When we got to my office I told her to sit down and wait for me while I attended the meeting. I told her that if she needed anything she should ask my assistant.

I went for the boring meeting and have been sitting here with different CEOs trying to make an important deal. Some of them here are my childhood friends (Samantha and Theo) since their parents gave them their company to run. They have been trying to make deals with other companies including mine.

Then the door to the conference room burst open. Blue ran, crying her eyes out. My heart constricted in pain seeing my daughter cry.

She ran to me and jumped on my lap. Her little hands winded around my neck and her cute head rested on the crook of my neck.

"What happened to you sunshine?"I whispered, afraid she would run away from me too.

"D-daddy she called me a batthad (bastard). Mommy said it's a bad word!", she whispered in my ear pointing at my assistant. White-hot rage filled me.

"How dare you talk to my child like that! YOU ARE FIRED!".

Everyone in the room was shocked. I might have forgotten to mention that I have a daughter.

My friends gave me a look saying they wanted to know more about it. I just nodded and continued cuddling with Blue.

I told my princess to sit with me during the meeting. After the meeting everyone was tired and hungry.

This is what my assistant is supposed to do, to book a place for us to eat and complete the contract by signing. Even the meeting was not supposed to be in my company. Since she forgot to do her job well, more reason for her to be fired.

My daughter, who was cuddled in my arms, looked at them and said, "Well I know a place where you can eat. They have the best food ever! If you all like to go, it's not far from here". 

They just grinned at her and told her to take them there. We all went in our separate cars. I was staring at my daughter, she was smiling.

" Sunshine, do you and mommy go there quite often?" I asked.

"Yes, daddy! Mommy takes me when I'm a good girl" she said with excitement evident in her voice.

When we got there I was amazed by the place. It's very beautifully decorated, even the others can't argue about the place. If the outside of the restaurant is on one level, the interior is just on a new one!

We sat down and were ready to order when I saw who was taking our order. I was shocked

It was Raven. With a badge that said 'Owner'. What the heck?

She was equally surprised like me. I asked, "You work here?".

Raven Pov

Blue called him daddy. Finally, she has a father figure in her life. I just hope it lasts. I don't want my daughter to be hurt. And at the same time, I won't fall for Ethan's charms again.

But I had to go to work. Got a text from work that we had customers and just a few employees were available and he needed my help.

I told the father daughter duo I could not go to the park with them. It was upsetting seeing them both sad but I had to work.

I left with Amanda telling her to drop me off since she wanted to see someone around there. During the car ride, she was just smiling and chatting about how cute we were.

I just gave her a deadpanned look and said, "Not going to happen, Amanda. Don't even think about going there''.

" Why not? He's single and not to mention hot!", she said, pouting.

"Come on Maddy you can't just expect me to forgive him just like that after what he did to me." I snapped my fingers for effect.

"But that was a long time ago, Raven. I just want to see you happy." She said dejectedly

"Just drop it okay, I am very much satisfied living with my daughter ALONE,'' I said angrily.

"Okay, whatever," she said, rolling her eyes. "But just remember, he is the father of your child, you will surely forgive him eventually and who knows, maybe have sex with him!" she said, smirking.

"No! It will never happen", I said sternly, getting out of her car.

"You are going to have sex with him!" she screamed. People were staring at us, embarrassed, I had to walk faster into the building blushing.

I went in to see Dave. He told me he needed help with the restaurant. And I helped him serve the customers since we were short of employees today. And people came from different places to check out the place so it was a very busy day

As I got to the next table to ask what they wanted I was surprised to see Ethan with Blue. I thought they were going to the park and, now he knows I work here, that is the last thing I wanted him to know. He will not agree with what I am doing.

He just looked at me. "You work here?" 

"Yes, I work here, any problem?" I sassed.

"You can't work here! No way! You need to quit this job. I don't want you working Raven" he said angrily.
