Devil’s Bride Episode 17


Hazel’s p.o.v

He didn’t assign me much work to do before telling me to go home saying I was scaring the hell out of him with my panda face.

Whose fault anyway?

And I think it was really nice to watch him almost have a heart attack when I popped in his office later that morning to remind him of a meeting scheduled for 8am with a client.

I got home at 1pm and spent hours sleeping.

When I woke up, I prepared myself something good to eat.

The dark circles were still visible but I felt so much refreshed.

Feeling better than I had being in days, I drove to Benedicta’ place in the evening to spend the weekend.

Benedicta is my highschool friend. I never knew she was in Washington until we bumped into each other at the shopping mall when I went to get veggies a month ago. We exchanged phone numbers and we have been keeping in touched.

“Good evening, Ms. How may I help you?” She asked upon opening the door but I scoffed instead.

“Evening,” I gave a short wave with a smile.

She gasped.

“Is that you hazel?” She asked with disbelief.

“Were you hired to be killed? How could he make you work until you are this way. I really do want to kill him right now.” She spurted with clenched fists, looking quite furious.

We were now in her living room.

“He was also scared when he saw me this morning and allowed me to get off work before 1pm. How are things going between you and Jake? You guys went on another date yesterday right?” I tried to change the topic.

“Yeah, we did. Hazel, if he is too hard on you, just resign and I will help you with finding a new job.”

“You don’t know how many times I have thought of resigning within the past few days but if I resign who knows how my next new boss is going to be like.”

“You are right but still- And you shouldn’t have bothered stressing yourself to come here. You could have just called me to come over to your place. Did you eat before coming or do you want me to get you something to eat?”

“No need, I ate before coming. I’m sleeping over, is that okay?”


I went to bed early and when I woke up the following morning, Benedicta was not beside me.

She was inside the bathroom brushing her teeth. I joined her. Looking in the mirror while brushing, I noticed that the dark circles were almost completely gone.

That same day, micheal, called.

Micheal is a new guy that have been asking me out recently.

but, so I don’t seem to be leading him on on what was never going to happen, I decided to make it known to him that I had issues I was dealing with which would make getting into a relationship other than being just friends impossible.
