Agnes overslept this morning, but it was all because she was beat from last night.
She swore she set her alarm clock, but it never rang. She jolted awake, startling the man next to her who was still fast asleep.-
Irritated, he mumbled, “Why are you up so early?”
In a fluster, Agnes replied, “It’s already 8. I’m gonna be late for work.”
She tried to spring out of bed, but Jared pulled her back.
“Since you’re late anyway, stay in bed with me a bit longer,” he said, pulling her into his arms.
Agnes didn’t dare to disagree though she wasn’t thrilled.
Jared seemed to fall asleep again, so Agnes cautiously began to inch away, hoping to sneak out of his grip without waking the man besides her.
But just as she was about to make her escape, Jared snapped open his eyes and rasped, “Agnes, didn’t anyone ever tell you it’s risky to sneak out early in the morning?
Before she could react, he pulled her back and pinned her beheath him…
By the time Agnes arrived at the office, it was already half past nine.
Anita asked, “Agnes, why are you so late today?”
Thinking back to the morning’s events, Agnes blushed.
Anita asked, “Your face is so red. Are you sick?”
Agnes quickly covered it up, “My dog at home is too clingy; I just couldn’t get away.”
As Agnes finished her sentence, Anita nudged, “The big boss is here.”
Sure enough, Jared walked by them, pausing slightly as if to glance at Agnes.
Agnes sucked in her breath, he didn’t hear that, did he?
After Jared entered his office, Anita sighed, “I thought the boss was going to scold you for being late, Agnes. You’re really lucky today. You were late, and so was the boss.”
Of course, Jared would be late. They came in together. Luckily, no one saw Agnes get out of Jared’s car.
Overhearing the conversation between Agnes and Anita, Yolanda asked, “Agnes, you have a dog? What breed?”
Caught off guard, Agnes blurted out, “A mini poodle.”
Jared would not let it slide if he knew Agnes compared him to a poodle. But he probably didn’t have time to deal with her now, as he was leaving for a business trip in the afternoon.
Before leaving, Jared sent Agnes a message: I’m going on a business trip to Tokyo. Be back in three days)
They had been secretly married for three months now. During this time, Jared had been away on business half the time, but no matter where he went, he always messaged Agnes before he boarded the plane.-
Agnes only had one week left in her internship. She only hoped to get through this period smoothly, and then she would go back to school.
Who would have thought that an unexpected event would occur the next day.
As soon as she entered the office, Agnes saw a crowd of people around her desk. When she went over, she found a huge bouquet of roses on her desk.
Seeing this, her colleagues expressed their envy, “Agnes, who sent this? He must be loaded! 99 rainbow roses, that’s like three months of our salary.”
Agnes was just as puzzled, but then she noticed a card attached to the bouquet. After reading the card, her face changed. She immediately picked up the bouquet and tossed it into the nearby trash can.
Everyone was confused, a colleague whispered, “Agnes, did your boyfriend send this? Did you guys have a fight?”
Another colleague said, “If my boyfriend tried to make up with me with 99 rainbow roses, I’d definitely forgive him.”
Agnes didn’t respond, but seeing her expression, everyone didn’t dare to ask further.
She was uneasy the whole day until she left work in the evening and saw Elton’s car parked in front of the company building.
