You ever meet someone and have that immediate click? That was Kayla and me. First day of our first teaching jobs and we both just knew we were going to be best friends forever.
And we are.
She does a great job keeping me down to earth—a skill I appreciate even more now that I’m a billionaire.
Except lately, it’s like she’s pulling away.
It started with her spending more time with my sister instead of hanging out with me. And now she’s starting to date the youth pastor?
It could be that I’m a little jealous. Seems like everyone is falling in love except me. But I don’t think that’s it.
Because it feels like I’m in danger of losing a lot more than my best friend and I don’t know how to make it stop.
Billionaire Next Door
When I convinced my friends to join me in a scheme to play the stock market, it paid off beyond our expectations. Honestly, most days I don’t even remember that I’m a billionaire. But it was big news for my family. In fact, my cousin made me guardian of her son in the event something happened to her.
At face value, it sounds kind of nice.
But I never really knew my cousin.
And I only found out about her decision a week before the kid showed up on my doorstep.
Thankfully, the woman who brought the boy out to me on the plane is willing to stay and be his nanny.
Since all the local daycares have a waiting list, I don’t have the luxury of being picky. Maybe I have reservations about sharing my home with a beautiful woman, but it’s a completely professional relationship.
She’s going to look after the kid.
I’m going to look after my heart.
