Seven fifty-five, in the evening

My finger trembled slightly, as I kept it on the phone reading the message. I wanted to throw the phone away and announce, I didn't get the message. I had no wish to meet Veronica and I had no idea why.

Her penthouse was just on the top of the building of the same building. It would take only three minutes, to reach her floor, still I looked at the watch on my desk as I stood up holding my suit on my hand.

She said she only talks business. Well then!

Eight, in the evening

Pursing my lips, I pressed her doorbell and soon after a second as if she was already standing behind the door, it opened and there she was. With a smile on her face as she opened the door wide open for me to enter.

The penthouse was a modern duplex one.

The penthouse had retrofitted glass ceiling in the living room with water flowing over it. The room was large and spacious with all the furniture and things kept neatly and the black wooden floor complimented the whole interior. The brick wall had some paintings hung and moreover, there was a slow music playing somewhere which made the penthouse, worth living.

"Not really a punctual person, are you?" I heard her speak and turn around to find her closing the door as she crossed her arms across over her chest.

She had changed into a beige coloured sweater and loose pant and tied her hair into a bun, sans of makeup as she smiled at me and guided me to her living room on a couch.

"Coffee?" she offered and I nodded.

I looked at the fireplace and thankfully it generated enough heat to seat without my suit on. It was already late November in New York and it was freezing outside, but no snowfall.

Minutes later, a cup was before and I took it gratefully as I held the cup between my hands, liking the warmth.

"Ace, " I heard her speak which made me look up at her.

"How have you been?" she asked and that made me sip from my cup as I nodded.

"Good. I thought we are here to talk about business, Ms. Sullivan" I said and watched as she furrowed her eyebrows, closing her eyes. "It's also called catching up, " she clarified and even though I wanted to scoff at her, I refrained myself from doing such act as I kept the cup down on the coffee table and looked up at her.

She was sitting right before me on her couch with her legs up, comfortable, red sparkly toenails and an anklet.

"I already have talked to my dad. He said he will be assisting you with your investment in our company, " I said changing the topic as she angled her head to a side, with challenging eyes as she took a sip from cup the whole while staring at me.

"Why he? Why can't you?" she asked and that made me sigh.

"It's his wish, not mine, "

"Well, I would like to inform Mr. Knights that I would only be investing under the assistance of his son. Ace, " she smiled at the end.

"Not possible, " I told her and that made her squint here eyes.

"My father is overseas. By the time, he returns, I will be back to the headquarters. This investment thing will take a long period with you inspectin

a sudden, I am your best friend? Is fourteen years alright for people who were never in contact to be called best friends?" I asked as my voice lower down in the end and I removed her hand from mine.

"You can get angry as much as you want. I promise you, I will make it up to you, " she spoke more like mumbled and I inhaled deeply. The same woody fragrance, that I couldn't forget hit my nostrils and I closed my eyes for a bit, calming my nerves.

"How are you so tall now?" she whispered and looked up at me. Truthfully, I was hovering her height this time.

"We have really grown ups now. Aren't we?" her voice broke in the end but she chose to the other way as she wiped her eyes and then stared back at me, with a smile.

"Let's fix this like grown ups?"


"Ace please, " she asked softly.

But it was not enough. I had no idea why I was so upset with her. She made me feel like a loser and I had no idea why I was feeling such things even after meeting her after so many years. Honestly, it was not really easy for me to go through such things. I have been suppressing everything from fourteen years, even though my friend Jung who is now settled in Korea, managing his father's business meets me often and try to force me to throw everything out of me.

It is just not easy. And Veronica showing up all of a sudden is hard for me and I knew I needed time to adjust my feelings with the pressure of coping up with Knights Corp.

Just nothing was going according to what I had always dreamt of. Neither could I live my dreams nor could I achieve the person I loved.

"Please Ms. Sullivan, I hope you understand, " I said as I walked past her and out of the room and this time, she didn't follow me to stop me for which I was grateful of. Because god only knew what I might have done if she came after me any more.

She still had that effect on me.

My phone buzzed in my pocket as I waited for the elevator and I took it out to find two text messages.

CK: How was your dinner date? ;)

VS: Ace, please forgive me.
