The Power To Say No
"The greatest battles of life are fought not with fists, but with resilience, strength, and the power to say no."
The music pulsed through the air, filling the dimly lit room with electric energy. Bodies swayed and moved in rhythm, lost in the allure of the night. Brixlee Cyrup found herself amidst the crowd, her red dress shimmering under the disco lights. But her heart raced not with excitement, but with unease.
He suddenly tightened his grip on her, pulling her closer, and his lips crashed onto hers with force. His rough kiss sent tremors down her spine, but she knew, even in their drunken state, that she hadn't consented to this invasion. His cold grip on her shoulder made her shudder as he trailed his lips along her neck and collarbone, his fingers tracing the straps of her dress.
Rage welled up within Brixlee, and she clenched her fists, gathering all her strength. With a burst of fury, she pushed him away, her palm striking his cheek with a resounding slap. The impact sent him stumbling backward, crashing to the ground in a dazed state. The commotion drew the attention of the party guests, freezing the dance floor in silence. Curiosity and concern etched on their faces as they peered at the unfolding scene.
Brixlee despised being the center of attention. The weight of gazes upon her always made her insides tighten, but this time was different. Anger overshadowed her discomfort, and her face flushed redder than the disco ball suspended from above. Seething with fury, she stood tall over him, her voice filled with righteous indignation.
"How dare you?!" she yelled, her voice resonating through the room. "You have no right to touch me like that!"
The young man struggled to regain his footing, but his unsteady steps betrayed his intoxicated state. He looked up at her, a mix of anger and confusion flickering in his eyes.
"Playing hard to get, huh?" he muttered, regaining some semblance of balance as he took a step closer. Brixlee stood her ground, her voice steady.
"Don't come any closer," she warned, her tone firm and unwavering.
Disgust welled up inside her at his shallowness. Yes, he may have possessed looks that turned heads, but that did not permit him to make unwarranted advances. He smirked arrogantly, his words dripping with contempt.
"You want money? I have plenty of it! I'll pay whatever you want. Name your price!" he spat, his tone dripping with condescension, as if she were an object for sale.
She felt insulted and demeaned. No one had ever looked down on her so shamelessly. Her life may have been far from perfect, but she would never stoop so low as to sell her body for money. Her heart churned with a mix of anger and resentment.
If only she had stayed at home, none of this would have happened. She had always loathed parties, but she couldn't bear to let her friend Mace down on his birthday. They had been friends since kindergarten, and her loyalty pushed her to attend, despite her distaste for such events.
Her hands clenched so tightly that her knuckles turned white. The fiery rage coursing through her veins suddenly made her feel hot. She wanted nothing more than to throttle the man in front of her with her bare hands.
Her eyes blazed with anger; the corners tinged with red. Enough was enough.
She could no longer tolerate his insolence. Fuelled by her fury, she snatched a glass from a nearby onlooker and hurled its contents at him. With one final look at his pained and enraged face, she staggered off the dance floor and out the door, leaving him to contemplate the consequences of his actions.
The cool night air outside provided a welcomed respite, allowing Brixlee to finally catch her breath. She found a seat on a chair by the sidewalk, fishing her phone out of her bag. No missed calls or texts awaited her, except for a reminder from her monitoring app about an upcoming interview the next day. She released a heavy sigh, realizing the weight of the challenges she faced.
After three unsuccessful attempts to reach Mace, she resolved to cease her efforts. She couldn't blame him; after all, he was the birthday boy. With sluggish movements, she rose from her seat and made her way to the nearby cab stand.
Hailing a taxi, she climbed in and drove off into the night, leaving the chaos of the party behind. .
Nathan Grey stood rooted in surprise as the mysterious woman disappeared from his sight. Confusion clouded his mind, sobering him up in an instant. The cold remnants of the drink she had thrown lingered on his skin, preventing coherent thoughts from forming. Slowly, he extricated himself from the crowd, making his way to his private VIP lounge.
Voices called out his name, but embarrassment kept him from turning. Pushing open the door, he sought refuge within the confines of his sanctuary. To his surprise, his intended date for the evening still patiently waited, a smile gracing her features. Though they were aware of their connection, he couldn't deny the distraction that had captivated him on the dance floor.
His anger dissolved into a rush of excitement, and a mischievous smirk curled at the corners of his lips.
Yes, she may have been his friend's ex, but that mattered little now that they were no longer together.
"Come to me, baby," he murmured, his hands gliding along her supple curves as he pulled her closer.
Guilt pulsed within her, making her breath come in shallow sips. His face descended upon hers, a slow and tantalizing motion, like a dream fading and blurring before disappearing entirely as their mouths met in a fiery kiss.
His fingers traced a path down her neck, teasingly lingering on her bosom. The intoxicating tension between them heightened as he gently guided her onto his expansive desk. With deliberate slowness, he began to unbutton her top, the fabric giving way to his persistent touch.
But just as desire began to consume them, the door creaked open, shattering the moment. Nathan withdrew from the kiss, a mixture of surprise and annoyance clouding his features.
"Hey, man," a familiar voice called out.
It was Lucas, one of his closest friends. The woman, embarrassed by the intrusion, swiftly disentangled herself from Nathan's arms and hastily retreated from the room. Nathan released a sigh, taking a seat in one of the nearby chairs. Lucas glared at him before settling into another chair.
"You hooked up with Katie?" Lucas asked a calm but slightly annoyed tone in his voice.
Nathan clenched his teeth in silent frustration. It had been merely a month since he had broken up with Katie, and he still hadn't completely moved on.
"Chill, man! We're not together anymore," Nathan replied, rolling his eyes dismissively. "That doesn't mean you can make out with her," Lucas retorted.
"She didn't have a problem with it."
"Why are you so worked up about it? Just breathe, dude!"
Lucas's fists curled with anger, and he took a deep breath to calm himself. Nathan's entitled attitude had always grated on his nerves. Nathan seemed to effortlessly get whatever he wanted, primarily due to his looks. With an athletic build, dark grey eyes, a Mohican cut, and well-defined features, he exuded an understated handsomeness and latent power.
Money was never an issue for him, as he was the CEO of Grey-Tech, the largest tech company in Texas, despite being in his late twenties. Nathan always sought opportunities to flaunt his wealth and bask in his success, but this time, his attempt had gone awry.
"Well, I just wanted to check if you're doing okay," Lucas remarked, arching an eyebrow suggestively.
Fury rose within Nathan, realizing the implication of Lucas's words. Lucas knew his weak spots and took pleasure in exploiting them.
"It wasn't a big deal," Nathan managed to say, though his stomach churned with rage. The humiliation he felt burned deep, and he couldn't let it go.
"It wasn't a big deal?" Lucas repeated, disbelief lacing his voice. "Dude, the entire club is talking about it. They're saying some random girl slapped you across the face, poured a drink on you, and put you in your place. Trust me, you don't want to hear what they're saying. It's like a biblical story..."
Nathan couldn't bear to hear anymore. If Lucas uttered another word, he feared he would lose control and break something. He was Nathan Grey, and no woman had ever rejected him—until now.
In a fit of frustration, Nathan rose from his seat, pacing back and forth in the room. He had never experienced such humiliation in his life. He refused to let it slide.
"Finally! A woman who can resist and say no to you," Lucas murmured, a small smile playing on his lips. Deep down, he felt a sense of satisfaction witnessing Nathan's struggle.
Nathan, however, dreaded this moment. He was still bewildered as to how she could resist his charm. The thought of someone denying him sent a surge of defiance through his veins.
"Dude, she was drunk. She probably couldn't see clearly. She would have fallen for me instantly," Nathan boasted, presenting the lamest excuse even to himself.
"Prove it," Lucas snapped. "What?"
"Make her want you and then break her heart. If she even wants you," Lucas mocked, a loud scoff punctuating his words.
Nathan initially thought the idea was absurd. He wasn't so wounded that he would go to such lengths or waste his time. "This isn't a romance novel, dude. Do you think I'm going to waste my time trying
to make a woman fall for me just so I can break her heart? No way! I'm the CEO of Grey-Tech—I don't have that much free time on my hands," Nathan replied, disagreeing with an eye roll.
Lucas shot him a piercing look, ready to push Nathan into a pit of despair. Only he knew Nathan's switch, and he intended to use it to his advantage.
"Is that a bet?" Nathan asked, his heart pounding with anticipation and his bruised ego demanding vindication.
"Yes, it is," Lucas affirmed.
Nathan's smile grew wider. His wounded ego had lingered for too long, and this time, he refused to lose to Lucas. He watched Lucas intently before standing up and leaving the room. Nathan retrieved his phone and dialed a number, his smirk growing as he pronounced, "Then, I need you to find someone."
A Bumpy Start
"The past is a place of reference, not residence."
Brixlee Cyrup had just finished her interview in less than ten minutes, and she wasn't feeling good about it. She knew she wasn't going to get the job. Figures, she wasn't qualified; she was just a high school graduate, after all.
At that moment, regret flooded over her for not going to college. She had faced an identity crisis in high school after a terrible breakup, and she had thought college would be a waste of time. Her grandpa, the only family she had, had tried to stop her, but she had told him there was no need for her to work because she was pretty and could easily find a rich guy to marry.
Well, she wasn't wrong. She was indeed pretty, a stunning young woman in her early 20s with a beautiful face and a graceful figure. She had sparkling eyes, full lips, and a warm smile. Her long silky hair complemented her brown skin.
But even with all this, she still h
