Chapter 1

Jennifer sat there in her office at her father’s company where she was the lead interior designer. Her father was CEO and her twin brother was COO. She knew her brother would be taking over the company once their father retired.

“Hi baby girl,” David said.

“Hi Daddy, what’s up?” Jennifer asked.

“I have a meeting with Michael Ross in a few minutes and want you to sit in with us,” David said.

“Shouldn’t you have James do that since he’s taking over the company once you retire?” Jennifer asked.

“He will be there too, but I want you there as well, he suggested that when I retire, he wants you both to be in charge,” David said.

“What?” Jennifer said.

“Honey, he wants you to be co-CEO with him, he doesn’t want you to be left out because he’s older than you by two minutes,” David said.

“He’s right, sis, I want you there with me,” James said.

“You serious, bro?” Jennifer asked.

“He’s serious, sis,” Ashley said. She saw his wife, Ashley, standing beside him.

“I don’t know what to say,” Jennifer said.

“It will be awhile before I’m ready to retire so you have time to let it sink in,” David said.

“Babe, they are in the conference room,” Amber said.

“Thank you, my love,” David said.

“He’s not alone, Mom?” Jennifer asked.

“No, he has his sons with him,” Amber said.

“Let’s go baby girl,” David said. They went to the conference room and walked in and saw two young guys and an older guy sitting there waiting.

“Michael hello,” David said.

“David how are you,” Michael said.

“Doing good, this is my son, James and my daughter, Jennifer,” David said.

“Hello,” Jennifer said.

“Hello,” James said.

“Nice to meet you both, this is my oldest son, Ethan and my younger son, Eric,” Michael said.

“Hello,” Eric said.

“Hello,” Ethan said. Jennifer noticed Ethan staring at her. She glanced at him and gave him a small smile before looking at her papers in front of her.

“Okay so let’s get down to business, what brings you here to the office?” David asked.

“Ethan owns one of my nightclubs and Eric owns the other and they need to be redesigned and updated,” Michael said.

“Of course, Jennifer is our lead designer, she can come look at the clubs and see what she can do or do you guys have ideas on what you want changed?” David asked. Jennifer saw Ethan and Eric whispering to each other.

“Boys,” Michael said.

“Dad,” Ethan said.

“What’s up,” Eric said.

“What are you two whispering about,” Michael said.

“Just stuff,” Ethan said.

“I was telling him what Bec said this morning,” Eric said.

“That reminds me, have you given any thought about what else we talked on the phone about?” Michael asked.

“I am still speaking with my wife about it,” David said.

“Dad?” James asked.

“What’s going on?” Jennifer asked.

“You will know soon,” David said.

“Deadline for decision is at the end of the month which is in two weeks,” Michael said.

“I’ll have an answer by then,” David said.

“Okay what’s going on,” Jennifer said.

“Yeah Dad, are they buying us out?” James asked.

“No we aren’t,” Michael said.

“No son, you both will be taking over when I retire,” David said.

“So why can’t you tell us what’s going on?” Jennifer asked.

“Because I’m going to have to talk with your mom about it,” David said.

“Okay that’s it, come on, Jen, let’s get out of here, obviously we are not going to be in the loop of whatever is going on,” James said. She looked at her father and everyone and followed her brother out the door.

“James, Jennifer,” Amber said.

“Mom, what’s going on?” Jennifer asked.

“Yeah, Dad is hiding something and won’t tell us until he speaks to you,” James said.

“I don’t know, honey, but I will talk to your father,” Amber said.

“We will have to wait and find out once he tells us,” Ashley said. Jennifer went to her office and closed the door and sat down and went back to work.
