After an interesting start to her day, Rini is on her way to the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne to view a new commission.
It is lovely driving in the warm sunshine. Rini loves summer, almost as much as she loves the other seasons. Each season has its own special charms for her. The abundance of flowers and harvest make it easier to bear the unrelenting heat of an Australian summer. And Rini loves to grab every opportunity to get out of the city.
After about an hour Rini reaches the new client’s suburb on the outskirts of Melbourne. It is a beautiful area, full of farm land with livestock and many vineyards and gentle rolling hills.
The client is waiting outside his house and watches Rini drive onto the property.
Rini gets out of the car and meets the cliet. He is incredibly attractive, an added bonus to the job.
Rini whips out her measuring tape and sets to measuring the available space.
Christian tries to give her the information she requires, but he is clearly struggling …
Christian walks her to her car and sees her off.
She’s sad to leave the countryside as she turns onto the freeway to head back to the city …
And all too soon she is back at home.
Charlotte joins her after work for a quick Japanese take-out dinner before they head off to attend the gallery opening. Rini is having a mixed Bento box and Charlotte is enjoying some sushi and sashimi. They also have a tray of Gyozas.
The girls clear the table and refresh their glasses of wine.
The girls get ready and take the short walk to the gallery. It is packed and there are many local celebrities in attendance. It promises to be a bit of a booze-fest with an open bar and light refreshments.
Seemingly out of nowhere Lily appears behind them.
Christian leaves the group he was in and comes over to talk to Rini.
The girls leave Christian and Rini to talk and go in search of some liquid refreshments. The gallery is well prepared, with an assortment of drinks and nibbles including oysters.
Once back at home, Rini prepares to go straight to bed. She is totally spent.
