Chapter 9

“Lexi, I am supposed to take you home with me because your parents are going out for the weekend,” Axl says coming up to me.

“Sure,” I say walking up to my car.

I reach home and see my bag sitting there with my clothes is it.

“Your mom brought it honey,” Iris tells and I smile at her.

“Thank you so much for having me here tonight, Iris,” I say.

“No worries honey. I wanted to ask your mom anyways because Hannah is going to stay with her father for the weekend and I am going out on a weekend trip. I can’t trust Axl to have this house for himself for a weekend let alone for a day,” she says and I laugh.

I had learnt that Axl’s dad and she were divorced and she was dating a rich guy called, Jake.

“Bye jelly bean. Enjoy,” I say kissing Hannah’s forehead.

“Bye Lexi,” She replied hugging me.

“Bye Iris. Have a good time,” I say hugging her.

“Thanks honey. Take care of Axl and yourself,” she says.

They left and we were left alone. “Do you want something to eat?” I ask.

“Sure,” he says and I go make us something to eat. After we were done eating, we decided to watch a movie.

“Which movie do you want to watch?” Axl asked me.

“I know that it’s not a movie but can we please watch Sherlock? Even though I’ve watched all the episodes, I can’t get enough of Benedict Cumberbatch in Sherlock. Please,” I ask practically begging him. I am in love with Sherlock.

“Ok but what is it about? I’ve never watched it,” he asked.

“Are you kidding me?” I ask hissing at him.

“Well tell me about it,” he says, he says leaning back, listening to me.

“Well it’s the adventures about Sherlock Holmes, a detective and his best friend, John Watson a doctor,” I say and we start watching it.

“That was honesty the best TV show I’ve ever seen,” he said as we completed the first season. He was excited after watching it.

“I know right? Promise me that we will finish all the four season of Sherlock during this weekend,” I ask, looking up at him. I am still gob smacked whenever I watch Sherlock even though I’ve already watched it a million times already.

“Hell yes,” he replies, grinning.

“Holy fuck, It’s 10 o’ clock. I am hungry. Let’s order something,” I say checking the time. Hey I am always hungry ok.

“I’ll make us pasta,” he said walking over to the kitchen. He was a good cook. I have tasted his food and it’s just to die for.

We have our dinner. The pasta that he made was a-mazing. I honestly had no clue how he could cook like that.

“Lexi, help me wash the dishes,” he says once we were done eating.

Being the lazy me I groan. “No shit, Sherlock. Guests don’t do this stuff. Don’t you know how to treat you guest Mr Scott?” I ask him, crossing my hands over my chest.

“Well I certainly do know that when the guest shows attitude towards the host they certainly have the right to do this,” he says smirking at me.

It took some time for me to figure out what was happening but it was too late. He had jumped over the couch and started tickling me. My stomach was aching because I was laughing so hard. He tickled me until nothing came out of my mouth.

“What the hell was that for Axl?” I ask him breathless once he stopped tickling me.

He was still on top of me. He started into my eyes and I into his. His face was dangerously close to mine. His hands travelled down my hands and to my waist. I was surprised when he kissed me. I didn’t see that coming. It took some time for me to give it back. His tongue was asking permission from my lips to get in and it gave permission, well my tongue enjoyed it. Our kiss became more passionate. We were too tired to do anything so I fell asleep on the couch hugging Axl.
