Giselle's POV :
Alvador smoothly replied, "Yeah, I did and I won't hesitate to do it again if you don't stop flirting with her. I'm starving."
When the waiter came, we all gave our orders.
Michael asked me, "Hey, I heard you resigned. Is it true?"
"Yeah, it is."
"Well then, like I said before, you're welcome to be my personal assistant."
I slapped his shoulder and said, "Thanks, but I already took up Mr. Armanio's offer."
Alvador spoke up, "Are you sure you would want to hire her Michael? She has a boyfriend, yet she still flirts with you."
"SHUT UP! You don't know anything about me and my personal life is none of your business."
His eyes darkened and he said, "Well, your personal life is important when you want to become someone's personal assistant."
Giselle's POV :HOW DARE HE! He thinks he can touch me however he wants?! UGH! I looked at myself in the mirror and my cheeks were tinged pink and my hair was a little messed up. I combed my hair with my fingers and headed out.I went back to the table and sat down. Michael smirked.He put his hands behind his head and looked from Alvador to me.He started, "Soo.......did I miss something back there.""NO!" I replied instantly"Well, well, well, something most definitely did happen by the look on your face. Your face is flushed, your hair is hand combed and your clothes are kinda messed up." He winked at the end."Stop! My face is flushed because it's hot. My hair got messed up in the wind, so I fixed it. I just went to the washroom, how do you think my clothes would be?"Okaaay, since you're saying. Oh yeah
Giselle's POV :I looked up to see fury held in his eyes. He wrapped a strong arm around my waist and pulled me flush against his chest. I gasped and my files fell to the ground.His eyes were slowly becoming red and he bent his head low enough and smashed his lips on mine. My eyes widened. He wasn't letting go and neither was I. I was too shocked.I pulled back, but he didn't let go of me.He spoke in a velvety voice, "DON'T you dare fall in love with Tito. He has so much on his plate.""Do I look like that type of girl? I don't fall in love with everyone who comes my way. Anyways, what's it to you, huh? It's my life and it's my choice whom I fall in love with. Are you jealous that people fall easily for your brother rather than you? Is that what this is? You did this to prevent me from falling in love with your brother?"Before I was going to le
Giselle's POV :I woke up early the next morning. I hopped into the shower and came to a conclusion. I never really loved Travis. Sure, I liked him, but I guess not in a romantic way. I never felt nervous around, nor have I ever felt butterflies in my stomach around him. I hope I find a man in my life who gives me intense feelings. Moreover, Travis was never on my mind 24/7.He was just okay as my friend. Nothing more, nothing less. After I came to that realization, it felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders.I wrapped myself in a towel and rummaged through my clothes. I settled for a lavender button up shirt, white mini skirt that reached my knees, my brown chelsea boots and my brown sling bag.I pulled my hair into a sleek ponytail and put on my lip balm. I took my CV and hailed a taxi. I showed him the address and when I arrived there, my mouth was open. Th
Giselle's POV :I woke in the morning at 7:00 a.m. I showered, brushed and ate breakfast in a span of 40 minutes. I left my hair and rode a taxi to my office which was a 10 minute drive away from my house.I got out and headed to the tenth floor. I greeted Pam, the tenth floor receptionist and went to my boss's door. I knocked and I heard a 'come in'.I went in and he handed me a file. "Go through these quickly. We have a meeting in 2 hours. I want these to be revised ASAP.""Yes sir." I took the file and went to my own office. It was like a dream come true. Living in London, having your own comfy office room, getting a good salary, a good rent and a little distance between your office and your apartment.I don't know how I ever got this lucky. I revised the files and went to the staff room to get a few copies. I got about 15 copies and came back to my office.
Giselle's POV :For the next two months, I always wore full clothes that covered my whole body and I always side-braided my hair. Everything went smoothly. I warmed up to him. He didn't and I don't know what he refers to me as, but I guess it's safe to say he's my acquaintance as well as my boss. I also learned that something had happened to him. It's like his girlfriend cheated on him or something like that.There's actually a business gathering tonight at some hotel and I should really start dating someone. Travis is never on my mind anymore and all I wish for him is that he finds happiness.Nowadays, even though I made friends at my office, I still feel like I'm missing something. My mom is always asking me about my love life and she seriously thinks I need to get married. I mean 25 is not that old right?I hope I'll meet someone tonight and tonight, I will take up all the danc
Giselle's POV :"Why are we having this conversation?" I asked him.Then I answered my own question, "It's either you miss Michelle or you talk about love when you're drunk.""Second." He mumbled."Why?" I asked him. I'm testing my luck."Because nobody loves me."Now it was my turn to hit the sudden brakes. I stared at him and he stared back at me. He said, "Stop looking at me like that."I started the car again and said, "You're batshit crazy. Your dad and brother love you.""They're not my real dad and brother. They're actually my uncle and cousin. They just consider me as son and brother. I'm an only child.""Do you remember anything about your parents?"He banged his fist on the dashboard and said lowly, "NEVER talk about my parents again." After saying that, he chuc
Giselle's POV :Two months later:Even after two months, I still can't get him to open up. I guess I've made a 0.05% progress. The charity events became common and I think half my wardrobe is filled with fancy dresses. I totally forgot and don't care about Travis. My hair became longer. The whole world seems to change, but Tito doesn't change.Tonight is another charity event and my boss donates a lot of money for anything related to children. There was once a charity organization for children suffering from leukemia and he donated 10 million pounds! That's a truck load of money.He actually picks me up at charity events and drops me. I never dropped him again. He stuck to his word on no drinking. He lets me off early at every charity event. Because of these events, he gets more business partners.I got ready and waited downstairs for him. I like him. In
Giselle's POV :I saw the partially bald headed pot-belly man staring at me. I shuddered just at the thought. Would my boss seriously let him kiss me? I was repulsed at the thought.I stared at Tito and I found nothing on his face. Just his lips set in a thin line.Then in an instant, his warm, soft lips made contact with my cheek and I was saved because his sinewy arm wrapped around my waist. My mind couldn't decipher what was happening, but the only thing on my mind was his lips on my cheek. His LIPS on MY CHEEK! I may seem like a lovesick teen who's exaggerating, but that's what he's doing to me.We heard a few 'boos' from the crowd, because they were obviously expecting him to kiss me on my lips. I knew he wouldn't. how can he when he has Fortis's name tattooed on his chest. I mean I'm not jealous or anything, just stating facts.I want to meet Fortis one day.
