His body is warm against mine. His lips are leaving feathery light kisses on my sensitive skin, awakening all my senses….

I woke up with a jolt, sweaty, wanting and with so many emotions, I've never felt before I slept with him. The feel of his lips, hands, his whole body is so recognizable by my whole being. 741Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡC93kZ0JFGB

I raised from the comfy mattress, to saunter to the bathroom. I stripped to nothing and stood beneath the sharp spray. I closed my eyes and those beautiful electric blue eyes, which have been haunting me since that night, drowned my mind. I shook my head and tried thinking about something else. 741Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYaoR0d5YOZ

I put on a dark bra with matching knickers. Then I searched my closet for clothes to wear to work. I wore a plain white, scoop neck blouse paired with a brown, fitted pencil skirt. I picked cream, pointed-toe pumps, with decent heel. Which are comfortable enough to run around the office, if needed.

I pulled my long, wavy golden brown hair in a high ponytail. I put minimalist makeup, I learnt back in college from my best friend, Jane Arthur. Which reminds me, I haven't talked to her for a while. So, I texted her.

I put my phone along with other needed essentials in my black hobo bag and left for work.

My small rented studio apartment in Greenpoint is 40 minutes away through the subway. The neighbourhood is good, not like the one I used to live at, when I first came to New York. 741Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYyDf6IDQ9e

Soon I was surrounded with the buzz of the morning crowd of midtown Manhattan. After a five minute walk from the subway station, stood the imposing 42 story building. With Rutherford Corporation made up in shiny silver above the main gate, where a towering guard in blue uniform stood.

I went inside the extravagant lobby, which was designed to impress. Taking the jam-packed elevator, I stepped out on my floor. To be greeted by my boss, Mary Jones's forbidding face. She waved her hand for me to follow her inside her office.

Her office is prim and proper, so much like her appearance and so much different from my cubicle, when I'm working. I searched her self-important face with her small black eyes and raven hair styled to perfection, caked with makeup, for any trace of a hint, what's coming my way.

Finally, after some agonizing moments, she spoke: “You’ll have to prepare the conference room within half an hour for presentation.” She gave me a look to dismiss me. 741Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡA35T0VMeSX

I wanted to ask why, the presentation is supposed to be happening two days from now? But as always I kept my mouth shut and stepped out. 741Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQDsoDoUAxd

“Hey Em,” Came the voice of Alex. Alex is one of my good friends in this office. He is a short guy, with walnut brown hair and chocolate brown eyes. He is handsome in different kind of way. Too bad, he's gay. I put my bag on my work desk and turned to him.

“Why is the presentation happening today?” I threw the question at him. “Well, hello to me.” He replied dryly. “And the answer to your question is because the big boss returned from his trip early.”

Radian is back. Oh god, how am I going to face him. The next morning after our night together, he had left abruptly for his trip, without a word. Which is expected, because one, Radian Rutherford is a playboy. The one who is rich, rich as a billionaire and totally irresistible by the female population. Second, he's my boss and that night was a result of too much drinks.

So, like his any other one-night stand, I've tried to forget all about that happened between the two of us. Firstly, due to the fact that there's no future for us. I love my job and have no intention of leaving it for a heartbreak that is a definite to come. Also, the second reason is that the guy doesn't date, only do one-night stands. Which actually leads to non-existence of the first reason all together. 741Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡLKreeNuDys

Even after knowing all this, a week later I'm still unable to convince my body and heart…., no my body that the night is indubitably over. 741Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUFiuLmeOKd

“I think I should hurry then,” I said to Alex, trying to ignore all those thoughts, that should be long forgotten. “I need to prepare the conference room.” I waved my hand and went on my way to the conference room.

The room looked ready. There were refreshments, pamphlets, and all the other necessary stuff were placed in the orderly manner in the right place in the room. The room is quite big for a conference room. It has a large and long polished mahogany table, with flint gray chairs, orderly spread all around it. All the high-end projection equipment is available in this room. The salt colored walls are decorated with elegant paintings.

Soon the place was filled with all the potential investors, along with me and Mary. We waited twenty minutes before the austere face of a very tall, poised man wearing gray Armani suit entered. With his cold electric blue eyes, which didn't betray an emotion, looking around, ignoring me and he move to settle in one of the empty chairs. This told me everything thing I already knew. I'm nothing more than an employee and can never be. That is what his behavior now showed. 741Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡnruVVJ3FZo

No one dared to question him about being late, also he didn't utter an apology. Which was expected as no one wanted to be on the wrong side of this very powerful man. At the age of twenty six, having several businesses all around the world and wealth beyond dreams. He has power, so much power that these people were scared of him.741Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡG9P4X2QThF

Keeping my emotions at bay, I went on with my presentation. Shortly, it was over and people started leaving the room. Soon, it was me, Mary and Radian left in the big room.
741Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡRbV24CT7yZ
I started clearing things, as he and Mary talked for about two minutes. After which she left, the two of us alone. 741Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡip2xQcDobu

Suddenly, the air felt heavy. I started sweating, feeling nervous all of a sudden. I hastily moved to the door, not wanting to be alone with him anymore. As my right palm touched the door handle, a very strong, rough hand caught my left delicate wrist, sending shockwaves through the skin it touched. 741Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡqfDtNFkNjq

He roughly pulled me, which caused my front to land on his front. My breast grazing the hard panes of his chest through the fabric of our clothes. His eyes, which never showed any emotion before, are now filled with so many. Without a beat, his soft lips met mine in a kiss. Which was so like the one he gave me back at the club. His lips are demanding, possessing mine with such an intensity. Our bodies are flushed together, leaving no space for air.741Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡFkGJ2q3v9F
