Hellbound With You Chapter 143
After some time, the men were sitting inside the car as they waited.
Alex and Zeke were sitting in the backseat, with Zeke busy on his tablet, while Alex was lazily resting his face on his palm as he stared out the window.
Xavier was on the driver's seat, silently trying to communicate with Kai, who was sitting in the passenger's seat.
"Ahem" Xavier broke the silence. "That really was such a nice experience, right?" he grinned at Kai.
"It wasn't that bad. I finally realized that the behind the scenes of those plays aren't a joke. The audience don't have any idea that behind those curtains, everything is chaotic and filled with pressure," replied Kai seriously and an invisible sweat drops fell from Xavier's forehead. Hey! Why are you turning the conversation into something deep? I was just trying to make the two stone pillars behind us talk!
"Haha, yeah, you're right. But honestly, it was something I never ever imagined to ever experience." Xavier was glancing at the two at the back but his efforts didn't work. He felt like he had become a radio, just spouting out background music that no one really listened to.
Losing his patience, Xavier finally turned around and looked at the two behind him. "So? How was the experience for you two? Did you enjoy being props men?" he asked and Zeke's finger, which was swiping his tablet, halted. Alex also glanced at him for a while.
"Hm, indeed, it was a very interesting experience," was all Zeke replied and then he casually continued what he was doing.
'That's all you have to say?! Geez did you really understand what you just did? Huh? Ezekiel Reign?! You are a tycoon and a geez! What a boring guy!' Xavier ranted in his head before his attention moved to Alexander, the last creature on earth that he and everyone who knew him, would ever imagine doing those kinds of tasks.
"How about you, Alex? I bet, that was officially the most unforgettable experience in your life," Xavier grinned but that wasn't actually an exaggeration.
However, Alex didn't even seem to hear him. He seemed to be in his own thoughts, as if he was thinking about something so serious that it required his full attention.
As Xavier was about to repeat his question to Alex, the stone pillar suddenly spoke.
"Xavier have you ever dined with your girlfriend's family?" Alex suddenly said. Xavier was immediately choked at the bomb that Alex detonated out of nowhere, while Zeke and Kai's head snapped towards Alex.
Xavier: "Cough, cough, cough!"
Zeke and Kai: "!!!!!"
Trying to recover from the shock, Xavier cleared his throat and looked at Alex again, who seemed unbothered with all their reactions.
"W-what do you mean? I mean, where did that came from? Could it be that you're planning to "
"What I'm looking for is an answer, Xavier, not another question." Alex said firmly as he glared at Xavier and the man could only sigh.
"Well, my ex had invited me before to a dinner at their house but I never granted her request."
"Why you didn't go?"
"Er" The hell Alex, why are you asking this thing all of the sudden?! "Well, I just didn't want to go, I guess haha"
"Why didn't you want to?" Alex's eyes were looking intently at him. Darn! He now regretted pestering this dark dragon! Now, he felt like his life was in danger if he didn't answer!
"Because I think, the reason is because I was not ready to meet her family."
"What do you mean you weren't ready?"
"I mean" God! I wanna run away. T^T!! Leave me alone, Alex. I promise, I won't pester your peaceful moment again!
"Well, I mean it's because I wasn't really that serious in our relationship."
Alex's brows creased.
"Alex, did Abi invite you to meet her parents?"
"No, her grandmother invited me for dinner."
". . ."
OMG! You already met her parents?!!!
"So? Are you going?" Zeke was the one who asked.
Alex looked outside again, silent.
"If you don't want to, I could go in your place and apologize on your behalf," Zeke added and Xavier choked again while Kai's lips parted in disbelief.
Alex's dark aura immediately blazed as his deadly gaze dissected Zeke.
"Zeke are you really trying to rile me up?"
"I'm merely giving you an option to opt out of it, Alex," he calmly replied, unfazed.
"Ha!" Alex briefly laughed sarcastically before his gaze turned even sharper as he looked at Zeke.
But before he could say anything more, his phone vibrated.
Alex brought it out and when he saw that it was Abigail who was calling him, he opened the door, stepped out and slammed it close before he answered it.
"Alex, where are you?" the girl asked.
"Oh, wait for me for a little bit longer, okay? I'll be there in five minutes."
Upon the call ending, Alex leaned on the side of the car and his gaze fell towards the night sky.
Meanwhile, inside the car, the three men were silent.
Zeke casually returned his attention on the data that he was checking on his tablet, while Kai was looking at him through the rearview mirror.
"Zeke" Kai then spoke after a long while. "Why are you doing this? Could it be that you like Abigail?" he frankly asked, staring intently at the man's reflection on the mirror.
Zeke's lips slightly lifted and he calmly stared back at Kai.
"You think I like her?" he questioned and Kai sighed. He knew it wasn't going to be easy to get anything from this man.
"I don't know I just don't get why you're doing all this. I just hope you're not plotting something, Zeke."
Zeke's lips slightly curved up into a quick smile again, before he rested his face on his knuckles and looked at Alex, who was making his way to his own car, with an unfathomable expression on his face.
