Dot Com Success, Career Restart
By Daring Diane
After lunch, Miss Jefferson told Jennifer to go to the principal’s office. Jennifer started to gather her things. Miss Jefferson told her to leave her things and head to the office. Jennifer tried to explain that she would not be coming back. Miss Jefferson cut her off and sent her on her way with a hall pass.
In the office, Mrs. Barham explained that she was going to take Jennifer over to the administration offices in a minute. Jennifer had to sit on a wooden bench while waiting for Mrs. Barham to finish up.
Finally, Mrs. Barham got up and led Jennifer over to the administration building. She left Jennifer there on another bench and headed back to the grade school.
After sitting on another uncomfortable bench for a while, Jennifer was called into an office by Sara Adams.
Sara Adams and Mary Martin sipped their coffee and watched Amanda Barham walking the little girl across from the grade school to the administration offices.
Sara looked at Mary and smiled. “She looks like any other grade school student. In fact, if I didn’t know better, I would have thought she was in a lower grade than seventh. She just doesn’t have the look.”
Mary looked at her with pleading eyes and sarcastically asked, “Won’t you please educate my wayward daughter in-law in your wonderful catholic school? I don’t care if we have to start all over again.” Mary was snickering a little at the end.
