"Wear this and take some bath."
Zach handed me his white t-shirt and black jogging pants. He also has tools here. I was still amazed how beautiful this place was. This place is all wooden, there are few furnitures and the thing that caught my eyes was the white king size bed on the floor.
"And you? Can't you take a bath? You're wet too," I said as I was eyeing the towel resting on his shoulder.
"I'll cook first, you said you'te hungry."
I was caught off guard. He will cook for me? Suddenly I was embarrassed! I should be the one serving him, not him cooking for me.
"I-I'm not hungry anymore."
When I said that, my stomach rumbled. I bit my lip.
"I see you're not lying when you said you're not hungry anymore," he said and started to take food out of the refrigerator.
I was embarrassed so I smile at him. "I'll be fast, okay? I'll help you after I'm done."
He smirked at me and went on to cooking. Gosh. He looked so sexy in th
"Hi Romeo!"He eyed me suspiciously. Why wouldn't he? I was smiling from ear to ear when I entered the office. Zach and I went in at the same time but we used the basement as our entrance so that no one could see us. It was still dreaming right now because it was nice, really... To got to know him like that."Ohh, looks like someone got laid last night! You've so much energy! Am I right, Rose?" he said as I was still sitting at my desk."That's right! And you're smiling widely in a Tuesday morning! Come on, tell us!" Rose agrees with Romeo.Who wouldn't enjoy morning when you woke up, Zach was beside you? Yes, I'm currently lacked of sleep but it was all gone when he opened his eyes this morning while looking at me.
Miggy sat on his swivel chair. Why was he acting so rude? Oh I get it. You could know someone's true color when he or she no longer benefits from your life.He handed me a paper. "I need this for my first meeting with Mr. Esqueza."I looked at it, pure snacks that could be order at the grocery. My forehead frowned. "W-why do I even need to buy it? Don't you have assistant?"I suddenly felt nervous because he might know what Zach and I have. I don't know why but I felt uncomfortable right now."You're doing nothing, Marie. This company will appreciate it if you turn yourself to be useful."I remember Zach and I chatting earlier. Did he read? Apparently not because he would immediately ask if he had read it."And you're just chatting with your boyfriend?"Shit. He saw it! But ma
He was the one who suggested this grocery store. He handed me a cap to hid my face. He did the same eventhough I doubted it. He still looks like a boss even though he's wearing a hat.I looked at our hand as he held it as we entered the supermarket. Everyone was still giving him a look eventhough he was wearing a hat. They would almost stop what they were doing and stared at us.I did my best to hide my face so that they wouldn't know who he was with. But women, on the other hand, look down at our hand holding each other, at the same time raising their eyebrows. I wanted to laugh because I myself would also raise an eyebrow at myself when I saw myself in the mirror.Zach wrapped his hand around my waist, as if we didn't argue awhile ago. He was getting used to it. Him, snaking his hand on my waist. I won't complain like hello? This was like winn
Their eyes focused on me. It was really hard to make Zach annoyed! He would do everything to get what he wanted! Yes, I understood what he wanted to convey again. He would leave me with no choice but to accept his offer."Villafuente, the CEO is asking you. You've got to answer him right away!" Sir Adrian rebuked my thoughts."S-sorry, sir...""You're a stupid newbie," he whispered.I blinked. I was offended. I looked back and forth between Zach and Sir Adrian. They heard it too. I knew I was wrong, all of them respected Zach so much and I looked like someone who respect him less just because I didn't answer right away."And that's how you treat a woman, Adrian?" Zach asked in a gloomy tone."Sir. Esqueza, it's not right---""Answer. Me. Question. Now."&n
"Iris, what happened?"Ashley's voice was really concerned. She was holding two dresses and she placed them on the side of the bed before finally approaching me."A-ah, it's nothing, Ashley. Don't mind me," I lied and wiped the tears from my eyes."Come on, you're a part of this family so basically, I'm already your sister. You can tell me anything," she comforted me.No. You can't tell her what her brother did to you... My mind said.I breathe heavily. "I-I just miss my family so much."It was somehow the truth. I missed them too this might be mixed emotion. I wouldn't be in a situation like this if not for them, if not just for daddy, I'd walked out and never show up again. I didn't deserve this. I had no idea that this was what he wanted; just to hurt me."You want to see them?" Ashley handed me a tissue.
"Iris, what will you wear for the party tonight?"I was stunned by Grandma Belle's question. I looked at Zach who also had no idea what she was saying.Ashley walked in, holding dresses and shoes. "I'm sorry, granny! I forgot to tell them. So Mr. and Mrs. Zach Esqueza, we have a party tonight. Make sure you get home just in time.""Party?" Zach asked confusingly. "You didn't tell us last night.""Because I forgot about it, Zach," she explained when Zach face hardenes. "I need to collect some funds for my outreach program. We will give it to my selective foundation since many areas have been destroyed from typhoon," Ashley said. "This will be fun! I swear!"I just smiled. This was the party she was telling me about. I have no idea what to wear later. Maybe I could choose from what Ashley gave me."Can you leave
"Do you have to go back on stage?" I asked Zach anxiously after we ate. He was playing with my hands.I was getting nervous. I didn't know if I would win later. The woman in black seemed to be eager to date him. She suddenly disappeared like a bubble when I looked away from her.His mouth twitched. "You want to go home? And steal your date?"I laughed. "It's our last day here, why not? I don't know if I will win tonight."He touched my lower lip. "Your wish, my always command."Zach pulled me upright. I got excited when we were about to exit this party. It meant I didn't have to compete with other women. I was smiling from ear to ear, following him. Suddenly I bumped into Zach's back."Where. Are. You. Going?"I peeked at who it was. It was Ashley. She crossd her arms while raising her perfectly thread brow.
I was half asleep when someone removed my seatbelt and lifted me up. Even though I felt like it was just a dream, I knew who it was without even looking. I still closed my eyes, I didn't want to spoil the moment I was feeling. This was the first time he did it to me.He was changing. Though it wasn't too drastic but his hard heart was becoming soft a little, and that for me, was enough. We have been able to talk properly for a few days now. Who would have thought? Thas was our progress now even I've been so scared of him in the past.I didn't know how he did it. He was able to enter the house while I was being carried. He laid me on the soft bed. It wasn't my bed. I opened my eyes a little and saw Zach's room. I closed my eyes as soon as he covered me with blanket.The bed deepened on my side once a hand caressed my hair. Even with my eyes closed, I knew he was staring at me now.
