"Well, I wanted to tell you that I ran into Mr. and Mrs. Coleman today." Her mother never went anywhere she could run into people, so that told Clarke they were probably clients which didn't surprise her one bit. They had always been the type to be sue-happy. They also happened to be her ex-boyfriend's parents. And by ex-boyfriend, she meant the first guy in high school she ever made out with. His name was Bobby, and they'd gotten their braces stuck on each other freshman year. But for some reason he'd always stuck in her mother's mind. It was the only thing Clarke had ever done that her mother approved of; probably because his parents were rich and seemingly perfect.

"So?" Clarke asked impatiently.

"Well, it turns out Bobby is now Dr. Bobby Coleman; a surgeon in fact. And it seems not only is he still interested in you; he also has a job available for a medical biller. He's willing to train you and hire you. It's like a double whammy, right?"

Clarke scoffed, feeling ready to throw up at the idea of working at the office of a plastic surgeon, which is what she knew he was from Facebook. She also knew he could use a little plastic surgery himself. "Mother, I own a flower shop. I do not need a job," Clarke explained, feeling annoyed. Her mother had never had the confidence in the idea of her running her own business much less a flower shop. She didn't see any money or security in it. Nor was it a practical job like hers.
