I could sense the passion when he kissed her. He was genuinely in love with her. I felt a soft touch on my lower back. There was only one person who would be concerned about me. It didn't matter that I was carrying a board written ' I'm perfectly fine.'
"You alright, Esme?" Livia asked. Her face was a true picture of worry.
I smirked. I was waiting for this. I glanced back at Jasper and Lorraine, "I wasn't sure. When she asked me to be her bridesmaid." I breathed, "It wasn't that bad," I smiled.
"I'm not asking this?" Livia held my hand.
"I have told you. I don't love him. It doesn't matter to me. I'm just... " I paused, "They should tell me," I muttered.
'Things would be diff
' Dean Pierce is my boss. He's Ivan's business partner. He didn't offer me this job with any intention like David had last night. Now I'm repeating. Why didn't I hit him? I accepted this job because he's married and had a little daughter. I don't know exactly her age. But he's married and in love with his wife. That's enough for me to accept this offer. It makes me feel sad that I haven't earned this employment but my friend's fiance helped me. There's no option other than taking it. Frankly, I don't give a shit. I'll prove myself with my work that he didn't make a mistake hiring me. 'I handed him the file. He was sitting on the head chair. He grabbed it and his smile was professional. His gaze intensely lowered on the presentation file.The door cracked open, "Are we l
I had no choice but to join the troop. David stood by my side but I wanted him to join the men and leave me alone. I didn't talk to him, I was mostly replying in yes or no. 'Can't he get the hint? That whatever he is thinking isn't going to happen. Moving on isn't my type. ' "Tell me something about you. Instead of yes, or no." He smirked looking at me. His eyes stayed on my body. It made my skin crawl in disgust. If he hadn't been Ivan's friend, I would have smacked him hard on his face. 'Well! That's not me.' I turned to him, "I don't know. What has Livia told you?" I paused to have his attention. He was already smirking at me, "But I don't feel like... um," I shrugged my shoulders, "I can't give you. What you're expecting. Please... I'm sorry." I said to him, I darted my eyes around. I wasn't interested in looking at him any lon
I smoothed my hand over my yellow dress. I was feeling uneasy from last night. I hated the smell of roasted food. At the dinner table, all the men's eyes were on me, waiting for me to tell them about Carlos King. 'Yes, I'm running away from the topic. I want him to find me. I don't wanna bang on his door and announce... Hi! I didn't forget you. Can I expect this from you too? ' Lorraine pushed the chair back and got on her feet, "You look pale," She added, looking at me. I smiled, "I'm fine, Lorry." I whirled on my feet and walked away from the mirror. We were wearing the same design's gown. Her pregnancy had made her more beautiful. I had heard it but I didn't imagine it to be true. A moment later, Jasper appeared. His navy blu
PART TWO : ' There's definitely a connection between us. ' I couldn't forget her. She was married and off limits. I would never forget her mesmerizing eyes. How her skin felt under my calloused fingers. I could feel it. Her skin was softer than it looked. Regret passed through my chest. I shouldn't let her go. I didn't give a f***, that she was married. Her marriage wasn't ever essential for her. I could only guess it from afar. But it was true. It was written all over her face. I had hardened my heart for other women after that. No one could touch me the way she had. A surge of lust for her hit me hard. But she wasn't around. I didn't know where she was until a week ago. I saw her in Askin's building.
The receptionist guided me to a dark door. Miss Susan, Mr Spencer's PA wasn't visible around. She was a cheerful lady. With a puff of a small breath. I pushed open the door with a nervous smile, "H..." My words died in my throat when my gaze rose from the floor to the chair behind the desk. I froze. My heart began to thud. My skin began to tingle. I had tried to find him everywhere, on the internet, on every passing face, but I couldn't show courage to come in front of him, meet him. I blinked many times. ' I think about him every second of my life. My head never gets tired of thinking about him. ' I glanced at him. He's still sitting there. It can't be. He can't be here. He should be in London. I dug my nails in my
My phone chimed. I grabbed and clicked on it to unlock it. There was a message from Jasper. He was dropping Aiden. ' He doesn't know about Mr Spencer. Otherwise, he wouldn't have allowed me to go and attend the meeting. I'm feeling shameful. How will I tell them? It ended like our first time.' Hot tears rolled down my cheeks. I wiped them immediately. Aidan couldn't see me like this. I shoved the phone on the coffee table. I spun as it began to ring. I thought to skip it first but Aidan might have wanted to talk to me. We talked last night. Grabbing it again, I stared at the unknown number. My brows furrowed a little. I clicked on the green. "Hello," I was still lost deep in my thoughts when I spent time with Carlos.
As I came out of the shower. I heard my phone ringing. It was the third time. My phone was ringing. I didn't want to answer it. An hour ago, before it began to ring, Jasper took the kids to school. I sighed in relief when it stopped ringing. The doorbell rang. I trotted at the door. I opened the door hurriedly hoping it would be Jasper in case of kids forgot something. My eyes rested on an old man wearing a dark suit, "Good morning, ma'am." He nodded his head slightly. "Yes," A stylish black Mercedes was parked behind him, "Mr King sent me to pick you up." He said. &
His blue eyes met mine. I blinked and forced my gaze down. I stared at his branded dark shoes as he halted in front of me."I..." I opened my mouth but we were interrupted by a female voice."Darling! I missed you this weekend," She greeted him in a sickeningly sweet voice.I took a step back and rolled my eyes. She was Meghan Hunter. I had seen her on the cover of the latest magazine that Lorry was carrying last week.She hugged him and kissed his cheek. I strongly felt like vomiting on her Aldo heels.
