Chapter Nine

Alexa

I ran my hands through my hair and pulled. “What do you mean she escaped?”

Easton paused.

HELLO?” I snapped. “What the hell happened?”

“Well… She threw something through the window and jumped out of it. It was crazy,” explained Easton.

“Easton,” I said in a syrupy sweet voice. “I thought we talked about the importance of keeping her in the house!”

“I know. I’m sorry, Lex,” he apologized. “But don’t worry. She’s here now and she won’t be going anywhere any time soon.”

“Are you sure?” I added with a little bit too much venom in my voice. Calm it, Lex! You can’t risk losing him. “I mean, are you sure you don’t need any help? I’m coming back this weekend, but I could make it sooner, if you needed me to?”

“No, I got it,” said Easton quietly. He paused. “We’re going to let her go this weekend, right?”

A smile crept up on the corners of my lips. “Of course.” More like of course NOT!

He exhaled a sigh of relief.

“I miss you,” I said, trying to distract him from the situation. “I can’t wait to see you again.”

His voice, full of emotion, cracked as he replied, “I miss you too, Lex.”
