Martin and Miranda were together for a little over 4 years. At the 4-year mark the two engaged in another serious conversation regarding their future. Martin was very open about his feelings for Miranda including his concerns and fears. He let her know that while he wanted to be with her he didn’t know when he would be ready to marry her, if ever. He asked that she would keep the conversation between them so they could figure it out together.
This hurt Miranda to the core. She wasn’t so open about this with him, not wanting to bug, she forced a smile and nodded to him in approval. He knew something wasn’t right with her response but did not force her to share.
Although they agreed the conversation would stay between them, the emotions and insecurities Miranda felt were new and were getting the best of her. Martin’s aim was not to wreck her world.

Mr. Grant calls Meredith in for a meeting. She immediately rises from her desk and walks into his office. He sits behind a tall mahogany desk typing at his computer. He waves her in without refocusing his attention.
“Have a seat Ms. Porter”, he said finally looking from his computer screen
“Meredith, I need you to takeover the development team for the Community Social Project. We need new energy to pull it out of the slump it‘s in. It’s going to take a lot of work. You’re going to have to boost the morale of the existing team members as well. They are feeling defeated by all the recent loss and change. You can handle it though. Sue will have the details on your desk before lunch.”
Meredith thought, how in the hell am I supposed to lead
