When Alex dropped her off, Talia couldn't wait to get inside her apartment. Her heart felt like it had been torn to shreds. Alex had been so nonchalant as if nothing had happened.
She walked into the bathroom and stared at herself in the mirror. She twisted and turned her body looking for a flaw to justify the rejection from Alex but found none. She slumped to the bathroom floor and cried. She wailed like a baby whose mother had not been home for days. When she shed every tear she had accumulated, but not really, she just got tired from crying; She took a warm bath.
It was truly heart-wrenching. After a long and warm bath, she replayed the conversation they had. She jumped out of bed when she remembered he mentioned something about him just obsessing over a little thing which happened to be work-related.
She repeated what he said and smiled, "No, I'm obsessing over a Little Thing right now."
"So, I shouldn't give up just yet. He's only busy. I should try again when he's done obsessing over that little thing." She giggled and fell back into the white bedsheets and attempted to make a snow angel. She went to bed with a peaceful heart as if the rejection earlier had been an illusion.
Talia had no idea what he had meant when he said little thing but soon she will get to find out she had misunderstood him.
As soon as Alex's front door shut behind him. He loosened his tie. He walked up to his study and sat on the chair behind the mahogany red desk. He sighed as he thought back to Talia's confession. Deep down he didn't understand why Talia had fallen for him. He had looked after her like a big brother upon the request of his grandfather and had never once been attracted to her in that way. He still thought of her as a younger sister.
Plus, he happened to be in love with someone now. Even though she had been avoiding him for the past two days. He admits that does deserve it. He had been too impetuous with his actions that day.
Alex closed his and massaged the bridge of his nose as his thoughts drifted to Zunnie Bai. She had been neglecting him recently and he was miserable. At nights he had trouble sleeping because he missed her. He missed her body, her touch, her smile, he deeply missed all of her.
He had gone to her apartment yesterday, but she didn't let him in, saying he needed time to reflect on his rash actions. She refused his calls and did not reply to his messages.
Thinking back to the message he got from secretary Zhang on his way home, he hurriedly stood up from his chair and marched to Zunnie's door.
It must have been his lucky day because as soon as he pulled the door open she stepped out of the elevator with her friend Sanua. She had not seen him when she stepped out because she was attentively listening to what her friend was saying.
"Zunnie…" Alex called to her and she turned to look his way.
"Yes?" She answered in a questioning voice as if she had no idea who he was.
Alex clenched his teeth but quickly sighed walked up to her and said, "Can I speak to you for a bit?"
"I'm kind of busy right now, can we do this another time?"
"I promise it won't take long…" Alex was persistent. He had no idea when he would get a chance to speak to her again. He had to admit that she was really good at avoiding him. Seeing that God had given him this opportunity to run into her, he was happy.
He met her deep blue eyes and gave her a warm smile. He held back the urge to pick her up, carry her into his condo and sit her down so she could not escape. He was certain that is she was alone he would but seeing Sanua looking up at him he nervously cleared his throat and fought the urge.
"O-Okay…" she replied in almost a whisper.
"San you can go in, I'll be back in a bit. I'm okay." Sanua gave her a nod and walked in her condo.
They were alone now. Alex took three long strides toward her and pulled her into his arms. He hugged her firmly so that she had no way to escape if she tried to. He bent his head to her shoulders and inhaled her sweet succulent scent, then spoke into her ear in a muffled voice;
"I've missed you so much." He nibbled on her ear lobe and felt her body tensed up. He smiled, grabbed her wrist and guided her back into his apartment.
