Chapter 2

It had been months since Xander left our marriage, the first few months were hell especially after that one month I saw him and Mia together I became a bit insecure about myself and to keep out of the rut depressive stage I was in I visited the strip club.
Now at the stop club I met Mandy a woman who would be my best friend from that moment she had mistaken me for another stripper.

I now go by exotic, yes I joined the stripping world in this high end gentleman's club I'm still work as an accountant by day but I couldn't miss the opportunity of doing something fun and spontaneous because of a mistaken identity.

Now I love doing all these accounts but it can be stressful at times and stripping helps and since I don't really need the extra money, I've been supplying it to the children's hospital and I've been feeling very happy to say the least, I mean Xavier is still on my mind but it's not like before and it's also helped I haven't seen him.

I make sure to avoid the tabloids as much as possible since I know that his a CEO to a multi billion dollar company that deals with tech.


Right now I'm waiting for Mandy to walk through the door anytime with those sexy legs of hers because I'm starving and she needs to hurry up.

(phone vibrates)
I pick the phone up from the table to see a notification from E buzz.
E buzz is just a business reporting sight about anything related to the business world

I open the notification and what I see has my heart feeling as if it's about to rip apart

E buzz

the Ceo Mr Xavier Black has proposed to his assistant Mia Graham and the stock market has been showing a huge increase.
Congratulations to the 2 newly proposed couple

The article goes on but I couldn't find it in myself to read further
Tears that I did not know were already saturated in my eyes are busy flowing down my cheeks ruining my eye liner

You have to be strong, you have to be strong Isabelle, I kept chanting in my head with my eyes closed

' BELLE! ' Mandy shakes my shoulder
'babe I've been calling your name for atleast 5 times, what's wrong?'

I look at Mandy and apologize, 'I'm sorry I was lost in my Grey world'
I hand her my phone and she immediately starts reading and I see her eyes pop out with her mouth agape

'oh my goodness love I'm so so sorry, I know it's almost been a year but I don't fault you if you feel heartbreak again, this man was the love of your life briefly after all' she then holds my hand

' I know I shouldn't feel like this now you know, it just sucks that I can't even be angry because Xavier is an upstanding guy, even though we broke up he still kept his word'
I swiped away my tears with my free hand and continued 'his a lovely man, yes he can be cold and let's not forget his player ways when we met but Mia sure is lucky, I wonder when I'll meet someone like him or better than him again and it's times like this that I can't help but be insecure you know'

'oh honey' Mandy remarks (listen to me now it's going to be okay my love just give it a bit more time, and I don't like it when those insecurities make an appearance because hey I had mistaken you for a stripper the first time we met and you know strippers are veeery attractive so bonus points for you, with that raven hair and those almost violet eyes, you look like you come from a fantasy movie. I'm still surprised how you even maintained you slim thick figure if you were not working out. I'm still so into your figure love '

Mandy's Words got me smiling again, I'm so glad I met her because my life has more color from its greyness.

I saw a waiter finally make his way toward us, I'm sure he didn't come earlier because of the tension then

As he got to our table I blushed so hard because he was a good looking guy and well let's just say a fumbled a few times choosing my order and his smirk didn't help either



AN:HEY THERE I GUESS THANK YOU FOR READING MY STORY, I DON'T HAVE A PARTICULAR TIME FOR UPLOADS AND I JUST GO WITH THE FLOW WHEN I'M HIT BY INSPIRATION BUT I TRULY HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR TIME HERE AND PLEASE POINT OUT WHAT I COULD IMPROVE ON
