Crushed by donsimoniiblog: 10:14am On Mar 01, 2018
Crushed chapter 1
I ran my fingers through my hair out of frustration. It was happening again,except that I really loved Elvis so much..meeting him was the most wonderful thing that ever happened to me. We just started dating and so far, it's been five months...never kne what made him dump me exactly but once more I read his text and felt like all the butterflies in my stomach had just died.
I rolled off my bed feeling like a complete failure. And then i remembered the second guy I was dating along side with Elvis (yeah I know what you're thinking but trust me.. Its complicated) Travis yeah...that's his name. Bad boy,sexy,had eyes that could make any woman his... At least he's still with me but I loved Elvis more.. Oh the devil knows I would do anything to get him back. I sluggishly walked to the bathroom to shower before anyone noticed I was crying even though I looked like something that escaped from hell.
Ahhhhh the feeling of cold water on my skin eased me a bit and I think I believe it now when people say showers are the greatest therapists.
I had fifteen minutes to get ready for Quincy's party.. I promised her I wouldn't miss it for anything in the world.. That bitch has been with me through my thick and thin..times when I was good, she was there..even when I mess up, she'd still be there comforting and encouraging me. But I don't wanna talk to her 'bout Elvis, I won't be able yo survive 4 sentences without crying. I hated it whenever I got emotional in public. I got off the shower and to my room so I could find something Comfortable to wear to the party.
More memories of him kept coming, I turned up the volume of the music station to stop me from thinking about him. I want to forget him. I needed to.

Re: Crushed by donsimoniiblog: 12:06pm On Mar 02, 2018
I finally arrived at Quincy's after been held up by the traffic. It was damn hot and I regretted wearing a hoodie. I mean like, which normal 20 year old lady wears a hoodie to a party? Oh wait, I know; ME.. The hopelessly cute but not so cute Gabrielle who got dumped for no reason apparently.
"Hey girl!! I've missed you so much, why the hell haven't you called?" Her squeaky voice cuts in my thoughts.
"Oh! hey cupcake, I'm so sorry I've been caught up with work and my phone was dead. I'm really sorry. Happy birthday sweetie" I lie hugging her tightly and playfully hit her arm.
"Thanks bee, c'mon let's get in.. I have someone I want you to meet!" She tells me holding my hands, her blue eyes brightening up like a kid who's just been given a candy bar.
"Ohhhkay " I say awkwardly.
We giggled as we walked into the house, it was indeed a party. Except that I was tricked into coming early so I'd help her get things ready.
"Wow, Quinn I love everything about your house! It's so homey, so comfortable, so..."
"Quit the act Gaby, we both know you hate the pink paint" she cuts me before I finish my peccadillo.
"Oh please, black is a beautiful colour..yeah that reminds me, I'll be staying over for the weekends. I uh, need a break from things at home" I say gently pushing a hair behind my ear. I always did that whenever I'm worried, I can't seem to know why. I hoped she didn't notice but (sigh) I was wrong.
She gently dropped the glass cup in her hands, walked over to me " Gaby...what did he do?".
I looked at her, surprised at the words. Are you kidding me?? How on earth did she know its a guy problem? It's not just that but,how the hell?.
"Hey, if you don't wanna talk about it right now, its fine. I understand. It'll be alright okay baby girl?" She says hugging me.
"Thanks" I hug back.
Hours later, the house was filled with lotsa people. Hot, crazy people. Girls dressed in what I could barely call clothes, revealing their cleavages,Short leather shirts. The guys... Oh well at least they looked decent.
"I love you so much Gaby but you can't party in a hoodie and leggings.. Honestly, no no no girl. Uh uh". Quincy the fashion goddess states with her hands on her hip looking like one of those Fashion Police
I look at her then at my outfit then at her again and finally said " okay, perform your magic on me lady!".
Off we went to the dressing room, she picked out a black short gown and a black net leggings for me. Didn't like it at first but she's got quite a convincing tongue.
I was really good at making myself up so I did a light make up. Drew my brows, concealed 'em, put on a light brown and black eye-shadow, hinged eyeliner, then a lip gloss(which I end up licking off) and viòla! I was looking alive again.We took some selfies then hurried down to the sitting room.
Quincy got a call and was all giggly. We managed to go through the crazy girls dancing to Run up by Major lazer and Nicki Minaj . Boy, do I love that song but I was in no mood for dancing right now.
Outside seemed so cold and I started to get the sudden need of my hoodie.
A car drove passed us into the garage while we just stood there waiting for God knows what.
"They're here!!" She said enthusiastically.
"Wait, who? What now?" I asked still trying to remember why I even followed her in the first place.
She laughed and dragged me along with her, walking over to the car.
A very fine thing came out of the driver's seat dressed in a suit( yeah a suit to a party... I hope she says something 'bout his outfit cause I can't be the only one in this fashion game)
His blonde hair that suited his skin tone. He was impeccable.
"Hey babe, I'm so sorry I'm late..I had to pick everyone else up and Chelsea here, took hours to get ready" he explains to her with a peck on her cheek.
She hugged him and shook her head.
A girl quite my age who I think might be Chelsea got out the car with two other guys.
"Oh! Pardon me, guys meet Gabrielle my sister from another mother. Gabrielle meet my boyfriend Edwin and his friends; Chelsea, Jake and Luke"
We all exchanged pleasantries before heading back inside. I must say, they seem fun to be with. We drank, talked and ate until Quincy and Edwin left us to have their Alone moment.
Jake was all around Chelsea which gave me the impression that they're dating. Well good for 'em. I found myself thinking about Elvis again. Then I took another sip at my drink, staring into thin air.
"Um.. sorry to stop your day dreaming but I need a direction to the toilet" A thick British accent made me freeze.
I fake a smile "n..no I... Wasn't day dreaming and besides, its 7:30pm" I say as polite as I can.
"Mmmh..I understand but please feel free, its your world" Luke says again and I noticed how hot he looked. His blue eyes, his brunette hair that fell slightly in his face, his perfect brows...Our kids would be angels.. Wait, what? Kids? Why? Would he? Even... I need to get away from here I think I'm having a reflex.
"Uhh.. Sorry. Yeah, toilet. Of course" I say finally standing up.
I had to take him there definitely. I wasn't good with giving people directions.
Not too long before the party was over and I was left to clean up alone because Quincy had to see her friends off. I managed to finish everything before she got back. She seemed pleased. Didn't stop complimenting my house cleaning skills.
We talked for a while about her relationship with Edwin, how they met and all then I got changed hugged her Goodbye and left her place by exactly 10:54pm. Lord knows I needed that Party. Need to loose some negative thoughts. I was tired as hell.
Immediately I got home, I took a shower, and went straight to bed

Re: Crushed by Parollawd(m): 9:26am On Mar 03, 2018
CRUSHED Waking up to the sound of my alarm clock wasn't one of my favorite things to do. It was 5:30am already and I felt like I only closed my eyes for an hour. I looked out my window for a while, as this was my morning routine. Rolled over to the other side of my bed to check my phone for any calls or texts from you know wh o. None. I got off the bed to the bathroom, quickly took my bath, did my make up and was ready for work.

The office isn't far from my house. Just four blocks away so I didn't take my car. I worked as a janitor. Its been a year since I got the job.

Mom had been working her ass out to make ends meet in the family,Dad on the other hand was not helping matters. He would steal money from mom and go to gamble it all away. Sometimes, I wished that he had died a long time ago, but I didn't want my mother to loose the love of her life. No matter how hurt he made her feel, she had never stopped loving him. I pray he realizes that before it's too late.

I decided to help mom out with the financial status of the family. I pay for my brothers (George and Alberto) fees in school, I make sure that I send money for food stuffs before the end of every month. It isn't easy but I do my best to make sure that my family remains happy and satisfied.

"Good Morning pretty Elle" Billy greets politely like he always does.

I smile "morning Billy, you sleep well?" I responded.

"I sure did" he tells me while running off past me.

I smile again. Shaking my head. He's always in a hurry to nothing.

I got into the janitor's room, got changed into my uniform giving myself a little pep talk. I put my hair in a pony tail. Picked up my brush, mop and dust pan then headed to clean the reception.

"Good morning Rosie" I greeted the receptionist.

"Morning dear, uh.. You heard about our new boss?" She says dropping her pen like she'd just remembered something important to do.

Anytime I feel like snooping, I just go over to Rosie's table. Trust me when I say, women are the best story tellers.

"New boss? Nope. But please, do tell" I try not to sound savage.

"Well, Of course!. He is pretty young to be a boss. I mean where'd they even find him?" She looks at me expecting me to answer her question.

"Oh Rosie, I have no idea. Uhm... can we talk later? I need to go clean the boardroom." I tell her with a smile trying so hard not to look disrespectful.

"Okay dear." She said responding to my smile.

Its a wonder how smiles are contagious but that doesn't work on me.

I hated cleaning the boardroom. It's got lots of chairs and that does not make my job easy in any way.

I was almost done until I felt a presence in the room and when I turned, you wouldn't believe who it was. Luke??!!!

What in God's name is he doing here?? This must be a dream! It had to!!

I was about to loose my balance if it wasn't for the chair behind me.

"Hi, we meet again" he says with his incredible thick British accent and a smile.

He's got dimples.. Lawd! This man was like a Greek statue. His jawlines so perfect, his broad shoulders fitting into his suit. No no.. I need to stop these stupid thoughts. I barely know him.

"I guess so, good morning. But what are you doing here? I haven't seen you around as a worker. Do you work here?" I ask walking over to my materials trying not to fidget.

"I work here now, yes. As your boss" he says with a smile again.

Was he trying to flirt? Why is he smiling so much? And hell no!! Why does he have to work here? The least thing I wanted in this world was for any guy to know where I work and what I worked as.

"Okay good. Gotta go though. Bye" I walked away as fast as I could without looking back.

"Wait." He ordered

I froze then slowly turned to see him walking towards me.

"You forgot your mop" he said handing the little devilish object to me.

"Oh..." I laugh nervously

"Silly me, I'm sorry about that. Thank you" I said before leaving him standing there.

This isn't going to end well. I watch this in the movies. Your new boss who you kinda know and starts hitting on you. Threatening to fire you if you don't do whatever it is he wants you to do. And then you'd turn out to be a sex slave! Eeeek! No freaking way! I need to start searching for a new job. And quick before he tries any funny business.

CHAPTER 4

"Are you kidding me?!" Quincy said, her eyes gleaming with glee as she clapped her hands excitedly.
"Why the hell are you feeling bubbly? Look, I don't know what that guy is up to. Showing up at the office as my new bos s. Really?? Quinn I'm getting a new job" I say standing up from the bed.
She laughed so hard I thought she had lost one of her nuts.
"Honey, you like him" she told me with a smile.
What? Like him? Why? I think he's weird. Sure I like the way he looks as a normal person but not in a way of crushing on him. I'm not so sure I'd love another without the fear of being dumped again.
"You're crazy. I do not, I repeat Quinn... I Gabrielle Salvador, do not and will not ever like your weird friend Luke" I said indignantly.
"Okay let's assume that you do not like him. Yet. Then why do you wanna get a new job?" She asked in a more serious way now.
Why do I wanna get a new job? Hmm... I don't hav any important reason though but something about that guy makes me feel uncomfortable. Call me judgmental but guys so perfect like that, are just players.
"Hello, Missy! Gone to the dream world so soon? Or you just realized you do like him?" She teases.
"Honestly, I just don't like him. That's all" I said.
" okay, whatever.. you hungry?" She asked with a calming smile.
" 'Hungry' is an understatement, I'm famished!" I sa throwing a pillow at her playfully. She giggled and we left for the restaurant. I can't remember the last time I actually went to the restaurant with someone I usually eat alone. Quincy was always around, yeah but some times I feel like I bug her a lot.
The restaurant was indeed classy. This was a place you'd go with your lover not best friend. It had classy chandeliers, the waiters were nicely dressed and so polite, the tables were wonderfully arranged with black table clothes on them. Oh it looked so lovely.
I wonder if they're still hiring.. No, not now. I won't change my job just because I feel uncomfortable with a stranger. First thing tomorrow morning on my way to work, I'm getting a taser. I don't know why I haven't gotten one. I get off work late and walk down home.. It's been settled I'm definitely getting a taser.
"Quinn...how'd you find this place? Its so lovely!" I say pulling my seat out.
She giggled "well It's all Edwin..This was where we had our first date and where we had our first kiss a a couple" she said happily picking up the menu.
"Urrrgh.. Love is messed up.. Too messed up, it makes me sick. I'm gonna eat whatever you're eating" I say dropping the menu when I couldn't understand what I saw in there.
"Why would you say that?" She said with so much confusion in her eyes. Then I remembered I hadn't told her about Elvis. Well it's better out than in so I told her everything she needed to know, how it felt like a prank but it wasn't, how every night I stay up late thinking he'd call but none.
"I'm so sorry that had to happen Gaby, he doesn't deserve you. It's a good thing he left anyway, I never liked him". She told me holding my hands.
Never liked him?? She must be joking. Everyone loved him. His perfect choice of words. His looks, his uprightness and his love for religions..he was just 100% for me.
" yeah..please let's order already! I don't want to di of starvation " I said pushing away the thoughts of him.
We took hours in the restaurant, Quincy was a slooow eater. I love eating with her 'cause I get most of hers, but in this case I needed to be home early. I needed to rest and get ready for whatever tomorrow brings.
I dropped her off at her place and went over to mine.
Getting to my building, I saw a male feature but couldn't recognize the face.
Who could that be in this late hour? What the hell does he want. Why didn't I get that taser on my wa back than waiting till tomorrow.
I grabbed my bag and few stuffs I bought, got off th car.
"Hey baby, why'd you leave me in the dark all along? No calls or texts" he said walking towards me with open arms and I recognized him. Travis.
I totally forgot he existed. We only saw when I wanted us to. He hardly comes over to my place for God knows why.
He looked like he'd had rough days too. I liked him but the love was gone long ago when I caught him messing up with some chick at a party I wasn't supposed to attend. I wanted to break it off with hi then but I felt he might die. Don't ask me why.. He just so vulnerable to anything that comes his way.
"Oh.. hey you, I'm sorry bout that but you see, I've been busy" I try to explain to him.
"Too busy to make time for us?" He said slowly coming close to me then grabbed my bottom.
I felt irritated and insulted and the same time. Did he come all the way here to sleep with me? He's crazy. Real crazy. And this has to end tonight!
If he's thinking he can come here and try to sleep with me, that ain't gonna work. He's not having it. Never!
"What are you doing here?" I said, getting his hands off me and walking towards my door.
"You mad at me?" He asks looking at me as I walk past him.
"No, I'm just asking." I answer turning to look at him once more. Contemplating my decision to end it with him tonight.
He walked over to me. Cupped my cheeks with his hands and gave me a kiss on my lips. It felt longing calming. A part of me needed a break tonight, a part of me wanted him into my home.
"Stop" I said pushing him away and walking towards the door again.
"What's wrong with you?!" He yelled.
I just hated been yelled at especially by guys. Travis is one hell of a guy, he's got quite a temper.
"You need to go Travis, please just leave." I said to him not looking back.
"Gaby, do you love me? I mean like, do you still do? Because I don't understand you attitude no more. It disgusts me. I came here to fix things up. Give you a night to remember..."
"And then walk away??!!" I yelled cutting him off and turning to look at him. My eyes felt like they were burning, burning with anger.
"If I disgust you, then please get out of my life. Because I have tried to put up with your games and all you've ever done was make it more complicated. But no Travis. I am done! I have so many other things to do now. You don't support me in anything do, you don't call unless I do, you don't even care if I'm okay or not!! Don't you dare come here talking trash to me! Don't you!!" I yelled again, tears flooded my eyes and I couldn't stop them.
"That how you want it huh??" He said with a chuckle.
"You're gonna regret this! No one would ever love you! You ugly selfish bitch!" He yelled back before leaving..
I stood there crying at his words. He always murdered me with words. But I'm so glad he's gone I don't need him. I don't need any guy in my life. Not now, I can do without them. I've been fending for myself ever since I got out of mid school. Life has been tough for me but it's making me stronger everyday. My house, my car, those were all gotten out of my hard work and more are yet to come.
I grabbed my keys, opened the door. Turned on the appliances, arranged the things I bought. I took a long bath, thinking of everything that happened tonight and hoped it was the last boy drama I'll ever face.

"Uuuhhhh..m..my head" I grumbled trying to get myself up. I think I might have gotten a headache from crying last night. I checked the time. Past 7.. poo! Past Seven??! Did my alarm get broken or what? I rushed into the bathroom, turned the water on while I quickly brushed my teeth.
I can't believe I'm running late, that has never happened. I've been punctual ever since I was a kid Lateness was not my thing. I'd get to school before any student.
I couldn't put on any make up, there wasn't time for that. Now that I've got a New boss, I don't know what punishment I'll be given for arriving late at work especially as a janitor. Oh no, what if he suspends me or even worse, fires me.
My heart pounded so fast now I couldn't concentrate. I put on some jeans and a hoodie (my love for hoodies though) with sneakers.
I had to go with my car now just to make sure I get there before 8:20. I drove as fast as I could and by the time I got there, seemed to me like they were having a staff meeting.
I got off my car, ran over to Rosie who was surprised to see me turning up late.
"You look like hell" she said a smile.
"Well, good morning to you too Rosie" I said, adjusting my trousers properly.
The meeting lasted for about thirty minutes and just as we were all leaving the room, I heard that Britis accent again.
" Gabrielle Salvador? I would like to see you in my office in twenty" he said in a formal way.
"Y...yes Sir" I said anxiously.
Hmm he didn't smile, didn't call me Gabby that felt..odd. Or what if he's actually being so formal 'cause he wants to suspend me for arriving late today? I felt my blood thicken and my hands get cold.
I went over to my locker, changed into my uniform then headed to his office. But before I left, I said a little prayer, hoping it wouldn't be a suspension or anything worse.
I knocked twice at the door, no answer.
"Sir, it's Gabrielle Salvador, you asked to see me" I said aloud.
"Oh, do come in dear" a voice responded from inside.
Dear? Who's he calling dear? I opened the door to see him busy with lots of paper work.
"Please, sit." He offered.
"Thank you Sir" I said pulling the leather chair out.
He carefully closed his pen, arranged the papers then folded his arms staring at me. This went on for few minutes and I felt really uncomfortable. I almost asked 'what? Trying to find your sense of reasoning?'.. I kept my eyes fixed on the ground, my hands gripped to the chair.
"You okay?" He asked breaking the silence.
I look up at him, why was he asking such a question? Do I look that bad? Now that I think of it, I didn't get to look at my reflection before leaving the house.
"Yeah I guess, why do you ask?" I say pushing my hair behind my ear.
"Its just that you don't look so good, are you sick? or did you have enough sleep?" He asked again.
This guy has got to be kidding me. Was this why he called me up to his office? At least its not a suspension.
"Thank you for your concern but, I'm really fine. Jus tired. That's all." I tell him with my hands still gripping the chair. I need to leave. I don't like been around this guy.
"Okay, if you say so. You don't have to be afraid to tell me whatever it is that bothers you, you're a friend of my friend so that makes us friends right?" He said with a wide smile.
Smiles aren't contagious to me but his, got me smiling back.
"Yeah, sure. Friends." I laughed at his words.
"What's funny Gabby? Tell me" he said sitting comfortably in his chair with one hand on his chin.
" Well I don't know anything about you, Sir." I say folding my hands.
"What's up with Sir? You're making me feel old. Its Luke, please just call me Luke okay Gabby?" He insisted.
"Even at work?" I ask
"Yeah, it doesn't matter. Anyways I called you in jus to find out if you're okay. You didn't look quite like what you looked like each time I see you" He said.
"What did I look like?" I asked in a serious tone.
"You look beautiful. And today, you looked sad" he said standing up.
"Okay" I responded quickly. Standing up too.
"I'm sorry, but I have to go. I haven't uhm.. cleaned the restrooms." I told him hoping the discussion of
me would end but no.
"Why did you choose to work as a janitor?" He asks blocking me from making any other move.
"T...that's private. See you after work though." I said with a smile walking towards the door.
"Yeah we will" he said with a smile.
What the hell was that? Calling me up to his office just to check on me? Really? Friends? Telling me I'm Beautiful. This is getting awkward.. Thank goodness it's Friday, I won't have to see him or be alone with him till Monday. Urrgh! I hate this!
I mumbled to myself as I worked. Washed to toilets, put in new toilet papers. Honestly, this job was getting strenuous everyday. I thought by now I'd be used to it but I guess my body is quite different. It doesn't get attached to things.
"Hey Rosie" I greeted slipping into a chair like a lifeless thing.
" oh poor you, he must've given you double works. But why were you so late? Its unlike you" she said looking at me pitifully.
"Uhhh yeah he did." I lie
"I don't know, I guess I was just so tired and my alarm clock broke" I explained
"Okay, that's understandable" she said
"That's my break..gotta get back to work. Thank God its Friday! Get your party spirit on Rosie!" I say dancing my way out.
I had to wait for everyone to leave today since it's Friday, I need to clean up before going home.
Once they were all gone, I plugged in my earphones and danced while I worked. One of my favourite things to do.
My dancing was rather funny. I had my own moves and preferred fast rhythms.
I tried to do the moonwalk but I ended up tripping. I thought I heard a laugh. I removed my earphones, turned around there was no one. Nuh uh... I had to leave, I'm not the kinda person who'd go searching for the sound like they do in horror movies. I had forgotten to get the taser this morning so I had nothing to protect myself with if I was attacked.
I ran to my locker changing to my clothes. Immediately I opened the door, I saw him.
"Christ!! Luke! What the hell? Are you trying to give me a heart attack? I say hitting his chest.
He only laughed harder and I recognised it. Had he been watching me all along? I didn't think anyone would be here. Its 8:30pm and wait..why was he still here?
" What are you still doing here? Shouldn't you be home?" I said walking towards the hallway. He followed.
"We were supposed to see after work, remember?" He said with a smile.
"Oh yeah true, but its really late and I need to rest" told him while we got outside.
"Tomorrow then? Edwin's coming over to Quinn's maybe I could join him." He said as if looking at me for approval.
Oh great, just when I thought I wouldn't see him, he breaks that wall off.
"Okay, that's alright." I say walking towards my car.
"Thanks, see you then. Have a wonderful night." He said before walking over to his car.
"You too, Luke" I responded.
I got into my car. Waited for him to leave first just to be sure he wouldn't follow me.
I drove over to Quincy's. I didn't have any other clothes for tonight or even tomorrow but that didn't matter, we wore the same size.
I called her up to open her door.
"Hey, I thought you were gonna arrive earlier, you okay?" She asked, taking my bag from me and talking me over to the sofa.
" why does everyone keep asking me that? Do I loo that bad? I'm fine, just tired. I wish I could tell you all about work and Luke today but honey, I'm tired and of course..." I stopped to notice her smiling broadly.
"Hungry" we said together giggling.
She prepared a quick food for me. I ate like 2 plate extra. I had a dreadful appetite.
After that, I took a shower and fell into deep. I couldn't think of anything I was dead exhausted.

Chapter 6

click for full story
https://www.donsimonii.com/search/label/CRUSHED?

I watched Quincy as she raided her wardrobe of what to wear for Edwin's visit. I don't get why she' getting all worked up. I mean its not like they haven't met before, they have..countless times. I don't see the need for a lady to raid her closet just because she wants to look attractive for a guy, that doesn't mean you have to look unkept, no. I feel yo should just be yourself and if he loves you for it, good. If he doesn't, still good.
"Aren't you gonna help me?!" She screamed throwing clothes at me.
I giggled "Nooo but I know what I can do" I say, winking at her.
"Make me up?" She asked anxiously.
" yeah but not now. I'm gonna get something to eat and.." I got up walking to the kitchen.
" I had a weird night at work. Luke called me into his office to ask if I was alright. Urhk! I don't know what his plans are, but I ain't falling for it. He said to come over with Edwin today." I said loudly from the kitchen. Made a cereal and got back into the room.
"Did you even hear me?" I asked with a spoonful of cereal in my mouth.
"Yeah, yeah.. Listen, Gabby" she turned to look at me, hands folded.
"He just wants to know you. Hang out with you, become your friend. That's all, Okay?" She said calmly and slowly.
"Whatever.. I don't need any more friends. One's a company, two's a Party. " I replied with a smile.
After turning her room into a total disaster, she gav up and chose to wear her skinny jeans with a tank top. I made her up as promised.
We ate breakfast together then decided to watch TV till the visitors arrived.
"Did I tell you I had a fight with Travis and we brok up?" I broke the silence.
Her eyes went agape. "Travis, Elvis. If you ask me, they're similar and weren't good for you honey.. I'm really sorry bout that. Oh you poor thing. Two break ups in a month. Sheesh" she gave me a tight hug before we heard the doorbell ring.
"Its them!! Quick! Go take a shower. What were yo thinking not taking a shower till now" she said pushing me away.
I ran to the bathroom. I think she just transferred her virus to me, I quickly showered. Found a T-shirt and a trouser, applied just a lip balm, put my hair in a messy bun(while still a little wet) then got to the living room to see Luke. Just Luke? What the hell now?
"Hi, uhm where's Quinn and Edwin? I asked with a fake smile.
" Quinn said she needed to get lady things and begged Edwin to take her. Seemed to me like she just wanted to leave so bad" He said while watching the TV.
That girl...she purposely left us here. Alone! I tried to hide my anger so bad I felt myself getting hot.
"Oh, okay. Well, you're welcome. Do you want something to drink? Water, Orange juice? Alcohol.. Though its past 1." I said walking into the kitchen.
"Water's fine." He said and I nod.
"So, mind telling me a little about yourself? He said with a smile.
" Well.. My name, Gabrielle Salvador. I'm twenty. I' half Puerto Rican. Nothing much really. " I responded offering him a cup of water.
I don't really know what to say when I'm asked about myself. There's nothing much to say, really. I remember when mom used to tell me, if any guy asks you who you are Gabby, tell them you are 'not interested' and walk away..If he's serious, he'll come meet your papa if not, baby let him go..you're a jewel. My Jewel. Don't let any one in until you truly, I repeat truly love hi m.
I smile at my thoughts and look up to find him staring at me.
"What? It is my world." I laugh.
"Yes, indeed it is". He smiled.
Luke's Prov:
She was beautiful, her laugh, the way she presented herself. Everything. She was just perfect. But I feel bothered though. Why work as a Janitor? She seemed bright. Why that choice?
" uhm.. I'm sorry to repeat my question but, why do you choose to work as a janitor? " I ask, after studying that her mood was calm.
She sighed " I told you, its private. And I don't really know who you are." She said pushing her hair behind her ear.
"I understand. I'm honestly sorry, I didn't mean to pry. Well, I'm Luke Levington. L.L as called by my friends sometimes. I've been friends with Quinn for a long time now but haven't seen you around. Why so?" I ask again.
"Actually I'm always busy..with work, family issues, relationships... Life. I did visit though but not very often then. Now I'm totally free. " she said and I noticed she bit her lips like she shouldn't have said all that.
I laughed causing her to smile.
I like it whenever I'm around her. I feel free and calm. There was an awkward silence, so severe you could hear a pin drop. I was out of words to say, bu I loved been here. With her.
I kept my eyes fixed on the ground and I felt really hot. Why the bloody hell was it getting so hot?
Gabrielle's Prov:
I'm soooo gonna kill Quincy, she left me alone here with a total stranger! What if he tries to rape me? I was only two chairs away from him. I didn't like thi silence.
My heart beat faster than usual.
"Uh, excuse me, I'll be right back" I said to him.
I walked into the bathroom, turned on the water while I dialed Quincy's number. It rang twice, no answer. I tried the third time before she picked up.
"Hey babe, don't worry I'm almost home just give me five minutes.." She said through the phone laughing over God knows what.
"You better be" I dropped the call and got back to the living room.
"This is awkward. I don't know why but next time, I wouldn't choose to meet you in a house." He said standing up.
"I know right? I thought I was the only one. I've never really met someone in my house. Normally w meet outdoors, the park or maybe take a walk. " I say demonstrating.
"Same with me. Apart from parties of course. Thos are exceptional." He said.
"Here, I found these pictures, you could watch em just so you wouldn't feel bored" I said handing him an album.
The door opened and in walked Quinn and poor Edwin behind her with lots of packages.
"I'm so sorry to leave you guys alone. I'll make it up with a fun game! " she said clapping her hands cheerfully.
"A truth or dare really?" I asked sarcastically.
"Yeah, exactly" she answered.
We made a circle and began playing.
I tossed the bottle and it stopped at Edwin.
I smiled mischievously "Truth or dare Ed."
"Truth" he answered with a smile.
"Ohkay.. What was your first impression about Quinn when you saw her at first" I ask.
"Well, I thought she was a fashion goddess cause she was with you dressed in what I couldn't recall and I was on a date in this fancy restaurant. You guys were just looking into the restaurant like you would want to life in it forever. So I ditched my date, wrong of me I know. Then I followed you two all the way here. The next day, I met her again in a bus. From there, we got to know each other and lov stepped in." He finished off then turning to give her a kiss.
"Ohhh I feel jealous! But I asked for a first impression not your entire love story" I snapped giving him a thumbs up afterwards.
The game went on for hours and got boring when everyone decided to go with truth throughout.
Edwin kissed Quinn good bye while I gave Luke a hug. He smelled so nice.
"I love your Cologne" I whispered in his ear. He smiled and waved goodbye.
"I'm never forgiving you for leaving me alone her with him. You did that on purpose! " I said to Quinn dragging the chocolate she had bought from her.
"How'd you.... I'm sorry, I just want you to be happy. I gave you guys that moment to get to know each other privately. I won't lie to you, I like Luke. He's an incredible guy trust me. Just give him a chance." She said looking at me with those truthful blue eyes of hers.
"What?? You're joking right? Quinn if you're asking me to date him, that's a no! I can't not after what I've Been through...I don't ne..."
"I'm not telling you to date him silly, just give him a chance. As a friend" she cut me off, hitting me wit a waterproof.
I thought about it for a few minutes and said "okay but.. No more house visits. I don't know what to do while you were gone."
"Its not gonna happen again cupcake" she promised handing me chips.

Chapter 7
I woke up to the sound of my phone ringing all over the room. I checked the time. 3am.What the hell?! hate mornings. I am definitely not a morning person apart from work, I choose to wake up pretty late than the usual time.
"Hello?" I answered still feeling sleepy.
"Hello, Gabrielle..its your brother. Alberto... Y...you need to come home. He's very sick. Please my child come home" she sounded scared.
"Mamma? What's wrong with him?" I said getting up. I felt like the world got smaller gradually as she kept talking and crying through the phone.
Something was wrong. Alberto never got this sick before. My hands got sweaty and my body heated up.
"Okay mamma..please just stay strong for me okay Please I'll be there soon. Just take him to the hospital, don't worry about the bills. I...I'll get something. Mamma don't cry.. It hurts me. Pl..please mamma" I say trying to not cry too. I dropped the call, ran over to Quincy's room.
"Quinn! Quinn! Wake up! Its my mom.." I shouted shaking her till she managed to get up.
"What?? What's wrong Gabby?" She said when she noticed my eyes wet with tears.
"Mom just called. Alberto's sick. I don't know what's wrong. Where am I gonna get the cash from? I haven't been paid yet.. Quinn, I can't loose him or my mother. You know she's got a high blood pressure.. I.." I say crying in her arms.
"Shhh shh... Stop, nothing bad is gonna happen. Everything will be fine. You can't drive in this state and I can't drive. I'll call Edwin and he'll take us there okay? Just calm down..it'll be fine" she hugged me tight, gently touching my hair as she said.
I watched her walk away from the room and overheard her talking with Edwin on the phone. She was worried too. To me she wasn't just my best friend, she was my sister. Whenever I cry, she cries along. Whenever I rejoice, she rejoices with me. Sh loved me like a sister and always showed it.
Luke's Prov:
I couldn't sleep. I rolled all over the bed. Got up to use the bathroom. Got back in bed again. Still couldn't sleep. I wasn't one of those people who'd just sleep right away after shutting their eyes.
I walked from the room to the dinning room. Living with Edwin wasn't one of my plans in life but the guy has been ever good to me. Together, we built this house, furnished it, started a business and have established quite a lot.
Soon we'll part ways which is for sure. He'll get married and have his own family, so would I. But not now. I still have a long way to go.
I heard his room door open and close. His footsteps coming downstairs.
"Hey man, where are you off to so early?" I asked a I sipped my coffee.
"It's Quinn. She said something 'bout Gabby's brothe been sick and they needed a ride to her parent's place. She sounded scared Luke" he said taking his keys.
My hands got shaky for a moment. I couldn't imagine what Gabby was going through but I wasn't going to stay here knowing that some thing's wrong
"I'm coming with you" I said standing up.
He seemed surprised at my words but didn't say anything. We got into the car and drove as fast as we could to Quinn's.
They were already outside when we got there. She looked rather pale and was held by the arm by Quinn. Her dark hair loosely parked. She was still in her PJ's. I got off the car, helped her to get in whil Quinn sat in the front seat.
"Are you okay?" I managed to ask.
"No...no I'm not Luke" she said bursting into tears.
I hate to see her like this. It breaks my heart. I hugged her and kept telling her it would be fine. I didn't know what, but I knew deep down inside me, she'll be alright. I felt her hold my hands so tight. She buried her face in my chest.
I want her to be fine, I need to see her happy again.
She brought her phone out and called her mom. We had to drive to the hospital now.
Gabrielle's Prov:
I didn't care about a single thing apart from seeing my family. We got to the hospital after going past my parent's house. Mom was outside. Her face lit up when she saw me get off the car. I ran to her, she opened her arms, hugging me.
"Mamma Dónde está Alberto? I asked her holding her hands.
"He's fine, he's inside now. The doctor said he had a convulsion before but, that's been settled. Gabrielle, its okay" she said hugging me again.
Luke, Edwin and Quinn stood behind me. They all greeted mom with a smile.
"And dad? Where is he now mamma?" I asked her again turning away.
I knew he wouldn't be here. He cared less about us. All he did was kill my mother's happiness and steal the money I sent for them. The only difference between he and the devil was that he was my father. He never for once performed the role of one.
"Where is he mamma? Gambling? " I scoff
" I don't know why he's still alive honestly! All he does is hurt you! Hurt us!" I yelled. I hated to yell at her but I couldn't help it. She's letting a man kill he slowly.
"Cállate Gabrielle! You would not speak such of your father! No matter what, he's your father and you have no option but to accept it so!" She reproved.
"I'm so sorry mom, we'll talk to her..she's just worried that's all. Luke can you?" Quinn said to her while Luke took me away from the drama.
Why would she even let Luke do the talk to me job We walked for a few minutes then I found a bench where we sat on.
"I'm sorry about all of this" he said looking down.
"Its not your fault. It has nothing to do with you. Thanks though for been here " I said.
It was dawn already. Birds began to chirp. It looked beautiful and I felt a little better. Luke was a nice guy. I just needed to open my eyes and let him in- as a friend.
"I'm sorry you had to see that. Its just... My dad makes life so hard for us. He doesn't support my mom or help my brothers in school. I'm the only on who does that. Soon mom would go into retirement and how the hell does he think they'll survive? I gave up college just because I needed to work out money to take care of them...
To answer your question, I chose to become a janitor cause that was all my certificate could afford to get me. I study on my own but that doesn't matter because companies need certificates to prove you actually know what you're doing. I'm just tired of all this problems" I finally finish off.
He held my hands up to his lips and kissed them softly. I felt my blood thicken and my heart beat faster. Is this what friends do?
"It's going to be fine. You're the strongest woman I've ever seen if you ask me. You're independent and you've got what it takes to be successful. So please Gabby, don't ever feel like its a burden. You're going to crush these challenges, trust me" h said looking into my eyes then smiled at me.
"Wow Luke, I'm...I'm speechless. Thank you. Really, I'm grateful" I chuckled
We sat there for a while before heading back to the hospital. I guess we were both gonna miss work today. Thank goodness he's the boss and also my friend.

Re: Crushed by donsimoniiblog: 11:37am On Mar 07, 2018
We got into the hospital, Quincy and Edwin were still talking with mom. I couldn't hear them but all mom did was nod at whatever they said. I felt a little guilty for not putting myself in her shoes. Her family been torn apart and she's trying her best to keep it together but nothing seems to work out.
I hated hospitals. They had this really weird smell that made me feel uneasy. The last time I was in a hospital was when mom gave birth to Alberto, and I came just so we could take her back home.
I wanted the problems to end, I needed it to. I can't let my brothers grow up in a broken home. How would they raise their own homes? It's up to me to make their lives comfortable and to make them feel loved.
I stood up and walked over to where mom was.
"Hey guys, thank you so much for been here. I'm really lucky to have you both as friends. Thank you" I said to Quincy and Edwin.
"What are friends for?" Edwin responded.
"Yeah, just stay here and keep your mom company. You can come pick your things up at my place tomorrow" Quincy said hugging me.
I nod. They went to sit at the reception with Luke.
I turned to my mother who was staring at me softly. I took her hands in mine and said alas "I'm sorry I yelled at you mamma, I just hate what pappa is doing to us. It's so unfair."
"I know, I know child. But you're wrong when you say 'I'm unhappy'. You're here, your brothers are fine and your father.. Well, he's still alive. I'm satisfied Mi amór, don't you worry your pretty little heart." She told me cupping my cheeks and giving me a kiss on my forehead.
" I love you mamma" I said hugging her before she left to be with Alberto and I had to see Quincy and the others off.
We got to car, Quincy and Edwin hugged me goodbye. Luke seemed rather sad but tried to hide it. I hugged him goodbye and just as I was about to let go, he whispered something in my ear which sounded like "I love you".
I looked at him perplexed but he just smiled and got into the car.
I went back to the hospital and then to Alberto's room. Mom and George were already there. Alberto was asleep. I sat on his bed admiring his innocence.
His long dark lashes closed. He had pretty brown eyes just like our mother. His brows covered by his fringe. His pink pouted lips. He looked adorable even while looking pale.
I told mom to take George home with her while I stay the night with Alberto. After few minutes of refusal, she went home after all.
It was noontime now, so I decided to go see the doctor. I walked around but couldn't find his office.
" I'm so sorry ma'am but please, where can I find the doctor's office?" I asked a nurse.
After a minute of looking at me from head to toes, she answered.
"Oh, just down that hall. Over to the right. You'll see a White door with bold words 'Doctor Hamilton' written on it" she said smiling.
I think maybe it's because I was still in my PJ's, whatever. They have no idea what I'm going through. Change of clothes were the least of my worries right now.
I knocked at his door before getting in.
"Good afternoon, Doctor Hamilton. I'm Gabrielle Salvador.. Sister to Alberto Salvador. He was brought in here earlier this morning by my mother" I said watching him search for a file.
"Ah...yes. Welcome. Please have a sit. He's alright now right? I gave your mother drug prescriptions and I told your husband that your brother is fit as a fiddle to go. I'm surprised you're still here" he said taking his glasses off.
"Husband? What husband? Doctor I'm not married. Who was the man?" I asked giving him a confused look.
"Tall, brunette? He came in with you guys this morning" he said.
"Oh" I laughed.
"That's just my friend Doctor. Anyways, I came to find out about the bills." I said feeling a lump in my throat.
"That was settled by your tall friend" he responded returning to his paper work.
What? Why would Luke do that? When did he? I thanked the doctor before leaving his office.
I got back to Alberto's room to see him awake and beside him was Luke. Speak of the devil and he appears.
He was dressed in a black T-shirt and black trousers. He looked dangerously beautiful in black. His hair neatly combed, his blue eyes fixed on me as I walked in. I appreciate all he had done but I don't want him getting involved with my family.
"Sister!!!" Alberto cried cheerfully.
"Sweetheart! Oh my goodness, thank God you're awake and fine. " I say kissing his face.
"Luke? What're you doing here? I thought you left with Quinn. And why did you pay the bills too? You didn't have to That's just too much." I said still hugging my brother.
"Well, one after the other Gabby. I came to give you new clothes to change into as directed by Quinn. Everything you need is in here." He said raising a bag up.
"And..why I paid the bills? You're right. I didn't have to. But, I chose to. Don't ask me why. Just pack up so I can take you to your parent's. Maybe we could get something on our way there for your brother." He stood up and walked outside.
Are you freaking kidding me?! Who the hell was THAT for? Me? Uh uh...I doubt.
"C'mon sis, let's pack up! You heard him. I don't like it here. I wanna go home to mommy" Alberto begged with those cute little eyes of his.
I smiled." Okay, but it's just because of you love. You deserve to be happy" I say kissing his forehead.
After packing up, Luke helped me get the things into the car and off we went out of the hospital premises.
"I saw this really good pizza place on my way here, you think we can get in and get something to eat? You must be hungry" he said smiling but still got his eyes fixed on the road.
He was right, I am hungry. No matter how sad or upset I was, it never affected my appetite.
"Yes, please Sir" Alberto said from behind me.
Luke looked at me then back at the road.
"Okay okay geez..." I mumbled.
When we arrived at the pizza place, it was huge! I couldn't get in there looking like I'd gone insane.
"How am I supposed to go in there with my PJ's Luke. We should just go to my parent's. I need to shower too. Alberto?" I look at him for approval.
"No.. I want pizza! I want pizza!" He yelled making Luke laugh so hard.
"Well if he wasn't here how'd you think pizza would get to you? Quit it okay? Please, Let's go home." I beg him.
Luke held my hands and shook his head. "Gabby, let him have his pizza. You can sit in the car while we go get it to go. Alright?" He said softly.
"I... Okay,Fine. Get me like one too before I pass out." I chuckled.
They spent hours getting pizza and finally came out hands full.
"What took you guys so long?" I ask as he got into the car handing me my share and an energy drink.
"Thank you" I said.
"I'm sorry, we were the last to be served. That's why." He explained and we continued the drive.
Alberto cared less about the stranger who just bought him pizza. As long as he was nice enough to take him out, the stranger turns into his friend.

I was so tired. I hadn't had much rest and I've got work to do tomorrow. I'm gonna have to call a meeting in the office so we'd start off our projects. I'm way behind time and the deadline's on Friday.
I parked the car in Quinn's garage then I got Gabby's things out the car. I knocked at the door so many times before she answered.
"Gosh, Luke! Its 11:30pm. Couldn't you guys just sleep at her parent's?" She asked angrily.
"I'm sorry to wake you but, you need to come get Gabby. She's really tired and I can't carry her out of her own will" I said politely.
"Well, do you expect me to carry her? Of course you'd carry her. I'll hold the door for you" she whined walking past me to the passenger door.
I opened the door, carried her in my arms while Quinn held the door. I carefully placed her on the couch. Reached for a blanket where I suspected Quinn was using and covered her up anyways.
"There, there"
"Good night then Quinn" I said leaving her place.
She escorted me to the door waving a good bye to me.
I'm not sure I'll have that sleep I wanted but I sure want to get my project done before Friday. First thing tomorrow morning, 5am. I'll be at work. I can't let the company loose this contract.
***
Next morning
Gabrielle's prov:
"Luke?" I whispered.
"I'm here, I'm here" he said kissing my lips softly, holding my waist with one hand and caressing my breasts with the other.
I moan at his touch causing him to deepen our kiss.
He pulled away, looking into my eyes he said "Gabby I'm in love with you"
I pulled him closer to me, our lips interlocked perfectly. The next thing I knew, we were on his bed. His blue eyes got darker and his hair damp with sweat.
"I want you to moan" I whispered.
"Make me" he whispered back kissing my neck going down to my chest.
"Mmmmh.. Luke..w..ait" I mumbled.
"Gabby!!" I heard someone call.
"Gabby!! Dammit, wake up! You'll be late for work!! the voice much clear now. It sounded like Quincy's.
I opened my eyes to find her beside me. I got up sluggishly.
"What time is it?" I ask
"6:15! God, you sleep like a wood" she said angrily leaving the room.
I walked to the bathroom. I had this weird feeling. I can't seem to understand but it's nothing good. I gave my face a wake up was h then quickly took m bath. I wore Quinn's black leather jacket and her black trousers.
She sure got great choice of clothes. I brushed my hair and did my normal light make up.
Quinn already prepared pancakes so I just ate breakfast with her.
"I had the stupidest and most uncomfortable dream Quinn" I said slowly chewing my pancake.
"Oooh dreams. Me like. Tell me" she said rubbing her palms together.
"Luke, he... We... We were smooching! And almost had sex!" I said almost irritated at my own words.
The pancake in her hand fell off "w...what?!" Her eyes went agape and then she busted into endless laughter.
I didn't ask her anything else. I just kept eating unti she was done with her ridiculousness.
" I'm sorry baby girl but it's really funny you're feeling upset about it. C'mon Gabby, it's just a bloody dream. Nothing more" she laughed again.
I mimicked her words then got up to leave for work. I packed up my things into my car.
"Thanks Quinn, it was really fun spending the weekend with you" I said giving her a hug.
"Absolutely. And babe? Take your mind off that dream before it gets in your head" she hit me playfully.
I drove off in a hurry. Nothing on earth was stoppin me from getting that taser. Lucky me, the sales guy was outside his shop.
"Hi, good morning. You got a taser?" I asked as polite as I could.
"Morning Angel, I sure do. Hold on a bit okay love?" He said smirking at me.
I was running late but it was worth it. He came out handing me the device and I paid him with my credit card.
I got into the reception. Rosie wasn't there. Maybe I ain't the only one coming in late these days. I changed into my uniform then went on to carry out my work.
The office seemed empty. Even Luke's office. This i weird, has rapture taken place? I ran outside to check. Nope, everything was normal.
At exactly 12pm, everyone started coming out of th boardroom. I ran into my locker room. I don't wann see his face. Sheesh... I hate dreaming about someone then waking up feeling different about them.
There was a knock at the door. Lord.. I prayed it wasn't him. I opened the door to see Milton(some guy who has been checking me out ever since I started working here). He was a cute Blondie. Quite my age or younger. But naaah Boy Bye.
"Hey Gabby, uhm do you mind if I have a word with you?" His deep voice sounded all over my little room.
"Okay, no problems" I said stepping out and closing the door behind me.
"There's this concert my cousin's holding up and I was wondering if you'd like to come with me. No strings attached, just two colleagues going out on a concert." He said smiling broadly.
I felt sad for him. After mustering up the courage to finally talk to me, he was gonna be disappointed. If it were before, I would've accepted to go with him but then again..I had a weird dream. It might not b Luke probably someone else and God is trying to warn me. Thank you Lord. Ain't no guy gon' have my ass.
I chuckled "Milly, when's the concert?"
"Oh, Friday night. By...by 7pm at Royal Stay." He said nervously.
"I can't seem to know my schedules on Friday but I'll think about it. Don't get your hopes up though" I told him with a warm smile.
He nodded and left.
I haven't seen Luke all day, should I stop by his office to say "hi?" No no he's probably busy. I'm jus gonna mind my own business. Though I haven't thanked him for getting me home last night or even paying my brother's hospital bills. I don't want him to think of me as an ungrateful bitch. Perhaps I should call him? But I don't have his phone number poo.
I walked to the reception to find Rosie back. She was wearing a heavy make up unlike her. Her hair parked in a messy something that didn't look anything like a bun. I'm guessing she just had a manicure cause she took her time in handling the keyboard.
"What's up girlie" I tease
"Oh hi Gabby, arrived late again? " she didn't seem in a good mood today.
"Yeah...you okay? You don't look alright. Someone get you mad?" I say playing with my hair.
"Urrrgh!! I hate your boss!" She said brusquely.
"What did he do?" I rolled my eyes.
She pulled me closer "All this, all of this" she gestured.
"I had myself look attractive for him but he didn't even look at me! All he did was talk about this boring project!" She said hitting the table.
I felt a little jealous I can't seem to know why. Whatever, if she likes him it's no big deal.
"Easy there Tiger, you should just be yourself. If he loves you for it, wonderful! If he doesn't, fine. Don't kill yourself for a guy. You really don't look pretty sulking" I tease and she smiled.
"Get outta here you crazy thing!" She playfully threw paper balls at me.
"I ain't gonna pick those up I hope you know" I said before running off.
We closed pretty early today and I still haven't seen Luke. Hope he's alright. Wouldn't want one of my friends falling ill.
Well, I'm gonna have a long bath when I get home, change my nail Polish and have a me time. I bough the walking dead series on my way home.
While other girls preferred to watch mean girls 1&2 I preferred to lock myself up in my house, popcorn i my left arm, remote in my right arm..watching walking dead.

Chapter 10


The next few days went by quickly.
The next few days were so boring.
Boring and quick - not a good pair.
But you know the fun part? Who am I kidding, there was no fun part. My life was boring. I sat in the reception thinking about Milton's offer. I needed to shake some negative things off my life. I needed to get wild for a while.
Yeah, I'm definitely gonna go with him to the concert.
I was on my way to give him the good news when I bumped into Luke at the hallway.
"Oh sorry" I muttered.
"Yeah, you okay? Haven't seen you in what? Like two years now" he teased.
"I'm pretty sure it's just two days" I laugh.
"And I've been wanting to see you but thought you were busy. Rosie said you guys had a project to work on" I said.
"Yeah, yeah a pretty hard project I tell you. You know, we needed to hire a model for our advertisement but so far none has showed up. I'm loosing hope" he ran his hands through his hair slightly messing it up but it seemed like they obey his touch cause they fell back in place.
"Mmhh okay, don't you worry. It'll be fine" I say trying to leave him so I could catch up with Milton.
"Can I have your number?" He said in his deep British accent, holding me back.
I was kinda surprised at first, guys don't usually ask for my number in such manner. They usually use these weird pick up lines.
"Oh please don't feel uncomfortable Gabby, I've got Quinn's and Edwin's. I need yours too. Just in case.." He looks at me with those pretty blue eyes of his.
"Okay okay, whatever. No night calls" I said typing i in his cell. He gave me a flash immediately and I saved his number before taking off.
I went into the office where all the clerks worked. I see Milton at his table full of paper works. His blonde hair slightly falling into his face and his brows furrowed, possibly getting confused but hey, I cared less.
"Hey, Milly..so sorry to disturb you" I said gesturing at his papers.
"Oh no no..it's fine, c'mon let's go outside. It's better there" he insisted and I nod.
Luke was having a talk with Rosie when we walked past them, I could feel his stare all over me.
I don't know but I didn't like the thought of him been with Rosie especially after what she told me. Was I jealous? No, hell no. I mean why would I be? I didn't have any feelings for him whatsoever and he's not my boyfriend.
If he wanted to date anyone in the office he's hella free. I don't care.
"Okay, so you thought about my proposal?" Milton interrupted my stupid thoughts.
"Yes, Absolutely. I'll go with you to the concert" I giggled.
He seemed so happy he lifted me off my feet.
"Whoa whoa.. I didn't accept to marry you. Its just concert." I huff pushing him away.
"Oh I'm so sorry, I didn't mean to. I'm just really excited. I was expecting a no" he apologized rubbin his hand behind his neck shyly.
I looked inside the reception to see Luke glaring.
Pffffft.. Really? Wtf? I glared back at him and he walked out leaving poor Rosie clueless.
"So you'd pick me up at uhm..let's say 7:00pm? Gimme your contact so I can text you my house address".
I scribbled down Lord's way 2 block A Behind Pep's Pet Store on a piece of paper. We exchanged contacts and he left feeling like a school kid who just got straight A's on a test.
**
My hand reaches my phone through the dark, the power was bad and I groan at having to read the time on the bright screen. 5:07am.
I pull the blankets off me, turned the shower on while I slowly prepared for work just to pass time.
I had to prepare spaghetti and sauce for breakfast, but it seemed time got back at me cause it was no 7:15am and the sauce wasn't ready.
I just turned off the gas, put the half done sauce in the freezer. I don't want to get to work late today. I need to finish off early for the concert.
Just like the rest of the days in this week, today was worse. It was really hot and the power hasn't been restored back. Workers going to and fro lookin for where to photocopy files. The place was stuffy a hell.
I on the other hand had no problem except that I hated sweating. It was just so uncomfortable!
I don't know where the hell Luke was but, he better fix this (like he works at the power station) else I'm gonna have to find some other job..probably as an ice cream sales girl.
Working on a bad power was the worst thing ever I swear..think about it, you've got to sweat all through! Endlessly! Even after you're done.
I quickly round off with everything, left early with the excuse of I had a lady problem . I got home and luckily, the power was back on. I took a hot shower dried and straightened my long dark hair. I picked out a black Tee shirt with the words Rock o n written boldly on them, my blue crazy jeans and black sneakers to wear for the concert with Milton.
I didn't waste much time, I applied a liner and a lip gloss (my temporary love for them though).
I heard my doorbell ring. I ran to open it to find Milton looking so....cool. His blonde hair semi-messed up but it made him look kinda hot. His perfect jawlines. He looked really hot.
"You look amazing Gabby" he scanned me.
I smile and felt a little blush sweep in my cheeks.
"C'mon, let's get going" he grabbed my hands and led me to the car. He opened the car door for me.. must fess, I'm really impressed by his demeanor.
We drove for like 40 minutes before we arrived at this hotel..really big and weird that they chose to hold a concert in here. Of course I carried my taser in my bag just in case he decides to do something funny.
We got inside the hotel..it seemed more like a party than a concert.
"I thought you said it was a concert!!" I yelled trying to get him hear me cause of the loud music.
"I thought it was honestly. I think my cousin tricked me" he said holding my hands as we find our way t the bar.
Or he lied.
Maybe this was just what I needed. A party. Get wild for a while, have fun.
"You got liquor" I ask the bartender immediately I get on the chair.
Milton looks at me, surprised that I drink I guess. It's been a while.. Like three months if I'm not wrong. It won't hurt to go back to it.
"What?" I slur at him.
"Forgive me but I didn't think you're the kind of person to drink" he said ordering a Scotch.
I laugh hard " me too Milly, me too. You drink too so that makes the two of us" I took a shot at my liquor.
"Mmmh! poo, that felt great! Try mine" I said takin his.
This went on for hours and we decided to hit the dance floor. We danced for a few minutes..grinding, twerking and twisting our hearts out. I cared less about anything else.
I went back to the bar to drink while Milton made out with some hot chick he was flirting with earlier.
I'm glad this isn't a date and that I don't like him. I wonder why we haven't been talking. He's a hell of a guy(in a good way) he's fun, mad fun to be with.
I felt the building turn upside down. The bartender went from three to six, the crazy people started to form weird shapes and my lids closed gradually.
thud!!
My face slammed at the table.
"Oooooouch...can't you be less painful dork?" I curse at the table. Mumbling other things to myself before everything went blank.

Chapter 11

I was so tired. I hadn't had much rest and I've got work to do tomorrow. I'm gonna have to call a meeting in the office so we'd start off our projects. I'm way behind time and the deadline's on Friday.
I parked the car in Quinn's garage then I got Gabby's things out the car. I knocked at the door so many times before she answered.
"Gosh, Luke! Its 11:30pm. Couldn't you guys just sleep at her parent's?" She asked angrily.
"I'm sorry to wake you but, you need to come get Gabby. She's really tired and I can't carry her out of her own will" I said politely.
"Well, do you expect me to carry her? Of course you'd carry her. I'll hold the door for you" she whined walking past me to the passenger door.
I opened the door, carried her in my arms while Quinn held the door. I carefully placed her on the couch. Reached for a blanket where I suspected Quinn was using and covered her up anyways.
"There, there"
"Good night then Quinn" I said leaving her place.
She escorted me to the door waving a good bye to me.
I'm not sure I'll have that sleep I wanted but I sure want to get my project done before Friday. First thing tomorrow morning, 5am. I'll be at work. I can't let the company loose this contract.
***
Next morning
Gabrielle's prov:
"Luke?" I whispered.
"I'm here, I'm here" he said kissing my lips softly, holding my waist with one hand and caressing my breasts with the other.
I moan at his touch causing him to deepen our kiss.
He pulled away, looking into my eyes he said "Gabby I'm in love with you"
I pulled him closer to me, our lips interlocked perfectly. The next thing I knew, we were on his bed. His blue eyes got darker and his hair damp with sweat.
"I want you to moan" I whispered.
"Make me" he whispered back kissing my neck going down to my chest.
"Mmmmh.. Luke..w..ait" I mumbled.
"Gabby!!" I heard someone call.
"Gabby!! Dammit, wake up! You'll be late for work!! the voice much clear now. It sounded like Quincy's.

CHAPTER 12
"Hey..Gabby? You dead?" A voice woke me up from a deep sleep I didn't realise I was having.
What in the world?...
I rubbed my eyes and took in the surrounding of the party I was still at in a blurry vision that slowly focused itself into a more clear picture.
The lights in the ceiling shined in muted red and onto the room full of crazy looking people walking and bumping the crowded room with one or more red cups in their hands.
"Gaaaaaabby?" I heard the same voice that woke me up very close to me say.
I turned to see Milton beside me who was obviously high as hell. My face still on the table, I have been drooling..yuck! My hand still holding on to my liquor my other hand holding the bottle of liquor.
"Whaaaat?" I slur at him.
"W...what time is it?" I ask lifting my face off the table. The room looked fuzzy and so did everything in it.
He took a long look at his watch "2:25am".
"Mmmh.. Okay bye" I stood up to gain my balance.
"Where you going? I can ta..."
I placed my finger on his lips to shut him up.
"Home and no. You can't drive me home. You're drunk and I certainly am not ready to die tonight. Thanks anyway" with that, I walked out the hotel waving my hands to him.
†††
I looked like a mess having to walk down the street like a 'totally normal person'. In fact I need to call the Walking dead team and sign up for auditions as a zombie.
My hair was all over the place - you name it north, east, west, South.. I looked like poo. Thank goodness I didn't wear heels, that wouldn't have ended so well.
And then I thought 'where the hell was I heading to? I don't know my way from here'. I saw a bus stop sign and decided to wait there for the bus to arrive.
10 mins gone, no bus.
20.. Still no freaking bus and I felt really dizzy.
I give up, I'm calling that guy. I don't care if he's with Rosie right now in his bed but I needed my friend to come rescue me.
It took me two minutes to find my phone in my bag. I dial up Luke's number. It rings twice.
"C'mon son..pick up the damn phone"
And he picks up.
"Heyyyyy Luke, it's been a while I heard from you. Uhm how're you?" I try to keep it casual but naaah it wasn't working.
"I'm okay, I guess. What's up?" He sighed.
"Fine, I need your help. Please please can you come pick me up? I'm stranded at the bus stop. The one after Royal Stay. Please." I beg.
"Okay, hold on" he dropped the call.
Yeah thata boy.
It didn't take too long before a black car parked in front of me. He got down and walked towards me.
He looked sexy in his sweatpants and a white T-shirt. His brunette hair in place. Like seriously? Couldn't he for once look dreadful?
"Nice work young Lady." He said folding his arms. His biceps form and I could see his large veins pop out his skin. He was mad I could tell, but why the hell was he playing dad to me.
I stood up to walk up to the car but stumbled on my way. I felt large hands catch me, preventing me from getting hurt from my clumsiness.
"Thank you" I gained my balance and got into the car.
††
The drive to my house was quiet. Too quiet.
"Why were you out so late?" He asks finally breakin the silence.
I sigh."I went for a party with Milton."
He sped up a bit. Oookay, now this was getting awkward. I wasn't ready to die but it seemed like death wanted me so bad.
"Why?" He asked in a way I could barely hear.
I laugh "how do I answer that? Well I don't know, because I wanted to" I said sarcastically raising an eyebrow.
He brought the car to a break, turned to face me.
"Do you like him? Do you have feelings for him?" H blurted out.
"What? Milton? No, no freaking way" I slur
"You're sure?" He looked into my eyes like an interrogative officer.
I furrowed my brows "what does it matter to you if I do? Isn't that what everybody is on to? You and Rosie!"
Good, very good Gabby. Bravo! Nice choice of words girl!
"What do you mean?" He asked confused.
"Never mind, forget about it" I said waving the topic off but no, it was spilt milk already.
"Hell no. What do you mean by 'Rosie and I?" He sounded prepared for an argument.
I don't know what's the big deal of keeping it to myself anyways not that I care.
"You like her don't you?"
"Are you serious? You think I do?" He smirked.
"Uhh yeah?" I say unsurely.
"You're wrong. I do not. I like someone else." He said, putting the car on drive.
Oh..
"Oh.. Good for you" I looked out the window. Why the hell am I getting mad right now? I feel like poo I feel like destroying something.
Soon we were at my driveway. I got off the car, wa about to get off when he said "wait, I'll help you in".
Before I could say anything else, he got off the car turning over to help me walk.
" I'm really fine" I assured him but this guy really doesn't know when to give up his good works.
He helped me onto the sofa and got into the kitchen to get me water.
"More liquid?? Please no" I beg
He chuckled handing a cup of water to me" It was your choice to drink that much"
I gulped on the water for a while.
"I uh.. I should get going. You need to rest. Get sobered up" he said
"I'm not drunk" I rolled my eyes.
"Oh, of course. You're not. Drunk." He said with a cheeky grin.
"Do sleep well, I'll check on you tomorrow" he walked to the door.
"Thanks so much! Good night" I said waving to him.
I wasn't drunk. I was wasted.
I managed to get on my bed, removing my clothes. Ending up half Unclad. I dozed off within seconds.

Chapter 13 part 1
The next morning I woke up with a headache,still feeling nauseous and hungry as hell, I darted off the room with a hand to my mouth.
I spent 15 minutes undergoing a 'cleansing session above the toilet. I stood up to wash my face at the sink. After that, I give myself pep talk in the mirror against drinking that much. I was finally getting myself after I took a long hot bath.
I changed into a T-shirt and shorts. Tied my hair in a bun and strolled to the kitchen.
I unfroze the sauce and made myself a wonderful breakfast. After eating so much that I could barely do the dishes, I went over the sofa and turned the TV on to the music channel.
What a boring Saturday. I looked at the clock on the wall 12:37pm.
I wonder what I'm gonna do with my time. I decide to call Quinn.
She picked up at the second dial.
"Hey girl, what's up?" She said immediately
"I'm okay. No, I'm not okay. I'm bored sooo bored. When will you ever pay me a visit?" I said walking around.
"Maybe later tonight, We'd all be going out" she unsurely.
"Yes!! But where? The mall?" I suggest.
"What would would we be doing at the mall by 9pm?" She asked sarcastically
"Okay okay, whatever.. Where are you right now anyway?" I finally sit down crossing my legs.
"At Edwin's" she responded
"Ohh I get you now. You little naughty bitch!" I laugh.
"I have no idea what you're talking about but I will see you tonight. Wear something hot!" She giggles and we say goodbyes.
I'm just gonna go back to bed till that time comes.
Something ho t. I'm looking forward to whatever's gonna happen tonight.
†††
The sound of my phone ringing woke me up from my nap. I looked at the screen, Luke's name boldly written.
Why is he calling?
"Hello?" I answer, my voice a little cracked.
"Hey, how're you doing lady?" He said in his thick British accent that made me smile like a little kid.
"I'm very well now, thank you. Thanks for dropping me off last night" I say getting off the bed.
"Woah.. I thought you wouldn't remember how you got home last night" he sounded a bit surprised.
I laugh"I guess I'm different"
"Yes, you really are" he muttered.
"Yeah..."
That awkward silence again..on phone.
Was that all he called to tell me? I really wanted to ask him hey? Anything else? But hell, that would be rude.
"Uhm Luke?" I called to be sure he wasn't dead on the phone.
"Yeah?" He answered.
"I really don't know what else to say anymore" I laugh.
He laughs"I know, neither do I, but it feels like you're here with me just talking to you on phone"
Awkward
.... How the hell am I gonna responded to that?
"Mmh same here" I blurted out, covering my mouth before I realized what I'd just said.
"Thanks, you'd be coming with us tonight right?" He asks.
"Yeah, definitely. I'm gonna shower now, so uhm we'll talk later?" I lie.
I don't like it when calls get this awkward. I mean i you're not gonna say anything why not drop the damn call and save me the energy?
"Okay, sure. Have a Wonderful day" he said.
"Thanks, you too" I dropped the call feeling a bit relieved that whatever that was, it was over.

Chapter 14
"Gabby! Hey! Wait!!" I could hear him call from a far.
Who am I kidding? This is stupid. Coming here was stupid. I don't know how I feel right now. The least thing I wanted was to hook up with a guy who's in love with someone else.
"What??!!" I yell turning to see him running towards me.
"What do you want Luke?!" I was real mad now.
"Doing all those nice things for me, Calling me up, staring at me in ways I can't seem to understand sometimes... What the hell do you want?" I slur an couldn't hold my emotions in anymore.
"Please don't cry, Gabby.. I..stop crying please" he walked towards me to hold me but I raise my hand to stop him.
His jaw clenched... Hard.
"Don't do that poo with me..you love someone else remember? I don't know why I feel the way I feel right now but I'd get over it" I turned to keep walking but he hold me back and I dart to face him.
We were really close now, I could feel his breath on my face. His huge figure covering me up.
"That someone else is you" he whispered.
Did I just hear him right?
"W...what?" I furrowed my brows hard.
"Yes, I love you. I love you Gabrielle Salvador. I wasn't sure until now...I know you don't feel the same way about me but I can't help it." He cupped my cheek with his hands.
"Luke.."
With one hand at my bare back and the other still cupping my cheek, he pressed his lips to mine, our tongues meeting and caressing each other.
My hands ran from his back to his broad shoulders then onto his soft thick hair. Our lips perfectly fit like they were made for each other.
He brought sparks of passion inside me with just this kiss.
He paused to look into my eyes, ran his fingers over my cheeks "C'mon let's get in and by the way, you look bloody sexy in this dress"
I nodded smiling shyly and with our hands intertwined, we got back inside the room.
The music still on, I couldn't find Quinn nor Edwin anywhere. We sat on our tables and a butler came to take our orders.
"I didn't want to tell you how I felt yet" He said staring at his empty cup.
"Why?" I smiled at him.
"I guess because I felt it was too early and you wouldn't believe me if I told you. I wasn't sure you would like me. But when you told me you were out with Milton, I was a bit bothered" he ran his fingers through his hair to put them back in place.
"You mean jealous" I smirked.
"No." He smiled.
"Oh yeah, I'm pretty sure its 'jealous" I raised my brow at him.
"Okay, maybe... a bit jealous" he admitted.
I laughed at his words.
"And what about you? You were jealous too" he folded his arms relaxing on his chair.
"Me? Jealous? Nah" I shake my head taking a drink.
" oh come on, I know you were" he smirked.
"Fine, I was. I don't know why I was but I was" I shrugged.
He took my hands in his, staring at me he said" I'm not good at asking this but Gabby, would you date me?"
Wait..wtf wtf wtaf?
"Date? You? Uhm.. Can I think about it?" I asked in my cutest voice.
"Oh yes, of course." He looked crushed already. I'm sure he's not used to ladies telling him the I'll think about i t kinda stuff.
The rest of the evening was wonderful and magical. That kiss was like a door and now, he'd gotten in. We talked about our childhood experiences, our mos embarrassing moment and first love. This wasn't officially a date but, it was the best night I've had so far.

Chapter 14 part 2

We were outside talking when Quinn and Edwin finally appeared.
"Where have you guys been" I whisper yelled to her.
"Somewhere... Lonely" she smirked.
"Ew ew ew...get away from me. Did you guys.. You know, do it?" I raised my brows at her in shock.
"Uhm...almost but, no." She looked sad.
The guys were having a little chat ahead so that gave us - me enough privacy to talk with her.
"Good thing if you ask me" I shrugged.
"I guess" she laid her head on my shoulders as we walked.
"We kissed" I gripped her tightly.
"You and who? That hot guy?" She pointed at a Blondie guy who looked indeed hot.
"Really?" I emotionlessly stared at her.
Her blue eyes went from normal to agape. She lifted her head, looked at Luke, then at me, back at Luke then at me again.
"Luke??" she said with glee.
"Why are you so happy?" I smiled
She hit my arm"you pretentious bitch! So you do have feelings for him!"
"Yo...keep it down" I hushed her.
"I guess I do now" I shyly smile at the ground.
She laughed so hard I had to cover her mouth.
"Seriously.. Stop it's not funny. He asked me if I would wanna date him" I griped her again.
"So? What're you gonna tell him?" She said.
" I don't know. I'm kinda scared." I shrugged. Why do I keep doing that?
"Honey, Love is mostly about risks. I know you're scared of getting your nasty ass dumped or heart broken but, what if He's the one?" She pointed at Luke who was still blabbing about God knows what to Edwin.
I paused to think.
"That's exactly what you should do. Think hard about it tonight. Ask your self do I love him that much to trust him with my heart? And girl, follow your heart." She hugged me.
I hugged her back.
"Babes, let's get going" Luke winked at me.
We increased our steps to the car. Got in and left the party.
††††
They dropped me off at my house first, Luke walked me to my door.
He took my hands and I looked back at the car to see Quinn and Edwin's head popping out the window, grinning and giving me a thumbs up.
Urrghh..Quinn can't I trust you with a little secret anymore?
"I'll love to see you Monday morning in my office" he kissed my forehead.
I nodded.
"Have a good sleep my love" he let go of my hands slowly like he never wanted to let go. I smiled warmly at him as he walked back to the car, waved a good bye to them as they drove off.
I sighed loudly opening my door, turning the lights on. I took my heels off. Thank goodness they weren't that high and they were comfortable to walk on.
I slowly got out my dress thinking about all that happened tonight.
One word for it - magical.
Yes, I have feelings for Luke. I guess they were there all along and decided to spring forth gradually when he turned out to be everywhere I went.
I want to date him, get to know more about him. Let him into my imperfect world. He's not like Travis. Doesn't stay late at night, he's honest and totally open with me, he's supportive and ALWAYS there for me.
Neither is he like Elvis, he's not a black American, whenever I'm around him, I feel....safe.
I was too tired to take a shower and I think I love the scent of his Cologne all over me. I put my phone on a charge then got in bed and then, I heard a beep sound. I sluggishly got off the bed reaching my phone, I see a message icon.
I clicked on it.
Hey beautiful, I wanted to say a big thank you for showing up tonight and also for giving me a magical night. I love you and always will.
Luke❤.
An uncontrollable smile grew on my face. Hell, I don't what to reply with. Okay okay.. I got this.
I typed:
You're most welcome. Thank you too. Have a wonderful sleep...
Much love, Gabby❤.
Just as I was about to go back to bed, another beep sound.
Oh..I definitely will, because I've got you❤
I smiled like a little child as I got in bed.
I wished every night would end this way...

Re: Crushed by donsimoniiblog: 6:09am On Mar 18, 2018
Chapter 15

Of all days, it chose today. A day I had to work my ass out in the office. I placed like two extra tampons in my bag,just in case it got extra bloody down there.
I hated periods. I wonder how my great great great great grand mothers coped without pads on their periods or were they married off before that age to get pregnant? Hmm thank goodness civilisation came through.
I walked slowly to my car, got in, tried starting it up but it began playing games with me.
Can this day get any worse, really?
After trying it again for the seventh time, I gave up and decided to walk to work. I was so uncomfortable. I had cramps and felt like poo.
"Hey Gabby, you okay? " Rosie asked from her table.
"Yeah, thanks" I muttered walking past her.
I'm guessing that was kinda rude to do but I really don't care about that right now, I just wanna finish up here and go straight home to my bed.
Oh and Luke, yeah..now I have to go see him before I forget.
I changed into my uniform then got out to see him when I bumped into Milton who seemed excited to see me.
"Hey you" he put his arms round my shoulder.
"Yes, hey...what's up?" I gently pulled his arms away.
"Are you sick or something" he said touching my forehead.
"No. I'm fine, just.. Not a fan of Mondays" I smile
"Ohhh right, me neither...." He just kept talking. I couldn't hear most of the things he said cause my cramps got in my head and for a second there, I almost cried out.
Luke came right out of his office, seeing I and Milton together talking... Instead of waving a hello
and walking on to wherever it is he was heading to like any normal guy would, he came over to where we stood.
Juuust great.
"Morning Gabby" he smiled warmly, moving his large hands to my waist and holding them.
"Mmh, morning Luke" I smiled back.
"Milton,hey, didn't see you there" he grinned.
How could he not? Would I just stand in the hallway talking to thin air?
Poor Milton looked down at where his hand was and chuckled.
"Oh, you guys are dating?" His eyes wide open.
"We're getting there" Luke said before I could talk.
"If you'd excuse us Milton, we would get back to you" they laughed and with that, we went to his into office.
I relaxed myself on his comfortable leather chair, stretching my legs.
"Tired so soon" he smirked.
"You have no idea" I shook my head.
"What's wrong?" He placed his hand on my head then on my neck.
"Nothing" I muttered.
"No, not nothing. You're a little hot. Are you sick" he said sitting on his table facing me.
"I'm really not" I was about getting up when...I felt my uniform wet..
...with blood.
Oh Lord why??!!
How the hell am I supposed to leave here without him seeing the blood on his seat. This is really bad.
My face went white with shock and my eyes got watery.
"Gabby?? You okay" he furrowed his brows.
"Luke can you get me Rosie?? Please?" I begged.
He chuckled "Lady problems?"
"Huh?"
"Yeah, periods I guess...I'm no lady but I've got sisters. Don't worry, tell me what you need and I'll get them for you" he pecked my forehead with his plumply lips.
"Seriously? This is weird. You're weird, but...I need my tampons, a cotton wool,detergent, water and a bucket" I listed.
He set out to leave the room.
"Oh and a black nylon! Thanks" I yelled.
†††
He got into the office handing my bag full of tampons, carrying a small bucket of water and a nylon with detergents and a cotton wool inside.
"You're my hero" I gave him a comforting smile.
How he managed to carry all these items into his office was none of my business all I cared about was getting myself cleaned up. Thank goodness he has his own toilet in his office.
"Need anything else, I'll be out the door. Your clothes are in there too since your uniform's stained" he pointed at my bag.
I stood up and hugged him smiling like a little child" thank you"
He left the room.
I rushed into the toilet, cleaned myself up and got changed before I cleaned the chair. I carefully wrapped up the bloody uniform in the nylon.
I knocked twice at the door giving him the signal to come in.
He got in wearing a smile.
"Thanks.." I shyly looked at the ground.
"You're most welcome. Please, have a sit. I'll go get something for you to eat so you could take some pills" he said.
"What? No, I'm fine. Luke, seriously. See?" I turned around.
"Mmmh yes, that's cute but I need you to eat and take the pills first alright?" He insisted.
"Fine, okay.." I mumbled.
He picked up his wallet from the table then left the office.
I got bored so I decided to mess around for a while. I played boss,went through some of his files and books on the table. Wrong, I know but hey, he did say we were heading somewhere so I've got 45% right to.

Crushed chapter 16 part 1


I ate my food like I haven't eaten in like 3 months. Gulping real hard. I wasn't the type of girl who knew how to control herself in the presence of a man.
He chuckled as I kept eating on.
"What?" I spoke with my mouth full of burgers.
"Nothing, you're just so hilarious" he smiled taking my chips.
I nodded in agreement.
We spent the few minutes eating together on his table. I didn't only feel safe with this guy but I felt...comfortable. I wasn't scared or insecure about anything and he on the other hand, was a sweet gentleman. Thoughtful, smart, responsible and totally understanding.
"What's going on in your mind Gabby, you've been lost in space" he grinned.
I smile and hold his large hands.
"Yes, I'll date you"
"I'm sorry, what?" His blue eyes open in surprise.
"You heard me, I'll date you Luke" I chuckled.
He stood up, walked to where I sat. He knelt down like he was going to propose.
My heart skipped. If he was gonna ask me to
marry hi m hell no. I won't. I'm not ready for that kind of commitment right now.
"I promise you Gabby, I'll never hurt you. You don't know how I feel hearing you say that to me. I won't let you down. I won't make you cry. I promise to do whatever it takes to make and keep you happy" he pressed his lips on mine. His kiss, soft and sweet. Then he stopped to look into my eyes.
I wasn't good at that intimate stare stuff I don't know why but to me, it's kinda weird.
"Wow...." I felt my eyes get a little watery. No one has ever said something like that to me before.
"Why am I getting emotional?" I chuckled, whipping my eyes with my hands.
He smiled " I love you".
"I love you too" I gave him a short kiss.
"C'mon, let's get you home." He held my hands.
"Wait, I can just drive or walk home..it's not far" I said.
"You didn't come with your car today and I don't want you to walk home.
Gabby, you can take the week off if you want. I need to see that you're alright" he looked at me with his blue eyes.>
I sighed.
"How'd you know I didn't come to work with my car? And.. Taking a week off, that's really a lot. What would I be doing home, alone?"
"I didn't see it outside"
"And if you get lonely, you can call me. You know I'd be there in no time"
He smirked.
We set out of his office with him holding my hands.
At the reception, Rosie gave me the evil eye as we passed.
I'm guessing she's gonna need to see the Ophthalmologist soon because, She'll be seeing more than just I and Luke holding hands.
One thing about love, you never know where the hell it's gonna take you. You never know who it'll give to you but one thing's for sure, It's never gonna give you the wrong one if only you open your eyes to see it.
††
Luke dropped me off at my house and headed back to finish his work at the office. He insisted on staying with me but no, I can't let him abandon his job as boss just because of me.
I washed my stained uniform in the Washing machine, took my bath, took some pills too.
Made my self a plate of cereal while I rented the
Notebook movie to watch.
In the middle of the movie, I heard my phone ringing all the way from my room.
Oh that was a long journey.. Why didn't I take it here with me in the first place?
