My phone vibrated in my pocket, “hang on” I said to my boyfriend, Gabe who was in the middle of a sentence.
I looked down on the screen, “it’s Nungkari” I told Gabe, Nungkari was one of the rehabilitations centers, they called with a possible client. I was a sober coach, I helped people sobering up, and followed them around all day, and lived at their houses to make sure they wouldn’t drink or take drugs. I hadn’t had a client for a while; I had had about 4 clients so far.
“Hi, this is Charli Williams” I said, walking a bit away from Gabe.
“Hello Charli this is Dr. John Waters from the Nungkari treatment center in Sydney, I have a case for you, I sent it a while ago, have you looked at it yet?”
I hurried over to my computer and turned it on, “no, I’ve been away all week, I’ll take a look at it now, hang on” I answered.
I opened the email from John, and put him on speakerphone. “They want you to start Monday”
I looked at it, it was an 18-year old boy named Luke Hemmings, and he has been doing drugs for a while now”
“I’ve heard that name before” I said chewing on my lip, trying to remember where I’ve heard it. “Yeah, he’s in a band called 5 seconds of summer, it’s the management who contacted us, they picked you because you were the youngest” the Doctor stated, “it’s okay if you say no, it’s really difficult working with famous people, you’ll have to hide, nobody can know who you are, I even think you’ll have to get a fake name”
“I’ll take it” I said, already very excited to start, this was a new challenge, it was probably going to be hard because he was famous. I said goodbye to Doctor Waters.
“Did you get a new client?” Gabe asked me, his brown eyes pierced mine, “yeah, I’ll start on Monday” he smiled but it didn’t reach his eyes, “I’ll miss you” he said taking my hands, “I don’t think it’s that far away, and we can still see each other, it’s only four weeks, but I probably have to spend Christmas with him” Gabe groaned, “that’s a long time without you, and then I won’t even have you for Christmas?” I shook my head, and gave him an apologetic look, “it’s okay, it’s your job” I smiled and pressed my lips against his.
