I just continued doing my work when my sister left. I know she will not stop bothering me about my secretary, but she knows me well if I decide that's final and I won't change it.
She was right when she said that my secretary never lasts long because I always fire them. I don't like employees who are lazy and have a hidden flirt in their bodies. If they want to stay longer, they also have to do their work properly because I am paying them well.
I treasure this company because this is my father's property while Kiara manages Mommy's restaurant and she also has boutiques. I did everything to keep the Alcantara Company healthy and successful because this was the only worry we had from our parents.
I admit that until now I'm still mourning, I still can't accept their death. Uncle Cain said that I've changed a lot, I am not as cheerful and jolly as I used to be. I feel that when my parents died, half of me also died.
I never thought that they would be taken from us early but I know that they are happy now because they're together. I admire their relationship even though their first marriage didn't go well, in the end, they still ended up together. Too bad for my sister because she didn't even see the love of our parents so when they were buried I promised to take care of and protect my sister at all costs.
I also cried for almost a few months after our parents were buried. Fortunately, Uncle Cain, Uncle Dark, Aunt Calliyah, and Aunt Monique didn't leave us. I studied Business Administration to be able to manage the company when I graduated. Fortunately, things were not easy for me because our uncles were there to support me.
I was deep in thought when the door opened and Uncle Cain and Uncle Dark entered.
"You're talking to your parents' picture again," Uncle Cain said.
"I just miss them, uncle," I answered briefly and I saw him averting his gaze.
"We all miss your parents, it's different when they're here but we know they're happy wherever they are now." Uncle Dark said. "How are you?" he asked me.
"I'm still a handsome uncle and nothing has changed," I answered him arrogantly.
"I heard that you have signed an investor who is elusive." Uncle Cain said.
"Finally I did it, uncle, I courted her for a few days, and luckily I was able to get her to agree because if she doesn't want to, I won't force her," I promise.
"You inherited your father's attitude, he is also short-tempered." Uncle Dark shook his head. "I heard you fired your secretary again, " he added.
"Yes," I replied.
"Reduce your hot-headedness, Stormy, so you can have a long-lasting secretary. Just this month you have three secretaries already.” Uncle Dark exclaimed.
"Because they don't do their work properly that's why they get fired, I will just waste money, uncles, if I let them stay here in the company, and then I'm not satisfied with their work." I defended myself.
They didn't stay long and left because they were going to pick up their wives, while I was already getting ready to go home. I just arranged the documents on my desk and left the office. I went straight to the parking lot and got into my car.
My trip took almost an hour because of the traffic, sometimes you'll just get irritated when rush hour hits you. When I got home, I quickly parked my car in the garage and went inside. I saw my sister watching tv.
"Hi, brother." She greeted me with a smile.
"It's a miracle that you're home earlier," I promise.
She snorted. "You're so mean to me, I always go home early. You're always calling me if I'm late,"
"Sometimes I go home earlier than you. Because Nigel isn't here, you are going anywhere." I preached to her.
"Duh! We're not okay, he's not calling."
"Why do you mean?" I asked.
She rolled her eyes. "Your friend and I broke up!"
"I don't know about it, you're big enough to know what is right from wrong," I said.
I was about to walk up when Kiara stopped me. "Why?" I asked her.
"You still don't have your secretary right?"
I nodded. "So? What now?” I asked her again.
"Because I know someone who needs a job so I talked to her if she wants to apply to the company."
I looked at her seriously. "Who's that? Does she know anything about being a secretary? You know my requirements for that position,"
I saw her scratching her head. "She is an undergraduate."
"Are you kidding me, Princess Kiara? You're just going to recommend to me someone to be my secretary and an undergraduate?” I exclaimed.
"Relax brother, she helped me last time when I needed help."
"You can help her in other ways, but to be my secretary? No way!” I said and went upstairs. I still heard her calling me but I ignored her.
I don't understand my sister, imagine she wants me to accept someone she knows who didn't graduate as a secretary? I don't know if she has lost her mind or what.
When I entered my room, I went straight to the bathroom to take a shower and get dressed because we were going to have dinner later.
Kiara POVI'm just looking at my brother when he's going upstairs, I can't help but force him to accept Bea as his secretary. I have confidence in that girl and know that she can do the job well.And because I was determined to make him agree, I followed him to his room. When I entered, I didn't see him but I heard the splash of water in the bathroom so I'm sure he was taking a bath. I sat on the bed while waiting for him to finish.Later I heard the bathroom door open and my brother came out, he looked at me."What are you doing here?" He asked."We're not done talking brother!" I snort at him."If you insist on what you were telling me earlier, my answer is still no."I stood up and approached him. "Brother, she needs this work, her mother needs surgery," I promise."And so? Do you still want to make the company a charity? You can help her if you want. You have your business, right? Why don't you let her work for you?""I already offer her some help but she doesn't want to accept it
Storm POVI'm currently in my office even though it's only 7 am. I often go in early so I don't get overwhelmed with work.I remembered what my sister was saying again, why does Kiara trust her like that? I know she helped my sister last time but for her to bring her into my company is surprising.My sister is kind but she is not easy to trust and even if I don't want the favor she is asking for I can't do anything but agree. Yes, I am heartless to other people but when it comes to my sister I am different. I will just give that woman a chance and I know my sister already told her that if I don't like how she works, I will fire her immediately and I still need to hire someone.Later I heard a knock on my door. Maybe this is what Kiara is saying to me." Come in,"The door immediately opened and a woman entered, she was beautiful. "Good morning Mr. Alcantara." She greeted me."Are you what my sister is talking about?" I asked her."Yes, I am,""Sit down," I ordered her and she immediat
Beatrice POVTwo weeks have passed since I started working at Alcantara Company as Storm's secretary and the only thing I can say is that the core of my boss's behavior is bad, not a day goes by that he doesn't hate me but even so, I'm getting used to it I'm with him too. Maybe this is the reason why no one stays with him for long because he gets hot-tempered quickly especially when you do something wrong at work and I can't blame him knowing that he is just taking care of their company.I'm still happy somehow because I've been with my friend Nicole for a long time, we haven't had any communication since we moved house and fortunately she also works here so somehow I know someone. As for my mother, she was operated on a week ago with the help of Sir Storm because he spent everything in the hospital, so I need to fix my job because I owe him a lot. If it wasn't for his help, maybe what would have happened to my mother. For now he still remains in the hospital because it is still neces
Nigel POVI'm here today in the company of my best friend Storm, I just came back yesterday from abroad because I was attending to something there. I stayed there for almost a few months and just now came home.I was approaching his office when I saw the woman I didn't know, it looked like she was his new secretary, I approached her to ask if her boss was inside."Hi Miss." I congratulate you.He looked up at me. "Good morning Sir, do you need anything?" he asked politely."Is your boss here?"He nodded. "He's inside, do you have an appointment with him?"I shook my head. "I'm his best friend." I introduced him."Oh, I see, I'm sorry, I'm new so I don't know you. Just go inside and he'll be there."I just smiled at him and went straight inside. I caught up with Storm who was sitting in front while focusing on her phone."It seems that the CEO of Alcantara is not busy right now." I said laughing.It looked at me. "Gago! When did you come?" he asked."Just yesterday." my short answer."
Beatrice POVIt's Saturday today and I don't have work so I'm here today at the hospital and watching over my mom, I'm happy because she's recovering little by little and I know that her life is no longer in danger."Son, I think you are thinking deeply." I looked back at my mother when she said this."I'm just happy because you're doing well." I promise.She smiled at me. "And that's because of you son, without you I would probably be dead a long time ago.""Don't talk like that! I can't be alone yet." I know."I'm different son, how are you doing at work? Maybe your boss is making you suffer.""I'm fine, I'm lucky in my job now because even though I didn't graduate, I was hired by that company and even became the CEO's secretary. I owe a lot to their brothers and sisters because they helped me to save your life." I said"Thank you son, thank you for everything you have been doing for our family since then.""You guys are my responsibility, especially since we're the only ones left t
Kiara POVI just left the hospital because I visited Beatrice's mother and another one knows if she is there because she is not working at the company right now. To this day, I still can't stop laughing at his stories with me, it looks like my brother has found a match.I can't blame my brother for why he is like that, I know that until now he is still mourning. He is still longing for their presence and I'm the same even though I haven't been with them for a long time, how much more can my brother do. He didn't even know if he was still hurt even now even though it was a few years ago.He was okay somehow when he met Ate Kaye, I thought they would end up together but it turned out not because he chose to leave my sister. I witnessed how my brother's life became miserable when he and Ate Kaye broke up, but what I know now is that he is okay somehow.When I left the hospital, I saw Nigel leaning against his car and it looked like he was waiting for me. He is my brother's best friend an
Nigel POVWhile I was talking to Kiara, she just kept her head down and didn't even say a word, this is how she is when I speak seriously even if she is a brat sometimes, she knows how to listen to what is being said to her."Babe?" I called her name to get her attention.She looked at me. "I-i'm sorry," she exclaimed weakly."I'm not mad at you okay? I'm just mad at what you're doing and I don't want that to happen again, especially since I'm here again." I promise."W-what do you mean?""What kind of question is that? Of course, I'll take back what's mine," I said.She didn't answer right away and just kept looking at me so I ruffled her hair. "I told you the last time we talked that we will fix our misunderstanding right?" I said."I thought you would never come back to me.""Who said that? You know I love you." I said.I took one of her hands and put the ring on her finger causing her to cry all the time."I had that ring made to replace the first one I gave you." I smiled.She qu
Storm POVI went to the bathroom to calm myself because of the frustration I am feeling now because Beatrice didn't remind me of the meeting I had today with one of my investments. So I can't help but feel frustrated."You've been working here for two months, haven't you? And I always remind you that all my schedules should be arranged by you! What's so hard to understand?" I snort at her."And I've told you several times, Sir, yesterday I reminded you of that meeting. I didn't know you weren't listening and you didn't keep it in your mind.""You're going to blame me now? You're my secretary, that's just your job. Yesterday was different from today and you must remind me again! Do you know how important that client is? And because of your stupidity, I lost it!" I shouted at her."I doing my job properly and how many times I have told you that I already reminded you about that meeting earlier, so it's not my fault anymore that you forgot it,""No matter what you say, that thing can't d
