The crisp morning air left a chill on rosy cheeks as Annabelle laced up her running shoes for an early jog. She had planned on sleeping in this morning, but after the mild argument she'd had with her father the night before she didn't sleep as well as she had hoped she would. They had been having the same kind of argument at dinner every night for the last week, and she was growing tired of the routine. He had been secretly arranging blind dates for her with the sons of his business colleagues. She understood his worrying, but she knew he secretly had his own agenda for her future and she wanted no part in his social climb. Annabelle wanted to live her own life and explore the world, she had no thoughts of dating in the immediate future, let alone marriage. Her eldest brother Mark had been their father's project of sorts, and he was much more obedient than his sister. He had married young to the daughter of his father's business partner - a marriage of convenience that eventually grew into affection - and of course following the nuptials the stock value behind the company increased. The middle child of her family, Jared, had also been one of her father's targets...but the only commitment he wanted right now was that to his precious cars and of course his share of the business. Her mother often complained that her sons had been raised without having a true childhood and that was why they were so selfish. They were her father's proteges so of course he let them get away with anything so long as they stayed out of legal trouble and helped him with the company. Annabelle was the baby, and she was spoiled accordingly but took after her mother as she tried not to concern herself with business affairs. Closing the front door, she turned to a touch screen located to her right and spoke her name on command. Immediately, her weekend schedule appeared and she tapped the friday morning slot. She chose to ignore the flashing icon alerting her to another company party her father was forcing her to attend. Her jogging route popped up in front of her with weather conditions, estimated duration and possible detours should a problem arise. She plugged her cell into the offered slot and transferred the information before confirming her departure with security and dismissing her profile. She took the steps from the front door in quick strides and let herself out the front gate. She took off in a run, hoping to exhaust the frustration from her body before she reached her favorite park so she could switch to a more relaxed job and clear her mind.
