Seconds faded, moments passed but nothing could grasp his interest during the whole event. His eyes took in the details of the auditorium. Kids, kids, and more kids dressed up in bright colorful clothes standing beside their instructors; who looked boring and dull. Nothing remarkable. For him anyway. A thought of abandoning the night crossed his mind but that would be absurd he knew. "How long?" Kevin asked in a stern tone feeling beyond annoyed. "Sir-" John began but a loud sound rang in the background forcing him to stop. "All right ladies and gentlemen, time for another act. We have a very special performance." The man standing on the stage announced with an overly enthusiastic smile on his face. "Just one more performance after this and then your speech," said John before gulping in nervousness. Kevin poked his cheek with his tongue and threw a cold glance at John before getting up from where he sat and heading for the back door. He was done with this event. John eyed his dis
Kevin saw as Emma made her way down from the stage and stood on the side. He heard his name being called. People cheered once he walked onto the stage carrying his powerful aura and said the words which didn't matter to him at all other than keeping his gentleman's image in front of the people. However, for everyone else, they did. His gaze kept following the girl who was standing on the other side of the auditorium but not so far away from him. She was the only one that grabbed his attention tonight. He had never experienced this instant attraction for anyone. Everything about her was mesmerizing, whether it be her figure, her face that was reflecting a certain innocence, or her loving demeanor. Everything.Emma tensed as she felt Kevin looking at her but she dodged the feelings aside. It could be a coincidence she thought, maybe he's looking that way and not her. Emma saw the ladies looking at him weirdly, or seductively perhaps_some playing with their hair, while others licking thei
"Oh, Emma! She's one of them. Tremendously skilled and I must add she's a hard worker. The kids you saw earlier, she is the one who trained them.'' Kevin hummed, a sparkle in his eyes."I would like to meet her."A moment of silence lasted between them before the old man stammered. "S-sure Sir!" Even though the old man wasn't certain why Kevin demanded to meet her, he was convinced that Emma's a diligent girl with utmost mannerism. She's got talent and she's surely one of his most valuable employees who's capable of portraying a good impression of the school in Kevin's eyes. Thus, he agreed to his demand without any argument or questions and asked one of the staff to bring her.Moments later, Kevin saw her moving through the cheering crowd and coming towards him. And at that moment, he saw her from up close and God she's gorgeous indeed. Who would have thought the girl he saw yesterday in those loose ugly clothes would be so beautiful. He took her all in.Sharp features, small shoulder
In less than half an hour, the crowd began dispersing. Everybody started leaving. Kids left for home with their parents, hands full of candies, eyes gleaming with joy. The once crowded and cheerful auditorium was empty now except for a few men who were busy discussing some official matters and the staff who were waiting backstage. Everyone was tired but happy. The day had finally come to an end on a good note. "We did well," said Mina, taking a bite from her apple. "David seemed delighted receiving all those cheques," Mina added and Emma hummed, bending down and carrying the white cat up in her arms. "I think we might get a promotion this time," Mina continued and stared at Emma for a while who seemed to be in deep thoughts. "What did that charmer say to you?" "Huh?" "What did he say? You look flustered," said Mina, leaning against the wall and looking at Emma who sat quietly, fingers mindlessly running through Lola's white fur. Emma stilled for a while, vague images from the
Kevin felt his mind filled with euphoric desire, grey eyes darkened with shades of lust. He felt his commitment to not touch her withering in thin air, now that he had touched her. Fuck everything, he wanted her. He leaned down and placed his lips on her bare shoulders once again making her squirm against him. It only deepened his desire but he knew no matter how hard he was, how bad he wanted her, he'd have to wait. She isn't willing, not yet but she'll be, he knew. Emma wriggled her wrists, trying her best to get herself free from his manly grip but nothing worked. A tear cascaded down her eyes realizing her helplessness. He must have realized that she was crying because the next moment she felt his hold loosening on her. She heard the sound of footsteps getting vague and soon it vanished completely. He was gone!Emma looked around, seemingly frightened. Her Breaths awfully short, eyes heavy with unshed tears looking around the studio. Everywhere! Every corner! But there was no man
It was two in the morning. The stars were brighter that night with the full moon shining high up in the sky, adorning the night with its light. Its silvery rays slanted through the small glass window into the room that was once drowned in darkness. Casting shadows on the white walls and filling the room with unwanted light. Emma was lying in the bed, her eyes fixed on the moon that's been peeking through her window witnessing her troubled state. It's quiet in the room, only the snores of the little boy sleeping next to her could be heard. But, sleep was miles away from her eyes. Different thoughts kept running in her head, shattering her peace. She couldn't sleep, today's incident didn't let her sleep. It kept replaying in her mind again and again. Shivers ran down her body every time she would remember that foreign touch. Every detail comes rushing into her mind, the way she was touched, his proximity. She could still feel his hot breaths, she could still smell his exotic cologne and
"I can't believe this nonsense," Mina yelled and looked at Emma who was sitting quietly. "You okay?" Mina asked the younger one as she saw her dull face. Her hand rested on Emma's shoulder trying to calm her down. They had spent the last twenty minutes in the control room trying to find a trace of that mysterious man but returned disappointed. There's no footage. All the cameras inserted on the first floor were out of order. None of them were working. "I'm fine," Emma replied, a gentle smile adorning her face, an attempt to hide her distress."Don't worry!" She assured Mina, and got up from the bench, striding towards the lockers. Grabbing her ballet slippers from the lowest one, Emma began wearing them, eyes downcast, teeth mindlessly biting her lips. Mina stared at her for a while and realized something was definitely off. Emma looked quiet and troubled."But I'm not! I feel like burning that damn control room." Mina began, annoyance visible in her tone."Good for nothing piece of—"
December arrived with its absolute glory. Frosty gusts of wind, dark skies, frozen lakes while thick layers of snow covered the ground and the top of the houses and trees. Everything already seemed to be under a blanket of snow yet more snow continued to fall.Emma was walking down the road to the cafe, her hands stuffed deep into her coat pockets as she walked on the sidewalk, eyes looking at the window displays that were beautifully decorated with Christmas trees and presents. Some even had huge puppets of Santa. Emma smiled knowing she could afford to buy some decent presents this year. She wanted to give something very special to her brother. And for Mina, a dress probably. The additional money that she got with her paycheck was no less than a treasure for her and she's very relieved knowing she'd be able to tackle the expenses. However, deep down she's a bit unhappy and disturbed by the fact that her friends couldn't get the reward they deserved, especially Mina. She truly deserv
