Chapter 5

Alexia's POV.

I was still in shock. I mean what the hell just happened here. Nathaniel just called himself my boyfriend and that right in front of Liam and the funniest part of all this was that I didn't deny it.

I will blame my lack of denial on shock. I mean everything happened so fast and that I didn't even realize what was happening.

Hell, I was still having a hard time understanding what happened.

"Care to explain what just happened here, Alexia?" Liam asked. I could practically see the smoke coming out of his head.

I tried to open my mouth to speak but my mouth was suddenly too heavy to move. How do I explain to the love of my life that I was only in this ruse with Nathaniel because of him?

"Uhhmm...Liam...well... I don't know where to start from." I finally managed to speak.

"How did you guys meet?" He asked.

Oh no...this is bad. Everything happened so fast that I and Nathaniel didn't even think of a back up story.

"We uhh...we met online." I blurted.

"Online? Since when? For how long? How come you didn't tell me anything about it?" He asked.

This is getting a little bit overwhelming, I thought as I unconsciously fanned myself with my hand. I definitely wasn't thinking when I agreed to Nathaniel's plan. How on earth do I answer all his questions now?

"Can we go inside and talk? Please?" I asked and he only nodded in reply and started heading for the door. I headed for the kitchen and poured myself a glass of water before taking my seat on the kitchen counter while Liam leaned against the cooker directly facing me.

"We started talking about three months ago on F******k and he seemed cool so..." I trailed off.

"Why didn't you tell me about it?" He asked looking extremely hurt. I started feeling bad immediately but this isn't the time to feel bad.

"There was never a chance to tell you. We were either talking about you and the new girl you hooked up with or you are always busy going on and on about the latest party so..." I replied and his face fell a bit. I wasn't lying though. Whenever we got together it was always about this new hot girl or this party that people are talking about on I*******m and shit like that.

"I am so sorry. I didn't even realize...I am the shittiest best friend ever." He said. There was so much sadness in his voice that it tugged at my heartstring and the guilt increased in multiple folds.

"It is fine. I never complained." I said and shrugged.

"I will make it up to you somehow. How about this...a double date? You get to meet Akeira and I will get to know your boyfriend better and we will use that medium to get together." He said his face suddenly lit up with excitement and genuine happiness.

The mention of his new girlfriend, Akeira, made my mood drop to the bottom. I tried to school my expression so it won't be too obvious about how much the mention of his girlfriend made my mood drop.

"Ughh... I am not sure about that. I mean, Nathaniel might be too busy." I tried coming up with an excuse.

"He won't be busy. I will ask him myself. He lives next door right? Wait a minute, is this why you picked this apartment? Because your boyfriend lives next door and you want to be getting some every night." He said raising his brows suggestively.

I couldn't even answer him, I was too embarrassed to speak up and I could feel the heat rising from my neck to my face.

"Look how red you have gotten. I must have gotten it right. There is no point being embarrassed, Alexia. It is about time you started getting some action." He said his voice laced with amusement.

"Please Liam, just stop saying that." I whispered.

"Saying what? That you chose this apartment to be getting some actions regularly?" He teased.

I sent him the stink eyes and jumped off the kitchen counter.

"You are just jealous that you won't be 'getting some action regularly'" I said air quoting the getting some action.

He stared at me for a while, his eyes widely opened "Who are you and what have you done with my best friend?" He asked.

I chuckled and playfully smacked his back.

"Stop fooling around and get going. I have a deadline to catch up with. I will see you later and let you know if Nathaniel will be free." I said walking out of the kitchen with Liam following behind me.

"He will be free. I know he will. I will see you later babe." He said pecking me lightly on the cheek before leaving my apartment.

I dropped on the couch immediately the door locked behind him. What the hell have I gotten myself into? How do I keep up this ruse that I started? Now that Liam thinks I have a is only a matter of time before he tells his mum about it and the his mum would ask my mum and then... No fucking way, that can't happen.

I picked up my phone and sent a quick text to Liam asking him not to say anything about Nathaniel to his mum. I let out a sigh of relief when he replied with a "Got it babe".

Now I just have to think of a way to get out of the double date shit. There is no way I will be going on a double date with Liam. I don't think my heart is will be able to take seeing him close to another girl. I mean I always had to watch him with different girls from time to time but this case is just different. I will have to sit on the same table with them. I have to watch them order for each other and exchange those 'I am so in love with you smile every five minutes' and let us not forget about the PDA. I just don't think my poor heart will be able to take all of that.

I just have to get Nathaniel to say no to the double date. That shouldn't be too hard, I am pretty sure he will be too busy with work and he won't want to waste his time on some silly double date.

That was my thought as I walked to my room and picked up my laptop to work.
