“Listen Andrew, I am not going anywhere with you and Dad so you better leave me alone ”
“You are paying her a visit on her remembrance day ceremony but I have always payed her visit every day because her death pained me more than it does to you. You all are murderers!! You killed my mom and you’ll pay for it ” I heard Xander yell over the phone making me open my eyes.
What’s going on?
“Oh my God did I sleep here? ” I mutter standing up from the bed.
“Why didn’t you take me home? ”
“You were asleep… ”
“You slept here with me? ” I cut him off.
“Yes, not on the same bed… I used the couch. ”
“Oh.. Thanks, I heard you shouting at someone is everything okay? ” I ask.
His expression changed at my question.
“My mom died today.”he mutters sadly.
“I’m so sorry….” I was so quick to pull into a hug before I could think.
He hugs me tightly and I swear I felt something wet drop on my back.
Oh God he’s crying.
“Do you want to see her? I can go with you ” I say recalling the conversation I heard earlier.
“I don’t want to. ”
“Who were you… ”
“My brother “he interrupt. “He wants me to go with him and Dad as a family to pay respect to my mother. And the truth is they were never my family and they never respected my mother either. Not that beast that calls himself my father, who beats my mother to death. He sent her to early grave and my stupid Step brother who doesn’t even care about me or my mom when she was alive. But now after they killed her, they killed the only person I have on earth they pretend to care. ”
“I’m sorry all this happened to you. Please stop crying I’m here for you ”
I can’t believe Xander cried and poured out his heart to me. A whole BADBOY XANDER to me, one of the least girls in campus. This made my heart warm.
“Are you sure you don’t want to visit her? ”
“I’m positive, I don’t want to go anywhere. I just want to stay here with you. I got you new clothes and underwears and other things you might need. You just have to go to the bathroom and take your bath. Please Aria don’t say no ” he begs giving me a puppy looks. My cheeks turn red and I couldn’t stop myself from grinning.
“Aww you look cute ” I say dragging his left cheek with my fingers.
He groans “Go, you stink “he says and I frown.
“I mean you Stinkingly smell good ”
He smiles, making me also mirror his smile.
When I was done bathing I realize Xander has made breakfast.
“This is not really my favorite but I’ll eat it ” I say sitting down on one of the chairs in the small dinning room.
“Oh I’m sorry I should have ask “he apologize.
“No it’s fine Alex, sandwich is nice ” I wave it off taking a bite from the sandwich.
“Don’t call me Alex ” he says.
“Huh? Why? ”
“It reminds me of mom, she calls me Alex or Alexander that’s why I changed my name to Xander ”
“Oh… Sorry ”
“But don’t worry girlfriend, you can call me anything you want. Even pet names oh I love pet names ”
I smile. “So what pet name do you want? Baby? sweetie? Sugar? Or oh Honey bunny? ”
“Honey bunny, honey bunny, I like that ” he points.
A noise came from the other side of the house and I turn to look only to see two guys clad in only boxer briefs running after each other and shouting.
My cheeks flushed, Xander’s roommates.
Xander stood up immediately running over to them, then said which make them look over to my way. One of them waves at me, with I returned and brought down my hand in nanosecond, I wasn’t even sure he saw me wave back. They both went back in.
Few minutes later when we are almost done with breakfast, they came back to join us dressed up this time.
I spend time with Xander till evening I left for my dorm. It was so much fun and I enjoyed every bit of it. I’ve always thought Xander is a grumpy type, but he proved me wrong. He’s down to earth.
And I couldn’t forget I saw hard drugs in bathroom this morning. I know he’s dangerous and has something he’s keeping. I hope one day he’ll open up to me about it or I’ll find out myself.
