"So what were you and Anita talking about before I walked in on you two in the kitchen, " Stanley asked interested as he walked Lauren to her apartment.

She stopped in her tracks and he did the same.

She turned to look at him and folded her arms. "Turns out I wasn't officially invited to the dinner. You lured me into coming with you."

Stanley scratched the back of his head shyly. "I'm sorry. I wanted you to come with me so I had to use Anita's name to avoid you refusing."

Lauren smiled, "Your sister already apologized on your behalf."

Stanley's lips curved into a small smile. "I'll remember to thank her later."

Lauren nodded and they continued walking towards her apartment with their hands intertwined.

"We also talked about You, me and Rita." She mumbled after a while.

"But mostly about me and you." She added.

"Anita plays the role of an elder sister and a best friend in my life. She has always been there to listen to all my talks, whether they make sense or not. So she knows about what me and you feel for each other. I hope she didn't make you feel uncomfortable?"

"Not at all. We only talked about the truth of the matter."

They finally reached Lauren's front door and she turned to look at Stanley. Worry was evident all over her face.

She took Stanley's hands in hers and caressed it. In the process, she noticed he wasn't putting on his wedding ring. She heaved a sigh and looked into his eyes.

"Are you sure this is what you truly want? Are you sure you want me? It's not too late to stop whatever is going on between us." She said with a heavy heart. Lauren loves Stanley so much and for the sake of that love, she is ready to do whatever he wants her to do.

Stanley held both sides of her shoulder and looked into her eyes as he spoke. "You're what I need in my life, Lauren. I love you, I want you!" He said sincerely.

Lauren ran her right hand over her face.

"I swear, I tried not to fall in love with you because it is forbidden. One, you are my boss and two, you are married. I tried not to care too much about you but I couldn't help myself.

o I gave him a short leave."

"Wow, Congratulations to him." Lauren smiled.

"Yes. I was meant to inform you but I don't know how it slipped my mind. Sorry about that." He said to Lauren who nodded.

"No problem" She assured.

"We can go visit him and his wife on Tuesday or Wednesday, " Stan said.

"Sure, I'll fix that in your schedule."

Stanley and Lauren waited until their bags were loaded into the car before they hopped in.

They engaged in funny and random conversations until they reached Lauren's apartment.

Lauren travelled with one box but she came back with two extra. Thanks to Stanley who could not stop buying dresses, shoes and jewellery for her.

He helped her take her luggage in.

Lauren closed the gap between herself and Stan and wrapped her arms around his neck.

"Thank you for pampering me and thanks for all the stuff you bought for me." She said sincerely.

Stanley stole a kiss from her before he replied. "You're welcome, my love." He tucked a strand of hair behind her ear.

"We just came back from a trip so we will take tomorrow off to rest as usual. But I'll be coming over to see you. Let's say, at noon. What do you think?"

"I'll be expecting you." She smiled.

"Take care of yourself, I'm only a call away if you need anything."

Lauren nodded.

"Take care of yourself too and drive safely." She tiptoed and gave him a kiss on his lips.
