The car came to a halt before a building and as I got out, I was astonished to see the massive giant building with the name Sullivan Ventures. She walked to my side as the driver drove to the parking. I looked at her face to find her smiling at me and I shoved my hands into my pant pockets smiling back at her when Noah walked past me.

Veronica brought us for a visit to her company and here we were early in the morning. I saw Ava waiting for us at the entrance of the building with a smile as Noah made his way towards her and they both chatted while we made our way to them.

"Good Morning, Ms. Sullivan, " Ava, her secretary greeted with a genuine smile as Veronica nodded and walked past her.

"Good Morning, Mr. Knights, " Ava looked my way as I smiled and replied to her with the same energy.

Veronica was waiting for us near the elevator as I made my way to her when the elevator door pinged open and the liftman greeted us while he pressed the eighteen number, and we were taken up as I looked back at Noah who stood next to Ava before us.

He seems really different whenever the girl, Ava was near.

As the door of the elevator slid open, I was met with people already scurrying here and there working. Though it was already early, still people were already in the office, working.

"Why are they this early?" I asked and Ava looked back at me.

"They are the night shift workers. Their shift will be over in an hour, " she said and I nodded. I moved to the side, letting Veronica guide the way and as she walked before me, I saw her employees standing to the side, giving her space to walk by as they greeted her acknowledging her presence.

Unlike the way, she always smiled to me, her face was neutral and she had professional integrity and vibes as she walked towards her cabin. She looked dominating and people acknowledged her presence which was a new sight to me. She looked stern and I was already impressed as I checked out her office.

We walked into her cabin and she got rid of her suit jacket, placing it over her chair, just like me as I do in my office and sat down on her chair and signaled both Noah and me to take a seat on the chair.

"Get us some coffee and breakfast, " she said to Ava, who nodded and walked away.

As she went out, Noah stood up looking towards the door.

"I will help her out. Excuse me, " he said as he followed her out and I looked back at Veronica who was already looking at the door.

"Did you notice you

glaring at her.

"Do you know what you have done?" I asked and she shrugged.

"Yes, I am pushing you to your ambitions. He as sent me the details of the place. We are going out with him for dinner, " she said as she forwarded her hand out to give me my phone.

"I can't!" I snapped and she took my phone back away from my reach.

"Your attitude is annoying me now. You are going to come with me for dinner and then only I will give you your phone, " she said and that made me even angrier.

"You just don't understand what situation I'm in right now. I can't take part in the project, because I can't give it time, "

"Don't make excuses. Stop making your situation as an excuse. If you want something, you better find a way to get it. He is asking you to meet him and discuss what can be done for you to give time to the project. All you do is give up without even trying. Since I know what is the reason for making you back up, I will be accompanying you to Mr. Cottrell, "

"I already told you, I won't!" I said with determination.

"We will see, " she stared at my eyes folding her hands and shoving my phone in her pant pockets.

"You behave the same way I behaved to Simon's case. I hope you remember what exactly you told me at that time" she said as she turned around and walked off but I stood there recalling what exactly I told her and thinking how it is similar to her wanting to marry Simon for his property.

That was clearly her business-minded aspiration and my situation is different. It is more of... sacrifice for business.

Like a reality, it struck me hard as I stared at her retreating back, thinking about it.
