Just Keeps Getting Better -2
Here She Is
Eva Robaznik came through
She hadn't known what to pack
so took everything.
She had one huge suitcase on
wheels, and had to put the
other one on her back.
It was quite hot, the trip was long and now she was where she knew
no one. She scanned the crowd for the driver, and there he was.
Big. Very big. Buff, very buff.
Eva had expected a wizened older man or a non-descript, not someone
She stood for a few seconds just staring, then realising how pathetic
she must appear, moved quickly (as quickly as she could considering
her burdens) and said, in a clear voice;
"I am Eva Robaznik," and put out her hand.
He shook it, took her luggage, led her to the car.
He put down the bags, opened the back door, she got in, he went to
the boot, stowed the bags, moved to the driver's seat.
As he drove out of the airport;
"I was told to take you to the office first..." he said.
"What is your name?" she asked in voice with demand. Not an unusual tone.
"Nunes." He muttered.
"Is that First name or last?"
"Last." He chipped as he maneuvered through traffic.
Since he was being unfriendly there was no sense in trying the egalitarian approach
she used with previous drivers.
Eva rang the Office, spoke to the person in charge of her arrangements.
As there was no reason for her to physically go to the office, she was informed of where she could be staying.
Verifying the name and address of the Hotel, she requested the driver be called and directed.
Eva was not one to allow herself to be 'managed' by an inferior. If Nunes was going to be difficult, she could be distant.
Doing his job
As the conversation between Eva and the office was not being conducted in English, Jeremy didn't know precisely what was being said but caught the words "Spanish Court" so had the impression that he was to take her to that hotel.
When his cell rang and he received that information he agreed as expected.
And as expected he would be told; "Please stay with Miss Robaznik and whatever she wants or needs please ensure that she receives it, she is Very Important to the Company."
Yup. Friday night, and he's going to spend it running errands for the Pillsbury dough boy.
It just keeps getting better.
