Yale hugged Krystal from behind.
“Ethan only cares about his status and personal interests. He
abandoned his wife and married Marina in order to get the Carltons
on his side. He’s a despicable man.”
“That’s not right. If he only cares about his interests, why didn’t he try
to get me on his side? Is the Heath Family not better than the
Carltons?” Krystal suddenly found the fault in Yale’s logic.
A hint of somberness flashed in Yale’s eyes. He quickly changed the
“Maybe the reason he didn’t try that is because he is plotting something else. Think about all he has done so far, Krystal.
“He’s an ingrate. He has been doing things that humiliated you. He
even caused you to be driven from your home.”
As Krystal was crying, Yale reached out to wipe away her tears.
He said affectionately, “Don’t be afraid. I’ll stand by your side no matter what happens. I’m the one who loves you the most, Krystal.”
Krystal raised her head to meet his tender gaze. There was a glow in her eyes as she asked, “Do you really love me?”
“Without a doubt. Krystal, don’t you feel my affection for you after all these years?”
Yale sighed. “It must be my fault. I must have failed to express my
feelings properly. I will try to treat you better.”
Krystal had been chasing after Ethan for many years.
She was starting to fall for Yale since he said such nice things when
she had been abandoned by everyone else.
Truthfully, Yale wasn’t as handsome as Ethan, but he was still
charming. He was tall and elegant. She felt safe in his arms.
At that moment, Krystal was starting to be moved by Yale’s
confession. So, he took the opportunity to go on the offensive.
“Krystal, you must be hungry since you haven’t eaten anything. I’ll
make you some food.”
“You can cook?”
“All good men can. I learned how to cook for you. Just wait.”
Yale let her go and went to open the fridge confidently.
No one had lived in this villa for some time.
Even if the housekeepers cleaned the place, there wasn’t enough time for them to stock up the supplies. The fridge was completely empty.
“There aren’t any ingredients. I can’t cook even if I want to.”
Yale took her hand. “Let’s go. I’ll take you out for a bite. What do you
want to eat?”
Krystal didn’t really have an appetite. She was humiliated because
she had been driven out of her home.
She wasn’t in the mood for food, but her stomach rumbled against
“If you don’t say anything, I’ll decide for you.”
Yale brought her out. She thought he would bring her to some high- end restaurant. Instead, he brought her to the night market.
It was snowing. The lights shone brightly like stars. The night market. was very lively. Many couples were hanging out there.
That was something Krystal had never experienced throughout her
She never knew that the street food she looked down on could taste
“Are you cold?”
A gust of cold wind blew on her neck. She nodded.
Yale immediately wrapped a scarf around her neck and put a hat on
“This way, you won’t be cold anymore.”
Krystal raised her head to look at his handsome face. Her heartbeat suddenly quickened.
It would only take one instant to fall in love.
Yale gazed at her tenderly. “Krystal, look around you. Ethan isn’t the
only man in the world. Take a look at me, too.”
