Chapter 5 Officially The New Assistant

  • Charlotte and Riele were discussing when Riele heard her name. "Riele Grants". Mr. Owen called.
  • Charlotte looked at her. "What did you do this time?". She asked but Riele shrugged.
  • "Don't look at me like that, I did absolutely nothing."
  • "Did you pick him up at the supposed time?" Charlotte folded her arms while waiting for Riele to lie.
  • "Um, I woke up late," Riele answered softly.
  • "I just hope you are not in big trouble."
  • "I guess we are about to find out". Riele said as she walked to the office.
  • Riele exhaled and inhaled for thirty seconds after she has gotten her boldness, she knocked.
  • "Come in". She heard Mr. Owen say as she unlocked the door and entered inside. The first eyes that met hers were those of Kim. She tried to keep her beating heart in check. "Um...you called me?". She asked Mr. Owen.
  • "Yes please...have a seat". He gestured for her to sit close to Kim.
  • Riele couldn't count how many times she almost tripped. This is what you get when you have a stunning and handsome new boss. Even though he isn't doing anything, you can't help but just fall for him. His dark hair, flawless skin, doe eyes, prominent shoulders, and that cute smile of his made her heart flutter, and her stomach churned in joy. It's her first time seeing someone so handsome. She sat down and listened to whatsoever the meeting is all about.
  • "Kim, this is Riele Grants and she's going to be your PA as agreed".
  • "I still don't know why you chose her". He said as he looked at Riele trying to find out if there was anything special in her.
  • "I didn't choose her, we all did". Mr. Owen explained. "She was voted in that's why I decided that she's the one for you... I mean the job". Kim turned to look at Riele who was trying her best to avoid meeting his eyes.
  • "Fine then". He turned to face Riele with folded arms. "So Riele Grants, what do you have to say for yourself?". He asked as she turned to face him.
  • "Um...I don't understand the question". She told Kim.
  • "Do you think you're worth it?". He asked as Riele raised an eyebrow in confusion.
  • "I don't know what sort of question this is but if you're trying to put my worth on a weighing scale . I can assure you it's more than you can ever imagine". Kim must admit, he was pretty amazed.
  • "You want to work for me?". He asked still looking at her.
  • It's not like I have any other choice. Riele thought. "Of course...I mean who wouldn't?". She lied.
  • "Then first, I need a place to stay". He told her as she looked at Mr. Owen who was trying his best to avoid any conversation from you.
  • "I thought they made provision for that". She asked directing those words to Mr. Owen.
  • "They did, but it's not ready yet. I saw the place and I didn't like it so I told them to change some certain things. That's why I need a place to stay before then".
  • "Mr. Owen, I think he's directing this to you".
  • "Come on, Riele just let him spend a few days or weeks or months with you besides you stay alone". Mr. Owen said trying not to explain her mom's condition to him.
  • "I am sorry but there's no way I'm allowing him anywhere near my house. If he wants a place to stay, someone like him should be able to book a hotel or something not share a house with his P.A. Who does that?". Riele said and Kim smiled.
  • "I accept her as my PA". He said as he got up and left leaving Riele dumbfounded.
  • "See why I told you you're the right girl for the job?". Mr. Owen told her as she tried to process what the hell just happened.
  • Her head started aching. She pressed the two sides of her forehead gently, trying to suppress the pain a little.
  • She walked out of the office and what she saw shocked her. "Can someone explain to me what's going on here?". She asked. Charlotte pulled her close as she whispered in her ear. "Moving my things to where?". Riele asked.
  • "As my P.A, you are going to stay close to me. I don't want stress trying to reach you. Do you have any problem with that?".
  • Riele was about to complain when Charlotte pinched her. "Ouch!". she whimpered glaring at Charlotte.
  • "I'll take that as a no". He said and he threw a file to Riele which she caught. "Get me in touch with that person". Riele opened the file only to find a picture of Kim Utter. She stared at Charlotte whose eyes were glued to the file in Riele's hands.
  • "Can I know why you're choosing this guy?". She asked.
  • "Don't you think you ask me questions a lot?" He asked and Riele knew he was right. Ever since he came in, she has been questioning mostly everything he does.
  • "I'll get in touch with him right away". Riele said to avoid getting punished. Kim shook his head before walking to his office.
  • Charlotte couldn't believe her eyes, she wasn't ready to face him and here he is. What's she going to do now? "Riele, I'm not ready to face him yet". She told her. Riele pulled her into a hug.
  • "Then you don't need to. I'll try to see if I can talk him out of this".
  • "That will get you into a lot of trouble". Charlotte told her. Riele pulled her away a little so she can see her face.
  • "And you are worth it". Riele told her as Charlotte smiled.
  • "Thanks a lot".
  • "Like I said, can I punch Kim Utter when I see him?".
  • "If the need arises, go ahead". Charlotte told her.
  • "Let me try my luck with Mr. Handsome". Riele told her as she stood up and walked up to Kim's office. She could tell it wasn't going to be an easy talk based on his character but for her best friend, she was willing to try.
