A Long Night (The Black Hoodie - Pt 2)

Disclaimer : I'm a huge KPop fan and you will come across names and photographs of KPop idols in most of my stories (The photographs and pics are downloaded from the internet and I do not have ANY intellectual property right over them). They are my muse and inspiration in so many ways. The incidents and characters are fictional and have no resemblance to any K pop idol in any manner.

(Jenny's pov)

Mother had invited our new neighbor for dinner. Finally I would get to see the mysterious boy's face! I jumped as the bell rang and opened the door with anticipation. My jaw dropped as I looked at the person in front of me.

Dressed in a smart blue suit (a far cry from the usual obsidian goth look!), jet black hair styled to perfection, the onyx eyes held me in a trance, as if I was pulled into the vortex of an endless black hole. I stuttered," Err.. Hi! Do come in."

With an amused look, he nodded and walked in. I took in his attractive, graceful and powerful presence, as my parents came forward to welcome him.

We were seated together, opposite my parents. It was a matter of minutes before the awkwardness vanished as we were talking and laughing like we had known each other since ages!

I learnt a lot about my neighbor tonight.

25 years old Jake was born with a golden spoon! He had inherited his parents' publishing company. A bibliophile and a fitness enthusiast, Jake had successfully achieved tremendous success at a very young age. The media had dubbed him the most eligible bachelor and he had remained free from scandals and gossip so far. He was known to be extremely strict and professional (for his age) as an employer and a hard taskmaster!

Despite all my attempts to resist his obvious and inescapable charms, I found myself, inexplicably, drawn towards him. His knowledge, his creative mind, polite behavior, positive attitude and sense of humor made him the perfect man...

However, I had to control my feelings for my handsome neighbor and concentrate on the discussion at the table. It was well past midnight before we finally saw Jake off.

I sighed as I changed and got into my bed, trying hard not to think or dream about the onyx eyes..... As I tossed around on my bed, I knew this was going to be a long night!

There was something unsettling, mysterious and yet, familiar about those obsidian orbs......!


I continued to be distracted at work and it irked me. Forcing myself to concentrate on my work, I picked up the file and read the first page for the 10th time! I groaned and gave up, walking towards the coffee machine. The caffeine would probably help me....

I made myself a large cup of sweet, hot coffee and walked back to my desk. By the end of the day, I had finished all my work and looked at the clock with a smile. As I got up and packed my bag to leave, Boss called me.

"Come in, Jenny," Boss replied when I knocked at his door. I walked in to find him busy talking with a guest. Boss looked at me and said, "Jenny, meet Mr Blair. You would be assisting him from tomorrow onwards for our new project. He really loved your ideas!"

Smiling, I turned towards Mr Blair. Mr Jake Blair, my neighbor- the boy in the black hoodie who had given me a sleepless night!

To be continued..........
