Soft gentle light fills the room, coaxing me from deep sleep to wakefulness. Stretching out and opening my eyes, I feel a rush of panic engulf me when the first thing I see is Alexander fast asleep beside me. It's surprising that he's still in bed normally when I wake up in the morning he's gone but this time he's here and facing me.

Slipping out of bed, I find his white shirt on the floor and shrug it on rolling the sleeves to my elbows, noticing that he had left his laptop out and that there are some stray papers lying on the vanity table tells me that he had some work done after I went to sleep. I make my way to the bathroom as quickly and as silently physically possible, once inside I quickly shut the door to give myself some privacy.

Splashing some cold water on my face, I end up staring at myself in the gigantic mirror above the sink in total shock at what I see staring back at me. I can't exactly pinpoint it but I look different? But I definitely feel different though and a little sore if I'm honest also my muscles feel overworked too.

Resting my weight on the sink, I scrutinise my appearance one more, noticing now that my hair is a mess with unimaginable tangles and weird curled parts, trying to bring order to the chaos with my fingers, I fail miserably and give up in less than a minute, I'll just stick it in a bun or something until I can get Adam or one of the guys to help me comb the mess out.

Heading out back into the room a thought hits me as I open the door, Did I explain the phone call on Friday? Oh, crab...I didn't...how am I going to bring that up now? I want to slam my head against the wall right now. How could I have forgotten to tell him about that?

Deciding that I should probably get some food in my system first to help me think of a way out of my mess, I take out some underwear and a pair of jeans to change into so that I can decently go to Seven Eleven to buy cup noodles but I barely got my leg into the panty hole when Alexander's phone buzzes on the vanity table and me being me make a mad dash for so it that the annoying buzzing doesn't wake him up.

"Hello?" I whisper into the phone holding the phone with my shoulder as I hop around to wear my underwear. "Alexander is sleeping right now...can you call him back in an hour or so?"

"Hey! It's Janie!" Theo screeches loudly from the other end, clearly excited that it's me who picked up the phone and not his boss. "When Mr I-have-shit-up-my-ass wakes up, come down and join us at the buffet breakfast. It's a man's food heaven down here."

Leave it to Theo to make my situation worse.

"Will do, Theo, " I sigh into the phone transferring it to my hand not bothering to think a way out of it, rolling my eyes exasperatedly at him. "Bye."

Looks l

y system and I feel proud that they see us together for some reason.

Yeah...this is going to be a lot of firsts for me...

Upon entering the restaurant Theo's voice screams out to us above the loud clinking and chatter of the room and all eyes turn to us, Okay forget what I said about my pride to be next to Alexander, I want to hide behind him or something right now.

"I'm really going to kill that man one day and I definitely won't regret it, " Alexander mutters, glaring at the oblivious Theo as he waves at us from the table or rather tables my brothers are occupying. "Hope you don't have any objections."

"None at all, " I mumble against the back of his shirt as I get some suspicious looks from the people we pass by. "Everyone's staring at you now."

"Us, baby, " he corrects me as we reach the table, plastering on a fake smile, he whacks Theo at the back of his head so hard that he face plants into his plate of dim sum. "Idiot."

Since there's only one seat left, Alexander sits on it and me, being really too shy to ask the nearby strangers sitting at tables if they have an empty seat, just sit on his knee. Not making any sound of protest, Alexander drapes his arm loosely around my waist while his other arm rests on the table.

"I hope you guys have a good reason for asking Janette to wake me up, " He growls, mainly glaring at Theo who is rubbing his head, wincing terribly. "I didn't sleep much so get straight to the point. How was the auction? Did we get all the children?"

Oh yeah, the child auction last night...hold on...my brothers were there too...'Did we get all the children?'....oh my god...does that mean... Turning to look at Alexander and my brothers whose eyes are darting wildly from me to Alexander, I connect the dots before Alexander can eat his words.

Holy crab, they work for Cosa Nostra!
