This is a continuing story. To read later/ previous entries go here As I Sat on the Bus.
I had my lunch in the park again as I have for many weeks now but I can feel the air change and I know soon I will have to go back to that dreaded lunch room. I don’t even look at the other girls in the office anymore because I only see hostility in their eyes. Ms. Senter has been so kind to me but taking me under her wing has caused a lot of resentment from the other assistants.
They hired another new one today but this time it’s a male. His name was Brad and when Ms. Senter brought him around to meet all of us he seemed nice enough but a little scared. I kind of felt sorry for him because I know that feeling. I thought of going up to him and welcoming him but it’s been my experience that any contact with boys gets their minds thinking of only one thing; and I am not interested in that!
Maybe one day, when I have enough money to have my own place and Sabrina is almost done with nursing school I will date. I would like to have my own family, a little house with a yard, a couple of kids and a husband who loves me and only me. He will be handsome, much like Brad and successful. And we will be partners in every sense of the word.
Oh my goodness; there is my stop! I must have dozed off.
