Ethan saw that Olivia was determined, so he didn’t refuse.
“It’s a little far away. You can rest in the car.”
Olivia said stiffly, “No need. I’m not tired.”
She nodded off after ten minutes, and her head was tapping on the car window. Ethan looked at her sheepishly. He wouldn’t bite. She didn’t have to lean against the window.
Reaching out, he pulled her over to him. Olivia opened her eyes and saw what he was doing. She tried to struggle but was too sleepy to do so and quickly fell asleep in his embrace.
Her body craved sleep during this period of time, so she slept through the entire journey. Ethan looked at her quietly. It had been a long time since he could sit quietly with Olivia. The past couple of years had been chaotic. He hoped that the time would pass slower.
The car drove up a hill, and the sky was completely dark. Olivia began to wake up. She realized, that she was in Ethan’s arms and quickly moved away. Ethan sighed sheepishly.
Olivia’s voice was a little hoarse as she just woke up. She asked, “When will we arrive?”
“In a few minutes. We’re almost there.”
The car fell into silence after that exchange. Ethan took out some cream puffs that he had prepared.
“You must be hungry after the long ride. These were made in the afternoon. You should eat some.”
Olivia accepted the food without speaking. She didn’t try to fight him. The most important thing was to fill her stomach. The car stopped at a resort after she finished eating a cream puff.
It was in the depths of the mountain, and the environment was quiet. They could hear insects chirping when they got out of the car. There was also a stream nearby, and flowing water could be heard. It was a good place for rest and meditation.
Olivia could tell that Ethan came here often. He brought her to a room without much trouble. He
knocked on the door, but it didn’t open.
The attendant outside the door said, “Ms. Miller said she had a headache and didn’t want us to
disturb her. She might be asleep.”
“Let’s go in.”
Olivia opened the door directly. She wanted to settle the score with Leia.
The room was dark, and the window was open. The wind blew at the curtains, and there was a lump on the bed. Walking over, Olivia pulled away the blanket. But there were only two pillows on the bed.
while Leia was nowhere to be found.
“This is bad. She’s escaped!” Olivia ran toward the window and noticed a figure jumping directly
from the third-floor drainage pipe.
“Leia Miller!” Olivia yelled.
Leia, who had gotten to the first floor, smiled at Olivia. “This isn’t over yet, Olivia. It’ll never be over
until one of us is dead.”
Leia ran into the woods after she said that. A group of bodyguards were chasing after her. “Ms. Miller, stop running!”
Olivia turned to look at Ethan. “Leia, she…”
Ethan had already shot past her before she could complete her sentence. He was already over the wall when she came to her senses. He was running after Leia, following her trail.
Ethan was very fast. He landed on the first floor in a few seconds. He ran after Leia without hesitation.
Olivia stood in a daze as she watched Ethan disappear into the woods. Leia was his sister, after all. He would always place more importance on her.
Olivia clutched her chest, wondering if she had siblings from her birth parents. Would she ever find them?
Suddenly, a gunshot sounded nearby, and birds scattered in fright.
