Despite being in Heath residence, Ethan reveled in the pleasure too much.
Olivia was being devoured inside out.
Forget about getting out of bed, she thought her bones were going to break from lifting her arm.
“Mr. Heath is going to keep the Kingstons entertained today. You can keep me company.”
Resting against his chest, Olivia huffed and puffed, trying to catch her breath.
She hadn’t returned to her senses from the intense wave of pleasure.
“If I remember correctly, you’ve always kept yourself restrained in whatever you do. Why did you become so untrammeled?”
At that time, he acted like a ruler in whatever he did. Even the gaze he gave her at home was cold.
Now, everything was different. A glance from Olivia was enough to
turn Ethan into a Golden Retriever that would pounce on her.
His overloaded enthusiasm was hard for her to keep up with.
“I was too naive back then. I didn’t realize how precious you were to
me until I lost you.” His fingertips traced along her smooth cheek. ” Liv, after experiencing so many things, do you know how happy I am to be able to still hug you?”
It took a lot of lessons for one to realize one’s desires.
There were a lot of things fettering Ethan’s freedom during his younger days.
When he lost the person he cherished, he regretted it from the bottom of his heart, day and night.
It wasn’t easy for him to discover that ray of hope to live again.
No matter what it took, he was determined not to return to that slump of darkness.
It was not until night that he left the room with a heavy heart.
Now that the source of chaos had disappeared, Olivia was able to get
a good night’s rest. She was all spirited the next day.
Today, she needed to perform acupuncture on Marina.
Olivia specially made breakfast for Mason, who had a restless sleep last night.
Tired, he rested his hand on his temple.
“Grandpa Mason, did you not sleep last night again?”
“That’s normal for old people.”
Olivia initially wanted to leave after serving breakfast. But the sight of his listless expression elicited a sigh from her. “Lie down. I’ll give your
“You know a lot.”
“I learned a lot of traditional medicine from my grandmother.”
Mason closed his eyes. “Do you miss your family?”
“So what if I miss them? I don’t know where they are or who they are.” Helplessness seeped into her voice.
“Don’t be pressured by your kids’ matters. It’s their lives. Your injury is a serious one. The emotional stress from overthinking won’t do you good. I can treat your body, but not your mental illness.”
“If only my daughter were as mature as you are, I’d be able to get a good night’s sleep.”
“Ms. Heath grew up pampered. It’s not a bad thing for her to suffer a little. She’ll grow up.”
“I’m embarrassed that you saw that.”
Olivia shook her head. “Don’t be. Everyone drank a lot that night, and she’s young. It’s easy to cross the line considering the situation.”
“Thanks for the massage. I feel much better.”
“I’ll prescribe some medicine for you. Ask someone to get the ingredients. When I return, I’ll make a bag of herbs to aid your sleep. You can put it under your pillow.”
Mason drifted into sleep during Olivia’s massage. She realized that he
depended on her very much.
It would be easy for her to murder him right now, but she didn’t have al
reason to do so.
She took a blanket to drape it over him. When she walked out of the
room, she informed the maids not to enter so as to not disturb him.
After putting on a coat, she left the house in a hurry. A car was prepared for her.
Getting into the car, she met Linus’ eyes.
His expression was impassive as he wore a black coat. “I’m heading somewhere. I can drop you off along the way.”
“Thanks.” Olivia stayed close to the car door, leaving a huge space in between.
He asked, “Are you afraid of me?”
“No, what I have for you is respect,” she answered confidently. Her eyes were free from clouds of fear.
Linus rested his hands on his knees. His posture was always upright wherever he was.
“I heard that the drink you had was drugged.” He suddenly leaned toward her, driving her to a corner.
His glint was shrewd. “How did you pull it through?”
