“Don’t say that, we’re not that close.” Disappointment overwhelmed Leia when she recalled the things that had happened in the
mountains, and she immediately felt irritated with Xavier.
“How cruel! We slept together, didn’t we? Of course that makes US close,” Xavier said teasingly, finding Leia’s behaviour cute.
He slowly got closer to her and stared deeply into her eyes. “I don’t mind reminding you if you forgot how close we were.”
“How… are you going to do that?” Shaken by his nearness, Leia subconsciously leaned backward.
”1 remember that my ex likes it when I kiss her against the wall. I don’t mind helping you remember if you’ve forgotten…” Xavier
murmured seductively as he backed her into a corner, leaning over her.
’Idiot!” Blushing, Leia tried to slap him but he grabbed her hand and pulled her into his arms, whispering softly into her ear,
“Aren’t we close?”

asked, “Are you free? Let’s have a drink in the cafe downstairs.”
“No, I’m busy,” Leia said bluntly and wanted to leave, but Xavier grabbed her hand and pulled her to the elevator, saying, “No,
you’re free, trust me.”
“Hey! Xavier, what are you doing? Let go of me!” Furious, Leia tried to pull away, but was ultimately dragged into the elevator
“Waiter, I would like one iced Americano and one Cappuccino,” Xavier called out to a waiter the instant they arrived at the cafe.
Although they had only dated briefly, he remembered all of Leia’s preferences. Though he seemed carefree and uncommitted,
that wasn’t the case at all.
“What is it you want to talk about? Hurry up, I have things to do.” After Leia sat down, she crossed her arms and urged him
