said wheeling one of the clothing racks towards our area. I began helping to get the models dressed, and sent to makeup. It was really busy, and time was flying pass fast. It was all worth it, since the fashion show turned out amazing.
After the show Natalia took Megan and I out for drinks. We went to a really cute bar not too far from the club.
"So how did you like the show" Natalia asked us both.
"I thought it was fantastic" Megan answered first. "All the models looked really good tonight" she added.
"I thought it was wonderful as well" I said. "But I think we could use a little more orginization backstage" I suggested.
Megan looked at me like she couldn't believe I had just said that, and Natalia just continued to sip on her drink. I wondered if Natalia had even heard me. I watched her push her drink away, and dab at her mouth with a napkin.
"I agree with you" she finally said looking me in the eye. "So what do you suggest" she asked.
Megan looked very nervous, not being able to detect whether or not Natalia had taken offense to what I said.
"Well I think it's a good idea to take all the models pictures and attach them to the outfits there suppose to wear for the show. It would make things go alot faster...I mean I know we have there names attached, but alot of the times the girls don't respond to when we call there names out. Sometimes they don't hear us, so with pictures we could actually go and find them if need be. I also think fittings should happen the night before the show...so we could work on any last minute details we need." I said.
I sat there silently and waited for Natalia's response. I wondered had I come off as bossy, or did it seem like I was complaining? I thought they were just honest suggestions.
"I think those are fabulous ideas" she said. "We are going to have a meeting tomorrow, and I'd like for you to tell everyone about your suggestions. Kudos. Anyways ladies I have got to be up early in the morning" she said and left.
"Wow" Megan said looking at me. "I can't believe you were that bold. I would have never said anything, although those were really good ideas." she said.
I shrugged my shoulders, and finished my drink. I was really proud of myself for making those suggestions, but I didn't want to show it for some reason.
On my way home I decided to call Jordan, and see if he was still up.
"Hey" he answered.
"I can't believe your still up" I said looking at the clock in my car which read 1:07 a.m.
"Yeah I'm still up...I just finished up a stupid research paper" he said.
"So how about some company" I suggested.
"See you when you get here" he said and hung up.
When I got to Jordan's dorm room, he was waiting downstairs for me. He greeted me with a big hug, and we headed upstairs.
"So what did you do all day other than homework" I asked after plopping down on his bed.
"I had my head in the books all day" he said after sighing.
"Sounds boring" I laughed.
"Yeah it was...school completly ruins my social life" he said. "So how was work" he asked.
"It was good...Natalia kept me plenty of busy with the fashion show" I said.
"Natalia" he repeated.
"Yeah she's my boss...and the funny thing is she's around our age" I giggled.
"You wouldn't be talking about Natalia Gibson would you" he quizzed.
"Yeah...I didn't know you were into fashion" I said.
"I'm not" he admitted. "Natalia is my ex" he said.
I sprung up off his bed in sheer shock. I couldn't believe what he had just said. He was my bosses ex...how weird was that.
"Are you serious" I asked hoping he was joking.
"As a heart attack" he said.
"I can't believe this" I said pacing the floor. "Well oh well...it's no big deal" I resoned.
"You don't know Natalia very well do you" he said.
"What do you mean" I asked confused.
"If Natalia finds out your dealing with me...you''ll be fired" he said.
"Natalia's not caddy like that" I said.
"Yeah she is" he said.
