I stood in my office trying to catch my breathe.
How the h.eck did everything happened?
I still don’t understand how Jace turned out to be my boss!
Was it him Neel took away his properties?
Sighing loudly, I continue gathering the files I was entering into the system before he called me!
I chuckled as I remembered he forgot what he actually called me for!
Good thing I wasn’t the only one nervous!
I thought he was gonna be very strict on me because I didn’t gave an answer to his proposal! It wasn’t even a proposal!
He did told me he love me but he didn’t ask me out so how do I reply to that?
When I don’t know how I feel about him! I am just having a mixed feelings and it’s confusing me!
He’s scary and at the same time cool to be with .
The last few days I spent with him made me understand the type of person he is.
I just hope I will be able to cope with his presence and to crown it all being my boss!
🏵️ Chelsea 🏵️
” Let’s go already Chelsea, it’s getting dark ” Neo said worriedly!
Getting dark by 5pm? What the h.ell? I know we close from work by 5pm but it’s not that late right?
I can even be outside till 3am in the morning!
” Calm down Neo, it’s not dark yet ” I replied closing my laptop!
I think I will start bringing my own car from tomorrow! He’s such a scary cat!
” Do not worry, you can go home. I am going out with a friend ” I said and a small blush appeared on my face.
He studied me for a while shaking his head!
” A friend? You have friends around here?”
” Well! He’s just someone I met some weeks ago ”
Oops! Gosh! Can’t I just keep something to myself!
I wanted to tell only Charlotte about this first!
” Uh..m yeah ” I replied stuttering! As an elder brother, he might kick against being friends with guys but Charlotte and I are matured right?
24 freaking years, old enough to get married even!
He chuckled at me staring suspiciously!
” O..oh okay , now what did you expect me to tell Mum and Dad? They are going to ask of you ” he said!
Yeah! There’s a point in it ….
” Tell them I went to see friend and will be back soon please ”
” Chelsea” he groaned
” Aren’t you the most handsome brother in the world?” I teased!
He glared at me and left my office!
” I thought you weren’t going to come ” Noah said as I sat opposite him!
” I do keep to my promises ” I replied with a smile!
He nodded staring into my soul! I blinked my eyes and looked back maybe there’s someone he’s looking at but no, it was me!
His intense gaze were burning me that I have to clear my throat!
” You look beautiful Chelsea ”
Oh; I know my cheeks have turned pink already!
He’s the first guy that ever said that to me!
” Uhh, t . thanks, you don’t look bad either” I complemented
” Good evening ma’am and Sir, what can we offer you?” The waiter popped up!
” Water will do ” I replied bashfully!
I don’t wanna order anything and he won’t have enough money to pay!
He will feel embarrassed if I pay and again, wanna eat dinner with my family!
” Just water?” He asked and I nodded
” And you sir?”
” Juice then ” he replied, the waiter took down our order and left!
” So? Maybe we should use this time to get to know about each other ” he said
” You already know me right? I am Chelsea, nothing interesting about me ” I replied bluntly
” I just wanna here you speak Chelsea, I will still listen even if it’s not interesting. I want to know about you like your childhood, you growing up, those memories ”
My face turned sour! My expectation changed into a dark one! The smile on my face vanished into the tin air as tears gathered up immediatetly!
There are memories I don’t wish to remember anymore, the memories I am trying so hard to forget, those painful memories that tears me up whenever I remember them?
What exactly should I tell him? That I became a sx t0y to different men before I could even clock ten?
Or that I grew up as a thief? Or the fact that I was beaten up to stupor several times for running away from being taken advantage of? Or those times I passed out due to the way Martin go into me roughly!
” I don’t want to talk about it ” I cut in wiping the tears that threatened to fall!
” I… I am sorry if I said something wrong pl…..”
” I think I have to leave now, goodnight Noah ” I took my bag and began walking away ignoring his calls!
I need to be alone and let out the tears! I heal me!
The wound I was trying to heal, has opened up again, very fresh!
A date ruined!
🌺 Charlotte 🌺
G0sh! This can’t happen to me! Not now, it’s 7pm already and this car has to just stop working now? In the middle of nowhere?
I stayed back to finish up my work and now this?
Pacing to and fro! What do I do now? No single cab in sight!
Everyone will be so worried about me!
I can’t possibly take a walk home, it’s very far from here and this place seems dangerous!
The darkness alone is scaring the crap outta me!
Oh saviours! I saw a car coming and I prayed silently!
Let the person be going my way please! And on the other hand, I was scared!
What if it’s a kidnapper or a robber?
The car came very close and stopped just few inches away from me!
Why did the person stopped? Oh! To get me!
God! To kidnap me!
I began shifting away from the road making my way to run!
No! I took to my heels immediately to anywhere my legs lead me to!
” C’mon Charlotte, it’s me. Can you please stop running? ”
I almost fainted on hearing the voice! I stopped breathing heavily so as he! He ran after me!
” Oh my goodness! J.. Jace ”
