The working hour would usually start at eight o'clock but today Josh come to his office an hour before the work will start, deep inside him he anticipated her this time. From the last time, they meet she is always in his mind. Sipping his coffee while occationally looking outside his wall to ceiling window, he leans his back in his chair.
Cass is standing on the roadside a few meters away from her apartment waiting for a taxi to pass by, after a minute of waiting finally she hailed the taxi and got inside. She told the driver where she is going, when she arrived at the huge building of Stanley manufacturing she can't deny to herself that she was in awe and almost can't believe that she would be working in this company from now on. Upon arriving she trotted towards the front desk, but before she could speak the person in charge smiled then greet her politely, " Good morning Miss may I know who is your name please?" Cass answered," Goodmorning, I am Cass Lim...", but before she could finish the person opposite her interupted, " Mr. Stanley is waiting for you in his office, this way please mam". She just nods her head then follows the way pointed by the front desk.
A knock on the door was heard by the person inside so he just," come in" Josh said void with emotion in his tone. The door opens from outside then there is the face of his secretary. " Goodmorning sir, Miss Lim is already here " then after that Mr. Morris bow his head then leave without looking back to his boss. Cass was stunned to see him, she doesn't know how to react this time around. The moment she came back to her mind," Mr. Stanley, Goodmorning", she mumbled with her head down. "Goodmorning Ms. Lim", he responds with a slight smile on his lips. " I see that you have excellent school degrees so I decided to try hiring you for this job, and I believe Miss Lim would not disappoint me right?". He said with a friendly tone and slightly raised eyebrows. " Thank you for considering me sir and I appreciate it. Don't worry I won't let you down, Mr. Stanley". Said Cass with confidence in her tone. Josh, staring at her from the moment she entered, showed a rear smile;" I'm looking for that Miss Lim, I hope we have a wonderful time working together in the future." Cass was feeling overwhelmed by what she heard just purse her lips and nodded like a chicken picking food. " So I'd like to personally bring you to your office, it's next door since your my Executive Assistant." Josh humbly gestures her to follow in the next room. He personally opens the door then signals her to go in first before him. " This is your office, you can now settle your things and start working since today is the first day you can just familiarize the company's daily events, I should go now, and good luck." He then turns back to his office with satisfaction that is written on his face. When the door closes from outside Cass look around her then lets out a long sigh," This is it Cass, the first step of your dream." she mumbled by herself.
The day passes by as quickly as blinking your eyes, it's 4:30 in the afternoon and it's the time that the employees were ready to set off to go home. Cass who is tidying her table before going out was startled by the sound of the intercom. She presses it then " Yes? what can I do for you Mr. Stanley?" she politely asks. "Hmm, are you going home Miss Lim?" ask the other line. Then she said," Yes, Sir I am...do you have something for me to do sir?" the other line did not answer immediately but did not hang up so she just waits for the other line to answer. " I'm about to set off too, I just think maybe you need a ride..? I can send you home since it's not much trouble for me because I am heading towards the same direction and I can just drop you in your home". Cass didn't know how to respond to what she heard, but she also felt warmth in her heart that makes her unable to resist his boss's offer. As the saying goes it's an insult to refuse an offer so she must accept it in order not to offend her boss's good intention. " If it is okay for you sir, I would be happy to accept your offer." She timidly responds, which makes Josh smile while listening to her timid voice but straightforward attitude. "Okay, I will wait for you in the parking lot Miss Lim." Then he hangs up. Cass who felt a little static for his boss's attitude towards her, walkout from her office down to the parking lot where her handsome boss was waiting for her. She can't deny to herself that the beauty of her boss is very much outstanding to top it all he is not only handsome but the CEO of a multi-millionaire company in city A. He is also a kind-hearted person which only masks himself as cold and emotionless but for her, she had seen through his way of how he treated her. She also understands that in order to be a good businessman you have to mask yourself as cold-hearted so that you can't be easily deceived by the other business opportunist. Cass's mind was wandering while walking in the direction of the luxury car when she noticed the person leaning against the opened door of a BMW her eyes stared at the smiling face of a handsome man wearing his business suit she can't help but admire this good-looking man in front of her. She was almost activated by his handsomeness but she's able to hide it immediately. " Oh, I'm sorry for making you wait, Mr. Stanley," she said looking a little embarrassed. Josh didn't notice anything because when he looked at her while walking in his direction he only thinks how she looks beautiful even just barefaced. Hearing what she said he smiles at her then said with gentleness," It's okay Miss Lim, it is not that long anyway." He Gestured her to go inside the car. then after making sure that the woman is already sitting inside he gently closes the door then got into the driver's side but she did not fasten her seat belt so he leans a little to fasten it for her. Cass felt awkward with that action but she did not show it to him, she just pretends that it's like nothing. After seeing that the two of them has already settled, Josh started the car then slowly speeding out of the company's parking lot going in the direction of Cass's apartment and to the villa where he lives. They did not talk so much in the car, he plans to invite her for dinner but he disregards that idea for it is early for him to do it. He doesn't want to rush things especially for that matter, he has plenty of time in the future for this is just her first day working in his company. Cass thank him and the latter also waive her goodbye after arriving in front of her apartment.
Cass entered her apartment, she closes the door but did not go directly into her room instead, she leans her back on the door and pondered for a while. Does she think if this continues who's a woman that won't fall for that outstanding man? only an idiot one. A few minutes later cass is preparing for her dinner in the kitchen after cooking she immediately fed herself then wash the dishes. She got in a shower before going to bed because of her work she felt a little exhausted maybe because she's new for the work so her system is still in adjustment. When her back touches on the bed she immediately drifted away to sleep. Whoever in the spacious villa, Josh called his best friend Robert to come for a drink or two. Robert who knows his best friend better, said " You know? I have never seen you like this before and it never crosses my mind that someday my best buddy will be infatuated by a girl who he just meet." he said with a teasing smile. Josh stared at him wit
It's been a long night, and I'm not sure if it is fun going to a pub when I need to wake up early for work after tonight. My eyes feel gritty, and there's an ache stretching across my shoulders maybe this is because I slept in one position the whole night. Damn, how I wish I could crawl back into my bed until the pain in my shoulder will dissipate before I could get up and start another day for this week. But I was perplexed when I looked at my alarm clock on my bedside table and found out that I only have thirty minutes to prepare to go to the office. So I am rushing everything to consume the time, less than I usually did. Truly the time comes fast as it was. In the blink of an eye, it becomes an hour. An hour becomes a day and a day becomes a week without realizing it. Today, I become one month working as executive assistant of my outstanding Yummy boss. Oh my God! what was I thinking? The time and days that we spend working together make us more familiar with each other. We work
I felt tired while walking towards the parking area of the famous cuisine in city A. This day I only stayed three hours in my office after that three hours, I was out for a client after a client meeting. Even for lunch I still had to talk to a business partner. I don't even have time to break at least an hour of not facing those opportunists individual. I inwardly sigh at that thought, I can't do anything about it that's how business works. I sat down inside my car, my driver who is sitting in the driver's seat to look at me through the rearview mirror of my car, and I don't need to question him what was that look for. I told him to send me home. He nodded politely before starting the car and drove away through the crowded road. It is a wee hour so naturally, there's a traffic jam along the way but fortunately, it is not that bad this time, we still arrive early as we expected. As I reached the door of my house, I took out my keys I open the door and went inside. I place the
It is my second week of the second month of working with Stanley Corporation. Today is Tuesday, I have been waiting for a taxi for more than thirty minutes but there is not even one. When I was about to lose my patience Mr. Satnley's car stop right in front of me. He said with a smiling face," Good Morning Miss Lim, If your okay I can give you a ride." I who is looking at his smiling face was intimidated by his smile again. But I immediately mask it. I nodded my head then said, "Thank you, Mr. Stanley," while getting in the car and putting on my seatbelt as well. We arrived at the building in less than twenty minutes. I am the one who got out of the car first. I thank him again then go in first because he will park his car in the parking area reserved for his car. when I'm thanking him he just nodded his head without uttering a word. I rashly go up to my office. I don't need to Go to Mr. Stanley's office this instant because I already put the things as well as his schedule for today
It's Monday and I am back to work. Today was different I don't know why. Today seems too busy than the other day. There's a lot of work. Work has been filing and filing without stopping. Soon the day is about to end but my work is not yet done. Until its already seven in the evening but I am not still done with those works. I was not able to eat my lunch because I forgot the time. It was exhausting I was finally done with today's work and it is already eleven o'clock in the evening. I kept everything in place before I left. I was left with a little energy. I take a cab not wanting to disturb uncle ben. I almost fall asleep during the ride. I just try to keep my eyes open until I reach my apartment. As soon as I reach my apartment I plopped down on my couch and dozed off. I didn't even bother to change my clothes or have something to eat.. That's how tired I was. I was awakened by the sunrise shining in my face. I open my eyes look in the direction of the light from the
I woke up early as usual and do my morning routine as always. I Have to go to the office this day and in the evening is the ball which makes me excited because my date is my assistant that I like. And tonight would be my plan for my first step on pursuing her. I have to take it easy so as not to embarrass myself also. After getting ready, I got in my car and drove towards my company. When I arrived at the parking lot, I vaguely see a figure of a woman walking towards the lift. The figure looks like Cass, She is so early today. Actually, I feel sorry for her for how many days of keeping her busy but I can't help it I really need her assistance so that it could be completed before the targeted time. Thanks for my diligent assistant its really done ahead of the requested time frame. I'm walking towards my office while passing by the office of Cass I stole a glance at her and I can see a glimpse of happiness. And she looks refresh maybe because I let her rest yesterday. I get inside my
There it was, a red blood ball dress. It looks amazing and magnificent. It was an off-shoulder with heart shape corset and princess style. It was just unbelievable. Beside it was a red plump that had sparks of gold in the heels. What was Liz thinking? anyway, she's good at the things like that so she has to be a good taste. I sighed I had no other choice. I was thinking about how I would going to style my hair when I heard a knock on the door. When I open it," Hi miss Lim right? I was sent by Mr. Stanley to help you for tonight." she said politely. It turns out Mr. Stanley hired a person to put on makeup and style my hair for me. Very thoughtful indeed. " Okay, Thank you. Please come in." I said while letting her inside my apartment. " It's okay MMiss Lim, I think Mr. Stanley deserves your gratitude. I am just a person paid by him to beautify you tonight but I can see the reason why Mr.Stanley is doing this to you." She said with a smile on her face. Hearing what she say
I excused myself there to give them time to talk first so that I could also think alone for a while. I sit down at the bar counter to have some drink a little and from where I am sitting I can see them talking and it seems that they are whispering. I sigh, that's how girls talk a girly talk. I went in pouring some drink for myself. I am not going to drunk. Just something to take my mind off. " Mr...I mean Josh" I heard someone said from the side. " May I?" It's her best friend Liz pointing to the seat beside me. " Sure," I said. " Would you like to drink?" I asked her. she nodded. And I called a bartender to get some ladies' drink. I poured it into her glass. We took a few sips. I was wondering what would she want to talk about that makes her follow here. " You like my best friend right?" she asked me suddenly and I was stunned Is it that obvious? I smiled at her. " Looked I know you like her and please don't deny it," she said with confidence. So I nodded. " Too bad y
