Heart in the Sunlight – Friday Fiction

Heart in the Sunlight
Peake
1976

Our familiar trope from the old days of clueless girl gets seduced by older wiser and more obnoxious guy. Noelle, the clueless protagonist, tags along with her bestie for a job in Norway at a hotel run by bestie’s brother Per. Of course when Per is introduced to Noelle, he proceeds to be a total jerk and insult women. He also then has the audacity to get his back up when she politely disagrees with his ridiculous judgment about how women are not trustworthy, money grubbing, etc. Evidently she should show him respect. First, he is her boss for the next few months and second, he is awesome and she needs to remember that in the future.
