"Here is your coffee, " I heard Chelsea and looked up as she kept the cup of coffee down on my desk with a smile on her face.

"Dark and with less sugar, as you like it, " she added and that made me pick the cup up as I inhaled the aroma of the coffee, and had a sip. "Amazing, " I said as I nodded and gave her a smile. "Thank you, " I replied and she nodded keeping down a file. "I will take the leave, Sir, " she smiled and put stress on the last word which made me chuckle and then she walked out of my cabin.

It has been a lot easier to work in the office, since the day, I resolved everything out with Chelsea. Turns out she has grown to a really mature and warm person. Well, everyone learns from their mistake. But seriously, I had never imagined that a person like her could change and turn up to be such a mature and kind person. I have seen her many times helping, caring for others. The woman has seriously changed and from the past weeks, I have grown more comfortable to her and her ways, letting her bring lunch and even my coffee.

Even though I had obviously denied her from doing that, still she insisted that she liked keeping herself busy.

It's been a month since we went to Vancouver and since then the only thing I know is work. The last time I went to my lab was three weeks ago. I get so tired, that I sleep in my penthouse and then hurry back to work. All these weeks, I have been travelling a lot. Not for fun or vacation ofcourse, Hell, I don't even get time to go to the balcony of every hotel to have a view of the town or city or wherever I was. My dream was tumbling down before my very own eyes and there was no sign of Amelia, returning back any soon.

The last time, I talked to her, I got to know that, dad hired a physiotherapist for mom and they have been busy looking after her health. So, there is probably no possibility of Amelia returning back any soon because mom was her life. Even though she never confessed it before anyone, still she would go to the end of the world for mom. Amelia was the exact replica of my father.

But I felt drowning. Even though I was busy, still I couldn't grow the interest in whatever I was doing. It was like the daily routine of my life. Wake up early in the morning, get ready, eat, work, get back home, sleep. I had no fun or enthusiasm on whatev

o be pounding vigorously as I took in who she was.

"Miss Veronica Sullivan, all the way from Romania. Owner of XIX Real Estate and a major shareholder of Sullivan Construction Company, " I heard Noah from my side.

She stepped down from the chopper and looked over and it was when she noticed us and I watched as she adjusted her white suit as she made her way toward us. Her long brown hair flowing with the air as she stood right before me. I heard a gasp from my right side and instantly knew that Chelsea recognized the face.

Veronica was right before me as she got rid of her sunglasses and looked right into my eyes.

"I recognise this face, " she said as she angled her face to the side and faced Chelsea. The same voice that I had been dying to hear. I recognised her voice right there. It was indeed Veronica. Even if my eyes lied to me, my ears didn't.

She was real, for real, right before me, some inches away. My fingers itched to touch her face and conclude if she weren't a dream. The same woman who had my dreams invaded with her smile. For fourteen years, I dreaded to meet her, to see her again.

"So, we meet again. Mr. Knights, " she looked back at me. Her deep brown eyes, that same deep brown eyes, I wished to see again.

With her return, I felt the pain that I felt fourteen years returning back, the more I stared at her.

"Ace, " she whispered softly.

I closed my eyes for a split second before opening them and looking into her eyes and raised my hand for a handshake "Welcome to Knights corp, Ms. Sullivan."
