Surprises and More Birthday Surprises
Raven was enjoying her morning coffee and had immersed herself into studying for her last two finals when her cell phone began to ring. She looked at the caller I.D. because she didn’t want to take any calls today if she didn’t have to, but it was Dante.
“Hi Raven. What are you doing?”
“I figured you would be, so I’ll make this quick. I just received THE phone call.” He said almost out of breath.
“What phone call, Dante?”
“For the gigantic photo shoot contract, I wanted so badly. I told you about it yesterday.”
“Oh, right, right. My head is always a bit fuzzy when I’m studying economics.” She said.
“That’s okay. My reason for calling is to tell you I just got a call just now and they gave me the contract on one condition, I come to Los Angeles for a photo shoot on Rodeo Drive. I sent a few pictures over early this morning and the V.P. of marketing called me. He wants me with my own personal model, and that means you, in LA for a couple days shoot, right away. I’m beside myself with excitement. I’ve got the contract, Raven!” He sounded like he was jumping up and down. “It’s for thousands of dollars. I’m going crazy.”
Imagining Dante being this excited made her smile. “Congratulation’s! This is wonderful news for you. When are you leaving?” She asked.
“When are WE leaving is the right question. We have to leave right away. You said you would come. You’re the best model I have for jewelry shoots and we can get this done in two days over there. I’ll have you back on the red eye flight in time for school on Monday if we leave tomorrow, Friday afternoon. I’ve already got the travel agency booking our flights and hotel rooms. Say yes because remember, I have a $6,000 bonus built in for you.” He knew that would seal the deal when he reminded her of the bonus money they had discussed.
“That’s right! A $6,000 bonus?” She gasped. “For that kind of money, I could miss my early class on Monday morning because the exam isn’t until Wednesday.” She was thinking rapidly. She had been so consumed with studies, she had forgotten about the bonus money and the Jewelry shoot in LA.
“I didn’t expect this to happen so quickly. I thought it would be after finals.
