Spin off 2. A Little Romance
Xavier looked at Angela through the crowd of people in their house. She looked breathtakingly gorgeous in that red bodycon dress. All he wanted to do was to walk pushing past the people and drag her towards their bedroom where he could have her in his own ways.
“Damn!” he muttered drinking the wine.
“What? Did you say something?” his father asked looking at him confused.
“Uh No No!” Xavier shook his head at his father and smiled nervously before turning around to talk with his business associates. “Better if I keep my thoughts to myself” he thought.
Xavier’s father organised a small business party where all their business partners and associates were invited with their family members. Xavier had too brought Angela to the party which was held in Xavier’s dad’s house. He expected it to be a boring party but to his absolute shock Angela made it totally different what he had actually thought. She looked even more sexy in that red dress. He glanced at his wife as she talked with the other ladies in the party. Clearly she was having fun in socializing.
Completely opposite to what Xavier had to go through.
Like a statue he stood with his business associates not even listening to any of their conversations. He took another glass of wine from the server and glanced towards Angela to find her already staring at him. A sly grin marred his face when he caught his wife already staring at him.
Xavier excused himself from his associates and walked towards the ladies with one hand in his pant pockets while the other holding the glass of wine.
“Oh here is your husband” said Mrs Smith who was Xavier’s aunt. “Ah! So you all are here” Xavier said smiling at them but smirked looking at Angela.
He already had everything planned inside his mind and as he was The Great Mr. Egoistic he wouldn’t let anyone come in between what he wanted. And currently,what he wished for was Angela his wife, to be in his arms. He had been away from home from last two weeks.
He was away in a business meeting but as soon as he landed back in Chicago he had to attend the party with his wife as ordered by his father for it was an important gathering for their company and Xavier had to oblige to his father’s order. But he couldn’t resist the attraction that he felt for Angela.
He wanted her and that was final. He was going to have her. He could no longer control it anymore. To his absolute relief they had left Ace their four year old son in his with Lucas and Emily.
That means the house is empty. He could have Angela to himself now.
He took small steps towards Angel and soon stood by her side. “Come to the side!” he whispered into her ear before leaving her with those ladies. She glanced his back and excused herself from the ladies. Like Xavier, she too couldn’t get a chance to talk to him.
She wanted to welcome him home properly but she had to get ready for the party and as soon as Xavier arrived they left for the party. She walked towards the corner and smiled seeing her husband seeping wine and already looking her way.
“Xavier” she smiled.
She kept her hands on his chest and took the glass of wine from his hands. “You already had enough. No more!" she said and kept the glass on the nearby table. Xavier truly was her Prince charming. She chuckled when Xavier blew air out from his mouth on her face.
“Let’s get back home,” Xavier whispered into her ear to which she shook her head yes. Like him, she was too eager to reach back home. He held her hands and both of them walked towards the exit but were stopped by none other but Brad. Xavier’s dad.
“Where are you two going? Come let me introduce you two to Mr. Benson” he said and dragged both of them towards the man. Xavier glared at his father’s suit while Angela just shook her head at Xavier’s sulking face. He looked like a cute little beaver.
Xavier stood their uninterested to their conversation. “So much for a little romance” he thought. Meanwhile, Angela was again dragged away by the other ladies for talking about charity work. Xavier closed his eyes and stood quietly while his father talked business.
An idea struck his mind and he grinned like a Cheshire cat.
“What?” Brad asked looking at his odd behaviour. “N-Nothing” Xavier laughed nervously and stood their silently waiting for his father to finish talking.
“What if we can’t leave?" He could still get her.
As soon as he got the chance he left searching for Angela. He was in a need to hurry and get Angela before anybody else could finds them and make them wait any longer. He found her drinking water near the filter.
“Angel!” he said once he reached her. “Xavi-”
“Where are we going?” Angela asked Xavier while he held her hand and dragged her with him. “Upstairs” he said and smiled cheekily at her. “They must be searching for us,” Angel whispered to him worried. He didn’t reply but both of them went upstairs.
As soon as they reached Xavier’s childhood room, Xavier slammed the door shut and pulled Angel closer to him. “Xavier!” Angel giggled. “I have missed you” he said as he nudged his head in the crook of her neck inhaling her scent.
“Me too” she whispered smiling.
Xavier began to kiss her neck which made her giggle. “I-” he was again cut off by the sound of his phone ringing. “Xavier your phone!” Angela said when he didn’t pick it up. “Forget it” he said concentrating more on her. “Xavier” Angela tried to push him away.
“Ugh! Fine” he muttered irritated and took the phone out and looked at it to find it was Angela’s brother who was calling. “Its your brother” he said before picking it up. “Xavier!” Lucas Angela’s brother said: “Ace wants to talk to you” he said and Xavier heard the commotion before Ace his son answered the phone.
“Dad!” the sweet little boy said.
“What’s up buddy?” Xavier asked while Angela looked at him curiously thinking if everything was alright. "can’t sleep" he said but he sounded sleepy as he yawned while talking. Xavier smiled at his son.
“Its alright buddy. Close your eyes and think about the story that mommy has told you” Xavier said to which Angela smiled. “I can’t sleep without my blanket!” Ace groaned. “Oh! your blanket" Xavier said as he understood now. Ace could never sleep without his favourite fluffy blanket.
“Buddy give the phone to Lucas" Xavier asked and Ace hummed in response. “Lucas, the blanket must be inside the bag. Angela made sure to pack it. Please give it to Ace. He can’t sleep without it” Xavier told Lucas.
“Oh! okay” he said in response and searched for it holding the phone. When he got it, they hung up on each other. “So? where were we?” Xavier asked smirking as he took a step towards Angela. When the door knocked and Xavier groaned in irritation. “Son are you there?” it was Brad, Xavier’s father. Xavier held the bridge of his nose while Angela chose to answer the door.
“uh! Yes. I came to use the washroom!” she said and walked towards the door and opened it. “Oh! c’mon lets go downstairs. The guests are waiting for you two” he said and walked downstairs leaving them alone.
“I swear-” Xavier groaned in irritation.
The rest of the party, Xavier and Angela had to avoid each other because if they didn’t then they knew they would surely lose to the temptation. Angela began to think that Xavier is fine now. The way he talked to the guests, he laughed and enjoyed with them.
She was happy for him. When the party ended, Xavier and Angela made their way to their car. “What a great party it was!” Xavier laughed while driving.
“He is normal,” Angela thought but all of a sudden he stopped the car and looked at her.
“Come to the backseat!”
