A Few Weeks Later
”Hello stranger, long time no see.”
The familiar voice came from a table behind Tina. She turned around to face the occupant almost dropping her muffin that sat on a plate with some fruit. Tina smiled in surprise at the small middle aged blonde, eyes as green as a summer field and a genuine smile that completely lit up her face, waved.
”When did you get here. I heard you were moving back to Los Angeles, but I thought that wouldn’t be till later in the year.” Tina said inquiring while sliding into the chair across from her old assistant.
Shelly quickly swept her eyes across the woman she had not seen in months. ”How have you been? You look great.”
Tina smiled, ”thanks,” Tina smoothed out her linen slacks as she placed a napkin across her lap. ”Doing well, thanks for asking.” Tina paused and took a sip of her coffee and a bite of her muffin. ”I had to go shopping to beef up my wardrobe. All I had was jeans and t-shirts that I wore on set in Vancouver.”
”The new exec look suits you.” Shelly said pointing to the blazer that matched Tina’s slacks and launder blouse that complimented it.
”So what brought you to LA early? The show hasn’t wrapped yet? Tina inquired.
”I heard through the grapevine that a new executive producer would be needing an assistant soon. Since I was already packed up, Jack said I could leave early. I was hoping I could convince the executive to bring me onto her team.” Shelly gave Tina a big toothy smile.
Tina shook her head, ”the grapevine… I would love for you to slide into the spot, but it isn’t opening up until late next month. That is why I am a little surprised that you even knew about it.” Tina tilts her head, raising a brow.
Shelly lowered her head took a bite of her breakfast sandwich appearing to mull things over, ”Tina… since you left… well… your business has been all over Toronto. That is partly why I didn’t want to stay on that production.”
Tina furrowed her brows and tilted her head, ”What do you mean?”
