Reborn Excerpt 3

The glass door to City Light Realty had a black and white mural on it of a city line. Well that figured anyway given the name. God she really hoped this place could help her out. She took a deep breath, said a small prayer and walked into the building. An older lady looked up from the only desk in the main area. “Hi! I’m Nancy. What can I do for you today”? She seemed friendly enough, and ready to help. “Well…I have been searching for an apartment for several months and I just can’t seem to find anything that works for me”. With a nod, Nancy motioned for her to have a seat in one of the few chairs that lined the wall. Before she walked down the narrow hall to pop her head into one of the open office doors she said, “I didn’t catch your name?” After giving her information to Nancy, Elise grabbed the nearest celebrity gossip magazine as she waited. Naturally there was a greek god in a bathing suit. His tan abs rippled against an ocean back drop. She tossed the magazine back on the table and snorted under her breath, did real men even look like that? Not likely…

Her cynicism was interrupted by a young redhead. The bubbly-ness was just radiating off her perfectly put together person. “Elise?” She smiled and beckoned for Elise to follow her. As Elise sat in the oversized chair the redhead was already clacking on her keyboard. “So my name is Angela, and I am going to be helping you today. What exactly are you looking for in an apartment, what kind of budget are you working with?” Angela was pleased that Elise was not a hard person to please. She wanted her living space to be clean, small was fine, and it had to be in her budget. She became a little more hopeful as she saw a wide smile growing on her agents face. “Elise, do you have some time free today, I think I have a few places you will be dying to see”.
