Giselle's POV :
I put an annoyed expression and continued my conversation with Travis.
"Nothing much." He replied
"It's unusual for you to call me. I'm always the one who calls."
"What are you implying?"
"Nothing, I'm just stating facts Travis. I guess the truths are always bitter."
"Oh yeah? My truths are bitter huh? Like you don't have bitter truths."
"What bitter truths do I have? I told you everything honestly. Why are we even arguing over the phone?"
"Well, I'm not near you so god knows what you're doing with that boss of yours."
I gasped, "You did NOT just accuse me."
"Oh I did."
"YOU JERK! How dare you? After all the years we've known eachother, this is the question you ask me?"
"Yeah? I don't need to explain anything to you. Am I uttering a single word about you and Tulia? HUH?"
"So now you're accusing me?"
"The reason that I didn't suspect you is because I trust you. Trust is the foundation to a relationship. Clearly, you don't have it in me."
He cut the call. I didn't even want to call him back.
He was staring at me with an amused expression.
"Sir, can I go back home now?"
He put a sly face and said, "Yes, if you're sure you won't feel lonely."
"Oh sir, you've mistaken. I have lots of good company to have fun with."
He narrowed his eyes and cornered me, "Who might that be exactly?"
"That is my personal matter sir. It would be better for you if you don't meddle in my personal life, sir."
He clenched his jaw because there was nothing he could say back to me. I stated facts.
"Get OUT of my sight!"
"Gladly." I muttered under my breath.
I took the unfinished files and reached the ground floor. I heard Natalie calling my name. I turned to her and asked, "Hey! What's up?"
"I was just wondering if you wanted to go clubbing with me?"
"I have to go-"
'Pleeaaaaaaseeeeeee Giselle, it'll be so much fun. It'll be our first girl's night out. We can change at my house."
"I don't have an appropriate dress Nat."
"That's what I'm here for."
"Natalie, I have to submit all these files tomorrow."
She glanced at the files and said, "Ok how about we finish these off right now. We wouldn't want the boss getting angry. It's not a pretty sight."
She drove us to her home which was welcoming. I sat and finished those files in 4 and a half hours considering it was 8:20 as of now. I was finishing mine and she was finishing hers. Even though I did it quick, I worked on each file efficiently. They were not as big as the first five. I'm lucky I finished them before hand. We finally finished at 1:00 a.m even after eating dinner.
After we were finally finished, I was trying to convince her into not going, but she wasn't having any of it.
She was showing me dress after dress, but all of them were rejected by me. They were simply inappropriate.
"Gosh! Elle! If you don't like this one I'm gonna put it on you myself."
I rolled my eyes. She pulled out the dress and it looked.....good. It was a sleek red dress. It was just the right length. It was strapless and had stones on its neckline.
She grabbed my hand, placed the dress in it, and shoved me in the bathroom.
I slipped it on and it fit me perfectly in all the right places. I guess I looked.....good.
By the time I came out, Natalie also changed into her hot pink dress. It suited her well. She squealed by looking at me.
"I'll do the perfect hair and make-up for you. Men will swoon over you after I'm done."
"Natalie, I'm not going for men. I have a boyfriend."
"Okay whatever mom."
She did my hair in a sleek pony. She gave me a smokey eye look with black eye shadow. She put on dark red lipstick on me and I was done. As I looked at myself in the mirror, I was shocked. Natalie did a great job. By the time I turned around, she finished off her makeup.
She grabbed my hand and she started driving to the club. The exterior was big and read 'Nightclub'. Pfft! Yeah. like that wasnt obvious. There was a double 'A' as a logo. I entered and it looked so grand. So familiar too. I'm getting a familiar feeling from this club.
"Nat, are we even supposed to be here?"
"Of course, I even have a club membership. Now lets have some FUN."
I chuckled at her excitement and followed her. She dragged me to the dance floor and we danced like there was no tomorrow. I was really enjoying myself, letting go of the pent- up tension and stress.
After getting exhausted, I sat on one of the bar stools.
"What would you like ma'am?" The server asked me.
"I'd love a glass of water."
He placed a glass in front of me. Without thinking twice, I swallowed the liquid down and it burned my throat. I chocked and asked him, "What's this?"
"There was no water, so I gave you a shot of vodka."
"You idiot!" Ugh! I never take alcohol well. It's vodka at that! I already feel slurry and dizzy. I managed to clear my mind and found Nat dancing with some random guy.
"Nat, can we go now?"
"Go where? We just came here."
"The waiter gave me vodka and I took it! Now, I feel dizzy."
"Ok Elle, just sit on one of the bar stools and we'll head out."
I nodded and sat on one of the bar stools. I was planning to sit still, but I could feel the alcohol kicking in and before I knew, I wasn't sitting on the stool anymore. I'm having sudden bursts of excitement and drunk me is always an ugly sight!
Giselle's POV :Before I knew it, I stood in the centre of the dance floor and danced to my heart's content. I didn't know I was attracting a crowd. I didn't even feel that drunk, I just felt like dancing and that's what I was doing.The next thing I know, I was dancing on a table! I was shaking my head from side to side and my hair was following suit. I even pulled out my hair tie. I could hear Natalie telling me to get off, but I had all this pent up energy inside me that I just had to release.I was getting cat calls and wolf whistles which added more to my excitement. As I started to do some tricks, I could feel someone lifting me off the table. I was being flung over someone's shoulder.I started screaming and pounding the guy's back. "PUT ME DOWN YOU IMBECILE!"I screamed harder until I was placed in a car. The car door locked and I finally saw my kidnapper
Giselle's POV :I was cut off by.....his hand. His face was so close to mine and his blue eyes were directly staring into mine with so much intensity. My heart was rapidly beating in my chest.Now, I could see his face even more clearly. From his perfectly shaped thick black eyebrows to his perfectly sculpted nose to his perfectly shaped lips to his light stubble to his strong sharp jaw. I had to give him credit for his looks, but that doesn't faze me. My vision was still hazy, but I can make out my words. I blinked several times when his lips came closer to my ear."Next time you don't shut up, it won't be my hand that cuts you off, it'll be my mouth. Verbally or physically..."What? He got me out of the car and ushered me into his house. It was like the typical billionare house. I guess he's the only one who lives here.He went into his office and got out some f
Giselle's POV :As I started working on my third file out of seven, my boss showed up. I ignored him and continued with my files. I thought he left, but then a shadow loomed over me. I looked up and he was FURIOUS! Uh oh! What did I do now?He slammed his hand on my desk and barked, "In my office. NOW!"I got up and followed him. He threw a newspaper at my face."Open page 7."I opened it."So what? How is this related to me?""It's you in that picture isn't it?"I looked at the small picture and saw a woman in a black dress similar to mine kissing a guy. The headlines wrote, "Is it just the Sun, or is it getting hot in the Nightclub?"Oh my gosh! The media had to post this in the paper? If they're running out of articles, they can just give me a call. Who writes this about clubs? Come on! It's a
Giselle's POV :My heart stopped beating.....when I saw my favourite ice cream stall!! I immediately told the taxi driver to stop and gave him the fare.I hopped out of the taxi and practically ran to the stall. They sell the BEST mango ice cream here. I ordered my mango ice cream and started devouring it like a monster. I missed this so much.I was strolling and that's when I spotted the familiar blonde quiff, grey eyes and black eyebrows. TRAVIS! I ran till I reached him. I thought of jumping on him, but that's when I saw Tulia beside him. They hadn't noticed me yet.Travis was smiling brightly at Tulia. She gave him a peck on his lips, and he didn't even protest! The cheating jerk. You would expect my ice cream to fall down, but I'm not going to let that happen. No way am I going to waste my ice cream on this good for nothing, cheating, jerk.I walked clo
Giselle's POV :Alvador smoothly replied, "Yeah, I did and I won't hesitate to do it again if you don't stop flirting with her. I'm starving."When the waiter came, we all gave our orders.Michael asked me, "Hey, I heard you resigned. Is it true?""Yeah, it is.""Well then, like I said before, you're welcome to be my personal assistant."I slapped his shoulder and said, "Thanks, but I already took up Mr. Armanio's offer."Alvador spoke up, "Are you sure you would want to hire her Michael? She has a boyfriend, yet she still flirts with you.""SHUT UP! You don't know anything about me and my personal life is none of your business."His eyes darkened and he said, "Well, your personal life is important when you want to become someone's personal assistant."
Giselle's POV :HOW DARE HE! He thinks he can touch me however he wants?! UGH! I looked at myself in the mirror and my cheeks were tinged pink and my hair was a little messed up. I combed my hair with my fingers and headed out.I went back to the table and sat down. Michael smirked.He put his hands behind his head and looked from Alvador to me.He started, "Soo.......did I miss something back there.""NO!" I replied instantly"Well, well, well, something most definitely did happen by the look on your face. Your face is flushed, your hair is hand combed and your clothes are kinda messed up." He winked at the end."Stop! My face is flushed because it's hot. My hair got messed up in the wind, so I fixed it. I just went to the washroom, how do you think my clothes would be?"Okaaay, since you're saying. Oh yeah
Giselle's POV :I looked up to see fury held in his eyes. He wrapped a strong arm around my waist and pulled me flush against his chest. I gasped and my files fell to the ground.His eyes were slowly becoming red and he bent his head low enough and smashed his lips on mine. My eyes widened. He wasn't letting go and neither was I. I was too shocked.I pulled back, but he didn't let go of me.He spoke in a velvety voice, "DON'T you dare fall in love with Tito. He has so much on his plate.""Do I look like that type of girl? I don't fall in love with everyone who comes my way. Anyways, what's it to you, huh? It's my life and it's my choice whom I fall in love with. Are you jealous that people fall easily for your brother rather than you? Is that what this is? You did this to prevent me from falling in love with your brother?"Before I was going to le
Giselle's POV :I woke up early the next morning. I hopped into the shower and came to a conclusion. I never really loved Travis. Sure, I liked him, but I guess not in a romantic way. I never felt nervous around, nor have I ever felt butterflies in my stomach around him. I hope I find a man in my life who gives me intense feelings. Moreover, Travis was never on my mind 24/7.He was just okay as my friend. Nothing more, nothing less. After I came to that realization, it felt like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders.I wrapped myself in a towel and rummaged through my clothes. I settled for a lavender button up shirt, white mini skirt that reached my knees, my brown chelsea boots and my brown sling bag.I pulled my hair into a sleek ponytail and put on my lip balm. I took my CV and hailed a taxi. I showed him the address and when I arrived there, my mouth was open. Th
