Ruby woke up that morning to head to work at Granny’s diner. She selected what she usually wore as a waitress. Her short red shorts and white button down shirt that had been mostly unbuttoned to a deep v and she had tied the bottom up to show her midriff. She grabbed a pair of black heels and headed to the diner.
She knew when she walked in the diner that Granny would criticize what she was wearing. Sure enough once she walked in the rebuking was instant. “You should be ashamed of what you are wearing. You are a young woman who is going to be the future owner of this diner dress like it” Granny told her. She pretend to listen to the lecture and rolled her eyes after Granny had finished. Ruby went about her typical day.
The busy lunch hour had slowed to a crawl when she heard ” Ruby come here please ” from Granny. ” Coming ” replied Ruby. ” It’s time to do the books for the week” Granny told her. Ruby gave out a heavy sigh and started to work on them. The longer she spent with them the more frustrated with them she got. Not to mention Granny kept coming in and out telling her “fix this.” “No it is written like this.” Frustrated Ruby stormed outside.
"I’ve had enough for one day with these stupid books" hissed Ruby angrily. She closed her eyes and began wishing she could be somewhere else but remembered that things didn’t quite work out for her the last time she wanted to leave. Ruby let out another heavy sigh and gazed upwards. Tonight is the full moon and she could feel the power of the wolf beneath her skin. Slowly she started calming down and was startled by someone who was walking up to her.
"Hi. How are you? " stated Ruby.
