Fourteen years.

Fourteen years, I couldn't stop thinking about her. I knew I was a stupid person but still with the only picture I had of her from the prom nights, I would simply stare at it and keep it back in between the pages of a book.

I used to think what she meant she told me that what happened in the school was because of her and what made her leave, without even saying goodbye.

But as life went on, I kept in the back of my mind, refusing to think about her but I knew she was there. Time went on, and I was growing acquainted with whatever I was and wherever I was, I had finally stopped thinking about her.

But it looks things never really goes the way, you always want it to.

So here she was, roaming around my office cabin, looking at every picture and certificates, on the wall and then to my bookshelf. She picked out a valuation book and opened it to read it as I sat behind my desk watching her still not believing she was actually standing before me.

"Can I get you something?" Chelsea asked and Veronica looked back at her giving her a smile.

That same smile that she used to have on her face back on the college. Smile, which didn't reach her eyes.

"Yeah, a cup of coffee, please?"

"Sure, " Chelsea got off from the chair and made her way out of the cabin leaving Veronica and me alone in the room.

"So!" I heard her and looked her way as she closed the book and keep it back where it was "How have you been all these days?" she asked and then looked back towards me as she walked before my desk and took a seat before me.

"I am still not aware of the reason of your visit, Ms. Sullivan, " I said as I kept my hand on the table and clasped my fingers together. She stared at me and then narrowed her eyes for a second before smiling.

"Ms. Sullivan?" she said softly more to herself.

"Well, I like your professional

" I told her and she stared at me.

"Join me for a dinner, " I heard her.

I stared at for sometime and then looked back at Chelsea with whom I had plans for dinner. She seemed to understand this as she nodded letting me know that it was alright. But that didn't stop me "Sorry Ms. Sullivan, I am already-"

"I didn't ask, Mr. Knights, " Veronica cut me off in the middle. She was no longer smiling. She had this cold tone that somehow indicated she wouldn't listen to any kind of nonsense.

"I only talk business. I expect you to understand this and I expect you to show up in the details, provided by my P.A. Alright?" she asked and it was when she looked forward not even hearing my answer as she walked towards the door, perhaps to her penthouse.

"Let me show you the way-"

Veronica narrowed her eyes at Chelsea as she looked at her, clearly intimidating her. "This is my building remember? I know the way, " she said and before Chelsea could speak up, Veronica chose to leave.

A sigh escaped Chelsea's mouth as she looked back at me.

"She is so intimidating. Just the way she was, " she said as she exhaled out and turned to leave when my phone buzzed indicating a text message.

Eight in the evening.

My penthouse.
