Chapter 3

Mr. P or Mr. S

~ Cole’s POV ~

I couldn’t figure out what they were talking about since they were speaking in low voices. Then I saw them kissing each other. Looks like the hot doctor has a boyfriend but that didn’t stop me before and it wouldn’t stop me now from pursuing her. I like her and I need to get to know her. So instead of trying to have Uncle Stan removed from his job I went straight to the information area after taking a picture of the hot doctor.

“Hi, miss beautiful.” I greeted the girl at the reception area.

“Oh hi… you’re talking to me.” She started blushing.

“Yes and by the looks of it you know who I am.” I stated smiling at her.

“Of course I do Mr. Sinclair.” She replied nervously.

“Relax, you can call me Cole. I just have a question.” I stated.

“No that would be too much Mr. Sinclair. But your mother is still in the operating room and she might be moved to the recovery room in two hours.”

“Thanks, Jessa.” I stated checking her name tag. “But I want to know, what is the name of this doctor.” I stated showing her the picture.

“Oh.” She stated obviously disappointed.

“Come on, Jessa, I just need to talk to her about something regarding our charity events. Perhaps you and I can have drinks after your shift today.”

“You’re inviting me out?” She stated totally surprised.

“If you can help me, I can totally find out who she is from the hospital director but I needed an excuse to talk to you.” I stated flattering her.

“Of course, she’s Doctor Roxanne Henson. She’s a paediatric surgeon and her office is on the third floor.” She replied flustered.

“Thank you, Jessa.” I kissed her cheeks and walked towards the elevator.

I know how to talk with girls like Jessa. They just need a little attention and a little praise. I can flirt easily with her to get what I want. I found Dr. Henson’s secretary and smiled at her sweetly.

“Hello, I’d like to speak with Dr. Henson please.” I stated.

“Do you have an appointment?” She replied seriously without looking at me.

“No, I am a walk-in patient and I need to speak to her immediately.”

“I’m sorry but we don’t accept walk-in patients. If you need a check-up you should head to the clinic at the ground level.”

“Do you know who I am?” I asked.

“I don’t care. You can’t just march in here and demand to see Dr. Henson. She’s a very busy person and she only talks to patients with appointments.”

“And I’ll have the hospital’s director fire you this instant if you don’t let me talk to her.” I stated annoyed.

“What’s going on here?”

“Dr. Henson, it’s nice of you to grace us with your presence.” I stated when I saw her. “Can I have a word with? Your secretary said you were busy but you don’t seem to have a patient with you right now.”

“I have an appointment in the next few minutes. So unless you are dying or in a life or death situation I don’t think you are of any importance as of the moment.” She replied seriously.

“Really, well then should I just go straight to Dr. Ellis? I mean he might be more accommodating than your secretary and perhaps he can set my appointment to speak with you.” I replied.

“Fine I have a few minutes before my next patient. What do you want?” She stated as we got inside her office.

“I’m sorry. I just had to meet you in person. You left in a hurry the last time we met and I failed to introduce myself.” I stated sweetly.

“I know who you are, Mr. Sinclair. And I believe you already know who I am. You seemed to have been busy arguing with my secretary.”

“I’m sorry about that. It’s just that if I see someone that I like I’d do anything to meet that person.” I stated honestly. “I’m Cole and you are?”

“I am Dr. Roxanne Henson.” She replied and shook my hands. “I’m a paediatric surgeon and my time is very valuable. If you don’t have anything else to say, you should leave. I don’t have time for pleasantries. I am a busy person.” She stated seriously.

~ Roxy’s POV ~

I was on cloud nine after Mike left. Is he saying the truth? Does he really love me? Or it’s just his excuse to fuck me tonight. Whatever the reason, I have to clear my head because I have a surgery later today. My job is really something that I take seriously and it makes me feel that I’m an important person. Despite the setback of having to inform my patient’s parents that their sons or daughters might be dying, I think I’m pretty good at my job. I don’t even care that I spend most of my time in the hospital. This is my life now. My patients are my top priority. This feeling I have for Mike is good but once I’m in the operating room there is no high I can compare it with. It’s better than love or drugs.

I heard my secretary arguing with someone so I decided to check what was going on. I was surprised to see Mr. Sinclair. I know Claire mentioned that he was in the hospital but seeing him here to see me sent butterflies to my stomach. But I honestly can’t juggle him with what is going on with my life right now. I tried to get rid of him but he was stubborn so I let him in my office before he made any more scenes outside.

“I am Dr. Roxanne Henson.” I stated as I shook his hands. I’m a paediatric surgeon and my time is very valuable. If you don’t have anything else to say, you should leave. I don’t have time for pleasantries. I am a busy person.” She stated seriously.

 “The woman whom I love the most is currently in the operating room and seeing you actually put my mind out of it.” He stated sadly. “I’m going.”

“I’m sorry. You can take a seat if you like. My surgery is in the afternoon.”

“Thank you.” He sat down and smiled at me.

“So do you want to talk about it?” I asked not sure what to say.

“I was about to make one lousy decision earlier but I saw you and I totally realized that it was just me being crazy.” He stated honestly.

“Wow so I’m like your guardian angel.” I replied, smiling at him. “Don’t worry your mom is in great hands. Everyone was so thrilled when they heard that she was here and the female staff were excited that they would see you for the first time in person.”

“How about you? How do you feel?” He asked.

“I’ve already seen you in person before so I didn’t feel anything special. Besides, I only found out about your mom from the nurses.”

“Do you have a boyfriend?” He blurted out.

“Excuse me? You’re making me regret making you stay. My personal life is none of your business.” I stated annoyed at him.

“I have a confession to make. I followed you earlier and saw you making out at the parking lot earlier with your boyfriend.”

“He is not my boyfriend. Actually, it is none of your business. What the hell are you doing following me?” I stated getting more pissed at him.

“Can I invite you for dinner then?” He asked me to change the subject.

“I’m not interested. I know who you are Mr. Sinclair and I’m not going to end up in your fucking bed any time soon.”

“I can wait until you’re ready. So what time can I pick you up for our date tonight?” He replied and I blurted out laughing.

“You’re funny but I don’t think that I’m falling for your charms. The man in the parking lot may not be my boyfriend but he is the only one that I can handle at this moment. I do not want and need another headache.”

“You will never know what you are missing unless you try it.” He stated mischievously.

“I know but not with you. I would never get involved with you.” I stated seriously. “I am not going to be someone you bed and forget the next day.”

“Roxy, you won’t believe what Jessa has been spreading. She claims that Mr. Sinclair invited him for drinks later. That bitch has the audacity to lie to everyone.” Claire stated without realizing that Cole was in the same room.

“Actually I did invite her for drinks in order to get Dr. Henson’s name so she isn’t lying.” Cole replied and Claire looked at him shocked.

“What the fuck?!” She stated after she got over her shock.

“Sorry, this is my best friend Claire.” I stated trying not to laugh.

“It is nice to meet you, Claire. And just to make things clear the only reason I asked Jessa out was to get the information about the hot doctor with us right now.” He stated.

“Listen, it is nice to meet you but I think you should go now. I’m not planning to go out with you and I’m not interested.” I stated firmly.

“I will go since you might be busy but I’ll be back.” He stated and left.

“What the hell was that?” Claire stated freaking out.

“That was Mr. Sinclair asking me out for dinner and me declining the offer.” I replied. “I have enough headaches with the man in my life.”

“Speaking with the man in your life, I saw Mr. P leaving the hospital earlier. Don’t tell me he came to see you.”

“Claire, I can handle him. Just don’t mind him. I’m fine.” I replied.

“Oh come on, Roxy. He is a fucking asshole don’t give in to him.”

“Who are we talking about Mr. P or Mr. S?” I replied playfully.

“Don’t give Mr. P another chance. And I think that you should give Mr. S a chance.” She stated. “You two would be a perfect couple.”

“Oh please, I am never going to be involved with him. I look at him and all I see is a major player. He only screws women around and leaves once he is done.”

“I wouldn’t pass on a one night stand with him.” Claire stated and we just laughed together.
