“When I saw the lovey-dovey clip of him and his wife on Instagram yesterday, I thought it was just a deliberate attempt to build a good self-image.”
“Same here. I totally didn’t expect them to be so sweet in real life. I’m stunned!”
“That girl is my life goal, man…”
When Xyla returned to the airport terminal, she heard a bunch of girls screaming frantically.
“Josh Batton!!! Ahhhhhlihh!”
“Brother Joshhhhhh! !! I love you!!!”
“My boy! Mommy loves you!!!”
The screams pierced through her eardrums, sending a prickle down her spine.
Xyla subconsciously glanced in the direction where the irritating noises came from, and she was surprised to find a huge crowd. There were at least thousands of people in the distance. She could not even see where Josh Batton was. All that came into her view were the frenzied looks of Josh’s fans.
All of them were so excited as if they were celebrating the New Year. Their faces and necks turned cherry red as they shouted at their beloved idol. No doubt, this group of people was the center of attention of the enormous airport.
Amid the crowd, Josh was moving inchmeal under the escort of his assistant and several bodyguards.
The original assistant, who had been with him for many years, had gone back to his hometown to get married. The girl next to Josh was the new assistant his company assigned for him. Her name was Annabeth Cares. Though Annabeth had encountered all kinds of crazy fans since she started to work with Josh, she still felt uncomfortable about them.
She stood nervously in front of Josh, trying to block the fans who were trying to pounce on Josh. Sweat, as well as exhaustion, washed over her.
On the other hand, Josh wore light blue outerwear with a plain white T-shirt inside. He completed his outfit with a pair of pale blue jeans and a pair of white shoes. His whole face was covered by the black cap and the black mask. The only visible feature was his eyes. However, even so, he was still the best-looking guy in the entire airport. Be it his appearance or his temperament, everything about him could knock out the girls effortlessly. No matter who was standing next to him, they would be dwarfed by the great artist.
Those fans who were close to him had completely lost their sanity. They were overwhelmed by his charm, and their faces were as red as a tomato. Everyone was constantly handing him letters and gifts.
Josh did not accept any gifts. He only accepted their letters. One by one, he took the letters from his fans patiently. In a short while, Josh found himself holding a big stack of letters in his hands.
Suddenly, his eyes inadvertently met Xyla’s as he stared ahead of him. Xyla smiled at him before walking in his direction. Without hesitation, Josh made his way through the crowd and strode toward her. The bodyguards immediately ran after him.
Jealousy was written all over the fans’ faces as they watched the two of them approach each other.
“Why are you at the airport?” Josh asked.
“I’m here to see my husband off,” explained Xyla.
“Why? Where did he go?”
“He’s going overseas to handle something.”
“Did you drive here?” Josh asked again.
“Yeah, I should get going. Be careful,” Xyla said.
Josh nodded in response.
Subsequently, Xyla waded through the crowd under her bodyguards’ escort and headed to the exit right away. Conversely, Josh returned to his large force and slowly advanced to the exit.
