ing Haley and Alex.

”Mr. Donovan and Miss Everett, the press are here, ” Alex stated while holding the door.

Nathaniel got up and offered his hand to Paige. She politely refused and walked through the door first at his insistence.

They made their way outside and there was indeed about a dozen different news outlets present. There was a podium with microphones on it and Jamal was holding a large cardboard check next to the podium. There were also two people dressed as security guards that Paige had never seen before. She supposed that they were Nathaniels security.

Nathaniel walked over to the podium and stood next to Alex while Paige stood at the door. She was nervous and didn want to draw any attention to herself. She knew that she had to accept the check so thats why she was out there. Haley would be handling everything else.

”Thank you for coming today. Im Alex Hernandez, PR for Donovan Global. We are very excited to be partnering with Second Chances for our charitable outreach this year. Donovan Global chooses a community partner that makes valuable impact to the wellbeing of others and we are thrilled with what Second Chances accomplishes daily. Now, to talk more about this, let me introduce to you Mr. Nathaniel Donovan! ” Alex exclaimed excitedly. He stepped aside as his boss took his place at the podium.

Nathaniel pulled a single index card from his breast pocket and placed it on the podium. He cleared his throat, looked at the cameras and started talking.

”Community is something that is very important, not only to Donovan Global, but to me. When the community thrives, we all thrive. There are members of our community that are more vulnerable than others, and I believe that we have a duty to help those in need. That is why not only has Donovan Global donated $500,000 to Second Chances, but I have personally matched that amount for a total of $1 million donated to this shelter, ” Nathaniel waited for Jamal to come on cue with the check and hold it next to him. ”Here is the Director of this shelter, Paige Everett. ” He stepped to the side of the podium and gestured for Paige to take his place.

Paige approached, nervous on the inside but you wouldn know it by looking at her. ”On behalf of Second Chances, thank you so much Mr. Donovan and Donovan Global. The impact of this donation will help us expand our programs for years to come. Here at Second Chances, we believe that people have the strength and courage to overcome the obstacles of their past and be the person that they were meant to become. We are happy and so very grateful that Donovan Global recognizes this message and chose to partner with us. Thank you, again, Mr. Donovan, and thank you, Donovan Global, for your extreme generosity. ” Paige ended with a smile and walked around to the opposite side of Jamal. Nathaniel grabbed the check from Jamal and held it towards Paige, who grabbed one end of it. They stood there, smiling and facing the press, for several minutes while reporters took photos and spoke into their cameras. Nathaniel waved Alex over, who began chatting to the press again, and Jamal hurriedly came and held the check for him.

”Jamal, take this and place it wherever Paige would like it. Rhonda, ” he waved, ”have the driver pull the car around and meet me there. ”

Nathaniel paused, looking at a bewildered Paige. Paige remembered that she needed to have Haley escort the press.

”Haley, ” she said loudly, grabbing the womans attention, ”can you please assist Alex and give the press a short tour? Ill be in my office. Jamal, you can put the check in my office. ”

Paige was ready to get the heck out of there. The cameras were making her extremely uncomfortable and she needed to work on a proposal for tonight, anyway. She watched as Nathaniel approached her and held out his hand. She grasped it, shaking his hand and shuddered as he leaned in and whispered, ”See you tonight. ”

He turned around and left. Paige stood there for a moment and finally came to her senses and went inside into her office. She ran her hands through her hair and sighed as she leaned back into her chair.

”Get ahold of yourself, ” she whispered.
