Alexander stepped into the room, he looked at Erica who was chewing her nails. She was sitting on the couch. She stood up as she noticed Alexander entering the room. He wanted to go to her, wrap his arms around her and tell her that she's safe and she shouldn't be worried. But instead, he ignored her and stepped into the bathroom. She got confused with his behavior but she didn't push. She went to bed and laid down. Alexander on the other side, was now insecure again. He already had enough with the people running away from him, leaving him. He couldn't take that anymore. He was already so broken. He stood in the hot shower and punched the wall hard. His knuckles started bleeding but he didn't care. Hot water flowed all over his body and tears started flowing through his blue eyes. "Why God, why me? Because I had the courage to speak the truth. I never thought I would be punished for telling the truth. Please God, no more please…" he begged.
He wrapped a towel around his waist and stepped out of the bathroom. Ignoring her again, he walked into the closet and wore his comfy PJs. He turned around and found her standing at the door. "Alex, what's wrong?" She asked worriedly.
"Nothing." He rudely replied and left her alone standing in the closet. But she was stubborn, she followed him behind. He went to the kitchen and took out the spaghetti from the fridge. He put it in the microwave and heated it up. She also came into the kitchen but didn't say a word. He filled his plate and left her alone in the kitchen. She also took the plate, filled it and went to the dining hall. He didn't even look at her and kept eating.
She quietly sat beside him and started eating. He quickly finished his meal and went back to his room. "What's wrong with him?" She thought.
She also finished her dinner and went back to the room. Alexander was already in bed when she stepped into the bedroom. She went to the bathroom, did her night business, changed into her comfy nighty and stepped out of the bathroom. She crawled into bed and quietly laid down. "Good night Alex." She whispered and closed her eyes.
"Good night baby girl." He thought and closed his eyes as well.
Next morning he woke up, got ready and left the house. She opened her eyes and found herself alone in the room. She looked at the clock, "6 O'clock, he would be in the house." She thought.
She crawled out of the bed and stretched her arms above her head. She went to the bathroom and hopped into the shower. She washed her body and got out of the shower. Wrapping a towel on her tiny body, she went to the closet which was now filled with all the comfy casual clothes. She wore a tank top and skinny jeans. She didn't waste any time and ran downstairs. But she was all alone in that big house. She looked for him everywhere but he was nowhere to be found. Tears tickled in her eyes as she ran back to her room. She laid on the bed and started crying. She was so sensitive and his behavior hurt her so much. She didn't eat anything and kept crying.
"Hi sexy, I thought I wouldn't be able to see you today." Megan said while wrapping her arms around Alexander's neck.
"Hi Megan, I thought you were done following me." Alexander said.
"Oh come on baby, you're the hottest guy in this University and I'm the hottest lady. We both are perfect for each other." Megan said in a seductive voice.
"I don't think so Megan, I'm not interested in you. Please stop following me." Alexander replied.
"Everything was fine Saturday night, what happened to you now?" Megan asked.
"I was drunk that night, now I'm sober. So you better keep your distance." He said and left.
"Really man, even I thought you guys are making progress on Saturday night." Ken said to his best friend.
"I told you so many times not to jump to conclusions. Megan and I will never be together." Alexander replied.
"Why not? She's hot, she's beautiful, she's smart and she is wealthy like you." Ken reasoned.
"Even with all these super features of her, I'm not interested in her. She can be a good seductrice. She will be a great girlfriend, but not my type of partner. So I'm gonna pass." Alexander explained.
"Then what is your type?" Ken asked.
"Stop annoying me. It's Monday and I'm already in a bad mood." Alexander said angrily.
"Okay, okay fine man. Let's go into the class." Ken said. Ken Yang and Alexander are not just best friends but also childhood friends. They were in diapers when they became friends. Ken was like a twin brother to Alexander. Alexander always looked after Ken. They both grew up together, played together, became friends with each other.
Ken and Alexander were sitting in the cafeteria and we're waiting for their lunch. "Now what your mom did?" Ken asked.
"She set me up with a girl." Alexander spilled the truth.
"She did what?" Ken yelled and everyone turned to look at him. "Sorry guys." He apologized. "When did this happen?" He added.
"Friday night, when I reached home. She was waiting for me and gave me this heart attack." Alexander said.
"She really can't see you at peace, can she?" Ken asked and Alexander shook his head.
"No she can't." Alexander replied.
"So what did you do? I mean I know you can reject the girl, right?" Ken asked.
"She played it well, man. She brought in an eighteen years old girl. She is so innocent and so fragile. If I would have rejected her, she would be in the slave house, and I didn't have the courage to do that to an innocent soul." Alexander replied.
"Man, don't tell me she's your fiance now?" Ken asked.
"She is." Alexander replied.
" So she is your type of partner or not?" Ken asked with a smirk.
"I don't know man. I have only spent 2 days with her. She is scared of me all the time, I don't know why. Plus, I can't just jump on a girl to start a relationship." Alexander explained.
"True. I really thought your mother would never do that to a girl. The way she always hated this thing that your grandmother did to her. But I guess I was wrong." Ken said.
"Tell me about it. You should have seen her. She was begging me to keep her because she knew what they do to girls in the slave house." Alexander replied.
"What's her name by the way?" Ken asked.
"Erica." Alexander replied with a wide smile. Suddenly Alexander's phone started ringing and he fished it out his pocket. He looked at the caller ID, it was Mr Wilson, his family lawyer.
"Hello Mr Wilson. How are you?" Alexander asked.
"I'm fine Mr Walker, how are you?" Mr Wilson asked back.
"I'm good. What's up?" Alexander asked.
"Can we meet today? I have some important things to discuss with you and you better come in your University timing. I don't want anyone to know about our meeting." Mr Wilson said.
"Okay I'll be there in 40 minutes Mr Wilson." Alexander replied.
"Okay then, see you." Mr Wilson said and cut the call. Alexander looked at his friend with a guilty smile.
"It's okay man, I can understand. You go and I'll take care of it all." Ken said.
"Thanks man. Bye." Alexander said and ran towards the parking lot. He hopped into his car and quickly drove off.
