The Infatuation

by Stredwick
I remembered Westin Taylor. Leila Arnold had come to work at Jack Winston Insurance Agency. She was a real beauty. Most of us young guys immediately fell in love with her. People asked if she had ever entered any beauty contests before. Most of us guys knew that Leila even if desirable was not attainable. Westin (Wes) didn't think so and he followed her everywhere. Once she left the office Wes was with her. She was Winston's personal assistant. Two months after she started working at the agency she went to help out in the Montego Bay branch. Wes was in consternation. Then we heard that she had found an English guy down there. By the time she returned three months later it was being widely rumored that she was going away to marry the English man. We all felt sorry for Wes. Three years after Leila went away, she returned to Jamaica. I met her on the Constant Spring Mall one Saturday afternoon. She told me that she had never encouraged Wes to be interested in her. I didn't tell her anything about him as I was no longer working with Winston. He had fired Wes six months after Leila went away as his production level fell off dramatically. The last I heard of him was that he was working as a chef in a hotel in Ocho Rios.
