NIKKI

THE REAL party began right after the auction. However, my mind didn't seem to let go of Damon and his ex-wife, thinking about how they got back together. I remembered when Damon wouldn't stop sending me messages when I left him. One day, he just stopped. Maybe he realized he still loved his ex-wife and ran back to her.

"Looking for someone?" Luke asked, bringing me back to reality.

"Uh, no. I'm looking for Jake." I emptied my third shot of vodka and lemon.

"He must be outside. Do you want to look for him?"

"Uh-no, it's fine. Thank you."

"Then, do you want to continue dancing?"

"I thought you are not a party person?" I teased.

"No. I'm really not."

I chuckled. "Okay. Be my guide." I grinned, giving him my hand.

He took me back to the dance floor. I wrapped my arms around his shoulders and let his hands envelope my waist. A romantic Ricky Martin song was playing in the air.

"So, how long did you work for Cavendish?"

"Two years."

"Why did you leave?"

"I resigned." Actually, I didn't. I left. "It's complicated."

"I heard you are a chef too?"

"Yes. My father has a business. A small restaurant."

"That's amazing. You are talented."

"We dream of expanding the restaurant someday."

"Keep the goal. I won't be surprised if you are a CEO yourself in the next few years." He grinned.

I had heard those words before. Ah, from Louis. His restaurant was a success.

"Yeah, thank you."

"Hotel B is planning to work with your former boss. There are other companies in line, but hearing his reputation in the business caught my attention. I want his design for my new hotel in Los Angeles."

What a

kay… it's okay." Jake wrapped his arms around me and rubbed my back.

"I want to go home, " I told him.

"Okay, shall we go now?"

"Yes. I don't want to see him. I don't want to talk to him. Get me out of here, please." I sobbed hard. It was too much to take in.

"Who are you talking about?"

"I believe she's talking about me."

I shivered at the sound of Damon's absurdly melodious voice. I pulled away from Jake and spun around to face Damon.

"Oh, goddamn it, Cavendish. Stay away from me!" I cried.

"Is this what you really want, Nikki?"

"Yes! This is what I want. I want you out of my life!"

"Whoa! Calm down, you people!" Jake stepped between us, with a confused look on his face. "We have visitors here. This is an event. Can't we talk in a civilized manner?"

Damon stepped away. "No, it's fine. I'm leaving anyway, " he whispered harshly. "But at least hear this, Nikki. You had no idea of the aftermath when you left and how miserable I became fixing your mess. I'm sure you don't even know what I'm talking about, but you will." He shot me a warning look, then turned away.
