Season 7

Episode 73

(Move in with me (3)

A half an hour later Greg was at the hotel gate. As he got out of the car, he tossed the keys to the security guard and strode toward the hall.

A waiter looked at the license plate before approaching Greg, asking,"Are you Mr. Greg? Sir Tim asked me to meet you."

"There's no need! I can find my way," Greg said as he headed to the elevator. In the elevator Greg pressed the floor, and soon the elevator stopped at the presidential suite. He rang the bell and waited.

It was only a thirty-second wait before the door opened and a golden-haired young man was standing in front of him on the other side of the door. His face was handsome, with fair skin, striking eyebrows, and long, lush eyelashes. Even with the casual attire he wore, a noble temperament could be read on the cute face.

"Wow, you got here fast! Come in!" greeted Tim as he waved his arm inviting Greg in, a cute smile covering his face. Greg didn't step into the room right away. Instead, he cautiously looked inside, asking,"Is that perfume I smell in your room?"

Greg was worried there might still be some woman inside and it would be embarrassing! It was well known Tim was a playboy! Flocks of women were always chasing Tim and he could never bring himself to say no to any woman who threw herself at him. It wouldn't be anything surprising to see women in his room at any time! He had rich love stories.

"I think so. But, I requested housekeeping to send someone up to clean it ten minutes ago. I suppose it won't hamper you," Tim grinned wickedly.

Greg shook his head and walked in passed Tim and sat on the sofa.

Tim brought a cup of coffee to Greg and handed to him.

Taking the coffee, Greg said,"Thanks!"

"Ooh, when did you become so polite to me?" quipped Tim. Though Greg's appearance hadn't changed much, his character seemed to have changed a lot since he returned from abroad. Greg always seemed to enjoy giving Tim orders as if he owned him. He was a straight-forward, bossy type who would never say thank you to Tim.

"Stop talking nonsense! Don't you recall why I am here today?" Greg said calmly, taking no notice of Tim's banter.

"Of course I do. You are here about the house, right?" While he spoke, Tim walked to a cabinet, pulled open a drawer and took out a key.

As he walked over to Greg, Tim couldn't help but ask,"I really couldn't understand why you asked me to decorate the apartment for you since your house is a big villa. Don't you and your step-mother get along, and decide to move out?"

"I get along quite well with her. Why you care? Do you have any interest in her?" Greg always spoke up his mind because he knew Tim and him were in good relation, and Tim could tolerate his sick sense of humor.

"I don't care about your step-mother, actually. But I smelled a rat. Are you decorating this apartment for yourself, or, someone else?" Tim asked curiously while giving Greg a serious look.

"Do you think I would let others live in my house?" retorted Greg. If the house were prepared for someone else, he would not have had Tim repeatedly to select the house with the best location and optimal view. Even the decoration and furniture were all top-grade.

"Are you going to live there alone or with someone else?" asked Tim when an idea suddenly struck him and he wanted to know.

"Are you trying to ferret out the ins and outs of my love life?" asked Greg as he turned his head to the side, not looking at Tim any more.

"Naturally! If you have a girlfriend, I ought to help you and make sure you two are a good match for each other. Greg, my buddy, you know the eyes of many are sharp," an unnatural smile crossed Tim's face as he spoke. From the faint happiness on his face, Tim was sure Greg had a girlfriend and Tim thought Greg must be thinking of her now!

"What right do you have to check out my girl?" Greg shot Tim a look. He would never allow anyone else to disrespect his woman. Then there was the fact that Violet had been Tim's classmate too and when Greg and Violet were dating, Tim had showed her affection. At the time, Greg wanted to beat Tim soundly for daring to covet his woman. Now, many years had passed but Tim hadn't changed.

"You are my good brother!" Tim replied and moved closer to Greg asking,"Tell me, who is she? If she's blonde, perhaps you could bring her here so I can meet her and she can introduce me to another blonde."

"Forget it! I didn't find a blonde! My heart has remained the same," Greg said truthfully.

"Stayed the same?" Tim suddenly thought of something and his opened wide in disbelief and he asked,"You mean... that the girl is... Violet?"

She was unforgettable, Violet, the girl Greg loved with his whole being. Oh, Tim remembered her, and that she and Greg were once as happy a couple as the beautiful scenery on the campus and wherever they went, envious eyes followed them. But, Tim didn't know what happened to them later.

Greg's family had arranged for him to study overseas, while Violet remained local. A month later Tim had heard Greg and Violet broke up. He remembered he had called Greg to ask him what happened, but Greg didn't answer for two weeks. When he had finally gotten through to Greg, his first words were to tell Tim not to ask him anything about Violet. If Tim asked about Violet, Greg would break off relations with Tim.

Consequently, Tim never dares ask. When they did speak, they both avoided talking about Violet, as if she had never existed. But today, to Tim's shock, Greg took the initiative, and not only spoke about Violet but, it appeared the two were back together!

"Yes," Greg bit out before clamping his mouth shut and going silent.

For a moment, Tim deliberated and then asked,"Did you run into her when you returned home?"

"Yes," Greg responded.

"She isn't married yet, and you managed to swindle her into liking you, again?" Tim questioned. The news was unbelievable and he thought, 'He's such a lucky brat!' Tim had a girlfriend in junior high school. She had gotten married a few years ago, and he thought her son was about two years old now. Hearing that Greg had reunited with Violet was not news he ever expected. Tim just kept thinking how lucky Greg was!

"Kind of," Greg nodded. He wasn't sure if he would call himself lucky. He only knew that once he had Violet, he would have the world!
