It was a busy time of year, the end of May. With hundreds of weddings planned for June, Victoria found herself working long hours, with very little sleep. Victoria is a beautiful person, the best boss anyone could ever have. She was well known for her breath taking wedding cakes. Her business, " Sweet Confections " was taking off to a wonderful start. There were two hundred weddings planned for June, so Victoria found herself having to hire extra help. It never crossed her mind, that her bakery would do so well, so fast. But when one client saw her wedding cakes, news spread like wild fire, and Victorias cakes became sought after, by the most wealthy of clients...
Victoria brushed back a curl, that had fallen in her eyes. Her long blond hair, and sky blue eyes, were enough to melt any mans heart. Underneath the flour stained apron, was a body in perfect shape. Victoria always made time to workout, and take care of herself. Victoria was twentyeight, but didn't look a day older than twentyone. Her relationship with Joe,was on the rocky side. But that didn't bother her much, because she wasn't in love with Joe, anyway.
Joe Brister was a nice guy, and all, but he was more of a best friend type. He worked for NYPD. He stayed just as busy with his job, as Victoria was with hers...
Going over the bills, and payroll. Victoria finds an order for a four tier wedding cake. White cake, with pink,and baby blue roses. trimmed in white, needed by June twentyfifth. The name Jason Dumas was on the order.
Victoria thought, " Now where have i heard that name before? " Finishing her paperwork, she grabs her coat,and was about to close up, when the phone rings. She hesitated answering it, because she was so exhausted. But she had to answer it, could be someone canceling their order. It was pretty common for that to happen. Relationships breakup, or they find someone else to cater their wedding.

" Yes! " The mans voice replied. " My name is Jason Dumas. I ordered a wedding cake, for the twentyfifth of June. Sorry to bother you, but may i speak with the owner, please! "
" My name is Victoria Simmons, I'm the owner," She told him. " Is there something wrong? "
Now Jason was thinking hes heard her name before. " Yes," he replied. " My fiancee would like to change the colours on the cake. When would be a good time to come in and speak with you? "
" Tomorrow morning is good for me, " Victoria answered. " Is nine o'clock OK with you? "
" Nine is fine, ' he laughed. " Bet you get this sorta thing happen a lot, huh! "
" Sometimes," Victoria laughed." I'll see you in the morning, Mr. Dumas," as she hung up the phone.
Victoria didn't recognize the voice, but his laugh.. She couldn't get it off her mind. She has heard that laugh before, but where...
She thought about it all the way home. After dinner, Victoria takes a long hot bubble bath. Being totally exhausted, she relaxes among the scented suds...
