To take over}


(The cold billionaire)

?Episode four?

Penny’s POV:

It has been four days since I started my new job, so far it has been great.

Chris knows nothing, our daily activities still goes smoothly.

One day, one special occasion, I had prepared and left for the cafe after dropping off Chris in school.

The daily serving continues but soon I heard a voice which I wished she never heard.

“Penny? A sale girl?” The voice questioned mockingly.


“What are you doing here sasha?” I asked her trying to surpress my nervousness.

“Sis, were you fired from your former company? It is all over the net that you stole from the company.” She keep taunting me.

Stole? I never stole a dime from anybody.

“I didn’t steal from Brownie Inc corp. Stop spreading baseless rumors about me.” I said angrily.

Sasha snorts and walk closer to me.
“You’re broke now ain’t you?” She asked in a mocking tone.

“I don’t have your time Sasha, what are you doing here in Beijing?” I asked.

“Can I get cup of Ameeicano first?” She asked arrogantly. I took a deep breath and nods my head.

I walk to the counter and started making the Americano.
After five minutes I carried the drink off to Sasha.

After she took the drink from me, I tried walking away but she held me back.

She took a sip of the Americano and scrunched up her face.

“What the h.ell is this Penny?” She yelled.

I furrowed my eyebrows in confusion not knowing what happened.

“What’s wrong?” I asked her.

“What’s wrong?(laughs) you’re the most clumsy person I ever known,” she poured the drink on me. She poured it on me, her eyes brimming with rage.

The cafe erupted with ‘oohs’ when she poured me Americano.

“What……what did you just do?” I asked, my face filled with embarrassment.

“What nonsense did you just make? Is this the ice coffee I ordered for?” She asked and I stared at her in bewilderment.

“What’s going on here?” Ana asked coming closer to the messed up scene.

“Madam, is this the type of workers you have here? She just gave me a drink that I’m allergic to in replacement of the ice coffee I ordered.” Sasha said and I felt my eye watered.

How can my sister frame me up?

She is not allergic to americano.

“Penny? How can you do such? Oh my….”

“I’m suing this cafe.” She finally said.

I opened my mouth to say a word but nithing came out of my mouth.

“No Miss, don’t be too harsh. It was just a mistake Penelope is not like that.” And said but sasha snorts.

“Then fire her,” she said and smirked. “If you don’t want me to sue this place then fire the woman.”

I never knew that my sister is a dev!l in barbie clothes.

“You can’t do that sasha,where do I go then?” I asked trying to fight back my tears.

Why am I tearing up?

Why are you doing this to me Sasha.

She glanced at me and ignored me then stared at Ana.

“What do you say?” She asked her.

“Okay, I….I agree. You’re fired Penny.”She said without looking at me.

I stared at her in shock?

“And why will you fire her?” A voice asked from the entrance. We all turn to know where the voice came from.

Standing in front of the cafe is….is a man whose beauty is like that of a god. He look so so handsome.

He look quite familiar though. I widened my eyes as my thoughts became clear.

Bryce king?

What the hell! What is he doing in a place like this?

The last time I followed a news about him he is in top three of the richest persons in the world.

I lowered my head as he stepped closer and closer towards us.

Sasha eyes widened when she saw him, she took a step back and mumbled something under her breath.

“Mr, this last here threatened to sue my cafe if I don’t fire Penny, so to save my cafe where I make money to train my children. I decided to fire her.” And said sadly.

“Penny.” My name coming out of his mouth like that makes me feel so uncomfortable.

“I’ll pay for any damage done young lady, or you can go ahead and sue the cafe let’s see who goes to jail.” He said, I lift up my head slowly to stare at my billionaire savior.

His face was calm, cold and stiff. Void of emotions. The little stumble growing on his jaw makes him look very mature.

Why is he helping me?

“Me King….you can’t do that….”

“Out.” The cafe fell silent at his cold but sharp voice I lightly shivered in freight and throw my gaze back down.

Sasha quickly picked her bag and rushed out of the cafe, not before giving me a killer look.

Immediately Sasha left, he turned around and walked out of the cafe. I blinked my eyes twice before knowing what happened.

I rushed out of the cafe but couldn’t find him anywhere.

That’s weird.

Who knows if we meet again, I’ll surely thank him for today.

Maybe….maybe by chance I get to meet him again.
