"Are you saying that someone..." the shadow show how the boss gripped the bottle he was holding and shattered, "someone knock you off!"The voice was so loud to bled their ears; echoed all over the room and vibrated the glass table they have.

I responded with my usual bitcy voice."Your face is red, do you have a fever?" Jackson put the back of his hand on my neck to check my temperature. "It's a bit hot,""Really? Am I?" I also feel my neck, cheeks, and forehead to see if he's right.Am I blushing that much?! Even in our way to parking lot, I can't wait to see Raven leaning on the car, waiting for me to arrive.I'm sta
