Aiden Ashley is leaving her apartment to go to work when she gets a call from her landlord demanding the rent. Aiden promises that she’ll have it for him tomorrow. But when Aiden rushes out to her car, her day goes from bad to worse as it fails to start. She slams her hands on the wheel in frustration and phones her boss to tell him she’s going to be late again.
As they drive, Stirling makes conversation. She’s one of his best students and he’s curious why she’s working in a diner. Shouldn’t she be focusing on her education? Aiden explains that working at the diner is how she makes ends meet.
Stirling seems to get an idea, explaining to Aiden that his step-dad runs a business that he’s involved in. Maybe it’s something that Aiden would be interested in? She ponders for a moment, asking Stirling what kind of business it is.
He hesitates and gives Aiden his step-father’s business card. She can think about it and if she’s interested, she can give him a call and he’ll explain what type of business it is.
