Rose

 

 

I laid on my bed looking up at the ceilings with my hands tucked to the blanket on my chest.

 

I couldn’t sleep I kept thinking about my day with Lucian.

 

It felt so special cause I’ve never been taken out like that either.

 

 

Though I have good suitors who might have done that but this feels different.

 

I closed my eyes but I couldn’t sleep, I should get a glass of water.

 

I stood up and walked out of my bedroom.

 

Lucian was laying on the couch, I passed him and walked into the kitchen.

 

I opened the refrigerator and brought out a bottle of water and walked to the glass rack.

 

I poured water into the glass and drank a good amount.

 

I dropped the glass and just stared into space.

 

* Can’t Sleep? *

 

I turned startled to Lucian standing at the other end of the table.

 

* Sorry if I startled you *

 

He apologized and I gave a simple nod. We both just stayed quiet like that * Thanks for today *

 

I said breaking the silence

 

* Thanks for trusting me *

 

He smiled and I nodded with a warm smile. * It’s been a long while I had that much fun * I replied honestly.

 

He walked closer and took the glass of water from me and drank from it.

 

 

You will more often now. Do you want to go out tomorrow too? I can talk to your manager *

 

He asked

 

* No way Lucian, I have to work *

 

I declined.

 

I’m still surprised on how the manager agreed to Lucian’s request so easily today’s and he’s talking about asking for another day? No way!

 

* I’m going to bed now so goodnight *

 

I said to him .

 

He smiled.

 

I walked past him, kept the bottle back in the refrigerator and went to bed.

 

I laid back on the bed and in few minutes I was fast asleep.

 

 

 

I woke up feeling great like every other day.

 

I smiled and stretched out my muscles before out of my room.

 

I looked around the living room and Lucian wasn’t there.

 

I heard some noise from the kitchen so I went there instead.

 

* Good morning Rose sure your night was great *

 

Lucian gave me a very bright smile. He was preparing breakfast?

 

* Good morning Lucian, What’s happening? *

 

 

I questioned smiling pleasingly.

 

* Breakfast girl, Breakfast is happening so sit while I serve you * He replied full of excitement.

 

I did as he said and sat down comfortably and he started setting the table

 

* Someone looks excited *

 

* As always *

 

He replied and sat down.

 

* New job? *

 

I asked curiously. He shrugged his shoulders * Let’s eat *

 

I started eating tasting each meal he cooked.

 

* Wow! Lucian this is great where did you learn this? * I asked surprised.

 

He raised his smart phone and I smiled.

 

We finished eating and I prepared for Work.

 

He escorted me all the way to the restaurant.

 

I walked in and the manager smiled at me for the first time.

 

I greeted and left him to the kitchen into the dressing room.

 

I met Jane and hugged her

 

* I saw you left with your Prince Charming yesterday * She said.

 

* Come on Jane it’s not that *

 

I told her

 

Yeah right, and he visits you everytime I’m pretty sure he’s outside already* She replied and the thought actually crossed my mind.

 

Of course not, he’s at work *

 

I kicked against

 

* Urhmm you even know his schedules *

 

 

 

I just smiled and quickly changed into my uniform and walked out.

 

I met the supervisor outside

 

* Rose you’ve been promoted as one of the head chef * I said and my jaw fell wide open * Really?!*

 

 

I asked and he nodded.

 

I jumped and squealed around the kitchen hugging every one as they congratulated me.

 

This is amazing I can’t believe this is happening right now.

 

I’ve just been promoted despite all my shortcomings at work.
