She may have experienced nerves on stage just then, but they were nothing compared to the nerves she was experiencing just then. However, as adept as she was at hiding her true feelings, she jutted out her chin and regarded him coolly.copyright protection4PENANAWAtDZjQzew

She thrust the award in her hands out towards him. “Here to pick up your award?” she asked him.copyright protection4PENANAO0WTIGvqj8

Although he didn’t regard her as coolly as she him, there was still a lack of emotion in his gaze. “Not quite. You were taking too long so I was about to take the job of accepting the award upon myself when you finally showed up.”copyright protection4PENANAaIr1HoV15Z

“Mr Evergreen said I was on time,” she dismissed, grabbing her father’s hand and placing the award within it as the aforementioned man appeared in their presence.copyright protection4PENANAt1AWEzgv9u

“Mr Evergreen was being as polite as always,” her father answered, not sure whether to shoot a look at his daughter or the abashed charity head.copyright protection4PENANA1YuYRdEnDY

“I apologise, sir,” he said immediately. “But better late than never. Had I known you were here, I would have called for you.”copyright protection4PENANAvNGXPomKpr

“Yes, why are you here?” she asked her father then, with her eyes narrowing the slightest bit; the only reason she’d turned up is because her parents weren’t meant to be here. “I was informed my presence was required because of the lack of yours.”copyright protection4PENANAKTskQ7U6C3

James turned the award around in his hand as he observed it whilst listening to the hostile words of his daughter. “Last minute business,” he responded, but didn’t expand any more on his words. Sky opened her mouth and was about to retort when James continued before she could interrupt him. “This is a very nice award Theo, thank you very much.”copyright protection4PENANAAE24CTihgV

Theodore Evergreen beamed at his friend. “The least we can do for your help. So thank you.”copyright protection4PENANAfMJWKyl6jK

Sky narrowed her eyes and spoke before her father continued. “Has this business got to do with me at least or can I leave?”copyright protection4PENANAy3D0ou7iAK

“I won’t be bothering you so you don’t need to bother me. Feel free to enjoy the event. My business is with someone else.”copyright protection4PENANAmaoof0ixiz

Sky nodded. “That’s all I needed to hear. Mr Evergreen, I’ll be taking my leave now.”copyright protection4PENANAtymcv6LQd4

“Ah—Of course. It was nice to see you, Miss Simmons,” Theodore said as she left the two men to themselves.copyright protection4PENANAAL8eLxITPj

“So, what business brings you here James?” Theo asked as he turned back to James.copyright protection4PENANADct2BI3Ugl

James smiled. “Ah, it isn’t any business you need to worry yourself over. In fact, I’ll have to be on my way now too. It was nice as always to see you though,” James said, sticking out his hand for Theo to shake, which he did.copyright protection4PENANAtJUQWpWIfa

“You too, James, you too. Thank you again,” Theo said, placing his second hand on their entwined hands. “I’ll see you around.”copyright protection4PENANAMQVV5HsOBi

“See you around,” James nodded, clapping his friend on the shoulder before taking his leave as well and leaving Theo to sort out the rest of the event.copyright protection4PENANA7fvAh7jk1A

Sky was irate as she came out at the side of the stage, but upon seeing the accumulated masses of dogs in the expanse of field in front of her, she felt a large portion of it dissipate. Surely it wouldn’t harm her to stay a bit longer if her dad wouldn’t bother her.copyright protection4PENANAGvjAlgZiYf

With a new bounce in her step, Sky attempted to find some dogs to spend time with that looked they had owners who weren’t too chatty.copyright protection4PENANAsL5oHa59YG

She didn’t have to look long when she spotted what appeared to be an Alaskan malamute a short distance away; she could almost feel her own imaginary fur stand on end in excitement.copyright protection4PENANAs6VXGd40x5

“Hello,” she said happily as she walked over, making sure that her happy tone that was aimed at the dog was spoken in a tone acceptable to humans; she did not want to risk disappointing the owner before she even got a chance to touch the dog.copyright protection4PENANAAeBUOWaOe9

“I’m going to assume the greeting was aimed at me and not the dog,” an amused voice said. As she moved her eyes from the dog to the lead and finally the owner, she laid eyes on a relatively handsome young man. “And I’m also going to assume that you’re here for the dog and not for me.”copyright protection4PENANA3HV85CjbLi

Sky couldn’t help but crack a small smile at his words, despite how cheesy it was. “And I’m going to assume you either have this happen a lot or that’s your attempt at a pickup line,” she responded as she bent down to pet the dog, having assumed that it was alright by the owner based on what he’d just said.copyright protection4PENANARdoNb51f5z

The stranger chuckled. “Can it not be both?”copyright protection4PENANAlGNWACTLq8

Sky grabbed the sides of the malamute’s face and began to mess around with its cheeks, which ended up getting the dog more excited. “I guess it can,” Sky managed to respond before the dog jumped up and pushed her onto the ground in excitement. “Oof!”copyright protection4PENANAVuPQCVsW6e

“Oh dear! I’m so sorry, are you alright? Bad dog, Archie!” he reprimanded his dog before pulling him off her. As the dog was pulled back, he clearly knew he should feel guilty for having knocked her over, but the wagging tail clearly gave away that he was still too happy to leave enough room for much guilt.copyright protection4PENANAeYsDMDINTN

“That’s alright,” she responded, standing up and dusting herself off. “Ah,” she said then, noticing a tear in her side. “I guess his claw got a good hold on my dress though.”copyright protection4PENANAmeu9b4L4Qc

“Oh no, how much did it cost? I’ll give you the money to replace it,” he responded immediately and went to take out his wallet.copyright protection4PENANAdLG3BjY4f4

“No no, it’s fine,” she responded, immediately beginning to tear up that side of the dress to her waist. “Besides, high cut dresses are a thing, right?” she asked as she admired her handiwork.copyright protection4PENANAiu2L8OoQCi

“Are you… Wearing shorts under that dress?” he asked, perplexed.copyright protection4PENANAEYw88IdTN3

“Yes,” she replied, without hesitation. “Can never be too careful.”copyright protection4PENANA60OM3q62um

The handsome stranger was amused at her unique views. “That’s the first time I’ve seen something like that.” Sky shrugged her shoulders nonchalantly in response to his comment.copyright protection4PENANA6NQ9yYYXPA

As James looked over at his daughter in the distance with his friend Fred at his side, Fred couldn’t help but laugh as he followed his line of sight. “Is that her?” he asked James. James pursed his lips and nodded. “She doesn’t look like she’s that bad.”copyright protection4PENANAftyMCGuPAi

“Looks can be deceptive,” James responded, never taking his eyes off her. “I mean, have you ever seen a girl of her status do things like that?”copyright protection4PENANASGiHtm7zoC

Fred shot a sad look over at his friend. “James. It’s what you call fun. Everyone has to let loose sometimes.”copyright protection4PENANAVvpMEYLCVA

“The only thing this girl has let loose are her morals,” he mumbled to himself.copyright protection4PENANAca4LXGrrw1

“What was that?” Fred inquired.copyright protection4PENANAJoI26bpeLN

James shook his head. “Never mind.” He turned to look at Fred then. “Regardless, my wife and I are more than happy to save your family that bit of money if Mason agrees to these conditions.”copyright protection4PENANAQHigtXefza

“In that case, I can’t thank you enough for your help,” Fred said, sticking out his hand as he turned to James, who shook it. “Thank you very much.”copyright protection4PENANAQMlUxiBZJ7

“No need for thanks. If anything, I’m hoping I can thank you the next time we see each other. You think Mason will accept the offer?”copyright protection4PENANA1twJwCVVQG

“I think so,” Fred nodded. “He likes challenges, and getting something amazing like this opportunity for free in return is something he’s unlikely to turn down.”copyright protection4PENANAIHn1XRYc6y

Their hands separated. “Alright. Well, I’ll sort everything out and let you know when I’m done. Give me a call beforehand if Mason isn’t happy with the offer.”copyright protection4PENANAmWlHRSZsSJ

“Will do. I’ll see you soon,” Fred smiled. James put up his hand in farewell as he made his way to the car, taking a detour to go past his daughter who was still chatting with the owner of the malamute. As he got closer, he was surprised to see that he recognised the young man.copyright protection4PENANAATd6CJIyEz

He approached the duo from behind Sky, leaving the young man to be the first to notice his presence. He bowed his head out of politeness as the older man approached. “Good day, Mr Simmons.”copyright protection4PENANAengCodtnqA

“Good day, Adam,” James greeted in return. Sky’s confused face almost immediately morphed into an angry one as she turned to face the figure that was now the focus of the man’s attention.copyright protection4PENANAWMxhuoauR2

“I thought you said we weren’t going to bother each other here?” Sky asked him, with obvious distaste laced between her words.copyright protection4PENANAerVsxybf6Q

“And we’re not; we’re leaving. Come on. See you soon, Adam.” Adam bade farewell in return as James made a move to grab Sky by the upper arm but she dodged it and looked in the direction from where he’d come from.copyright protection4PENANAOkd5XCirZJ

“Business deal gone bad?” she asked, amused, trying to find the perpetrator and thinking she’d have to thank him for putting her father in his place.copyright protection4PENANA1Wwzd1XnvO

“Actually the complete opposite,” James responded as he was already on his way to the car and expecting her to follow. “Which is why I need to get back to the house to sort the rest out. Are you coming?”copyright protection4PENANAqKglcNTo3Z

Sky sighed and grunted an unwilling affirmative, for she couldn’t be bothered walking back to the house, regardless of how close it was.copyright protection4PENANAeSkrXi3gJ3

With a defeated stance, she also bade farewell to the young man called Adam and followed her father out of the park and back to the car.copyright protection4PENANAZLZvkdwiB2

Adam bent down next to his dog and looked after them with curiosity as he marvelled at this unusual girl. Who would have thought she was the daughter of James Simmons?copyright protection4PENANA71NnmZbfne
