"Xavier___" she paused and then he heard her laughter ring so loud, like music to his ears making him realize yet again it was one of the things he missed about her.
"I know you are in the spur of the moment and my kidnap was a lot for you to handle but don't start saying things you don't mean, okay? I just might have the wrong idea," she shook her head amused, and then peered down at the basket of fruits he was holding while staring at her in shock.
"Is that for me?" She asked, her eyes narrowing at his transfixed expression.
"Yes," he muttered without thinking.
"Then hand it over, I decided to talk to you first so I can get you off the hook," she shook her head in disbelief, "How sweet of you to wait till I wake up before you go home. But your bloody T-shirt is making me dizzy and I know how busy of a man you are so just head back to work, aye?"
"Maya I was serious__"
Even the infamous Xavier is scared of losing somethingMaya squinted her eyes, trying to see the person who had just entered her room and consequently had woken her up. "Maya," he whispered breathlessly. Her eyes flew open, "Tyler." Since that night at Xavier's house, Maya could tell that there was a strain in the almost budding friendship she was beginning to sense was about to blossom between her and the latter. She had understood his reasons for staying away. He had even expressed his like for her to start with because she had expressly notified him of how much she disliked him. So more than just proving that she and Xavier was a thing, she was aware she had managed to somehow betray Tyler. Make him realize they weren't allies.Something had happened between him and Xavier that had made the air between them edgy, their rancor existent, the bitterness, the suppressed a
Two weeks later"When are you resuming work? I have missed you at work." Xavier muttered. They had just finished seeing a movie and their gazes were still on the rolling credit when he had asked the one question Maya dreads. He had refused her leaving his house until she was completely fine and now, she was more than fine she wasn't sure she wanted to leave his side. But the decision she had made after long thoughts and careful thinking will make walking away from his house and she hoped, as soon as they could break the news that they broke up to the public space, his life too, easier. "I know I did say, you could take all the time you needed but it seems like you are bored to death here all by yourself besides you have fully recuperated." Maya took a long sip of the wine beside her bracing herself for one of the most difficult conversations she just might skip if that option w
Maya crumpled her disposable Expresso cup, tossing it into the trash can. She blew out a sigh and rubbed her face with her hand wondering why she just had to get into a fight with Xavier about this? Why couldn't he understand her for a change? See this from her perspective? Sighing again, she switched her phone on, her hand hovering on the call icon beside the moving company she had contacted a day before, not knowing if it was right to cancel their former agreement and just ask for her things to leave Xavier's house this night. She didn't want to go back to him. If she did, she knew he'll try to convince her why taking a job in Tyler's company was a bad idea and she'll disagree, then it'll be the vicious argument once again. She was happy they were finally having an understanding, must they fight over everything all the damn time? And what was this hatred he had for Tyler that was so overwhelming an
Maya squinted her eyes just to be sure it was still the penthouse she had left a month ago. Grey couch had replaced pink glittery love settees and on the wall, the silly framy heart wallpaper has been replaced with a less "pinkish" one. She had let herself inside the house with spare keys she still had in her possession though, from the sounds coming from the kitchen, someone was in. What had happened and what the fuck was going on? "Maya!" Jessica came out of the kitchen looking at her bewildered. "You are here? You should have told me you are coming around to visit." She gave her a little uneasy smile, not knowing if she should just tell her that she will be coming back even though she had not given them any form of prior notice. But it wasn't like her room had been given to someone else and she needed to drop a notice for it to be vacat
Jasmine looked out of the window gasping, "Xavier is also here." Maya smiled sweetly, "It appears so," she muttered underneath her breath noting that she was cornered. Maya raised her brow at Skylar who appeared like she was told Christmas will be coming earlier. "Oh my God this is happening," she muttered underneath her breath while trying to comb her hair hastily with her fingers making Maya blink wondering what the fuss was about especially since she worked under him. Then she remembered that she only saw Xavier regularly because they worked in the same building and it was not the same case for the other workers especially since he had a private elevator and his own personal parking space. Most of the workers have never seen their boss except through tabloids and the television. He looked breathless even as he busted into the room, his eyes finding Maya almost i
Maya exhaled even as she smiled, leaning on Xavier's body trying so desperately to sell the picture of two people passionately in love. After humoring Ashley with her little video, they had discussed for a while with the trio acting like they had actually come to visit and when Xavier had suggested it was late and they should probably get going, she didn't know why but she had felt relieved. Now, she just had to swallow her pride and stay under his roof until she gets a place of her own because some hours ago she just discovered she was officially homeless. "Are you alright?" Xavier whispered, his eyes at his side of the window as he ended the silence they have sunk into throughout their ride back. "I don't even know anymore," she mumbled truthfully, closing her eyes feeling so tired, "I don't know," He glanced at her, "You know you could have just told them you wanted to move back."<
Maya smiled at Xavier as he opened the door for her to enter the car. It was her first day at work and she would be a big liar if she said she wasn't excited about finally going back to the workforce and real life. Xavier had insisted on dropping her at work before heading to his, something she regarded as him trying to assure her he fully consented to her working with Tyler. The morning was off to a beautiful start and though they had started off a routine like they were a couple which bothered her, she couldn't say she didn't enjoy him waking her up because she had overslept a bit. Then they had both been in their respective rooms showering and following through with their morning routine. She had made breakfast without thought, falling back into the pattern of cooking since she was the one who did all the cooking for the girls. They had eaten in companiona
"Have you sent the review of the Beta gamers to Mr. Salvador?" Maya asked Jessica, even as she typed into the computer referring to Tyler. "Not yet." She whispered uneasily, "I'll do that later today along with the report of the engineers once they are done testing the design of the app." Maya nodded, her eyes still fixated on the computer screen. Playit was launching a dating app soon and it had been taking a chunk of her time, as everyone had been on deck to make sure this particular job was just as perfect as the others. She smiled at Jessica, not even blaming her for slacking a bit, even as she told her she could leave now. The landline in her office rang, she picked up the call, her eyes still on her screen. "Maya," She smiled, "How are you doing?" "Fine but I don't know about you. I didn't know when you came
