It just made him gag. He loved his friends. He really did. It made every single woman around them get that hopeful look in their eyes just before it turned determined. Then right before his eyes, once level headed women turned into vultures, setting their sights on the single men around them in an assessing manner. Hell, five women were giving him that look right now, probably trying to determine what kind of husband and father he would make. Would he worship her? Be there for her? Be faithful?
Take out the trash? The answer was pretty simple. Hell no. Marriage was not for him and every single woman out there should be thankful that someone like him stayed clear of the altar. Plain and simple, he was not the marrying type. Never had been and never would be.
He did, for the right people that is and the right people most certainly did not include him. That was too much commitment and way too much drama for him. No, that was just way too much to expect of him. He was the guy that you went to for fun and always had been. For those who thought they could change him…. He made damn sure of that.
Even Nick held up his glass of scotch in their direction. Dana deserved this more than anyone. Seven years ago she walked into their offices a broken down woman trying to keep it together for her two kids. Where most women would be bitter in her situation, Dana had thrived. She pulled her life together and shared her heart with the world. Then Edward stepped into her life and showed her what love really meant.
Where the hell was this romantic shit coming from? He needed another drink and possibly a willing woman or two. He glanced around at the marriage minded vultures and scratched the last part. He just needed a drink. He made his way through the thick crowd of well wishers to the bar where he had to wait for twenty women to finish flirting with the bartenders and place their orders.
Nick sighed, giving up any hope of getting his drink anytime soon. That party was memorable. Many of them demanded your head on a platter. With each drink the guests were offered a lap dance for half price and a few were offered a Happy Ending. Go nuts. Nick gestured lazily to the crowd. Wrong anytime soon. She took a deep breath and exhaled slowly. This was no big deal, nothing whatsoever. This was just a job, a new job, the start of her new life. Nothing to worry about.
It was just a brand new stage in her life because ofHer stomach flipped over just thinking about her ex-almost boyfriend. Oh no, make that her new brother-in-law, and her ever loving sister Caitlyn. That fun little surprise was the reason why she was here.
She needed this desperately. This was going to be the start of the new Jamie. Not that she hated herself. No more.
That was the old Jamie. The new Jamie was going to start saying no. She was going to take charge of her life. It was the main reason she sold her internet publishing company and took this job. She wanted, no, needed to get out in the world and this was the perfect opportunity.
This job would force her out of her shell and into the world. She pushed her glasses back up her nose and did her best not to vomit. Taking one last fortifying breath, she grabbed her oversized purse, the one that really should be called a bag, and opened her door. After catching the small heel of her shoe on the floor mat and fighting her way to freedom she opened her car door and stood up. Of course this would happen.
She somehow managed to shut her bag in the car. Her cheeks burned as the sound of laughter reached her ears. Keeping her eyes and face averted so that no one would be able to identify her later and point and laugh at her, she disarmed the car alarm and removed her bag. This time when she closed the car door she made sure to remain a safe distance away. Clutching the purse strap tightly in her hands she headed for the front entrance of Rerum Publishing House, praying nothing else went wrong.
She kept her breathing even as she walked up the sidewalk, into the lobby and to the elevator. She stepped inside, pressed the button for the fifth floor and exhaled slowly. Several people in the elevator threw her curious looks, but she ignored them.
