Everything You Want and More
"Now remember to call us when you get there. Do you have everything you need? Underwear? Deodorant?"
"Mom!" She hugged me.
"You'll call won't you?"
"Yes mom, I'll call."
I never thought I'd be having this conversation with my mom so soon. Just last year I had graduated from high school, and here I was today in the airport ready to leave for my new job. I was really going to miss my mom, and of course my dad. Goodbyes were one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. I knew this was for the best. Hopefully at this new job, I would be one step closer to finally fulfilling my dream.
"Flight 114 ready to board."
"That's me." I said as I gave them each one last hug. This would be good for me, maybe now I could learn to do things on my own.
"Good luck, Tenten!" My dad said, as he waved and tried to console my weeping mother in his arms. Yeah… I was going to miss them.
As soon as I got on the plane, I quickly found my seat, threw my luggage above and sat down. So far the person who was supposed to sit next to me hadn't shown up. I thought I was going to get the whole row to myself, fat chance.
A few minutes before the plane took off, I saw a large man come down the aisle. By look of his face, he was looking for his seat. All I could think was, "not me, not me, not me." But sure enough, he sat down right next to me, lovely. What a great way to start this new adventure.
He was nice though, we made small talk before he fell asleep. He was on his way back home from a business trip. I couldn't help but think maybe in a few years I would be going on business trips. Sure, he was nice, but his snoring sure wasn't. This was going to be a long flight.
I wasn't able to get any sleep, but I could think about my new life. For as long I as I could remember, I've always wanted to be a radio personality. I loved being silly and fun, and when I was little my mom suggested acting. We learned that would never work on my very first play. I had scored the lead, and rehearsals had gone great, but when those curtains came up, I froze. That's why I could be great at radio, no one had to see my face and I didn't have to see theirs, I could just be myself.
Right out of high school I had landed a job as an assistant for my idol, Tsunade. Currently she ran the most listened to radio show in the country. That woman was never afraid to speak her mind, she just went for it. That was something I wished I could always do. Sure the job was nothing too exciting, but if anyone wanted a career in talk radio, she was definitely your best bet.
I had been so excited when I got the call, scared my mom half to death with my screams, but when she heard the news, she was right there with me. We quickly set up a place for me to live and then made flights plans that very day. Sure they were three months in advance, but my mom didn't care. She smiled when I was around, but I knew she wasn't thrilled her, "little Tennie," was leaving the nest so soon.
When the plane landed, I felt as if I was all alone. No one was there to greet me, but this is what I had been waiting for, a chance to be on my own. Not only was I alone but I felt extremely out of place. Coming from a small town, this big city was so different. Everyone seemed like they were in a hurry, no time for anything. I pulled my bag tighter as I saw how nicely everyone was dressed, apparently jeans and t-shirt weren't too popular here. Maybe I would finally have somewhere to spend all my birthday money that I had saved up over the years.
I grabbed my bag and headed outside. I almost fainted from the view. I had never seen to many big buildings before in my life. It was all so overwhelming. The people around me were hailing cabs left and right. I watched a few before I tried it on my own, it was a lot harder than I thought. In the movies cabs just pull right up to the curb. The only one I could seem to flag down stopped in the middle of the road. I quickly ran over, carefully trying to avoid the other cars. I threw myself in and he stepped on the gas.
"Where to miss?" The cab driver was a short man. I couldn't see over the seat, but I bet he was sitting on a phonebook.
"Oh, um." I quickly fished out the paper with my new address on it. "Umm Brooks and 53." I managed to get out. This guy was good, I watched as he weaved in and out of traffic with ease. We finally ended up at my destination, a small apartment complex, but the pictures on the internet looked good.
I grabbed my bags and gave the cabbie the fare. He tipped his hat and sped off once again.
I took a deep breath before going into the main office. The lady at the front desk looked like she was bored to death. She was filing her nails as she spoke on the phone, obviously a personal call. I stepped up to the front desk, she didn't stop, she only smiled and brought up her index finger to show me I had to wait a minute.
It was a wonder she hadn't been fired yet.
She finally got off her call and then sat up straight.
"What can I do for you hun?" She typed away on the keyboard in front of her.
"I'm new here, Tenten Mitarashi." Wow, I felt like I was in high school all over again.
She smashed away on the keyboard. "Alright, here you go hun." She handed me my room keys and pointed me in the right direction.
As I opened the door, my stomach fluttered. It wasn't exactly like the pictures but it was perfect, just for me. I could definitely work with this. The walls were a pale peach color except for the kitchen which was stark white. It was just a one bedroom apartment, but it was fairly spacious. There was a table, a dresser, a bathroom, and a bed. I threw my things on the bed and jumped on it face first.
This was going to be great.
I was already halfway settled in, now was a good a time as ever to call home. I grabbed my phone out of my bag and dialed the number I knew by heart.
I was late by the time I reached my new job. I was so embarrassed. I knew I should have woken up earlier, but I was so tired from traveling all day. I came bursting in the building out of breath and cheeks red from the cold.
Waiting for me was a tall slim blond. She looked scary in her high stiletto heels and dark makeup. I really didn't know what to make of her and her nice dress suit. If this what I was supposed to be wearing, I was extremely underdressed.
"Tenten Mitarashi, I presume?" I nodded.
She stuck out her hand. "Temari, Temari Suna." I shook her hand she immediately began to walk away. I quickly followed her. "Come on I've got someone else you need to meet."
After walking through almost every floor of that building we stopped near the top. The office was really nice, clean and very white. Like no one was supposed to tough it.
"This is your new office." Temari said with a smile. As I took in the breathtaking office another girl stood by Temari's side. She seemed a lot more friendly than Temari with her bubblegum pink hair.
"I'm Sakura Haruno." I shook her hand and gave her my name as well. "We're so glad to have another hand to help out around here. Welcome to the Tsunade's assistant club." She laughed. Temari rolled her eyes but smiled.
"Wait there three of us… She really needs three assistants?" This wasn't exactly what I was expecting.
"She needs about ten assistants, but chooses to be understaffed. She knows that whoever she hires will get the job done, no questions asked." Temari said with a smile.
Sakura slapped her arm. "Temari you're scaring her." She looked to me. "Really it's not that bad. It's a lot of fun once you get used to it."
"Speaking of fun, here's your first assignment. Tsunade likes her latte caramel flavored, with skim milk, three shots of espresso and a quarter inch of foam at that top. Got it?" I ran the order in my head again and nodded once I repeated it successfully. "Good, be prepared I might call you with another job on the way."
Basically I have nothing planned out for this story. :P
I think it could turn out really good though.
