Sidney wondered why her mother had hanged up the phone. Could it be that she knew the Humphreys? If the answer was yes, then what could she be hiding?
The phone on her desk rang.
When she picked the receiver, her mother's voice prank into rushed words.
“Sidney, I’m sorry I hanged up on you, I was in the meeting when you called. I will talk to you later today, maybe tonight. Bye, darling.” She said and hanged up.
This time, Sidney's mind was at rest that at least she would hear something from my mother later.
When her mother called that night she told her that the Humphrey she knew was her father's business partner. So when Sidney had slept with the impression that night and woke up the following day had forgotten all a suspicion.
Eyes still closed to prolong the dream, Bradley pulled the pillow closer. His creative mind had turned the pillow to the woman he had come to love so much.
The rest of the evening was uneventful to Sidney because this wasn’t really her thing. Parties like this, with men talking business and the women gossiping about each other or the latest trend in fashion wasn’t what she was used to.Brad introduced Sidney to his father and mother and then his sister so she wouldn’t have to be bored.Brad knew there was a lot about each other they had to learn, but he could tell she wasn’t really enjoying herself, and he wasn’t exactly available to keep her company.The truth was, he really liked her and he would appreciate it if he didn’t blow it before he got a chance with her. Valerie wasn’t exactly good company at the moment as she couldn’t handle the alcohol she had been downing since she arrived and his sister had to take her to the guest room to lay down for a while before they can call her a taxi.Finally, when the party was already slowing down a notc
Sidney pushed the elevator button as she typed a message on her phone for her mother. She had been trying to call her for a few days now but it kept going to the voice mail so she decided to text her.She was already two minutes late for the meeting she was schedule d to have this morning at the office. She also had a meeting scheduled for the afternoon to meet a client for lunch.She jabbed the button on the panel for the floor number, as she was already getting irritated by the elevator that decided to crawl today of all days. She muttered under her breath and promised to take the stairs the next time she was late. It seemed to be a better option than taking a crawling elevator, even though she knew that was nearly an impossible task with her heels and her dress.She breathed out a sigh of relief when the car of the elevator finally pinged and opened on her floor. She stepped out of the elevator."You'
Bradley took her to a rooftop restaurant with the second best view in town. The best view was Sidney. She was wearing a short fitted blue dress that exposed her back. It stopped at her knee and had only one sleeve. The color brought out her eyes and made them pop, and filled out her brown colored hair. She was a light skin woman with caramel soft, almost milk white skin.The dress molded to her body, showing off all those curves she loved to hide.Bradley had been checking her out from the moment he arrived at her apartment to pick her up for their dinner. His jaw had dropped to the floor and he was unable to pick it up for a moment. Sidney was a very beautiful woman that made his heart beat faster than normal any time they were in close proximity. It was as if it recognized her and always had to acknowledge her presence.It was difficult for him to control himself of his stares at her across the table. He couldn't even focus on t
The next evening, Sidney sat with Valerie in her apartment. She had called her over to tell her about her date with Bradley."Did you kiss him?" Valerie asked, as she sat down next to Sidney and pulled on her hand.Sidney nodded with a small smile. "Well technically, it wasn't an actual kiss. But still, it rocked my world.Valerie squealed. " That sounds very amazing." She told Sidney."He was the perfect gentleman and even when I invited him up for tea, he behaved. He kept his hand to himself, and didn't try anything funny." She told Valerie."See what I told you!" Valerie said, hitting Sidney's shoulder playfully. "I knew he was a gentleman. Thank God you saw that for yourself."Sidney shrugged. "Well, I've known that way before then. We spent a couple of days together at the cabin, remember." She said.Valerie grinned. "That's true. I just know that he wants you the first time
It turned out that Stone's invitation for the weekend was to a golf resort and hotel in Huddersfield, near Bradford, called Grayson Carter. Stone had called Sidney to tell her about the details the night before, and also to tell her that he had booked two rooms for Sidney and Bradley in the hotel, and they could leave by Sunday morning.The things one would do for their jobs. No one wants to lose their jobs just because they can't be a game player. Doing your job appropriately involved playing some sort of game, or sacrificing something it doing some things one wouldn't normally do.The good thing was that Mr. Williams always appreciated her efforts and all of his employees in the company, and that was enough motivation to go beyond to get the job done.When they arrived at the resort, Bradley told Sidney that the resort was owned by his father's friend's cousin; Mr. Grayson. He told her that his family and his father's best friend's family vis
It had been a week!A whole week after the break-in happened, a week since she had the dream about her father, and a week since she and Brad started seeing each other.Sidney decided to tell Valerie about all of it. About the dating and the dream.She had been reluctant to tell anyone about her dream at first, scared that no one would believe she was the same, so she didn’t tell anybody, not even her mother.When Valerie came into her office that afternoon, she motioned for her to sit on the couch, and then she sat with her.To be sincere, she didn’t know what Valerie’s response would be, but she was sure she wouldn’t look at her as if she was crazy. If anything, she would help her find out what it was about.“What's wrong?” Valerie asked with a worried expression.Sidney sighed, thinking of the best way to tell her about Brad. She thought it was best to come out right with it. "Br
The attention of an attentive, fine, and handsome escort she would have tonight was all part of Sidney's fantasy evening and as long as she remembered that this wasn’t a date, she would be fine. She felt that the less dating, the less problem for her.Bradley had texted her when she came down from her apartment to say that he would meet her at the parking lot of the building where the event would take place. He said he had to help his friend out with some of the arrangements of the night.“I’m sorry I couldn’t be there to pick you up myself. That’s why I had to send you a limo,” he told her over the phone. "I hope it's alright."“It’s alright." She chuckled. "At least, I’m riding there in style,” she said with a grin. "I should be there soon."There was a pause, then he said. “Okay, see you soon!”“Yeah, I will see you soon too. Just don’t disappear on me toni
At some point during the event, Sidney developed a massive headache and Bradley took her to his best friend's room upstairs in the hotel next door to the hall being used.Sidney laid down and tried to sleep a little. The end of the event was still two hours away, and an hour's sleep would help her head aching less than it was aching right now.The hotel was a three-star hotel and Sidney found the reason it was so soon enough. The wall of the hotel room was so thin that she could hear the couples next door having sex. She pulled the pillow over her head and pressed it down.It was a minute past eleven o’clock in the evening. While she had nothing against couples having sex, she hated the fact that they were that loud about it knowing the walls of the hotel room were that thin. The oohs and ahhs were adding to her already pounding hard head and the pillow over her head did nothing much to block the noise out. She closed her eyes in a silent
