really. ”

”You thought what then? ” Aria asked, raising a brow.

”Nothing. Nevermind. ”

”Well, I think we can get you a job in the accounting department at Brookland Corporations. ” Arthur shrugged.

”Really? Do you know somebody there? ”

In Arthurs mind, he thought to answer with, ”No bitch, I own everybody there. ” But he didn want to sound arrogant.

So he said, ”Yes. Actually, my dad owns the company. ”

Aria was shocked to her bone and marrow. Jacob Millers son was in her house.

She wanted to scream, but suppressed the urge and kept her cool.

”Oh, I see ” she said.

”Yes, so you can come by the office tomorrow or next. Ill be there. ”

”Thank you so much. Im so grateful. ” Arias face turned red as her emotions got the best of her.

She was so happy and was nearly shedding tears of joy.

”Its the least I can do. And Im sorry for everything again. ”

Arthur looked out the window, and it was pitch black. He enjoyed her company so much; they lost track of time. They didn know when it got dark.

He looked at his watch, and it was past 11 pm already.

”Damn its late… I forgot to check the time ”

Aria picked up her phone and checked the time, too.

”Wow, its really late. ”

”Um… I don think its safe for you to go out there this night. ” Aria said as she put her phone down.

”Why not? ” Arthur asked, squinting slightly in confusion.

”This neighborhood isn safe, especially at night. ”

”Really? ” He asked.

”Yes. You can spend the night here though… If you like. ”

”But for safety, I wouldn advise you to go out there tonight. ”

Arthur stroked his beardless jaw, thinking. He hadn spent the night in a strangers house before. He also didn want to inconvenience her by staying over.

But she doesn mind. He thought. Moreover, staying would be better than taking the risk of going out in this dangerous neighborhood by this time of the night.

”Okay. Ill stay. ”

He took out his phone from his pocket to send a text to his mom that he wouldn be coming homing tonight.

”You can have the bed. ” Aria said, trying to be a hospitable host.

”What? No no no no no… I couldn possibly do that. You have the bed and Ill sleep right here on the couch. ”

”Well, I also can let you do that. What kind of host lets his guest sleep on the couch? ” She retorted.

”Okay… what kind of man would I be if I let a lady sleep on the couch while I lay comfortably on the bed? Thats not very gentlemanly, is it? ”

They continued on and on about who gets to sleep on the couch, presenting their various potent reasons.

The debate was very interesting, though.

When it seemed like they had reached an impasse, Arthur suggested, ”Okay, fine, heres a better idea. Why don we both share the bed? ” Arthur said, taunting her, eagerly waiting for her to decline.

”Okay, fine. ” She yelled playfully, putting her arms at akimbo and gave him a look of haughty derision.

Arthur was surprised that she agreed to that.

They both chuckled maniacally and stood up and marched to the bedroom, laughing. Like they had known each other for years.

They both made the bed together like a team.

Then Aria realized that she was hungry. They were having such an engrossing time together. She forgot that she didn have lunch or dinner.

”Are you hungry? ” She asked Arthur.

”A little. ” She replied.

Aria went to the kitchen and got some snacks for them.

They finished eating and then went to bed together. They left a wide space in between them and slept on edges of the bed.

As the night went by, the space grew smaller and smaller, and in no time, the space was non-existent.
