Excerpt

A tiny taste of what’s in store:

Frenetic. That was perhaps the easiest, if not the best, way to describe Aiden Reid’s life. After a long day at work, he was packing up to go home and rest. The phone on his desk started to ring just as he was about to leave.
Wondering who could be calling this late, he answered, “Aiden Reid.”
“Hi, Aiden,” his mother’s cheerful voice said from the other end. Aiden wondered why she had called him on the office number when she had his personal one.
“Hi, Mom, what’s up?”
“Aid, I just wanted to ask if you would like to join us for dinner. Your father wishes to speak with you,” she said.
Aiden could sense that she was tired from all the wedding shopping; after all, his sister was tying the knot. “Oh! He didn’t say a word to me when we met an hour ago, but I’ll be there. See you later, Momma.”
“À bientôt!” With that, she ended the call.
Aiden checked the time; it was 7:35PM. If his mental calculations were right, he would be home by 8:00PM. Just then, his cousin Alex walked in with a huge grin plastered on his face, banging the door to announce his arrival.
“Hi, Aido, let’s go! Time to party,” Alex called in excitement as he walked towards him.
“Shut up! Don’t you have any manners? At least knock on the door,” Aiden replied in a serious tone. “And don’t call me Aido.”
“Whatever . . . Aido! Listen, Matt called and asked if we wanted to join him and the guys; they’re going to that new nightclub downtown. Come on, dude, let’s go!”
Aiden shook his head as he picked up his stuff. “No can do, buddy. Mom called, I’m having dinner at their place. You go and have fun.” He smiled at the thought of Alex having fun and added, “And don’t call me if you get drunk.”
Alex was not just Aiden’s cousin; he was his best friend too, and Aiden was always the first person he called when he got into trouble. That included getting lost while exploring the town.
“You’re such a spoilsport. C’mon, Aido!” Alex called after him.
“No, Alex. I’m going home. I have work tomorrow.” Aiden sighed. “I need to find a new secretary too, Mrs. Ford resigned this morning.”
“Oh really? The witch left the lair, why ever so?! Did you not give her enough sweet children to feed on?” Alex laughed at his own joke. He had the weirdest sense of humor that could lighten the mood in seconds.
“She wasn’t that bad, Alex,” Aiden smiled. He knew one thing for sure; Alex didn’t like the poor lady so he just teased her all the time.
“Oh, you don’t know anything about her. I’ll make you a deal; you party with us tonight and I’ll find you a secretary tomorrow. What do you say?”
“Really, now? What are you gonna do? Hire a model to be my secretary and flirt with her all day?”
“Models aren’t that bad. Actually that’s a great idea!” Alex’s grin got bigger.
“I’m leaving now. I’ll see you tomorrow.” Aiden paused at the door to add, “My mobile is going to be switched off all night, so don’t bother calling me for help. Later!”
“You spoilsport!”
Aiden left Alex groaning and muttering at his back.
