Just Keeps Getting Better -2

Updated on July 16, 2017

Here She Is

Eva Robaznik finally came through
Customs and found herself on
the hot pavement.

She hadn't known what to pack
so took almost everything she
owned, save winter coats and
boots.

She had one huge suitcase on
wheels she pulled, another she
wore on her back.

It was quite hot, she had never felt such heat. Further, the trip had been quiet long and uncomfortable, and though she'd travelled many times before, she always had the momentary discomfort to be in a country where she knew no one.

She scanned the crowd for the driver, She was told that he would be at the airport to collect her.

Ah! There he was.
Big.
Very big.
Buff, very buff.

Eva had expected a wizened older man or a non-descript, not someone
so striking.

She stood a few seconds just staring at the driver, then realising how pathetic she must appear, moved quickly (as quickly as she could considering her burdens) towards him.

In a loud clear voice; "I am Eva Robaznik," and put out her hand.

He shook it, without a smile or word, took her luggage, and led to the car.
He put down the bags, opened the back door, and she got in.

Shutting her door he turned to her luggage, and piled that into the boot, then moved to take the driver's seat.

As he drove out of the airport he stated; "I was told to take you to the office first..."

Friendly

As she balanced herself in the backseat, enjoying the air conditioned interior of the car, she asked the driver;

"What is your name?"

Eva spoke in a commanding way, not soft, not flexible.

"Nunes." The driver 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 occasionally used with previous drivers. If he wanted to keep the barriers, she would comply.

Turning on her Cell phone, Eva rang the Office. She 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 her accommodations. 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" .

He developed 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.

Friday night and he's going to spend it running errands for the Pillsbury dough girl.

It just keeps getting better.
