2.15 Ruminating over Coffee at Night

Allie sat in the pre-dawn hours drinking coffee and contemplating her dilemma.  She needed to find a different job, a real job.  She couldn’t stay a waitress forever.  Her mother’s birthday party had suddenly made Allie very aware of the passage of time.  She knew she needed to sit down with Lazlo and tell him what she was thinking, what she was feeling.  Her relationship with Dominick had essentially ended when they walked away from University.  She understood that now, but that understanding complicated things even more.  It meant she was free to pursue her feelings for her studly boss, but that, well, that terrified Allie.  Soon, she would talk to Lazlo soon, if for no other reason than she couldn’t keep up with these sleepless nights anymore.

In the meantime, though, she had a lot to do.  There was Bianca’s portrait to finish, and another party to help plan.  It was only a week after Bianca’s birthday that another of the DiPotere clan planned to transition into the next phase of her life. Little Caprice was on the verge of teen-hood, and loving every minute of it. Bianca, on the other hand, threatened to break into tears at the sight of Caprice, or any mention of birthdays, or cakes, or parties. The last of her little girls was growing up, Bianca was nearing a breakdown, and Allie was the one unofficially appointed to pull the whole thing off.

On top of that, there never seemed to be enough time to sit down with Miss Emmy and pick her brain about the family curse.  Allie’s passion, her driving force, her life’s pursuit, seemed to have taken a backseat to everyday life.  It was always there, though, in the back of her mind, tugging, pulling at her.  Right after the party, she thought, after the party Miss Emmy and I will make a day of it, and she can tell me everything I need to know.
