The following morning, at Lafferty Consolidated. “What do you mean knocked out? Who knocked him out?”, Alice asked.

“I don’t know. Someone from Jamie’s party, I guess.”, woman on the phone answered.
“I’m not paying you to guess. Find out who it was.”, Alice said and hung up. So now I don’t have the pictures to publicly humiliate her. Now that I think about it, maybe it’s better this way. That would humiliate me, too. I’ve got to find another way to break that relationship and put a stop to this lesbian phase of hers. She must be stupid to think that I don’t know about that Athena girl. I’ll stop it. Jamie must marry a perspective young man and be a worhty heir of my legacy. Meanwhile, at the hospital...

"Well, that went well.", Alex said.

"We managed to change our dirty party clothes and bring that guy to the hospital and look completely innocent. Yeah, that went well.", he continued.
“Okay, so, the doctor said that he’ll be just fine. And he doesn’t remember anything, so that’s a plus. AND the doctor believed us that we just found him in the hallway. So, everything's gonna be fine, right?”, Jamie asked.

“I’m a bit confused, you know.”, Alex blurted.
“You have a girlfriend, alright. You don’t want anyone to know, that’s also fine. But you throw a huge party and make out with Athena in front of all those people. I’m just confused.”, he continued.

“The people at the party were all my and Athena’s friends. They would never tell.”, Jamie sighed.

“But…they know. I know.”, Alex said.
“I’m not hiding from the world. Anyone can know, I’m not ashamed of my preferences. I just can’t have my mother know.”, Jamie said.

“Why?”, Alex asked.

“Because she has full control. She owns an apartment we live in. I rebelled once and she made me pay the rent for it. My tips from the café were barely covering it, so I had to find a roommate.”, Jamie said.
“So your mother is filthy rich.”, Alex concluded.

“Yes. And she wants me to take over once she retires. I don’t want it. I’m not interested in leading a company. So I rebelled. I refused to study economics and I chose to study Art, because that’s what I like. And she’s paying for it because she thinks that’s just temporarily, that I’ll transfer to economics when I’m ready.”, she said.

“I see. So you’re working at the café to pay the rent and to sustain yourself?”, Alex asked.
“Just for the rent. She’s still giving me money to sustain myself, but she’ll stop that too once she finds out about Athena, and I can’t get a reliable job ‘till I finish college. No gallery wants an amateur artist.”, Jamie sighed.

“That’s…”, Alex started.
JAMIE! JAMIE! OVER HERE! “Oh God. What if they overheard our conversation?”, Jamie panicked.

“I’m sorry, Alex.”, she added.
... ... A few moments later...

“Okay, they left. I…I’m sorry.”, Jamie shruged.

“We’ll talk about it at home, now I really need to go to work.”, Alex said.

“When were you supposed to be there?”, Jamie asked.

“Thirty minutes ago. I hope Kayla’s covering for me.”, Alex said.
I’m here, I made it. Let’s see…am exactly 45 minutes late. Maybe nobody noticed. “WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? YOUR FIRST WEEK HERE AND YOU’RE ALREADY LATE? AND WHAT ARE YOU WEARING?”, Kayla yelled.

“I’m sorry, it wasn’t my fault. Am I in trouble?”, Alex asked.
“No. I covered for you, I said you were getting us breakfast because Tori wasn’t feeling well. You should thank her too for faking it.”, Kayla said.

“What are you wearing?”, she repeated.
“Thank you, and I’ll thank Tori too and…I don’t know what I’m wearing, it’s the first thing I grabbed this morning.”, Alex said.

"Wait...who's Tori?", he added.

"Our secretary?", Kayla replied.

"I thought her name was Anna.", Alex said, confused.

"Tori Annabeth Hammond.", Kayla said.

"Oh.", Alex said.

"Oh.", Kayla smirked.

“Alice is out for today so you can stay in those clothes, but, never again, Alex. There are some rules here and Alice wants them respected.”, she added.

“Got it. Thank you.”, Alex smiled.
“Hey, Tori, thanks for covering me. Or should I call you Anna?”, Alex asked.

“Um…it was nothing, Mr. Parker. It was a rough night, after all. And both names are fine.”, Tori blushed.

“So it was you at the party last night. I wasn’t really sure.”, Alex said.
“Yes, I was there.”, Tori smiled.

I wonder if she knows what happened with that paparazzi guy…

“So, um, you’re a friend of Jamie’s?”, Alex asked.

“I know her, yes, but I’m Athena’s best friend.”, Tori explained.
“I see. Well, did you have a good time?”, Alex tried to pry a bit more.

“I did. But I left early.”, Tori smiled.

“Now that’s responsible. I should follow your example.”, Alex smiled.

“I’m just not a night owl, that’s all.”, Tori said.

“Alright then, I’m gonna go, I have tons of work to do. Thanks again, Tori.”, Alex said.
“You’re welcome, Mr. Parker.”, she smiled.

“And please, call me Alex.”, he added.

“You’re welcome, Alex.”, Tori corrected herself.

Later that day...

“What a day. Thank God it’s almost over.”, Alex said as they were leaving the building.

“Get here on time tomorrow, okay?”, Kayla asked.

“I will. Hey Kayla?”, Alex asked.
“Let me take you out to dinner, I owe you for today.”, he added.

“Well...I guess that’d be fine. Okay, sure.”, Kayla said.

“Good, let me know when you’re free.”, Alex smiled.

“Alright. See you in the morning.”, Kayla smiled.
"Hey.", Alex said.

“Hey, I’m really sorry about what I did earlier.”, Jamie said.

“It’s fine, I know why you did it.”, Alex said.

“My mother already called me to tell me that she couldn’t be happier to finally see me on the right track.”, Jamie sighed.
“But you’re in trouble now, aren’t you?”, Alex asked.

“Kind of, yes.”, Jamie said.

“But I’ll think of something.”, she added.

I’m probably gonna regret this., Alex thought.
“We could pretend we’re dating whenever we’re out in public.”, Alex said.

“Really? You’d do that for me?”, Jamie said.

“I know what it means to be under parent’s pressure. I came here to escape from that.”, Alex sighed.

“Thank you. I…I don’t know what to say.”, Jamie smiled with relief.
"HOW DARE YOU?", Athena asked angrily. “Athena don’t, he was just helping us!”, Jamie yelled. “Too late.”, Alex said, holding his hand over his soon-to-be blue eye.

It's surely been too long! I've really been missing your stories... Finally!!!

About the story...I'm not sure if I'm cheering for her to be bisexual or not. xD Because this looks like a beginning of wonderful friendship. And I don't like Athena very much - I think she's bitchy. -.- Aaaaaand, I don't know if I'm the only one paying attention but - there are no guys at all. xD Just Alex and paparazzi. I don't really care, but poor Alex with all that women. xD

Again, welcome back and please, PLEASE, hurry up with the next chapter (and the next one, and the next one xD). Your readers are starving. \:D
