Episode Sixteen 💦
Can I hate him?
“It’s a playground.” I laughed looking at Alec.
Still holding onto my hand tight he nodded his head and took me inside. It was the same playground Xavier and I use to come as children to play. The same playground where I was bullied.
I had so many memories with it and coming here after so many years just freshened them up. I wish it was Xavier I came here with rather than Alec.
“What are we planning to do?” I asked him confused.
It was raining hard. And I don’t know who (in their right mind) would come to a playground at night.
Alec let go of my hand and ran towards a tree. I looked at him confused before I realized what he was doing. He unzipped his jacket and taking the book out he placed it securely under the tree. Then slowly he covered it with his jacket.
“I am sure it got wet already.” I yelled over the loud noise of the rain.
He rubbed his hands together to keep his hands warm before coming towards me, “Atleast it’s not soaking wet.” He laughed.
I was quiet for a while before I burst out laughing too. I don’t think there was anything to laugh about but I was enjoying this moment too much for my liking. I was happy and I was enjoying even the slightest bits of happiness right now.
“Come on.” He led me in between where there were all the seesaw, merry-go-round, swings, slide, jungle gym, chin up bars and many more.

The next hour was all filled with laughter as we both tried riding each and everyone of them.
When we were on the slide we got stuck in between. Probably because of the fact that it wasn’t built for our body shape. As we both sat there in the middle stuck I couldn’t help but raise my head high and look at Alec who was just behind me. His legs were laying there just beside me and his head was just above mine.
The rain seemed softer than before but still it was enough for me to make my eyes blink continually. Alec brought his hands up slowly and put them above my face like a shield. He was trying to protect me.
A soft smile came to my lips. Even though I appreciated his gesture I wanted this to be Xavier.
Alec’s blue eyes held so much adoration that it made me feel bad. Bad that I was still thinking about Xavier when Alec is the one who is doing everything for me. Why the heck am I still thinking about him? Even now. When he didn’t even care to take my call. He didn’t even care to call back.
Can I hate him?
No. I don’t think so I can do that ever.
Do I want to?
Alec suddenly started tickling me making me lose control over my laughter, “S-STOPPP!” I yelled in between laughters. I could feel the tears threatening to fall down from my eyes.
He continued tickling me, “You sure?”
“Y-YES!!” I tried to get him away from me as I continued laughing loud. But we were still stuck in between making it impossible for him to get away from me.
I tried to get up and ran down the remaining slide sticking my tongue out at him. He shook his head before getting up and joining me.
He pulled my cheek making me wince a little, “I enjoyed it.” He whispered.

It was awfully quiet.
But I didn’t mind it. I was mad at him. And by mad I mean wanting to bang his head against the window shield beside him. Yes, very mad.
Right now I was sitting in the car with Xavier. From the moment I sat into the car he has been doing anything to avoid looking at me, talk to me. It seemed as if he was mad.
It is me who is suppose to be mad!
He stopped the car making me sigh a wave of relief. Finally, I get to get away from this awkwardness.
I still don’t know what was making things this awkward between us, but I think it had to something with the amusement park.
Maybe he regrets taking me there at all. And this thought alone made me more mad at him. I didn’t ask him to take me there! It was his choice! He took me there by his own choice. If he feels awkward to the point where he can’t take my call when I needed him, he can take that awkwardness and shove it up his ass.
I reached out to the door handle to get out but a hand came on top of mine, making me stop.
My head snapped sideways to look at Xavier. It was the first time he looked at me in the eyes today.
I looked down again and noticed his knuckles all bruised up.
“What were you even doing? Practicing to be Bruce Lee?” I said sarcastically.
Even though I was being sarcastic I couldn’t help but be concerned. It was no joke, his knuckles were bruised up all very badly.

He reluctantly took his hands away from mine and hid them beside him so that they were no longer visible to me.
“It’s nothing.” He said coldly.
I stared at him for a minute. It was not nothing. For god’s sake I have eyes, not buttons.
But who am I to argue with him? Especially when I am mad at him.
I shrugged my shoulders at him letting him know that I didn’t care much. Even though I did. I did very much.
I opened the door but his voice made me stop again,
“Actually,” he started. His voice that of deep velvet, soothing, “I am feeling generous today. I will drop you in front of school.”
I choked on my own saliva–coughing. He suddenly started patting my back lightly asking if I was alright. I nodded my head at him making him take his hands away from me.
Did I hear him right? I am sure I didn’t. Shit this earwax is making me hear things.
“So?” He asked going to look in front again.
“I am sorry?” I asked a little hazed. Still not able to believe my ears.
He shook his head rolling his eyes, “Just keep on sitting, will you?”

What? Did Xavier just say he is feeling Generous?.

She is water💦 He is fire🔥
She is kind😊 He is Cold😟
( Pandas are my favorite)
“Let’s go to the next class together.” Brian wrapped his arms around my shoulders.
I closed my locker and turned around to face him. Evie was already with me. I was telling her of all the events that happened yesterday.
He was grinning at both Evie and I. His caramel eyes twinkling. He seemed somewhat ecstatic today.
“Brian will you shut up for a moment. I am officially under thinking crisis right now.” She turned towards me, her brows furrowed deeply, “What happened next?”
“Am I missing something?” Brian asked seriously.
Evie groaned before hitting him on the head, “I told you to shut up.”
“But we’ll be late if we don’t go to the class right now.” He complaint.
Evie groaned loudly before hitting her head lightly on the locker behind her. Brian’s eyes moved towards me, looking at me weirdly. He pointed towards her silently and gestured me asking if she had gone mad.
I shook my head laughing.
We were all moving towards our second class right now. And even though I wanted to tell Evie as much as she wanted to hear it, I could not deny the fact that Brian was right. Besides I think even Brian deserves to know.
“I’ll tell you both later, alright? Let’s keep moving right now.” I said pulling Evie away from the locker she was banging her head against. She pouted before she nodded her head at me.
“Let’s go.” She said.
Brian cleared his throat making us know he was still there with us. Evie rolled her eyes at him before going and ruffling his hair out of no where.
He seemed taken off guard looking at Evie in awe. While I looked at both of them in awe.
He cleared his throat, “You know pandas are the cutest animals.”
I couldn’t help but cough and stare at him. What was all this about panda suddenly?
Evie seemed as confused as me,
“You are weird you know.” She laughed.
Brian looked down flushed. It was rare of him to blush. He would occasionally act weirdly, awkwardly or even stupid. But blushing? No. That wasn’t actually him.
He came between me and Evie locking our arms with his, “Let’s go ladies.”
I giggled before we started walking down the corridor. All the students were going in different directions and it seemed weird walking along with them in this way.
Suddenly Brian stopped making me stop too. I turned towards him in a questioning way.
Why did he stop?
He shook his head at me mouthing it wasn’t him and motioned his head towards Evie. It was Evie who stopped.
I was about to open my mouth but I stopped when I saw her lean a little in the front so that we could see each other’s face. Her brown hair fell forward covering the sides of her face but she tugged them behind her ear,
“What about the book you took from the library?” She asked concerned.
She seriously stopped to ask me about the book? She stared at me for a while before she spoke,
“What? Don’t look at me like that. As much as I hate studying it doesn’t mean I hate books, so?”
Brian laughed beside me–shaking his head. Using her books Evie smacked his arm that was linked to hers making him yelp. Then she returned to look at me expectantly,
“I forgot it there!” I answered her–alarmed.
“What?” She asked unbelievably.
“Ha! Just kidding,” I laughed. She looked relieved for a moment, “I let Alec take it with him.”
The look on her face returned.
I dismissed my hand laughing, “Gotcha again,” I took a deep breath before saying in a serious tone, “I left it at home to dry. Luckily enough, it didn’t get that wet.”
She stuck her tongue at me. Before going back to walking with a smile on her face.
I stopped in between making my duo stop with me. I turned around to find Alec standing there– smiling.
The minute I heard Princess, I knew it was him. No one calls me that besides him.
“Alec.” I greeted him returning the warm smile.
He walked towards me with his books in one hand. He came and stood in front of me. He looked at Evie and Brian beside me and greeted them,
“I think….we both should keep going, right Brian?” She turned towards Brian expectantly.
Brian narrowed his eyes, “Why? We can’t leave Liya alone.”
She sighed before pulling him with her, “Yes we can. Why don’t you tell me about your favourite animal. Panda?”
I watched her as she took him away from us. I laughed as Brian suddenly got interested and went with her. She turned to me one last time before winking at me.
Why did she wink at me?
I looked back at Alec to find his brows raised, “So, I think I’ll walk you to class.” He laughed.
I couldn’t say no. How can I even? My friends left me, besides Alec is a great guy. He makes me feel comfortable.
“Sure.” I nodded my head letting him know I was ready.
He looked around before nodding his head at me. He moved towards me with a smile on his face.
“I had fun yesterday.” He said while we walked together with our books in our hands.
He laughed goofily while running his hands through his blonde hair, “Well then I guess I can expect us to hang out sometime again?”
I looked sideways and couldn’t help but notice that he was feeling nervous. I was making him feel nervous. And I don’t know whether or not I should feel good about it, but I was. It was the first time that I made a guy nervous. Xavier was never nervous around me. And to think I may have that effect on a guy makes me feel somewhat happy.
I was ready to hangout with Alec. He is a fun to hang around with. Unlike some dipshit I know he cares about my feelings.
“No, I don’t think so.”
It was a heavy deep voice that interrupted us. Both Alec and I seemed taken off guard.
We both looked in the front together to find Xavier standing there with his hands folded in front of him. His hair were disheveled as always.
His hazel eyes turned towards me and fixed me in my spot with their intesity.
What was wrong with him? He is the one who wanted me to stay away from him and yet he is the one who never leaves me alone.
If only he would have picked that call up. Checked up on me. It would have given me the satisfaction. It would have meant a lot to me.
And it is not about being mad. I was hurt. I am still hurt.
“Xavier?” Alec looked happy upon seeing him, “What are you doing here?”
Xavier’s eyes shifted towards Alecs’ and glared holes into him, “Telling you to keep your distance from her.”
My eyes widened at what came out of his mouth. Is he joking? What is he planning? What is in his mind? I don’t understand him.
He confuses me so much.
Alec thought he was joking so he laughed before realizing it was no joke,
“For real?” He asked seriously.
Xavier nodded his head subtly, “For real.”
By now a large group of students had gathered around us. Their eyes on us. I felt uncomfortable under their eyes so I held onto Alec’s arms lightly.
I looked back at Xavier and saw him staring at my hands that were wrapped around Alec’s arms now. He gritted his teeth and clenched his jaw tight.
“Well no. That is not happening. Who are you to decide anyways?” Alec replied to Xavier while putting his other hand on mine.
If I thought Xavier’s eyes couldn’t turn more darker than they were right now then I was wrong because they were the darkest they have ever been. His aura right now was screaming danger.
He clenched his hands into fist as if ready to throw a punch any moment now. I couldn’t help but notice his bruised knuckles.
“I am asking you something. Who are you?” Alec said loud enough for everyone to hear even three corridors away from us.
I looked around once again at all the people who seemed too interested in what was going on here than their classes.
I didn’t even noticed but I felt Xavier too close to us before I was pulled away from Alec by my arm and being smashed into a hard body. I could still feel his hands on my arm– holding on too tight.
“You keep your hands away from her.” Xavier growled in a threatening voice.
I felt Alec’s hands on my arm as he tried to pull me back but Xavier won’t let him, making me stay close to his chest ,
“I said you keep your hands away from my fiance.” He growled again in a voice so threatening that anyone would be running for their life right now.
“What?” I could hear the shock in Alec’s voice as his grip loosened on my arm.
There were whispering all around us as people started talking about it. About us. Their so famous golden boy’s one true love. Ha!
I thought he wanted to keep us a secret. I thought he didn’t want anyone to know. He asked me not to tell anyone and there he is telling…no announcing to the whole school that I was his fiance.
Xavier Reed really knows how to play with the feelings.
I tried to break away from his grip but he won’t let me. God damnit leave me!
Finally I pushed him away from me, breathing heavily.
“Is it true?” I heard Alec’s voice. I knew he was hurt.
I turned around and found Alec looking at me hurt– expecting an answer. I was about to open my mouth before I was cut short,
“It is. She is my Fiance.” Xacier came and stood behind me. He put his hands on my shoulder but I slapped it away from me.
The next thing I knew he wrapped his arms around my shoulder in a protective way,
“No one. And I mean no one dare lay so much as a hand on her.” Xavier threatened everyone around us.
In any other normal circumstance I would have been on cloud nine for knowing Xavier finally called me his fiance in front of everyone.
But this, right now, wasn’t so easy. I had a guy in front of my eyes who seemed hurt and I don’t even know why but betrayed too! And I cared for him.
And most of all I was hurt by Xavier. For the awkwardness he created. For acting weird. For playing with my feelings.
I don’t know what got into me but I chose the most sensible option I found at that time.
I stepped away from him. Looking at him with all the emotion I felt. Even he seemed confused and before he could even comprehend what was wrong and before the people around us could get enough of their gossip.
My hand was already against Xavier’s face. I slapped him. I slapped Xavier Reed hard across his face.
I don’t know if I did wrong or right but one thing was for sure…a pair of hazel eyes were trying to pierce my soul through their glaring.
And just like that there was a sharp intake of breath around us.
To which Xavier actually seemed upset. Because the next thing I knew I was being pulled away from the crowd by my elbow. His grip tight.
__To be continued…
Finally the whole school knows about their relationship. Let ship name for Alec and Liya.

( We’ll see)
Xavier yanked me outside the school and around the corner where no one could hear us. Stopping he let go off my elbow giving a little force.
I stop a few feet away from him, standing my ground facing him as the wind blew around us. It wasn’t sunny. It was the weather you get when you know it isn’t going to rain but still it is all breezy.
“What is wrong with you?” He asked finally after a minute of looking into each other’s eyes.
I crossed my arms over my chest and huffed out some air, “What is wrong with me? Why don’t you ask that question to yourself? What is wrong with you?”
“I am not the one behaving weird.” He answered just as loudly as my voice.
“I am, right? I am the one behaving weird and different.”
“W-well yes you are. I admitted in front of the whole school that you are my fiance what else do you want?”
I took a deep breath, is this all what this was about, “Do you really think this is what I wanted? I never wanted it! I could have told that to everyone if I wanted.”
“Then what is it?!” He asked frustrated running his hands through his hair.
“You really don’t know?” I stepped closer to him, “Why didn’t you pick my call up yesterday?”
“What call? I never got any call.” He looked around trying to avoid eye contact.
“Lie. You are lying. I called you. The bell rang but you never picked up.” I took more steps towards him before I was standing in front of him while the air still blew around us making our hair blow in another direction,
“Do you know how scared I was? It was late at night! I-I,” I felt my throat choke up at just imagining the night but I ignored it and took a deep breath, “I didn’t know who to call… they were following me. I called everyone I trusted! Thst included you Xavier. I was sure you would
definitely pick my call up. But just like all the times…you let me down! Why?! WHY XAVIER? WHY DO YOU PROVE ME WRONG ALL THE TIME? ALL THE TIME THAT I TRY TO CONVINCE MYSELF THAT YOU DON’T HATE ME. IT’S JUST THAT YOU NEED TIME. YOU DO SOMETHING THAT TELLS ME OTHERWISE. YOU MAKE ME WANNA HATE YOU IN THE END!” I ended up yelling at him still standing in front of him and punching his chest.
I could see his expressions change. His hair were all stuck out of all the times he passed his hands through them. His eyes, they were not their normal hazel. Infact they were dark. Before I could hit him again he took hold of my hands
His grip tight around my wrist. I tried to get my hands out but all he did was tightened them more,
“THEN DO IT. HATE ME. WHY ARE YOU STOPPING YOURSELF?!” He yelled back at me shaking me a little.
“CAUSE I CANNOT!” I yelled pushing his hands away from me, “NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY I CANNOT HATE YOU. RESIST YOU. I DON’T WANT TO LOVE YOU BUT I CANNOT HELP IT!” I stopped taking deep breaths from all the yelling.
I looked at Xavier who was looking back at me astounded.
“You confuse me.” I pulled my hair out looking at him, “I don’t understand you. One minute you make me feel special and the another you treat me like crap! I am no puppet of yours that you’ll treat me however you want. I have feeling too!…If you hate me let me know! Don’t care for me. Just don’t confuse me more. I cannot hate you. But I cannot also love you without hating you.
Fuck. It doesn’t even make sense. That’s how bad you have gotten into me. I talk shit. I do shit.”
“Do you really think so low of me?” He asked. Hurt a little evident in his voice.
“You make me feel so! Don’t you hate me?! If no, then why do you confuse me?”
“I don’t.” He said frustrated, “I am not confusing you. I don’t know how I feel!What do you expect me to do? Love you like we know each other best? What do you expect from a guy who is contracted to marry a girl without even knowing her personality.”
“You know me!”
“I knew you as a child! People change Liya! I have changed. You have changed. For all you know we might not be for each other. Have you ever experienced true love?”
I nod at him. He shook his head, “Not the one that the contract is making you feel. But the real love. Where there are no boundaries. It doesn’t bind you. It just happens. You cannot help falling for them. I want that! I want to fall in love not be contracted into one! I want to feel all that. And I want to be the one to choose who I want her to be!”
So this is all it was in Xavier’s heart. He indeed never loved me. He didn’t feel anything towards me. He…He never hated me. But never felt anything either. Maybe I was always just his friend. A childhood friend. I don’t know what hurts more the fact that Xavier doesn’t love me or the fact that he doesn’t hate me either. He just doesn’t care.
Xavier might feel that this was all an illusion. That I didn’t love him.
But my heart knows that I do.
“Have you never felt anything towards me? Ever?” I asked softly. Feeling myself breaking a little.
He kept quiet. The cold Xavier which I usually encountered was much better than a speechless Xavier right now.
He opened his mouth, “I don’t know, okay? I don’t know how I feel.”
Now it was my turn to look at him speechless. I didn’t know what to say. It was true that knowing the fact that Xavier didn’t love me was crushing me. And I also know that if I want I can still have him because of the contract. But I am not selfish. I love him. I am not possessive. I want him to love me. Not by force but by his own choice.
“What about this…I leave you?” I said out of no where staring into his hazel eyes.
He looked at me confused, “What do you mean?”
“You want to find a girl to fall in love with, right? I am leaving you. You are free. Date anyone you want. Try as many girls out as you want. If you do find a girl you fall in love with, I’ll be the one to break the contract.”
He still looked at me confused. As if not believing what I was saying, “There’s gotta be a catch.”
“You won’t stop me. While you date other girls I’ll still try my best to wrench your heart open for love. I’ll try to make you fall in love with me.”
I took a few steps away from him and extended my hand out for him, “Mr Reed, do you accept it?”
Xavier looked at my hand contemplating before nodding subtly and putting his large warm hands into mine. I couldn’t help but notice the way they fitted so perfectly. He clutched it tight giving a shake,
“Ofcourse. I’ll try my best to find the girl I want to fall in love with.” He said mischievously. A smirk on his face.
A gust of wind blew around us as I took my hand away from his warm ones, “And I’ll make sure it is me you fall in love with.”
___To be continued…
I really do love writing about them. Aaah they both are so cute together….always fighting. It was a steamy conversation tho, don’t you think?
Well who do you think will win the deal?
Liya is stubborn but we all know Xavier isn’t someone to crack easily.

You smell nice
“No you didn’t.”
“Yes I did.”
“No you didn’t.”
“Yes I did.”
“You are an idiot.”
“Guess I am.”
“And I am serious.”
“Ughhh…you did lose your mind while talking to him, didn’t you?”
“What kind of girl let’s their fiance fall in love with any other girl?!”
“My kind of girl does.”
“Are you regretting it?”
“Can you take back the deal?”
“Were you out of your mind when you said that?”
“Pretty much. My head was burning hot so it counts.”
“Do you know how many girls are going to jump on him like some hyenas now that he is not committed.”
“They didn’t until now.”
“That is because he made it clear that he was committed. Guess not anymore.”
“Did I make a mistake?”
“Pretty much…And what about Alec?”
I fell silent for while before I said, “I don’t know, haven’t really seen him since then.”
“Can I intervene girls?” Brian asked a little hesitant. He was sitting there with us on my bed. Though he was sitting with us I could see he felt a little out of conversation. You cannot blame him. From the moment I have told them about my ‘not so pleasant meeting’ with Xavier. Evie had been freaking out and questioning me like crazy. Though it is fun to have her around and no matter how much I love her. But damn, this girl can make you question your whole existence and this was nothing but a deal.
“No Brian! Don’t you see what our roasted fish as her brain friend did today!” Evie sounded frustrated. Brian looked at Evie, terrified from her. Without saying a word he nodded his head,
“Yeah I heard. Very terrible.” He ranted.
I looked at him shocked. Et tu Brian? I thought you were gonna pick sides with me.
He looked at me. As soon as his eyes locked with mine I gave him the hardest glare known in the entire history of human kind. He gulped laughing awkwardly,
“Roasted fish as a brain isn’t that bad, right Evie?” He looked at Evie expectantly.
“It is!” We both said in unison sitting next to each other as Brian sat pale in front of us.
“Why do you always have to say everything together?” He whined but Evie ignored him by turning towards me a little sideways so that she could face me,
“Just when we all came to know about the girl Xavier was so committed to, you go and burst our balloon of happiness by allowing him to date anyone?” She fell silent for a while before breaking out into a huge grin, “Wait does that mean even I can date him?” she asked with a mischievous smile on her face which spoke so much volume.
“No!” Brian and me yelled simultaneously. Though our reasons were completely different.
She laughed while elbowing both of us, “I am just kidding. Though not about those hyenas already waiting to claw out Xavier’s clothes.” She looked at me a little disappointed yet again.
What? Why was she giving me the same look from the very beginning! What was I suppose to do? The guy tells me he doesn’t love me. He wants to fall in love with a girl of his choice. What was I suppose to do? Cling onto him like a monkey? No, thank you.
“It’s like you jumped into the sea full of sharks on you own accord.”
I knew what she meant. I knew it wasn’t going to be easy. Getting Xavier to love me was rather difficult already and now it was almost an impossible task.
But somewhere along the line I listened to my heart while making the deal. There was no point in forcing love which wasn’t even there. But this way I actually feel Xavier will know me. Will love me. And accept me for who I am.
“Can I s-say something?” I heard Brian’s meek voice again.
Evie looked at him in a questioning way. Even though Brian was a number one prankster he couldn’t help but be afraid of two petite girls.
“Rather than dwelling on the past I think it is best that we think what is to be done to win the deal.” He continued regaining strength in his voice as Evie and me nodded at him in affirmative.
“So what do we do?” I laid back down on my bed tired from all the things that happened.
“Rather what do you do?”
I lifted my head up to look at Brian and Evie both standing up. Should I mention ready to leave? Great, they are ditching me.
“Get your asses back here.” I commanded them. They just stuck their tongue at me.
I don’t usually cuss. But being friends with these two assholes has really affected my vocabulary. In a bad way. I took hold of a pillow beside me and threw it at them. It went and smacked Brian right in the face just as his tongue was stuck out.
I couldn’t help but chuckle at his face as the pillow slid down and fell on the ground beside his feet while he still stood there paralyzed with his tongue still out and his eyes wide.
I continued laughing now laying back down and holding down my stomach. I recovered from my contagious laugh and sat up straight still giggling in between. I looked at Brian to find him smirking at me. Before I could even think what was happening he yelled,
“Take that!” My eyes went wide as I saw Brian bringing his hand back and throwing the pillow directly at me. I saw the pillow flying and Rolling towards me.
Before I could even do something as simple as move my hands. It was already too late. The pillow went and collided straight with the wall just behind my bed. It dropped down beside me as I looked at it before turning my gaze towards Brian.
“For a prankster you really do suck at aiming.” I commented on his throwing skills.
“Come on!” He threw a tantrum linking his arms around Evie’s shoulders and hiding his face behind her.
Evie giggled as she patted him awkwardly. ‘What am I suppose to do?’ She mouthed at me. I shrugged my shoulders leaving it upto her to do whatever she wanted to do with this guy right over here.
“I think that is enough.” Evie said as she tried to push Brian away gently.
But he didn’t let her go. If anything he clenched his arms tight around her, “No! You both are too mean to me. I don’t have any friends left with me. The only people I can be friends with are pandas!”
“Pandas are a great option. Now just let me go. You are suffocating me.” I could hear the difficulty in her voice. Brian could too because he loosened his clench yet still held onto her like a baby. Wasn’t he enjoying it too much? I sat there looking at them with a smile on my face. I adore them so much together! My ship is sailing….woohoo.
“Ummm. You smell great.” I heard Brian mutter.
My eyes snapped to Evie’s to find her making a face of disgust. No shocker here, I kind of expected that. Brian you idiot that is not how you make a move on a girl.
Not even seconds later I saw Brian jump up squealing in a high pitched voice. He ran away from Evie as far as possible. Coming and sitting next to me he hid behind me.
“Why do you always have to be so violent?!” He yelled still putting up the high pitched voice.
“What did I even I do?” She asked him innocently.
“No. No. No.” He sat straight beside me shaking his head disapprovingly, “You don’t get to act innocent after pinching me with those large claws of yours. Woman, you can commit a murder with them.”
“But you still love me.” She said innocently.
Brian went silent before I heard him whisper so that only I could hear it, “That I do.”
___To be continued…
Brian and Evie are cute together, don’t you think? I might just want to make a whole different book on them, not sure though.
What do you think?

I was nervous as I stood near my locker. Nervous that I would see Xavier with a girl any minute. And even though it was me who gave him the right, I still feel a pang of jealousy shoot through my chest everytime I think about him with any other girl.
Brian and Evie went on to their own lockers to get their books. It was Brian who picked me up today with Evie. Usually Evie would drive on her own but since she still had a little pain in her ankle(or that is what Brian insists us to believe) from the time she twisted it on the stairs at Nathaniel’s house she tags with Brian. Or should I say Brian forces her to tag along? No matter how much she yells at him that she is fine, that it doesn’t hurt anymore, he doesn’t take no for an answer. I think he just wants to spend time with Evie. And guess what am I doing? Yep, third wheeling them… Actually I hope they don’t feel like that because that would be too embarrassing.
Ahhh…and my another reason to be nervous?
I don’t know how Xavier will react when he reaches my home only to realize that I already left without him. Maybe he’ll be mad. And knowing Xavier he might even be in a spoilt mood for the rest of the day. If. Only if it really matters to him.
I felt a hand press down on my shoulders. I was so immersed in my thoughts that I jumped up in surprise. I look at my side to see Alec standing there with a red hoodie on.
All the events that happened yesterday came rushing back to me. I didn’t know how to react. It was kind of awkward.
Why? Even I don’t know myself. There were just these moments together which felt so special and something more.
“Alec.” I said.
“Princess.” He replied back.
I sighed lightly. Listening to him calling me Princess just made things a little less awkward. It just meant he wasn’t really mad at me. Or was he?
I looked at him and he looked the same. There was nothing whatsoever different about him.
Again, I don’t know what I was expecting. He had the same blue oceanic eyes. The same blonde hair which were longer than before. While his lips. My god, it was the first time that I was actually noticing them. I haven’t actually seen how kissable his lips were.
What is wrong with me?
“About yesterday,” I started taking a step forward.
I was very much expecting for him to take a step back, but I was surprised when he didn’t. He stood there in front of me just like that.
“You are still thinking about it?” He chuckled very lightly.
I looked up confused at him. Am I not supposed to? I could pretty much tell that he was hurt yesterday. And today he just seemed….fine.
He took a step towards me and there was very little space left between us. The night we spent in the rain flashed in front of my eyes for a moment, our near kiss before I shook it off.
“Yes, I mean you seemed so” I couldn’t get to the hurt part before Alec shook his head,
“Shocked?” He said still chuckling a little. No hurt, I wanted to yell but I didn’t.
“I was just shocked, that’s all. Look, Xavier is my best friend and knowing he had been engaged all this while and I didn’t even know was surprising.”
I felt a little hurt. I don’t know why but I did. He definitely didn’t seem shocked. Or was I delusional? Afterall, people do become delusional and think what they want to.
I wanted to ask about our “near” kiss.
“I can understand.” Was all I said.
“I am so glad that nothing happened between,” he leaned in a little towards me so that he was near my ear, “us.” He whispered and went back to standing in front of me.
I didn’t know what to say? I didn’t want anything more to happen between us, but I will be lying to myself if I don’t admit that I actually felt for him. Maybe I actually liked Alec.
“Yeah. Me too.” I tried to smile back.
“I made everything clear with Xavier. Told him that we are just friends. So you don’t have to worry about it anymore.” He said a little ecstatically.
He seemed more cheery than ever.
“Yeah. Just friends.” I replied back.
A mental note to myself, it was stupid of me to think that Alec liked me for even a second. He just thought of me as a friend. Just like Xavier. When will I ever become more to someone?
But seeing Alec as a friend was much easier. He doesn’t mind Xavier and me being engaged anymore. Then I don’t think it is my place to feel hurt at all.
Friends? Yes, I can be that. Better than anything else.
“What were you doing anyway?” I asked him walking towards Evie’s locker.
I wanted to get off topic as soon as possible.
He started walking beside me with his hands in his pocket, “Nothing. Just had some work of Xavier’s to be done.”
As soon as I heard his name I couldn’t help but get more interested. I was about to ask him more when a bunch of people greeted Alec.
He greeted them back by shaking hands and patting their backs. He really is popular. Is it because of his looks? Is it true that all you need is looks to be popular? Because no one. Literally no soul in this school won’t know about Alec. Not only Alec, but the whole XAN trio.
“Hey Liya.” The people who just greeted Alec acknowledged me.
I couldn’t help but freeze in my place. Did I just heard them right? Did they just greet me? I don’t even know them and yet they know about me.
I nodded slowly at them. I looked like a robot but they didn’t care. They just looked at me before moving on with their stuff.
“I don’t understand.” I muttered confused
Alec looked down at me laughing, “Don’t be so confused. Being linked to Xavier automatically makes you popular. And you are his fiancee. I can only hope for you to hope that there might still be people who don’t know you.”
I felt myself shudder. So all you need to be popular is Xavier in this school. Being recognized by the whole school isn’t that bad until your every move is watched like a hawk. You cannot have your food without a controversy going on why would she eat that.
I sighed in resignation.
“Cheer up. It’s not that bad. You’ll get used to it.” He winked at me cheerfully.
How much I wish I could have so much as a point of that cheerfulness in him. He thinks it won’t be bad because he is used to this from the beginning. I am not. I wasn’t that popular. Not a loner either. I was just….average. If that makes sense.
I felt an arm slung around me, “Yo Liya. Let’s search for Evie together. God knows Panda ate her.”
I removed his arms from around me and folded mine in front of me, “Pandas don’t eat humans Brian.”.
He went silent for a while but when he heard Alec chuckling softly it irritated the hell out of him.
“I know that!” He blew some air out, “pfft…I wasn’t serious when I said that. How can you even think that pandas can eat humans. They are so adorable.”
I shook my head at him. He whined but I just patted his back.
Ofcourse he didn’t know. He was just pretending to know that pandas didn’t eat humans. I feel so bad for Evie.
“I’ll get going Liya.” I turned away from Brian to find Alec already ahead of me, “I still have to do Xavier’s….shit…I almost forgot I need to inform everyone.” He looked around panicked.
He started walking in the opposite direction in a hurry. I stopped him,
“What is it?”
He puts one of his hands on his forehead and closed his eyes, “You won’t like the sound of it.”
I raised my eyebrows but he couldn’t see it. Brian called me out but I ignored him, “Tell me.”
He looked a little hesitant for a while before he sighed, “We have been told by Xavier to let every girl know that he will be conducting the auditions for his girlfriend today. I can’t believe he is doing that. And it wasn’t even the plan until today in the morning when he entered the school with a scowl on his face. I don’t know what got into him this morning but he seemed pissed off and decided to find his ‘girlfriend’…Are you alright?”
I tried to smile, “Ofcourse I am fine. What would be wrong with me?”
He heaved out some air, “I just thought…you know. Since you and Xavier.” He stopped mid sentence, “By the way you don’t have to worry princess. I know about the deal you made with Xavier. And I am rooting for you. If you need any help just let me know. I am getting late now, I’ll see you around.”
He left after waving at me. I waved back at him before putting my hands down and staring at the floor. Good thing it wasn’t crowded much right now or I would have been carried out into another dimension by them.
“He is really taking it seriously.” Brian came and stood beside me. I knew he heard what Alec said.
I took a deep breath putting on a smile, “I knew it wasn’t going to be easy the minute I made the deal.”
Though the auditions? Is he that keen to find a girl? Or was it because of me? Did I really hurt his feelings by coming with Brian to the point that he is taking his revenge by having these auditions?
“Come on. We’ll figure something out. Let’s go find Evie.” Brian said putting his arms around me once more. But this time in a reassuring way. Not removing his arms this time I let him take me with him.
We walked a few steps before Brian stopped. I could feel his body tense up. I looked up to find him looking in the front with hurt evidentom his face.
I looked in front to find Evie standing there with Nathaniel. They were laughing and talking to each other. I looked back at Brian to see him clenching his jaw.
I put my hands on his, “They are just talking. Let’s go.”
But he didn’t budge from his place. I sighed before removing his arms away from my shoulders. I walked a few steps and took a glance back to find him still glaring holes into Nathaniel.
This boy. He has so much guts as to enter someone’s house and mess with them but not enough to go upto the girl he likes while she is talking to some other guy.
“Hey.” I said as I approached both of them. They both stopped talking before Evie came and hugged me. As soon as she hugged me she whispered into my ear,
“Have you heard about the audition?” She took a step back looking at me. Waiting for me to reply. I nod at her softly. Her eyes soften a bit at the corner.
“I am so sorry Liya.” Nathaniel interrupted us. He was still standing there. He looked at me sheepishly with his hands behind his neck, “I didn’t want to be rude to you on your first day. It was just the rule that we follow. I hope you’ll forgive me taking into consideration that I almost payed for it when you made me smell like toothpaste, or wrote ‘Fuck you’ on my car for that matter.”
I laughed along with him, “It’s fine.”
He grinned at me before stepping away, “You should enter the auditions too. I am sure you’ll win.”
“Not when Xavier is holding them.” I said rolling my eyes.
“Even when Xavier is holding them.” He winked at me.
We talked for a few minutes laughing before he said his goodbyes to me and Evie.
“I’ll see you around.”
As soon as he left she turned towards me. Her eyes a little dreamy, “He isn’t that bad afterall.”
I looked at her. Her eyes telling me something. No way, don’t tell me she likes him. What will happen to my ship?
“He isn’t.” I agreed to her. It was true. When you talked to Nathaniel in person he wasn’t that bad of a person. He talked normal like a human being. Not going around making people eat food from the floor.
“He is even good looking. He has these green eyes.” Evie goes on sighing softly. Before she could complete her sentence I saw Brian stomp his way towards her and yank her away.
I could see Evie cursing and yelling at Brian to let her go but his hands were firmly tied around her wrist. I stood still for a moment contemplating if I should follow them.
In the end I ran after them to find Brian taking her outside the washroom and ordering her to wash her hands.
“Have you lost your mind?” She asked incredulously.
Brian ran his hands through his hair frustrated, “Maybe. Now go. I don’t like that guy anyways.”
Evie stomped her foot and turned away from him, “I am not washing my hands over your stupidity.”
“My stupidity? Fine. Do whatever you want to do.” He yelled and left her standing there with her mouth open.
He passed from my side. I tried to stop him but he didn’t even pay any heed to it. This was my first time seeing Brian so mad. He was always the cheery guy and the clown of the group.
He must really like Evie to make him this mad.
I looked at Evie who still stood there confused. I walked to her. I know what Brian did was wrong. No matter how much you like a person you can’t control them by making decisions for them.
I hugged Evie as she hugged me back still a little shocked, “What did just happen?” She asked unsure.
I wanted to tell her that it was nothing. That he was just a little jealous but I didn’t want it to be me to tell her. It was Brian’s place to tell and not mine. So in the end I just shrugged my shoulders,
“He just doesn’t like Nathaniel after what he did to me.”
She nodded her slowly at me. As I looked her I could see she was not convinced with the answer but she let’s it pass anyway. She clears her throat lightly to gain her strength back,
“What are we gonna do about the auditions? Kidnap the girls?” she asked now concerned about me.
I looked at her in awe. Even when she just had a fight with Brian she was worried about me. How was I so lucky to have her?
I put my hands on her shoulder and reassured her, “That won’t be necessary. You should go and talk to Brian. And as for me…I think it’s time that I give an audition of my own.”
