I have no idea why Emily finds Adrian hotter. Girl you need to open your eyes!


I kept toying with my hair, rolling a curl around my index finger, then unrolling it as he went through a file. Was it my personal file? Dude, why do you have to raise it so high?

I tried to peek in without getting caught. Oh my god. It was a suicide note and it had his initials right at the bottom of the sheet. He was planning to commit suicide!

Just kidding.

One can only wish.

I had no idea what the file in his hand was, and the weirdest ideas about what it could possibly be, kept entering my mind.

"Like what you see?" He asked directly looking at me, raising his eyebrow. A smirk plastered on his face.

Mister arrogant hothead, I was not staring at your face, and I do not like it at all. I've definitely seen better.

Okay so that's a lie.

Or is it?

"What's there to like about the file in your hand when I have no idea what it even is?" I asked, pouting my lip. Trying to look as innocent as possible.

That sure wiped the smirk off his oh so gorgeous face. Wait what? Gorgeous? No way. I meant ugly.

"Whatever." Dude seriously, that's all you can come up with.

"Okay let's just get down to business." I just nodded.

It's my first day. Please go easy on me! Before he could appoint me with my first task, we were interrupted by a knock on the door.

"Come in." Adrian said in a stern voice.

Some old lady served us tea, then left after asking us if there's anything else that we need.

I don't even like tea so I just stared at the cup with disinterest.

"You don't have to drink it if you don't like it." He said chuckling.

"Umm yeah, I'm not a big fan of tea." I said looking up and meeting his eyes. Stop staring! You're making me uncomfortable! I just want to get out of this room ASAP.

"So what's my first task Adrian." He seemed shocked by my question. Oh shit. Did I just say Adrian? "I meant Mr Henderson! I swear it just slipped from my mouth. I'm so sorry!" I said looking down. I could feel my cheeks burn. I'm sure I was bright red by now.

Being the idiot he was, he just chuckled. "It's fine with me. You can call me Adrian when noone's around." He said winking. Mr Henderson it is then.

"Emily Boston your first task is to go through these files." He said passing me some files. "I need your analysis." Then he just turned towards his laptop.

I was waiting for him to send me out. Does he expect me to go through these files infront of him?

"Are you waiting for an invitation, for you to go to your desk and get started?" He asked raising his eyebrow. His eyes still glued on the laptop screen.

I'm sure that he was watching porn.

"Not that I mind you being here. After you're done with your file work, maybe we could do some other stuff together." He said winking in my direction, a huge smirk plastered on his face.
