After splitting up with her lover, Alina was forced to live in her car. She had access to her school’s facilities as a teacher, but she was discovered one day by a colleague, and things didn’t go as planned.
“Mark, I can’t believe what I’m hearing!” After catching her lover in bed with another woman, Alina raged at him.
“WHERE ARE WE IN OUR OWN HOUSE?”
“Calm down, Alina. It’s simply… it’s……” Mark was stuttering.
“It’s… WHAT?!?” says the narrator. This can’t be justified! “Get the hell out of here!” Alina’s screams persisted.
“Do you want to know something? You can’t push me out since I’ve been sick of you for months. The lease has my name on it! “You’ve got to get out!” Mark retorted with a cry of his own. With dread, Alina understood he was correct.
They never added her to the lease agreement since they were waiting to sign a new one when she moved in with him after dating for a year. OMG! She reflected, “I have nowhere to go.” But she wasn’t going to show her grief to Mark.
“Fine! “I’m getting out!” She exclaimed, her gaze falling on the sassy lady in her bed. “Good luck with him; if he can cheat on his long-term partner, he’ll cheat on you as well.”
Alina took a suitcase and began gathering her belongings. She was in her car an hour later. She exclaimed furiously at Mark, “I’ll be back for the rest!” since the reality is that she couldn’t fit everything into her car in one trip.
Kiara, one of her friends, was contacted and asked if she could crash with her. “Please accept my apologies, Alina.” Right now, I’m out of space. My boyfriend’s sister is having financial difficulties, so I had no choice but to ask her to stay with us. “However, I can keep some of your belongings in our garage,” Kiara explained.
That was preferable to nothing. She was done with Mark when she finished moving her belongings from his apartment.
“Thank you very much, Kiara. She informed her pal, “I’ll get them as soon as I find a home.”
“I wish I could do more,” Kiara said, regretfully acknowledging that she didn’t have the space. Due to her poor teacher income, Alina didn’t have enough funds for a deposit or rent. She reasoned to herself that if she lived in her car for a few months, she might save money.
As a result, she parked her car in the school parking lot and moved in. When everyone was gone, she could utilize the gym facilities, and everything will be well shortly.
Unfortunately, due to financial difficulties, she was still living there a few months later. Her car required a new battery, and her mother requested a little loan to cover the cost of some pricey medication.
Regardless, she’d become accustomed to her living situation, despite the fact that no one understood what she was going through. Her students were too young to notice, and by 5 p.m., all of her coworkers had left. She usually showered first thing in the morning when no one was there.
One morning, though, was different. Coach Franco Patton emerged in the corridor as she was headed towards the gym showers with a towel and her amenities. “Miss Duncan?” says the narrator. He inquired, “What are you doing here so early?”
“Oh, Coach Patton,” says the narrator. This morning, there was a problem with my shower, so I arrived early. “I’m really sorry,” Alina said, hoping he’d believe her. “How do you feel?”
“Last night, I was reading some plays and fell asleep on the couch.” He smiled and replied, “I’m so humiliated.”
“Don’t be concerned. “Well… I’ll see you later,” Alina remarked as she walked into the restroom. She was happy that he didn’t ask any more questions. Coach Patton, on the other hand, became skeptical.
Miss Duncan had always had a thing on him, and he didn’t buy the fib about her having a home shower. As a result, he began to pay closely and later that day noticed Alina getting into the backseat of her automobile. He assumed she was asleep in her car.
“Miss Duncan?” says the narrator. He phoned her the next day after school.
“Oh, Coach,” I say. You may refer to me as Alina. After turning around, she remarked, “We’re coworkers.”
“In that case, you may refer to me as Franco.” Anyway, do you want to join me for dinner tonight?” Franco had enquired of her.
His request had a wonderful surprise for Alina. She said, “Well, it sounds great.” They got together at a nearby restaurant and were instantly seated. They started off with casual conversation, but Franco insisted on being truthful.
“Pay attention, Alina. I’m going to tell it as it is. Last night, I observed you getting into your automobile. “Are you currently residing there?” Franco enquired.
“Oh no,” says the speaker. I had a feeling you wouldn’t trust my shower deception. Yes, I ended my relationship with my partner a few months ago. “I’ve been putting money aside for a new house, but the last several months have been very taxing on my finances,” Alina explained.
“There’s nothing to be ashamed of.” Even the tiniest area in this metropolis is becoming too expensive. “It’s insane,” Franco said.
“Right? With such big deposits, it’s also hard to find a new spot. “However, I’m getting close to my objective now,” Alina continued. They proceeded to chat about everything and realized how much they shared.
“I can give you some money so you can get moving right now.” You’re not allowed to stay there any longer. Franco stated at the end of the night, “It’s not safe.”
“It’s all right. “I’m almost there,” Alina remarked. She flatly declined to take him up on his offer.
“You may pay me back whenever you want, and there will be no interest.” Furthermore, there are no strings connected.
Please. Franco persuaded her, “I’ll feel so much better.” Finally, Alina agreed, and he assisted her in relocating. For a long period, though, they were just friends.
After a few months, she was able to repay him. He finally asked her out again, and she said yes. Franco demonstrated how nice and kind he was every day when they married a few years later.
