It was a normal day at Alfie’s bakery.
The day was ending and Alfie was tired and wanted to head home. He only had one thing left to do. Find a new housekeeper, someone to take care of the house. The appointment was planned at the end of the day at the house.
He walked towards the car to make his way home. He was followed by a few of his own men to make sure nothing was going to happen to him.
He reached his street when in front of the house he saw this young girl stand there. He stopped the car a few house before and just looked at what the young girl was doing there. She was breathing a few times into her hands to keep them warm but overall it looked like she was waiting.
Alfie got out of the car.
“Sir?” The man behind the wheel said.
“I will walk this last part,” Alfie said and began walking towards the young lady in front of his house.
The girl was now sitting in front of him. You could see she was nervous.
“Why would I give you the job?” Alfie said.
She looked towards him and just smiled. “Well that’s up to you, I can just say I would do everything I can to be the best housekeeper you ever had.”
Alfie smiled at her comment. She had balls to just talk to him like that and she’s the first one who is trying to not sell herself.
You have been working for Alfie a few months now. Everyone around you was always talking about you working for him. He was this bad guy and that you shouldn’t be working for him. But you liked him. He was nice towards you and always respectable.
Today started badly the moment you walked up, the first thing your mom said was. “That man is no good you should stop working for him.” and that went on and on. So your humor wasn’t really great the moment you reached Alfie’s house. Thank God he wasn’t home at this time, he would have left much earlier.
You opened the door and walked into the house, making your way directly to the kitchen to hang your jacket and put your bag down.
“Goodmorning Y/N.” You heard a voice behind you.
You looked towards the voice and you saw Alfie walking towards you. “Good morning Sir, can I make you some coffee?”
“Yes, please.” You nod your head and made your way to the coffee machine.
“I really don’t know anything about you..” Alfie said. “I just realized that.’
“There’s nothing import you have to know about me, sir.’ You said to him with a smile.
“Why did you look irritated when you walked into the house?” Alfie asked.
“It’s nothing, sir.”
“Tell me please.”
“Sir, It’s just that…”You looked at him. “don’t get me wrong sir, I love to work for you, it’s only getting harder and harder because..” He was watching you, carefully listening to every word you said. “Everyone keeps telling me you’re the bad guy.”
Alfie smiled. “What are you thought on that subject?”
You placed a cup of coffee in front of him. “You have always been respectful towards me so I don’t have nothing to complain.” He doesn’t respond. “Do you want something to eat, Sir?”
“No, I’m good, thank you,” Alfie said. You wanted to walk away when he continued. “Get yourself a cup of coffee and sit down.”
You nod your head and did as he said.
You sat in front of him.
“Y/N I hope you know the dangers of this job,” Alfie said his voice serious but also with sweetness in the tone.
“Sir, I’m just housekeeping.”
“You’re housekeeping for me… People don’t see the difference in jobs.”
“You need to get that if they want to get to me they could go after you and maybe kill you,” Alfie said. It shocked you a little bit hearing that from him. It was the harsh truth you didn’t want to realize. “I get it if you want to leave after this conversation. I just wanted to let you know that I would do everything to keep you safe and everyone around you.”
He was looking at you waiting for a reaction out of you.
“Sir, If I die, I’m going to haunt your ass. Sorry for my words.” You said with a smile.
He looks down and shakes his head. When he looked up again towards you, he had a smile on his face.
“Y/N you can stay here in one of the spare rooms when you’re working. So you don’t have to hear them talk too much about me being the bad guy,” he said standing up. “Think about it.” And he walked away.
