“I’d rather argue with you, than kiss someone else.”- Unknown
Elsie POVI was in a deep sleep when my phone suddenly rang a few times. I tried to hide it under the pillow so I could not hear the ringtone, but the noise kept me from sleeping peacefully. Come on, whoever's on the phone, at least take into consideration the fact that people need more sleep over the weekend. I curse before I answer the call with my eyes still closed, not bother to know the caller's name.“Hmm," I was humming lazily without a word of greeting.“And good morning to you too.” A husky voice can be heard clearly over the line. I can't recognize the voice, and it doesn't ring a bell.“Wrong number,” I chided without looking at the screen, lazy to entertain.“Hold on, don't you dare to hang up.” He's threatening, and I felt a little pissed off by his tone. I immediately looked at the screen to find out who the caller was, but it was a new number, not from my contact.“And who are you to threaten me early in the morning?” I scolded the rude caller. I sat on the bed with my eyes wide open and rage in me.“Three days, remember?” He said straight to the point. My eyebrows knitted. Now I remember this guy.“You, the arrogant guy,” I called him but he didn’t show any response. “I've told you, I'm not taking your offer into consideration. I'm not interested and this has never crossed my mind over the last three days.” I was annoyed, he simply ignored my words.“Very brave of you to reject my offer.” His voice was firm.“Oh, you have no idea how courageous I am. I appreciate the compliment. Now, if I may, let me get back to my sleep that was disrupted by you.” Sarcasm runs in my blood.“Lazy ass.” He mocked which made me gritted my teeth. That guy was crazy. He ruined my beauty slumber in the morning and called me “lazy ass”. I did the right thing by not accepting his offer. I can't picture working under his command and calling him boss. No, it's certainly not going to happen even in my dream. I'll never dream of that man. It will be the worst nightmare if it truly happens.“You know what, I feel bad for Andrea for having a rude, arrogant, and self-centered dad. She ought to have a better father than you. Do you ever consider how she will feel if she knows how you force someone to accept your offer?” I don’t care if my words hurt him.“You have no right to interfere. She wouldn't know that unless you had told her.” I rolled my eyes with his answer, even though I knew he could not see me in this conversation.“Okay, I won't interfere in your business, and I won't say anything to Andrea, but only on one condition." An eye for an eye.“Condition? Great, you're the first person who dares to negotiate with me." He sneered.“Really? Oh, I'm so proud of myself." I said it in a sarcastic way. I’m not going to back off from him easily. “Listen to me clearly; the condition is to stop calling me with your ridiculous offer. Let me repeat myself, I’m not going to accept your offer.” I enunciated each word clearly.“No, you listen to me clearly, love. You can’t reject me. Once I've decided what I want, no one can say no, and you're included. I'm going to make sure you come and say yes to my face. Mark my words.”“Ha-ha. Very funny mister whatever you are. Let's see how you can force me to say yes!"“Well, challenge accepted." He cut the line afterward without even giving me a chance to defend myself. Arrogant and rude. It convinced me it was the right thing to do for rejecting his offer.I slammed the phone on my bed and pulled the blanket to cover my body. I snuggled up and got some more sleep.****************************
“You smell like love.”- UnknownElsie POV“Let me go!” I shouted out loud. I don't know who the hell they are. They just drove by my car when I was in the parking lot and shot me in a car with tinted glass.“Please, miss. We don't want to hurt you, but we're just following our boss' orders." One of the guys sitting next to me spoke. Judging by their dark dress from head to toe, they looked like bodyguards. My eyes caught this identical scorpion tattoo on their necks which resembles a gang tattoo.“Who is your boss?” I tried to conceal my fear.“You're going to find o
“He smiled and all I could think was ‘Oh shit’.”- UnknownElsie POVI woke up with a slight headache. I rubbed my eye but I felt pain when I lifted my hand. I noticed my elbow was injured. I scanned my surrounding which I’m not familiar with. My eyes landed on the figure lie next to me, on the king-si
“You make me feel things I didn’t believe anymore.”- UnknownDexter POVToday will be the day she will be here. I can’t approach her in a nice way so I don’t have another alternative but to use my mafia’s way to make her follow my plan. I knew she hates but me but it doesn’t matter. I don’t need love from anyone. I don’t do romance because I knew eventually it will hurt in the end.“Welcome, love.” I greeted her when the bodyguard brought her to my office in the mansion. I asked them to fetch her from her condo this morning.
“God knew what he was doing from the very beginning.”- UnknownElsie POV“Why are you here, Elsie?” Andrea queried.“To visit you, princess. You don’t want to meet me?” I said faking a sad face.“Of course I want to meet you. I’m happy you came to visit me. I always ask daddy to bring me to you but he always busy.” She complained. I laughed, impressed with how her smart mouth uttered every single word.
“Dust settles. I don’t.”-UnknownElsie POVI left Andrea in the room once I put her to sleep. Her room was on the first floor while mine was on the second floor. I look around searching for that guy that forced me to be here. I need to settle with him about the contract or whatever agreement that we talked about before this. I can’t be stuck at this place as his puppet for the whole life.I walked around the mansion alone. Some of the maids were in the kitchen and numerous men patrolling outside the mansion. I don’t know where his r
“I wish I could ignore you as you ignore me.”-UnknownDexter POVToday I clear out some time to spend with my sweet pie but this round with Elsie joining us. Talking about her, it had been two weeks since she avoided me after the incident in the basement. She avoided me at every corner of the house and not even spares me a glance, literally she just treated me as an invisible man that doesn't exist in the mansion.I walked towards the kitchen and saw her preparing the food for our picnic later. She placed the food in the lunch box and put it inside the big basket. Andrea ente
“You are my favorite distraction.” -UnknownDexter POV“It’s time to go, sweet pie,” I spoke as I noticed that we had spent few hours here. The golden globe in the sky was scorching from above and it seems to send fire to the ground.“Ok, daddy.”“Let’s help Elsie clean up first, shall we?”“No problem, daddy.” She showing me the ‘okay’ signs with
“Pain will not destroy you, the refusal to face it will.”- Rune LazuliDexter POVI wore black pants with a white shirt and match it with a dark blue suit. It is my company charity dinner. I will bring Andrea with me and Elsie had to follow to as she needs to take care of her while I’m occupied with few partners. I went to Andrea’s room once I’m ready.“My stomach pain, Elsie. I don’t think
