“Did you cook this?” I can’t help but smile as I asked him that. He shrugged and slowly nodded. I chuckled and shook my head. “Why? You don’t like it?” he asked, making a face already. I rolled my eyes. “Stop it, you’re not cute,” I said and laughed at him. I shook my head and just focused on my plate. He cooked steak, by the way. He told me it was his first time trying that’s why he’s anxious. Well, it’s not that bad. “Is it that bad, though?” he asked worriedly. I sighed and rolled my eyes again. Oh gosh. “It’s really fine, love. It’s good. And what you prepared for me is enough already. I appreciate this, love, so much…” I reached for his hands on the table. He sighed and just nodded. He then smiled after. “Let’s just continue eating, then let’s have wine after,” he said and then winked at me. I chuckled a bit as I shook my head. “Okay.” We went back to eating. While we dine, he kept on telling me how his day was after the grueling last day of exams. I ranted out how dif
“Are you home?” I asked Greg as I was doing my night routine. I was video calling him that night. Thankfully, I was able to go to my room without being interrogated by my parents. I honestly do not know how Greg convinced them or what alibi did he use for them to believe, but it really doesn’t matter now. What’s important is that we weren’t caught. Gosh. “Yup.” He turned the camera around and showed me the corridor of his floor. Then I heard the elevator closing. I pouted and nodded as I continued to put on my serum. “Are you okay? I mean, are you not sore?” he asked. I almost dropped the bottle that I was holding. Suddenly, I felt my face reddening. Damn. “Uhh…I…” I bit my lip. My mind went haywire, and I didn’t know why I rattled to the point that I almost dropped my things. The hell?! I heard Greg chuckle. “Hey, are you really okay? Felice. There was an amusement in his voice. I immediately glared at him. “What?” he asked, on the verge of laughing.I rolled my eyes. “I’m fine.
“It’s just so complicated, Greg, I don’t know. I’m not even an expert with this, yet she’s asking me for some advice or something. Ugh.” I massaged my head. It was honestly aching ever since this morning. I was in Greg’s condo, and I just finished signing the clearance. I do not have any academic duties anymore, but I still had council duties. The weekend was stressful because I needed to tend to Karrie's broken heart, and I didn't even know how. "Why? She's broken-hearted?" Greg asked. He was at his workplace, while I was on the couch, ranting about the stress that I've been through. "Yeah, I guess so. You know what? I actually do not get the whole thing because she really didn't tell that in detail. She just gave me some of it and then poof, she cried again. All she said was that the boy, whoever he was, started to get cold, and then eventually, they lost track." I made a face. Greg was just facing his laptop, but still listening. He nodded. "He's not worth it then." I gasped an
“So, it’s the semestral break, huh? What’s your plan, Felice?” Mom asked while we were in the middle of dinner. I shrugged. “Enjoy my vacation,” I said and continue eating. I could feel my mother’s gaze at me. “And what is this news that you didn’t run for the student council for next year? Not even any position, why didn’t you tell me about this?” I rolled my eyes. And so, she knew. I sighed and looked at her. She was already creasing her forehead. “The election’s done, Mom. We already have a newly elected student council. You cannot do anything about that. Don’t worry, Mom, my term is still until the next semester. The election is just early,” I said to her. She gasped hysterically. “Still, you didn’t tell me, Felice!” I rolled my eyes again. “Mom, you were busy, and I know you’ll just push me into it.” I shook my head.My mom looked at my dad in disbelief. “Look at this, hon!” she said, asking for help from Daddy, but my father just shook his head too and continued eating.
“Greg!” I widened my eyes at Gregory who was just laughing at me as if all of these were jokes. “What?” he whispered in my ear and started hugging me again. My heart rummaged in my chest as I scanned the whole conference room. Oh my gosh! This is just crazy. “My gosh, Greg, chill out!” I said as I slowly pushed him away from me. He burst out in laughter before slumming his butt on the swivel chair. He raised both his hands as a sign of surrender. I crossed my arms and glared at him. “This has to stop,” I said to him. He pressed his lips together and looked down like a kid who has just been scolded. I rolled my eyes. I never thought he was this naughty and clingy. Gosh. He sighed and stood. He walked up to me and hugged me tightly. “Hmm. I’m sorry, I just missed you,” he whispered and kissed me on my neck again. I was attacked by anxiousness again. I looked around outside the conference room. I sighed in relief when I saw that there was no one there. I pulled away from the hug an
Chapter 46“Are you coming today?” I couldn’t help but rolled my eyes at what Greg said. I sighed and looked at my phone on the dresser across from me. I was sitting on the bed and coloring my nails. “I am, but maybe later. I don’t know.” I heard him groan. I laughed a bit. “Okay, I’ll just see you, then?” he said. That’s when I looked up at him and smiled. “Yep, bye love,” I said. The call ended. I just shook my head before standing up. It was the day of his meeting with my parents, and I’m supposed to be there, but I woke up late, so I’m just gonna run there now. ‘I went to the bathroom and took a quick shower. After that, I immediately changed into a sleeveless beige jumpsuit and paired it with white sneakers. I got my small sling bag and take took one last look at my body mirror before I walked out of my room. When I got down, I saw our helpers cleaning and getting ready for lunch since it was almost eleven. “Felice, you’re not eating here?” one of our helpers said. I bit my
“You are his mistress?! All this time it was you?!” Karrie’s voice thundered. My eyes widened even more. She was so angry that I was already so scared of her. I looked at Greg who was already in front of me. “Karrie, let-”“No!” I almost jumped on my feet. Karrie shoved Greg away. “Karrie, please let’s talk-”“I said no!” My cousin turned to him and glared at him while I was standing there, still confused about what was really happening. My heart was thumping so fast, and I still couldn’t fathom taking all of this! Was this really true? Greg was Karrie’s boyfriend? The man whom she has been telling me about? I didn’t know what to feel exactly. I was beyond shock, heck I didn’t even know what to react! “You, bitch! I confided with you! I treated you like a sister and you didn’t even tell me!” My eyes were wide open as I looked at her in shock. Tears started to stream down my face as she was shouting at me. Greg was holding her. FuckI felt like my heart was crippled as I looked at
My mind was haywire. The bliss and happiness that I felt for the past months left like a blur. Everything was in chaos. I didn’t know how we were able to leave the company with all the chaos that was going on earlier. I still couldn’t believe it. It was like a nightmare, and I just wished that I could wake up already, but then no matter how I try to convince myself, the pain that I was feeling inside my chest was my constant reminder that everything was real. I couldn’t recall how Mommy and Daddy took me out of the building discreetly. I was crying the whole time, while my parents were arguing about how to stop the media from creating articles about this. Yes, it spread like a wildfire. In just seconds, our relatives were calling my parents already, saying that our family was on the frontline of some business blogsite. Wow. It’s amazing how the internet can grab this immediately. Just like that, we were trending in the business world already. Guess, we just have to wait for the broad
