“You should call the security and get yourself out of this cabin ! It’s my company and its my cabin where you stand.” I said arrogantly, moving towards her.
“Now may I know why you are here?” I asked her again looking down to meet her eyes.
She was at loss of words.
I know she wanted to say so much but didn’t know where to start.
She opened her mouth but just stared at my intimidating eyes, she stopped again and gulped before saying…
“I didn’t know you were Mr. Madrigal…. Good evening Sir, I’m Hazel.. your new assistant”.
I find it so annoying and lost my temper on how fast hazel changed her behaviour.
“Just how LOW can you people go to get free money. ALWAYS LOOKING FOR AN OPPORTUNITY TO CATCH RICH GUYS’ ATTENTION!!” I spat in anger, holding hazel’s hand tightly.
My eyes were red.
“You don’t have to remind me of my financial position all the time we meet.” Hazel starts slowly and I tightened my grip on her hands.
“Ahhh you are hurting me..” Hazel said struggling to get out of my hold.
I released my grip with a jerk.
“You just want money nothing else! I have seen a lot of your kind.” I said looking down on hazel.
“Yes I need money and that’s is why I am doing this job. I’m not begging for money… Everyone needs money…”
I scoffed and moved back while hazel continued,
“So please stop with your mean comments” I said as I sighed tiredly.
“Ohhh drop the act b!tch !! Firstly I know you are not here for just the ‘job’ … And secondly I don’t even think you are capable of being my assistant. When I know you will run away within a week why would I keep you here even for a day !” I said stiffly.
“Why do you judge people so easily Mr.Madrigal . I was told you would like my working.” Hazel said in defence.
“I don’t think so and I don’t want to know. You can leave me alone. This job is not yours!” I spat again.
“NOoo….. Its always you who decides. I don’t even know what I did in the first place for you to not treat me fairly. But I won’t leave without any reason or any mistake of mine !!” H
She said determined.
But her eyes said different things from what she was saying.
I’m sure one more mean comment and she will break down then and there.
I just glared at her.
“Come to think of it, who even hired you in the first place?” I asked with a raised brow.
“Didn’t you hear it from Mr. Dawson? He hired me.” She said feeling like even her presence was questioned now!
I am cold but I know Dawson only employ intelligent folks.
I closed my eyes to calm down.
“Okay then we will see tomorrow.”
But I couldn’t let hazel go that easily.
“For now you have to sign a contract that you won’t resign for the next month or else you will be fined with 500,000 dollars.”
Her eyes widened.
“what if…. What if you fire me for no reason” she asked.
“I won’t ! I will sign here too and thats much more worth than that amount.” I replied with arrogance.
“See you tomorrow at ten AM.. you can leave now”.
I bowed down and left the room.
I kept glaring at her till she was out of sight.
I collected my (alex’s) car from the company park and drove home.
I was not sure if I did the right thing to sign that contract or not but I surely knew I hardly had any choice.
Its already fifth day tomorrow and only gifteen days are left for me to earn and send money home.
I slept talking to myself that day.
‘Tomorrow is going to be tough.’
