Lily Stone is an average young female with a need for something. That’s when she comes across an agency called Loan Some. There, she is paid to participate in various events and just be there for show. Maybe this is the change she secretly needs in her life. Or maybe not. At her time in the agency, she is faced with romance, drama, and fear. She wants some change in her life, but maybe this will be too much for her to handle. Never know unless you try, right? Previously… Lily was drinking coffee at a café when she ran into Nicholas Tazmen. He gave her a scary feeling that made her want to leave, but he wanted her to stay and talk. Lily desperately tried to leave, and that’s when she spilled coffee on her pant leg, which ended up being her chance to get away from Nicholas. She went home and changed, and was lost in thought when her phone rang with a private number. Voters decided it was her boss that was calling.
Lily felt in her gut that she needed to answer her phone. The number was private, but she just couldn’t let it go to Voice Mail. Picking up her phone, she pressed the “answer” button and put it to her ear.
“Miss Stone, lovely to hear your voice. How have you been?”
“Oh, Mr. Bill.” Lily was relieved to hear it was her boss. “I’ve been good. How have you been?”
Mr. Bill chuckled. “Marvelous! Everything has been just great. I need you to come in tomorrow around four in the afternoon. I have another job for you. And I really think you will like this one.”
Lily could hear the pure joy in his voice and couldn’t help but smile.
“I’ll be there.”
“Great! I’ll see you then. Have a fantastic day.”
She hung up the phone and sighed a breath of relief. Another job. Good. Maybe this is just the thing I need to get my mind off of Nicholas. And from the sounds of it, it’s a good one. Let’s just hope so.
The next day, at four on the dot, Lily walked into the lobby. She had on a white blouse and a black skirt that seemed to flow with every step she made in her simple black high heels. She felt confident as she made her way to the projection room. Then something caught her eye. Though it was not a something, but more of a someone. Lily stopped in her tracks. Shock had overtaken her. Was that Isabelle?
Lily couldn’t believe her eyes. Isabelle was standing in the lobby, on the other side of the room. Luckily, she hadn’t noticed Lily, so Lily took the opportunity to hide behind a bookshelf. She stood there, hidden from view, as she tried to figure out why Isabelle was here. Then Damen walked into view.
Isabelle looked at Damen and smiled. “Hey there, handsome.”
Damen didn’t return the smile, though. He stood there looking at her with a cold look on his face.
“Oh, come on. Don’t give me that look. You know I came to see you.”
“Why? I don’t want to see you. Not after what you did to Lily at the wedding.”
Isabelle stuck out her bottom lip as if to pout. “Are you still mad at me about that? I didn’t mean it. I am protective over things that are mine.”
“I’m not yours.”
“But you were once.”
Lily was taken back. They dated?
Isabelle started to wrap her arms around Damen, but he stopped her and returned her hands to her side, looking at her with intensity. “Stop this. Go home. We are over.”
“We will never be over.”
“Why? Because you didn’t even want me until you met Lily. So is this a jealousy thing? And if it is, then you should be.”
Isabelle’s face got red. “Excuse me. I am NOT jealous of anyone. Especially that little tacky twig.”
“I’m over this, Isabelle. I’m escorting you out. I don’t need you to cause drama at my work.”
Isabelle crossed her arms and walked with Damen to the elevator. Lily was still hidden behind a bookshelf. She couldn’t seem to move. She was so confused at what she just heard. Suddenly, Lily felt like someone was hovering behind her.
“That was interesting, wasn’t it?”
Lily jumped a little and turned around to see Mr. Bill standing next to her, shaking his head.
“Damen has always had a way with women. But you are different.”
Lily was going to ask what he meant by that but was shocked by the sudden appearance of her boss. Mr. Bill smiled gently and outstretched his arm to the projection room. “Shall we go in now?”
Lily nodded her head, and they both went inside.
