Amanda season 2
A week had passed since Nathan had been arrested and Greg had taken back his position as the C.E.O of Beecroft Software Empire.
He had given Gwen series of instruction not to take any call from his father or let him into the office; he felt really hurt that his father had fired him without due process and based on allegations.
‘I need another cup of coffee Gwen’ Greg yelled across.
‘Here you are sir, I am wondering if you could still hire another personal assistant’ Gwen smiled as she dropped the tray of coffee and cookies on the table.
‘Really? How hard is it to make coffee’? Greg laughed.
‘Very hard. Let’s face it, Amanda was really suitable for that job, maybe you should get her back’ Gwen suggested.
‘I’ve heard you, I have to work now’ Greg grinned and pointed at the door.
‘Amanda’ he whispered her name and stared at his phone, he had saved her picture in his gallery and he couldn’t stop staring at it.
‘Congratulations man! C.E.O of the year’ Morgan walked in with a magazine.
‘What’s this’? Greg wondered why his friend was so excited.
‘You’ve been awarded as C.E.O of the year by the AEB, it’s a big deal and we’re going’ Morgan flipped the business magazine and showed it to his friend.
‘Why did they have to use that picture of me’? Greg scoffed; he really looked funny in it.
‘And what’s AEB anyway? Never heard of that before’ Greg asked. He had received a lot of awards in the past, this was alien to him.
‘American Entrepreneurs Board, I’ll write your speech’ Morgan offered.
‘That’s if I am going; my father stained my name, how do you think those people will see me’? Greg was still mad even though Nathan had paid for his sins.
‘And your father is sorry, maybe you should hear the man out; Nathan was really one smart a—–e who fooled your dad; it’s okay to be mad but you should let this one go’ Morgan advised.
‘Whatever, I’ll go for it, but I’ll need to go with someone’ Greg winked.
‘Find a date, I’m coming with Alex’ Morgan suggested.
‘Really? I thought we had a BROMANCE thing going on here’? Greg laughed.
‘Yes we do, but it’s time for you to move on from Wendy and the happenings of the past week’ Morgan added.
‘You’re right. I have a date’ Greg’s lips twitched mischievously.
‘Wow, you move fast don’t you? Who’ s she’?
‘Gwen’ Greg replied.
‘you mean your secretary’? Morgan grimaced, those two were too different, I didn’t see that coming.
‘Kidding’ Greg laughed.
‘Better’ Greg replied.
‘So how about Amanda’? Morgan winked.
‘You really liked her and she is hot, all eyes would be on you two for the night’ Morgan suggested.
Greg resisted the urge to smile; she had been on his mind the whole week. When he woke, he saw her face; when he took a bath he saw her eyes and when he was resting, her smile flashed in his mind.
This has to be it. He was in love.
‘I think I love her but I might have ruined my chances’ Greg finally admitted it aloud.
‘Oh my God, this calls for celebration, Greg Beecroft is in love’! Morgan cheered.
‘Hey keep your voice down, she probably hates me for firing her in the first place, besides, I don’t know if she is seeing anyone’ Greg sighed.
‘You know what? I’ll come over house after work and we would devise a plan on how to conquer the blue eyed blonde, how does that sound’?
‘Cool. See you later bro’ Greg grinned and returned to the files he worked on but not before watching her picture one last time.
He was acting like a teenager who was having his first crush; he was actually thinking of a woman, something he had never done. Love was a crazy thing but he felt happy he had fallen for someone as honest and hardworking as Amanda.
A week had passed since she had openly admitted her feelings for Greg Beecroft; she didn’t know what to do with them. She found it hard to focus on other things except his seductive eyes and his hot lips and the scenes of their night of passion kept playing back in her mind.
‘Are you really doing this’? Alex scoffed and stared across her friend who was sitting before her dressing mirror.
‘Sure, I meant it. I don’t need pity money’ Amanda powdered her face and wore a little make up.
‘It’s not pity money for the last time, Greg is a billionaire; he can afford to throw money around; it fell on you this time; you’re lucky’ Alex could never understand why Amanda acted this way.
‘You don’t understand I’ll be back’ she blew Alex a kiss and rushed out of the house.
‘Hey, don’t be too hard on him, he is smitten’ Alex held her mouth. Morgan had told her Greg had feelings for Amanda and she had almost slipped.
‘What’? Amanda paused.
‘Nothing, go ahead’ she replied.
It didn’t take her long to arrive the company.
Memory whisked her back in time and she realized how time had flown. She remembered the first time she’d seen him at the clock; his face was hard and handsome, his jaw was arrogant, from that moment her heart had melted for him.
She had started dreaming about him shortly and now everything she dreamt had come to pass except the part where they told each other “I love you”.
She stepped into the elevator and decided she was doing the right thing; there was no turning back now.
As she reached the floor where Greg’s office was, the first person she bumped into was Wendy.
‘Oh, I am sorry about that’ she quickly apologized to Amanda.
Amanda was surprised, so Wendy the rude lady could apologize?
‘Listen, your mother must have probably told you I visited and I was really mean. I am sorry about that; I know I have not been so nice to you and I am sorry too’ Wendy apologized and scurried off.
‘Wow’ she was thrilled. She felt jealous as she remembered that was Greg’s girlfriend; her heart sank as she neared his office.
‘Mandy’! Gwen almost screamed as she approached.
‘Gwen’ Amanda rushed and hugged her.
‘I really missed you, I was just telling Greg about you today, you look wonderful, how have you been’?
They exchanged pleasantries for some minutes.
‘Can I see him now’? Amanda asked.
‘Sure go in’ Gwen nodded.
She drew one last breath and knocked.
‘Come in Gwen, I have some work for you’ he called to her.
‘Good day’ Amanda stepped into the office. Seeing him in his tux, hair in place looking so adorable, all her confidence fled and she suddenly felt tongue tied.
‘Amanda’? Greg rose to his feet.
For a moment, the world stopped; their eyes glued; they were inseparable.
‘I came to return your money; I don’t need your pity Greg. Really, I am fine’ she said.
‘It’s not pity money, you’re a hardworking person and you deserve it’ Greg felt bad she would reject his money.
‘I know but I only take money that I earned. This is too much for me, way beyond my paycheck’ she sighed.
‘What if you work and earn it? I wouldn’t pay you again’ Greg suggested.
‘No. I don’t want to work here in Beecroft, I got myself another job’ she lied.
How could she stand there and pretend that his presence wasn’t affecting her?
‘You have another job? Where’? Greg carefully picked his phone, he was going to ask them to sack her.
‘It doesn’t matter’ she braced up.
‘Or you’re lying? And why would you be lying Amanda’? He noticed she was blushing.
‘I don’t lie’ she almost stepped back but held her stand as Greg took calculated steps towards her.
‘Are you sure? I feel you like me and your feelings for me may get in the way of your job’ he stopped.
Their eyes facing each other, breath touching, an inch apart.
‘I don’t have time for this, you’re delusional’ she made for the door but he grabbed her so fast. She had not seen that coming.
‘Then deny this’ he whispered and covered her mouth with his kiss.
His lips tasted so nice; sweet and familiar and she found herself lost in his arms.
He loved the womanly scent of her and the lushness of her pink lips. He was in love and he wasn’t ashamed; he wanted her to feel what he was feeling now.
‘Stop’ she pushed him away.
‘Why’? He asked.
‘I can’t do this anymore. I love you but we cannot be together’ a tear slipped from her eyes.
‘I love you too Amanda; though it took me a long time to realize it. I am sorry if I have hurt your feelings in the process. You’re all I want, all I desire’ he was scared of her words.
‘We can’t be together Greg’ she repeated.
‘Why’? His heart was breaking, did she have someone?
‘Wendy’ Amanda whispered.
‘Wendy? No, we’re no longer together, I swear to you. We could even go ask her’ Greg reached for her hands.
‘No, that wouldn’t be necessary’ she searched his eyes and found truth glaring at her.
‘So where does that leave us’? He asked.
‘I don’t know; I am really scared, this is my first time of loving someone’ she poured out her heart.
‘I know me too. We could make this work, we’re meant to be together’ he replied.
‘I love you Greg, from the first time I met you at the club; I am really sorry I slapped you that night, I thought you’d sent the obscene note to me’ this was the right time to apologize and she had taken it.
‘I love you too darling and I am sorry for being mean to you. For firing you like that, and for calling that night at the lounge a mistake. Can you forgive me’? He pressed a soft kiss on the back of her hand.
‘Yes. I don’t regret that night; it was supposed to happen’ she said to him.
‘Yes and I want all the moments we would ever spend together to feel so wonderful’ he dragged her gently towards himself.
She didn’t resist. She followed the amorous flow.
‘I love you Amanda’ Greg stared deeply into her blue eyes.
‘I thought you hated blue eyed blondes’ she joked and they both laughed.
‘Maybe but not you’ he whispered and placed a kiss on her face.
They had found each other; her dreams had found the light of day and everything was perfect.
Yes, he desired her and she desired him and everything about this beautiful longing and craving was perfect.
Her days now had meaning, all her life she had lived feeling empty but since she found Greg, she felt alive; the days she spent with him were filled with bliss and laughter and she wondered if there was any other thing sweeter than being in love with the right man.
‘Hurry Alex. He just texted me, he is close to the house’ Amanda said to her friend who was dressing her up for the award night.
‘Stay calm, don’t ruin your make up, tonight is a special night’ Alex said to her.
‘I feel so happy with him Alex, sometimes I feel it wouldn’t last or it is not real enough’ Amanda sighed.
‘Stop having negative thoughts. Just relax and enjoy this perfect moment’ Alex advised. She understood where her friend was coming from, love was a perfect feeling and not everyone was used to perfect.
‘You just sounded like my mother’ Amanda smiled.
‘No smiles! You’ll ruin the make-up’ Alex snorted.
‘Mandy! He is here’ her mother called out to her.
‘I told you Alex! We’re late’ Amanda cried and jumped to her feet.
‘Remember to smack your lips and smile for the cameras’ Alex advised.
‘I thought you and Morgan would be there’ Amanda’s face fell.
‘No, change of plans, I have a dinner with his parents tonight’ Alex winked.
‘Wow bold move, do you think he would propose’? Amanda asked.
‘I don’t know, but I’ll really be thrilled’ Alex replied.
‘I love you so much and I happy for you’ Amanda voice broke.
‘Please don’t cry else you’ll ruin the make-up’ Alex rushed and hugged her.
After they broke up, Amanda rushed to the parlor to see Greg while Alex left for the bathroom to wash her hands.
She paused and watched as Greg related with her mother; they flowed very well and this was their first meeting.
“Are you kidding me? I love rugby, boyish huh”? Mrs. Atkins laughed.
“I’ll take you some time and we would watch live” Greg smiled.
‘Hello there’ Amanda walked in, she was really glad they got along; she’d feared her mother would be too hard on him as she was very overprotective.
He opened his mouth to speak but words failed him. She looked stunning; all the stars and the moon where going to envy her tonight.
‘You’re beautiful’ his voice was husky with emotion.
‘Thank you’ heat crept up her neck as she stared at him, he was impeccably dressed.
‘You look good too’ she replied.
‘You both should go now, before it’s too late’ her mother said.
‘Goodbye mum and make sure you keep the T.V on, you’re going to see me on it’ Amanda kissed her face.
‘Bye Mrs. Atkins, I’ll make good on my promise’ Greg waved.
She reminded him of his own mother.
‘Thanks Greg, have fun’ she waved.
‘You can stop hiding now Alex, we both know they are going to kiss; they were just too afraid to do it before me’ Mrs. Atkins laughed.
‘I need to see them kiss’ Alex laughed and rushed to the window.
‘I am so happy for her’ Mrs. Atkins smiled.
His hands were warm on hers as they both stepped outside underneath the full glare of the moonlight.
‘You’re astonishing’ his eyes were filled with passion.
‘I love you Greg, you’re a kind man’ Amanda smiled and raised herself up to meet his mouth.
‘You’re very special to me’ he held her still and when he was done adoring her beauty with his words, his lips fell on hers.
They engaged in a passionate kiss; the stars bore witness; the moon was the judge, her hair was danced as the wind whistled.
He had found freedom in her; all his life he had lacked one thing, he had found Amanda.
She lured him with the sweet taste of her mouth; she had met fulfillment.
So together, they chased after passion and desire till they reached the pleasure grove, a place meant for lovers alone.
Only then did he break the kiss and whispered ‘I love you’.
Her eyes found the truth and she buried her golden curls in his chest, she had found the one
