” And if I refuse?” I saw myself challenging
him. Me Caden, challenging Blayze Norman! I
might have a little bit petite but I’m not one to
be kicked around as football.
” Get up…” he grabbed my wrist to raise me
” Don’t do that! ” I warned him as I struggled to
get his hand off my wrist.
” I thought you said you wouldn’t touch
me…well are you taking advantage of this
situation? ” I blurted out. He stopped for a
second and stared at me in a way that if only
looks could kill then I would have been dead
by now. He slowly let go of my wrist and took
a step backward. He put his hands in his
pockets. I rubbed my poor wrist and gently lay
” I wonder how your father would feel if he
found out tomorrow that his company would be
” Seriously Blayze!? Please don’t play with my
father’s sweat…okay let’s do it this way…why
don’t I just lay here for sometime till I’m
sleepy then I’ll leave. It’s lonely and boring in
” No! I’m very busy and I don’t need any
” So you do admit that I’m attractive. I’m so
attractive that you wouldn’t be able to focus if
I’m here.” Caden keep going!
“No? Prove it…prove that I’m not attractive to
you in anyway by letting me stay here. ” I told
him without even being sure that this tactic
would work. He was silent for a while giving
me death glares. The worst part was that he
never left his cool zone.
He suddenly took a step closer and bent a bit
as he drew closer and closer.
” W-what are you doing? ” I had to ask him.
” Have your fun now ’cause very soon…I’ll be
the one having fun in watching your family
suffer. ” he told me in a whisper that I could
almost feel his hot breath on my face which
sent strange shivers down my spine. He gently
drew away before he turned and walked back
to his table. He took his seat and continued
I won!? I seriously won!?
One point for me.
I went through the documents my table and
went through a new formed transaction with a
company. My eyes felt heavy so I rubbed them
with my hands to release them a bit. I yawned
before I stood up with some papers in my
hands. I have to research more on them. I
walked further to another shelf and picked out
the book I wanted. I went through some
pages. My neck felt stiff and uneasy so I had
to straighten my neck. unknowingly my eyes
shifted to where Caden laid. She had already
fallen asleep. I sighed irritatedly as I
remembered her clear words that she would
leave once she feels sleepy. All of a sudden,
she had forgotten her so confident words. I
focused back on what I was reading.
She suddenly started snoring and it sounded
strange. I turned to her with furrowed
” How can a lady snore so much…” I asked
irritatedly before I angrily shut the book before
I walked up to my table. I picked up my
“…and she has the guts to talk about her
being attractive. ” I said in a murmur as I
walked out of my office and shut the door
I gently and slowly fluttered my eyes open
even if the sudden bright light was too much. I
tried to raise my head but I felt a sudden sharp
pain in my neck. Anyways I still forced myself
to get up. As I rubbed my neck, I looked
around and realised I was still in Blayze’s
office. I took a look at the time and it was
past eight in the morning. Could it be that I
had slept here the whole night and Blayze
didn’t bother to take me inside to a warmer
room? Now my neck aches and I feel cold.
Now I know how much he really hates me. I
stood up and sluggishly left the office.
I saw him from where he sat at the dinning
table having breakfast all alone as he read
through a paper in his hand. Work right!
Baby…work! I walked angrily up to him,
brought out a seat and sat down. He took one
look at me and pretended like he never saw
me. He went on with what he was doing.
Sipping his tea with one hand and with the
other hand he held the document reading it.
” Now I know how much you hate me…how
could you leave me there? Do you know how
much pain you’ve put me through? ” I asked
him but he just ignored me and continued with
what he was doing and it was annoying.
” Are you listening to me at all?” I asked him
but he just behaved like I wasn’t there. He kept
his cup on the saucer and stood up, picked up
his phone from the table and walked out on
I couldn’t help but feel very annoyed. I know I
caused this at first for wanting to stay in his
office but it’s still his fault. I felt very bored
and restless in the room. I wierdly needed
company and all he needed to do was wake
me up to go to the room.
“I cannot believe he did not eat his food again.
” I heard Gloria complain as she came to clear
” What do you mean by that? I just saw him
having his breakfast.” I asked her honestly
“See this…” she said as she opened the lead
of the serving dishes on the table and I almost
opened my mouth in surprise. None of the
food was touched. Everything was still
steaming hot and untouched.
” All he do is drink his tea and go back to
work. He did not eat anything last night and
now nothing again. That poor man, nobody to
talk to. ” Gloria said sadly before she picked
up the cup.
” No one to talk to? What about his family?
Father, mother, siblings, uncles, aunts, cousins,
nieces, nephews? ”
” They not around. ” Gloria said before she
turned towards the kitchen. I suddenly became
very curious. I immediately stood up and
” What do you mean by…they’re not around? ” I
asked her as she dropped the cup and saucer
on the table in the kitchen. She looked up to
” You don’t know anything? Master Blayze told
you nothing upon you be his wife?”
” Uhhh…um…yeah…of course he did. I think I
just forgot…okay I’ll go to my room. ” I told
her with an unjust smile. I was doing it again. I
was lying to her and it’s frustrating. I just hope
my effect doesn’t come very soon.
” You hungry?” Gloria asked me before I could
leave the kitchen. I turned to her with a smile.
” It’s like you know me very well. ” I told her
as I happily walked up to her and took my
seat. She set all Blayze’s untouched food in
front of me and I immediately dug in. I must
admit that I have a large appetite. I’m always
ready to eat.
