Olivia’s voice was firm and decisive.
It was obvious that she no longer had any love for him; she only harbored hatred.
If Olivia had spoken those words in the past, Ethan would be furious.
But now, there wasn’t even a hint of dissatisfaction on his face. He only felt remorse.
“As long as I’m alive, I’ll be thinking of ways to exact revenge.
“Ethan, stop wasting your time and effort. You’re one of my enemies as well.”
“Liv, I only want to treat you well.”
While they were waiting for the traffic lights to turn green, he held the fruit tea to her mouth.
“It’s sweet and sour. The taste is quite nice.”
Unable to withstand the temptation, Olivia took a sip. After getting pregnant, she was fond of sweet
and sour foods.
Oranges and passion fruits were her favorites. If paired with limes and grapefruits, the refreshing taste would be heavenly.
She couldn’t get enough of it with just a sip. Holding the cup, she continued drinking.
The sweet and sour taste eased the nausea in her stomach, and she felt much better.
The sad look on Ethan’s face gradually disappeared as well. He brought Olivia to a restaurant they used to frequent.
“Aren’t we going to the concert?”
“It’s still early. Aren’t you hungry?” Lowering his gaze, he looked gently at her.
“No,” Olivia said stubbornly.
Ethan wasn’t mad about it. He put on a faint smile. “Then keep me company while I eat.”
With that, he extended his hand. He wanted to take her hand like he used to.
But he only felt Olivia’s limp hand on his palm. He froze.
For a moment, he forgot that Olivia’s hand had turned out like this because of him.
A look of guilt appeared in his eyes.
Olivia put on a mocking smile. “See that? Do you still think we can go back to who we were?”
Ethan left with her hand in his.
He didn’t say another word on their way there. But when they entered the elevator, he would step in front of Olivia so no one else could see her.
They went to Olivia’s favorite spot in the past.
From the high altitude, they could see most of the city and even the coastline in the distance.
The lit windows in the city looked like stars that had descended upon the earth.
They looked wonderful.
But Olivia wasn’t in the mood to admire the view. Lowering her head, she ate some light food.
She was guarding against the nauseousness, but her stomach had decided to be nice to her this time.
She didn’t feel nauseous at all.
Olivia finally noticed that most of the food tonight had a tangy flavor.
There was not an oily dish in sight.
Even for the main course, Ethan had chosen pasta instead of steak.
The waiter served the wine they loved in the past. Ethan spoke up. “Some lime juice for her, please.”
Olivia stared at him with suspicion.
Ethan explained calmly. “I heard that you have had digestion problems recently. So, you can’t consume anything spicy or stimulating.”
“That’s right.” As Olivia ate the fruit pizza, she couldn’t help but wonder if he knew about her
If he did, then it wouldn’t make sense for him to stay quiet about it.
Olivia felt that the man in front of her was hiding even more than before.
She couldn’t fathom his thoughts at all.
Ethan was very gentlemanly that night. He not only finished dinner with her, but he also kept her company throughout the concert.
But Olivia was so sleepy that she began nodding off before the concert ended.
When her head leaned against Ethan’s shoulder, Ethan was stunned. He then angled his body to look
at Olivia’s peaceful face.
He wondered when was the last time she touched him of her own accord.
He didn’t budge, fearing that he might wake Olivia up.
When Olivia woke up, she realized that she wasn’t in the Manor of Roses, nor was she at the concert
Turning around to look, she found herself sleeping on an airbed.
Getting off the bed, she emerged from the tent and spotted Ethan nearby. He was crouching and catching fireflies.
