Chapter 1 - A Son for A Billionaire


Thirty two years old Ace Clark was the Vice President of his family multi billionaire company. Clark corporation was a multi billionaire dollar companies that dabbled in everything in New York, from canning food products to fancy restaurants and small cafes and the others. Clark corporation was rated as one of the most influential businesses while Ace Clark was listed among top 30 CEOS on Forbes.

He sat at the bar with his maternal cousin, Arthur Young who owns an entertainment agency. Arthur listened to Ace as he rattled on about his new business plans.

"Once I get the Vice President of Huncho company to sign the contract then the deal is done." Ace said with clear excitement in his tone.

"Once you sign the deal then we would celebrate in a big way but for now let us talk about the upcoming family event, have you prepared everything for your engagement party?" Arthur asked as he drank from his wine glass.

"Not really, the truth is I have been really busy with work at the office. But the last time I checked on the arrangement I think.. mom is insisting we have a photo shoot before then and some other silly stuffs." Ace answered.

"Momma is a good event planner but from what I am seeing right now, you don't look too satisfied with what is going on around here. Tell me why the long face? You should be happy about this your wedding which means you are leaving bachelor's life to being a married man." Arthur grinned.

Ace leaned closer toward his cousin. "Can you ever stop teasing me? you of all people should know that I am not interested in this whole thing and I don't want to get married yet." He whispered.

Arthur laughed. "Oh! Sorry buddy I almost forgot you don't love your so called fiancée. But don't worry bro -" He said placing one of his hand on Ace's right shoulder blade. "I am pretty sure that once you get married and spend some time with your wife, you will possibly fall in love with her. Camilla is nice, beautiful, smart, kind and -"

Ace interrupted him as he removed Arthur's hands from his shoulder blade. "Please enough of this silly jokes, it is not funny. But if you think my wife to be has these good qualities in which you have stated then you can as well take my place if you are that deeply interested in Camilla." Ace said with a screwed up face.

Arthur laughed again. "Come on bro, dad has always wanted you to have Camilla, not me!"

Ace shook his head in agreement. "And one thing that pisses me off about this whole thing is the publicity, I really hate that shit!" He spat.

"Oh.. you want a private party?" Arthur wolf whistled. "You have really changed bro because if I can recall, let us say about ten years back.." Arthur tapped a finger at the side of his head. "You have always wanted everybody to know you as Mr Clark's only heir." Arthur shot Ace 'can you remember look'

"I was way to young back then, Arthur." Ace said.

Arthur nodded in agreement. "And everything changed after you came back from your dad's hotel in Arizona." He said.

"I can never forget what -"

Arthur cleared his throat when he saw Camilla walking up to them and Ace was quick to get the sign so he stopped talking.

Camilla smiled. "Hi Arthur." She greeted.
