Through The Shadow 2 -Episode6
Theme: The Fiery Boss Lady
Written by Angel Louis


Ten minutes, 
Twenty minutes.....
Thirty minutes.....
An hour, two, three, four, five and still, seon was yet to come. 

'what's wrong?' Louisa asked. Why wasn't he at work today? Is something wrong with him? Or Maybe he just can't face her after the incident of yesterday.

Many thoughts clashed her head. He's the main reason she came to work today. And he isn't around. Work now is really boring. Too bored she thought as she unconsciously worried more about seon.
Really? She's worried about seon? Since when? She asked.
Seon is  definitely gonna tell her what he has done to her.
What's all these mixed feelings about?

Getting worried about seon is supposed to be the last thing on her mind. But it seems to be the sub-thought of the day.

Since he's not present, tomorrow she'll be back for him. Tomorrow they will talk and she'll finally penalize him for taking a day off for himself.   She concluded angrily arranging her desk. For now, she's done. She's done for today and she's heading home.  She picked up her bag and made out of her office.

               TWO DAYS LATER

"Absent Again?" Louisa snapped.
"I'm afraid so ma'am" Mrs Dawkins replied Loftily.

"Three days Absent? What's going on with him?" 

"I can't tell ma'am"

"Did you contact him to know the reason for his absence?" Louisa asked with a furrowed brow.

"Yes I tried contacting but his line never went through.  I tried it's two contacts but none went through" Mrs Dawkins retorted.

Louisa's face fell, what's wrong with him? Is he okay? Or has he resigned from his job because of the hostile treatment he received from her days back? She worriedly asked within herself. 

Many worried thoughts flipped through her mind. Oh God hope he hasn't quit his job. He better not! 
Why does she even care? She asked within herself. She isn't supposed to care. But awfully. She does.

Mrs Dawkins screened Louisa's face. She saw her worried expression 
"Is there a problem?" She asked

"Uhn. Nope no..."" She stuttered.
"Okay. Can I go now? I still have some...

"Give me the address. Seon's address" Louisa cut in.

"Wait. What?" Mrs Dawkins arched in a meaningful way.

I want his address Mrs Dawkins. Is there a problem with that?" She cocked her head at her with a slight frown.

"Of course not. I'll go get it right away" she replied and left.

Mrs Dawkins almost chuckled out. An d
Address? Seon's address? Is this a dream or what? Louisa is asking for a guy's address. This is history. Louisa isn't thinking of paying him a visit right?  She asked no one in particular as she went through the address book of each employees.

It didn't take a minute before she found seon's address. She copied it out and left back to Louisa's office.

"Here you go Ma'am" she handed it over to her.

"Thank you. I'll be back sooner or later. Just take care of my office. And if there is any visitor, you know what to do." She ordered picking up her back.

" No problem" Mrs Dawkins replied as she watched Louisa leave her office.

"Number eight Marine slate House" she read out from the paper.
She scrutinized the big building before walking over to the door post. 
She pressed a little button on the door which gave out a ding-dong sound.

The door soon opened revealing a smartly dressed lady.

"Come in please" she gestured as they both stepped in.

"How can I help you?" She asked.
"I'm here to see someone in Block two" she replied.
"Block two room what?"

"Block two room Five " Louisa retorted as the receptionist nodded.

She brought out a big book and began flipping through the channels pages. 

"Seon.... Nichols?"she said placing her eyes on the name that appeared on block Two Room five.

"Yeah. It's seon Nichols" Louisa nodded abruptly.

"Okay. Just walk straight over to the elevator. Input B2 and R5 on it and it'll take you straight to Block two. Then the third room to your left written '005' is his Apartment." She gave out directions to Louisa who nodded in return.

"Thanks" she muttered and left for the elevator.

She applied the method the lady had given her and in no time she was in Block two. She took the left route and stopped at the first third room. Which boldly had number '005' on it.

She took a long deep breath to calm her nerves before knocking. She tapped gently on the door again and again. But there was no response.

Isn't he around? 
If he wasn't, the lady would have told her earlier. 

She shoved aside her thought and gently slide the door knob. Luckily it wasn't locked. 'maybe he's sleeping' she thought as she gained full entry.

She hadn't fully taken the room in place when her eyes suddenly fell to someone on the bed.

"Seon..." It escaped her mouth.
She quickly walked over to his bedside.

"You are at home. You're here. You're....

She paused abruptly when she saw he was asleep. She frowned hard. Sleeping? Sleeping soundly when he's supposed to be at work? Arrgh. She grunted.

He's got some nerves. She huffed "seon... " She tapped him on his bare back.

*Fuck!* She cursed under her breath as she felt his body. He is burning up. His temperature is high.
"Seon..." She fearfully called.

Sein opened his eyes slowly to see Louisa standing in front of him. Is he dreaming or what? Or was he seeing double ? 

"Seon....you are burning up. You are sick!" Louisa fearfully stated the obvious. 

And that was when seon knew he wasn't dreaming. Neither was he seeing double. His Boss, Louisa Sullivan is the lady standing before his bed.

But what's she doing here?
