Tamed episode 12

.“Samantha?” he calls her name again,
“No. Get out!!”
Shock vibrates through his body
“if you need validation just because you did a
good deed and you expect me to reward you,
you are sadly mistaken. If you wait for someone
to tell you how to treat people, then you are
really pitiful. You should know the difference
between right and wrong, you hurt someone’s
feelings, you should apologize, you don’t like
someone, you tell them, not to use them just
because…. it doesn’t matter if you are rich, your
heart is what should matter. I don’t know how
messed up your childhood was but I believe you
should have done better for yourself. You don’t
come here to tell me you apologize to someone
you hurt and expect me to clap for you… No Mr
B@ss, you should be ashamed of yourself. Were
you doing it for me?
Then you are wrong. You should have done it
for you… because me? I mean nothing to you
for you to think you are pleasing me. And
asking for a klzz, how dare you? Get out of my
house Mr B@ss… and I hope you treat people
better because you want to, because it feels
right not because some girl with a sharp mouth
had to tell you that” she says out of breath
“I am… I am sorry, forgive me” he says taking a
step back as shame washes over him, he
leaves. She closes the door, resting her back to
it. she didn’t realize her hands was shaking, not
of fear, but of something else.
Her words tormented him for days, and he even
began losing focus at work
“Mr B@ss, are you feeling well?”
“I am fine. But tell me honestly Samantha…
what do you think about me?”
She raises an eyebrow
“No, –am sorry Sophie” he closes and opens his
“Well, honestly you are a great boss but
sometimes you can be, excuse my forwardness
a pain in the @ss but we don’t mind it sir,
“Let’s @ssume for a moment that my looks don’t
“That’s h@rd not to notice”
“Just @ssume, and that I am an egocentric
arrogant dxxk. Would you still be working for
me, would you like me?”
“Honestly? Hell no!”
He sighs
“But Sir, really, we don’t complain’’
“That’s the problem. Sophie, really, I am sorry if
I ever come off as arrogant towards you, from
henceforth I would try to do better”
She looks at him, frowning “Sir, are you sure
you aren’t sick?’’
“I have been sick for a while Sophie, for far too
long, I just had a wake up call and I realize
that… sometimes, you need something to shake
you up to know how messed up you have been”
“Okay sir, thank you sir”
She keeps staring at him as she leaves
He is facing his window as he gets up.
Yes, he hadn’t been himself since that night at
Samantha’s, her words plagued him and every
fiber in his being has been burning of guilt.
Everybody he had misbehaved with, every
woman, every p@ssing stranger, it was as
though they tormented him in his sleep. He
wasn’t a bad person, he never went out of his
way to hurt anyone, but he never suffered a
fool and when it came to women, he didn’t care
if his actions hurt them, and but now, he
regrets everything.
He sighs running a hand over his face..
He really wanted to klzz her, he did. But she
turning him down and telling him to get out of
her house hurt him so much and he didn’t
blame her, he blamed himself, he had been an
@ss, a proud pompous jerk… everything she said
about him had been right and he wants to
change all that.
For her… and he had no idea why.
His thoughts of her had been so strong and un-
explainable, and every time he thinks about her
his chests hurts…
She hated him, that’s what makes it even
worse..and for the first time in his life, he
wanted to make things right..
For her, for him..
Everyone had taken his bullshits, ate it, and
acted like they weren’t hurt about it, but she had
called him out..and he was thankful. If she
hadn’t come into his life albeit in a
dysfunctional way, he would have been the
same person he had always been..
A rich Man who had no regard for others,
especially women . But now he wants to change
all that.. and he would.
So he began, changing his attitude and the way
he spoke, how he treated people even those he
thought were beneath him. What he told Ver
was true, he didn’t have feelings for her and
wanted to be her friend…and she accepted.
He even came across the waitress at the
restaurant, she had walked out on him and he
followed her and apologized, the shock on her
face was…strange. He felt, relieved. And there
was Betty, she threw a tantrum, but he told
her… he was sorry too. Like a burden, his
weight lifted .
Even his staffs looks at him strangely now,
wondering if he was feeling unwell.
He had never felt better in his life… all because
Samantha had waltzed into his life and told him
to his face how messed up he was… no one
cared to, okay maybe they were scared to but
because of her… he wanted to be different and
He sighs looking at his phone..
It’s been two weeks since that day… and every
single day he was tempted to pick up his phone
and call her… and he felt the thing he had never
felt in his life before..
He turns away from the window…
He thinks about her a lot, and if only he could
talk to her… he was going crazy and he couldn’t
explain the feelings he was having..
“Samantha!” he breaths
“Are you gonna ever talk about it or not?” Jamie
walks beside her
“Why not?”
“Because there is nothing to talk about”
“Samantha, it’s been two weeks, what’s the big
deal? Look, a guy like Mr B@ss ever h@rdly
changes but in his rarest of moments he had
been emotional open with you… why didn’t you
just go for it”
“Because I don’t like men like him, being
vulnerable so that they can get girls like us to
feel sorry for them. I mean what, allowed him
to klzz me and then what, I lose my s£nses?’’
“Maybe that is what you need. Isn’t it obvious he
likes you?”
“Mr B@ss doesn’t like anyone but himself, his
fat account and his pretty face”
“You never know… he has changed… the way he
talks and acts towards people, people are saying
maybe it’s because of a woman or because he
is sick”
Samantha seats on the chair, staring away “It’s
not of my business, if he has, good for him”
“Samantha, tell me honesty, why didn’t you let
him klzz you that night, what were you scared
“Of losing myself” she closes her eyes
Jamie nods “Maybe this time would be different,
he seems to like you”
“No… men are all the same, and he may think he
likes me because I am different, I don’t fall all
over him, I challenge him and I am a supposed
upgrade, not like the women he has around
him… like a new game he is just intoxicated
about the idea of me, he doesn’t like me and
God forbid I allow myself into that web of
“Do you like him, even a little?’’
“You are lying”
“I don’t, there is nothing to like and I am glad
that I will never see him again. Forget Mr B@ss,
I meant it when I told him to leave, he is a
proud man Jamie and I bruised his ego, they
never heal from that. At least if he is changing,
I am glad I was able to teach him some things
and I hope it makes him a better person in life,
and he needs no validation from me. He should
change for him”
“But I still think he likes you a lot Samantha”
“Well you should stop thinking and let’s go have
that ice cream okay?” Samantha gets up
“What if he shows up out of the blue… what if
he wants something more… more than he had
ever asked or given someone… what if
“Fairy tales are for children Jamie. And I and Mr
B@ss’s cl@sses are over. Glad to know he Aced ,
but really I don’t care, stop talking about him
“Okay, at least I want to formally admit that I am
rooting for you two, take one for the team’’
“Fine, let’s go”
Samantha lays on her bed… staring at the
ceiling. For the past hour she had been trying to
concentrate but all her thoughts keeps going
back to that night.
“I can’t stop thinking about you Samantha, you
drive me crazy… can I klzz you please” she
remembers his words as clear as though he
was standing beside her
She closes her eyes to will it away, but she
ends up seeing the scene in her mind’s eye, him
being close to her as she backed the wall, she
could literally hear her heart beating…
And all the while she was praying “please don’t
klzz me, please don’t klzz me”
The first day he klzzed her, she was furious and
slapped him. The second time, she had been
shocked and weak and felt… unsure, and she
didn’t know why she didn’t slap him
She had stayed up for hours, fighting the
thoughts seeping into her mind “You like him
Samantha, maybe that is why you couldn’t hit
him maybe, just maybe you didn’t mind that
She sighs
And when he now had the good s£nse to ask
her, she had been sacred. Yes scared, that if
she had said yes, she would have liked his klzz
and maybe klzzed him back.
And she didn’t want that, him being close to her
almost made her lose her s£nses, and he being,
emotionally vulnerable almost made her want to
give into him.
But now, she didn’t come out of a messed up
relationship to let some pompous rich dude klzz
her, No!.
Mr B@ss was ruthless and heartless, and the
fact that he just turned down a girl barely a few
hours ago and went to apologize so he can
come get a klzz from another only upsets her
more… and yes, she meant everything she said
to him.
But why did she feel bad, why did she feel as
though she had hurt him. And then when he left
she kept thinking about it, and she hadn’t
stopped for two weeks and she had no idea
why… why she felt the way she does.
And every time her phone beeped, she
wondered if he was the one.
Of course he would never ever call her again.
She had told him not to. He was proud, he
wouldn’t, after being humiliated and rejected. He
would never call or see her again. She told him
not to.
But yet, she missed not fighting with him. It
was crazy but… when was the feeling one had
ever any reasonable?
She lied to Jamie that she didn’t like him, but
the truth was that she didn’t know how she felt.
She knew she despised him at first, hated him
later on and now… now when she thinks about
him her heart skips and she doesn’t know why.
She sighs..
Now she would never know.
It’s been a month now, and whatever change he
had, had was probably some sort of show off,
that he could do better, it didn’t mean that he
actually have changed.
Men like Jake B@ss remained pompous,
egocentric and heartless… everything she hated
in a man and it was distasteful.
She was glad they would never have to see each
other again
But why couldn’t she stop thinking about him?
B@ss didn’t mean to do it but every single day
he finds himself parked outside her house at
night, fighting the urge to go up and knock on
her door, but he couldn’t be able to bear her
s£nding him out again.. so he would sit there
and then wait, till her lights go off then he
would go home.
“Wouldn’t you want me to go up and knock sir?”
Todd asks him one of the days
“No, Lets go” he tells him
Sometimes he would go by her office, go up to
see Mr Shelton… but he really wants to see her,
but he doesn’t.
He should forget about her, but he couldn’t..
Whatever thing he was feeling for Samantha
was deep, and if only he knew what it was.
“Good evening sir “ Jamie says ,
“Oh hi, it is Jamie right?’’
“Yes sir, one and the same” she says as she met
him leaving the building, she was leaving too.
“Lovely” he tells her opening the door for her
because she had something in her hand, inside
it was a ribbon package box, and it was written
“Happy birthday”
“oh wow, thank you sir”
“You are welcome. Have a great weekend, and
happy birthday! ”
“And you too sir” she says frowning and then
she follows his eyes “Thank you sir but it’s not
my birthday”
“Oh boyfriend’s?”
“No” she laughs “not close, but technically she
is like my sister, my boyfriend and parents all
summed up into one”
“Oh… your partner?”
She scoffs “Oh don’t be silly Mr B@ss” she
laughs, realizing herself she apologizes “Oh I
am so sorry , forgive me”
“Oh no harm done Jamie, I don’t bite, not
She smiles, he smiles back “well, it’s my best
friend’s birthday and I just wanted to get her
something, I would be going away for the
weekend so I wanted to drop it by before I leave

“Okay, well happy birthday to your best friend”
he tells her,
“Thank you” she begins to walk away and him
“Mr B@ss?”
“Yes?’ he turns
Samantha was going to kill her but, she can
apologize to her later
“Its Samantha’s birthday tomorrow” she says,
then she turns and leaves
He stands staring at Jamie until Todd comes to
“Sir, the car is waiting, your flight is by 7pm,
everything has been booked, shall we?”
“Change of plans Todd,”
“I don’t understand sir”
“Neither do I”
‘’Thank you Mum” Samantha says into the phone
as her mother wishes her a happy birthday “I
love you too” she laughs into the phone “And
tell your husband I kind off love him too even
if he is an @ss” she laughs as her mother
scolds her for calling her father an @ss
“Oh what I would do today?? Oh nothing,Jamie
is going away for the weekend with her new
beau,so I would be home watching
movies,eating chocolates and feeling 27.., oh
gatto go mum, Jamie is here,I love you” she
cuts the call
“Hi jamie, aww you didn’t have to” she hugs
“I know but still, sure you don’t want to travel
with us for the weekend” she asks Samantha
“Three is a crowd babes, no go have fun with
that fine stud of a man , I am good, I got lots
of calls and messages from work,. See,
pres£nts on the table” she points, Jamie ‘wows’
“That’s a lot”
“See I am loved so go have fun okay”
“Okay, happy birthday again Sam” she klzzes her
“Thank you James” Samantha klzzes her back,
they laugh and she leaves
It’s barely 10 minutes later when the knock
comes to her door
“Argh Jamie, this girl”
She opens to find Him there
“You!!’’ she breaths
“Good Morning Miss Samantha,happy birthday!!”
he says giving her a small sealed box
“Who is this from?’’
“I think you know from who” he walks awa , she
closes the door frowning, her heart beating as
she pulls at the ribbon and opens it to find a
smiley face turned upside down with large tear
coming from its eyes.. she frowns, seeing an
envelop , she reads
“Hi Samantha, I know you told me you never
want to see me again nor talk to me ever but… I
swear to God it’s been h@rd. Really h@rd. I want
to see you again, I want to apologize for all that
I have done, I want to quarrel and fight with you
about things that don’t make s£nse, I don’t
know, at least I would get to have you in my
personal space.” she laughs
“I know It’s your birthday, and that well… you
are home alone obviously, please at least let me
do something nice for you and if you still hate
me because I hate me too, I’ll never bother you
again. I promise I am not the same guy you
used to know, I have changed, not for you. I
was stupid to think I needed your validation. I
changed for me and I swear it’s been great…but
at least allow me tell you thank you for messing
up my world and making it spin out of control
in ways I still don’t understand. Please, let me
do something nice for you today and if it’s a
yes, I would be waiting in the car, you just have
to pack a weekend bag” he drops a closed eye
smiley” I am not ordering, I am begging”
She finds herself smiling , there is a knock on
the door
“Miss Samantha?”
She is frowning, she hands him the box, “Tell
Mr B@ss that he never learns, I will not just up
and leave just because he says” she says
“I know” she turns hearing his voice
“That’s why I said please,”
She smiles shaking her head “ I’ll be out in 20
minutes” she turns walking inside, she didn’t
see him smile, neither did he.
“Okay, let’s go”
