That face was pure as a summer’s day, her big doe eyes, innocent yet captivating. Her fair cheeks, which had been slapped by Yuna, bore a natural blush, and her bright l*ps were tempting.
Frederick took a step forward, suddenly enveloping Marguerite from behind, hugging her tightly. His heart ached as he sighed, “I’m sorry I didn’t find you sooner, you’ve suffered.”
Marguerite’s eyelashes trembled slightly as she was filled with shock, her b*dy trembling.
Looking for her?
Marguerite looked at her reflection in the mirror. The face she revealed when she took off her mask was identical to Yuna’s.
So, Frederick had mistaken her for Yuna?
Quickly, Marguerite shoved the mask into her vanity, fearing he would discover it.
He held her tight, as if trying to mold her into his b*dy.
Marguerite felt aching all over and, in a voice imitating Yuna’s, she complained, “Freddie, can you let go of me first? It hurts.”
Her weak demeanor reflected in the mirror, her coquettish and aggrieved voice melted his heart, and he got lost in the feeling.
was reluctant to let her go, but his hands couldn’t resist holding her shoulders, gently turning her–around, his loving k*ss landed unexpectedly on her forehead.
Marguerite’s b*dy stiffened, even though she knew the k*ss wasn’t meant for her, her heart was still pounding.
She was at a loss, unsure of what to say.
“I’m sorry, ‘got too excited.” He laughed at himself, his voice gentle, as if afraid to scare this woman, who was as delicate as a kitten.
Marguerite remained silent, only staring at him wide–eyed.
The faint scent of her perfume wafted in the air, calming Frederick’s emotions just like that night.
He knew he hadn’t mistaken the person. He had been too suspicious before.
Thinking about her painful experience over the years, Frederick only blamed himself for not finding her sooner.
“Yuna, I’ll find your grandma as soon as possible, so you can reunite.”
Marguerite was shocked again.
Her grandma was at Stonebridge Memorial Hospital, the Lockwood family had been there several times. Why did he say “find“?
So, Yuna must have lied to Frederick about her grandma’s disappearance?
This woman was indeed good at lying.
But Frederick was so cautious, how could he be easily fooled by Yuna’s lies?
Marguerite looked up at him, his handsome face filled with deep love. It seemed he had completely lost himself.
In a moment, an odd emotion stirred in Marguerite’s heart.
She calmed herself, then gratefully said, “Okay, thank you, Freddie.”
Even though everyone knew where grandma was, Marguerite didn’t stop Frederick
Because she knew, if Frederick really found grandma, he would protect her. This way, the Lockwood family wouldn’t threaten her with grandma
“It’s something I should do.”
Frederick’s slightly rough thumb gently stroked her delicate cheek.
“I’ll find a chance to explain my relationship with Marguerite to you. Don’t worry, I’ll marry you.”
Hearing this, Marguerite’s face turned cold.
She finally understood where Yuna’s arrogance and confidence at the hospital came from.
Frederick was determined to marry her and showered her with love.
The man before her now was completely different from the Frederick she knew.
All his love and tenderness was for Yuna. That was her confidence.
Marguerite should have been indifferent to this, but for some reason, her heart felt blocked.
Her mind began to wander uncontrollably, not understanding why Frederick was so fond of Yuna.
Was it because of this face?
Marguerite couldn’t help but turn to the mirror, looking at this face identical to Yuna’s.
She had to admit, it was a beautiful face.
Back in Marina Shores Village, many men had pursued her.
So, if she could truly drop the mask,‘ would Frederick’s attitude towards her improve?
With these thoughts, Marguerite cautiously said, “Frederick, you’ve mistaken me for someone else, I’m not Yuna.”
