"The company belongs to Derek, and guess what more…." She leaves a space for suspense. "He accepted me! I have to start work immediately, I'm sorry I can't return home this afternoon as I promised to take you out and celebrate if I get the job. I'm so sorry I didn't tell you when I heard of the vacancy, I thought you wouldn't let me go for it." "Come on, that's not an issue as long as you have gotten the job. Why wouldn't I allow you when we are looking for a chance to get back into his life? Why should you be bothered? We can go out at night! But I'm so surprised that he took you after all that you did to him?" Gianna shrugs her shoulders, one part of her mind thinks that Derek is foolish for doing this, another voice inside her mind cautions her. Have you asked her if he talked about the maltreatment? This is one vital aspect of the scenario she should have asked right from the beginning but excitement wouldn't let her. "Baby, did you talk about the maltreatment you showed toward
The excited Tahlia wastes no time in signing it. Immediately after she signs the form, Derek rises from his seat dismissing her. "You can start work right away. My Personal Assistant would be available to guide you for your first two weeks here to make sure that you do the right thing always. You may now go!" After another ``Thank you`` she packs her things and leaves Derek's office straight to the exterior of the company but then she remembers that he asked her to start work immediately. "How foolish am I, going home when I'm actually asked to start work. Anyways, let me go to the toilet and call her." She refers to her mom. The toilet would prove the safest place for her to call her mom, after she locks the door, no one would be able to hear what she is saying. Even if she is questioned on where she went upon returning, she has the perfect excuse. She went to the toilet! Hurrying up, to the fifth floor where the administrative offices are, with the toilets and bathrooms for seni
**One week later**Tahlia becomes panicked deep inside her. The memories of all she did to Derek flashes back across her mind, she shrieks in horror. She realizes that she was way too mean. It's quite sad that now she is supposed to be enjoying the benefits of her change of lifestyle happens to be when she is going to bear the consequences of her actions. She is not even sure if Derek would accept her as a staff in one of his companies, she heard there's an ongoing vacancies for various position. She was financially down, so she had no choice but to try her luck. She will do all it takes to get the job, from there she can get him in person. "Good afternoon, sir." "What's good about the afternoon?" He asks her, giving her a bad stare that sends shock running through her veins. "No, actually……." "Shhhh!" Derek silences her even before she gets to complete her statement. She shrieks in shock. Then the door opens. He had pressed the dial on his phone which was meant to summon Hughes
Derek, because of Bianca doesn't follows Jaria back to America. If he did, he would be meeting his dad also and would have to start tackling the issues his company has got, this he hasn't prepared himself so well for. He needs to set up an executive committee consisting of Aurelius, Eloine, and seven others who would look intensely into the bankruptcy case. So Jaria had to say her final goodbye to Derek in a live video from America, in the presence of Dawson and Aurelius who accompanied her. He took her for his boss, as they were very good friends and friends have to be with each other to the very last but he is glad that she is going from where he met her to a higher position. "I'll always love you!" Jaria gives Derek her last words which breaks him down, sane with his dad who had taught that she would be the girl he would bring home as he needs a woman alongside him, the custom as a typical CEO. He would love his son to start learning more responsibilities apart from work.Jaria f
Harry returns to tell Derek what has happened between him and Jaria. "She locked me out, she claims she has something important to do and besides she has no friendly attitude like before, a bossy one has replaced it."Derek raises his eyes and looks as Harry with surprise. "I can't believe she has begun showing attitude as she now has money. She wasn't like that before. Let me go by myself." Harry watches as Derek takes his leave, walking out in haste with a confused face, he wonders why he didn't say a word to what he just told him. Derek spoke inside of his mind.He walks up to the next floor where he heads straight to Jaria's room, then knocks on her door. The first knock comes without response because Jaria suspects it must be related to he lunch. Two more knocks comes with another silence, on the third time, Jaria decides to respond."Hello, who's that at the door?" She grows furious that these people are trying to distract her from an important thing she's doing. "Sorry, I'm not
Her lips shake, her eyes blink, she can't believe that Derek is calling at this time, she thought perhaps it's one of her friends or clients. Her heart beats so fast, she will confirm the billionaire heiress Jaria claimed from Derek, she doesn't wants to believe that such a thing can happen, that Jaria can come from nowhere and sow pass her."I need to talk with you, where are you now?""Honey, I'm here with Jaria." She pronounces her name as if it's a piece of shit, with a very obvious sarcasm. Jaria looks at her and keeps smiling, with the full knowledge that she's acting out of jealousy. "Anyway, I don't have such time with a jealous fool." She calls her deep inside her, if she wanted to create a drama, then she will answer her for every degrading word or act she puts up."What!" Derek screams. These two have been rivals, so him hearing that they are together makes him wonder. Is it because she's gonna leave, this thought as well comes to mind. Aside this, he imagines Jaria invitin
**A week later**It's been a week of intense passion between Bianca and Derek at Jaria's absence, but now Derek has received a call and he needs to return back to America to look after his company against all odds. There has been a case of potential bankruptcy which if something isn't done about it, will crumble the entire company.As Derek is taking the call, Jaria comes to sit by his side. He pretends not to see her, over the past days, he feels has not paid adequate attention to his company, rather he has been soaked in romance, now is the time to correct his wrongs."Dad, you don't see the potential danger I'll be placing myself into?" He's still afraid of falling prey of Jackson's men."You don't have to worry, the cops have arrested about eighty of his men, besides you will always have security protecting you whenever you go out, till the situation is totally brought to order, but yet you still need someone by your side, a wife or as you wish, an escort."Hearing this, he grunts
Derek freezes to the spot. He gets afraid that Bianca will discover his true aim apart from being sick. He has something special and important to say to her, how he wishes she would just listen to him and stop being stubborn."Wouldn't you let me rest before you begin your questions?" He asks her."Oh well, sorry." Taking his hand, she leads him to the dining room where she had set everything on the table. He is wowed by what he sees, he never expected that she could be so talented in cooking."Wow, this is really nice, attractive, I'm sure the taste of the food would be as good as the scent.""Sure!" Bianca affirms.When he first saw her as a love interest, he never thought that she could cook so attractively as what he is seeing right now. Being an activist lawyer that is always running cases in different countries, it seemed to him that she had no time to learn the art of catering only for him to be surprised right now.He takes a seat together with Bianca and they begin to eat.
