Ronald was the only one left in the building. Even Gabriel, his best friend had gone home. Well except for the cleaners and the security guards who were cleaning and guarding the building respectively.

He was trying to finish some work concerning a contract with some foreign investors who will be coming over in a few days.

Forty three minutes later, Ronald decided that will be all for the day, he will continue the rest the next day.

He found himself very eager to go home. Not only because of his daughter but also because of Adrie and Raina.

A small smile crept to his lips at the thought of Raina. Whenever he was around her, he had this weird feeling in his stomach. He knew he was attracted to her but have no idea if she felt the same way.

Ronald stood up from his chair and started arranging his table and at the same time putting some important document in his brief case. He picked up his phones, briefcase and walked toward the exit area of his office. He switched off the light and walked out, closing the door behind him.

"Hey Ronald." A lady's voice said which made Ronald stop in his track. He was close to stepping into the elevator.

"Not again." he muttered as he turned to the brown headed girl who called him. He thought he was the only one left in the building. She ought to have gone home. He wondered what she was still doing in the office.

"It's been a while Ronald. Looks like you've been avoiding me lately." She said with a small smile as she approached Ronald.

One thing Ronald had known Loretta for is that she's a fashion freak and she never cease to amaze every one with her dressing sense. She dresses very classy but professional. Just like now, she was wearing a slim fitted dark pant trousers which showed her curves with a white sleeveless shirt which showed a little bit of her cleavage.

Her chocolate brown hair was let down and it fits her perfectly. Despite the fact that working hours had ended a long time ago, she still look good in the sense that, her make up was still perfect on her face with her attractive red lipstick.

As usual, her dressing will never be complete without her jewelries. She finally approached Ronald and despite the fact that she had her jacket placed on her left arm and her classy handbag on her right hand, she still managed to pull Ronald into a hug.

Loretta noticed this was the first time this week that she's bumping into him and it was already the end of the third day of the week. Perhaps, he has been avoiding her purposely.

Obviously, Loretta works for Ronald and that makes Ronald her Boss. She's the head of Human Resource and also an important member of the board.

Apart from the fact that Loretta is obsessed with Ronald, she's very good at her job, her ideas are always brilliant and she's way too smart. "Beauty with brains." that's what they call her in the office.

Almost everyone in the company admired her for her efficiency. Most especially the female workers and they all knew she's obsessed about the Boss which is why they dare not flirt with him because no one wants to face her wrath.

To be honest, Loretta is a very attractive woman. If she passes by your side, you will be tempted to look back and take a glace at her. She just had that aura in her.

Ronald will agree with anyone that she's beautiful but he never had any interest in her. He had made it known to her severally but she keeps telling him that as far as he's still Single, she will never stop trying.

And that kept Ronald wondering, How will other women approach him when she's all over him?. That was even why he stopped taking her out on dinner dates with his clients because with the way she was always being cozy around him, people assume they were already a couple.

"Why are you just leaving the office?. You should be in your house by now." he said as he pulled away from the hug.

"I was just trying to finish up some work." She replied as they walk side by side towards the elevator.

He pressed the button and when it opened, he allowed her go in first and he followed suit.

"So do you mind if we hang out this weekend. You can come to my place or I can come over to yours and you can take me out if she like." She completed with a grin.

"I will be very busy this weekend Loretta. Maybe some other time." He said which made her sad. She tried not to show it as she looked away from him.

As far as Loretta knew, It is not a crime to love someone. Ronald had hurt her feelings so many times but she never gave up on him and she never

to me, it's not fun."

"Okay then. Perhaps I will talk to a friend of mine who owns a restaurant. If he can employ you."

"Really. You'll do that for me?" She asked with a smile.

"Yes, I will get in touch with him tomorrow."

"That reminds me, my friend Gabriel wants me to introduce you to his wife. Her name is Jemma and she's pregnant. About six months. I told him I was going to ask you. Maybe if you need a friend or something."

"Sure. That will be nice."

"So tell me about your company." She leaned closer, eager to know what exactly he does for a living.

Ronald explained to her as he ate and she listened intently.She also asked questions about certain things. Raina was not only beautiful, she was also smart.

He finished his food and did the dishes himself. Raina offered to help but he declined.

After that, They proceeded to the Sofa where they sat.

Raina was seating on the upper end with her leg on the Sofa and a glass of wine in her hand and she faced Ronald who was seating at the other end of the sofa.

"How was life for you and Adrie before I met you guys?" He asked.

"it was okay until Frank turned wild and started hitting me." She answered looking at nothing in particular.

"Do you think he's out there looking for you guys?"

"Maybe, maybe not."

"What if he comes back for you?, begging to forgive him that he has changed." he said and Raina chuckled.

"Frank doesn't apologize and I don't think he will ever be sorry for what he did to us. I may forgive him but I will never accept him back. What I feel for him is hatred and nothing more."

"I have to tell you something and I hope you don't get mad at me." He said.

"What is it?" She asked curious.

"I hired a private investigator to track him down."

"Why? How did you even do that when you don't know his name?" she asked.

"I have my ways Ray and the person in charge is a professional." he said.

"Why?" she asked again.

"I just want him to pay for what he did to you and Adrie. Deal with him personally before handling him over to the police." he said and a sad smile found its way to Raina's face.

"I appreciate it Ronald but you don't have to do that. Just leave him alone. Nemesis will catch up with him." She said and Ronald nodded slowly.

"I should go to bed." She said as she stood up from the couch with her now empty glass cup.

"Me too, or else I'll be late for work tomorrow." He said as he stood up also.

He collected the glass cup from her and took them to the kitchen.

"I had a wonderful evening chatting with you." Ronald said with a genuine smile. He enjoyed spending time with her and secretly hoped for more evenings like this.

"I had fun too. Goodnight." She replied him with a small smile after which she went to her room.

Ronald smiled as he watched her go to her room. Everything she did affected him.

He sighed as he turned off the light in the living room after which he proceeded to his room. He plopped down on his bed and Slept with a smile on his face.
