💖 The Loverboys💖
(A night to remember…)
By: Faith Lucky.
He t©uçhed his forehead and finally bent over the hole.
I stretched out my hand and he held it and started bringing me out.
I gro-an ed because of the pains and when I got to the surface, he supported me by the [email protected]!st and finally brou-ght me out.
I breathed heavily and looked at my knee.
The glas-s was still stuck in it and blood was oozing from it.
We were about running away when we noticed the direction we were supposed to take had become dangerous and people were running away from it.
I even saw a man who’s hand had been shut.
There was no way we could go further.
I looked at Alex and anxiety was clearly written on his face.
Then he looked at me and stated running the opposite direction and I followed.
We ran to an unknown place and surprisingly, we found a tiny creaky door and Alex opened it and we went in and he closed the door.
The room was very small and there was no window in it except for the square like opening which was covered with glas-s.
Hopefully, it’d be difficult for anyone to sp©t us in here.
The room was kind of dirty and untidy with scattered books and cartoons all over.
It looked like a storage room.
Alex remained standing and just looked at the window. He was clearly devastated.
I hope Molly will be fine.
Probably, the guards will return to the car and take her away.
I hope the riot ends soon so we can all go home.
But right now, I have something more serious to be worried about.
It was losing a lot of blood and the pains were driving me crazy.
I looked at Alex who was backing me and didn’t even seem to care. Yet, he’s the reason I ended up in this state.
I shouldve stayed in the car with Molly.
I watched him de-ep his hands into his pocket, looking for something.
“Damn it!” He gro-an ed, not being able to find it.
It was his phone.
It seems he misplaced it.
And I left mine in the car.
He ruffled his hair and looked at me, then breathed out and looked back at the window.
I’m sure he wanted to talk to me, but his pride wouldn’t let him.
He placed one of his hands at akimbo and looked at me again.
“Do you have your phone with you?” He asked, sounding like it took him heaven and earth to say it.
“N…No sir” I replied and stared at the floor.
He groused and hit the wall.
Gosh! I have a feeling we’re really stuck in here.
and its getting dark alre-ady.
how do I treat my leg?
He turned and looked at me, probably attra-cted by the unplea-sant sounds I was ma-king as a result of my leg.
It was hurting so bad and I didn’t have the nerves to pu-ll out the glas-s.
Alex sighed and faced the window again.
I guess he must be suffocating right now.
I kept whimpering in pains.
Then, surprisingly, like, really surprisingly, he started walking to my direction.
Hold on; is he really coming to me or what?
Oh, my God!
He [email protected]£ to where I was and squatted in front of me.
What is he doing?
I batted my eye lashes as I stared in amusement.
He t©uçhed my leg and I swear to God, I felt my whole systems [email protected]
Wait; is he going to pu-ll out the glas-s?
No, no, no, no. Don’t tell me. I don’t think I’m re-ady for it.
He didn’t even look into my face. He just focused on the leg.
Oh, my gee!
I can’t believe Alex is really tou-ching my leg. Is this a dream or what?
His skin was so soft but the pains I was going throu-gh wouldn’t let me enjoy its t©uçh.
He held the leg with one hand and used the other to hold the glas-s.
This is really going to be so painful.
He turned the glas-s a little and the pains niggled at me.
“Sir!” I called fearfully and gr!pp£dhis hand.
He looked at the hands joined together and looked back at the leg.
“Stay still” he said icily and I gulped nervously and let go of his hand.
His voice was so cold, yet sweet.
He held the glas-s again and shut my eyes as he started pu-lling it out.
I felt my leg going on fire as the glas-s pu-ll-ed our of my skin.
“Aargh!” I screamed as it finally [email protected]£ out.
Oh, heavens! I hope labour pains won’t be as painful as this.
I looked at the glas-s which was covered with my blood.
I looked at my knee and the cut was pretty de-ep and still hurt so bad.
Alex threw the glas-s away and stood up and I thought he was going back to the window.
But he went to a place where a little piece of cotton la-id.
He took it up and returned to where I was and tied it round my leg.
I can’t believe Alex is really taking care of me.
He’s so sweet- even if he puts on a grumpy look while doing it.
Then he stood up and returned to facing the window.
“T…Thank you sir” I said nervously, but he didn’t even turn to look at me or say anything.
But it’s still a miracle he t©uçhed me.
Isn’t this the same guy who told me he dislikes me and didn’t want to have anything to do with me?
I can’t believe he actually paid attention to me.
Oh, Alex. I wish I can take away your sadness and fears.
Although the glas-s was out, the leg still hurt a lot because no treatment had been applied to it yet.
But the cotton Alex had tied around it was able to st©p the excess bleeding.
But I still nee-ded some serious treatment because I felt my leg being cut into two.
The riot still seemed to be on and I badly wished it’d come to an end.
After standing for a long while, he finally found a place to sit – on the floor!
Oh, my God!
The loverboy sat on the floor – the dirty dusty floor!
Are you kidding me?
The bench I was sitting on was the only seat in the room. But his pride wouldn’t let him seat next to me.
He closed his eyes and rested his head on the wall and I had an opportunity to stare into his pretty face all day.
I really love this guy.
Ouch! My leg!
This leg’s really ruining a lot of things.
Suddenly, it started raining and my anxiety increa-sed.
Why does it have to rain now?
How do we leave this place?
I looked at Alex and he didn’t seem to be bothered as he didn’t even open his eyes.
Could he be slee-ping or what?
I looked into his face as he la-id quietly.
He was so handsome.
I wonder why his love life has to be this pathetic.
What could be responsible for the deaths of his girlfriends?
Could it be Theo?
And where’s Theo?
After a long time, he opened his eyes and stood up and.
He stared throu-gh the window and went to open the door. He looked really tired.
He opened the door and looked outside and with how relaxed he looked, it seemed the riot had st©pped.
But it was still raining.
Then, he turned to me.
“Let’s go” he said perfunctorily and faced the door.
What? In the rain?
I struggled to stand on my feet as my legs still hurt a lot.
Are you sure I can walk in this state?
I walked slowly to the door, dragging my feet along and Alex and I got outside.
It seems the riot has st©pped as the whole place had become calm and quiet. But it was dark alre-ady.
How do we get home?
And for someone like Alex being a celebrity, it isn’t safe for him to be expo-sed in the open.
But it seems he really wanted to get out of here. He was probably worried about Molly.
We got outside and started walking in the rain, but I couldn’t walk fast – not at all.
My legs were still hurting and I had to walk with great difficulty. I think a snail would be fas-ter than me at this moment.
We were getting we-t by the rain and Alex was alre-ady ahead and I was obviously the one slowing him down.
He’d walk and st©p to look at me and seeing I was still struggling behind, he’d grumble and await me to get closer a bit.
Well, I wouldn’t blame myself. I was pas-sing throu-gh unbearable pains here and being un-der the rain was alre-ady ma-king me shiver. I felt like falling on the floor and pas-sing out.
The whole place was tranquil and really dirty as lots of things littered all over – broken glas-ses, bags, chairs and all that. It was a result of the riot and its a good thing it was all over. I just hope it didn’t take any ones life.
Soon, I st©pped walking as I couldn’t move the leg anymore. h0t tears formed up in my eyes.
Alex st©pped and looked at me and a frown crept into his face.
I tired moving again but couldn’t and feared I might fall at any moment.
He brushed his f!ngersinto his hair and huffed.
“This is so annoying” he muttered, but I was still able to hear him.
Then he [email protected]£ up and stood in front of me.
Okay, is he going to hit me or what?
He placed his both hands at akimbo and bent his head, as if contemplating on something.
He carried me up in his arms!
What the hell?
Have I pas-sed out alre-ady and probably dreaming?
Alex is carrying me in his arms!
The grumpy introvert leader of the Loverboys! .
I left my mouth open in shock as my eyes also dilated.
I stared into his face with disbelieve, but he didn’t even look at me.
He just started walking and tried avoiding my gaze.
I was shocked beyond doubt. His hands were tou-ching the back of my th!ghs as he carried me in a bridal style.
My hands were wra-pped around his n£¢k for balance and it was so unbelievable.
How did this even happen?
I kept staring into his face as he carried me in the rain and walked quic-kly.
At that moment, I felt my breath becoming still as I stared into his sparkling eyes which were trying not to look at me.
I saw something different in those eyes, but couldn’t really figure it out.
His t©uçh around me s£nt shivers down my spine.
We got to the facade of the building and there we met a few people, hanging around, talking about the incidence that had taken place.
Alex took me to a shade and kept me down on a place to sit.
He finally looked into my eyes as helped me sit, but I was out of words and didn’t even know what to say at that moment.
The whole thing was coming as a shock to me.
We were both drenched in the rain and summed up with everything that’s happened, I started shivering.
Alex left and walked over to two women who were not far from us.
The women exclaimed immediately they saw him.
“Oh, my God! It’s loverboy!”
They all started dreaming and I just managed to watch blearily.
“Can I lend your phone, miss?” He asked one of them.
He didn’t even say ‘plea-se’.
But she smiled happily and gave the phone to him.
Well, I’m sure having the leader of the loverboys t©uçh what’s hers was something she could die for.
And that same loverboy just carried me in his arms!
He made a call and with what he said, I think he was talking to one of his drivers.
Thank goodness! I really can’t wait to get out of here.
When he was done with the call, he returned the phone to the woman.
“Uhm…Sir…” she called enthusiastically just when he was about turning around.
“I’m Priscillia, sir. But my friends call me Cillia” she said in a funny smile that revealed all her teeth.
Gosh! If not that I’m in so much pains, I’d have laughed out my lungs.
“And so?” Alex said derogatorily and left her, returning to where I was.
I looked at the woman and noticed she was now looking like someone who had maggots all over her face.
The other woman with her held her by the shoulders and consoled her.
I folded my hands and huddled my legs together as II shivered from the cold.
Alex was still standing beside me and before I knew it, he took off his jacket and shockingly, he wra-pped it around me, ma-king it cover my back to my che-st.
Grrr! Another bombshell.
If a soothsayer had alerted me that something like this would ever happen between Alex and I, I never would’ve believed it.
Are you sure I’m not dreaming?
Then, he stood backing me and looked out to the road, hopefully waiting for his car to arrive.
I really wanted to talk to him, thank him so much for all he’s doing, but the whole shock wouldn’t let me.
I stared at him from behind for a short while and bent my head.
my strength was leaving me. The jacket he had given me could only do little to my condition.
My eye lids were heavy and f0rç£fully trying to close. And it took me a lot to keep them open.
After a while, I saw flashlights and I slowly lifted my head and discovered Alex’s cars had arrived.
But two police cars were behind them.
The cars pu-ll-ed over and policemen and armed guards [email protected]£ out from them immediately.
Two men dressed in suits also followed.
“Alexander” one of the men in suits called him in his full name as they hurried to where he was – with me.
“Thank goodness! You scared the hell out of us. We’ve been looking all over for you”.
“Were you hurt? What really happened?” The other man in suit also said, running his eyes round his b©dy.
“We’re sorry for leaving, sir Alex. We had no idea you were still in the building. We searched for you and thought you found your way out” one of the guards said.
“Where’s my sister?” Alex asked after a pause.
‘She’s safe now, sir. She’s at home” replied the guard.
The police were alre-ady going round the place.
“Come on Alex. We nee-d to go home. I’ll call one of your doctors immediately to have a check up on you” one of the men in suit said.
I have a feeling he’s Alex’s manager.
“No. I nee-d to take her to a hospital first” Alex said and looked at me and that was when they could spare a second to look at me as well.
“Who’s she?” One of the men asked but Alex didn’t say anything immediately as he just [email protected]£ up to me and helped me stand.
“She’s my sister’s nanny” he told them as he supported me to walk to one of the cars.
He wra-pped his hands around my back and helped me leap.
“Alex?” One of the men called as we were about going into the car.
They looked surprised and it seems Alex knew what was on their minds.
“You…You can drive with me” one of them said and Alex turned slightly to look at him.
“Like I said, I nee-d to get her to a hospital” he replied and entered into the car with me.
I shivered in the car, but this time around, I’m not so sure it was from the cold weather.
I think it’s a result of everything that’s happened.
Could this be an illusion?
The driver and a guard sat at the front seat and took off and two other cars followed us behind.
Alex and I were sitting next to each other and I still couldn’t believe it.
But, this was the same guy that had taken a different car on our way here because he didn’t want to be close to me.
How did this even happen?
I can’t believe it.
I turned and stared into his face, trying to comprehend the whole thing.
He was staring throu-gh the window, but knowing I had been staring at him for a long time, he turned and also looked at me and my heart skipped.
“is there something wrong?” He asked and I shook my head and stared away, gulping nervously.

(A night to remember…)
By: Faith Lucky.
I sat on the hospital be-d with Alex and the doctor standing in front of me.
The doctor was writing down some prescriptions in his notebook, while Alex stood facing him.
The doctor had attended to my leg and it had been bandaged and I felt better now.
“Just get her these medicines and she’ll be up and doing within the twi-nkle of an eye. The injury wasn’t too serious” the doctor said as-suringly as he gave the list to Alex.
“Okay” Alex replied simply and looked at me.
“Let’s go” he said and started towards the door.
I climbe-d down from the be-d and hoped I’d be able to walk.
I took a step and felt a little pain.
But it was just a little and wasn’t as severe as it was before.
With this, I’ll think I’ll be perfectly fine pretty soon.
“Thank you doctor” I said to the doctor and he smiled and supported me to the door.
Alex had alre-ady left the room.
“Take care of yourself, okay?” The doctor said and I nodded and left the room.
I walked slowly and met Alex at the car.
“Uhm…Sir” I called as we sat together in the car.
He didn’t look at me and just focused on his phone.
“Thanks a lot” I said, but he still didn’t show any reaction.
He connected his headphones and plugging them into his ears, he rested his head on the seat head and closed his eyes.
“You’re welcome” he finally said with his eyes still closed and that sounded divine to me at that moment.
I smiled lightly and leaned my head on the window as the driver took off.
We entered into the sitting room and met everyone there – the loverboys, Molly and the house servants.
But Mrs Tristan was yet to return.
They called with relief as we walked in.
Molly ran to me immediately.
“Nanny what happened to you? Were you hurt?” She asked as she looked at my bandaged knee.
“Don’t worry about me baby. I’m fine” I replied with a smile.
“We’ve been worried sick about you, Alex” Daniel said.
“We thought something bad mightve happened. It’s a good thing you’re safe”.
“And you Jeanne. What happened to your leg? Is it a result of the riot?” Carl asked.
“Yes sir. But it’s getting healed up now. Sir Alex took me to a doctor alre-ady” I replied as he stared at the leg.
“Sorry about that, Jeanne” Malcolm said and I nodded with a light smile.
“And you, Alex; were you hurt?” Carl asked and Alex t©uçhed his forehead.
“As you can see, I’m fine” he replied in a cheerless tone.
“I’m glad you’re okay, nanny” Molly said.
“I was so worried about you. Here; I kept your phone safe for you”.
she brou-ght out the phone from her pocket and gave it to me and I brushed her hair with my palm.
Just then, Ambrose [email protected]£ running down the stairs.
Surprisingly to everyone, he ran pas-s Alex and [email protected]£ to me.
He barked at my feet and li-cked my legs.
You promised to keep our secret safe.
but you’re putting me in trouble.
Everyone was stunned as he pla-yed around me.
“What’s the secret nanny?” Molly asked.
“How did you get Ambrose to like you?”
I gulped nervously and looked at Alex and he was staring back at me.
I’m pretty sure he was suspicious alre-ady.
Then he [email protected]£ up to where I was and took Ambrose from the floor.
A call [email protected]£ into his phone immediately.
“Hello?” he said on the phone as he started climbing the stairs with Ambrose in his hands.
“We’re fine now, mum. There’s nothing to worry about”
I watched him as he climbe-d the stairs and finally got out of sight. .
I took in a de-ep breath and stared at the floor.
“I think you should take some rest, Jeanne. Come on; I’ll accompany you to your room” Carl said and tried coming close to me, but Molly got in the way.
“Don’t worry, Carl. I’ll do it” she said and wra-pped her tiny hands around my [email protected]!st.
I and the loverboys laughed.
“Let’s go nanny” she said and we climbe-d the stairs together and went into my room.
“Do you nee-d me to get something for you?” She asked as I la-id on the be-d and I smiled and t©uçhed her cheeks.
“Don’t worry, baby. I’m fine” I replied and she nodded and took my phone.
“Can I [email protected] with your phone, plea-se?” She asked in an endearing tone.
“Sure” I replied and unlocked it for her and she started pla-ying a fashion game.
I la-id on the be-d and tired getting some sleep. I was so exhausted.
Not long after, I heard someone knocking on the door and Molly went to check it out.
“It’s the chef, nanny.” She turned back to me and said and I opened my eyes.
“Evans?” I muttered and she nodded.
Then, I sat up.
“Uhm…let him in” I said and she opened the door wi-de and he walked in.
He had an apron on.
“Jeanne” he called as he drew near and stood in front of me.
“Hi Evans” I said.
“How’re you feeling now?” He asked and I nodded.
I was still curious to know why he was in my room.
“Uhm…Jeanne; there’s a little problem” he said and I flin-ched.
“A problem?” I asked and he nodded.
“You see, I know you nee-d some rest, but…”
He paused and looked at Molly who was standing at the door, staring at us.
Then, he sat on the be-d and leaned forward.
“Sir Alex’s asked me to make his coffee” he said in a whisper and I was startled.
Gosh! I thought it was something extra ordinarily serious.
“Oh!” I remarked.
“Is that so?”
I hesitated for a while.
“Okay then. Let’s go to the kitchen” I told him and he helped me stand from the be-d.
“I’ll be right back, baby. I nee-d to get something from the kitchen” I told her as we walked out of the room.
I followed him to the kitchen and helped him make the coffee.
I really hope we don’t get found out soon.
“Thanks sweetie” he said excitedly as I rounded up the coffee.
“You’re welcome, Evans. Now don’t forget you have someone to share your salary with” I told him as I headed for the door and he laughed.
On my way to my room, I ran into one of the loverboys – Daniel.
“Hey” he called with a surprised stare, holding a glas-s of wine.
“What the hell are you doing all here alone? You should be in your room, resting. You don’t nee-d to stress your leg” he said and I cleared my throat and itched my head.
Is loverboy Daniel really being concerned?
“I Uhm. ..I just went to get something from the kitchen, sir. I’ll be on my way now” I replied.
“Sure. Be careful” he said and walked away and I turned to look at him as he did.
Maybe Evans was right after all. Maybe he was right when he said Daniel would change when he gets to know me.
I smiled and continued to my room and when I got in, I found Molly alre-ady slee-ping on the be-d.
I won’t be able to carry her to her room now.
Maybe she’d have to sleep in my room for today.
I adjusted her to lie properly on the be-d and I la-id close to her and covered our bodies with the duvet.
I smiled as I recalled everything that had happened between Alex and I today.
I wish I can make it happen again.
It’s a night I’ll never forget.
