I entered the room with my heartbeats already on my throat. Gathering the kind of courage I never knew before, I wore a half-smile on my lips as I beat the board of directors' intimidating stares with my outward confidence. I realize how silly I was. The things these people do were beyond my comprehension. Give me surgical blades and other sets; I might have the full confidence to cut into a human's head and solve a problem, but not with these kinds of people who could kill you with their lethal gaze.
The lawyer stood up while I was yet halfway to my seat. He bowed down with a polite smile, and I got surprised. It was only yesterday when he got so angry that he looked like a beast, ready to devour me.
"Good morning, Dr. Grey!" he said while ushering me to my seat. He then pulled a chair next to him and waited for me to settle down before he left.
He then stood at the edge of the long table and cleared his throat before he spoke.
"Ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce Dr. Grey to all you, the heiress of the Grey's legacy and wife of Mr. Sean Mark Grey."
I let out a warm smile and ran my eyes to all of them. "Good morning!"
