'Such a gentleman. I really want this man!' She mused, her eyes sparkling with adoration for the man sitting close to her. She also loved his manly scent. She felt like it was intoxicating her at that moment.
'Shall I confess to him tonight or delay until I get admitted to the Academy?' She thought inwardly.
People say that a teenager's brain is kinda messed up by hormones and by the fact that they were still growing.
However, her character was precise. She was not interested in waiting around for something to happen, she was willing to risk to feel or look foolish and settle the matter right away, one way or another at the earliest opportunity she could have.
During the bidding, her mind had already finalized a plan which was actually to get drunk and confess to Zach that she liked him. Being drunk could give her a lot of scenarios and benefits in the aftermath.
She thought that there were two possibilities if she happened to confess this early, it's either progress in a relationship or getting rejected.
The question was if she was ready for any of those two possibilities to happen… No matter what, she was Keira Chan who never accepted defeat that easily.
"Hmm… are you planning to get drunk on me?" Keira murmured with a seductive smile, which left Zach in awe.
She was not drunk yet but she could act like one...
Zach quickly drank the beer he had snatched from Keira, in one go. 'It's really weird…' he mused as he kept an emotionless expression on his face. That weird feeling was the same as before, but as usual, he quickly brushed it off.
"You keep pouring for yourself. It's not nice if you end up drunk with me, so I will drink it instead of you." Zach answered, trying to hide his blushing because he could feel he just did. He felt that if he let Keira get drunk something bad could happen.
Then, he let out a long, deep sigh…
"Can I ask why? I mean why would you take the admission test for the military training?" Zach asked suddenly out of curiosity. It was strange, but for some reason, he wanted to know why would someone like Keira take the admission test for Military Academy.
Keira chuckled because of the opening of a great opportunity. For her, it was a sign to push things through.
"Hmm, do you really want to know? But why, why are you asking me that? Is it perhaps because you think I will not make it till the end? Because you said before that I'm clumsy. Sorry to disappoint you, but I'm confident I will pass all the exams and will be admitted for sure." She said nonchalantly.
Zach looked at Keira and said, "Physically? I really think you won't last long in the training if you ever pass and get admitted… But then, I do believe in one's perseverance… If you believe in one thing and set your mind and body to it… then you will succeed in the end and that's for sure."
Keira seemed to not mind Zach's words as she just stared at his face intently, inspecting every detail on Zach's face as if she was memorizing every part of it.
"Do you really want to know the reason I am desperately trying to get inside that Military Base?" Keira whispered not blinking an eye as she met Zach's confused eyes.
Then, Keira leaned on closer at him, not giving him a chance to say a word as she closed into him leaving only an inch between them.
Zach was caught off-guard with Keira's bold movements and it left him speechless for a brief moment.
'What is she doing?' He thought with his eyes going wide, then he felt Keira's palms on his both cheeks.
He froze that instant. He did not move at all like his body became a statue with that simple touch.
'What is wrong with me?' He complained to himself, thinking that it could be the alcohol's effect.
He saw Keira smile at him. It was a pleasant and beautiful smile that not only carved on her lips but also touched her deep-seated eyes.
"General Zacharias Lim, I, Keira Chan, will absolutely get admitted to that Academy so I can get closer to the person I like for the first time in my life," Keira whispered to his face and Zach could smell the sweetness of her breath mixed with alcohol.
But that was not it, because for some reason his body was reacting on his own.
At that instant, he knew what could happen next, but instead of pushing Keira away from him, he did nothing but stayed put, it was like he was anticipating what would happen next as he remained frozen.
Then, Keira added in her horse sweet voice, "I will enter the Military Academy to conquer you, General Zach. So be ready, because I never take a 'NO' for an answer."
That was the last words that Keira dropped before she closed the gap and kissed Zach on his lips, leaving him just staring at her in bewilderment...
