"Come on Skyler you can't let him make you feel this way every time you see him." I said pulling the covers down. Skyler had cried for the past two days and still looked amazing. Blonde-haired, and blue-eyed, Skyler was a woman who rarely looked anything less than absolutely gorgeous on any day of her life even the lowest.
"I really want to get over him." She pulled the covers back-up "But - He didn't even care to wait a few weeks to date that bimbo." She cried, hiding her face into her hands. I sigh and rub my friend's shoulders, trying to be supportive.
"How about I grab us some Chinese and a bottle of wine?"
Taking the elevator down to the first floor, I smiled at David my neighbour when he hold the door open for me, ever since I had moved in to the building every time we saw each other getting in or out of the elevator, He would flirt with me, it had never gotten any farther than that. He was a good-looking guy green eyes, blond hair, sexy dimples. As I waved goodbye I walked out and turn at the corner. I stop at the Chines take out place we so often order from, and order the usual. I took a seat and waited for my order, my mind was all over the place I couldn't get Elijah Blackwood out of my head, then who could after seeing a man as good-looking as he was. I didn't help it had been months since my last toss on the sheets, I had never been one to hook up with random man, every encounter meant something to me and I couldn't have it any other way.
Twenty minutes later I was back home and sitting in the living room floor waiting for Skyler so we could enjoy a quite night in with amazing Chinese food and turned on the TV to see the premiere of 'Satisfaction'. I needed to get her talking, It always help her see things from a different prospective.
Skyler came out of the room, her red eyes prove of how much she had cried. I couldn't stand seeing my best friend this unhappy. "I got you, your favourite." I smiled trying to lighten the mood.
"Thank, Ana you're always so good to me." She hugged me "What would I do without you?"
"You will never have to find out." I say, assuring her.
An hour later and a good share of laughs, the end credits came on and I turn the television off.
"Well I better get to bed tomorrow is going to be a long day."
"Are you nervous, for tomorrow?" She asked me, laying on the couch she turn to face me. "I'm happy for you. After all, this is what you wanted."
"Thanks Sky!" Skyler and I had met first year of law school, she had gone with Family law, but our goals were mutual. "I can't deny it, I'm nervous."
"You will do great, don't even worry about it."
"I will try not to." I smiled. "So don't forget about tomorrow, we need a girl's night out" I smiled and walked to my room stopping at the door frame. "I hate seeing you like this, Sebastian is a jerk and one day you will find someone very special who will actually deserve you."
"I know, I will pull out of this soon, I can't wait for tomorrow I am in need badly of a manicure." Skyler and I visit the spa often, and seeing her this upset, it was much-needed.
As I lay in bed, I picture him. Those beautiful intense blue eyes watching me, dominating me. The way his tongue poked out to lick his lips every so often. . .It was like Elijah Blackwood was a damned drug. God - I really needed to stop.
The following morning as I walked into the Blackwood & associate building, I regretted my choice of outfit. I had chosen my black pencil skirt, with a white long sleeve dress shirt. Black four-inch hills and diamond earrings and I had straighten my hair to perfection. As I got into the elevator, I was thankful for the alone time it give me. When I reach the twenty floor, I took a deep breath and walked out showing more confidence than I really had. When I reach Elijah's office I was surprise to find Linda 's desk empty, with her nowhere to be seen.
I swallowed past the tightness in my throat and swiped my damp palms down my black skirt. this was ridiculous. I was grown up and I could act professional. I straightened my shoulders, and knocked on the door.
"Come in" The sound of his husky voice, send a shiver up my spine. it was smooth, hinting at naughty sexy and mischief.
I opened the door and strode in with fake confidence. "Mr. Blackwood, you wanted to see me?"
"Yes, take a seat please."
The man behind the sprawling teak desk gazed at me with a strange mixture of warmth and surprise. Those piercing blue eyes sharpened, I could feel my cheeks turning red. His face smoothed out to a polite posture. His body was lean and trim, I could picture an impressive and sexy man under the sharp suit. Sharp cheekbones, and elegant nose, he was the image of a perfect beautiful man.
I smiled up at him. "Thank you, Mr. Blackwood."
"I have a meeting in ten minutes, so let's get right to it." His jaw clenched, and I'm suddenly worried.
" You will be working with Johnson, on a very important case, Mr. William's is a very Important Client, so I expect nothing but the best from you." I relax, realizing that is was nothing more then working with a client.
A knock on the door, interrupt him.
"Come in Johnson." He said as he stood up and reach for his a briefcase. He clapped Johnson on the back and turn to me. "You're in good hands."
Johnson smiled, "We will be holding a strategy meeting on some new developments, come with me my team is waiting for us." He turn and face me " You can call me Jamie, only Elijah calls me Johnson."
