''Could you carry these out front to Mrs. Baker's desk please, Tyler?'' 

My boss was a nice man, in his forties, and he definitely knew how to run a business.

''Sure.''I accepted the pack of papers he handed over, and began walking out of his office to Mrs. Baker's, the woman in charge of all the very annoying paperwork. 

''Gosh, if the piles keep coming like this, I'll be here till midnight!''she exclaimed, throwing her hands up into the air. 

''I'm sure you'll get through them just fine, Mrs. Baker,''I winked before walking off towards my desk. Mrs. Baker was in her fifties, she'd been working here for over fifteen years and basically everyone loved her. Me and her had a great work relationship, just like she did with everybody else.

I sat down on my comfy office chair, adjusting the tie on my neck, feeling it squeeze just a bit too tight. 

I'd been working here for three years, and the way I'd found this place was quite surprising. I'd been on a job hunt for a long time and I was getting desperate. So, I contacted a friend of mine who was into mechanical businesses, and had worked in one for a while.

He got me a few job interviews that all declined me, saying I was too inexperienced and too young. A few months later this same company contacted me, saying they'd like to invite me to a job interview. I was shocked - I hadn't even applied myself, but I of course, accepted the offer and came for an interview. Turned out they liked me so much that I was working the next day. 

I'd made my way up the job ladder, now working as a marketing manager, which did bring a good income. 

A bunch of emails later, I was ready to leave. ''I'm off,''I said after stepping out of my office, and everyone bid their farewell before I rode the elevator downstairs. 

I got into my car, a black BMW, and began driving through the busy streets of New York. Since it was rush hour, it took me 45 minutes to get back to my apartment. 

When I finally sat down on my black leather sofa, my body ached of exhaustion. I opened a beer and looked out of the huge glass windows in front of me, overlooking the whole of New York city.




I walked through the busy streets of London, the wind like ice on my face. Yep, autumn was not my season. And apparently I used autumn instead of fall now, the british were having an impact on me.

When I finally unlocked the door to my flat, I took off my coat and my boots, setting them neatly against the wall. I was more than happy to be back in this warmth, but still, I wasn't warm enough yet. I turned the kettle on and made myself a proper cup of tea with milk and one sugar. 

I sat down on the sofa and lifted my feet up, just about to enjoy myself when my phone went off, I groaned and stood up. I grabbed it from the counter and saw I had a message from my fiancé, Nathan. 

On my way home, honey. Can't wait to see you xxx

I smiled sheepishly at the text, and typed a quick one back saying I was already at home waiting for him. I'd met Nathan 3 years ago, weirdly, at a supermarket. Super cliché, but he'd bumped into me and when I caught a sight of him, I knew he was a good person just by the look in his eyes. We'd met up a few days later, exchanged numbers and went on from there.

I loved Nathan, the way he cared for me and always made sure I was content and happy. He'd proposed 3 months ago, in a beautiful location at a castle garden nearby. It was the most gorgeous day, and I was finally at a good place in my life. 

The door opened and I jumped up like a 5 year old, forgetting the fact that I was a 26 year old mature woman. 

''Hi beautiful,''Nathan smiled at me, his british accent crisp on his tongue.

''Hey,''I smirked back, and he wrapped his arms around me.

''You're still wet!''I screeched, getting out of his grasp.

Amusement danced in his eyes. ''You'll just have to deal with it,''he said with a chuckle, and began chasing me around our flat. Yep, we were definitely still immature. 

I laughed hysterically when he catched me, my chest rising and falling rapidly. He kissed me, the stubble on his jaw pressing against my skin, but the roughness was comfortable. 

''How was work?''I asked as I leaned against the kitchen island, watching Nathan take off his coat. His body was defined, his weekly gym sessions evident in his muscles. His blonde hair was messy because of the wind outside, but an effortless look suited him best. 

He slumped down on the sofa and I bit my lip, a smirk appearing on my lips.

''These idiots at work annoy-''he started, but cut off as I began massaging his shoulders and neck.

''Mm..''he said in pleasure, I could see he'd shut his eyes. I rubbed my hands over his muscles and kissed his neck, but he took me by surprise and kissed my lips instead. I smiled against his lips, feeling like everything in my life had finally fallen to place.
