"Are you okay? You look like you've seen a ghost." A voice said, the person waved at my face, I turned to see Yvonne.

"I think I'm in trouble."


"He asked for me... Mr. Kings." I said and her mouth formed into an 'o' shape. "Remember? I came late today, what if he wants fire me-"

"It's okay, calm down... Maybe... Well he might just want to know why you were late, I don't think he would fire you and I could escort you there if you want."

"Yes. Please do."

"Okay." She chirped with a huge smile on her face. She entangled her arm in mine and we walked towards the elevator.

We entered and the door closed and it started moving. "Relax, you look tensed." I heard Yvonne say.

I sighed. Soon it stopped and we stepped out and walked towards the reception. Yeah, there were also a reception here for those waiting to see him.

"Thank you so much, you can go now-" she cuts me off.

"It's okay, I want to be here for you, what are friends for?" She said with a friendly smile.

"Thank you." I said and walked towards the lady beside the table in the left hand side. "Mr. Kings called?" I asked.

She shook her head. "I'm sorry ma'am but Mr. Kings is not at work now and he never asked for anyone." My eyes widened. Then who called?

"Oh. Thank you." I said turning around. Yes! He wasn't calling me, but who did?

"What happened?" Yvonne asked. "Unfortunately, he never called." I said.

"Oh... Then who called you?"

"I don't know." The person did say 'boss' though. Wait. We call some people in higher levels than us boss.

"Was the person referring to another person?"

"Maybe, I suspect the person would be Jake, he always calls you."

Ah, yes. What was I thinking? How could my mind just go to Mr. Knight? Aren't I stupid?

"I'm sorry, I perturbed you for no particular reasons."

"It's okay, you might want to go see him, it's been long since he sent for you."

"Yes, I would see you later." I said walking to the elevator. I got in and pressed the 4th floor.

It finally stopped and I got out and walked to Jake's office, but he wasn't there.

I looked around. "Oomph!" I collided with a wall. Stupid wall! I looked in front of me to glare at it.

But it wasn't a wall, but Mr. Kings. Good thing I hadn't fell down. "Oh, I'm so sorr-"

"Are you blind?" He suddenly say with a scowl catching me of guard. "Uh?"

"Wow, she's actually dumb." He said, his dark eyes surveyed me and I felt like punching it. But, he's my boss. You're going to let him insult you?

"I'm not blind, and I'm certainly not dumb." I stated firmly, he might be my boss, but he shouldn't insult me.

"Excuse me, I don't have time for this." He said.

"Yeah, but you do have time to insult ladies." I said. And that's the most stupidest thing ever, go find something better to do. I hissed in my mind but the way he was looking at me says I said it out.

Oh, I did! "What... Did you just say?"

"Nothing, I wasn't talking to you... I was... Recalling a movie I watched."

He raised an eyebrow, amused. Those perfectly shaped eyebrows. Damn.

His phone suddenly rang, oh thank god! I gestured that I have to go. This is a huge opportunity! I quickly walked away glancing back only a few times.

"Hey, why are you so much in a hurry?" I looked at the person in front of me. "You called, right?" I breath.

"Yeah... A long time ago, but you didn't come so I had to go do it myself." He said. What? He went to go do what I was supposed to do, I felt so bad, I'm taking advantage of our friendship. Pfft, you didn't know he was the one calling you though.

"Oh Jake! I'm so sorry, i-"

"It's okay." What's up with people cutting me off?

"No, it's not... I feel so bad, how can I repay you?" I said. "It's okay, Tessa... Besides it turned out if I hadn't gone there myself something would have gone wrong." Oh.

"Okay." I said with a smile, he suddenly brought his hand towards my face.

Was there something on my face? His hand moved towards my ear and he tucked the loose strands of hair beside my ear.

Oh. "Thank y-"

"What's going on here?" A beautiful voice said. But see what I meant by people cutting me off?

I turned to see Mr. Kings, with the look on his face, one could tell that he was angry. Well he has been like that all day, I guess, because this morning at the conference room he wasn't looking happy, I'm surprised those ladies gawking at him didn't notice his mood.

I don't blame them though... Cause he is sure as hell one good looki-

Shut up!

"Nothing, sir." I replied. I noticed Jake studying Mr. Kings, I looked at Mr. Kings who was looking at me. Blush crept to my face.

"I was telling her, how beautiful she looks." Jake said and my eyes widened, what? that was not what we were talking about.

"Are you two dating?"

"No." I said.

"No... Yet." Jake said. What the hell? "I see."

Something tells me they know each other so well, yep. I think they do. Who would taunt their boss? because there were taunting looks in Jake's eyes.

They were looking at each other in the eyes, you know, the friends taunting each other thingy.

I sighed slumping on my office chair, after a long walk back to my office it felt like I was going go collapse.

I would have taken some rest, but you see the paper works before me? It says no to rest.

I sighed and began doing some paper work. A lady walked in with an envelope in her hand.

"I was asked to give you this, ma'am." She said and gave it to me before walking out.

Who sent this? I opened the envelop and my eyes widened at its contents.

Jesus. I'm so sorry guys, so so sorry. I said I'd give you guys an update 2 days ago and I didn't, I'm sorry.
