Butterfly And The CEO
Zac's point of view.
It's Thursday morning, and I'm heading into work. As usual, I am the first one there, well apart from one of the security team, I like to be here before the rest of the staff. I grab a coffee from the machine before I make my way into my office, opening up my laptop as I check my schedule for the day.
I have a couple of interviews today, as I am looking for a new designer to join my very talented design team. The first name on the list is a Miss Ellie Simms; this woman's designs blew me away. She is a very gifted young woman. I was very impressed with the designs that she sent me, and she sent me some excellent references. However, I am a little concerned about the recent missing years, but there could be a simple explanation for that maybe she's been nursing a sick relative or bringing up a young child.
It is now a quarter past eight, and I clear my desk, ready to start my day. Mrs Austin rings from the front reception desk to let me know that Miss Simms has arrived. I tell her that I'm ready for her as I wait for them to arrive.
There's a knock on the door, and I call out for them to enter.
“Please come in.”
I'm sure my jaw drops to the floor. As the most beautiful woman I have ever seen in my life steps into my office, I cannot take my eyes off her as I offer her a seat.
She answers me back in a quiet voice. I've never felt as attracted to a woman as I do right now. What the hell is wrong with me. She juggles an extensive portfolio under her arm, and our hands touch as she places it down on my desk. I feel the electricity shoot through me, sending a rush of heat straight to my cock.
Fuck….nobody has ever had this effect on me before. I feel like a schoolboy looking at his first crush….only I'm no boy, and she is all woman. I realise that I'm still holding her hand, but for the life of me, I don't want to let go. She pulls her hand away from mine, her cheeks flushing as she blushes, fuck…….
I smile as I say,
“Miss Simms, I would like to offer you the position on my design team. I am very impressed with your work, can you start on Monday morning,”
There's no way I can let this woman go…..and she's also a fantastic designer…..Bonus….
"Yes, Monday is fine.s
She says as I reply,
“That's great news, Miss Simms. I'll look forward to seeing you at eight-thirty on Monday morning.”
It's going to be a long weekend, that's for sure. I stand up to shake her hand, looking like some crazy person as I hold on to her just that little bit longer than needed. I frown as I look down at our joined hands, noticing the faint scars on her wrist. She pulls away with a blush when she sees me looking.
She makes for the door struggling to open it with the largeportfolio tucked under her arm. I lean over her to open it, stepping back when I see her reaction. She flinches before turning her head away from me.
What the fuck………
Her actions leave me shaken. I just want to take her in my arms and reassure her that everything will be okay, but seeing her reaction, I open the door before taking a step back.
I watch as she rushes through the door, heading for the lift as fast as she can as I feel my anger rising. How can anyone hurt this beautiful woman?
Morning comes around with a beautiful surprise. The stunning red-headed woman who I haven't been able to get out of my head all weekend, the same woman who kept me awake at night.
The same woman that had me relieving myself in the shower this morning like a hormonal teenager.
Yes, she fell straight into my arms; oh God, she feels so good; she smells so good, and she fits perfectly.
Okay, I know she tripped, and it wasn't intentional, but fuck, this is where she belongs, and I don't want to let go…...ever,
I pull away reluctantly as I look down at her flushed face knowing this crazy attraction I feel is mutual.
“Are you okay, Miss Simms?”
I ask as I look at her flustered face.
“Oh, erm yes. I’m sorry.”
She replies. I nod my head as I stride into the lift; her scent still lingers in the air as I turn my back to her, willing my cock to behave.
Damn, she drives me crazy.
Once I've picked up the forms I need from the finance department, I head into the conference room for the weekly design and planning meeting, where I introduce Ellie to the rest of the design team. When it comes to Rachel, she looks over Ellie with a look that I can't read, as she refuses to shake her hand whilst also insisting that Ellie calls her Miss Carney and not Rachel.
“It's Miss Carney, If you don't mind,” she says as she looks down her nose.
Ellie looks embarrassed as she looks down at her lap.
I know Rachel has a thing for me, Jesus. She's made it pretty obvious on several occasions, but I've never once encouraged her, and that doesn't give her the right to treat Ellie this way. I won't have anyone upsetting her.
We finish off the meeting, and everyone starts to gather their belongings to leave. As the team leaves the room, I turn to look at Rachel, asking her to stay behind,
“You wanted to see me, Zac,” she says in a voice that makes my skin crawl.
I sigh, trying to calm myself as I say.
“Yes, what the hell was that about, Is there a problem with you and Miss Simms.”
I ask in a raised voice. Her eyes go wide as she replies.
“Errrrr no Sir, I just thought that with me being the head designer, it's best to let her know I'm the Boss.”
What the Hell…….
“You would be best to remember who pays your wages here, Miss Carney. We work as a team here, and I will not have her, or any other staff members treated any differently. Do you understand?”
She looks at the floor as she whispers.
“Oh, yes, Im sorry Sir, It won't happen again.”
“Good, I'm glad we understand each other; please close the door on your way out.”
She leaves the room in a hurry, as my thoughts go back to the captivating redhead with emerald eyes. I always made a big deal never to get involved with a member of my own staff. I don't like drama in my workplace, only this time I think Ellie might be worth the Drama.
Butterfly and the CEOChapter 7Zac's point of viewIt's Saturday night, and I still can't get the alluring redhead out of my thoughts. I've decided that come Monday morning I’m going to ask her out on a date. Yeah, me, Mr CEO Harris, who doesn't do dates. Don't get me wrong; now I like a bit of female company, same as any other red-blooded man, but actual dates, that’s a big no. I’m a love 'em and leave kind of guy less hassle that way, but Ellie, there's just something about that woman that pulls me in. Fuck the no dating staff rule. This is my company, and I make the rules.So I guess it's time to change them.I call m
Butterfly and the CEOChapter 8Zac's point of view.I'm sat at the bar waiting for Ellie to return, looking at my watch I realise she's been gone for twenty minutes, I can see the ladies toilets, from where I'm sitting, and I haven't taken my eyes off the door, so I know she's still in there. Knowing how drunk she was, I'm starting to feel a little worried as I shout my head waitress over."Tess, can you do me a favour and check the ladies for a redhead."Sh
Butterfly and the CEOChapter 9Ellie's point of view.I wake up the following morning, with a banging head as I vaguely remember some parts of the previous night; I know Zac was sitting on the floor with me in the ladies toilets, his gentle voice calming me as he stroked my hair, as he told me everything was going to be okay.He called me baby! He told me he was here for me.I don't remember much after that.
Butterfly and the CEOChapter 10Ellie's point of viewThe rest of Sunday passes by as I nurse my almighty hangover. I did have a shower and put my Winnie the pooh pyjamas on, which did make me feel somewhat better. I currently lay on my bed watching Netflix when Erin knocks on the door before peeping her head around it. She's grinning when she says to me.“Ellie, you have a visitor, hunni.”I frown as she walks over to the bed. I don't have any friends. No one would
Butterfly and the CEOChapter 11Ellie’s Point of viewIt's seven pm, and is Zac’s knocking on the apartment door. I open the door feeling the butterflies in my stomach as he looks at me and smiles as he says,“You, look beautiful Ellie.”He takes my hand in his as my heart skips a beat. Wow! What is it with this man? He leads me downstairs through the cafe and outside to where his Alfa Romeo 4C waits. I smile as he opens the door for me. He's a perfect gentleman, and it's been a long time since someone held a door open for me. I slide inside, sinking down into the luxurious leather seat before I turn to look at him as I
Butterfly and the CEOChapter 12Ellie’s point of viewI push myself towards Zac as I kiss him sweetly on his lips. Fuck he tastes so good. It sends a shiver down my spine and straight to my core.He smiles down at me as he returns the kiss, kissing me with more passion than I ever thought possible. I moan as I wrap my arms around his neck, the electricity building between us. Zac runs his hands up and down my spine, caressing my skin as he whispers into my ear.“Your so fucking beautiful, Ellie.”I love the way he says my name in that deep sexy voice of his. He gives
Butterfly and the CEOButterfly and the CEO.Chapter 13Zac’s point of view.I’m lying awake with Ellie still sleeping in my arms as I think back to last night and Ellie' s break down. When I walked into the ladies bathroom and saw her curled up in a ball on the floor, It broke me. I can't stand to see Ellie suffer like this. I knew something wasn't right with her by her reactions to people and the scars I saw on her wrist. I must admit I thought she was self-harming at first, but last nights break down proved different, and the scars that she bares me want to protect her more. How can anyone hurt her?She groans as she asks me why we're s
Butterfly and the CEOChapter 14Zac’s point of viewMonday morning arrives, and I'm at work before everyone else. Acting like that schoolboy as I check the time waiting for Ellie to arrive. I'm in the meeting room first when I realise I've left the folder that I need on my desk, shit I need it.Pulling the door of the meeting room open before I head to my office and Ellie comes flying through the room straight into my arms……Fuck….. What a way to start the day
