Chapter 9 - Annoying
[ Amnesia - 5 Second of Summer ]
That night, I just watching a random show on television and then my phone buzz. It's Parrish and I open it to read.
'Hey didn't find you anywhere in the office. Are you okay?'
'Yeah, just my body doesn't feel well this morning. Sorry, I forgot to tell you,
'Are you okay now?'
'I will feel better if you bring me ice cream, dough and cookies. ;-)'
'Hah! Now I know you already alright. Go and buy on your own lazy ass. :p.'
'You're the lazy ass. :3'
Then I heard a knock on my door. I put my phone on the sofa and walk to open the door. It reveals Parrish with a plastic bag and I can see it's the ice cream. "No way. You didn't go and really bought it, don't you? I was just kidding why are you taking that serious gosh." He grins at me.
"Are gonna let me stand here and let the ice cream melt? Or you want to let me in and we can eat it together." I smile and move aside to let him in. I close the door and go to the kitchen to take the spoon.
"You're seriously the best person I know here," I said and take one of the ice cream.
"Why only the best person you know here? Why not the best friend you've ever met?" He pouted his mouth and I chuckle.
"Nah because I have that one back in LA. She's always the best friend I've ever met. You can't beat her.." He nodded his head and we watch the tv show together while eating our ice cream. To be honest, if this man beside me not gay, I would totally go for him if he asks me to go out with him. He looks like a celebrity with his sharp jaw, dirty blond hair, pink lips, also grey eyes. I continue to eat my ice cream and just laugh with Parrish over stupid things.
We just talk, laugh and sometimes being emotional until we didn't realize that it's already past midnight and we both have to go to work tomorrow. "It's so nice to spend my night with someone like you, crazy and interesting girl." He said.
"Well me too and you crazy too. So I'll see you tomorrow not tomorrow actually it in a few more hours. Whatever bye." We bid our goodbyes and then I throw the ice cream into the bin and make my way to bed after do my night routine of course. Such a long day.
I groan when I hear my phone ring. "Oh gosh, who's calling me early in the morning?" I grab my phone on the on the nightstand and answer without a look at the caller. "What?" I ask in an angry tone.
"I think that's not the good way to greet your boss, Ms. Morris." My eyes immediately widen and now I'm completely awake. I look at the phone and it's unknown number before I put it back near my ear.
"B-boss?" I ask.
"Did you hit your head somewhere hard yesterday until you forgot your boss?" Wait his voice... Sounds familiar. It's not Mr. Gerald but oh gosh not again.
"I-I'm sorry, Mr. Sanchez but why are you calling me so early. And also how did you get my number?" I ask.
"Early in the morning! You better come to the office as soon as you can before I fired you!" He shouted in the phone makes me startled. I immediately throw my phone on the bed and run to the bathroom to take a shower. "Arghhh its cold!" I scream and then I brush my teeth and soap my body. I grab a towel and wipe my body before getting out.
"What clothes? No no no no not this no. Whatever I just pick anything random then." I end up wearing a white dress that kind of tight but not too tight. Then I quickly make my hair and all before left my house and running out of the building as fast as I can and this time I'm not getting a breakfast because I don't want to get fired.
I arrive at my floor I guess in about I don't know but I think that's the fastest I can get here. I dashed straight to my room and then when I open it, I see Mr. Joseph with his pissed expression. "I'm so so sorry about being late. I swear that I already set the alarm last night but I don't understand why I didn't hear it. Please don't fire me." I stand in front of him and he looks at me with his scary eyes. Even though I hate him because he's too picky, but I still need to learn to accept him as my boss if I love my job.
"I can let you go if you have lunch with me today." I look at him disbelief but then I think if I do not agree with it, I might lose my job.
"Alright then. I'll go with you but let me inform my friend first." He smirks at me and then leaves the room. I sighed and take my phone to call Parrish.
"Hello, Thea. Why?" He answers.
"I can't go lunch with you today.."
"Because I need to go out and eat lunch with Mr. Sanchez." I reply.
"So I'll be just eating lunch at the cafeteria then. Oh by the way, why suddenly you want to have lunch with him? Are you two... You know together or something? Hmmm?"
"Don't ever think that can you. It just we have to umm discuss the project that's it. Okay then go and continue your work. Bye."
"Bye then." With that, we ended the call and I look at the time and it's already near lunchtime. I just walk to my chair and when I'm about to sit, the door open by the devil himself.
"Let's go." That's all he said and wait for me at the door frame. Actually, that's a good thing to know that I don't have to pay for lunch because he will pay for it. I save my money then. I grab my handbag and walk out. We walk together to the lift and of course, other people look at us no us actually they look at me. They must be weird why I walk this hot boss. Well because I'm a lucky woman.
When we already arrive at the lobby, I see his Black Jaguar that I've been dying to ride it. Am I really gonna ride that awesome car?! Oh my god, I can't believe it. He is a gentleman and opens the door for me. I feel so awkward now. Me and him being alone in the car. As soon as I get in, he walks to his side too. "What do you like to eat?" He asks me after he starts the engine.
"Ummm actually I eat everything. So I don't have a favorite food because whenever I see food I eat it." I said and that's the real fact. Why you need to choose one food when you have thousands of variety of food that you can eat. He starts to drive and I just enjoy my time in this awesome and cool car even though it's kind of awkward.
After a few minutes, he finally parked his car and I look around. I think this is not the place that I know. I have never been here before. I get out of the car and he suddenly wraps his hand around my waist. Actually, not my waist it's my lower back. "What are you doing? Let go." I said.
"Didn't all woman like when the man does that to them especially when that man is handsome like me?" I look at him in disguise and move his hand then walk into the restaurant. I stop in front of the counter and wait for Joseph to get in.
"Good afternoon. Do you have any reservations?" The girl at the counter asks Joseph and I see her wink and him. He must smirk at her. Eww.
"Yes, it's under Joseph Sanchez." The girl completely ignores me and just look at Joseph. Ugh. "This is your table. Here's the menu." I take a seat and open the menu. My eyes almost fall out when I see the price. It's so freaking expensive. Who pays 5 dollars for only sky water?
"Are you ready to order yet?" The same girl comes again. This girl really makes me want to slap her face for doing that annoying face when she looks at me.
"Give me grilled chicken and red wine. How about you? What do you want?" Joseph asks me and I look at him while smiling. "Make it two both of it." He said and then the girl leave.
"Next time, don't wear that kind of dress to the office or whatever you go." He commanded. I look at the dress and raise my eyebrows.
"What's wrong with this dress? It's fine though." I said to him.
"Don't you see around you? All men's eyes in here totally ogling at you." I look around and he's right but that's only like two or three people looking at me not all.
"So what if there's looking at me? I'm single by the way. Maybe I can get one soon if I dress like this."
"Don't make me drag you out from here and just eat at the office, Thea." He said in a threatening voice. What is wrong with him? Why does he need to care about my look? He's so annoying. Just when I want to reply to him, the food coming. I see the waitress slip a small piece of paper under Joseph's glass and then walk away. That's must be her number. We start to eat our food and we eat in silence until we're all done. Joseph for it and we walk together to his car.
It only takes a few minutes to get back to the company. "You hear me, Thea, next time don't wear this dress or another dress like this." He said when we waiting for the lift.
"Why are caring about my look? Stop act like this, please. Besides, I saw a few employees wore a dress like this.."
"First, because I don't like men looking at you like they've undress you and second, this is a company, not a nightclub." He said and we get into the lift.
"If you wants to not wear this type of dress, why don't you warn them receptionist and the other employees first before you warn me." I get out after the door open and just walk into my room. I don't even glance at him.
Why does he need to be protective of me like that? That's kind of annoying...
