The business had been his life as long as he could remember. Something his father wanted from him and something that he had learned to love. That had been what? Maybe fifteen or twenty years agi now? Ryan Alexander Craven couldn't be sure. All he knew was he had been at his work and the CEO for awhile. And the one helping the place to continue as one of the top businesses in New York. The world even. A proud man, but also humble.
His mind was wandering the papers that sat in his briefcase. The meeting that would be taking place later that morning. Or would be if the cab would ever get moving. He was about to ask the driver what the hold up was, but then heard the voice to his side. A young woman who was rather surprised that he was there. Well that made two of them.
But he was able to keep it masked. [b "No, it's quite alright. The drive was getting lonely as it was..So the company will be nice."] The man said, offering a faint smile.
Gabriella Marie Jones was a twenty two year old graduate of Berkley University, she graduated at the top of her class with a Masters in Business, and a Bachelor’s in Journalism. Her Father was Micheal Jones, CEO of Jones Enterprises, Inc. Hence the Business Degree. Her twin brother was also a Businessman, so her Father had expected her to be as well. Ashton, her twin, had went to Columbia instead of Berkley. She wanted to be a writer, but according to her Father, writers don’t make money. Her brother was set to take over Jones, so that at least gave her a little bit of breathing room. She was thankful that didn’t have to work for her Father, not yet anyway. She wanted to make her own way in world.
She had made the move back in New York City right after graduation. She was moving into a townhouse with her brother. While he was moving furniture with his friends, she was on the search for a job. She had multiple interviews, but the job that she wanted most was at McKinney Enterprise. It was a starter position, assistant to the CEO, but it would get her foot in the door, and she would learn about the company. It was a great opportunity, if only she could snatch it up. It could/would open up so many doors for her.
The last thing she was doing when she slide into the left side back seat of a cab was paying attention. [b “5th and Clarke please.”] she said. She almost jumped out of her skin when she seen something nice out of the corner of her eye. She then realized there was another man in the backseat. [b “Oh my goodness! Sir, I am so sorry! I wasn’t even paying attention.”]
