I was working at my aunts store in Miami when I saw her. When I saw her I thought I saw a goddess descending. She came over to my aunts store and walked in. 'Oh dear..' was what I thought when she came in. "Excuse me sir but may I see your catalouge?" she said. I stopped breathing but remembering that I needed to answer I said, "Oh would you like this years or last years miss?"(Oh and the store is a chain clothing store). "Perhaps you could bring me all of them." she said. "Of course miss." I replied. She then flipped through all of the catalouge and then asked me where she could fine this article. I told her and then she thanked me. After 1.5 hour more customers came in and I was juggling helping her and dealing with the on rush of customers. Then she told me she would like the huge bundle she was carrying. It was super heavy and I was wondering how could such a skinny thing carry this.
After I helped her pack everything into the back seat of her car she said, "Thank you so much for your help and so may I get your name in case next time I'll like request you?" "I am sorry miss but I am only a part-time here." I told her. "Shame. But you since you are such a good help to me would you like me to introduce you to another job if you are fired here?" "I most likely won't since I only work out in the summer time but perhaps I will." "Alright if you need a job call this number on this card here." she said handing me a business card. "Oh and my name is Katherine Linden and you are.." "My name is Christopher." I told her. She then bid me good-bye and rode away. And so for the rest of the summer she didn't come again. So the summer ended.

"Ring! Ring! Ring!" Class was over after a long session discussing the theory of the big bang for two hours straight. I am studying astronomy as a side and my main is business. It was 12:15 pm and I was famished so I rushed over to the cafeteria. There was a huge line there and so I waited fifteen minutes to get my lunch. Unfortunetaly it was out with only white bread and jam. Seriously can't they get the idea that if there is over 2000 students here they would increase the portions. I was pissed off. One because of my stomach and another because of food. Luckily there were stalls outside the school that provides food all day. So I went over to the stall that sells sandwiches and there I met my friend Nathan. "Cwristophrr!" he try to say with a stuffed mouth. I saw his portion of ten sandwiches. "Hungry as ever I see." He laughed and then said, "Christopher you look very uptight where is the fun one now?" he asked smiling. "Graduated as with highschool." I said. He just looked at me and then continue eating. I then ordered as well and after I finished I went back home.
Home is not actually my real home but rather an apartment. When I got back I found a note taped on the door it said this:
To Mr. Christopher Hall you have been notified if you don't pay this months rent you will be evicted from this building complex along with your belongings if you don't pay by the due date of December 21st.
Wait December 21st! I then called my parents to make a transfer of money into my banking account. Suprisingly they refused saying that they were already paying for my college tuition so why should we pay your rent as well, and what use could you be even if you finished college. At that time I knew I have been abandon. I went inside to think who would hire me when it's so close to christmas that most of the places can't tolerate people who doesn't know anything and dealing with the christmas rush. I then thought of the business card that a year ago was given to me. I looked for it and finally found it. I typed in the number. I heard the dial tone and then it was picked up. "Hello this is Katherine Linden who is this speaking?" "Uhh this is Christopher. You know from last year." "Christopher how are you doing?" she said kindly. "Fine, but I need a job. Like right now." "Oh is this really important Christopher." "Yeah." I told her. "Then if you will come to my office tomorrow afternoon at 1pm at the address on the card and say that you are requesting Kathrine Linden. Alright." I told her I got it. The next day after class I went to the address on the card and it led me to Royal Trading Center co. one of the worlds largest trading center's main office.
