4. Chapter Four
RECAP: "Sooo tell me, who did you pick?" She said spinning in the chair
Xavier's Point of View
"Why me? I'm not even a choice." Druid asked
"Because you are amazing, it was like you took center stage. You belong in front of the camera. Not behind the scenes. Those two will never cut it. If we do this together there could be an Oscar waiting for you. I know you felt that connection."
"I'm not sure..." She said closing her eyes
My hand slithered to hers and I interlaced our fingers. Her eyes flashed open. She took a deep breath but didn’t look at me. I liked touching her like this. My hold was tight but not gripping. She could pull away if she wanted to, but she didn’t. She kept it.
I breathed a sigh of relief as I felt the faint pulse of her wrist against my hand. We sat together for a couple minutes, neither one of us speaking. Then she pulled away and opened the door.
"You two are dismissed. I'll have my secretary send other upcoming events to your agents. Madden Films has been turned in another direction." She announced before closing the door
"Is that a yes?"
When she turned around, she ran into my chest. I didn’t realize till now how much taller I was than her... shes at least 5'6 and I'm 6'2. I was going to step back when she grabbed my collar, and pulled me down to her lips.
Her sweet cool breath grazed my lips, and her face tilted to the left "That's a yes." I could feel my hard'on coming so I was a bit relieved when I heard the click of heels, and I broke the closeness.
"So boss who'd yah pick?" Rita asked
"It's a secret." I said touching my bottom lip, the touch of hers still lingered
"Okay then..." Rita replied confused "I'll be out here if you need me."
"Wait Rita, what time is it. I have to meet the Team for fucking lunch." Druid said
"3:13, boss." She said walking out the room
"Oh shit! I'm gonna be late!" I yelled pulling my hair
"For what?" Druid asked puzzled
"To pick up my siblings. Ugh and Ben has my car." I said pacing
"I'll take you, I'm on my way out anyways."
"Seriously?!" I exclaimed
"So tell me about your siblings." I said
"Mulan is 4 years old and Kit is 8 months old. Together they pretty much run me ragged."
"You take care of them all by yourself?" I asked turning into the school's parking lot.
“I’m all they got. I’ll be right back.” He opened the door and got out of the car
He shut the door then walked towards a little girl. She had on a blue and floral dress, she looked absolutely adorable. I watched him from my window, noting the muscles in his back. His shoulders were wide and broad, and his arms bulged. He bent down on one knee as the little ran in for a hug. He picked her up and spun her around, Mulan giggled showing her toothy smile.
I drove them back to their townhouse, and a old puerto rican women opened the door. She had her purse in hand and was slipping on her shoes. “I’ll see you tomorrow Senor Triad.”
“Have a good day, Consuela.” He waved as she drove off
“Mulan, go and play with your brother.” He said shooing her in the house.
I turned to look at him. He was staring at me, like that kind of stare when someone is looking through you. He started to lean towards me and I felt the propel of my body doing the same. I inclined my head to the left, shut my eyes; before I knew it the touch of soft lips set my nerves aflame. The kiss was cool and refreshing. He tasted like a sugar cookie. My hand moved to his back then toward his neck. I felt his large muscles shift every time he moved. My fingers moved into his hair and fisted the strands. But all good things must come to an end.
“Big brother, Kit crawled out of his playpen.” Mulan yelled from the window.
I pulled away from him, but I let my hand tighten around his as I pulled out a pen. “Call me, ok.”
He stared down at his hand smiled and leaned up and kissed my cheek. “You better pick up the phone to.”
I smirked and began to pull out the driveway. 'I'm not gonna lie. I wasn't expecting that. I'm breaking my own rules already.
