Un Amour Plein De Richesse
and her best friend Victoria were two British girls who lived near
London. They were eighteen years old and had just finished high school.
They had studied tourism and they would soon start working in a fancy
hotel in France. It was their internship.
It was July first and
Madison had to get up early, which she really didn’t like. But she
didn’t have a choice because it would be a busy day. She and Victoria
had to take a taxi to Dover and where they would take the boat to
It was windy, but the weather was beautiful. It looked like the perfect day to start their new adventure.
Once they were on board, Madison and Victoria went to the restaurant to
have lunch. Victoria was really excited and hyper. Madison was usually
the hyper one, but she was still too tired to be active.
“Ah! We’re going to sunny France and you’ll finally meet the love of your life!” Victoria said the minute they sat down.
“Huh? What do you mean?”
“Well…you’ve always dated French guys and I’m 100% sure you’ll be dating a French guy in no time.”
Madison looked at her skeptically.
it’s true. Madison had had two boyfriends so far and they were both
French. But Victoria was just exaggerating. She didn’t know why she
hadn’t dated any British guys either. Every time she was looking for
someone to date she would end up with a French guy. And it’s not like
she couldn’t appreciate them and their handsome looks. Perhaps they were
more interesting than the British guys back in England. But no way she
would admit this to Victoria. She would never stop teasing her if she
After about ninety minutes
they had arrived in Calais. Their French adventure was about to begin!
But first they had to take another taxi, from Calais to Le Havre, where
the hotel was located.
They had finally arrived at the
hotel and it was a real sight. The hotel was a rather old building, but
still looked very pretty. It was built in a neoclassical style. It had a
very broad façade with in the middle of it a wide golden revolving
door. On each side of the door there were these enormous arched windows,
in the same golden colour as the big entrance door. It got
even better when they entered the hotel. The walls were white and there
was a marble floor. There was this long open hallway with a red carpet.
Flanking there were beautiful vintage oxford blue wing chairs and
lounge chairs. On each arched window there were oxford blue curtains
that matched the chairs. Along both sides of the hallway there were
believe her eyes “Woah! This hotel looks so glorious. I can’t believe
we’re allowed to do our internship in a place like this!”
was still staring at the entrance hall. She could’ve sworn there were
sparkles in her eyes. This place really was amazing. She kept staring
until Victoria woke her up from her daydream by tapping her on the
“Maddy! This girl behind the counter seems to calling us.”
saw a girl walking from behind the corner wave at them. She walked over
to the girls. She had long and beautiful wavy blonde hair. She looked
gorgeous and conveyed an aura of elegance and flair.
“Hello, you must be Victoria and Madison?” My name is Fayette. I will guide you two around the hotel.”
Fayette was 20 years old, but had been working in the hotel for several
years. She started working there part-time when she was just a student.
She really knew the place by heart. Fayette showed them all around the
hotel. And yes, the hotel was as big as it looked on the outside.
Madeline and Victoria just hoped they wouldn’t get lost too often during
their first weeks. Fayette showed them the dining hall and the kitchen
right next to it, which was very shiny and clean. Madeline could have
sworn she saw her own reflection in most of the fridges because they
were just that polished. At the end of the two hour tour they were
walking around in one of the top floors of the hotel. Then Fayette
turned around to face the girls.
now take you to the highest floor of the hotel. Only the staff is
allowed to go there.” Then she walked inside one of the staff rooms of
the long hallway. The room wasn’t as fancy as the rest of the hotel, but
it did look incredibly cosy. There were a lot of big couches and TVs
and a small kitchen in one of the corners of the room, it looked like
some small studio flat. On one of the couches there were sitting two
boys, who were the same age as Fayette. Not long after Fayette
introduced herself she had told Madison and Victoria that she was one
year older than them.
“Girls, I want to introduce you to my two favourite lazybones, Jacques and Damien.”. Jacques
had dark brown to black short hair which looked nice and a bit wavy,
although it was often hidden underneath his flat cap. Damien was a
little bit taller than Jacques and had chin-length amber blond hair and a
very nonchalant look. Both guys sported moustaches and small beards.
Jacques stood up first and walked straight to Madison.
“Echanté” He said with this very charming smile on his face. He seemed to be happy to meet her.
‘Normally he’s never that fast!’ Damien joked, pretending to be surprised.
Victoria, who was standing next to them saw how interested he was. She did a fake cough.
“Excuse me. I’m going to work here, too!” She joked.
situation quickly started to look awkward and it made him blushed a
bit. Then introduced himself to Victoria as well. Damien also introduced
himself to both girls.
is our rich boy.” Fayette said to Victoria and Madison. “He’s the son of
Mr. and Mrs. De La Rivière, the owners of this lovely hotel.”
“Hah! Yeah, right!” Madison had to cover her mouth to make sure she didn”t burst out laughing.
can show you my ID card if you want…” Jacques said and he still looked
very relaxed, even though he got just mocked. There was an awkward
silence for a few seconds.
Madison’s grin immediately faded and turned into a rather ashamed expression. “O-Oh! I’m so sorry! I thought you guys were jok-”
worry she always acts this dumb.” Victoria interrupted her best friend.
And that way Victoria gave her a taste of her own medicine.
anyway, I guess I really am the rich boy of the hotel.” Jacques
continued. “All I ever do is sit here and look pretty. Literally!” He
“You’ll soon find out these two guys are the biggest dorks of our hotel!” Fayette laughed.
all sat down and chatted for about half an hour, until their
conversation came to an end when Madame Victoire came in. Madame
Victoire was a rather plump woman who’s always dressed in flamboyant,
yet formal clothing. She has half-long dark red hair that she always
wears in a bun.
“Jacques, your parents asked me to get
you. They want to talk to you about something important and want you to
go to their office this instant.”
He sighed deeply “What are they going to complain about this time?”
He stood up and turned to the rest of the group “Well, I’m afraid I’ll have to leave. I hope to see you around soon!”
“Jacques! Wait for me!” Damien jumped off the sofa “I’ll come with you! I’m heading that way, too.”
and Damien had only left the staff room a few seconds ago and a smirk
already appeared on Damien’s face. He turned his gaze to Jacques.
“She’s cute, isn’t she?"
That question woke up Jacques from his daydream “I’m sorry. Who are you talking about?”
“Madison, you know, one of those two British girls.”
“O-oh…her…” he made sure he avoided eye contact with Damien. “She’s nice, I guess…”
Damien always assumed his friend was flirting with girls, even when he wasn’t.
so bad at lying! I’m going to tell Fayette later today!” he snickered
and then started running away to a different elevator.
“What?! No no no! Don’t! Damien! Get back here!”
But Damien kept running and kept laughing.
“Crap. If he’s going tell Fayette she might tell Madison.” Jacques thought to himself. And that meant there might be gossiping. And he didn’t like that thought at all.
first things first. Now he had to figure out why his parents wanted to
talk to him. And he was convinced that whatever reason they wanted to
talk to him, it couldn’t possibly be something positive.
A/N: First chapter is finally done! Can”t believe I spent one month
writing this, but I”ve been busy. Plus I”ve looked up several English
vocabulary just to check everything is correct! Sorry if the description about the hotel is kind of long, but I just
want everyone to be able to imagine what the setting looks like and how
pretty it is! I hope to upload the next part as soon as possible!!!
