Winter 2014: Athens, Greece
“Caroline, this is completely unacceptable!” Her father shouted at her through the receiver as she pulled the phone slightly away from her ear.
“You can’t go gallivanting overseas and leave your responsibilities behind, Caroline. You lost your job! Do you know how many strings I had to pull to even get you that job in the first place?”
“Why not? I never wanted to work there in the first place and I told you that many times.” Caroline’s rebuttal landed flat as guilt overtook her.
He had a point, she had just up and left her life in New York, traveling to Greece with Logan Clay last month. While she didn’t regret that at all, she did understand her father’s point that the way she left her job as a paralegal at a very prestigious New York City law firm had not been very mature. She hadn’t even told her boss that she quit, she just hadn’t shown up again.
Caroline fiddled with the knot on her wrap skirt that was so light, you could still see underneath to the dark red bikini that she was wearing. She hadn’t even had time to pack a bag before they had left for Greece, having to buy all new clothes once she arrived. There was no way that she could have passed up joining Logan on his trip, especially after the torturous six months they spent split up when he was on tour singing and performing all over the world.
“I’m not becoming a lawyer, Daddy. I’ve been working on my art and sketching while I’ve been out here. I want to pursue that, become an illustrator or maybe do graphic design. I thought you were coming around and going to accept that.” Caroline pleaded with her father to understand, laying her head back on the lounge chair she was stretched out on.
Despite the arduous conversation she was having, there was no way not to enjoy the view from the balcony of their villa atop one of the southern hills of Athens overlooking the beaches on the coast. The sun was warming her skin which had picked up a gentle tan from the last month out here, even her hair had lightened just slightly.
“It’s not that I don’t accept it. Everyone has hobbies, Caroline. Drawing is not a job, it won’t pay your bills and I certainly won’t keep paying your bills forever either.” He retorted.
“I’m not asking you to! I can take care of myself.” At least she wanted to. He had never given her a chance to try, always paying her way through school and then buying her condo. She had never had to take care of herself financially, despite bringing in a decent paycheck at her old job.
Caroline had always enjoyed a luxurious life thanks to her family’s opulence, but traveling with Logan had introduced her to a level of luxury incomparable to anything she had ever experienced. He wanted for nothing and took life one day at a time, doing whatever he wanted, whenever he wanted to.
