Chapter 8 - Saved by him
[ Paris - Chainsmokers ]
I and Parrish became so close after we first met. It's fun even though I only have one friend, Parrish but he's always been with me and company me wherever I go. Live in Paris is such a good thing because even though I still don't know how to speak French, but this city is so beautiful and I saw so many sweet couples here. How I wish to be like one of them.
"Ms. Morris, come and meet me at the office now." Mr. Gerald calls our office telephone and I immediately stand up to go to his room. I knock then open the door.
"Ye-" I stop when I saw Joseph sit on the chair in front of Mr. Gerald. Well, here we go again.
"Mr. Sanchez wants to meet you that's why I called you here." Ugh But I don't want to meet him. I fake smile at him.
"We will discuss this at my office. Let's go." Wait for what? He has his own room here? Of course, has it he's the boss after all. Stupid. I follow him to his room which is on the same floor but a bit far from everyone else. We stop at the big oak door. Oh, this is his room, I thought a meeting room. I always look at this room as I thought a meeting room but also sometimes a bit weird because I saw no one go or out of it. It his room no wonder. He opens the door and lets me get in first. What a gentleman. As soon as I get in, I look around his office room and this is so beautiful. It has a huge window glass that can see the breathtaking view.
"Sit." that's all he said and I just walk to the chair across him and take a sit. "So did you already finish your design?" He asks and I look at his disbelief. Did he just want to talk to me about this?
"Yes sir, I already finish like sixteen design. Do you want to see it now? I can bring them and let you see it." I said to him.
"I don't want to see it now but you can put on my desk here before I come. That's it. You can dismiss now." I nod my head and leave the office. I never know I keep holding my breath until I'm out from that room.
"What's wrong with that face girl?" Parish asks me when both of us on our way to having lunch.
"Nothing I'm just stressing out," I reply.
"About Mr. Sanchez?"
"Why I should be stressing out about him though?"
"Who knows. Or maybe your heart already falling for his charm." He wriggles his eyebrows and I hit his arm. "Ow! What's that for?"
"Because you're being annoying." We said and then get to the small cafe. The smell of coffee gets into my nose, I love this atmosphere. Both of us take a seat on the empty table near the corner and then order our food.
I am still in my office because Mr. Sanchez wants to see the design, I have to work overtime to make sure all of it is presentable and suit his taste. I look at my watch and it is already 9:10 pm. Oh gosh, it's late. I bet I'm the only person in this company now. Besides security of course.
I make my way to Joseph's room and put the design on his desk then walk out. I take my handbag also my phone and look around to see if I may leave my things here again then when it's nothing, I turn off the light and left the room It's so dark because all the light already off except the light at the lift.
I get into the lift and press L. Then I hear like thunder outside. Oh no, not now, please. "Okay relax Thea, you'll make it before it rains. Relax." I said to myself and when the door open I quickly walk out and walk as fast as I can before it rains.
On my way home, I hear a storm again and this time I really freaking out. Not because it's gonna rain actually but actually I have some sort of scared over the sound of thunder. I have bad memories of it and I don't want to remember it anyway.
Why do I feel it takes so long to arrive home? I practically running when I feel the water already hit my body. Please don't rain yet. Please!
I don't want to remember it. I don't want to remember it. Suddenly, The tears suddenly coming out from my eyes and rolling down my cheeks. My head feels so heavy all in a sudden and also the rain is getting heavier and I can't think straight now. I need to cross the road to get to the building. I look around and make sure there's no car and cross the road but then I hear a car honk.
I can't see anything because of the rain and also my head is so heavy now. Then I feel my body weak and the next thing I know I'm on the road laying down. I try to wake up but I can't. The rain is getting heavier and here I am already drenched and remembered about the bad memories that happened in rain like this. "Ms, are you okay?" I heard a man voice but I don't think I can open my eyes to the next thing I saw only a man come to me and then all black.
The next morning.
I wake with a very bad headache and I feel like I'm hungover now. Oh gosh, my head. I look around and see an unfamiliar room. There's a television in this room also a big window that has a white curtain cover it. The bed is big enough for three people or maybe four. The room looks so cozy and gorgeous. I can say who the one life here must have a good taste. I look at myself and see that I'm in a big shirt and also a boxer. Don't say that the man who saved me to change my clothes. Oh no. I get up from the bed to find my clothes but then the door opens and shows one and only Joseph Sanchez.
"I see that you're awake. Where are you going? Try to run away?" He said and sit on the bed looking at me.
"Why am I here?" I ask even though I already know the answer.
"You should be thankful that I'm the one who saves you when you unconscious on the road and in the rain." He answers.
"I need my clothes back so that I can go home. Oh! And... Did you the one who changed me?" I ask but in low tone feeling embarrassed about it.
"Yeah, I am but don't worry I'm not looking or try to take any advantage of you. I changed you in the dark and yeah." In the dark? That's mean he must... Oh no no no that's not.
"Can I have my clothes back?" I ask again.
"Why it is so hard to say thank you for once because if I'm not there, maybe you still there until now."
"Thank you, Mr. Sanchez," I said.
"That's what I like. Oh yeah, I also let you sleep on my bed in my room." His room? His house? Did I sleep on his bed? With him? No way...
"Oh-" He just walks past me without let me finish what I want to say and to go into his walk-in closet then he walks out with my clothes in his hand.
"Whatever. Change and leave." With that, he leaves the room and I go to the bathroom and not even want to take a shower here so I just undress and wear my clothes back. After I'm done, I walk out and see my handbag on the nightstand I grab it and then walk out from the room. At first, I am in awe when I see the design of his house. It's so pretty and he sure has a good taste in decorations.
Then I just walk down the stairs and see him sit on the couch with a laptop on his lap. He didn't even glance at me or maybe say something because the just busy with his laptop. I roll my eyes and press the lift. The lift opens immediately and I get in.
Why do I need to be saved by him yesterday? Why not anyone else? I walk out from the building and walk home. I guess I'm not going to work today because it's already late. So I decided to just go home and take a rest.
