“Oh, girl it’s about time you took a trip,”
Jenny said. She was busy neatly folding a sundress for Alexandra.
“This is not a vacation, you know.”
Alexandra picked a couple more books from the shelf and placed them in a small
“Are you sure this is on the up and up? That Michael guy could work for some Sultan.”
Jenny slammed the suitcase shut. “Yeah, and he is luring you to this island.
Oooo, I bet this is where they force you to train, you know sexually.”
“Please, a sex island, geez.” Alex rolled her
eyes. “I’m going to tutor some rich dude about astronomy nothing more. Don’t
you think I checked this out first? This Kjonn Fengsel really does exist. There
is a man named Drake Devaux, who owns it. Boy, did I have to dig to find out
what his last name was. So see it’s all
on the up and up.” Alex put the last of her notes into the trunk then locked
“Yeah, you’re right if anybody can find a fact
about someone it’s you. Call me when you get there, okay?” Jenny hugged her
“I will, now stop worrying.” Alex
kissed her on the cheek.
“Get yourself a nice tan while you are there.
I’m sure this Mr. Devaux will give you a break every now and then.”
“I will lay out on a chaise and sip a drink
with some little umbrella in it, just for you. Jenny, take care, and don’t get
into too much trouble.” She hugged her one last time. A knock on the door
startled both of them.
“Come in.” This was Alex’s first trip away
from California. She was a bit apprehensive, but excited as well. She had just graduated from college, and
eager to apply at NASA, but this offer came up she couldn’t pass on it. It was
quite a large sum of money this Mr. Devaux was offering and Donald recommended
her. Donald was her mentor, he
encouraged her to take this offer. It would give her the necessary funds to
support herself while she applied to the Hubble project at NASA. He told her it
would be a long hard road to be accepted if she was lucky enough to be in the
“Oh my,” Jenny gasped, looking at the tall,
dark-haired, Greek god.
“Jenny, this is Michael. I will be ready in a
moment.” Alex gestured for Michael to sit down.
He walked over to Jenny, placed her
hand into his, and pulled it up toward his lips. “A pleasure.” He smiled then
gently kissed the back of her hand.
“Likewise.” She blushed.
Michael motioned to the two men to
gather up Alex’s suitcases. “I will wait for you in the car, Ms. Wilson.”
“Okay, but please call me Alex.”
“As you wish, Alex.” Michael left the room.
“That man gives a new meaning to the word
suave.” Jenny watched him out the window. “If he is going to be there, can I
“I wish I could take you. It would be nice to
have a familiar face with me.”
“Girl, you better get you some of that. He is
freaking fine umm, umm.”
“I better not keep him waiting.” Alex pulled
back her long, golden hair. She chose a
simple light blue summer dress for the trip.
“How are you getting to the island?” Jenny
handed Alex a tube of lipstick.
“Well, were flying to Hawaii then taking a
private yacht the remainder of the way. Michael said I should be there
tonight. What is the lipstick for?”
“To make you look fetching for that
“Will you stop it? Is sex the only
thing you can thing of? Alex handed her
the lipstick back.
“Well, yeah.” Jenny laughed. “You need to
“Later, girl.” Alex hugged her small friend
one last time before heading out the door.
“Later girl.” Jenny waved at her. She smiled
at Michael and watched them drive off. “You better get some of that fine piece
of man, girl.” Jenny’s body agreed with her.
