Above is an image of what Caden wore to her presentation. Happy reading!

Caden

I walked into the company's building confidently as I hurried up to my office. Finally, I decided to go with the leopard skin leggings, a white singlet which was tucked in, a cream coloured coat, a small pendant necklace, a pair of stud earrings and a pair of black stilletoes. It hasn't been up to thirty minutes that I've been wearing these heels but I feel like my legs are killing me.

" Caden where the hell have you been? " Mia asked me as soon as the elevator's door opened and I got out.

" Why...what's wrong? Tell me nothing is wrong. " I asked her as I walked into our new office and kept my handbag and other stuff on the table.

" Oh nothing really except for the fact that the presentation is going to start in about thirty minutes time..."

" What? I...I thought you said Lisa told you that it would start at approximately nine thirty. " I asked her worriedly. She bit her lower lip.

" Um...apparently I...misheard actually...it's... eight thirty..."

" Oh Mia! Seriously!?" I exclaimed at her as we walked out of the office together.

" I'm sorry, I'm sorry, okay? You should know better than to come to work early..."

" Mia!" I called her frustratedly as I finally stopped almost close to the washroom.

" Fine I'm sorry. I'm surprise Blayze didn't say anything to you..."

" How would he when we don't talk like that!?" Oops!

Mia stared at me with wide eyes.

" What I meant is that...how would he when I...I didn't ask him anything? He probably didn't know that I actually don't know the real time. " I changed the whole explanation and I knew she bought it when she nodded.

" Okay, okay, the important thing is...are you ready? Mia asked me. I just stared at her blankly.

I'm I really hundred percent ready to face the entire board of directors and Blayze?

" I hope you have a good answer for that question? " I suddenly heard Blayze voice.

Really? Blayze voice in my head!? What's next? Him really standing in front of me.

" Get out of my head Blayze. " I said out aloud before taking a look back at Mia. Mia's eyes was on something behind me...what is she looking at?

" Mia..."

" Caden I...think that voice in not in your head. " What, she can hear it too...wait a minute...

I immediately turned only to meet Blayze staring right back at me in his usual handsome posture...really Caden!? Really!? What I mean is that he stood with his hands in his trouser pockets.

" I told you not to be late." He said in a calm manner.

"Well...technically I'm not late. We still have about..." I took a look at my wristwatch.

"...twenty minutes before

voice. He was the last person I expected that sentence from, I mean...he told me that I would do nicely today and now...he's deducing me.

" Every-thing...from the beginning...till the end...Caden...what do you think this is? What do you think the project you were handed over to is? Did you think that it was a child game...you were asked to design furnitures that would be displayed for sale at a new mall...what impression do you really think people will have when the walk into a new mall in which funny looking furnites are displayed in...none of those would sell even for a dime...Did you do your research at all? Did you try to find out the likes and dislikes of the tourists and indigenes of that country? Did you try to match colours at all or you just settled with any colour you feel like.......those colours are too dull and none of these people here are bold enough to tell you that and do you know why......because you are my wife...they are afraid to upset the boss's wife and by so doing, they're making a fool out of you. Caden my company is not some child's playground...either you show me some serious work or you...quit."

I swallowed hard the tears that were slowly threatening to burst out...Why would Blayze talk to me this way in front of everyone? Why would he embarrass me so much?

" This meeting... is over." Blayze declared before everyone stood up, packed up their stuff and began to leave one after the other.

"Caden..." Mia started in a low tone as she came closer to me.

I could feel the tears gather my eyes, my visions. My heart felt so heavy and pained. I...I can't stay here any longer...No I can't!

I quickly walked out of the room ignoring Mia's call for me to wait.
