Chapter 12

“I know that this is too soon but will you be my girlfriend Lexi?” he asked impatiently waiting for my answer.

I didn’t reply for a minute to just enjoy the look on his face.

“Lexi?” he said waving his hands in front of me.

“Oh yeah I’m sorry,” I say and he instantly became sad.

“Dummy, I am sorry because I was kept quiet for a minute not because I rejected you,” I say smacking his forehead lightly.

“So is that a yes?” he asked, raising his eyebrows.

“Duh,” I say kissing him. He tasted like mint and chocolate because of his ice cream. I kept blushing when he kissed me.

After kissing for some time I looked up and saw Axl looking at me. He had a different kind of expression. He was sad and mad at the same time.

“Lexi what are you doing here with him?” Axl asked me glaring at Max.

“What do you mean by what am I doing with him. He is my boyfriend and I was enjoying my time with him until you came,” I say spiting at him. “Come on Max, let’s leave,” I say pulling him with me and he put his arms around my shoulder and we walked away.

“I am so sorry for that. That was Axl, my neighbour I told you about,” I say sitting on one of the benches nearby, putting my head in my hands.

Max pulls me into a hug and I stay there for a long time. I felt him staring at me, and I look up and found him staring at me again.

“What?” I say giggling.

“It’s just you,” he replied dreamily.

“What about me?” I ask, confused.

“You are so gorgeous,” he says kissing my neck. I enjoyed it and giggled.

He dropped me off at Axl’s house when I insisted that he wouldn’t do anything.

“Oh didn’t expect you to be back home. What happened to your boyfriend?” he asked sarcastically.

“His name is Max and what’s your problem?” I ask sitting on the kitchen slab. I saw grapes and ate them. Axl was next to me doing god knows what.

He made some toast and we ate it, quietly. I started watching Sherlock and he joined too. I again fell asleep on the couch and I remember him picking me up and tugging me into the guest room. He looked like he wanted to say something but instead he just sighed and walked out of the room closing the door.
