Jessica’s POV:

It was Sunday today, the day I would leave the home I have known forever to start a new life. I decided to leave a day before I started so that I had enough time to settle down in my new home.

As promised, I spent the last 3 days with my family enjoying the bit of time I had left with them before it was time to go. Mum took us out to eat, we went to a waterpark and SHOPPING! And believe it or not my brother refused to let me pay for anything and spent all his money on me. I know I sound really spoilt, but that is the truth. I am a spoilt child. Being the youngest has its perks.

I couldn’t ask for anything else, these last 3 days have been the best days of my life. I wish I didn’t have to leave but I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life depending on my family.

As I said I spent the last few days with my family, but on the second day we were interrupted by Adams driver. He had been sent over to give my new house key. He also told me that the suite needed nothing doing to it as it was already furnished and newly decorated. So all I had to do was move into it. I was also told that a driver would be sent to take me to my new place and when I tried to refuse, the driver played a voice message of Adam saying and I quote; “If you refuse my driver, I will personally drive down and shove your perky arse in my car and take you myself. And before you get excited let me tell you, if you do, do that I will make the 3 hour drive as painful as possible. And I’ll see you soon babe”

So as you can tell I didn’t really have a choice but to comply. If my dad found out about him, my trip to London would be permanently cancelled and I can’t risk that happening so guess who gets another point, my self- righteous, up himself, fucktard of a boss!

It finally came to the time for me to leave, and let me tell you it was not a sight to see. “awwh my baby’s leaving me. I love you so much, don’t forget me though and I want a call as soon as you get there.” Mum sobbed. I gave everyone a hug and made my way outside. The driver whose name I learnt was Grey, had already put my luggage in the boot and was waiting for me with the door open. I turned around and gave one last look to my family “I love you” I said and blew them a kiss. Once I sat in the car I was feeling extremely sad but at the same time I was extremely excited because I was finally going to meet the monster who has invaded my mind and I couldn’t wait for what came next.

Adam’s POV:

You know it’s at times like this when I wish I was not a rich kid who had been given everything on plate. My father always made us work for whatever it was we wanted but in the end we always got whatever it was. So I do know how to be patient, I know that if I am patient then my expectation of the thing will magnify. But this one thing I want cannot wait. I need her and I need her NOW!

The past few days have been hell. I know you are thinking ‘what an idiot’ ‘why is he pining over a girl he barely knows’. The truth is, I don’t know. I just have this intense connection with her. I can’t explain my feelings for her. It’s like when she is not there I forget how to breath.

Do you know how many times the boys have had to stop me from driving down to go and get her. They stopped counting after 10. But the wait is finally over. Today is the day she moves in next door to me, I can’t tell you how excited I am. I know I sound like a little boy who is high on sugar, and that is exactly what I am. I am 'high' on Jessica.

I couldn’t help myself but when she left I made 2 of my men follow her home and they have been watching over her for me. Sending me pictures of her going through her daily routine. I even sent my driver to pass her, her house key and sent a lovely little message from yours truly telling her what would happen if she were to defy my orders, and lets just say it worked perfectly. Call me a stalker if you want, but I don’t really care. I just had to make sure she was ok.

I waited and waited for her to show up, it was nearly lunch time. I kept looking at my phone, looking for a message from my driver. I told him to send me a message the second they got here. But nothing. I tried to push my attention to my work but I couldn’t, all my attention was focused on her. Her plump pink lips, the way her body felt against mine.


I picked my phone up and nearly fell out of my seat in excitement.

Mr Hughes we are 10 minutes away from the property.


I packed my things up and drove over to the suite. It was only a two minute drive from the office so I would reach there before she did.

Once I got to her suite, I looked around to make sure it had been decorated and furnished as I instructed, and I were satisfied with the way it looked. The black and white theme showcased through the whole room. The open planned kitchen was on the left of the room with a massive white Island in the middle with supporting black units. On the right of the room it had an edge gas fireplace with a 100 inch TV in the middle of the wall, with black velvet sofas surrounding it. It looked cosy as well as elegant. In the top centre of the room there was staircase entirely made of glass leading upstairs to two bedrooms, one for Jess and one being a spare room for when I need to sleep over. Not like I will really be using it because if I do stay over, I will be sleeping where ever she is.

I went to the kitchen and started making coffee. I took out the mugs and froze when I heard the door click. I spread my arms and placed them both on the worktop and in walked the the person who has been haunting my dreams the last couple of days, giving me sleepless nights. My beautiful girl.

I watched as she looked around the room in awe. How she didn't spot me as soon as she walked in, is something I do not know. She eventually looked my way and her jaw dropped and her eyes were wide.

I couldn't help the smirk that presented it's self on my face. She just stood staring at my face, not even blinking. "so are you going to come in or are you going to just stand and stare" I finished causing her to break out of her trance. "M..M.. Mr Hughes, what are you doing here" She said blushing.

Her reactions to my presence is just amazing. I don't even have to be stood next to her to get a reaction out of her. The tension levels in the room were plummeting. I stood up straight and walked around the counter.

I stalked my way over to her. As I got nearer she realised what was about to happen. She met my pace and copied me, but instead of walking towards me, she walked away. Little does she know I love a chase. I kept walking towards her and she reciprocated my movements. Until her back hit up against the wall. She broke eye contact realising her mistake. Before she could make a decision to run I fastened my pace and covered the gap that was between us.

I entrapped her between me and the wall by putting my hands on the side of her head. She gasped at our proximity. "Do you know how long I have been waiting for you? How much I craved you? Those beautiful lips of yours?" She shook her head biting her lip.

"wh.....what are doing?" she whispered as her breath escalated. She broke eye contact and looked anywhere but me. I moved one hand from the wall and placed it on her hip, slowly tightening my grip on her. I moved my other hand to her lip. I pulled it out from between her teeth and rubbed my thumb against it. "Baby, your all I have thought about in the last few days, do you really think I am going to let you go now that your in front of me?" I started moving my face closer but stopped when I heard her open her mouth. "I told you I'm not your baby, to you I am Miss Taylor and you Mr Hughes are being highly inappropriate" I was shocked by the sudden wave of courage and she used that moment to her advantage and slipped out of my grip and ran to the kitchen area.

I couldn't help the chuckle that escaped my lips. The game is on princess.
