The simple Zen-like interior complemented the elegant modern restaurant. Cozy padded chairs and pristine linen draped on each table. Subtle paintings hanged on the monotonous colored walls. Highlighted at the center of the room was an aquarium that stretched out from the ceiling to the floor and glittered like waterfall under the dim lights.
It was intimate.
A lovers’ restaurant.
I wanted to ogle at the interior some more if not for the delicious handsome man in front of me.
Zhander was wearing an all-black tieless three-piece suit, showcasing his sexy collarbone and that drool-worthy line of his chest.
I could almost smell his alluring scent, a mixture of bittersweet chocolate and sweat. Very much male. Very much enticing.
Of course, Cain still smells the best!
I smiled at the thought.
“How are you?”
I was woken up by Zhander’s deep voice.
“Fine…… A little busy with school.”
“How come I can no longer contact you? Is something wrong with your number?”
“I don’t know what you’re talking about. I just called you a while ago.”
Zhander’s brows furrowed.
“It must be Cain then.”
What does Cain have to do with anything?
Was the reason why I hadn’t received calls or messages from Zhander since Cain and I started our relationship was because the cold man had done something on my phone, like blocking Zhander out?
I restrained a snicker from barking out of my lips, afraid that Zhander would take offense.
I straightened my back on my chair, intertwined my fingers on top of the table and stared seriously at Zhander while trying to exert my authority over the situation.
“Zhander, let’s get to the main point why I have asked you to meet with me today.”
Zhander raised his palm to stop me from talking.
“Leanna…… Please… Don’t ask me to stop pursuing you.” He placed his elbows on the table and leaned forward towards me. “I’m serious about you.”
His robust and alluring scent enticed me that I had to move back to break away from being pulled into his charms.
“Zhander, please consider my feelings–”
“Leanna. I can be a better man than Cain. What he can give you, I can give more.” Zhander’s voice became overbearing and a little pleading as he repeated the words he said to me in New York.
Honestly, I should have lashed out at him right about this moment, but I couldn’t seem to get angry nor irritated with this man.
“Zhander, it’s not about what you or Cain can give me. Nor is it having something you have that Cain don’t. It just so happens that the one I fell in love with – is Cain.” I tried to explain with my voice gentle and soft, being careful not to hurt him.
“Leanna, all I’m asking is for you to give me a chance–”
“No, Zhander. Cheating and disloyalty are never in my dictionary.” I said firmly and with finality without any room for argument.
Zhander slowly leaned on the couch, shoulders slumped, and a face that looked like the world had just ended.
Instantly, I felt guilty and pity towards him. I tried to reach out and console him.
“Zhander, I like you… but it’s not love. It’s more a level of like for a friend or a brother. I know you feel that way about me too. You’re just confuse.”
I guess I was really not made for consoling people when Zhander’s face became terrifying in the dim lights as his aura turned violent and oppressive.
“Don’t you dare say that you know how I feel when here I am… begging and pleading… shamelessly asking you to give me a chance!” His tone was rough while his voice was accusing as he narrowed his eyes at me.
Oh! You didn’t just use that tone on me, little man!
My heart pounded, causing my blood to rushed into my brain, giving its needed oxygen. My muscles tensed up, ready for action.
“Alright. Let me give you a hint then. Imagine, if Estela and I are about to fall in a cliff into our doom and you can only save one.” I leaned closer towards him. My teasing eyes locked on his.
