After calming down from my cry, I silently waited for Sunni to show up. Once she finally arrived to work, I handed her my letter of resignation. She took my letter and just blankly stared at it for a while before looking back up to me.
"Where's my money?" She asks me.
"My money. I paid you a month's worth in advance. If you want to quit, pay me back in full and I'll accept your letter. Or were you planning on just leaving and keeping the money?"
I had given the money to my parents already. They probably already use most of it to pay for mortgage and bills already. I didn't think this far ahead. I only wanted to quit as soon as I can so I can escape her and the Kim brothers.
"I don't have the money anymore. I'll pa-"
"No money? Then I'm not accepting this."
She tore my letter in half and toss it into the garbage next to her foot. She puts her hands on her desk and leans in towards me.
"Jisoo, I'm sure by now you already know what I need you to do. Work one more month for me to make up for the amount of money that I already paid you. After this month, I'll let you go."
One more month? I don't know if I'll survive one more month working for her.
"I need you to make me look good in front of Jin."
I stare back in disbelief. Now the truth finally comes out of her mouth.
"I smoke, drink often, and I like to go out to parties and have fun, but Jinnie doesn't know any of this. I need you to cover up for me and help me maintain my image in front of Jin."
I could not believe this is what I was hearing from her. I wasn't going to give in to her. I'm not going to do it.
"I don't want to," I replied to Sunni.
"I already told you Jisoo, give me back my money in full and you wouldn't have to," she smirked knowing damn well that I don't have any money to give back to her.
"Just one month. Until I can find someone else to replace you. For an old friend?"
Friend? Friend my butt.
"Why can't you just tell Jin? If he truly loves you, he wouldn't mind that you smoke, drink, and like to party."
"Jinnie is going to inherit the company Jisoo. He's got a lot of eyes on him and those around him. I can't be caught partying, smoking, and drinking. It'll ruin his reputation."
Now that I think about what she had said, she was right to a certain degree. Jin was next to become CEO. I really could careless about Sunni, but it involved Jin. When it comes to Jin, I'm weak and I hated that fact.
"One month. That's it."
"Great Jisoo. I hope that you keep this little talk just between the two of us," she smiled widely knowing that she caught me for another month. I bowed to her and left her room.
After closing her door shut, I turned around and saw Jin in his office. His door was open and he was concentrating hard on his work. He didn't even notice that I was looking at him. I watched as he wrote down notes into a little notepad next to him. He turned back towards his computer and was typing away.
I'm sorry Jin. Please forgive me.
Two weeks passed and I tried my best to not make conversation with Jin or Taehyung. Jin was slowly starting to greet me again. He was really trying for Sunni and instead of feeling blissful, it hurted a bit. I still had that damn breathing problem around him too.
Taehyung was extremely annoying. He was always around me asking to go eat lunch together and asking me to call him Oppa. I don't want to call him Oppa and I won't! I refuse to but he never leaves me alone. I am on the edge. I am this close to just calling him Oppa just so he won't bother me anymore.
Sunni and Jin had a huge deal that they were trying to secure for Kim's Corporation. They were supposed to leave together and go to Kang's Enterprise, but apparently, she wasn't feeling well so she left home early. I mean seriously, is that her only excuse? How many times has she faked being sick? Guess who got stuck going in her place. That's right, me.
It was a contract signing and I was told to organize the contract and bring it along with me to the company. I sat in the same room as Jin and CEO Kang, but I honestly had no clue what they both were talking about. After the signing of the contract, they both shook hands and soon a man enters the room. He looked strangely familiar. I've seen him before, but couldn't pinpoint exactly where I saw him.
"Mr. Kim, this is my son Kang Jisung. He will soon take over this company as I am getting older. You two should get to know one another as you will become partners for the next 5 years," Ceo Kang said as he introduced his son to Jin.
"Kim Seokjin, I've heard a lot about you. I hope to become good friends with you," the son said as he shook hands with Jin.
Kang Jisung? Why does that name ring a bell in my head?
He glanced in my direction and he had a sly grin on his face.
"I wouldn't mind being friends with your assistant either."
He moved towards me and held his hand out to shake hands with me. Not really sure what to do, I shook hands with him. After the handshake, he took out his business card and hands it to me.
"My name is Kang Jisung. Remember it, babe."
He winked at me and all this felt like déjà vu. And it finally clicked in my head. He was the same guy that was smoking at the bar that Friday night. He did the same thing with Sunni, except he put his card in her cleavage. I grimaced at the thought and shook it out of my head.
It was his cigarette that Sunni had taken. It was him and Sunni who led Jin to misunderstood me as a liar. I immediately disliked him. Him and his stupid grin that I wanted to slap away from his face. After giving me his card, Jisung turned to his father and said that he needed to leave for a while. He seemed to be in a rush to leave.
We bid our farewell to CEO Kang shortly after Jisung left. We made it out to Jin's car and as we got in he turns to me and asked me a question.
"Would you be okay if we make a quick stop?"
"No, it's fine Mr. Kim Seokjin."
He smiled sweetly back at me before putting on his seatbelt. I followed and put on mine as well and we set off. We ended up at an apartment complex. He pulls up to the entrance of the apartment and left me confused as to why we came here. He must have seen my face because he soon explained where we were.
"This is Sunni's apartment complex. I wanted to see her real quick since she wasn't feeling well."
"Oh..." That was all I could reply back.
I was hoping that he was going to go in alone while I will wait out here in the car for him, but boy was I wrong.
"Jisoo, could you please do me a favor?"
"Huh? What favor?"
"I need to run to the store quick to buy Sunni some medicine, but could you please cook some rice porridge for her? She probably hasn't eaten yet. I would do it myself if I didn't have to run to the store. Knowing Sunni, she probably doesn't have any medicine in her home. Just get it started and I'll come back and finish it up."
I gazed into his pleading eyes that were full of worries and I couldn't say no. He really loves and cares for Sunni. I agreed to his request and he gave me Sunni's apartment number and passcode.
"She is most likely sleeping right now so try not to wake her up. When I get back you can wait out in the car for me."
I got out of his car and he drove off. I soon found myself in front of her apartment door. I really didn't want to be here, but it was for Jin. I punched in the passcode and the door unlocked. As soon as I walked in, I could see a shirt on the floor in the doorway. It was a male dress shirt.
Jin must come over pretty often for his clothes to be lying around here.
I picked up the shirt and folded it neatly and placed it on the couch. I was about to make my way into the kitchen when I heard some noises coming from a room nearby. I moved closer towards the room and the noise only got louder. It was Sunni and she was groaning and moaning. She sounded like she was in a lot of pain.
I worriedly opened up the door only to be shocked at what I saw. Sunni was naked and in bed sleeping with another man who was definitely not Jin.
