Across The Ocean

Working long hours at a beach shack on hot summer day's doesn't make your summer the worse. You know your summer's worse when the minute your best friend leaves to camp and her brother turns out to have a crush. But that's not bad even, it gets worse when you start dating him and then when your friend returns and finds out the truth on her own. Will Amanda and James live happily ever after or will their fairy tale at the beach come to an end?


4. My Interesting Job

The Next Day

My phone rings in the morning when I was getting ready for work. It was James, figures.

James: "Hey I can pick up for work in an hour"

Me: "Ua, doesn't work start in 45min?"

James: "Yep"

Me: "So, shouldn't we leave now?"

James: "We have time"

Me: 'It's my second day, I want to have a good impression"

James: "'sigh' fine goody two shoes, see ya at work."

Me: "Okay bye"

James: "Bye"

I sigh while heading to my car, today was going to be a long day. When I arrive at work, I realize I was one of the few employees there, besides the manager.

"Oh thank goodness! Another employee who actually shows up for work on time" the manager, Joe, says.

"Yep" I say looking around.

"Since James will be late as usual, I'll have him train you" Joe informs me. "But until he arrives, I will train you. Oh, and I'm sorry for not doing this yesterday, I got caught up in so many things"

"Don't worry about it" I say smiling. "I worked at a fast food restaurant before, I just never worked a fry machine"

"Really? Amazing, I'll just show you how to use one then" Joe replies. Joe was actually sort-of cute. He looked like he was about 22 years old. He had blue eyes and blonde hair, and he had a fit body.

"Ok, the fry machine" Joe says motioning with his hands for me to follow him.

"Ok, press this button here"


"Now take the oil and change it out with the old oil"

I did as I was told, changing the French fry oil.

"Normally this would be done before you get to work, but I'm showing how to just in case one of our employees forget to" Joe tells me as I finish up the task. "And the last step is getting the fresh peeled potatoes out of the fridge and put them in the fryers and put them under the oil for five minutes"

"That easy huh?" I say

"Yep, can you get the fries out of the fridge please?"

"Oh right" I say walking into the Employees only door. I walk out of the door to see that James was standing by the fryer.

"Hey Amanda" He says walking towards me. "Joe said that I have to train you today"  I sigh finishing up the fries. "Well someone doesn't sound to happy to see me" James says putting a hurt look on his face.

"I'm just a little tired ok?" I say, to be honest I actually wasn't, I was just worried that James was going to flirt with me again, and I guess I don't have to worry any more...he is...(sarcastic yay).

"What ever you say babe" James says winking at me walking out of the kitchen.

Did James just call me babe? I was too stunned to say anything or even move.
