Business had been picking up recently. It stayed slow then it would pick up; it was a cycle. So things were piling up too much for one man and he decided to hire someone who would be willing to help. He put a sign up advertising that he was looking to hire and a few days later a young woman came in and said she was interested. He gave her a friendly smile and offered her some water before they sat down for the interview.
The girl seemed friendly so far, but now it was time to see how she'd be in an interview. Benjamin had people working for him before over the past few years, but they were mostly temporary jobs. This would also be a temporary position, but for however long the girl would need it. He opened the folder with her resume in it and scanned it, nodding as he did so. It was pretty impressive. "So, Miss Kingston, what interested you in the job? Before we go any further I should let you know that you'd be doing a variety of things from selling instruments to doing a bit of easy repair work, and also loading up inventory. How much do you know about instruments?"

Nancy looked at herself in the mirror. She was dressed in a pair of khaki pants, a button down shirt, and nave cardigan. For shoes, she opted for a pair of oxfords in brown. Her hair was up in a ponytail, and she decided to wear her thick rimmed glasses instead of contact lenses. In her opinion, she looked sophisticated and put together. Hopefully the interviewer would think that as well. Quickly, she checked her watch for the time. She had a good hour to get to the mall and find the store again. It was always better to be early with time to spare than rushed.
When she got to the mall, she easily found the instrument store. She really hoped she got this position. It seemed like it would be a nice job to have, and the owner appeared to be a very nice man. Nancy introduced herself and offered a firm handshake before he sat her down to start the interview process.
"Mr. Mathers," she started, ready to answer his first question. "I play the piano. I've been playing since I was a little girl. I also play the saxophone. I've been playing that since fourth grade," she said. "I love music, and instruments. I don't know that much about repairs, but I'd love to learn." She was a bit nervous, so she stopped to collect her thoughts. "I'm a really fast learner," she added.
ELLEN ELIZABETH WATSON: That sounds familiar. I used to be that way. I still am, but I've learned to let go a little.

EMMA GRACE DANVERS (GOODMAN): Alec is too good to me, how did I deserve him. I'm such a perfectionist that I am afraid to screw up

ELLEN ELIZABETH WATSON: Everyone screws up. I've screwed up so many times I can't even keep track, but you just have to pick yourself up and learn to forgive yourself which can be the hardest thing to do

EMMA GRACE DANVERS (GOODMAN): Thank you so much Ellen. I know Alec is there to encourage me, but sometimes I feel he's put me on this great mother pedestal. I'm afraid of screwing up.

ELLEN ELIZABETH WATSON: I wouldn't worry too much Emma. You're very maternal, something I never was, and I managed to do it alone. If you ever need to talk about parenting, I'm always here

EMMA GRACE DANVERS (GOODMAN): I'm just worried about being a good mother. Since my own mother is no longer here to advice me. I just want to do her proud *nervous look*
Sept 18, 2013 22:09:25 GMT -5
EMMA GRACE DANVERS (GOODMAN): well I think Alec will be worried when it comes to that age. He'll probably buy a shotgun and ward off any boy who comes a courting.

ELLEN ELIZABETH WATSON: -laughs- you don't have to worry about that for a while. I told Victoria when she was going into sixth grade, but I think it also depends on the child
