New Horizons: Mandie her college days book 3 of 11 Chapter 1
"What about you Amanda?" asked Dr. Woodard. Come on Mandie, just tell them, Amanda Shaw thought. Everyone was gathered in the parlor of The Guyers mansion for tea time. The adults asked all the 18 and 20 year olds what they were going to do for work in the not so distant future. Celia answered if she had a chance she would be a pianist for an opera singer, and if that didn't work she'd just be a stay at home mother, Sallie answered teacher for Cherokee youngsters. Dimer answered hunter, Jonathan wanted to be a detective, and Joe wanted to be a lawyer. Now it was Mandie's turn to answer. "I... uhh..." she heisted "I want to be a doctor" There I said it, She thought "You mean a nurse?" Dr. Woodard asked. "No, I mean a doctor" Mandie said. "Women aren't allowed to be doctors" Uncle John said. Mandie sighed madly "This is exactly why I didn't want to tell you" Mandie said getting up "I knew you wouldn't approve. Now if you'll exuse me, I'd like to go to my room for a nap" when she started to leave Sallie and Celia started to get up, "And that means I don't want to be disturbed" she snapped and went up stairs. Why are men such idiots? Mandie thought. Seh went into her room, locked the door and laid down. I wonder if Joe still wants to marry me, She thought. She soon feel asleep.
"Mandie wake up," Sallie said shaking her, "it's time for supper." Mandie got up and rubbed her eyes "I had no idea I slept so long." Sallie smiled a weak smile. "Sallie Flora Sweetwater what is wrong with you?" Mandie said, sounding demanding. "There's nothing wrong with me," Sallie said "I just feel really bad that we all put down you're dreams like that downstairs. Forgive me?" "Of course I forgive you," Mandie said hugging her, "And there's nothing you could ever do to cause me not to forgive you." "Good," Sallie said hugging her, "And I want you to know no matter how crazy this doctor thing is, I'm behind you 1000%." "Thank you, I hope everyone else feels the same way."
When they went downstairs for supper, everyone was the same way, except Joe. Everyone else hugged her and told they were behind her 1000%. Oh whatever, Mandie thought, Joe's always been afraid of showing his feelings infront of everyone, I'm sure I'll hear an apolaogy later.
When it was time for bed Mandie and Joe waited like always till everyone was in bed so they could say their private goodnight. But Joe didn't look like himself, he looked like he was hiding something. They were silent as they walked up to her room. When they got to the room he still didn't look normal. "Are you okay?" she asked."Yeah," Joe said. "You're lying." "No I'm not I'm fine." He kissed her goodnight, "I'll see you in the morning" he said then walked away.
