Anya continued walking towards the entrance of the building. The guard just looked at her as well as the employees inside the building. She caught their eye and attention. Classy, pretty, and nerdy. She has the body too, plus the height minus the face mask that was on her face.
The truth was, she never wore it before. She was not used to dressing like an old-aged woman. But that was from the past, and she doesn't want to remember it. She loved her new fashion now, and it was enough.
Anya shrugged the thoughts off. Past is past, as they said. She continued walking until she reached the receptionist's location. She removed the face mask before she spoke.
She smiled instantly.
"Excuse me. Where is the interview for the applying secretary?" she asked politely to the receptionist.
The receptionist nodded her head and acted like she was thinking. The woman was estimated to be in her mid-thirties. Mirrored to the eye and with a strict aura. If she were not determined to work, she would be reluctant to approach her.
"You're hired," she said unhappily. She did not even blink. She just looked stoic as if she was an essential toy.
"What?!" she asked incredulously. She was surprised by what she said. Everything was just as easy. Who will hire an employee like that? She did not even search for her credentials.
With that in mind, she volunteered to show her papers. She presented her credentials to her, but she just stared at it. Then, the receptionist turned to her again. "No need. You're perfect for the job. You can start now."
Shocked. Anya looked at the receptionist. What was this woman saying? Maybe it was just a prank? Anya looked around. Everything was fine, so that they couldn't joke with her.
"Are you sure?" she asked again.
The receptionist nodded before handing her a piece of paper. "That's Mr. Monterio's office. He's expecting you."
She was still shocked by what the woman said. She was hired as Mr. Monterio's secretary in an instant. No effort at all. Very impossible.
"Thank you!" She picked up the paper and looked at it. Mr. Monterio's office was on the twentieth floor. It looked like her office was also there. She was about to start walking when the hotel receptionist spoke.
"Lucky bastard! Someone else applied!"
She ignored it and went straight to the elevator. She hit floor twenty and leaned her head slightly against the wall. Her day was stressful, but the sudden acceptance of her job was even more stressful. She just hoped her future boss was kind. But from what she heard from random people, Mr. Monterio was a ruthless businessman. He looked like a monster.
She was busy thinking when a man entered the elevator from the fifteenth floor. He stared at her for a moment before he continued going inside. She raised an eyebrow at it because he was watching her.
"What?!" she asked, annoyed.
The man ignored her and just smiled foolishly at her. He then received a double whip from her. When they stepped on the twentieth floor, they went out at the same time. Exactly someone called on her cellphone while walking. She immediately took the device out of the bag and answered it.
"Witch! Where are you?"
"Are you okay, Carla? Don't disturb me now. I'm doing something important," she replied. She even rolled her eyes as if she could see her. Carla, her best friend, was annoying.
"All right, you look busy! I will visit you once in your house while you live together. Get a life, Anya!" she said with a laugh before ending the call.
Anya sighed when the call ended. She kept walking, so she did not notice the bulk of the body in front of her. She collided with it, and she lost her balance. She expected to fall to the ground, but it didn't happen. She just felt her body being held by someone else. When she opened her eyes, a browned-eyed man had her waist to stop her from falling.
"Are you okay?" There is a concerning question about it.
"Yeah! Thank you," she replied while avoiding looking at him. She desperately stopped herself from blushing. She just didn't know if it was effective. She felt ashamed. On the first day of work, and she already looked dumb in front of this stranger.
"Good! By the way, I'm-"
The man stopped speaking when another man approached them. The same man she was with inside the elevator a while ago. His crazy aura earlier was gone. He looked severe and lethal. He looked scary and shaky.
"What are you still doing here, Montreal?" His loud voice roared all over the place. Anya was immediately shocked because of that.
"Relax, Andrius. I was just polite here." The man collided with her.
The man immediately turned to her, and as before, he turned her head to foot again. She also noticed his blue eyes.
"And who are you?" He frowned when he looked at her.
"I'm Anya. Newly hired secretary," she replied. She also raised an eyebrow at him.
"What?! You're my new secretary?" It was a shocking question to her.
Anya was surprised by his statement, but she did not budge. If her boss were rude, she would also be rude to him.
"Yes, why? You don't want to?"
The man who was with them laughed.
"Looks like I'm gonna visit you more often, asshole!" he said to her new boss before turning around. "Attorney Kraius Montreal, at your service," he said while offering his hand for a handshake.
She accepted that out of respect for him. He held her hand tightly and winked. Anya wanted to roll her eyes at him. This one was also a playboy, which she does not like.
"Stop getting to know each other. You! Get out of this place." At the same time, he pointed to Attorney Montreal. "And you!" He swallowed before saying, "Come with me and start your work," he told her before leaving.
Anya was just shaken. It looked like double stress would happen to her in the next few days of working at Monterio Empire. She still has a rude boss to work with.
