“Well I worked overtime today. There is a competition in our company,” she said, letting out a weary sigh. Janet was exhausted, both physically and mentally, so she went straight to her room.

Ethan‘s heart sank as she didn‘t bother to even look at him.

He didn‘t wait all night just to hear something like this.

Ethan wrapped his arms around her waist from behind and rested his chin on her shoulder. “Spend some time with me,” he said, nestling his face in the crook of her neck.

Ethan wanted to kiss her and make out with her. He couldn‘t let his wait end in vain. After all, he was a shrewd businessman.

“It’s already late. Aren‘t you sleepy?” His warm, steady breath blowing against her skin made Janet restless. Her heart was crashing in her chest.

She turned around. Seeing Ethan‘s handsome face, Janet stood on tiptoe and pecked him on the lips. A blush painted her cheeks. “Well, I had to submit my designs for the competition by tomorrow morning. Unfortunately, one of my colleagues splashed coffee on my laptop. I just don’t have anything to submit now because the laptop broke down. I’m actually very upset about it. Can we talk tomorrow?”

Ethan pursed his lips as he thought about it. “Did your colleague splash coffee on your laptop on purpose, or was it an accident?”

Janet didn‘t want to talk about it. She felt annoyed to even think about Kaya.

“Her intentions don‘t matter to me anymore. I have lost all my drawings, and it s***s. I put a lot of effort into it, you know.” Janet‘s shoulders slumped with exhaustion. She had been busy all week designing for the project, but a cup of coffee had ruined all her efforts.

The expression on Janet’s face answered Ethan’s question.

“Oh, don‘t beat yourself about it. It doesn‘t matter if you don‘t get selected this time. After all, you had just joined the company.” Ethan rubbed her hair comfortingly.

Seeing the disappointment on her face, he kissed the corner of her lips. “There will be plenty of opportunities in the future.”

“Hmm.” Janet nodded. It was Kaya‘s arrogance that irked her, and she hated the woman for destroying her hard work.

However, Ethan‘s kisses made her forget all about her work problems. She was mesmerized by the man, who wrapped her with his love and warmth.

Ethan pressed her against the wall and kissed her until the two got breathless. “Since you can‘t submit the design tomorrow, sleep early tonight.”

Janet’s lips were numb, and the burning trails of his touches made her dizzy, Ethan somehow managed to wake up the wild side of her.

Janet went to bed, replaying the kisses in her head over and over again.

The next morning, Kaya went to Janet‘s table with breakfast.

However, Janet was still mad at her.

She scowled at her and looked away.

“I thought about what happened yesterday again. Sorry I might sound harsh last night, but I was simply angry and hurt that you misunderstood me. Anyway, I bought you this sandwich and chocolate. Let‘s just forget what happened yesterday, please.”

Kaya placed an exquisite box of chocolates on Janet‘s desk. Although she sounded sincere, the complacency in her eyes was unmissable. “This brand is very expensive. I don‘t think you‘d have tasted their chocolates before. They are delicious.”

Although Kaya was smiling at her, Janet somehow felt the woman was disgusting and hypocritical.

Janet put the chocolate aside and ignored Kaya.

Just as she was about to sit down, the lights on the entire floor went off, and darkness engulfed them.

“Gosh, is it a power outage?” someone exclaimed.
