Will you Always Be My Maybe, Mango?

Marcus looked up at the sign over Sasha’s new restaurant, Judy’s.

“I can’t believe you named this place after my mother!”

Sasha smiled. “The menu features the recipes she taught me as a kid, too,” Sasha said.

“She taught me everything and without her, I wouldn’t have become a chef or had a string of restaurants. I owe her so much.”

Marcus hugged her and said: “Thank you.”

Sasha laughed. “Without her, I wouldn’t have you, either. At last!”

Marcus smiled.

“How long will we spend here in New York?”

Sasha opened her bag, took out her phone, and looked at her calendar.

“Three months. Then, we’ll need to fly to London and Bristol. My team has almost finished negotiations on two more restaurants there.”

Marcus opened the door and they walked in.

“Sounds exciting! I get to see two new cities while you work. I’ll see if the band can book some UK gigs.”

Sasha nodded: “Great idea. I suspect a lot of my time will be spent on paperwork and organisation. I have to ensure the restaurants comply with the new Martyn’s Law.”

Marcus asked: “What’s that?”

Sasha explained: “It’s a new law coming into force soon to ensure restaurants like ours are prepared for the worst and can help prevent terrorist attacks wherever possible.

“It’s named after Martyn Hett, one of the 22 innocent victims of the 2017 Manchester Arena terrorist bombing.

“We’ll have to put a plan in place, give staff the right training, and ensure we have good communication if something does happen.”

Marcus nodded.

“You know, I do have an old buddy who works in UK music venues. He said he’s been working with Penarth Management for a few months and they’ve trained him in online compliance software called Mango. That helps them keep all their paperwork in the cloud.”

“Interesting!” Sasha said. “That could be perfect for implementing Martyn’s Law. And I love using mango in my recipes! It’s meant to be…

“We could access this software wherever we are in the world - London, Bristol, New York, or San Francisco. You’d better introduce me to your old buddy and Penarth Management.”

Marcus laughed.

“Anything for the girl next door…”

Sasha’s phone buzzed with a message. She looked at it and smiled.

“Another acceptance for our opening night!”

Marcus smiled and Sasha added: “Keanu says ‘hi’ to you, too!”
