Meanwhile, back in Kai's room, Kai was still in the bathroom, reeling at what he had just done, and almost done, with Miss Hooligan.
She really was a hooligan through and through. He couldn't believe that she had managed to break him. He was shocked at how bold and daring she was. He wasn't sure if that was something she would have done without the effect of the wine, or whether it was the wine that was talking. But somehow, from having spent a bit of time with her, he thought that it was very likely that she would have acted the same way. Knowing her, she probably would have tried to beat him up first.
She had completely taken him off guard. Was it because it had been a long time since he had bedded a woman? Or was it because the woman was her?
He ran his fingers through his hair. What he had just done was very risky for her. Regardless of whether it was because of her or not, the fact of the matter was that it was way too dangerous and he wouldn't allow it to happen again.
He closed his eyes, took a deep breath in and shook his head to clear his mind, to increase his defences against her so that he wouldn't fall for her antics again. Once he felt his mind was in full control, he washed his hands and face and headed out to the room again, ready to face the upcoming battle.
However, all of his preparation was for nothing because he walked in to see that she had escaped the cocoon and was sprawled out on the bed, sleeping like a log. A very noisy log.
He couldn't help but chuckle as he heard snoring in a very unladylike manner. She really did not act like a lady at all, even while she was asleep! Kai looked at her sleeping face for a second longer before he moved again.
Sighing, he pulled her limbs back to her side of the bed so that he had room to lay down on it. He then took the covers that she had kicked off the bed and covered her up to her neck before he lay down on the other side of the bed. He closed his eyes but his mind wouldn't stop running.
Not only was he thinking about what they had just done, it was also in turmoil over whether or not she had actually regained her memories. He really hoped that she did not because if she did, then they were in for a world of trouble. How would they explain to her how her memories of all of them were erased from her mind, not to mention Abi's family as well. She would definitely think that something funny was going on and she would be right.
He had no idea how he would deal with that at all. His mind thought about just spilling the truth to her, no matter how impossible the story might be. What would she do? How would she take it? Could he really do that to her? Put her in danger for the rest of her life?
If Abi could live life knowing their secret, then why couldn't she? That was the answering thought in his mind. An answer that came from a place inside him that wanted to tell her everything, a place that wanted to let her know who he really was and hoped that she would still act like she did towards him.
His eyes opened, startled at the thought. All this time, he had been trying to avoid Miss Hooligan because he knew she would just be trouble. All their encounters had proven that to be true. Every time they met, he would become very frustrated because of her forwardness. He felt like it was a man's job to chase after a woman but she was always the one making moves on him.
However, there was also a side to her that intrigued him and dare he say it, attracted him. She was the complete opposite of how he thought a lady should act but that in itself was what made her intriguing, interesting, refreshing, like a breath of fresh air. Air that he didn't know he needed.
His thoughts floated to his first ever encounter with her in that elevator. She had no idea who she was asking to beat up at that time. He smiled as he thought back to being beaten by her and how she gave him money for his troubles. If she only knew, would she be shocked? Or would she brush it off and say that he had the chance to say no to her request?
As these thoughts floated around his head, he finally drifted off to sleep, dreaming of the face of the person sleeping next to him.
The sun shone through the windows into the room and gently caressed Kai's face. Kai opened his eyes slowly. It took a little while for his brain to kick in, to remember the events from the night before and in that instant, he sat upright like he had been hit by a lightning bolt, and ended up staring straight into Miss Hooligan's eyes.
Her eyes weren't hazy anymore. They were as clear as crystal but he saw rage within them. She was furious. He was shocked. He had never felt this kind of rage from her before. It was like she wanted to kill someone!
He immediately thought that she was like this because of what happened between them last night, while she was intoxicated. He was about to speak, to apologize for what happened the night before, to say that he shouldn't have done it and that he would take whatever punishment she was going to dish out but she beat him to it.
However, her next words made his heart nearly jump out of his chest.
"Where is Alex?!"
