"Kimberly, please go back to your room." I whined. She ignored me and headed in our direction.

"Kimmy," she said and extended her hand for a handshake, making me look at her in disbelief.

Before Caspian could reply, I said, "Kimmy? Kimmy? Since when did you become Kimmy?" I asked incredulously. No doubt she recognized the hot piece of meat in front of her.

"Shut up," she said, her hand still outstretched.

"Caspian Pierce, Kate“s significant other," he said, glancing at me through the corner of his eye.

Significant other! I didn“t know what to say to that.

Kimberly looked at him strangely and said, "With all due respect, sir, that is a strange word. No one says that. Besides, aren“t you her boyfriend?"

"Well, Kat and I are not yet at that stage of our relationship where we label each other. We are dating, but I“m not her boyfriend."

I tried to keep the tears at bay, I really did.

"What does that even mean?" Kimberly retorted, "You can“t be dating and not be her boyfriend. It doesn“t work that way."

"This is between me and Katherine, isn“t it? So I would appreciate it if you would mind your own business." Caspian didn“t seem to be fond of this topic---I could tell with the royally pissed of expression on his face---but I couldn“t care less.

He had his arm around my waist the whole time, securing me firmly to his side. I couldn“t pinpoint the exact emotion I was feeling; anger, sadness, disappointment, rejection.

Kimberly had an anger look on her face while he still kept the pissed of expression. I decided to walk away from the conversation.

"I“ll head to bed." I said quietly.

Caspian finally turned his head to me. He detected the forlorn look on my face and I saw his face soften.

"Katherine..." He tried to talk but I walked away as fast as my league could carry me. The last thing I heard was Kimberly shouting before I slammed my door shut.

A few minutes later, Kimberly walked into my room carrying a tub of ice cream and a piece of my pie in her hand. She quietly laid them down on my bed and pushed the ice cream towards me.

I managed a small smile. "Thanks, but no thanks. I“m not really in the mood for ice cream."

She didn“t say a word before pulling me in for a hug. I cried silently on her shoulder. All that could be heard in the room was my quiet sniffles and the small soothing words she kept mumbling in my ear. We pulled apart after some time.

"I“m sorry, I shouldn“t have come out. I ruined everything," she said, looki

ed.

If it goes anywhere after yesterday that is, I said quietly.

He left my office soon after that.

The rest of the day was my usual uneventful way of living.

I got home with a major headache. Caspian called three times. I jumped on my bed, only taking of my shoes before falling into a deep slumber.

I awoke to the loud banging of the door. I blinked twice then heard it again. Someone was shouting outside my door.

I walked into my living room to see Kimberly with a frustrated look on her face.

"It“s your boss. Tell him to leave. He“s been at it for seven minutes now."

"Why didn“t you send him away yourself? You know I don“t want to see him. He..." We were interrupted.

"Katherine, I swear to God, if you don“t open this door now I will break it down."

I wanted him to keep knocking but I broke. I opened the door right when his hand was about to strike the door again.

"You stood me up! It“s eleven! Our date was at nine," he said looking totally pissed but exhausted. He was in a royal blue shirt with the first three buttons unbuttoned and black pants, looking totally delicious. His hair looked like he had run his hand through it a million times.

"I never said I was coming. You decide that." He looked angry and frustrated--at me.

"Can I come in?"

I rolled my eyes but opened the door wider and let him in.

************

I“ll say this: I“m an amazing person. This was probably surprising, given my past attitude. I“m on holiday now so let“s hope the updates keep pouring in. This was three days after the last update.
