Challenge #187 - The Second Sister - Journye
The Second Sister – Journye
Your phone beeps, startling you out of the creative trance you were in. It beeps again from somewhere within the clutter scattered over your drafting table. Frantically, you toss things around until you locate the offensive object. A notice flashes on the screen: Phone conference with Journye. You let out the annoyed sigh that only an interrupted artist can understand, before dialing the number.
A highly annoyed female voice greets you by name against the backdrop of a series of bangs and slams.
“Journye?” You ask, hesitantly.
“Yeah. Hows it going?” She says amiably, before grunting. There’s the sound of something breaking.
“I’m fine…Is this a bad time?”
“No. Its fine. We’re just setting up for a concert tonight. Sorry about the noise.”
“It sounds like you’re in a warzone.”
“Really? You’re doing this now?” comes the acerbic british voice of one of the other sisters, Sarah.
Journye says “If I don’t, Rosie will kill me.” Theres a sharp cry in the back ground, then a series of loud cracks. “plum. Can I call you back in 5?”
Its closer to 15 before she calls you back again, sounding a little breathless. “Sorry. Ah, one of the stagehands hurt himself.” The noise has dropped considerably.
“Its not a problem. So what can I do for you Journye?”
“Well, I need a place. My wife and her business partner are coming into town. Lily’s gonna take over my old room at Gunk’s for a while. But Rosie and I need a place to live. It would be nice if I could have it close to Gunk’s, next door or across the street. Something that’s a short run or walk since we rehearse at her place. Need at least 2 rooms. Pretty. Rosie’s more girly than I am. Former cheerleader, fashion designer, nutritionist, likes pink… So, I need a place to hang out away from the girly stuff and she needs a place to work on her fashion stuff. I’m not exactly a homemaker, or whatever the word is, like her. Decent kitchen. Really nice master suite.” Journye sounds like shes at a bit of a loss. “Um, good security system, fenced back yard…”
Sympathetically, you say “She didn’t give you much direction did she?”
“No. I’d have dumped it on her if she wasn’t busy getting ready to move her and Lily’s store out here.” The tortured sound in Journye’s voice moves you to suggest something you normally wouldn’t.
“Would you like me to decide on the details for you? Then we can change things out if she doesn’t like it.”
“If I wasn’t already married, I’d marry you.” she says with relief clear in her voice. In the background someone calls out something. “Ive got to go. Thanks!”
“Wait! Whats my budget?”
“Oh. Um, 45?” Then the line goes dead.
