He’s bossy, rude and arrogant
She’s cold hearted and fearless
I stared from Andrian to Michael not knowing what to do. Why should I even be like this because of Andrian?
“Uhhm…. I will need time to think about it” I said facing him
“Sure, you can do just that”
“Alright. Which drink do you prefer? I will still cook but you should at least take something before then”
“I think I will take whiskey” he answered with a shrug taking a seat at the same time.
“Okay” I headed to the mini bar to take a bottle of whiskey and a glass cup. I gently placed the bottle and glass cup on the table before him.
“What would you like to eat?” I asked politely
“Macaroni and cheese with fried chicken” he answered
“Alright. It will be done in few minutes” I said and left for the kitchen
I dished out the food and took it to Andrian’s friend in the sitting room.
“Enjoy your meal” I said and walked away before he could say anything else
I left my room and headed to the kitchen to prepare dinner. I’ve been in my room since because I’m trying to avoid Andrian and Michael.
I prepared a light food for dinner and went back in to call the kids.
Avery is not arrogant to I and Ella anymore. It’s a good change though but I don’t completely trust her to have
changed. The same blood flows through her and Andrian’s vein so it’s hard to believe her.
We sat down round the dining table after I dished out the food and all of us ate to our fill. I packed our plates to
the kitchen and washed them when we were done.
“Meet me downstairs now! You have just two minutes” Sir Andrian ordered through the intercom just when I was about sleeping
What exactly is his problem and who the hell does he think he is to order me around anyhow he pleases? Hmmph!
I wore my slippers and sluggishly went downstairs.
“Within how many minutes did I ask you to come downstairs?” Sir Andrian asked when I got to the sitting room
Why am I even including sir in his name? He’s just too grumpy and arrogant
“There’s no way I could have gotten here within two minutes” I said staring directly at his eyeball
“You don’t look me in the eyes when talking to me” he said making me huff
I took my eyes to the floor to avoid any argument because all I want to do now is sleep. Why did he even call me here in the first place? As if he heard my thoughts, he spoke up
“Why didn’t you dish out my food?”
“You were in your room and I wasn’t sure if you would eat or not”
“Really? Why didn’t you come to my room to ask me? A total stranger came and you prepared a delicious meal
for him without my permission and you’re telling me you were not sure if I your boss would eat or not?” he said and I rolled my eyes
Here we go again. His bossy and arrogant attitude is back. Is he jealous I cooked for his friend or what? Whatever!
When he noticed I wasn’t saying anything, he continued.
“I want to eat Mole Poblano so go to the kitchen and prepare it for me. If you don’t know how it’s done, check your phone. Call me when you’re done” he said and left
He’s got to be kidding me! This is almost 10pm and he’s asking me to cook a meal of about six hours for him? He must be the devil himself.
I angrily stomped to the kitchen to start cooking, not like I have a choice anyway.
I finished cooking the meal at exactly 3am and informed him the food was ready.
“I’m no longer hungry, just dispose the food” he said and hung up
I know he has no human feeling but isn’t this too much?
“You’re stronger than you think Skylar. Don’t think about this night, instead, think about the greater days ahead.
Just go to sleep like nothing happened and you’ll be fine” I kept saying to myself until I finally slept off
Thank goodness tomorrow will be Sunday so I will have time to rest properly.
I woke up this morning feeling really nervous like this is going to be my first day at work. It’s probably because I haven’t been there for a week now.
I went to the kitchen to prepare breakfast after which I went back to my room to get ready for work.
“Bye Ella. Make sure you focus on your studies and make me proud. I love you” I said and kissed her forehead before releasing her to go.
“Wait up Ella! Let’s make use of my car to school” Avery said shocking everyone of us including Andrian
“Thanks but I prefer taking the bus” Ella said and tried walking away but stopped on her tracks when she heard
the word she never imagined could proceed out of Avery’s mouth
“I’m sorry Ella. I know I’ve never treated you right but can we start over again? I need someone I can call a friend, please” she added making me gobsmacked
Okay, this is weird! It’s either something is wrong with Avery or….I don’t even know. It’s just too much to take in.
Andrian had to sit down on a couch because his feet was wobbling, he didn’t believe his own sister would ever
apologise to anyone.
“It’s okay then, let’s go” Ella said after staring at Avery for a while and they both got into the car heading to school
I left Andrian on the couch and got into the car that is to take me to work. I arrived there not to long after and the familiar feeling washed over me.
The company hasn’t really changed much, I guess I will blend in.
I greeted the few workers I met on the way to my office before finally getting there. I opened the door to see
everywhere sparkling and neatly arranged.
I got in and sat on my swivel chair before going through the things I’ve missed. I have to know when Andrian
arrives so I can give him his morning coffee.
Few minutes later, he finally arrived and I took his coffee to him and headed back to my office.
These few days of Skylar’s return has been hell for me. I’ve been resisting the urge to just grab her and kiss her.
I don’t know if it’s because of what happened between I and Zoey on Friday or it’s something else.
I sat down quietly in my office and shortly, my secretary informed me Skylar was here.
She came in, dropped my coffee and left without saying a word. That has been the usual routine ever since the
night I asked her to prepare mole for me.
I know what I did was wrong but my ego won’t let me apologise. Why should I even apologise? I’m her boss and I pay her so why should I apologise for something like that?
I set out to work and sipped the coffee at interval. Few hours into the work, my secretary called to inform me Zoey wants to see me.
I can’t see her yet, the scene of what we did just keeps replaying in my head.
“I don’t want to see anyone for now” I said and wanted to hang up but my secretary stopped me
“She said she’s going to create a scene here if you don’t let her in”
“Fine, fine, let her in” I said giving up
“Morning” I replied coldly without raising my head from the file I was handling
“Please look at me Andrian, I promise not to take much of your time”
“Say whatever you have to say, I’m listening”
“No, I want you to look at me. Please” she pleaded again and I had no choice
“I just want us to talk about what happened on Friday. I know this isn’t the right place to talk about it but Avery asked me not to come to your mansion again”
“Let’s just forget whatever happened between us on Friday. Please Zoey”
“Andrian… What are you saying? You mean you just used me?” she stuttered and I was starting to feel guilty
“No Zoey, I didn’t use you. I only want us to forget it because we’re best friends. I wouldn’t want something that will ruin our friendship”
“We can be more than just friends Andrian, we can be lovers. Please Andrian… I’ve always loved you and I still do. Just consider my feelings”
“Zoey, what you’re asking for is impossible. Just let’s forget what happened”
“I should forget that you slept with me Andrian, is that it? Don’t you care about how I feel? Are you this inconsiderate?”
“Zoey… ” I was saying but she cut me off
“I get it. To you, I was just someone you had a quickie with. It’s fine” she said in tears and left my office
What have I gotten myself into?
She’s cold hearted and fearless
I sat down dejectedly as Zoey left my office. How could I have let myself loose easily and fall for her seduction?
I know I should be blaming her for seducing me but I can’t just do that. It’s not like she forced herself on me so we’re both at fault here.
“Get me Zoey now” I said into the intercom and sighed tiredly
What the hell am I supposed to tell her when she comes?
“Zoey, I understand your plight and I promise to think about us being lovers. I just need time, that’s all”
How can I think of saying that? That’s absurd! Okay, how about this?
“Zoey, I’m really sorry about what happened and I promise to make it up to you in anyway I can. Ask for anything,
anything at all apart from us being lovers please…. “
Wow! That’s totally cool! I think I will go with that.
“She’s hear sir” my secretary announced and I suddenly became nervous and sweaty.
“Let her in” I said after clearing my voice
She came in with her eyes all puffy and red, she must have been crying all through.
“Zoey, I’m really sorry about what happened and I promise to make it up to you in anyway I can. Ask for anything,
anything at all apart from us being lovers please…. ” I said everything I rehearsed without mincing words
I just hope she accepts my apology this time.
“Don’t you get it Andrian? I want your love and nothing else. I want us to be in a relationship, I want to be in your arms all day long? Is that one thing too much too ask?” she said already in tears again
“Alright, stop crying. I will think about it” I said avoiding her eyes
“Okay, thanks. I will get going” she said and left my office
I’m in a really deep mess!
Aubrey came in with my coffee as usual with a cold and emotionless face. She dropped it on the table and turned
around to leave as usual but I stopped her.
, I’m so… Nevermind, you can leave” I said and she left dejectedly without saying a word.
I can’t believe I almost said sorry to Skylar. I’ve only said that word to two people ever since I was born and that’s
Avery and my mom. Ohh…. It’s three now because I said sorry to Zoey also.
Since when did I become this soft man? Saying sorry to just anyone? I’ve really changed a lot.
Once I get out of this mess I’m into with Zoey, I will avoid females like a plague because they are no good.
“You won’t be getting out of the mess with Zoey anytime soon” my subconscious reminded
Damn it! Just why am I getting into trouble?
Zoey came in not too long after. Talk about the devil!
“Won’t you go out for lunch Andrian?” she asked
“No, I’m busy” I answered within gritted teeth
“O.. kay. Can I ask for something?” she asked lowly
“What’s that?” I asked with my gaze focused on her. It’s not everytime you get to see the shy Zoey.
“A.. kiss” she stammered like it was her first time saying it
“Zoey, I’m busy right now. Besides, I told you I will think about us going into a relationship. I haven’t concluded
on that yet”
“I know. I just thought…… Nevermind, I’ll get going” she said and wanted leaving but I called her back out of guilt
“It’s just a kiss and nothing more” I said sternly
She came closer to me and kissed me hungrily like she has been dying to do that. Shortly, I heard the door open.
Who the hell will come into my office without my permission? I took my eyes to the door and the only thing I saw
was a the back view of a woman and the tip of her dress. I need no one to tell me it was Skylar.
I think things just got worse.
I went to Andrian’s office to show him a contract I saw about a company but when I got there, his secretary wasn’t in so I just went in.
I had already opened the door when I remembered I didn’t knock but it was too late so I just raised my head and
met with the greatest shock of my life.
Andrian and Zoey were kissing and smooching. Like seriously? I thought people said Andrian is not interested in
women so what’s this?
I didn’t realize I was crying until a tear dropped down my cheek. Andrian was about raising his head to look at the intruder so I quickly ran away before I get caught.
I went to my office and closed the door fiercely before sliding down the door with tears in my eyes.
Why am I even crying? There’s nothing going on between I and Andrian. Since when did I become this way? How
can I cry over a guy I know little to nothing about?
I wiped my tears and stood up with a stronger determination. I’m not going to let Andrian get to me from now an. I’m a new Skylar!
A new contract is out and this time, I have to sit tight. The person that gets to win this huge contract will
undoubtedly become the richest businessman in the world.
The contract consists of billions and I wouldn’t want to lose it for anything in the world.
Sadly, the rules of this contract are really strict so there’s no way I can bribe my way through but I’m going to give it my best and make sure Andrian doesn’t win this contract.
For now, I will have to forget about Skylar. I can always have my way with her later but this contract is different.
I still can’t believe that good for nothing Mason didn’t meet with me the day I called him. He isn’t even happy
that someone as special and classy as me is willing to become his accomplice. Rubbish!
Should I call him again? No, I won’t do that! He will think I’m a jobless person, besides, I won’t stoop so low.
Getting rid of Skylar is not really as easy as I think. I’ve been thinking about how to get rid of her but nothing is coming forth.
Should I pay someone in Andrian’s company to poison her or should I just ask someone to finish her off?
Asking someone to get rid of her is not going to be easy. She lives in the same house with Andrian so that is impossible.
Is there any other thing I can try apart from food poisoning? Nothing is coming forth so I will just go with the
poison since I’m left with no other option.
That won’t be a problem because I have friends in Andrian’s company. I just need to pay them handsomely and the job will be done.
Get ready for your doom Skylar. Your life is about to be cut short on earth. Goodbye and R. I. P. in advance.
She’s cold hearted and fearless
After Khloe left my office, I went outside my office to meet my secretary.
“Where were you fifteen minutes ago?” I asked sternly
“I… I went to eat sir. I didn’t take breakfast this morning, I’m really sorry for leaving my duty post” she explained shakily and I felt bad instantly
Are people this scared of me? That’s what I’ve always wanted and I’ve never felt bad about it before but one person changed it. I shrugged the thoughts off and focus on the matter at hand.
“Alright. But the next time this happens, get ready to stop working in my company” I said coldly and left
“Get me Skylar” I said into the intercom when I got into my office. I forgot to tell her when I went outside
Few minutes later, Skylar came in with a straight face.
“You sent for me sir” she reminded when I didn’t say a word
“Yeah. Why did you just barge into my office earlier on without knocking?”
“I’m sorry about that sir, I promise you it won’t repeat itself”
“It had better not repeat itself. You can leave” I said and she turned around to leave but I stopped her
“What was your reason for coming here before or did you come to spy on me?” I asked glaring at her suspiciously
“No. I was going through some things online when I came across this contract. It’s going to benefit our company
a lot and almost everyone are applying for the contract already but I noticed you’re not interested so I will be on my way. Excuse me!” she said and left
Such guts! How dare her?! Why haven’t I even fired her? None of the PAs I’ve employed have ever tried this with me.
I put a call through to the department responsible for making researches on new contracts.
“I want your manager to meet me in my office now” I said bossily into the phone and hanged up
“Good day sir” he greeted when he got into my office
“There’s nothing good about the day so keep your greetings to yourself. Did you come to work in this office or
you just came to while away your time?” I asked still angry about Skylar’s rude behaviour. Sometimes I wonder who the boss is between us
“You won’t get me, how will you? Your job is to make researches on contract that will benefit us but a huge contract is going on already and my own company doesn’t even know about it. Isn’t it just great” I asked in sarcasm
“Get your sorry ass out of my office and bring me detailed information on the contract”
“Y.. yes sir” he answered shakily and left
I think I will be needing a new employee to take over his job.
He came back hours later with the contract and it’s full details.
“Drop it and leave” I said without looking at him
After he left, I stopped what I was doing and picked up the contract going through the details carefully.
Skylar was right when she said this contract will benefit our company because it worth billions of dollars.
I searched for the requirements for the contract and found out it was divided into different sections.
Okay, this is the first of it’s kind. Why do I have a feeling that there’s going to be more to this contract?
I checked the first section and saw that to apply for the contract, the CEO must be at least 22 years of age.
Like seriously? If this contract had been out three months ago, I won’t be qualified because I just clocked 22
The second requirement was having two branches apart from the main company. This is ridiculous!
I dropped the contract on the table angrily and continued with what I was doing. Who knows what the third
requirement will be?
But then on a second thought, I will be losing billions just because of my anger. No matter what happens, I will follow this contract to the end. That’s a promise I must fulfil.
I picked up the contract once again and started from where I stopped.
The third requirement was having a fiance within the first week of the contract. Okay, this is the height of it. Like, what the heck?
I wanted to drop the contract again, but then I remembered the promise I made just now about not backing out of the contract.
Where am I supposed to get a fiance within a week when I don’t even have a girlfriend? I even have another problem (Zoey) at hand and it’s complicating things for me.
Fortunately, Michael is here so sure he will be able to pull out something. I guess I will have to go to his mansion
after work because I can’t risk asking him to come to my mansion again. Who knows what will happen between he and Skylar this yime?
“What’s your business with whatever happens between them? Is Skylar your girlfriend?” my subconscious mocked
“Hell no!” I screamed out loud
I quickly covered my mouth with my palm when I did covered what just happened. Thank goodness my office is
Skylar is causing huge problems for me. Ever since I met her, it’s been one problem or the other.
I’ve never being in any mess with a girl before I met her but now, it’s different. I hate to say it but I think she’s the
cause of my misfortunes.
The first time she followed me to sign a contract, I lost it and it had never happened before. She’s probably cursed or something and I regret meeting her.
What I even regret more is paying her sister’s school fee, I wish there was a way I could get the money back. I’m definitely going to make her pay for everything she caused me.
I stood up and stretched my body. I’m really tired, today’s work is extremely stressful and thankfully, I will soon be done and I will have time to rest.
I left my office and went to the cafeteria. Along the way, I bumped into someone or should I say she bumped to
me? Either way, we bumped into each other.
“I’m sorry” I apologised and tried leaving but she stopped me.
“Aren’t you sir Andrian’s PA?” she asked making me crease my brows in confusion
How does me being Andrian’s PA have to do with anything?
“Yes, I am” I answered after staring at her for a long time
“Wow! I’ve always wanted to meet the lucky girl that gets to work with Andrian and see him everyday. I’m Mira” she said stretching her hand for an handshake
She’s jovial and nice but I don’t know why I feel somehow. Something tells me she’s an enemy but how can that be possible when we’re meeting for the first time?
I shrugged the thoughts off and took the handshake
“Skylar” I said with a small smile
“Can we have lunch together? Please…” she said with a puppy face that made her look really cute and I couldn’t say no
I’ve finally found a new friend!
“So….what should we eat for lunch?” she asked on our way to the cafeteria
“Uhhm… I don’t really know. You should choose”
“Okay. Let’s eat pasta and juice. Which juice do you like best?”
“I think orange juice would do” I said with a shrug
“Okay. So you get the pasta while I get the juice”
Like she said, I went to get pasta for both of us while she got us juice.
“Yeah, let’s eat” she said excitedly like a kid and I couldn’t help the small smile that tugged around my lips
We started eating and she kept rushing the food like someone that hasn’t eaten for years but it was cute though.
“The meal was delicious or what do you think?” she asked
We were done eating already, we just sat under a tree in the company.
“Yeah, it was great. Having to eat with someone made it more delicious, it was nice meeting you”
“Thanks, I hope we meet often” she said with a smile and left
I also stood up and proceeded to my office but I hadn’t gone far when I felt a pain in my stomach. I ignored it at
first but the pain came again with a mighty force that sent me straight to the floor and I muffled a scream.
My vision became blur and slowly, I slipped into unconsciousness.
She’s cold hearted and fearless
I’m sure Skylar must be struggling for her life now but there’s no way she will ever survive that deadly poison.
Mira is my long time friend and she’s just the perfect person for the job. I trust her to do it without mistakes.
Now that Skylar is out of the way, Zoey is the next person I have to get rid of. Because of what we share, I wouldn’t want to hurt her. I will just have to think of the perfect plan to make her stop seeing Andrian.
I wonder why Mira hasn’t called to give me good news. Could it be that she failed? No, of course not!
Almost immediately, her call came in. Wow! Talk of the devil.
“I trust the job has been done” I said into the phone
“Of course! Don’t you trust me?”
“I do. I will send your balance to you after her death has been announced”
I ended the call and smiled triumphantly. I’m the boss lady!
I was in my office contemplating in whether I should go for lunch or just stay back and go through the contract
rules when I heard distant noises. What could have happened?
I moved to my window and saw people gathered around someone lying on the floor. The person looks like a woman but I can’t really see her clearly.
I guess I have to check it out. This is my company and my employers welfare is in my hands.
I got to where they stood and discovered it was Skylar on the floor.
“What happened to her” I asked calmly
“We don’t know sir, we just met her on the floor” someone explained
I wanted to carry her up but on a second thought, I shouldn’t be doing that. I’m her boss!
“Take her to the hospital” I said to one of the workers there
They carried her and took her to a car. I wanted to go back to my office but I changed my mind and decided to go with them.
Who knows what happened to her? It might be that she tried aborting a baby or something worse. I’ve always known she’s not to be trusted, she just pretends to be innocent.
The doctors immediately attended to us when we got there probably because they saw me. They took her to a ward while the rest of us sat in the waiting room.
What exactly is happening? We’ve been here for an hour but no one is saying anything to us.
I wanted to leave the hospital and go back to my company but the doctor choose to come at that time. I will just
listen to what happened to her before I leave
“I’m sorry for the delay but it took a lot of time before we flushed it from her system” the doctor explained leaving me in confusion
“What did you flush?” I asked
“So you mean you don’t know what happened to her?” the doctor asked
“Okay. Sir Andrian please meet me in my office” the doctor said and left
“So what happened to her?” I asked
I was seated in the doctor’s office with the doctor himself
“Someone poisoned her and the poison is really deadly. In a nutshell, we don’t know if she’s going to survive it.
Although, we’ve flushed out the poison from her system but it’s late. The only thing we have to do now is hope
for a miracle” he concluded while I just stared at him unable to comprehend what he just said
Skylar was poisoned while I was busy thinking it was something else? But who could have tried to poison her in
I would have suspected Zoey but she isn’t someone that will try to kill someone. Skylar doesn’t have any friend in that company so who tried to poison her?
“Sir, I have other things to do” the doctor said jolting me out of my thoughts
“Alright, thanks. When should we come back to check her?”
“You can come in the evening”
I shook hands with him and left the hospital heading straight to my company. I’m going to find that culprit no matter what it takes.
I heard from some of Andrian’s workers that Skylar fainted in the afternoon. Why would she faint when it’s not like she’s doing any hard job?
Well, that’s none of my business. I will be really happy if she doesn’t survive whatever happens to her.
But what if she’s pregnant? And what if Andrian is the father of the baby because I heard he followed her to the hospital.
No! I shouldn’t think that way. It’s totally impossible.
Few minutes later, Andrian came back putting on the coldest look ever. I just hope it has nothing to do with Skylar!
“Welcome Andrian, I heard you followed Skylar to the hospital. What happened to her?” I asked pretending to be concerned
“Leave this office this instant” Andrian growled angrily
I turned out and headed for the door but his voice stopped me.
“I’m sorry Zoey, I didn’t mean it that way” he apologised
“It’s okay. Ever since Skylar came into the picture, things have changed between us so you don’t need to apologise because I’m used to it already” I said sniffing
I cast one last glance at him before leaving his office.
I checked the requirements for the contract over and over again and I felt I was going to go crazy.
Why the hell did the company ask us to get a fiance first before going into the contract? I’m just tired of
everything and I feel like backing out already, but this is a lifetime opportunity.
If I get to win this contract, then I will be getting millions every month. Just that the contract is too demanding.
First, I have to look for a girl that will agree to be my fiance for three months. I know the contract won’t even be
up to three months but just in case something happens, I have to be prepared.
I’m so tired and I think I will need to f**k a good pussy. I wish it was Skylar instead but either way, I just have to be patient.
Skylar is mine alone so I don’t need to panic. I just need to make sure I get this contract first. Once I’m done with
it, fucking Skylar will be the next thing on my to-do list.
I went to Michael’s mansion after I closed from work to discuss the contract with him. I will probably check up on Skylar on my way back.
“Look whom we have here, the almighty Andrian. You’re welcome to my humble abode” Micheal joked with a mock bow
One of the reasons why he’s my best friend and only male friend I have is because there’s no dull moment with him. He’s fun to be with.
“Cut the crap. I’m here for business”
“I thought as much. So which business is that?”
“There’s a contract I want to apply for but it was stated in the requirements that I need to get a fiance first. You should know I’m not even ready for something like that yet so how do I go about it?”
“It’s simple. Just find someone to act as your fiance throughout the period of time the contract will last”
“So I should just go out there and pick any girl?”
“No, that’s not what I meant. Pick someone you know about and both of you can sign a contract so there won’t be any complication at the end of the day”
“Okay. Do you have anyone in mind? Since you brought the idea, you should be able to suggest someone for me”
“You’re too dumb. Skylar and Zoey are just the perfect candidates, all you have to do is choose who you want. Although, I prefer Skylar to Zoey but it’s your choice anyway”
“I don’t want them, suggest someone else”
“Really? Well, I don’t know of anyone else so you can as well go to the street and pick a random lady” he said and left
I should choose between Skylar and Zoey? Goodness! I’m stuck! What do I do?
She’s cold hearted and fearless
After contemplating on what to do, I finally decided to choose Skylar.
She’s the perfect match for me. She won’t act clingy and would definitely stick to the rules of the contract.
If I choose Zoey, she will seize the opportunity to give me problems and she wouldn’t want to leave even after the contract ends so Skylar is just the best option.
“I’m leaving man. Good night”
“Alright. So have you decided on who you want or you will just go out and pick a random girl?”
“I will choose Skylar but the problem is, she’s between life and death right now. Someone poisoned her at work
today and there’s a really low possibility that she’s going to survive” I explained to him
“Wow! How did something like that happen in your company? You should get to the bottom of this quickly
because we don’t know who’s next” Michael suggested
“You’re right! I’ve started investigating it already so it’s just a matter of time before I find the culprit. If Skylar doesn’t survive, what will I do?”
“Go for the second option, Zoey”
“I can’t pick Zoey, she will become clingy. I really do hope Skylar survives this”
“Me too. Make sure both of you sign a contract”
I drove straight to the hospital to check up on Skylar.
“Good day doc, how is she doing?”
“I can’t answer that question yet. She hasn’t woken up since afternoon up till now and her heartbeat is really low. There’s a low possibility that she’s going to survive” the doctor explained
“Doctor please do anything in your power, anything at all to make sure she doesn’t die.”
“We can only try our best here. The rest depends on God and the patients will to live”
“I know. Just please do something”
I left the hospital and went home. After taking a cool shower, I drifted off to sleep.
I heard there’s a new contract that Andrian wants to apply for and it is stated in the requirements that he needs to have a fiance before he can go into the contract.
This is a really good opportunity for me. Andrian has no female friend except me so automatically, I’m the only one he can use as his acting fiance.
Luck has been smiling on me recently. First, someone helped me get rid of Skylar and now, I’m going to be
Ohh….. And here comes my husband to be. I straightened to my dress before going to meet him in his office. I can’t wait to be called Mrs Carter!
“Good morning” I greeted when I got into his office
“Morning Zoey” he responded without looking up at me
“I heard about the new contract Andrian” I said and paused to see his reaction but when he didn’t say anything, I continued
“You’re going to be needing a fiance for the contract and I’m willing to help you” I said with a small smile on my face
I’m sure he won’t be able to reject my offer.
“I’m sorry Zoey, but I have a fiance already” he said and I felt my heart stopped. Everything around me became still
“W… What did you say?” I managed to stutter
“You heard me Zoey, I have a fiance. I wanted to introduce her to you all this while but I didn’t know what your reaction will be.
We’ve been dating for quite some time now. I’m sorry you just got to know about it” he explained
I had to sit down because I couldn’t comprehend what he was saying. He has a fiance that no one knows of?
“So what is going to happen to us now?” I asked
“I don’t understand. Us?”
“Yes, us! You said I should give you time to think about it” I reminded
“I’m sorry Zoey but that won’t be possible. I’m really sorry. You’re one pretty lady and I’m sure your Mr Right is out there. You just have to search for him”
“Really? I said I love you and no one else”
“I don’t feel the same way Zoey, please stop making things hard for us”
“It’s fine then” I said and stomped out of his office angrily. I won’t give up on him, never!
Leah is the master planner. I just need to call her and explain things to her.
I sighed for the umpteenth time after Zoey left my office, I don’t think she will ever stop. The sound of the landphone jolted me out of my thoughts.
“Good day, am I unto sir Andrian?” the caller asked
“I’m from the investigation department sir. I just wanted to inform you that the result of what you asked us to do is out”
“Ohh…. That’s quick. Bring it to my office”
“Yes sir” he said and ended the call
“So what did the result say?”
“Ma’am Skylar had lunch with Mira from the finance department and she was the one that poisoned her drink.
The evidence to prove that are all here” he said dropping a file on the table
“Okay, thanks. The next thing you guys are going to do for me now is find who Mira worked for. If it’s going to be
a bit difficult, torture Mira until she confesses”
Hmm…. So Mira poisoned Skylar? Interesting!
This contract is really frustrating. I’ve been searching for someone to act as my fiance but I haven’t found one.
I know Skylar will never agree to do that in her right senses. Besides, my men told me she’s struggling for her life.
I know she can’t die yet because I haven’t had a taste of her, I need to know how good she is in bed.
I guess I have to study about two to three girls so I can know who is still manageable and can serve as my acting fiance pending the time the contract will last.
I opened my eyes but shut them back quickly because of how bright the light shone. I opened it again, slowly this time around and took in my environment.
I was lying on the grass and I was surrounded by beautiful flowers. Everywhere and everything around was white.
Where am I? How did I get here? Wait! I remember having lunch with Mira and then suddenly, I fell to the ground
and let out a loud scream.
What happened after that? Am I dead already or why am I only seeing things that are white?
I walked forward a little and saw a young lady. She looks really beautiful with her long hair.
“Don’t come closer” she warned “Your time on earth is not yet up. Infact, you just started living so go back. Return to earth and fulfill your purpose there”
“You will understand soon. Just go” she said and disappeared
I wonder what she’s talking about. I shrugged the thoughts off and turned around like she ordered.
