Chapter 6 Reject Her

  • She stepped out of the room to go home, she was about leaving the company when she bumped into someone.
  • "Sam! What are you doing here?!" she asked, smiling at him. She has been trying to talk to this guy, but he has been ignoring her calls. But there he was, smiling at her as if he haven't been avoiding her.
  • "I think I should be asking you that instead, I work here." The guy replied smiling back at her. "So what are you doing here?"
  • "I came here for an interview, I applied here as a marketter." She replied.
  • With a surprised expression, he asked. "you are here for an interview? Did you leave your previous job?"
  • "Yeah, it's a long story. How about we go somewhere and talk about." She said, suggesting they leave, so she could have time to talk to him.
  • "Ehm, I'm sorry I won't be able to do that. I'm so busy, how about we talk about this some other time."
  • "Hmm. Of course." She said, trying to hold his hands, but he removed his hands away before she could touch them. She knew he's just trying to avoid her, he has even stopped picking her calls but she can't just stop herself from thinking about him. He left her sight and walked away, she sighed and also leave the company, she entered the taxi and went home straight.
  • On getting to her apartment, she realized that her door was opened. she was so scared thinking that someone has broken into the house, but she musters her courage and went in. She saw a bag on the chair in the sitting room.
  • "Ellie! you're finally back." A woman, said coming from the kitchen. It was her mother, she finally sigh in relief when she saw her.
  • Mum, what are you doing here?
  • "What do you mean by that? Of course, I came here to see my daughter, since she has stopped coming to my place." Mrs loren lamented, she took the food she had prepared and set it on the table.
  • "Mom, you know that's not how it is, I've just been so busy." Ellie answered.
  • "So busy that you can't even buy fresh groceries in the house. You're not a kid anymore, so you try to take care of yourself."
  • "I get it, mom." She said, pouring herself a bowl of soup.
  • Ms Loren sighed before she continued. "How will you get or take care of your husband, if you're like this." Her mom knew that she doesn't want to get into any relationship, she has asked her so many times what was wrong with her, she has even set her up on different blind dates which have failed.
  • "Mum! Can you just stop now, I'm going to choke on my food." She said, almost begging.
  • "Fine, but that doesn't mean we're done with this discussion." Ms Loren said; while Ellie only rolled her eyes backwards. After lunch, they both wash the plates and clean the house. Her mom finally left not before talking, scolding and telling her to go to a blind date with a man she just got.
  • After her mum left, She took her and saw that she had missed a call from Jasmine. She called her back instantly. "Hey! I missed your call."
  • Yeah, how was your interview? Jasmine asked over the phone.
  • Well. It went well, guess who I saw today.
  • Who? Jasmine asked.
  • Sam. He's also working at Stewart.
  • Oh really? Jasmine asked, her voice getting low. She knew that her friend must be so happy to see him, but she's just worried about her. "Just be careful Ellie." She said.
  • "I'll be fine." There's nothing to worry about. Ellie assured, they also talked about some other things before they hung up.
  • she opened her gallery, looking at the guy's picture on her phone. she said. "I hope I get this job, so we can start working together as soon as possible, I might even get a chance to stop going on blind dates. Then suddenly, the image of her night flashed in her mind, she dropped her phone instantly and sighed. Ever since that day, she can't stop thinking about what happened, she has been trying to do things that can get her mind off it, but she just can stop thinking.
  • In a conference room, they were done with their meeting. The CEO of warren also came out of the conference room to go back to his office.
  • "Alex!" The man called out from the back.
  • What are you still looking for? I thought you left? Alex asked as soon as he saw him.
  • "Yeah. I came back." He replied, smiling at him. Are you seriously not going to look for her?
  • "When did you start caring so much about my life? Don't you have anything to do, or a company to run?" Alex asked, stopping a little to looking at him.
  • "How can you say that to me, I'm just trying to help. You know you can't do without her not after you've marked her Alex." Callum said, this time around with a serious face.
  • "I'm going to reject her." Alex said. He has also been thinking the whole day, he doesn't want to do anything forbidden, not when he's the alpha of his pack. I'm going to abide by the rules Callum. I can never be with that human, I and her are two worls apart that shouldn't have met.
  • "Are you joking with me Alex. You of all people know what can happen to that girl if you reject her after marking her. She may lose her life." Callum explained.
  • "Just stop, okay? Who knows, what if she's not even my mate, maybe a witch in disguise or the mark can actually disappear. Anything can happen, just stop stressing me and go to your company." He said, walking towards the elevator alone. "I wonder how a CEO can have so much time gossiping around." He mocked for him to hear.
  • Callum just stood there and smile. "You're going to come back and beg me when you need my help." He said, raising his voice, getting the attention of the people around.
  • He sighed, straightened his suit and left the company.
