Kitchen staff was up early the next morning, getting everyone’s breakfast ready before eight o’ clock. It was buzzing with activity. Erika was busy filling up the water pitchers with ice when a visitor stopped by.

“Listen-“ Joel began.

Erika huffed out a sigh. “What do you want?”

“Look, I’ve been thinking…” Joel tucked his hands into his pockets. “Why don’t we help each other out?”

“Huh?” This got Erika’s attention.

“I mean, we both like someone and we’re both trying to get their attention, right? And between you and me, I don’t think either of us are getting anywhere.”

Erika turned back to the ice box. “So? What about it?”

“Well, I’m a guy… and you’re a girl trying to get a guy… I was thinking maybe I could help you get started with Simon. And maybe, in return, you could hook me up with Georgina.”

Teh! And why would I want your help?” Erika sneered.

“Because Simon’s one of my best friends, we’ve known each other forever, I hold the knowledge of what he likes in a woman, and I can read his emotions like a book.” Joel said matter-of-factly. “Take your pick.”

Erika put down the pitched full of ice back on the trolley, thinking. “Fine. But you have to share with me absolutely everything about Simon that you know, okay?”

“Sure thing,” Joel grins, “just… do the exact same thing for me with Georgina. Deal?”

“Deal.”
