Task Drabble 05/29
Since the pandemic is coming to an end, the running joke is that there will be a baby boom because of the stay at home orders. Cosmo wanted to jump on that bandwagon talking about sex mainly. Charlie however had the fun task of talking about how babies changed people's lifestyles and of course baby names. Sitting at her desk she flipped through the baby books her assistant picked up for her from Barnes and Noble. “This is ridiculous” she said to herself she didn’t like the idea of babies especially since she probably couldn’t have any herself. Putting her hand on her stomach she sighed and sat back in her chair.
Thinking about her own name she pressed her lips together. She knew her middle name was family on her mother's side but she didn’t know exactly what her names meant. Opening her laptop she put Charlotte's name meaning into Google and hit enter. Reading that Charlotte meant free she couldn’t help but smile at that. As of last week her divorce was finalized and she was free of her ex husband and that life she once led. Free from the abuse, the degrading, the humiliation and the never ending feeling of dread that was her life.
She liked her name more now that she knew what it meant. Now to see what Giselle meant, typing in Giselle name meaning in Google she scrolled through the results. Reading the result “Beautiful like the stars” made Charlie smile. She was often told that her beauty was exquisite and those who often told her that got the wrath of Diego. Standing at almost six foot with long tanned legs and perfect features she was a sight to see. She liked taking care of herself and yoga was her go to no matter what time of the day it was. Finding out her first and middle name was enough for her. She didn’t care to find out what Montoya meant she was debating to change her name back to Perez but would probably not do it. Maybe this assignment wasn’t going to be so bad after all.
