"I have to say I quite like the sound of my name on your lips," he bent over until they were face to face. He smiled at her as if to let that piece of crucial information sink in. Anelia's breath caught at his close proximity. "Come now, breathe Anelia. I have hardly started," butterflies and even more butterflies erupted in her stomach.

But what happens when two people from two different tracks of life suddenly develop feelings beneath the dislike they have for each other? Will Anelia be able to handle the complications, manipulations and pain that come with loving a wealthy man such as Dexter.

Hey guys! It feels like ages since I last wrote to you all. Firstly, I just want to say how overwhelmed I am by the support I've received on this book. Some of you have reached out on F******k to ask about the lack of updates and that went to show that my work means something to someone out there. For that, I'll forever be grateful. With that being said, I would like to take this this time to announce some exciting news. Yes, there's a new book on the block written by yours truly. If you enjoyed reading COLD, you'll no doubt adore MR KING. Please check out MR KING. Do not fret, COLD has not been neglected. It is drawing closer to the end, that's all I'm willing to say right now;). Happy reading! Stay safe xx
It was six in the evening when the car screeched to a stop near a small cafe in the outskirts of town. The taxi driver had tried to get her to converse, but Anelia had been too busy thinking about the preposterousness of her actions to really engage in the conversation."Be safe now!" The woman shouted, as Anelia stepped on the curb. "Thanks?" Anelia spoke loudly, although it came out as a question. Was the apprehension she was feeling internally so perfectly drawn on her face that the woman had felt obligated to wish her safe.Without another word from the drover, the taxi drove off and there was no way back now. It was too late to go back now. She had taken the bait and travelled so far away to get some answers.Anelia rubbed her palms on her jeans and unlocked her phone. There was no message to direct her any further, so she waited. She had barely taken a step in the direction of the cafe when the familiar tone of her phone signalling an incoming phone call rang."Yes?" She answer
Weeks flew by and things in the Telford household slowly shifted back to normal. Oliver decided to stay, and their conversations became less robotic and dry. Less forced. Things gradually eased back to what had been their normal, asides from Oliver's occasional guardedness that although Anelia found rather cute, she hoped he would sooner lose it than later. It was Saturday and Oliver had flown over to see his parents. That meant it was just her and Natie for the weekend. Macy had finally forced her to take her off days that Anelia had for so long been procrastinating to claim. That meant it was either they spent the whole day in the house or they chose to go out.Anelia knew one thing for sure, she much preferred being out there surrounded by the buzz of people than being stuck at home with her thoughts doing a party in her mind. Which was why they were going to the movies to watch Frozen 2, upon Natie's request. "Nat, are you done?" Anelia spoke over her shoulder, not sure if Natie
Contrary to the stereotype that men are naturally disorderly, Oliver was surprisingly quite the opposite. He didn't drink juices directly from the containers but poured himself a glass instead, always moped the floor when he spilled something and even went as far as offering to hoover the house on some days. Anelia was glad that she didn't have to tell him what to do and what not to around the house. So, it went without saying that she didn't have to avoid him as their living arrangement was pretty comfortable, just as they all were around each other. It also went without saying that Natie was all for the arrangement, he was her class teacher after all and it looked like he didn't mind all the extra questions she always asked him. Simply put, Anelia couldn't have asked for a better tenant. &
"Wait a second man," Dave suddenly grabbed his brother’s arm and pulled to a stop. "I don't think he would appreciate us getting our noses in his business."Brett eyed his brother and rolled his eyes. Though only a few people could tell them apart because of how closely they resembled each other, their personalities were nothing alike in many aspects. A significant one being that Brett was swift to make his mind up, whereas Dave was quick to change his mind."Look, it's fine if you've changed your mind. I can't hold that against you and I'm willing to do this alone.""Well, I guess it's decided," Dave said with a shrug. Brett patted him on the shoulder twice and walked off in the direction of the elevator."You better remember that I wanted to do this as much as you," Dave shouted after Brett who s
Her heart stopped beating for a moment as she stared at Dexter like he had suddenly grown two heads. She was at a completely loss for words as she willed everything to become one big nightmare; she would at least have the chance to wake up from it. "Surprised?" Dexter asked calmly, glaring at her. "I mean, I would be surprised too if someone whom I never envisioned would uncover my biggest secret somehow manages to. My, judging by the look on your face, you must be quite shocked. You're as white as a sheet." Dexter smirked and stood up straight. "Fine," he spoke slowly yet calmly and strolled away and allowed himself a glimpse of the water that spread into the long distance. He turned around, stretched his hands out and smiled
Freda put her hand on her forehead frustratedly. She couldn’t reach Paul and although she didn’t want to freak out, it was hard not to when she hadn’t been able to reach him all day long. She let a loose breath of air as the nerves started coiling inside her.“Where the hell is this idiot when you need him?” She muttered coldly, her anger seeping through each syllable. She huffed and threw her phone on the couch, clutching her head and settling herself on the couch.For a doctor, she felt that Paul McCartney was not that smart and she could think about the different ways he could potentially cause trouble for her. She just hoped that he had not already caused any trouble for her.
“What do you think you’re doing?” Anelia shouted and tried to pull her hands out of his grasp, to no avail. She stopped struggling and glared at him. “Let go of me!” She seethed.Dexter tilted his head to the side. “How am to know you won’t try to hit me again?” He questioned, looking at her with a knowing look. “Why do you easily resort to violence? You ought to know that that doesn’t solve anything. Besides, what can these small hands do to me?”He eyed her hands that were balled into fists and surprised her when he enclosed her hands with his. “See, mine are just way to big. What can you think to do with such small hands?” He raised their hands for her to see.
