Lilly had worked hard her whole life. Each school year that passed by, she made great efforts to be the best she could be. She wanted to attend a well-known college, and not only grades were taken into consideration, but her morals and attitudes about life were also considered.
Lily had just graduated high school. She had one summer to live life, and have fun before she started her college years with her scholarship she had been awarded. Her whole life was on the uphill swing. She had everything to gain and nothing to lose.
She wanted to get a part-time job, so that not only would it give her more money, but it would make the lazy summer days go by more quickly. She filled out an application for a popular dive in her local city, and was hired as a waitress there on the spot. She was so excited! Her first day was to be tomorrow.
She rushed home to tell her mom about it, and then she made some phone calls to her friends letting them know about her new job. That evening she spent in front of her bedroom mirror, putting her hair in different styles, to see which she would look best in with her new waitress cap. She tried on different eye shadows and finally found all the make-up she wanted to use and laid them out neatly on her dressing table for the next morning.
The next day she was awake before the alarm went off. Jumping up out of bed with excitement, she ran downstairs to the kitchen, gave her mom a quick peck on the cheek, drank a glass of orange juice, then left to prepare for her first day of work.
The first customer she waited on she was somewhat shy and nervous, making sure she was saying all of the correct things and had a nice smile on her face. He was a handsome man. She could barely keep her eyes off of his eyes and smile. She took his order, and turned it in. She got his drink ready and took it to him. He smiled and asked her name. She told him Lily.
His order was ready and she took it to him. She waited on other customers but remembered her first customer of the day.
Time went by and she had the same customer each time, the first of the day. After time went by, they ended up moving in together. They were madly in love. Their love produced a child, and he wanted nothing to do with this. He left her sitting there on the bed.
She was heart-broken, but knew that she had to give up the child-like attitude and realize she was now responsible for another life.
She got off of the bed, and went home. She and her mom cried together. She stood up and brushed her hair out of her eyes. Her shoulders went back, and she stood standing tall, thinking, Big girls don’t cry.
