Three days later........

The party was getting closer. The anticipation to meet this "secret admirer" is killing me. I'm excited yet nervous because I don't know who it is or how they'll react when they see me. I just hope he's a decent guy and doesn't play with anyone's emotions. I still have the bad feeling about it though. I feel like this whole thing is fake but the gifts are real and so are the text messages so I don't know what to think.

I got ready for school and called dad.

"Morning, dad."

"Morning, princess. Did you sleep well?"

"Yeah. What about you?"

"I slept well. Getting ready to eat breakfast?"

"Yeah, I'm going to the kitchen now. I've been making my own breakfast while you've been gone."

"You're doing pretty well without me."

"That's not true. It gets lonely not having you here but talking to you on Skype helps a lot."

"I miss you, too. When I come back, let's go out to eat together."

"Sure. That sounds awesome dad."


"So, what's new with Jose's training?"

"We're doing dodging today and then an eight-mile jog around town."

"Stay safe for me, okay dad?"

"I will, princess. I made sure some security follows us closely whenever we go out to jog."

"Okay, good."

"See you later."

"Bye, dad."

After talking with dad, I went downstairs to the kitchen and made myself some breakfast. Then I ate breakfast and grabbed my bag leaving the house.


I arrived at school just in the nick of time when I saw Carmen and Jamie at the entrance grinning from ear to ear. Time for tight hugs. They hugged me tightly and I hugged them back.

"Riley, are you ready for the party?" They asked.

I smiled, mischievously, "Yeah, I'm all set. I know exactly what I'm going to wear but I'm not going to tell you."

"Uh, you're such a tease. Why can't you just tell us?"

"If I tell you, it will spoil the surprise."


I went to my locker and opened it. I grabbed my books and locked my locker. As I got my books, Carmen, Jamie and I went to class. Lately, the secret admirer hasn't texted me or sent me anything. Why do I feel like there's a surprise waiting for me? And why do I have this bad feeling that gets worse and worse each time? Am I being played?


While we were eating, my phone rang and it was my dad. I answered it.

"Hey, dad."

"Hi princess. I love the pictures from the photoshoot. You look gorgeous just like your mom."

"Thanks, dad."

"You're welcome, princess. Are you at school?."

"Yeah, why?"

"I'm going to need you to go to the gym for me."

"Why? Want me to check on Marcus?"

"No, Victor is going to go over there because he wants to have a meeting with me but I'm in Brazil so I need you to fill in for me. Okay?"

"Sure. Should I go there after school?"

"Yeah. Thanks, princess."

"Anything for you, dad."

After talking to dad, Carmen and Jamie had a look of confusion gracing their faces. What do they want? I bet they want to know who I was talking to.

"Guys, if you wanted to know who I was talking to. You could ask." I said pointing out the obvious.

"Who were you talking to?" They asked curious.

"My dad."

"Oh, do you have any plans after school? Jamie and I were thinking we could go to the amusement park today?"

"Sorry, I can't. I have to go to my dad's gym for a business meeting."

"We could go the day after the party?" Carmen suggested with a hopeful smile.

"Sounds like a plan."

"Alright, see you tomorrow."

~After School~

Without wasting time, I rushed over to my car throwing my bag in the back. Pulling out, I waved goodbye to them. Time to go home and great ready for dad's business meeting at the gym today.


I got out of the car and went inside, heading to my room. There, I picked out an outfit for my dad's meeting today at the gym. Then I went to the bathroom and got in the shower. As I got in, I did my business.

Thirty minutes later........

I got out and dried myself off. Then I went to my room, changing into the outfit that

I picked out. It was a black pencil skirt, white button-up shirt, black blazer with black heels. I have to look professional when it comes to my dad's business. After getting ready, I went downstairs and grabbed my jacket. Then I went outside and locked the doors, leaving the house.

~West Dome Gym~

Walking in, I saw Victor's car parked in front of the place along two SUV's behind it. Perks of being a businessman. Victor is one of my dad's business partners and old friend but he has a knack for taking more than he needs to.

"Hey, Marcus."

"Hey, Ry. What's up? And what's with the professional look?"

"Well, Dad has a business meeting so I'm filling in for him."

"Oh, Victor is in the office."


"You're welcome. Good luck."


I went to Dad's office and saw Victor sitting in front of the desk. So, I sat in dad's chair behind the desk and looked at Victor; his two guards standing behind.

"Hello, Riley."

"Hello, Victor. How's life?"

"Life is great. How's your life?"

"Good. Let's get down to business, shall we?"

"How's daddy? We shall."

"Dad's great."

"Where is he?"

"In Brazil, so I'm filling in for him."

"Okay. So, how's the gym doing?" He asked looking at me calmly.

"The gym is doing well. The stock has been steady lately." I answered confidently. I don't want to sound cocky, but my dad's gym is the number one gym here in California.

"That's great. Well, I have a deal that Matt would be interested in." He rubbed his hands together. I knew that gesture anywhere. I knew exactly what it meant.

"What's the deal?" I asked intrigued.

"Muscle&Fitness magazine wants to partner with this gym and do an interview with your dad." He revealed. That's cool.

"Alright, I'll let him know. How's your business going?"

"It's going well but it needs a little push so I came here to see if your dad wants to partner with me and create a franchise around the world. Together we can make it big." There was a light in his eyes. It was full of hope. That's the look dad gives me whenever I achieve something.

"This is a good opportunity but my dad's gym is already a franchise. He has gyms all over the world. To add your business in the mix would be risky but I'll see what he says. For now, your business needs to make your memberships affordable for the customers." I explained kindly turning him down.

"Good to know. I must say Riley, your father has turned you into a great business woman." His eyes were slightly dark as he complimented me.

"Thanks. I learned from the best." I gave him a small smile.

"Well, I must go. Pleasure doing business with you. I hope we can collaborate again in the future." He said rising from his seat and holding his hand out for me to shake it.

"Definitely. Good luck with your business and have a wonderful evening." I shook his hand gladly.

"The same goes for you. Tell your father that I said hi."

"I will."

Victor left and I stayed in the office. I called dad and waited for him to answer. He answered.

"Hey, princess. How was the meeting?"

"The meeting went well. Victor wants to partner with and so does Muscle&Fitness magazine. Muscle&Fitness wants to interview you about the gym. I even gave Victor some business advice."

"That's my girl. Thanks for filling in for me. You can go back home now."

"That's exactly what I'm going to do."


Finally, I arrived home and parked in the garage. Then I grabbed my bag and turned off the engine. I went inside and locked the doors. As I got inside, I went upstairs to my room and got changed into my nights. Then I laid on my bed until sleep got me.
