Before she could finish her words, Sophia’s eyes widened as she glanced at him and slowly raised her brows. “Shouldn’t you be in a meeting, Mr. Xenos?”
Alexander eyed her, raised his hand to push the door gently, and walked in.
He never knew how it felt to miss someone back then, but now he did. After being on a three-day business trip, he returned in a hurry yesterday, but Sophia was not in Jadeborough. He had waited until today for her return and was absent-minded during the meeting earlier. Once it was over, he immediately drove over to see her.
His gaze was like a fire warming Sophia’s cheeks as he looked at her.
Turning around, she headed upstairs and rinsed Alexander’s glass before pouring him some water. “Don’t you have a business lunch at noon?”
“I’ve asked Mr. Lane to reschedule it.”
She didn’t expect that Alexander would cancel the appointment that could only be scheduled that day due to his three-day business trip.
“I see,” Sophia acknowledged his words and took a sip of the lukewarm water with her head hung low.
At once, the mansion sunk into silence. After remaining quiet for a short while, Alexander suddenly beckoned to Sophia. “Come here, Sophia.”
She raised her head to glance at him before putting the glass down and walking over to him.
The moment she strode up to him, Alexander pulled her into his arms. A soothing feeling flooded his body when he caught a whiff of her familiar scent.
“Did you miss me?”
Looking at him, Sophia giggled. “No.”
The truth was, she did miss him a little, but she refused to tell him so that he wouldn’t feel smug.
Undoubtedly, Alexander didn’t believe her words and knew right away that she was lying at the sight of the lifted corners of her eyes as she smirked like a cunning fox.
He might have taken her words seriously if it weren’t for the smugness in her eyes.
His gaze darkened. “I missed you so much.”
Sophia could remain calm in any circumstance but not when Alexander was confessing to her so directly. After all, she was relatively inexperienced when it came to romance.
Warmth flooded her cheeks, and she lowered her head to avoid his eyes.
As Alexander stared at her flushed ears, his Adam’s apple bobbed faintly, and he extended his hand to lift her chin. “It’s been so long since I last kissed you, Sophia.”
After saying that, he lowered his head to plant a kiss on her lips, parting her teeth apart with the warm tip of his tongue. Sophia felt his grip on her waist slightly tightening and her whole body almost sprawling on his chest.
His steamy kiss made her feel dizzy like she had just stepped out of a hot spring. Their voices scattered gradually while the sounds of their breathing overlapped. Entangled in his arms with her body close to his well-built chest, she could feel the coldness from his belt buckle and the hard bulge pressing against her thighs.
Only the sound of their faint panting filled the silent mansion as a gust of the warm afternoon wind blew, spicing up the steamy atmosphere.
Sophia felt as if he was about to swallow her whole. After the long kiss, she almost couldn’t catch her breath and felt dizzy. Alexander finally pulled away from her lips when she thought she was so close to drowning in the overwhelming kiss.
However, his hands were still on her, holding her waist tightly.
His eyes darkened slightly as he glanced at her. “I thought you didn’t miss me.”
Sophia shot him a glare, but her bright eyes had an overwhelming allure. There was no way he could ignore her with that stare of hers.
Shifting his eyes, he leaned on the couch, let out a deep chuckle, and slowly loosened his necktie with one hand while the other was still wrapped around her waist.
As he pressed his slender fingers on his necktie, his alluring Adam’s apple appeared and disappeared from her sight intermittently.
Sophia felt her cheeks burning and gently tried to push him away, but he didn’t budge.
After loosening his necktie, Alexander lifted his hand to hold the back of her head and pulled her into his embrace. “Let me hold you longer.”
Leaning on his shoulders, Sophia shifted her eyes, and her gaze landed on his protruded Adam’s apple.
At the sight, her fingers twitched slightly. Watching his throat bobbing, she had the urge to touch it.
However, she held herself back when she felt the hardness pressing against her thighs.
At that moment, Alexander’s phone rang.
Raising her brows, Sophia raised her head to look at him. “Alexander, your phone is ringing.”
Although Alexander heard the ringing phone, he didn’t intend to answer it.
Without even looking at the caller ID, he knew Felix was calling to remind him about his lunch appointment at Golden Sun that day.
However, the phone kept ringing and was ruining the mood.
In the end, Alexander picked up the call with a darkened expression. “I’ll be there in half an hour.”
After saying that, he hung up immediately.
On the other end of the call, Felix felt a chill in his heart as he wondered whether he had called at the wrong time.
However, it was already noon, and the business lunch was half an hour later. If Alexander did not show up, it would only make things difficult for Felix.
When Sophia heard his words, she pushed him away and sat next to him. “Didn’t you say you have rescheduled the lunch appointment?”
Alexander stood up and suddenly extended his hand to pinch her earlobe. “Come with me,” he said as he held her hand.
Sophia snorted. “Did you forget what you promised me?”
Alexander headed out while holding her hand. After getting in the car, he explained, “I’ve asked Felix to book a private room next to mine. You can wait for me there.”
Sophia couldn’t help but laugh. “Wouldn’t Mr. Lane hate me?”
There are barely any private rooms in Golden Sun. Moreover, Alexander requested one next to the room for his business lunch.
She reckoned Alexander’s request would only give Felix a headache.
However, Alexander did not say a word and started driving to Golden Sun after she had buckled her seatbelt.
When the car stopped at a red light halfway, he tilted his head to look at her. “Aren’t you going to announce your relationship with the Dawson family to the public?”
Sophia had returned to Doveston two days ago, where she was photographed going shopping with Kylie. The ridiculous media companies then published the photos on the internet, claiming that Sophia deliberately took a flight to accompany her future mother-in-law. As such, the netizens were convinced that the rumors about Sophia marrying into a wealthy family again were true. Besides, as it could be seen from the photos that Kylie was treating Sophia kindly, the media reported that the latter had earned another chance at life because she met Lukas, who was more suitable for her, and a mother-in-law, who was way better than Kristen after her divorce with Alexander.
Although Alexander knew the media was spouting nonsense, he asked Felix to delete the photos immediately. Despite that, he still felt displeased when he saw the photos.
Although Lukas was Sophia’s cousin, Alexander couldn’t stand people saying she belonged to Lukas when she should be his instead.
Sophia glanced at him, raising her brows faintly. “I’ll announce it on Granddad’s birthday in August.”
Sophia couldn’t help but laugh. “How is that late? There’s not much to say anyway.”
After all, she was a down-to-earth person.
Alexander frowned while Sophia pointed to the front. “The light has turned green, Mr. Xenos.”
After glancing at her, he had no choice but to let the matter go.
After fifteen minutes, the car came to a halt.
Sophia lifted her hand to tug at Alexander’s sleeve as she pointed at his collar and necktie.
It turned out that when Alexander loosened his necktie back at the mansion earlier, two buttons on the collar came undone.
Although he somehow appeared dreamy with such a disheveled look, she knew he had to uphold his image because he was having a business meal. Since he always had a kempt appearance, such a shabby look might shock everyone.
Lowering his head, Alexander looked at his shirt collar before extending his arm to grab Sophia’s hand. “Help me button them up.”
After saying that, he loosened his grip and stared at her with darkened eyes.
Sophia snorted. “What if I don’t?”
“Then I shall go in looking like this.”
Raising her brows, Sophia let go of his hand. “Sure.”
It’s not me who will be embarrassed anyway.
After looking at her for a while, Alexander opened the door and was about to get out of the car when Sophia let out an angry snort.
“Come back here!”
I can’t believe he is so shameless!
As the chances of running into someone she knew in Golden Sun were high, she didn’t let Alexander hold her hand when she got out of the car.
The waiter at the entrance was the same as before, and the man was taken aback when he saw Sophia and Alexander arrive together. “Hello, Mr. Xenos and Ms. Yarrow.”
Sophia flashed an ambiguous smile at the waiter, who lowered his head in uneasiness.
Alexander hated it when Sophia looked at other guys. “Do you two know each other?”
Retracting her gaze, Sophia chuckled. “No.”
He shot the waiter another glance and memorized his looks, planning to ask Felix to run a background check on him.
