“Maxine??” I called in shock.
I scoffed and itched my eyes to be sure I wasn’t dreaming or imagining things.
Why the hell is Maxine coming out of the car???
I don’t seem to understand.
Could she be the veiled dancer????
No; no; this is not possible.
I watched in confusion as she walked into the second car and the driver took off afterwards.
Definitely, I’m gonna see the end of this.
I started my own car and started trailing after them, still trying as much as possible to maintain the distance.
I followed them for a long time and the car arrived at Noah’s mansion.
It was Noah’s house?!
Then, that only means it is indeed Maxine!!
Maxine is staying with Noah! She’s the veiled dancer.
I sent my fingers into my hair and ruffled it.
Now, I understand. Now, everything has become clear to me.
She’s the veiled dancer.

And that’s her connection with Noah.
No wonder Noah had suddenly picked interest and taken her away from her family
No wonder he stood up for her when actually, she shouldn’t mean a thing to him.
No wonder he’s getting married to her!!
He isn’t just getting married to Maxine, but the crazy Dancer!!
The popular Crazy dancer!
I returned home with Noah after the long ride and all I could think about was taking a shower and going to bed.
“Would you like something to eat?” He asked as we walked into the sitting room and I simply shook my head.
I was about walking away when he suddenly pulled me back by the arm.
“Maxine…what’s wrong?” He asked calmly, giving me a cold stare.
For a moment, I was speechless.
“I’m…I’m fine. Its nothing” I replied with a hard gulp, but he didn’t let me go.
“No, you’re not. Is something bothering you? Please, feel free to tell me about it”.
I lowered my gaze and gulped down my sniffles.
“Your…” I paused and sniffed again.
“Your ex was here this evening, right?
“I…I heard everything. She has a child for you”.
His eyes deemed immediately and I smiled ruefully.
“It’s just that….I’m happy for you two” I added and finally walked
away,going into my room.
I whacked the door close as soon as I got in and went to sit on the bed.
I buried my face in my palms and wept.
Oh! Maxine, I shouldn’t have spilled it out.
I shouldn’t had told him about it. Why did I have to do such, huh?
I wept into my palms but lifted my face when I heard the door opening.
Please, don’t tell me he’s the one.
I looked and discovered he was the one and I sprang on my feet.
“Maxine” he called and came closer but I moved back.
“Please, we need to….”
“No, no, its fine. I…I perfectly understand. I understand if you prefer her. I mean…she’s your…”
“What’re you talking about?” He cut me off with a smirk and that was when I realized i was actually gibbering.
Oh! God, I wasn’t thinking straight. But its the truth.
“Maxine” he called warmly and held my hand.
“I’m sorry, okay? I…I didn’t mean to hurt you. I mean, I had no idea you had eaves dropped on our conversation.
“Audrey’s my ex and no matter what, she’s just my past. It doesn’t mean anything’s gonna change between us.
“Yes – she might be having a child for me, but it doesn’t mean I’ll be going back to her because of it. There are other ways I can handle it, okay? So, don’t get it twisted” he enthused, making me dumbstruck. .
Is he serious?
I stared into his eyes, surprised and he lifted his hand to my face and wiped off my tears.
“I’m sorry” he cooed and I whimpered and hugged him.
He held me close in the hug and after a while, we unlocked.
Should I be convinced?
“I’m…I’m sorry for overreacting. Its just that…”
Before I could finish up my statement, he locked his lips on mine, making my eyes dilate in shock.
I gasped and pushed him away, unable to contend the shock.
I know that wasn’t the first time but, I just didn’t expect it.
“I’m…I’m sorry” I mumbled, apologizing for pushing him away in that manner.
He didn’t say a word but just smiled and reached for my lips again.
He kissed me so roughly and tempestuously that I found it difficult getting a grip of my breath.
I felt like I was drowning.
Drowning in the kiss.
“Noah” I said in a muffled breath when he finally gave me a little break.
I panted heavily as he leaned his head on my shoulder, his hand on my waist.
“Maxine” he called in a whisper, but I was still speechless.
He pierced his fingers a little deeper into my waist and next, I found him
taking me to the bed.
