Janie arrived in Myrtle Beach after graduating from high school in Reidsville, NC, where she had been self-exiled for the past three years arriving pregnant but not nearly as belligerent as her earlier years. She had been one spoiled brat. After a boring year waitressing at Captain John’s on Ocean Blvd; her Robert Redford walked into the restaurant sweeping her completely off her feet. Not only was he good looking; he was driving a white 325i BMW convertible. Over the next few months they began dating and Jerry insisted she take the real estate course and become licensed. She returned home for a visit to eastern NC after a four year absence being welcomed with open arms by her family; a welcome she hadn’t dared to dream was possible. She lost her father during real estate school but Jerry and her Myrtle Beach family supported her during the ordeal. Intercoastal Properties became a reality in late October and Janie was one of the four equal shareholders. A dream she never could have believed possible; especially the way it did. Jerry, the love of her life, Walter, and Holly were the other shareholders. Mother and Father Lambert had given them millions of dollars of property listings to get the new corporation off the ground. On a trip to Key West over the Thanksgiving holidays, Jerry proposed and they planned to marry the following March. Jerry’s Sister Anna and girlfriend, Tiffany made every attempt to stop the wedding. In early March Anna called Janie saying they needed to meet before the wedding plans went any further. Janie met them at a restaurant in Southside being confronted with every detail about Janie’s past including the unwanted pregnancy saying if Janie didn’t put a halt to the wedding she would gave Mother and Father Lambert the file. Anna, with Tiffany smiling broadly, pointed her finger at Janie saying; “I think it’s time for you to get your “Country Ass out of town!”
