Chapter - 3 New Year Eve Invitation
I pulled the pillow and put it over my head to prevent some sound from the alarm. I am not a person who wakes up in one alarm. I tried to catch some sleep before I start my day, but seemed like someone does not want me to have my beauty sleep. I pulled the blanket away from me and went to freshen up. From the past few days, I received a few calls about the house and even interviewed a few. But the moment I looked at them or talk to them, I found it off. Most of them were men’s. One look and I can tell them they were assholes. Few tried to flirt with me during the interview; I just smiled at them and mentally curse Alex for this stupid idea.
Today is New Year Eve and the day that everyone looks forwards. Every year, Alex throw a party for the colleagues and celebrate the day. However, I never went to any of those parties. I didn’t lose my virginity and never know about it. Yes, I am 24 years old and a virgin.
I was preparing the contract for our new investor, Mr Dash McCarthy. He is a pretty cool old man and the owner of Novell Corporation.
I looked up and saw Alex standing by the door. He was wearing a beige colour suit with a white shirt. I must say he was looking handsome, he is getting a hand-full of girls tonight. I raised my brows and look at him. He walked in and closed the door. I looked at him with confusion. What the hell is he doing? He walked in and stopped right in front of me. I looked up in his eyes to read it but I failed. He lowed himself down and look at my eyes. It seems like the time has stopped. I felt as if I was out of oxygen. He moved his eyes on my lips and moved a bit forward.
" What are you doing?”, I asked him as generally as I could ask at that situation. He moved his head forward to my left ear and whispered, “What do you think I am doing?”
I moved my eyes to look at his eyes and saw him smirking at me. Then I realized that his lips were just a few inches away from mine. I pushed me away and went back to work. “Did you take any wrong medicine today? What’s wrong with you, Alex?” I asked him as calmly as I could. He is lucky that he is my boss as well as my best friend or else I would have slapped him right on his face.
He laughed as if I crack a joke. “You should have seen your face. God...you almost fall for it!” I glared at him and that was enough for him to shut his mouth up.
“Why are you here? Should you be preparing for the party?”, I asked him.
“That is exactly what I am doing right now.”
“What do you mean?” I looked at him in confusion.
“Mr Dash McCarthy is coming at the party with his sons; Micheal McCarthy and Daniel McCarthy. So I need you there.” He just replied to me with a straight look.
“You know it; I don’t attend this type of gatherings. Moreover, isn't it in a club?”
"No. I mean it was but I changed it in the Royal Mansion." I just look at him as if he has ten heads all a sudden. "Come on. He is very important for our company. He especially asked me about you to be there.” I know he is very important, but I don’t want to go there.
“I don’t have any option, do I?"
"No. This time you have to attend it. Finally, the moment I was looking for."
I raised my brows at him and growled.
"Fine. But what about the dress? I am not going with these clothes and I don't think I have time to go shopping and get ready."
"Oh! Don't worry. I brought a dress for you. Wait a minute." He went out for a second and come back with shopping bags in his hands. I just looked at him at surprised. He was so confident about this. He throws me the bags, "I am waiting. One hour."
I looked at him as he walked out of the office. I opened the bag and pull out the dress. It's was a nude peach coloured bodysuit. I went to the bathroom and took a shower to calm myself down. I was surprised that the dress suits me so well. The perfect size! The bodysuit hugs my curves so well. I took out the earrings and heels and wore that. Honestly, I don't prefer much makeup so I applied some face powder, mascara and matching lipstick. I glared at the mirror and smiled.
"Savannah, are you done?"
I rolled my eyes and replied, "Coming."
I just hope the night spends well. It is my first party of the company. Alex owes me a big time. I walked towards the door and opened it.
Love is Hopeless. Sometimes it is so hard to find to the soulmate that petting a shark seems like an easy task; being single seems easier than unrequited love.
