Friend Loan

by astanhaus


Looming over the end of the month is always the first of the next month and my rent payment. To make rent, I must be on my best behavior.

(click on the bold-faced vocab words:))

My bestie Babe was not so well behaved and asked me to spot her rent. Of course I wanted her to have a roof over her head, but that’s a sizeable chunk of $$.

I live my life without expectations, so it is filled it with surprises.

But with this, I did not want anything near a surprise. The expectations were crystal clear.

I am to be paid back in full by the end of the month. For each week of late payment, she will clean my apartment. How’s that for incentives?!

She autographed the contract on the dotted line. Good luck, Babe!
