Two Years Earlier


                                            Two Years Later

 

The year is 2014, Rosalinda a girl with long flowing platinum blond-hair; that was at the moment fixed in loose ringlets. She was in the process of shooting photo’s for the next Issue of Holiday Girl.


Holiday Girl is a very popular magazine with only the most beautiful, high achieving young women make it to the cover of the magazine.

Holiday Girl was only released around Christmas and put along the shelves around New Year’s Eve. It was always Rose’s, dream to be on the cover of Holiday Girl.

Stylish Girl magazine, another popular magazine in the press, Rosalinda had made the cover of that, at least three times.  The blond bombshell had become popular in a matter of twelve months.


                                             Two Years Earlier

 

Rosalinda; started out as a poor girl, being in an apartment, struggling to pay her rent once a month. Her life changed on a warm summer afternoon, when she was walking round  town.  She saw a woman fighting with some boxes.  Rose; wanting to aid the woman; walked over to her, “Hi, you look like you’re in a battle with those boxes, is there anything I can do to help you out? The young blond asked, getting behind the woman.




The woman set her packages down turned to face her; the woman looked at her with long lashed sea green eyes.

The woman looks as if she could be on a magazine cover she was clothed in a tan shirt dress with long black stockings and fury cowgirl boots.


Rose; looked as realization hit, the woman was Annette Micah Jones, former model and now popular boutique owner.


“You could get the door, if you don’t mind, that would be helpful.” Annette stated crashing Rose’s thoughts bringing her back to reality.




Rosalinda nodded her head, walking over to Annette’s store opening the door, Annette, who now had her boxes entered the store, Rose; closed the doorway entering the store herself.





“Since you helped me, I should give you a token of gratitude, you just simply name it and I will do my best to help you out,” Annette stated with a smile. Rosalinda looked around the classy store, “Why don’t I offer you another task, you can take it out and if you pass you can work here, the pay is decent,” Annette stated once more.  Rose looked at the adult female in front of her who continued, “My husband is coming to buy some clothes and you seem to know your way with matching and making new outfits, Leo needs a good eye in making outfits with his job, he needs to look good.” Annette looked from an isle of clothes to Rose, “What do you say?”

Rosalinda smiled in excitement saying, “Are you giving me a job to hunt clothes for celebrities, this is the best day ever! I'm so in charge.”



Annette smiled, looking at Rose as the door chime rung, this caused both of the women to turn their heads towards the door. Annette smiled, “Hi, Leo.  I got a young employee and she has agreed to give you, your outfit for tonight’s concert.”



Leonard looked at Rosalinda weary, “She seems a little young, Annette. What would she know about my style?” Leonard stated his focus not leaving the face of Annette.




“I have been to your concerts a couple times; you seem to always be wearing black edgy clothes with the slightest touch of Gothic accessories.” Rose said in attempts to defend herself.




Leonard looked at Rosalinda then at Annette, “Very well, if dressing is something you want to do, then I suppose I don’t have a say-so on the situation.” Leonard stated now looking at Rose.


Annette smiled, “That’s the spirit Leo.  I don’t imagine you will be disappointed, with the outfit she’s wearing, I may get her to hunt me something next.”



Annette led Rose to the men’s clothes, Rosalinda searched the racks, finding a jean jacket with black wings on the back, capturing it from the rack she placed it on the table, gazing once more she saw a black fishnet shirt looking at the jacket, she picked out she placed it back on the hanger.  Walking over to the table with pants stacked on it, on top was a sinister pair of buckled pants. Grabbing them, she discovered some black buckled arm warmers grabbing them, she looked at the outfit handing the clothes to Leonard.




Leonard looked at Annette, who seemed pleased with the clothes, the tall man walked into a fitting room, moments later coming out.

 He looked at Rosalinda, “Great,” looking at Annette, “She seems to be a good one you’ve taken in.” Leonard complimented both women.  He got his wallet from his pants pocket grabbing $300.00 and an additional $200.00. “Great job kid, I will have you dress me again for my award ceremony that you are invited to.” With that said Leonard gathered his old clothes and exited the store.


Rose handed Annette the money who refused it, saying, “That is your money to keep, can you come to work tomorrow morning?”


Rose looked at the money in her hands shaking her head ‘yes’.  Annette said, “Good, you go enjoy that money, I’m proceeding to close up here; so I’ll see you bright and early in the morning.” Annette smiled as Rosalinda left.
