Alexa: The Lost Recordings Vol. 1

Alexa: The Lost Recordings Vol. 1

I walk in the door of the apartment and see Katie sitting there in a 50’s costume that is almost cliché. A pink poodle skirt with the full black crinolines underneath, a white short-sleeve blouse all cinched together with a wide black belt around her waist. She has her hair done up in a high pony tail and she is wearing a pair of pink, jeweled cat eye glasses complete with a chain to let them hang around her neck. I can’t stop my laughter. I can see the look on Katie’s face. I know she does not take lightly to be laughed at. I drop my purse and bag on the table. “What are you doing, trying on your costume for tomorrow night?” I ask my big sister who continues to sneer.

“No dummy. The thing is tonight” Oh shit I think as I stare at Katie in disbelief. Jenny had to attend a charity function for the Thompson Foundation and she had invited both of us along. Katie was not exactly thrilled about going but had reluctantly agreed, I on the other hand had no choice. After we found out it was 50’s themed both Katie and I tried to back out, but to no avail. I had tried to give the old ‘I can’t, I got a thing’ line which had not worked since 2001, as the fact that I was now shaking in my knee-high boots showed. A slightly evil laugh came out of Katie’s mouth as she saw the panic cross my face. ‘You think this is bad, wait until you see yours.” She tells me. The panic is moving into a full-fledged terror attack as I hear a voice coming from my and Jenny’s bedroom.

“Is that you babe? Get back here and get changed!’ My girlfriend tells me. I slump my head as I shuffle back to the bedroom as a show for Katie, but I am kind of excited for tonight. If anything, it is a chance to dress up in an ultra-feminine costume. I just wasn’t ready for it to be tonight. I was kind of excited for my own poodle skirt. My excitement changed to fear as I entered the bedroom. Standing there was my beautiful girlfriend not in a poodle skirt, but a car hop waitress outfit and in her hand was a matching one on a hanger. The costume consisted of a red and white mini skirt fluffed out by crinolines, a matching short sleeve blouse that Jenny had opened to an excitingly low spot. A little white apron is tied around her waist. On her head was a matching red and white cap. Her feet were adorned by a pair of red open toed Mary Jane shoes with a three-inch heel and little white socks trimmed in lace. The final touch was a red scarf tied around her neck and a pencil in her ear. Jenny looked hot in it, but I had my doubts that I would look as good.

“I can’t wear that.” I tell her as I walk up and give her a kiss. Jenny instantly begins to pout. ‘You have to” she tells me. ‘I chose this especially for us. Don’t you think it’s sexy” she says with a playful grin on her face.

“It’s quite sexy” I tell Jenny as I move my hands under the crinolines and begin to slowly massage her rear end. Jenny lets out a low moan and we kiss once again but more deeply and lustfully. “Not now babe. I promise latter” she says as she pushes me away. I call her a spoilsport as I begin stripping off my sweater and mini skirt and taking the costume from Jenny. Twenty minutes later the two of us are standing in front of our large stand up mirror.

‘We look hot” Jenny says. “Well you do Lex. You have great legs.” I refute my girlfriend’s comments, telling her she is the one that looks hot. We exchange another deep kiss before Jenny grabs two round trays and we head out to the living room to find our still crabby roommate who instantly breaks out into laughter.

“I’ll have a cheeseburger and a Cherry coke please” She tells us as she laughs. “Come on have a glass of wine before the cab gets here. You two look great. But I am extremely glad I am not wearing anything that short.” Katie admits as she hands each of us a glass of Chardonnay.

“Forget that, I need something a little stronger if I am going to be seen in this” I say as I head for the freezer and pull out the bottle of Stoly and down two quick shots. We don’t have to wait long, as our cab has arrived to take us to reception room downtown.

As the three of us walk in, we are greeted by Jenny’s cousin Julie. I have gotten to know Julie well over the last few months, so I brace myself for the shit I am about to get. “Well, well you two” Julie says as we come into view. Julie is dressed as Olivia Newton-John from Grease, complete to the spandex and her fiancé is dressed as John Travolta. Andrew eyes the two of us up a bit and breaks out into laughter “Where do you two find these outfits?” He asked. Somehow, he is aware of our dress-up games and I give Jenny a little look as I hear the two cousins break out in laughter. Jenny looks at me and quiets her laughter enough to ask me ‘What?” I know the two have been sharing a bit and I take the teasing in the fun that is given.

We continue to mingle through the crowd. The one downfall of this party is the Chairperson of the foundation will not be in attendance. Her quote was “I am too old to come up to that damn Ice Box for a night of dress up” I love Jenny’s grandmother and really wished she were here, it would give me someone to talk to. I know so few people here, at least personally. I know many of the guests by sight and several seem to know Jenny and we make small talk. Thankfully none of the single gentlemen there try and put on the moves on us as it is pretty clear from the light kisses we share that we are together. Katie seems uninterested in any of the guys, since she has found a new one, the big loser.

We finally find Jenny’s father who is holding court in a gold lame suit like Elvis. His hair was slicked back and an attempt of a cowlick just like the King. When he sees Jenny and I he simply shakes his head and asks ‘What am I going to do with you two?” as a smile comes across his face.

Katie pipes up “I know. Welcome to my world Mr. T. You don’t have to live with them.”

The timing was perfect, Jenny thought. Lex had a 2:00 class and then a 3:30 appointment with Dr. Burke. Alexa being gone would give her plenty of time to make Alexa dinner for a change. That Lex had become the house cook was natural, she was after all the best cook in the house. But she had been working with Jenny since day one and it was time for Jenny to show her girlfriend where her skills were at. Plus, Katie was not going to be home until late tonight. It would make for a fun night. So, Jenny went to the grocery store and bought a pork roast and was all set to do it up right for her soul mate. She knew Alexa loved pork roast with all the trimmings.

After the market, Jenny went home and began all the preparations for the wonderful meal that was going to occur. She placed the roast on a shallow roasting pan surrounded by onions and carrots and began peeling potatoes. This was not going to be some half assed attempt at dinner, Jenny was doing it up right. Roast pork, mash potatoes and gravy, carrots, warm rolls. The works. The only place Jenny had cheated was the desert. While she was still learning, she really could only do so much in terms of baking and besides she needed all the time she could just to get the main meal done. With those things in mind, she stopped at Baker’s Square and bought a French Silk pie. Soon all the prep work was completed and Jenny looked at the time. She was ahead of schedule. This brought a smile to her face because as she was getting everything ready, a slightly evil idea entered her mind.

After putting the roast in the oven and beginning to boil the potatoes, Jenny made her way back to ‘her’ bedroom. It was her bedroom in name only. It had become a very large closet with a bed in it. The bed had been used once since Jenny and Katie had moved with Alexa, and Alexa was the one who had slept in it. Jenny began digging through the racks and found the dress she was looking for. She pulled it out along with the crinolines that made the skirt of the dress stand out. She went over and stripped of her clothes and put on the vintage undergarments she had bought for when the time came for her to wear the ‘June Cleaver’ dress as it had become to be known as by the two lovebirds. She slipped on the open bottom girdle and attached the sheer nylons to the garters. This was followed by the ‘bullet’ bra she had discovered along with the girdle at a vintage shop downtown. She could feel a little change in herself as she donned the clothes. She felt demurer, more like a woman of the fifties. After slipping on the crinolines she stepped into the blue and white polka dot dress. Jenny then went over and tied a ribbon in her hair and then found the 2 inch blue pumps Alexa had bought to go with the dress. Standing in front of the mirror Jenny rolled her eyes. “These games are getting a little silly, but they are fun” she thought to herself as she returned to the kitchen.

As she turned the corner and all hell broke loose. There was smoke billowing from the oven as Jenny went and checked on the roast. How long had she been getting ready she thought? She pulled the roast from the oven and dropped it on the stove top. Next, she checked the potatoes. The water had boiled off so she quickly added more water so she could keep the potatoes going. After a few minutes, they were finally done. Now it was time to whip the potatoes. She had seen Alexa do this many times and thought it wouldn’t be an issue. She pulled the butter and milk from the refrigerator and emptied the kettle of potatoes into a bowl. Before she began, she turned off the oven and threw the roast back in to keep it warm until Lex came home. She then returned to the potatoes adding the necessary milk and butter she had seen Alexa use and hit the button on the electric hand mixer. As soon as the hand mixer met up with the potatoes, the potatoes began flying around the kitchen. There were potatoes on the wall, on the ceiling, in her hair and on the floor. It was a disaster area. Jenny slumped to the floor and began crying. Her great hope of making Lex a perfect dinner was ruined! There was nothing else to do but cry. And as she sat there the smoke began billowing out of the oven again, enough to set off the smoke detectors. Jenny could not move, all she could do was sit there and cry.

At the moment the smoke detector started to go off, Alexa returned from her appointment with Dr. Burke. Immediately she ran to the kitchen. She turned the oven off broil and removed the now black piece of meat from the oven. She then turned off the still running hand mixer and sat down next to her girlfriend. “Are you alright babe?” Alexa asked Jenny.

“No, I’m not. I wanted to surprise you and make you dinner, but I couldn’t! I just ruined everything! I’m never cooking again!” Jenny wailed as she buried her head into Alexa. Alexa could recognize how hard Jenny had tried, but she was still learning. She propped Jenny back and looked her in the eye. She completely sympathized with her and looked down on her girlfriend who was even wearing the 50’s era dress that Alexa had bought a few weeks back. Alexa realized it with a laugh that Jenny would have a difficult time becoming the ‘housewife’ that Marilyn accused Alexa of doing to her daughter. But that didn’t matter, she would love Jenny know matter what. The cooking would come, and Alexa was willing to wait. Reaching down, she wiped some potatoes from Jenny’s face. Knowing she needed to lighten the mood a bit, she stuck the potatoes in her mouth.

‘Hey these potatoes are pretty good”

##########

“Oww! Jen come here!” I yell out at my girlfriend as I lie in the snowbank outside our apartment building. Pain shooting through my ankle, elbow and butt. Jenny comes rushing up.

“Are you OK? What did you do?” My girlfriend asks.

Slightly irritated I look up at her. “I decided to make snow angels. What do you think I did?” I say slightly irritated with my girlfriend’s question. I soon realized that my irritation was not something that was appreciated by her.

“No need to get bitchy” Jenny says to me as she stands over me.

“I’m sorry babe. I just hurt. Can you please help me up?” I ask, looking for forgiveness. Jenny reaches down and extends her hand to me. I take it and slowly pull myself up. I think I am fine before the pain hits my ankle again. I cry in pain. Jenny just rolls her eyes as I continue to whine about my ankle. “It hurts!” I say between the whimpering.

“How long have you lived here? Your whole life?" Jenny asks sarcastically before going into her lecture. “I know that you have only been a woman for a short time, but you should know better than to wear 4-inch spike heels when its icy out”

“I know, but the boots looked so cute with this skirt” I whine as I lean on Jenny as she helps me back into our apartment building and to the elevator. “What have I created?” she asks the sky as she props me in the corner of the elevator and pulls out her phone.

‘Kate, can you come down to the elevator? Yeah ALY slipped and hurt her ankle.” A quick giggle and Jenny hangs up.

“I wish you wouldn’t call me that.” I pout at my girlfriend’s name for me.

"Aly, Aly, Aly!” She proclaims before the sweetness returns. ‘I’m sorry babe, but it wasn’t real smart, was it?” She asks. I just tell her “No” in the little girl voice I have been working on when I want to guilt her. Jenny just started laughing at me as the door to elevator opens. Standing there is my ‘sister’ Katie. If I thought Jenny had been critical of my choice, Katie just stood there arms folded staring me down.

“What were you thinking Alexa?” Katie asks.

“I don’t want to hear it Kate. I just thought the boots looked cute with the skirt, that’s all.” I reply.

Reaching out, Katie slips my arm around her shoulder, while Jenny does the same. My two roommates begin helping me back to the apartment. Kate looks over at me. “You know there are times I think you are blonde Alexa. You know better than to wear shoes like when we have had the weather we have had.”

“I know” I say

“And you Blondie. You are just as guilty as the airhead here.” Katie says to my girlfriend.

Defensively Jenny responds to Katie’s accusations. “Me? What did I do?”

“You corrupted her.” Katie says to her longtime roommate. Jenny giggles at this, because she knows that she is guilty as charged. The two girls help me onto the couch before Katie announces she has to leave for work. Jenny leans in and gives me a big kiss. She asks if I need anything. I try the pouty look again and nod my head.

“What do you need babe?” Jenny asks. Still feeling the pain, I tell her I need some ice for my ankle which Jenny goes and gets. As she returns, she begins taking off my boots so she can put the ice on it. I yell out in pain as she works the knee-high boot off. “Oh, knock it off you big baby.”

“I’m not a baby” I say in mild protest, pouting as I say it.

“Yes, you are.” Jenny says as she plants a light kiss on my ankle before putting the ice pack on it. She moves up and straddles me as I sit there with my ankle on the coffee table wrapped in ice. Wrapping her arms around my neck she leans in real close. “You are a baby, but your my baby.” She says as she lays a long kiss on me. After a moment, I cry out a little again.

“What hurts now?” Jenny asks.

Ashamedly I say “My butt. I must have bruised it when I fell.”

“Well I’m NOT kissing that”

“Is that you babe? Get back here and get changed!’ My girlfriend tells me. I slump my head as I shuffle back to the bedroom as a show for Katie, but I am kind of excited for tonight. If anything, it is a chance to dress up in an ultra-feminine costume. I just wasn’t ready for it to be tonight. I was kind of excited for my own poodle skirt. My excitement changed to fear as I entered the bedroom. Standing there was my beautiful girlfriend not in a poodle skirt, but a car hop waitress outfit and in her hand was a matching one on a hanger. The costume consisted of a red and white mini skirt fluffed out by crinolines, a matching short sleeve blouse that Jenny had opened to an excitingly low spot. A little white apron is tied around her waist. On her head was a matching red and white cap. Her feet were adorned by a pair of red open toed Mary Jane shoes with a three-inch heel and little white socks trimmed in lace. The final touch was a red scarf tied around her neck and a pencil in her ear. Jenny looked hot in it, but I had my doubts that I would look as good.

“I can’t wear that.” I tell her as I walk up and give her a kiss. Jenny instantly begins to pout. ‘You have to” she tells me. ‘I chose this especially for us. Don’t you think it’s sexy” she says with a playful grin on her face.

“It’s quite sexy” I tell Jenny as I move my hands under the crinolines and begin to slowly massage her rear end. Jenny lets out a low moan and we kiss once again but more deeply and lustfully. “Not now babe. I promise latter” she says as she pushes me away. I call her a spoilsport as I begin stripping off my sweater and mini skirt and taking the costume from Jenny. Twenty minutes later the two of us are standing in front of our large stand up mirror.

‘We look hot” Jenny says. “Well you do Lex. You have great legs.” I refute my girlfriend’s comments, telling her she is the one that looks hot. We exchange another deep kiss before Jenny grabs two round trays and we head out to the living room to find our still crabby roommate who instantly breaks out into laughter.

‘I’ll have a cheeseburger an, stop it! Wait.” Katie says and looks up at the corner of the ceiling. “Why do they get the hot costumes and I am stuck here looking like a reject from Grease? Is this what you really want Kris?”

A minute later, a sandy harried woman dressed in a dark grey knee length pencil skirt, a white long sleeved blouse and three inch black pumps walks into the room. She walks up to Katie and asks. “What’s the problem Kate?”

Katie begins a minor pout “Jenny and Alexa always get the hot costumes and I am either stuck looking like a normal person or get reduced to wearing some frumpy costume. I’m the single one. I’m the one looking for a guy! Why can’t I have something the shows me off a bit and gets some boys all excited.”

“She can have my costume.” Alexa pipes up. The woman shot her a look that let her know to shut up. Meanwhile, Jenny slapped Alexa on the arm and giggled away.

The sandy harried woman pulls her glasses off, places them on the top of her head and begins rubbing the bridge of her nose. “I didn’t know you felt this strongly about it Kate. I thought you appreciated that these two lunatics enjoyed dressing crazy and you got to be the normal one.”

“I do Kris.” Katie states “But occasionally, it would be nice to be a little crazy. Maybe not the Sexy Nurse costume crazy but, you know, something.” Kris understood what her young charge was saying and put an arm around her.

‘Katie I understand and don’t worry I have big plans for you. Just relax and let it happen OK? I’ll write something in for you when I think it’s right OK?” Kris said. Katie nods and calms herself. Kris turns and heads back out the door. Instantly she is on her smartphone and on BCTS. Where she types out a message to her BFF and mentor Debbie.

‘I don’t know how you can have so many characters. I can barely deal with the three children I have. UGH! But then again, I don’t know what I would do without them. :-) K, xoxo’

As I walked through the door of the apartment I was practically tackled by blonde blob screaming “I did it!”

“Did what?” I ask as I am also greeted with a big kiss and huge hug.

“I made dinner!” Jenny exclaimed. I was in awe over how excited she was as she announced her achievement. When I commented that I thought she was done cooking after last week’s ‘mishap’ she playfully smacked me in the arm. ‘I thought I was too, but I really wanted to do this for you babe.” Jenny took my hand and led me to the dining room and had me sit down. She then leaned over and lit two candles that were sitting on the table and turned off the lights as she returned to the kitchen. She came back with a bowl of mixed salad and two bowls. She proceeded to toss the salad and then headed back to the kitchen while I dished out salad for the both of us. She returned with two plates of Spaghetti and meatballs. I was impressed.

“You did this yourself?” I asked. I received an enthusiastic nod.

"Yep. I made the sauce from scratch, just like you showed me. I made the meatballs and only whined twice about it. Cut everything up for the salad and didn’t need stitches. Even baked the garlic bread.” The smile on her face was huge. I was proud of her, maybe there was hope for her. After taking a forkful of salad, I prepared to dig into the pasta. As I twirled the spaghetti on my fork, Jenny sat in eager anticipation for my reaction. I will admit I was a little nervous. I put the forkful of noodles into my mouth. I was pleasantly surprised.

“This is great.” I say to Jenny. The smile returns and she begins bouncing up and down in her chair as I enjoy her meal. And I wasn’t lying, it was great. I dug into the meatballs and had a similar reaction. After I swallowed my food I leaned into Jenny and gave her a kiss. “You did a great job babe.” I reached over and grabbed the bottle of wine and poured us each a glass. We spent the next several minutes enjoying the excellent meal and each other. I was really impressed that she pulled it off. When we were finished, Jenny and I cleared the table and put the leftovers in the fridge and the dirty dishes in the dishwasher to be processed. When all our chores are completed, we head back to the living room with the bottle of wine.

"Why don’t you go get changed and come back out and we will watch a movie.” Jenny tells me. I can tell she has more planned so I head back to our room where I find the royal blue camisole and tap pant set that we had purchased way back when this all began. I quickly strip off my skirt, tights and sweater and don my almost forgotten sleepwear. I put the matching kimono on and return to the living room where I find Jenny in the outfit that probably drives me crazier than anything, the infamous Gold Gopher Hockey Jersey. Not that her wearing it was anything special, but just the sight of it made me realize that she had planned everything. She leads me over to the couch where she grabs the big quilt and wraps the two of us in before we fall back onto the couch. “So, what’s next?” I ask.

Jenny smiles at me. “I thought we would kick back and watch a movie. How does ‘The Force Awakens’ sound?”

My smile widens. “It sounds perfect. You know you didn’t have to do all of this for me.” I tell Jenny.

“Yes, I did.” She replied. "I love you more than anything in the world and I wanted to make it a special night. I owe all my happiness to you Lex. I love you”

A tear come to my eye as I share a long sensual kiss with the beautiful person I am cuddled up with. She had already done so much for me but this was just perfect. As we break away, I look at her and say “You know we are college students and it is Friday night. We should be out partying it up.”

Jenny gives me another kiss. “Sure, we could, but I would rather be where we are right now.” as we cuddle under the quilt into each other and she hits play on the remote.

##########

One of the joys, perhaps downfalls, of being with Jenny has been the social obligations she has because of her family. While in the past, Jenny had been forced to go to these events alone, since we have been together she has drug me along to these events. Whether it’s a luncheon for women’s rights (one of my favorites) or the costume party we attended a couple of weeks back for the Children’s Hospital, Jenny gets pulled in many different directions just because of her name.

Tonight, was going to be another one of those nights. Tonight, we were attending a fundraiser for the Minnesota Orchestra. It was a black-tie affair which meant evening gowns for Jenny and I! Since I had never gone to prom as a girl this was my chance to really dress up for the first time. Jenny was excited too. She loved to get all dressed up in her fancy gowns, but I think she was also excited for me. And the even better part was that she had also gotten a ticket for Katie. So, that meant the three of us would all be going. Katie, while not the overt girly-girl like me and Jenny, seemed just as excited too. She kept saying it was her chance to be with the elite of Minnesota. Jenny and I kept teasing her that she just wanted to dress sexy and troll for rich, eligible bachelors.

Being that we had time, Jenny and I decided to conserve some water as we prepared for the evening’s festivities. Our ‘water conversation’ was unfortunately interrupted by the spoilsport who lived with us. “No Jexy time now. At least if there is going to be Jexy time, get out of the shower so I can use it.” we heard Katie yelling from the other side of the door. We giggle and get out of the shower and wrap ourselves in towels, still dripping wet from the shower and surrender the bathroom to our roommate. We head into our room where we complete drying each other. Just this gets the two of us going and soon we collapse back on the bed for a little more Jexy time.

Following our little tryst, we get up and began preparing ourselves for the formal affair. Jenny and I had gone to her parent’s house the other day and did a little ‘shopping’ for our dresses for the night. Between Jenny’s collection of gowns and her mother’s we had plenty to choose from. I picked a Silver beaded Adrianna Papell gown that belonged to Jenny. It had a Bateau neckline which would allow me to wear my forms but not show any cleavage. It was sleeveless and long. I felt like a princess when I wore it. Jenny had taken a Eliza J Lace Bodice gown from her mother that was beige. It had a Jewel neck and was sleeveless as well. She looked absolutely gorgeous in it. As we got dressed together, we both decided to wear the same lingerie, but in different colors that matched our dresses. Jenny’s in champagne, mine in silver. Matching strapless bras, thongs, garter belt and nude silk stockings. I had not felt this incredibly sexy since New Year’s. It was hard for the two of us to keep our hands off each other, but we managed. We both kept our hair down for the evening and applied sexy night time makeup and similar 4-inch strappy stiletto heels. When we looked at ourselves in our large mirror, we were just as excited as we had been on New Year’s. When I tried to show my girlfriend just how beautiful she was, she slapped my hand. Giggling away she told me latter, “I promise” before laying one last kiss one me, careful not to mess our lipstick.

The two of us went out to the living room and opened a bottle of champagne we had ‘borrowed’ from Jenny’s parent’s wine cellar and waited for our roommate. Just as we clinked glass as a toast for a night of fun, Katie came out. Now you should realize I have known Katie since she was a tomboy in middle school. That tomboy was no longer in sight. To say Katie looked stunning would be an understatement. At first, Jenny and I just stood there in awe as Katie entered the room. Then Jenny playfully put her hands in front of my face. “No looking Lex! You might leave me for her.”

Katie was wearing a Navy Vera Wang gown that was also sleeveless, but that is where the similarities to our dresses ended. The dress had a plunging Sweetheart Neckline and a long slit up the front, a slit that would get some people excited. If that didn’t the low-cut back would. “You like?” Katie asked. We practically attacked her, telling her how hot she looked. Jenny asked where she got it. “I thought it was about time Sarah got some commission from me. She picked it out and I couldn’t resist, but I might have to pick up some extra shifts” Katie told is as the three of us giggled away. I poured her a glass of champagne and the three of us toasted to the night, “let the fun begin.” It wasn't long before Jenny received a call from her father saying he was down front. He had ‘borrowed’ his mother’s Rolls Royce and we were riding with him to the gala. Jenny had borrowed some fur wraps from her mother’s collection. It was a shame she would not be able to attend, but we made sure that at least her clothing would make an appearance.

Mr., Thompson was very polite in commenting on our appearance. “I guess I will be escorted by the three most beautiful young women there tonight” Marty said, making us all blush. We enjoy some champagne that Mr. Thompson had brought along. Jenny commented on the taste, saying that she had never had the champagne from this label. “You are so full of it Jennifer Ann Thompson. I noticed that a bottle was missing.” Katie and I laughed out loud as Jenny acted ashamed. Mr. Thompson joined in the laughter as well. Picking on Jenny must be a Thompson family trait.

Soon we arrived in front of Orchestra Hall, where the door was opened for us by an attendant and Mr. Thompson exited first, followed be the three of us. Surprisingly, Mr. Thompson took Katie by the arm, leaving Jenny and I to walk in hand in hand. The whole scene was crazy. I had never been at anything this glamorous before in my life. While Jenny has experienced it several times, I tried to soak it up. As we entered, a waitress came up to us with more champagne. We mingled around with Mr. Thompson who introduced us to all the big wheels in town. Governors, Senators, CEOs, and various other public officials. It was incredible. Katie was beaming the whole time. Soon a small quintet of the orchestra began playing some dance music. Mr. Thompson excused himself and went over to talk to Senator Donaldson about something leaving the three of us. The three of us soon became a focal point of some attention. Soon a handsome man of about 26 came up to us. Jenny and I had been working on our polite refusals for some time, but we didn’t need to use it right now. The tall, dark and handsome young man went right up to Katie and asked her to dance. The smile on Katie couldn’t be bigger. As the gentleman escorted to the dance floor I could see Katie look up and say.

“Thanks Kris”

##########

Katie came home from another night of whinny dinners. One woman complained about the fish being cold. Katie put up with the usual complaints about the way a customer’s steak was prepared or how the bartender had mixed the wrong cocktail. But through all these complaints, it was worth it. The tips were good and she needed the money.

When she entered her apartment, she witnessed a sight she had seen many times. It was the sight of two women curled up on the couch wrapped in a blanket sleeping. The TV was the only light in the room. It was a sight she was so used to, she hardly gave it a second glance. But tonight, she stopped and looked down on her two roommates and smiled. She had known the blonde for just a few years but had become close to her, almost as close as sisters. The Brunette she had known for ever. Thy had been best friends since middle school when she was known as Alex and was a boy, but now they truly were sisters. She looked down at two people who had once been so sad that their lives seemed pointless. But they had found each other and happiness had taken over their lives. Sure, at times they were a little crazy and would do things that would make Katie blush, but it was all part of their fun. She was just glad she didn’t know all the things they did.

Katie went over and turned off the TV and headed for her room. Before she reached it, she stopped and turned.

‘Good night Jexy! Sweet dreams.”
