The fatal flaw in Elle's plan, even though the pirate's advice really had worked
, left Elle with nothing to wear the next morning. She left Lucas in bed and made her way downstairs and put together an outfit that was something she'd have never worn normally. She wasn't entirely certain who Marc
was, but their Tshirt fit and the art went nicely with the extra large bandana she wrapped around her waist as a sarong.
Elle went behind the counter to leave some money and noticed the account book, just laying there wide open and filled with columns of red ink.
She stood there blinking and going down the numbers. It wasn't like she took care of her own bills, but a big part of her undergrad degree had been about making money so accounting was not entirely foreign. She took the book and started back upstairs, glancing around the store for business opportunities.
[The store is not open...Elle doesn't do that. Just Lucas for now, thanks]
