a big fat chance

"Seriously?" Oliver was baffled. The numbers were great at the place on campus. Soaring so much more than here in the old downtown area. Yes, there were splurges here at OLIVER'S for lunch, but nothing to the magnitude on campus with hungry college students... who evidently liked the prices and the sweets.

Even so, he missed Jules' swiftness. He was on it when it came to service. Something, Oliver couldn't say the same for the couple of senior citizens who took their time, but no one rushed them. They knew people, especially, old timers. It was all right, Oliver would adjust. Only, he needed to make more to ship out.

"You can't leave Jules stranded like this." Willow informed him. Yes, she'd been around to help Jules out the last three days.

"What do want me to do?" He didn't have the funds to hire anymore people. He knew it wouldn't be easy, but how would their be a profit?

"I want to invest." She didn't look pleased, though. Perhaps, down right angry.

"Invest?" This was new. "How much?" She was just a college girl. He looked at Jules, as if he'd put her up to it. All Jules revealed was that silly grin of his. There they were sitting in the middle of his empty place, after hours. Oliver shook his head.

"Enough." She nodded as if she knew what she was doing. "I've talked with personal. Perhaps we can work a deal, work study."

"Really?" Never heard of anything like it, he thought. "Well.." He still wanted to know how much. "Do you know what you're getting into?" He looked at her seriously. He shot a look at Jules. "Especially with him?"

"I want to do this, but I want you to make Jules your partner." Willow decided.

"A partner?" Oliver cracked up. This was the funniest thing he'd ever heard of.

I have a feeling Oliver likes being boss, but that would be hard keeping everything in check, now.

A partnership may be a humbling experience for him. :)
