‘Blended’ By Tiffany Riggins

Violet is a Freshman in college, coming from a large family she needs to get a job to help pay her expenses away from home. She had saved up enough from her summer job to pay for her first semester and planned on using that time to find a job on campus. She is offered a position there as a busser most days at one of the local holes-in-the-wall cafes.
Ecstatic about working at her self-proclaimed home away from home she begins to get to know the other staff. They all went to the ballet together just before spring break and Violet could see the magic in the way the women moved and seemed to almost hover in the air. When they returned they found the café had caught fire, the cause was unknown but the theory was that one of the machines shorted since they were all second hand. This is when, while consoling Melissa they find out the shop had only barely been getting by. They need $50,000 to repair and replace everything they would have to permanently close. After several fundraisers, Melissa tells them the landlord that owned the space would be canceling their lease. Everyone was shattered by the news. Violet told them she had an idea to keep everyone together if they didn’t mind a few changes. They opened up their new shop later, Brews n’ Books.
