There wasn’t any change in Linus’ tone. “Are you sure you’re alright?”
“I’m a doctor, Mr. Heath. I know my condition very well. Thanks for the concern. It’s getting cold. You should rest up.”
The footsteps faded out, and Ethan buried his face in her neck. “Linus
has taken a liking to you.”
Linus and Olivia had been getting along as friends, and he had been showing an interest in her.
Although Olivia thought that it was not that likely, she could feel that he was paying a little too much attention to her.
She couldn’t distinguish the cause of such attention, whether it was
due to love or gratitude.
“Don’t take everything as a love matter.”
Ethan bent over to carry her to the bed. “You’re still as naive as ever,
Liv. There’s no such thing as pure goodwill. When a man cares for a
woman, it can’t be anything else than love.”
Her tresses lay across the sheet. He held a strand of it to his nose to
sniff it. “Unfortunately, you’re mine and can only be mine.”
The night was meant to be a crazy night.
Tatiana brought over a basin of water to Mason’s side. Tatiana had
mixed Olivia’s herbs in it so that he could have a foot spa.
“Mason, we’ve known each other for decades. We’ve been through thick and thin together. Now, we’re already over 70 years old. Time
really does fly.”
He lifted her chin. “You’re still beautiful. I’m the only one aging.”
She was younger than him by over ten years. Long years of
dedication to work had definitely taken a toll on his appearance,
unlike her. Tatiana did facial care every day.
Rather than a couple, they appeared more like a father and daughter.
She held Mason’s hand. “Nonsense. Everyone grows old. Marrying
you is the luckiest thing that ever happened to me. There’s only one
thing left on my mind, our children.”
“I know what you want to say, but Ethan ain’t willing to marry her. I
can’t just force him with a knife over his neck, can I?”
“There’s no need for that. I’m just asking for your support if I have a
better idea to make him marry her.”
“Are you thinking about those underhanded methods again? I’m
telling you, the situation now is totally different. My status back then
was different from Ethan’s.” Mason clearly had some bad
experiences with that.
“It doesn’t matter how we make it work. What matters is it works. I’ve
given you plenty of time. Since you can’t deal with him, leave it to me.”
He realized something. “No wonder you insisted on me hosting this
party. You told me that you wanted to look for someone suitable for Linus. But you’re actually up to something else!
“Have you ever thought about your identity? Put the possibility of
success aside, even if the plan is successful, do you want Ethan to
look down on us forever?”
Tatiana’s expression turned cold. “I only know that you taught me
that there’s nothing I can’t do as long as I give my all in whatever I do.”
Mason placed his hand over his chest. “Did I say that so that you
could do such shameless deeds? You’re seriously going to give me a
heart attack. Where are they? Stop them! Hurry!”
She sneered. “It’s too late. The maid told me that she heard noises
coming from the room. I’m afraid Ethan is giving Krystal all his love,
mistaking her for Olivia.”
He slapped her. “Just what did you do!”
