Mysterious Attraction- Chapter 11 Part 3

So it occurred to me recently, that Mysterious Attraction is over a year old already! My goodness! I never intended this to be so long. But at the same time I didn’t rush it. I let it fall where it needed to. The first part of Chapter 1 was posted on October 4th, 2013. So in honor of this Anniversary I’m throwing out a second segment this week. It’s been a while since I’ve done that. Two in one week! Lucky you! 😉 The way that this story started was far different from where it is ending up. It started off with no name characters and simply just dialogue between two characters. In my head I had a storyline, an idea of what I wanted the story to be. And now it’s taken form and coming together, but we are nearing the end. FINALLY! It’s been a fun journey and I hope you’ve enjoyed. Happy Anniversary Mysterious Attraction, Happy Anniversary Lexie & Carter. Let’s finish this sucker up! Chapter 12 is up next and it’s the last and final chapter. When the story fully finishes I will do a much more in-depth analysis of the whole thing and the journey of writing it. Hope you stick around. 😀

***********************************************

The next few months play out like a happy montage.

As the plans to build a fashion empire are put to reality.

Employee after employee from Lexie’s roster join her new adventure. Happy to be away from the dangerous life of crime and surprisingly enough happy to have Lexie as a boss again. Carey Mulligan, Ryan Gosling379576

Brice and Carter are painting.

Lexie is doing inventory and talking with a seamstress and a young female assistant.

Lexie: Thank you Dylan. You’re doing a great job kid.

wilson-bethel-photo-17Dylan smiles and brings the boxes into the stock room.

Roxy walks in with coffees.demi-lovato-good-morning-america-interview-watch-now-01 - Copy

Lexie: (taking a cup) Ugh, you are a godsend.

Roxy: Don’t I know it.

Brice and Carter notice.

Carter: Coffee Break?

Brice: Sure.

tumblr_inline_mtphigXyG21rfmsq0Brice glances at Roxy.

Carter notices and laughs.

Carter: (whispers to Brice) Watch out for that one.

Brice looks at Carter and smiles.

Roxy hands Carter and Brice each a cup of coffee.

Roxy:(throws Brice a flirty smile) Compliments of Roxy. demi-lovato-big-secret[1]

Brice: Thanks. I’m Brice.

Roxy: Yes. you. are.

Brice: I’m sorry?

Roxy: No…but you will be.

Roxy smiles and walks away to where Lexie is working on hanging clothes on hangers and racks.

501OneTreeHill076[1]Lexie: (notices) You are relentless. (she shakes her head)

Roxy: Oh please after all the boys we had to suffer through in boarding school; we deserve to play with a few minds. Men think it’s their game… it’s been a women’s game for centuries. It’s a known fact we play them better than they could ever play us.

Lexie: So you plan on ruining that poor man?

Roxy: For every woman out there that’s ever dealt with a douche bag who says they don’t believe in love…and then ends up married with two kids… yes….or simply stays a douche bag hopping from girl to girl breaking hearts…yes.

Lexie: You do realize that not all men are like that, right? Brice certainly isn’t. Don’t break a good man, just to prove a general point.

Roxy: Why… you did?

Lexie: Yea and it was wrong. I was wrong. I got lucky that Carter stayed long enough for me to get out of my own way and  get over the fear. But he could have easily walked away. And then where would I be? Brice is a good man Rox, let him…. be.

Roxy: I don’t know if he’s a good man. That’s all hearsay at this point. So I guess that is for you to know and for me to figure out.

Lexie: Ok. Alls I’m saying is don’t give yourself something to regret.

Roxy: I don’t plan to.

Lexie: Ok good.Demi_Lovato_Visits_Late_Night_With_Jimmy_Fallon-600x450[1]

Roxy: Besides, I’m just gonna make him fall in love with me, that’s all.

Roxy winks and walks away. She turns back around…

Roxy: (whispers) Lover not a fighter.

Lexie shakes her head and laughs

Roxy goes off to where Brice stands painting.

Carter notices.

Lexie notices too.lexie ma

Lexie: Joe. Hey.

Joe: Hey. Am I late?

Lexie: No just in time. You can help the guys paint.

Joe: Sure.

He walks over to Brice and they shake hands, Brice hands him a brush.

Roxy: Joseph.Demi-Lovato-Prank-665x385

Brice: You guys know each other?

Roxy: A little. Joe, Lexie and I have some history.

Joe: We all went to high school together.

Brice: Oh.452689

Roxy: (rolling her eyes) Ah the glory days.

Joe and Roxy exchange glances.

Carter walks over to Lexie.

Carter: Why didn’t you tell me you invited him?

Carey Mulligan, Ryan GoslingLexie: Because I knew it’d be a fight, and I didn’t care to deal with it. There’s too much to do, we need all the help we can get if we want to be up and running by next week.

Carter: Ok well you could have at least just told me that. So I wouldn’t be blindsided by the fact that my future wives’ ex husband is lurking around…once again.Between Raising Hell and Amazing Grace

Lexie: Really? Don’t go there. We’ve moved past all that haven’t we?

Carter: I don’t like us having secrets Lex.

Lexie: Good. Because we don’t have any. Not anymore.

Carter: You sure about that?

Lexie: Yes. I’m sorry. I am. But there’s no reason to feel any certain kind of way. That part of my life that happened with Joe is over, and it was a long time ago. We’ve both moved on.

Carter: Oh I know you have. But has he?

Lexie: I think he has. Joe and I talked through a lot that day of the accident and he was nothing but kind to me and to us. You know that. Just let’s focus on this ok. We’re engaged, we’re having a baby. I think it’s safe to say I’m yours. (she smiles)

Carter: Ok. Good. Because I’m not sharing you.

Brooke-and-Julain-brooke-and-julian-24963952-500-281Lexie: Well you’re gonna have to share me with one other person…(she looks down at her belly)

Carter: (smiles and touches her belly bump) Oh well she’s the only one who gets a free pass.

Lexie leans into him and he accepts her kiss.

Lexie: Love you.20130107015122!Brooke_and_Julian

Carter: Love you. (he kisses her again)

Carter nods in the direction of Brice and Roxy.

Roxy is being her charming self and Brice is putty in her hands as he laughs at a story she’s telling. She touches his arm. He smiles. There’s an instant connection.

Lexie: (laughs) Oh gosh.

Carter: How do you girls do it?

Lexie: It’s a gift and a curse. And guys are easy. Pretty gullible.

Carter: Hey I put up a decent fight.

Lexie: Oh, you just keep telling yourself that. (She slaps his cheek in a playful manner…mocking him)

Carter shakes his head and walks back to help paint.

Roxy walks toward them, and passes Carter.ryan-gosling-320

She raises her eyebrows at him and motions her head in Brice’s direction. Giving two a-ok signs. Mouthing the word “Hottie.”

Carter laughs.

Roxy: Well jealous Carter is sexy, huh?

Lexie: Carter is always sexy.

Roxy: You know who else is sexy, (she smiles and stares at Brice who looks her way.)

Something's happening here...will Roxy let the walls she built in her past run her future, or will she take Lexie and Carter's advice and let Brice in.

Something is happening here…will Roxy let the walls she built in her past run her future, or will she take Lexie and Carter’s advice and let Brice in long enough to see he’s a good guy.
