INSIDE THE PRESIDENT'S OFFICE
The masked lady has just entered the office and poured herself a glass of water when her assistant knocked on the door. "Come in"
"President, while you were busy in a meeting there were two calls for you. As per your instructions, I didn't pick either; one was from President X and the other one was from a caller named 'J'"
Bai Xin, her secretary, informed and handed the cell phone over.
The moment masked lady saw the name 'J', a warm smile rushed on to her lips breaking her cold façade instantly. She was a completely different person than what she was in a meeting just now.
Xin's eyes widened in shock watching the alluring smile of her boss that reaches to eyes. Her jaw almost dropped to the floor looking at the tinge of blush on her President's face. She was curious to know the reason behind this beautiful smile, is it President X or the mysterious caller named 'J'.
Without paying attention to Assistant Xin, the masked lady first called back to the caller named 'J'….
J: Hey, love! Miss me?"
She chuckles, "No! Why would I? It's only been a few hours when we last saw each other! "
She heard an audible sigh from the phone.
J: "No! Not a few hours! It's exact 6 hours 17 minutes 34 seconds. Now it's 36 seconds… 38…. 40… With each passing second, this time is increasing." He complained it like a child and she could only laugh at this heartily.
Bai Xin was hearing this cute talk standing on the side and looked at her boss with a ghost smile pasted on her face. She is by her (masked lady) side for five years but had never seen her smiling at anyone, at least not in the office. But OMG, today her boss smiled looking at the call? And then she laughed talking to one of the callers! This only happens when you are love-struck and the name of the person appears in front of you or you get to hear his voice! Is the boss in love with someone? Is the boss in a relationship with President X? Or is it with the person named 'J'? Who did the boss called? 'J' OR 'X'?
"Hold on for a second!" she asked him to wait, covered the mouthpiece with palm and turned to look at her secretary, "Xin, come after an hour. But before leaving the office I want to meet the three of you, okay?"
"Sure! I'll inform them," said Xin and left the office, closing the door behind.
"Jianyu… Instead of counting time, go and attend meetings. Don't you have any more meetings scheduled for the day? Stop wasting your time talking to me!" She casually took off her mask and tossed it randomly onto the couch before entering inside her office lounge. Settling herself on the couch she opened her laptop to check some of the details regarding the company while simultaneously talking to Feng Jianyu on the phone.
"Mei, you are such a bore! You know how badly I want to kiss you right now. Just by looking at the building of Phoenix Enterprises from my office, I want to drive out my car to your office and bring you here to Feng Corporation's headquarters."
She smiled hearing his cheesy words. Obviously, there was desire in his voice yet it was full of longing and love for her. Thinking about what she has done in the conference room just now, her expression changed.
'I'm sorry Jianyu, but what I've done today was necessary to trap those filthy Kong's towards their impending doom. I know if I have told you in advance you would have never allowed me to do this, considering there is a greater risk of the secret of Alice being alive come in front of the Kong's. But rest assured, I'll protect my life more than anything. After all, I want to wake up in your arms every day, I want to see this whole world holding your hands, I want to grow old with you and I want to be spoiled rotten by your constant pampering…. I was…. I am…. And I will love you more than my life.'
"Hello? Hello? Mei? Are you there?"
She woke up from her reverie and answered, "Hm! I'm listening! What is it?"
"I think you are busy today! No more pestering! But don't stress yourself much, you are still under recuperation. Okay? I'm hanging up. Love you!"
Her heart stirred by his warm words. How come this man always manages to say something this sweeter? Are men more romantic than woman or I'm the exceptional case? Am I dumb when it comes to expressing my feelings? Should I ask someone for help?
