Chapter 24

I don’t remember how long I was there. All I know it was dark, the garden lights were on, it turns out I’ve been here too long. Suddenly I feel hungry, I look at my wrist watch. I think I’m going to order food from the motel. I got off the swing, and walked inside. In my room I called the hotel service. I turned on the television, leaned on the sofa while waiting for my food.

I was playing my phone when suddenly there was a knock at my door. i thought the hotel service would be amazing if the food arrived this fast. I opened the door, I was stunned, shocked and my body froze.

Adam standing in front of me, he’s like a mess. My mind was blank for a moment, he immediately hugged me tight. Suddenly his scent filled my nose at once. I was shocked by his action. He whispered in my ear

“Don’t ever do this again. You don’t know how worried I am ”

His hug was so warm, I couldn’t stand it, all the feelings I was holding suddenly came out. I cried in his arms. He rubbed my back soothingly while I cried and whispered sweet nothings to calm my erratic breathing. He bounced me slightly as he by stepped the bodies, continuing to kiss my hair and pat my bum in a comforting manner.

“I’m sorry for ruining your shirt”

“It’s just clothes, it doesn’t matter The most important things is that I find you”

“I’m glad you came” I’m giggled. My tears had finally stopped rolling down my cheeks and a small smile adorned my face.

“You are so beautiful” Adam whispered, gazing into my eyes. He rested his forehead against mine and captured my gaze for what seemed like forever.

I led him to the sofa. When I wanted to sit down, he suddenly pulled me to his lap

“I don’t want to be away from you” my face flushed, he put his hands around my belly. I put my hands around his neck.

“Wait, how do you know I’m here ?”

He smirks “Oh sweetheart, you don’t know what I can do. Tell me now why you have to run away like this”

I don’t understand what happened. But when I was around Adam, my mood changed. All of my defenses suddenly collapsed. I feel he looks like my Dad. He can give me peace several times I was near him. Even though I was annoyed with his behavior sometimes, but I felt comfortable and calm with him. I had never felt this way in my life.

Adam repositioned me so that I was straddling his lap, facing him. He wipe my tears with his thumb and pressed a soft kiss against my pouty lips.

“Penny for your thought ?” Adam questioned with a soft smile on his lips.

“Blake’s cheated on me, I caught him making love to a girl when I was about to surprise him. I need to calm myself. It’s not that I’m not angry to see him like that. It’s clear I feel betrayed. I’ve been loyal to him all this time. I’ve tried not to get highly hopes on him, but it still hurts”

He grabbed both of my hands and squeezed them tightly. I could feel Adam’s tense state, as if it was his own emotion. Adam’s brows furrowed and his mouth set into a straight line.

“So because of that bastard you had to leave me ?” Adam eyes widened

I frown “That bastard is my ex-boyfriend, and you are not. I’m not the type to beat him up or cry for him after what he did to me. Maybe it was my fault why he did that.”

He chuckled while stroking my hair “Before you hit him, I killed him first” I looked at him with a frown. He was still stroking my hair with a grin. I heard a knock on my door. I moved from his lap to the door. The waiters smiled at me, in her hand she was carrying the tray of food I ordered. I told him to put it on the table. I thanks to her, she nods then leaves.

“I didn’t invite you, so I ordered food for my self. Have you eaten ? I looked at him

Adam grabbed my jaw firmly, raising my head so that my eyes met his own “Come with me, I don’t want you here”

I’m suddenly confused by what he said “I’ve booked this room for three days, where are we going anyway ?”

He didn’t say anything but instead took my suitcase, put my belongings into the suitcase and took my hand. He doesn’t seem want to be here. “Where are we going ? Wait, Adam. Why do we have to rush like this ? He ignored me, just walked fast. One hand holding my suitcase and the other hand holding my wrist.

In the parking lot, I saw his car was there and the person I saw before at the campus was also there. It seems that the person was his driver. “Where are your car keys ?” He said sternly. I took my key from my bag then he snatched it. He walked over to the person, whispered to him then handing him my suitcase and keys. That person just nodded and left.

Adam walked over to me and led me to his car. He opened the passenger door for me. His sharp eyes beckoned me to step inside. Instead arguing with him, I got into the car.

“Adam, do you mind telling me where are we going ? You suddenly kidnapped me from my motel, took me like this, your habits that I can never understand. Do things as you want without considering my feeling” I said it while frowning. He just looked straight at the road while holding the steering wheel.
