The knowledge brought fear into my body. I quickly lowered my head to apologise but couldn't voice out anything.
My body just kept shaking. Before you know it, a lot of workers stopped to watch me.
From the corner of my eyes, I saw the man behind Mr Zed whisper something into his ears. He started moving, my fears increased when he got closer to me but reduced immediately when he walked pass me.
I look back to see him walking out from the company and it looks like he is answering a call.
Oh good heavens! Moon goddess! I'm fucked.
How can I be this clumsy? I couldn't even apologize for bumping into him?
My body kept shaking as everyone that has gathered around started leaving. They kept mumbling inaudible words to themselves which of course I heard.
*That little bïtch. How can she be so stupid?*
*Haha, she's really lucky he got distracted by that call but I don't think she'll work here anymore.*
*She looks so stupid, how did she even get in here?*
Tears started gathering up my eyes as I heard those words.
Hell, I'm still sitting on the floor.
I made to stand up but noticed someone approaching me. The guy from earlier, the one that had told me that my phone was ringing.
He lifted me from the floor before pulling me away to a room I could call storage room.
"Moon goddess! Serena or what's your name. How can you be so.....?" He paused when he noticed tears streaming down my eyes.
"He could have just fired you when you haven't even fully resumed. You are a werewolf. I have never seen a werewolf so weak and clumsy," he huffed out after saying those words.
"I..." I tried saying something but couldn't voice out anything.
"You should stay here for the main time. Well, at least until the tension outside is gone. The CEO has given us the permission to resume work but you weren't there with us. So much trouble on your first day," he clicked his tongue at the end before leaving me alone to cry my eyes out.
Why? Why me? How can I be clumsy? Why am I this weak? I thought and cried seriously.
I got home feeling so down, so sick. I wasn't allowed to work today because the CEO hasn't given me the permission to work with them and considering what I did to him at the company today. Will I ever get a chance to work there? I doubt it.
I dragged my weak legs to my small room, I dropped myself on the bed before covering my body with the duvet. My body hasn't calmed.
My wolf got so scared when she perceived his scent. She has been scolding me non stop for bumping into him.
I closed my eyes trying to get some sleep but couldn't. I kept tossing and tossing about on the bed but sleep wasn't forthcoming.
I sat up on the bed when I heard the car hones outside. My sister is back.
I don't need another nagging tonight. Please, she should spare me that. I feel so hot and cold at the same time, I might really fall sick in this state.
"Serena! Serena!!" I hear her loud voice screaming my name and knew that I was in another trouble.
She bursted in through the door and comes to pull me by my hair out to the sitting room.
"You fool! You disgraced me at the company today. Why on earth did you spill coffee on our CEO'S suit? Are you nut? Have you really gone nut you silly thing?
Why did mom give birth to a silly thing like you as my sister? Why? I hate the fact that you are my sister a lot. You disgust me. You disgust me a lot.
I was only trying to help you work but you only ended up disgracing me. From today onwards, if you see me at the company act like you don't know me. Don't ever call me by my name. I don't wanna get mixed with your misery or I fear I might become miserable like you. Do you hear me??" She scream her last sentence into my ear.
I bobbed my head in responds to her. Ashamed of what I did.
She huffed loudly before storming into her room.
"Hey clumsy girl, what did you do again today? Why is your sister so mad at you?" My step father asked, coming out from the kitchen.
"It's nothing," I mumbled in reply to him before running back into my room. Not that he will console me after learning what happened, he will support his daughter for insulting and bringing my spirit down.
Why did mom die giving birth to me? I hate the fact that she died. Yes, mom is a human, my sister is also a human but my father is a werewolf.
I wonder if mom were to be alive, will she always console me at a time like this? Will she be proud of me as her daughter? Or will she be disappointed and always infuriated by my weakness, ugliness and clumsiness?
I throw my weak self back on the bed. I noticed fresh tears rolling down my eyes but wiped it off.
I should stop crying.
*Yes stop crying. Everything will be okay* I hear the same voice I always hear consoling me.
Sleep eventually took over me after a while.
I opened my eyes the next day. My eyes went to the wall clock to check what time it was, my eyes widened after seeing that it's 7:30am.
Fück! I jumped down from the bed and ran into the bathroom, had a two minutes bath before coming out. I ran into my small closet to pick out a gown that was not too bogus or too tight. The gown looks better than the one I wore yesterday.
After that, I rushed out to the sitting room to see my sister Kate walking out. I followed her out with the hope of asking her to give me a ride since we are heading to the same destination.
She unlocked her car and made to get in but I stopped her.
"Kate," I called. She turned back to stare at me.
"What?" She snapped eyeing me angrily. I ignored her look of anger.
"Can you..can you give me a..."
"No!" She snapped at me before getting into her car and riding out.
I sighed then looked at the time again.
I rushed out to the roadside in hope of taking a cab to work today. I stood by the roadside close to 15 minutes before seeing a cab. I quickly flagged it down then entered.
I told the cabby man my destination and he drove off.
I got down from the cab after giving the cabby man almost all the money in my purse. I never knew cabs charge a lot.
This is my first time taking a bus. I always walk or take a bus to my destination. I've never taken a cab before.
I rushed to the company but was stopped at the entrance by the guards.
"What do you want?" One asked glaring at me like I offended him.
"I am one of the newly employed workers here," I answer truthfully.
"Where is your card?" He requested.
"I don't have one," I answer. I remember seeing the others with a pass card. They were all given yesterday after getting permission from the CEO.
"Then you can't enter until you get one." The security guard shook his head in refusal.
I looked pass the guard into the company to see Kate.
"Kate! Kate!!" I called attracting her attention. She has to help me get in, that way I'll be able to see the CEO and possibly get permission from him to work here.
She turned to look at me.
"Please help me. They aren't letting me in," I pleaded.
"Do you know her miss?" The security guard also turned to ask Kate. Kate beamed smiles at him then shook her head.
"No, I don't. She must be a fan," Kate replied the guard before leaving.
I gasped out and moved back. A little surprised by her actions. She knows that I have to get in for me to start working here.
Yesterday I couldn't get permission from the CEO because she assigned work to me. She also told me that the CEO wasn't coming to work. Did she lie to me?
Did she possibly do that to me purposely? To her own sister? All the words she said to me last night and before, so she meant all of them?
That means she hate me. She hates me a lot.
"You'll have to leave this premises miss. Please leave," the security guard shooed me away.
"I really have to go in sir. I work here now please," I voiced out but he kept pushing me away.
"What is going on here?" A familiar voice asked. The voice sounds so powerful.
"Good morning ma'am," the security guards bowed in greeting.
I turned to look at the lady they were all greeting to recognize her. She is the one that asked us to stay in that room till the CEO comes for us.
"Ma'am she is distracting the others, claiming she is a worker here." The security guard pushing me away replied her.
"I am, I am a new worker," I faced the woman fully to defend myself. Forget my weakness, I need to get this job. I need a life.
The lady's eyes settled on me after my words.
"Where is your card? They must have given you one. where is it?" She demanded.
I swallow tightly as I thought of what to say.
Should I tell her that I disrespected her by leaving that room yesterday?
"I..I.. I couldn't get one. I wasn't opportuned to see the CEO yesterday," I answer dreading what she was going to say.
She kept looking at me with a blank look on.
"Follow me," she orders after some time and start walking into the company. The guards gave way as I followed her slowly.
Every worker we came across kept greeting her, making me wonder who she really is. What is her position in this company?
I followed her up to the floor her office was located.
"Good morning ma'am," her secretary greeted with full smiles.
The woman only nodded at her before getting into her office. I also followed her in.
Getting into her office, my mouth fell open in awe. In this an office?
Moon goddess! My eyes settled on the medal tag her name was written on.
Vice president. Madam Lucas.
Vice president?? Oh my goodness!
Am I seeing correctly?
I watched as she sat down behind her big desk.
"So why didn't you get a pass? Where were you when the others met with the CEO?" She questioned glaring at me. Her glares are not too harsh tho but still harsh.
"I..I was called by my sister to sort out clothes. I told her that we were asked to remain at the room you asked us to stay but she told me that the CEO wasn't gonna come to work yesterday," I explained truthfully. There is nothing to hide anyways.
No doubt this woman looks fierce, so scary. Her aura shows that she is a werewolf. An Alpha to be precise.
"You shouldn't have left that room in the first place." She said scoffing. It's clear that she is annoyed but something tells me that she doesn't hate me.
Although she is acting harshly, I feel kinda free with her. Probably because she is a werewolf like myself, but a higher one at that.
"He will be in his office in few minutes time. When he comes, I'll send you to him. You'll be going with his coffee, that is the only way for you to meet him again after missing your chance." She announce after a while.
