He ran his right hand through his hair, messing it up. “I’ve dealt with Ealey before. I knew that he would play that cat and mouse game with you for another twenty minutes. If I moved my pawn when I did, I could block his shot. You got what you wanted, and you’re right, it was underhanded, but it’s done, and there’s nothing to do about it now. You got him on the show.” He wasn’t mad, but he definitely wasn’t happy with my outburst. “I know you can take care of yourself, now. But I didn’t know how you’d react.” He started to move away from me.
“You don’t undermine how I do my work,” I made it a point of poking his chest as I said every word. Breathing hard. “And make me look like an incompetent fool. Don’t forget that I went through four years of college to do what I’m doing.” I saw him flinch at my remark, but I was too angry to think of anything else to say.
Matthew stared at me, his face bright red with the fury I felt a few minutes ago. He was millimeters from my face as he growled, “Don’t you dare throw that education crap at me. I’ve made more money in the four years you’ve been in school making nothing and spending Daddy’s money. I work hard for Joey, and it pays off. I may not have a goddamn degree, but I’m successful in my own right. And if I’m not mistaken, he is your first fucking client. So don’t you go all ‘holier than thou’ on me.” I knew he was hurt, but I couldn’t allow him to railroad me with my client. I didn’t give a shit if he had dealt with Ealey before.
He started to stalk away from me, but I grabbed his arm and spun him around. “You don’t get to be an arrogant asshole to me either. I’m doing my job, and I know what the fuck,” I growled at him, “I’m doing.” I fought off a gulp. I couldn’t let him know that I doubted myself. Now was not the time to show weakness. “If you don’t like how I handle myself, then I’ll just go about this alone.”
Matthew was breathing hard and staring down at me, then glancing at my hand that was still on his arm. I quickly dropped my hand and retreated back, softening my stance a bit. We weren’t getting anywhere by fighting, and we were on the same team. It was time to start acting like it. “We need to work together.” Trying to sound like I meant it. “Fighting is going to get us nowhere.”
Matthew looked down at the ground, kicking a pebble on the concrete. I wasn’t exactly sure what was going through his head, but I stood by what I said. If I wanted to be able to deal with Joey, we had to be on the same page.
