"I'm ready sir," Henry's chauffeur reported immediately after Henry stepped out with his briefcase. Henry smiled at the man. "Why don't you take a break today? I'll drive myself." The reply provoked a smile on Athe driver's face. Ever since he became Henry's driver, he had only driven Henry to several places on specific occasions. Henry would prefer to drive himself to work and other places. The chauffeur stepped aside and Henry stepped into the Lamborghini which had already been pulled from the parking lot and was parked at the entrance to the mansion. He mounted the driver's seat and drove away. ****Eve wiped her drowsy eyes with the edge of her palms. Her alarm clock was yet to give the signal and this meant that it wasn't time to wake up yet. The heavy knocks on her door persisted. It had to be Olivia or Jen because they were only the ones who would show up to interrupt her sleep that Sunday morning. "I'm coming!" She mumbled and grabbed her night robe. She slipped it arou
The revelation caused Eve to remain transfixed in her spot. She stared at Henry blankly, trying to ascertain the level of his seriousness on the issue.He was dead serious.When he noticed her surprised expression, he exploded into a burst of laughter that echoed all over the room and Eve couldn't be more confused.She began taking strides toward him. Her legs felt heavy but she didn't stop. Henry stood before with a bright smile and soon, his bright smile was replaced by an impish grin."You must be joking!" Eve asserted, trying not to mince her words.He swung his head from left to right in filial objection. "You are lying to me!"Henry didn't stop shaking his head and at that point, Eve needed no one to let her know that Henry was blurting out the truth. From his look, his gesture and his mode of communication, she could tell that he meant every word.Doomed!She was fucking doomed as the thought of her plan which had just gone down the drain fluttered in her mind. She took steps
It all brings her back to one miserable circle. Her miserable circle of trying to get away from Henry's web. If Mira was his sister and not his wife as she presumed, then she was no way near to achieving her revenge goal.And the hate club?She turned around, imagining the disappointing looks they'll display once they discover that Henry outsmarted her.Henry began taking steps toward her and she quickly turned away. She couldn't look at his face, it was haunting.He broke into a wicked laugh and Eve couldn't open her eyes."Turn around and face me, Eve. Didn't you want to be a smart ass? Turn around and defend yourself!" Henry whisper-yelled.She didn't turn around to face him or give any reply. She was blaming herself for jumping to a conclusion when she should have worked out more on Mira's identity.Henry lifted a finger and continued speaking. "I remember when we went to see my parents the other day, most of the issues you raised were questions centred around my wife and right n
Henry didn't take off his arms around Eve even though she was trying to break free."I'm sorry for everything Eve!"She lowered her head and watched the tears rolling from her cheeks drop on the carpet. She wiped her running nose with the edge of her palm and turned around.Henry didn't take his hands off her. He was looking straight into her red eyes and was trying so hard to withhold himself from kissing her."You always apologise but end up doing the same thing and.." Eve was still speaking when Henry's desire took charge of his senses.In a flash, he pulled her toward him, pressed himself to her chest and locked lips with her. She tried to break free by sending strikes on his back but Henry wouldn't break away.He pulled away from the kiss for a moment, directed his lips to her left ear and mumbled "I want you."Eve found herself melting in his arms like wax. Yes, she wanted him, so badly that her toes were beginning to curl up as in between her thighs got slippery.She shut her e
Eve stopped pacing and moved closer to him. " I remember your exact words the other day. You said it was best if we stayed away from each other. You even said something about your presence in my life as a purveyor of harm so I think it's time you honour your words. Let's end this once and for all." She said."You don't get it!" Henry flared up and ran his hands through his hair.Eve's eyes widened in surprise. "I don't want to get any damn thing. What I want is for the both of us to end this pointless relationship not just today but for good," she replied and positioned both her hands on her hips.Henry began taking steps toward her and when she gave him the stink eye, he stopped."I said don't you ever come close to me again.""You will only end this affair when I say so." Henry declared while staring Eve straight in the face.She gasped, marvelling at the authority in his voice and the audacity in his eyes. She swung her head from left to right. "You must be fucking joking.""I'm no
"I asked you to draft me a fucking schedule not bring me a report!" Henry yelled and gave the table a tight slap.Phil arched a brow. It was either he misunderstood the directive or his ear had issues taking instructions that morning."Get me last week's report!"He heard it loud and clear from Henry. "Don't just stand there like a potato. Get the hell out of my office and bring in that schedule immediately." Henry screamed at Phil."Of course, sir!" Phil stammered. He gave a slight bow and walked out of the office wondering why Henry was acting edgy that morning. First, he witnessed how Henry snapped at one of the messengers who came to get his briefcase a while ago and now, he received a backlash for an offence he didn't commit."Eve!" Phil called out to her and pulled open the door to their office. He stared at the vacant armchair and shook his head after a sigh.Eve didn't show up at work the previous day and today, she wasn't in her seat. If she was at work that morning, he wo
Dane opened his plans wide before Henry. "Can you please tell me what triggered the change I'm seeing in you that I just can't explain? I know you are sad that things ended up between you and Eve but the last time I checked, Mira..."Dane was still speaking when Henry sharply cut in. "I went to her apartment.""You went to her apartment?" Henry acknowledged with a nod."After Mira confronted me, I decided to see Eve in her place and gloat over the fact that her plan to expose me before my wife went down the drain but then she turned the tables around." He replied.Dane shook his head in disagreement. "She didn't turn the tables around boss, she fulfilled your wish."Henry darted his gaze from Dane to the table. He proposed the separation and now that Eve had ended things between them, he was losing his sanity."Is it because she went against your policy or is it because you like her?" Dane asked.Henry gave his forehead a delicate scrape and began to stammer. "Like her? Me...I..Dont.
"Come in!" Phil responded from the inside and continued scribbling down his notes. He didn't take his eyes off the manuscript.The door to the office was pushed open and Eve walked in, hanging a handbag around her left arm."Hey, Phil!"He lifted his head and allowed the pen to slip through his grasp. He sighed in relief and threw his head back. "Thank Goodness Eve!"She smiled and settled on the chair opposite him. She cast her gaze on the messy table and noticed the littered files and papers."Did you miss me?"Phil arched a brow. Of course, he missed her. Her absence for the past two days had proved to him that two heads are better than one."Where the hell have you been?"She crossed her legs and cleared her throat loudly. "Fixing myself. I've been fixing myself."Phil stared at her with a blank expression. "Fixing yourself?"She flashed a quick smile. "That's by the way. I'm back now and that's what counts."Phil began collecting the files from the table. "You know what? The boss
