  “My bad ma” he said as he turned around to face me. Even the sound of his voice was beautiful. He's dressed in an all-black Armani suit with black Versace shoes. The suit fit his honey brown complexion well. He isn't too big or too small either, he is the perfect size.

   “It’s okay, it wa-was my fault an-anyways for not paying attention.” I stuttered. Oh great now he’s going to think I’m stupid.

  He chuckled. “Somebody’s a little nervous.”

    “It’s not every day I see a fine man inside this firm.” I smiled at him.

    “Oh so you think I’m fine?” He smiled back showing those pretty white teeth of his.

  I raised my hand so I could shake his hand. “I’m Amina, and you are?”

    “Didn’t answer my question huh and Elijah.” He replied back while shaking my hand.

   “Are you new here or something because you are looking mighty sharp.” I said in between my laugh.

   He smiled. “Nahh I’m here to meet my lawyer.”

    “Well good luck on your case and nice meeting you Elijah.” And with that I strutted off without even waiting for him to say anything. I made sure my hips was swinging from left to right cause I just knew he was watching.

      I entered the conference room and immediately greeted my client. She was about 5’5 with ocean blue eyes, and a really bad tan. I swear some people really should not have kids. She looks like she can barely take care of herself so why the hell she got a child for. Soon as we sat down she wasted no time to tell me her side of the story. She kept rambling on about how she tried her best to prevent the rapes, that she loved her daughter dearly and she wouldn’t do anything to harm her. If this is the type of people I’m going to represent all the time than I might as well start finding a new career. Rather I like it or not I still have to represent her cause if I don’t Mr.Harrison will have my ass. After the meeting was over I rushed to his office to see what was up.

   “So I hear you have a rape case on your hand.” He said in a nonchalant tone.

   “Yeah I do but I’m representing the idiotic mother.” I replied back.

     “I have no problem taking it from you if you don’t mind.” He said standing up.

   I stared at him confusingly. “Wait, why?”

   He walked towards me and sighed. “Because I’m the father of that little girl.”

   “You’re lying!” I said with my mouth practically hitting the floor.

     “I wish I was.” He said while sitting at the tip of his desk.

      I sat in front of him. “Well what happened?”

       “Carol and I dated a few years back. We broke up over a stupid argument though and we never seen each other ever since. Two years later I received a letter from her saying she was two months pregnant the time we broke up. She claims she didn’t tell me because she felt as if it was the best thing to do. I tried finding out where she lived but I found nothing. It’s like she magically disappeared and now she’s back in Florida all of a sudden. It was her responsibility to protect our daughter but she failed miserably. So I’m going to take matters into my own hands.

  I slowly took in everything he just told me. “Wow so you are going to purposely lose the case? But what about the girl?”

  “Yeah pretty much and since I’m her father she’ll most likely be in my care.”
