♥️♥️Oh My Candy💋💋
The ride to whatever direction we’re going took forever. I sat at the back seat of the expensive vehicle I secretly wished I could buy one and listened to songs through my earphones.
Diego always checked if I’m okay by looking at the rearview mirror.
” Ma’am, are you okay?” Diego asked.
” It’s Candy, Diego not ma’am.” I corrected.
I saw him smile at me through the rearview mirror.
” Are you okay?”
” Am I supposed to be okay?”
” Maybe. You look down.”
” That’s because I’m down. Your boss, Sean is making life a living hell for me. What’s wrong with rich people and manipulation, something has to be wrong.” I said.
” Well, for one thing, he’s not manipulative. You’re some what stubborn.”
” And whose side are you in? Obviously it’s your boss’s side. Birds of a feather.” I said, he laughed.
” I’m not on anyone’s side. He doesn’t usually get women to follow him to such events. It’s not like he has a choice.”
” Nah, I don’t think that’s true. He’s rich and wealthy. He’s supposed to have almost everything he wants. He could easily get a female escort if he chooses to.”
” But then he choosed you. Thought about that?” There’s silence in the car as I thought about it. I rolled my eyes.
” You have nothing to be worried about. Mr. Smith is a nice man. You will like him if you get to know him.”
” I don’t need to know him. It’s not my job to know my payers. My job is to entertain them while they watch. Not coming over to their houses to eat expensive food and live in marvelous bedroom. His he always this weird. ” I asked. Diego smirked at me through the rearview mirror.
” Yeah, whatever.” I scoffed.
We stopped by in a boutique and I got out of the car before Diego could open it for me. I might sometimes shop for expensive clothes but I’ve never been opportune to buy wares from Beverly collection. She’s one of the top designers I’ve ever seen and mostly celebrities that usually wear her clothes.
” Wow. Beverly’s collection? Are kidding me.” I marvelled at the clothes as I glance around.
” This is cool.” I smiled at every fortune on this mannequins and closet.
” Go on, buy whatever you want.” Diego said to me.
After about 20 minutes of trying different dresses, I settled with a gold sequin dress. It’s mid-thigh and it’s so hot. I bought shoes, jewelries and Diego hand the sales girl a credit card which I assume must be Sean’s.
After bagging my clothes, the sales girl handed the credit back to Diego and a receipt. I took my bag and glance shortly at the receipt. 40 thousand dollars? For what exactly? A dress and shoes.
Diego and I returned to the car and we drove home.
“What did she say about the clothes?” I asked Diego on the phone as I go through every appointment on my desk.
” Well… Not much sir.” He answered. I waved the secretary off as she left.
” What do you mean not much?”
” She lamented. Complained they are too expensive and you had no right to buy her clothes. She said she’s nothing to you and you should stop treating her like she’s something to you.”
I sighed. Of course she’s something to me. She meant a lot to me. Growing up as a man, I discovered I needed to find her. I needed to make her mine. I wanted to wake up every morning next to her. I wanted to watch her go to sleep every night. But what if she doesn’t want any of that? With me?
” Yes, Diego. I’ll be home soon. Make sure she doesn’t do anything crazy.”
” Alright, sir.” I hung up the phone and immediately call Mark.
” Hey, Sean.”
” Sup Mark. How are you doing?” I asked him.
” You sound like a girl.” Mark mocked on the phone. He’s always crazy at times.
” You’re insane.” I chuckled.
” I know right? What’s up with you? Having Candy problems again?”
” I guess, Mark. I don’t know how to explain to her the reason I brought her here is to tell her about the kid she saved seventeen years ago and that kid turned out to be me. I just keep thinking what’s her reaction gonna be like.”
” Of course she’s gonna get mad, sick. Because you lied to her. You paid her to come dance for you and then it turned out all of this wasn’t really about a dance but to tell her you are the boy she met years ago. Come on Sean, it’s gonna sound crazy to her.”
” Sometimes I always wonder, what if she doesn’t want me same I want her.”
” Who wouldn’t want you? You’re rich and goodlooking. Girls always look for things like that in a man.”
” Can you be serious for once Mark?”
” You know I’m being serious here.”
” I don’t wanna tell her now.”
” Why not? The sooner you tell her the better for everyone. Someday you’re gonna tell her, why not tell her now.”
” The charity event tonight, I’m bringing her as my date. I said I was gonna tell her if she agree to come with me and now I’m freaking out.”
” fvck this man. Just get it done and get over it. It’s no big deal. Obviously she’s gonna freak out but everything will be alright.”
I sighed and rub my palm down my face. Why does this sound difficult? It’s gonna hurt if it turns out she wants nothing to do with me.
” Thanks Mark.”
” Sure thing Man. You be careful.”
” Yeah. Bye.” I hung up as I looked at the time . It’s almost closing hour and I need to leave early to get ready for this event.
I took in a deep breath as I put on my dress. I never for once thought I was gonna wear a dress and accompany a man to an event. Not just any man, a man I’m supposed to strip for. This is insane.
I stared at my reflection and the slight cleavage that’s exposed. I brush my hair and curl as I comb it to turn into waves. I apply make-up as I wear my shoes.
“Wow.” I muttered at the sight of my reflection. I always look good, it’s a habit.
Someone knocked on the door as I dart my head to the door. I opened it and Sean stood in front of me. Well dressed in his tuxedo. His hair is well styled and he looked so damn good. I shouldn’t talk about how good he smelled.
Good God, quit it Candy.
I noticed he’s also admiring me cause I caught him. His eyes raked down my body lustfully and I feel butterflies in my stomach. I cleared my throat and his shameful eyes retuned back to my face.
” Thank you. Shall we?”
” Yeah.” He responded and took my hand as we walk down the stairs.
” Tomorrow we’re gonna talk about why you want me as your escort and why you bought me this expensive clothes and also why have you been avoiding my dance.” I said once we’re in the car.
” Let’s enjoy the night, Candice.” He said. I tried my best to ignore the fact that my full name sounds erotic in his mouth.
God please purify my thoughts. The drive was intense, not just for me but for the both of us. Sean looked like he was fighting something within him. And a part of me knew that something he’s fighting has to do with me. The car finally stopped in front of a huge Italian style building and we stepped out of the car.
Without my notice, Sean wrapped his arms around my waist. I jerked at once but that didn’t stop him from removing his hand from around my waist.
” You don’t mind giving them an act, do you?” He whispered to my ears.
I swallowed as I took in deep breath. How dare he make me have butterflies in my stomach. This is so strange. I was so stupid to think I really had really feelings toward Tony.
I shut the thought of Tony at the back of my head and allow the night to flow perfectly. Sean and I walked inside, his arms around my waist. All of this feels so strange and it’s even more strange that I liked it.
” You’re okay?” Sean whispered, again. His he doing this on purpose? God save me.
” Yeah.” I smiled. The inside is occupied with different rich people from different backgrounds. A waiter passed with a platter and gave us two glasses of Champagne. I sipped mind at once.
I glanced around the party as my eyes fell on someone I haven’t seen for a very long time. My heart skipped a beat. Not that I missed him or cared about him, but because he was a monster.
Sean followed my line of vision and I noticed his mood changed.
