So yea so much for getting this week’s Friday post up earlier then last week’s, in fact it’s really late, cuz well it’s Saturday, lol. But due to computer issues I wasn’t able to post yesterday, but whatever better late then never! Anyway small announcement for those actually keeping up with this story, the forthcoming (and ending) chapters of Mysterious Attraction, will be played out in the next few weeks on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays…(starting as of next week). It should be only a matter of a few weeks before Lexie, Carter, Kelly, Reeves, Joe, and Brice’s stories comes to an end.
And Skully’s identity will soon be revealed…
so without further ado…
Previously on Mysterious Attraction…
And this week …
Carter makes a turn
Lexie: Where are you going?
Carter: I’m dropping you home.
Lexie: Oh. You don’t want me to come with you? (looks away nervously)
Carter: Well my lawyer advised I come alone, Kelly’s due to be there with her lawyer and you being there may just add fuel to the fire.
Carter: If it was up to me I’d have you there.
Lexie: No, yea of course.
Carter: But then again, I wouldn’t wanna put you through that anyway…something tells me it could get ugly. And I just don’t want to subject you to Kelly’s hurtful insults. You don’t deserve that.
Carter: Lexie. (notices her pulling away) Hey. Look at me?
Lexie glances over at him
Carter: I love you. I’m not going anywhere. We’re gonna be together just like I promised. But this is just one of the things I have to do to allow us to get there. It’s just something I have to do. Please don’t take off on one of your crazy over thinking mental rants ok?
Lexie: Stop the car.
Carter: Wha- why? (gives her a look of frustration)
Lexie: (yells) Stop the car!
Lexie storms out of the car
Carter: What are you doing?
Lexie: I don’t feel like being near you right now.
Carter: Ok. And why’s that? Because you’re crazy?
Carter huffs and rushes after her as she sets off walking at a fast pace
Carter: You know what, forget it. I’m not chasing you. I’m not giving you that satisfaction.
Lexie: (turns around) Good, take care. (waves)
Carter groans and walks back to his car, and gets in
He drives alongside Lexie as she sulks her way toward her house
Lexie: I thought you weren’t gonna chase after me?
Carter: Come on. You knew I would. You know I always will. That’s why you’re doing this.
Carter: Would you get in the car please?
Lexie looks at him
Carter: Lexie? (laughs)
Carter: You realize you’re being irrational right?
Lexie: Maybe. But I don’t appreciate being called crazy.
Carter: I’m sorry.
Lexie glares at him
Lexie huffs and climbs in
Carter smiles at her
Lexie: Don’t. (smirks)
Carter: Come here, (kisses her cheek).
Carter: You forget how well I know you…picking a fight out of nowhere just to distract me?
Lexie: That wasn’t what I was doing….I genuinely thought you didn’t want me with you?
Carter: Again, irrational.
Carter: Ok ok, hey I’m sorry, (cups her face) I’m sorry. I don’t mean to upset you. (leans in to kiss her)
Lexie kisses him
Carter: But babe, at some point you’re going to have to learn to trust what I’m saying and not hear it the way I know you’re brain hears it. I say I’m protecting you, and you hear I don’t wanna be with you. Do you see how this can be frustrating?
Lexie: It’s difficult for me to trust, you know that.
Carter: Yea I do, but after everything we’ve been through, I would think you’d be starting to let go of that at least a little bit.
Lexie: I thought I was.
Carter: Ok, so what changed?
Carter: Ok I’m just gonna stop you right there. I’m not in love with Kelly. Yes, a part of me will always care for her and yes I do want this to be as kind of a divorce as possible, but like I’ve said before I don’t care what I have to do, I will get this divorce and we will be together.
Lexie: I’m sorry.
Carter: Come here, (hugs her).
Carter: But just to for my sanity…before I made the “crazy” comment…you were just screwing with me right? I mean you were just tryna pick a fight to keep me from going?
Lexie: (smiles sarcastically) I guess you’ll never know.
Carter: (smiling) You are something else, you know that?
Lexie: Don’t you forget it.
Lexie: So are you gonna drop me home and get this meeting over with so I can be one step closer to having you all to myself? (smiles)
Carter: Yes ma’am. (smiles and starts to drive)
Lexie smiles at him lovingly
Lexie: So you’ll call me when your done?
Carter: I’ll do one better, I’ll come over.
Lexie: Ok, (smiles) I love you.
Carter: (kisses her) I love you.
Carter’s phone rings it reads “private”
A man’s voice is heard on the other end.
Man: Mr. Carter…it’s a pleasure to finally reach you.
Carter: Who’s calling?
Man: You’ll soon find out.
Carter: I don’t have time for games, who is this?
Man: Let’s just say you’ll be hearing from me rather shortly. In a big way.
Carter: Ok that makes no sense what so ever, since I’m on the phone with you now. Why can’t you just tell me what it is you want with me? Or better yet why call me at all?
Man: It’s not so much you, that I’m concerned with.
Carter: And what are you concerned with?
Man: Not what, who.
Carter: Who is this?
Man: Mr. Carter, relax. Just let the record show…you’ve been warned.
Carter: Warned about what? Who is this?
The line goes dead
Carter: (yelling) Hello? Hello?
Carter looks at his phone and grunts, throwing it
“It’s not so much you, that I’m concerned with…..not what, who.” the words echoe in his mind
Carter has a ****flashback…****
Carter: Excuse me, Sir?
A man in a chair turns around to face Carter
Skully: May I help you?
Carter: Are you Skully?
Skully: That’s me (evil grin plastered across his face).
Carter: I’m Carter. I was recently reassigned to work for you.
Carter: Yea. I just thought I’d introduce myself.
Skully: Carter, was it?
Carter: Yes sir.
Skully: If I’ve been informed correctly you worked for Reeves…and his darling daughter Lexie. Gorgeous girl, isn’t she?
Carter remembers the voice…
Carter grabs his phone…
Carter: Reeves it’s Carter, I need to talk to you…
Carter rushes off…
Meanwhile Lexie gets to her floor and walks off the elevator. She pulls her keys from her purse and opens her door.
Lexie slips off her heels places her purse on the end table and as she walks further in her apartment she screams.
