“Got yourself a job offer, Cassie,” Ronnie said happily. “Just like you wanted.”
“But…but I don’t know anything,” Cassandra said. “Not much anyway.”
“I didn’t know much either when my grandmother asked me to help her out in the shop, but I eventually learned everything she knew and I took it upon myself to learn what she didn’t know. I ended up teaching her a few things. So, what I’m asking is for you to do as I did. You would be my apprentice and your job will be to learn as much as you can so you can be of real help to me and to my clients. I want you to actually learn on your own as well as from me. That way we grow together in knowledge and experience,” the woman said. “Only if you are interested, of course.”
“Oh, believe me, she’s interested!” Ronnie said. “Simon is gonna flip when we tell him!”
“Who is Simon if I may ask?” the lady said.
“He’s my brother. You know him. He came here the other day to get the ingredients for Uncle Mac’s never-fail-cure-for-all tonic,” Ronnie said. “He made the magic potion for Cassie cuz she was so sick and now she’s all better.”
The woman frowned slightly apparently trying to remember.
