Xavier's Pov:

Lunch went by pretty good. Roger and Martha keep on teasing Grace and she just keep blushing the whole lunch. We were now in the living room.

They did not talk about business but small things that they liked. If this lunch were to held at Rick and Samantha place i was damn sure that Rick would have end up asking me about my shares in my company. This man is really a gold digger. I still could not believe he was ready to let Grace marry a stranger.

What if it wasn't me who had make this contract first? I would have never meet Grace and her life would have been spoiled. Rick did not give a damn care about her choices.

"Hey you okay?"

I snapped out of my thought and found Grace looking at me.

"Yeah. I am good." I said.

"You sure? You were looking at the table for more that 5 minutes and you were fowning.. Is there something that you did not like for lunch? I can make an-"

"Relax babe. I am fine. I was thinking about some stuffs and no the lunch was perfect." I said and she nodded.

She turned back to her movie and continued to watch it.

"Hey Sweet pie i am going to the grocery store do you want anything?" Asked Roger as he came in.

"Hmm i dont know what i want." She said fowning and i chuckled.

"Why dont you go with him and choose what to buy?" I asked her and she nodded.

"That a good idea." She said and stood up.

"Ok then. And you Xavier do you want anything?" He asked and i shake ny head no.

"No i am-" i was saying but Grace imterrupted me.

"I will choose something for him cause he always say no." She said and i playfully glared at her. She shrugged going toward Roger.

"Martha we are going." Said Roger leaving the living room.

"Ok!" She yelled from the kitchen. Once they were gone i felt bored. I already watch this movie many times. I stood up and made my way were Martha was. She was preparing a cake which was almost done.

"Wow it beautiful." I said and she looked at me smiling.

"It is isn't it? Its Grace favourite cake." She said putting the chocolate on top.

"You always make cakes for her?" I asked sitting at the counter.

"Yeah since child she love my homemade cakes. She hated when we would buy cakes at the supermarket. On her birthday i would always make it myself or else she wouldn't eat it." She said smiling.

"She spent most of her time with you and Roger right?" I asked lowly and she nodded.

"Roger and i did not have any kid. When Grace was born her dad and mom told us to look after her. We gladly took her in our care. As she grow up she became more attached to us and so were we." She said sighing. I was glad that they looked after her when her parents left her.

"She really loved you and Roger more." I said and she nodded.

"We treated her like our own kid. I will always remember when she first call us mom and dad. We were so happy." She said smiling.

"She deserve more than what she got." I murmured but i guess she heard it as she nodded.

"You know Xavier. Roger and i know it was you who did the contract." She said looking at me and my eyes widened.

"H-how did you know about that?" I asked and she chuckled.

"Do you really think Roger will let his baby princess go at a place with a stranger?" She said.

"He searched on me?" I asked and she nodded.

"He did and he approved you the first time itself. He was happy you were the one that did that contract. He was very furious with Rick as he accepted immediately though." She explained and i nodded.

"That part even i was angry." I said and she nodded.

"We know you will keep her good just give her some time and she will see it." She said and i nodded.

"Dont worry about her. I will made sure she get what she deserve. Even if it takes times i will wait." I said honestly. I wanted her and only her. Sure that i can wait for her.

"That good. She is lucky" she said as she placed some strawberry on the cake.

"Martha will you like to do shopping for Grace wedding dress with my mom?" I asked and she looked at me wide eyed.

"W-what no. Samantha is the one who should go with your mom-"

"Samantha wont go and am sure about that as she does not give a damn care about what Grace want and even my mom found her like a bitch and hate her. If you go both Grace and my mom will be happy." I said and she sighed.

"Ok i will go." She said and i chulcked.

"Good and please let it be a secret for Grace." I said and she nodded smiling.

"When are you thinking to put the wedding?" She asked.

"Hmm that i dont know. I wanted to take it slow with Grace till she was at ease with everything but Rick want the business to mix and want us to get married soon. So i guess the wedding will be in two weeks time or three weeks." I shrugged and she nodded.

"Dont worry Xavier. If you have any doubt just talk to her. She will understand why you are doing it and will support you." She said and i nodded.

"Thanks for the talk." I said.

"Its ok but may this remained between us." She said and i nodded.

"We are home!" Yelled Grace.

Wow i did not even heard the door opened. She walked in with a lot of bags Roger following her.

"Oh my god did you two bought the whole store?" Asked Martha shocked. Grace and Roger looked at each other and shrugged.

"No. Only half." They said together and i burst out laughing. They said it so seriously that even Martha chulcked.

"Count on these two for this type of things." Murmured Martha shaking her head.
