Pearl's POV

As we make our way towards the house, I couldn't help but think about what just happened a few minutes ago.

I almost kissed the man who adopted me.

I sighed out a breath and I guess he heard because he turned and looked my way and said, "You know there are about 11 rooms in this place. I also have 2 other maids working for me. I'd like for you to meet them. "

Then after that it was just a silence while I look around my surroundings. The pools and fountains were already lit, stars were already shining up in the night sky, and the wind was mild making the trees sway lightly. I could feel little goosebumps on my skin but not enough to have me shiver.

Once we walked in the house, there was an amazing aroma of what seemed like steak. There was a 2 other men in the age range of 30-40 and beside them, there was Richard smiling as he walks over to us with the other two guys. All of them were wearing suits and ties.

"Pearl, you already met Richard. These other two men are James and Joseph. James is my body guard and Joseph is yours," Mr.Stirling instroduces them to me.

James, that looked like he was 39 shook my hand and greeted me with a warm smile," Welcome Miss. Pearl, It's nice to meet you. If you ever need anything at all, I am here."

Then Joseph, my new body guard bowed his head down and gave me a big smile saying," It's a pleasure to meet you Miss Pearl. I am Joseph, your personal body guard. I'm looking forward to knowing more about you Miss."

"Please just call me Pearl. It's nice to meet you both, thank you. " I smile and feel my cheeks turning slightly hot from blushing. The two men leave with smiles on their faces. "Dinner will be served in a minute." Richard says as he walks away, leaving me all alone again with Mr. Stirling.

Mr. Stirling pulls a chair out for me. I sat down and thank him while he sits down on his own chair, next to mine.

"Mr. Stirling, what's our job?", I ask after a few seconds of silence.

"I have my own company and since I own the company, I'm the CEO of Stirling & Co. Management. I'm making my empire bigger than it already is. Maybe one day you'll inherite it and make it as your own empire," he says with a wink. Just as he said that, dinner was served. Dear God.. me as a CEO?





After we finished eating, I met the two house maids, Marilyn and Jane. They were both really sweet. I wonder how long they have been working for Mr. Stirling.

We made our way up the stairs and into the hall filled with doors. There were about the total of 8. Some were maybe bathrooms or closets. We head right and down the hall, there was a room with white double doors. Mr. Stirling presents a box with a key in it. He smiles down at me.

"Ready?", he asks and I nod.

He opens the doors and once I walk in, there was that dumb shocked impression on my face again.

The room was a massive size. Probably the biggest bed room I've seen. There was a cream colored couch with purple and gold colors. There was a coffee table with 3 arm chairs the same color as the couch around the table.

Across was another table that's like a desk. On top of the desk, there was a macbook pro 2015 like the new ones I've seen in the stores.

The bed was a magnificent, it was colored cream but the pillows were a a soft gold-ish color. The duvet was a silky satin purple while the bed frame was like a huge golden twig twisting around the bed.
