They’ll give them something to talk about…

When I step into the cafe, I don’t know exactly what I’m looking for.
The meeting I’d set up with the owner of Buckley Contractors and Construction had been vague at best, but they were who Natalie used to renovate her home a few years back so I was hoping this panned out.
I order a caramel macchiato and glance around the room.
“Aidric,” a clear voice calls and I twist.
“Olivia Buckley,” I murmur, approaching the tiny table with a slow smile twisting up my lips.
I remember Ollie from high school, though she was a few years younger than me, and I’ve seen her, over the years–the town is too small to not run into her. But I was never close to her, and after she had a little boy two months after graduation, everything I knew about the smart, pretty girl vanished.
There was only a serious single mom intent on doing the best she could for her son.
“How are you?” I ask, and she lifts an eyebrow.
“This isn’t time to catch up, Aidric,” she says, her voice dripping amusement.
“Why are you here?” I ask, but it makes a twisted sort of sense and I answer my own question. “You took your father’s company.”
She nods, something proud and unspeakably tired in her gaze.
“Interesting,” I say, softly. “Then I assume you know why I’m here–what I want.”
She frowns at me. “You still–you don’t mind hiring me?”
“Why the hell would I? John Buckley built a strong company and if he left it in your hands, I’m not sure I have anything to worry about.”
“He isn’t part of the company anymore, though.”
I frown and give Ollie a severe look. “Are you trying to talk me out of hiring you?”
