10. The New Director


*one month later*

I sat on my bed with my hands clasped tight around the documents. It was my grandmothers will. She had left me basically everything seeing as I was the only family she had left. This house, everything in it and a ton of money. All mine. But I didn’t want any of it. I just wanted her

. I fought back the tears and called my new boss for the next few months. My new job was photographing for a model agency and, although I had my fair share of nasty, rude girls who thought they were the Queen of Sheba, I had made a few friends. Ripley, who has brown hair and dark skin, was quite shy when you first met her but then you see that she’s actually really friendly and sensible. Amy has long blonde hair, blue eyes, typical beauty sort of thing and you would expect her to be a typical, stuck-up kind of girl too. You couldn’t be more wrong. Amy is currently at a university here getting her PHD in science. She loves to read and has practically read the entire contents of the local library! Finally, there’s Julia. She has red hair and perfectly pale skin. I would say she’s my best friend here. She could never replace Maria though! If there’s one thing you need to know about Julia, it’s that she likes to party. And party in style! If you’re feeling down, there’s a party for that. If you’re feeling happy, there’s a party for that too. She will take any excuse to go to a party, no matter how ridiculous or lame. She’s dragged me to a couple so far and she seems to know everyone there, from the bouncer to the bartender, from the manager to the janitor.  She’s just so friendly!


I’m into my second week of work and we’re getting a new director. I hope he’s good because the old one wouldn’t stop yelling in Italian. He was a pudgy man who tended to smoke cigars on set. He had thin, greasy hair and a thick moustache which twitched when he was angry. This was a lot. Apparently, there had been quite a few complaints about him so now he has been fired because he was pressuring the star model, Olivia, to starve herself skinnier.

My friends, other models and even Olivia herself have been telling me to get on the other side of the camera to model for the company but I just don’t have that kind of confidence anymore.

I was adjusting the focus lenses on my camera, prepping for the shoot when I heard it. Well, didn’t hear it. The room fell silent except for the excited whispers of the models and staff in the room. I didn’t take any notice of it. It must have been the new director and, seeing as I am the head photographer, he would introduce himself to me in time. Julia pounced on my shoulder and whisper-squealed “Omg Roma have you seen him?” I shrugged her off and she ran around to face me. “He is so hawt! Hey, maybe you and him could like g out sometime.” She winked flirtatiously and I laughed as I gave her a light shove. “No way Jules, you know I don’t date anymore. I need to focus on my work.” I replied. She tossed her long and perfectly styled hair over her shoulder in mock hurt. “Oh, all right,” she said “I’ll just go talk to Ripley about this new eye candy.” With that she skipped of happily with no more than a glance over her shoulder.

 Just as I had turned around to finish fiddling with my camera settings, I heard a voice behind me say “Ahem, uh are you Roma?” I froze. I knew that voice. But it couldn’t be. It wouldn’t be. Would it? Slowly, I turned around to face that familiar voice. “Alex?”


He took a double take, looking from the sheet of paper in his hands (no doubt my profile) back up to my face, down then up again. “Roma? I can’t believe it’s really you!” he pulled me into a tight hug and I squeezed him back. A few of the models had turned to stare at us but I couldn’t care less. Alex was here and he was the new director!
