He stuck his hands between the doors, before they closed completely, prying them open again.
He smirked at Feyre, like he had all week, and she felt a little thrill at the sight of him.
Seeing Mr. Handsome had been the highlight of every day this week and she had been terribly disappointed just now, when he hadn’t shown up at their usual time. Feyre didn’t know if she’d manage today without his cocky smirk. It never failed to brace her for what was to come.
Feyre hated her job.
She’d fought long and hard with Tamlin over whether she was allowed to work at all. Tamlin wanted her safely tucked away at home, but Feyre couldn’t stand it. She wanted to be out there and contribute. So after long and tedious discussions, that had involved much shouting and some wall-punching, he had agreed to let her work with Hybern, a company he had close relations with. Tamlin’s friend Ianthe had inquired on Feyre’s behalf and she got a secretary position, doing mischanellous tasks for the boss Hybern himself.
And she hated everything about it. But it was still better than sitting at home, waiting for Tamlin to spare her some attention.
