I went to bed shortly after forcing all ridiculous thoughts out of my head. They made up for it by appearing in a nightmare. I witnessed Damon and that woman getting married and I just stood there crying. I screamed for them to stop but it was like they couldn’t hear me and he leaned in kissing her passionately.
That was when I jerked up in bed sweating lightly. I turned on the lights and sprinkled water on my face. After that, I went back to bed but I just couldn’t sleep. My eyes were shut but I was wide awake.
*The Next Morning*
I tossed lazily in bed trying to find the snooze button for my alarm. I ended up falling off the side of the bed and all evidence of sleep was drained from my face.
After that, I grudgingly prepared for a day at both Mr O’Cornner’s office and Van’s industries. I had to go over there once again because of the contract so I can only imagine how my day would go.
As I shut the door, the dream I had last night came into mind. I shuddered at the thought of Damon getting married to her. I didn’t even know why it would hurt as much as it did. I could feel the existing pain. I didn’t dwell on that thought too much because the cycle has got to end. I dealt with Van last night and possibly Damon so I’m moving on and living my life the best way I can.
I arrived at the office grabbing a coffee on my way, I had a strong feeling I’ll need it badly. I knocked at his door to inform him of my departure although I wanted nothing than to avoid him all day long.
He responded and I twisted the knob. He raised his head from the door scanning me slowly.
“Good morning Sir.”
I greeted curtly.
“There’s no one here.”
I quirked my brows trying to tell him the greeting was for him.
“I mean I told you to skip the formalities.”
He rolled his eyes chuckling even.
I nodded my head awkwardly.
“I just wanted to inform you that I’ll be leaving with your driver.”
“Oh, that. I handled it so you don’t have to go there anymore.”
He says with a tone of finality. His demeanor enlightened me about not asking anymore questions and just taking my leave.
“Alright Sir, I guess I’ll just go back to work.”
“Actually, I want you to cancel all my meetings for the day. I have someone I’m seeing today.”
My face scrunned in annoyance and I made no effort to conceal it.
“It’s a professional visit of course.”
He added making me straiten my face.
“Of course Sir, I’ll do that right away.”
I turned around to take my leave.
“Oh and Elena…”
I turned around hurridely.
“You look beautiful today.”
He complimented throwing me off guard. A large smile abrupted on my face.
“Thank you Damon.”
I nodded once again unable to stop smiling while returning to my desk.
The smile remained on my face as I cancelled all his appointments in anticipation for his guest. Half an hour later, I heard heels clicking towards me.
“That must be her.”
I thought to myself.
She said in front of me. That voice. I know that voice anytime any day. What is she doing here?
She added. Oh my God. More importantly, how am I going to face her?
