I woke up because of the sunrays hitting my face.
I stood up and felt my head is aching so bad.
I massaged the side of my head and wore my slippers. I went inside the bathroom and took a long bath.
I brushed my teeth and went out from my bathroom.
“Alyia, darling are you up already?”, it was Mommy Iya's voice while knocking.
“Yes, Mommy. I'll just go get changed!”, I responded.
“Okay. Take your time. Just go down stairs if you're ready.”, she said before I heard footsteps leaving.
I sighed and starts to look for clothes. I walked in my walk in closet and grabbed a white slit sleeve top paired with a black pencil skirt and a pair of black d'orsay flats.
I applied a very light makeup and when I was contented by how I look, I quickly walked downstairs.
“Good Morning, darling. I bought you pasta for breakfast. The interview will only be held here in your condo since the media is so eager to hear your side, I concluded that the best place to held an interview is here. Is it fine with you?”
I just nodded and smiled sweetly before eating the pasta.
* * *
“So, what are your jobs before you applied here?”
I stared at the man in front me that is almost drooling.
I smiled awkwardly at him.
“Next!”, I heard Mommy Iya's voice shouted.
“Mommy, seriously? Where did you get those freaks?”
Mommy Iya just shrugged before welcoming the next guy.
“Lukas Kramer, right?”, I asked.
He nodded that made me let out a sigh.
For the first time, someone answered her normally.
“What do you do for a living?”, I asked again.
My attention was on his papers that he passed.
“I’m working as an engineer in your company, ma'am.”, he answered that got my attention.
I turned my sight on him and raised a brow.
“So, why did you apply here if you have a stable job? And you don't have a experience at this job too.”, I asked him while still raising my brow.
“Yes, I don't have any experience at this job but I can surely protect you, ma'am.”, he said and winked.
I cringed for a while before shouting,
“That was all of the applicants, Ma'am.”, it was Mira's apologetic voice.
“Seriously? That was the people that you got to be with me everywhere? None if them were normal!”, I exclaimed.
“All of them were just staring at me, wink, smile and drool. Do you think I want to be with those people? Geez!”, I was about to go upstairs when I saw a man came in my unit.
“Who are you?!”, I asked with my irritated voice.
“Cosmos Alexandrus at your service, ma'am.”, he replied while handing me a folder.
“What are you doing here?”, I asked and raised a brow.
“I’m one of your applicant, ma'am. Sorry I'm late.”, he said while smiling.
“You’re sorry but then you're smiling? Annoying.”, I murmured and rolled my eyes.
“What should I do when saying sorry, ma'am? Should I kneel in front of you? Cry? Frown?”, he said.
He's annoying, really.
“Send him out, please. I want to rest my mind.”, I said and starts to take steps upstairs.
“Am I accepted?”, I heard the guy said with excitement in his voice.
“How did you find me annoying?”
“By doing that! Argh! Just go! You're not accepted!”, I faced him and said those words.
“Darling, he's fit for the job. I don't see any reason for him to not be accepted?”, Mommy Iya's voice interrupted.
“I just don't like him. That's my reason.”, I said and turned my gaze to Mommy Iya.
“So, you want to be with those freaks that winks, smirks and drools in front of you? He's absolutely normal.”, she said with a convincing voice.
“And we badly need a bodyguard for you, Darling. Once your issue cools down, you can look for a new if you still don't like him.”
I sighed and rolled my eyes.
“Okay okay. Hey, Cosmos!”, I shouted at him.
“You'll start your job tomorrow. Be here 7 pm sharp. Don't be late. I hate late comers.”, I said to him and received the folder that holds his files.
So, now I can finally rest.
* * *
“Get me bacon and egg for breakfast. Oh! And a Frappuccino!”, I commanded at him.
“Right away!”, he exclaimed and opened the door quickly.
“Do it fast! I'm hungry!”, I shouted.
A Sunday morning. I cleared my schedule for today 'cause I badly need rest after what happened in my life previously.
I was just watching Netflix when Cosmos walked in.
“That was fast, huh?”, I stood up and got my breakfast from his hands.
“What else, ma'am?”
“Let me eat. Peacefully.”, I said and smiled at him.
I was in the middle of eating when he suddenly asked,
“Ma’am, are you okay?”
My brows furrowed.
“Of course. Why wouldn’t I be okay?”
“I just asked. Your eyes are different from what comes out from your mouth.”
“You’re weird.”, I murmured before continued to eat my breakfast.
“I’m weird but at least, I don't pretend to be okay when I'm clearly not.”
That made me shut my mouth.
Who in earth is this man and how did he got the courage to talk to me like that? I'm the great Alyia Lyra Vega! Geez!
I finished my meal immediately and gave it to him.
“What will I do with this?”, he asked.
“Oh? I don’t know. I think, you'll love to eat those?”, I answered him sarcastically and raised a brow.
“Really? Is this edible?”, he asked with amusement in his voice.
“Stupid! What do you do with a trash? Throw it away! Geez!”, I said.
This guy is really weird and at the same time, annoying.
I was about to walk away from him when suddenly, his stomach rang for hunger.
My brows furrowed.
“Did you eat your breakfast?”
He shook his head and smiled awkwardly.
I sighed in disbelief and went to my fridge.
I got a box of pizza, raw beef, raw meat and so many fresh milk. I got the pizza from the fridge and handed it to him.
“Here. That's what I've got in the fridge so please do remind me tomorrow or to the upcoming days to stop by a grocery store.”, I said and started to walk towards the living room.
I sat at the sofa but before turning on the television, I turned my gaze at him just to find out that he's staring at me.
“What? You want me to spoon-feed you?”, I asked and raised a brow.
He shook his head.
I turned my back on him when I felt I was already blushing.
Now I'm starting to be weird too.
Alyia's POV. I spent my rest day inside my condo. I didn’t want to show up at people. I'm sure that all of them are just going to stare at me until I melt. I rolled my eyes and turned off the television. When I stood up and took little steps to my room, I caught Cosmos staring at me.“Quit staring. It's weird.”, I said that made him turn his gaze to the television and back at me again.“What? It's 8 pm already. Aren’t you going home?”, I asked him.I saw him turn his attention to the wall clock. “Uhm I don't really have a uhm..”, I raised a brow when I heard him stuttering.“You don't have a what?”, I asked and went to the kitchen. He followed me there.“Ma'am, Can I stay here? I didn't bought a house.”, he said as he slightly scratched the back of his neck. I sighed in disbelief. “Where will you sleep, then? In my room? Hell no!”, I exclaimed and opened the fridge. “U-uhm… I can sleep there. If it's okay?”, he asked while pointing at the sofa. I got a box of fresh milk and nod
Alyia's POV. “What is wrong with you?!”Based on the tone of my voice, I'm really irritated. Irritated of this guy in front of me. “Did I know that it's going to be flown by the wind? I'm not the God of the Wind, ma'am for you to be informed. So, it's practically not my fault.”And what the heck is with his wide smile? Is he that happy that we're soaking wet right now? That there's a possibility that I'll get a fever because of him?! “If I catch a fever, you're fired! Argh! You're making me more irritated because of your freaking face!”, I shouted with full of irritation in the tone of my voice again. “I’m not responsible if you'll catch fever, ma'am. Am I the one that went to the cemetery alone and didn't bring any umbrella? It's your idea to get wet under the rain, not mine.”, he said once again and raised both of his hands as a sign of surrender."Argh! You are so irritating! Why would you do that gesture at me when your umbrella isn't that good. It is really dense enough for t
Alyia's POV. I rolled again around my bed for the nth time. What he said made me thinking and I don't know why.It's getting late but I can't sleep because of what he said. Darn. After hours of rolling around my bed, I decided to stand up and get a bottle of milk. This should really help make me sleep, I said to myself. I passed by the dining area.Taking steps to the kitchen, I saw Cosmos' sleeping face. Pulling strands of my hair because what he said earlier. It really went inside me. Argh! He's so annoying! The moment I got what I was supposed to get, I quickly ran to my room. Hours after, I already fallen asleep. * * * "Good morning, madam! It's monday! You should get going."My eyes were half-closed when I heard Debbie's voice. She woke me up by calling me this early. I turned my gaze to the clock on my phone and saw that it is just 8:40 am. So early. "What? So early, Debbie. I didn't get enough sleep last night, you know.", I said with a sleepy voice. "Oh my! You forg
Alyia's POV. "You have three meetings to attend later, madame. Also, you have to visit the site. Remember the resort that's soon to rise? You have to visit it personally. As the board wishes.", Debbie said while holding her folder that states all of my schedule. "Okay. You may go out.", I commanded her.After a few seconds, I heard a closing of the door. "Good morning, Cole.", it's Debbie's voice from outside. "Here's the steak, ma'am. And also, there's rice. I know that you haven't eaten yet. So, sorry if you woke up and didn't found me by your side. I just bought you breakfast."There comes his annoying face with a smirk again. Last night, he was acting like somebody else. Not like this. A weirdo. That's Cosmos for you. "It's okay and besides, I thought this day would be so peaceful but when I saw your face, I realized that bad days really exists.", I said as I get the food from his hand.Tapping his shoulder, I smirked. Now, it was him who rolled his eyes. I stared at him, a
Alyia's POV. I woke up because I felt something banging my head. "Aww.", I said and felt pain so I caressed my head. "Ma'am, are you okay?" My eyes are closed because of the pain I am enduring now. The person who asked me handed me a glass of water and I immediately drank from it. "Thank you.", I said after drinking that lessen the pain that I was feeling. "That is a first."When I recognized his voice, I rolled my eyes. There he goes again. "Will you please shut up? Where's my clothes? I have so many things to review and sign.", I said and tried to stand up but I can't. It felt like my body is so heavy. I can't even move as fast as I can. When I tried to stand up, I feel like my sight was moving in a circular motion. "I feel dizzy.", I uttered while massaging gently the sides of head. "That's because you're stubborn."I gave him a death glare when he said that. "I am not!", I shouted and tried to stand up again but I felt dizzy again. Before anything happens, Cosmos' arms
Alyia's POV."These clothes aren't matched for what I will do today! For God's sake, Cosmos?! A cocktail dress? High heels? I have so many tapings and shoots that I have to attend to and you'll tell me that you bought these?", I said as I massage my head because these clothes in front of me is giving me a headache. "I just pulled anything that I laid my eyes on your closet, ma'am.", Cosmos said while bowing his head. "Well, you better go back at the condo and bring clothes that's more comfortable. Please, I'll be late for my shoot.", I said without glancing at him. I feel sorry for him. His only dury is to guard me. Make sure that I'm safe but here I am, letting him do the tasks that my personal assistant must do. Sorry, Cosmos. "Ma'am?"I turned around and saw Debbie holding a folder. "Yes, Debbie?""You just have to sign these, ma'am. Cosmos already reviewed these. All you need to do is sign it. Cosmos stayed up overnight just to finish these, ma'am.", she said while handing me
Alyia's POV. "Ma'am, you must change for your next shoot.""Ma'am?""Ma'am, Ma'am Iya said that you must hurry up. We will be late for your next shoot.""Ma'am, is something bothering you?"It is Mira's voice who brought me back to reality. "Hmm? Nothing.", I said while shaking my head. "You've been spacing out since we left your condo, ma'am.", Mira said while holding clothes that I suppose, I'll be using for this shoot. "Nah. It's really nothing, Mira.", I stated while looking at the clothes she's holding. "Also, Cole keeps on calling me. Should I call him back, ma'am? I think he's worried because we left him at your condo while he's still sleeping.", Mira added. I quickly shook my head. "No. Let him be.", I said while still shaking my head. "By the way, what are those clothes for? Is that for my shoot?", I asked her as I point the clothes that she's holding. "Oh! Yes! These are for your shoot later, ma'am. Ma'am Iya said that you must hurry up and change.", Mira said as she
Cosmos' POV."Will you please stop walking around, ag Cosmos? It's making me more worried.", I heard Iya's voice said to me.It's been hours since we can't contact Alyia and it's driving me nuts. She's in danger, that's what I am thinking the whole time. "How can you be that calm? Alyia is missing for hours.", I said and turned my sight on my wrist watch. It's already 11;36 PM. It's really late and dangerous. "I'm sure she's safe. Let's just wait for an update.", Iya said with the same calm voice. "How can you be so sure that she's safe? You hired me to protect her but here we are, we can't find Ma'am Alyia.", I said as I walk around again. "I got news!", a voice said from the door. I immediately went near Mira who said those words. "What? Did you find out where Ma'am Alyia is?", I asked her with worry. "I didn't but the police is ready to help us in any way that they could. We'll just report Miss Alyia as a missing person then, they will do what they can to help us.", she ans
