“What is it?” I asked as I looked at her still laying on my bed with her eyes widened up.
“What?” she muttered and shook her head before looking here and there and then back at me.
“Wait! You are still there? I thought you are he-“ she trailed up and sat back on the bed looking even more confused. Her eyes skimmed through my body and I looked down cautiously thinking if my shirt was ruined or something that made her look at it so awkwardly.
Was she thinking of something?
Rolling my sleeves up my shirt I looked at her with a strange emotion that I felt after a long time. Feeling of longitivity and possessiveness. It was the first ever time she expressed her feelings to me and I knew it that she was hurt, emotionally. But I couldn’t blame it on her. No wonder, this all began just because of my foolishness of assuming things. If only I had stopped those two humiliating her back in the Paris then they wouldn’t have gotten so far and I felt sorry for it.
“Look I’m sorry for carrying you up hear but you left me no choice. You were depressed and you wouldn’t listen to me,” I said as I sat next to her on the bed.
“So nothing happed?” she asked still looking confused.
“What? What are you talking about?” I asked as I stared at her face but then my eyes fell on her legs.
No. Not the time. Control yourself Xavier!
“Right!” I cleared my throat composing myself but all of a sudden the room grew hot and I got rid of the first two button of my shirt feeling hot.
“What! What are you doing?” she screamed looking at me pointing an accused finger my way.
“What am I doing?” I asked in confusion but then it hit me. Realizing what she was actually thinking a chuckle escaped my mouth as I grin at her.
“What are you thinking off Angela?” I teased as I leaned towards her. The more I leaned the more away she went.
“N-Nothing!” she squeaked out before composing herself as she turned around and shifted on the bed ready to leave.
“Wait!” I held her arm and stopped her from leaving.
“Sleep here,” I asked as I pulled her suddenly towards me and pinned her on the bed.
“No, I am fine in my room,” she laughed nervously as she tried to push me off her.
“But I am not. I feel scared when I sleep lonely and today you even lashed out on me. I don’t really think I can sleep the whole night. I will keep on thinking about your well-being and hence I will end up waking up late in the morning. Then I would be late for my office, then for my meeting and then for my-“
“Stop!” she clasped her hand over my mouth to stop m from speaking.
“So?” I removed her hand from my mouth “Will you accompany me today?” wiggling my eyebrows at her I tried as much as I could make her feel comfortable around me and forget the events that happened today that made her so upset.
Although she didn’t answer, still she managed to nod and I leaned forward planting a kiss on her cheeks feeling happy.
As I wrapped my arms around her and slept next to her, I watched as she fell asleep but it was when I could let myself let loose.
Possessiveness and anger surfaced though my body as I recalled how upset she looked back in the stairs. Her heart was broken and she felt humiliated all because of those two. As I slept next to her, I made up a promise to myself for let the one who hurt her suffer.
I woke up to something soft and cozy. Immediately a smile formed on my lips remembering what it might be. I looked up to see her still sleeping soundly. Her one hand was placed around my neck lazily and the other was resting on the pillow. My legs were still tangled with her.
Slowly I untangled myself from her and crawled up to her face level and slept next to her.I pushed some hair strands away from her face and looked at the alarm clock to see it’s already four in the morning.She changed her position and snuggled closer to me making me smile more.I held her and just slept there staring at her.
I promised her that I would sort all this out today and I have to do it.I slowly got up from the bed and covered her using the duvet and went inside the bathroom.
I did my morning usual taking a Good shower and brushed my teeth.Wrapping a towel around my waist, I walked out of the bathroom and walked into my walk in closet.
I wore my black business suit and shoes and styled my hair and wore my watch.
It was already five in the morning.I went back to was Angel was still sleeping and kissed her forehead softly.I walked out of the room and closed the door behind me.
First of all, I have to know what happened yesterday.But first I have to make sure that she doesn’t leave this Mansion.I called the Guards and strictly ordered them, not to allow Angel leave the House.
Then, I went to my study room and called Dominic.He picked up only in two rings groaning.
“WHAT? Do you even know what’s the time? Ugh Let me sleep” he groaned his voice husky.
“Shut up and get your ass up and come to my house.I want to know what happened yesterday,” I said in a cold tone.
“Ugh Fine but don’t you use your business cold tone on me.Asshole” he muttered and hung up.
After waiting for only twenty minutes Dominic reached my house and entered my study room with a scoffing face.
“What is it?” he askedsitting on the chair.
“What exactly happened yesterday?,” I asked and he sighed.
He leaned forward and rested his hands on the table.
“As for Lauren told me, that two slu- uh I mean Stephanie and Kim came there and started to insult her in front of everyone.Stephanie even poured her drink on Angela’s dress and humiliated her calling her names” he said and leaned back on his chair crossing his arms on his chest.
I sighed and got up from my chair and went towards the window.
“They both need to know their places.They have crossed their limits now,” I said deadly and stared out of the window.
“You know what? You should have shown them their places back in Paris.After Angela went away you confronted them for their behavior and have them a warning but according to me if you would have done that in front of Angela then this all should never have happened.I doubt that you even have let Angela know about this.Am I right?” he askedwith a determined look.
I didn’t reply anything but I guess he got his answer because he sighed shaking his head and got up from his seat and came to stand next to me.
“Dude, I don’t understand why do you always show yourself as the bad one? If you really love her then let see the real you Man” he said and kept his hand on my shoulder turning me around to face him.
“You don’t need to be the bad guy.Be it when you want to keep somebody safe or protected.But don’t be the Man who you are not.Just keep this in mind, You are her husband and she is your wife and let me tell you one thing misunderstandings is the first step to hatred so don’t let it ruin your way to Love Man.Give her a chance.Give yourself a chance.Give your relationship a chance.Please” he said with a concerned face.
I pursed my lips and took in his words.Deep down I knew that he was right.
I have to clear every misunderstanding if I to want her to get a glimpse of my Love.
“Do you understand?” he askedagain.
“Hmm,” I hummed back.
He sighed and went back and sat on his seat.“So now what’s the planning?” he askedraising an eyebrow.
I grinned devilishly and he raised his eyebrows more.
“Woah! What’s going on your mind dude? I know that from of yours.It’s definitely big” he askedwiggling his eyebrows.
“Oh, you don’t have any Idea what I’m going to do,” I said and picked up the phone and talked with the person for some minutes and hung up.
Dominic raised his eyebrows and intertwined his fingers and pursed his lips.
“We need to do some work. Now get your ass up and follow me,” I said and walked out of the room with a devious plan in my mind.
Dominic shook his head but didn’t uttered anything and followed me.
Stephanie and Kim, you are to regret insulting my woman.
