Staring out of her window at the mountains some thousands of feet below, Bette Porter smiled as the plane she was currently aboard started its decent into Los Angeles. As the captain made his announcement over the speaker, Bette turned her head away from the window and rested it against the seat feeling excited as she was about to begin the next phase of her life and what she had been preparing her entire career for.
As the plane landed safely on the tarmac and begin its short taxi to the gate at the terminal, Bette grabbed her purse and pulled out her cellphone hitting #1 on her speed dial.
”Hey it’s Bette. I just landed”
”Damn Bette. I thought your ass was never going to get here. I have been waiting on you forever”
”I know Al. I’m sorry..I got delayed in Denver because of the storm.”
”Yeah I know. I was worried that your flight was going to be grounded and if you couldn’t make it here for tomorrow the project was going to be pulled out from under you and given to someone else”
”Alice? That’s why I sent the plans to you and asked you to work with me on this. If I couldn’t have made it, I would trust that you could cover until I was able to get there. You would have no problem going over the plans.”
”Bette you really need your head examined. I mean thinking you could send me into a room full of executives and expect to present them with the plans to build the most state of the art medical center in the world. You do know I barely passed Speech 101”
”Yes I know and I’m shocked quite frankly since you can’t stop running your mouth. So I don’t know why you would have a problem running it in front of a room full of people”
”Porter just get to Baggage Claim #4 so we can get out of here. I’ve got your room all ready and it will be just like old times. We are roomies again!”
Bette chuckled and rolled her eyes
”Well just until I can find a house. There is no way I’m going to stay and listen to your screaming through the walls with whoever you are entertaining in your bed that night”
