"You are in trouble! Again!"
Ramon grins victoriously at me. "And I have to play the hero again."
I wrap my arms across my chest and smirk, "It's not my fault you can't help but stalk me all the time."
Ramon snickers, "Me? Stalk you?"
I grin at him. "Yea. It explains why you are here in the middle of the night fixing my car."
Ramon sighs. "I am just from Woods Bar," he admits.
So he drinks...
"I don't drink though," he's not looking at me. He is busy using the spanner.
"And you're just from the bar."
"A friend had requested me to take her to drink so I could drive her home..."
"Oh..." is all I can say. Then a question rings in my mind.
"Why don't you drink?"
He stops for a while, sa
It's 2:45pm.Our date is at 3:00pm.It is a five-minute walking distance from mom's place. So I don't need a car.I check my bag one last time. My new phone. My charger. My water bottle. Wet wipes. A pack of pads. A roll of tissue. A pair of sunglasses.Perfect. I am good to go.I put on my round green-ish sunglasses, which I bought just the other day.After all that, I finally lock the door since no one is home. Andrew, who I rarely see, is obviously at work. I don't know what my mom is upto but she's been looking extremely good lately and happy. Very happy. I am sure Andrew makes her more than happy. And to top it all off, she checks her diet and eats very healthily. I saw her in a gym attire today, which means she's obviously working out.Honestly, in my late forties, I want to look as young
"I heard she's mean!"A copper-haired girl in a skirt suit says harshly and then adds."She's also a spoilt brat from what I have heard."The other girl, who is applying shouting red lipstick looking at the elevator, turns to look at the copper-haired girl."I heard she's very beautiful. I just hope she doesn't steal my man. That's my only concern."Could they be talking about me?The copper-haired girl chuckles. "LeBron is everyone's man. We both know that."The girl wearing a shouting red lipstick glares at her and stops talking the entire time.The copper-haired girl turns to me, smiling sweetly."Are you new in CLARKE?" she asks."Yes," I reply curtly."A secretary?"She looks me up and down.&nbs
Damn it!I'm going to be late for work.I had a quick shower and I step out in a pair of flip-flops, a towel around my body."Fuck!" I shriek."Happy Birthday!" Mom and Andrew scream.I almost jumped out of my skin. They literally ALMOST made me pee on myself."Guys, that's creepy. You come in to my room just like that and yell so loudly?"My mom rolls her eyes. "I always come into your room, Mila...""Without Andrew," I add."Could you atleast appreciate us coming to wish you a happy birthday? Andrew decided to get late for work just to do this! We remembered! I know you didn't even remember that it's your birthday today."I swear it did not even cross my mind a bit."Thanks g
I take the office phone on my desk on the first ring."Ms. Clarkson," It's my secretary. "Mr. Terrence is here to see you. Can I let him in?""Yes. Please do," I hang up.My uncle gets in the office, an envelope on his right hand and a black briefcase on his left hand.As usual, he is dressed official in a black suit and a black and white dotted tie.I stand up to welcome him with a casual hug.I direct him to his seat, which is directly opposite to mine.I sink in my swivel chair and start tapping on the table with my fingers."How are you Madam CEO?," asks uncle.I can't help but smile at being called that."I am good Mr. Terrence Clarkson. What about you?" I ask him.Uncle huffs. "Elena wants Gina discharged from the me
"Ramon Darke. Who am I speaking to?"Just the sound of his deep voice makes me boil in anger."How dare you!" I snap."Camilla Clarkson?" Ramon calls in surprise. "I wasn't expecting your call this soon.""Are you happy now?" I snort. "Riana is not speaking to me because of you!"So this is what happened...Riana and Ramon went on a morning date today. The stupid guy told Riana the whole truth. That I told him that she has a massive crush on him and that the whole date was planned by me. Ramon told her that they could never be a thing but they could be friends. Riana was so angry on the phone, angrier than she was about me kissing Ramon. She said I embarrassed and humiliated her by revealing her secret to him. And to even plan a date?This whole date was to mend our friendship but it seems like it made it a whole lot worse.<
My phone rings loudly.Ugh!I wish I had put it on flight mode.It's a Sunday. I just want to sleep the entire day and just lay around, doing nothing and lazying around.That's what Sundays are for, right?I look at my phone's screen.It's my mom.I groan as I sit up on bed, putting the phone on speaker."Mom?""Mila, I just got into an accident!"I gasp. "What! Accident? Where are you? Are you okay?""I am in the house. Please come."With that, mom hangs up.Really? Accident? She got in an accident and she's at home? Mom can really be a little bit extra at times. Especially when she misses me or wants to see me.I hop from the bed and spread it before I head to the sh
I am standing beside the wide window, staring at the view of my office.I love the new ocean blue color of my office. Gray was so pale for a cologne company. Blue is perfect : especially because it's my favorite color. Everything was changed over the weekend. From the walls to the floors to the logo to the carpets. CLARKE is now a blue company. Blue and White.The office phone rings."Yes Ms. Crawford.""Ms. Bridget Banks is here to see you.""Let her in please."I was expecting her. The financial advisor.She's tall, wearing an official purple dress, her blonde shoulder-length hair combed neatly.She stretches out her hand to me politely, a small smile on her rather serious face."Ms. Bridget Banks."I shake her hand, smiling tentatively. "Ms. Camilla
We wake up very late the next morning.Karla is the first to wake up, screaming, shouting and swearing her boss will skin her alive. She has a quick shower, borrows one of my new numerous skirtsuits and heels. She then borrows my blue Ferrari, saying she will return it tonight or tomorrow. She waves us all goodbye before she bolts out of the room.I am left with Riana who is in no rush whatsoever and she's the last to have a shower.Before I go to bath, I call Ms. Crawford, my secretary saying I will be running in late for work today so she should move the morning meeting to the afternoon.Just as I am getting prepared, stupid Jace calls. I am tempted to not pick up but I end up receiving the call."Hey.""Hey.""Sorry for calling. I just thought I should say thank you for what you're doing for Hannah. You have a
