Sachie was about to go to her car that morning when she noticed Kaname standing on the side of his car, in their front gate. He waved at her.

With a curious look on her face, she walked towards him and opened the gate.

"Hey, good morning, " she said with her usual voice.

"Good morning Sachie, I have come to pick you up." He said in his usual voice, too. He gave her a brief head-to-toe look and nodded in appreciation of her attire.

She put on the office uniform which was a blue blouse and skirt, with a gray blazer. The skirt fell just an inch above her knees and it perfectly suited her figure. She was wearing a 2-inch closed black shoes and have her hair in a simple ponytail at the back. Light make-up with a reddish lip tint and some eyeshadow. Her overall appearance exudes femininity and elegance.

He liked it.

She pretended not to notice him staring at her.

"Why are you here? I thought you would be in a 2-day business trip?" She said with a lifted brow.

"Supposedly, but the business trip was re-scheduled next week. So I came here as planned." He explained, and opened the door to where he was just leaning. "Get in, so we can go to work."

She hesitated for a moment, but then decided to go with him.

They were silent the whole time with Kaname humming a song from the radio while Sachie busied herself with her phone.

Even though she promised herself that she would start moving on today, being with him is still a bit uncomfortable.

This is good training, Sachie. Once you get used to him as your husband's friend, then everything else will follow. Just take one step at a time.

She inhaled and exhaled deeply, clearing her mind from other unnecessary thoughts.

Kaname glanced at her through the mirror. She was obviously avoiding him. But it's all for the better. If she would distance himself from him, then he would not mind to go with her plan. He has always been good at going with the flow.

They reached the parking of their building afterwards and Sachie was out of the car before he can open the door for her. He pretended not to notice how she moved faster than her usual pace, in a hurry not to make him act gallant towards her.

When they reached the elevator, there were other employees as well so they didn't say any single word to each other. At the 11th floor, Sachie went out without even a glance at him. Deep within himself, Kaname felt irritated by her cold behavior towards him.

When he arrived at his office, Yoshida was already dutifully waiting for him.

"Good morning, Sir Hill, " Yoshida immediately stood beside the elevator when he saw the lights on it stopped at 11th floor. Kaname just nodded at

ffices of the hotel and restaurant sector. From the second to the fifth floors are the hotel rooms for rent, and the whole first floor are different restaurants.

The restaurants were divided into different ones depending on the function. Among one of the functions would be the cafeteria that only caters for the employees working from the sixth floor and above.

He gave her a fake smile, obviously understanding her plan to avoid eating with him inside his office.

"Well, I seem to ordered too much food for myself and I thought it would be such a waste to throw them away. So, would you care to eat these with me, Miss Yamamoto?" He then squinted his eyes, seeing that the people on line before her do not have the same office uniform with her. "It seems like your co-workers who are supposed to eat with you decided to stand you up."

She blushed a little at being caught lying red-handed.

She then felt that some eyes have started to stare at them. Who wouldn't? She is talking with the most important person in this building. With a defeated sigh, she walked towards where the food trays are arranged and returned her food tray there.

Kaname followed her, still holding the lunchboxes on his hand. A winning smile was on his lips.

"Where to, Sir Hill?" she asked afterwards.

"We can eat here, since it would be a waste of time to go back to the 13th floor, right?"

With Kaname leading the way, she tried to look nonchalant with all the stares they were getting. Kaname found an empty spot on the corner with two seats and placed the lunchboxes on the table. He then motioned for her to sit on the opposite chair.

As soon as they were seated, Kaname leaned on the table and looked at her closely.

"Now Miss Yamamoto, why do you have to avoid me like that?"
