“I hate to interrupt but we need to talk.” Xander’s father says.
“So now that we know what happened to Scar in his childhood. We need to talk about what happened 10 years ago.” My dad sighs.
“Why?! You already blame us for your mother’s death! What is there to talk about Elijah?!!!” I’m assuming that’s Xander’s fathers name, my dad seems pissed.
“At first I did, but when the venom killers attacked Sienna, I knew something was wrong! I’m giving you a chance to explain now. Take it or leave it!” Elijah yells. My dad sighs and starts to explain.
“During the war between our mafia’s and the venom killers. Your mother came to see if we were alright because she felt as if though something was wrong. When she came out me and Chantelle tried to take her back to a safe place. Then gunshots were fired. Once we thought she was in a safe place, we tried to go after them they got away. When we tried to hurry back to your mom we heard gunshots being fired from behind us, so we held our gun up just in case there were more guards that needed to be killed. When we looked ahead we saw your mom fall to the ground with a bullet between her eyes. We looked behind us and saw one of their men with a gun in his hand, who had just shot your mom. I killed him while Chantelle rushed to your mother and tried CPR on her, but it was too late. She was like a mom to Chantelle. You know for a fact what happened to Chan’s mom.” My mom tried to save Xander’s grandma. I knew I shouldn’t have judged them before knowing the truth first.
“Bullsh*t! There is no way!!” Elijah yells.
“This is the reason why I didn’t want to tell you in the first place!! I knew you wouldn’t believe me!!” My dad yells, with pain in his voice. Wow I can’t believe they were best friends, they act like they want to murder each other, by the death glares they are giving each other.
“When you saw us holding our guns up it was because we were ready to shoot whoever comes our way. They made it look like me and Chan killer her so our friendship and our alliance ends. They know for a fact both of our mafia’s joined together would make us unstoppable. They were smart enough, and you were the fool to believe we would ever do something like that!!”
“They outsmarted us!! How?? We are always a step ahead of them!!” Elijah yells confused. I am honestly really confused right now, and I have no intention of getting involved. But of course somehow I get dragged into it.
“There is a rat!!” Xander yells after some time. Who could it be?
“A rat?? Hijo, are you sure??” Xander’s mom asks.
“What other explanation is there? They were a step ahead of us, they knew who was going to be there and they knew who they wanted to kill.” Elijah looks towards my dad and says,
“I believe you, and I’m sorry for not believing you. I guess anger clouded my judgment. Truce?”
“Truce. But that doesn’t mean I forgive you.” My dad says and shakes hands with Elijah.
“Ok everyone is dismissed.” Xander says, and everyone leaves the room, apart from Xander’s family and my family.
“Let’s go to the office.” Elijah says to my dad.
“Let’s catch up.” Xander’s mom says to my mom and they head out. Scar and Aiden leave as well, leaving me and Xander alone.
Xander walks up to me and picks me up bridal style again.
“I can walk on my own you know!”
“No you can’t, you’re hurt!” He says and starts walking up the stairs. I like this side of him, caring. He acts like he cares, just the thought of it makes me have butterflies in my stomach.
“This is going to be your room.” He says stopping in front of a door. He gently puts me down, and holding my hand making sure I won’t fall. Having his hand in mine sends tingles all around my body which makes my insides jittery. Why am I feeling like this? Even he didn’t make me feel like this.
I open the door with Xander’s hand still holding me. I walk into the room and gasp. It’s a huge grey room with a round, pointy chandelier, with a king size bed. There are mirrored bed side tables on each side of the bed with a mirror in the corner of the room.
“Do you like it?” Xander asks nervously scratching the back of his neck. Aww so cute, he’s nervous.
“Like it??!!! I love it!!!!” He slowly walks me to my bed.
“I’ll leave you to it then.” He let’s go of my hand leaving my hand cold and missing his warmth. I shouldn’t be feeling like this! I come out of my thoughts and change into some pyjamas. Sleep took over me quickly and I fall into a deep sleep.
F*ck f*ck f*ck! How did they figure this out so quickly?? Vincent need to step up his game! I need to claim what is mine! I can’t let anyone get their hands on what’s mine!
I walk towards my car since everyone is asleep and head towards The venom killers mansion.
“VINCENT!” I walk into his office and walk towards his desk.
“What the f*ck is taking you so long?!! They have already made a truce and are allies again. You need to step up your game! If you don’t we’re all f*cked!”
“I have a plan.” He smirks wickedly.
“That’s f*cking genius!!” You’ll be mine soon Love, and we’ll live happily ever after.
I wake up the next morning feeling sore. I look and see it’s almost noon. How did I sleep in so late and why didn’t anyone wake me up?? I look towards my bedside table and see pain killers and water with a note saying,
‘Drink up :)’ i smile and take the pain killers. I then get up and get ready for the day.
I chose to wear a black off the shoulder too with light blue ripped jeans. After getting dressed I head downstairs.
“Good morning bambina!” My dad says and come and kissed my forehead same with my mom.
“Good morning!” I reply back.
“Why didn’t any of you come to wake me up?”
“You were tired yesterday so we let you sleep in.” My mom replies.
“What’s for breakfast?” I ask just then my stomach rumbles and everyone in the room chuckle.
“Pancakes.” Xander’s mom replies and I squeal in excitement, which makes everyone chuckle again. I walk towards the dining table and take a seat. Sebastian sits next to me while Xander’s mom brings the pancakes.
“So, how are you feeling?” Sebastian asks.
“I feel fine after I had the pain killers.”
“By the way who placed them on my bedside table this morning?” I asked.
“It was Xander.” Xander’s mom replies. Wow never expected that answer. She bring the the pancakes over.
“Thank you Mrs.Knight.” I say.
“No no! Please call me Evelyn. Saying Mrs.Knight makes me feel old.” She says which makes me chuckle.
“You have beautiful laugh.” Sebastian says in a whisper and I say a quiet thanks back. If my dad heard that, Sebastian would already be on the ground.
After eating the pancakes I get up but my mom stops me.
“Where are you going bambina?”
“I’m going to get ready for work. I have the afternoon shift.”
“Your not going!” My dad says.
“But dad, I’m bored, I’ve got nothing to do.”
“Your not working! You just got out of the hospital yesterday!”
“Fine but can I just go visit my friends who are working there?” I ask. Giving my dad my best puppy eyes.
“Fine. But be back in an hour.” Yes! I knew it would work.
“You really need to stop falling for her puppy eyes.” My mom says.
“She got that from you!” My dad say crossing his arm. I giggle and walk out.
“Hey guys!” I walk into the coffee shop lounge and everyone rushes up to me and hugs me.
“Girl! We heard what happened! Are you okay??” My friend Lily asks me.
“I’m fine. I took some pain killers this morning so I’m feeling a bit better.”
“Are you going to do your shift?” I shake my head.
“Good. Because we weren’t going to let you.” Everyone nods oin agreement.
“I just came to say hi to you all. I should head back, my dad wants me home in 10 minutes.”
“Bye girl! Get some rest.”
“Bye!” I shout and walk out. Just as so was walking towards the door, I hear my name being called.
“Sienna!” I look behind me and see Lucas walking towards me.
“Oh, Hey Lucas!”
“So, how come you stopped me?”
“I-I wanted to ask if you would want to go on a date with me?” He asks nervously. I mean what harm would it do? I haven’t been on a date in a while.
“Sure.” I say with a smile and he smiles back, excitement clear on his face.
“I’ll pick you up tonight at 7pm. Just text me your address. Here is my number.” He says and we exchange numbers. I head back towards the penthouse. Once I walk in I couldn’t stop smiling. Lucas is a decent guy. He is quite handsome and has a great personality. I didn’t even realise I had bumped into a wall until I stroke my head. Wait this isn’t a wall. I look up and see Xander standing there. I realised I had just bumped into his chest. I take a step back so there is some space between us.
“What are you smiling about?” He asks.
“That’s none of your business.” He gives me a death glare which sends shivers down my spine and I find myself answering his question.
“I went to the cafe to see my friends and then Lucas asked me out on a date.” I say and then I look and see Xander’s fists turning white and see him raging with anger and then he walks away. What was that about? I walk up to my room and start getting ready for my date.
