( Too cold and possessive)
( Unlike Mr Kingsley)
By Simrah Saeed Hareerah
I took a cold shower, dressed up in my casual outfit and walked out of my room to meet Andrew.
What could I have done without that soul ?
Without him,I am just a mere lady! A lady that is broken forever!
” Feeling better?” He asked as I entered into the kitchen where he was preparing lunch for us.
” Yeah, a lot better ” I replied ….
I don’t want to remember everything that has happened in the past few days and that of this morning!
I just want to feel myself again and not stuck in Mr Kingsley’s thought of how he’d treated me.
” I am glad, now seat here likes princess while I make a quick tea for you ” he said picking me up in a bridal style.
A stranger will think we are in a kinda lovey dovey relationship.
” I can walk Andrew ” I said laughing.
” I know that buttercup, I just want to pick you up so sit here and watch me do everything. A Queen shouldn’t be stressed, only some fools that doesn’t know your worth does that ”
He tone changed into that of a anger gritting his teeth while placing me on the kitchen counter.
” I don’t want to think about anything that will change my mood right now, all I want to think of is my buttercup and her happiness ”
He replied going back to the gas. My best friend is more than thousand boyfriends!
I can never choose anyone over him, he will always remain my first love, my brother and my bet friend.
He fetched a quantity of hot water and added the tea ingredients then handed it to me.
” Thank you best ” I said sincerely. I haven’t thanked him since morning.
Even when he has a photo shoot that moment I called him, he told them to cancel it and he came right to my aid at the company.
And now instead of him to go back as he already dropped me, he’s making lunch for me and took a day off .
” Anything for you” he winked making me chuckle.
” While you were taking your bath, I called my brother and you are to resume work tomorrow. No interview, or should I say I am the interviewer and I already interviewed you? I know my best friend is good for the job ”
He said and my face beamed! I don’t know I will ever get a job again!
At least, not this fast and bigger! I will be a manager!
Promoted without doing anything!
” Are you serious Andrew?” I asked.
” Of course buttercup, you start work tomorrow and your pay is lit. I already told my brother to double it for you. You are not just a worker but my best friend”
I flew from the table he placed me earlier hugging him like my life depended on it.
” I can’t thank you enough Andrew, I am very grateful for having you in my life ” I said.
If all guys are like him, the world could have been a better place.
” Don’t mention buttercup, I am not your big brother for nothing. Now if you would stop being clingy right now. I need to get done with the lunch then go right to school to pick up the kids”
He said and I nodded!
He was the only one that did not laugh at my stupidity of getting pregnant for an unknown man.
He understood and loved me the more. He took care of the kids like they were his.
I owe him forever so long as I live!
” I feel so nervous Andrew, what if they don’t like me?” I asked fidgeting with my fingers as we came down from his car.
This place looks very beautiful like that of Mr Kingsley’s too.
” You don’t have to buttercup, no one will dislike you. C’mon let’s go” he held my hand protectively.
I could see some ladies raising up their dresses to make it short and be noticed by Andrew, some flirting with their eyes while some were glaring at me.
I chuckled in my mind ! If only they know Andrew isn’t giving them any single attention.
If only they know he’s a gay, they won’t be jealous of me being next to him.
All I was hearing was good morning Sir, good morning Sir till we reached the elevator.
He answered few and smiled at few.
We stopped at the 7th floor and he pushed open on the left which was an office. His brother’s office I guess.
” Hey bro ” Andrew said as I trailed behind him with my head bowed.
That’s my new boss, I should give him some respect!
” I have told you countless times to knock before entering into my office Andrew, why can’t you follow a simple instruction?”
His brother asked and my stupid best friend shrugged!
I gulped as his eyes landed on me!
My head snapped to him with a frown as I heard him call my name !
I have been friends with Andrew for years now and I only know his parents and sister so how did he know my name?
I stared at him as he stared back at me with shock!
Did he know me from somewhere?
” Good… morning Sir ” I greeted to ease the tension.
I can’t remember this face at all, Andi can’t remember meeting him anywhere!
This should be the first time I am seeing him and he called me by my first name unlike Mr Kingsley.
He was so harsh even on my first day!
If all the bosses are like him, I’d rather die of poverty!
Turning into a begged will be better than working under him.
And him, he must be very happy that I left!
I just hope he’s not planning on ruining my life like he always threatened.
Loosing this job again is what I don’t want.
” Are you saying you don’t know me Alexa? Remember the guy you bumped into the other day at J group of company ” he explained,…
Ah! How could I have forgotten? Mr Kingsley asked me to bring a file in 5seconds and I bumped into him in haste.
” Mr Eric?” I called with my eyes widened in shock!
” Oh Alexa, cut the formalities, call me Eric ”
