( Too cold and possessive)
( I want her back)
By Simrah Saeed Hareerah
” You two know each other?” Andrew asked glancing at me and Eric.
I can’t believe he will turn out to be Andrew’s brother gosh!
This world is indeed a small place.
I nodded my head smiling at him.
” I guess there’s no need for any introduction then ” he said taking a seat opposite his brother.
” Wow! Andrew you never told me you have a beautiful lady as a best friend ” Eric said and I bowed my head with my cheeks flushed.
” I am very sorry for the other day Mr..I mean Eric, I was in haste to submit a file to Mr Kingsley ” I apologized and I heard him chuckled.
” It nothing Alexa, please sit ” he said gesturing to the chair beside Andrew which I did.
” You are welcome to Reese corporation, I will love you to stay on this floor with me for easy access so you take the office after mine ” he said
” Thank you ”
” Such a humble lady, I wonder how that asshole will let go of a lady like you ” he whispered but I heard it.
Andrew and I exchanged looks then I looked down!
I just wish I could forget about that Mr Kingsley forever but I don’t think that’s happening soon.
His name seems to be everywhere around me.
” You can go to your office, I will inform my secretary to put you through ” he announced.
I glanced at Andrew smilling genuinely at him.
” Thank you Andrew ” I said standing up while he grinned.
” Anything for you buttercup, see you around” he replied and I nodded.
It was easy to locate the office because according to him, it’s right behind his so yeah!
I got it!
I believe things will be better here, Eric isn’t like Mr Kingsley.
There are way too different and apart!;
I wish he was just like Eric, he isn’t even seeing me as an employer!
Finally! My peace of mind will be back!
Really? When I researched about her yesterday, it never occurred to me that my brother was the Andrew in the picture.
The very one Jeff refer to as Alexa’s husband.
I chuckled over his stupidity, I am sure going to make him suffer before he gets her back.
That girl, there’s something about her that I like and I can’t really place a finger on.
” And big bro, do not mention that Jeffery’s name in her presence. It almost turned her mood sour ”
Andrew said and I narrowed my eyes at him.
” Seriously Andrew, how come I never knew she is your friend?” I asked
He rolled his eyes taking the cheeps on my desk.
” How would you know when you spent literally all your life in America? You attended your highschool there, including your college as if that wasn’t enough, you were enrolled in the university there too so how did you expect to know her and besides she’s my best friend not my friend ”
He blabbered and I chuckled! That’s true though!
I barely come home even on holidays!
” Seems my kid brother is still angry with me over that, I already promised to make up for our childhood bro ” I said to him .
H snorted standing up!
” Well, I don’t want you to make up for it anymore. I am glad you are home now, all I want is Alexa’s peace of mind and safety and I leave that in your hands”
He said !
” Wait! Are you sure you don’t have feelings for her? Why did you care so much about her?” I asked bemused.
This is really amazing! I see reasons why Jeff thought they were an item.
Like look at their close relationship!
I will just get informations from him, it will be easier!
” Ah na! I love Alexa so much as a friend, her happiness is my priority bro. She’s gone through a lot and she doesn’t deserve anymore stress but you see that fuçking bastard that burnt her yesterday, I will kill him ”
He said glaring hard at the table!
” Who burnt her?” I found myself asking! This is more interesting than I thought!
” That Kingsley guy, I just hope I don’t see him anywhere close ” he gritted his teeth and I choked.
Jeff? He didn’t tell me about that! Why will he burn her? For what reason?
” That’s my best friend you are talking about Andrew ” I glared at him even when I know Jeff was wrong.
” And he dare touch my best friend too, how could he have purposely poured a hot coffee on her? What was her offense? Bringing it for him? ”
His eyes widened as if he just thought about something.
” wait, your best friend? How the hell on Earth did you get to know a dumbass like him? ” He snapped.
Oh is he forgetting I am the elder brother here?
” Chill bro, we’ve been friends since highschool ”
He flared his nose nodding his head!
” I know right! Just tell him to stay 100 meters away from Alexa and 1000 meters away from my sight else, I will beat him to stupor ”
He said standing up and left angrily ignoring my calls too.
My brother has that type of temper that when he says he will do something, he never goes back on his words.
Age doesn’t matter, Andrew can be very dangerous when he’s angry!
I as his elder brother is very afraid to get him angry and Jeff?
He should be prepared for it, I can’t wait to watch the show!
Maybe the beating will reset his brain!
I guess it’s time to start messing with him!
I brought out my phone and dialed his number! Time for fun!!
I sighed frustratedly running my hands through my hair .
I have been sitting here for almost two hours without being able to do a thing.
The thought of Alexa clouded my head.
I miss nagging at her, I miss seeing her determined face. Fúck! I miss her!
I wish I can go back to the past and become a little nicer to her.
I fling the documents Stella brought earlier for review! That’s the least of my problems now.
Going to her house is out of it, what if she pours hot water on me to get back at me?
The more I remember her, the more guilty I feel!
I ignored her red hand and chest the day I poured a coffee on her yet she didn’t complain.
But I went extreme by insulting her family and personality!
Bringing up two children by yourself isn’t an easy task!
And their father? Eric didn’t get a clue about it yesterday!
I just wish I can know her past!
I rubbed my knuckles together glancing at my phone that was beeping.
???? Hey bro ????
His sharp voice came in loudly!
???? You don’t want to break my eardrum do you? What’s the excitement about?????
???? Well! Seems the lady you carelessly lost, she’s now working for me as my manager and guess what, she’s the most efficient lady I have ever seen????
My heart sank at that? She got another job? She wasn’t thinking of coming back?
???? Jeff! She just came in today and have won the award of my best worker for the month, you lost a treasure, a hard-working, selfless and dedicated lady ????
I know I messed up but did she have to start looking for another job the day she quitted?
Was she that tired of me?
???? Guess what? I think I like her????
I could hear him grin on the other side!
???? You must be joking Eric, you can’t like her. She’s mi…????
I stopped myself before I could blurt out what was forming in my head.
???? She’s what? Huh? Why did you pause ? ????
I sighed not knowing what to say!
???? Eric, listen to me! I want her back ????
???? You must be crazy Jeffery ????
He scoffed and ended the call! Fúck!
