Melanie’s temple still hurt a little. “Is something the matter?”
“Oliver and the others picked some fruits from the orchard a few days ago. They’re still quite fresh, so I squeezed some into juice for you.” Xander saw that she did not look too good. Her forehead was covered in a cold sweat. He reached out and pushed her messy hair behind her
He pressed his lips together and asked slowly, “Did you have a nightmare?”
Melanie was taken aback for a moment before she realized what Xander was doing. She subconsciously moved back.
Her reaction was quite evident, and Melanie was embarrassed by it. She frowned and looked at Xander, who had retracted his hand calmly.
He chuckled. “Do you think I’m being presumptuous? I’m sorry.”
Melanie took the juice from him. “Sorry,” she said in a low voice. “I’m just not used to people suddenly touching me.”
Xander wanted to say more, but Melanie’s cell phone suddenly rang from inside her room. She nodded at Xander and turned back to her room to answer the call in relief.
Xander watched her go, lowered his gaze, and turned to leave.
However, before he could go too far, he heard the sound of something crashing to the floor. It came from inside the room.
