Mr. Brown holds up his hand to stop Nolan and his girlfriend's protest, clearing his throat as he stands up from his seat.
I could sense Barbie girl snarling beside me before Mr. Brown could speak.
"Nolan, how many times do I have to dictate to you Alexa's responsibility as your nanny?" Mr. Brown's tone ran cold, evidently losing his patience as he stared at Nolan intently.
"Father, how many times do I have to make myself clear to you? I don't need this bitch!" Nolan yells, loud enough to be heard by a few employees outside Mr. Brown's office.
"Calm down babe, it's alright. Let me handle this," His obnoxious Barbie girl cooed to him as she rubbed his heaving chest.
I look up at her in amusement after hearing her words and see her turning towards Mr. Brown to speak, Nolan had already sat down behind her noticeably gritting his teeth.
"No one calls me that, Dear, stick with Mr. Brown" Mr. Brown cuts her off, his stone remaining cold as well as his look.
"Alright- Mr. Brown, I hope you understand that Nolan does not need a nanny to look after him. He is fully capable of attending to himself-" Mr. Brown scoffs at her remark, catching her off guard.
"Kathrina is it?" Mr. Brown asks which Nolan's Barbie girl nods in response.
"You can call me Kathy, Mr. Brown" Kathy strikes him with a sickeningly sweet smile that made me roll my eyes.
"Kathy, I commend your loyalty to my son but even though you're the one speaking FOR him, I cannot trust your words," Mr. Brown's words made Kathy frown and I could tell she was trying hard to bite her tongue.
"You have every right to be jealous of Alexa but you don't get a say on what should be done to her. My final word and decision are done and she will reside in my house until I am done with Nolan!" Mr. Brown half yelled.
"Alexa is commanded by me, she follows my strict orders on keeping my son in check and I have observed that she has been, only Nolan is not cooperating at all"
He pulled out his cell phone and tapped briefly when a sound of a video played. My eyes shot up to his phone recognizing Nolan's voice.
"Get me a hot orange juice," Nolan's voice ordered on Mr. Brown's phone.
"How did you-"
"One of my staff is subscribed to your channel, they took the liberty to notify me the moment they saw Alexa inside your room in uniform and were concerned about how you treated her." Mr. Brown then stops the video from playing and puts it back inside his pocket.
"It was just a harmless prank!" Mr. Rude defended.
"Harmless or not, you forget how to properly treat people. Is this the kind of image you want to curate for the public? You make such a title for yourself online yet you don't even give a damn if it makes you look bad offline." Mr. Brown storms to his desk, taking a black folder and a pen.
"Alexa, I am afraid you have to choose between residing with us or quitting this job. It's a late notice of changes, but I will triple your pay to stay." His tone changed to a somewhat pleading one, handing me the folder and pen.
As I open the folder and see the contents, my eyes scan the contract that contains my benefits, responsibilities, and limitations.
"It says I can choose 4 weekends but not consecutively, what if I get sick and tired of Mr. Rude?" I snark, catching a glare from Nolan.
"Excuse me?" Nolan scoffs.
"I mean, you know, his attitude might tire my body... I was just wondering what would be done to help me recover?" I face Mr. Brown and give him a knowing look.
"Oh please, with that face you're already overdue from recovery," Kathy remarks.
"I can make a few arrangements when it happens, but you will be laying down in the mansion in the care of our family physician."
As Mr. Brown explained to them one by one the responsibilities with Nolan, Kathy had enough and walked out of the office.
"Nolan, tell your girlfriend to fix her attitude or I will have a word with her father." Mr. Brown says as he dismissed us took And took the signed folder from me.
'I don't have much of an option to make, so I'll have to explain this to Cody'
Nolan had already hurried off to his girlfriend who was glaring at everyone who walked by, though a girl her age stayed beside her and spoke to her quietly as they exchanged looks at me.
"Alexa, you go ahead and pack your things. I'll have a separate driver come to pick you up here and chaperone you to your house to pick up your things." Mr. Brown states his voice in a commanding manner.
I nod my head slightly and bid farewell to him as I walk out of his office. Nolan and Kathy had already gone ahead to the elevator.
'Oh my god, can these two get a room?'
My eyes scan both of them as Nolan holds Kathy close to him and gives her cheeks multiple kisses. She is trying to maintain a cold exterior but couldn't help but giggle at every kiss Nolan gave.
I blush as I see Nolan look at me as the elevator closes. Rolling my eyes, I got into another elevator and made my way to the waiting area for the separate car.
'Nolan seems so romantic and caring, yet he's being an ass whenever his Dad attempts to be closer to him...'
During the car ride, I couldn't help but imagine myself being held by Nolan as he did with Kathy. His grip on her meant so much endearment and it looked like he didn't want to keep her in a bad mood.
I shook my head to push the thoughts aside as I noticed we had already arrived.
"Just park here, sir, my place doesn't have any large parking space" The driver nods and parks by the side of the road near the pedestrian lane.
I quickly got out and walked towards the alleyway to our apartment complex. It's an abandoned building but Cody had already worked out the permit to operate it on his own, though the only tenants are his gang and us.
I wave hello to Adam and his comrade, David, and spot his girlfriend, Jade, kissing him goodbye.
"Hey, I'll catch up with you!" Jade hurriedly says as she races out of the alleyway before I could reply to her.
As I arrive at the front of our home, I knock on the door and hear Cody's footsteps.
"David, I know Adam's pissing you off but- Babe!" Cody exclaims, hugging me tightly.
"Why are you home so early?"
"Babe, I have to tell you something..." His look shifted to worry as I started to tell him what had happened.
"You don't have to worry about this, babe," Cody chimes, pouring coffee for both of us.
"Why? I am seriously going to get in big trouble if they catch me red-handed!" I groan as I take a sip of coffee.
"But you wouldn't be caught..." I shot him a look of annoyance before he sighs out.
"Alexa, babe... You can do this, trust me!"
"You can and you know why?" Cody holds my hand by the table and looks at me.
"Because this will be your way of revenge for putting up with that son of a bitch"
