She slowly made her way back to the room, worried that Lucian would still be in the same state that she left him. They were already twenty minutes late, she wondered how they were going to make it to the meeting without finding all the investors gone.
She had told the Manager to try to stall long enough for her to get him to the company but she wondered how long he would be able to stall. She got to the door and carefully turned the knob, her heart in her throat.
The sight before her left her stunned that all she could do was close the door as quietly as she could. She didn't want to make too much noise. The bed had been empty and there was only one reason for that, Lucian had gotten out of bed.
She heaved a sigh of relief and leaned against the wall. Her legs slowly began to lose their grip and she sank to her butt
Andrea was grateful she was not the one driving; she would have been too edgy. However, getting a ride to the meeting also meant she would have to come back to get her car but it was better this way. She did not trust that Lucian would not ask the driver to take him elsewhere. It would not be the first time."Whatever memory you are thinking of, staring at me like that would not change it," Lucian said suddenly, his smirk wide.She raised her upper lips, sneering at him then scoffed and turned her face away. She wished the car would move even faster but she had already told the driver to speed up, any more speed and it would be illegal.She wondered what joy he got out of making this difficult for both of them. It was exhausting. A lot of times she had thought of giving up but the pay was too good and not to talk about the convention that was coming up in less than a month. No matter what happened, she had to make sure she attended. Lucian was a sure ticket to attend the convention s
Andrea squinted her eyes, here she thought she would finally get some time to rest before the jarring schedule of the day. She knew she had no excuse and even if there was any she could think of, the fact that Lucian wanted her to join the meeting was enough to scrap all her excuses.“Can I say no?”He shook his head, “Don’t be a sourpuss.” He muttered and threw the door open. “After you, miss.” He gave a mock bow as he held the door open.Andrea swore to the heavens but she took the step towards the conference room. What other option did she have? She walked past him through the open door and made her way into the conference room.“I heard you,” Lucian whispered directly into her ears as he walked past her towards the table.The room was mostly empty and the only occupants were two gentlemen, one looked relatively older than the other and they both stared at them as they walked in.“My apologies for keeping you waiting,” Lucian announced.“It is no problem,” the older of the gentleme
“I can be convinced to attend a total of three meetings.”As soon as the words left his mouth, Andrea knew the family was completely sold. She sighed, this was not the first time she had seen him in action but it was still mesmerizing to watch. His confidence was one of the things she loved about him. Not to mention, his quick decision-making. He knew exactly what he wanted and never bent for the other person.“Deal.” Mr. Pattinson yelled out.Andrea could not blame him, Lucian was a busy man and if there was anything he hated, it was meetings. Getting three out of him was unheard of.Lucian grinned and rose to his feet with his hands stretched out. “As soon as you have the contract ready, you may send it.”“Thank you, Lucian,” Felix said as he grabbed Lucian's open palm.“It was nice doing business with you,” Lucian muttered and began walking out, Andrea wasted no time in grabbing her phone and rushing after him.Lucian held the door open for her. “Thank you.” She mumbled and rushed
Lucian did not take his eyes off her, he did not want to miss any tell in her expression. Andrea was as open as a book though there were a few times he could not guess what was going in her head but one thing he was sure of was she sucked at lying. “I am not going to let it go Andrea and as you know I tend to get what I want.” At first, he had been teasing about wanting to know what she was thinking about but the longer this dragged on, the more curious he became. She had been quiet during the ride and he had wanted to have a conversation. At that moment he had not really cared what he had been thinking about but right now he was completely invested and he knew he would not let it go unless he found out. “Fine, I did promise and unlike you, I keep my word.” Lucian faked a gasp. “What does that even mean?” “You said you want to know what I was thinking about in the car.” “Exactly! So you did know what I was talking about?” “Well, I was thinking about the first time I saw Lillian
