(She likes him,
but he’s cold-hearted😈)
By: Faith Lucky
I brushed my hair in front of the mirror, trying not to make a sound since it was just 5.46 a.m. and the rest of my room mates were still asleep.
Thank goodness I’d be going to *work* on time today.
I dropped the hair brush when I was done and was about leaving the room when I noticed Nina turn.
“Hey” she called in a whisper and I stopped to look at her.
So, she’s been awake?
“Happy birthday” she smiled.
It’s my birthday….
Hmm. I’d actually told them about it yesterday.
“Thanks” I said happily and left the room.
And officially, I’m 18.
As I walked down the quiet hallway, I felt so happy with myself. I was 18 years old – yet looked like 20. Ugh!
Too bad I won’t be celebrating it with my family. I won’t be celebrating it with anyone at all. Gosh! I’m just stuck in this God – d@mn institute – working as someone’s personal maid.
So many thoughts kept flying through my mind as I thought of it and finally, I got there.
I checked myself to be sure I was still okay and taking in a deep breath, I knocked on the door.
I didn’t hear any reply and I slowly pushed it open and walked in.
Geez! He was standing in front of the table. Didn’t he hear me knocking or what???
“Good morning, sir” I greeted with a bow and glanced at the wall clock.
5:59. I was d@mn early!
“Go in and make me some coffee” he said coldly without looking at me and I felt like asking if he doesn’t have manners.
First, he didn’t answer the door. And now, he didn’t reply to my greeting. The first thing he could say was: make me some coffee. Geez! Do I look like a coffee maker to him, huh?
I wish I could say all these thoughts to him.
“Okay, sir” I replied humbly and went for the kitchen.
At least, I’m sure of making coffee.
I heated some water, took the cocoa, put some milk and stirred.
Then, I poured in the water afterwards and tasted it.
Hmm. Creamy and perfect.
I smiled as I put it on a small tray and returned to the room with it.
Huh? Is he going out? He looked fully dressed up.
“I’m done” I said calmly as I held out the tray to him and he collected it from me.
He took a sip and the expression on his face meant it was okay.
He gulped it down without saying a word – even as it was steaming hot.
“I’m off for a meeting. And I need you to clean up the room before I’m back. Make sure you stay here and don’t go anywhere till I’m back” he stated coldly and stood up and I collected the tray from him.
I watched him as he walked to the door which opened on its own when he’d gotten close. As soon as the door was opened, I spotted his grumpy guards standing outside.
They shut me a glare before the door finally closed up.
Hmm. What meeting are they having anyway? It’s probably with the rest of the directors.
I sighed and set out to work immediately.
I dressed the bed, mopped the floor, washed the dishes and made everywhere sparklingly neat.
G0sh! Something I couldn’t do for mum.
When I was done, I looked through the window to see if he was on his way back, but there was nothing.
So, what am I to do now? Just sit and wait? Wait for the king??
I rolled my eyes and sat on the bed and the soft feeling on my ass reminded me of how I’d slept on it yesterday. The feeling was priceless.
I smiled and spread my arms on it.
Hmm. Seems I’m hungry.
G0sh! What would I eat, huh?
Mr grumpy has asked me
not to leave the room. And I don’t know if he’d be angry if I make something for myself in the kitchen. But I was damn hungry.
I yawned and my eyes caught the sight of the drawing board.
Hmm. There was a drawing of a car on it and it was so beautiful. He really loves painting, huh?
I felt like exploring the room but suddenly restricted myself.
How am I sure there isn’t a camera around? What if he adds to my punishment??
Geez! I guess I just have to be careful. I wouldn’t want to anger the gods any further.
After sitting for a long time, I decided to rest my back a bit and I laid on the bed and slept off
I yawned and turned on the bed and finally opened my eyes.
Hmm. That was a nice rest, I guess.
G0sh! It seems my hunger’s just increased. I wonder how long I’ve been sleeping.
I heard a strange sound in the room and lifted my head to have a look.
Miquel is back!!
I gasped and jumped out of the bed like a fly.
When did he return???
He was facing the table, pouring himself a drink and only turned slightly to spare me a stare.
“S…s…sir. I didn’t know you were back”,I stuttered and licked my lips.
He didn’t say a word as he gulped from his wine and I checked the wall clock.
How long have I been sleeping??? What the….h*ell???
“Today’s your birthday, right?” He asked and I drifted my eyes to him immediately.
Huh? Did he just….
“Y….Yes, sir” I replied and lowered my gaze to the floor.
Why’s he really asking that?
He gulped all of the wine and dropped the empty glass on the table.
“Come along with the bag” he said and started walking away and I looked at him, confused.
I looked around and saw the bag he was referring to.
Oh! Are we going to the gym again?
I picked it up and trialed behind him as we walked out of the room.
We left the building and continued walking till we got to the garage.
Surprisingly, he approached a red flashy car and opened the door.
“Get in” he stated coldly and I flinched.
Huh??? What’s he talking about??
“S…s..sir?” I faltered helplessly.
“Are we going out?”
“Of course. What else does it seem like?” He asked with his arms apart and my curiosity increased.
Where the h*ell are we going???
“B…but the rules…I thought we weren’t….”
“Get into the car, Cali” he cut me off and took the driver’s seat, shutting the door.
Oh my God!! Where the h*ell are we going???
I thought we weren’t supposed to leave the institute??
I felt so scared – remembering what had happened the last time I left.
He stared at me from the driver’s seat and taking a nervous gulp, I went ahead to join him in the car.
