Previously on Waking up in Vegas…
"Well, do you love me?" he asked looking into my eyes, trying to make it a profound moment, but he kept hiccupping and it kind of ruined it.
"Yeah, sure, why not?" I said shrugging my shoulders.
"Then let's get married!"
Ughh, my head throbbed in pain. I opened my eyes and immediately shut them because of the blinding sunlight. I felt like throwing up, and my head felt like as if it were being attacked by a woodpecker. I tried opening my eyes again, this time shielding them a bit with my hand. Once I adjusted my vision and I sat up a little, I looked around at my surroundings. I was in a big, spacious room, it had cream-colored walls, and it looked luxurious, with lush white carpet, a sitting room (from where I could see), and it had a huge window facing the city. That was where the sun light was streaming from, even though the curtains were partially closed.
The bed I was on was very comfortable, but the sheet was all a mess, and tangled up. I jumped when I heard a loud noise. It sounded like a snore, so I looked around. Then I saw him.
I screamed and fell of the bed, taking the sheet down with me. But he was as tangled as I was so he crashed down on the floor after me. I hit the floor with a loud thud, and a scream, and he fell down on top of me. He was able to put his arms out so he didn't totally crush me.
We stayed still catching our breaths and I just closed my eyes trying to think. I was so confused, where was I? How did I end up her?
He, or should I say Fernando untangled himself from the sheets and got off of me.
"Umm…wha-…are you Ok?" he asked confused while grabbing his head as if in pain.
"I'm fine, I think…um where are we?"
"My hotel bedroom, do you remember anything that happened last night?" he said while standing up and offering me his hand.
I quickly took it not sure if I would be able to stand on my own. "Umm, not really, I think-" I gasped. That's when I saw it.
I looked at my left hand and saw a huge diamond double ring on the finger next to my pinky. It was white gold whit little diamond studs around the bands and one of the rings had a big diamond on it.
I just stared at it, feeling dread. I started to hyperventilate and Fernando was shaking my shoulders trying to make me snap out of it. "What's wrong? Are you alright?"
"My hand," I was able to get out shakily. He immediately took my hands and checked them. When he saw the ring his eyes grew as wide as saucers. "Wha-what is tha-that?" he stuttered, still clutching me hand and staring at it. "It's a ring. A wedding ring to be exact," I breathed out.
"I know that!" he snapped, "but what is it doing there?"
I just stayed quiet, feeling a bit faint, I couldn't get enough air. What am I going to do!! I am 25!! I'm not ready for a husband yet! Let alone some guys I just met at a club yesterday! What about me future! My job! Oh My God!! My PARENTS!!
Now I really couldn't breathe. "Alexandra, breathe, relax. We can still figure this out, we just have to calm down," he said in a soothing voice, but it had little effect on me. He guided me to a sofa and sat down next to me. "How can I calm down?! We're fucking married!" I started yelling. "What is there to figure out?!"
"Look let's take a shower, get dressed, we can go to your hotel if you want to get some fresh clothes, and then we can figure out how to sort this mess out," he said with a composed expression. I guess having a plan helped calm my nerves, so I just nodded and asked him where the bathroom was. I went directly to it, and shut the door behind me.
I was in a sort of trance while I turned on the shower and peeled off the shirt I was wearing. I hadn't even noticed that I was wearing his shirt, it smelled of leather, his cologne and alcohol from last night. Steam started to come from the shower so I got in. It was scalding hot, but I didn't care, it was helping relax my shoulder and back. As the hot water hit my back, my head started to clear and I was able to think better.
I calmed down, after taking a few breathes and after washing my hair and my body, I got out of the shower and dried myself off. That's when I remembered that this wasn't my hotel room so I wouldn't have fresh clothes, I would have to wear the ones from the previous night which were out in the room. I wrapped the towel around me tightly and got out of the bathroom.
When I walked out the room wasn't such a mess, and there were 2 cups of coffee on the table, and my clothes were all on the bed. Fernando came out of the suite's kitchen, "I thought you might like some coffee before we leave."
"Thank you, so what's the plan?" I asked while heading toward the bed to grab my clothes.
"Well, as soon as I'm done getting dressed, we'll head out to breakfast where we'll be meeting my agent. I'm hoping he'll know a way out of this situation." He said heading to the bathroom.
I nodded, and he went in the bathroom. I started to change into my clothes, and then went to get my coffee. I kept drinking it not really wanting to think about all this, and about 20 minutes later Fernando emerged from the bathroom in only a towel. Wow, that was a sight. His torso was still a glistening wet, and his hair was slicked back. He walked into the bedroom and closed the door to get changed.
He came out wearing a grey t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers. "Ready to go?"
"Yep," I said getting up from the table and grabbing my purse.
"So, do you want to go to your hotel to change?" we got into the elevator, where we were the only people.
"Um, yeah that would be great, I also want to check on my friends and let them know where I am."
We went to the front desk so they would bring Fernando's car and waited outside. "Listen, I have to ask for a favor, can you please not tell anyone, not even your friends, about… this? Until we figure out what to do?"
"Of course, don't worry I won't say anything," the car showed up and we got in and left the hotel.
"So, what hotel are you staying at?" he asked, while we sped down streets.
"In the Bellagio," I said, looking out the window.
When we got there I told him to wait for me outside. I quickly got on the elevator and went to my room. I walked in and everything was quiet and dark. I tried to tiptoe in, so as to not wake them and have to explain myself.
"Where are you going?" said a voice to my right. I jumped in the air and screamed.
"Don't do that!" I snapped when I saw it was Kayla.
"I thought you were asleep," I asked her while walking to my room.
"I've been up like 40 minutes, but I decided to let Kathy sleep, I was wondering where you were,"
I started looking for something to wear and decided on a loose light blue tank top and some beige shorts. I quickly changed into them and looked for some shoes.
"So where were you?" Kayla asked patiently.
"Mmm, I stayed the night with this guy I met at the club," I decided to tell the truth, well part of the truth.
"And where are you going now? Not to be nosey, but I kind of would like to know where my best friend is,"
"I'm going to get some breakfast with him," I said while putting on my brown platform wedges. "Listen, I'll call you guys when I'm done and I'll tell you all about it," I said as I grabbed my purse and headed for the door.
"And I'm sorry for leaving you with Hangover Kathy," I said smiling a bit.
"Don't worry about, see you later! Have fun!"
I closed the door and rushed back downstairs. Kayla was always a friend to rely on, she cared about us so much, and we cared about her as well. She was like our little sister, Kathy and I would always stand up for her if someone was pushing her around.
I walked out of the hotel and spotted Fernando's black Aston Martin parked on the street. I walked over and got in. "Ok, I'm ready let's go."
We arrived at a nice restaurant 20 minutes away from my hotel. We went in and waited at a private corner of the restaurant for Fernando's agent to arrive.
I was looking around the restaurant, when a man in a grey suit walked up to our table. He seemed to be around his late 30s early 40s, and had a full head of brown hair, and shiny white teeth. He gave us a big smile and offered me his hand. "Hello, I'm Fernando's agent, nice to meet you,"
Although the expression on his face was pleasant but I knew that he was pretty pissed by the tight, tense grip of the handshake. He sat down, ordered a coffee, and began with telling us something that would change our lives.
