It had been over nine months since I came here, and soon my final exams were coming.
It would have been held in two to three months.
I could tell the time, because I was counting days.
I liked it there. My life was going on perfectly, but there was an emptiness.
I knew what that was, my family. But there was nothing I could do.
I had to wait till I was eighteen, and founded my mate, or another way is if my brother became Alpha and I could go back to my pack.
After another three months and one year, I would have been eighteen.
And after another two months of my eighteenth birthday, my brothers would have reached the age to sit on the throne.
Ariel would have been 25, where Aries would have been twenty-three.
On Ariel’s twenty-fifth birthday, he would become the Alpha.
“You just have to wait for few months. It’s only seventeen to eighteen months. Bear with it.” I tried to calm my heart thinking all of this, thinking I will be back soon.
I was in my college.
My classes were over, so I was going back to my apartment when I heard Marina’s voice.
“Anne, are you going home?” Marina came running to me.
“Yes.” I waited for her to reach me, and she tried to catch her breath as she came to me running.
“I heard you are searching for some job?” She asked, and I looked at her confused. How did she get to know?
“Oh, I heard you talking with Johnson.” I realized I told Johnson to let me know if he had any part-time job to offer.
Johnson was our classmate and orphan. He continued his study by doing part-time jobs, and if there was a new job available; he was the first person who had the news.
“Yes, where I worked before the owner died. His son is selling the cafe. So I need a job.” I told her the reason I am looking for the job.
“OK. I can give you a job.” She said, and I gave her a confused look.
“You?” I said, and she told me the reason she is offering me a job
“Not me. My brother was searching for someone, to work as his secretary. So if you are interested, I can talk to him about you.” She said and I was happy that she was thinking about me.
“You know my brother. His previous secretary left her job or you can say he fired her.” She said, and I became worried.
“Why?” I asked, and she gave me a smirk.
“Actually, you know girls these days. They think, as long as you get to cling to someone rich, their future will be secured. But my brother despises these types of girls.”
“But I don’t have any experience,” I said worriedly
“That doesn’t matter. You will learn. As long as you don’t try seducing him, he will not fire you. You can learn slowly.” She said with a smile.
I look at her offended, “You think I am some kind of slut, who will flirt with any boy?”
“No, I didn’t say that don’t feel offended. I was just joking. But my brother is so hot the girl can’t resist his charm. You know this is the third time in a month that he fired his secretary.” She said with a sigh.
“Really?” I asked shocked
“Yes. I know how you are. I mean, you are beautiful and any boy will fall for you. But you never look at them. So I am sure you will cope with him.” She tried to reason.
If I wouldn’t have known how she was, I would have felt bad. But I knew she talked without thinking, but her heart was pure.
“Don’t worry, I will not flirt with him. I am waiting for my mate,” I said in a joking tone, and we both smile.
“Aww, So cute. You know my brother is also like you. I mean, he doesn’t say, but I know he is waiting for his mate.” She said proudly.
“My mother says mate is the best gift you can get in your life,” I said, and my eyes clouded with tears. I miss them.
“Right, you never talk about your family. You are a werewolf, so you may have a family in your pack. Then why do you live here in between humans?” She asks curiously.
“We will talk about it later. Tell me about the job.” I said try to avoid the topic.
“OK. Right. Go to this address.” She gave me a card, “Just tell them my name and you will get the job.”
“OK, and thanks, I needed this.” I hugged her, and she hugged me back.
“Don’t mention. You are a good girl and serious about your work. I know you will be perfect for the work. And I am just worried about my brother, so in both, I win.” She said, and we parted our ways.
I got ready to go to the office.
I had already applied for leave in my college.
I told them; I needed to do a job to afford my living.
As I did well in my last semester, they told me they will accept my leave.
I just need to attend the exam if I can manage both. But with the condition, I wouldn’t neglect my studies.
I just agreed with their condition.
I knew I can manage. After all, I couldn’t afford to miss my scholarship.
I knew the money mom has given is enough for my food and clothes for this year.
But I didn’t want to sit idle and spend all the money.
After all, I didn’t know what was waiting for me in the future.
My mom told me everything will be fine after my brothers became alpha.
But what would I do if they also thought like my dad?
I loved my brothers, and I knew they will never do something like this. But power can make people do everything.
The person who wanted to give me to the man was also my father.
So I couldn’t trust anyone blindly.
I just had to be established, so that I didn’t have to depend on anyone in the future.
When I went to the address, it was the central point of the town.
Though I was new to this town, I knew in this part of town, only the topmost companies in the country can afford to set their office.
After all, it was the most expensive part of town and also the country.
When I entered the office and went to reception, I saw a girl sitting there.
I went to her and introduce myself.
“Hello. I am Andrea Jackson.” I gave her my name.
“How may I help you, mam?” She asked me with a sweet smile.
“Marina sends me to come here for the job of secretary,” I said and she recognized me.
“Oh, you are here for Mr. Clark. Yes, Miss Clark informed me. You can take the elevator and go to the eleventh floor. You will meet Jane there. She will take you to Mr. Clark.” She gave me all the details.
After a simple thank you, I left for the elevator.
When I reach there, I saw another girl sitting at the reception desk and doing makeup.
“Hello, I want to meet Jane,” I said politely
“Oh hi, I am Jane. Nice to meet you. You may be the new secretary of Mr. Clark? You’re really beautiful.” She said all of this in one breath.
I smiled and look at her awkwardly
“Come, come I will take you to him. He will be thrilled to see you. After all, he will get some relief from his work.” She said again and of course, in one breath.
She took me, or you can say pull me, to a door where Mr. Clark is written, and knocked.
We entered after we heard a simple come in from inside.
When I entered, I shiver at the cold air coming from the air conditioner.
I wrapped my hand around me to feel warm, and looked at the person sitting in his chair, wearing a gold rim glass and reading some documents.
“Sir, this is Miss Andrea Jackson. Marina mam sent her to work as your secretary.” Jane said with her jolly accent.
“OK Jane, you can leave. I will take from here,” he said in his sexy voice and kept his file.
He took off his glasses and kept them at his table and came toward me.
Marina was not joking.
He was steaming hot.
He was wearing a white shirt which was not doing justice to his body, as all his muscle is trying to come out of it.
Then his golden-brown hair, which is falling neatly on his forehead.
And his blue eyes were so attractive that you could get lost in them.
Then his lips, which were so sexy that anyone would want to bite them.
He was a perfect sculpture of a man, whom God has made with his own hands.
He cleared his throat, and I came out from my Lala land.
“Miss Jackson right?” he asked
“Yes,” I said and nodded
“Let’s sit so we can talk.” He showed me the couch, and sat on his separate sofa beside the couch. I sat on the couch and now I was facing him, and waiting for his questions.
“So you are in the same college as Marina?” He asked.
“Yes. We are in the same major.” I replied slowly.
“Then if you take this job, what about your college?” He asked concerned.
“I have talked with them. I will have to just attend the exam,” I replied.
“Cool, then you can join from tomorrow, if you are Ok with the job. You can talk about another thing with Jane, and you can discuss your salary with the finance department.” He said and stand up to go to his desk.
“You don’t want to know anything about me?” I asked surprised.
I thought he would attack me with a ton of questions but it was so easy.
“Marina had recommended you. I trust my sister and about work you will learn by time,” he said and went back to his work.
When I felt I was no longer wanted there, I stand up and went out of the room.
I met Jane, and after doing all the things I needed I went back to my home.
