Chapter 29

Zunnie's mood was through the roof sitting at her favorite restaurant with Alex . Having him around always made her feel at ease . She took this opportunity to pry into who exactly was the heir of the Zi family .

"So, Mr . Zi, what about, what do you do?"

"Hmm, I run the family business, Arch . deZIgns…"

"Architecture, sounds fun . Do you like it?"

"Mhm…" Alex nodded and continued eating the chicken satay with peanut sauce appetizer the server rested on the table .

The chicken satay was the best Alex had ever hand and eating it together with Zunnie made the taste more appealing .

After they waited and chatted for twenty minutes, the dishes Zunnie usually ate were placed on the table . The delicious aroma accompanying each dish, filled their booth . The evenings special was Thai green chicken curry… and her usual happened to be Som Tam (papaya salad), Pad Thai and Tom Yum soup .

A mouth-watering Zunnie picked up Alex's plate and put some of each dish on it . She then served herself . The two enjoyed themselves and ate till they were full then left the restaurant .

As the got closer to Lake-view Alex felt that the time together had been too short . He, quickly changed the route .

"What are you doing? This isn't the way back?" Zunnie protested .

"I heard there is a really nice place close by and people can see the stairs clearly . I've always wanted to go there . " Alex explained even though he had gone there many times to enjoy the night view .

"O . . okay . " Since she loved the night sky, she looked forward to it .

When they arrived, they were the only ones there . Zunnie got out of the vehicle and looked up at the star filled luminescent night sky . She was in awe of how amazing it appeared .

"It you come here in the summer, you can see a lucid view of the milky way . " Alex broke the silence . Zunnie had been so astonished, she forgot she wasn't alone .

"Mhm, I love it!" She screamed as loud as she could, then tilted her head back to look up to the sky again . She spun around in circles with her arms stretched out to her sides . The was the best night sky she had seen .

She giggled and stopped whirling when she became slightly dizzy . Zunnie stooped, clutched her knees and glanced up to where Alex stood staring at the night sky .

She pulled out her phone, took a picture of him and sent him a text with the picture at the end read,

"Alex, thank you, for this ten-billion-dollars dinner!"

Alex did not have his phone, so he was oblivious to the fact that Zunnie had messaged him .

Zunnie Bai and Alexander Zi watched the night sky for fifteen minutes then drove back to their condos . Both unaware that they were silently and slowly falling for each other .

On the way back, each were immersed in their own thoughts and the drive had been a quiet one . When he parked the Volvo Alex handed Zunnie her key and walked to the elevator .

"Thank you for finally having dinner with me . " Alex huskily said . This was the first time had so much fun with a woman .

"You're welcome . " Zunnie flashed him a sweet and honest smiled .

Seeing her smile, Alex genuinely wanted to pull her into his arms and kiss her passionately . His hand hanging at his side reached over to touch hers but her fought the urge and clenched his fist to control his desire .

The elevator reached the third floor and they got out . Neither wanted to say good night as they both wanted to stay with each other a little longer .

"Do you…" they spoke at the same time .

"You first," Alex hurriedly say .

Oh, uhhmm…w…would you…like to…uhm…watch a move?" Zunnie wavered .

"Mhm" Alex nodded his head relieved she had asked .

"O…okay…" She smiled, then then both walked back to her condo . She nervously entered a lock code to open the door .

Her heart had been pounding beneath her breast the moment the entered the elevator . She had no idea what had gotten into her, but she really like the times she was with Alex Zi .

They agreed on The Tourist, an action and romance movie starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie . Zunnie prepared some snacks and poured Alex and herself a glass of wine respectively .

Alex was enjoying the movie; but would occasionally look to Zunnie's side of the couch from the corner of his eyes . She looked poised sitting next to him . He really wanted to hold her in his arms and unwittingly blurted out…

"Can I hold you?"
