Milagros ‘Millie’ Delgado
HE KEPT LOOKING at me like he was waiting for me to do something,
and I had a feeling that I had totally bombed this interview for a receptionist
position at the Broken Eagles Bike Shop.
I’d grown up in the mechanic shop my grandpa owned before the
property lease became too high and he had to close so some hipster avocado
toast shop could open up.
“Thank you for coming in, Millie.” The owner of the shop, Wes Silver,
extended his hand as we both stood up. “I think—”
“Wes,” he corrected, and I breathed in deeply.
“Wes, before you send me packing and go with a different candidate, can
I just…” I hesitated and frowned. I needed this job. With that reminder, I
looked at the man and, as gently as I could, I spoke, “I appreciate the
opportunity to interview. I promise you I can handle myself here. I grew up
in my grandpa’s shop, around mechanics.”
“You’re a graphic designer,” he pointed out, and I knew what he was
thinking. I was overqualified to work as a receptionist, and I got where he
was coming from, but I needed this job. The more I thought about working
there, the more I wanted it because it sounded cool. Not only that, four

spot that sounded too good to be true as a Paint Nite host.
“I was.” He crossed his arms over his chest and stared at me. “I was a

“I can do it. I was a graphic designer because it paid the bills and I was
able to help my mom supplement her medical insurance.”
“Now…” I hesitated, but honestly, what did I have to lose? My mom had
sent me off on an adventure, and biting my tongue wasn’t going to get shit
done. “Permission to speak freely?” His lips twitched.
“This isn’t the Army, Millie. I know. I’ve been in it.”
“Thank you for your service.” He nodded, urging me to keep going. “I
was what I needed to be to make sure my mom was taken care of. But she’s
gone now.” His eyes softened, and I looked past his shoulder, blinking away
the heavy emotions her loss brought anytime I remembered. “I came here
for a change. I promised her… my mom was a nut, Wes. She made me
promise crazy things. So, I left Los Angeles, never having gone further than
Vegas, on a whim and found my way to Nashville.” I took a breath and kept
