Chapter 14: Interested

 

I motioned to leave when he grabbed my hand.

 

Come on!

 

He then pulled me to the group of men and women. I didnt want to make a scene in front of this many people, so I let him led me along.

 

Everyone, I found us a new member! Elliot announced.

 

The two mens eyes sparkled while the two women sized me up.

 

So it was going to be a three vs. three battle.

 

Wait. Why did I already count myself in?

 

Their faces were unfamiliar. I wonder if they were college students from other universities or something.

 

Zoe?

Urgh . . .

 

Hello, Nicholas.” I faced the man in his sexy open buttoned white collar shirt and swimming shorts.

 

Nicholass eyes narrowed while his face plastered a disbelief kind of look. His eyes glinted in desire before it quickly replaced by a kind, gentlemanly smile.

 

Hello, Mr. Farrell.” Elliot got between the two of us while his face had a laid back smile.

 

Mr. Volknov,” Nicholas greeted back, tone respectful as his face was all smiles.

 

I was surprised that they knew each other.

 

Nicholas was eight years older than Elliot, but he was respectful towards the young man.

 

Zoe, I didnt know youre acquainted with Mr. Elliot Volknov.” Nicholas smiled at me, yet I heard the slight accusation in his tone.

 

Ah . . . No. Why did I fell with this kind of guy again?

 

Weve just got acquainted today. Were about to play a volleyball game,” Elliot said when I didnt answer.

 

Nicholass smile grew wider. Oh . . . Do you have room for one more?

 

What?! No!

 

Sorry, Mr. Farrell. Were already even,” Elliot replied with an apologetic tone.

 

Oh,” Nicholas said, his smile never wavered. He then walked to the two near the playing field and whispered something before coming back to us.

 

That guy over there said he would be the referee so I could take his place.”

 

I glared at him.

 

Why is this man approaching me now?!

 

Elliot maintained his warm smile as he spoke, I see. Lets start then.”

 

Mr. Volknov, why dont we make the game more . . . interesting?

 

When Elliot didnt answer, Nicholas continued, Why dont we make a bet?

 

A bet?

 

If I win, youll grant me an audience with your father,” Nicholas said without batting an eyelid.

 

Oh . . . So this is why.

 

I was embarrassed, thinking that Nicholas approached us because of me. He was obviously here for Elliot for whatever reasons.

I see . . .” Elliot remained unfazed like these kinds of dealings were happening to him every day. He maintained his warm, carefree smile.

 

Alright . . . but . . .” Elliot grabbed my shoulder and shoved me to his side while I was stunned at the sudden closeness. Zoe is on my team, and if you lose, youll have to heed one wish of mine.”

 

The way he said my name was like we knew each other and were the best of friends.

 

I stared at him in disbelief.

 

Nicholas brows twitched. Alright. Lets start then,” he said before he walked to where the other players were waiting.

 

I slapped Elliots hand away from my shoulder. What are you doing? I didnt say that Ill agree.”

 

Elliot just grinned while rubbing his hand. Dont you want to get back at your ex-fiancé?

 

I thought you dont know me? You were asking my name a while ago. How did you know I was that jerks ex?

 

Sorry, I lied . . . Who wouldnt know about the Collins infamous black sheep? Youre very popular, even abroad.”

 

So youre just pretending. What do you want? I crossed my arms and switched to my bitchy mode.

 

Relax. I dont have any motive in approaching you.” Elliot weakly smiled. I just . . . I wanted to get acquainted with you.”

 

Why?

 

I was too busy setting my guard and ignored his cheeks that were turning red.

 

Because . . . Im interested in you.”

 

. . .

 

. . .

 

I should be flattered.

 

But Im not.

 

I couldnt believe he was interested in me. After Nicholas and the incident with Emma and the thing with that boy, I found it difficult to trust people I just met.

 

You dont believe me. Your face says it all.” Elliots expression fell, yet he maintained his warm smile. His kind eyes almost made me reach out to console him.

 

I suddenly felt guilty for making him sad.

 

. . .

 

. . .

 

Hey! You guys, lets start already!

 

The tense, awkward atmosphere broke upon the impatient voice of one of the female players. They already took their position, and I noticed that Nicholass team have two towering males, including the man himself and a female who competed with their height.

 

While our side had Elliot as a male and us two girls. Not to mention Elliot and I were of the same short height, the other girl was probably at five foot six inches.

 

This is completely one-sided!
