I don't know the specifics as to how MIX differs from Phoenix, but I know it's not going to be easy working there... I wonder how Sonia and Summer are doing right now... Are they in trouble? Would Tiger take it out on them after what I did? The boss at Phoenix has some connections with gangsters, so he probably wouldn't allow Tiger cause trouble there... Ugh, I don't know...
After spending the rest of the night with that bee in my bonnet, I fell asleep in the wee hours of the morning.
It was already 9 a.m. by the time I woke up again. Although Mr. Adler didn't say what time I should head over to MIX, I figured I should get there earlier if I were to start work immediately. After all, nightclubs were usually open for business in the evening and closed early in the morning.
After quickly taking a shower, I began to hesitate about what I should wear as I had bought very simple and plain-looking clothes when I went shopping with Colter the other day. I really didn't have anything suitable to wear if I were to work at a nightclub. If anything, the clothes I had would only make me look like I was there to stir trouble.
“What are you doing standing there? Why aren't you dressed yet?” Mr. Adler appeared behind me all of a sudden, which was something I had gotten used to as it was his house, and he was free to show up anytime and anywhere he liked.
He had on a black dress shirt with the top button undone, revealing his sexy collarbone once again. Had it not been for the hostile look on his face, he would've easily passed as a superstar with his handsome appearance and tall figure.
“I don't have anything suitable to wear.”
Mr. Adler frowned. “What do you mean?”
“Oh, you know... Something sexy and revealing?” I felt my cheeks burn up as I forced those words out of my mouth.
Mr. Adler narrowed his eyes and said coldly, “Hmm? Did someone tell you to wear such clothes to work at MIX? Or are you simply that cheap?”
“N-No! I just... I thought all nightclubs were the same, that's all!” I panicked when I saw him getting angry and wrapped my arms around his instinctively, just like how I did when I got into his car the first time.
From what I could tell, he rarely let anyone touch him, but seemed to feel comfortable with me doing it.
He then brushed my arm off and picked out a saffron dress from the closet. “Put this on.”
I took it over from him and was about to head over to the bathroom to get changed when he stopped me. “Get changed right here and now.”
I snuck a glance at him and saw that he wasn't going to leave, so I had no choice but to do as told.
As I undid the strap of my nightgown, the cold air in the room made me feel extremely uncomfortable. However, I could sense his burning, penetrating gaze on my back and didn't dare look at him until I was done changing. However, when I turned around and saw no traces of lust on his face whatsoever, I realized I was probably just overthinking.
While I was relieved that he wasn't preying on me like I thought he was, I couldn't help but wonder what it would take for a woman to enter his life if he had no desires at all.
He eyed me from head to toe and nodded in satisfaction. “It suits you very well, so you can just wear this to work from now on.”
Compliments were always a good thing, especially one that came from someone like Mr. Adler. I stole a glance at myself in the mirror on my way out of the room and saw how the color made me look young and energetic.
