Spin off 3. Xavier Knights
Just because you all liked the spin offs, here is another one for you guys.
Xavier looked towards the sea, the breeze hitting his face as he smiled looking at his wife Angela who was enjoying the waves with her friend Emily. Lucas, Emily’s husband and Angela’s brother laughed at them as the wave made them lose their balance and both of them tumbled down into the water.
Xavier too laughed a little and sat on the sand looking at them who were enjoying their time. He looked at Angela’s smiling face. He regretted it till date the way he treated her when they were newly married. It’s all fresh in his memories.
He lied down and closed his eyes thinking how it would have been if he got to know her before their marriage. Probably, he must have felt in love with her in the first sight if that would ever have happened. Angela was his wife now and he is in love with her.
He couldn’t ask for anything more to god. But still, it always came into his mind. How it would have been if he got to know her in some other circumstances?
It was like a wish if he could go back in time he would have never let the old Xavier do all that to her.
He closed his eyes for some minutes, but didn’t really realise when he fell into a deep slumber. The waves of the sea like a lullaby to his ear and cold breeze making it impossible not to get a good nap. Almost immediately his body gave out and he slept soundly.
“I said give me that fucking keys” I snapped at my driver who wasn’t giving me my keys of the car.
“But sir, Mr. Brad had clearly ordered us not to let you out of the house until he comes back,” he said and all I wanted was to punch him right on his face.
“Keys!” I demanded.
I asked with a warning low tone and he gulped before handing me the keys.
“And you are fired! Get lost!” I roared as I opened the car’s door and got in.
“W-What.. but sir..” he came near my car windshield and looked at me begging me with his eyes not to do that to him.
I rolled my eyes at him. I didn’t really care. I am Xavier Knights after all. The city’s most eligible bachelor and the only heir of my dad’s oil business.
“Get lost!” I snapped my fingers at him and showed him the exit gate.
How dare he to tell me no to do what I wanted?
I ignited the engine and drove out of the mansion towards the driveway. These days are really frustrating for me. My dad has been nagging me to get married and settle down.
Why should I?
No! Why should I?
I don’t mind staying single forever. I already have the charm and looks.
Women love me for my looks and wealth. I can get any woman I want. So why should I even settle down? I made a mistake once of being in a relationship beforehand. I ended up badly, broken and devastated. I don’t really have any plans of getting back to that state.
I scoffed seeing the caller ID of my phone. “Give up already dad!” I muttered rolling my eyes. As soon as the call stopped I picked up the phone and called my best friend Dominic.
“Hey Xavi!” he chirped.
“Shut up! What the fuck is Xavi? Its Xavier!” I said to him.
“Aww. Okay tell me what is it? You never really call me for any chit chatting. So? What can I do for you?” he got straight to the point for which I smirked in appreciation. That’s my friend. He knows me very well. “I need a favour” I said and parked my car.
I parked my car at the side of the road beside a store named The Blossoms' probably some flower shop may be. I ignored it and concentrated on my phone call. I could see the weather changing into a dark one with the clouds gathering up and some distant voice of thunder.
“Yeah?” he asked.“I want some days alone. Let me have your private Island in the north for a vacation” I told him as I looked out of the windshield when it started drizzling.“Why are you even asking?I will get my jet ready for you. Text me the date and time.
“Yeah! Thanks man!” I said and he laughed. “No problem” he said and we hung up. I badly needed this vacation. Maybe dad would forget about me settling down if I stay away from his eyesight for some days, the vacation will surely help me in that.I smiled at it.
I was just going to ignite the car’s engine when it began to rain heavily following with thundering and lightning. “Great!” I muttered. From my windshield I saw a woman’s silhouette running wearing a white dress running into that shop.I couldn’t really see.
A loud thundering was heard which made me jerk in my seat a little.
“Damn! I need to get out”I muttered and thought about getting inside that shop for shelter.I couldn’t really stay inside the car in this bad weather for much longer.So I counted to three and ran out of the car towards the shop getting soaked in my way. I pushed pass the glass door and got inside the shop completely drenched. “Ah man!” I tried to wipe the rain water out of my face. “I hate rain!” I said and shook my head.
“Hi!” I heard a woman.
I looked up towards the counter to find a brunette looking at me with a smile on her face. “Ah the rain!” I said pointing my finger towards the door.“Oh! It’s okay” she smiled and got back into her work.I bit down my lips. Might I buy some flowers for shelter.
“Um where are the orchids?“I asked the woman and she looked up smiling at me.
“That way” she pointed her finger and I nodded before walking inside even more towards the shelves. Meanwhile, I took my handkerchief out of my pocket and wiped the water from my skin.
As I made my way there, I stopped in my track seeing a woman standing with her back facing towards me. She was wearing a white knee length dress and she was completely drenched. The woman was finger brushing her wet hair.
“So she was the one I saw” I thought.
I shook my head and went towards the shelf where the woman from before told me. I got the orchids and took some of it out of there smirking at them. “Might I give them to Nicole or Jenna,” I smirked at the thought. I turned around holding them but stopped when my sight fell on that white dress woman. She turned towards me and for the first time ever I felt as if my breath has been taken away from me.The woman threw her wet hair away from her face on her shoulder and shook her head.She had this small smile on her face while she took the flowers and kept them on the shelves. Her eyes blue, she was tall, slim and most importantly she had this aura. So peaceful and calm.“Who is she?“I thought. I couldn’t really avert my gaze from her. She had my whole attention. Pretty!
I didn’t really realise when I lost the grip from the flower and it fell down on the floor. Everything was like in a slow motion. All of a sudden I felt as if I’m in some kind of romantic movie with the violins playing next to me.
“Who is s-she?” I thought.
I bent down and picked the flowers up. My heart beats raised when I saw her again smiling at those flowers. Whatever I was feeling was really new to me. Foreign feelings. Unknowingly I took a step further towards her wanting to know her, see her from closer.
All of a sudden her blue eyes fell on me. “Can I help you?” the sweetest voice ever that I ever heard.
“Oh so she worked here,” I thought.
“Are you taking those? Sir?” she asked looking at the flowers in my hand. I couldn’t even stop my hands from raising up.
"For you!" I said. She gave me a look but took the flowers looking confused.
“You are bea-” I woke up when I felt water on my face.
“Xavier!” I saw Angela kneeling next to me on the sand. It was a dream?
"Xavier!" she said as she bent over and kissed me on my cheek.
“You are beautiful” I completed.
