I touched my head after I realised what Blayze
said actually meant. Oh my goodness! I totally
didn’t even think of my appearance…I must
have looked like a mad dog to him while I
talked to him. No wonder he didn’t take me
What in the world just happened to me? Can’t I
really resist Blayze’s power? It’s as if he can
dominate over me and I wouldn’t be able to do
anything…it shouldn’t be so…Get your acts
together Caden! Get your acts together.
I walked towards the gate after I had brushed
my hair and put on my sports wear. I really
needed to go for a jog and to clear my mind.
The security guard quickly came in front of
” Don’t you worry. I’m not going anywhere
outside this estate. I’m just going for a jog.” I
assured him and he nodded before opening the
gate for me. Well, that was easier than I had
thought. Thank God, Blayze didn’t set any new
I set out jogging all the way from Blayze’s
mansion up towards the security check of the
estate. If there was one thing I noticed and it
was the fact that the mansions in this estate
were as quiet as Blayze’s home. I don’t really
think I’ve seen any of our neighbours.
Finally, I got to the check point tiredly and
then I turned to jog back home but an idea
immediately flew into my mind. I can walk out
right now and be free throughout the whole day
without anyone watching me. I could finally
have some Caden’s time alone. I immediately
turned back to the check point. I took in a
deep breath and walked ahead. There were two
security guards at they were both at opposite
post of each other and a huge iron gate stood
in between them. I walked up to the gate and
just as I was about to open it, one of them
” Excuse me Mrs Norman. ” they know who I
am…I don’t like where this is going.
I slowly turned to him. He came out of his
post and walked up to me.
” Are you trying to leave?”
“Um…yes, I just want to stroll around and I’ll
be back. ” I told him with a nice smile.
” I’m sorry Mrs Norman but Mr Norman left
specific order not to let you out of this estate
on your own except with your driver…in your
car.” The smile on my face slowly died
” Well played Blayze, well played and now…it’s
my turn…it’s high time we stop this win and
lose game and of course with ne as the
ultimate winner…just watch how I play you…” I
said to myself after I walked away from the
main gate. I brought out my mobile phone
from my pocket and dialed a number from the
“…yes hello, this is Caden Norman…” I started
cheerfully before I continued walking back
* * * * * *
I walked into the company’s building and as
usual, I headed straight to Blayze’s office. On
getting there, I realised Blayze’s annoying
secretary was nowhere to be found. Well…free
entrance for me. I opened the door to Blayze
office and walked in only to realise that even
Blayze wasn’t in his office. I gently shut the
door behind me. I walked up to the sofa and
had my seat before crossing my leg.
Well…the fun is about to begin.
” Make sure you complete that and have it sent
to my office. ” I told one of my employees as
I was leaving the meeting room and with Lisa
behind me, we headed back to my office.
” Lisa do get me a cup of black coffee. ” I told
her before opening the door to my office and
walking in. I turned my head to the left only to
meet Caden seated on the sofa with her legs
crossed and with a bag of potatoe chips in her
hand and while she chewed on the chips. I
stopped for a second on seeing her before
turning my head back to my front. I can’t
believe she wants to do this all over again.
Didn’t she learn anything from yesterday?
I turned and walked up to her. I stood in front
” Sir there is an important call for you. ” Lisa
immediately walked in interrupting me and with
a telephone in her hand while she covered the
below part with her other hand. She quickly
handed it over to me.
” It’s Mr Han. ” Lisa told me before leaving the
” Mr Norman I’ve heard from a lot of people
that you are very classy and respectable man
to work with and that you honour your clients
request but I do not know why you’ve chosen
to make an exception for me.” His voice
” I…I don’t know what exactly your talking
about Mr Han…”
” Your wife…I’m talking about your wife,
Caden.” Oh…I looked at Caden and she had
that annoying meek look.
I placed my right hand in my pocket as I
decided to remain calm.
” Yes, she…I have been informed that you are
not heeding to my request. I specifically told
you that Caden alone will design and build the
furnitures we need.”
” Mr Han look…”
” I do not want to hear any of your excuses or
reason. Just give her the job or we’re through!”
He then immediately cut the call. I swallowed
down my anger before I slowly looked down at
Caden. She still munched on her chips as she
stared at me.
” So…who was it?” She asked pretentiously
like she didn’t know anything about this.
I snorted at her.
” Really? You don’t know? I find that hard to
believe…fine…You…got the job.” I told her.
She opened her eyes wide at me before a slow
smile grew on her lips.
” Really… Whew! I didn’t think it would be this
easy…” she said to herself as she looked away
before she then turned back to me.
” Uhh…what I meant is that I thought you…you
are…are very stubborn. ” She said to quickly
cover up what she just said.
” I am stubborn but in this case…I want to
teach you a lesson by letting you have your
way…you called up Mr Han didn’t you? Even
though I told you that you are not going to
work here or any other place. ” I asked her and
she just rolled her eyes around obviously
thinking of a lie to come up with.
“Uhh…No…he just remembered me…”
” Give me your phone! ” I ordered her and she
stared at me with wide eyes.
“For…for what reason. ”
” To check your caller log and…Prove…to you
that you really did call him up and complain.” I
told her emphasising more on the prove word.
Anytime she did something wrong and I find
out that it was her, she still demands for proof
even if the evidence is clearly in front of her
and that’s why today. I must throw the damn
evidence at her face.
” You…you can’t do that…you…can’t check a
lady’s phone…it’s…it’s not appropriate…”
” Says who? Are you a lady?”
I told her and that sort of made her gasp.
“Give me the phone Caden! ” I ordered her
once more but she shook her head as she held
on to her phone in her hands.
” I…I won’t.”
” Then have it your way. ” I told as I took hold
of the phone. The only problem is that she
refuses to let go of it and I on the other hand
was not a bit ready to surrender to her whims
at this point. No…that would make her think
that she can do anything anytime and get away
” Caden… let go.” I ordered her as we began
to drag the phone.
” No…I won’t…” she said as she shook her
head. I decided to put my strength into it and
our war began. She really wasn’t ready to let
go of it and she had a pretty good firm grip on
I dragged on it harder making her get up to
her feet. Geez Caden, let go of it!
I tried to twirl the phone out of her grip but she
still refused to give up and as I took a step
away from her while I raised the hand in which
I used to drag the phone with her. She didn’t
expect I would do that and due to the
difference in our height, I was finally able to
get the phone from her but it seems she triped
while trying to catch on. The next thing I saw
myself doing was to immediately grab her into
my arms. I don’t know what I’m doing or why
but the first thing that came to my mind while
I saw her about to fall was ‘save her’.
I suddenly lost all thoughts of reasoning. There
was only one sudden motive in my mind and
that was to make sure she doesn’t get hurt. I
held her in my arms almost like an embrace
with her right hand around my neck and the
other on my chest. Our face was just an inch
apart. My heart…suddenly started to beat
faster than usual. She looked scared and
beaten and that sort of touched me a way.
With my hands at her back, I suddenly didn’t
want to ever let go. A part of me believed that
this was exactly where she belongs.
With my heart beating fast and my head
twirling around in a wierd and very unusual
form, I saw myself staring at her lips which I
have…never really done before. They didn’t
look like how they normally used to look in my
eyes…they looked…they looked very attractive
and shiny which sort of ignited something in
me. Unknowingly to me…we slowly decreased
the inch between us and each time I took a
glance into her eyes…it was as if she is
feeling almost the exact same way that I am
feeling right now and that we were somehow
connecting…I don’t really know what’s going
on with me but all I really and deeply want to
do was kiss her cherry looking lips…
” Sir I got you…” Lisa’s voice rang in my head
as soon as she walked into my office as if
bringing me back to my senses.
God! What I’m I doing?
I immediately pushed Caden away from me
and she fell on the sofa she had earlier been
” I…I’m sorry sir for interrupting…”
” No, no…”
” No sir, I can come back later. I can see that
” No, no, no…just…say what you’re here for. ”
I told her almost feeling embarrassed myself.
” I…I just wanted to give you…the cup of
black coffee you had asked me to get.” She
said as she walked up to me and handed me
” Um…thanks. ” I told her before she nodded,
slightly took one look at Caden before quickly
turning and walking out.
This is so embarrassing!
I felt the phone that I had just collected from
Caden being snatched from my hand. I turned
only to meet Caden holding it in her hands with
furrowed eyebrows at me. She looked…angry.
We both couldn’t seem to look straight into
each other’s eyes.
She picked up her handbag before walking
past me and towards the door. Something in
me wanted to stop her and drag her back into
my arms…that’s not a good thought.
She stopped when she was in front of the
” By the way…I’m going to make Mia my
assistant. ” she said without turning to me and
I gave the fastest reply that I could think of.
“Whatever. ” I told her before she then opened
the door and left my office. Suddenly…I began
to feel deserted and empty after she left.
What the heck is going on with me!? I’ve never
felt this way before and not…not towards
Caden! Whatever that’s happening…it’s not
healthy for me at all.
” What is wrong with you Blayze? ” I asked
myself in a low voice before I drank a sip from
