After they kissed for a long while, Stanley Batton held Xyla Quest’s face in his hands while rubbing her cheeks with his thumbs. “Go ahead and play your game,” he said.
Blushing, Xyla pushed him away and hopped off the desk. When she landed on the ground, her body tipped forward because she lost her balance. Subconsciously, she hugged him to hold herself steady.
Stanley pinched Xyla’ s chin softly with a playful look in his eyes. “Do you want to continue kissing me that badly? Hmm?” He asked.
Xyla immediately blushed as her heart began to pound. “Jerk. I lost my balance. That’s all!”
Stanley’s smile widened, and he kissed Xyla on her soft, smooth lips. “We’ll continue tonight. I’ve got a lot of work to do for now,” he said.
“Who wants to continue doing anything with you?” Xyla gently pushed him away before returning to the couch with an annoyed expression on her face.
Looking at her from behind, Stanley couldn’t help but chuckle a little. He then sat down at his desk. He was still feeling the hots for Xyla on the inside.
Quickly, Xyla sat with her legs crossed before picking up the laptop. Her heart was still pounding.
To make her heartrate normal again, she decided to focus on playing another match instead.
In the evening, the sun set against the city that was gradually getting brighter with newly turned-on lights. The large office was tinted with a warm orange hue.
Xyla was feeling tired from playing her game. After quickly ending a match, she turned off her laptop and stretched lazily. She then turned to look at Stanley, who was sitting behind his desk. Xyla didn’t realize it, but Stanley had put on a pair of glasses with golden frames at some point. The pair of glasses had a thin, gold chain attached to its base.
The combination of the suit and tie he wore, coupled with his exquisitely handsome looks and how he looked when he focused on his work, Stanley looked even more like a dashing gentleman.
This was the first time Xyla had seen Stanley in glasses, and he looked so good that a lot of women would probably be captivated by the sight of him.
Stanley decisively signed on a document before indicating that he was done with work by placing the documents next to him. As soon as he looked up, he turned to face Xyla.
Xyla happened to be looking at him as well.
When their eyes met, a warm sensation filled their hearts.
The tired and cold look in Stanley’s eyes instantly faded away, and his facial expression became gentle. “Why are you looking at me?” He asked.
With that, he took his glasses off and walked toward Xyla.
“Nothing much. I just thought that you looked good in glasses,” Xyla said truthfully.
Xyla could feel her heartbeat rate increasing just by looking at him like this.
Stanley sat down next to her and ruffled her hair. “Oh?”
“It’s true…” Xyla said before standing up with her phone in her hand.
When she stood up, she noticed that her phone had been turned off. It must have automatically turned off on its own when she was playing games earlier.
“Come on… Let’s go to your parents’ place.” Xyla extended her hand to Stanley.
Stanley held her hand and kissed it before standing up and wrapping one arm around her while they headed outside.
“Okay. Let’s go…”
“Are you tired?” Xyla looked up at Stanley’s handsome face and asked.
“I’m exhausted. That’s why you’ll have to compensate me tonight, won’t you?” Stanley asked softly.
“Can’t you think about anything else?” Xyla asked.
“No,” Stanley said.
Xyla blushed, and she was lost for words.
The two of them took Stanley’s private lift and soon arrived at the lobby.
Many employees were rushing to get off work. When these employees saw Stanley and Xyla, they nodded respectfully and greeted the two. Once again, their closeness made everyone present feel extremely envious.
