Ivana tried Reece's number but he didn't pick up, "Please," She muttered as she dialed again. she paced across the room in frustration.There was a knock on her door she rolled her eyes and shouted as soon as she opened the door, "I told you to leave me alone!""Oh, sorry," The girl flinched."I'm sorry, Samuel, I thought it was... I'm really sorry," Ivana apologized."It's okay," the girl managed to smile at her. "Did you need something?" Ivana asked her."Hmm, we're having the barbeque, so I came to call you," She shrugged."Yes, I'll be there, thank you," Ivana nodded with a smile.Reaching the lawn, they had prepared the table outside and were grilling the meat, her eyes wandered around searching for Reece, when she didn't find him she heaved a sigh in disappointment, "Boss, here!" A guy from their group waved. Ivana lifted her face and saw Reece coming their way, her face lit up at his si
He leaned back on his chair and answered, "It's you I'm in love with," He confessed."Heh?" She shouted in horror as she jumped up from her seat."No, no, that's not possible, we've only met for like three times?" She frowned, "It's Ivana, definitely her," She tried to convince him. "Let's do this again, hmm?"
Arielle packed her clothes in a small bag as they were going for a two day trip to the countryside as Reece had to go on a meeting with a client there, she got changed into a white shirt and blue jeans pant, she adorned a black jeans jacket she then turned her head to the empty bed and sighed, she hadn't seen her boss since she woke up, last night she had asked him to go with her and help her patch things up between Reece and Ivana, but he flatly refused and went to sleep. She had called Ivana, even she refused to listen to her, "At this rate looks like I'm going to end up getting married to Reece," She heaved a sigh in frustration.
After Reece and Ivana were out of the meeting room, Arielle rushed to them, "Work's done, now let's go have some fun!" She cheered. "Let's go on a hike," She pointed at the tall hill opposite to the resort."Let them breathe first," Eiden passed a taunt as he walked and stood beside her, "Let's have the breakfast first?" He suggested. Arielle's stomach growled in response, Eiden chuckled, "Miss forever hungry," He poked his finger on her forehead. "Hehe," She smiled meekly.At the breakfast table, Arielle prepared the plates for her main leads as they were sitting next to each other turning their faces away, "Here, have this, Reece," She placed the plate in front of him, "And this is for Ivana," She placed another plate on the table and smiled at them."Thanks," Reece smiled back at her."Ahem," Eiden cleared his throat as he eyed them in disapproval."Let me get yours too boss," She smiled at Eiden and rushed to
While Eiden and Arielle raced ahead, Reece and Ivana were left behind. The awkwardness in the air was suffocating, Reece decided to take an initiative, "Hmm," He cleared his throat, he was about to say something but Ivana speeded her pace."Hey!" Reece called out to her as he jogged to her side, "can we please talk?" He asked her, without giving him a single look she continued climbing up.
"hey!" Reece called out to Ivana but she refused to listen, she just marched ahead. Reece heaved a sigh as he gave up on trying to make a conversation with her, he just followed her quietly."We're just going around in circles, just where is this place?" Ivana kicked a tree in frustration.Reece shook his head as he watched her vent her anger on the poor tree, he clicked his tongue, "Tsk, Tsk."She snapped her head in his direction and glared at him. He just shrugged and roamed his eyes anywhere but to meet her gaze. She rolled her eyes and looked at the trail in front of her, she heaved a sigh before continuing on the path.After a few hours of going around in a circle, she covered her eyes from the glare of the sun, she wiped the sweat from her forehead and sat down on the shade as she leaned against the tree.Reece walked to her and offered her the water bottle, she turned her head away, he squatted to her level and
After a sleepless night, they all gathered for the breakfast, Arielle rubbed her eyes, she shook her head trying to keep herself awake, after placing the foods on her plate, she turned to go but almost bumped into someone, "Sorry," She looked up only to meet eyes with the one she wanted to avoid. "Boss," She muttered before averting her gaze before he could speak a word, she slipped away.Ivana turned around and seeing their interaction, she narrowed her eyes, Eiden heaved a sigh and took his plate, he then saw Ivana giving him a weird look, "Good morning?" He raised a brow."Good morning," She replied with a smile but her smile vanished as soon as she saw Reece coming their way, Seeing her Reece's face broke into a smile he opened his mouth to say something, "Excuse me," She ran away before Reece could utter a word.Reece let out a deep sigh.***While returning, Arielle wanted to ask Ivana to join her in the back seat but when E
After Ivana left, Arielle was left alone with her thoughts, she sighed as she went back to her bed, skipping her breakfast. After spending the entire morning inside her bed when her stomach asked for food, she dragged herself out of the bed and made her way to the kitchen, she sat with her plate in front of her but despite being hungry she had no interest in the food, she had been picking on it. She had her elbow on the table with her chin in her hand. She heaved a deep sigh.She closed her eyes but her eyes shot open when she heard his voice, "Ms. Forever hungry, why are you picking on your food?"She blinked at her boss who was sitting opposite her, "What are you..." She then trailed off, she closed her eyes and shook her head, when she opened them, he was gone."Whoa!" Arielle got goosebumps. "I need some glucose in my system, I've started hallucinating!" She grabbed her spoon and stuffed the heated waffle inside her mouth.After fini
