Chapter 10

When I woke up in the morning, I was tucked in the guest room. I get down the bed and go to Axl’s room. It was weird seeing him not there.

I go downstairs and find him sitting on the couch texting someone. He was shirtless.

I go over and put my arm around him and kiss his neck. He was surprised by my sudden gesture.

“Good morning,” I say and I look into his phone. I see that he was texting that blonde, Lilly.

“What are you doing Lexi?” he asked pulling away from me and covered his phone. He was frustrated.

“Well we kissed last night so I thought-,” I start.

“Come on. It was just a kiss. It was for fun,” he says making the kiss as a no big deal one.

“It was for fun?” I ask, my voice raising. I couldn’t believe it.

“Yeah, obviously. Do not tell me that you didn’t enjoy it,” he said winking at me.

“It meant nothing to you? NOTHING AT ALL?” I ask with full of anger.

“Whoa, calm down Lexi. Why is it such a big deal for you?Stop making it a big deal. Yeah sure we kissed last night but was just a kiss” he asked.

“I am making it a big deal? Of course it is a huge thing for me.I’ll tell you why. It’s because I like you Axl. Ever since the day we started talking. I thought that somehting as going on between us when you kissed me but it was for fun right? You played me. After all what can a player do?” I say walking upstairs to change so that I can get out of this house.

Once I was done, I open the door but I was stopped by Axl, “Where are going baby?” he aked in his player’s voice.

I didn’t need to answer him. I just walk past him and bang the door really hard.

I drive my car to the nearest museum. I found it comforting to see th art.

I go and play my anger playlist loud on my phone. Just the someone poked me.

“Yes,” I say pulling out my headphones. A guy who looked about the a=sam age as me stood there. He was 6 foot something and had brown messy hair wit green eyes.

“I think you would wnt to lower your volume. The song is heard out loud and it might damag your ears,” He said looking concerned.

“I am so sorry,” I say turning my music off before giving him my full attention. I was excited when I caught him looking at me when I looked up.

“I am Max, Max Hayes,” he said.

“Alexis Winston but call me Lexi,” I sy.

He was super friendly and we walked around the whoe museum. I was surprise to see his knowledge on these things.

I learnt that he goes to the same Uni as me and has taken Visual arts and Mathematics. He smart and smoking hot.

I got tons of messages from Axl asking me about dinner but I just ignore it.

“Shit its 6 already?” I ask looking at the time.

“It was nice meeting you Max,” I say smiling.

“Well wanna grab dinner before you go?” he asked running his hand through his hair.

“Sure,” I reply walking next to him as we go to the nearest burger shop. They made the best burger I have ever eaten.

“Lexi, can I have your number just in case I need a partner when I’m bored or when I’m at the museum?” he asked innocently.

“Sure,” I say exchanging numbers with him.

He was such a gentleman. He dropped me off at home. Well Axl’s house. I go in and open the door. Axl was standing there with his hands crossed over his chest. He seemed mad.
