Flashback!

The six people in the large, air-conditioned room had smiles on their faces by the end of the meeting. They all rose to their feet to congratulate each other on the new partnership. They talked some more for a while. (mostly how they look forward to working with each other and making billions). Then the investors and their lawyer took their leave, leaving Samuel in the conference room with his lawyer, Selina.

She approached him where he was standing."Another Job well done. Congratulations, Sam."

"A win for me is a win for you too. Congratulations to us all." Sam responded.

She nodded. "So how are we going to celebrate this victory?" She adjusted his tie. Not that there was something wrong with it.

"What do you mean?" Sam asked with a perfectly arched brow. As far as he remembered, they've never really celebrated any of his victories. Well, she was someone to congratulate him on his achievements and only on two occasions have they celebrated in his office. They had victory talk over a bottle of wine. Samuel couldn't help but think Selina was referring to something more this time around.

"Dinner at my place to celebrate. I'm perfectly okay coming over to your place if you want."

"I really appreciate your kind gesture, Selina but that won't be necessary. My Girlfriend already has something planned for me tonight and I can't let her down."

"Is She capable?" Selina asked as she folded her arms.

"What are you insinuating?" Sam countered, trying his hardest to remain calm.

"I heard she just turned 20. Does she know what it takes to love a man like you? Is she capable of satisfying your needs? She should have left you for us while she goes for a guy of her age. Have you ever given it a thought that she might just be using you? For material purposes and then have another guy of her age whom she's so much in love with?"

Samuel was shocked. He couldn't believe all he heard just came from Selina. Before now, they've only and always had a professional relationship. Never had she meddled in his affair, except it had something that required her opinion as his lawyer. Selina knowing Gabriella's age was just evidence that she's been doing some crazy research about his love life and that irritated Sam to the core.

"With due respect, Selina, Whatever I do with my private life is really none of your business and that includes who I fall in love with. You can say whatever you like about me but don't you ever talk about my girlfriend that way again. And I would appreciate it if you stop meddling in our business"

Selina nodded slowly. "Noted. I was only looking out for you because I have your interest at heart."

"But since you have plans with your girl tonight, what about tomorrow or the day after? Just a celebratory dinner, nothing more."

Samuel would have said 'Yes' to her invitation if she hadn't said some rude and unbelievable statements about the love of his life.

"I won't be able to attend!" He spoke with finality, leaving no room for argument.

"I've been in your life before her. You know that, right?"

Samuel chuckled as the realization hit him. "Don't tell me you have some sort of crush on me?"

"And it took you forever to realize it." She rolled her eyes.

"It was never my intention to fall for you, Samuel. It just happened. And since then, I've been doing my best to ensure you notice me but you never did. I've served you, directly and indirectly, gone extra mile for you to get great deals with your partners. I cared for you more than I should have and then what happens? You chose another girl over me. What hurts, even more, was the fact that you chose someone far younger than me which means you're indirectly saying I'm not good enough."

"I'm your client, Selina, I pay you extremely well for all of your services. And in return, I think you owe me a duty to act in my best interests.

r long but I clearly told her I'm not interested because I have you."

"Her father used to be my lawyer but he retired and told Selina to take over my affairs. Turned out she's been at my beck and call not because she owes a duty to me as her client but because she wants something more from me."

"Up till yesterday, she had acted nothing but professionally to me. I only saw her true colours today."

"I never shared a passionate kiss with her and I would never share any passionate kisses with anyone that isn't you. She was about to peck me when I wasn't looking, I changed my position and her lips landed on mine. She pulled away before I could even push her from me."

"I don't deny the fact that she's done so much for my company in terms of giving advice and negotiating with partners. The only reason she walked out of Carter's Inc not fired today is because of the respect I have for her father but honestly, I can't stand her anymore."

"I'm sorry you had to fire your lawyer. I'm sorry for making up stupid theories that ain't even true. I'm not usually the jealous type but it broke my heart seeing someone send you such a message."

"I'm ready to let go of anyone or anything that comes between you and I. There are other lawyers who will be willing to handle the affairs of my companies and would do just as great as Selina or even better than her."

Samuel caressed Gabby's cheek. "I know you trust me. I'll also feel the same way if someone sent you a text like that. I'll never cheat on you, baby, You're more than enough for me."

Gabriella connected her lips to Sam's for a long passionate one kiss. "Thank you for everything. Thank you for making me feel so special."

"I make you feel so special because you're indeed very special to me so no need to thank me."

She ran her fingers through his hair, relieved that they were cool and both happy again. "I love you, Sam"

"I love you more, babe." He kissed her forehead, rose to his feet and surprisingly picked her up in a bridal style.

"Sam!" She chuckled, as she already had an idea of where he was taking her and what they were going to do.

"The pizza!" She reminded. "It will get cold, " she added.

"You didn't make a comment about it when I came in so let's just pretend we don't have a pizza in this suit, " Samuel responded.

Gabby smiled. "Don't you want to receive your gift yet?" She teased.

"I'm sure it won't mind waiting for a while. I'm in the mood to pleasure you, my love. Perhaps it will remind you how much I love and I'm addicted to you. I can't wait to be inside of you...."
