The next Friday, I got a reply back from my boss.
Dear Cherry (that’s me)
Thankyou for your contribution to the calendar. I can certainly use the picture in the calendar, so you can look forward to that.
However, one of the other girls sent in a picture that was just as daring as yours, so unfortunately you won’t be paid to be in the calendar.
If you wish, you can make another submission … ?
See you back here behind the bar in around 3 months.
Damn it!! Who did that!? Well, there was no way for me to find out, but I now realized I had been naive to think that none of the others would have the guts to have some pictures taken at the beach.
Well, I knew what to do – I was sure to win, because I’m simply more liberated than the other girls – I would also be the only one that was not shy to give body tequila’s to the guests …
I called my friend the photographer again – this time with a plan that would surely win me the main spot in the calendar.
This time I wanted to go topless – so I decided it would be best to do it from my friend’s studio.
“Are you ready?” I asked my friend with the camera while holding my strap out, ready to let it go. He was ready. “OK, let’s see” he said cryptically.
I let the strap drop and eased my bra off. Click. I had just had my first topless picture taken and it was going to be in calendar that people can buy. I realized that fully now – that even if I somehow didn’t win from this, my boss would obviously still put the picture in the calendar.
And what a picture. I was really happy with the outcome, but nervous about the result. I tried to think rationally – that none of the other girls would dare to so, so there was no reason for me to be nervous. Rather, I was excited about being in the calendar – winning and getting paid quite a big amount of money to be in it, would not be … skanky – that would be like a kick start of a modeling career. That would just be cool.
I mailed the picture to my boss, who didn’t respond right away – I figured that was probably a good thing …
