(Ch. 2) The Encounter
I looked at him; No, I glared at that man expecting an apology from him as for bumping into me and spoiling my outfit. He glanced at me and then again went back to typing on his phone. My temper flared as I was waiting for that jerk face to apologize.
I promised myself if he did, I’ll go easy on him. If not, then I have other ways too. But by seeing his expressions, I could guess pretty well that this man had no intention of apologizing for his mistake.
What a Jerk!
“Oh my God! Emma! Are you alright?” Kate rushed towards me and taking my arms, she inspected me to see if there were any signs of injury, her eyes showing concern.
“Yeah, I think so,” I said while standing up and still glaring at his blue eyes. Kate stood beside me as she looked at me and than at that jerk.
“Well? Aren’t you going to say sorry?” He said in a prideful tune and my blood boiled to 100°c.
Sorry? To him?
Such an arrogant ass!
I’ve had enough of this arrogant man. How dare he say that? Doesn’t he know whose fault was that? He bumped into me, spilled my hot coffee on me, and now he has the nerve to say those words? Doesn’t this jerk had a bit sense of guiltiness for his act?
The nerve of this man...
“Hey! Look, idiot. It’s not my fault. It’s yours. You should be watching where you’re going. Are these your eyes or buttons?”
I batted my eyelashes and giving him a scornful smile, I glared at him while pointing at his eyes. This earned his attention and placing his phone in the back pocket of his pants. He leaned against the pole in front of our shop. Folding his arms over his chest, a smirk took its place on his lips.
“Sweetheart! Do you really think I would apologize?” His eyes looking at me and for the moment I felt those blue deep eyes raking on my body as my body shivered.
I believe what made me shivered was not his eyes but his word.
Sweetheart? My fucking foot!
“You should sweetheart! Because you are the one who bumped into me and because of you, my clothes are all dirty now! You should be the one apologizing me! Not the other way around.” I yelled at him using his word sweetheart in a mocking way. He looked at me surprised as his eyes widen with...
I was insulting this guy here and all he was amused?
Such a creep!
“Why would I apologize?” His face turned into a cold expression this time as he straightened himself but a slight smirk was still on his thin lips.
Damn! I wanna make his smirk go away with my smiling punch.
“I’ve already told you if you’ve noticed.” I shot back at him and gave him a death glare.
I hate such arrogant, proud men! Who they think they are? Gods of the world?
“You’re asking me to apologize?” He stared at me shocked while emphasizing word me like if he had heard the word sorry for the first time. His cold stare was burning in my eyes. Our eyes staring into each other’s and it felt like a staring competition was being held and the winner would have his name noted in the Guineas World Record.
“Bingo! Yes, mister. Am I talking to anyone else here?” I rolled my eyes while indicating to the area around him giving him a good hint who I was referring to.
“Emma, calm down.” Kate tried to calm me down but it was of no use. I had almost forgotten that she was beside me and enjoying our encounter.
“Kate, could you please leave us alone for a minute? I am going to teach him some manners,” I said through gritted teeth as she held my arm.
“Emma, please. Don’t pick a fight here,” I forced a smile and held her hand.
The players have already left the start line...
The fight have already started...
“Oh no. Not at all... Just go now.” I said to her with a half lie. Apparently, she was convinced and went inside but not before giving me a bit suspicious look. I waved her bye and sighing, I turned my attention to my unfinished business.
Ok! Now, Back to that jerk!
“So, you were going to teach me some manners?”
Before I could say something, he said it with a bigger smirk this time.
Damn! How much I want to wipe this crap smirk of his!
“Oh... You don’t know any?” I mocked and flipping my ponytail back gave him a bitch expression this time.
If he’s acting like a bastard than why not deal him by acting a bitch?
“So that’s why you didn’t apologize? I see.” I said sarcastically whilst rolling my eyes as he chuckled making my anger to rise up even more.
Was he making fun of me?
Definitely in a need of learning some manners!
“Let me teach you some, you jerk!” I said while fisting my hand ready to hit him. I was going to throw a punch at him when he caught my hand in a swift movement.
What the fuck?
“Hey, Miss furious! Do you know who I am? If I were you, I wouldn’t be doing that to someone as handsome as me.” He smirked and folding my arm behind my back, he pulled me closer. His other hand wrapped around my waist as I let out a gasp when our bodies collided.
What the fucking damn hell!
“I don’t know, and I don’t care to know, and secondly, I am not you. So, let go off my hand so that I could punch your pretty face!” I said my voice laced with anger as I wriggled to free myself but in vain.
Damn! His grip is stronger!
“Are you saying I’m handsome? Thank you.” He said while that smirk still on his lips, making my blood boil and to reach its maximum limit.
I will kill this man!
“You-” I was cut off by a car’s honk from behind him. He and I looked at the same time and saw a black Audi parked there. A driver came rushing to him to escort him. He bow his head and my eyes widen at the respect and for this jerk?
What was he? A prince of Britain?
What’s next? A group of ten bodyguards?
“Looks like my ride is here,” He let go off my hand and went towards the car leaving me in between my anger and confusion. The driver pulled open the door for him and before sitting in, he looked at me for the one last time.
“Till later...” He paused and then winked at me.
“Emma.” And then he said my full name making my eyes go wide open.
I stood there shocked at what just happened while his car drove away.
How did he know my name? And his cocky behavior! I was so gonna kill him the next time I see him. I hate him so much.
I went into the cafe and asked Kate to make another cup of Americano for me. I need something to cool my self down. And the hot coffee is the best remedy for my hot temper.
“So, what happened after I left?” Kate asked with interest while making my coffee.
“Nah... Nothing. I am so gonna kill him. I hate him.” I muttered through gritted teeth whilst my mind imagining the ways to kill him.
“Well. He was quite handsome and sexy and-”
“Woah! Hold your horses! Whose side are you? Mine or that jerk’s?” I retorted as I raised my hands and looked at her suspiciously. She bit her inner cheek and looked at me like a 5-year-old kid, smiling sheepishly.
“Sorry... Here you go.” She handed me my cup and I took it.
“Thank you. Bye, see you tomorrow.”
“Bye. See ya.”
I carried my cup and went to the bus station. My top was brown so the coffee wasn’t very visible on it. I sat in the first seat of the bus and drank my coffee. After twenty minutes, I finally reached my apartment. Heading to my washroom, I took a bath and changed into my night pyjamas. Dropping my tired body on bed, I started thinking about that incident.
What a day...
Definitely! 100% sure. One heck of a bad day!
That jerk completely ruined my mood and energy... I hate him from the bottom of my heart.
I was in a middle of cursing that jerk when I heard the front door open, thinking it must be Alice. She loved shopping and was crazy for it. She loved it so much, that she spends most of her time shopping.
“Emma! Are you home?” She shouted from the living room.
“Hey, where were you? Why didn’t you wake me up today? I was late again.” I fired at her as soon as she entered my room.
“Sorry. I was in a hurry today. I just got a message from my employer that I would be paid for the few days I have worked there, so I went there. Sorry.” She apologized with a smile.
Alice was a girl with a body having curves all over the right places and with a height of 5 foot 7 inches, she could be a pretty great model. She had curly blonde hairs and always had a big cheer up smile on her face. Positivity radiates from her entire existence and that’s the best thing I love about her.
“Fine.” I accepted her apology.
“So, are you free? Can we go shopping or something?” She asked me making me looked at her with my mouth open.
Was this girl serious?
“Alice! You just came home. Aren’t you tired? And the last time I went shopping with you, you spent 2 hours in one shop, and in the end, you bought only two dresses.” I reminded her the time when she was stuck in choosing between all the dresses. I swear, if she had the chance to buy the whole store’s stock, she might have bought it already.
“That wasn’t my fault! They were all so pretty. It was hard to choose...” She pouted like a child making me shook my head at her nonsense.
“Please, Em! Oh please... I am leaving tomorrow. So please come with me. I wanna hang out.” She said with puppy eyes and sighing, I gave in.
“How could I say no to that?”
“Yippie! Thanks, Em!” She hugged me as I hugged her back glad that she was happy.
“No thanks needed. Let’s go.”
“Uuuh... Emma?” Alice stopped me as her eye brows furrowed.
“What?” I looked at her sudden change in expression.
“Aren’t you going to change?”
She chuckled and I looked at my clothes and noticed I was still in my PJs.
“Oh! By the way, Do I have to? They are quite comfy.” I smirked as her eyes widen.
“Oh no! You are not going in that. No way!”
“OK! OK! I’ll change.” I chuckled and getting up went to change. I agreed to Alice to go for shopping and maybe...
By going out, I might forget about him.
