When I first started working for Holt Atwood, I respected him. That respect turned to like, and eventually into love.
But Holt is married to his job, and I am not about playing second fiddle to mergers and acquisitions. So it’s time to move on.
I can do this one last thing for him though. I can go on this singles cruise with him and help him see that work isn’t all there is to life. If I can do that, I will feel better about leaving him with such short notice.
Work has been my focus for so long I’ve forgotten what it’s like to just let go and have fun.
At first, when my parents insisted I go on this cruise because I was on the fast track to burn out, I thought I could take my assistant along and make it a work trip.
But Dane has other ideas, and the longer I am around him outside of work, the more I realize maybe everyone is right. Maybe I have been so focused on work I’ve missed what’s really important.
I just hope it’s not too late to convince Dane I want him for more than work. I want him forever.
