Savannah's expression turned into a scowl as she remembered what Mr. Hernandez did before they parted ways. He kidnapped Charlie, and she was going to confront him for that.
Turn out, Mr. Hernandez was late. He didn't come by lunchtime as Andrew asked Savannah to have lunch with him. Savannah immediately agreed. Mr. Hernandez wouldn't hide from a mere woman like her, right?
Savannah gathered her things. This been a week after the first day Charlie accompanied her with her work. He was proven to be a good company although they could only communicate through paper and pen.His throat's condition has increased immensely too. He could already speak a few words. During his stay at the company, Savannah made sure to help him pronounce some words. A bottle of air ready on their table in case Charlie coughed badly.Savannah bid her farewell to Charlie, who nodded and waved at her. She exited the building, staring at the left and right side of the surrounding, then began to walk.She was so engrossed in her thoughts that the sudden of a hand clasped her mouth tightly made her gasp in surprise. Savannah struggled to break free from whoever tried to drag her to someplace. The person kept dragging her as she kicked, her screams muffled in the palm of the captor's hand.She was being dragged to some silent place,
Savannah did her routine. Coming to work in the morning and waiting for Charlie to walk in through the door with Mr. Hernandez. She'd make sure that everything was in place before that strict man came to scold her.Charlie strolled in a few moments later, sitting in his usual place. A familiar adorable little boy with blonde curls trailing behind him. Mr. Hernandez walked straight to his office without giving any of his employees a slight glance.The little boy watched curiously as he stood beside Charlie, then brightened at the sight of Savannah, who was scribbling down some notes."You are that lady from the other day! What's your name?" The boy asked excitedly, running behind Savannah's seat, jumping up and down. He was sure, a hyperactive little blonde.Savannah stopped doing her work, then facing him and giving a surprised smile at the adorableness. "Oh hi, Sweetie. My name is Savannah. What's yours?"The little boy's head
Savannah brought the little girl along with her to meet Brandon. Skipping and jumping as Amara strolled in the cafe they had promised to meet.Amara grinned as Brandon, who was anxiously waiting on an empty table, turned towards the two. Amara jumped up to a seat beside him and smiled mischievously, punching his arm in a joking manner.Savannah smirked as she noticed that Brandon felt the pain from that little punch. Brandon grimaced, moving his seat a little further from the little girl, and gave her a forced smile. Amara, who seemingly didn't notice Brandon's misery just raised her eyebrow cutely.Savannah sighed, plopping down in a seat across from Brandon. They were at a four-seat table. He began to eye her a bit warily, looking around in case she brought her little army of cats to attack him again. There were none, which made Brandon sigh in relief."So?" Savannah didn't look up where she was scanning the menu in front of her, Amara joined
Just the sound of it was hard to ignore. Savannah rubbed her temples to ease the headache, she hadn't gotten a good sleep last night combined with the commotion just made it worse.This had been a week after she met with Brandon in that restaurant, Charlie's voice had also improved greatly as he could have spoken already. He was proved to be a good company, along with that mischievous little kid, Adrian who liked to prank David Newman. Savannah didn't know why though, but she didn't mind.Right now, David was making a hassle inside the company, screaming to Mr. Hernandez and demanding him to give him another chance.Yes, that's right, the extremely lazy secretary was being fired by the mighty Mr. Hernandez due to his incompetent and laziness.David's screaming had begun to irritate other employees that they sent him a glare, which of course he ignored."You can't do that, I did all the works just fine." David reasoned again, hal
Mr. Hernandez was lying when he said that they had gotten a new receptionist to replace her. For a week, they were in a need of the position, so, she ended up doing both jobs.She wouldn't call him fully lying though, maybe half lying was the better phrase. Definitely, she didn't complain about how it ended up to be. Charlie, for more than two days as of now, had been doing the job just fine.Mr. Hernandez had made him her replacement, which she was thankful about. Her heart swelled in happiness as soon as Mr. Hernandez told her the news."Happy now?" He smirked at her, who resisted the urge to stick her tongue out at him.She understood that it was impossible to make Charlie the secretary since his handwriting wasn't really neat, and he sometimes lost focus a bit on what things people around him had uttered, so taking notes was hard.Mr. Hernandez also thought that Savannah would make a good secretary. He just chose her based o
This afternoon, Savannah had brought Amara to buy her some candies for saving. Janette since she wanted some refreshment, decided to come along with both of them.Amara looked excited as she walked and kept on scanning at the pack of candies in front of her, still couldn't decide which candy she would take home.Janette followed after the little girl, in her mouth she was eating a small candy she had bought earlier. Savannah wasn't far from them, scanning the pancake that was displayed near the glass of the shop. She wanted to buy one for them tonight.Savannah's eyes immediately fell on a beautiful cake that was decorated with strawberry and chocolate. No doubt that Grandma would like them as she loved chocolate very much.Savannah called the shopkeeper and asked her to wrap the cake. As she waited, Savannah immediately went to search for Amara and Janette. God knows how many candies they had brought after they were left for almost half a
It was Saturday, and Savannah was called by Mr. Hernandez to come to the office. She had enjoyed her time with Amara, but Mr. Hernandez interrupted them, needing her in the office for today's presentation.She had forgotten that she got that schedule, luckily, there was someone to remind her of that. On Saturday, employees were still supposed to come to work, but they could leave in the afternoon.Savannah readied herself. After she had a bath, she began to change into formal attire and apply some light make up.As she walked out of her bedroom, she immediately was greeted by the rare sight of Brandon holding Carrick. The grey cat seemed reluctant to be near him but didn't attempt to claw or bite him.Janette with Carrie was another story, she had tried to hold the cat down, but the little feral cat was trying to bite and get away from her hold."What are you two doing?" Savannah asked, noticing Amara who was sitting near Brando
Two weeks had gone so fast. Mr. Hernandez and Savannah also got along so great during that time, even they had some meals together with Charlie while bringing Amara and Adrian together. Savannah was also getting used to calling him Lucas outside the work already.The two kids also got along better, of course, Savannah often caught them giggling while whispering to each other's ear happily. It was as if they were in their own world. Amara only got a few friends back home, so she had none around her age here. The same goes for Adrian, he only got friends whenever the kids from relatives visited.It was Sunday, meaning a free day for Savannah. Grandma was in a nursing home nearby, volunteering to take care of elders as she loved talking with them. Savannah didn't mind, Janette would be the one dropping her off at the place before she went with her friends. She would pick her up later if Grandma had called.Some knocking on the door pulled Savannah
