(Found you intimidating)

?Episode 7?

Penny’s POV:

My thought was occupied by something or I rather say someone. Someone that I haven’t seen in a long time.

I sigh heavily and closed my eyes.

What did I do to make him leave me?

“A penny for you thought?” I look up to find Maggie smiling at me.

“What’s up?” I asked and he shrugged.

“Nothung much, the customer ain’t much now so tell me. What were you thinking about?” He asked and my word got caught up on my throat.

“Don’t tell me it’s that jerk Penny, don’t tell me that you still think about him.” She said angrily but I ended up nodding my head.

“I miss him Maggie, maybe if I apologize he’ll come back?” I hopefully asked.

“You’re sick Penelope, you told me what this man has done to you and you fking miss him?” She asked angrily. I lowered my head in embarrassment and bite on my finger nails.

“He is chris father.” I protest.

“He is a jerk Penelope, wake up or you’ll end up used and hurt again.” She walk out on me while I continue s**king about him.

The front door was open and I looked up to see Bryce King entering the cafe.

What is he doing here?”

I walk around the counter to the booth where he rook his seat.

“Good day mr King, what would you like to have?” I asked him.
He glanced up from his phone and stared at me.

“Americano and pancakes.” He said coldly which caused me to gulp uncomfortably.

“Coming right up, sir.” I said and walk out on him.

“Maggie please help me with the Americano while I sought out the pancake.” I said.

“Yes boss.” I chuckled at her sarcasm and shook my head.

“You are five minutes late Miss Penny.” He said and I stood like a jelly fish before him.

“It was…..sorry it won’t happen again sir.” I apologized.

He stared at me for a while and I felt myself warming up in his stares again.

He is intimidating.

“You’re nervous.” He said as a matter of fact. I gasped and dropped his orders for him.

“Do I make you nervous Miss James?” He asked me and I nods, his eyebrows twitched and he rub his hand along his stumble.

“I find you intimidating.” I said softly but he heard me.
He stare at me for awhile then avart his gaze.

“You’re right, I’m an intimidating man. But I suggest you stop getting nervous around me unless you’re trying to fl1rt with me.” He said coldly, no emotions at all.

“What……..what?” I asked in embarrassment.

How dare he?

He ignored me and continue drinking and biting s*xily on his pancake.

“Look here mr King,” i said in a hard tone. “You’re rich I know, you’re hot, s*xy, popular, most women dream man…..but you don’t have to think so of me as well. You’re just an arrogant s*xy man who thinks that everyone want to flirt with him……well for your information…..I don’t.” I said angrily, I turned around and walked out on him.

“You do sweetheart,” my subconscious said.

I don’t stupid!

How can he…..he say that to me?

Bryce’s POV:

After having four meetings straight without rest this morning, I thought a cup of drink and snack could help.

Making my way to the cafe, I sat down and that same woman came up to me again.

I don’t really know why I keep seeing her wherever I go and it is infuriating me.

“Good day Mr King, what would you like to have?” Her meekly voice boomed in my head.

“Americano and pancakes.” I said leisurely.

When she turn around and left, my eyes were fixed on her back.

Two minutes she wasn’t back yet, three, four, getting to ten.

“Here is your order sir.” She said standing in front of me with her cheek all blazing red.

Her outburst surprised me, I didn’t expect it at all.

Why would she say……
I pursed my lips in a thin line and fish out five dollars from my wallet then place it on the table and left.

Nobody absolutely no one has ever burst out at me like that.

How dare she?

I saw it in her eyes, the want.

Or was I mistaken?

Daniel opened the door for me and I get in.

“Where are we heading to Mr King?” He asked.

“Green garden.” I mumbled.

The drive made me sick, I look out of the window my eyes scanning the city.

Green Garden is my estate, fortunately I had a house there where I always went to to hide away from any negativity.

Daniel drove inside Green Garden and I walk out of the car before he could.

“Tell Katie to cancel all my appointments for this week, I’ll be working from home.” I said to him before going inside.

Immediately I opened the door, my leg was engulfed in a hug.
