Emily gets to speak
| Morning, everybody! My name is Emily Burnside. Welcome to Bannockburn Inn. I have worked here at the Inn since I was a teenage in high school. My mother, Catherine, used to assign little chores to my brother and I when we were really small. It wasn't until I showed real interest in learning the business, that she and my grandmother started teaching me about it from the ground up.
My mother worries about me constantly. It drives me nuts sometimes. I was supposed to married a year ago, but my fiancé turned out to be a real lying, cheating SOB. I found out he was cheating on me with an old flame, and he got her pregnant. When I confronted him about it, he didn't deny it. I called off the engagement then and there and handed him back the ring.
Maybe it was because he never expected my reaction, but he laughed at me. He said he was only in it for the money. I was told by him that I would never find anyone else like him. (For my sake, I certainly hope that is the case.) He then proceeded to tell me that no male would ever want to be with a woman as independent as myself. Especially, one who has nothing going for her in the looks department.
I was pretty devasted by the whole thing and the awful things he was saying made me really angry. I managed to keep my cool and tell him that I would rather be single and wealthy, than be married to a sorry jackass such as himself and then threw him out of the house. Between you and me, I only threw in wealthy to get his goat. It has taken me a while to get over this. I will say that I have absolutely no use for the male half of the universe right now. The only exception to that would be my brother, whom I adore.
I just recently crossed paths with one of the most irritating guys I have ever met. He is just a bit too cocky for me. I suppose he is the type who is used to getting by on charm and good looks. Something I don't need in my life right now. A smooth-talking, good-looking charmer. Yes, I admit it, he is quite easy on the eyes! Worse yet, my mother and grandmother think so too! Those two were utterly charmed by him. I could almost see the wheels turning in their heads as they watched us during the interview. Heaven help me!
