Alyssa was like a delicate flower Jasper cared for attentively. No. matter how big the storm or how vicious the battle was, he was there
to defend her.
Alyssa was so starved that her stomach rumbled.
Rosie hastily went to the kitchen to make dinner for both of them. However, Alyssa was restlessly asking for a shower.
“I want a nice-smelling bubble bath. I smell like horse shit!”
“No. The doctor told me specifically that your wounds can’t be in contact with water for a week. Otherwise, it will get infected.”
Jasper carried her back to the room. “I’ll wipe you off, okay?”
“Will I be clean from wiping?” Alyssa pouted sulkily.
“Of course. When have I not helped you?”
Jasper’s breath landed against her ears. His voice was raspy and enticing. “I guarantee you will be squeaky clean inside out.”
“D-Don’t you dare have any naughty ideas. I’m exhausted today, and want to sleep.”
The positions that appeared in Alyssa’s mind were enough to make her blush. Plus, with Jasper’s naughty words and the moon shining bright outside the window, her delicate body began to turn warm.
She felt thirsty and hot, yet her heart was soft and tender.
The look in Jasper’s eyes darkened. He sighed sadly. “Your waist. can’t take the thrusts. Even if I wanted to, I would hold it in and wait until after you get better.”
In the bathroom, Alyssa sat in the warm white mist, her fair and silky body exposed before Jasper.
Jasper held a damp cloth. On one hand, he helped her to wipe her body. On the other hand, he traced along her neck with kisses.
He could contain his desire but not his tempestuous love for her. Even though there wasn’t sex, they were entangled in a passionate kiss.
“You always speak so eloquently during meetings at the Beckett Group. Have you lost all your words after speaking to Winston?”
Alyssa covered herself with a bathrobe. Her soft and delicate body relaxed in his embrace as she drew circles on his Adam’s apple with the tip of her finger. “Can’t you tell that Jameson stole your thunder?
“You were the one who found the killer and set everything up. What right did he have to be there? He is so shameless!”
Jasper was afraid she would fall and quickly held her. He swallowed hard and couldn’t help but peck her delicate lips. “I don’t care who appears as long as it solved your problem and everything ended on a good note. Nothing is as important as making sure you are okay.”
Alyssa felt her nose prickle. Tears welled up in her eyes as she was a loss for words.
This was why she loved him. He didn’t care about anything else but her. She even thought she would never achieve his extent of love.
“It’s a shame that I didn’t manage to make everyone happy.”
Jasper felt absolutely helpless. He took a deep breath and patted her trembling back. “I feel like a student at the bottom of his class. No matter how hard I try now, it always seems too late.”
“I don’t think so. Jasper, you’ve done really well. It’s already pretty great.” Alyssa choked slightly.
Jasper would always be her hero. However, she thought it best not to tell him for fear he would get cocky.
