"What are you doing, Miss. Hart?" Mr. Miller said, his eyes filled with amusement, and my body erupted in wrath at his dumb choice to back Sofia, and it forced me to work longer hours for Sofia, who had assaulted me first. Miller glances down at me as I approach him from his imposing height."Mr. Miller, why did you hold me accountable for something I had nothing to do with, although you knew exactly what happened?" I say this while folding my arms and restraining my voice, so I don't shout in his face.
"It was a smart move since others saw you smack hard on Miss.collins' face and I know you were simply claiming to be assaulted. Who are you to tell me what my discussions are right or wrong Miss. Hart?" Underneath, Mr. Miller's harsh demeanor was one of enjoyment.
Sofia and Mr. Miller were making me angrier by the minute, and I just wanted to murder them both. What's the point of putting up with Mr.Miller all over again when I can find a new job that doesn'
"Darcus, what the fuck are you doing? Why did you kiss me?" I screamed in frustration, and Mr. Miller and Hazel had no emotion in them at all, and their stance was rigid. Finally, I came up to him and slapped him across the face, and I gasped in agony as my palm struck a hard granite stone face."Are you all right, Ella?" As I cradled my damaged hand, Mr. Miller's voice contained an undercurrent of concern for me. How did my hand feel so much agony? Is he a human or vampire? How did I harm my hand slapping a human? What the heck am I thinking right now? Mr. Miller walked over to me and checked the palm of my hand. Mr. Miller's feet came to a halt as I moved back."You are concerned and have inquired as to my well-being when you forcibly kiss me, Mr. Miller. I am an engaged woman. How can you do that?" I snarled through my agony, and when Mr. Miller saw my struggle, he proceeded towards the desk and pulled out the medic kit, grabbing my right hand and forcing me t
I made my way to Mr. Miller's cabin and stayed back to avoid being seen eavesdropping in on their talk. As I stood in the shadows, I could hear a female voice scream. The stillness of the hallways made it easier to concentrate on what was being spoken."Darcus, what are you doing keeping that lady near to you? I told you to break off all ties with her." Said a woman's voice."When it comes to that lady, I'm not interested in her; it's just business. So don't interfere, mom." Mr. Miller's voice was icy."The stoic mask you wear hides your true feelings, and as your mother, I'm tired of you lying to me about it. Don't you still have emotions for her, despite the effort I've put into erasing the bond?" Then, in a rage, she said."It's time to go, Mom; you need to get out of here because I have work to do." However, Mr. Miller's remarks have a colder undertone of underlying resentment."Fine, but don't think I'll let this issue go. You meet me at home,
"I don't comprehend what's going on, Ella." asked my dad. I didn't answer my dad's call because I wanted to chase Miller away. As I marched towards the door, I took my phone from Mr. Miller's grasp, and before I could slam my door in his face, Mr. Miller stopped me as he stormed inside. Mr. Miller received a frown from me while Dad maintained a bewildered expression on his face. Hana and Luke stopped squabbling as they were gazing at me. Mr. Miller knew my father was utterly ignorant that his company employed me."I apologize to walk in like this, but I have to clear the things, Mr. Hart. I thought Ms.Hart that you always spoke the truth, but I was mistaken." I felt the weight of my father's stare fall on me, and the guilt that had been bubbling up inside of me surfaced."Mr. Miller, are you becoming involved in an issue that has absolutely nothing to do with you?" I inquired in a firm tone."Could you both please stop arguing and tell me wha
Tears fell as I lay on the bed, staring at the ceiling and reflecting on the events of that night. Why did I meet Darcus and agree to be his girlfriend is something I still regret today? My thoughts went back to the flashback and saw how everything played out.Flashbacks: Darcus and Ella's College Love StoryAfter my experience with Darcus in the canteen, whenever I passed a locker or went to class, he constantly flashed me a grin or looked at me. I always averted my glance in a bashful manner. All the females wanted Darcus' attention since he was such a handsome guy, and that I was the one who was receiving it made me feel butterflies in my stomach, and my pulse sped up when his eyes rested on me.After witnessing how Darcus looked at me, the other females on campus were hostile towards me, which continued for a few days after that. I was changing into my sports suit on that day when I saw the gang of cheerleader females walking towards me with
Hana had a lovely breakfast put on the table, and I turned my gaze towards the dad's room, which was still closed at this point. Hana's attention was drawn to me as I stood outside my father's door."Before waking you up, I talked with your father, who said that he didn't want to eat anything and would rather be left alone." Hana's addition made me feel worse, so I headed towards dad's door and knocked."Dad, please allow me to be completely honest with you and tell you everything." I express. But my father didn't answer, and it depressed me as I proceeded to the breakfast table, where I saw so much beautiful food, but my hunger had vanished."Thank you for the cheerful supper, Hana." I see Hana has already dressed to the nines, to which I respond with a grin. "Are you going back to work today?""It is not possible for me to sit and stew in my sadness; it is preferable to distract my attention with activity." Hana responds while munching on her breakfast.
"I hope you've planned Avery's send-off." Then, Mr. Miller switches back to business mode and changes the subject."All the preparations are underway, Mr. Miller, and I would want to express my gratitude for hiring Hana." As I approach the doorknob, I respond to Mr. Miller's nods as he returns to his work."Ella, have you told your fiancé that you're working with me? I'm wondering if you haven't told him yet." It drew my attention back to Mr. Miller as he asked a question. I narrow my eyes in his direction. Then I took a stomp towards him, my face contorted with rage."Hear me out, Darcus. That is none of your fucking concern, and you have already ruined my relationship with my father. The day I said yes to becoming your girlfriend was the worst day of my life. I wish I could go back in time to my college days and simply ignore you so that I wouldn't have to go through this again." Since yesterday, I've been itching to strike out at Darcus, which triggere
"What the fuck are you? Why didn't you tell anyone, and how can you still employ with asshole corporation? You can quit your job or file a complaint against him." I had Hana restrained by placing my hand on her shoulder to quell her rage."Hana, even if I file a complaint, it will be to no avail. Darcus has a unique ability to turn situations to his advantage. I attempted to resign as well, but Darcus framed a document establishing a three-year contract, which stated that if I wanted to leave, I would have to pay a lump sum amount to the company." Hana raised her eyes at my explanation, which I added dejectedly."Ella, are you serious? I never saw you give up in a situation before, and now that you've explained yourself, you've given up the fight. It could also be the case that you still harbor feelings for Darcus." Hana put her hands on her hips and looked at me with a suspicious expression.I took Hana's hand in mine and led her to the office building without
Mr. Miller's hands danced on my knees, and I was wholly absorbed in his hazel gaze, and I could feel my heart racing against my chest as Mr.Miller drew closer to me, and I pulled back thinking about James, and the charged air dissipated just like that, and I glared at Mr.Miller."I'm sorry, Mr. Miller, for the lateness. But, unfortunately, because the manager was ill, I had to drop her off at home before attending the meeting." Hana relieved the tension, and I moved away from Mr. Miller, who had shifted into his business model."It's all right, Ms. Lee; we're waiting for a client who is running late, so please take a seat." Then Hana nods and takes her place next to me.It wasn't long after that before the client arrived, and the man strode in with a team of bodyguards. The man appeared to be a male model, with grey eyes that pierced mine and a refined jawline as he ran his hand through his blonde hair to keep it in place. I see that Hana was taken in by t
