My sight went hazy and I tried to stay on my foot. I take a step forward when I suddenly felt drawn back from behind.

My beating heart stops.

And for a moment time went by slowly as I turn to see who it was.

It was Lexa. For a second, disappointment washes through me. I stared at her as she speaks but I couldn hear anything… not till she snapped her finger at me.

”Yo! ” She squirms

I shake my head trying to regain my senses I look to where I had seen him. But he was no longer there. The crowd that had gathered had dispersed.

Where did he go? I wondered

I tilt my head and move from where I stood trying to spot him somewhere …anywhere.

”Hey… are you alright? ” Alexa asked me holding my arms.

I held her hand looking everywhere fervently.

”Him ”

”Who? ” She asked me.

I paused and did a mental check. I was pretty sure I had started sprouting gibberish. Not to mention, if I told her I just came across him. She might start trying to get to him before I do.

I turned to her now putting on m normal expression.

”What were you doing in the bathroom? ”

I asked her instead.

She chuckles and winked at me as she clasped her arms around my shoulder.

”You don want to know. ”

”If I don I wouldn ask, ” I tell her.

We discontinued walking and stopped at the counter. Alexa brings out a card from her purse and handed it over to the blonde with an uptight smile.

She flashed the card over something and handed it over to Alexa.

Alexa beckoned to me to follow her and I did.

”Is that all? ”

”What do you mean? ” she questioned me as she flips her shopping bag back and forth.

”You give her a card and you
e free to go? ”

She stopped walking and turns to me.

”Its a system here. And the card I gave to her is loaded with money. That was her collecting her part of the things I bought.

I mouthed an O even though I did not understand whatever thing she had said to me.

I stylishly look around… Hoping to spot him again but I didn .

How could he have gone far just a few seconds of me turning away? I wondered as we walked out of the building.

”Was he really the one I saw? ” I asked myself

Alexa opens the car for me and I got in she did it after putting her shopping items in the backseat.

”So what took you so long? ” I reinstated the question.

”Ahh! ” she groans.

She pulls out her fingers and showed them to me.

”What about them? ” I asked her.

”After seeing your boobs, I got horny. So I used these babies to… ” she zips down her pants and dips two fingers inside.

”Don . Do. That. ”

”What? I thought you were curious. These hands could do a lot of wonders youve never known. ”

”What? Masturbation? ”

She faked a gasp as she stared at me wide-eyed.

”Naive girl isn so naive after all. ”

I snorted instead of answering. Ive come across Amelia and the guards do it a couple of times. Well having actual sex. She does it even with the maids. But she was smart enough not to initiate such. Probably because she always looks at me as the dumb and ugly one.

I look away from Alexa and stared into the review mirror.

Was it him I had come across? This shouldn be happening soon, should it? I ask myself repeatedly.

I sink into the seat as the building began to roll away just like it did before we got here.

”Heard a celebrity stopped by. You should have come to call me… ”

”Why? ” I ask interrupting her

”Well… We need a lot of connections while we are on our mission don you agree? ”

”We? ” I asked her instead. ”If we are going to do this we need to start opening up to each other, Don you agree? ”

She scoffs and momentarily looks away from me to the window.

”Well, heres for being open. Im stopping to get gas ” and with that she hopped out of the car. I look around to see we were in a different place.

That was fast.

I stay seated and watched as she had a normal conversation with the attendant.

Something she knows how to do well with almost everyone we have come across… Like it was normal.

In a short time, she opens the door and got in. She made to put the key on the ignition to start the car, but she pause and turn to me.

”Ohh right and for the sake of being open, now we are heading back to the house. ”

I stayed mute till we were halfway from where we took off. I had insisted on not saying anything because apparently anything I do or say happens to offend her. The drive had been pretty quiet… Not till she suddenly hit the breaks and we came to a halt.

Looking at the surroundings I was pretty sure this was not the building I had spent the night. This place was strangely familiar.

Alexa comes down from the car and turns to open the door for me.

I came out my confused expression showing clearly.

”Why are we here? ” I questioned looking at the surroundings. I could tell evening was fast approaching from the pale look of the sky.

”Taking you back to where we came out from. ”

”What do you mean? ” I asked confused and startled. My gaze follows her as she moves back to enter the car.

”Hey you can leave me here! ” I almost cried

”Why can I? ”

”The queen sent you to come with me to be a companion. You can just dump me here. Im supposed to find him so we can get back remember? ”

”If this is what you think companionship is all about then we better retreat. Because Im looking like an escort… ”

”Isn that why you are with me? ” She scoffed and let out a chuckle.

”If Im accompanying you to serve as a **ing guard count me out! ” She screeched at me.

It took a moment before I realized it. She knew. She knew I saw him hence the attitude.

”Look I didn say anything because I wasn sure Im sorry! ” And it was the truth. Well plus the fact I think shes just trying to get rid of me and take the glory.

”Im sorry. ” I tried again. ”Ill tell you next time around. ”

”Im not trying to take away anything from you. Im only here for the fun. I can go close to the guy. Im magic! He can sense me! ”

She reasoned and I mentally face-palmed myself for forgetting that.

Of course!

”… Just the way I can sense something strange around us. Linda… Stay close! ”

I shudder and immediately rushed to stand behind her.

The trees rustled and the birds flew around as if indicating danger is coming.

”When I say run! Don **ing look back ” Alexa says and I felt my heartbeat escalate.
