Chapter 709 Jerk

Zeke had gingerly but with much relief, placed Alexis back into the baby's mother's – Abi's – arms and then turned to face Alex.

"We'll be leaving now." He said and with a wide grin, Alex patted his back and whispered in his ear.

"Next time I see you, I hope you won't be this stoic anymore. And most of all… to be in love." He then waggled his brows at Zeke.

Zeke's face remained deadpan. "I hope your son won't cause you too much trouble. He's your son after all."

"Well, if one day he ends up becoming uncontrollable and you still remain that the stoic man that you are and still unmarried and without any children, I will just ship him off to you to settle." Alex smirked at him, and Zeke's gaze sharpened again. "You're their uncle now. And uncles, especially the unmarried and childless ones, have the great and honoured responsibility of taking care of their nieces and nephews whenever they run into troubles. Am I right, Lucas?" Alex winked at Lucas and Lucas agreed with Alex by nodding his head enthusiastically.

When the two men finally left the hospital, Alex returned to Abi's side.

He sat next to her. "Are you feeling alright, my love?" he asked, his voice mellow and soothing – a complete contrast with the playful tone he took with Zeke earlier.

Abi smiled. "I'm fine. I think we should be able to go home now, Alex."

"Are you sure?"

"Very sure."

"Alright, my love. We'll go home very soon." He said and kissed Abi's forehead lovingly. "Thank you, Abi for making me the happiest man in this world. I love you." He then ensured the twins were secure in their bassinets beside Abi's bed before going off happily to settle the discharge procedures, eager to head home with his newly expanded family.

Last night.

Alicia had a hard time tracking down Zeres' whereabouts as that man had made sure to hide himself so well that no amount of summoning on the crystal ball could give her hints on where she would be able to find him at all. He had grown so powerful to hide himself from her and even from Lilith.

Thankfully, Alicia had found Kyle while looking for Zeres. Even though she could not communicate with the young man, Alicia did not want to read the young man's mind. So, she opted to go through the memories of other guards who were with him. And that was how she had found out about Zeres' hideout.

When she arrived at the place, Alicia was amazed. She found herself in a luxurious apartment located on the highest floor of the building.

Somehow, Alicia did not expect that Zeres would be found living in such a modern place with conveniences and luxuries. Was Ezekiel the one who gave him this apartment to live in? Or was it his choice to get this place himself? She had somehow expected Zeres to be living in an ancient house which was only slightly modernized, but never in her wildest dreams would she expect him to be found in a very modern one like this. But where was he?

Alicia was standing by the floor to ceiling window overlooking the large and lively city when she heard the door to the penthouse swung open.

She whipped her head back. Only to find Zeres entering the door… only that there was

someone else with him. It was a beautiful human girl.

Alicia was frozen on the spot as she blinked and watched the two of them enter the living hall, slightly stumbling as they walked.

The girl was clinging tightly onto his arm while Zeres looked as though he was drunk.

Before they could even close the door, the girl immediately grabbed Zeres and kissed him, causing Alicia's eyes to widen. The girl was so feisty that she resembled a hungry female wolf despite her outwardly delicate beauty. She pushed Zeres against the wall as she kissed him, and her fingers then started to undo the buttons on his shirt.

However, Zeres caught her wrists before she could even undo the top button. His eyes which were dazed before, were now suddenly sharp when he looked down at the girl. "Not tonight," he snapped, his voice harder and colder than Alicia could ever remember it being.

But the girl was unfazed. She pulled away gently and smiled at him invitingly. "Oh, can you really resist me, handsome?" she crooned, her voice seductive and utterly vixen-like before she started to undress herself in front of him, hoping to seduce him into continuing what she had initiated.

Zeres closed his eyes and pinched the space between his brows in undisguised frustration. Then he opened his eyes and spoke brusquely to the girl. "Fine, since you want to be used by me that bad…" he said and in an instant, he grabbed the girl.

"Face the wall," he growled out and the girl who looked like she was already drooling for him, bit her lower lip and turned around obediently. She even looked as though she could not wait anymore as she stuck out her bottom and rubbed it against Zeres' crotch.

Zeres only stood behind her and calmly started to unbuckle his belt.

"Hurry, handsome… ah, I can't wait anymore…" the girl panted out, but Zeres did not look like he had heard anything she said. As he was about to unbutton his pants, he suddenly halted.

All of a sudden, Zeres' head whipped around.

Alicia who had been standing frozen by the large window and was about to take her leave and disappear, froze in her tracks the moment their eyes met. Oh my, did he notice her presence there?!

Alicia did not dare move, trying to conceal and minimize her presence as much as possible. She was extremely embarrassed and strangely aggravated with the scene that she had seen just now.

"Leave." She heard him bark out irritably. Was he telling her to leave? Somehow, Alicia felt angry.

"Huh?" The girl said. "Why did you stop –"

"I said leave. Now!" His voice thundered and the girl was terrified. Alicia then realized that she was not the one Zeres had ordered to leave. It was that indecent girl that he was referring to.

The girl gritted her teeth. "Jerk!" she yelled at him before grabbing her handbag that was thrown on the floor and then stormed out of the door.

As soon as the door was closed, Zeres run his fingers through his hair and then let out a harsh breath.

Before Alicia could determine why she was feeling happy when Zeres shooed that immoral girl off, she was given another shock. "I know you're there, Alicia." Zeres' voice rang out, startling Alicia who was about to make her escape.
