THE BILLIONAIRE’S P.A
EPISODE EIGHTY ONE
I summoned up courage to walk up to him standing besides his car.
“I see you haven’t gone yet. I thought you would say something before leaving. I understand why, I guess you were busy.”
He cleared his throat and automatically opened the car.
“No, I didn’t know he was waiting for me outside.”
“Oh a surprise visit.”
“It’s not like that. He just wanted to talk and clear somethings. It was actually nice. I feel much better than I have in years.”
“So you’re happy there’s hope of being with him?”
I cringed my nose at his words.
“Being with him?”
I repeated the last part.
“Yeah. I’m sure you must know he’s planning to leave his wife soon so I guess you two can hit off right where you left.”
I choose to ignore the sarcasm in his tone.
“You’re once again assuming things you don’t know without asking. He wanted to talk and let things out. Apologise and give me closure which I needed to fully move on. I kept comparing my present with my past because of him but now I think I can move on and maybe see where we….”
I paused at the use of the word “we.”
“Yeah. You know after what happened in your office I thought…. You know it’s stupid. I shouldn’t be explaining this to you ..”
“No, I want to know.”
“I kept comparing what was happening between us to what happened with Van. The kisses, dinner and everything but after what just happened I just want to see where it takes us or maybe I’m reaching for the sky and you didn’t mean any of your words or actions.”
I exhaled with a gulp waiting for a response.
“I don’t even know what’s happening between us. This is all so unexpected. One minute I’m cursing at you annoyingly and the next minute I find myself thinking about you, wishing you were here. I have no idea how it happen and now we’re kissing and I don’t know if it’s all a scam or if you’re joking, regretting events. I just don’t know ”
I added with a frustrated groan.
“Aren’t you going to say anything?”
I asked feeling naesous. He refused to utter one word.
“I love you Elena.”
He retorts in the most husky voice ever leaving me stunned.
“No, I don’t regret it. I mean every word and action.”
He added before leaning in to plant a kiss on my lips . I curved my neck kissing him back even though we were in the middle of the road.
We pulled apart smiling at one another.
“Nothing. I just want to take things slow. I’m not rushing anything.”
He pecked my lips once again.
“For now, let me take you home.”
He opened his car door letting me inside. I shunned a voice trying to make me compare this event with anything that happened with Van in the past. It’s time for a new beginnings. I have a good feeling about this one.
Damon reached out and held my hand before igniting the engine.
EPISODE EIGHTY TWO
-Two Weeks Later-
I guess the saying is true that time waits for no man. Two weeks went by quickly and speedily. After that day, Damon and I got even closer. He took me out on dates and we got to know each other even better. I ignored all the stupid comments about how I seduced my boss although they were very irritating.
Everyone tried to make me feel bad about liking my boss. I haven’t said the words but Damon always makes me remember how much he loves me. I still find it difficult to say them back because truth be told, I’m not sure if I would go that far. I care a lot about him but love…I’m just not certain.
The party came as a shock and I knew there was something shady about it. After much persuasion, he finally revealed it was just to get me to stay away from Van although it was absolutely unnecessary. He had nothing to worry about on that end.
I felt a little flattered that he planned a party for no reason just to keep me all to himself. I barely participated in the planning but oversaw everything and today, we were ready to reveal it all.
Damon and I were to leave together so I brought my dress to the office and left to change a few minutes ago. I tried my best to put a considerable amount of makeup on and felt sincerely satisfied with my reflection. The heels were a little uncomfortable but I just had to deal with it.
I twisted the knob and stepped out mistakenly bumping into Damon.
We said simultaneously and I brushed my hair.
“Wow! You look stunning.”
He complimented and I blushed.
“I need to talk to you in my office.”
“But we’re late.”
He retorted grabbing my hand before I could protest.
“Damon you’re the CEO what could possibly be more important.”
He commanded and kissed me. We’ve done this plenty of times like we were literally attracted to each other but each time a different spark erupts and it’s just better than the last.
I half moaned and whined in both pleasure and impatience.
“You’re just so beautiful.”
He says resting his hands on my waist.
“Tell me you didn’t make me come into your office just to make out…”
“Are you saying that because I told you to or….”
He reassured as we held hands.
“Well, why did you call me here?”
I asked curiously.
“I’ll show you.”
He broke our linked fingers and moved towards his desk getting a piece of paper and handing it over.
I asked as he leaned on his desk grinning.
I gulped but read it’s contents aloud with my eyes wide.
“You can’t be serious. You’re firing me!”
He said like it was nothing.
“You’re fired Miss Salvatore.”
The paper slipped from my grip and my voice became shaky.
I said with a cracked tone but he looked nonchalant and simply carefree.
“Is it so hard to believe that I fired you?”
I said trying to hold back my tears.
“Well aren’t you going to ask why?”
He said with a slight shrug.
I asked breathlessly.
I yelled unable to believe my ears.
