The next day, he acted as nothing happened. He was back to his stoic and no bullshit attitude. I was more than okay to avoid that type of conversation, so I sure as hell didn't bring it up. I decided to stop thinking about it and focus on work. These documents aren't going to prepare themselves.
I had some time after the presentation, so I decided to go shopping. I am in Paris, after all. The concierge recommended a boutique that was apparently super trendy and affordable, so I decided to give it a try.
It really was a beautiful store. Dozens of beautiful dresses and outfits were displayed, and I was having a hard time picking. I decided to go wi
The next couple of days were spent following him around and then going sightseeing. I helped him with the conference during the day, and in the evening, I was free to do whatever I wanted. I was having a great time shopping.I confronted Ivan about the roses, but he just kind of shrugged."I told you I was going to keep trying. I meant every word I said," he said.This man is infuriating. I couldn't wait to get away from him once our plane landed. But unfortunately, I ended up accepting a ride from him from the airport to my apartment because I was exhausted from the long flight and didn't feel like arguing against him.After awkwardly saying goodbye, I went inside, then laid down on my bed. I decided not to text Mark right away because I wanted to surprise him. I decided not to tell him that I was arriving a day earlier. I figured it'd be a nice surprise for him since we haven't had the chance to spend time together lately.I took a shower and put on my favorite dress that he loved on me. Better look good for my man, right? I threw the

"I will be turning in my resignation letter then!" I declared."And throw away your chance to move up in your career? You wouldn't dare," Ivan said.He was right. That wouldn't be smart considering he hasn't physically harmed me in any way.I stormed out of the room and sat down in front of my computer. That's it. I am done with this. I am reporting him to HR. I don't care if he is the owner of this company, and it could potentially cost me my job.
I decided to start my day by doing little things to inconvenience him. I came in extra early and rearranged his entire room. This may seem like no big deal to most people but not him. He was Mr. Perfect. The pencil holder's placement on the left side of the desk instead of the right will drive him nuts. There were many other little things I rearranged oh so slightly, so it'll take him all day to figure out what was wrong in his room.Rest assured, I was right. He was fidgeting all day since he got in. He called me into his office."Did you summon me, Ivan?" I asked, pretending to be oblivi
"You seem to be in a good mood today," Ivan said."How can I be in a bad mood when I'm in the presence of such a fine gentleman," I told him."Your sarcasm is an attractive quality in you, Miss Young," he smirked.I rolled my eyes. I am waiting for Katie Mckinzee's first attack. I already let her know that one of his meetings have been canceled and he'd be free for at least four hours. Which I can imagine is too long for him to spend time with
I decided to confront Mark that night. There was no point in delaying the discussion. I caught him in the act, and it was time to rip the band-aid out. I invited him to dinner at my apartment so we can discuss it in private even though I should publicly shave his head and humiliate him. But Alas, real life doesn't work that way."Mmm....it smells so good in here! What's the special occasion?" he said when he walked inside."No reason, just wanted to have dinner. We haven't seen much of each other lately, so I figured we should sit down and talk," I said.&nb
I banged on Ivan's door. I know, I could just open the door and waltz right in since I have the key to his place, but I figured banging on his door would be more dramatic. I've seen way too many drama movies to miss this opportunity.He opened the door, and once again, he was shirtless. Does this man not own shirts to wear at home? I made a mental note to send him some shirts later."What's the meaning of this commotion, Ariel? It's late," he asked in an annoyed voice. His hair was messy, and his eyes looked sleepy. He looked even more handsome than he usually does in the office. If I wasn't so hurt and angry, I would've
I went to the office and resumed working like nothing happened the previous night. I was just glad he didn't fire me for my ruthless behavior. I still felt like shit for being betrayed by Mark, but I decided to separate my personal issues from work and kept my smiley face on.I had a surprise waiting for me at the desk when I arrived. A giant bouquet of lilies. Even bigger than the one I threw at his face last night. I read the card,To make up for the deaths of those innocent flowers last night. Try not to destroy these too.Latest chapter
