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
"You need fifty thousand dollars?"Anthony stared at Faith with surprise. He knew Faith always had money problems, but fifty thousand dollars was a bit much."Y...yes. This is kind of an emergency, and I'm willing to sleep with you again if that's what you want. But I really need your help," Faith said quietly. She didn't know how she managed to stay calm this whole time. She felt humiliated begging her boss for money and offering herself to him after boldly rejecting his advances."Faith, I need to know where the money is going before I just hand you a check," Anthony said firmly. He had a sneaky suspicion that this had to do with what Richie said about her sister.He got up from his chair and walked towards her. Then sat on the chair in front of her so they would be more up close and personal."My sister is in trouble again. She got involved with some dangerous men, and now I owe them fifty thousand dollars. Please, Anthony, I need the money. I'l
Faith looked around the bridal store. She felt like this was all a dream. Just the other day, she thought she would get murdered as those guys were holding her and Mary down, and today, she was shopping for a wedding dress. She had no idea what kind of emotion she was supposed to feel at this moment.Earlier that day, Anthony called her into his office. She walked in feeling nervous. It was way past the 48 hours she was given by Mike, but he hadn't come by and threatened her or called her. Anthony must've paid off Mary's debt as he promised. A surge of relief and gratitude washed over her."I took care of everything as I promised. I gave him the money. He will never bother you or Mary ever again," Anthony said. He didn't believe it entirely and decided to hire someone to keep an eye on Mike's gang, but he wanted Faith to stop worrying."Thank you. Thank you so much, Anthony. You have no idea how grateful I am to you!" Faith gushed. "I could never repay you for t
"Stop it!" Faith scolded and pried herself off of him. "I...I don't want this," she said quietly.Anthony's eyes were dark. "Alright. I'll respect your wishes," he said then went silent.Faith fidgeted uncomfortably. She didn't want to hurt his feelings, but at the same time, she didn't want him to play with her body anytime he wanted."I'm sorry, I didn't mean..." Faith proceeded to apologize."Never apologize to me for saying no," Anthony declared before she could finish her sentence. "I'd never force you to do it with me." He grazed her chin with his thumb, making her blush.They arrived at the restaurant shortly after."Mr. DeM
Anthony struggled to get Faith inside the house as she could hardly walk. He ended up throwing her over his shoulder and carrying her inside."I feel sick," Faith murmured as soon as he reached his room and put her down on the bed."Don't you dare throw up on me, woman," Anthony said. He started to panic as her face twisted. She looked like she was about ready to barf all over him."Hold on to me," he said and stood her up."Where are we going?" she managed to ask."To the bathroom," Anthony said.Luckily, she didn't throw up. "I'm fine. We can get to screwing," Faith declared and pressed against him."There will be no 'screwing.' It's time for you to sleep," Anthony chuckled."You know you want me. You said so," Faith took her dress off and tossed it aside. She pushed him so he'd be forced to sit on the bed.Anthony tried to bury all his desires underneath as he looked at the woman with a body of a goddess
Her skin tingled where he touched her. Faith tried to say no out of stubbornness, but no words came out of her mouth. Who was she kidding? She didn't want him to stop.Faith blushed as he pulled her shirt over her head to take it off and tossed it aside. He started to kiss all over her body. The touch of his lips sent a shock wave through her entire body. He took off her underwear and touched the wetness between her legs. Soft moans escaped from her throat as he stroked her clit.He pried her legs open and pressed his mouth on her heated core. Faith couldn't stop moaning as he licked her furiously as if he wanted to devour her. "Anthony...I can't..." she croaked out. She couldn't finish her sentence as she herself didn't know what she wanted to say. She can't think straight as she was on the verge of climax.She gripped a fist full of his hair and screamed his name as she came. He looked up and smiled, satisfied with the effect he had on her. Her body shuddered
Anthony didn't hear Diana calling his name for several moments as he was lost in his thoughts."Sir, are you okay?" Diana asked for the fifth time. Anthony finally looked up."Sorry, what is it?" he asked."I need your signature to approve this statement. Would you mind?" Diana slid a blue folder towards him."Yeah, sure," he said distractedly but opened the file to sign it quickly."Is everything okay?" Diana asked."How long have you known Faith?" he asked.Huh? Why was Anthony asking about Faith? Diana wondered. Did she do something wrong in her absence? Mess something up?"Since she started working here, boss," Diana chuckled."And you guys talk? Are you two friends?" Anthony inquired."We are not best friends or anything, but we do talk from time to time. She had always been very reserved and quiet. I don't think she has very many friends," Diana said. Faith was also highly insecure about herself, but Diana d
