There was one thing that Leilani did not like about the restaurant business. Despite not being open for breakfast, Leilani still had to be at work by six thirty in the morning so she could start prepping for the day. The restaurant was one of those fresh as fresh gets kind of places and while Leilani liked the concept, the fact that she was now the responsible one for taking deliveries, she had to be there early. She wondered if she got paid extra because of it, but still being new, Leilani didn't want to overstep her bounds.
Leilani was in the office looking at the menu. She had been cooking for most of her life but this was no longer Hawaiian food. The brunette knew what she was getting into when she took the job but after seeing the menu, she was going to have to practice a bit more. Luckily her boss knew her to be a good chef, so she didn't have to worry too much.
There was a knock at the backdoor and Leilani looked at the clock. Seven sharp. This guy was good.
Leilani stood up and went to the back door and unlocked it. When she opened the door, she saw a blond, young man standing there. She had expected an older man with a beard and gray hair, but this guy looked surprisingly young and handsome. She noted the delivery van but figured she'd have some fun first.
"If you're homeless and looking for a meal," she said with a smile. "You'll have to wait until I cook something." She paused. "I'm actually waiting for a delivery. Then I can make you something."
She looked at the guy hoping he would understand her humor or at least not be too offended.
