What Keith Wants

Chapter 18

Passionate. Urgency.

It was what I could feel at that moment as I felt his lips mashed against mine, his soft and moist and hot and breathy, not trying to win a battle but seeking union and closeness and the sharing of one breath, one sensation, one timeless and passionate moment that we shared had my mind blown away. I was lost at that moment and I knew I have been attracted to him from the beginning and it was why my hands were roaming on his wet hair, not getting enough of it.

But just like everything that comes to an end. The moment came to an 'abrupt' end as all of a sudden I felt his body, insanely heating up and before I could open my eyes, a ball of light flashed before me and a humming sound of electricity and before I knew it, he was gone.

"K-Keith?" it was what I uttered when I looked around totally flabbergasted by the situation. The room was silent and the only noise heard in the room was the beeping sound of the water purifier as I looked around for him and then simply stood in the middle, touching my lips which were now swollen and the only sole proof that we were kissing.


It was already half-past eight in the evening and I was still in his apartment, alone. God only knew where he went and why he went. I had already done my part of the job, by looking for him not only in his apartment but also near his apartment building, soaking in rain only to find no single trace him.

It was as if the wind or maybe the ground swallowed him and god damn to his power, which interfered in the wrong time. I was tired and fully drenched, it was how I ended up returning back to his apartment and thinking of waiting for him while I chose to wore a shirt of his that I thought he wouldn't mind while my wet clothes, dried up.

It was raining furiously and I hoped wherever he was, he took care of himself. Coming to think about it, I still have no idea how he that powers or he inherited it from his family.

My eyes fell on the diamond ring on my finger and I turned it around, lost in deep thoughts when all of a sudden, the door opened and immediately I stood up only to find Keith, all soaked up. He ruffled his wet hair and entered the apartment when his eyes fell on me.

"Keith where were you? I have been looking for you. Just where did you go-"

"I think you should go back to your hostel, Ms. Alvis," he said and that made me stop in mid-sentence as I gawked at him. He came back after four hours and after we shared a passionate kiss, it was what he had to say? 'Go back to your hostel?'

"Ms. Alvis?" forgetting the other things, I concentrated more on the way he addressed me at the moment.

"What else do you expect me to call you? Did you forget about the plan we made? We are being forced to marry each other and last time I remember, you tried to end your life because of this. Did you really forget that we are faking our engagement?" he asked as he stood their calmly which had me totally agitated.

What's wrong with him?

He was the one who kissed me!

And now he tells me that we are faking everything and I should just return back to my hostel?

"What about the moment we shared a few hours ago? I want to ask if we are faking this then why did you kiss me?"

I was in no mood to take a shit. I was a straightforward woman and I hated keeping anything to myself. I needed to know if I was the only one who was feeling something for him. Or was I really at fault for giving myself to him and letting him kiss me?

"What about it? Don't tell me you took it for something else," he rubbed his chin and chuckled and all I did was raise an eyebrow at him for his reaction. "Whatever it is, don't forget that we are grown-ups. That was just a lusty moment and noth-,"

I didn't even give him the time to finish his stupid sentence when I walked back to the balcony and picked my clothes up, folding it in the process. I went back inside, only to find him standing there in the corner looking at me. I picked up my purse and was just going to walk past him wanting to get away from him when he stood right before me and stopped me from going anywhere.

"I will drop you. It's raining outside and it's already dark. It will be hard to find a ca-"

"Did I ask for your kind help?" I asked as I looked up at him with an icy tone and for a moment I thought I caught him inhaling deeply but then he pursed his lips and stepped aside getting me space to leave.

"I will remember what you told me, today," I told him as I turned around to face and he nodded, shoving his hands back into his pant pockets.

"But I want you to remember this too. Don't ever touch me, next time," I told him with anger filled in my voice and he flinched for a second but then he picked up his glasses from the side table and wore it as he looked back at me, straight into my eyes.

"I'm sorry," he said and I nodded.

"Good! You should be," I told him as I tightened my grip on my purse and holding my clothes, firmly I walked out of his apartment, with anger mentally taking an oath that I will never put a foot on this apartment building, ever again. But then I cursed myself as I felt tears welled up in my eyes and I wiped them angrily as I punched the elevator's button to the ground floor and cursed myself for thinking something that could never happen with a man like him.

This was the first time, Vienna Alvis failed to read a man.

"Wrong!" I muttered as the elevator's door pinged open and I marched out thinking about my dad. "All men are the same," I yelled as I angrily wiped the shameless tears that refused to stop.

Tears of embarrassment.
