I put the final touches on the contract I had been working on, then
swiveled around in my chair to take in the view from my corner office, high
up over the noise and confusion of the Manhattan streets below. The hazy
gray skyline in the distance, mingling with the vast swathe of buildings that
were intersected by the river, instantly calmed my busy work mind. It was
definitely the best view in the building, and I made sure to appreciate it every
It had been a long day, and I was looking forward to getting back to
my apartment with its similar views, some quiet music, and a smooth glass of
the aged whiskey I only broke out when a deal had been finalized. My phone
buzzed furiously, and since it was set to silent for everyone except my two
business partners, I didn’t bother turning around. Raylen was in the building
with me and would just come and poke his head in the door if he needed to
tell me something. That left Silas, who’d recently run off to his hometown
and was playing house with his old high school sweetheart.
I was fine with having to do all our meetings with him via video call,
and the arrangement hadn’t really affected the daily running of our business.
What I was a little bit tired of was his constant angst over the budding
relationship or, possibly worse, his crowing about how ridiculously happy he
was. Maybe it was a tinge of jealousy that made those particular calls more

tech company, and I was honestly happy for him, if he’d found what he was
Still, I ignored the call. Nothing was wrong that I could do anything
about, or else Raylen would have already alerted me, and my sights were set
on my cozy leather armchair and that glass of whiskey. Miles Davis was the
only person I wanted to hear moaning about their love life. Especially since it
had been so long since I’d had one of my own to speak about. I took in a final
sweep of the view, letting my eyes follow a plane heading out across the
ocean, then packed up my briefcase to head home.
I nodded to the few employees still working at that late hour, deciding
to peek in on a meeting in progress about one of our newest apps.
“Having troubles?” I asked.
Except for the legal aspects, I didn’t really have anything to do with
development, but Raylen, Silas, and I liked to keep our fingers on all the
pulses of our company. The three young developers looked like they’d hit a
wall, with untucked shirts and frazzled expressions.
Allison, the head of that project, smiled tiredly. “Nothing we can’t
handle,” she said.
