****************************

Roni's first day of work seemed to be going just fine. She met her new boss, and they got along great. Then it came time for her training. Roni's boss decided to pair her up with an 18-year-old guy to train her. The guy recognized Roni right from the start, but decided not to say anything. He figured she probably was told who she was often enough, she didn't need to hear it from him. Roni definitely took a liking to Brad, her trainer. He was tall, handsome, and a good dresser. He had sandy blond hair, and deep blue eyes. Brad, it seemed, also took a liking to Roni, for at the end of the day, he asked her out, as friends of course.

"So, Roni, wanna go get like a burger or something? Not as a date, but you know, just to hang"

"Sure. But I'm gonna have to bring a bunch of people with us."

"What do you mean?"

"Well, you've probably noticed that I'm the daughter of the President, and as such, I get stuck with a secret service detail. They're gonna have to know where we're going before we get there, and they're gonna have to tag along. Is that a problem?"

"No. No problem. The more the merrier."

The next day on her rounds around the White House, Roni again ran into a member of the senior staff, only this time, it was CJ.

"I hear congratulations are in order."

"On what? The guy or the job?"

"The job. There's a guy?"

"Yeah, well, there could be."

"What's his name?"

"Brad."

"Where'd you meet Brad?"

"At work. I tell ya CJ, this job thing was a better idea than I originally thought it was going to be."

"Sounds like it."

"Hey, I hate to cut this short, but I was actually headed in to see Josh."

"Sure, no problem. I have some things I need to do anyway. Nice talking to you, good luck with the job and the guy."

"Thanks." Roni replied as she stepped into Josh's office.

"Hey, there Roni. What's up?"

"Got a job."

"Really?"

"Don't act all surprised, I know dad told you. I also know you're the one that picked out my congrats-on-getting-the-job present. Thanks."

"No problem. So did I hear correctly, is there a guy in your life, besides me?"

"Yeah, there's definitely the potential anyway."

"Does your father know yet? Cause if he doesn't, he's gonna have a cow."

"He knows. I told him last night, but currently, we're just friends." Roni said as Leo entered the office behind her.

"Good morning Roni, I believe congratulations are in order on the job."

"Thank you Mr...."

"How many times do I have to tell you, it's Leo."

"Right, sorry. It's just we haven't every really talked, so I'm just not used to calling you Leo, but I promise, I'm gonna start trying."

"So you haven't been trying yet?"

"That's not what I meant. What I meant was....ok, I'm gonna go now, I have to get ready for work."

"Bye," the three said almost simultaneously, as Roni walked off.

"What do you need Leo?"

"Huh? Oh, I um, I came to see if your done with the appropriations bill."

"I've finished reading all of the stuff, yeah."

"Good, you're coming with me."

"Where are we going?" Josh said as he got up.

"You're going to a meeting with some congressmen."

"But I thought you said I was going with you?"

"You are," Leo confirmed.

"Now I'm confused. Am I going to this meeting alone?"

"Yes."

"But I thought you said I was going with you? If you're not coming with me, why am I going with you?" Josh asked in a very confused tone.

"Cause I wanted to brief you on the meeting before you showed up to it, but I have other things I can be doing right now Josh."

"No, no. That's alright. Take all the time you need."
