A STOLEN KISS FROM THE CEO! - Season 2 Episode 21
Denise walked into Ella’s office wearing a priceless smile on her face.
“Good morning, beautiful! Hmm…something smells delicious,” Denise licked her lips and took a seat opposite Ella.
“Good morning, mama bear!” Ella said in an excited tone. Her eyes sparkled as she welcome Denise to join her in the meal she was eating.
“You know I can’t resist a deliciously made dish.” Denise grinned as she took some portion of food for herself and started eating. “Yummy! Your chef is the best in the world.”
“By the way, are you aware of how beautiful you look this morning? You are glowing, gal!” Denise complimented.
“Oh please, don’t make me blush,” Ella’s cheeks reddened as she smiled.
“I am serious, Ella. Could it be from the excessive and healthy food you’ve been eating lately?”
“Have I been eating that much?” Ella said quizzically with raised eyebrows.
“Of course, take a look at your snack table.” Denise gestured towards the other end of Ella’s office. “it’s almost as if you’re having a snack party. Nevertheless, that shouldn’t bother you. Leon must be draining you physically. So I’ll advise you to eat more.”
“Oh Denise, you and your silly mouth,” Ella chuckled out loud.

Denise joined in Ella’s laughter for a while before her face turned all serious.
“Do you have any idea why Silvia would want to see you? I just feel something is not right. I hope she’s not up to anything shady,” Denise wore a puzzled expression.
“I have no idea why she wants to see me but I’m dying to find out,” Ella replied. “That’s one of the reasons I invited you over. I wanted both of us to put our heads together and assess her motives. Also, if she tries anything funny I’ll make her pay dearly.”
“Good! I like that!” Denise beamed with satisfaction.
“Are you aware that the F&K fashion brand name has been replaced with AR brand name? Also, Silvia told me that Kyle is currently hospitalized, due to a road accident. As if the doom that befell the F&K fashion company is not enough, it now has a new CEO by the name of Luke Robinson; who happens to be an adopted son of Albert Robinson.”
Denise’s mouth fell agape and her eyes widened as she gawked at Ella in disbelief. “You don’t say! Oh my goodness! This is just too juicy to be real! What about the former insane CEO? Where does she fit in, in all of this?”
“My dear,” Ella grinned, “Chloe’s case is the worse. According to Leon, she was disowned and disinherited by her father. As if that wasn’t enough, she was sent to a psychiatric institution outside the country.”
“What! Are you serious right now? Wow!” Denise stared at Ella in disbelief.
At that moment, the intercom on Ella’s desk rang and Jane informed her that Silvia was around.
“Send her in,” Ella said curtly and dropped the phone.”
Silvia walked into the office timidly and shut the door behind her. She took a few calculated and trembling steps toward the two glaring ladies before her. She stole furtive glances around her surroundings and marveled at the luxurious decoration, which greatly intimated her.
When she was just two meters away from Ella’s desk, she stopped and went down on her knees.
“Ella, Denise, I know you both hate me for all the evil that I have done in the past. I have…”

“Shut that hole in your face, Silvia!” Denise spat out angrily. “Who gave you the right to address Ella by her first name? How dare you claim familiarity with us after all the spiteful things you and your evil friend have done? She is known as Mrs. Treshvire and you will do well to address her properly except you want a dirty slap from me.”
Ella smiled inwardly at Denise’s fierceness. She didn’t need to say much whenever Denise was around her. Denise was like a nursing mother lioness who would defend her cub with her dying breath. Also, Just like Denise, Ella had a strong feeling that Silvia was on a mission. Hence, she was eager to see the outcome of the meeting.
“Stand up Silvia and take a seat,” Ella said in a calm but firm tone. “State your mission here and why you said your life depended on it.”
Sylvia stood up and walked towards Ella totally ignoring Denise’s deadly glares. She sat down and adjusted the collar of her shirt.
“Thank you, Mrs. Treshvire,” Silvia forced out a brief smile. She swallowed hard severally to calm her nerves and steady her pounding heart, before speaking up.
“Due to the current state of my uncle and his indebtedness to the Robinsons, we stand a risk of losing everything my uncle had worked for. Frost is nowhere to be found and the new CEO is out for my neck.”
“This is just the beginning of your misery. You’ve seen nothing yet,” Denise scoffed.
“So how does that affect me,” Ella stared intently into Silvia’s eyes with a burning hatred.
“As the only staff of the company who is related to one of the owners, I have been given an ultimatum to pay back the sum of two hundred million dollars on behalf of my uncle.”
“Is that the reason why you wanted to see me, to tell me all this rubbish? Ella lost her temper and flared up. “You think I care what happens to you and your bloody uncle? Do you think I give a shit about what anyone wants to do with you? You must be clearly mistaken?” She paused for a while as she could sense that something was out of place.
“Denise, please get in touch with the security department, I want three security personnel sent here immediately.”
“Sure!” Denise smartly used Ella’s intercom to make the call.
“Tell me truthfully Silvia, why exactly have you come here.” Ella carefully scrutinized Silvia’s behavior.
Silvia’s erratically drumming heart quadrupled as she sensed imminent danger. This was due to the sophisticated button-sized micro camera that was discreetly and perfectly attached to her shirt. It was difficult to distinguish the black button-like micro camera from the other black buttons on her shirt.
From the moment Silvia stepped foot into Ella’s company, she had been streaming a live video to her new boss.
Due to Ella’s new line of scrutiny, Silvia knew that her time was up. So, she carefully slid her hand into her pant pocket, brought out a single white pill, and before Ella could sense her sudden movement, she threw the white pill into her mouth and swallowed it.
