Kyle Waugh wants something from Dawn. That's all. They decide to give this marriage a go for one year, and if it works out, Dawn will become the senior design editor in Kyle's parent firm and receive a fantastic divorce settlement. Kyle wants her to sleep in his bed, hold his hand at night, wear his ring on his finger at all times, and keep working for him. He also wants to convince his sceptical father that they are happily married and in love, and he's settled enough to run Waugh Industries. Dawn Brooks wants nothing more than stability and would marry a mysterious man to give her the stability she deserves. Even though she slowly learns that Kyle's heart has inbuilt cold walls, she'll do anything to keep the company job and never return to her parents. For now, she'll sleep in his bed, kiss him goodnight with a hole in her heart. Her heart may skip whenever Kyle is around, and his touch may ignite nerves that she never knew existed, but she won't actually give in to him. Would she? After all, she can be his wife if she can put her mind to it.View More
KYLECrossing my hands across my chest, I wait for Neil to bring the car in front of the official building establishment. I am wondering when he's going to get around to pulling the car in front of me. Running a hand across my temple, I massage the sides of my head to massage the nerves throbbing in the right part of my skull.Knowing that I have to deal with my dad tonight is getting on my nerves, and I don't know what to do with it. I have to inform Neil that he's coming with me tonight. I don't know if he'll agree to accompany me.As I'm lost in my thoughts, I see a car pulling in front of the company's parking area and then making its way towards me as I pull on my shirt's wrist. There's a nip in the air, and I somehow feel the cold settling within my skin. I have a lot on my mind, but I also know that I have to just get through tonight.What will my dad think about Dawn?How will he react to this marriage that he doesn't even know about?It's not that I didn't want to tell him, b
DAWN My phone buzzes in my pocket and my hand mindlessly reaches for it. I watch Julie talk to one of our planning team coworkers and she laughs loudly while she playfully nudges the guy on his chest with the back of her hand. She's awfully flirtatious with him today. Is he set out to be her next crush? Julie exchanges a look with me when she sees me staring at them with a confused face. Her eyes offer me a blank look as they tell me to get off her case, so I shake my head and focus on the phone in my hands and the screen gleams before dying down. It looks like I have received texts from someone. When I tap on the power button again, my glowing screen tells me that I have received some texts from Kyle. An instant smile breaks out on my face as I take a step away from our colleagues to read his text in the corner of their office room. Tapping on the messenger chat, my eyes grow wide and my lips part. The smile fades off my features and its place, I reckon fear takes its place. H
KYLE As I flip through the meeting notes Ms Burton left on my table some time ago, a message buzzes on my phone screen. When I pick up the phone to glance at it, I rub my index finger and thumb across the bridge of my nose. What does he want from me? Sighing, I pick up my phone and slide my thumb on the screen, stretching the sides of my neck. Oh, god. Was I supposed to meet him today? Tapping my finger reluctantly on the chat box to access his text, I make a face blow out a series of short breaths when his message pops up on the screen.
DAWNAfter our late afternoon lunch, Julie and I walk in tow to get back to our office room. Fiona has been coming in and going out of our office all this morning as she pleases, trying her best to intimidate us and breathing down our backs. She wants updates about every tiny thing with our new marketing materials, and Julie and I have been whispering about how insufferable she has been about this whole thing. After another discreet meeting with Mr Waugh, about whose details we got to know more from Sophia, yes, she's the person who was talking about my back, told us that Fiona was red-faced walking out of Kyle's office. Fiona's nostrils flared when Sophia tried to ask and more like inquire why Fiona needed a second and clearly a more private meeting with our CEO.Now, Sophia thinks Fiona is the person who is trying to lure Kyle into h
KYLEChewing on my lower lip, I read the email on my computer screen with a raised eyebrow. Fiona has sent mass emails to all the heads of departments, and I have been forwarded that email by Neil. Her email reads like this.Dear Respected Teammates and Colleagues,I think the CEO is trying to make an example of me since I stood up to him, and I need to do better to stay at this company. Can you support me in this process since you were a part of the negotiation he started for me to get a demotion in front of the respected members of this reputed company at the conference meeting earlier?I will cherish your support forever!
DAWN"Good, you're back," Julie declares her words to me as I step into the office room. "You were not kidding when you said you'll be gone for a bit.""I wasn't." I give her a small smile, getting into my desk chair as I suck in a deep breath and release it. "There were things I needed to take care of, so I took care of them." Shrugging my shoulders, I exchange glances with her. "That's it.""Sounds good, Dawn." Julie picks up a stack of files and passes them over to me. "I forgot to give them to you earlier. When Fiona came in to check on you, she brought them with her, and she wanted you to go through all of them by the end of the workday." Stretching her limbs above her head, she yawns. "I have to help you out in sorting the data out too. It's our team lead's orders."
DAWNAs I walk towards the stairway, my stomach flips upside down. A warm need makes itself known as last night's images flash in front of my eyes.I can't stop thinking about him moving between my legs, can I?Just asking myself that question makes my face flush and my eyes warm.I'm glad Kyle is not here.If Kyle was here, I know he would notice I'm blushing.I wonder if he could see right through me.It's not that hard to read me, either.Is it?My pussy walls flutter as my heart throbs against its walls.Why am I feeling like this?It's just Kyle.God, I need to stop feeling this way around him all the time when he's with me.But why do I need him so much?I have no answer to this question either.As I take quick steps towards the stairwell, I finally come face to face with the slightly cracked open door in front of it on my office floor. Opening it slowly further, I peer inside. No one seems to be in the
DAWNWhen I return to the office room, I sit down on my work chair with a plop, exhaling a harsh breath.I have just gotten to work, but it already seems like a long day has passed.Julie looks at me curiously when I turn my desktop computer on, wanting to get a headstart on work, open the attached files on our work messenger and log into my email on my screen. But when I don't say anything for a minute, she bows her head down and focuses on her work."What's going on now, Julie?" I ask her without looking up. "Is there something you want to tell me or ask me?""Not really." Julie shakes her head. "No, unless you want to tell me what happened with Fiona." She wets her lower lip. "Did you run into her or something?""Yeah." Jutting out my lower lip, I nod. "Well, she came into the women's washroom to confront me. Thanks for looking out for me even though you find me cold, rude, and indifferent to your hardships. I got there just in time because of you. A
DAWN"Dawn," the person says in a stern voice. "Are you in there?" The person talks much more loudly this time. "Are you okay in there? It's me, Fiona." Then she pauses. "You can come out right now. I need to talk to you."When I don't say anything, she proceeds to talk into the silence as I sense my tolerance for her behaviour evaporating into thin air when she addresses me again."Dawn. I know you're in there. It's all right. You can come out." She pauses. "You're sick, so I don't want to stretch this longer than it has to be here." When I don't respond in any way to her words, she starts talking again. "Oh, please, for the love of God, you can come out now. I won't bite you." Another pause. "Scratch that. I am worried about you since you are my teammate."My heart beats loudly against my chest.What does she want to talk to me about?Is she for real?Is she acting sympathetic towards me after all this time that has passed where she has done noth
