I got to work today feeling tremulous.. I didn’t know what to expect from smith.
Will he act all smug?! Or rub it in my face?!..
I entered my office and sat down.. I couldn’t concentrate on anything.. I continued to fret.
I felt a hand on my shoulder and jumped.. I looked up and saw smith.. I expected to see his usual annoying grin, but what i saw shocked me.
Tenderness. I looked at him, my mouth bobbing like a fish out of water. How did i not hear him come in?
“Sam, good morning..” He rubbed his hands down my back softly.. What game is he playing? I wondered.. ”why did you just leave like that yesterday?” He asked me like that’s the usual way we act towards each other.
“Get out of my office this minute Smith. And be rest assured that im not interested in whatever games you are playing,. Get out this minute!” I screamed. I stood up and pointed at the door ” leave now, we’ve always been enemies and I’d trust a snake before you, now get out.” I said..
He just continued to look at me, saying nothing and started advancing slowly.. I looked around in worry and started shifting back until i felt the wall hit my back.. ”what are you doing?” I whispered..Why am I whispering? Im supposed to be screaming at this bastard.. What game is he playing???
He continued to crowd my space until his chest was touching mine.. ”if you scream for help, nobody can hear you..You know its only our office’s that’s on this floor..” He murmured.. As if he read my mind.
He looked into my eyes, and i felt something spark in me..he gently and slowly lowered his head, with the obvious intention of kissing me.. He gave me plenty of time to escape, but i couldn’t move. I feel rooted to the ground. He gently took over my lips and kissed me slow and deep.. He was coaxing me to open up.. I slowly opened and kissed him back..
We continued kissing for what felt like an eternity, but im sure was just some few minutes.. He slowly withdrew his lips and kissed my forehead.
Will you go out to dinner with me? He whispered.
I looked into his eyes and felt desire swirl through me.. I feel so torn. I don’t know what’s happening.. It’s like everything is changing without my knowledge.. I can’t believe i never noticed the beautiful brown flecks swirling with his iris.. They look so stunning.. I looked at his lips and felt like biting them..
I tried my best not to burst into laughter.. Oh my God, she looks so adorably confused and indecisive.. Im sure she can’t decide yet if im being serious or just toying with her.. I decided to tip the scales in my favour because my whole plan hinges on her accepting this date tonight..
“How about we just stay in at my place and i cook your favourite food? I asked. She looked at me in shock.. “How do you know my favourite food?” I smiled inwardly.
Samantha is a course I’ve studied for the 2 years we’ve been working together.. I know every thing about her, her emotions, expressions, nuances, moods and everything.. I convinced myself it’s because i know the way to hurt her better.. The more you know someone, the harder the pain when you hurt them..
Of course, i didn’t tell her all this.. I just said offhandedly… ”You’ve mentioned it once before at an office party..” She shrugged it off and i saw the moment she capitulated.. ”ok, i will come for dinner tonight”.. I felt like shouting but i just maintained my cool..and i smiled beguiling..” thanks for accepting dear, i wish we can get over this rivalry and make something better out of our relationship.. ”
She just looked at me strangely and i know she suspects something, but hey, The trap has been sprung.
