Welcome to this weeks edition of Tuesday Tales. Last week Jill and Robbie were conversing on the plane where Robbie offered Jill a job. After waiting for their luggage, they waited outside the terminal for a taxi.

Robbie and Jill shared a taxi. On the way to Jill’s hotel, Robbie asked if she would like to get a bit to eat since the food on the plane was disgusting. Without hesitation, Jill said yes, only with the agreement that he’d give her a chance to check in and freshen up.
Jill got herself settled into her room, before fixing her hair and touching up her makeup. On the way down on the elevator, she tried to think of things she could talk to him about. Was this a date? If it were, she didn’t have a clue on how to act, what to say. She pinched her leg. Why was she thinking like that? This was going to be a business meeting.
The restaurant was located on the opposite end of the front lobby. She walked down the corridor following the scent of garlic into the restaurant. Robbie sat by the bar. When she caught his gaze, he slid off the chair and met her at the door.
“I’m glad you came.”
“Why wouldn’t I? When I make commitment, I never go back on it.”
“Neither do I.” Robbie slid his hand under her elbow and led her into the restaurant. Once they were seated, Robbie ordered a bottle of champagne. “Since we are going to be working together, I thought we would celebrate, get to know each other better.”
Jill couldn’t take her eyes off the olive skinned stranger. She had to be sure he meant what he said about the job. “I’d like that. I’d like to hear more about the job.” More about you.
The waitress came over and placed a basket of bread on the table and a platter of ziti with basil sauce.
“There’s nothing like discussing business over a plate of macaroni.” Robbie grinned.
