Grace's Pov:

I was now walking to my dad office. Today everyone was quite busy in the office. My dad Rick Silver was a famous business man. He never mixed his personal life with his profession and that make him where he is now.

I knocked and heard a faint come in. I entered in and saw dad looking at the files on his table.

"Nix i told you to check everything before coming here. Why the hell is everything mess up?" My dad asked angrily. His assistant Nix tensed and fear could be seen on his face.

"S-sorry i did check i-i guess some were misplace." He said his voice wavy. Even for his 3 years of working here he still is scared of him. I mean who wouldn't. He talked a bit harshly to everyone when it come to wrong doing in the office.

Nix turned to leave and when he saw me he smiled lightly. I returned the smile and walked to my dad.

"Grace did you got the file?" He asked in his business mode. He is always in his business mode.

"Yes Sir all information is here and if there is something missing Mr. Ben asked you to call him and informed him." I said in the same monotone voice.

"What do you mean by if there is something missing? You had to check everything before coming here! That's what is expected from you." He snapped and i inwardly sighed.

Here we go again.

"I can check it again-"

"No! Let it i will do it. Reserve a table for Mr Ben and i at the nearest restaurant for one o'clock." He ordered and i nodded. I turned to leave but when i reached the door he stopped me.

"Be home by six o'clock we need to talk." He said not looking up from the file.

"Yes Sir." I said and closed his door. Once i am out i breath out in relieve.

"He is in his snappy mood isn't he?" Asked Noah and i chulcked.

"Like always." I said as we walked to my cabin.

"Anyway do you want me to bring you something for lunch. Your break is nearly over but still you didn't take it and i know you are hungry." He smirked and i nodded.

He was right i was hungry. I did not have time to eat breakfast as i had to be in the office at six to fix some meetings. When i was going to have my break i was asked to prepare the file i just gave my dad.

"Yes please. I wont be able to go out i need to book a table at the restaurant for a meeting." I sight and he nodded.

"Of course what do you want to eat. I will go and grab it. I am still free till Mr Boss want to go out." He smirked and i rolled my eyes. Noah was my dad driver and one of my friend.

"Anything would be fine." I shruggled and he nodded. He went down and i went back to work. My phone rang and when i looked at the ID i saw my mom calling. I ignored the call and continued the booking.

It was quite hard to book it as it was the most visited place and all the booking was over. Thankfully the manager agreed and book one for my dad.

My phone rang again and i sighed. I took it knowing that my mom wont stop till i took it.

"Hello." I said

"I know you were ignoring my call young lady and let me tell you this isn't nice. Anyway come home as soon as you finished with your dad there is a dinner and you need to get ready. I dont want you to put our image in shame you got it?" She said and i rolled my eyes.

"Yes i will be there." I hang up before she could reply. My family and i did not share the most perfect relationship. My mother always concerned about her status and image while my dad contently work. They barely showed any affection toward me but now i was used to it.

After 15 minutes i was done. The meeting was in about 10 minutes which mean i would be free later.

"Here come your food ma'am." Said Noah and i smiled at him.

"Thanks." I picked up the sandwich which he knew i loved and started to eat.

"So when will your dad go out?" He asked sitting on the edge of the desk.

"In 10 minutes get ready for a boring ride." I said chulcking. He rolled his eyes and sighed

"Its always boring with him thats why i like to go with you." He smirked and i rolled my eyes.

"Yeah cause you found it funny when those old man flirt with me." I said sarcasmly and he laughed

"Your face is always worth seeing thought." He said sobbing up a little but i knew he would laughed again just by thinking about it.

I finished my sandwich and throw away the wrapping. I clean the table and arranged my workplace. I hate when its messed up.

"Well i need to go the meeting start in 5 minutes. See you soon Gracie bear." He said and i chulcked.

"See you Noah."

I grabbed my notebook and grabbed my handbag in my arm letting it swing freely as i walked. I went near Nix and found him typing fast.

"Nix inform Mr.Silver that his meeting is in 3 minutes." I said and he looked up wide eyed.

"Shit he told me to tell him 5 minutes before." He hurriedly stood up.

"Nix relaxed." I ordered and he nodded. He breathe in and out before calming and walked to the office.

Since now i was free i walked to my house. It was a bit far but i like walking. It was only 3 o'clock and many people was still walking around.
