"No, I didn't." I tried to deny it but my stupid face gave off and he jumped from his seat.
"Holy fucking shit! Dude, you banged her. I fucking knew it. No wonder there is an awkward tension between you both," he squealed and had a look of shock and surprise on his face.
"Shut your mouth. Jesus, Ryan!" I exclaimed and looked around, hoping no one heard us talking about my sex life.
"I can't believe you didn't tell me, man. I thought you were still hung up on Rebecca. When did this happen?" he asked me, more curious than mad and I let out a huge sigh.
"It was on the day of Rebecca's wedding. I was at the bar and Samantha was there too. We kinda hooked up after a few drinks." I paused and he kept looking at me expectantly.
"It was just a one night stand, dude. I didn't even know her name back then." I defended myself and he shook his head.
"Not that, dipshit. Tell me the details. How was it?" He whispered, making me grimace.
"You are disgusting, man."
"I thought we were bros," he gasped dramatically and I rolled my eyes.
"Yeah, we are bros, not girls." I sat down on my seat and turned on my computer.
"I was just curious. You should totally fuck her again," he suggested, not taking his eyes off his screen.
"Not gonna happen. I was sad that day and just wanted a distraction. I'm totally fine now." I explained as I kept working.
"Yeah sure," he scoffed and continued, "Dammit, now I gotta back off." He muttered and I looked at him in confusion.
"Bro code and all. You had her first and now she is off-limits," he explained and for some reason, I felt relieved. It was not like I was going to go after her but at the same time, I didn't want him to go after her. I shook my head, trying to get her off my mind, and continued with my work.
"This stays between us. Not a word to anyone, " I warned him and he made a gesture of zipping his lips while I shook my head with a small smile.
"Hi Nate," I heard Amy's voice and looked up from my food. It was around noon and Ryan and I were having our lunch in the cafeteria.
"Hey, Amy. What's up?" I asked, trying to sound cheerful.
"Do you mind if I sit with you guys?" She asked hesitantly and I didn't know what to say. I kept staring at her for a long time until Ryan kicked me from under the table, making me wince a bit.
"Su--sure, sit down." I smiled, glaring at him.
"So Samantha just informed me that I should be working with you for a couple of days," she started and my eyes went wide.
"Why?" I blurted, earning another kick under the table. Ryan mouthed the words 'Be nice'.
"Uhh...I work at the back end," she gave me a nervous laugh, tucking her hair behind her ears and that's when it struck me.
"Oh right, sure. We can work after lunch or something and start discussing," I replied, stuffing my face with my burger.
"Great, I'm so excited." She giggled, touching my arm lightly.
"I work in the back end too, Amy," Ryan spoke and I mentally thanked him for drawing her attention to him. I mean, she was a nice girl and all but I didn't want her to think I was interested. They continued to talk about random shit that I had no idea about while I remained silent, eating my food my peace.
"I didn't know Ms. Perez eats here too," Amy whispered, looking behind me and I turned my head so fast that I almost sprained my neck. She was sitting all alone, eating her food, and kept going through her phone just like the same way she did that day at the bar.
Dammit, why do I keep thinking about it whenever I see her?
"She is so amazing and down to earth. I heard that she turned down David's offer to have a secretary." She continued to speak.
"But she is ruthless when it comes to work," I mumbled under my breath.
"Of course, she has to be ruthless. That's what makes her the best." Amy kept gushing and for a split second, I wondered if she had a crush on her also.
"Woah, turn away. She is looking at our table." Ryan whispered and looked down at his food. I couldn't help but laugh at his behavior.
We were acting like a bunch of teenagers getting caught by the principal.
"You got ketchup on your...umm," Amy pointed to my face and I tried to wipe it but she raced me to it and wiped the corner of my mouth, licking the tips of her finger. Ryan looked at me, raising an eyebrow.
"I'll see you at your cubicle, Nate. Bye, Ryan." She smiled at us and stood up to leave.
"God, I'm single as fuck." Ryan sighed when she was out of sight and I chuckled, punching his arm.
"You can totally have her. No bro code and shit with this one," I raised my hands in defense.
"She has eyes only for you though," he grumbled and we both stood up to leave.
"I'm zero percent interested in her," I assured him.
"You didn't say the same when we spoke about Samatha which means you are interested in her," he teased me while I smacked his head.
"Fuck off!" I cursed and looked behind me one last time to see if she was still there but her seat was empty.
In the next few days, Amy and I continued to work together. I actually found myself enjoying her company. Maybe we could be good friends. Ryan also joined us and we were having so much fun. I didn't see or talk with Samantha after that day and as much as I tried, not think about her. It kept bugging me.
"You should have seen the look on his face, it was priceless." Ryan continued to laugh, telling Amy one of my embarrassing stories and I laughed along with them.
"Mr.Wilson?" I heard a familiar sexy voice and turned around to see her standing near my cubicle. I stood up immediately.
What was she doing here?
Was I in trouble?
"Yes, Ms. Perez."
"My office. Now." That was all she said before turning around and kept walking.
"What are you staring at? Go!" Ryan nudged me and I rushed out if my cubicle, straightening out my shirt and tie.
"Close the door!" She said with no emotion in her voice and leaned against her desk. I took small steps towards her and noticed that she was wearing a grey shirt and black pencil skirt, her olive skin looked so smooth and sexy and she had her hair up in a bun which gave me a view of her slender neck. A few strands of hair were hanging loose, framing her face.
God, she was beautiful without even knowing it.
"When I told you to work with the back end team, I expected you to work and not waste your time flirting with them," She opened her smart mouth and I shoved my hands in my pocket as a small smile crept on the corner of my lips.
