💋 TOXIC 💔
I got the job?
What the hell is happening? Am I being played or not.
“Sir, I don’t get what you’re trying to say. ”
I mutter and he chuckles.
“I see that you’re quite surprised you got the job. But I really find you quite interesting.
A woman who would slap Adrian Malik because he disrespected her and yet had the audacity to return back to him. I’m quite interested in that woman. ”
He smiles and I still can’t believe it.
“But I slapped you. ”
I say and he chuckles, shaking his head.
“I know and you’re not yet forgiven for that. ”
He frowns but my mind still can’t quite place what’s happening here.
“Why would you give me this job? I mean I slapped you. ”
Just say thank you!
My subconscious snaps at me and I gulp in.
It’s just so unbelievable that he would give me this job right now.
I had thought he wanted to punish me which is why he asked me to come here but this is really.. Surprising.
“I know miss Brown. Will you take a seat please? ”
He says and I nod before sitting down across from him.
“Ryder, what do you want? Why are you here? ”
He takes his gaze to the tattooed guy whom I’m totally forgot he’s still here.
“I was just here to trouble you but this lady here is quite interesting to me too. ”
He smirks at me and I look away.
I don’t know why but I don’t want to look into those dark eyes of his.
“You’re insane. ”
Boss chuckles. He’s my boss now since I actually got the job which is still a shock to me.
“Shut up you motherfucker. Are you gonna deny you didn’t miss me? ”
Ryder laughs and I scrunch my nose together.
He uses fowl language just too much.
I wonder who he is to Mr Malik.
I wonder how that is your business.
My inner woman jumps in and I mentally roll my eyes.
I was just curious.
“You can see I’m quite busy. Go and come back later. ”
Mr Malik says turning his gaze back to me.
“I was actually thinking of staying. You know but I’m gonna leave you to your interesting lady. ”
He winks at me before walking out of the office.
“Sorry about him. ”
He smiles at me and I shake my head.
“It’s nothing sir. ”
I drum my fingers against my thighs as he stares at me.
“Every woman always fall in that trap. How did you managed to escape”
He raises his brows at me and I don’t even know what he’s talking about.
“What trap? ”
I reply and he smile as realization hits me.
“Oh, that. Was it a trap? ”
What kind of a trap is asking a lady the benefit she would be to you before giving her a job.
“Yes, more like a test. I don’t want a employer that would be gawking all over or trying to seduce me which is what everyone does and that pisses me off.
You’re the second one that has passed that test so far ”
Who is the first one?
I wanted to ask.
Jesus Roxanne. Just quit being a little nosey thing, would you?
I can feel my subconscious scolding me again.
What? I was just curious.
“So you would be offered the position of being my personal assistant. I think you know what to do, right? ”
I nod and he smiles.
“You will be starting tomorrow coming exactly by eight and leaving by five.
Your monthly payment would be sixty thousand bucks. Is that alright with you? ”
What? Of course it’s alright with me. That’s huge.
“Yes sir. Thank you. ”
I smile and he nods.
“I hope you don’t make me regret working with you Roxanne. ”
He has a frown on as he speaks and i shake my head.
“Never! I promise it would be a pleasure working with me. ”
I grin and he shakes his head before dismissing me.
I bow and walk out of the office happily.
I can’t believe i got the job. Oh my god! I got the job.
I’m glad I came back, what would have happened if I didn’t?
Oh I don’t even want to think about that. I got the job!
I hear someone call my name and I turn back to see Jason walking up to me.
“Hey jax. ”
I smile at him and he pecks my cheeks.
“I thought you said you lost the job. I saw you coming out of the building. ”
“Oh yes. I was asked to come back today and I did, luckily I did got the job. ”
I grin as I tell him and he hugs me.
“I’m so proud of you Roxy. So… ”
He starts rubbing the back of his neck. He looks so cute being nervous.
I ask, even though I know what he wants to talk about. I love seeing people nervous, weird right?
“About that thing I asked. ”
He rubs his palm together gazing at me.
“What thing? ”
I furrows my brows and he sighs.
He groans, a frown taking over his nervous features and I chuckle.
He’s so adorable.
“You look so cute, you know”
I laugh and he rolls his eyes at me.
“I will go on a date with you Jason but just not today. I need to prepare for my first day at work tomorrow.
Maybe we can get coffee later? ”
I raise my brows and he grins.
“Yes. Of course I would love to. Thank you so much rox. ”
I smile and nod.
“I will call you. ”
I nod again and he kiss my cheek before I cross the road and hail a cab.
I can’t wait to start preparing.
I must iron my clothes.
Pack things I need for office.
Pick out good clothes and maybe even extra in case first one gets ruined.
I must set the alarm so I won’t be late and I should probably tell mom to prepare a light food for tomorrow and..
Oh I just can’t wait for my first day at work.
I just hope it goes well.
