“Hey, are you- I couldn’t complete after seeing blood on his shirt.
Oh, my god he’s... Shot
I opened my eyes with a jolt and got up instantly. Breathing heavily, I wipe off the sweat with the help of the back of my palm.
Again I again had this dream, despite how much I try my past never leaves me.
“I told you both Charlotte, the end won’t be good,” He says weakly.
His word reverberated in my mind and made me both regret and sad.
Breath in and breath out, Janet, breath in and breath out, calm down and relax
“If I’ll get a single scratch on any part of my body, I swear I’ll kill you for sure, Ethan Williams”.
“You won’t get the slightest scar, I promise” He assures smiling, placing his hand on mine.
"Okay, now that’s clutch and that’s gear. Depress the clutch and shift into first gear...
I did as he told and started it up, it roared and made my heart to beat rapidly. Driving a motorbike always been my biggest fear.
Actually, the only fear
Ethan was behind me but still, I’m freaking because I’m a girl who loves her beauty.
“Ready?” He asked. I didn’t reply just looking at the way straight “I’m with you okay, I’m always with you... His soft word made me look at him. “Now leave it” he adds, sucking a deep breath I leave the clutch.
Suddenly my throat dried. Tucking the strands behind my ear, I looked beside, turned the lamp on, filled a glass of water, and downed it in one gulp. Putting off the glass back to its place, I brushed my fingers through my dark brown hair and glanced at the table watch; it was 4 am.
Jumping out of the bed, I walked to the bathroom and washed my face over and over again, trying to wash out the dream.
"I’m always with you, ALWAYS”
Shaking my head to throw away his thoughts I again splash water on my face.
I came out of the bathroom and looked out the window of my third-floor apartment. It was still dark. A normal bustle of traffic outside, despite how ungodly it is.
New York really is the city that never sleeps.
When I was about to turn I spotted Sam’s car in the parking lot. Smirking at my new naughty thought I turned and glanced at the wall clock; It was 4: 10 o’clock, dragging myself out of my bedroom to the hallway I halted in the kitchen. Filing a large mug with cold water, I tiptoed to Vero’s bedroom.
Watching her sleeping open-mouthed is quite funny for me but right now I’m here to ruin her beautiful ongoing dream. Her boyfriend beside her was snoring but, she doesn’t seem to bother by this even they’re cuddling in each other peacefully.
Smirking evilly I lift the mug and emptied it on both of them.
“Shit! what the fuck was this Janet?” They both spokes unitedly.
A warning, that if you dare to return after 2 o’clock ever again then I’m gonna tell Mom and Dad about your night outs” I say by crossing my hands over my chest “And you?” I raised my index finger on Sam “Never dare to keep her out with you till 2 o’clock, otherwise, I will make you sleep out there with only underwear on your body”.
“Don’t shout at him Janet, It was my fault I only insisted on staying a little more”.
“You were the one?” She nods ” Fine, get up and clean the house” I command.
“You heard right babes get up and clean every corner of the house,” I say by pulling the blanket off.
“But, why?“ She cried, pulling the blanket upward.
“You stay out of the house overnights thinking that no matter how much you stay out there, you will get peaceful periods of sleep at home?” I took a mini-break before speaking again “With this, you would never stay out”.
“Janet, please she’s hell tired,” he defends. My skin-piercing gaze met his instantly and I know he has already regretted imploring.
“You will do the basement” That was all I said.
“What?” His expressions turned pale “Uhm (clearing throat) Oh, yeah! I forgot Dad must be expecting me home” He says scared.
“Bathroom too,” I said, narrowing my eyes.
“Janet, this isn’t done, we aren’t doing anything,” She spoke.
“Ok, then let me tell mom about your so-called boyfriend and night outs” I threatened, she stares at me I stare at her too meantime Sam, gave up and dragged himself out of the bed with a scoff.
“Should I bring my phone here?” I threat, she grunts before stepping down.
“It’s the punishment of waking me up till 2 am in your wait”.
“Still hate you!” She shouts at a distance.
The high pitched annoyance of my alarm clock jolts me awake, With a straddled gasp I slam my palm on it frantically to turn it off.
Time for breakfast!!!
Getting up from the deep slumber I headed to the bathroom, took a long leisurely bath, and set out towards the hallway. A smile captured my lips as I saw Vero on the couch with Sam in a very uncomfortable position on the couch.
Have I done the wrong thing to them???
Shaking my head, I went to my room and returned with two blankets. After covering both, I moved towards the kitchen.
A few minutes later my breakfast was ready, I had it with myself only. While now I’m looking through some more private companies where I can apply for personal assistant Ping! Pong!
My phone took my attention, I checked.
Dear Ms. Janet Reyes
We are very pleased to offer you the position of personal assistant with the CEO of Grey enterprises holding Inc. Please find the following confirmation of the specifics of your...
A happy smile captured my lips as I read my name...
It’s been 2 years since I’ve changed my identity and finally today I’m having a true feeling of being a common girl. I hope everything will go like today, I hope no one will found me here ever after.
It was 11 when I decided to make breakfast for them. Within minutes their breakfast was ready, after setting the dining table I left to wake them up.
Kneeling down on my knees I reach for him and shook him “Sam?... Sam?” I called, he opens his eyelids and instantly got up.
“I’ve made Bengals and pancakes, for breakfast. Good?” I told. He nods before stretching his muscles. “Now, go and get freshen up before everything gets cold,” I added before going towards Veronica.
“Did you put this on us?” He asked in his hoarse voice by showing the red blanket. I nod and got a warm smile in return.
“Vero? (She groaned) Vero? wake up! It’s already 11:30 in the morning” I say while shaking her lightly.
“Janet, we’ve done everything, Now what’s left?” She mumbled, snuggling with the blanket.
“Breakfast,” I said she opened her eyes and looked beside me for Sam “He’s getting fresh” I add. She sat up and looked at the blanket on her.
“Thanks, for this favor” She mocked. I chuckled at her taunt and then getting up I walked towards the kitchen.
“Well, I have good news for you,” I say in distance, she didn’t respond but I continued ” Mr. Grey has picked me for a personal assistant.”
“What?! Wow!! Oh my god, that’s so cool” She beamed before wrapping her arms around my body. These are the things I love about my sis, no matter how mad or upset she is with me, a piece of single good news can make her forget everything.
“When is your joining day?”. She questioned, beaming.
“Monday means the day after tomorrow” I answered, shrugging.
“Awesome! Now I want a big treat” As I hear her my smile flew away and eyes widened.
“Are you good? It’s just been some hours since you have returned from a party yet you asking for another” I say in disbelief.
She was about to say something but I continued “Let me remind you tomorrow’s Charlie’s birthday. Olivia called me yesterday to invite us all to the club, be ready by seven” She narrowed her eyes on me by crossing her hands over her chest. Staring at her for a while I realize I can’t win upon her. Raising my hands in surrender I agreed ” Fine! But not today”.
“How about the weekend?” She was quick to say, I nod with a bogus smile and she grinned before running to the dining table and I left to my room.
