*A/N: Hey guys! Well, my
first sequel of three. I knew "Don't Cry Tonight" had to have a
sequel. I am doing things a little different. Instead of saying
who the POV is, I am putting "*********" instead of their name. I
am only switching between the two main characters, Rose and Kane.
It wil be obvious as well who is talking. Hope you will enjoy,
this will be a pretty hot story!*
First Day of My
I turned on my stereo so Faith No
More's song "Epic" is playing and I am running through my loft.
"Oh God, where is my blouse?" I said and my friend, Denise
Easton, came out and she is holding the pink blouse I've spent
the last ten minutes looking for.
"Rose, I think you are freaking out
just a little," Denise said and I grabbed it and put it
"Well, for one, I am proving to
Daddy that I can take care of myself. I am also proving to my
brother that I am not helpless. I am proving to myself I am worth
something," I said and she rolled her eyes.
"Just because you dropped out of
UCSD last year doesn't mean you're a failure. You're the kind of
person that knew college is not for you."
"Yet, my father bought me a loft
and has been paying my bills AND buying my groceries AND giving
me spending money the past year. Oh yeah, Rose Scott is VERY
independent. I wanted this job, and I got it, now help me pick
out my shoes," I said and Denise followed me to my room and my
Pomeranian, Russell, licked my toes as he ran out of my room. I
looked at my room then at the view of the San Diego skyline and I
sighed. It kind of sucks to be the daughter of Brent Scott, the
most powerful man not only in San Diego, but the whole West
Coast. Since Bradley and I was born, he owns a business here in
San Diego, Seattle, Portland and Miami. My father is a dedicated
family man and he never went to long drawn meetings in those
cities, he Skyped the meetings that didn't take place in San
Diego. Being a very powerful man means my family is the richest
on the West Coast. I always got what I wanted, and at first it
was cool. Now, it's annoying because I live on my own, but my
daddy is paying for everything! I heard the door open and I asked
Denise to check who it is. "Hello Claire, Rose is almost ready,"
Denise said and I immediately went to my mom and hugged her
My parents told me about what
happened twenty-one years ago. When mom was nineteen, my father
and lunatic brother kidnapped her. My dad loved her and my uncle
wanted her for sex, and raped her a few times. Blake was killed
by my mother when she just found out she was pregnant with me and
my brother. "Hey baby, nervous about today?" Mom asked and I
"I am working for Kane Sheppard,
the second most powerful man on the West Coast," I said and she
"Your father thinks you'll do just
fine, and requested for you to go over to his office when you get
your break. I have to hurry because Dette is going to Skype me. I
still miss her and Fritz and Christoph." My Aunt Dette and her
family had to move to my Uncle Fritz's homeland of Germany a year
ago. Dette says she feels like she is right at home in Berlin. I
gave my mom a hug and when she left, I finished getting dressed
and then took a good look at myself in the mirror. Being born and
raised in Sunny California, my skin is tanned. I got my mom's
sunny blonde hair and dad's light green eyes. I have my mom's
attitude and personality, I am outgoing around the people I know,
but I am very quiet and shy around strangers. My pink blouse
shows a little bit of cleavage and hugs my curves. My navy skinny
slacks is complemented by dark navy knee high boots. Denise came
in and she smiled. "Your fit for the first day at Sheppard
Telecommunications!" Denise said and she rubbed my shoulders.
Denise finished college, community college. She is a RN and works
at a doctors office.
"Let's just hope I don't screw up!"
I said and sighed and I am now ready for the real world.
"Rose, Mr. Sheppard is not in yet,
he started his morning run late. Usually, his assistant starts
the day by printing the finance sheets for the week. Then, you
print all of his appointments for the day and his material he
needs for his morning meetings. After that, he will tell you what
he needs to do, understand?" A woman name Barbara said and I just
nodded. She is the one that trained me a few days ago, so I sat
down at my desk and done everything she asked me to do. As the
final papers we're printed, I heard everybody get very busy.
"Morning Mr. Sheppard," One woman said.
"Morning Kane, how's the run this
morning?" Barbara said and I peeked through my cubicle and I
gasped. Denise told me that Kane Sheppard is hot, but not THIS
hot. His dark blonde hair, almost a light brunette in color, is
tossled and messy looking, but very stylish. He has this grey
eyes that can melt your soul. He has light stubble on his very
strong jaw and he has the American Boy smile with his perfect
"Good Barbara, is my new assistant
here? I would like to speak with her," Kane asked and I slid down
and tried to look busy.
"Rose, honey, Kane would like to
see you in his office," Barbara said and I swallowed and walked
slowly down the corridor and opened the glass door to his HUGE
office. I walked to his dark cherry wood desk and he is sitting
in a black leather seat, facing the San Diego skyline. "Well,
Rose, I finally get to meet you," Kane said and he spun in his
chair to face me.
"N-nice to meet you, Mr. Sheppard,"
I said and he chuckled and smiled, which I feel like melting
"Call me Kane, and from what your
business instructor said, you are very intelligent. Tell me why
you dropped out." I slid my hands to the front of my body and
began to mess with my fingers, my nervous habit.
"College is not me, I didn't feel
right there, if you know what I mean," I said in my shy, quiet
voice. Kane just nodded and stood up and began to walk
"I am a Yale drop out myself.
Father was not so thrilled, how did Brent react?"
"He, um, accepted my decision. My
mom, Claire, never went to college. They got married early, when
she was pregnant with me and my twin brother. She told me that
college is not meant for some people."
"I met your father on several
occasions, Brent is a very nice man, but strong powered. He has
the West Coast in the palm of his hand. I called him up to see if
I should even hire you, and he said that you got the brains and
talents and that I should, and you are here." So, he called daddy
up to see if I am hirable? I feel sort of frustrated right now,
my father basically gave me a job.
"Well, he thinks highly of me. My
brother Bradley is suppose to continue Scott Enterprises whenever
daddy retires, but looks like he is into the weight lifting more
than business." Why am I talking about my personal life with
Kane? He nodded and poured him some of bourbon.
"Want some?" He asked and shook my
head and he chuckled. "I forgot, you're twenty years old, still a
few months before you can drink."
"Yes, let me go back to my desk and
give your morning reports for you." I turned around and headed
out the door. That is so strange, it seems like he wanted to know
me and I opened up to him like a flower.
Well, Rose is better than I
thought. Highly professional, just like her father Brent. She
seems sort of shy and quiet though. As I watch her walk out the
door, I cannot help but to glance down to her rear and then her
legs. Those knee highs, oh I love knee high boots. They can
highlight a woman's legs just right. I watched her fumble with
the papers and she walked over back to my office without talking
to anybody. Very obedient! She opened the door and she held out
the papers and I grabbed them, purposely touching her fingers and
I felt it. I felt electricity running between us, and I know she
felt it too. She cleared her throat and jerked her hand back. "Is
there anything you need me to do?" Rose asked and I smirked. She
has a very quiet and gentle voice. It's that kind of voice that
can sound highly seductive when triggered. I took a quick glance
at her breasts, and they are perfect. They are not humongous
huge, but they are not little tennis balls. They are right smack
in the middle. She is the right kind of curvy too, she is curvy
in the right spots. I glanced over at my desk and then back up at
her. "I will email you what I need after the meeting, that's what
I usually do. You can go back to your desk and take your break at
eleven thirty," I said and she nodded and turned on her heel and
left my office.
I went back to my desk and put my
hands on the back of my head. I know I will never be as
successful as Brent Scott. I am happy as second place to a man
like him. He is one of the best business men in America, a
dedicated father and husband, he is everything. Hell, he can even
play fucking electric guitar and play Rammstein! "Kane, they are
here to start the meeting," Rose said, and I smiled. She even
sounds sweet on the intercom.
"Send them in, remember, I will
email what you need to do. It will take an hour," I said and she
said her okay and the men walked in and I greeted them with a
smile. As they walked in, babbling about their lives, I kept
thinking about Rose. Wonder if she would go out for some coffee
with me tonight?
I walked into Daddy's office and
Gladys, his assistant greeted me and announced into daddy's
private intercom that I am here. I smiled at her and walked down
the corridor to his office. When I opened the door, daddy smiled
at me and I ran in for a hug. I am very close to my father, and
my mom as well. Daddy has always been there for me, sometimes a
little too much. "Hey, how's your first few hours working for
Kane been?" Daddy asked and I looked at the few silver strands in
his hair. He looks pretty young for being fifty years old. Barely
any wrinkles and only a sprinkle of grey hair in his raven black
"Good, been pretty busy. I actually
talked to him, he seems nice," I said and he nodded and touched
my upper back and pushed me to his desk. "But, he really dug deep
into my family life."
"Probably because we have a few
deals with each other, darling. We have worked together since he
started eight years ago. He started young, unlike me. I started
at twenty-three, he started at twenty-one. I see him going as far
as me in the next decade or so," Daddy said as he took apart a
tableware dish with one of mom's famous dishes, stuffed
"He is pretty good looking too," I
said licking some of the sauce off my finger. Daddy laughed and
ate a bite of the cabbage.
"Well, he is quite handsome, if I
say myself." I laughed and we ate our lunch together. I looked at
my watch and I have to go or I will be late.
"I love you daddy, I have to go
back to work!" I said as I gave him a quick kiss and he gave me
his usual fatherly kiss on the cheek.
"Come over tonight, we miss you
over there, especially Bradley," Daddy said and I nodded. Well,
off to work!
It is five till five and I just
finished the last thing for Kane, which is typing out his weekly
quota's into another formant. I printed it off and walked back to
his office. Before I entered, I took a quick glance at Kane. He
is leaning against the window with the San Diego skyline smiling
at him, on his cell phone. I have never seen such a strong jaw on
a man, and it's so hot. He has to work out a lot because he has
muscles in his arms, legs, chest and probably his stomach. I
sighed and knocked on his door. He turned around and waved me to
come in and I opened the door. I can smell his cologne as I
entered, he must have gave himself a couple of sprays not that
long ago. "Ah, Rose, have you finished the quotas for me?" Kane
said and I nodded. I handed him the papers and he looked through
them and I took his silence as I am finished for the day. I
turned on my heel and he stopped me. "Rose, care to go out for a
coffee with me, to celebrate your successful first day here?"
Kane said and I am astonished. A good looking, well drop dead
gorgeous man, like Kane, asked me to drink coffee with me! Oh
fuck, I am going to my parents tonight!
"I promised my dad that I will go
eat with the family. Some other time?" I said and he nodded,
looking kind of hurt.
"Yeah, tomorrow, if I am not
working late?" He said and I nodded. I cannot believe I accepted
a sort-of date with Kane Sheppard. It's not a date, just coffee.
Rose Elizabeth Scott, it's just coffee between two colleagues.
Just one colleague is a gorgeous and powerful man!
