Today was the first day Matt's shop was actually open. She'd been working the last few months to get everything ready and it finally paid off. The place wasn't fancy and she did have to admit that it looked a bit out of place among the clothing shops and little boutique sort of places, but then again, that was always how Matt's life had been. While other little girls had been learning how to apply make-up, Matt had been getting grease and motor oil smudged on her face as she worked on cars with her Dad.
She stepped outside and leaned against the stucco wall of the building. She couldn't help smiling. She was in a good mood and seeing a blue sky with a shining sun made it even better. Her earrings jingled slightly in her ears as she turned her head. Typically she wasn't one to wear anything that was too girly. She didn't wear make-up...ever. She'd only worn it twice in her life, both times she was talked into it for a dance or something. She very rarely wore dresses. Somehow skirts and working on cars didn't seem to go together very well. Plus, when setting up or fixing computers she often found herself sitting on the floor, especially when she had to take something apart so skirts didn't go well with that either. As a general rule she didn't wear lace or ruffles. Those fell into the same category as the make-up. The only thing remotely girly that she actually wore was some jewelry. It wasn't that she particularly cared for jewelry or anything, but it seemed that she was less likely to be called a boy while wearing it. She would have thought her well developed breasts would have answered the whole gender question, but it didn't.
With a smile on her face she greeted the day and new acquaintances that would inevitably come.
