Destiny arrives home from work and is blown away by the new kitchen.
She cannot wait to invite a few celebrities over, but tonight she just
wants to relax. She calls for pizza delivery.
“Drake have you met any friends here in Bridgeport yet?”
“Yes, I’ve met a few people,” he lies.
He realizes that he doesn’t have anyone to hang out with here in town. The
people who work with him at the bookstore are too geeky. He really needs a

the apartments across the hall.
Emilio Morales answers the door. “Hey, you work at the bookstore don’t you?
I’ve seen you there a few times.” Emilio says after Drake introduces himself.
“Yeah, I’m there part-time.”
“Can you hook me up with your employee discount? There’s a few
books I could use.”
“No… I don’t really get any discounts.”
“Well can you do me just one favor? I’d be grateful if you can check to see if

“Tell me the name of the book and I’ll check our inventory tomorrow.”
Destiny heads down the elevator to pay the pizza delivery guy.
“Thanks,” Destiny says taking the pizza. She is starving and more
than ready to eat and relax at home.
Drake and Emilio are still chatting, “So do you enjoy anything else

Destiny has her pizza and can’t wait to chow down.
She opens the box and breathes in the hot cheesy aroma.
Destiny grabs the biggest greasiest slice; this is true culinary bliss.
“Are you a fan of the Bridgeport Lamas?” Emilio asks.
“Well, I’m pretty new to town so I haven’t really paid much attention to the
sports teams here.”
“Well maybe we can catch a game or two.” Emilio suggests.
“Excuse me…” Drake says to Emilio before answering his ringing cell
Drake is excited to accept an opportunity to increase his mixology skill

“The kitchen looks nice but the apartment walls look plain. I just don’t
understand why you don’t like art, Destiny?”
“The same reason why I hate books. Art and books are usually created by
overly sensitive, geeky jerks. They create high priced junk, and then get mad
when you don’t get the supposed ‘meaning’ behind it.” Drake is amused by

“Oh we’re absolutely perfect!”
“I don’t know about that,” Drake slides over on the couch to get a better look,
“but you in that skirt is what I call perfect,” Drake says staring at Destiny while
Destiny smiles. This is exactly why she has stayed in this relationship
with Drake for so long – she thinks that Drake absolutely worships her.
The truth is… Drake thinks that Destiny is extraordinarily good looking,
but her arrogance and faulty reasoning is very annoying at times.
