Chapter 6 Behave Yourself Ms. King

The next day, Caroline got ready and went to the hotel Roxy told her to meet her in. As Caroline walked to the suite, she encountered the person she wanted to meet. “Maximo, what a pleasant surprise.”

“Caroline, right?” Caroline nodded. “What is it? I don’t have much time.” Caroline chuckled. “I won’t take much of your time. Could you come with me to the café in the lobby? There is something we must discuss.” Maximo agreed and they got on the elevator. They went to the café in the hotel and sat opposite each other. “Maximo, why are you marrying Roxy?”

“Oh, I see what this is about. You are that type of woman that gets jealous because her cousin is in a relationship. Well, I don’t mind.”

“This is not about that, you imbecile. I just want to know why you are with her. It shouldn’t be about money, after all, you come from a wealthy family.”

“How do you know about that?” Caroline responded, “a simple background check. Now tell me, why are you marrying her if you are cheating on her?”

“You don’t know what you are talking about.” Caroline fetched her cell phone from her designer handbag. She played the video of him with Leah and showed him the video. Looking at his shocked expression, Caroline smirked. She locked her phone and placed it back in her handbag. “Don’t worry I won’t show this to Roxy. I want you to leave. Don’t say anything to Roxy. Don’t contact her again.”

“Why would I do that?”

“I will give you two options: you leave now, and we pretend this never happened or you marry her today and I kill you later. After all, I don’t mind making my cousin a widow.”

“Are you threatening me?”

“You are slower than I thought. I honestly expected Roxy to have better taste,” Caroline spoke, “what do you think would happen if Vincent or Charles find out about this? They will kill you without thinking twice about it. If you value your miserable life, I suggest you leave and forget about her.” Maximo angrily stood up from the chair and walked away.

An hour later, Caroline was getting ready for Roxy’s wedding. All the bridesmaids and the bride were in one hotel suite, getting ready, each with a stylist. Caroline was getting her hair done by Ricardo when Roxy walked closer to her. She sat next to Caroline and nervously smiled. Caroline looked at her and said, “are you nervous?”

“I am freaking out.” Caroline chuckled, “don’t worry, everything will be okay.” Caroline showed a tender smile as Ricardo called Roxy’s stylist to continue styling her.

When they were all ready, Roxy took a deep breath and said, “alright girls, it’s time for pictures.” As Roxy was getting ready, the photographer was already taking pictures. Roxy planned to take more pictures with her bridesmaids before the ceremony. All the bridesmaids were going out of the suite to take pictures in the lobby of the luxurious building. “You guys go ahead. I need to use the bathroom,” Caroline said.

Caroline went inside the bathroom and locked the door. She opened her designer handbag and took out a garter and a pistol. She put on the garter on her leg then the pistol on the garter. She fixed her dress, to hide the pistol. She fetched her designer clutch purse from her handbag and opened the bathroom door. She left her empty handbag on the bed and walked out of the suite with the clutch purse in her hand.

When Caroline arrived at the lobby, she found the other bridesmaids taking pictures with Roxy. She walked closer to them and said, “sorry for taking so long.”

“It’s alright,” Roxy spoke, “now take some pictures with me.”

After taking some pictures with Caroline, Roxy began to wonder where Maximo was. Just then, Maximo arrived at the lobby with his best man. In the group of men, Caroline spotted Liam. She grabbed his wrist and guided him away from the group. “What are you doing here? Why are you following me around?”

“I don’t know what you are talking about, princess.” Caroline raised her hand, she was about to slap him, but at the last minute, she curled her fingers into a fist and lowered her hand when she remembered they were in a public space, surrounded by people. He leaned in and whispered in her ear, “behave yourself, Ms. King.” Liam casually walked away, making her blood boil from the rage she felt.

After that, they continued taking photos until the guests were gathered in the venue. They all stood out of the venue in the same hotel, waiting for the time to go inside. “Caroline, since we don’t have a best man for you to walk with, I want you to walk right before me.” Liam overheard Roxy’s directions and offered, “I can walk with her.”

“No, then Michaela will be alone. Let’s just do it like this,” Roxy countered. Then, Vincent and Alexandra approached Roxy. She opened her mouth in astonishment when she saw her mother. “I thought you couldn’t make it.”

“Did you really think I would miss my little girl’s wedding?” Roxy chuckled. She tightly hugged her mother. Then, she hugged her father. Now they were ready for the ceremony to start.

Maximo stood in front of the crowd and the priest. After the four couples of bridesmaids and best man walked down the aisle and stood next to the altar. Caroline walked down the aisle and stood next to the other bridesmaids.

When the music changed for the bride, the guest stood up from their chairs and looked towards the door. Roxy, with her beautiful mermaid style white dress and long veil, started walking down the aisle with her parents by her side.

When they reached the altar, Alexandra pressed a peck on Roxy’s cheek then shook Maximo’s hand. Vincent did the same, except his handshake was more aggressive as if he were saying, “if you hurt her, I will kill you.” Vincent and Alexandra took a seat on their chairs and the ceremony began.

As the priest spoke, they looked into each other’s eyes as if they were the perfect couple. Caroline glanced at the woman, standing amongst the bridesmaids. She sensed a pinch of jealousy in her expression. Caroline looked back at the couple as the priest continued. ”What are you going to do, Maximo? You still have time to run away,” Caroline thought.

“Roxy King, do you take Maximo Diaz as your lawful wedded husband, to have and to hold, from this day forwards, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and cherish until death do you part?”

Roxy looked into Maximo’s eyes and responded, “I do.” The priest turned to Maximo and asked, “Maximo Diaz, do you take Roxy King as your lawful wedded wife, to have and to hold, from this day forwards, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and cherish until death do you part?”

Maximo looked into Roxy’s eyes. He then looked at Vincent who was sitting in the front row. He glanced at Leah and finally met eyes with Caroline. She raised her eyebrow. Maximo looked back at Roxy. She desperately waited for him to say, “I Do.” Maximo slowly let go of her hands as he said, “I do not.” Roxy looked at him in shock. “What? What did you just say?” She looked for the answer in his eyes but was not able to find what she was looking for.

Roxy looked at the crowd as tears blurred her eyes. She grabbed her dress and ran out of the venue. She took off her veil as she ran across the aisle. Vincent and Charles looked at Roxy until she left the venue. They then turned to look at Maximo. Caroline could see the anger in their eyes. They looked as if they were about to kill him. Caroline cleared her throat, getting their attention.

When they met eyes with her, she shook her head, letting them know to calm down, to not kill him just yet. Maximo walked out of the venue after that. Alexandra walked to the altar and said, “there is nothing to see here, please go home.” She wanted to get rid of the guests that filled the enormous venue as soon as possible.

When everyone left and Vincent, Charles, and Alexandra looked for Roxy, Caroline opened the doors to the venue right in front. The large round tables were set with plates, silverware, and glasses. She took a seat in one of the chairs in the large empty venue. She grabbed the pistol she had resting on her garter and placed it on the plate in front of her. She turned the pistol, making it spin on the plate.

Right at that moment, Maximo walked inside the venue. “I saw your note. That is why I’m here.” Caroline continued to spin the pistol on the plate. “I want you to delete the video. I already did my part.”

“You are in no position to bargain. When I told you to leave her, I meant that you break up with her in private, not in front of all the guests.”

“I already did my part, now I am asking you to delete the video-.” Caroline interrupted, “when this gun stops spinning, I will shoot you.” Stunned, Maximo looked at the pistol spinning on the plate then he looked back at Caroline. There was a part of him telling him she was bluffing, but there was another part of him telling him she would not hesitate. He saw the gun about to stop spinning. He turned around and walked out of the venue. Caroline chuckled. “Coward.”

“Either way, he is a dead man,” she thought to herself. Caroline stayed in the venue for a few more minutes. When she was about to leave, Liam walked in. “Thought you’d be here.” Without looking at him she said, “it takes you eight seconds to walk through those doors... I will give you four.”

“Caroline-.”

“One.” Liam hesitated. “Two.” Liam looked at her and turned around. He walked away, leaving her all by herself in the venue. She leaned back on the chair and let out a sigh. She fetched her cellphone from her clutch purse and called Joseph. “Are you following him?”

“Yes, Ms. King.”

“Good.”

“Report to me everything that happens.” Caroline hung up the phone and called Sebastian to take her to her penthouse since Joseph was using her car to follow Maximo. She grabbed the pistol on the plate and placed it back on the grater. She covered the pistol with her dress, again.

When Sebastian arrived at the hotel, he found Roxy entering at the same time. “Roxy?” He called out. Roxy turned to face the man that had just called her name. He looked into her sad eyes, with tears streaming down her face. He walked closer to her and embraced her in a hug. “What happened? Why are you crying?”

“He did not want to marry me. We were at the altar and he said he will not marry me.” Roxy buried her face on Sebastian’s chest. He cupped her face with his hands and uttered, “shh... it’s going to be okay.” He wiped away her tears and hugged her again.

Since Sebastian and Caroline are best friends, Roxy and Sebastian knew each other. They had never been this close, but seeing how devastated Roxy was, he could not help but worry. “I came here to pick Caroline up, but I can’t leave you alone in this state. Are you staying in this hotel?” Roxy nodded. “Come on, I will take you to your room,” Sebastian offered.

When they arrived at the suite, Roxy went into the bathroom to change out of her dress. She put on a bathrobe and walked out of the bathroom. Sebastian stood up from the couch and walked closer to her. “Feeling better?” Roxy shook her head. Sebastian looked at the bed and said, “why don’t you have some rest. You will feel better afterward.”

They walked closer to the King-sized bed and Sebastian tucked Roxy into bed. “I promise you will feel better as time passes. Look at me, I have been in love with a woman for years and she doesn’t see me in that way.” Roxy stared into Sebastian’s green eyes. He tenderly smiled and gently laid his hand on her cheek. He caressed her cheek. “Everything will be okay,” he assured.

When Sebastian was about to stand up from the bed, she gripped his hand. “Stay with me tonight, please.” Sebastian looked down and her as she stood up from the bed. She stepped closer to him and wrapped her arms around his neck. She did not know what came over her. Maybe it was because she wanted to feel desired, loved or she just wanted to forget about what happened earlier. She wanted Sebastian to be that person to make her forget everything, to make her feel desired and loved.

Sebastian leaned in and kissed her smooth lips. He wrapped his arms around her waist as they passionately kissed. They stepped closer to the bed until they were laying on the bed. He took off his shirt and continued to kiss her lips. He moved his lips down to her neck. He kissed her neck as she unbuckled his belt. She let out a breathy moan when he kissed her most sensitive spot. He moved the robe to the side, giving him full access to her shoulder.

Sebastian undid the leash to her robe, to find out she was naked underneath. He took off her robe and threw it to the ground. It did not take long for him to slip off his pants and boxer briefs. He passionately kissed her again as he slipped inside her.

Sebastian’s thrusts began slow, then he picked up his pace. He continued to kiss her lips as he locked his hand with hers. His thrusts quickened as she separated from the kiss to kiss his neck. She kissed his lips again as they both reached closer to the edge.

Roxy orgasmed first, tightening around him. “I’m cumming,” he huffed out. “You can cum inside, I’m on the pill,” she assured. He released his hot seed inside her after she let him know it was okay to do so. He slipped out of her and laid back next to her. He pressed a peck on her forehead and said in a sweet voice, “good night.” Roxy wrapped her arms around him, ensuring he would not go anywhere. He smiled and cuddled her to sleep.
