Trapped In Her Heart Book 3 Chapter 185
"And why would you feel that way? How do you know that you will f.u.c.k things up before you even give it a shot? Have faith in yourself."
"Because I am scared Seb, I don't wanna lose her forever." Pausing for a while, Brandon added, "What if I tell her about my feelings but she doesn't feel the same for me?"
"And what if she does? What if even she feels the same for you but is reluctant to tell you because she thinks that you don't?" Sebastian asked.
Scrunching his brows, Brandon oursed his lips, "Then what if I f.u.c.k up after we get into a relationship? If things don't work out well between us, everything will be ruined."
Placing his hand on his desk, Sebastian explained, "When I told Ellie about my feelings, I was very scared. I had no idea how things would work too and I was very worried about screwing things up but that never stopped me from doing what my heart wanted. So I proposed Ellie and now we are doing just fine, in fact, we are doing awesome."
Without waiting for Brandon's reply, he added, "You can't ruin your present and stop yourself from doing something that you really want to think about the future that is yet to happen."
"What if she doesn't feel the same for me?" Brandon asked.
Shrugging his shoulder, Sebastian answered, "Nothing." Pausing for a while, he continued, "I have learned many things from Ellie and one of them is to always follow your heart no matter what the consequences and result is. So what if she doesn't feel the same way about you? I mean you can't force someone to feel the same way about you, right?"
When Brandon nodded his head, he added, "At least you will always have a satisfaction in your heart that you at least tried."
Just then Ellie entered the room. "I am so sorry for being late, I" she stopped midway when she noticed that Sebstian wasn't alone.
Breathing a sigh of relief, Sebastian beamed, "Finally, there you are."
"I got stuck somewhere but I am glad that you had company." Looking at Brandon, she smiled, "It's good to see you again."
Giving her a weak smile, he nodded his head and quietly left the office.
Noticing how the usually energetic and happy Brandon was exceptionally quiet, Ellie frowned, "Is he alright?"
"He is in love with Charlotte but he is scared that she isn't" Pulling her in his lap, he gave her a brief kiss and sighed, "I missed you."
Hooking her arms around his neck, she chuckled, "We saw each other in the morning."
"That was two hours ago, I want you beside me all the time," he complained.
Running her fingers through his hair, she asked, "Don't you think you are becoming more and more clingy day by day?"
"Are you complaining? Are you tired of me already?"
Vigorously shaking her head, she chuckled, "Of course not, I am just scared that Boji and Bojo feel quite lonely these days, we don't give them enough time."
"What makes you think that way? They play with each other all day and they really don't miss us," he answered.
Helplessly shaking her head, she inquired, "Why do I feel like you bought Boji to distract Boji?"
"That is a very serious allegation and I am very offended." Pulling her closer, he added, "And now you have to pay a price for offending me."
Pushing him away, she squealed, "Seb, I have many things to do."
"Nothing is more important than your offended boyfriend right now," he snapped.
"You guys, at least lock the door before you both do stuff." Helplessly shaking his head, Noah sighed, "People in love are so senseless."
Quickly getting down from his lap, Ellie grabbed her bag and rushed out of the office.
Glaring at Noah, Sebastian snapped, "Knock the door before entering and why the hell do you keep disturbing me early in the morning?"
Raising both his hands in the air, Noah chuckled, "Ah I am so sorry for interrupting your lovely time lover boy but I am here to discuss something important today."
"What is it?"
"The court hearing for the case is scheduled tomorrow in at 11:00 am, our presence is needed," Noah informed.
Keeping quiet for quite some time, Noah inquired, "Did you tell Ellie about it yet?"
"I don't think it's something that she should know, I just don't want her to take any kind of unnecessary stress. The matter is already solved, right? So there is nothing to worry about,' Sebastian answered.
"Are you sure?" without waiting for his reply, Noah explained, "Look, I haven't told Melissa about it too because she will definitely tell Ellie about it but I don't know how long I can keep this away from her. I don't think Ellie will like it if she learns about this from someone else, you need to let her know Sebastian."
Keeping quiet for quite some time, Sebastian inquired, "What about Mr Hudson?"
"He is all ready to corporate, there is no problem from his side."
Getting up, Noah added, "I would suggest you talk to Ellie."
"I will tell her after everything has been settled down, she is never going to be at peace if she learns about this before the court hearing and I don't want that to happen."
Noah sighed and nodded his head, "Hmm, that makes sense. You tell El about it tomorrow after the hearing and I'll tell Mel too."
"I'll have to find a way to sneak out of the office tomorrow and"
Cutting him off, Noah said, "Dude, I am going with you."
"But if we both sneak out, they will figure out that something is wrong," Sebastian stated.
Thinking for a while, Noah suggested, "Lets just tell them that we have another meeting with someone and we both need to attend it."
Nodding his head in agreement, Sebastian added, "Let's do that then, I'll let Ellie know about it."
