"May I cut in?" Anthony DeMarco was standing in front of them with his hand extended.
"Mr. DeMarco! Yes, of course. You don't mind, do you, Faith?" Mark said quickly.
"No," her voice was barely a whisper.
Anthony placed his hands on her waist and pulled her closer. She put her hands on his broad shoulders, and they slowly moved with the music. He smelled of cologne. Faith wanted to bury her face in his chest. What a crazy thought!
"Look at me, Faith," Anthony said in a husky voice.
She looked up.
"I want to apologize for what happened between us," he said.
What? Did she hear him co
Anthony looked down at Faith and grinned. She was slightly trembling from the orgasm he just gave her. Gosh, what a beautiful sight that was. He loved to watch a woman come.But then, fear reflected in her eyes as if she remembered the pain he caused her, and his guilt came back.Shit, he needs to fix this immediately."Don't recoil from me like this Faith, I won't hurt you this time," He said gently. He put on the condom and spread her legs. "I'll take my time so just relax," he said and inserted the tip into her and pushed it in halfway.She groaned but not out of pain this time. She wanted him to. "It's okay. I'm okay. You can move," she whimpered.He didn't wait anymore and thrus
At the office, she couldn't look at him directly. But this time, it wasn't because he humiliated her. This time, she couldn't look at him without feeling flustered and turning beet red. Her body yearned for him. But he said it was over! She should just get over it. It's not like she can ever get a guy like that anyway."Faith, are you alright?" he asked her suddenly when she tried to leave quickly after dropping off some paperwork on his desk."Y...yes I'm okay," she said, all red-faced and shy."Come here for a second," he ordered.Faith didn't argue and walked over to him. "Do I make you uncomfortable?" he asked."N...no...just a little...nervous," she tried to control her voice from shaking.Get it together, Faith,she scolded herself in her mind.Anthony inched closer until their chests were almost touching.He moved her hair aside and slowly trailed his fingers from her neck to her arm. She shivered."Yo
Faith told Anthony the address, and he informed his driver. He ordered him to drive as fast as possible. Faith sat next to him, slightly shaking. What kind of trouble did Mary get herself into? Hope it wasn't too late, Faith thought.She felt Anthony taking her hand into his. He squeezed it gently as if to reassure her."Everything is going to be fine. Teenagers get into trouble all the time. We will handle it, don't worry," he said."I told her not to go to these parties, but she never listens to me." Tears rolled down her cheeks. She was trying her best to hold it together, but it was impossible."Shh...you are trying your best," he said gently and wrapped his arm around her, then pulled her into a hug.Despite sleeping with him previously, it felt weird to be held by her boss in the middle of the day like this. Faith thought about pushing him away, but his warm embrace felt too good. She started to feel calmer.It didn't take long for the
Mary didn't speak to them for the entire car ride and just quietly sobbed into her hands. Faith tried to touch her hair, but she snapped and turned away. Faith decided to deal with her later.She couldn't imagine why Anthony would go this far for her. It wasn't his problem to deal with. Faith should've acted stronger and be more assertive to Mary. She felt embarrassed for getting help from him, though she was very grateful.Mary got out of the car as soon as they arrived home then stormed inside the house. Faith sighed. This girl wasn't making things easier for her. She turned her attention to Anthony, who was just sitting there observing her."Thank you for helping me, sir. I couldn't have done it alone," she said quietly."I told yo
Faith tried to speak to Mary, but she refused to open her bedroom door. Faith sighed. Why couldn't this girl understand the position she was in? She didn't like to act like her mother any more than Mary did, but she had no choice. Their mother passed away years ago, forcing Faith to take on a mother's role and take care of Mary and her father.The next day, Mary went to school without telling her goodbye. Faith didn't have the time to argue with her as she was already running late for work.She was summoned to Anthony's office as soon as she arrived.Her heart stopped as she saw Diana standing next to Anthony's desk. "Diana! You're back," Faith said."Diana will be reclaiming her position, so you are no longer needed as my assistant," Anthony went straight to the point.Sadness enveloped Faith. Does this mean she won't get to be close to Anthony anymore? Despite everything that has happened between them, she felt a sense of comfort when he was near
Things were awkward at the office, to say the least. Faith avoided Anthony as much as possible, and it was easier since she didn't have to be his assistant anymore. After their argument at the hotel room, Faith announced that she wanted to end their 'arrangement.' It was supposed to be a one-time thing, and she didn't owe him anything anymore.Anthony, however, didn't feel the same. He refused to let her go.Faith came into the office one morning and heard her colleagues whispering."There you are, Faith. It looks like you have an admirer," one of the admin assistants, Sarah, grinned sheepishly."What do you mean?" Faith looked at her with confusion."Go to your desk, and you'll see what I mean," Sarah said.Faith hurried to her cubicle to see what the fuss was about. She gasped as she a massive bouquet of roses at her desk. "What's this?" she croaked."Someone delivered this to you," Sarah remarked behind her."There must be s
"Are you sure this is okay?" Faith looked around nervously. "Isn't it against the policy to go on dates with people you work with?" she asked."I won't tell if you don't," Mark smirked.They were at a restaurant Mark chose for their date. It was a bit fancier than she was used to. Faith smoothed out a wrinkle of her skirt and sat up straight. It wasn't like she saw Mark for the first time, so why did she feel so nervous?She kept picturing Anthony's disappointed face when she ended things with him. He looked almost angry. She should stop thinking about him and focus on Mark.They spent the evening chatting about work and getting to know each other. Faith never went on an actual date, so this felt nice. Mark was a nice guy. If only she
"I need hundred dollars."Faith looked up from her book and squinted her eyes. "I already gave you an allowance for this month. What happened to it?""It wasn't enough. I ran out," Mary shrugged."Ran out? What have you been doing with the money?" Faith inquired."What's with the third degree? Can you give me the money, or not?" The annoyance was apparent in Mary's voice.Faith looked at Mary, and the sadness overwhelmed her. Mary wasn't always like this. What did she do wrong that her once sweet little sister was now acting like a brat? And what exactly was she planning to do with the money?"You know I can't afford to give that mu
