"So, you finally found him?" Lex asked, Maximino's closest cousin, who is also his manager.
They are currently inside Maximino's dressing room and he is reading his script for the next and last scene that he's gonna shoot for the day.
He didn't want to leave Nexus but he can't ditch his job either.
He really wanted to finish this shoot as soon as possible so that he could go home early and be with Nexus again.
"Yes." He replied to Lex as he reads his script for his next scene.
"And you mated with him even though you knew he would hate it?" Lex asked for the second time.
"Yes." Maximino immediately answered again.
"Then you forced him to come and live with you?" She asked again for the third time.
"Yes." He answered again.
"I see." Lex said then she nodded and stared at him. "Tell me, Max. From the scale of 1-10, how stupid are you?" Lex asked again.
Maximino finally looked at Lex while raising one of his brow. "What do you mean by that?" He asked with his forehead furrowed.
Lex shook her head before she sat down on the sofa across from him. "Dumb or stupid. Where one are you?"
"Insult me again, woman and I'll fucking rip that ugly mouth of yours." Maximino said, his tone is dangerous and threatening.
But that did not seem to have any effect on her cousin. Instead she just kept on talking. "You know what? You are very smart in so many things. But when it comes to love, you are fucking stupid." Lex said, not caring how Maximino would react.
Maximino was about to throw the script he was holding when Lex raised both of her hands. "Hey, hey, hey! Don't you dare throw that at me. The scriptwriters worked hard for that and then you're just gonna throw it? Also, what's wrong with what I said? I am just telling the truth. Isn't it true that when it comes love, you are nothing but plain stupid? I mean, come on! That is not the right way of taming someone! In what you are doing, he will only hate you even more."
"Then, what do you want me to do? Let him continue working at that bar and let those assholes touch him and fuck him over and over again? Do you want me to let him lose him again? Hell no! I've waited long enough so don't expect me to wait again. I already found him so I will never ever let him go again." He said with determination.
"But if you keep on doing this, he really may not forgive you forever. Maximino, let me just remind you, you are the one who is in the wrong here. And you, trying to control him and his life, as well as imprisoning him, won't help you to get his trust and forgiveness. I bet you haven't even apologized to him yet." Lex said as she rolled her eyes.
Maximino tossed the script then wiped his face with his own palm. Frustration can be written all over his face.
Lex just shook her head. She knew he hit the spot.
"Seriously, Max. I know that we, alphas, are dominant. But in the situation you are in right now, dominance isn't needed. All you have to do is be humble and be a little bit more patient. Remember that you are the one who's at fault, it's you who wanted to be with him, it's you who wanted his attention and his heart."
"But how? How will I do that?" He asked frustratingly.
Maximino came from a wealthy and powerful family. Everyone favors him. Everyone who knew him, praises him and follows him, like his words are absolute. They always give him what he wants, without him even asking. He's used to getting whatever or whoever he wants. But this is the first time that he wanted someone so much but couldn't get it no matter what he does. Instead, that certain someone just ran away from him. So somehow, he understands him. He doesn't know how to deal with this situation. Heck, he doesn't even know how to say sorry! Ever since they were kids, she has never once heard him apologize to anyone. Adding that he is also an alpha and being a dominant is natural thing to him.
"Then what do I have to do to tame him?" Maximino asked again after a couple of minutes, reason for Lex to get her attention back at him.
Lex sighed. "It's simple." Then she looked into his eyes. "You start by apologizing to him."
Nexus frowned as he looked at Maximino who's deep in thought.
It's already 10 pm and Maximino just got home.
He was lying in bed, still thinking of a plan how he could escape from his abductor when Maximino suddenly entered the room and asked him if they could talk.
So here they are right now, sitting on the sofas across each other.
Minutes have passed but Maximino still does not speak. He seems to be in another dimension and Nexus is starting to lose his patience.
"What? Will you speak or not?" He asked in a pissed tone reason for Maximino to finally turn his attention to him.
He could see the shock and confusion on his face that made his forehead furrow even more.
What's wrong with this idiot? He whispered to himself.
Nexus shook his head before he stood up and turned his back on him. "You know, we're just wasting time here. You'd better take me back to Michael's house and ---"
"I'm sorry." Maximino suddenly said in a low voice but enough for Nexus to hear.
Nexus' ear twitched upon hearing what Maximino said.
Did he hear it correctly? Did he really said sorry? No. That's impossible. Maximino? The high and mighty, Maximino? The prideful Maximino? Saying sorry? No way. That's impossible. That will never happen. Maybe he just misheard. Or maybe his imagination is just playing tricks on him.
He shook his head. "Right. There is no way that this asshole will apologize. No way in hell that he would say that word." He said to himself and laughed a little. "That's impossible to happen ---"
"I said, I'm sorry." Maximino repeated. And by that time, he had amplified his voice, causing its words to become even clearer to Nexus' ears.
He was about to turn around to face him but he immediately stopped when Maximino started talking again. "Honestly, I am not really good at this. I...I've never done this before so please bare with me." He said frustratingly. He also felt the difficulty in its voice. "Look, I...I just... I just want..."
"If you can't do it, then don't. It's not like I am expecting you to apologize to me." He said coldly then he started to take a step towards the closed door of the room.
"No!" Maximino suddenly shouted causing him to stop walking. That surprised the hell out of him!
Then the next thing is he felt him stood up and approached him. He could feel his presence behind him. "I wanted to make things right, Nexus. I...I know I did terrible things to you before, even until now. And that is why I am apologizing to you." Suddenly his voice weakened. "I'm sorry for everything that I did to you before. I'm sorry for all the terrible things that I did to you. I'm sorry for forcing you to come and live with me. I'm sorry for-- - "
"Enough." Nexus, cutting Maximino off.
He turned around to face Maximino. His cold eyes looked into Maximino's eyes. "I told you, I am not expecting you to apologize to me. Also, no matter how many times you apologize, nothing will change. I still hate you and I still do not want to be with you. So please, don't waste my time. Just take me back to Michael." He said coldly and firmly and again, he turned his back on Maximino, which face he couldn't describe.
But before he could take another step, Maximino suddenly grabbed his arm and pulled him, forcing him to face him and look into his face.
Now he can describe the expression he's seeing on it's face. And that is anger. Anger and madness can be clearly seen in Maximino's face.
"Why? Why can't you forgive me? What else should I do for you to accept me?! I already said sorry! Isn't that enough?!" Maximino shouted angrily and loudly.
Bewilderment can be seen in Nexus' eyes as he looked at Maximino's mad face.
He could not believe what he heard from him.
He wanted to laugh, get angry, and cry. He didn't know Maximino could be this narrow-minded.
"Ha! You're unbelievable." He said while shaking his head. "I can't believe I am hearing this bullshit from you." He said before he violently withdrew his arm.
He shook his head again, his brain can't process the bullshit that Maximino just said.
"You're unbelievable. Really unbelievable." He repeated with his shaky voice then he began to laugh. "Do you really think a simple sorry could change everything? Do you really think a simple sorry could take away all the pain and sufferings that you caused me? Do you really fucking think that a simple sorry will make me forget everything that you've done to me? Ha! You're fucking unbelievable." His fists clenched. His eyes also began to water. "Sorry?!" He angrily shouted as he pointed his middle finger on his chest. "After harassing me, bullying me, humiliating me, all you're gonna say is sorry?! After you making my life miserable, all you're gonna say is sorry?! After ruining my life, all you're gonna say is sorry?!" His chest heaved in rage as his tears started to flow on his face. "After...after...ordering your fucking friends to gangrape me, all you're gonna say is sorry?! I'm sorry?! Well, fuck you!" He shouted angrily.
And as he could no longer restrain himself, without even thinking twice, he punched Maximino in the face, who was shocked and confused. But he was not satisfied with just one blow. When Maximino lost his balance and sat on the floor, he pushed him, causing him to lie down, then he sat on his stomach and he repeatedly punched him. He was pouring all the anger he's feeling for him on his every punch. His tears never stopped flowing. "You ruined my life! You ruined my future! You made my life miserable!" And when he got tired of punching Maximino's face, he grabbed him by his polo's collar while he was still sitting on his stomach, his tears continued to flow. "I lost everything I had because of you. Because of you! I've lost my dreams, my friends and my family." His voice weakened but Maximino could still hear the combined anger and sadness there. "I lost my family because of you. They rejected me because of an incident that I did not wanted! I lost them because of the lies that you've told them! I lost them. I lost them because of you. Because of you..." Nexus said while crying as he poured his heart out.
Maximino on the other hand was bewildered. He was so confused that he was not able to say something or do anything.
Nexus said a lot of things but there was a certain sentence that he couldn't understand nor he can't get out of his mind.
Rape? Ordering his friends to gangrape him?
What the fuck?
He did not ask anyone to do that and he never will!
He looked at Nexus' crying face.
He didn't order anyone to fucking rape him! He didn't do it. He didn't!
