There was a really awkward silence.
I felt uncomfortable.
The sound of my stomach echoed in the car's interior.
I felt my cheeks burn.
What a poop figure.
Only to me.
I hoped that the passenger had not heard anything, but looking at him for a moment from the corner of my eye, I noticed a slight smile on his face.
But let's forget about this moment by explaining how I ended up in this situation.
My work at the company was starting to bear fruit and my colleagues increased their esteem for me, which gave me immense pleasure.
The boss then decided to entrust me with the collection of an important package from a sponsor, for a very important commercial agreement.
I could no longer feel proud, I was finally rewarded with a responsibility.
But my enthusiasm was broken by a voice that joined the request of my boss.
- I'll go with her -
The boy with the porcelain skin had spoken.
- Good, so you can do even more knowledge - the boss nodded.
I was screwed, but I had no choice.
We started towards my car.
And here's a summary of how I ended up here.
- Are you hungry? - a hoarse voice brought me back to reality.
- I'd say my stomach has already answered for me - I replied, smiling embarrassed.
- After we have withdrawn the package, we can go and nibble something. I know a place nearby where you can eat very well. If that's not a problem for you - I felt his eyes on me.
- Ok, no problem - I said without much enthusiasm.
I was really uncomfortable, but hunger was making itself felt.
The package was taken, I could admire the beauty of the company with which we would have collaborated, and noticed their professionalism.
We started toward the little restaurant, which was really a few steps away from us.
It was a welcoming, discreet structure, but it gave off a sense of family, which I didn't mind at all.
He ordered for me, proposing the goal of making me taste new dishes, and I starved myself contented without replying.
It was a silent dinner, I didn't pay much attention to my companion, concentrating on the new dishes I was tasting.
Despite his insistence, we split the bill in half and headed for the car, ready to return to the company.
Once in front of the car, I felt grab my wrist and I turned to him, slightly confused.
- Sorry -
At the time I didn't understand, then I had an illumination.
My eyes hardened.
The mere memory of the famous episodes made me nervous every time.
- I know you're still angry, we were very boorish. I'm sorry, me and the other guys aren't like that. Excuse me, really - He looked me straight in the eyes.
I was about to argue, when I was blocked by a totally unexpected gesture.
Rude, but with such penetrating warmth.
He was really the last person I would have expected such a gesture from.
After a few minutes he pulled away from me, stroked my hair and got into the car.
I entered too and started the engine.
We arrived at the company.
- Yoongi - I called him before we got out of the car.
- I'm not saying that it went over what happened, but thanks for the hug -
He smiled at me affectionately.
Only one person was missing.
