Chapter 3 A NIGHT WITH MR BRUNO

  • **BEAUTY'S POV*"
  • Out of shock,I kicked at the blurred image,so hard
  • He freezed,holding a blanket,his nose was bleeding
  • I rubbed my eyes and looked properly,he only wanted to cover me up,I
  • "Am sorry,so sorry,sir,let me help"i offered,standing up from the couch
  • "am okay, don't worry ..take"
  • He threw the blanket on the bed and walked away heading to the door
  • He stopped at the door and threw the key at me,I had a smooth catch
  • "You can lock it from inside if you don't feel safe with me"
  • Still holding his nose, with his head up ,he left the room
  • I was sleepless
  • I sat down thinking about what I did to him
  • "What if I get fired for this,I didn't even know when he carried me in here,and he then wanted to cover me up,I stupidly hit him,what was I thinking,that someone like Mr Bruno may find me attractive and wanted to take advantage me?,what a joke !!am such a..
  • I cursed shamefully
  • I got up,there's no way am going back to sleep after what happened
  • I went to the Sitting room found him , trying to type with his still head up,it's obvious he isn't done with the works yet
  • He kept enduring the pain,then he got fed up and hit the desk so hard that it scared the shit out of me
  • Someone that gentle,I don't except such from him
  • He turned and found me staring,I quickly looked away,then stole a glance at him
  • He smiled a little
  • "You are not sleeping?"
  • I nodded
  • "I want to continue from where I stopped yesterday"
  • I replied
  • "It's okay,don't worry,go and rest,am done with the ones I gave you"
  • He replied
  • "O...k sir"
  • I felt really sad about that for some reasons,I slowly walked to my post and sat there, staring at him
  • He got a call
  • I wonder who that was
  • "Yh,I missed you too(chuckles,then sigh) really wished you are here with me,I love you Soo much,take care "he answered and hung up
  • I was curious to know who the caller's identity
  • Probably his girlfriend,I should stop dreaming of us being together as a couple,Mr Bruno will never find someoneike me attractive
  • He put the phone down and after typing for sometime
  • He left out a loud sigh
  • "Finally!"he snapped out
  • I guess he is done
  • "Congrats sir"i said with a smile
  • I took the opportunity to start a conversation
  • "Thanks"he replied
  • I gazed at the clock it's 5:45 am already
  • "I will take you home, thanks for your help again"
  • He said to me,I guess he is happy
  • I sadly nodded
  • We got to a shopping mall,he wanted to buy something
  • "What kind of gifts do your family like,I can't go to your place without buying a gift for them at least to appreciate your help lastnight"
  • I didn't respond,I was sad and angry for no good reason,I dont think its mood swings either ,for some reasons I got jealous cus the unknown caller
  • He was quite observative,and noticed that am not in the mood for that conversation, he got down and went into the mall,few minutes he cale with with shopping bags ,he stuffed them into the backseat
  • The journey started again, silently
  • "I think I feel comfortable with you"
  • He breaks the silence
  • I stole a glance at him,shocked at his confession
  • "I am an introvert,I hardly talk to people or maybe someone am sexually attracted to but I feel like I can talk to you,I have my insecurities too, everyone does cus no one is perfect so don't let what they say get to you"I picked up a line from his statement and threw the others into the trash
  • "I hardly talk to someone am sexually attracted to,you know he he he"he chuckled awkwardly
  • Well I guess am not on the list,tahts why he feel comfortable talking to me
  • I said in my mind sadly
  • I gave the directions without indulging in his conversation
  • "Are you okay?"his tone sounded worried
  • I nodded
  • "That black gate"I pointed to our house
  • "Alright"
  • We stopped at my place
  • "Thanks for tonight again"
  • I just nodded and got down from the car
  • **BRUNO'S POV**
  • "did I say something wrong?"
  • I asked myself in the car,calculating but I wasn't able to get the answer
  • Halfway home ,I remembered she forgot to take the gifts I bought for her family
  • Maybe she intentionally ditched it
  • I sighed and engage the engine
  • "There's something about her am yet to figure out,I find it irresistible yet I cant get hold on a particular thing"
  • ***THE NEXT DAY **
  • I walked into the company,I was the most punctual as always
  • "Good morning Mr Bruno!!"
  • Jessi greeted,she arrived in a few minutes after
  • I nod at her
  • She smiled back
  • "Good morning,Mr cutie!!"
  • That's Charlotte,our main custom designer
  • I smiled back at her
  • I went through the typed works yesterday and found out some errors from Beauty's works
  • "Dang!!,I have to make some corrections"
  • I snapped tiredly
  • Rubbing my eyes,I decided to get a cup of coffee before starting with the work
  • The same time
  • Beauty walked into the company,she dressed neat and modest,our eyes met,why will anyone in their right senses call her ugly
  • She's really attractive ,maybe am the only one seeing that
  • I waved off the thought of her and went for the coffee while she walked to her corner
  • Jessi went to talk to her
  • After making the coffee,I went back to my desk
  • I stole a glance at her
  • "Sir Bruno!!"
  • One of the models called
  • I was starled,I turned ,seeing who it was,I sighed with an eye roll,knowing her reason for being here
  • "What is it,this time Angela?"
  • "Did you send this to me?"
  • She showed me her phone screenshot,with wet eyes
  • I glanced at it back to her
  • "Ehhh..I...yes"
  • I scratched my ear embarrassed
  • "Why..but I really do love you Sir Bruno!!"
  • She burst out crying
  • It attracted the attention of others
  • "Am sorry Angela I don't want a relationship with you,let's not talk about it here"
  • I whispered
  • Angela was really shameless,and desperate too,the least of things she would care about ,is what people thinks of her
  • She don't care about the publicity or anything else, so she continued her confession
  • She went on her knees this time
  • "I couldn't sleep last night..all I was thinking was you
  • I got pissed,really pissed
  • "This is an office Angela!! can you stop this child play!!"I yelled out loud
  • **JESSI'S POV**
  • poor Angela,I warned her against it,Bruno is just too handsome,you can't help but fall in love with him,and his alsome personality ,he is really a heart breaker,I wonder if God will create ,a woman specially for him
  • he even turned lot of female celebrities down,even Nuliana Gomez,Angela is really crushing hard,but am rooting for my best though
  • I playfully hit beauty's arm
  • "Ouch!!!!"she cried out sharply flexing her arm
  • She started sobbing loudly
  • 'oh my gosh! beauty,did it hurt so much"
  • "Don't worry,am fine "
  • She replied without looking up then few minutes later
  • She got up and walked towards the restroom,I was worried maybe ,it does hurt and she lied about it
  • I followed her immediately
  • "Beauty am sorry,I didn't know...
  • "He friend zoned me!!"
  • She started crying like a child
  • I paused confused,my brain cells freezed trying to get her,then finally understanding what she was saying ,i amused at first,but then watching her crying,in that manner,I was touched
  • I hugged her tightly and pecked her forehead
  • "Hey don't kill yourself for him,you will get over it just like I did"
  • I whispered
  • "He said he feel like talking to me,but he find it difficult to talk to someone who is sexually attractive,Jessi am that ugly!!!,I mean whatever i understand am not his type ,am fat and...why do I even care."
  • I chuckled sad
  • "Hey look bae,one thing I know is,Bruno maybe handsome,nice etc but you deserve more than that,if he don't want you,don't force it,you will get hurt in the end ,you are beautiful beauty you are just the only one that can't see it"
  • "I understand that you want me to feel good about myself, jessi but am not f**kin blind,I can see me ,myself, all of me from the mirror reflection and I know what I look like"
  • She just smiled back
  • "Maybe you should look at you from my view instead "
  • She hugged me again,brushing her fingers through my hair
  • I sobbed more
  • After some minutes silence
  • She pulled me out,and dry my face with her palms
  • **JESSI'S POV**
  • Consoling Beauty takes alot of energy ,jeez all this is because of that handsome heartbreaker, suddenly a thought crossed my mind
  • I smiled devilishly at it
  • "but to come to think of it,why he so stiff with girls,maaaaybe,hd is gay!!"
  • "What?
  • "Isn't it obvious,that's why he is soo good looking..
  • "What are you saying!,it isn't ,am sure he is not
  • "Well...... really?how sure are you?"
  • "Ever seen him with a girlfriend?
  • "No..
  • "Any rumors about him being spotted with a girl ?
  • "No but I heard him talking to one on the phone,I guess..
  • "come on!!bea ,it maybe family member, I know its painful ....
  • "Can we change the topic now jessi"
  • "Well am insisting on the idea of him being gay...
  • Beauty being little bit homophobic this time, looked at me with a frown
  • "Don't say such things about Bruno,he won't indulge in such"
  • "Come on come to think of it,our queen of seduction Kathy can't get him,then is either he is impotent or gay,let's spy on him"
  • I said excitedly
  • "What!!
  • "Best You and I will make good detectives,spies,our mission is to find out if his arsenal is working I will find out if he is gay"
  • 'am out of here"
  • Beauty covered her ears and turned to go
  • I held her back
  • "Don't act virgin,you've been with him,I think he trusts you,get to his house,find some excuse to get there,then early in the morning check it out"
  • "Jessi you are nuts,why don't you do that'
  • I slapped my forehead
  • "Am helping you best...,but I know you will not agree to it easily,I will try and do this myself"
  • I sneered
  • "Good carry on"
  • Beauty said sarcastically
  • "And you are doing it with me?"
  • Just then we overheard avoices from the restroom opposite room ,the male restroom
  • That's his voice
  • Bruno's
  • "Is that Matt talking with Bruno?"
  • Beauty asked in a whisper
  • I knew it,we listened more attentively
  • Matt always act feminine,he is obviously gay,he is cute too,they will make a fine couple
  • I thought
  • "Ok darling I will meet with you tonight"
  • Matt voice replied ,he sounds flirty, with his nasal tone pronouciation
  • Hearong him say that ,bea and i gasped same time and looked at eachother
  • "Do they share same bathroom?"beauty asked disgusted
  • "Actually they took quite long in that bathroom"i said with a long grin on my face
  • imagining weird scenes
  • "Jessi!!,ewwww, stop your immoral thoughts, that's gross!!"
  • Beauty hit my shoulder
  • I chuckled
  • "I told you,he is one of them,so bad ,we missed another mr perfect to the ass people"
  • Beauty was disgusted
  • "It might not mean anything,I mean we are in the same bathroom,we are not lesbians,we maybe exaggerating this,they're co workers they can use same..
  • "Shhhhh"i suddenly snapped at her
  • She stopped talking
  • "Is that not a moan that I just heard?"
  • I said putting my finger on her lips
  • Then we heard the moan again
  • "What the...
  • Beauty tried to scream I was fast to cover her mouth with my palm
  • "Shhh,listen "
  • I scolded her in a whisper
  • "Does it hurt?"
  • Bruno asked
  • My enlarged eyes stare into beauty's,she put her hand over her mouth overwhelmed
  • "Ouch!"Matt moaned again
  • "Am sorry it's my first time doing this does it hurt much?"
  • Sir bruno's voice asked
  • "Yes,but am good,can endure the pain,dont worry "Matt said in between moans
  • "It's really tight am sorry"Bruno replied
  • "Its okay, am fine,you can continue babe"
  • "Babe?"
  • Beauty and I whispered,and listened
  • "The bleeding should have stopped by now"
  • Beauty started throwing up in the toilet
  • i rubbed her back
  • Beauty just ruined everything, great they now know,we are in here
  • There was silence from the other room
  • Finally she stopped vomiting
  • "Beauty and Jessi I know you guys are in there"
  • Bruno's voice came
  • We stared at eachother, not knowing what next to do
  • "Let's go out,he knew we are in here"i whispered
  • "No let's wait till they leave ,I cant face them"
  • Beauty whispered back
  • "Come on dont be such a child,we all adults what the big deal,we jsut promised not to tell anyone about their secret relationship "
  • "But jessi...
  • I cuts in
  • "Am going beauty ,you can come out later"
  • I came out of the bathroom, with my cheeks red and a long grin on my face,the two stood there looking at me
  • "Hola "I waved at them
  • They said nothing
  • "hehehe"i giggled awkwardly
  • Few seconds
  • Beauty shamefully walked out of the bathroom,her face down,she went and stood at my back
  • "Can you help with the first aid boxJessi...?,Matt cut himself ,I came here and found him,wailing like a toddler,you know he is usually immature and soft, sobbing like a child ,I tried tying it up to stop the bleeding,I tied the cloth really tight and it hurts him more Instead
  • We looked at matt,still holding his bleeding finger,still moaning with his feminine like voice
  • We stood there for while,our braincells trying to get the whole thing,Beauty's face was priceless
  • "Ouch!!,babe please do something please"
  • Matt cried again
  • That's right ,matt call frefwr to anyone as darling,babe etc,how did I forget that, and Sir bruno?,he was just helping him with his injury

  • "Alright,,alright, I will do just as you said "
  • "That's my baby"
