(Isaias' POV)

"I'm actually here at East River at the moment, with my woman, and she's been treated very bad, and you know I don't tolerate bad behaviors." I heard him gasped softly. "I'm so proud to take her here in your restaurant, unfortunately, I was embarrassed with the way your two staffs treated her like an outcast!" my voice dropped lethally an octave, grim and menacing. I could feel his fear radiating off from the line.

"I'm so sorry, Isaias. I can take care of that the soonest. I'll talk with my two employees," he promised, "and I hope this doesn't change your mind in investing more in our company," he let out a soft apprehensive chuckle, but I wasn't amused at all.

"I want this Sophie hopskin and Sadie Peyton fired, Capisce?"

"Will do, Mr. Vitale. Will do," he responded firmly.

"ASAP!" I added firmly.

"Right away, sir," he agreed briefly.

I nodded my head, my eyes trained on Angel's bulging eyes. Her lips were pursed, and eyebrows pressed tightly together. "Good. Now, I want to make up with my upset girlfriend, and I'll talk to you soon," with that, I ended the call.

Angel was just gaping at me in disbelief. "That was the president, is it?" she gave me an expectant look.

"The CEO, yes" I responded briefly.

"You just did not order him to fire the two. I can't believe you." She shook her head in disbelief as she huffed while she leaned her back against her chair incredulously. She looks downright upset, so I kept my mouth shut, not wanting to provoke her all the more. "Yes, I felt a little upset, but not to the point that you need to get them fired!" she widened her eyes on me, and I just bit my tongue, holding it back.

"Isaias!" she snapped, I peeled my eyes off from the menu and met her disapproving stare.

"I already did, Piccola," I let out a loud sighed, and stared at her deeply.

Her sharp eyes softened a bit. Shaking her head, she turns her attention to the menu.

What have I done?

I thought I'd helped her. I don't want her to be upset, nor let anyone makes her feel bad.

Now, she's upset at me.

Is this how woman behaving?

It's really hard to please them.

Alright, now what Am I gonna do?

"You're not upset at me right?" I asked staring at her. She lazily looks up and met my eyes.

She shook her head. "I'm not. I'm just shocked you just did that. It wasn't that big issue," she shook her head again.

"I can't take it back, Piccola."

She nodded her head. "Just next time, please think of the consequences first before you do a drastic action. Who knows those girls are trying to make ends meet, and all they have is this job?" I couldn't believe she's still thinking about those two, after how they treated her, but I kept my mouth shut and just nodded.

Then, she looks up at me again. Her eyebrows still furrowed. "And why would this CEO listen to you?" she asked with her eyes filled with deep curiosity.

I just shrugged my shoulders.

"Isaias!" her snappy tone dripping with a warning. I let out a soft sighed and gave in.

"I have 35 percent share in his company," I answered truthfully.

She nodded silently. Then she averted her attention back to the menu lying in front of her. I felt relieved. "Have you decided what to order?" I asked after a long pause, changing the topic.
