On Sunday, Alexander received an invitation for a meal. He called Sophia and asked if she wanted to join him, but the woman rejected him without hesitation.
He had no choice but to attend it alone, and Felix could tell his boss wasn’t in a great mood.
He glanced at Alexander and asked tentatively, “Did you get into a fight with Ms. Yarrow, Mr. Xenos?”
Alexander had wanted to scold him for being too talkative. However, upon deliberation, he asked, “Do you have a girlfriend, Mr. Lane?”
Felix, who had been single for thirty years, replied, “No…”
He could feel the malice directed at bachelors.
“Oh, you wouldn’t get it, then,” Alexander said.
Felix could feel his heart clench.
That day, Sophia had lunch with Katherine and Joshua. Joshua would be leaving the country next Tuesday, which just so happened to be his birthday, so the three of them decided to celebrate his birthday ahead of time with a meal.
It had been a long while since the three of them had shared a meal and conversed together. As Sophia had a few drinks, a replacement driver had to drive her back home after she called for one.
After his meal, Alexander had his driver take him to Sophia’s mansion.
He pressed the doorbell, but no one answered.
The driver, who didn’t dare to leave, asked, “How about you return to the car, Mr. Xenos?”
The weather was scorching hot at that moment.
He reckoned Alexander would feel hotter than usual because the latter had drunk a few glasses of white wine during lunch.
Alexander, however, wanted to wait for Sophia. He waved at the driver, who was being a nuisance to him, and said, “You can go back now.”
He didn’t want anyone else to get in the way of his romantic relationship.
The driver nodded. “All right, then, Mr. Xenos”
Sophia didn’t drive that day, so she returned in a taxi as well.
It wasn’t until the vehicle was parked in front of the mansion that she saw Alexander.
He looked at her through the window, making her heart leap.
She pushed open the door and got out of the vehicle. “Why are you here?”
“Because I want to meet you.”
Alexander’s straightforward answer made Sophia blush a little. When she got closer to him, she saw there was a thin layer of sweat on his forehead.
Seeing him standing in front of her house, even when the sun was hanging high in the sky, made her heart feel warm. “How long have you been waiting for me?”
“Not long. It’s only been half an hour.”
Sophia couldn’t believe it. “Half an hour?”
After unlocking the door, she led him to the second floor.
She changed her slippers, poured two cups of water, and put one in front of him. “You haven’t answered my question.”
“More or less.”
Sitting on the couch, Alexander lowered his head and emptied half the cup.
A faint smile formed on Sophia’s face as she stared at him. “You’re so silly.”
Alexander chuckled as he raised his head and met her beautiful eyes. He could feel his heart burning, which he blamed on the white wine he had had during lunch.
He swallowed a lump in his throat and said, “You waited for me before too, Sophia.”
Back then, she had waited for him far longer than half an hour.
Taken aback, Sophia placed her cup down. “Have you been drinking?”
“Do you want a hangover remedy?”
Instead of answering her immediately, he gazed at her for a while before asking, “Can I hug you?”
Sophia looked into his eyes and nodded. “Okay.”
She walked up to him, and the man reached out to wrap her in his embrace.
The woman in his arms felt soft and had a nice smell. He wished he could stay in that position forever.
He closed his eyes and laid his head on her shoulder. “Have you been drinking too?”
“Red wine.” Sophia moved a bit and, when she saw his closed eyes, asked, “Do you want to take a nap?”
“I want to sleep while hugging you,” Alexander replied shamelessly.
He’s getting bolder! He can even say stuff like that with a straight face now.
Sophia tried pushing him away, wanting to leave his embrace, but she accidentally brushed against a certain spot.
Alexander’s eyes flew open. He lowered his head and stared at her lips. “I want to kiss you, Sophia.”
Then he kissed her, hugging her even more tightly.
His kiss was so passionate that Sophia’s breathing quickened.
Their breathing was getting heavier as the smell of red and white wine mixed with each other. Sophia felt she was getting a little drunk.
At that moment, Alexander was like a greedy child who couldn’t stop asking for more.
The atmosphere was getting more and more intense until the sound of a zip moving woke them up from their trance. When Alexander returned to his senses, he stopped what he was doing, pulled up the zip on Sophia’s skirt, and touched her face. “I’m sorry, Sophia.”
He didn’t do it on purpose. He simply wanted it too much.
Sophia stayed silent because she had been a little aroused too. However, compared to his actions, her behavior wasn’t worth mentioning.
The tactile sensation of his smooth and tight muscles under her hand did make her palm feel hot. For the first time, she found herself lusting over Alexander’s body.
It simply felt too pleasant to her touch.
When Sophia became more aware of her thoughts, her face grew even redder.
Thankfully, Alexander didn’t notice. They slowly calmed down.
After about a minute, he let go of her and kissed her forehead. “Nap?”
Instead of answering her, Alexander asked, “What do you want to do?”
Sophia arched a brow. “Can you watch a horror movie with me?”
“Sure.” Why does my girlfriend have such a weird hobby?
Sophia was an avid fan of horror movies, but she was too afraid of watching them alone. Her friends, such as Yvonne and Katherine, weren’t fans of horror movies, so the hundreds of horror movies in her collection remained mostly untouched. She had only watched around ten of them so far.
Now that Alexander was willing to watch a horror movie with her, she felt pretty great, much like when her parents had bought her a doll she had wanted for a long time when she was a kid.
“I’ll prepare some fruits.”
From the side, he watched as Sophia cut some fruits at the dining table. She seemed happy.
When the sunlight shone on her, it made her smile look brighter.
Alexander’s lips quirked up.
It was just that easy to make him feel content.
After preparing plenty of fruits and snacks, Sophia led Alexander to the home theater in the lower basement. It had been a while since she had visited the home theater. She had only used it three to four times after the renovation.
When she first married into the Xenos family, she saw that the Xenos residence had a very large entertainment room installed with complete audio and video equipment. She was very happy at that time, thinking she could watch movies with Alexander there during the weekends.
Yet, the reality was cruel.
Nevertheless, her initial idea back then came true at that moment.
Although they were in her mansion and not the Xenos residence, that wasn’t an essential distinction to her since what mattered was that Alexander would be watching a movie with her.
Just thinking about it made her feel blissful.
Fearing that Alexander wouldn’t be able to bear watching gore, Sophia picked a less intimidating horror movie. “Is this okay?”
“Pick whatever you like.”
“I like this one too.”
Alexander nodded and pulled her into his embrace.
Sophia was focused on the movie. She didn’t like to talk while watching a movie, especially a horror movie.
By the time she realized the man had fallen asleep, the movie had already ended.
She was pretty excited and wanted to ask Alexander about his thoughts on the movie. But when she turned back, she saw that he was already asleep.
Looking at Alexander, who had his eyes closed, Sophia couldn’t help but touch his handsome face. I must say, if the person who rescued me back then was a little uglier, I don’t think I would’ve fallen for him. Just thinking about having such an attractive man as my boyfriend makes me pretty happy.
