TOXIC( Episode 06.)
I got the job? What the hell is happening? Am I being played or not.
"Sir, I don't get what you're trying to say.", I muttered and he chuckled.
"I see that you're quite surprised you got the job. But I really find you quite interesting.
A woman who would slap Adrian Malik because he disrespected her and yet had the audacity to return back to him. I'm quite interested in that woman."
He smiled and I still can't believe it.
"But I slapped you", I said and he chuckled, shaking his head.
"I know and you're not yet forgiven for that."
He frowned but my mind still can't quite place what's happening here.
"Why would you give me this job? I mean I slapped you." Just say thank you! My subconscious snapped at me and I gulped.
It's just so unbelievable that he would give me this job right now.
I had thought he wanted to punish me which is why he asked me to come here but this is really.. Surprising.
"I know miss Brown. Will you take a seat please?"
He said and I nodded before sitting down across from him.
"Ryder, what do you want? Why are you here?"
He took his gaze to the tattooed guy who I'm totally forgot was still here.
"I was just here to trouble you but this lady here is quite interesting to me too."
He smirked at me and I looked away.
I don't know why but I don't want to look into those dark eyes of his.
"You're insane.", the boss chuckled. He's my boss now since I actually got the job which is still a shock to me.
"Shut up you motherfucker. Are you gonna deny you didn't miss me?",
Ryder laughed and I scrunched my nose together.
He uses fowl language just too much. I wonder who he is to Mr Malik.
I wonder how that is your business.
My inner woman jumps in and I roll my eyes inwardly. I was just curious.
"You can see I'm quite busy. Go and come back later."
Mr Malik says turning his gaze back to me.
"I was actually thinking of staying. You know but I'm gonna leave you to your interesting lady."
He winked at me before walking out of the office.
"Sorry about him.", he smiled at me and I shook my head.
"It's nothing sir.", I slammed my fingers against my thighs as he stared at me.
"Every woman always falls in that trap. How did you managed to escape"
He raised his brows at me and I didn't even have a clue of what he was talking about.
"What trap?", I replied and he smiled as the realization hits me.
"Oh, that. Was it a trap?", what kind of a trap is asking a lady the benefit she would be to you before giving her a job.
"Yes, more like a test. I don't want a employer that would be gawking all over or trying to seduce me which is what everyone does and that pisses me off.
You're the second one that has passed that test so far "
Who is the first one? I wanted to ask.
Jesus, Roxanne. Just quit being a little nosy thing, would you?
I can feel my subconscious scolding me again.
What? I was just curious.
"So you would be offered the position of being my personal assistant. I think you know what to do, right?", I nodded and he smiled.
"You will be starting tomorrow coming exactly by eight and leaving by five.
Your monthly payment would be sixty thousand bucks. Is that alright with you? "
What? Of course it's alright with me. That's huge.
"Yes sir. Thank you.", I smile and he nods.
"I hope you don't make me regret working with you Roxanne.", he had a frown on as he spoke and I shook my head.
"Never! I promise it would be a pleasure working with me."
I grinned and he shakes his head before dismissing me.
I bowed and walk out of the office happily.
I can't believe i got the job. Oh my god! I got the job.
I'm glad I came back, what would have happened if I didn't?
Oh I don't even want to think about that. I got the job!
"Roxanne!", I heard someone call my name and I turn back to see Jason walking up to me.
"Hey Jason", I smile at him and he pecked my cheeks.
"I thought you said you lost the job. I saw you coming out of the building."
"Oh yes. I was asked to come back today and I did, luckily I did got the job.", I grinned as I told him and he hugged me.
"I'm so proud of you Roxy. So... ", he started rubbing the back of his neck. He looks so cute being nervous.
"So?", I asked, even though I know what he wanted to talk about. I love seeing people nervous, weird right?
"About that thing I asked.", he rubbed his palm together gazing at me.
"What thing?", I furrowed my brows and he sighed.
"Roxanne.. ", he groaned, a frown taking over his nervous features and I chuckled. He's so adorable.
"You look so cute, you know", I laugh and he rolls his eyes at me.
"I will go on a date with you Jason, but just not today. I need to prepare for my first day at work tomorrow.
Maybe we can get coffee later?", I raise my brows and he grins.
"Yes. Of course I would love to. Thank you so much rox."
I smiled and nodded.
"I will call you."
I nod again and he kiss my cheek before I crossed the road and hailed a cab.
I can't wait to start preparing. I must iron my clothes and pack things I need for the office. Pick out good clothes and maybe even extra in case first one gets ruined. I must set the alarm so I won't be late and I should probably tell mom to prepare a light food for tomorrow and. Oh! I just can't wait for my first day at work. I just hope it goes well.
