♥️♥️Oh My Candy💋💋
The ride to whatever direction we’re going took forever. I sat at the back seat of the expensive vehicle I secretly wished I could buy one and listened to songs through my earphones.
Diego always checked if I’m okay by looking at the rearview mirror.
” Ma’am, are you okay?” Diego asked.
” It’s Candy, Diego not ma’am.” I corrected.
I saw him smile at me through the rearview mirror.
” Are you okay?”
” Am I supposed to be okay?”
” Maybe. You look down.”
” That’s because I’m down. Your boss, Sean is making life a living hell for me. What’s wrong with rich people and manipulation, something has to be wrong.” I said.
” Well, for one thing, he’s not manipulative. You’re some what stubborn.”
” And whose side are you in? Obviously it’s your boss’s side. Birds of a feather.” I said, he laughed.
” I’m not on anyone’s side. He doesn’t usually get women to follow him to such events. It’s not like he has a choice.”
” Nah, I don’t think that’s true. He’s rich and wealthy. He’s supposed to have almost everything he wants. He could easily get a female escort if he chooses to.”
” But then he choosed you. Thought about that?” There’s silence in the car as I thought about it.
” You have nothing to be worried about. Mr. Smith is a nice man. You will like him if you get to know him.”
” I don’t need to know him. It’s not my job to know my payers. My job is to entertain them while they watch. Not coming over to their houses to eat expensive food and live in marvelous bedroom. His he always this weird. ” I asked. Diego smirked at me through the rearview mirror.
” No. Like I said you just have to know him better. He’s a great man.”
” Yeah, whatever.” I scoffed.
We stopped by in a boutique and I got out of the car before Diego could open it for me. I might sometimes shop for expensive clothes but I’ve never been opportune to buy wares from Beverly collection. She’s one of the top designers I’ve ever seen and mostly celebrities that usually wear her clothes.
” Wow. Beverly’s collection? Are kidding me.” I marvelled at the clothes as I glance around.
” This is cool.” I smiled at every fortune on this mannequins and closet.
” Go on, buy whatever you want.” Diego said to me.
Am I allowed to be greedy for 30 minutes? I feel like buying all these dresses. I smiled at Diego and nodded. I looked at the clothes on the closet and I got lost on what to choose really. They’re are all to pretty and irristible. I want all of it which doesn’t make any sense but I do.
After bagging my clothes, the sales girl handed the credit back to Diego and a receipt. I took my bag and glance shortly at the receipt. 40 thousand dollars? For what exactly? A dress and shoes.
Diego and I returned to the car and we drove home.
“What did she say about the clothes?” I asked Diego on the phone as I go through every appointment on my desk.
” Well… Not much sir.” He answered. I waved the secretary off as she left.
” What do you mean not much?”
” She lamented. Complained they are too expensive and you had no right to buy her clothes. She said she’s nothing to you and you should stop treating her like she’s something to you.”
I sighed. Of course she’s something to me. She meant a lot to me. Growing up as a man, I discovered I needed to find her. I needed to make her mine. I wanted to wake up every morning next to her. I wanted to watch her go to sleep every night. But what if she doesn’t want any of that? With me?
” Sir, are you there?”
” Yes, Diego. I’ll be home soon. Make sure she doesn’t do anything crazy.”
” Alright, sir.” I hung up the phone and immediately call Mark.
” Hey, Sean.”
” Sup Mark. How are you doing?” I asked him.
” You sound like a girl.” Mark mocked on the phone. He’s always crazy at times.
” You’re insane.” I chuckled.
” I know right? What’s up with you? Having Candy problems again?”
” I guess, Mark. I don’t know how to explain to her the reason I brought her here is to tell her about the kid she saved seventeen years ago and that kid turned out to be me. I just keep thinking what’s her reaction gonna be like.”
” Of course she’s gonna get mad, sick. Because you lied to her. You paid her to come dance for you and then it turned out all of this wasn’t really about a dance but to tell her you are the boy she met years ago. Come on Sean, it’s gonna sound crazy to her.”
” Sometimes I always wonder, what if she doesn’t want me same I want her.”
” Who wouldn’t want you? You’re rich and goodlooking. Girls always look for things like that in a man.”
” Can you be serious for once Mark?”
” You know I’m being serious here.”
” I don’t wanna tell her now.”
” Why not? The sooner you tell her the better for everyone. Someday you’re gonna tell her, why not tell her now.”
” The charity event tonight, I’m bringing her as my date. I said I was gonna tell her if she agree to come with me and now I’m freaking out.”
” Fuck this man. Just get it done and get over it. It’s no big deal. Obviously she’s gonna freak out but everything will be alright.”
I sighed and rub my palm down my face. Why does this sound difficult? It’s gonna hurt if it turns out she wants nothing to do with me.
” Thanks Mark.”
” Sure thing Man. You be careful.”
” Yeah. Bye.” I hung up as I looked at the time . It’s almost closing hour and I need to leave early to get ready for this event.
I took in a deep breath as I put on my dress. I never for once thought I was gonna wear a dress and accompany a man to an event. Not just any man, a man I’m supposed to strip for. This is insane.
I stared at my reflection and the slight cleavage that’s exposed. I brush my hair and curl as I comb it to turn into waves. I apply make-up as I wear my shoes.
“Wow.” I muttered at the sight of my reflection. I always look good, it’s a habit.
Someone knocked on the door as I dart my head to the door. I opened it and Sean stood in front of me. Well dressed in his tuxedo. His hair is well styled and he looked so damn good. I shouldn’t talk about how good he smelled.
Good God, quit it Candy.
I noticed he’s also admiring me cause I caught him. His eyes raked down my body lustfully and I feel butterflies in my stomach. I cleared my throat and his shameful eyes retuned back to my face.
” Sorry. You look good.” He stuttered. I blushed which I’m not supposed to.
” Thank you. Shall we?”
” Yeah.” He responded and took my hand as we walk down the stairs.
” Tomorrow we’re gonna talk about why you want me as your escort and why you bought me this expensive clothes and also why have you been avoiding my dance.” I said once we’re in the car.
” Let’s enjoy the night, Candice.” He said. I tried my best to ignore the fact that my full name sounds erotic in his mouth.
God please purify my thoughts. The drive was intense, not just for me but for the both of us. Sean looked like he was fighting something within him. And a part of me knew that something he’s fighting has to do with me. The car finally stopped in front of a huge Italian style building and we stepped out of the car.
Without my notice, Sean wrapped his arms around my waist. I jerked at once but that didn’t stop him from removing his hand from around my waist.
” You don’t mind giving them an act, do you?” He whispered to my ears.
I swallowed as I took in deep breath. How dare he make me have butterflies in my stomach. This is so strange. I was so stupid to think I really had really feelings toward Tony.
I shut the thought of Tony at the back of my head and allow the night to flow perfectly. Sean and I walked inside, his arms around my waist. All of this feels so strange and it’s even more strange that I liked it.
” You’re okay?” Sean whispered, again. His he doing this on purpose? God save me.
” Yeah.” I smiled. The inside is occupied with different rich people from different backgrounds. A waiter passed with a platter and gave us two glasses of Champagne. I sipped mind at once.
I glanced around the party as my eyes fell on someone I haven’t seen for a very long time. My heart skipped a beat. Not that I missed him or cared about him, but because he was a monster.
Sean followed my line of vision and I noticed his mood changed.
What is that bastard doing here? I noticed Candice doesn’t look happy. Her mood changed all of a sudden. Of course I get, that bastard is her baby’s biological father. That prick hurt her and treated her like she was nothing.
I wrapped my arms around her waist. ” Are you okay?”
” Yes. Thanks I’m fine.” I turned to look at Tony and he’s staring right back at me with that shit eating grin of his.
I so much hate that fucker. For some reasons he always wanna see me hurt. I get it, we’re rivals.
” What’s he doing here?” Candy asked.
” Who?” I asked. I don’t want her to know I knew Tony had something with her.
” Tony Adonis.”
” I don’t know. I’m as surprised as you’re.” I answered. ” You know him?” I asked.
She looked at me. For once I saw the real Candy she’s trying so hard to mask.
” He’s from my past and that’s none of your business though.” Great she’s back to the other Candice.
” You don’t have to been mean.”
” What do you mean by being mean? You wanted me to be your escort to some event tonight and then someone from my past just magically showed up. Someone I never wanna see.”
” First, you’re not my escort and second I didn’t know Tony would be here. You don’t have to make a fuse out of it. Look I don’t know what you two had together but like you called it, it’s in the past now. It should stay that way, you don’t have to let him burn your night.” I said. For once that calms her mood swings down.
She’s crazy. Who knew she would grow into a hothead woman. Or maybe she’s not really hotheaded. I guess her job or her past made her this way .
” When am I giving you your dance and when are you supposed to tell me the exact reason you hired me.” She said.
God damnit. I can’t believe I forgot that already.
” Let’s go home first , alright?” I asked.
She rolled her eyes and gulp her wine.
Can today get any worse? What the hell is Tony Adonis doing here? If I was told he was gonna be here I would never show up. I look at this wealthy men in Italian suits and tuxedos sipping expensive wines. Is this really a charity event or probably a Mafia party.
My eyes fell on Tony and he smirked at me. Ew. I hated him with every blood in me. Bloody irritating bastard with no heart. My hands clenched tightly around my glass as I looked away. I took a deep breath and turned to look at Sean. He’s having a conversation with a lady. She’s tall , blonde and really beautiful.
” Who’s she ?” The woman asked as she smiled at me. I didn’t notice they’ve been talking about me.
” Oh this is Candice. Candice meet Mariam. She’s in charge of the charity organization.”
” Hi.” We exchanged handshakes.
” Nice to meet you.” Mariam said.
” The pleasure is mine.” I forced a smile at her.
” She’s pretty.” Mariam giggled. I smiled.
” Thank you.”
” Come on Sean, let me show you to the other sponsors.” Mariam said as she started walking.
Sean wrapped his arms around my waist and we followed her. I need to get used to his hand around my waist and sometimes on my hips today. It’s uncomfortable and I don’t like the way I’m feeling.
My stomach churned each time his hands absently caressed my hips, like he’s doing now. I barely could concentrate on the conversation between Sean, Mariam and these sponsors. I was fighting so hard to get rid of this weird feelings at the bottom of my belly. This isn’t good.
A waiter passed and I grabbed a wine from his platter. Without caring these ‘Sponsors’ was looking at me, I drowned the wine. I blinked my eyes at them and forced a smile. Sean faked a cough.
” Sorry about that. A little thirsty.” I apologised. It’s not like I really care, I just don’t wanna burn the night.
“What’s wrong with you? You’ve been drinking since we arrived. Do you know what that’s to my image?” Sean asked. Earlier, he dragged me to the restroom to scold me like I was his girlfriend.
” First, I’m not your girlfriend, you have no right to scold me.”
” I’m not scolding you. I’m telling you all of these shouldn’t be happening. Drinking too much and getting drunk. Is it because of Tony?”
My heart clenched at the mention of Tony. That fucking bastard.
” This isn’t about Tony alright.”
” Then what’s this all about? Why are you getting drunk and acting like a child.”
” Don’t talk to me like that.” I yelled at him. ” I am not drunk alright. I’m just stressed because I’m not used to parties like this.”
He sighed. ” I get it. You’re gonna be okay.” He assured me.
I’m drunk and I know it. And the reason behind my drunken state it’s because of Tony. I hate that he’s around me. He reminds me of the time I wasted with him.
With Sean’s arms around me, he walked me out of the restroom. I looked like shit and it’s crazy. The first person I set my eyes on was Tony with his shit eating grin. Oh God please kill him already.
” Will you be staying longer, I’m having a headache.” I asked Sean. He shook his head sideways.
” We’ll be leaving anytime soon.” He whispered and walked over to Mariam.
A waiter passed with a platter and I collected a glass of wine from his platter. I’m tipsy and another wine, I’ll be ruining this dress with puke. But I didn’t care about anything right now, the sight of Tony makes me wanna jump off the bridge.
He came with a girl. A brunette with extra tight red dress. Finally, I took my eyes off of Tony as I turned to look at the man I came with. He’s the other reason I decided to get drunk. How can he look so good. I’ve been trying not to look at him , but I just can’t. This isn’t right. I’m supposed to come strip for him and leave but this isn’t happening as I expected.
” Hey baby.” A familiar voiced whispered next to me. I turned to look at this monster.
” What are you doing here?”
” I should be asking you that. Really? I left you and you decided to date my rival, Sean. Someone I’m better than, don’t you even have class.”
How dare he?
” Don’t talk to me like that.”
” Or what?” He smirked.
My lips quivered. ” How dare you? You’re a monster. You don’t even deserve to live. Why don’t you just stay the fuck away from me. Haven’t you ruined my life enough!” I yelled even when I don’t even know I’m yelling. I’m drunk out of my mind.
” You’re a hoe. What makes you think I would wanna have anything to do with you?”
With anger and irritation, I threw the glass of wine at his face. Everyone gasped. And that was when it came to my notice they’ve been watching us.
Tony proceed to aggressively grab my arm but someone stepped in the way. Sean!
” Stay the hell away from her you swine.” Sean yelled.
” And why are you defending this slut? I always know you settle for lesser things but I didn’t expect you to settle for things like her.”
” Call her more names ago and I’ll make sure you regret the day you were born.” Sean threatened. I’d never seen him get angry before.
Infact, I never for once thought he would defend me. But why?
” Are you threatening me Sean?”
” Sean, please don’t.” Mariam said.
” Call her more names again, I dare you.”
” Slu…” Before Tony could complete his sentence, all hell broke loose.
Sean punched Tony on his nose as people tried to seperate them.
” Sean please stop.” I pleaded. As much as I wanted someone to teach Tony a lesson, I didn’t want Sean to go jail for assault.
Tony is already bleeding and he looks like he’s out of breath already. With the little strength in me, I rushed to Sean and grabbed his arm, he snatches his hand away and pushed me away. I fall on the floor as my head slam against the floor.
” Oh my God.” Sean muttered.
The vision is blurry but I saw someone quickly lifted me off the ground before I blacked out.
