"Hey would you like to meet the staff?" Dave smiled. "I mean we can't be rude to them can we? And we have all week to talk and lunch is in an hour. SO ya wanna meet 'em?"
"Sure, Lisa 's cool are the others like her?" Jayde asked standing up.
"On second though, why dont we stay here." Dave looked at her.
"Oh, Dave. Please I want to. For me?" Jayde's face suddenly went into a sad puppy fave with those big blue eyes no one can say no to. So Dave smiled and lead her out the door.
"Guys this is Jayde. SHe just came here from New Orleans." Dave introduced the girl into the group that gathered around and looked at her in wonder. "Jayde this is Beth, Catherine, Joe, Bill, Matthew and you all ready met Lisa." Dave pointed to each of them.
