She thought she must be overthinking, or maybe she was still tired or perhaps because of jetlag.
Everyone was enjoying eating and drinking. It was soon a late-night, all the parents were about to leave, but the kids didn't follow their parents back home, as they had planned for a night out.
Parents could not deny their kids because they hardly get time to hang around together. All the parents left, but Alice, Dylan and Alex had some eye discussions before leaving. No one knows what it was about.
After parents left, all the youngsters headed towards their car, Lucas settled in his car with Catherine, and Liam joined Daniel's car and Daniel's two friends.
Alexa went back to her room to change her gown, but all the cars were full by the time she came down. She doesn't want to be the bone for Lucas and Catherine, so she turned to take the key of her car; at that time, a voice came from behind.
"A girl driving alone at this hour would not be safe, come in my car." Alexa froze at this voice; she very well knows it was James's voice.
She turned to deny because she could not enjoy sitting next to him because she was very scared of him.
But before she could open her mouth, Daniel shouted from his car, "Yes, bunny James is right, you should not drive this late, just get in his car. Don't waste time; otherwise, we will miss the sunrise".
Alexa didn't have any other options; she nodded slightly and walked towards James's car and sat on the passenger seat.
When all settled in the car, Daniel started the car and drove off slowly, Lucas followed him, but when it was James's turn, he didn't start the engine; instead, he was slowly leaning towards Alexa.
Her heartbeat stopped, her face started turning in dark shades of red as much as he was leaning.
She was so scared that she shut her eyes tightly, but soon she heard a "clunk" sound and opened her eyes to see that he just tied her seat belt.
She was cursing herself so much, for being such a fool and thinking that James might kiss her, how can she have such thoughts in her mind.
She is sure James must be having his girlfriend and maybe not only one a lot; after all, he is so handsome, it is impossible for a man like him not to have girlfriends. He is almost twenty years old.
The thought James had a girlfriend somewhere pinched her in heart, she didn't like this thought, but she can't do anything, it was his life, and she is just a childhood friend.
She was sitting straight in the car; if possible, she tried to hold her breath also. There were two people in the car, but the car's silence was like no one was there.
The place where they are going is famous for the best sunrise view. It's in the mountains, but it does not need trekking; cars can be driven to the hilltop.
It was almost two hundred kilometers from their place. Daniel drove next to James's car and shouted, "Brother, let's "race.
James gave him a devilish smile, and Daniel understood that James is on for the race. No one noticed Alexa's expressions, she was hell scared of speed, but she didn't dare say a word to James.
When they started the race, they were an hour away from their destination. James and Daniel began to race, and Alexa held the seat belt tightly.
Daniel's car was lively, loud music and hooting sound came whenever they passed James's car, but in James's car, it was pin-drop silence.
They were about to finish the race when Daniel passed James's car and shouted, "bro, this time you will lose," He drove away, saying this.
Alexa was sitting holding the seat belt and shutting her eyes tightly, she heard a cold and heavy voice, "Don't be scared."
But before she could open her eyes and see James's expression, he mumbled with a devilish smile, 'Daniel, buddy, you forgot which car I am driving today,' and with this, he accelerated his car and drove at full speed.
He was driving a bugatti chiron super sport 300+, his favorite car, and just the moment Daniel was about to win a car passed him at a speed that they could not see which car was it.
When Daniel reached the destination, James was already standing there smoking.
Alexa was still in the car feeling dizzy; Daniel started whining like a kid, "bro, this is not fair, you used your racing car."
James smiled and said, "You never kept the condition on which car to use"
Daniel said, pouting, "bro, don't tell it to anyone that I lost the race", James nodded smiling. Daniel is like a younger brother for James, so he doesn't mind spoiling him.
Soon Lucas and Catherine also reached, and they all headed towards the sunrise point; they reached a little early, all were walking ahead, but Alexa slowly came out of the car and started walking slowly, still feeling dizzy.
James noticed her; he walked back, picked her in his arms in princess style, and started walking following others. Alexa tried to say, "I am fine, please put me down", she was feeling shy and uncomfortable.
James looked at her pale face as if he was thinking something; after a few seconds of silence, he said or we can say he ordered, "Just shut your mouth and put your head on my chest".
Alexa didn't dare to go against his words and did what he said, she was cursing herself not to have the courage to retort when it comes to James.
As there was still time in sunrise, they went to a restaurant owned by James, all the arrangements for their arrival were already done.
They directly went to the bone fire area; James gently made Alexa sit on the ground, where everyone was seated surrounding the fire.
Lucas and Catherine sat next to each other; all were chit-chatting happily. Alexa was sitting next to Daniel, and she didn't realize when she dozed off, taking Daniel's shoulder's support.
Soon it was a time of sunrise; everyone was excited, taking selfies and making videos.
Alexa was already tired, and on top of that, the dizziness because of the race, she was in a deep sleep, she heard a very gentle voice, "Love, wake up and see the beautiful sunrise".
