Too Close to the Enemy

He thinks he's cool for breaking all those girl's hearts.

I won't be one of them

even if he's hard to resist...


21. Paella and Moving In?

Alexis' POV:

After getting squished by Luke and Michael in the back seats of Ashton's car for about 20 minutes, we finally arrived at "El Comedor". It was a fancy Spanish restaurant, but luckily, not very expensive. We got a table and scanned the menus for the best sounding dishes.

"Let's get some paella!" Ashton suggests, giggling after trying out his best Spanish accent.

"Ash, its pa-e-ya, the two l's make a "y" sound." Calum moans.

"I think Calum should choose and order our food, seeing he's inherited the most Spanish genes." I joked. Everyone laughed as Calum nodded.

"Alright then. We'll get a medium sized paella dish and churros con chocolate for dessert. How's that?" He replies.

"Impressive." Luke says sarcastically. Calum raises his eyebrow sarcastically before Luke crosses his arms in a "fight me" way. I laugh at the both of them.

"You guys man." I say.


After waiting half an hour for our food to arrive, it ARRIVED. I was so hungry. The restaurant had a low number of plates so Luke and I had to share one, I was fine with it because Luke kept on feeding me and I felt so loved. After finishing the whole plate of paella, we started on our dessert, Churros Con Chocolate. It was indeed delicious. They were doughnut sticks which you dip in warm chocolate sauce.

"Alex, I have something for you." Luke starts, while we ate.

"Hm? What is it?" I asked, completely baffled.

"Close your eyes, and put your hands out." He replies oh so softly. I slowly put my hands out and shut my eyes closed. I didn't know what to expect but his hypnotising voice made me want to lean into a kiss. Suddenly, a lukewarm (haha ;) ) substance touched my nose. I quickly opened my eyes and saw Luke dying of laughter. I wiped a finger across my nose to figure out that Luke had put some chocolate sauce there.

I gave him a sarcastic evil stare and told him, "I'm going to get you back, don't you worry Lukey boy." He looked at me, tears of laughter in his eyes and apologised, then carried on laughing. I looked over to Luke's right side, where Calum was looking at me. With my eyes, I told him to do the same to Luke, looking from the chocolate sauce to Luke, and back to him. Calum nodded as an evil smirk rose on his face.

Calum tapped Luke's shoulder and he looked at him. Calum made a serious face, telling Luke it wasn't funny. Luke looked back at me, noticing I had the same face, but not knowing it was fake. Calum's finger slowly goes to Luke's cheek, who's still staring at me, and wiped a load of chocolate sauce on his cheek. Luke jumps, startled as the rest of us start laughing.

"I told you." I joked. Luke started laughing as well as he wiped off the sauce.

"I love you babe." He whispers with a small smile.



We went to Ashton's place after the restaurant and just hung out there. The guys played a few more songs, which were truly amazing, and Michael and I versed each other in a heated game of Fifa. Wanna guess who won?


He always wins, and always loves it. I love it too, I love the look of joy on his face.

Suddenly, I got a phone call from Dr Foster. I became serious and picked up the phone, everyone else stood silent, listening.

"Dr Foster?"

"Miss Brian." He greeted. "I have talked to my friend about your case, he's interested. I've given him all the details so you won't need to give him those again. In fact, he is starting a search for our suspect, Mr Rudy Cray, to arrest him. Would you care to meet us at Northbrook Police Station, where we can discuss the events of our search?"

"Oh, um, yes of course Doctor. I'll be there right away. Thank you so much."

"My pleasure. And please, call me Richard."

"Thanks Richard." I cut the phone and looked at the guys.

"We're coming too." Michael said seriously. Ashton grabbed the keys and we hurried for the police station.



We entered the police station, looking at every face, searching for Richard.

"Miss Brian." Richard greeted me from my right side and nodded at the boys.

"Alex." I allowed him. "And this is Michael, Calum and Ashton, my best friends." I gestured towards them. "And Luke, my boyfriend." Richard nodded at them once again and led me to his friend's office. We walked inside to see a middle aged man with curly dirty blonde hair, like Ashton's and rich blue eyes like Luke's. Lashton af or what?

He stood up to greet us.

"Miss Brian, I am Officer Grayson."

"Alex. Pleased to meet you."

"Alright, so please take a seat, and we'll get started."

There were three seats so I sat down on the middle one and gestured for Luke and Michael to sit on either side of me, after having Calum and Ashton insisting on standing. Luke held my hand tightly on his lap, rubbing circles with his thumb on the back.

"So I have looked into the profile of our suspect, Mr Cray, and may I say that my suspicions of him have risen." I looked at the Officer wide eyed, as he spoke. "It says that he has been living in the U.S. for 8 years in total, though his place of birth is in the U.S.. He has not been out of the states ever, which means, he is running on fake passports. He has been stopped once at security checks for having knives but let go after saying and proving that he works at a knife making factory. I think we may have to interview him." I sighed, thinking about how long this whole thing would last.

"I want you to know that this man could possibly be very dangerous right now, so I suggest you take my offer of having a personal bodyguard." He continued. I looked up at him, slightly confused, slightly shocked.

"It's that bad?" I whispered.

"I'm afraid it is Alex. Our team are searching for him as we speak."

I looked at Luke, who gave me reassuring eyes.

"I think you should take the offer Alex, at the most, I want you to be safe." Michael stated. "I can't bear losing you." He confessed, barely in a whisper.

"Take it Alex, it's for your best." Calum also said.

"But, I won't know the bodyguard, I mean, how do I trust him?"

"Hey, I'm on holidays for work from tomorrow, I could be your bodyguard." Richard suggested slowly. I looked over to the boys as they nodded to me.

"If that's no trouble at all, then okay." I agreed.

"Great. I'll update you on any new information." Officer Grayson concluded. I nodded silently, looking down. "We'll catch him, Miss Brian. He surely has already broken the law."

"Thanks, Officer Grayson." Luke, Michael and I said at the same time. We looked at each other and smiled. We stood up, getting ready to leave.

"Being your bodyguard, I'll have to temporarily move into your residency. Is that okay?" Richard asked.

"Oh, um, yes of course." I hesitated. I completely forgot about that. I mean, I trust the doctor, I just felt awkward about him moving in.

"It's okay Alexis, I'll be following your house rules." He smiled.

"Thank you all so much once again." I started.

"Are you going to say that everytime we talk, Miss Brian?" Dr Foster asked.

"Maybe." I smiled. We left the room and headed for the car. I let out a big sigh and put my hand through my hair.

"I'm going to be more of a bodyguard to you than the doctor, okay? If he's with you, I'm there too. I don't want him pushing his limits." Luke scoffed.

"Are you jealous?" I asked him, half shocked, half amused.

"No, I just don't trust him too much for him to live with you for a while."

"Don't worry Lucas, you can keep me company okay?"

"Okay." He smiled and leaned in for a kiss. Our lips touched just as a spark ignited. They moved together, like couples dancing softly, and it felt good. This wasn't a heated make-out session. This was a soft start to our beautiful life together.
