The Multitasker

Brenda Culpepper had been looking forward to coming home to Charleston after staying in Atlanta with her best friend, Madeline Smith. But when she came home with Madeline, Brenda saw something she had never expected. Her spacious, split-level house had been broken in half because a large tree had fallen on her house, breaking the house in half. Luckily, her house was insured. While Brenda was out of town, a huge, strong thunderstorm had come through Charleston. It wasn’t as dangerous as a hurricane.

Brenda and Madeline inspected the damage. Most of the living room, her home office, and her bedroom were damaged by the large tree. Brenda then called her insurance agent about the damage. Madeline took out her digital camera and took pictures of the entire house. Brenda felt a little upset about her damaged house, but was really glad she was out of town when it happened.

A couple of minutes later, Joseph Livingston, Brenda’s insurance agent, came over to inspect the house damage. The weath…

Preview: The Photo Shoot-Taylor Lautner visual

It was for this cosmetics/fragrance company called Rowdy Rouge Cosmetics, which is female-owned and operated. I did my research about this company; they made such hot fragrances such as Heatstroke, Raging Hormones, Touching Temptation, and their popular dual fragrance Leather and Lace. This new fragrance I was to model for was a cologne that aims at younger men like 18-24. The cologne’s titled Boy Toy. My agent also told about the guy I’m modeling with who’s a famous up-and-coming actor. When she told me it was Tayl…

Chef's Special

I had been looking forward to going to this fancy new steakhouse/seafood restaurant downtown with my so-called boyfriend. I was all dressed to the nines with my chocolate brown pointelle-knit peasant dress with my black hair up in a curly ponytail. I also wore my new black stilettos with black lace bows in the front. There were plenty of people sitting in the tables, nice classical music playing in the background. I could just smell the delicious food being cooked and everything. I ordered myself a glass of pinot noir while I waited on my boyfriend. I took a Chaser before drinking my wine. Suddenly, my cell phone vibrated and I went into the women's restroom to answer it.

My boyfriend and I had a verbal confrontation on why he couldn't meet me for our date tonight. He told me he had plans with his mother and then had the nerve to tell me things she said about me. We argued over the phone and next thing you know we break up. I returned to the table, looked over at the menu, and …
