The rays of the morning sun tease me as I squirm on the bed with a slight soreness. I love this feeling in the morning. It's not like I didn't love it that morning— I did but messed up the entire thing.
I open my eyes with a wide smile to find Christian's eyes on me. To my surprise, he is half-laid next to me, darting his eyes on the phone.
Wasn't he staring at me that morning until I woke up? Or was it only for the first time? Now, I'll have to get used to it, huh? I frown, gritting my teeth at him. He doesn't even realise that I have woken up. I move on the bed deliberately to grab his attention.
And it work
ChristianI haven't expect her to be here so soon. I don't even know if she heard me but she knows I was talking to Richard. Heck! I hope she doesn't go furious after overhearing me.When I scan her reaction well, it tells a different story. I walk towards her and get closer as she curiously stares at me."Yes," I say.She parts her lips to speak something and again seals them for a while."What— what was he saying?" She sounds desperate, still, calm which I didn't expect. She didn't hear anything otherwise, she would have screwed me until now.I let out a sigh.<
Kane "We need to divide the staff in a few corps for further progress. There should be a change in the entire system", I say, making a column on the processor. "It's gonna be a lengthy process, Sir", Nicole says from behind. "But we don't have an option left. Christian is finally acting like a boss— leaving for anywhere anytime and dumping work on the employees. So, basically, the CEO is a family man now and he can't be the same as before", I can't help laughing. "That's true. I can't believe he used to leave work only for six hours of sleep", Nicole adds. "Better for you also, right?" IvannaJust when I feel like everything around me is going to be dark, he pulls me against himself, locking me into his arms. Everything happened so quickly that it takes me a few seconds to feel the terror inside me.My body ripples against him as I gawk at him with my pounding heart, stunned and drained."Hey, I had already held you," he chuckles.I can't utter a single word. The moment which took only five seconds to occur is roaming inside my head. My heart throbs faster, catching my breath."Why did you—," terror fills inside me as I can't understand why he had to do that stupid prank with me. I sense my voice breaking.

ChristianI can hear Ivanna breathing heavily after speaking about everything she has inside; even though I know there are still a lot of things that remained unsaid between us, piled up for the right time.I don't know when the right time is gonna arrive but, certainly, I'm not gonna let her go, no matter how hurtful and deep the secrets are, I just can't let her go.I hold her hand upon my chest and turn around. I can see her face shining rosy through the bonfire. Her eyes glisten with eye contact, filled with an urge— as if she badly wants me to respond.Spiralling my arms around her waist, I pull her up from the ground as our noses touch. She closes her eyes immediately as a sign of insistence
Christian After dinner, we sat near the bonfire downstairs. She is comfortably occupying my lap, resting her behind on my chest when I'm securing her with my arms into the quilt. She wasn't talking to me the whole time at the dinner table and I knew she wanted me to convince her. I felt like teasing her a bit and didn't even go to the bedroom after dinner. She might have been restless enough and came down to me, wrapped in a quilt and directly crawled on my lap. "Wasn't Mrs Scott angry?" I laugh, breaking the silence finally. "As if you care. You were chilling out," she scoffs. "No. I was waiting for you" "Huh?" "I knew Mrs. Scott can't stay away from me longer. At least, not at night," I giggle. "Don't— just don't. I'll be angry for real," she blurts out. "Oh! That means you weren't angry for real until now?" Pushing my fingers into her deep silky hairs, I gently
Christian We're lying on the open meadow, still staring at the sky. At first, I didn't feel like watching the lanterns because I was more interested to watch her. But she literally scolded the hell out of me and forced me to look up there. According to her, I would eventually watch her anytime but she could never make me see the beauty around me all the time. Later, it felt great and my eyes soothed with the bright view. I have never thought to spend my time idly looking at the sky. Even looking at myself in the mirror was a waste of time for me. But this girl! She didn't change at all. I remember the evenings when I used to study extra lessons even after finishing the homework. She used to yell from her balcony and call me at my balcony. Our homes were just a few feet apart. She used to make me feel the breeze of the night, watching the stars and fireflies. Those days were something I would never forget. She was
Christian"Alright, so—", I tuck the strands of her hair behind her ear as she places her chin on my chest, curiously waiting for my answer. "You don't like it when I call you Mrs Scott?""It's not the case. I just asked why you are so formal in this", she rolls her eyes.It cracks me up."I'm not formal. But whenever I call you Mrs Scott, it reminds me every time that you're mine", I smile.She folds her lips and breaks eye contact, playing with the button of my shirt again. I wonder what she finds so enjoyable to play with these buttons."So, you mean the last name i
IvannaI'm sore. My entire body feels so damn numb after this workout— almost five months later I have visited the gym. I think it was a wrong move for me to reach the campus directly from the gym. I still have an hour before the class starts. The campus is filling gradually."Hey, girl", Emily joins me from somewhere."Hey, good morning. You're so early today", I roll my eyes."Well, who can turn down handsome men?" She beams, looking somewhere— just like an idiot!"What?" I exclaim."Huh! Nothing", she mumbles.Latest chapter
