With Xyla Quest and Stanley Batton working together, they were able to get the bed set up very quickly.
Right then, Jeremy Quest entered the room.
“You two are rather efficient. Not bad,” he said.
“You are very efficient, too,” Xyla said and chuckled.
“Alright. I won’t get in the way of what you two are doing together. Hurry up and go back to your room. I’m going to practice Tai Chi for a while on my own,” Jeremy said after he laughed.
“Okay… We are going back to our room then. Goodnight, Dad,” Xyla said.
When Stanley heard this, he naturally reached for Xyla’s hand and left the room with her.
“Goodnight,” Jeremy said as he walked them out and watched as they left
Xyla led Stanley into her room. Her room was grandly decorated. The wallpapers were of different shades of pink. It was a luxurious design meant for teenage girls.
As soon as they entered the room, Xyla felt embarrassed. Her bras were scattered all over her bed. She must have left them there when she cleaned her room up before and forgot about them soon after.
Xyla’s face turned completely red.
“Is this how you are welcoming me?” Stanley asked while he smiled playfully and looked at the items on her bed.
“Not at all,” Xyla quickly denied after taking in a deep breath.
After that, she gathered everything and carried them into her large closet. As soon as she closed the door behind her, she could feel her cheeks burning up, almost as if they had been scorched by the sun.
‘How embarrassing!’ She thought.
After hanging her bras on the rack, Xyla held her forehead in a depressed manner.
“How could I forget this?” She mumbled to herself.
Xyla knocked her head softly with her hand before returning to her bedroom.
Right then, Stanley was seated on the couch next to the french window and was looking at his phone. There was a pretty view of the evening scenery behind him. Whenever he sat, he would sit in an upright manner. His intricately woven black pants accentuated his long legs. His side profile was enough to make everything else fade into the background.
After looking at Stanley briefly, Xyla walked over to the door and gently opened the door.
Right then, Jeremy was practicing Tai Chi in the walkway. He seemed very engrossed yet elegant in his movements.
After silently closing the door, Xyla turned to look at the man by the window with a depressed look on his face.
“My father is still practicing Tai Chi. Based on how well I know him, it might take a long while. Wait here for now,” she said.
“Alright,” Stanley answered calmly. His facial expression was still the same.
Xyla walked directly over to him and grabbed his phone quickly before he could react. After that, she held onto the phone tightly as she opened WeChat.
Stanley frowned helplessly as he quickly stood up and tried to snatch the phone away from her.
“Give it back to me. Listen to me,” he said.
However, Xyla had no such intention. While she dodged him, she looked for their chat room on WeChat.
There was no other chat room in his WeChat account apart from one named ‘Gentleman’s Club’. She had no idea what was being said inside.
Since their mutual chat room was right below the Gentleman’s Club, it was very easy to locate.
In the following moments, Xyla would dodge Stanley whenever he pounced at her. Very soon, she was able to accept the money on his behalf. Right then, Xyla coincidentally leaned against a wall. She was panting as she leaned on the wall.
Before knowing Five Batton, Xyla never realized returning money could be such a difficult thing to do. By then, Stanley had caught up with Xyla. He now placed both hands against the wall, effectively trapping her between his arms so that she could not escape. His large body loomed over her, keeping her trapped.
“Give it to me, okay?” He asked softly.
As soon as Xyla looked up, she could see his handsome face up close. Her heart stopped beating as her face turned red.
