In the far corner of her office, next to her potted palm tree, sat the
bucket of tools she had been avoiding all morning. Glaring at them,
she pushed out her chair and got up from her desk. She took off her
blazer and neatly hung it on a hanger then placed it in her small office
closet. She kicked off her heels and grabbed her tennis shoes. Sitting
down on the small sofa that flanked her desk, she laced them up,
double-knotting the bows. Two deep breaths later and she walked
over to the bucket holding her wrench, hammer, screwdrivers, and
plumber’s snake and strode out of her office.
She approached room 115—the room Mrs. Grierson had made a
complaint about earlier that morning—and used her master key to
unlock the door. Luckily, she was able to sneak in without anyone
seeing her. No witnesses meant no explanations. The last thing she
needed was to have to explain to a staff member why she had a bucket
of tools in hand.
“Oh God.” Her whole body cringed when she walked into the
She closed her eyes and turned away for a moment, silently
hoping and praying that when she looked back it would have all been
a dream. No such luck, though. The leak Mrs. Grierson had reported
was actually a lake—a very large lake, in fact, which was flooding the
entire bathroom in one of their nicest suites.
“Well, here goes nothing.”
Jenny walked through the water which was rising to as high as
one inch. Her shoes were soaked inside and out after just two steps,
making an awful squishing noise. Luckily the bathroom had a step
down from the main living quarters so there was no immediate danger
of it flowing into the living or bedrooms of the suite.
Hesitation wasn’t an option as she knelt in inches of water on the
tile floor. She studied the pipe that had water pouring from it for a
moment before she reached for her wrench. Something her
grandfather had told her when she was little stuck in her mind.

“Righty tighty, lefty loosey.”
“Hmm.” She smiled.
The concept was so simple, really. Why she had been so worried
about having to try to fix a silly, little plumbing problem, she wasn’t
sure. Righty tighty. Lefty loosey. No sweat!
Much more relaxed and pleased with herself, she grabbed her
wrench, adjusted the fitting to be snug around the pipe, and turned to
the right, pulling the wrench away from her and toward the wall.
Water shot everywhere, all around her, covering her and
everything within five feet. Recovering from the shock of what had
just happened, she squinted her eyes, trying to keep the spraying
water from obstructing her vision. With water pummeling her directly
from the fitting she had inadvertently loosened, she could barely tell
where she was placing the wrench. After fumbling through a few tries
she finally had the tool snug back around the fitting.
She pulled the wrench in the opposite direction and…”Oh, shit!”
She screamed the four-letter word loud enough for people to hear her
on the top floor.
Somehow in her efforts to tighten the loose fitting she had instead
managed to break it, causing a full rush of water to shoot out at her.
Not unlike Old Faithful, the diligent geyser in Yellowstone National
Park, the pipe erupted with such force she was nearly dumbfounded
“No, no, no, no!” she continued to shout.
“Oh my gosh. Jenny, are you okay?”
Marianne’s voice came from behind her, but she didn’t turn to
look. Instead she sat staring at the eruption before her, drenched and
completely frozen in disbelief. She wanted to do something, but had
no idea what.
Hands touched her shoulders then moved down and wrapped
themselves firmly around her upper arms. Suddenly, she found herself
being moved out of the way. She was able to catch a glimpse of a tall
man with brown hair. He was saying something, but she couldn’t
make out what it was over the rushing sound of water.
Then, as if he had magic hands, he reached below the antique
pedestal sink and turned a knob. The water, which had been coming
out at her as if it was on the attack just moments ago, slowed down to
a light flow, then a drip, then finally nothing at all.
The water shutoff valve! How could she have been so stupid? Not
sure if she was overworked, overwhelmed, or just overwrought, she
felt completely mortified that her inaction could have made things so
Her epiphany was interrupted by the tall, wet stranger asking,
“Well, did you?”
“I’m sorry? Did I what?” she asked him, confused and still
frazzled by the events of the past minutes.
A smile cocked up on one side of his mouth. “I asked if you had
considered shutting off the water valve before doing any plumbing
For the first time since he’d walked into the room she was finally
getting a good look at him. This man, whoever he was, was tall and
slender, but his wet T-shirt showed her what was hidden underneath
the cotton fabric. His chest was defined by muscles, and while he
didn’t have large, overly muscular arms like so many men she saw on
the beach these days, they were definitely the arms of a working man.
The smile he was giving her wasn’t half bad, either. In fact, if she had
the time for a boyfriend, she would say he was just handsome enough
to be her type.
Time for a boyfriend?
That ridiculous thought brought her back to reality. Bracing her
hands down at her sides, she pushed herself to a standing position.
Holding out her hand toward his, she meant to shake it, but somehow
when his hand met hers, she lost her balance. The next thing she knew
she was slipping and falling to the ground. With his hand in hers, she

unwillingly took him with her and they both crashed down on the
A loud crack echoed in her head when it met with the tile floor. It
disoriented her for a second. That was, until she felt the strong, hard
body lying on top of her. Opening her eyes, she realized their faces
were just inches apart, and she could feel his breath caressing her lips.
Heat warmed her wet body, despite lying there in inches of water.
Her heart began to race again, but not like it had before in her office.
She swallowed a lump of nervousness as it hit her throat. She
attempted to speak, but no words came out.
“Well, sugar. You know, normally I like to spend a little time
getting to know someone before I get horizontal with them, but since
you’re so forceful, I might just make an exception for you.”
