Roman Billionaire Series; Falling Into You chapitre Chapitre 6

CORA

"Excuse you!" Lucas could not believe his ears.

"Are you accusing me of theft in my own house?" He snapped. "What card are you even talking about and why the hell would I steal it?"

Listening to his response, I realized I had gone overboard because I had no proof. How could I say it was Reign's personal card when I had already bragged that he was my bestie?

Without another word, I turned and went back into my room. I sat on the bed and hugged my knees, feeling very sad. I regretted not saving Reign's number the moment I got that card. What if I never got the chance to meet him again? The mere thought of this made me feel like crying.

My eyes lit up when it finally occurred to me that I could reach him on social media. However, my bubble was busted when I realized that he was not on social media. How could he live like that?

The closest thing to him which I found was FLETCHER CONGLOMERATES, but that was his company's account. It was probably managed by someone else so there was no way I could reach him.

I became sad again. However, my eyes lit up once more when I realized I could go look for him at his company. Why didn't I think of this from the start?

I picked out a simple dress and wrote down everything I planned to say, in case I was interviewed on the spot. I left the house very early the next day. However, when I arrived at FLETCHER CONGLOMERATES, I was not allowed to see Reign because I did not have an appointment.

I spent over thirty minutes, trying to convince the three receptionists at the counter that Reign was expecting me but they refused me entry.

At this point, a beautiful lady in a black designer dress arrived and the receptionists greeted her respectfully.

"Is Reign in his office?" She asked.

"Yes, ma'am," they replied uniformly.

She went up without sparing me a glance, but I recognized her. How could I not when I had almost died in the elevator of her company?

As she walked away, the receptionists whispered among themselves, "She is so lucky to be Mr. Fletcher's fiancee." "She is very beautiful so it's no surprise that she captured his heart."

Hearing their words, I began to ask myself, "What are you doing here, Cora?"

I turned and walked out of the company. It was stupid of me to keep thinking about Reign and building castles in the air. I wanted to return home but then, I remembered that I needed a job and Reign had promised to help me get a job.

I decided to wait outside for Reign with the hope that he would have to leave at the end of the day and I would get a chance to speak to him before then.

I waited for more than eight hours but did not see any sign of Reign or even his fiancee. Refusing to give up, I continued waiting until it became dark.

The guards asked me to leave because they wanted to shut the gates.

"I'm waiting for Mr. Fletcher," I informed them.

"He already left a long time ago." The guards replied shocking me. I went back home feeling defeated and extremely unhappy.

Lucas was waiting in the living room when I entered and the moment he saw me, he got up and said sternly, "We had an agreement, Cora. I will not tolerate you keeping late nights. I don't want any embarrassing scandals."

Without saying a word to him in reply, I walked into my room and locked the door. I sat on my bed feeling sorry for myself. In the end, I decided to search for a job somewhere else tomorrow and move on with my life.

I picked up my dirty laundry and decided to do them to get my mind off my misfortune. Just before I put them in the machine, the card Reign had given to me fell out of my blue dress.

I stared at the card in shock, since I had searched for it in the blue dress the day before but could not find it. I became so happy and quickly dialed Reign's number.

As it rang the first and second time, I worried that he would not take my call since he did not have my number. The thought had barely crossed my mind when he answered the call.

"Hello," I said.
