"Thank you. It was lovely." my heart clenched at this man. Never in a million years  would I expect someone like him will associate with someone like me. Pure bliss.

His wealth still overwhelms me sometimes but it is not something I look forward to when I see him. His presence alone can complete my day and that's why I get giddy every time I look at him.

"You don't have to thank me. You know I'll do anything for you just to see you smile." he grabs my hand then kissed it like a true gentleman he is. 

Our moment was interrupted when someone screamed my name. Just then, I was completely and utterly terrified of that voice. The voice that brings chills to my bones and I was hoping to never hear it again.

"Athena!" I gripped Max hands and looked at him. He looked calm but his eyes tells me otherwise. 

"Tsk.tsk.tsk. Are you whoring around babe?" Smiling sarcastically he then turned to Max "And who might this be? One of your fuckers? Might I add you chose the best baby." 

I was afraid but boy was I seething. How dare he calls me a whore! "Don't call me something I'm not Joshua." 

"Why? Oh, let me introduce myself. I'm Joshua Carter." he held out his hands for Max to shake but Max didn't let go of my hands and was busy staring at Joshua intensely.

"I don't shake hands with men who disgusts me."

"Max, let's just go." I pulled him away but he wouldn't budge the slightest.

He whispered at me while looking intensely at Joshua, "Go ahead and go inside the car. I'll be right there with in a few."

"But-" 

"Hush now love, I'll go ahead and talk to him then we'll go home. Go now and lock the doors." I tried to refuse but he just smiled at me warmly then I did what he wants me to do.

"Athena! I'm not done talking yet!" He tried to grab me but-

"Don't you dare lay a finger on her or I'll break each and every one of them till you have no fingers left." I shivered. I never seen or heard this side of him but at the same time it made me all hot and bothered..again. Not glancing back, I walked to his car that was now parked at a corner then went inside. 

"Who do you think you are motherfucker?!!" Joshua was furious. But Max was livid. 

"I am someone you don't want to mess with. I know all about you. The things you do, the people you talk, even the food you eat. Touch her or any one of her family and you'll face my wrath. Think about this before you do this again and I sure do hope you'll listen." 

Good thing, he kept his mouth shut and walked away but not before uttering "You'll regret this."

Max was not fazed by this and just smirked while still standing on the same spot watching him walk away. You don't know me yet Joshua.

"I'm sorry. I didn't know he was going to be there." Max grab my hands that was clutching my bag then kissed it. 

"You don't have to apologize love. we'll talk about it when you are ready. Let's get you home now." We drove back silently and it was not awkward in any way. I will tell him soon when the time comes. 

"Yes, let's go home." I pecked his cheeks and felt warmth all over. Thank you Max..
