In the office is the guy who got me fired yesterday seated majestically and pressing his phone as if he owned the place. He was so engrossed in whatever he was doing on his phone that he didn't notice that someone already came in.

He finally looked up and my breath somehow got caught up in my throat that I momentarily forgot how to breath. He had dirty blonde hair,bushy eyebrows,hazel eyes with gray flecks,pointed nose,small pink lips and neatly trimmed beard.

"Are you done checking me out?" He asked,a smug look on his face. The moment he asked that question I snapped out of the daze I was in. His eyes was raking all over my body. I cleared my throat and he instantly looks up at my face.

"You!!!" He shouted. A look of familiarity taking over his features and then anger completely took over and his eye color seemed to darken,if that is possible.

"I'm sorry,do I know you?" I asked in pretense.

"Aren't you the bitch that kicked my dick the other day?" He replied more like a sentence than a question.

"Oh right I'm the one. What are you gonna do?" I asked. Immediately I said that I noticed a mischievous glint in his hazel eyes.

"Whatever. What are you doing here?" He asked waving off the earlier topic.

"I'm here for the interview and I didn't prepare to meet an asshole here. By the way where is the interviewer?" I asked rudely.

"Isn't it obvious I'm the interviewer and owner of this amazing company." He stated arrogantly. The moment he said that it was as if the air conditioner in the room stopped working and my body felt hot. If he's the boss then I'm never gonna get this job and it's somehow my only hope to get the money to treat mom without working for a long period of time maybe If I try to act polite and apologetic I might get this job.

"I'm sorry about the other day." I said mustering my best apologetic voice. He looked taken aback for some seconds before his face became expressionless.

"Wow look at the iron lady looking sorry." He said in mockery.

"Can we just forget about that day and interview me or send me out of here." I said in tiredness.

"Well I could send you out of here but let me take a look at your credentials since you are the only one that came in here dressed decently and not trying to seduce me." He muttered.

I reached into my handbag and handed my credentials to him and remained standing taking in his expression as he glanced through my credentials.

"I know I'm hot but are you going to keep staring at me or are you going to take a seat." He stated arrogantly without looking at me. I cleared my throat awkwardly before sitting on the seat opposite the one he's sitting on which is divided by a polished mahogany desk. He finally looked up at me with an unreadable expression on his face.

"Well you didn't graduate from the university but your college result was quite impressive so I'm gonna give you a chance to prove yourself worthy of being my personal assistant." He stated professionally. Its surprising how he can change his personality in a matter of seconds. I nodded my head and kept a straight face but I was dancing inside. If I'm able to keep this job I'll have enough money to treat mom in few months.

"You are to resume work by 8:00 a.m tomorrow morning and failure to do so I might fire you or punish you. Let me also sound this warning to your hearing anytime I ask you a question you reply with 'Yes Sir' or 'Yes Mr Adrian' instead of nodding your head like a convulsed lizard. Am I clear?" He stated.

"Yes Mr Adrian." I replied.

"On your way out you'll meet my secretary tell him I told you that you should collect my schedule from him and you should study it before coming here tomorrow morning because any single mistake van get you fired. Am I clear?" He asked a taunting smirk forming on his face which I wish I could wipe off.

"Yes sir." I grumbled.

"Hey. You don't talk to me like that. Am I clear?" He taunted.

"Yes sir. Happy now?" I asked sneering.

"Of course." He replied with a satisfied smirk on his face.

He picked up the telephone on the desk and dialed a number and spoke some words into it. In few minutes a young man who would me at least 5.8ft tall with brown hair and brown eyes came in.

"You sent for me sir." He said politely.

"Yes I did. Tell the other people waiting to be interviewed that I already picked the one I want and give Miss Brianna my schedule on her way out." He stated.

"Yes sir." He replied calmly and turned towards the door before walking out to carry out the orders given to him.

I turned back towards the 'boss' to find him staring at me.

"I look forward to working with you Miss Brianna." He stated stretching forth his hand to me for an handshake. I couldn't help but notice a mischievous glint in his eyes which made me shiver slightly and I also found him hiring me a little bit suspicious but I waved it off immediately cos I'll endure anything just for the money.

"Same here Mr Adrian." I replied shaking his hand with my own which looked small compared to his. Immediately our hands touch I felt sparks working up my body and I shivered slightly and I guess he felt it too because he suddenly pulled his hand away

"Well you can go. We shall meet tomorrow." He stated. I got up from the chair I was sitting on before walking towards the door. I took a final glance at him then walked out of the office. I was met with the man who I now know as the secretary just finished addressing the people.

"I'm sure she slept with him to get this job." One said.

"Uhh she's so bitchy." Another stated.

"I thought I was finally gonna have the chance to be close to Adrian." A lady said from amongst the crowd already moving out of the place. Different comments were being thrown at me while some of them were looking at me with hateful glares. Some even looked sad and gloomy.I went to meet the secretary and stood in front of him.

"Hi I'm Brianna,Mr Adrian told me to collect his schedule from you." I said to him.

"Oh yeah. Follow me to my office let me get it for you." He replied already turning towards the direction of his office. I followed him to his office and stayed outside for him to get it. Few minutes later,he came out and gave it to me.

"Thanks. You haven't told me your name." I stated.

"Oh sorry I'm Andrew by name." He said.

"OK bye." I replied and turned towards the direction of the elevator that will take me to the first floor.


I smirked evilly as I watched her walk out of the office. She won't know what hit her because I will frustrate her life she won't have any choice than to quit………
