She deepened the kss and quickly removed her school jacket.

Just then my eyes came clear and her face became visible to me.

“No.” I said, trying to push her away.

“Oh no… Please, Xander! I’ve been waiting for this like eternity. Be my first. ” Kimmie pleaded.

That jolted me back into reality finally. I stood up and smacked my head.

Vicker…what the h*ell do you think you’re doing!

Get hold of yourself! I chided myself and moved away from the bed before looking at the disappointed face of Kimmie.

“We shouldn’t be doing this. We should be in school. Get dressed and head back.” I said softly to her.

Kimmie wore back her jacket and left disappointedly.

Sighing deeply I sank back on the bed and buried my head in my palm.

Why can’t he thought of you leave my head,Sarah?

I never knew I love you this much.

I thought dejectedly. I really don’t think i can go on anymore.

I will have to call dad and tell him I’m coming home.

I just couldn’t concentrate any longer.
But on a second thought,I kicked against that decision.

I’m the only son dad has got and I’ve got to study hard so as to be able to take over dad’s business and investments.

I’m gonna try harder and forget about Sarah for now. I’ve got to try.


I wiped off tears from my eyes as I got to school and sat inside the hall all alone.

I can’t believe he pushed me away with my rear offer.

Any guy would die for it.

Moments ago,he had stared into my eyes with so much love

Was it for someone else?

Who is it? I couldn’t help but ask.

Come what may… I must have Xander.

I can’t lose him to anyone cos I’m already deeply in love with him.


The next day,I got to school looking so miserable trying to forget Sarah.

I put down my bag on my locker and went to Kimmie’s class.

I had to apologise for yesterday.

I saw her talking with her friends.

The girls in her class gave me a sweet welcome for coming to their class.

I walked over to Kimmie’s seat but she looked away at my arrival.

I bent in front of her. “Kimmie…. please look at me.” I said softly.

Her friends were all making the lovey dovey sounds but they would never understand.

Kimmie turned to look at me and o could see pure concern on her face.

“I’m sorry about what happened yesterday. I just want us to be friends. Nothing more.” I said softly.

I nodded and I hugged her.

Everyone in the class cheered and clapped.

I only smiled behind Kimmie’s back. “Thank you.” I whispered into her ear.

?Three months later ?


Happily, I came into the room and sat on my little bed.

I opened my bag and brought out the plane ticket inside it, feeling so excited.

A plane ticket to Korea….i just can’t wait.

I’ve been saving a lot for it for the past few months.

Rosetta came in and gasped wheh she saw the plane ticket.

“You finally got it!” She said happily and hugged me.

“I’m so excited. Finally,I’m gonna see him. I just wanna know how he looks like and tell him how much ive missed him.” I said happily.

” What time is the flight?” Rosella asked.

” Nine o’clock tommorow. I’ve got so little time.” I said.

” I will help you pack up few of your clothes for the trip. You are so lucky daddy said yes to this.

Make sure you are back before school resumes. We will be calling you.” Rosetta said.

Joana came in too and together we put my things together for the trip.

The plan is when I get to Seoul,I’m gonna look for Shaolin international School and then I will be directed to Vicker’s house.

That night,I couldn’t sleep a wink. I was filled with the thoughts of Vicker.

I can’t wait to see him again.

Finally,I drifted into a sweet sleep….


I paced angrily outside the compound.

How dare the little w!tch trying to fly over to Seoul to see my own son?

She’s got some bug fat nerves, doesn’t she?

She’s yet to know what I’m capable of doing.

I’m gonna show her no one tampers with Lola Dante.

Furiously,I fished out my phone and made a quick call.

?Mask,are you there at the camp house?” I asked once the line was connected.

?Mrs McDonald? Wow…longest of time!” Mask said from the other line making me miss impatiently.

? There isn’t time for pleasantries dummy. I’ve got a job for you. It’s very urgent. ” I said looking around the dark to make sure no one was hearing me.

?Wow. That’s awesome. Hope you know my pay ma’am. What job is it? ”

?It’s a kidnap job. Yes. Very early tommorow morning.”


Oh no!! Sarah is in danger!!
