Chapter 11

“What?” I ask him, frustrated. He narrowed his eyes at me.

“Where the hell have you been? Why didn’t you return any of my calls?” he asked blocking my path as I tried walking past him.

“Who are you my dad? And why do you even care?” I ask sitting on the couch as I managed to get past him.

“Let’s have dinner. I made spaghetti,” he says, arranging the table.

“No thanks I already had,” I say taking out my phone to text Max.

“With whom?” he asked, dropping the plates on the table.

“Why do you even care?” I ask not even looking at him.

“I do because you are staying here with me till tomorrow,” he asked, coming closer to me. He looked angry.

I ignore him and go to the guestroom to get my bag. When I reached down he was in the same position he was when I went upstairs to get my bag.

“Well then I won’t stay here then,” I say, walking out of the door before grabbing my car and purse.

“Are you crazy Lexi? It’s like 10 o’clock. Where do you think you are going?” he says coming up to my car.

“I will go anywhere with anyone but you,” I say driving off angrily. I had no clue where to go, so I drove around the town till 12 0’ clock. I was getting sleepy, so I decided to find a hotel and go sleep there.

I had enough money to get a room in a 5 star hotel so well I decided to stay there. But then I thought why not live with any one of my friends?

I call Emily up but well she was with Austin. So I called Ethan and he agreed because he had a spare room. He asked me what happened and why and I told that I will explain everything once I reach there. When I reached there I was sleepy so he told that he will talk to me tomorrow. He lived alone, well everyone but I and Axl.

I go to his flat and he showed me to his room. My room was actually good. It had a good big room and a bathroom. I liked it there and I immediately fell asleep.

I was woken up by my phone ringing. I rub my eyes and see that it was 3 o ’clock in the morning. I check the caller ID and saw that it was Axl I had a hundred missed calls and texts from him. No literally. I’m not kidding. I just ignore it and go back to sleep.

I woke up after like 2 hours or so and I heard Ethan talking to someone. The stranger’s voice was stressed. I sneak out of my room and try listening to them.

“… Then she said that she would go anywhere and with anyone but me. I tried calling everyone we know and she wasn’t there so I called you and found out that she had crashed here,” he said and I recognized it as Axl’s. So he had found me.

“It’s ok. She’s safe and is sleeping in my spare room,” Ethan replied whispering as if I would wake up if he talks too loud.

“Whom are you talking to Ethan?” I ask innocently walking downstairs. I was ready. I had showered and I wore fresh clothes. That’s when I made an eye contact with Axl.

“Baby, it’s so good to see that you are safe,” Axl replied coming to hug me. but I just push him away.

“Get away from me Axl,” I say looking at him with anger. After he played with my feelings, I couldn’t just talk to him like everything was alright

“Ethan, I am going out,” I say going out, before grabbing my stuff and dumping it into my car.

I go to the library and find Max there, reading a book.

“Well, hello there. I didn’t expect to see you here,” I say sitting next to him.

“Lexi, what a surprise,” he says looking up. “What are you doing here?” he asked.

“Well you see this library is for everyone. If you don’t want me to stay here, I’ll leave,” I say getting up from my chair.

“I am so sorry. Please stay,” he said holding my hand and we spoke for some time until he made a joke and I bursted out laughing and well we got kicked out of the library.

We went walking around the city and I really enjoyed his company. He took me out to get ice cream. It was cute parlour where it had benches.

“You know Max, even though I have just met you I feel like I’ve known you forever?” I say looking at him.

He put his hand on my thigh and I felt butterflies in my stomach.

“I have never met someone as pretty and beautiful as you,” he whispered into my ear. Was mesmerize and he kissed me. I let him because I wanted to kiss him so bad.
