First Day

My footsteps are very heavy as we make our way to the office with Fred. It was a chilly morning and my thoughts were on the first day.  I cannot believe I spent most of the evening finding something to wear only to end up with the first outfit I had picked out before.

"Seriously, you made us late." Fred says looking at me.

"I'm sorry. I overslept." I said.

"But you had a whole two weeks to sort your self out!"

"So sorry. At least we have made it there without any mishaps." I say convincingly.


We take the stairs of the main entrance to the office then the elevators. A second hadn't passed as the doors open up and we find ourselves on the second floor of the office. Fred motions me to go to the receptionist while he passes briskly and heads to the directions he sits on.

"Morning. I'm here for the job meant to start today." I tell the lady.

"Are you Catherine?" She asks while checking a file.


"Okay, welcome. Please have a seat while I prepare your desk." She says smiling.

She then proceeds to walk to the other end of the office behind a glass wall. I couldn't see her well so I took time to view the office well. After ten minutes or so, she came back and asked me to follow her.

"This is your desk. Feel free and the HR will update you on what to do."

"Thank you." I said as I moved closer to the desk.

The office was beautiful. I couldn't believe that I was having all this by myself. I sat on the chair. Put on the computer and leaned on the chair. The desk was almost bare except the notebook, few pens and a ruler.

Yes, I do mind.

"No, I dont mind." I lied.

"Alright. Just wanted to check up on ya."

"Wow, thanks for that."

"You seem surprised." He asked.


"Okay then, ill talk to you later."

"Thanks for calling."

I hang up the phone and looked at Ann who was looking at me suspiciously. She knew something was up.

"Who was that?" Ann asked.

"You remember Sam?"

"Which Sam?"

"My ex-boyfriend."

"Yea, where the hell is he?"

"I met with him the other day at the shops. So I invited him over."

"What? You can't be serious."

"Yea, he wanted my number but I didn't give him as Fred walked on us at the gate.

Ann let out a laugh. "What?"

"So he went but apparently he asked for my number and Mike gave him."

Ann gave a blank stare.

"Yea, Mike gave him my number."

"Mike should have asked you first but I think Sam just wants to be your friend. Things were tough for you guys but you should also move forward. Just talk to him and find out what he really wants. As for Fred, just be careful you don't confuse him by being close to Sam." Ann said.

Actually, I think Ann has made a good point.

When the phone rings..

"So you will pass by in the morning we go together?" I asked Fred as I was to report to work the following day.

"Yea, I usually leave the house by 7.20am so be ready by 7.15am." He replied.

"Okay. I'm so nervous."

"Don't be. Ill be there so ask anything that you are not sure of."


He picked up his man bag and started walking towards the door. We reached the main gate, gave him a hug and he left. He wanted to go and prepare for the coming week by ironing his clothes and to rest. He had been really busy this weekend with me.

"Hey Kate." Ann shouted from the balcony.


"You have a phone call."

"From who?" I asked as i raced up the stairs.

"I don't know. It a private number."

I wondered who it was but i got the answer as soon as I received it.

"Hallo?" I started.

"Hey dear."

"Who is this?" I asked.

"Can't you recognize the voice?" he said back.


"Alright. Its Sam."

"Okay, its a surprise! how did you get my number? I don't remember giving you."

"I'm good Kate. I got your number from Mike."


"Yes. I hope you don't mind."

"So what are we doing tonight?" Fred asked after we were done.

"I really have no idea. We can wait for Ann to come then we can decide." I replied while looking at the clock.

"Yea, that is a good idea." He said.

So I put on a movie and we started watching on the couch as we were waiting for Ann to arrive. It was around six fifteen and mostly she would have arrived. The movie was a rom-com about young couple moving into a new house in a new state and the issues they had to experience during the time. It was really funny and we were so consumed into it that we didn't notice Ann come in.

"Hey guys."Ann said while sitting down.

"Where did you come from?" Fred asked surprised.

"Through the same door you guys came in." Ann replied laughing. "Which movie is this?"

"I really didn't see you coming. I have even forgotten the name of the movie." I said.

"Its okay. It looks really funny."

"Yea, you will enjoy it. How was your day?"

"It wasn't that good."

"What's up? I asked.

"I had some issues with the human resource department in the office."

"So sorry."

"Its okay. It went well at the end."

"Ann, we were waiting for you. What do you think we should have for dinner?" Fred asked switching off the telly.

"Can we have it at the diner? I don't feel like cooking."

"Yes, we can do that too." Fred said kissing me on the cheeks.

"Oh, you guys should go to the room already."

For Second Round

As soon as we entered the house, Fred pressed me on the wall and kissed me hard. The long passionate kiss went a notch higher as we decided to take it back to the bedroom. Still in each other mouths, we rushed to the bedroom and undressed. His hot breath went down from my neck and down my body in a second. His strong arms held my body tight and could feel his was really ready for it. It was a really intense moment and later sex slept side by side listening to each other heartbeat.

"So, did you like that?" Fred asked.

"Yea, very much."

"Really?  Wanna go for another round?"

I smiled and shook my head. "Yes, but after i take something. I'm really hungry."

"You hungry because of the workout?" he asked smiling.

"Kind of." I said.

"Okay, lets get something to eat then we can go for a second round."

We dressed up and went to the kitchen. I decided to make a sandwich for both of us as I knew food would take much longer. I took the some stuffing from the fridge and combined with some slices of bread that were on the shelf. I gave it to Fred who was sitting on the chair checking his phone.

"Wow, that is the quickest I have ever seen a sandwich being made."

"Stop joking." I replied

"Seriously. Its like you had already prepared the sandwich and hid it."

We both laughed out loud.

"So how is work?" I asked.

"It was okay though I had so much work in the morning."

"So everything is okay now?"

"Yea, a little bit though we have to present some of the work tomorrow."

"Don't worry, it will be okay."

"I'm not worried about that. What about you?"

"On what?"

"You are soon starting work. Are you prepared?"

"Yes, am so excited about it. I can't wait."

"Good for you. So we go for the second round?" he asked after he noticed I finished my sandwich.

I laughed out loud. "Yes."

Someone aint happy

It was really getting late and I knew Ann and Fred might be coming home any minute. Fred wouldn't be too happy to find Sam around since he knew both our backgrounds. Thank God he sensed the same and asked to leave.

I accompanied him to the gate and gave him a hug before turning around to head back to the house, he tapped me at the back.

"Kate, can I have your number?"

This caught me off guard as I wasn't too sure he would ever ask for it.

"Yea. The number is..."

I was just about to give him when Fred walked in through the gate. He took one look at Sam, then at me and back to Sam. I had to think of something.

"Hey Fred." I said walking upto him offering a hug.

"Hi Kate." He replied and hugged me back.

Sam started "Hi Fred."


"I was about to leave so catch you guys later." Sam said and dashed out.

"Okay, see ya." Fred said.

As we were walking up the stairs, Fred asked "What was he doing here?"

"We met up at the grocery and invited him in."


"Are you okay with it?" I asked after I noticed he wasn't too happy about it.

"Yea, I'm okay."
