Louisa “Lou” Marshall
Sighing, I stare out the window of the private plane waiting for my turn
to leave. My long, red fingernails tap on the armrest of my seat.
Another job, another city, and I’m ready for a nice long bubble bath
when I get home. I check my secure bank account app to make sure the rest
of my payment is sitting there padding my savings into a nice nest egg.
Three million dollars. I can feel the corners of my mouth tugging and
bringing a smile to my face. I transfer payment over to my handler with a
quick note about the Thanksgiving holiday before putting it on airplane
mode. The flight attendant stands next to me letting me know I need to
buckle up as we’re getting ready to take off because we’re next in line. I
thank her, and she leaves me with my thoughts.
Closing my eyes, I wonder if I can truly end this because I don’t need to
work another day in my life. I have over twenty billion dollars in my
checking account. I can live anywhere and do anything. Right now,
everything seems to give me a bitter taste in my mouth. Crinkling my nose,
I wonder if Matthew is up for dinner and a movie sometime this week. He’s
been my best friend since college. Despite my full-time job, my mom told
me I needed to experience college life.
I got an art degree because I love art
and would kill for a job in the art world but with my current limitations I
didn’t specialize in anything. When he got his job teaching at some private
preschool, he told me they were short an art teacher.
Who else better to
work with than my bestie? I make a mental note to talk to him tomorrow
about dinner. The private plane rolls away from the hangar and I watch as
we take off. My fingers touch the window as if on instinct like I did when I
flew as a child. My dad always told me I was touching the clouds.
“No Louisa,” I chastise myself for thinking about him. My dad was
Louis Marshall, a business executive who liked his rules and would run his
house with an iron fist.
