Milk Chocolate Desires
Leticia gasped out loud as the taxi she was riding in turned onto a private drive, leading towards the mansion she’d spotted from the road. With all the preliminary testing she’d had to go through just to get an interview for the live in maid position, she’d expected the house to be big…but not this grand.
Carefully pruned shrubbery lined the expanse of white stone they now drove on, the taxi circling around a spouting fountain before pulling in front of a pillared entrance. Leticia stared out the window in wonder at the sprawling brick structure, her eyes widening as the front doors opened almost immediately. She giggled to herself as a tall African American woman hurried towards the car, dressed in the most revealing butler uniform she’d ever seen. Through the open window, Leticia could hear the click of the woman’s stilettos against the stone, growing closer, her fingers now fumbling to retrieve her purse from beneath her feet.
“Keep the change,” she grimaced as she paid the pricey cab fare, tucking her last twenty back into her wallet.
