Ace's P.O.V. 18

6.2K 334 60

I was in the elevator on my way to my office, happy. Kade had kissed me again out of nowhere, first. I was happy it happened because it showed he wanted to kiss me. Not just him kissing back when I kissed him because he probably felt the need to. Walking down to my office I see Kade and my heart jumps. I walk faster until I get to the front of his desk.

"Good Morning" I say smiling big. He looks up and back down to his computer.

"Morning" he answers coldly. Okay, what the fuck is going on here?

"Are you okay?"

"You have a meeting at 9 and Mr. Perez is coming in at 11" He says ignoring my question.

"Kade"

"I have to get back to work, Mr. Kent." he says ignoring my presence and typing away on the keyboard.

"What the hell did I do now?" I ask pissed. We were perfectly fine yesterday.

"I'm working, can I please be left alone?" He says still not turning to face me directly.

"Kade, dammit look at me. What the hell happened? What did I do?" I almost beg. He turns completely and I see a bruise on his left side of the face. I reach up at touch his face making him close his eyes.

"Leave me alone, please. What we had, didn't have, it's over." He says opening his eyes.

"What happened to you? Who did this?" He shakes his head and breathes out a shaky breath.

"Let it go, please."

"I can't. This is not over, Kade. How the fuck can it be over when it hasn't even started."

"You're going to let it go because if you don't I quit." I pull away and walk into my office slamming my office door; hard.

"Hey, bro, what's up?"

"Do you know what the hell I did or what happened to Kade's face?" I ask Mason.

"What do you mean?" I tell him what happened and he's confused.

"I haven't actually seen Kade in a few days. I've been busy down here and haven't gotten a chance to go up there and actually talk to him. I'll go up and ask, but I don't promise anything. I'll call you back in 10."

I wait and wait and wait. Fucking 10 minutes and I still haven't had a call from Mason. When I look at the time I see it's time for me to head to the meeting I have. When I walk out I don't see Mason around. Kade ignores me when I walk by and it hurts. It hurts like hell.

When my meeting is done I have another meeting, on-on-one this time and it drags on. It feels like an eternity by the time it ends. When I check the time again I see it's a little over 1 pm and I a starving. I walk out of my office and see Kade is eating while looking over some papers.

"I thought we were having lunch; like we always do." I say catching his attention. He puts the papers down and opens his mouth.

"Can you sign these so that I can send them before I leave today?" he asks once again ignoring my question. I groan and take a pen signing the papers after looking over them quickly.

"Why are you eating without me? Who am I supposed to eat lunch with now?" His coldness towards me is breaking my heart.

"I ordered lunch for you because your meeting took longer than expected. It should be here by now" Right then the elevator opens and a teenage boy comes in with a box of pizza and soda.

"I'm looking for a Kade?" He asks us once he looks at the receipt.

"That's me. Thank you." Kade says taking the box. He smiles at the boy and watches as he leaves. When the boy is out of sight Kade turns and hands me the box and bottle of soda.
