It has been a while, but here is a new snippet from Fractured Legacy. Today we have Jonah’s POV.
Jonah took a deep breath, swallowed, and blew it out slowly. Being ordered around like an incompetent brought out his need to push back—argue for the opportunity to do things his way, to make his own decision on the matter. He was the youngest person to be appointed head of an office and he suspected it had little to do with his performance. For reasons he hadn’t yet figured out, the Council wanted someone here they could control, and probably believed that Jonah’s youth gave them an advantage—do as we say or end your career.
“I believe it is within my prevue to take the council’s concern into advisement and make what I believe to be the best decisions for the future of the office and everyone in it, including Kaylyn.”
Emerson’s smug smile grew as he sat forward to interrupt, but Jonah wasn’t going to let him.
“I shouldn’t have let Kaylyn investigate the hotel, but since Carlisle’s files were deemed to be inaccurate and he was the only one in a situation to know what was going on here, I was well within my right to feel out the situation rather than end someone’s career based on unsubstantiated hearsay.”
“And what is your assessment of the situation, Mr. Troyer?”
