If it's one thing Lizzy hated and that was being double teamed especially by two men where more stubborn than her. Mr. Bauer filled Mr. Curtis in the discussion they were having. The older gentleman simply looked at Lizzy and smiled. "Well there's a black tie event taking place in Colorado. Now if I am not mistaken that's your home state isn't it?" Lizzy already knew where this conversation was headed to. "I need to attend a meeting with a client in a few days," said Lizzy who tried desperately to come up with excuses. "Ms Jones let me remind you that there's no point in arguing with us," said Mr. Curtis who leaned his hip against her desk. Mr. Bauer smiled and said, "We are better at it than you." Looking at the men Lizzy said, "Alright I'll go ahead and take a few days off." Mr. Bauer and Mr. Curtis shook their heads. "Lets try two months." Lizzy's mouth dropped and then she began to ramble. Mr. Bauer held up his hand. "Look Ms Jones my nephew had just finished his third year tour. He will also be attending the event, but he will be bringing a friend along." Lizzy's cheeks reddened, " Are you trying to set me up?"
Jeremy Cartwright was having second thoughts about the whole set up. "I can't believe I agreed to this. How am I gonna recognize this woman?" asked Jeremy. Daniel Lee was placing his ranks in their spot. "Come on Cartwright all this work and no play is starting to get old. Don't tell me your're still hung up on that girl from grade school." Jeremy fixed his army suit's cuffs. "You don't understand dude. Lizzy and I are connected and that special bond can't easily be broken." Daniel shook his head, "Man for once just have a great time. My unle assured me that this girl is drop dead gorgeous." Chuckling at his friend's comment. Ever since their first year tour, Daniel has tried setting him up with every female they encountered. The guy just didn't understand that his heart already belonged to the girl with the star quartz pendant.
