Chapter Two: Meeting the wife and sing

The door opens, there a woman is walking in, she looks around and I know she's looking for Curly, "I'm looking for Curly." I said, "He's at the house with Uncle."Curly's Wifelooks at me and she glared, "Stacey, am I talking to you?" I shake my head, "Well, I'm asking them not you." I scoffed. With that, she walks away. "She's pretty." Lennie said, I look at Lennie and I knew he was talking about Curly's Wife. "Lennie," George said in a warning tone, "Lennie, she may look pretty but, she's Curly's." I spoke, George and Lennie both look at me and George ask, "She's Curly's Wife?" I nod and said, "She never really think I could do a man's work." I went and sit down on the table.

"Wait," George looks at me and he ask, "You work here? And you live here?" I nodded, "I know, I know, surprised." I said. "Where's your bed?" I point at the wall on the left, really close to the window, "That's my bed, and I trust you know your bed. Well, I'm leaving you here until dinner," I walk to the door and opens the door, "oh, and one more thing," I stop myself before I went out of the door, George is looking at me, "Dinner is at five and afterward, work time, and you're on my team." I smile at them and I walk out. I was hoping that George and Lennie accepted me as their friend and not see me as a girl.

George's POV

When Stacey (I just learned her name when Curly called her name) left, I was looking at her, she looks so pretty even. "Stacey's pretty too." Lennie said, looking at where Stacey left, "Don't you think she's pretty, George?" Lennie ask curiously, I look at him, "Yes. But that will get you distracted. We're here for the money not for the girls. All right?"I said to Lennie, Lennie nodded. I sigh and set up the blanket while Lennie said, "I don't like this place." Oh, Lennie. We just getting started.

My POV

I was walking to grab the food, I'm having dinner with the guys. I know I was supposed to eat with my family, but I'd rather not with Curly's Wife. She thinks everyone loves her and thinks she is so gorgeous than me, truth is...everyone thinks she is beautiful than me, I've even had a boyfriend but he dumped me. And I never gotten a boyfriend for a long time. I grabbed the food, and I was walking to find Slim and there he was sitting next to George. I smile at the thought of it. I knew Slim is talking to George about anything, Slim is a real friendly guy, that he is.
"Hey, boys." I said stopping in the middle of George and Slim's conversation. They both look up to me and I smile at them, "Do you mind I join in?" I ask them, hoping that I could join in. Slim nods, he slid his seat to leave me a seat and he bring his tray with him. I'm guessing he wants me to sit next to George. I shrug my shoulders and put the tray down, I slid my legs over the bench and I sit down. My leg touched his leg, but I ignore it anyway. "Stacey, have you met our newcomers?" Slim asked, I nodded, "Yes, I did, I was the one who was showing them the bunkhouse." Slim said, "Ah, did you explain that you live with the rest of the guys and that you're the only girl in the ranch?" I nodded. Slim smile and look over to George, George is looking at me and I was eating, George looked back at Slim, "She's the keeper here, she gets all of the guys going." I splutter out my drink and cough. George is looking at me, concerned, he pats my back gently, "Are you okay?" George ask, I look at him and I said, "Yes. It just Slim, he says I get all of the guys going, which is not true." Slim chuckled, "She may not believe that, but I can see." I look over to Slim and give him a playful glare.

"Stacey!" I look over to Whitt and he said, "Sing for us!" everyone agrees but not George and Lennie, of course, they didn't know I could sing. I look to George and Lennie and I said, "I could sing." George and Lennie nodded.
I stand on the table and started to sing.

Any moment everything can change
Feel the wind on your shoulder
For a minute all the world can wait
Let go of your yesterday
Can you hear it calling?
Can you feel it in your soul?
Can you trust it's longing
And take control?
Fly, open up the part of you that wants to hide away
And you can shine, forget about the reasons
Why you can't in life and start to try
'Cause it's your time, time to fly
All your worries, leave them somewhere else
Find a dream you can follow
Reach for something when there's nothing left
And the world's feeling hollow
Can you hear it calling?
Can you feel it in your soul?
Can you trust it's longing
And take control?
Fly, open up the part of you that wants to hide away
And you can shine, forget about the reasons
Why you can't in life and start to try
'Cause it's your time, time to fly
And when you're down and feel alone
Just want to run away
Trust yourself and don't give up
You know you're better than anyone else
Any moment everything can change
Feel the wind on your shoulder
For a minute all the world can wait
Let go of yesterday
Fly, open up the part of you that wants to hide away
And you can shine, forget about the reasons
Why you can't in life and start to try
Fly, forget about the reasons
Why you can't in life and start to try
'Cause it's your time, time to fly
Any moment everything can change

Everyone clapped. I smile and bow down, then I look at George and Lennie. George has this look of admiration. Lennie smiles like a child.

And I'm guessing George liked my singing. I hope.
