Episode 17: She's the One, but ...


“Cindy Charmers,” said the pretty brunette as she sat in Sync’s office.
Her curly hair framed her round face. A smattering of freckles showed through the makeup on her nose. He couldn’t help studying her. Uh-oh, a white light bubble formed around her. News Flash! She was his soul-mate. She was the one!
“I had a feeling there was a job vacancy so thought it’d be a good idea to wait to see you,” she said handing him her resume.
Sync beamed.
“Very intuitive of you,” he said. He felt like an idiot. He couldn’t stop smiling. He knew everything about her. All her private personal details. She flushed and changed positions in her chair. He had to stop staring he was making her uncomfortable.
He glanced at the pages of the resume not seeing a single word. He pretended to read trying to stabilise his excitement.
“Can you start immediately?” he asked.
“Yeah sure,” she grinned. “Don’t you want to know more about me?”
“I know enough,” he assured her. “Come with me,” he said taking her into the factory. He introduced her to Jenny Slatts the over-seer of operations. He turned and walked away. As he opened the office door he glanced back at Cindy. His broad smile fell away. Another detail came to his mind.
Cindy Charmers was engaged to be married.
