Ben Architecture is one of the biggest and most reputable architecture firms in the country and Leia is their top architect, she conquered projects left and right and Ben Archi will be a fool to let her go, a lot of people speculated.
A few days back, it was rumored that Ben Archi’s top architect will be leaving the firm, as she was offered a bigger job with all the trimmings with Ben Archi’s top rival, Jack Consulting, but little did they know that it was all a farce. Nobody knew that it was all her, that there wasn’t any Ben, but in a world of men, no woman would survive, let alone Leia, illegitimate daughter of one of the top businessmen in the country. She had a lot to prove but not a lot of room to prove it on.
Being already talented and smart on her own, she still studied hard, so she graduated at the top of her class. She thought it was enough, being that smartest girl aside from being the hardest worker, the stigma of being illegitimate, was something she can never live down. Her colleagues always questioned her abilities, looking down on her, always waiting for her to make a mistake.
So she decided to put up her own firm, but she knew that if she put her name on the door, no one would come in. Hence, the birth of Ben Architecture, its elusive owner, Benjamin Archibald, slowly built a reputation for the best designs and quick work. No one has actually seen Ben, rumors milled around on what he looked liked. Ranging from being the most handsome guy in the field to being an ugly dwarf. Leia secretly laughs at this, because Ben’s a mere illusion, a figment of her imagination, one she came up with while building her firm. But he is fast becoming a name to be reckoned with when it comes to architectural designs. He is the best! No one ever seemed to mind that they haven’t seen him. As long as he gets the job done, no one seems to mind that he is an absentee contractor. Quality work within the time frame and with reasonable pricing, who can ask for more, right? So she is quite confident that no one would push into meeting him as long as she gets the work done and she exudes professionalism when representing him.
