Tamed episode 7

Samantha stares at him..
“can I help you?’’ she frowns
He is taken aback , “Well it depends. The last
time we saw you spilled coffee on my suit and
had the tabloids gossiping for days, took a
whole lot to kill the story and an awkward
interview to state that…the mystery girl was non
other than an intern whose stay was brief and
unsettling . Good thing I kept your name out of
it. It did cost a lot too, some media houses can
be quite the leech and-“
“I am sorry but is there a point to this?’’ she
cuts him off rather impatiently
He smiles “You haven’t changed much, you just
added a bit of arrogance to your stance, how
“Mr Jake B@ss I believe you-“
“Oh you do remember me. For a second there I
thought you were a robot and –“
“Oh make no mistake Mr B@ss I do not only
remember you but I do remember that I never
liked you. And again, my question, why are you
following me?’’
He is taken aback again..
“Well, I just wanted to make sure it was you”
“And you have, is there anything else I could
help you with?’’
“Yes… can you put your guards down, this
doesn’t fit you… I mean the dress is beautiful
on that body of yours and I’d say you did clean
up nicely “
“Flattery Mr B@ss doesn’t work for me, and how
I look shouldn’t be your concern”
Okay now this was rather strange, he didn’t
believe his eyes when he saw her. That once
nerdy looking girl that had been a pain in his
neck on her brief stay in the company.
She had always had that sharp mouth, always
trying to counter things but now, even her tone
was different, she even looked different, more
sophisticated oozing with cl@ss and confidence,
which she had always had but now it was even
more annoying. Maybe he thought if he walked
up to her, she was going to be …well,
submissive seemly the fact that she made him
lose an opportunity, embarr@ssed him in front
of staffs and guests. She should be apologizing
about now, maybe even asking on how she
could make it up to him for being …
incompetent and un-mannered ..but here she
was..being the typical her, only this time…an
extra dose of “I-still-don’t-bend-to-your-rules-
Okay maybe he should try another tactics
“Hey relax, no need to be on a defense, I came
in good faith. Okay, I looked for you when you
“Why? To fire me … oh you did that already.
Why did you look for me, to get back to me for
ruining your suit? “
“oh no, actually, that file, the one you forgot to
bring along …”
“Right, I apologized for that and it’s what.. over
three months ago, are we still on that?’’
He smiles “I just wanted to let you know that I
ran into the head of Council of leaders about a
month ago after you left and I gave him the file,
he was impressed… more impressed about the
addition you made to the project, it was quite
revealing. I had a sit down, it took a few weeks
but I finally got it, the approval, now I would
have waited another year, I guess they liked it
too much… I got it. Work commenced 3 weeks
Something that would have taken another year
for a sit down, within three months, I had my
baby project up, and soon…it’s going to be a
great place for innovative minds and the best
professional engineers in the country. “
“Is this the point where I say congratulations?”
“If you will yes. But I had hoped whenever I see
you again I would say thank you and apologize.
Who knew I would run into you today”
“I didn’t do anything out of the ordinary. If you
gave your staffs half the chance at things, I am
sure even your secretary would have come up
with something better.. I just took what you had
and made it into something more… your ideas…
my expertise and added knowledge, pure
“But still..thank you. I believe I still owe you for
your duration of time you spent at my company,
there was no forwarding address or account
number, I actually kept it for you… well hoping
to give it to you. I don’t owe people, and if you
would give me your account details I would
have the accountant do justice to it” he brings
out his phone, she raises an eyebrow
“When I left and closed down my accounts it’s
because I didn’t need your money, so there is
no need for that now… if you would excuse me”
She began walking away, he stops her by
holding her elbow
“we are having a conversation… besides I am
being polite even talking to you. I don’t even
know why I am thanking you, in fact you are
right, it was my ideas you just expanded. It was
all mine not yours. Plus it was because of my
persistence that got me back into the good
graces of the council of elders and made him
push for approval. I only came here to say
hello, because when you left you left without
your due pay but if you don’t want it, it is fine,
but you will not walk out on me like that while I
am talking Miss Samantha Brookes”
She looks at his hand on her hand,
“You will let go off me right this minute Mr
B@ss or I will call security on you”
He laughs “You wouldn’t dare. Do you know who
I am?”
“No the question is, do you know who I am? Out
there in your company you may be Mr B@ss and
everyone bows and klzzes your feet and throws
themselves on the floor for you, but in here… I
am Boss and I can have you thrown out for
disrupting my event. And before anyone could
query me for embarr@ssing Mr Bash, the multi-
billionaire, the big sponsor of this gig, the
damage has been done. I do not work for you
any more Mr B@ss and you are not the Boss of
me. And if you don’t let go off me you are
going to regret it, and I mean reputation-wise.. I
am sure you can be able to spare some loose
cash to rid the tabloids of such an unfortunate
incident that would happen, now I won’t be that
mysterious girl anymore, I will be the huge
frown on your face… I know you don’t like to be
on the other side of the divide, or the coin or
when you are not the calling the orders, but at
the moment I think what I want right now is way
bigger than your over sized now, let me
go!!!” he lets go off her, shock on his face
“And by the way of speaking, it was an honest
mistake when I forgot that file back in the
office and costed you that opportunity, but I am
glad you got it back. But you Mr B@ss had left
me stranded in a city with no means to come
back at all. How I got home, I am sure you had
no idea, and that is worthy of my anger, yes I
made a mistake which was unknown and
unplanned but you made a graver one by
choosing to kick a girl out of your car just
because, did you ever think that I might have
come to harm’s way, I was your employee, you
already sacked me then, I get it, my fault, I was
trying to apologize but in anger I was put on the
streets and literally had to make a call I had
promised not to do unless it is to make the
person happy.., and the coffee spill was only a
light dent to your ego. Now, all that is past and
over, you do not need to seek me out for talks
or for us to reminisce on past times… it was a
Boss and Employee relation gone bad, and
severed, I left and all went well. I do not see
why you are standing here and talking to me Mr
B@ss, surely I believe there are more important
things for you to do… like never leave your lady
unattended to and talking to another, that is very
ungentlemanly of you Mr Jake B@ss” she says
“What lady?’’ he frowns
“Typical, still very typical Mr B@ss” she replies
shaking her head
“B@ss Honey I have been looking everywhere for
you” Veronica purrs coming behind him and
hugging him, he tenses, then she turns to
“Oh hi, Samantha Brookes is it?..this..the event
is so beautiful, you did a great job, your boss
must really be happy to have such a gifted
mind and hands in his fold, everyone wants to
meet you, they all seem to want to organize
something ..I mean WOW!!!…but wait, have we
met before today, your face looks familiar?’’
Oh yeah we have? About a couple of months
ago when you were practically throwing yourself
on Mr B@ss despite him telling you that you
were nothing but his bed mate when he feels
like and on other days you mean nothing to
Samantha smiles “Oh, in my former life. Mr
B@ss , Miss Veronica, enjoy the rest of the
evening and don’t forget to carry a souvenir
home , it’s our thank-you package for being
amazing sponsors” and then she walks away ,
Jake B@ss watches her leave, Veronica speaks
“Baby, is everything okay, you look as though
someone upset you, “
“I am fine” he smiles stiffly . “And don’t call me
baby please, Jake or B@ss is fine. I will have
Todd drive you home, have to get to the office
for some urgent work’’
She frowns “Really, you didn’t mind me calling
you more than baby a few hours ago when you
were enjoying the feel of my arms and the
warmth between my legs and now you want to
s£nd me home? I thought I was coming back to
your place ?”
“I told you Vero, no strings attached.’’ He says
walking away
He was upset, and it wasn’t Vero.. it was that
lady named Samantha Brookes.
How dare her talk to him, him Jake B@ss that
“Thank you everyone, have a good night” she
was seeing off the few of the remaining
“Samantha dear, so you would think about it and
accept our offer?” the lady standing in front of
her asks
“Yes ma’am , I would run it over with Mr
Shelton, and I would get back to you’’
The lady smiles and walks away ,
“Okay Samantha , have a good night..” Mr
Shelton comes forward with a smile
“Oh thank you Mr Shelton, “
“Should I have one of the drivers take you
“Oh that would be awesome sir I just-”
“Oh no need for that Mr Shelton, I would take
her home” they both turn to see him walking
towards them
“Mr B@ss, I thought I saw your car leave already,
didn’t know you were still around” Mr Shelton
says as Jake B@ss gets close to him
“Yes it did, went to drop a friend of mine home,
but my car is here”
“No bodyguards or security details sir, not trying
to play invisible Mr B@ss are we?’’ he laughs
“Oh no Mr Shelton, I just have some unfinished
business with the lady”
Shelton raises an eyebrow, Samantha was a
beautiful woman, it’s understandable that any
man would want to sort her out, in fact a couple
of men had been staring at her and a few had
made advances, but like a lady she had politely
put them down.
And now, Mr B@ss was lurking around to talk to
her, he smiles, everyone knew that women fell
over themselves for him, maybe he has eyes on
Samantha. But for the short period of time he
had known her, She seemed not easily swayed
off her feet, but was focused and determined,
she had never shown him a boyfriend or
excused herself to go on a date. He had even
asked her once if she was into girls and she
had laughed wholeheartedly and told him she
liked men, but… there are men and there are
men. He didn’t understand what it meant but..he
let it slide.
Now Jake B@ss is looking at her as though she
had stolen something from him, why would
anyone see a fine woman like her and frown.
He shakes his head
“Goodnight Mr B@ss and Samantha, have a good
night” he says klzzing her cheeks, shaking Jake
B@ss and leaves
Samantha without looking back at Jake B@ss
made her way upstairs, she needed to pick her
bag and leave, why was he still here, why didn’t
he follow his lady friend and leave.
She told herself that if she ever ran into him
again, she was going to use her sl!ppers and
chase him, she was wearing heels… she
wouldn’t want to put a hole in his head but if he
as much as annoys her, she would make the
hole really big.
“A lady who is so confident, do you think it’s
right to be the last person here, it’s not safe”
he says following behind her
“It’s not your concern Mr B@ss, you can leave, I
can take care of myself and if you are so
concerned about what is safe and what isn’t…
leaving me stranded in a city shouldn’t have
been an option. Please stop following me” she
says opening the door to her office and shutting
it, she bends to pick her bag, he opens the door
and entered.
“What in the world are you doing?”
“Look Samantha, no one talks to me the way you
do and it infuriates me, and you walk away when
I talk to you, who the hell do you think you are,
spoiling my evening, and that day? you deserved
it, you were lucky I didn’t do more”
“If that makes you sleep well at night then carry
on, just please step out of my way’’ she told
him frowning
“And if I don’t?’’
“You really want to go down that road? I know
you don’t like being told what to do Mr
pompous rich and whatnot, I also don’t like to
be told what to do, but in my case, it’s within
my rights. Now step out of my way Mr B@ss,
there is no reason why we must continue talking
to each other, I need to get home and you are
making my evening sourer by the minute”
He stares at her, wondering why she was
making him really upset. Maybe because other
girls would have been swooning but she, she
was a thick skin. He never looked at her as
anything other than his Intern and part time PA,
he was terribly infuriated after that day in the
city and kicked her out without thinking and he
didn’t regret it, coming back to find the file and
see that she had worked h@rd on it, he felt a
little guilty and tried to reach her, not to
apologize but to make sure she got paid, that
little stunt in front of his guest… was a b!0w,
but he shook it off. Now standing here with her
and all he sees is a feisty woman willing to
make a point “I don’t bend for no one, I don’t
care if you got the dough, I am my own person”
which should have been commendable but it
was annoying, he was used to women, his bed-
interests,his workers and swooners bending
over for him, even if they were just p@ssing by
or random faces… but her… this Samantha
Brookes is a different specie all together … she
was supposed to be part of the weaker vessel
and here she was telling him to his face that he
doesn’t mean shit and doesn’t flutter her
feathers… not that he wants it to but… it was
really upsetting not to be…erm..treated the way
other women treat him, with sparks in their
Or maybe she was one of those women who put
up a front, maybe a little push would do, he
was so going to tame her
“Get out of my way Mr B@ss”
“Maybe this would shut you up” he grabs her
and klzzes her. Yes, she would give in now,
women, they were all the same.
He felt her shock and then in another second,
he felt dazed as he held his face,
She had pushed him and slapped him, h@rd on
his face
“Don’t you dare ever do that again Mr B@ss, I am
not one of those girls and you think you can
enforce your will on me, do you think I actually
do like you and you think you can just klzz me
and I will melt? Try that again and you will
regret it… I am a strong independent woman and
your charms, all this doesn’t work on me, don’t
you ever try that ever and stay the hell away
from me Mr B@ss, what the hell is wrong with
you… MY GOD!!!!” she spat to his face, nudges
him out of the way and goes down the stairs
He is shocked..
Ok..this was strange, this was really strange,
then he became angry again and follows her
down the stairs.
She was gone .
“Damnit!!’’ he swore
He didn’t like her, he was trying to shut her up…
and now it only got him a slap… he touches his
Oh Miss Samantha, this is far from over.
You would be seeing more of me..
He dial’s a number “Hello Mr Shelton, I have a
preposition for you”
She wouldn’t know what hit her, he smiles
