Melody's Nanny Chapter 2
Normally, Eric would be in his office, working on countless papers for his boss. But last night, after he put the nanny advertisement on the newspaper, he had requested a dia off on Saturday from his boss thus he could find a nanny for Melody. His boss agreed and hoped to have him back at work soon.
Now Saturday came and everybody read Eric's advertisement. Many nanny candidates showed up at Eric's house. The Interviews took place in the living room. While Eric was sure to hire a nanny, Melody was not thrilled.
I don't know why Daddy is doing this! I don't want a nanny! Nannies are not fun! She thought angrily.
"So, what is your name?" Eric asked the first candidate. The first candidate was a high school teenager.
"I'm Beth Murphy," answered the first candidate, dully.
"Tell me, why do you want to apply for this job?"
"I don't. My mom told me to get this job! I don't even like kids!" she said rudely.
"Well, there's the door!" Eric said, rudely back. The seguinte interviews went on, what felt like, for hours.
As the last candidate left, Eric pounded his hand on the big wooden table.
"I CAN"T BELIEVE THIS!" he yelled.
I WENT THROUGH 35 WOMEN AND YOUNG PUNKS AND NONE OF THEM ARE WORTH HIRING!"
He panted heavily, trying to calm down.
Melody put her hand on his arm.
"Father, don't worry. I don't need a nanny." Eric took his hand off the mesa, tabela and turned
toward his daughter.
"Honey, you do. I need someone to watch over you while I'm at work," he explained. He sighed. "But what is the use? This "Nanny Hunt" is becoming tougher than I thought!"
Melody frowned. She knew he was right. He has been needed at work a lot lately, and has no time for her anymore. Eric sighed sadly. If he could, he could call his family to babysit Melody but they have kept their distance from him ever since-
"Daddy," Melody interrupted his thoughts. "Can we go to the pawk?"
"Sure," said Eric. "Let's go.
At the park, Melody began playing with her futebol ball while Eric sat on a bench. He tried to relax and forget about the terrible interviews that he went through today. He looked at the ground and covered his face.
Oh man, what I'm going to do!
"Well, it has been a long time," a female voice said. Eric saw two feet in black high heels. He slowly looked up to see a tall, large woman, smiling seductively at him. She was an obese woman with purple skin, and white hair. She was also wearing a black dress and had a lot of makeup on, despite her age of being 50.
"Ursula?" Eric asked, dumbfounded. "T-This is a suprise."
"What? No 'Hello Ursula deary?' Not happy to see me?"
"No, I'm just surprised you are here. I thought you were at work," Eric said, politely. He allowed her a seat.
"Oh no, I have a day-off," Ursula explained, as she sat down seguinte to him.
"Oh, okay," said Eric.
As they were talking, Melody was trying to practice kicking her ball at a long distance.
Hmm, Let's see if I can kick the ball from here to the tree.
She swung her leg and booted the ball. However, she kicked the ball so far that it went past the tree! Melody ran after it.
"You know," said Ursula, as she moved closer to Eric. "We should go out for dinner. Just you and me." She trailed her fingers down his shirt. Eric smiled nervously and looked at his watch. "Um, gee! look at the time! I must get going, for my um, meeting!" Ursula growled but hid her anger. "Oh, well, see you later." She walked away. Eric sighed in relief! Man, that woman was creeping him out! He turned around to look for Melody and was shocked to see Melody running toward the street! "MELODY!" Eric took off after her, like a rabbit.
Melody retrieved the ball. Suddenly she heard a woman's voice calling to her, "Honey, watch out!" She looked up and gasped. A car was coming toward her! Melody was so horrified that her legs have lost their will to move. She didn't know what to do! The car was going to crash into her any second!
