A short snippet of a new WIP. Marriage of Convenience Series Book One. Title: TBA Release date: TBA NOT EDITED
“Your highness, this is your itinerary for your trip to New York,” Thornton said pulling him from his thoughts and handing his a stack of papers.
“New York?” he asked in confusion.
“Yes, your highness, did you already forget? It’s been on your schedule for months.”
Thornton sighed. “Your father will not be able to attend the states delegation meeting and ordered you to attend in his stead.”
Remington was about to get upset at the thought that his father had ordered him when he really hated it. He was twenty-five for crying out loud. But then he realized that this was the break he might need. “How long is this affair?”
Thornton looked down at his notes. “We should be there for one week.”
“Add another week,” Remington told him.
“Why your highness?”
“Do I need to explain myself Thorn?”
“No your highness. I will see to your wishes.”
“Very well, now leave me alone, there are things I need to see to before I meet with my father later today. No doubt he’ll have a lecture prepared.”
“But, your highness, we are not done going over your schedule.”
“For heavens sake, Thorn, I am quite certain that you will remind me of where I need to be in aan appropriate time. And for blasted sake, stop calling me your highness, I’ve told you to call me Remy like everyone else when we’re alone. Besides we’ve been friends for far too long to stand on ceremony.”
Thorn stared at him before nodding. He looked down at the papers in his hand before looking back up at him. “Are you going to call him sir?”
Remington knew that Thornton was taking about Fabian. Thornton’s had a crush on Fabian since they were kids. “I am, do you have a problem with seeing him.” Thornton had told Fabian how he felt but his best friend like an idiot turned the man down. As far as Remington knew they hadn’t spoke to each other since Fabian left for the states.
