Where He Brought Me From
Chapter 4: Family Reunion
4.2 Family Reunion: Gentleman
Jessica felt that she could definitely get use to this level of pampering. As she stared at herself in the salon mirror her eyes began to swell with tears. “I look so beautiful.” She whispered through her fingers that rested over her mouth. Jessica ran her fingers through her bone straight hair as a single tear ran down her cheek. “Oh, I don’t want to mess up my make-up.” She said as the hairdresser handed her a tissue.
“Okay miss Kealoha here are your shoes and dress for tonight.” A female sales rep said. “We going to pack up all the rest of your things and have them delivered to your home.” She added.
“Thank You.” Jessica answered.
“Let me show you to the dressing room.” The sales rep said.
Jessica followed the sales rep to the dressing room to change into a dress that cost more than her rent. “Would you like me to pick out some matching accessories for you as well?” the sales rep asked.
“Um yeah.” Jessica replied.
“Okay, I’ll be right back.” She said as she hung Jessica’s dress in the dressing room. Jessica just stood in the dressing room staring in the mirror and taking it all in. She silently screamed and jumped up and down in excitement.
“Okay Jessica this is it, what you have been waiting for.” She said to herself.
She took two deep breaths and put on the beautiful gold knee length dress. She felt like Cinderella as she slipped on the gold shoes with diamond accents. She felt like she was dreaming and was going to wake up at any moment.
“Miss Keahola.” The sales rep called as she knocked on the dressing room door.
Jessica slowly opened the door to see the sales rep and another women holding a case of beautiful jewelry for her to try on.
By the time Jessica had gotten all dolled up it was almost eight o’clock. She was just about to call Kash when her phone rang. “Hello, I was just about to call you.” She said. “I invited my sister and her fiancée tonight, where are we going?” she asked.
“The Wild Boar.” Kash answered. “I’m on way to pick you up are you almost ready?” he asked.
“Yes.” Jessica answered.
“Okay see you in a minute.” Kash said and hung up. Jessica called her sister, to let her know where she and Kash were going for dinner.
“Roger, Jessica just called and they are going to The Wild Boar for dinner.” Jennifer said.
“Well I’m ready I’m just waiting on you like always.” He answered.
“She has a new boyfriend this one is suppose to be rich.” She said sarcastically.
“Oh really? Who is he?” Roger asked curiously.
“I don’t know, I forgot to ask.” Jennifer said.
“I just hope he is better than the guy she married, he was a loser.” Roger replied.
“Yeah me too.” Jennifer said. Jennifer wanted her sister to do well but she was secretly always in competition with her to do better. “I’m ready.” Jennifer announced as she walking into the living room.
“Finally.” Roger said.
