[center [font "Bookman" He led the woman to his car and unlocked the doors. He opened it, allowing her to side in before he closed the for and walked over to the drivers side. He got in and turned n the car. His eyes looking over to her.
She was attentive too. How much could those brown eyes see? Malikai shook his head with a chuckle.
“Yes, but I am handling it now. My business is my own. And right now, my business is taking you to your second job.” [right [pic https://i.imgur.com/STApel2.jpg]]
Kai wasn’t in the mood to talk about his problems. In fact, they didn’t need to be brought up at all. Though, there was something about her brown eyes, the way she stared at him. He shook the feeling off. “About this thief, surely a hard worker like yourself, working to jobs wouldn’t steal anything. So, who do you think it was?”
[left [pic https://i.imgur.com/Sa2sSs2.jpg]] [center [font "Times New Roman" The [i Miss] made her smirk, her own hands in the pockets of her oversized cardigan as she looked up at him. [b [#8c266c "The nursery on Dufferin."]] she informed him, watching the conflict on his face. She didn't know what it was for, but she assumed it wasn't an expression he made often, and that made her in turn feel just as triumphant.
She waited by the car for him to unlock it, slipping into the seat as soon as it was offered to her, and making sure to do the buckle up before pulling her water bottle from her bag to take a drink. When he was in and seated, she hummed thoughtfully and looked over at him, brown eyes watching him with some scrutiny.
[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/CmbFZTL.jpg]] [b [#8c266c "So do you always rush in at some minor inconvenience or are you runnign away from something?"]] she asked abruptly. Maybe it wasn't her place to ask, but Angelica had never really had that good of a filter. She was as honest and blunt as she could be. [b [#8c266c "Because we both know that could have and should have been the managers job."]]
[center [font "Bookman" A victorious smile beamed over his face. He chuckled with a nod allowing her to leave. She was quite an interesting woman and that wasn’t something he said too often about others. Malikai stepped out of the room after her, leaning against the front desk in the lobby. His hands pressed against the marble as he waited patiently for her return.
He instantly caught sight of her and walked in her direction. As she slipped passed him, he felt her arm brush against his. A magnetic pull had him following after her. He slipped his hands into the pockets of his pants. Looking over to her he smiled. “Where is this second job miss?” [right [pic https://i.imgur.com/STApel2.jpg]]
He was hoping to get a name, something. She no longer had a name tag against her chest. This woman was a mystery to him. A stunning one at that. And even though he had a finacee, Malikai knew a ride wouldn’t do any harm. He was merely doing his job.
[left [pic https://i.imgur.com/Sa2sSs2.jpg]] [center [font "Times New Roman" Angelica watched as the other women got up and left the room with the manager, leaving her and this man alone. She cocked a brow at his offer to take her to work, and shrugged. At least it would get her there without being [i too] late. She stood and turned toward the door, looking behind her shoulder.
[b [#8c266c "I'll meet you in the lobby in five. I have to grab my bag and change out of this fucking uniform."]] she told him, leaving him standing there while she went to do just that. He was an interesting character, that... Oh fuck, she had no idea what his name was. Well, that was awkward. She put her street clothes back on, a pair of high-waisted mom-jeans and a loose blouse tucked into it, and a pair a canvas sneakers. No name tag. She had noted him looking for it, so it gave her a bit of satisfaction that he wasn't going to be able to find it.
[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/CmbFZTL.jpg]] When she found him again in the lobby, she gave a casual wave and headed his way, pulling her shades down over her eyes and shrugged on her cardigan again. [b [#8c266c "Alright, let's get the hell outta here."]] she grinned, slipping past him toward the door, her arm brushing his.
... Well that was an interesting little thrill.
[center [font "Bookman" He listened to the women who spoke, but his eyes were on the red painted lips of the other woman who sat quietly. She was quite stunning with her short dark hair and pouty lips. Her brown eyes filled with distain. He kept his eyes on her as she shifted her leg across the other. His diverted his attention back to the others before his eyes found her once more as she spoke.
He raised an eyebrow, a smirk twitching at his lips. She had such a foul mouth. No one ever dared to speak directly to him in such a manner. “I can take you there myself.” He offered before looking back at the other three ladies. “Lying is not tolerated here. I suggest you come clean or you will loose your job.”
[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/STApel2.jpg]] Malikai turned his attention back to… His eyes drifted over her damn cardigan that blocked his view of her name tag. “I’ll take you to your other job. It gives me time to talk to you for a while.” He pushed himself from the desk and reached for her hand.
[left [pic https://i.imgur.com/Sa2sSs2.jpg]] [center [font "Times New Roman" To Angelica, being called in and accused of theft- even in the guise of a simple question was bordering on offensive. Sure, it was probably one of them- maybe the one that wouldn't look at this guy who had asked- but it [i wasn't] her. It was suffice to say that the young woman from Oxford looked put out at the meeting that was cutting into her commute time to her second job. She'd had the graveyard shift at the hotel so she could get there on time, and now she would be late.
Red-painted lips were pouty, and her brown eyes were scornful as the man spoke with such a thinly veiled pretentious nature that it made her sick. All of his niceness just came across as false. No one was that calm and warm when someone was [i stealing] from them. Her arms crossed under her chest, and one leg moved to cross over the other. She studied him while the other girls started speaking rapidly, saying it wasn't them, and it immediately made her think that maybe it was more than one of them stealing.
He was... well, younger than one would expect the owner of a hotel to be. Maybe a bit cocky, if she had to assume. He was pretty, very conventionally attractive, and she was sure he knew that. Despite herself, she found herself lingering on him, her eyebrow arched with an amused expression.
[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/CmbFZTL.jpg]] [b [#8c266c "Does this ever actually work?"]] she asked abruptly, her smooth, accented voice breaking through the cacophony of the definitely-guilty housekeepers. [b [#8c266c "Like, does anyone [i actually] come out and fucking say 'Oh yeah, it was me'? Cause otherwise this meeting is making me late for my other job, so can we please get our collective shits together?"]]
[center [font "Bookman" Marriage was a difficult step to take. It was something his mother once told him before he went for it. The proposal was a spur-of-the-moment kind of thing, so was asking Marisol to move in with him. It was partially why he left the house and her more frequently. The whole thing was becoming a bit too real, and it was fucking with his head at this point. In a few months, Malikai would be married and none of it sat well with him, but he needed this to happen. To take over the company completely, Malikai had to get married.
He’d left his fiancée again, with the photographer. All to visit another hotel they had in the area. For what? A simple issue the managers could have addressed. It seemed as though the housekeepers were stealing again. One of them to be exact, though neither would confess. It was a simple issue with a simple solution, threaten their jobs. Tell the truth or get fired.
[right [pic https://i.imgur.com/STApel2.jpg]] Malikai stepped inside the building. Gold paint and black trim covered the walls, decorated with similar colored frames and other decors. He straightened up the cuffs of his suit. He headed down the left corridor and into the office room where five staff members and a manager sat, waiting for his presence. His eyes drifted over the three women who turned with a nervous smile. He chuckled internally. They were always nervous around him. Though his attention drifted to one in particular, who kept her gaze straight away from him. [I interesting.]
“What seems to be the trouble here ladies? You are all such important assets to this company. I’d hate to let one of you go on something like this. So please, if one of you know or if you are the person who has been stealing, you have until the end of the day to come forward. If you don't feel comfortable going to your supervisor or manager. I will be here all day and you can come to be.” He gave them all a warming smile.
