I still can’t believe I foolishly accepted to
stay and help Damon with his work.
I just couldn’t refuse him and now I’m
stuck up here.
I left my luggage at the edge of my bed
and la!d on my bed.
I’m too tired to rearrange my clothes back
in the wardrobe.
I closed my eyes and slept off.
I woke up the next day with a slight
I yawned, got down from my bed and
went to do my morning routine.
Done with my morning routine, I went
downstairs and met Damon at the dinning.
Hé waved at me and I rolled my eyes.
So dramatic. He acts as if last night never
happened ___ as if nothing happened.
“come sit your butt for breakfast ” he said
and I walked over to him at the dinning.
“is this breakfast ” I scoffed.
“yeah ” he replied.
It was just pizza and wine.
Wine in the morning, what a good diet.
Too hungry to argue, I sat down and
stuffed some pizzas into my mouth.
“why are you staring intently at me ” I
asked with my mouth full as Damon stare
I mean if it’s the way I’m eating then duh!
Last night I didn’t eat anything at the
function and when we came home, I
couldn’t eat after all the heart breaking
words Damon said so I’m d–n hungry.
“so about the contract or whatever you call
it ” I said and his head snapped up at me.
Tch! What does he think I want to say?
“let’s emphasize more on the contract, I
mean the one between us ” I blurted out
and he held a blank expression.
“so you want payment ” he said and I
“after all, marriage is just a legal paper
signed and we can also sign some papers
to break if off ” he blurted out and I
s—-d in a breath.
I know that and he don’t have to remind
me that I’m nothing to him.
Our marriage was just legal formalities and
“yup ” I said with a fake smile.
I’m really nothing more to this man.
“OK I’ll get everything in paper and we’ll
sign it. I’ll pay for as long as you stay for
the contract and when we’re done, well
sign the divorce papers “he said with no
glimpse of guilt and I nodded.
He gulped down the remains of the wine
in his glass and went over to a couch to sit.
He brought out his phone to make calls
and I focused on my food.
I’m too hungry to care about his phone
After eating all the pizzas and flushing it
with the wine, I discarded the pizza box
and cleared the table.
The door bell rang and Damon and I
glanced at each other.
He sat still not ready to get his butt off that
couch so I went to get the door.
“good day ma’am, these are for Mr
Saltzman ” a boy in his 20s said, handing
me some documents.
“thanks “I said and closed the door.
I walked over to Damon and dropped the
files on the table in front of him.
“it should be “ours ” he said and I arched
“sit your pretty ass on the couch ” he
ordered and I sat opposite him.
He took one of the files and gave it to me.
The file was for our agreement, statement
or contract, whatever it is.
I’ll be paid for as long as I stay here and
that’s for as long as the contract he wants,
He’ll pay 15,000 $ a month and the money
will be transferred to my account.
I forced a smile and looked up to Damon.
“is it okay ” he asked.
“of course, I’m fine with the pay ” I said
with the forced smile.
“OK then sign it ” he said.
I picked up the pen that la!d on the table
and signed the document.
He arranged the files and got up to leave.
I stood up to go to my room but missed
my step and almost fell but Damon’s strong
arms caught me just in time.
I breathed out a relief cause had I hit my
butt on the tiled floor, I might even be
He held me close to his chest as I tried to
calm my breath.
“are you alright? ” he asked, his arm still
wrapped around me.
I was so lost in him that I could stay like
this all day.
I breathe in his scent, staring at his hard
I was trying hard not to run my hands
down his chest.
I thought I’d finally have him after
marrying him but no!
“are you alright? ” he asked again and I
looked at him from my lashes.
My eyes drifted to his lips and before I
knew it, my lips were on his.
I kissed him gently with my hands on his
I thought he’d pull away but he
reciprocated and our lips moved in perfect
He pulled me closer to his hard body and
roughly grabbed my hips making a m0an
escape from the back of my throat.
He asked for entrance and I gladly opened
up to him.
He slid in his tongue, teasing me.
Oh jeez! He’s really to die for.
Just when our make out intensified, the
door bell rang.
“what a perfectly perfect time ” I muttered
under my breath.
Damon smirked and went to get it.
“Piper ” I heard Damon say.
A woman with blonde hair, tiny legs and
luscious breasts came in.
“hey ” she said and kissed Damon.
My eyes widened when Damon pulled her
to him and kissed her but I kept my cool.
I mean I’m just a means for him to win a
contract and nothing more.
The lady which I know to be Piper pulled
away and her eyes landed on me.
“who’s she? ” she asked as they walk
“hmmmmm not anyone important ”
Damon said and they walked upstairs.
I s—-d in a long breath, blinking away
the stupid tears that welled up in my eyes.
I swallowed the lump I presume to be
stuck in my throat and went upstairs.
Passing by Damon’s room, I heard m0ans
and I felt my heart sink.
I ran to my room and collapsed on my bed.
All my dreams, everything is shattered.
