Chapter 18

Sienna’s POV;

I start picking out an outfit. I finally choose to wear a sparkly rose gold tank top, tucked into a white skirt which reaches just above my knees. Along with a Pearl belt around my waist. I let my hair into loose curls since I have long hair. I paired my outfit with silver heals and a silver bracelet.

I head downstairs my silver heels clicking against the tiled floor. I walk towards the door and see Lucas standing there with roses in his hands, I look at him and smile as I walk towards him.

“Hey.”

“Hey.”

“You look beautiful!” Lucas says looking me up and down and hands me the roses. He’s wearing a blue tux with his hair slicked back.

“Thank you. You clean up nice as well.”

“Shall we head out?”

“Yeah sure, let me just put these flowers inside.” I say and walk towards the kitchen. I didn’t even realise Xander had walked into the kitchen until he stood behind me.

“You look beautiful.” Xander says huskily in my ear, sending shivers down my spine.
He takes a step back and walks away. What was that all about?

I head back to where Lucas was standing and I see him just scrolling through his phone.

“Hey! Are you ready to go?” I nod my head but just before leaving the house I see Xander standing in the corner sending daggers towards us. I wink at him and he smirks at me and I walk out. Oh god, why did I just do that?? I mentally slap myself for doing that.

We walk towards his car and he goes to the passengers side to open the door for me. Such a gentleman. He goes to his side of the car and we start driving.

“Where are we going?”

“We are going to dinner.” Thank god I wore an appropriate outfit. I don’t want to be underdressed. I wonder what Xander is doing right now? Wait, why am I thinking about him?? I’m on a date with another guy!! I shouldn’t be thinking about anyone else!! Snapping out of my thoughts we came to a stop. I look up and see the restaurant named ‘Le Benardin’. Wow he bought me to the most famous restaurant in New York! I’ve never been to this restaurant before, even though I have lived in New York almost my whole life. Don’t get me wrong it’s not that I can’t afford it, it’s just because I prefer to eat at fast food places.

We walk in and a waiter sits us at a table.

“I knew you were Italian so I bought you to an Italian restaurant. I hope you like it!” Lucas says nervously scratching the back of his neck, which makes me giggle.

“Don’t worry Lucas! I like it. Plus I’ve never been here before.” I assure. I see him release a breath he was holding.

“Ciao! What would you like to order?”

“I would like to have lasagna please.”

“Same for me.”

“Would you like to have any drinks?”

“Wine.” Lucas replies.

“Ok, I’ll be right back with your food.”

“I’m just going to head to the bathroom to freshen up before the food gets here.”

“Sure!” I head towards the female bathroom. After I have finished freshening up I walk out and instantly get pulled away by someone. I was about to punch them when they grabbed my fist. I try to scream but he covers my mouth with his hand. He takes me to a secluded area in the restaurant.

“Shh calm down princess.” Wait. I recognise that voice. He releases his grip on me and I turn around to be faced with none other than Xander.

“What the f*ck are you doing here?!! Did you follow me?!!!” I ask angrily. How did he know I was here??

“I own this restaurant sweetheart.” He says cockily. Should I even be surprised? Of course he owns this restaurant too. Just when I thought I would be able to get away from him for a bit. But of course he turns up here.

You know you’re happy to see him. My thoughts tell me. No I’m not!

“Is there even a place in New York that you don’t own?!” I say crossing my arms.

“Probably not. Except the ones owned by the venom killers.”

“So. Why did you drag me here?!”

“Just wanted to ask, how’s your date going?” He had this glint in his eyes when he asked, but I couldn’t figure out what it is.

“It’s going great!”

“Mhm.” He says and walks away. Ok, that’s the second time he has done that. I’ll ask him when I get home. I head towards the table and I see that the food has arrived.

“Hey.”

“Hey.” I sit down and just stare at the food. Why did Xander just walk away when I told him about my date? Why am I even thinking about him??

You like him. My thoughts say. No I don’t! Do I?

“You okay?”

“Huh, yeah I’m fine. Just have a bit of a headache that’s all.”

“Take some medication when you get back home.” I nod my head and start eating.

“So, Sienna, tell me a bit about yourself.”

“There really isn’t a lot to know about me. My name is Sienna Garcia, I’m 21. My favourite colour is blue, and I live with Cora. What about you?” I didn’t want him to know about my mafia background but I know he is suspicious.

“Well, my full name is Lucas Murray, I’m 22 years old, my favourite colour is dark blue, and I live on my own.”

“Sienna, why were you are Mr.Knight’s house when I came to pick you up? Sorry, I just had to ask.” Shoot, how do I get out of this one?

“It’s because of the attack, it’s not safe to go back there.”

“What about your parents house?”

“They are on a business trip.”

“Oh okay.”

During the date we got to know each other and I found out that Lucas is really easy to talk to. But I still couldn’t get Xander out of my head. What is wrong with me?? After the date Lucas drove me home and we said our goodbyes. When I walked into the penthouse I walk into the living room and see,

“Cora!!” I run up and hug her.

“When did you get back??” I ask pulling out of the hug.

“I got back a few hours ago. Aiden called me saying that you missed me and things weren’t great back here. So of course I had to come back, I couldn’t leave you alone. But I see you went out on a date.” She says wiggling her eyebrows.

“I went on a date with Lucas.”

“Spill the tea! I also want details!!” I knew she would’ve asked that.

“Fine. But I’m going to go and get changed first, my feet are killing me in these heels.” I say and she nods. I walk out and head towards my bedroom. I get changed into some pyjamas. When I walk out of the bathroom after getting changed and removing my makeup, I see a note on my bed.

Come up to the balcony in my room.

-Xander

I wonder what he wants to talk about.
