THE BILLIONAIRE’S P.A
My feets were quaking by the time I stood up properly. I grabbed my purse away from him.
“What if I didn’t follow my instincts about being suspicious and trail you huh! What would’ve happened. You would’ve been mugged and possibly raped that’s what!”
Anger is visible on his face as he mouths every word.
“All for what, you don’t want me to see where you live? Do I really look like the kind of person who judges the less privilege. If that’s why you’re hiding it you don’t need to.” He adds before stoping to exhale.
“Wait, he thinks that’s why I didn’t want him to come.” I thought to myself deciding to play along. It was far better than the truth.
“I’m not judgy Elena now let me take you home.” He offers and I blink before nodding my head.
It’s pretty close by so it doesn’t take us long to get there.
“Are you sure this is the right address?” He asks and I nod my head before stepping out of the car.
“Thanks Mr O’Cornner. I guess I’ll see you tomorrow. ”
“This isn’t the office Elena and it’s not working hours. Call me Damon.” He says, I bit the insides of my lip and he zooms off.
Opening the door, I step inside and shut it behind me.
“Call me Damon.” His last words ring in my ear and I smile to myself.
“Ouch!” I groan slipping on a shoe and twisting my leg.
“f**k!” I curse holding my leg in pain.
“Why am I so clumsy!” I screamed seating on my bed. Too tired to take a shower, I kicked off my shoes and went straight to bed.
💄THE NEXT MORNING💄
My alarm beeped rapidly and I turned it off. Today was going to be a good day, I know because I woke up at 7am. One freaking hour to get ready and I intend to enjoy every bit of me.
I take more time in the shower seeing as I didn’t get to take a bath yesterday.
Picked out a better outfit and even had spare time for a cup of coffee. I hadn’t tripped on anything because I wasn’t in any rush. By the time I locked my door I was grinning like a cat. I inhaled sharply.
“Today’s going be a good day.” I repeated and boarded a cab to work 15 minutes early.
I paid the driver and continued my journey into the building still full of smiles. Then it hit me, I just jinx the day. And with the way I’m smiling, something’s bound to go wrong. I crossed my fingers hoping I was wrong about this. I got into the elevator trying to keep an open mind.
Just then, the elevator was closing but something caught my eye. Someone actually. The figure walking in with his assistant or something . Van Mikeslson.
“Oh no…” I whimpered then gulped.
As it would seem, luck was on my side. The elevator shut tightly and I was shaking inside. It took me to my work-floor and I got out immediately.
He can’t see me here! sh*t I’m dead. I need to get out of here but how!
I quickly rush into a rest room and bring out of phone.
I dial Damon’s phone, the one in his office at least and wait till he answers. The minute he does, I fake a deep cough on the phone.
“I’m so sorry Mr O’Cornner, I can’t come into work together. I feel a little sick and my throat is dry, I’ll work over time tomorrow without pay but I can’t today.” I say in one breath before coughing again.
“It’s probably because you were trying to play in the rain.” He snaps at me making me roll my eyes.
“Can I please have the day off…”
“Well, since it was kinda my fault, Yes. Get some rest, no excuses tomorrow Miss Salvatore.” He says and hung up. I heaved a sigh of relief and walk out rushing towards the elevator.
Just then, I hear Mr Dax voice behind me.
“Oh and make sure finance gets this new …..”
“f**k!” I curse running back into the restroom and closing the door behind me.
“I’ll see you soon, I need to use the restroom.”
He says in front of me, I look up and realise it’s the men restroom.
“No! No! No!” I muffle my screams and his hand is on the door knob.
If he catches me in here, he can easily rat me out to Damon and then I’ll surely get fired.
I shut my eyes waiting for him to open the door.
“sh*t! You’re so stupid.” I face palm myself before running into one of the stalls.
I hear the door creak open and Mr Dax enters the other one. He does his business and walks out.
I come out seconds later and he’s still standing there.
“I must have dropped my…” He trails off, turns back and sees me. Then, I gulp officially busted.
“Miss Salvatore. I don’t know what to ask first, why are in you in the men’s restroom or why aren’t you at your office?” He says and his eyes twitches a little.
“Umm…” I faked a cough touching my throat.
“I’m actually feeling a little sick. I know I can’t work properly so I was on my way back home but I thought if you saw me, you’ll force me to work so I tried to hide but I ended up in here.” He shakes his head lightly and I think he’s even amused.
“Nonesense. I’ll take you home myself.”
“You will!” I exclaimed surprised, I seriously thought he hates me so why is he being so nice of all of sudden.
“Yeah, come on. We should get going.” He beckons on me to come out and I did just that.
Thankfully, by the time we get downstairs there are no signs of Van Mikeslson and I get into his car.
It was daytime so I’ll have drop me off close to my place. His phone started ringing and he picked it up.
“Van, yeah. I’ll be right back, I needed to do something.” He says into the receiver making me shiver.
“No matter the cost, I must avoid Van Mikeslson.”
