(When crazy meets arrogant)

•••Episode 01•••

Elsa’s Pov:
“Elsa! Elsa!! Where the hell is that stupid
girl?” my step mother yelled from downstairs
“Am in the bathroom Ma” I screamed
“Get your good for nothing self here this
minute” She said.
I rolled my eyes in annoyance.
That woman is my worst nightmare… Can’t I
get ready for work in peace?
Did I just say work?
Pardon me…its hell not work
I can’t believe it! I insulted the CEO of
Montes group of companies…
The biggest company in the whole of Manila.
I humiliated the CEO and he hired me…
Isn’t that weird?
So for me, it’s gonna be hell for me but I
have no choice.
I really need the damn job like fvck.
I rushed out of the bathroom, wore my
rumbled shirt and skirt as I combed my hair.
“Gosh! This shirt looks so old” I said but I
know I have no choice.
Minutes later
I was already set so I walked downstairs.
“Good morning Ma!” I greeted my step
mother who was already eating with her lazy
daughter Gina.
“What’s good about the morning Elsa? The
landlady just came here this early morning to
take her house rent” My step mother yelled
at me.
“But I gave you some money last week to
give the landlady” I said
“Whatever! Well Gina here needed a ball
gown for her beauty contest and my snuff
finished so I bought it with the money” She
said as I fumed in anger.
“What? That was my last savings at madam
sugar’s restaurant” I said angrily.
“And so what Elsa? Then make some more
money for the house upkeep” Gina said as
she picked up the fried chicken laps and ate
“Shut up Regina! Can’t you look for work to
do than leave every single debt for me to
pay” I said
“She’s too young to suffer silly girl… Let me
remind you I borrowed some money from Mrs
Carlos and you know I need some money to
pay her so just don’t mess with your new job
cos that’s our source of hope” my step
mother said as I eyed her.
“And where’s my breakfast?” I asked as I
found no plate for me.
“Sorry! You will have to go to work on an
empty stomach… There’s no food for you”
Gina said
Jeez! I hate that girl
I gulped angrily as I picked up my worn-out
handbag and rushed out of the house.
“Silly!” They mocked me as I left.
I burnt up with anger as I left the house….
That house is the worst place to be in
My life is hell and suffering has always been
my next name apart from Elsa.
I yawned hungrily.
Just then I tripped and that was when I
found out that my shoe’s heel was worn-out.
I quickly removed it and fixed it then wear it
I have no money to get a new pair of shoes…
Maybe when I receive my first salary I will.
I flagged down a cab and hopped in.
Gosh! Am sorry I haven’t properly introduced
Well my name as you all know is Elsa Cruz,
am 21 years old and am orphan living with
my greedy step mother and her lazy daughter
Regina..Gina for short!
My step mother has a degree in borrowing
and I’ve been the one paying for it.
My mother died while giving birth to me and
my father got married to Susan my step
After two years, my dad died and that was
when Susan brought in her daughter
Regina…. She’s a lovechild.
Regina and I are age mates but Gina does
nothing but laze around all day and goes to
beauty contests without success.
I just hope I don’t lose my job again…
I used to work at Mrs Sugar’s restaurant but I
lost my job all because of Susan…
I think that’s enough introduction for now…
You’ll find out more about me later.
The cab pulled over in front of the
I paid the cab driver and walked into the
I walked to the receptionist.
“Good morning! Am new here and am the
CEO’s new secretary… Where is his office?” I
asked politely but the receptionist burst into
I looked around in embarrassment.
“She looks like a chicken in her old worn-out
shirt” She said aloud to her colleague.
And they laughed at me.
“How dare you silly brats?” I screamed at
them as I pushed down the files on her table
landing a thunderous slap on her cheek.
Before she could say anything I stormed out
of her office.
“So annoying! I just hate being in the midst
of these spoilt brat…” I said angrily to
“How do I get to the CEO’s office now?” I
Maybe I should wait at the lobby…
“Hello!” a young girl waved at me.
She looks quite classy and kind.
I returned the wave with a smile.
“Don’t mind those girls.. You look beautiful”
She said as I chucked
“Am Jocelyn….whats your name?” She asked
“Elsa! ” I said as we shook hands.
“Follow me! I’ll take you to the CEO’s office”
She said as I nodded and followed her.
I stood in front of the damn cute young CEO
in anxiety
“Good morning sir!” I greeted him but he
ignored me.
“Why are you late?” He asked brutally
I gulped nervously.
“Am sorry sir!” I said
“I don’t take sorry for an answer Miss Cruz…
Did you get me?” He yelled
“Gosh! Am being polite Mr CEO!” I said
rolling my eyes
“I am your boss and you will do as I say” he
said angrily
“I guess so….” I replied
“That’s your office in front of mine and take
note I don’t want you coming into my office
uninvited” He said
“Of course I don’t even wanna see you” I
muttered almost audibly
Say what?” He asked as I flinched
“Nothing!” I said
“Can I go now?” I asked
“And pack that messy hair of yours… You
look more like a frog in that stupid worn-out
shirt of yours” He said with his eyes focused
on the files.
I felt humiliated… I just remembered what I
told him the other day.
“Get me a cup of coffee” He said
“Jeez! Mr CEO am just arriving can’t I even
take off my bag?” I asked rudely
“Get outta my office and do as I say” He
yelled as I quickly rushed out in fear.
“Is this what am gonna be going through?
the house is hell and the office is fire” I
I stirred the cup of coffee as I placed the
mug on a saucer and headed straight to the
CEO’s office.
“Your coffee!” I said as I placed it on his
table and turned to leave.
He sipped it slowly.
“Wait! ” He ordered as I quickly turned
Holy shit!
Mr CEO threw the cup of hot coffee all over
my face….

•••Episode 02•••

Jeremy’s Pov:
I poured the hot coffee all over her face as
she screamed aloud covering her face with
her palms.
“You can’t make a simple cup of coffee you
b*tch! Get out of my office now” I yelled at
her as she rushed out.
I bet her face is almost peeling off due to
the hotness of the coffee.
I smiled excitedly and shook my head.
“This is just a tip of ice berg” I said as my
door throw open and my friend Clark walked
“Hey bro! What’s up?” He smiled as we
shook hands.
“Am good man!” I replied with a smile
“What’s going on I saw the girl… Don’t tell
me you hired her?” He asked with a
questioning look.
“Am gonna make her learn her lesson” I
“Man… Just let the poor girl be! I mean you
shouldn’t have hired her all because you
wanna punish her” Clark said as I scoffed.
“Just let me do what I think is best for that
crazy girl… She humiliated in public” I said as
I picked up some files.
“I know Jeremy but that doesn’t mean you
will have to pay her back” Clark said
“Would you mind leaving my office? It’s work
hours and am very busy” I said backing him.
“Fine! Have it your way then” He said and
walked out of my office.
I sighed aloud and continue what I was
You might be wondering the kind of
person I am
Well let me do a little intro of myself..
Am Jeremy Montes! 26 years old and believe
me when I say am a billionaire…
The Montes family happened to be the
second richest in the whole of Philippines.
Actually am not a social person so I prefer
being alone with my only friend Clark.
I just got into the family company recently
though my dad and I don’t really get along
since my mom died.
Let’s just say I really despise my dad cos it
was not up to two years my mom died, he
got married to his good for nothing mistress
Miranda. The only family I know I have is my
sister Natasha.
And one more thing, women are not my kind
of thing… I think love sucks!
Infact I know love is just an illusion and
nothing more… It doesn’t exist.
Though I have a fiancee or maybe let’s call it
a betrothed. Joanna Argus… It happened
that her family and ours are friends so dad
thinks it’s a good idea to marry the proud,
spoilt brat.
I think that’s enough introduction for now
but as for my new secretary… Am gonna
teach her how to behave properly.
Elsa’s Pov:
I rushed into my office and banged the door.
Oh my gosh! My face was already burning up
and has reddened.
I burst into tears as I sat heavily on my chair.
“He’s so cruel” I cried as I brought out a
mirror from my bag and looked at my
reddened face.
This is more than unbearable… He’s an
arrogant jerk.
I just have to bear this because I really need
the money if not the landlady will throw us
out of the house.
I was still in tears when I heard a knock on
my door.
I quickly wiped my tears.
“Please come in” I said as Jocelyn came in.
“Oh Jocey! ” I called forcing a smile.
“What happened to your face? It looks sore!”
She asked
“Nothing.. Uhmm something bit me and…” I
stammered as she exhaled deeply.
“That’s OK! It’s almost lunch time.. Come on
let’s go and eat” Jocelyn said
That was when I remembered that I have not
eaten since morning.
“Alright!” I said as I stood up to leave with
her when the land telephone rang aloud.
“Excuse me! I’ll take this call” I said as I
picked up the phone.
“Hello” I said
“Miss Cruz! I want to see you in my office
right now” Mr CEO said
Before I could utter a word, he already hung
up… Tears welled down my cheeks.
I quickly wiped it off…
“Am really sorry Elsa! Mr Jeremy have always
been like that” Jocelyn said as I nodded my
I gently threw the CEO’s office door opened
and walked in.
“I don’t want him to see me crying” I
“Don’t you know how to knock?” He asked
“Am sorry!” I said
“Every statement must end with a “SIR” at
the back of it” He said as I furrowed my
I wanted to talk back at him but I held
myself and nodded.
“Did you get me?” He asked again with a
brutal face.
“Yes… S… sir!” I replied
“Good!” He snorted as I kept folding my
palms trying so hard to hold myself from
flaring up.
“Here… Arrange those files! I will be needing
them this evening” He said as he threw the
files at me making it scatter on the ground.
But he doesn’t even care… his eyes were
focused on the computer set.
I felt like punching him. I gathered the files
on the ground.
“But it’s lunch time sir!” I said
“And so what? You should be grateful I
didn’t throw you out of the premises for
lateness… I need the files in just 30 minutes”
He said as I gasped.
“What? Sir I really…” I tried talking
“Get out of my office now” He ordered as I
I quickly rushed out of the office.. am still
suffering from a burnt face.
I started working on the files…
I kept yawning hungrily and my stomach
grumbled noisily.
“Elsa is this how your death sentence will
be” I asked myself.
it was already getting late…
Jocelyn came in with a nylon of sandwich
that she handed to me.
“Eat that Elsa! I bet you are hungry… I might
leave anytime soon” She said as she headed
towards the door.
“Thank you Jocey!” I smiled as she nodded
and left the office.
I opened the nylon and took out one of the
sandwich to eat.
Just then, my eye caught with the wall clock
and I screamed.
“Am 5 minutes late!” I shouted as I quickly
kept the sandwich and rushed to the CEO’s
office with the files.
“You are late!” He said angrily
“Am so sorry sir! I was….” I said fidgeting
“For being late…. Pick the other files and
arrange them as well” Mr Jeremy said
“What?” I asked as tears circulated in my
“You heard me” He said
“You’re such a beast” I thought
I sluggishly kept the arranged files and
picked up the other one.
I was about to leave when I suddenly became
And I collapsed……

•••Episode 03•••

Jeremy’s Pov:
She was about to leave my office when
suddenly she became dizzy and collapsed…
I caught her in my arms as she blacked out…
She looks really pale and weak!
“Was I being too mean?” I asked myself as I
sank my hands into my hair.
I laid her on a couch.
I kept staring at her very pretty face.
“She’s really very beautiful but she’s crazy
though” I smirked
Is she ever gonna wake up?
Should I call the doctor?
Should I take her to the hospital?
I glanced at the wall clock……
Jeez! It’s getting really very late…
I was still engrossed in my thoughts when
she gently opened her eyes.
Elsa’s Pov:
I slowly opened my weak eyes and looked
“Get up Miss Cruz! It’s almost 10:00pm” I
heard a voice from behind.
I quickly turned around and saw Mr arrogant
“Am I still at the office?” I shouted as I
quickly jumped up.
I yawned hungrily.
“Excuse me Sir! I have to go” I screamed as I
rushed out of the office not minding the fact
that I was dizzy.
“Wait Miss Cruz you are still…” Mr CEO said
“I’ll be fine sir!” I yelled as I stormed out of
the building.
It was already very dark.
I sneaked into the house and tiptoed
“Where do you think you are going to Elsa?”
my step mother’s voice echoed and I frozed
as she quickly put on the light.
“And where do you think you are going to?”
Gina said as she furrowed my eyebrows.
“From the office!” I managed to say
Regina rolled her eyes at me.
“Office indeed! Who knows you might be a
club stripper” Regina scoffed
“The dishes are outside…. And the dirty
clothes are outside as well waiting for you”
My step mother said.
“Get to work and wash those” Regina said as
they pushed me aside and walked upstairs.
I exhaled deeply as I walked into the kitchen.
I opened the pots and they were empty!
“Elsa you will definitely die of hunger” I said
Luckily for me, I saw some of the leftovers.
“Thank goodness!” I said eating hungrily.
“Grrrrrrrrrrrrrnnnnn!” my alarm rang aloud as
I sluggishly yanked the duvet off my body.
I was so weak!
“Why should it be morning already” I
mumbled as I walked into the bathroom.
I took a quick shower and brushed my teeth.
I opened my old wooden wardrobe and took
out a dress.
In less than twenty minutes I was already
prepared for work.
I picked up my worn-out handbag and rushed
down stairs.
Fortunately, my step mother and her lazy
daughter were not at home.
“I wonder where they went to?” I thought
That’s least of my problems right now and
there is no need checking if I will see food.
I looked at the dinning and saw the dirty
plates with which they ate as flies sang their
songs on them.
I sighed loudly as I walked out of the house
banging the door.
I flagged down a cab and hopped in.
“Oh merciful God! Please don’t let Mr
arrogant CEO kill me with work today” I
I walked into my office and luckily for me Mr
CEO was not yet at work.
“At least am not late” I smiled
“Hey babe!” Jocelyn said as I hugged her.
“Jocey! Good morning” I smiled
“So how was yesterday? I mean by what time
did you leave?’ she asked
“It’s nothing to write home about… I don’t
wanna talk about it” I said as she chuckled
“Uhmm… There’s this birthday party next
weekend! I just wanted to invite you” Jocelyn
I shook my head.
“Who’s birthday party is it?” I asked curiously
“Sir Clark’s” Jocelyn said
“who is sir Clark?” I asked
“Mr CEO’s friend” she said as I snorted
“I’ll see if I can make it” I said not knowing
exactly what to say
“Alright… See you later” She said and walked
Not long enough, the CEO came but he
looked so gloomy.
“I wonder why” I thought
I was still sending some emails on the
computer when someone barged into my
It was a very beautiful and rich looking lady
in her twenties.
She was chewing and blowing gums.
Her dress looks quite expensive.
“Hey! Is Jeremy in?” She asked
“Good day! Do you have an appointment with
him?” I asked
“Shut the hell up you slut! Don’t you dare
answer my question with a question” She
said as she kept making noisy sounds with
her gum.
“The nerve of this lady” I thought
“Am sorry you can’t see him without an
appointment” I said
“Bastard” she yelled as she stormed out of
my office and I followed her.
I tried stopping her from entering Mr CEO’s
office but she pushed me aside and barged
“Hello sweetheart” She said blowing the gum
right in Mr CEO’s face.
“What are you doing here Joanna?” He asked
“Hey you! Get the hell out of here!” the
arrogant lady yelled at me and I turned to
“Elsa wait!” Mr CEO said as I got surprised.
“Did he just adressed me informally? He
doesn’t call me Elsa… It’s Miss Cruz” I
thought as I sluggishly turned around.
Before I knew what was happening, Mr CEO
walked closer to me.
Goosebumps ran down my spine…
He glued his lips to mine ..

•••Episode 04•••

Jeremy’s Pov:
Our lips were still glued to each others as
Joanna angrily picked up her handbag and
stormed out of my office.
I smiled and disengage the kiss….
Elsa looked at me very stunned.
“Fvck off!” I said arrogantly as she looked at
me with so much hatred.
“You animal” She yelled and landed a
thunderous slap on my cheek.
She quickly ran out of my office in tears
“WTF…. She slapped me? Does she know
who am I?” I half yelled at no-one in
Just then, one of the workers came into my
“Excuse me sir! There’s a document you need
to sign” She said as she kept it on my table.
“You b*tch! Did I invite you to my office?
You’re fired!” I screamed at her.
“Sir please…” She pleaded
“I said get the hell outta here” I shouted as I
throw a mug at her but she dodged it and
rushed out.
“I hate you all b*tches” I said fuming with
My cheeks are so reddened….
That crazy secretary of mine is surely gonna
Elsa’s Pov:
I rushed into my office with tears streaming
down my face.
“He’s such a jerk!” I yelled angrily
“He kissed me only because he wants to get
his b*ch jealous…. Gosh! I don’t think
there’s anyone as arrogant as this CEO of
mine” I said
I was still sulking when my phone beeped….
It was a message.
“From who?” I asked myself
It was from the jerk… Mr CEO.
“Miss Cruz! Get your fvcking self to the
garage I have a meeting with one of the
clients and you are coming with me” I read
“Miserable clown!” I rolled my eyes as I
picked up my handbag.
I quickly headed straight to the garage.
He was already inside his flashy expensive
I was about to hop in when he halted me.
“What are you trying to do Miss Cruz?” He
asked as I furrowed my eyebrows in
I don’t even want to see his good for
nothing face so I didn’t look at him and he
also did not look at me.
“Am getting into the car…isn’t it obvious?” I
“In your entire life have you ever entered
such an expensive car… I can’t ride in my car
with a clown”He scoffed.
“And your sight irritates me… I don’t even
want to ride with you” I said
He quickly rolled down the car louvers and
threw some money on me.
“Use that for transportation… City hotels and
sixth floor… Don’t you dare be late” He said
as I rolled my eyes.
He quickly speeded off as I picked up the
“I so much hate this arrogant guy” I said in
Some minutes later….
We were already discussing with the clients.
“You know what Mr Montes…i don’t think
that with what you just said, there’s any
benefits for us if we partner with your
company” the clients said.
“Uhmm… Mr George what I was saying is
that you will buy the shares before partnering
with….” CEO said with a shaky voice.
“Am sorry Mr Montes but I wouldn’t want to
lose or get into something that’s not
beneficiary to my company so am really sorry
but…” The client said as I cut him off.
“Excuse me sir! You see buying shares from
our company will give you a lot of profit and
most of all partnering with the Montes group
of companies is gonna be a great help to
your company… Think about the gain and
profits you will make Mr George, it’s quite
perfect for you” I said convincingly as Mr
CEO stared at me stunned.
“Wow! You are super good… I love that and
you know what? I just realized that buying
the shares and partnering with the Montes
group of companies is not a bad idea” He
said as I smiled broadly.
“Of course sir!” I said
“Alright.. It’s a deal and I will sign the
documents next week and buy the shares” He
said as Mr CEO smiled happily.
“I never knew he could smile” I thought
We shook hands with each other and Mr
George left.
“You must be feeling like a hero already…”
Mr CEO said as we headed out of the hotel.
“He’s such an ingrate!” I snorted
“Don’t feel too happy silly! It’s just luck…” He
“At least I have a good luck unlike some
people” I laughed
He quickly frowned his face.
Jeremy’s Pov :
I felt so insulted.
Am gonna humiliate this silly girl in the
I caught a glimpse of her shoe… It was such
a dog bite.
“She’s gonna go home on barefoot” I
laughed within myself.
And the place was crowded so it’s gonna be
a great humiliation and embarrassment for
I quickly stepped on her shoe roughly.
“Ouchh” She screamed as she fell on her face
heavily into the muddy water.
And jeez! Her face and hair became very
dirty and ugly… Muddy.
That drew everyone’s attention as they
roared in laughter.
“Oh my gosh! You are so clumsy… And jeez!
Try to change your dog bite shoe” I said
Oh look at that shoe
It looks so old
She looks like a clown
And her face is so dirty
People kept saying and mocking her as I
smiled happily.
She so dirty
Just like a pig
Her shoes are terrible
They kept clapping and making fun of her.
Tears rolled down her cheeks in humiliation
as I smirked at her.
People kept taking pictures of her and
jeering her.
“I QUIT! I QUIT…..” She screamed angrily as
she ran along the street….
