Episode 7

 

Roxanne POV

 

I drove through my street, I was getting better each passing day. All of a sudden, a car swerved right in front of me and pulled the car to a halt.

 

I came down from my car and the occupants of the other car came out too.

 

“Hey, take this car away and let me go” I said..

 

“Take her” one of them ordered and two guys held me but I didn’t even argue it struggle with them.

 

In life, we should accept situation and think not panic and grumble.

 

I was taken to a sort of warehouse, a guy was standing there like a boss with his back facing me.

 

“Hello Roxanne” The familiar voice said and it was my driving instructor.

 

“What exactly do you want from me?” I asked and broke loose from the guy that were holding me down sending a kick and punch to the.each.

 

“Wow, you are really incredible but as I was saying. I want you to date me” he said and I looked at him.

 

“That’s good but next time be careful” I said and clicked on a button on my wristwatch secretly.

 

“What do you mean by that?” He asked.

 

“Nothing” I replied.

 

“So as I was saying, I want you to be my girl for just six days” he said but I kept quiet.

 

“Speak up!” He yelled but I sat down on the wooden chair there.

 

“I am thirsty,get me some water” I said.

 

“What?? Do you know where you are?” He asked.

 

“Yeah, I am in your hideout and I am being kidnapped but I am thirsty” I said and crossed my legs.

 

“Gosh, I can’t believe this” he said and got me a glass of water.

 

“I am quite hungry. Get me some food” I said.

 

 

“No, don’t you understand that you are being kidnapped, kidnapped! You can’t order me around!” He yelled.

 

“Are you done yelling? Now get me some food” I said.

 

“God!! Are you even human?” He asked and I kept quiet.

 

“Anyways, there is no food here” he added.

 

“Then I am leaving, I have to got get my food” I said and checked the time.

 

“Where’s my phone?” I asked and he handed it over to me.

 

I had several missed calls a d a message from Clara.

 

Mr Ranes left after waiting for you

 

I groaned and slapped him twice making g him gasp.

 

“How dare you slap me?” He asked and Clara walked in with some guards.

 

“Keep him somewhere, I need all the information about him” I ordered and walked out.

 

You wanna know how Clara located me? It was through the button on my wristwatch.

 

I got into my car and called Mr Ranes.

 

“Hello Mr Ranes” I said

 

“Hello miss Roxanne” he said.

 

“I am sorry for not being able to attend to you today,let’s meet tomorrow can we?” I asked.

 

“Of course, I know it’s not your habit, something must have came up” he said.

 

 

“Yeah, thanks for your understanding” I said and ended the call.

 

Thank goodness, that guy almost spiilt my perfect record.

 

I drove home and plopped to a chair.

 

Jake POV

 

“What’s your name?” A hefty guy asked.

 

“Jake Martinez” I replied and he wrote it down.

 

“Who is your father?” He asked.

 

“Mr Martinez, the owner of Martinez Corp” I replied and he wrote it down again.

 

“Now, why are you after boss?” He asked.

 

“Nothing, I just want to be her friend” I replied.

 

“Didn’t you hear that friendship is by choice not by force”

 

“Hey, just let me go. I will give you enough money” I said and he smiled before slappung me.

 

My cheeks was on fire. How many slaps had I received today only? I should just give up on this.

 

But wait a min, I have a picture of both I and Roxanne on a bed, I should use that.

 

A slap interrupted my thoughts.

 

“Hey, stop slapping me!” I yelled.

 

“Can’t you answer my question? Why are you after boss?” He asked then his phone rang.

 

He picked it and said a few words then ended the call. He released me.

 

 

“You can go” he said and I breathed out in relief.

 

“Finally, I am never trying out the hard method. In fact no method works on her.

 

I went home and thankfully mum was not home cause she would definitely question me a lot about my red cheek.

 

I took a bath making sure I spent hours in the tub then I went to sleep immediately on an empty stomach.

 

The next morning

 

“Why is your cheek this red?” Dave asked.

 

“It’s still red? Dave, I got slapped countless times yesterday” I replied.

 

“How did that happen?” He asked.

 

“I tried kidnapping Roxanne but I turned out to be the one that got kidnapped” I replied and Dave muffled a laughter.

 

“I think you should give up” Dave said.

 

“Before I do that, I have one Lear resolution” I said.

 

“What’s that?” Dave asked and Roxanne walked into class.

 

“You will know later” I said and looked at Roxanne.

 

You just watch, Roxanne. I am going to get you to be mine.

Lunch time

 

Where could Roxanne be? I have searched almost everywhere in the whole school. Do you know what that means? Going through several girls that were drooling over.

 

If not for this stupid game, would I be looking for her all over?

 

Finally I saw her walking around with two guards by her side. None of my business anyways.

 

I approached her with a smile, I know that she will definitely agree to this deal.

 

“Hi Roxanne” I called but she continued walking.

 

“Hello, I am talking to you” I said and the guards glared at me, I gulped when I recollected the slap I received yesterday.

 

“I want to talk to you about a deal” I said and she finally stopped in her tracks.

 

She only cares about business, deal and money, bitch.

 

“Let’s go to my car” she said and continued walking.

 

I walked after her or should I say I ran? Cause her pace was too fast for me to catch up with by walking.

 

We hopped into the car. “So what deal are you proposing?” She asked.

 

“Here it is” I said and showed her the picture if I and her together on the bed.

 

She looked at me and at the picture again. “What’s the deal?” She asked.

 

“It’s simple, date me for two weeks” I said and she frowned deeply while I smirked awaiting for her reply.
