Chapter 710 Obsessed (Part I)

Alicia was still embarrassed at the scene she had inadvertently witnessed between him and the other girl, so she decided to leave regardless of Zeres' words. But unfortunately for her, Zeres had already muttered the spell before she could escape quick enough, and she became visible to him. He appeared before her the moment he pinpointed her location in his apartment, giving her a fright.

She tried to smile at him, to say something to break that tight tension that were between them. She did not manage to call a single thing to her mind, thus she acted like nothing had happened and smiled him lopsidedly as though she did not see a thing from earlier. "Why are you hiding from me?" she asked. "It has been so long since we saw each other Zeres."

Zeres remained silent and just stared at her without a single ripple across that good looking face of his. He looked like he had gone frigid at the sight of her. He looked pretty dishevelled and roguish. He was supposed to look like shit with all that ruffled hair, one cheek with a smeared mark of lipstick and crumpled shirt – but he was not. He actually looked like his appearance had matured a lot in the past months that Alicia had not seen him. 

Trying to break the awkward silence, Alicia looked around. "I was surprised to find you in such a modern place like this." She commented, keeping her voice light and noncommittal. She allowed her gaze to sweep around the interior of the luxurious apartment.

When Zeres still did not say a word, she looked back at him. She realized that he seemed leaner now, almost raw-boned. It has been months since she last saw him, and he just keep on changing. If she tried to imagine him when she first met him and compared him to what he is now, she could tell that he was altered in so many ways. She wondered if there was something that had happened after he left the Black Forest after her 'funeral' that had caused him to change so drastically. 

"Do you fancy this kind of place now? I am hoping Ezekiel didn't force you to live here –" Alicia rattled on, trying to dispel that somewhat stifled silence between them.

"Alicia." He cut her off. His voice surprisingly deeper and harder than she remembered it to be, that it truly surprised her again, that she stopped talking and only blinked at him a couple of times. "What the hell are you doing here?" he did not raise his voice at her, but he sounded extremely cold, causing Alicia to snap out of her surprise and narrowed her eyes at him. She was starting to feel irritated at his cold reception now. 'Was this anyway to greet a friend who came all the way to visit? Does he have to be this prickly?!'

"To see you, of course." She replied snappishly, displeased with such brash questioning from him, meeting his fierce gaze challengingly as she raised her chin slightly. 

Zeres raked his hand through his hair, silently exhaling a heavy sigh. "Didn't I tell you not to ever come–"

"I have a business with you. And did you think I will refrain from coming to look for you just because you told me not to –" Alicia raged back at his cold voice telling her off. 'The nerve of this man!'

"You can't just barge in into a man's house anytime and anyhow like that!" His reply came out a little loud and forceful that Alicia was silenced again and blinked at him. He had never raised his voice at her like this before – never. 

"Oh…" she realized he must have known that she had seen everything that had gone on earlier and that she had actually ruined the night for him. "My bad for disturbing your… erm… well, I apologize for the  untimely intrusion. Rest assured I will refrain from entering your house without getting your permission first next time." She tried to keep her voice neutral as she glared at him. 

For some reason, what she said seemed to cause his face to darken even more. And the frown on his forehead deepened.

Alicia closed her eyes and drew in a deep breath. She then exhaled heavily before looking determinedly at Zeres. "I came here because there is something we need to talk about." Alicia said as she took a step closer to him. 

"I'm guessing this is about Kiel again, right?" Zeres' voice sounded tired.

Alicia nodded. "Yes. This is very important and that's why…" she trailed off at she saw him suddenly smirking. "What. Is there something funny with what I said?" she asked defensively as her body leaned back slightly.

A long seemingly helpless sigh left Zeres lips before he peered at her. "I see you're still so obsessed with Kiel." He commented and Alicia's face became a little sour.

"What are you talking about? Who is obsessed with who?" Alicia retorted.

"You." He answered her straightforwardly as his palms that were braced on the top of the sofa's back tightened as he said that one word with difficulty. He hated that just saying that one word stung him so badly. He had gripped so hard that his nails nearly punctured through the sofa's leather coverings. He managed to catch himself before he really ripped through them.

"Nonsense." She frowned at him while shaking her head insistently. "I am not –"

"Yes Alicia, you are." Zeres cut her off again, his jaws clenching hard. "Haven't you noticed your attention is all directed on him since you…" he paused and then turned around as he harshly tugged on his dishevelled necktie. "Stop obsessing too much about him, Alicia –"

"Just what the hell are you talking about, you idiot!" She finally burst out in anger and appeared right before him as Zeres started to roughly unbutton his shirt, exposing his toned chest. "Don't you start giving me this nonsense. You clearly know why I am always monitoring his moves. It's the same reason why you decided to stick close to him. Why is it that now you're suddenly spouting out such nonsense –" Alicia was irritated at Zeres' focus on such nonsense.

"What have you been doing in these past few months, Alicia?" his voice calmed down. "Everything you've been doing is related to Kiel, am I right?" 

Chapter 711 Obsessed (Part II)
"What have you been doing in these past few months, Alicia?" his voice calmed down. "Everything you've been doing is related to Kiel, am I right?"

"Well… that's obvious, isn't it? Since he's the biggest problem for us witches right now..." she trailed off again as Zeres closed his eyes, looking like he was going to erupt in anger very soon.

Suddenly, he impatiently ripped the shirt he was only half done unbuttoning due to quiet rage, surprising Alicia once again. "Damn." He cursed as he stared frustratedly at the buttons that were rolling away in all directions on the floor. "He's not the biggest problem right now. Damn it, Alicia!" He muttered under his breath, as if he was talking to himself. Alicia could see him gritting his teeth so hard, she was worried he would wear his teeth out.

Then he groaned low and without glancing at her, he headed towards the bathroom and slammed it shut. Jumping slightly at the loud bang following his slamming the door, Alicia was left just standing there, stunned at his attitude.

As soon as the door slammed closed behind him, Zeres leaned his body heavily against the door. And then he slowly slid down and sat in an ungraceful heap on the furry carpeted bathroom floor. His head drooped down as his wrists rested on top of his folded knees.

"Calm down, damn it! What's going on with you, idiot?" He whispered harshly, berating himself, before he rushed towards the shower to cool his head. He felt miserable and did not know how to overcome these complicated feelings that were roused within him.

That day he left the dark forest, Alicia had told him to learn to live in the modern world. She told him he was free to do anything that he finds enjoyable and that he must learn to live like a modern man to fit in with the human society.

He did just as she advised. Though it was not only because she said so. He knew it was necessary for him to learn to fit in this world dominated by humans. And of course, as time went by, he began to be influenced with the things humans find enjoyable. His involvement in Kiel's mafia organization also exposed him to almost every immoral thing imaginable that many humans loved to do.

Hoping that those things would distract him, Zeres indulged himself with the things both vampires and humans considered as the pleasures of life. Somehow, he understood why they had called it that. Those things did give relief and pleasure that could make him forget everything… no matter how temporary it was, he would not deny that it indeed helped. 

Even though these things could not change anything at the end of the day, Zeres had been spared from many miserable nights in the past months. He was not going to regret doing the things he had done. At first, he was overcome with guilt. He had a hard time touching another woman as his mind kept thinking about Alicia. That night, the woman had asked him if he had someone he loved. When he nodded at her, the woman asked him if the one he love loved him back. The question hit him hard like a sucker punch right into his gut. He knew Alicia did not feel the same way that he did for her. They do not even have any sort of romantic relationship, not even promises to bind them to each other.

Since he started bedding a woman, his guilt slowly disappeared. In fact, he had liked that he at least stopped thinking about her when f*cking someone else. He had thought he was probably starting to get over her and to him, that was a relief.

Yet now. Just her appearing before him crushed all those thoughts and hopes. He still wanted her so badly. If she was not a spirit, he would have seized and ravished her completely the moment he saw her. And then it made his blood boil when he did not see her even react at all at what she had seen. He knew she saw what happened since he entered the door with that woman. And yet, it seemed that seeing such a thing was nothing to her. And he was furious no matter how ridiculous it was of him to feel that way.

"Of course, it'll be nothing to her. What the hell are you still expecting?!" He told himself bitterly as he slammed his palm down against the marble tile. He could hardly feel the pain that radiated from his palm as the pain in his heart was so much greater that it seemed to drown out everything else.

He also could hardly contain himself when she spoke about Kiel, calling him the biggest problem. Zeres knew why she thinks that way and he knew she was right. But to him, Kiel was not the biggest problem. The biggest problem was Alicia. It had been months and there was still no progress on his search to bringing her back. This was the main thing that was making him more and more miserable for each day that passes.

His focus had been on this alone since he left the Black Forest. One witch he found during his search who had now became his sidekick had told him he was too obsessed with whatever it was that he was searching. The guy was right. He was obsessed and he will never stop being obsessed until he finds what he is looking for.

And this was the most ironic thing of all. Him obsessing about her, about bringing her back, while she was obsessing over someone else. She would not admit she was, but her focus now was on Kiel, as if she had forgotten that she was in a dire situation herself. And he hated that. Despite knowing that he, of all people, should be the one to understand her best.
