Chapter 8: My Baby
I wore a white strapless gown.
My cleavage shows and I’m liking it.
I stare at myself in the mirror and admired the view.
I look beautiful.
Confidence building within me.
When I climbed down the stairs, L was sitting at the sofa.
He stood up and stared at me.
His eyes spoke of admiration…
And a hint of desire sparks from it…
Or maybe I’m just imagining things.
He reached out for my hand to hold and I let him.
We arrived at the Business Dinner and I was in awe of the place.
Almost all the people looked high profile and rich.
L introduced me as his secretary.
He never told anyone that I was his fiancée.
It pained me.
I know, I know.
Why do I feel about this?
He protects me, kisses me, hugs me at night.
But why is it that when we’re at work, there’s this strange side of him.
He makes me feel that I was just his secretary and nothing more.
L was talking to a group of men.
I excused myself to find myself a drink.
I don’t drink but for tonight, I will.
On the stage was Richard Poon singing I’ll Take Care of You.
Just the perfect song I need.
I should have known better.
That L was no different from the rest.
Same guy who uses girls for their own advantage.
As I sip some vodka, I saw Hailey approached L.
L excused himself and brought Hailey to a table where they sat and talk.
Then she laughed.
He laughed too.
“Excuse me? Amber?”
I turned to look and shocked to see Jason.
He was wearing a suit and it suited him.
Made him look decent.
I wonder if he could act decently.
Amber: Oh hi Jason.
Jason: Hey, I’m sorry for the way I acted this afternoon. It’s just that you’re the only girl who showed a hint of dislikeness against me.
Amber: It’s okay.
Jason: (looks at Yael) Your fiancé seems busy for you. Do you mind if I dance with you? Richard Poon is singing. It’s a shame no one dances with the tune.
Amber: (chuckles) I’d love to but I don’t think L would be happy about it.
Jason: Well, from where I stood and by the way it looks, he seemed too happy this night.
I followed Jason’s gaze and saw L laughing again with Hailey.
