It's Sunday and tomorrow is the first day of school after the semestral break. The eighteen-year-old girl is busy preparing her luggage to bring back to the city where she's now pursuing her management course. Cass Lim is a loner person, she doesn't want to make many friends. She has only one close friend that she meets during her third year in the said university. She just comes from an ordinary family that cannot afford to buy leisure things for themselves. Cass's dream in life is to become one of the successful individuals someday. she has a simple and pretty appearance, fair skin that she inherits from her Chinese great grandparents, black and shoulder-length hair that makes her looks unnoticed in just one glance. After saying goodbye to her parents she trotted to the nearest bus station going to city A.
Traveling all day can be tiring so after putting her things orderly, she drowns herself in the bathroom. Done cleaning herself she climbs up in her bed and immediately drifted to sleep.
In the west part of city A, a tall handsome young man was standing on the balcony of his room looking at the beautiful night view of the neighboring place across his villa. It's been 4 years that he left this city to study abroad. And now he needs to go back right after his graduation because the health of his father is getting worst day by day. Their business will be taken over to him and he doesn't have any other choice is to agree with it otherwise they would lost their many years of hard work establishing this company. Josh Stanley is the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Steve Stanley who owns the so-called Stanley Manufacturing in city A. Its business nature is to manufacture a construction supply. Josh is a very good-looking man that every girl wishes to be with him. But because of his cold and aloof personality, nobody has the nerve to approach him easily.
Standing for several minutes on the balcony Josh felt tired and began to feel sleepy. Striding towards his king-size bed Josh sigh and turn off his bedside lamp then lays down to sleep.
The long night of slumber is over, Cass was awakened by the ringing of her alarm clock which she usually set to make sure she won't be late with her class in the morning. After having light breakfast, readying herself for the first day of school in her last semester before graduating, she waited for a taxi on the roadside not far from her apartment. While standing on the roadside her mind is wandering somewhere she didn't notice the luxury car is running so fast, it's about to pass by, and there's a small part of the uneven road near where she's standing which has water stock on it cause by the light rain last night. She was surprised by the sudden feeling of wet in her upper part when the luxury car passes in front of her. Lowering her head to take a look at herself she immediately frowns and cast a death glare at the disappearing car while she can't help but curse the driver of that car only in her mind. Luckily the water that splashes in her uniform is not that dirty it can be clean by just wiping some tissue on it. Inside the taxi despite her frowning face, she looks outside the window and accidentally sees the towering building of Stanley manufacturing which she also dreams to work in that big company someday. While looking at it she catches a glimpse of the luxury car without her knowing she curse the person whoever driving that car.
The taxi stopped in front of the school, Cass paid the driver then got out and follow the crowd of student who was also going inside the campus.
Meanwhile, Josh wakes up 30 minutes later than his usual waking time. So by the time he wakes up he is pushing himself to go to their company because today is his first day being the CEO of Stanley manufacturing, every department was obligated to attend the meeting in order to report the company status for him to be aware of everything related with their company. He is driving his car faster than he thought. His mind was occupied with the matters in the company forgetting his surroundings while on his way. Arriving at the company he parks his car in the reserve parking area for him then got out. He directly goes inside the elevator to his office floor. He was greeted by his secretary informing him of his schedule for the day. He just nodded his head before entering his spacious office. Looking around his office he sighs and sat down on his set while opening his laptop. After 30 minutes he heard someone knocking on his office door; he answered, " come in". Peeking his head in the door Ted said, " Sir the meeting was about to start in 5 minutes". Without looking at the speaking person, he just said, " got it ". Then he began to stand up and proceed to the other door going to the conference room next to his office.
The long day is over Cass immediately goes home to her apartment after class is done. She cooks instant noodles and eats them coupled with a biscuit as her dinner. Then began to do her homework and was assigned part of their thesis. She lost track of time and she fell asleep without her knowing while doing her assignments.
She was tired of her first day because she overloads her subject in order to cope up her subject that she hasn't got last semester because her enrollment fee was delayed that cause her not to be able to enroll all the subject for the first semester.
At 9 pm in the evening, Josh is walking in the parking area when he got a call from his mother telling him to come over to their ancestral home to join them for a family dinner. Without hesitation, he agrees to his mother's request. Arriving at their ancestral home, Josh got out of his car silently and entered the living room where he saw his mother smiling while looking in his direction. With his emotionless aura he said, " Mom, I know you miss me but seeing your smile like that it gives me a goosebump sensation". Glancing at her son Estella rolled her eyes to her son, " Son, you are now the CEO of our family company I am looking forward to the day that you will introduce a girl to be my daughter-in-law ", Estella said affectionately. But before Josh could respond to his mother, his father interupted him, " Don't rush your son, Estella, for now, you will just focus on running our company, when you already familiarize every detail in our business then you can think of finding your future wife". Just then the maid entered and said, "Master, madam, young master your dinner is ready" then the maid immediately left. They all stood up and make their way to the dining room. The family of three enjoyed their meal happily.
Inside the car, Josh was driving his way home. His mind was a little distracted by his mother's words earlier. Up until now, he did not think that someday, somehow those words would bother him. Unknowingly, josh thinks about what kind of girl could capture his heart. He doesn't want to set any standard, as long as they could get along with him, that's all that matters. To everyone's eyes, he is a cold and aloof person, unbeknown to them it's just his mask in order to steer clear of a prickly individual especially now that he is the new CEO of Stanley Manufacturing. It's already 10 pm in the evening when Josh arrives at his villa and quickly parking his car in his garage then striding inside his home. After taking a quick shower, he proceeds to his study room to finish some of his works in the company. .......... The following day seems to be ordinary to her. After her class in school, she immediately goes home to her apartment. Before sleeping she wil
At 7 o'clock in the evening, Cass and Liz were about to enter the shades bar. They're here to celebrate Cass's birthday and it's only the two of them because they're not the ones who make many friends. They don't like hanging around except if there's a special occasion that they felt like celebrating to some other place like this. After entering inside they choose the corner that has less crowded and ordered a drink for two. They just watch the people from afar while drinking silently. So they did not notice the unfamiliar figure sitting in the opposite corner where they were in. .......... Josh has always been punctual, so he came earlier than Robert agreed time. Sipping his wine he looks around but someone catches interest in his sight. The two quite beautiful ladies in the opposite corner where he sat. He silently scrutinized them from head to foot, he felt something that he couldn't explains it was. Without him knowing Robert has already found him and was also lo
Josh POV He was thinking the girl he just drop by to her home, she's beautiful and different to the other girls that he always meet. She seems not interested in him damn even in her bare face she is still attractive, simple but elegant. Something inside him says he want to know her more. But he felt erratic having this feeling he doesn't know why and what it is. The only one he know now that he did not feel this feeling before. He was lying in his bed feeling a little dizzy from the drink they take earlier. Its 2am in the morning and finally he drifted off to slumber unfortunately even in his deep sleep that face he encounter in the bar followed him in his dream. Its 10am in the morning Josh is still sleeping when his doorbel rang. He was annoyed by the non stop sound of the bell and force himself to get out of his bed, making his way to see who's disturbing his morning sleep. His mind went blank when he finally see who's in his door
Time pass by rapidly, and Cass graduation has already done. Now she has to start applying for a job that suits her studied knowledge. She never knows what is coming for her in the future, so she was thinking of applying to the most prominent establishment in these places hoping for a vacant position. For her except for the experience, all other qualifications are fit for any position. The reason why she has some sort of reluctance because she has no experience but she has to take the beat no matter what, trying is not a harmful thing to do especially in applying for a job. It's been a week after sending applications to different companies in city A including Stanley Manufacturing hoping for a vacant position that would fit her right in. Thinking about that, Cass Lim just hopes to be hired in any of them. Today's weather is good, so after pondering what to do she decided to buy some of her needs. At Stanley Manufacturing CEO office, Josh is looking through the p
The working hour would usually start at eight o'clock but today Josh come to his office an hour before the work will start, deep inside him he anticipated her this time. From the last time, they meet she is always in his mind. Sipping his coffee while occationally looking outside his wall to ceiling window, he leans his back in his chair. Cass is standing on the roadside a few meters away from her apartment waiting for a taxi to pass by, after a minute of waiting finally she hailed the taxi and got inside. She told the driver where she is going, when she arrived at the huge building of Stanley manufacturing she can't deny to herself that she was in awe and almost can't believe that she would be working in this company from now on. Upon arriving she trotted towards the front desk, but before she could speak the person in charge smiled then greet her politely, " Good morning Miss may I know who is your name please?" Cass answered," Goodmorning, I am Cass Lim
Cass entered her apartment, she closes the door but did not go directly into her room instead, she leans her back on the door and pondered for a while. Does she think if this continues who's a woman that won't fall for that outstanding man? only an idiot one. A few minutes later cass is preparing for her dinner in the kitchen after cooking she immediately fed herself then wash the dishes. She got in a shower before going to bed because of her work she felt a little exhausted maybe because she's new for the work so her system is still in adjustment. When her back touches on the bed she immediately drifted away to sleep. Whoever in the spacious villa, Josh called his best friend Robert to come for a drink or two. Robert who knows his best friend better, said " You know? I have never seen you like this before and it never crosses my mind that someday my best buddy will be infatuated by a girl who he just meet." he said with a teasing smile. Josh stared at him wit
It's been a long night, and I'm not sure if it is fun going to a pub when I need to wake up early for work after tonight. My eyes feel gritty, and there's an ache stretching across my shoulders maybe this is because I slept in one position the whole night. Damn, how I wish I could crawl back into my bed until the pain in my shoulder will dissipate before I could get up and start another day for this week. But I was perplexed when I looked at my alarm clock on my bedside table and found out that I only have thirty minutes to prepare to go to the office. So I am rushing everything to consume the time, less than I usually did. Truly the time comes fast as it was. In the blink of an eye, it becomes an hour. An hour becomes a day and a day becomes a week without realizing it. Today, I become one month working as executive assistant of my outstanding Yummy boss. Oh my God! what was I thinking? The time and days that we spend working together make us more familiar with each other. We work
I felt tired while walking towards the parking area of the famous cuisine in city A. This day I only stayed three hours in my office after that three hours, I was out for a client after a client meeting. Even for lunch I still had to talk to a business partner. I don't even have time to break at least an hour of not facing those opportunists individual. I inwardly sigh at that thought, I can't do anything about it that's how business works. I sat down inside my car, my driver who is sitting in the driver's seat to look at me through the rearview mirror of my car, and I don't need to question him what was that look for. I told him to send me home. He nodded politely before starting the car and drove away through the crowded road. It is a wee hour so naturally, there's a traffic jam along the way but fortunately, it is not that bad this time, we still arrive early as we expected. As I reached the door of my house, I took out my keys I open the door and went inside. I place the
