Zachary Pov

The memorable day of my life. I won the award for the third ever time continuously and I couldn't even ask for anything more. It made me so happy and top to that I had Juliette witnessing the moment when I got the award. I wanted to know how she was feeling about it. Just as I thought, she was happy with my achievements even though she congratulated me after I got the award only for once still, from the smile on her face anybody could decipher that she was happy for me and only by knowing it I was happy too.

The rest of the night went in talking to some of my business investors, meeting new people, people congratulating me and everything was just going great with a person beside me. Juliette...

I knew I made her disappointed when I didn't acknowledge how she looked but then right before me I saw many people even my business investors complimenting and acknowledging her beauty and she even smiled and then it made me think she must not be disappointed because judging by a number of compliments she got for looks what difference would it even make if I do compliment her? Probably nothing.

So, I ignored the topic and concentrated more on the people before and tried to build contacts for my business. But I could see the discomfort in Juliette's face on those heels. Finally, she excused herself and I did have an idea that she was going to sit somewhere and would want to rest her feet. After she was gone, I had some discussions with a man who was my teacher when I was in school. His son is also a knowable businessman and for that, together with their family, he was attending the function. I was very happy to see him after a long time. We talked and discussed about his son's and my business and when I felt somebody's arms circling my back. I turned around to look at that person but soon regretted even looking at the woman who was Ms. Loana Ularu.

"Zackie" she whispered into my ears which made me shiver in disgust.

"How have you been? I heard that you got married. I know it's just a rumor right Zackie?" I looked at her right hand to see a glass of wine. And what in the world was she wearing?

"Ms. Loana Ularu. It's pleasure to meet you. Yes, I did get married. Now, will you please excuse me? I'm an important discussion with this man over here" I pushed her away from me as politely as I could. The woman is really clingy and I just dislike her not only for her inappropriate clothing sense but also for the way she speaks with people.

"What? Oh my goodness! You are really married?" she tangled her arms with mine and clung to me even more. I looked back at my former teacher as he just looked with dislike at the woman and I knew it that currently because of Loana clinging to me, people must be talking about us.

"Yes! I am" I said slowly.

Did she not get the point?

"So where is she? I don't see her though" she looked every direction searching for Juliette.

"Zackie you are such a liar! Don't joke with me" she laughed, a throaty laugh.

"It's Mr. Sullivan for you!" I said as I felt the patient limit of mine decreasing with each and every second she stood beside me. I was only tolerating her because her father was like a mentor to me and my former business partner. I seriously don't understand how her father who is a disciplined and man of principles man doesn't oppose to the way she behaves. She purposely clung to me pressing her chest to my arm and rubbing against me and might I add I didn't like it even for a bit.

Inappropriate way to act with a married man in public.

"Aww c'mon Zackie why the formalities? Everyone knows we had a-" I cut her off.

"Enough!" this time I glared at her and she unwrapped her arms from mine.

"Excuse me! I need to find my wif

oor calmly letting the water soak her.

"Juliette!" I called her and she opened her eyes and looked up at me.

"My head hurts, " she said and I wondered if she was sober by now.

"Come out now! You will catch a cold!" I said and forwarded my hand for her to take.

"I don't want to talk to you, " she said and closed her eyes leaning her chin on her hand which was on her knees.

"What?"

I looked at her and then crouched down to her level right on the open glass doorframe and watched as she didn't look my way.

"Why?" I asked.

"Nothing!" she replied but still didn't look my way.

"Why did you drink in the party?" I asked and saw as she clutched her soaked dress but still didn't look my way.

"I don't know" she replied.

"You don't know why you drank to point where you couldn't even stand straight?" I asked with amusement clear in my voice.

"Yes, I don't know. Now, leave me alone!" she had a sudden uproar in her voice and she glared at me squinting her eyes whenever the water went into it.

Okay! I guess, she isn't sober yet!

"Leave me alone!" she said and looked the other way.

"You know I can't do that!" I said truthfully first time ever letting her know what I truly meant.

"Well, then what do you want? You can't leave me alone, you can't stick up to me! Then what?" she snapped at me and then before I could open my mouth she started crying.

"Leave me alone!" she cried and hid her face using her hands as she wept and wailed wiping her face and she looked the other way.

She confused me. What did I do? And why is she crying all of a sudden? I got up from my place and walked in even though the soaked me as well, but I didn't mind it and walked in as I crouched down next to her and made her look at me. She squinted her eyes and closed it shut stubbornly not wanting me to see her eyes.

"Hey, Juliette" I called her and held her arms and pulled her and thankfully she allowed me and we stood up.

"Look at me!" I said slowly more like a whisper.

"No!" she sobbed.

"Look at me, " I said and caressed her cheeks with my knuckles.

She turned her head my way and finally opened her eyes letting me see her beautiful blue orbs which were sad and kind of dark. The shower water drenched us and I moved to stand before her stopping the water coming her way. She looked up to me and held my hands which were on her cheeks and I couldn't when stop myself when I leaned in and planted my lips on her.
