(Ch. 28) Shopping with my Boss.
It’s been almost two hour since we were in this mall and in this mean time, we had gone to almost 10 shops and I had tried almost 8 dresses. I walked out of the trial room wearing a knee-length navy blue dress having spaghetti straps. It was a little too tight and I wasn’t much comfortable wearing it. I walked out of the trial room to see Edan sitting on the coach, busy on his phone. I cleared my throat to gain attention from him as he looked at me eyeing me up and down and then a smirk appeared on his lips.
“You look hot Emma,” he commented with a wide grin.
“Oh... Just shut up. You know I don’t do this shit. You had forced me to do so.” I rolled my eyes at him.
“And I’m glad I did...” he winked at me and I stuck my tongue out at him.
I walked back in and changed into my previous dress. As we had entered into the mall I asked him the reason for bringing me here. All he had to say was that I should at least have 5 signature outfits of the most famous designers of whole America. I protested but to no use... I asked the reason and he just smiled not answering. On pursuing he just replied saying as his PA I should look presentable and to not make a fool out of him. So, I was stuck with my dumbass boss now.
Jerk! Guess what! You already are a fool and you don’t need me to make you one.
I smiled proudly at me at my true words as I came out and went to the cashier and he paid for my 2nd dress.
“Edan... Stop it. I can buy it. I don’t want you to pay for it. You had already bought me one.”
Although the dress was expensive. Of course, it would be... Duh..!It’s a signature outfit after all. But still, I don’t want others to pay for me. I’m a kind of independent girl and I clearly don’t like the idea of other people paying for my things.
“Emma... We are not going over this again. I’m paying.” He stated firmly and took out his debit card.
“Now, are you shushing or I should kiss those lips to silent you down.” He smirked cutting my protest as the cashier smiled. These lines were enough to shut my mouth down but I did give him my rolling eyes.
Why he have to say that all the time to shut me down?
We went to another high-class shop and there too I tried four dresses and Edan picked the purple one which was quite tight, hugging my body and showing my curves. I loved it though it felt a little too revealing but Edan bought it despite my all protest.
“Come on, you look hot in it,” Edan said smiling at me making me frown.
I wasn’t much fond of shopping and had always tried to escape it but today Edan was forcing me to visit every shop. He was reminding me of Alice right now and I wanted to hit him hard but I kept myself composed.
We went to a small cafe in the mall and I ordered a cup of coffee to ease me up. Edan went to the washroom and I was seated alone at the table, sipping my coffee enjoying its flavor and aroma.
“Hey, Beautiful... Are you alone?” I turned my attention to a young man who had seated in front of me. He had blonde hairs and hazel eyes, a smirk plastered on his face.
Not with this crap...
“I don’t have time for your shits...so buzz off,” I said ignoring his stare and sipping my coffee.
“So, Feisty? I like it... So what’s your name beautiful.” He said with a chuckle and getting a little closer. Grabbing the shopping bags, I stood up and walked towards the exit to avoid any scene. I turned around to see the same stranger following me.
Seriously... What’s his problem?
“Hey, beautiful... At least give me your number,” he said with a chuckle and there I had enough. I spun around and death glared in his eyes.
“Can’t you understand a simple word, you a**whole. I said to buzz off or you will be sorry!” I yelled at him.
“Huh... I will be sorry?” He chuckled coming closer. He took me by my waist, holding me closer looking into my eyes and Now I had enough. I kicked him where the sun don’t shine and he groaned in pain releasing me.
“Suits you right,” I smirked at him.
“You f**cking whore...” He groaned in pain.
I smirked and turned around giving him my last disgusted glare. I walked towards a small gift shop that was just beside the cafe. I looked through it and found a beautiful necklace. It was a heart-shaped necklace with a small diamond in the center and I immediately fell in love with it. I looked at the price and my eyes widen at the amount. It was way too expensive. I still have to save money for my university and this necklace will cost me a fortune. With a disappointed face, I left the shop and as soon I did, someone pinned me in the wall. I looked up to see the same stranger whom I have kicked.
“LET ME GO!!” I yelled at him trying my best to free myself from his grip.
“You’re going to pay for what you did,” he smirked getting closer.
I aimed for the same spot where I had kicked before.
“Aah... Not this time beautiful.”
“Let me go... You son of a b**ch.” I spat on his face which made him more furious.
“Shut the f**ck up. You’re coming with me.”
Where the heck was Edan?
“Let her go.” I turned my head to see Edan. His fist clenched and jaw tightened.
“Mind your own business Man... I can handle my little girlfriend.”
I was mid-sentence when Edan punched him in the face causing him to fall on the floor. Edan took my hand and we went towards the exit of the mall. As we entered his car, he started the engine. His hands gripping the stirring wheel tightly.
“Aah... Edan?” I whispered seeing him this way. It was the second time I had seen him this furious.
“Aah... By the way. Thank You.” I whispered.
He nodded and the rest of the drive went silently as we both didn’t utter a single word. I was getting annoyed by this silence now but still I remained silent. As we stopped in front of my apartment, I decided to break the silence.
“Edan? Are you okay?” I whispered looking in his direction.
He nodded, still not saying a single word.
What was his problem?
“Aah... Do you want to come in, maybe grab a cup of coffee or juice?” I said getting out of the car but he simply shook his head still not uttering a word.
“Edan... Come on. Ease up a little.” I decided to cheer him up but no use.
“I’m fine... I’m just tired.” With that, he drove away leaving me in complete confusion.
