She waits and then Jye walks in.
Ember: Hi, Jye. I'm good. How are you?
Jye: Well, I'm working on classes for next semester. I am going to take a few less, just in case the modeling schedule gets a little more hectic.
Ember: Oh! Well, maybe you can find some that are virtual. Then you don't have to take so few credits. But, I am hoping there will be more bookings soon.
Jye: People go to college to make good money and have a career. I still want the degree, but if I'm in a career and making money right now, I don't have to rush.
Ember: Good point. But don't give up getting your degree.
Jye: I won't.
Jye has a seat and she and Ember chat until the door opens again and in walks Zenia.
Ember: Hi, Zenia. Come on in. It's good to see you.
Jye: Hey, Girl! Cute outfit. I'll bet you're keeping cool in it.
Zenia: Cool, hot, fly. I'm just workin' it.
Jye (laughing): Well, I guess you have all angles covered. What have you been up to? I haven't seen you since the last shoot we did together. I know I've barely called, but finals were killing me.
Zenia: It's okay. I've been working a crazy schedule because I have to ask to re-work it when I have a 'go see.'
Zenia has a seat.
Jye: That would be great. I don't mind the 'go sees' but I would love to just know I'm going to a shoot because those are paying, 'go sees' are just hopeful.
Zenia: Mmm...me too.
Ember: Well, now that we are expanding a little, I think I can book more jobs. I still need more models to book whole shows and full events, but I'm confident we'll get there. I'll be interviewing again shortly.
Zenia: Okay. I would love to do runway. I can pose and show pouty looks, which are supposed to be sexy.
Jye: That's so crazy. I've always wondered why models look so serious. I guess that's just what they want.
Ember: Yes, it does seem a smile would sell just as much.
The door opens and Seiko walks in.
Ember: Hi, Seiko. I'm glad you could make it. Let me introduce you to Zenia to your left and Jye to your right.
Jye and Zenia: Hi!
Seiko: Hello. It's a pleasure to meet you. I like your names.
Jye and Zenia: Thank you.
Ember: This is Seiko, our most recent addition. I'm so happy to have her. I'm happy to have all of you with me. Seiko, please have a seat and we'll get started with our meeting.
Seiko has a seat and Ember begins the meeting, including her slide show.
Zenia: Alright! I love gifts.
Ember (laughing): I'm glad. Now we have a new partnership to be the sole models for LeeMa Designs. It's an exciting venture and a relationship I am looking forward to cultivating and growing. Also..
Ember talks about LeeMa Designs, behaving as professional, like using proper English and cooperation, but also letting her know if there are any issues, when to contact her and when and what to say 'no' to during a shoot. She also talks about remembering they are a team and even if they ever disagree, they are not to let it show to any of the clients. After reviewing several items about what they should have in their bags, Ember picks up a bag to show the ladies what she has already included in their bags. She starts looking through it.
Jye: I need something too. Those do look cute.
Ember: As long as you're freshening your teeth, be sure to freshen your breath. So here's a travel size bottle of mouthwash. It's a great partner brushing for dental care.
Ember: Lotion will ensure you don't have dry skin.
Jye: I always carry some. My mother would have my head if she thought I was ashy.
Ember: Good, keep carrying it. It's a must.
Ember: I have added an item that you don't have to carry with you for shoots, but I do want you to have. I don't want to overstep my bounds, but you are young and I want to be sure you're protected. I won't ask you about your personal preferences, but I did want to supply these in case you need them. Please protect yourselves. There are a lot of good looking men out there. I won't pretend that you are not going to enjoy your youth and I want you to see your old age too. So please ensure your partner uses these. And that's the last I'll say about that.
Seiko: That is very generous of you.
Zenia: Wow! I love it!
Jye: That will be so helpful.
Ember: I'm glad you appreciate it. I do expect that you will use it to get the items on the list. Please do so.
Jye: I will. I promise.
Zenia: Me too.
Seiko: I will do that. Thank you.
Ember turns the three bags around.
Ember: I have had different model silhouettes applied to the bags too. They are each different and they will make your bags easily identifiable to you when you're all together. I hope you like them.
Zenia: I said I like gifts and these are all great! Thank you so much.
Seiko: Thank you!
Jye: Yes, these are all lovely. Thank you.
Ember wraps up the meeting and the group orders food and drinks and socialize. Seiko is happy to meet Jye and Zenia and they all exchange contact information. After the meeting everyone heads home and Ember picks up Erwyn, who has had a good time playing with Aviana and being cared for by Avery and Craig.
Thanks for stopping by. ~ Jaye
