Chapter 4

The next day. . .

I watched my reflection in the mirror, while daydreaming and letting my thoughts fly somewhere.

*door knock sound*

I was a little surprised, when I heard that voice. Immediately I looked at the door of the room, and said, "Yes, what's wrong Nath?".

"Are you done dressing up, Alexa?" shrieked someone from outside, who was Nathan.

"Yes, what's wrong?" I said.

"Then, let's go now" he shouted back.

"Okay, wait a minute" I said.

I sighed roughly, and immediately got up from the chair I was sitting on. Then I walked towards the bedroom door, and opened it.

After the door was opened, I saw Nathan who was standing right in front of me. But I immediately fell silent, and suddenly became a statue, when I saw him.

Ah he is. . . always looks handsome, and also cool. A woman, who later will become his wife, will surely feel very proud, because he has a husband as perfect as himself.

"Hey, why are you silent?" he said, and brought me out of my reverie.

Immediately I shook my head, and smiled, "Ah, it's okay, let's go" I said.

"Wait..." he said, making my forehead frown, and staring at him in confusion.

Slowly, he brought his face closer to me. And as if I knew what he wanted to do, I pushed his body slowly, and said, "This is not the time for that, Nathan. Remember, we have to go immediately, because otherwise we will be late".

Yes, tonight we're going to an event Nathan's client. Supposedly, what was invited by him was not me, but his lover. But because he doesn't have a lover, so he invited me.

With a heavy sigh, he sighed and nodded his head, "All right, let's go" he said, who then turned around, and walked first.

Immediately I stepped out of the room, then I closed and locked the door. Then, I walked and followed Nathan.

30 mins later. . .

By now, Nathan and I were at the venue for Nathan's client. And apparently, it was an engagement ceremony.

"Congratulations, on the engagement. Hopefully, both of you will get married quickly" Nathan said, smiling and congratulating the client and his fiancee.

"Thank you, hope you will get married soon," said his client Nathan, smiling at us.

Wait, what did he say earlier? May we get married soon?

It seemed, he thought that Nathan and I were dating, so he said that.

Immediately Nathan shook his head, and made a smile, "But we are not dating, just friends, and just a boss with the secretary" he said.

"Really? So you're not dating?" asked his client Nathan, who looked so surprised and disbelieving.

"I thought the two of you were dating" said Nathan client's fiancé.

"No, we are just friends, as Nathan said," I said, smiling awkwardly.

If I can be honest, I thought Nathan would say, that we were dating. But apparently not, because he was telling the truth. Ah, why do I even wish that? So that makes me feel a little disappointed, with Nathan's answer.

"Why don't you guys date and then get married?" said his client Nathan.

"That's right, usually a boss has a special relationship with his secretary," said his client's fiancé Nathan.

Hearing what they were saying, made me silent, and suddenly became a statue. Then slowly, I glanced at Nathan, and saw him who was also silent.

Immediately Nathan shook his head, and smiled awkwardly, "But the two of us are just friends, and will never have a special relationship. Besides, I don't want to get married soon," he said.

Instantly, my heart immediately hurt, I don't know why. But that's what I felt, when I heard what he said. And my heart ached, not because I heard that he didn't want to get married, but when he said, that we would never have a special relationship.

Does that mean, that I have fallen in love with Nathan? But I don't think so, because I don't have any feelings for him.

"Well, then enjoy this event. And thank you for coming," said his client Nathan, making me wake up from my reverie.

"Okay, thank you" Nathan replied, nodding his head and smiling. Then he hugged my waist, and invited me to leave that place.

A few moments later, we stopped near the dish, which had been prepared.

Immediately Nathan took a drink, and gave it to me, "This is for you" he said.

"Thank you," I replied, smiling so faintly.

Then he took another drink, and turned to me, "Is it okay, if I talk like that?" he asked, looking at me from the side.

"Like earlier? Which one?" I asked, turning to him, and looking at him in confusion. Because I really don't know what he means.

"When I said, we're just friends, and never had a special relationship," he replied, turning him gaze forward.

I immediately fell silent, after hearing what he said. As it turned out, that was what he meant. But I'm sure, if he will ask that to me.

"Hey, why are you silent? Are you mad at me?" he asked, and snapped me out of my reverie.

Immediately I shook my head, and turned to him, "It's okay, I'm not angry with you. Besides, that's the reality, because we are just friends, nothing more than that" I said, smiling.

"That's right" he replied, nodding and bowing his head, "But I feel bad for you, after saying that. And, I also feel, if I already hurt you" he continued.

I immediately chuckled softly, after hearing what he said. Then I tapped him slowly on the shoulder, and said, "Nathan Nathan, you don't have to feel that way, because I don't feel hurt at all."

"Really? You don't feel hurt at all?" he asks, turning his head at me.

"Yes, I don't feel hurt at all," I replied, nodding my head, and smiling.

Sorry Nathan, I had to lie to you, because if I tell you the truth, you will think, if I started falling in love with you. In fact, that is not true. Because whenever, we are still friends, it will never be more than that. Although, one day we are married, and have our respective families. But we'll still be friends, even though we can't be this anymore.
