HOME, IS WHERE THE HEART IS
ze. ”If you know the first things about him, then you would know that he doesn like egg muffins. ”
Victoria leaned closer with a mischievous look plastered on her face. She was certainly having a good time giving Simone that information.
The realization on Simones face made it all the more exciting for Victoria.
”You didn know that? ” Victoria feigned the surprise look. ”How long have you been with him? A year? Two years? And you don know that? she whispered mockingly.
Tactically snatching up a muffin from the plate, Victoria gave the other lady a sly smile and bit into it.
e really getting on my nerves, ” Simone swore at Victoria, becoming very upset.
Chewing softly, Victoria shook her head lightly, then placed the half-bitten egg muffin back on the plate. ”That could use a little more seasoning. Its really bland, ” Victoria said and downed Richards cup of milk.
Simone looked like she could really burst any minute.
e really crazy. Really really crazy. ” Simone fired and stomped out of the kitchen.
”I really hate your secretary! ” Simone snarled as she stomped into the walk-in closet, fuming by the closets door.
Richard was almost done getting dressed, he only needed to pick a watch and knot his tie after buttoning his white shirt.
Standing before the mirror, he buttoned up his crispy white shirt, his back to Simone who was still fuming at the entrance, though he could still see her through the mirror.
”I don . Shes great at her job. ” Richard noted and it earned him a dark stare from Simone. ”Richard, really? Shes so nasty to me. ”
He just shrugged and reached for a black tie that hed put on top of the glass shelves.
Simone traipsed closer to him, forcing him to turn to her. Snatching the tie from him, she threw it over his neck.
”You couldve just told me you don like egg muffins, instead of passing it off like that. ”
The egg muffins!
Richard opened his mouth to say something but shut it when nothing came out of it.
”It made me realize we might not really know the basic things about each other, ” giving him a weak smile she knotted the tie perfectly and drew a manicured finger across his handsome face.
”What is it Richard? You don like me enough to pop the question? ” She asked, her voice coming down to whispers.
Realizing exactly where she was headed, he took a few steps back and grabbed hold of his grey suit jacket.
”I can do this right now, Simone, ” shrugging into his jacket and buttoning it.
Simone wasn going to let him be without an answer, he knew that.
Simone held him by the shoulders, looking intently at him. ”I need to know whats up with us… ”
Shrugging her hands away, gently though as he wouldn want to seem rude. He picked up a gold watch and strapped it on his wrist.
”Can we talk about this later? Maybe over dinner sometime? I need to go Simone. ” He said impatiently.
Actually, there was no rush. He didn even need to be at the meeting, but he doesn intend to let Simone know that, for his own good.
Simone was really upset, but knew Richard wasn going to let her steer him that way. About that dinner!
”So… ” She drawled, pouting at him and batting the fake lashes at him, ”about that dinner? When would that be? ” Folding her hands and staring at him.
Richard turned to check himself out in the mirror one last time. Confirming that he looked good and was good to go, he turned to Simone, ”why don you check your schedule and tell me. Ill plan something special. ” He didn mean to add that but…
Forcing a smile at her, he knew it was time he left.
”Youll still be here, yes? ” He really hoped upon hope that she wouldn be.
Simones lips curled in a smile and she leaned close to him. ”Don worry, Ill be gone before you get back. ” Pressing a wet kiss to his lips, she straightened his tie and bade him goodbye.
Victoria smiled up at him immediately he came downstairs.
”What did I miss, Victoria? ” He asked as he handed her his briefcase.
”Taylor called. She couldn reach you, ” taking the briefcase from him.
His ears piqued at that. Taylor, his eldest daughter had been gone for almost four months for a business training program, somewhere in the far west.
”I still can understand why she had to go all the way to Merynn for a training program. ” He muttered, more to himself than for Victorias ears.
Running a hand over his brows, he fixed his eyes on Victoria who still had more information to share. ”What did she say? ”
”Her programs ended so she would be coming home. ” Victorias face broke into a big smile.
The information was well received because Richards face beamed and his eyes lit up.
”By Saturday. Thats like in four days, sir. ”
Nodding, he started for the front door and Victoria followed suit.
”Then you need to get a housekeeper and a cook ASAP! ”
His daughters coming home.
