I am planning to extend half an hour when my staffs knocked on my door. "Ms. Shana, we will go ahead since it is already 7."
"Okay, be careful on the way home and see you on Monday." I did not stand up from my table just waving at them.
"You too, and do not tire yourself. It is bad for you and the baby."
"No, I will be here just for half an hour then I will go home later. Thanks!" They waved goodbyes and closed my door. I continued my work so that I could go home early. My baby was very energetic lately. It keeps on moving and kicking me.
I was even thinking that he/she misses Colton. I also miss him too. Since I met him rather saw him, my heart was something else. I know I should not have, it was the attraction I felt for him that it grew more than that.
I was happy that we became closer but a part of me was contented with the situation we build. Even seeing each other inside my office, I was contented and happy. Our baby was happy too… I wanted to tell him about it but my mind, heart and soul was afraid of aftermath.
I will stop thinking about it first; I know it is not good for the baby thinking too much. I just go with what makes our baby happy, the rest… I will see when I cross the bridge when I get there.
A knocked from the door and it opened. My eyes were looking at the person walked towards my table. My heart was beating uneasily. 'Gosh, I miss him.'
"You're drooling." I heard him say.
He was smirking at me. "Why are you still here? You should be going home and it is not good for the baby." He said to remind me.
"Yes, I know. I just finish this and I am done in a few more minutes." I explained. I continued with my work and focused on it. I quickly done because I could feel that he is watching my every moves and I feel conscious.
I arranged the files and put it all in one folder. Arranging my table without glancing at him I was nervous inside but I tried not to show it.
Once I was done, I lifted my eyes on him and I am right he was staring at me intensely. "W-Why are you looking at me like that?" I asked nervously. The way he looked gives me something like he knew my secret or it was just in my mind because I feel guilty.
He did not answer me for a bit moment then he sighed. "I was just thinking… where to eat." He said and I do not believe at all. Of course, I did not say it loud.
I nodded. "Okay."
He stood up. "If you are done, let's have dinner outside, my treat."
This is the first time he asked me out for dinner. For the past months, since we were close he usually dropped by my office and goes or goes out from the company and bye to each other in the parking area but not inviting me to have dinner with him.
"Are you sure that you invited the person to dine out tonight?" I asked confusedly. "I mean, you are single love by single beautiful, sexy, attractive women out there. But then you are inviting me with big tummy to be with you."
"What's wrong with you? You are all the qualities you just mentioned a while ago." he answered me without taking his eyes on me. "Beside your big tummy is not big deal. I prefer to be with you tonight and stop looking down on yourself you are still beautiful being pregnant. Even more beautiful... it suits you well." he added then I blushed.
It was new to me I know this is just a friendly dinner I should not put another meaning but I nodded as my answer.
