I’ve been feeling anxious the whole time I stepped inside Juno’s apartment. There’s this tiny gut feeling inside me like I forgot something so important. I was sure Juno has been watching me murmur to myself the whole time; and I’m certain she thinks I was complaining about doing the dishes.
My head cocked in bafflement as I tried to remember everything I’ve done today. Meetings, reviewing of project proposals, cancellation of appointment and site visit… which I’m sure are nothing important.
The doorbell rang and I expected it would be my laptop. And just as I heard the chiming sound, it lit up a bulb inside my head. Oh, shit! I remember now! I have a meeting with Mr. Alonzo which I unfortunately canceled! It was hard to book an appointment with him since he’s a huge businessman in our field. Always busy and in-demand, which makes it hard to reach out to him.
My father has been eyeing him for a long
We're halfway through the movie and Jupiter hasn't said a single word to me since the film began. Though, he'd let out some occasional gasps everytime the movie was getting intense. He was so tense and stiff beside me.I chuckled inwardly to myself. I failed to focus on the film since I'd rather watch his hilarious reactions. Who the hell is he kidding? Not scared, huh? I caught the horror in his eyes when I suggested to turn off the lights earlier."Hmm..." I grabbed the pillow beside me and scooted further away from him, settling myself on the sofa's edge. The laptop was right in front of his face and good thing the screen's pretty wide so I can still see what's happening. And as I was observing the current scene, I'm certain a jump scare is on its way to scare the bejesus out of him.I smirked when I felt him unconsciously moving closer to me. My eyes were fixed on the screen, waiting for the jump scare to come, while he's getting closer and close
I parked on my usual spot and pounded on the steering wheel when I realized what have I done. I just got in the parking lot of my condominium and my head was clouded the whole time I was driving home. “My gosh? That was so…” I groaned out loud, irritated to myself. I stomped my feet repeatedly and even accidentally pressed on the car honk while I was lightly punching the steering wheel. I must’ve looked like an absolute drama queen in front of her! I felt so ridiculously embarrassed as I am trying to remember my action and the words I’ve spat out to her. I don’t think I can face her tomorrow without turning myself into a freaking tomato! I sat for a few more minutes inside my car before finally deciding to bring myself out. I grabbed the laptop beside me, which I forgot to put in its case ‘cause I was in a hurry to walk out from her. I cringed to myself again as I proceeded to glare on the laptop. I should’ve just accepted her offer to
An exhausted sigh escaped my lips as I stared lazily at my dull ceiling. It’s six in the morning and I’ve been awake for thirty minutes now but I couldn’t seem to bring myself out of the bed. I’m still fully occupied about our small fight last night. It was the last thought in my head before I fell asleep and also the first when I woke up this morning. Pickled meowed and stretched her limbs beside me. The cat then jumped off the bed, then hopped back in not even five seconds later. “Stupid cat,” I murmured groggily. I yawned and stretched my arms just like her. Good thing I was still able to get a proper sleep last night despite the horror film we’ve watched. And well, to be fair, I wasn’t really paying full attention to it. I forcefully pushed to my feet and started getting ready for work. I was moving so slow and took nearly an hour in the shower so I panicked when I realized I’m running out of time. Shit! I have to be there before Ju
Javier Alonzo's limousine brought us to his home where a small intimate birthday celebration is happening. I was hesitant and shy to dine in with them at first. But when I noticed the warning flashing in the old man's eyes, I swallowed the shyness in my throat and settled on the seat beside his eldest son.They're a family of lawyers and businessmen. And his wife was a beauty queen! I saw her pageant on the television when I was a mere kid. I remembered holding back the shriek wanting to escape from my mouth while silently cheering for her.Sitting in front of me was a girl who seemed to be a high school student based on her uniform. She was looking at me with wide eyes and gaped mouth. I tried to smile at her but it came out very awkward. Her eyes widened even more.She received a nudge from the boy beside her when he notices her gaze towards me. They must've been siblings because of the resemblance on their faces. They could be twins
Sebastian Acosta was too happy about the news that he made a quick arrangement of buffet celebration for the whole company. We were supposed to eat out but he changed his mind and immediately ordered for the function hall to be decorated.I shook my head, smiling, while eyeing Jupiter and his father talk with full enthusiasm with some other important persons in the company. Sir Sebastian even made a short speech earlier, praising Jupiter to the fullest because of this success.Monica was beside me with her pasta and steak while having her full attention on the phone. She seemed to be having a chat fight with somebody because of the way she’s tapping violently on her phone’s screen. My lips protruded as I resumed eating the chocolate cake on my plate.Jupiter then walked towards us after a few minutes of socializing with the others. He sat in between me and Monica who remained sneering at her phone. I cleared my throat awkwardly when he
Juno and Eugene were set to formally meet today. If it wasn’t for my fucked up schedule these past few days, they could’ve meet earlier this noon. However, Juno and I had to spend the whole day in the office to make up for the rest of our absences. I pushed back their meeting this night.I originally want to made a reservation for us three in a restaurant for this meet up. But then, Venus’ suspicions about Eugene made me change my mind. As much as possible, I don’t want to be seen together with him anymore in public.I sighed out in exhaustion after I was done setting the dining area. We left the office at five in the evening so I have no more time left to cook for us. I just made some orders for our dinner and decorated the dining quickly.After I was satisfied with the set up, I went to my room so I can finally shower and change into a much more comfortable pair of clothes. I wore a plain white sweatshirt and a black cargo
To complete my look for tonight, I swiped the red lipstick on my bottom lip and puckered my mouth in front of the mirror. I then twirled to have a have a glimpse of my outfit from the back. Perfect! I smirked in satisfaction.I gabbed my bag and strutted out of my bedroom with Pickle following my every move. Lydia smiled widely at me when I reached the small living room of my apartment. I thankfully smiled back at her for visiting me here in surprise and bringing my leftover stuff in the mansion. I was able to pick some accessories for my clothes because of her.“You look lovely as ever, Juno.” The old woman complimented me and my heart swelled in happiness. I’m grateful to have her as my second parent when Mom and Dad passed away.“Thank you so much, Lydia! I’m really sorry to leave you here on the day of your visit. I promise to be quick!”Lydia shook her head, smiling at me in assurance. “It&rsquo
I yawned tiredly before plopping on the soft mattress of the hotel room Eugene rented in for us. We just arrived and I felt so tired from that two hour drive. And not to mention, I actually haven’t sleep decently.I yawned once again as I snuggled closer on the pillows and throwing the comforter on my body. I’m still on my jeans and it’s surely uncomfortable as fuck but my sleepiness won over my comfort. I heard Eugene groaned at my behavior.“Jupiter, come on! We didn’t come here for you to sleep. Let’s eat breakfast outside and try some of their beach activities.” He nagged and I hummed tiredly in response. “Later, love.”“Jupiter! I’m hungry!”“Can’t you eat on your own? Please, I’m tired. Let me sleep for at least two hours.” I accidentally raised my voice at him and regret immediately struck my chest when shock and pain register
