There was a soft knock at the door, and I looked up to see Pamela, my father’s secretary standing there, her hair tied back in the same severe blonde bun I remembered from my childhood, only now there was silver streaking through the gold.
“Sorry to interrupt,” she said, and pursed her lips, looking lost.
“Don’t worry about it,” I said, waving her in. “What do you need?”
“It’s just,” she began, then stopped, tugging nervously at the tie on her blouse. “Well, the shareholders meeting is beginning in just a few minutes, and… they’ll be discussing the future of the company.”
I nodded, taking in the meaning behind her words.
“I thought you might want to be there.”
For when they name Father’s replacement. After all, the show must go on. Profits didn’t stop mattering just because of something small, like the death of the CEO.
“They’re saying it might be you,” she added quietly.
So, this is it. The moment I’ve been waiting for is finally here.
I’d been imagining this for years—me being named CEO of my father’s company—him passing the torch to me, recognizing my hard work. But now, I just felt numb.
Was this what I really wanted? This life? Or was that just what I'd been telling myself for so long, I couldn't imagine chasing after something different... even if that something made me happier than I'd ever been.
Even if it was someone waiting for me, down in that funny little Texas ranch...
I had a decision to make, and I knew, no matter what I did, my life would never be the same.
