Lucian was on a short fuse. He was exceedingly irritated. The lady in front of him was leaning too forward, her bosom was on his table in full view. It was like she was offering a dish and one thing was certain, he didn't like what he saw.
She didn't even try to hide her intention as if he couldn't already smell it. He felt like sneezing. The instant she had walked through the door, he knew exactly what she wanted and she didn't hide it.
She had swayed her way to the seat, moving her hips a little too hard that Lucian was worried she would break something. She finally sat down as noisily as possible, vibrating every inch of her body.
If it wasn't that he was in a dire need of a proper assistant he would have taken her offer. Not that he was interested but basically his mind interpreted it as free food and for some f*cked up reason he couldn't say no.
How much longer would he have to deal with this? He didn't blame her for her actions, his methods preceded him. Normally, he would have hired her immediately, or worse off he would not have gotten to her, he usually made his decision by the third applicant.
The bigger bosoms often came in first. He ran his hand through his hair, he was certain there were blisters on his scalp. This was the umpteenth time he would forcefully run his hand through his head, he wondered how much longer he would last.
"Thank you," he muttered stiffly, glad this was over. "We would contact you through your email. You may leave."
"Oh, okay." She said stupidly but Lucian knew she wasn't stupid, this tactic probably worked for her often but Lucian just found it dumb.
She didn't just stand up to leave, rather she took her time to do so and Lucian had to painfully watch.
He could have ordered someone else to do the interview but this was a task he could trust no one to do. He liked to think he was great at reading people and choosing what was best for him even though recently his libido had more say in the matter but still this was a task he believed only he could do and do well.
She jiggled them as she stood to her full height, obviously proud of them. Then she slowly made her way to the door, once again swaying her hips in that manner that Lucian fears for her. She didn't stop there, she turned to look at him just before she slid out the door. He would have sworn she blew him a kiss.
Andrea watched with wide eyes as the lady that had just stepped in came out less than five minutes later. Nobody spent longer than that, she didn't think she had ever since a faster interview. That wasn't what she thought of as she stared at the lady who quietly made her way out.
Andrea had stared when she sat across her, her hefty front made Andrea think it can't be real, and then going on to check her flat chest, she recoiled and tried to think of happier things. Although she could not wait for her turn, she was very nervous.
Andrea almost jumped to her feet when her turn came. She walked with purpose, taking each step with precision. Her first thought was to knock but the nice lady that had handed the form said to go in once the person before was out.
She knocked twice and opened the door. She closed it behind her while still keeping her head down and careful. She almost yelped at the sight before her.
Lucian Lyc! She almost screamed. What was the CEO of LLC doing here? She never heard of CEOs interviewing. Even though she was going to work for him,— well, that's if she got picked —the last person she expected to see was him.
She walked towards him with unsure feet, sizing him up and wondering what to think about him. He wasn't what she had imagined, he was bigger, meaner, and scarier.
"Take a seat," he said when she got close enough.
Lucian felt himself brighten up as she walked into the room, for the first time since he started the interview he could breathe easily. He could tell she didn't feel as relieved as he was, she had looked surprised to see him, he wondered why.
She was all jittery because of that but he could tell that she was already calm and for some reason, he felt good about this particular interview. He could tell his mind was made up and he didn't even know her name.
"Andrea…" She cleared her throat. "Andrea Simone."
Lucian's brows dipped, he couldn't help but react to her unusual surname. "Andrea," Lucian drawled. "Do you have any experience working as a personal assistant?"
Andrea jerked at the informal way he addressed her, she wasn't ready for it. She still had not gotten over the fact that she was actually talking to the CEO. She quickly composed herself and answered the question as best as she could.
"Sort of, I used to work as the secretary in my last place of work."
"Says here that you were let go." He replied, studying her.
She adjusted, "Yes, um the company ran into financial issues and went under. Under new management, most of the old employees were let go and obviously me." Stop talking! She yelled at herself as she willed herself to say what she needed to, not what she thought about.
"How many days a week can you work?" He asked, leaning against his chair as he stared. He found her glasses annoying, they wouldn't let him see her eye color.
"How many days a week do you need me to work for?" She asked and he giggled. She thought he sounded quite lovely.
"Mostly Monday to Friday but there might be exceptions." He replied matter-of-factly. "And don't worry you will be compensated."
Andrea was about to do a little dance in her head when she realized he had not hired her yet. "Does that mean I've got the job?"
He squinted and Andrea wondered if she had pissed him off. "Slow down, we aren't even halfway through. How free are you to travel?"
"Like out of the country?" She asked stupidly. She has only left the country twice and both times it was on business trips.
"Yes but not limited to." He answered softly. For the first time since the interview started, there wasn't bosom in his face, he was feeling quite tolerant.
"Yes," she answered a little too quickly and then realized that wasn't the right answer. "I mean very free."
It was hard not to laugh but he imagined it would only increase her discomfort. "Do you have a working passport?" He asked.
All these were formalities but he felt the need to do them himself. He was going to be flying out a lot. He asked a few questions before finally telling her she got the job. His delay didn't stifle her excitement and he could tell she was doing everything possible not to scream out.
"I would send all you need to know and a contract you should go through and sign. You are to start on Monday, do sign the documents before then, you may leave." He replied.
"Thank you," she replied and stood up.
Just before she reached the door, Lucian called out, "Do tell me if you can't make it on Monday."
She nodded and closed the door. There was no way in hell she would not make it on Monday. She took out her phone immediately and dialed Tracy. She did not pick but Andrea wasn't giving up. She tried again, this time Tracy picked on the second ring.
"I got the job!" She screamed in her best friend's ear.
"Really? Yippee!" Tracy yelled with her. "That is amazing. When do you start?"
"Monday," she replied.
"Yeah baby, that's what I'm talking about. We are definitely celebrating this night, I get the day off tomorrow." She cheered.
"I can't believe you had the guts to tell me to spend less and now you're talking about partying." Andrea scolded, rolling her eyes.
"Don't be so stiff, drinks are on me."
"Well, who am I to say no to free drinking?" She returned.
"Alright babe, I have got to go. I will see you in a few hours, muah muah!" The line went off.
Andrea smiled to herself as she got out of the elevator, she felt relieved. That was when she realized that they had not discussed her pay. Maybe it would be in the contract, she thought. She wondered what it entailed.
She would be lying if she said she didn't know about Lucian Lyc's reputation. Tracy had given her quite the gist, one of the reasons Tracy had been reluctant about her going for the interview but now that she saw him up close and personal, she didn't think he was the monster everybody thought he was. She thought he was nice and could not help but wonder what working for him would be like.
Andrea got the email that night, however, she didn't see it until the next morning. No thanks to the fact that she and Tracy had been partying most of the night away drinking and dancing. The activities from the night before had left her with a groggy headache and an increased sensitivity to light.She had kept the drapes down and as she opened them, she wished she had not. Dropping them almost immediately like it had burnt her, led her to roam around the dimly lit room, the bulbs were not an option.Finally, her eyes adjusted and she didn't have to stagger around. Breakfast was her first agenda even though her head was banging like she was hit by a train, her growling stomach was something she could not ignore.She stepped into the kitchen, it was the second smallest room in her little apartment, about half the size of her bed. Aware of the size she tried to make it as spacious as possible. Everything was always in place, it was the one habit she couldn't
She sat on the bed and placed her laptop on her lap, Tracy quickly joined, her eyes bright. One could literally see the excitement oozing out of her skin. "How hard can it be to find?" Tracy squealed, her annoyance apparent.Andrea giggled, totally enjoying Tracy's discomfort even though she was just as curious and couldn't wait to see. As soon as she opened her email, Lucian Lyc popped up on the screen.She smiled a little, it wasn't the company email rather it was his or so she would like to think. "That's it!" Tracy suddenly yelled in her ears. "Click it already.""I am trying, you loud buffoon. Would stop shouting already!"Tracy scoffed, "I know you're just as excited as I am." She rolled her eyes as she spoke but she kept quiet. Monday came faster than Andrea wanted. Although she had gotten more than ten hours of sleep, her body still protested when she heard the alarm. She was going to miss the days when she was jobless. As awful as it sounded it was still refreshing. She could wake up any time she wanted and did have to show up anywhere but all that was gone now and she had a boss to answer to. She sighed and got off the bed, now that Tracy wasn't here she was back to her old routine. She checked the ground to make sure she wasn't about to step on Mikey; she doubted the fat blob would be merciful. She finished in the bathroom as fast she could. It was her first day, she was going to be as early as possible. The first impression was important, she wasn't about to ruin it. She brushed her hair and applied a little bit of make-up, some lipstick, and mascara. She would not dare bother with eyeliner, the chances of her lining forehead was very high. She finished up with a

The boutique Andrea parked her car didn't seem too fancy but by the items on their mannequins, she was certain she would find what she was looking for. She walked up to the door, the sign said pull.The first thing she noticed was the boutique was a lot bigger than she had expected, the outside did nothing to prepare her for the sight she was beholding. "How may I help you?" She heard a voice jolting her from her admiration of the store.She turned to find a lady by the counter looking at her. The lady looked to be around her early twenties and had a look that was somewhere between a smile and scowl. A smile if one looked from her nose down and a scowl if one looked from her nose up."Um, a pair of pants please." She replied. Her eyes found themselves straying again as she looked at the clothes in the sections."Alright, Jenny!" She yelled. Andrea felt herself jerk in shock.A timid petite girl ran out of the sections, she looked to be around the s
She had moved out of the way to avoid blocking others who were coming into the building. The security guard didn't stop until he was two feet away from her. A little bit into her personal space, she subconsciously took a step back."Your tag please?" He said matter-of-factly."What?" She asked, not understanding what he had just asked for."Ma'am, I am going to assume there is nothing wrong with your hearing but you saying 'what' at everything I say is becoming quite annoying."Andrea's brows dipped and she squinted her eyes. She could feel her anger rising. Aside from the fact that she already went through a lot this morning, now she has to face a rude guard.She didn't remember seeing anyone with a tag and Lucian&mdas
Thursday came sooner than expected and Andrea noticed that she was slowly getting used to the pattern. As monotonous as it seemed it was less stressful than her former job and she couldn't help liking it.Dalton was beginning to be a major part of her day. He always came to get her during lunch and waved her goodbye as she left for the day. He was jolly and nice enough that she noticed she was beginning to enjoy his presence.She heard the elevator open. It was break time already, she had hardly observed that time was fast spent. His footsteps hit the floor with a soft tap as he made his way to her. She thought it sounded a bit different but it wasn't enough for it to pique her interest.Still typing away she called out, "Hello Dalton, I didn't think it was lunch already." It has been over three months since she started working for Lucian and it has been her worst time ever. From cleaning after him to making sure he attended meetings, to getting rid of the numerous girls he never seemed to run out of. The only moments of peace she had ever gotten were the first days she started working when he wasn't around.She sighed as she honked, barking curses at the driver who had abruptly stopped for no reason and she had almost hit him. He didn't even apologize as he drove away, flipping her off. "Ugh!" She yelled.She should be in her office typing away as usual but no, here she was driving through the freaking highway because some maniac had refused to show up for a meeting they had single-handedly set up.Less than five minutes to the meeting and she had not been able to reach him.

The bedroom, like all rooms in the house, was huge with an even bigger bed. Everything was in place, only the bed and a few littered clothes were the only things out of place.Andrea tried hard not to think about the reason why clothes laid on the floor and tried to focus on the reason why she was in Lucian's house when should be having a peaceful time at the office, away from his antics."No?" She yelled back, her anger slightly sipping out. "You don't exactly have a choice in the matter. You're the one who set up the meeting, you can't just not show up.""No, I don't want to. I am sure you can make an excuse as to my absence." He mumbled and rolled on his front, planting his head sideways against the bed as he tried to cover his eyes with his hand."Oh no, you don't. G
