Jodie liked her apartment. She had a beautiful view to the south. A nearby tree was home to two squirrels. She liked to watch them. So did her cat. Mrs. Neely owned the apartment building. She was an old lady who spoke with a thick Norwegian accent.

Jodie and Mrs. Neely got along very well. Mrs. Neely said that Jodie reminded her of her daughter, who had died in a car crash years ago. Mrs. Neely was a widow. She kept busy by volunteering at the local library and senior center. An excellent baker, she often brought bread and pastries to Jodie.

"You're trying to make me fat," laughed Jodie one day. "How will I ever find a boyfriend?"

"I still can't believe that Prince Charming hasn't found you," said Mrs. Neely. "Maybe you're just too pretty and too smart for the young men around here."

Jodie was going to graduate school at night. She had a day job as a teacher's assistant in the fourth grade. She loved teaching kids. The principal had already told her that a full-time teaching job was hers after she got her master's degree.

"Aren't there any nice boys in your graduate classes, Jodie?" Mrs. Neely asked.

"There are some," said Jodie. "But they're either married, or have a girlfriend, or are too focused on getting their degree. And don't forget, I have to concentrate on graduating, so I really shouldn't be dating anyway."

"Well, that's just a shame," said Mrs. Neely. "You're too pretty to be alone. But don't worry. You keep doing your homework, and I'll be on the lookout for you." She winked at Jodie. Jodie smiled. She loved Mrs. Neely.

Mrs. Neely died not long after that conversation. She had a stroke while mixing some batter for cookies. An ambulance took her to the hospital, where she died a day later.

Her son Ned was Mrs. Neely's sole heir. Ned had been married and divorced three times. None of his wives had anything nice to say about him. Ned didn't care. He was looking for Wife Number Four.

Ned introduced himself to Jodie right after Mrs. Neely's funeral on Saturday. He knew about Jodie because Mrs. Neely had told him about her. Ned said he was afraid that he might have to double her rent. Also, no pets were allowed in the building. "You'll have to take your cat to the pound," he said.

"In that case," she said, "I'm moving out."

"I was joking, of course. You're very pretty," said Ned.

"Thank you," said Jodie.

"Come to dinner with me at Chez Maison tonight and we can discuss your apartment and your cat." Ned had an air of confidence that Jodie found mildly attractive.

"That might be nice," she found herself saying. Ned told her he would pick her up at 8 and left. Jodie wondered if she was doing the right thing. She didn't even know this guy. Oh well, she thought, it would be nice to eat at a fancy restaurant for a change.

She picked up some cat food on her way home.

Người đàn ông giàu có mời cô sinh viên nghèo đi ăn tối

Jodie thích căn hộ của cô. Cô có hướng nhìn đẹp về phía nam. Cây gần nhà là nơi trú ngụ của hai con sóc. Cô thích ngắm chúng. Con mèo của cô cũng thế. Bà Neely là chủ toà nhà. Bà là một bà già nói giọng Na Uy đặc sệt.

Jodie và bà Neely rất thân nhau. Bà Neely nói Jodie làm bà nhớ đến con gái của bà, đã bị đụng xe chết nhiều năm trước đây. Bà Neely là bà goá. Bà tự nguyện làm ở thu viện địa phương và trung tâm người cao tuổi để bận rộn. Là một người làm bánh tuyệt vời, bà thường mang bánh mì và bánh nướng cho Jodie.

"Bà đang cố làm con béo," một ngày kia Jodie cười. "Làm thế nào con có bạn trai được?"

"Bà không thể tin rằng chàng hoàng tử quyến rũ chưa tìm ra con," Bà Neely nói. "Có thể con quá đẹp và quá thông minh cho những chàng trai trẻ quanh đây."

Jodie sẽ tốt nghiệp trường ban đêm. Ban ngày cô làm trợ giảng cho lớp bốn. Cô thích dạy trẻ con. Hiệu trưởng đã nói với cô một công việc dạy học toàn thời gian sẽ là của cô sau khi cô tốt nghiệp cao học.

"Không có chàng trai nào dễ thương trong lớp của con à, Jodie?" Bà Neely hỏi.

"Có vài người," Jodie nói. "Nhưng họ hoặc là đã có gia đình, hoặc có bạn gái, hoặc lo tập trung lo bằng cấp. Và đừng quên, con cũng phải lo tốt nghiệp, nên dù sao con thật sự không nên hẹn hò."

"Này, đó chỉ là xấu hổ," bà Neely nói. "Con quá đẹp để ở một mình. Nhưng đừng lo. Con cứ làm bài tập của con, và ta sẽ lo tìm kiếm cho con." Bà nháy mắt với Jodie. Jodie cười. Cô yêu bà Neely quá.

Bà Neeely chết không lâu sau buổi nói chuyện đó. Bà bị đột quỵ khi đang trộn bột làm bánh. Chiếc xe cứu thương chở bà đến bệnh viện, nơi hôm sau bà chết.

Con trai Ned của Bà Neely là người thừa kế duy nhất. Ned đã cưới vợ và ly dị ba lần. KHông có cô vợ nào có điều gì tốt để nói về anh ấy. Ned chẳng quan tâm. Anh đang tìm cô vợ thứ tư.

Ned tự giới thiệu với Jodie sau lễ tang của Bà Neely vào thứ bảy. Anh biết Jodie vì bà Neely có nói với anh về cô ấy. Ned nói anh e rằng phải tăng tiền nhà lên gấp đôi. Và, không được phép nuôi thú vật trong nhà. "Cô phải đem mèo cô đi gủi nhà nuôi thú," anh nói.

"Trong trường hợp đó," cô nói, "Tôi dọn đi."

"Anh đùa thôi, dĩ nhiên rồi. Em đẹp lắm," Ned nói.

"Cảm ơn anh," Jodie nói.

"Đi ăn với anh ở nhà hàng Chez Maison tối nay và chúng ta sẽ nói về căn hộ của em và con mèo của em." Ned có vẻ tự tin mà Jodie cảm thấy thoáng thu hút.

"Chắc là sẽ được," cô nghe thấy mình nói Ned bảo cô anh sẽ đón cô lúc 8 giờ và bỏ đi. Jodie tự hỏi không biết mình có làm đúng không. Cô còn không biết anh chàng này. Oh, cô nghĩ, thay đổi ăn ở nhà hàng ưa thích cũng vui.

Cô mua vài gói thúc ăn cho mèo khi trên đường về nhà.

Jodie rất thích căn hộ của mình. Cảnh quan ở hướng nam thật đẹp. Có một cái cây ở gần đó là tổ ấm của hai con sóc. Cô ưa thích việc quan sát chúng. Con mèo của cô cũng thế. Bà Neely là chủ của khu chung cư này. Đó là một bà cụ già nói giọng Na-Uy đặc sệt.

Jodie và bà Neely rất hoà hợp với nhau. Bà Neely nói Jodie làm cho bà nhớ lại đứa con gái của mình, là người đã chết trong một vụ đụng xe nhiều năm trước đây. Bà Neely là một goá phụ. Bà luôn bận rộn với việc là tình nguyện viên tại một thư viện địa phương và trung tâm dưỡng lão. Là một người làm bánh tuyệt vời, bà thường mang bánh mì và bánh ngọt đến cho Jodie.

"Bà đang vỗ béo con đó," một ngày nọ Jodie bật cười. "Con sẽ kiếm bồ bằng cách nào đây hả bà?"

"Bà vẫn không thể tin được là Chàng Hoàng tử Quyến rũ lại không tìm thấy con," Bà Neely nói. Có lẽ con quá đẹp và quá thông minh đối với những chàng trai trẻ ở quanh đây."

Jodie sắp tốt nghiệp trường học ban đêm. Công việc ban ngày của cô là làm trợ giảng cho lớp bốn. Cô rất thích việc dạy học cho lũ trẻ con. Hiệu trưởng đã nói với cô về việc giảng dạy toàn thời gian sau khi cô có bằng thạc sĩ.

"Không có chàng trai dễ thương nào trong lớp tốt nghiệp của con sao Jodie?" Bà Neely hỏi.

"Dạ có một vài người," Jodie nói. Nhưng họ hoặc sắp kết hôn, hoặc có bạn gái, hoặc chú tâm vào việc lấy cho được bằng cấp. Và bà cũng nhớ rồi đó, con phải tập trung cho việc tốt nghiệp, vì thế, dù thế nào đi nữa con thật sự không nên hẹn hò."

"Ờ, đó là một điều đáng tiếc," Bà Neely nói. "Con quá xinh đẹp để phải cô đơn một mình. Nhưng con đừng lo. Con cứ làm bài tập của con, và ta sẽ canh chừng con cẩn mật." Bà nháy mắt với Jodie. Jodie mĩm cười. Cô rất quý mến bà Neely.

Bà Neely mất không lâu sau cuộc trò chuyện đó. Bà bị đột quỵ trong lúc đang nhào một ít bột cho món bánh bít-quy. Xe cấp cứu đưa bà đến bệnh viện, là nơi bà mất vào ngày hôm sau.

Ned, con trai bà Neely là người thừa kế độc nhất. Ned đã lập gia đình và li dỵ ba lần. Không một ai trong các người vợ có điều gì đó tốt đẹp để nói về anh ta. Ned không hề quan tâm. Anh ta đang tìm người vợ thứ tư.

Ned tự giới thiệu về mình với Jodie ngay sau lễ tang của bà Neely hôm Thứ Bảy. Anh ta biết Jodie vì bà Neely đã kể cho anh ta nghe về cô. Ned bảo anh ta e rằng anh ta sẽ phải tăng gấp đôi tiền thuê nhà của cô. Ngoài ra, không được phép nuôi thú cưng ở chung cư. "Cô phải mang con mèo đến nhà nuôi thú thôi," anh ta nói.

"Trong trường hợp đó," cô nói, "Tôi sẽ chuyển nhà."

"Anh đùa đấy mà, dĩ nhiên rồi. Em thật là đẹp ," Ned nói.

"Cám ơn anh," Jodie nói.

"Dùng cơm tối với anh ở Chaz Maison tối nay nhé và chúng ta có thể thảo luận về căn hộ và con mèo của em. Ned có một dáng vẻ tin cậy đến nỗi Jodie nhận thấy một sự hấp dẫn nhẹ nhàng.

"Điều đó thật tuyệt," cô nhận thấy mình đang nói. Ned bảo cô là anh sẽ đón cô vào lúc 8 giờ tối và đi khỏi. Jodie tự hỏi cô đang làm một việc đúng đắn hay không. Thậm chí cô còn chưa biết anh chàng này nữa. Ồ, được rồi, sẽ rất dễ chịu khi ăn ở một nhà hàng ưng ý cho một sự thay đổi.

Cô mua một ít thức ăn cho mèo trên đường về nhà.
