Chapter 4 🏵️
🌷The truth is out 🌷
Claire’s POV 💎
“Who are you and what are you doing in here?” He asked.
Killian Knight?! What is he doing here?!
I can’t believe my eyes. Years ago Killian Knight was simply a name in the headlines, a face in magazines. He was someone I admired but never thought I’d get the chance to meet him. Hours ago he was my intimidating CEO. Granted, I now work in the same office as him, but that was the closest I thought I would get to him.
Now he’s standing in front of me, in nothing but a bath towel. His chiseled, toned body in all it’s full glory.
“I’m the housekeeper” I told him, he didn’t say anything, just stare at me, his lips in a thin line.
“What are you doing here?” I asked him.
“This is my house” he answered.
Killian Knight is the mysterious penthouse owner Lucas was talking about?
“You’re the new housekeeper Lucas hired,”
“Y-yeah….” I stuttered, why am I stuttering.
I’m living with my CEO? Does he know I’m an intern at his company? I pray he doesn’t.
“How did you get here?” He asked me.
Nice, it seems like he doesn’t know about it yet.
“T-the door was open so I stepped in”
Killian cursed under his breath.
” You’re fired” he said.
“Pack your bags and leave now” he ordered.
Just like that? I didn’t do anything wrong and I can’t leave too, because I have nowhere to go from here.
“You can’t just fire me like that” I said. “I demand to know why”.
” For trespassing into my room”
” I’m your housekeeper! It’s my job to go into rooms and tidy them” I said.
” But not this one, not the one that’s locked! ” He roared at me and I almost flinch.
” It wasn’t locked when I got here”.
He glares at me but I’m no pushover.
Why does he keep this room locked? Is that why he wants to fire me? Because I stumbled upon his secret collection of…….. Romantic films? It’s not even porn, so what’s his problem.
An idea crosses my mind, despite the warning bells ringing in my head, I take out my phone and quickly take a photo of the room.
“What do you think you’re doing?” He roared again, if he doesn’t stop doing that, he’s going to have a sore throat and that will be none of my business.
I whip out my phone and shove it in his face.
“I took a photo of the room! I don’t know what you’re trying to hide, but if you insist on firing me, I’ll upload it” .
His dark eyes narrowed.
Way to go Claire, you just had to anger him further.
“Are you threatening me?” He asked darkly.
“Do you know who I am?”
I, emmm,……” I can’t let him know that I know he’s my boss, I best lie to him. “You’re some random rich dude”
I rolled my eyes.
“Fine. Maybe I’ve seen you in magazines” I told him. And I happened to be an intern in your company, I wanted to add, but now doesn’t feel like the right time to mention it.
“Did someone send you here?” He asked.
“N-no, I was duped into spending all my savings on an apartment that doesn’t exist….. ” I explained.
He scoffed, as if he doesn’t believe me.
“Nobody is there dumb”
“Wait a minute” he cuts me off.” I recognize you”
Killian takes a step back and cross his arms across his chest. He cocks his head and takes a good look at me.
Oh no! There goes my internship.
“You’re the girl from the bar! The one who dragged her suitcase in……. The one who……. “He can’t seem to find the right words.
” The bar? We’re you there yesterday? Were you the one who saved me? ” I asked quickly in one breath.
He ruffles his damp hair in frustration.
” I have nowhere else to go……… You saw me with my suitcase….. I was promised a live-in housekeeper position if I scored full marks on a questionnaire. I already signed the contract, you can’t just fire me for no good reason, especially for entering room by mistake” I blackmail him.
He sighed, as if in defeat.
” Three conditions. One, you will not speak of what you see in here. Not even to Lucas. Two, you will never enter this room again. Three, delete that photo now” he seriously.
” But how do I know you’re not going to chase me out after I delete it? ”
I swallow nervously as Killian takes a step closer. He leans down and I catch a whiff of his minty shampoo and aftershave. His smirk sends chills down my spine.
“Are you challenging me?. Cheeky, aren’t we?. And you said you were tricked out of your savings”
” I learned my lesson”
” I hate to lose” he said. ” This penthouse belongs to me, I’m the boss, but why does it feel like you have the upper hand? If you need a place to stay, I have other apartments I can spare. If it’s cash…… Well, I’m not one for handouts, but I’m not short of money. But you’re right, you signed a contract” he said.
” Why does it feel like I’m about to regret my words? He’s definitely up to something.
“It wouldn’t be right of me to dismiss you unfairly. Stay. Do what you want”
Oh, my God! He’s letting me stay!
” Thank you, thank you, thank you” I chant.
I didn’t know what happened or how it happened but I found myself thinking wrapping my arms around Killian and giving him a hug.
What did I just do? I got too excited and………
My eyes widen in horror.
He’s so going to fire me now. To my surprise, he push me off gently.
“Don’t do that again” he scolded me, he turns around and walked away.
I released a breath I didn’t know I was holding.
I did it! I think…..
I take one final look at the mysterious room before I closed the door behind me and return to my room.
I lay on my bed with several thoughts playing in my head. Why does he own shelves of classic films? More importantly, why is he so secretive about it…. to the extent of locking the door? I can’t believe he’s the one who saved me at the bar. I’m flattered.
So that towering figure was Killian Knight. Talk about ‘ Knight in shinning armour’
Is it really over though? Is he really okay with letting me stay? What’s going to happen when he finds out I’m an intern at Knight Gaming?!. I’ll leave that thought for now, we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.
I can’t believe I tried to blackmail him….. That’s not going to go down well. I roll over and bury my head in the pillow. Just when I thought things were finally looking up.
Killian Knight…. I can’t believe I’m actually living with the Killian Knight. Well I have work tomorrow, I better sleep now.
Living with Killian Knight blew my mind last night. But today’s a new day, I need a fresh start. I took my bath and select a cute outfit from my luggage, I want to impress my colleagues and Raven, I wanna show them what I’ve got.
Now all I have to do is avoid Killian at work and it’ll all be fine. Besides, he’s the CEO and I’m just a lowly intern, so the odds of us crossing paths in the company are very slim. I just hope I don’t meet on the way out.
I opened the door as quietly as possible and stick my head out to see if the coast is clear.
“Too morning, housekeeper” I’m startled by Killian’s voice. Great, why do I always have the ugliest luck? What sin did I commit?. I step out of my room.
“That reminds me, I haven’t gotten your name” he said.
” Lucas didn’t tell you? ”
” Where’s the fun in that?” He asked me back.
Hmmm, thinking about it, if I tell him my name he might recognize it and know I’m an intern at Knight Gaming since I have submitted my informations. he might even fire me from Knight Gaming, no I can’t afford that. I’ll give him a fake name.
“My name is Hazel”
“Well Hazel, good morning” he said surprisingly cheerful. “Where are you going? ”
” W-work…… I told Lucas about this. I have a day job, so I’ll complete my chores when I get back”
” Hmmmm, you see, I stayed up all night looking through the contract Lucas drafted and there’s nothing about limiting chores to night. I need you to run some errands for me” he paused and look me straight in the eyes ” Now! ” He ordered.
He handed me a list of chores to be done….. Pick up his suit, pick up his groceries….
I wanted to tell him that these are little things he can do for himself or ask his PA to do for him, but I didn’t, my job will be at stake.
“But… but…. I’ll be late for work if I do all this now” I tried to reason with him.
” Isn’t housekeeping your job too?” He asked raising his brows, a smirk on his lips.
Hmmmm, so it’s a trap. He’s looking for ways to fire me.
“If you fail to complete these chores…. Then surely that’s a good enough reason to fire you” he paused and his eyes move to my phone ” unless there’s a certain photo you’d like to erase”
If I erase the photo, I will lose the leverage to stay here. And if I’m late for my second day of work, what will Raven think of me? This is really hard.
“What are you going to do now?” He asked a wicked grin on his face.
I grit my teeth in determination, I won’t let him win easily.
