Prologue

 

My name is Amy Carson. I guess you could say I didn’t have the most amazing of childhoods, but then again who does these days. My birth certificate says I was born in Alexandria , Louisiana though I wasn’t there long enough to remember it. I lost both of my parents to a drunk driver when I was a little over a year old. They had no close family to take me in so it was the foster system for me. I kind of would of thought being so young I might have been adopted but that wasn’t the case. Since my earliest memories I can remember being moved from home to home. The last stop was pretty sketchy couple who were more than likely in it for the money, so we kept our distance. I didn’t try to bother them and they returned the favor. It was honestly a good deal, it meant no attachments. Meaning I wouldn’t get hurt again. I learned not to get attached the hard way. I was put in the home of a wonderful woman named Ann, though for me it was Momma. I did all the normal kid stuff with her and got comfortable for the first time in my life, but when I heard it was time to move on she was the one prying my white knuckled fingers off the bed post and handing me over to the social worker.

At least I’ve learned maturity and self independence with my life experiences. Twenty-two years old with my own apartment, car, and in school part time. Hell I was even going to school off of a scholarship. Now on top of it all I landed an amazing job Bartending in New Orleans at this eccentric club called Night shift. Then again all of this stuff was what use to be important to me. At least before I walked out of the Damn bar and blacked out. It was like someone pulled the wool right out from under my feet. I didn’t know if I could go back to my life and in all seriousness if I could, would i?

 

Chapter one

“So, how you holding up kid?” said mikey.

I wasn’t sure how to answer my new boss. He seemed really easy going, but I figured he’d ditch me if he knew how paranoid I was about the fact he actually hired me. Everyone in this business area knew Night shift was known for its eccentric clientele along with the eccentric staff. As for me, I definitely didn’t pull off the whole dark and mysterious look very well and the only time I had purple hair was for Halloween. The only thing that blended in there was my long black hair. But I’m pretty sure all the pastels and bright colors I wore canceled that point out. Mikey was around his mid thirties and maybe a little to roguish looking to be considered “hot” but he was a handsome man with laugh lines that showed he enjoyed his life. I looked up at his six foot frame to smile at him.

“good yeah, I love it. It’s not to rowdy around here like some of the other bars and it’s always a plus when you get a job with good pay AND flexible hours.”

He had a sly grin “yea the hours are awesome here for the local night owls.”

As he said this another bartender  with highlighted pink hair walked by grinning at him. I think her name is Jenny and they must have an inside joke about working this shift that I wasn’t in on.

“well I guess I can’t ever complain about those nights of insomnia now that I’m here to stay hopefully ”

He stared at me for a second before he nodded and walked off to get some more liquor bottles, but not before I heard him say “ we’ll see”

 

The night went fast full of loud music and lots of buyers at the bar. I liked when we had a full crowd. Feeding off there energy was my high. so two fights and five puking customers later it was time to close up. I stuck with my task of sweeping the floors and restocking the bar. Grabbing my bag from the back and clocking out I headed to my car. That’s when I felt it, someone was watching me. I knew my mind was playing tricks but the shiver that went down my spine was real. I started jogging to my car fumbling for the keys.thats when I felt someone coming up behind me, turning to scream my throat froze and I felt like a complete idiot.

Jenny stood there looking as shocked as me. “oh shit, im so sorry I should of yelled your name or something. You look scared as fuck.”

I couldn’t speak for a minute due to the fact I was trying to breathe deeply and control my heart from exploding out of me and hitting jenny.

Getting my bearings back in order I could finally breathe calmly enough to talk.

“is everything ok, did I forget to do something?”

She stuck her hand out with a wad of cash, I stared at it confused until it hit me.

“oh my gosh!, thank you so much. I have no clue how the hell I could forget my tips!”

She laughed “yea  it’s definetly not something I’d wanna leave behind." she said handing it over

" So how do you like the job. ”

“so far it’s great. The hours are perfect for what I was looking for but, there is one thing im a little confused on.”

She raised an eyebrow “ whats that?”

“ how in the world did I get hired, I mean I know I do have bartending experience but...”

I point at myself “ im kind of plain compared to everyone here.”

She laughed and I couldn’t help but smile too. “Mike wanted to try sort of an experiment, it’s always good to appeal  to everyone in the crowd and mix things up a bit. “

“ gotchya, that would make sense.”

“so im about to head out to the blue spot and since we’re gonna be seein a lot of each other, would you like to go and grab a drink. There’s gonna be drunken hot men there. “ she said saying that last part in a high sing song voice. The blue spot was a nice little rock place that I actually passed on my way home.

I shrugged smiling “ why not”

 

We stayed there for a little over an hour talking about anything and everything. Just having a good girls night “well hour” out. When they started to clean up and turn the music off a few other patriots along with jenny and I went out to the parking lot to head home.

“That was so fun we should definitely do it again soon “ she exclaimed pulling her pink hair into a messy bun on top of her head.

“ Agreed, sooner than later.” I said laughing.

We both said our goodbyes and headed out home.
