Alec could hear someone scream.Well…it probably wasn for him so he continued his phone call ”As I was saying Mr.Pierre- ” He was suddenly pinned down to his car and his phone fell to the ground.His arm was twisted behind his back and he was in a tight spot . ”What in the - ”
”Just open the car and get in. ” A familiar voice spoke. Alec didn move. He was never the type to listen. ” Don mess with me . Im not in the mood. ” Alex felt something like a gun touch his lower back.He decided that this wasn the time to act pig headed. He obeyed.
He took the drivers seat and his assaulter sat in the back. The gun was still pointed at him. ” Drive. ”
Alec decided to take his chances and view his attacker through the mirror.His brow furrowed. ” Its you! ” He stopped the car and spun round to look at her properly. ” Miss Beautiful, long time no see! To what do I owe this not so pleasant encounter? ”
Gwen was speechless. Why was he so happy to see her? Didn he realize why she was here!? Well she was holding a gun….That pretty much clearly stated her purpose.Either he was fearless or extremely stupid. And Gwen was starting to think it was the latter.
”Wheres my briefcase? ” Gwen placed the gun at his forehead. ”Don think I won pull the trigger . ”
” What briefcase? ” Alex was genuinely clueless. He had nearly twenty briefcases and he never took time to notice if any was misplaced.
” Black leather briefcase. You had an identical one that day at the hotel. It has something I need. ” Gwen was growing impatient and this idiot was as slow as ever.
” Im sorry …I can help you right now …I have a meeting in about an hour and..eh..It might take a while … you know….driving home…getting into the house..getting to my room.searchin- ” Gwens hellish glare shut him up.
” Forgive me for asking….but Im going to be blunt . Have you always been this stupid or are you working for someone and trying to confuse me? ”Gwens frustration was written all over her face.She just wanted to blow his head off and check if he had any brains. ” Just answer the question I asked … please. ”She gave a fake smile.
” All Im saying is…All my briefcases are home. ” he shrugged his shoulders and widened his blue eyes.He was trying to look adorable.
” Stop it. ”
” Stop what? ”
” Stop acting all cute and all. ” Gwen sneered as she put her gun away.When she looked up Alec had moved closer. He had a play boyish smirk on his face. ” What?! ”
” Miss, we
e alone in this car .Just the two of us .Aren you afraid of what Ill do if you keep hitting on me… calling me cute. ”
Gwen couldn believe this guy.He kept his gaze firm . It was like he was staring into her soul. She was starting to get hot.Her eyes darted around the car. ” Drive or Ill shoot you. ”
” To where? ”
” Your house!….Where else, genius! ” Gwen scoffed.
” Whatever you say maam! ” He faked a British accent.He noticed a quick smile on Gwens face.
” Welcome sir. ” Edward greeted Alec. ” And ,oh my, whos the lovely guest? ”Edward bowed to Gwen. He was an old man , about 60 if Gwen guessed right . He has the most sincere grey eyes shed ever seen.His presence gave a sense of belonging.She couldn help but smile.
” Im Gwen, Gwen Barkley. ” She held out her hand and to her surprise,he kissed it.She giggled . ” Nice to meet you . ”
” Lets get in ,my dear. ” Alec teased.
Gwen rolled her eyes .She cursed under her breath.
She thought the gate was marvelous but she didn expect the house to leave her in shock. One needed sun glasses in here! Every thing was sparkly and the gigantic windows let in so much light ,it looked heavenly.The chandelier was enormous and old fashioned but it matched the interior decor. Everything was a fine blend of ancient and modern. Then one thing caught her attention. A painting of a lady.It was large and placed in the centre.It drew your attention.It was beautifully painted …almost alive.
”Right! The briefcase!…. ”She spun round and bumped into Alec .He held her by the waist so she wouldn stumble .His grip was firm .She held onto his arms for support.Gwen swallowed.She felt like she was sweating. God !…Her heart was in her throat.
Alec couldn help but come closer.His free hand circled her eye slowly….. carefully. ”You have lovely eyes. ” He smiled. Utter silence followed.The situation was tense …mostly for Gwen. She literally just ambushed the guy in gun point and forced him to bring her to his house yet he was being so …..so….sweet. ”Should I let go or do you like staying in my arms? ”Alec teased.
Gwen snapped out of it and broke free from him .She avoided his gaze and coughed nervously. ” Lets go to your room. ”
” You really can wait to get into my bed…am I right? ” He said as he run his fingers through his hair.
” Just…Shut up ….please ….Im begging you . ” This was getting too much.
Alec brought out his briefcases one by one. They were all black and identical. ” Search for what you ambushed me for. ” He threw his arms in the air and sat on his bed.
Gwen helped herself and opened the briefcases one by one.The first five were empty….the next six had documents…Gwen was tired.She leaned on a wall and closed her eyes .
” Gwen …. lovely name. ” Alec muttered loud enough for her to hear. ” But I expected something more…you know … vicious…something like…Graciella..or…Lucianaita! ” He tried his best with the Mexican accent.
Gwen laughed.Her laughter was beautiful.Alec observed her. She still had her eyes closed. Her forehead had some sweat beads and her black curly hair stuck to her face.Oh, what he would give be that hair .To be so close to her . He sucked in air and chuckled. What was he thinking?
” Care to share whats making you happy? ” Gwen slowly opened her eyes and looked at him .He was lying in his bed with his arm supporting his head. His blonde hair was ruffled and his eyes were as hypnotizing as ever .She looked away.
” Wouldn you like to know my name? ” he raised his brow. ” I mean….youve attacked me twice so far .First …you hit me…now you threaten me with a gun…. Aren you in the slightest bit curious about who I am? ”
” If I ask ….Will you shut up and come help me? ” Gwen asked.
”Yes….yes I will. ” Alec sat up waiting to hear her ask. He didn know why he was excited.
Gwen sighed. ”Whats your name? ”
Alec smiled and stood up .He walked to her and held out his hand ”I thought youd never ask. ” he held her hand and squeezed it. ” Alec Reinster. ”
”Gwendoline Prudence Barkley. ” Gwen shook his hand. ” But you can call me Gwen. ”
