He gave them a choice.

She took it.

He made her promise two years.

She should have known there was a catch.

“Philip has agreed to employ you in his company, PB Marketing.”
            Amara’s eyes widened with recognition, and Vivienne gave her a toothy, wicked smile, like she was in on some joke that Amara was oblivious to.
            “When you move back to the States, you will be offered a job in PB Manhattan. Of course, you will not be compensated for your work there. You must understand…”
            Amara understood clearly where this was going. They were going to use her until she paid back every cent her father owed them.
            “What will happen to my parents if I don’t sign?”
            Vivienne shrugged. “It’s not something I would know. That’s Philip’s business. I will say, your family name is very well known, Amara. Not just your father’s, but your mother’s as well. Philip can tarnish everything. He doesn’t…how is it you say…stick all his eggs in one basket. Philip is everywhere.”
            Amara’s jaw tightened. She knew how much weight her last name had and how much more would be lost if she didn’t do as she was told. 
            “I have a couple of conditions in regards to my father…”
            Vivienne smiled. “Very much like your grandfather, I see?”
            Her words took Amara by surprise. She had only met her grandfather a handful of times since she was a baby. Her mother wasn’t on speaking terms with him after their falling out when Amara was a child, and the comparison wasn’t something that bode well with her. She never wanted to be in the same sentence as the sultan.
            “How do you know my grandfather?”
            “Oh, I don’t know him personally. I only know of him. Many people do, I suppose,” Vivienne said flippantly.
            Amara stared at Vivienne for a long moment before taking the pen from the table. “Where do I sign?”
            She signed on every dotted line she was told, and knew that, in that moment, she’d sealed her fate with the devil.
