As Destiny Must Have It
Chapter 1 It was an awfully warm day which sort of surprises me since it’s already mid-October but then again I’m not complaining since I’m not a huge fan of the cold especially when I work eight hour shifts at the local diner that has no air conditioning nor a working heater, a girl’s got to count her blessings right?  “Lili!” I hear all of a sudden, causing me to shake my head and snap myself back to reality, quickly looking over to my side where my boss, Charles was standing already looking at me with a frown placed on his face, an expression that’s placed on his face an awful lot.
