After a night out, Quin returned to her apartment with her best friend and a man she had met at the club. The pair then retired to her bedroom and were awakened by a banging at the door. Quin’s boyfriend had come to her apartment. The girls managed to get the other man out without Quin’s boyfriend noticing. Then Quin let her boyfriend know that she had gone for a job interview and she was considering starting to work. Her boyfriend didn’t like the idea and broke up with her.

“Where’s Frankie?” Georgina asked, emerging from the bedroom.
“He left,” Quin answered in tears.
Georgina joined her on the couch and embraced Quin who was now crying hysterically. It took a couple of minutes for her to calm down but she did eventually. She let out a heavy sigh, wiped her tears and looked at her best friend who was still embracing her.
“It’s his loss, anyway. You’re a goddess and he was lucky that you even looked at him twice.”
“I need to start looking for colleges that offer design courses,” Quin said.
“You don’t get it, Gee. I need this job. Today was such a wake-up call. I can’t be an escort anymore. It’s ruining my life.”
“I understand but you need a cup of coffee first. This morning has started on the wrong foot.” Georgina suggested.
“Okay. Let’s go out for coffee. I need to leave this house, anyway.”
“Sure,” Georgina answered standing up.
“Thank you, Gee.”
“Don’t mention it.”
The pair walked into the bedroom and Quin made her way to the bathroom as Georgina looked through her closet.
“Do you want to wear pink or white?” She yelled to Quin.
“Whichever you choose.”
She picked out a pink outfit for Quin and laid it on the bed then sat on the accent chair beside the bed waiting for her friend. Quin got out of the shower, wrapped a towel around her and went to the bedroom.
“Your turn.” She said
“I’ll shower at my place. I need to get going anyway.”
“I thought we were going for coffee.”
“Something has come up but I’ll accompany you and get a takeaway.”
Several weeks had passed and Quin hadn’t applied to any design schools. Instead, she went frolicking every night with the man she had met the night after her job interview.
“You’re my lucky star.” He said to her as they had dinner.
“Ever since I met you I’ve got several investors interested in my business.”
“You deserve it because you treat me so well.” She said, placing her hand on his lap.
“Thank you, babydoll.”
Despite Quin’s desire to pursue her dream job, she was having a hard time letting go of her lifestyle. She had also not spoken to Georgina since the day she broke up with her boyfriend which made her feel down. Her attempts to contact her were futile. Georgina didn’t return her calls or messages. She had basically vanished without a trace.
However, Quin spotted a familiar face walking into the restaurant. She approached her to get a closer look.
“Quin… What are you doing here?”
“I could ask you the same question.”
“I’m here to meet a friend.”
“Why have you been avoiding me? I thought you were my best friend.”
“Well, you said that you didn’t want to be an escort anymore. I had to look for clients to survive. But as I can see, you’re still seeing that guy who slept at your place.” She said looking at the guy.
“It isn’t as easy as I thought.”
“That’s too bad but you should have thought about that before quitting on me.”
“I miss…” Before she could finish her sentence, Frankie walked in and joined the duo.
“What are you doing here?” He asked.
“Wait, what’s going on?” She asked after connecting the dots.
“It’s not what it looks like.”
“Georgina came to comfort me the day you broke up with me and we hit it off.”
“Is this why you haven’t been replying to my messages or returning my calls. You’re sleeping with my ex?! I thought you were better than this but I guess I was wrong.”
Before she could defend herself, Quin walked away and returned to her table. She couldn’t believe that her best friend of so many years could betray her like that. However, she always suspected that Georgina was secretly jealous of her and always wanted her life. She was happy to let her have her leftovers.
“Hello? May I speak to Miss Maria?” Quin asked over the phone.
“It’s Quin. Do you remember me?”
“Sure. Were you able to get into college?”
“That’s what I wanted to talk to you about. The next intake for most colleges is in three months. I have some time to kill and I was wondering if I could intern for you in the meantime.”
“I’d love to have you but as I told you, you need some kind of academic qualification and for an internship, you need to be enrolled in school.”
“Well, I had to try.”
“Okay. I need to go. Have a good day and wish you the best.”
“Thanks. Bye.” She said then hung up.
David had been standing close by and overheard the whole conversation. He poured himself a glass of juice then went to the living room.
“What was that all about?”
“Nothing. Don’t worry about it.”
Quin was cautious. The last time she shared her plans with someone, they broke up and he ended up dating her best friend. She didn’t want history to repeat itself. She excused herself to use the bathroom leaving her unlocked phone on the coffee table.
He picked it up then scrolled through her call list. He noticed a familiar number. As the bathroom door opened, he quickly locked her phone and placed it where she had left it.
“Hi Miss Maria.”
“It seems you’re quite the lucky girl. You got the job.”
“Wait, what? How did that happen?”
“One of our senior board members thinks you’re fit for the job. He says that he knows you personally and he has never met a more talented, hardworking and passionate girl than you.”
“The one and only Mr. David Wanjala. Is he your uncle or something?”
Quin’s heart skipped a beat when she heard the name. It wasn’t her uncle but her client. He had recognized Miss Maria number on her phone and figured Quin was looking for a job with her. His endorsement was all it took for her to get her dream job. If she knew, she would have told him a long time ago.
“Yes, he’s my uncle.” She lied. They didn’t need to know her relation to David.
“That’s so good. I look forward to seeing you on Monday.”
Okay. Thank you.” She hung up and then smiled to herself.
Her dream had finally come true and it took the help of an unlikely person.
“Why did you do it?” She asked David.
“Well, as I said, you’re my lucky star.” He answered.
