It was the day. Finally, the day came and majority of votes from the board of directors were on me. The other candidate was the son of one of the directors, and even though he lost, he said he was happy with everyone's decision and backed off with positivity as I finally took over my father's company as the new CEO of The Knights corp.

I had never felt such thing that I was feeling when I saw my father sitting their in the boardroom clapping and looking happy when I got the vote results. He seemed way too happy comparing the day when I was graduated or the day I got the national award for my pollution invention.

My sister stood at the corner of the room with my mom on her wheelchair as they clapped for me. The moment was supposed to be the happiest moment of my life but somehow I felt empty and burdened. I was taking on a responsibility for which I was not ready nor I had any wish to. But only for my family...

The celebration party was set in a banquet hall and I watched as my father walked around talking to his associates seeming utmost happy. This was the first time, his emotions were reflecting on his face. The last time, I saw this was when I left home for London. He was sad but he let me go.

I sighed, as I turned around and walked to my table and sat down, gulping down a glass of water, too exhausted. I was fine being in my lab as I experimented through different chemicals. It was what I liked. But this, isn't what I want.

The main problem is I'm not really sure if I could stand up to my father's desire. I don't really believe I could take care of Knights Corp. Dang it! How did I even let myself be in this situation?

"Ace..." immediately I got of my seat as I heard my father calling for me. He stood there with some people and I mentally scoffed at the situation thinking that he would again make me meet some of his business associates. I was done for the day. This was probably the twentieth one and all I wanted was to get back home and sleep.

"There's my boy, " he smiled as he extended his hand towards me and I smiled walking to them.

, are you alright?" I heard a woman and assumed it to be her mother. I helped Chelsea stand up and she adjusted her dress and looked up at me. My height towering her petite form as I pursued my lips and looked at my impressed father. Just great!

"Yes, Ace here, saved me, " Chelsea breathed out and it was when I saw my sister, Amelia Coming our direction. "Get me out of here, " I mouthed her when she looked at me and immediately she nodded as she held her phone and ran towards me.

"Uh brother, there is an important call for you, " she said and handed me her phone. I took it the chance to get out as I took her phone and feigned as if there was someone in the call and walked out.

"Uh Ace!" I heard Chelsea calling for me but I walked out, pretending that I didn't hear her voice. Thankfully, no one followed me out and immediately, I called the guard and handed Amelia's phone to him and asked him to give it back to her. As he walked towards, the banquet hall, I took it the chance to run away and I dashed out of the building having enough of the day.

I was tired and most importantly, annoyed to meet someone whom I never really wanted to see again. But now, all thanks to my father, I have to see her just everyday and tolerate her. Just why is my life turning out to be like this? Nothing really seems to be going like the way I had planned and that was what annoyed me the most.
