As she says, she does.

She made her driver drive back to our hotel to fetch our luggage and she made our stay in her mansion, promising us of hospitality while we were in Pretoria. We didn't mind. As long as I get to be near her, I had no problem.

I sat down on the recliner near the pool with a mug of coffee as I looked up at the dusky sky. It was already evening and I was already tired enough after having a tour of the city, the full day. Veronica kept her promise as she took us for the tour but while returning she got a call from her office and they needed her presence. She ended up driving off to her office telling me that she would take me to her office the next day for a visit.

Her secretary, Ava was the one who drove both me and Noah back to the mansion and as soon as I got back, I had a shower and asked for a mug of coffee and ended up sitting near the pool having some time to myself. But the peace didn't last long as I saw my phone beeping multiple times and I read the notifications to find some missed calls from Mr. Cottrell and messages and emails from him asking me to get in touch with him, regarding the NASA Mars project.

I heaved out a sigh as I thought about it. With my involvement in Knights Corp, I had no time for myself, how am I supposed to manage with a project which needed my presence twenty-four, seven?

But that was my dream. I saw my dream rippling away from me and that made me look up at the sky. Just how far do I need to go to reach you?

"How was your day?" I heard someone and looked to my side to find Cami making her way towards me with the maid wheeling her to my side. As soon as she reached me, she had a smile plastered on her face and she adjusted her eyeglasses, tilting her head to the side, waiting for my answer.

"Amazing. We covered pretty much areas today, " I told her and she nodded smiling.

"I had always wanted to meet you. Now, when I have met you, I want to talk to you, if you don't mind, " she asked and I placed my mug on the side table, nodding at her.

"Absolutely. You can tell me, " I said paying her attention as she signaled the maid behind her to leave her alone for some time and she nodded waling back inside the mansion.

"I already everything about you. How you met Veronica, what happened between you two and how you two again met in New York. She shares everything with me but recently I knew she was going to get married to Simon. I have met him once but though he seemed like a nice person, I couldn't really agree with Veronica's decision. But all of a sudden I hear from her that she has finally called off the wedding, but she didn't share why she did that. I wanted to ask you if you know anything about it, " she asked and my mouth formed in a thin line as I thought about it.

"Honestly, she didn't tell me the reason either. We were in a resort and Veronica wanted me to warm up to Simon as I was objecting her decisions but all of a sudden, she called it off, " I told her and she nodded clasping her hands, looking to a distant.

"Ace. Can I call you Ace?" she asked and I smiled as I nodded at her.

"Veronica, sh

you to stop blaming yourself? Whatever I did, I am the only one to be blamed or judged. I was on my right mind and I am solely responsible with whatever happened to my life. You are not at all to be blamed, " she smiled as she gave a slight tap on Cami's cheek who smiled back at her.

"And you involved Ace with this?" Veronica furrowed her eyes at me and I smiled while Cami shrugged in response and signaled her maid to come and get her.

"Where are you going? I'm not finished talking, " Veronica said but all Cami did was wink at her way while the maid wheeled her away leaving us alone.

"Why exactly did she tell you?" Veronica asked and I shrugged leaning back on the shack smirking at her wanting to annoy her.

"Why do you think I would tell you?"

"Ace?" she seemed caught off guard as I told her that.

"You know everything got a price. If you want to know what we talked about then pay me for that, " I said and that broke out a smile on her beautiful face. "Are you serious?" she asked and I nodded. I forwarded my hand out to her and she shook her head reaching out to her wallet pulling out two Rand notes.

"Will this work?" she asked as I nodded and chuckling at me, she reached forward to hand me the money when I got hold of her hand and pulled her forward as she gasped and fell over me. Our eyes met and I marked as her face grew red and she tried to get up only to be restrained down by my arms that wrapped around her waist and she widened her eyes at me, clearly caught off-guard.

"What are you doing?" she whispered and for the second time made it to get up only to fail as I smiled staring up at her.

"There are somethings that money can't really buy and I'm one among them, " I said and she stared down at me. As she stopped resisting, I took it the chance to push the strands of hair away from her face and tucked it behind her ear.

"Let me kiss you, " I said and she looked down at me instantly, clutching the front part of my shirt. I had my hand over her neck as I pushed her down and immediately caught her lips into a passionate kiss.
