Chapter 23 – sneezing
It has been raining heavily here for three days in a row.
The night was very dark.
Outside the villa, the wind blew against the trees outside the villa, making a
When Ace woke up for the fourth time from his dream about Anna, a cold
sweat broke out on his back.
He was sleepy and dizzy, his limbs were heavy and he was sneezing, all
symptoms that made it clear to him that he had a cold.
Ace was weak all over. His head was a little dizzy when he went downstairs
to look for medicine, and the temperature on himself was unbearably high.
The medicines were separated into different categories, which made it easy
for him to find medicines for colds and fevers.
Ace frowned as he froze in place for a long moment.
“Ace, I’ve organized the medicine chest. These are the common medicines
you’ll need at home. If you get sick while I’m not here, remember to take your
medicine and get better ……”
A gentle, thoughtful voice seemed to ring in his ears as Ace’s headache grew

Ace stared into the woman’s worried eyes, but another face appeared
His eyes darkened.
Lily’s fingers gently stroked the man’s face, “Ace, you know what? You slept

Lily stood up and stared into the man’s eyes, biting her lip tentatively, “Ace, why don’t …… we have the wedding sooner? Or maybe I’ll move in with you and have the wedding later. Please let me take good care of you. It breaks my heart to see you like this……”
