"hello?" Clare called from the other end.
"Oh, uh h-hey Clare! it's Eryss" Eryss stumbled on her words "um...Is your Mom there please?" She asked
"You okay Eryss?" Clare asked concern lacing her voice. Shoot. Eryss wasn't hiding her nervousness as well as she thought, it wasn't like Clare to ask such questions. Clare was caring and not at all indifferent as some thought her to be, she'd just been raised not to react to every slightly off syllable of a person's voice.
"Yeah, just kinda nervous." Eryss explained "I've never had a job before"
"No" Clare agreed "But you've met my mom before and she loves you."
"your Mom loves everyone, Clare" Eryss pointed out
"She does." Clare agreed "But she really likes you, she asks after you more than anyone else."
"Really?" Eryss breathed.
"yup" Clare assured her "and I talked to her about you working her, she thinks it's a great idea but she does want to do a mini interview so you have the experience. You have the job though."
