Claire provokes Killian
“Mr Knight, Claire is not at her desk” Raven reports to me.
I drop the file I was reviewing..
Have you checked the pantry?” “Yes”
“Okay, you can go”
She left without another word.
Where the fu.ck is Claire when I need her… I’m so damn angry right now…
And she’s the only one who can calm me down without even trying…
My mom’s visit angered me… She just birth me into this world and that’s all… She never give me any attention, she was never there when I needed
her, she never cared for me or even Keira… All she’s good at is fighting with my dad for good reason.
Many people say I’m too cold or heartless… I don’t care… Because of my cold nature I was able to reach this status..
“Killian… Chloe’s PA called” pulled me from my train of thought.
“What did she say?”
She said the meeting will be postpone to next month”
Cause Chloe is in Paris”
Fuck!!…. Who’s gonna model for our new RPG character?”
Chloe knows very well that she’ll be modelling for us.. so why the hell did she travel to Paris…
“Claire can model for us!”
I sent him a harsh glare immediately he said that.
“What?” He asks.
“She’s not modelling for us”
“Why? Last time she did well, she’s perfect for it”
“She’s not modelling for us and that’s final!… Didn’t like the way those guys were looking at her last time” I said.
“Hold up… Killian what is going on between you two?, You didn’t give me an answer last time I asked”
Nothing” I replied.
Nothing?… So I can make a move on her..”
“No!” I yelled angrily… If he wasn’t my friend.. I would’ve punched the mouth he used in saying that.
“Then tell me is something going on?”
“Since when? ” He looks at me expectantly.
We’ve been on for some weeks now…. But we made it official yesterday” I told him.
“Fucking asshole… That’s what I’m talking about! I knew you can’t keep your shit together around Claire for too long.. finally you’ve found the one… ”
Just then someone knocked on my door
” Come in” I said.
Claire walked in….her pencil skirt and blouse hugged her body… putting all
her curves on display.
“Killian.. Raven said you want to see me” she said avoiding my eyes.
Lucas whistles and stood up.
“I’ll take that as my cue….see you guys later” then he dashes out the door.
I stood up from my chair and walked up to Claire, cupping her face in my hands.
“Where were you? You are 37minutes late… your lunch break has long ended”
I try to raise her head..so that I can look into her eyes…but she didn’t allow me to.
“I..I went somewhere”
“Where was that?”
She sucked in a large amount of air… and slowly let it out…then she closed her eyes.
“I had lunch with your Mom”
As if her words shocked me….I let go of her and took a step back.
She did what?
Killian’s expression is nothing like what I expected…his staring at me with a burning rage in his eyes…if he was a cartoon character..fire would’ve been brimming from his eyes.
“You did what?!!”
“Killian..he..hear me out…”
Hear you out? Why did you meet with my mother secretly? Why didn’t you tell me first?”
Because you won’t let me go… And…”
You’re damn right, I wouldn’t have let you meet with her” he roared in my face..
“What the fu.ck is wrong with you, Claire? What are you trying to prove? That you’ll make the perfect daughter-in-law?”
What has come over Killian? I know he’s mad at his mother but he should at least give the poor woman a chance to explain things to him clearly.
“Killian calm down and li…..”
“Don’t tell me to calm down… You act like you know everything but you know nothing at all…this is my business Claire..it shouldn’t bother you. We’ve only started dating for..what?..few hours.. it’s not even up to a day yet, and you’re already making your own decisions. You’re acting on your own will.. Claire you need to know your limits, don’t ever cross the line..this
is my family matter. I’ll solve it myself” he hissed and begin to run his fingers through his hair.
So what my mom said is right…men are deceiving…I thought what we had was special..I thought from the moment I gave myself to him, there will be no secrets and boundaries between us…but I was so wrong. He doesn’t trust me.. to him I’m just some girl trying to get his family name.
I feel something wet fall on my chest…I touch my cheeks and feel wetness, that’s when I knew I was crying.
“But Killian..” I tried to talk to him again…if he could just listen to me for a minute..I’m sure he wouldn’t be this angry.
“Claire leave my office I don’t want to see you right now” he said rubbing his forehead.
” Leave!” He said dangerously calm.
“Fine! Since you don’t want to see me or listen to me…just know that your parents are getting a divorce!!”
With that I stormed out of his office. I head to my desk and try to force myself into doing some work…but I couldn’t..my thoughts keep going back to what Killian said.. I keep replaying each word in my mind.
I sigh tiredly… maybe Killian is just stressed that why he shouted at me… I’ll try talking to him after work hours.
After work hours….
I packed my stuff and rushed outside to wait for Killian so we can ride home together… and maybe try talking to him again.
I didn’t wait for too long, before Killian came out…he walked past me towards his car without saying anything…I hurried behind him..
“I don’t want to hear it” he cuts me off.
I decided to keep quiet and let the matter rest for now…he walked to the driver’s side and open the door and enter.
I rolled my eyes.
He didn’t even bother to open the door for me, like he used to do… Ignore his behavior and reach for the door to the Passengers side…but it was locked..I knocked on the door so that he can open it from inside.
He winds down the glass and poked his head out..
“You can take a cab or Walk..I don’t care” he winds up and speed off.
I stared at his car in shock… until it was out of sight.
I scoffed. If doesn’t want to talk to me…then so be it. But I can’t go to that penthouse now…I need to go somewhere and cool myself. After much thinking…I decided to go to the park…I board a taxi and head to the nearest park….
