I walked through the doors and into the very new, modern bar I sighed looking around trying to find my friends. I finally found two guys sitting at the end of the bar and I walked over to them. I hurried over and tapped Mark on the back excitedly.
He turned around and gasped.
"Hey how are you Sel, don’t you look sexy huh?" He chuckled pulling me into a warm big hug.
"I’m good you?" I gasped as I pulled away from him staring at his perfect face, gosh he was gorgeous. But why does he have to be gay?
"Stop checking me out Miss Gomez" he laughed and pulled my hand making me sit on the stool next to him.
"Oh I’m sorry, have- you been working out?" I chuckled embarrassedly hitting his arm slightly and he laughed.
"Yes a little, considering the ultra attention that I receive." He spoke proudly and I giggled when my eyes fell on Ryan who was sitting left to me and he raised an eyebrow at me.
"Dude you and me… are going to have a little talk later" I said sternly pointing my finger and he chuckled taking me into his chest by my side softly.
"Baby, I’m sorry" he pouted playfully making me roll my eyes and I released myself from his embrace.
"Why didn’t you tell me?" I asked looking up at him.
"Because I wanted to see this- expression on your face" He grinned at me and took a drink out of the beer he was holding and I parted my lips making him laugh even more.
"Which he never gets to see" I heard Mark say making me look back at him deadly.
"Very funny" I muttered as they laughed. They are laughing at me; now it’s time for some reverse action. “But there’s no need to enjoy guys because I didn’t make through” I let out an intense fake sigh as Ryan spat the beer out of his mouth.
"What?" he sneered and I looked at him with a wicked grin at his expression. "I’m just kidding……, see now I love seeing that expression on your faces" I winked at him as they both sat with their mouths wide open
Mark spoke stunned “What do you-“
"I got the job" I squealed.
"I told you" Ryan flung his arms around me again happily and I smiled. "Congrats babe, I’m so happy for you" Mark said as he kissed my cheek softly before backing off.
"That’s it we’re going to nirvana tonight" Mark spoke and we nodded. "Great" Ryan and I said in union.
"Let’s have some fun now baby" Mark shouted, and ordered more drinks
I rolled onto my bed and slammed my palm on the alarm; I slowly opened my eyes, squeezing them shut again as the sun rays fluttered in them I picked up my clock to look at the time, 7:25.
Shit, no, no, no, I’m going to be late for work, I ripped the covers off me, and jumping off the bed I ran into bathroom, after taking a quick shower I and slipped on an outfit suitable for my work.
Quickly grabbing my phone and bag and I ran out of the room and saw Ryan waiting for me in the living room.
"Are you ready?" He pondered as he stared at me; I gave a slight nod before walking towards him in his dark grey suit he walked ahead to the front door.
We reached the parking space and got in the car as he pulled up.
"I’ll get you your breakfast on the way" he said.
I entered the building I walked towards the lift and pressed the up button waiting patiently for the doors to open; I arrived at the floor 28, Justin’s office 5 minutes later, and was ushered inside by one of the receptionists in the department. I walked towards Justin’s door and knocked on it.
"Come in" a low voice called, I bit my lip and pulled down on the handle to come face with his massive office. I saw Justin sitting behind his desk with a mug of coffee in his hand he looked up to face me as he heard the door close behind me.
"Ah, Miss Gomez just in time" his lips twitched up into a smirk, I felt my heart flicker, that smirk will be the death of me, he lent on his desk, pushing himself forward, he stood up straight.
"Please do sit" he said and I walked closer to the desk attentively under the pressure that his eyes were wondering on me the whole time.
Taking a seat in his chair, he indicated for me to sit on the seat opposite him, the less uncomfortable seat. I seated myself on my seat quietly.
He let his tongue graze over his bottom lip before tucking it in with his teeth making him look totally irresistible. God, he is sexy!
"Are you all set for your new job?" he spoke suddenly and I smiled.
"Yes sir totally-"
"Justin, call me Justin" he cut me off in between I was too surprised and confused whether to say yes or even nod.
"Got it?" he inquired and raised an eyebrow at me.
"Yes, off course sir." I nodded rapidly and he raised an eyebrow yet again.
"I-I mean Justin - "I coughed to cut myself off registering his name in my mind. Justin, that shouldn’t be difficult.
I heard him let out a raspy chuckle before he placed his arms on the desk leaning forward and looking directly in my eyes intently.
"So as I had told you yesterday that I will give you the details about everything that you shall be required to do as my assistant. Firstly, you start off with attending to all my calls and messages regarding the dealings, next you will file and organize all the information, you will be scheduling meetings and appointments for me, you’ll be posting outgoing mails and sorting and distributing incoming mails and lastly you shall be taking dictation and observations on the conferences that I will require for outlook, is that clear?" Justin said firm, hitting me with another intense glare.
"Yes" I managed to squeeze out while lost in translation. He just gave me a nod before as he pushed his chair back from the desk. He walked over to my chair.
"I want to show your office where you’ll be working" He spoke very professionally and I nodded rising up.
"Please follow me" he spoke emotionlessly. I looked down and followed behind Justin out of his office, he was fast so I had to maintain a pace with him to coop. I walked through the lobby taking in every aspect of the office. We passed through a hallway until we finally reached a door and Justin stopped pushing the doors open energetically revealing an enormous furnished room.
Eagerness took over me as I began walking over to my desk to examine the things waiting for me. There was a computer, a laptop kept on my desk, tons of file work, a telephone. Wow, everything was so modernized; the room had a striking glass wall showing the perfect view of the city.
"If there will be any trouble concerning anything then don’t hesitate to call me." I gasped not even realizing that Justin was right behind me, I could hear him breathing, and he had a steady rhythm, his deep raw voice melted in my ear like a caramel. I looked at him, confused yet surprised, I soaked his passionate gaze in, watched his beautiful deep brown eyes watch me as his tongue graced his bottom lip.
I blinked a couple of times. “I will.” I spoke awkwardly.
He closed his eyes briefly and pressed his lips together in a firm line. He stepped back before opening
"I shall be in my office, you can dial number 2 to call me, for today I will send in Lauren and she’ll guide you with your work” he spoke emotionlessly and I nodded.
"Okay" I replied and he passed a faint smile before turning around he walked out of the room, closing the door behind him.
I tapped my pen intermittently against the black marble of my desk in anticipation. It was getting late and the office had gotten somewhat cleared out by the other employees. I looked at the time, 6:45; I let out an intense sigh when I heard a voice.
"How is everything going?" his silky smooth voice came across the other end of the room I looked up and saw Justin standing against the doorframe of the door with a glass of clear liquid in his hands which I highly doubted was water. His shirt was folded up to his elbows which he was wearing without the blazer and tie, the top few buttons were undone showing off his slightly tanned, hairless chest and his dark hair was a sexy mess, when I looked at his face I saw his beautiful plump lips were covered up in a smirk.
"Uh-good, um I was just sending in the last e-mails." I muttered and stood up awkwardly and he walked closer.
"I think it’s enough for today, you should get going now." he spoke hoarsely and sipped from his glass licking his lips after that.
"Alright" I cleared my throat when he was about to turn around. "But uh is there anything else you wanted from me?" I asked nervously tugging a strand of hair behind my ear.
"No, nothing" He rasped his eyes locked on mine and I swear I saw them twinkle.
"Okay" I whispered as he walked out of the room.
"Where did you get them from?" I asked Lydia eyeing the contacts case carefully while sitting in her living room.
"Grand opticals." Lydia answered.
"They are beautiful." She squealed handing them back to her.
Lydia shrugged looking at me smiling devilishly. “So Selena tell about this new boss of yours, how is he like?” she grinned
I giggled before replying. “He’s amazing.” Lydia smirked and leaned in from the other sofa.
"And a whisperer told me that he’s very hot?" she asked making me laugh.
"Don’t even get me started…….he’s breathtaking. Like he is the definition of perfection, all dark and brooding and you know sexy…" She gushed and Lydia giggled.
"Hmm good for you, because he could be you know interested in you?" She squealed in excitement.
I busted out laughing. “No way, Lydia that’s never going to happen…He is incredibly handsome…..he’s just too beautiful for me.”
"Selena—" she almost shouted. "Don’t you ever say that again, any guy would be more than lucky to have you as his girlfriend" she said raising an eyebrow at her.
"Hey, hey, hey guess what?" Ryan puffed storming in the living room attracting their attention.
"What?" I asked.
"Selena I’ll be coming to your office tomorrow" Ryan seated himself next to me on the couch.
"What why?" she asked twirling her head to look at him.
"My boss just called. Me and my executive manager are to attend a conference ordered by your boss tomorrow evening at your office" he finished.
"But wait….. Tomorrow we have to be at Mark’s place, it’s his parents’ 25th anniversary remember?" Lydia spoke in between making Ryan nod.
"Well no problem, me and Bridget will come together right, after the meeting?" he said looking back at me and I nodded in agreement.
"Great" Lydia said and stood up.
"I’m going to washroom, be right back" she said as she escaped the room. I sat there with a magazine in my hands when from the corner of an eye I saw Ryan staring at me; I crocked my head to him.
"Ryan?" she smiled while Ryan just stared back at her, taking note of her beautiful blue eyes. He couldn’t help feel attracted to her physically. She was beautiful, smart, and independent and not to forget extremely sexy and to him she was his escape from the stressful world. She’d been his best friend since childhood and now that they’ve grown up he can be something to her, something more than a friend.
"Ryan? Why are you staring at me like that? It’s creeping me out" I voiced out, breaking him out of his thoughts.
"Um, nothing—" he nervously looked down "It’s just that I wanted to talk to you about something…… actually I wanted to tell you something" he cleared his throat looking back at her and she nodded wanting him to continue.
"What?" she asked and he looked away, of course he was nervous, and who wouldn’t be?
"N-Nothing" he whispered
"Come on don’t be such a chick" I giggled hitting his arm lightly and he smiled.
"Tell me" I said again and he took a deep breath.
"Well, it’s just, I wanted to do it more differently, more smoothly but I guess now is perfect" he paused. "Selena I’ve know you for many years by now and I want you to know that I really li — "
"Am I interrupting something?" A voice came from across the room and there she was Lydia with her eyebrows raised.
"Oh nothing." I told her. "Yes so you were saying?" I said looking back at Ryan who was now scratching the back of his neck.
"Um never mind…." he trailed off.
I sighed. “Hey, hey I’m still listening” I said softly.
"Say what you have to say Ryan because we have to go to the salon like right now?" Lydia exclaimed.
"Uh, you guys go, I’ll talk to you later" Ryan said giving her a small smile.
"Are you sure?" My eyes narrowed.
"Yeah you go, just be careful okay?" he said.
"Really Ryan careful, how old do you think we are 2?” Lydia taunted him laughing, i quickly picked up my bag from the kitchen counter before walking past Ryan giving him a quick kiss on his cheek making him smile.
"Bye" I said walking to the front door with Lydia.
Getting into the car, Lydia pulled out the car from the parking lot. “Selena” She spoke making me look at her
"There is something I was thinking" she said and I threw her head back on the car seat.
"What?" she said and Lydia took a second before saying further.
"Do you feel that like maybe Ryan has a slightest crush on you?" she spoke as she took a turn making my widen her eyes.
"What?" I almost screamed and Lydia shrugged.
"I-I don’t know, it’s just a thought" she said and I stayed quiet, staring back at her.
"I think he likes you" she supposed.
"I like him too" I mumbled.
Lydia shook her head. “No, no, I mean he likes you, like more than a friend” She continued.
"Shut up Lydia, he’s my best friend." I snapped at her bitterly knowing what she actually meant. "Don’t even say that, we both can never like each other like that." she said looking back at me.
"I was just saying" she spoke bringing her hands up in defense and I rolled her eyes.
