”Ok, well go on one condition, ” Paige said.

”Whats that, honey? ” Carrie asked.

”Im going to enroll in college and get an apartment. I think you and I both need a fresh start. Be my roommate? ” Paige asked, hopefully.

”Paige, why do you want an old lady like me as a roommate? I ain no fun, ” Carrie said with a laugh.

”I trust you. You

Carrie laughed. ”Alright, well help each other, honey. As long as you go to the doctor, Ill stick around as long as you want. ”


Present Day

Paige arrived at her apartment. She left the paperwork for her presentation in her car, locking it in the glove compartment. She walked up the stairs to her door and unlocked it, entering her home and locking the door behind her.

The apartment was neat and tidy. She had the necessary furniture to make it looked lived in, but there were do personal touches or decorations. A passerby would not be aware of who lived here if they were going through her things.

She went to her closet and looked at her clothes. She still didn know what to wear. Her phone buzzed, letting her know she had a message. She unlocked it and looked at the screen. Looking at the picture, there were two outfits hanging on hangers. They were hanging in a closet, but facing her rather than hanging normally. The first outfit was a suit. The second outfit was jeans and a dress shirt. But, looking more closely at the photograph, Paige saw that there was a mirror in between the two outfits that was reflecting the flash of the phone camera. She clicked on the picture and zoomed in, and then gasped and almost dropped her phone.

In the mirror, she could see a naked man with a towel wrapped around his waist. She couldn see his face because of the flash, but she saw the outline of his abs and the v that was dipping down into his towel-covered waist. Paige swallowed hard and read the message underneath: outfit 1 (left) or outfit 2 (right)?

Paige wondered if he knew that she could see his almost naked body in the picture. If he did know, then Paige was in dangerous territory. If he didn , well, he didn have common sense in Paiges eyes. But, Paige didn think it was possible for Nathaniel Donovan to make a move without it being calculated. She decided to pretend she didn notice and sent her reply.

She grabbed a pair of jeans, a black turtleneck sweater and a pair of black heels. She also grabbed a blue blazer with a black etching of flowers on it. She hurriedly stripped and put on the outfit. She looked in the mirror and approved. She opted against changing her hair or doing anything different with her makeup. She did put on a nude long lasting lipstick, though. She felt ready.

Paige looked at her phone and realized that she needed to leave in a few minutes. She changed her purse into a small black clutch and was ready to go. She exited her apartment and locked up before getting back into her car.
