She tried to let greg get a feel for runing the store. She basicaly looked over his shoulder. He was in charge. He was doung good. She felt encouraged by how he was doing. Despite her reluctance to leave the store, she felt that it was realy in good days.

She started the car. She headed out. She was excited to find an apartment.she was ready to begin this phase of her life. Things were starting to fall into place. She was glad of that.
She had hyim music playing on her car cd player. She was excited to get to her destination. She really hoped she woukd find a place today. One less thing to fall into place. She needed this to fall into place. She hoped that it would.
She made it before she was suposed to view the first apartment. Within a few minutes, the lady arived. “Hello im doris. Are you becca?”she asked.
“I am. It is good to meet you.”she said. “It is a one bed room apartment as i said on the phone. It is a prety qiet building. ” she said.
They walked up the stairs. She took out her keys and opened the door. The apartment was small but it was well maintained. She did not need anything extravagant. She just really wanted a roof over her head. She would not spend a lot of time hear. This looked perfect for her needs. This was only her first apartment checked out.
She did like this one. “So your moving to thr area?” doris asked. “Yes. I want to be closer to my fiancée. I have a job lined up. Now just need a place to live. ” she told her.
“Who is your fiancé. I tend to know prety much everyone in town.”dorris said. ” jim ball.” she said. “Pastor jim. I go to faith church. I did not realize he was engaged. ” she said. “We are keeping it qiet for now. “She said.
“I promise i wont tell anyone. I promise. I know he was engaged before he started pastoring hear. It did not work out i gues. ” dorris remarked. “That was me! We were engaged. We have reconnected. ” she said. “That s great. ” she said.
After the tour they went back outside. ” i have a few more places i am scheduled to look at but i like this one. ” becca said. ” i am suposed to show it to a few people on monday but if your going to be buying into bill brakets bookstore and your engaged to pastor jim, i would love to have you hear. If you want it its yours. If you decide you want to go with it,call me by tonight. If i dont hear from you, i will assume you found a different one. ” doris said. “Ok. That sounds like a plan. ” she told her.
She toured the other apartments. She liked them but found that she liked the first one. She decided to go with the first one. She called doris. She went to see her and gave her the deposit. She was excited. It was finaly feeling real. This was really happening. She could not be hapier.
Jim spent the day working on his sermon. He did some visitation in the early afternoon. Then he went home. Then she pulled in.
He went out to meet her. They hugged. “I got an apartment! Doris bracey says hi. ” becca said. “Ypur renting from dorris. She is a nice lady. ” he said.
“I am so pysched. It is a great apartment. Small but perfect for me. “She said. ” it will be temporary. ” he said. “Thats how i see it. It will be good. ” becca said.
They went by the apartment on there way to the park. They had lunch in the park. They chatted for quite a bit.
The time got closer for her big move. She would start to pack. The next Saturday he drove up to her old apartment and helped her loud her car and his. They moved some stuff there.
He felt weird being back in hagervile. He considered stoping by to see his parents. He decided not to on this trip. She did not move everything but move a lot of stuff.
The time got closer. They decided to anounce it to the church after she moved. Doris did keep the news qiet.
Her parents were on bored, not everyone in her church was. As news of the re-engagement reached the church, there was mixxed reaction. To some jim was a periah. His parrents were not sure how to react when they learned about it. They wanted them to get back together but not like this. They wanted him to return to the i.f.b then get engaged again. That was not how it happened.
To be continued.
Becca gets ready to make the big move. Her church reaches out to jim asking him not to go though with this. His dad makes a suprise visit to his office.
