As soon as their private jet was safely in the air, Tabitha immersed herself her employer’s newly-installed luxury hot tub.

This is the life I deserve… she smiled as she let its warmth envelope her like a big fancy hug.

Tabitha checked the baby monitor as she poured herself a glass of Cristal champagne. Little Barnabas was sleeping peacefully.

What a name for a kid… Barnabas Worthington Van Rensselaer—destined to be a forever nerd.

Tabitha admired the ocean view as she sipped champagne and nibbled on the leftover canapes from last nights’ soiree. Man, was that something! The women’s evening gowns were beyond stunning. She’d never seen so much money and prestige in one room before. Movie stars, artists, authors, and celebrities. As she served them champagne and crudités she’d gazed at them all in adoration but to them, Tabitha was invisible— discounted as a nobody.

When she’d taken this job as nanny-maid with the Van Rensselaers, she’d hoped to meet someone special, a fabulously wealthy Mr. Right. It didn’t take her long to realize her naiveté and deduce that the rich and famous did not mix with the nameless and faceless.

Screw ’em! Tabitha emptied the remainder of the bottle and tossed it to the side. She’d meant to hit the lawn, but it landed on the marble walkway and shattered. Screw ’em all!

She checked the baby monitor again and the kid was still asleep. Good. She flicked it off and watched the screen fade to black. Even babies need some privacy.

By now, Tabitha had a happy little buzz. All she wanted to do was relax, enjoy the sun, and pretend she was one of them. Just for a little while…

She drained her champagne glass and settled back in the hot tub. Soon, she was dreaming sweet dreams.
