NIKKI

Sweet and up-front conversation with Louis was absolutely relaxing. He was an open-minded and composed man. How Damon described him was the opposite of the Louis sitting in front of me. He was laughing so carefree and lively. I might not know about his past, but one thing was for sure. He had moved on.

"I can't tell Damon about this yet. It's not that I didn't like to join his company, but I realized that it is time for me to create my own world. My brother might've stopped counting his money, but I have saved enough for new investment. It is my dream to have a restaurant like this, Nikki. I just love food so much."

His expression filled with hope, and it was epic to see this side of him. He was a visionary. I was sure he would achieve his dreams in no time.

"Then why do you work in the company?"

"I want to have corporate experience. I need to learn things about management. Starting a new life with a new goal is not easy. There are few complications. But being near my family lessened it a bit, " he explained. I watched him as he sliced off his steak, then ate a big piece. "Hmm..." he hummed, chewing his food. "The steak here is good. By the way, Nikki, how's my brother as a boss?"

"He pays me well, he pays me so well, and he pays me incredibly well." I exhaled. "That's all. I don't want to bad mouth him, but your brother is demanding. However, I do receive good compensation and a yearly raise." It was true. Though working for Damon was torture, my wage was high compared to the other assistants working in a corporate company in Manhattan.

He smirked. "That sounds incredibly boring. My brother is a workaholic."

"Very much so."

Louis lifted his glass and took a gulp of his wine. "Do you have any future plans, like being self-employed in your own business?"

I shrugged. "I didn't think of that. I have no time to think about creating a new world like you, but I do admit that it's a good idea."

"Why don't you join me?"

I blinked. "What?"

"Join me. As I said, I'm building my own restaurant. It's not that I want to steal you away from Damon, but you have your own life and—"

"W-what are you saying? You want me to come work for you in your restaurant? Why?"

"Let's see, " he paused, running his tongue on his lower lip, "I can help you. You won't be stressed anymore. My restaurant would be near the beach, and you'll have a beautiful view. We could watch the sunset together during breaks. I may not pay as much as my brother is paying you, but I can promise you growth in your career. I did a background check on you, Nikki. You have a double major. You hold a culinary degree, too. You're definitely fit for the job."

I can't believe this! How was I supposed to tell Damon? He won't let me work for Louis—not when I knew he was having second thoughts about me dating him.

"Why me? Why would you want me for your business? I am not capable of—"

He pressed a finger on my lips, shushing me. "You are capable. I want you because I want you. Simple. Everything is ready. I already have what I need. A place, people to work for me, except a competitive assistant like you."

I wasn't ready for this. It surprised me, yes, and I liked the idea. But, it still felt wrong.

"I don't know what to say, Louis. Damon won't let me go. He rejected my resignation letters several times. Your brother might get mad at you, or at me. We're just going to start a misunderstanding."

"I'm sorry if you think that way. It's not my intention. I will properly tell my brother about this. Don't worry about it. Just trust me, Nikki. I had a feeling that you would love this, too. Especially when I see how Damon treats you. I'm not saying he is bad, but you need to live your life." Louis assured as he reached my hand and gave it a tight squeeze. I heard those lines before. Claire quoted it the same way.

"I like it. You said you felt the same. I think we'll make a great team or maybe something more..." he added.

Didn't I want to hear him say this? Why did I feel so blue? I couldn't help but worry about what Damon is going to say. I wanted Louis, yes, but I wasn't capable of betraying my boss.

"I will think about it, " I concluded. "It's not that I don't like it. It's a great offer, really. But I need time to process this on my own."

"Right. I can wait, Nikki. Don't worry, I expected that you would refuse, but I'll tell my brother about this. I just hope you'll want to come

ever agreed. Anyway, we don't have much time. We can talk about this later, " Damon dismissed. He ordered an attendant to take our suitcases into the jet.

"Nikki. Call me, okay?" Before I could answer, Louis cupped my face then deeply kissed my lips. I heard Damon grunt then stepped away.

I nodded and embraced him before marching toward the plane.

When I got inside, Damon was already in his seat. A flight attendant was serving clubhouse sandwiches and fruits for refreshments. I watched her as she poured orange juice into the glasses. I awkwardly sat across from Damon.

"Do you want to stay?" he asked, as he sat a linen napkin on his lap.

"No. Please no, " I whispered.

"Then eat."

"Enjoy your meal, Mr. Cavendish, Ms. Francesca." The flight attendant said softly before she left.

After the snack, Damon drew out his phone and frowned at the screen. I didn't notice how gorgeous he was earlier. Dressed in a casual black coat, white dress shirt with two opened buttons on the chest, and a black scarf that hung on his shoulders. He didn't shave his facial hair, but it was impeccably trimmed, and he smelled marvelous. I instantly ached thinking of running my fingers along his smooth, ample chest down to his stomach.

The pilot abruptly spoke his opening speech, snapping me back to reality. Until then, Damon didn't say anything.

Was he upset? Was he mad because I came to the airport with Louis? Or he just didn't really want me for his brother? It would be much better if he at least says something. I cleared my throat.

"Damon?"

"Hmm, " he responded, but his focus was still on his phone.

"I want to know what you think of me and Louis."

He smirked, then shook his head. "What else should I say? Didn't you want this?"

I shrugged. "I just want to know."

"Did you do it already?" he asked randomly, his voice rough.

"What?" I mouthed. "Did what?"

"I'm sorry." He gazed up at me this time. "I mean, did you fuck him already?"

"What?!"

"You heard me."

"Yes. But why are you asking me like that?"

"Because he's my brother and I'm curious."

"Well…" I swallowed, "to answer that question. No, we didn't."

His eyes peered. "Why don't I believe you?"

"Then that is your problem. And so what if I did?"

His jaw clenched. "If you want to do it, at least do it privately."

Silence. He was talking about the kiss. I pressed my lips into a thin line.

"This is crazy, " he rasped, running his fingers through his hair.

"I know, and all of this began when we kissed. Can we just forget all about that? I'm grateful that Louis feels the same for me."

He shook his head. "I'm sorry, Nikki. That isn't simple."

"Of course, I understand. I shouldn't have kissed you. I shouldn't have come over that night, and I shouldn't have—"

"No, Nikki. I don't think I'm able to stop." He looked at me and his expression was unreadable. "Can you do it then? Can you date me behind my brother's back?"
