TEMP GIRL: A NEW Daily Serial

Temp Girl Banner Final

Change is good...but not great.

 

Hey, there.   It’s me, the girl you probably hate—you know, the tall skinny blonde at the gym, the one who disses you at the water fountain?  I’m here to tell you everything you suspect about me is true:

Yes, I have an easy job making ridiculous money.

Yes, I turned the extra bedroom in my fab Atlanta condo into a closet for my designer wardrobe.

Yes, I have a personal assistant.

And yes, as a matter of fact, my gorgeous boyfriend is a doctor.

My life is beyond amazing and more than I could’ve dreamed of when I was growing up.  My mother might say I’ve “gotten above my raisin’.”  I guess that’s why I’ve become such a diva…and why a part of me has always been waiting for the other shoe to drop.

As much as you dislike women like me (rightfully so because admittedly, even I kind of hate me), you’ll be happy to know when the shoe finally dropped—Christian Louboutin, of course—it landed with a giant, life-changing crash.

I'm Della, by the way.  Della Culpepper.  And trust me—you won't want to miss my freefall into reality.



The TEMP GIRL daily
 serial will run July 1 - December 31.  The daily episode will be available only for 24 hours (approximately 4am-4am Eastern), so set a reminder on your phone, computer, or fridge to get your free TEMP GIRL fix every day!

 


 

December 10, Sunday

KYLE STROKED MY CHEEK.  “I’ll need to administer the injectible soon so the bruising will have time to heal before the wedding.”

“Don’t you think I’m a little young to start these procedures?”

He looked affronted.  “Darling, you know how I feel about this.  Women should begin a regime before they need it so it’s not such a drastic change.  If done properly, no one will suspect a thing.  I know you want to look your best in our wedding photos.”

A picture of Helen’s red, swollen face after being subjected to the injectible came to mind.  “I appreciate your thoughtfulness, Kyle, but I have a lot of obligations between now and the wedding, and I don’t think I’ll have any down-time.”

He shifted on the large chaise where we lounged in the sunroom.  “I understand, and I think I have a solution.  What if we wait to have the wedding photos taken at a later date?”

I squinted.  “A later date?”

He nodded.  “Perhaps in the spring… when we’ve had time to catch our breath.”

“I guess it could be fun to recreate the day.”

He lowered a kiss to my cheek.  “Right.  And it would give you time to lose a few pounds.”

I blinked.  I’d planned to lose weight, but his words still cut deep.  “I haven’t had time to go to the gym lately.”

He grinned and moved his hand across my sweater to cup my breast.  “I can think of a good way to burn a few calories.”

I knew he meant for it to sound sexy, but something about building a cardio workout into lovemaking just killed it for me.

I stilled his hand with mine.  “Actually, I’d like to hold off until our wedding night to make it more special.”

Kyle sighed, but nodded.  “Okay.”

Besides, if he saw my two layers of Spanx, he’d probably call off the wedding. ~
