NIKKI

I swallowed, suddenly in need of a drink.

The sight of the blonde made me instantly jealous, and seeing him again made me realize that my feelings for him were still the same. I thought I moved on, but I hadn't.

"Good evening, Mr. Cavendish, it's a pleasure to meet you. I'm Jacob Quentin." Jake reached a hand to Damon.

Damon pumped Jake's hand, but his gaze didn't leave mine. "Good evening, Mr. Quentin, " he greeted back, "the pleasure's mine."

"I know that Nikki worked for you before, " Jake said. "I am glad to have Nikki in my team. She's the new General Manager of this hotel."

"Congratulations, Nikki, " he whispered, almost toneless. "Where have you been?" he asked randomly.

Seriously? Did he just ask me that here? It wasn't the time to talk about the past. I didn't tell Jake the reason why I left his company. He should not bring that up right now. I lifted my head, ready for my answer.

"Thank you. Jake hired me, " I said, ignoring his question.

"Oh, we're being rude to your date. I'm sorry, " I casually said, trying not to sound bitter.

"Oh no, I'm not his girlfriend." The blonde answered for him with a smooth chuckle. God, how could she grin so attractively? Damon rolled his eyes.

"She's my ex-wife. Bianca, this is Nikki Francesca, my former executive assistant." Damon introduced us.

She's Bianca? I squeezed Jake's waist again.

"Well, I'm her ex for now, but we're engaged again." Bianca lifted up her left hand, showing the diamond ring on her finger. "Why am I saying this alone, Damon?" She stared up at him, then she ran her fingers on his arm affectionately.

"I hope you are enjoying yourselves this evening, Mr. Cavendish and Bianca. Again, it's a pleasure meeting you. Please, excuse us." Jake cut in, and without hesitation, he grabbed my hand and then dragged me away from Damon and his beautiful ex-wife.

"What's going on with you?" Jake hissed. "You almost ripped my waist out of my body. You didn't tell me everything about your former boss, did you?"

I hushed him, pressing a finger to his lips. "You don't have to say it out loud."

He sighed, then shoved my hand away. "Then at least tell me what happened back there."

God, I don't know what to say. "It's nothing. I'm just nervous to see him."

"Nervous? It was the way you reacted when he told you that she's B

ndro." I smiled, reaching a hand to him.

He shook my hand. "Pleasure's mine, Nikki. I hope we get along."

I smiled. "Thank you, Mr. Alejandro."

"Just call me Luke, " he said kindly.

"Luke. It's a pleasure to meet you."

"It's mine as well, " he said. "Can I steal Nikki for a dance later, Jake?"

"Sure, you're the boss. I'm going to meet some friends out there. I'll leave you two to dance." Jake said, patting his friend's shoulder, but before leaving, he leaned into my ear and whispered. "F.Y.I. He's into blondes..."

"I heard that, Jake. That's not new. It's every man's type."

I smirked secretly, thinking that maybe he was right.

"I'd better go. I'm greeting the other guests."

"Sure."

Jake nuzzled my cheek before he left. Luke and I walked to the dance floor. He held my palm tight as his other hand slid at my lower back, drawing me a bit closer. I gasped slightly. He let out a soft chuckle.

"What's that for?" I asked.

"Nothing. It's fascinating that you're Jake's friend. I barely see him with a woman."

"I can tell why, " I laughed, and then shrugged.

He grinned. "Don't always listen to him. I have a preference."

"Sorry, what?"

"His remark about my type, " he said, flashing out his perfect white teeth. I didn't think it was any of my business, though. But his charisma was refreshing for a boss.

"Do you want a drink?"

Now he was even more amused. "I should be the one to ask that. What would you like to drink?"

"Vodka?"

"Vodka, it is." He nodded in approval. "Come. Let's go get you a drink."
