"Oh, hell no." she shook her head.
"I think it's time to find a boyfriend for yourself," said Jules.
"Turns out I actually have to talk to boys to find myself a boyfriend. What a joke!" she said with an expressionless face.
"What? You came back drunk, Billina Bernand?" Jules knitted her brows in frustration.
"Am I?" she asked.
Billina had control over herself every time she had drinks. This time she was also sober but her sarcasm was next level.
"You know I never get high, grandma," she added standing up from the sofa.
Walking towards the stairs, she gave a sign to Jules Bernand's personal maid to take her grandmother upstairs to sleep.
Because of Jules old age, she could not walk properly or walk up the stairs and as Billina was a billionaire so it was no such problem for her to arrange a 24/7 caretaker.
Next day Billina woke up from a phone call and shouted. She was hell angry as the clients she was going to sign th
"What are you doing?" she asked with her brows knitted."I'm sorry, I thought..." he spoke turning his face towards her."Yeah well, look forward," she replied rolling her eyes.Fifteen minutes later when he dropped her home and parked the car in her house, he walked to the bus stand.Ashton reached home after an hour and went straight to bed. Time to get some delicious sleep.A few hours later, his phone started ringing, with closed eyes he picked it up and spoke, " Hello...""Oh my God! Your voice sounds... rusty." Clara spoke from the other side of the phone."I thought you were going to say sexy..." he yawned, eyes still closed. "Who are you by the way?" he asked."It's Clara from BB," she replied."What is it, Clara?" he asked leaning back on the bed."Okay, listen to me very carefully. Keep your eyes and ears open," she said. Ashton opened his eyes and came back on his senses."So, Billina Bernand is going
"Where's he?" Billina kept her IPad aside and asked the air hostess."He's inside," she replied."What is taking him so long?" Billina knitted her brows and asked. It's been half an hour since Ashton went to change the clothes and he's not done yet.What, is he a girl?"He's not doing makeup, is he?" Billina asked a little annoyed.Airhostess chuckled while she got up from her seat and walked towards the room. As soon as she opened the door of the room to see Ashton stood in front of the closet, confused.His sigh was loud enough to hear by Billina.She rolled her eyes and walked in. "What?" she asked annoyed.With the sudden voice, Ashton got startled and he was only wearing a towel around his waist. Oh and not to forget the lady just went in the room."M-Ma'am... Ms Bernand..." he stammered shyly.By now Ashton had turned red. She looked at him and a sudden chuckle released from her mouth. The chuckle tu
The jet landed on the runway of Brisbane, the beauty. It is said that Brisbane is famous for its amazing climate.There is no denying that Brisbane of today is a stunning city, modern, bright and opened under a painter's blue sky.The combination of fun and sun is always the main appeal of their city with dozens of galleries, museums, theatres, cinemas and even concert halls.The range of restaurants, attractions and nightlife should satisfy any adult. Ashton was speechless... It was a breathtaking view. Luckily he brought his camera with him."Can I?" he took permission from Billina to click some photographs of the view.In the car, he kept on gazing the beautiful scenarios in front of his eyes.This was the first time Ashton has seen Brisbane, of course, he was overwhelmed.The joy and happiness could be seen clearly on his handsome face. Even Billina had noticed the happy vibes coming from him.He did not stop talking through the ent
"I never saw such a beautiful scenario ever," Ashton said in a fine tone, his eyes dilated to a sparkling blue star."Yea.," Billina said sipping her drink."Uhm.. do you mind if I take your picture? I mean you look so..." as Ashton was saying all this, he felt his cheeks turning hot and red."Look at your face..." Billina started laughing while Ashton took some bomb ass photos of her."Who said I said yes to the photos?" she made a poker face and Ashton was terrified that he made her angry once again.Ashton gulped in horror.. he's dead now. Is he not?"I...." he was lost with words, unable to speak a proper sentence."Show me the photos..." she said dryly.One second she so friendly and another second she acts like she doesn't know the other person. She is something else.Without saying a word, Ashton just handed her the camera and she took a look at the photos.After full five minutes, she spoke softly, "I never kn
"Why the fuck was you nervous around that bitch?" Billina spat in anger.This was the first time Ashton had heard such inappropriate language from Billina's mouth."I-I..." Ashton was dumbfounded. And whenever he was with Billina, his mind automatically turned off."It was just a play... an act. I cannot see anybody insulting my workers. I hope that cleared everything.' she added dryly."Absolutely.. thank you so much." Ashton nodded in agreement.He then escorted her to her suite. Ashton and Billina had the VIP suite and it had a connecting door of which Ashton had no idea.He was laying on his bed unable to sleep, thought of exploring his room.He went on the walk-in closet and roamed around checking every little thing. He checked his washroom which had a sauna. Ashton was speechless.He could never dream of it in his entire life. This trip is giving him so much. He was chuffed. Ashton's eyes got fixed on a door and he wondered what
Billina didn't ask further, because he was not in the position to tell and she didn't want to push him.Both of them went downstairs after Ashton got ready and asked the manager about Conor's arrival."What? Did he come here last night? Why didn't you informed me, Haydn?" Billina was fuming in anger."Ms Bernand.. don't worry. I'll just check up on him.'' Ashton said politely, trying to calm her anger.He, of course, knew how aggressive, she was like a hungry lion, she'll make the whole hotel upside down."You stay out of it.." she pointed a finger at him annoyed.'Well... he's not in his room. He's out there swimming." Haydn informed unbiased.Billina took one quick look at Haydn and walked towards the pool.She looked around to see, a man with perfectly carved abs on his stomach, huge biceps and muscular thighs - laying comfortably on a relaxing chair, enjoying the sunbath.His eyes covered with those black shades, all the eyes
"Oh no, that's not the right thing to do.." he said in a nervous tone, then looked at Billina for conformation."Oh come on. Be a man.. show off your body to the girls." Carlos winked giving him a hint."Or ask your boss only if she will agree.." Conor joked but it offended Billina in a way that only Ashton noticed."He will.." Billina spoke in a confident tone.A few minutes later, when Ashton was standing beside the pool, lost in deep thoughts, Billina walked by and said, "Win that race for me, will you?"Ashton didn't know what to say so he nodded nervously and replied, "Will try my best, ma'am. Just tell me do they have any special move?""Not that I know of..." Billina said assuring him."Go and change.." she added.When changing the clothes, all he was thinking about was the boss had faith in him. The way she asked him to win that race for her.. her eyes said it all.Walking towards the poolside, Ashton noticed all the eyes
"Yes, grandma. I am going to Italy with Carlos." Billina spoke over the phone as she put the lipstick on her sweet honey lips."Ashton is going with me... I don't know how many days will it take us. I guess a week..."A day has passed by and last night was incredible. Billina was given the project she was working on for days.The clients were satisfied and they immediately agreed to work with her.And as the Ostins and BB working together, they were a team in this project.And today after lunch they all were going to fly to Italy. Carlos, Billina and Ashton were sitting at the hotel's restaurant, waiting for their friend, Conor."Is he always that late?" Carlos asked looking at his wristwatch."Always.." Billina nodded her head in agreement.A full five minute later, Conor dressed in a little linen shirt with opened buttons and knee-length trunks, walked in greeting them."Sorry, I'm late. I was talking to a friend.""Thank
