Giselle's POV :
We walked hand in hand to our work place.
All eyes were on us. Everyone was shocked. They were baffled that their boss, TITO ARMANIO held a woman's hand.
When we went to our floor, he held my face in his hands and said, "I don't want you to get disturbed because of me. I won't bother you till you're done with your work."
"What brought this sudden change in you? All this affection and your cold demeanor just vanished."
"I'll tell you everything over dinner tonight."
"Is that a way of asking me out Mr. Armanio?"
"I don't ask people out Ms. Marcello. They say 'yes' to me without me even asking."
With that being said, he went to his cabin. I went to mine and started doing some work.
When the clock struck 8, there was a knock on my door.
"I think it's about time we had
Giselle's POV :Three months later :Me and Tito have been dating for about 3 months now and I really like him. He's been such a gentleman and I can tell he cares about me.I care for him a lot that it honestly surprises me. I'm not in the love stage yet. But, I'm nearing to it.During our conference meetings, he tells the men to go out of the room if they start flirting with me.I knocked on his door and walked in without waiting for his reply.He had a grim expression on his face. He's been like this for the past week. I've been trying to get it out of him, but I failed to do so. I even asked him if he wanted to leave me, but that wasn't the case either. It pained me to say that, but I just want him to be happy."What's wrong honey? Is something bothering you?""Meet me on the rooftop a
Giselle's POV :I snatched the letter as soon as he signed it."Goodbye Mr.Armanio. I wish you good luck in your life."I didn't let him respond as I went out of the room.I went to the receptionist and collected all my files.I went to my cabin and cleaned out everything.Before I left the office, I went to his room and said, "I left all the files prepared for your next assistant.""Giselle.... I l-"I cut his sentence again, "You appreciate it, I know."He sighed and said, "I do. Will you tell me where you'll go?""That's for me to know and none of your business. Goodbye."As soon as I shut his door, I heard him scream in frustration. A smirk danced on my lips.I bid my farewell to all my colleagues. I didn't really have any work friends, becaus
Giselle's POV:I looked at him quizzically.He raised his as up in surrender and said, "Don't look at me like that. I'm taken."He showed me the ring on his finger.I blushed in embarrassment and said, "I'm so sorry. What's your wife's name?""Carina Rasti. I love her a lot."I chuckled and said, "I can tell.""Anyway, the job is yours.""Thank you so much!""Your work starts from tomorrow. Everyday 8 o'clock sharp. No tardies.""No problem Mr.Rasti."I took my file and left.Celia asked me, "Well...""I got the job."She seemed to be more happier than me. She hugged me over her cubicle and said, "We'll be the best of friends, I can tell."I went back to my apartment after grabbing some dinner and
Giselle's POV:One year later:I became cold and detached throughout the year. I became a master in judo and I'm still on the search for men to join my mafia.Actually, I already got all the men I needed and I was training them by myself. They were all so bloody loyal to me and of course, I was their mama bear. I just needed a right hand man.It took a hell lot of work to find these men. I collected them from around Europe. It was only possible since I quit my job.I was establishing my own company, Inkheart Corp.I was travelling around Europe to find myself business partners and I was lucky that I found my men too. I killed two birds with one stone. My company is doing good so far with a good number of employees. It's quite small, though.For now, it's in Italy, but I will expand my company.
Giselle's POV:Still kneeling down, he said, "They are the real lucky ones to have such a caring leader like you. You act just like their mother. If they're ashamed of having you as their leader, then they're not real men. I've never seen a mafia leader like you.""Okay. Okay. Enough with the cheese, get back in the car. I'm about to puke."After that, Kaun dropped us back to my house.After we entered, I locked the door and showered. After I showered, Venettio showered as well. We both sat on the couch and I said, "Okay, now spill.""Spill what?""You know what I'm talking about."He laughed and said, "Looks like I underestimated you. Kaun blew it, didn't he?"I crossed my arms and waited for him to speak. He huffed and slumped in the sofa."There's a lot to say and there's a lot that you wouldn'
Giselle's POV :Being a mafia leader is not easy at all. Especially since I'm a woman.... the society doesn't accept easily.The new recruits are a bother to me. People challenge me at least once a week.Kicking them out is an easy task, but getting new recruits was so dang difficult.Of course, since I quit my job, I had a lot of free time. I was fending myself from the previous money that I earned.I have men working for me because of my motive, but that doesn't mean they don't challenge me.I'm viewed as a weak leader. I know it's stupid to build a mafia just because of judo and of course, I'm not stupid.I had lots of time after I quit my job. I was living off my previously earned money.After about half a year later, I started my company. I managed my time between my company and martial arts training.
Giselle's POV :The next day Venettio started his work and I started mine.I called him and said, "Celia will show you the strings of the company.""Giselle, I know the strings of the company.""How?""Do you know Inspiration Inc.?""Yes. It's gone bankrupt. It was an amazing company. Why?""That's my company.""You're joking.""I'm not joking. It's my company I established with my own hands. I'm trying to save it from its bankrupt condition."I was truly shocked. "How did it go bankrupt?"He heaved a sigh, "My father did it.""How?""It's ironical how he made the police believe that my company was illegal. I need to put his mafia down to bring my company back up. The men in his mafia are demons. They are inhumane."
Giselle's POV:I woke up in a hospital room and found some gauze on my shoulder.Venettio entered the room and walked towards me."Why did I pass out?""The knife was poisoned.""Oh.""What the hell were you thinking?! You treat your men like women! Why are you protecting men?! They're perfectly capable of protecting themselves. Never forget that you're a woman Giselle. There's a limit for everything.""That's an amazing way to greet someone who woke up after getting stabbed with a knife."He sighed and dragged his hand down his face."Why do you even care so much and don't you have a date with Celia tonight?""I care about you because you're my boss. You took me in when no one did.""He acknowledges that I'm his boss!"He looked at me and I said,
