Safe Haven

Plot is currently being changed... Just... just read it already. It won't suck... I hope



3. The call

  I waited anxiously at the table. The same table at which I had filled out the application, I guess I'd sorta hoped it would bring me some luck or something dumb like that. Anyways, they had told me that that day would be the day that they'd call. IF I got the position, that is. I really hoped I did get the job! I'm on the waiting list for N.Y.U. to study fashion, and I need something to keep me busy in the meantime, and to pay bills, of course! 

 All of a sudden, I hear the phone ring! I jump up and rush towards it, feeling the air whoosh around me. I picked it up just before the second ring.

 "Hello?" I asked, trying to be cool. All I heard was silence on the other end for a few seconds until I heard:

"You have randomly been selected for a free trip to Florida!" An automated voice said.

"Bullshit." I muttered after hanging up. I plopped down on the couch, the leather was cold so I pulled down the afghan blanket that I always draped over the side of the couch. I had a pillow behind my head and before I knew it I was fast asleep.

 I woke with a start. I looked around to find what it was that was ringing. I saw the buttons on my phone glowing green. I got up so fast I fell off the couch, hitting the ground with a hard 'THUMP'. I just brushed myself off and got the phone.

"Hello?" I said.

"Hello, this is Dwight Lannigan, we met the other day, you gave me your resume?" He said, sounding like he was just trying to make sure it was me.

"Oh, Yes! Did I get the position?" I hated small talk. I liked to just jump straight to the point and not beat around the bush. My no-nonsense approach to life.

"Well, I'm very pleased to say that you did!" He said.

"So, when can I start?" I asked.

"Well, you and the new guy can start on Monday, if that's convinent." He replied.

"That's perfect! See you then, Mr. Lannigan!" I said.

"I'll see you then, oh, and you can just call me Dwight." He said.

"Okay then, bye Dwight!" I responded.

"Goodbye Selena!" He echoed politely. That's where we hung up. I started wondering who this new guy is... I hope we get along!
