He was late, the manager walked him inside and told him he had to stay until the dinner was done.
“I have to take care of some business else where, so you'll be on your own for a couple hours. Got it?” The manager said.
Again, he only nodded.
As they walked into the restaurant, all eyes went to him as he passed by. But he didn't look at any of them. He wondered if the others were already eating without him. He hated that but it was the manager's fault that he was late, he insisted that he go buy something nice to wear. He figured it must be important. He could hear whispering, it caught his attention and he looked in the direction he heard it. He seen a man sitting with another man, they smiled at him.
The manager lead him to a private business room to the back. He opened the door. When he stepped through the door, he was met with a light scent of perfume. There was no one else in the room but that girl.
He turned around and was ready to stomp out of the restaurant when the manager caught him by the shirt, shoving him against the wall to the side. The manager leaned in close to his ear and whispered,
“If you don't do this, I'll tell the company, I'll tell the boss what you've been up to. No matter how much you cry, no matter what you do, he won't let you get your way.” The manager stood up straight, looked into the room, “This is more the liking of the company, seeing their two young idols getting along well, maybe even dating. Even the fans will surely approve.” The manager looked back and there was someone standing not too far away, ready with a camera.
“You can't do this!” He snarled, he even tried to pull away from the manager.
The manager pushed him into the dining room.
He stood glaring at the door.
“Why don't you sit down and talk with me.” She politely said. She smiled and batted her eyes, acting innocent, acting like she didn't know what was going on. “Sit.”
He looked over his shoulder at her, “Sit. And talk? Nothing more?”
“Yes.” she said, she watched him circle to the other side of the room. He sat down in the chair furthest from her. She got up, grabbed a glass from the center of the table and the pitcher of water and carried them to him. She sat the glass down and poured the water into it, “Have something to drink.” She slid the full glass to him and went back to her own seat.
He stared at the glass and was about to drink when he heard the sound of a camera shutter behind him. He raised his hand and backhanded the glass, sending it flying across the room. It flew past her and hit the wall, shattering to pieces. She didn't flinch, only sat with a smile on her face.
“I don't like being told what to do.”he growled. He leered at her but she didn't look away.
There was a knock. The door opened and two people walked in carrying two plates of food and other side dishes. He watched as one plate was set in front of him.
“I hope you don't mind but I ordered for you. I hear you like sushi. They have great sushi here, so I hope you like it.”
He politely thanked the wait staff but once they were gone, he pushed his plate away.
She picked at her food, taking small bites. When she seen he wasn't eating, she put her chopsticks down, “I hope you're not like this for the rest of the night. I just want to get to know you.” She smiled sweetly at him again, “I thought maybe you were interested in me as well since you were…”
“Since I was, what? What did I do to make you think I was interested in you?”
“You spoke to me and you kept flirting…” she looked down, her face blushing. She pushed her hair behind her ear, tilting her head to one side, exposing her creamy white neck. Hoping that it would entice him.
“I did nothing that no other guy was doing. Besides, I was drunk and was feeling pretty crappy because…” he stopped himself, at a time when he and his noona hit a rough patch, he mistakenly made this girl think he wanted her, “I have a girlfriend. She has my heart,” he tapped his chest, “In this life and the next.”
That smile she was wearing, that look of innocence in her eye, disappeared. “You're going to be mine, whether you like it or not. Your manager will make sure of that.”
They glared at one another.
Silence filled the room for two hours…
