James lifted her of off her feet and soon was

holding her bridal style, never breaking the

kiss. He smiled as he heard a small yelp and

“Wait!” Elizabeth said breaking the kiss.

“What?” James said slightly annoyed.

“We should put out the candles.”

“Alright.” James said walking back over to the

table, still carrying her.

“You know you can just put me down right?”

“I know.” James smirked.

Elizabeth then blow out the candles and James

was about to turn away again.

“Wait!” Elizabeth yelled once more.

“What is it this time?”

“Shouldn’t we clean this up?”

Woman you’re killing me…”

Elizabeth then chuckled kissing him again.

“Ah you like that huh?” James said smiling as

she broke the kiss.

With that James put her down again. Confused

Elizabeth watched him. He smirked right

before saying. “You know what? You’re right we

should.” And with that he cleared the entire

table with one swipe of his arm.

Everything, from the remaining dishes to the

candles, crashed down to the floor.

“James!” Elizabeth gasped as she watched it


“What?” He said before lifting he up again and

placing her on the table. “I fixed it.” He said

before continuing what he had wanted to do so

badly earlier.

The following morning the both of them got

into work late, and both of them with a smile

upon their faces.

Natalie was sitting behind her desk, waiting for

James to come in when suddenly the door

opened. James walked in wearing his usual

type of suit, but with his hair a little more wild

then usual and with a slight stubble on his


“My my, looks like someone had a wild

night.” Natalie chuckled as James walked over

to her.

James laughed at that shaking his head, “What

can I say, the lady couldn’t resist me.”

“So I take it it went well?”

“It went great! And you my friend are getting a

raise!” James said slamming his hand on the


Natalie laughed and thanked the slightly over

enthusiastic James. She continued to question

him about every little detail, until he had to get

back to work.

Elizabeth walked into the building later then

usual and with a big smile on her face.

“Well someone looks happy.” Paul said as he

watched her walk out of the elevator.

“Someone is happy.” Elizabeth replied stopping

at his desk.

“What’s the occasion?”

“Well-” Elizabeth started, but was cut off by a

yelp that came from Paul.

“O My God! He proposed!” He all but


“How did you?” She started again but was cut

short once more.

“Well first of all after all that with the house,

I’ve been waiting for this moment. Furthermore

you’re in late, your hair is a mess and well

lastly you’re wearing a ring with quite a large

rock miss thing.”

At that Elizabeth laughed. “Alright, alright I get

it.” She looked down at her ring. “You know I

must say, I do think it is a bit on the large


“Nonsense, when it comes to diamonds there

is no thing as too large. Now give me that

hand.” Paul said taking her hand and looking

at the diamond.

“Paul it’s about the same width as my finger.”

“O come on it isn’t that big.”

“But it is pretty close. I mean I wouldn’t have

minded having a lot smaller one. Or no

diamond at all.”

“That you can do for your wedding ring.” Paul

said. “O my god! When is the wedding? Have

you thought about dresses yet? Have you

picked a maid of honor yet?”

“Wow, hold it right there partner. He just asked

me last night, you think the first thing we did

together was planning?”

“Well either that or practicing for a family.”

Paul winked.

James his mind wasn’t really on his work the

entire day. At around eleven O’clock in the

morning he had his first meeting of the day,

and if it wasn’t for his new assistant he would

have completely forgotten about it.

“Sir?” She tentatively asked sticking her head

around the door.

“Yes?” James said looking up from his


“Mr. Robinson will be here any moment now.”

“Ah thank you.” James replied getting up from

his chair. “Open up conference room 2.”

James quickly checked his tie in the mirror

before leaving the room and going to the

conference room.

At the ending of the meeting the James and

Mr. Robinson sat and just talked for a

moment. “So Mr. McGregor, tell me, how’s


“Very good, just got engaged actually,” James

replied chuckling.

“Did you? Congratulations! I must say that I am

surprised, after that job offer and all.”

“I’m sorry, what do you mean?” James replied,

furrowing his brows.

“Well I heard from Urrick about the offer he

made Ms. Waverton. It sure as hell as a good

one, wanted her to run the West Coast office.

But I take it that she declined.”

James was bafled by this statement. Was this

true? and if so why hadn’t she told him? Did

she want to take that job?

“Didn’t she tell you








When Elizabeth’s phone buzzed in the drawer

of her desk she didn’t notice it doing so. Nor

did she know the impact of the message. So it

is safe to say that at that point she was

completely unaware of what was about


At that very moment, she was in a meeting. In

fact, she wouldn’t read that text until that

afternoon. Some say ignorance is bliss…

James, on the other hand, was quite on edge.

Ever since that meeting had ended he had

wanted answers. Sure he might be

overreacting, but why hadn’t she told him

anything about that?

He sat behind his desk, staring out of the

window behind him when there was a knock

on the door. “Come in,” he said not turning


“Sir, it’s 6, would it be alright if I leave?” His

assistant asked tentatively.

“Yeah.” He said slightly dazed. “I mean yes!”

He said looking up at her. “Yes you may.”

The girl nodded and was about to leave.

“Wait!” He said suddenly remembering


The young woman stiffened as he said that,

she had been working for him for a month now

and she had been on edge quite a large

amount of that time. Sure being a P.A. is

demanding, but being a P.A. for this man was

downright terrifying. He had fired quite a few

P.A.’s after his old one left. Adding to that,

knowing that he once had the ‘perfect’

assistant, doesn’t really brighten spirits.

So when he told her to wait she feared the


“Before you leave, did you write down my

appointment with Mr. Johnson?” He said.

The young lady released a breath she didn’t

even know that she was holding. “Yes I did sir.

Friday the 8th at 15:00 sharp.”

“Thank you, Marion, see you tomorrow!”

“See you tomorrow sir.” She nodded quietly

before leaving the room.

At around six pm Elizabeth got back to her

phone, quickly grabbing it before leaving the

building. With bag in one hand and phone in

the other, she walked into the parking garage

and over her car. She quickly opened her car

door and stepped inside the vehicle.

She was about to put her phone away when

she noticed the text by James.

We need to talk….

That doesn’t sound to good… She thought to

herself as she read it. What would there be

wrong? She wondered as she debated calling

him for a moment. Deciding that she would

see him at home she drove out of the garage

and to her appartment.

Once she reached the lobby she smiled at

Wallace who greeted her kindly, before saying,

“The skies are dark today ma’m, they’re dark

as can be. ”

“Wallace what are you talking about the sun is

shining bright.”

“I know ma’m I know.” he said pointing up.

It then clicked in her head that he was most

likely talking about James.

“Ah I see, thank you Wallace.”

“Allways ma’m.”

Elizabeth breathed in a big gulp of air as she

put the key into the door. Softly she turned the

key, not wanting to be heard.

The door opened slowly and Elizabeth stepped

in. She put her bag away and walked further

into the appartment. All the way over to James

who was sitting on the couch legs spread.

“We need to talk.” He repeated to her as she

walked over to him.

Sitting accros from him he said, “About what?”

“Why didn’t you tell me?”

He asked her leaning forward.

“Didn’t tell you what?” She said crossing her


“Don’t pretend, Elizabeth you know damn well

what I am talking about.” He said getting up

from the couch.

“Pretend? Pretend? How old are you? Tell me

what bothers you.”

“The job offer why didn’t you tell me?” James


“Ah now I see.” Elizabeth said getting up. “You

heard about that and thought that I had took


“That I don’t know, but why didn’t you tell me

is what bothered me.”

“I didn’t tell you because I needed time to

think. I needed time to think what I want.”

“What do you want?”

“I want to be happy.” She said leaning against

the edge of her kitchen table.

“I want you to be that too.” James said looking

at her. “I’ll won’t stop you if you want to move

there. I’ll buy us a nice house there.” He

started but was cut of by Elizabeth.

“See that’s not what I want. I don’t think that

will make me happy.” She said walking over to

him. “You see, I don’t care much about money.

You know. Because money can’t buy me love.”

She smiled. “And I think… That I’m happy and

that I’ll remain happy right here where I am.

That’s why I called Mr. Urrick this morning to

decline his offer.”

At that moment she was standing face to face

with him. Slowly she wraped her arms around

his neck. “I told him that I’m happy to stay

right where I am.”

“God I love you…” James said right before

kissing her pasionatelly.
