{When love decides
To take over}
☔Episode 21☔
Penny’s POV:
My first day at work wasn’t that bad, though it was hectic but I love it.
It is my job, what i love doing.
I glanced at my wristwatch and heaved a sigh of relief.
It is time to close up my work just remaining one file to sought out.
Typing furiously on my computer and working on my calculator as well, I was very preoccupied.
A knock came on the door and it was pushed open even before I said a word.
“You are not closed yet?” His voice boomed inside the room.
“Just this last file and I’ll be done with it, are you going?” I asked him and he nods.
“But not leaving you here all alone, you’re new to this environment.” He said and I stopped what I was doing then look up.
“You can go Mr King, don’t let me hold you. I can find my way around.” I said to him but he wasn’t having it, instead he walked into the office and sat down on the chair.
“Be fast if you want to save my time.” He said and closed his eyes.
Oh God.
He told me to work, but how can I work with him watching me? With his powerful aura radiating throughout the room?
I can’t even think straight.
That is what he does to me. He makes me so nervous.
So not knowing what to do.
I sigh and watch his closed eyes. Since he couldn’t see me I took my time to appreciate his features.
He is really beautiful man. A man whom everyone can turn around just to get a glimpse of.
He made me so nervous, so h0t, so, so h0rny.
Something that I haven’t feel for years.
The feeling is coming back.
My horny hormones, but this is so wrong.
I’m not a teenager anymore and I ought to control my needs.
“You can stop staring at me and continue with your work, or you can watch me as long as you can while we p@ss the night here. I’m sure you dont want the last option.” He said and I g@sped.
He knew.
He knew that i was watching him.
I blushed and tried to act like he’s not there and work.
After saving the last of my work, I turn off my computer and grabbed my suit jacket.
It was just then that I noticed.
I was wearing just my white camisole all along.
Why didn’t he tell me to dress professionally?
I blushed and quickly wore my jacket and stood up from the chair then grabbed my bag.
I gulped down the last drop of the coffee that a work fellow got for me earlier.
“Ready.” I said and he stood up.
He led the way while I followed suit after turning off the light and closed the door.
“Did you enjoy your first day?” He asked me as well enter the elevator.
“Yes, I really enjoyed it.” I said sincerely.
It was silent, there was tension inside the elevator. I glanced at him through the side of my eyes and held my breath.
I want him.
I’m ashamed for the fact that I want a married man.
Penelope, are you this hopeless?
Our eyes met and I s√¢ked in a breath.
“Fk it.” He said hoarsely and pressed the stop button then slamned his l!ps on mine.
My eyes grow wide at his sudden action. At first I was shocked.
“Kss me back.” He gr0aned.
I opened my mouth and kssed him back. D@mn it. I just want to live in the moment.
He quickly move away from me and hissed loudly.
I closed my eyes, not wanting to see the regret in his eyes.
“This never happened.” He said and walk out of the elevator to towards his car.
He opened his car and sl!pped in but didn’t move.
I pressed my car key and found out which one is mine then enter before driving out.
Immediately I drove out, I saw his car following me closely.
Was he waiting for me to leave first?
“Mommy why are we packing?” Chris asked me.
“I got a job baby, we’re going to our new apartment.” I told him.he frowned and sat down on the b.ed.
“You are not happy?” I asked him.
I squart down before him and grab hold of his hand.
“I don’t want to go, I’ll miss Arley , Martha, Faith.” He said and tears brimmed his eyes. “And Mr King.”
I’ll miss them too honey.
Episode 22☔
Penny’s POV:
After the little emotional display with Chris, I left him on the b.ed and walk inside the bathroom to take my bath.
While inside the bathroom, my mind flew back to what happened few hours ago.
Bryce kssed me.
I know it is not the best timing. He Probably regret it but…..
I don’t really know what to think anymore.
I sigh and dropped the sponge and ket the running water on my body.
After taking my bath I cleaned my body with my towel before tying it around my che$t.
Walking out of the bathroom, I saw Chris still playing with my phone.
I ignored him and sat before my vanity. I stared at my face for a while then chuckled.
Why will he even be attracted to me? He have a beautiful wife, a model at that.
Curvy sxy woman.
And me.
I’m just a slim woman with small perky b©©bs and small round @ss. Nothing to be proud of.
I grabbed the dryer and started b!0wing my hair, trying to think of something or someone else except for Bryce King.
After drying my hair, I tied it into a ponytail then walk inside my closet.
I grabbed all the three boxes that I parked earlier and carried them out of the closet.
I dropped them on the bed and picked the last clothes that I set aside to wear.
I wore a blue jean and gray T-shirt and wore my black fl!p flops.
A knock came on the door and Martha walked in.
“Are you ready?” She asked me and I nods.
I really will miss them all.
“Let me help you with that.” She offered, pointing at the boxes on the bed.
“Thank you Martha.” I said and make way for her.
She grabbed two boxes and carried them out.
“Chris, drop that phone and go wait for me downstairs.” I told him, he frowned but when i glared at him he changed his mind and complied with me.
I sat down on the bed and took in the room for the last time.
I was contemplating it i should go talk to Bryce before I leave, by the way. He is the one to hand over my apartment key.
Resolving to talk to him, I picked my bag after checking if there’s anyother thing.
I walk out of the room.
Ever since I got here, I don’t even know where Bryce’s room is.
I didn’t see the need to, he is a married man and I won’t be too nosy to go around checking out his matrimonial bedroom.
“Hey faith, do you know where I can find Mr King?” I asked her, she regarded me for awhile then tilt up her chin as if thinking of a possible place.
“He might be at the garden or the cigar lounge.” She said and I furrowed my eyebrows.
Cigar lounge?
Bryce smokes?
“Where is the Cigar lounge? Where csn i find it.” I asked.
“Just follow that corridor, when you get to the back door you’ll see another duplex there.” She said.
“So the entire duplex is a Cigar lounge?” I asked wide eyed. She chuckled and shook her head.
“Of course not, they are Mr King’s private place.” She hastily said.
“Okay, thank Faith.” I smiled at her then walk off, following her instructions.
When I walk out of the back door, I saw an allwhite big two story building…
The visual was very catchy. Different types of flowers were decorated around it.
A big spring was situated in front of it.
I stared at it in admiration.
So beautiful, elegant.
I got to the front door and knocked on it. I rest my back against the wall waiting for him to open up.
I knocked again but there was no reply, then the third h@rd knock.
“Who the fk is it?” A frustrated grumpy voice asked.
I swallow h@rd and started to fidget with my f!ng£rs.
“It is me, Penny.” I said then silent fell between us.
A minute p@ssed, two, three, four, then five minutes the door was pulled open and he walk out wearing a black pajamas and a white sweatshirt.
He is obsessed with white color.
“Chris and I are ready now, I came to collect my apartment key and where it is situated.” I said and he gave me a curt nod.he dipped his hand inside his pocket and hand over the key to me.
“At the back of the subway station, not far from the company building. It is nice neighborhood. Enjoy your stay there.” He said. I was stunned. I thought.
I thought he’ll stop talking to me.
“Thank you Mr King. Also thank you for all the care and kindness you’ve showed to me and my son. I’m grateful.” I told him before turning away from him.
“Penelope.” He called and I froze.
He never call me by my full name before except for the constant Miss James or Penny.
I took a deep breath and turned around with a smile.
“What happened today was a mistake, I’m sorry for making you uncomfortable.” He said and I mentally rolled my eyes.
There goes the sorry attitude.
“If it is a mistake in your path then it is a sweet bliss Mr King because I really did enjoyed it.”
Say what Penelope.
What did you just said?
