"Oil and Water" Johnny and Brenda

Brenda had been in Port Charles for only couple of weeks. She was a little apprehensive in returning to the town, she once called home, but she decided to leave the past in the past. She had every intention of starting her own cosmetics company, and Port Charles was the perfect place to do that. Up until now, she had managed to avoid Sonny and Jax, but she knew she was bound to run into them. She was more worried about running into Jax than Sonny. The last time she'd seen Jax, he was offering her a million dollars to leave town. She looked out her hotel window, and she still couldn't believe the way he treated her. He treated her like some common prostitute. She hadn't seen him since. She wasn't worried about any old feelings, she hated the man. Her and Sonny were a different story. They hadn't dated in almost fifteen years, and she was fine with that. He would always be her first love, but that was over and done with. Brenda moved away from the window, grabbed her leather jacket, and walked out of the door ….

Brenda was due to meet Robin at General Hospital. They were supposed to have lunch. Brenda went to the second floor, but was told Robin was on the seventh. Brenda pressed the button on the elevator and waited. The red light came on, and the doors opened. There were quite a few people on elevator trying to get off, so she let them pass first. There was one man left, who had his arm in a sling. Brenda got on the elevator and pressed seven. She felt the man looking at her. Brenda pressed the button again. Johnny couldn't believe his luck, he was on the elevator with the hottest girl he had ever laid eyes on. She was petite, and had long beautiful brown hair. Johnny looked her over. "You must be sweating up under that jacket, Baby, because you are hot."

Brenda pressed the button again.

Johnny chuckled. "Are you ignoring me?"

"Yes, I am"

"You shouldn't, I won't bite."

Brenda sighed. She decided it would be better, if she just ignored him. She was use to men hitting on her.

All of a sudden the elevator stopped. Brenda rolled her eyes. "oh, no. Don't tell me this thing isn't working!"

"Calm down baby. You'll get out."

"Excuse me, I am not your baby!"

"I was just trying to help."

"Thanks, but no thanks."

"Oh, you are one of those. I know your type, you think the sun rises and sets on you."

She frowned. "Did I ask you?"

Brenda closed her eyes, and took a deep breath, and thought out loud. "Please God, let this elevator start. This guy is driving me insane!"

Johnny just looked at her and started laughing. "I can hear you."

"Good, maybe you will leave me alone."

Brenda picked up the emergency phone. "Hello, My name is Brenda Barrett, and I'm stuck on the elevator. I don't know, between the third and fourth floors. Just me and another person. Thanks."

She placed the phone back down.

Johnny looked at her. "So what did they say?"

Brenda looked at him. "There working on it."

"Were you not going to tell me? I would like to get out too."

"I was actually trying to avoid talking to you."

"Whoa, what's up with the attitude?"

"Ahh….maybe it had something to do with that lame pick up line."

"Don't flatter yourself, it was not a pick up line, just an observation. One that I wish I could take back."

Brenda turned and looked at him. "Look, how about you don't talk to me, and I won't talk to you."

"Fine with me."

For the next ten minutes they stand in silent. All of a sudden the elevator started moving.

Brenda let out a sigh of relief. "Thank God." It stopped at the seventh floor and Brenda exits.

Johnny shouts. "Nice meeting you!" The elevator closes. "Hope I never run into her again."
