Ivanna I step inside the pitch-dark cabin and surge inside. There's no one at the desk. The receptionist told me Andrea is inside but I'm unable to locate her anywhere in the cabin."Good afternoon, Ivanna", a sharp voice comes from somewhere as I roll my eyes. My eyes finally land at the corner of that huge cabin. That woman is standing near a massive bookshelf that is filled with tons of books I can never think of reading. I have often avoided reading books with too much depth because I thought they were gonna drive me crazy. Andrea looks like in her late thirties. She has blonde hair and brown eyes. She's lean with enough stretch marks on her face which unexpectedly makes her look more gorgeous when she smiles.The anticipation that I was going through before entering the cabin starts decreasing with the sight of hers. I feel a kind of positive in her smile as if I can already trust this woman with all my hidden emotions."Good afternoon", I pass her a warm smile."I'm glad you'
IvannaI completed the research paper in less than an hour today and this is like breaking a record. I have been struggling with my work recently. Due to my messed-up schedules and awful incidents happening around me, I couldn't focus on the firm much. All thanks to Jane and Nora for handling it all like theirs. But I'm noticing we're lagging so much.My thirty day plan of researching the medicine out of rare seeds was about completed two days back. And I just realised that the whole month has passed and I haven't read a single topic related to it.Sucks!What have I been even doing?Nothing. "That's a lot of work, Ivanna", Tate shrugs, curling up her face as we walk through the corridor while figuring out how much work has to be done. "I know", I exhale deeply and reach the lobby to collect some information from the reception. The firm seems to be way too noisy today. I don't know what the hell they are gossiping about."What's going on, Tate?" I ask, skimming through the papers
Ivanna"Lord, girl! You did it!" She whistles on the call as if I achieved a gold medal or something. "Relax, Emily!" I sigh. "It was just the first session""And you liked Andrea. That's already a victory. Once you like your therapist, you know that half of your problems are solved. You know I was too unsure about Camden when I first met him. Especially when I knew he was a man and my problems were more like only women can relate. But he was so damn amazing. Seventy percent of my anxiety was gone after the first session with him. I can't thank him enough for whatever he did for me. Sometimes, family, friends, and your partner can't do those things for us that they can do. Basically, just trust Andrea and follow her instructions. We'll see a massive change in yourself and- ah Okay!" She laughs. "I don't wanna blab anymore""Thanks for wasting your time on me, Emily", I sigh."Yeah, right!" Her pressed voice comes. "Don't get started, Ivanna. Anyway, I'm glad and I hope Christian is h
Christian She was screaming to fire people. That was enough for me to realize how much angry and frustrated she was. She never raised her voice at her employees, let alone fired them. When Nora told me how she has been haunting everyone today, I couldn't believe that, even though I found half of the employees yawning and dozing right now. No doubt that poor employees were the victim of her anger which was eventually for me. I thought it was gonna be hard to convince her anymore. But to my surprise, a big smile comes across her beautiful face as she sees me standing in front of her with a bundle of roses she has asked for this morning. And definitely, I'm smiling at her. "What— what are you doing here?" She looks too stunned to speak as I inch closer to her."Did it ever happen that you asked something from me and I didn't give it to you?" I ask her with a smile.In the meantime, she jumps into my arms, taking me aback as I snake my left arm around her tightly, holding the roses w
ChristianWe went for a long ride on the motorbike and reached the beach to spend the rest of the night at the shore. She had been sounding so tired all the time but she managed to smile and enjoy the rest of it. We made love at the beach like that day but it wasn't short and rushed like before. When I was undressing her, she looked unsure like before and her eyes were filled with questions. She ended up asking me if I found her attractive like before. I used to understand her doubts about her actions before. She was never so open about it. But tonight, she finally asked for it. I kept telling her that she was the most beautiful woman on this earth for me. But she said that wasn't the answer to her question. She wanted to know if she was attractive. I was clueless about the term attractive. For me, she had been everything to me. My answer to her was complicated as much as her question was simple. "When we're addicted to love, the thing called 'attraction' merges with love. For me
ChristianTo my surprise, I discover her on a yoga mat, her eyes closed, facing the sun as she inhales and exhales deeply, holding her knees. She's sitting cross-legged, completely into a world I have no idea of.It's not that I didn't make noise while coming inside. I casually entered with enough loud footsteps. But she seems to be completely unconcerned. I have never seen her meditating before and it has me shocked yet I felt good to see her. I don't know for how long I have been staring at her while standing beside her until she squirms with a beep. I spot a tiny stopwatch near her. She slowly opens her eyes with a wider satisfactory smile on her face, still unaware of my existence. I wish it lasted longer. She looked so relieved when she was in meditation. Grabbing the stopwatch, she pauses as if she has finally realized I'm there. She tilts her head at me with a surprised smile."Hey, when did you come?" She asks."I don't remember exactly", I scratch the back of my head wh
Christian"Chris! Slow!" Ivanna squeals when I stumble upon the dressing table while buttoning my shirt. I had literally forgotten that I had to reach the office early today after I saw Ivanna on the balcony."I'm late", I groan. My phone is ringing continuously. One call after another one and I have dropped my tie for like ten times. I can't even make the knot properly as my hands give with another call. "I'm coming!" I howl at the call, gripping the phone between my cheek and shoulder while attempting to fix the stupid tie. It's already 7 and I'm still at home. "Tell me the progress""Sir, I'm confused", Nicole stutters."I can't believe you're confused. You better get trained again, Nicole. Just do an internship or for God's sake", I grunt. "This fucking tie""I'm sorry, sir. Don't fire me", Nicole whines from another end when I pull off the tie. "Then do what I have asked you to do. There's no point in being confused", I shrug. Just when I'm about to throw the tie away, I fee
ChristianAs I turn around, uninterested, I find Mr. Fox and Thea standing in front of me. She's as usual gazing at me with a smirk. They walk toward us and I drive my eyes away from them. "Good evening, Mr. Fox. What a pleasant surprise!" Dave beams, shaking their hand with him. "Good evening", Mr. Fox chuckles. "Actually, my wife keenly desired to attend the party. So, here I am""Ah! That's great. Good evening, Mrs. Fox", Dave shakes hands with Thea too. "You look beautiful""Thanks, Mr. Dave", Thea says and drifts her eyes at me. I don't know why the fuck she always stares at me for no reason. "Hello, Mr. Scott", she spreads her hand in front of me and there was no need for that. I clench my jaw and roll my eyes around. It would not look good if I turn her down in front of them. "Hello", I accept the handshake anyway. "Well, there's something called a compliment. You didn't give that to me"Unfortunately, Dave and Mr. Fox are way too busy to hear us."There are enough peopl
