She tightened her grip on him, digging her nails deep into the back of his hands.
Fabian frowned slightly in response, but he didn’t let that stop him from reaching out to unbutton her blouse.
Hannah instinctively tried to fight him off in response, but pulled her hand back after a brief moment of hesitation.
Fabian let out a wry chuckle in annoyance. “Do you dislike me that much, Hannah?”
Hannah arched an eyebrow at him and said calmly, “I don’t think this has anything to do with our interview, Mr. Norton.”
Fabian pursed his lips and stared at her for quite a while before breaking into a slight grin. “Then, let’s do something that does!”
He then grabbed her by the chin and forced his tongue into her mouth, intertwining it with hers.
Hannah subconsciously placed her hands on his shoulders for a few seconds before pulling them back again.
Fabian’s eyes lit up as he increased the intensity of his kiss and interlocked fingers with her.
After what seemed like an eternity, Fabian let go of her and gently caressed her forehead with an affectionate look in his eyes. “There’s a good girl.”
Hannah shoved him off angrily and tidied herself up as she asked coldly, “Can we have that interview now, Mr. Norton?”
Fabian flashed her a mischievous grin and leaned closer towards her while pointing at his cheek.
Fabian sure is an annoying one! She pouted at him in response.
“What’s the matter? You don’t want your job anymore?” he taunted her when he saw no response from her.
“You…” Hannah took a deep breath to quickly calm herself down before giving him a quick peck on the cheek.
Fabian leaned back lazily against the sofa with a satisfied grin and motioned at her to carry on as he said, “You may begin the interview.”
Hannah rolled her eyes before sitting down in front of him, only to become completely dumbfounded when she took a look at the file she had.
These questions… Why are they so different from the ones I had before?
“What’s wrong?” Fabian asked impatiently while checking the time.
Hannah shook her head and said with a smile, “It’s nothing. May I know if you have any plans on marrying Ms. Tanner?”
Fabian smiled slyly when he noticed the grim look on her face. “That depends on her decision, really.”
Hannah bit down on her lip and anxiously shifted her gaze back towards her file, but the next question was worse than the previous one. “Is there more to your sudden announcement of your relationship with Ms. Tanner?” She shuddered a little as she asked that, but forced herself to maintain eye contact anyway.
“Of course not,” he replied with a shrug.
“When did you two start seeing each other?” Hannah found herself asking that question before she could stop herself and let out a wry smile. Given everything that has happened… Does knowing that even matter anymore?
“That question wasn’t from your senior editor, was it?” Fabian asked while pointing at the file that was sliding off her lap.
She quickly caught it with an awkward smile on her face. “Sorry…”
“That’s all right. Carry on,” he replied coldly while adjusting his posture.
Hannah recollected her thoughts and successfully completed the interview according to the questions on the file.
