Busy Monday Morning (Photostory)
Maya, Nikki's new assistant, is busy checking emails, making appointments, and answering the phone. Mondays are always very busy at the hotel. It's only 10:15am, and Nikki is already in her second meeting.
She's meeting with Lydia, one of the local interior designers, to discuss some hotel renovations. You may recall that these two first met when Lydia was working on Darius' bachelor pad. That was not a great meeting, but since then, the two have worked on a couple of projects together.
"So we are all set for two weeks from today to start Phase I. And the time frame to finish is 5 weeks. Right?" (Nikki)
"Yes. I have already scheduled the demolition crew to be here at 8am that morning. Provided there aren't any major surprises, we will have the rooms completely done as planned." (Lydia)
Out in the reception area, Nikki's next appointment has arrived.
"Would you ladies like some coffee and donuts? (Maya)
"No thank you. We just had breakfast." (Tina)
As Lydia is leaving Nikki's office, she hears a familiar voice.
"Lydia, is that you?" (Tina)
"Tina? How are you?" (Lydia)
While the ladies play catch up, Maya slips into Nikki's office to deliver a message.
"Darius called while you were in your meeting. He was wondering if you were available for lunch?" (Maya)
Nikki takes a quick peek at her calendar to see what's planned for the afternoon. When Darius returned on Saturday, they had a nice long talk and decided to stop all the bickering and start enjoying the relationship again. Her schedule is pretty tight, but she knows the lunch date is important for the relationship.
"Okay, call him and tell him I'll be available at 11:30. Thanks, Maya. You can send Tina in." (Nikki)
"11:30 it is." (Maya)
Maya tells the ladies to go in, then she tries to reach Darius.
"Tina, how are you?" (Nikki)
"I'm great." (Tina)
"Well come on in. I have lots to share with you." (Nikki)
TO BE CONTINUED.....
So why is Tina meeting with Nikki? Because she's having her wedding reception at the hotel. Nikki's assistant, Maya, was named after Maya from the show Girlfriends. I know at least a few of you remember that show.
