BJ must have felt bad about the way things ended on Wednesday because on Monday morning he brought my usual chai, a vanilla bean frappuncino and a strawberry cheese danish from Dunkin Donuts. He has no idea that I’m boycotting Dunkin Donuts (personal reasons) and couldn’t even eat the danish but it’s the thought that counts.
I spent the majority of the day following up on emails and making phone calls and then in the afternoon, the advertising team presented a campaign to me in the conference room. I was really impressed that BJ led the presentation like a seasoned professional and even threw out some buzzwords. Maybe he was learning something from his internship after all. Once they finished, I made them write down the few pointers I had then they started to file out.
“I missed you this weekend,” BJ said, joining me at the end of the conference room table.
I scoffed. “Shut up. No you didn’t.”
“Yes I did. Four whole days without my favorite boss lady. It was miserable,” he said.
I rolled my eyes and gathered my things.
BJ stepped closer and put a hand on the table in front of me so I was kind of pinned in.
“Brandon, if you do not step away from me right now…” I warned.
“If I don’t step away from you, what? What are you going to do, Reese?” he challenged.
“I’m going to kick your ass. Now move.” I tried to push past him, but the kid is a lot stronger than he looks. I rammed into his arm and he didn’t even budge.
BJ began laughing which only pissed me off further. I tried to duck under his arm but he lowered it. An epic battle of me trying to get free and BJ refusing to let me ensued. It was completely childish and unnecessary. Then he put his other hand on the other side of me so that I was completely pinned in with my back against the table. I could feel his hips on my tummy.
“Whatcha gonna do now, Reese?” he taunted. He was so close that I could smell the dark chocolate he’d eaten during lunch on his breath.
I was super irritated but oddly turned on. His body pressed against mine felt way better than it should’ve.
“BJ,” I said as evenly as I could. “I have a lot to do. Will you please let me go?”
“What do I get out of it?” he asked.
“You won’t get reported to HR,” I smiled.
He bit his lip as if thinking about it then finally released me. Before I could get far, he ruffled my hair all over my head. I flicked him off before walking out the door.
Whitney was standing outside the conference room when I walked out. She gave me a weird look, but I just smiled and walked past her.
When I got back to my office I started thinking about the pros and cons of hooking up with BJ. I could definitely lose my job if I did, but that was only if anyone found out. BJ and I could enjoy a night of fun and keep it between the two of us. But the best part of flirting with BJ is knowing that both of us want to fuck each other (him more than me obviously) but not being able to act on it. If we did, it would ruin that whole relationship completely.
I can’t even believe I’m thinking like this.
