Elizabeth returned to her room and quickly ran into the bathroom to take a shower and wash away his taste.
This damned Christian, he should die!
How could he be so… so vicious and so incorrigible?
That was so embarrassing…
She pulled the blanket over her head. That damned, damned, damned Christian.
After Christian exercised, he took a shower in the gym bathroom.
Coldwater poured over his body and he felt much better.
For a moment, it seemed as if his hands were still holding on to her taste and her touch.
That feeling was not detestable at all.
He closed his eyes, but he could not keep his body calm and composed again.
He turned up the tap, wanting to let a bigger stream of cool water engulf his burning body…
By the time he stepped out of the gym bathroom, an hour had passed.

At night, Christian did not sleep beside Elizabeth.
He grudgingly took out his phone to see that it was Chelsea. Christian frowned. He glanced at Elizabeth beside him and then answered. “What’s up, Chelsea?” Chelsea was crying, “My house was burgled; I’m so scared.” “What? Burgled by who? How’s that possible? Who dares to trespass our territory?” “I don't know. The house here that I just moved into. I don’t know what the situation is like here, but I don’t have as much security as your place. Also, I’m living alone, so…” as she spoke, Chelsea’s voice gradually got softer as if she was so scared and compromised. Christian took a deep breath. He had no choice as he looked over at Elizabeth and then tried to soothe Chelsea, “Don’t cry. I'll send my guards to check the place first” "NO!... I mean no, I don't trust anybody at this time. I'm very scared. Please only you can come and help me" Chelsea eminently rejected. "Alright, Don’t cry. I’ll be right there" When he
Chelsea looked at him and panicked. She gritted her teeth and grabbed a Silver knife in the fruit blow beside her, breaking it into pieces as she threw it on the floor. Then, she picked up a knife and cut her own hand…“Chelsea, you…” Christian tried to snatch it away from her but he was too late. The shard had already made a slit on her wrist.Chelsea did not expect it to hurt so much, so she cried in pain, “Christian, I… Everything I do is only so that I can get closer to you. You… Please don’t be angry anymore…”“You… You…” Christian was hopping mad. Chelsea, how could she do that to herself? That kind of self-harm was such a self-loathing act!Then, Chelsea shuddered and collapsed on the floor, yelling in pain.Christian stood there and watched her with dread. He shook his head and called for a car.* * * * * * * * * *At the restauran
At night.Christian waited until nine, but Elizabeth was still not back.At the Ford residence, the maids were scurrying around. When they saw John who had just returned from Canada, they smiled briefly, “Sir is inside.”John acknowledged them and went in to report to Christian. He knocked on the door and entered. Christian immediately got up and stared directly at him.“Sir…” John said, “You don’t need to stand up… I’m back. Yes, I completed my task and came back. I missed you a lot while in Canada, so I finished my task as fast as possible to come back immediately. You…”Before he could finish, Christian already sat back down indifferently, “Oh, it’s settled?”John had to lower his voice as he walked over and cautiously said, “Yes yes, already settled.”“Then you may leave.”“Yes…”John look
Christian stepped towards Elizabeth and looked at her with curiosity, “Are you okay?”Elizabeth was still staring at his particular area until he called her. She jolted awake.Her face was flushed and the tips of her ears were red.She quickly composed herself and pretended as if she had been looking in front of her all along. She chastised herself internally.A perverted, stupid woman. Couldn’t she show more self-restraint? Didn’t she decide not to think about him anymore and treat him like a piece of wood?However, that scene just now was too perfect. Any normal woman seeing a s*xy man like that would have hardly been able to contain herself. Nobody could have avoided staring.She could only blame this Christian. How could there be such a perfect man on Earth? And why did she have to cross paths with him?Furthermore, she still had to face him every day and share a room with him.Why was he striding ar
How could Elizabeth stand it? Her face was bright red while her hand actually touched something hard somewhere, which was growing at an amazing speed and a surprising size. Seriously…Elizabeth looked at the man in front of her, “Y-y-you… Now… Now, what do we do…”Christian looked grimly at the woman in front of him. She still dared to ask what to do…“How am I supposed to know?!” Christian asked in exasperation.Elizabeth was on the verge of crying, “You don’t know and neither do I. It’s your thing, not mine.”Christian lowered his head to look at her. She quickly turned away and pretended not to see his begging expression.Christian curled the corners of his lips and slowly went up to her ear. Looking at her delicate earlobe, he could not help but kiss it gently.Elizabeth’s entire body trembled as she felt a current course through her from his
Chelsea saw that Elizabeth was with Christian but she ignored Elizabeth and grabbed Christian’s arm.She whined, “Christian, why didn’t you come over yesterday? I’m only a few steps away so you can come over regularly.”Christian glanced at Elizabeth and silently pushed Chelsea’s hand.But Chelsea refused to let go of him. She saw Elizabeth turn to look away and her expression became victorious.Elizabeth rolled her eyes, “You guys go ahead then. I’ll take another car.”“Eh, Elizabeth…” Christian called after her, but Elizabeth already walked to the other side and was not turning back.Chelsea pulled Christian over, “It’s okay, Christian. Just leave her be. There are plenty of cars anyway.”Christian stopped and looked at Chelsea. She was always messing things up by staying here. This could not go on.He decided that he should solve this
Meanwhile.Chelsea was at home rewatching the TV play Elizabeth’s and Charles's news.“Acting, she was obviously acting,” Chelsea threw the remote angrily.She must be acting this way in front of Christian so that Christian who disliked her from the start was now treating her well.Just then, someone from outside came in and urged, “Miss, this piece of land has been assessed. Master said that if you don’t move back, you’re done for.”“I… I’m not moving. I’m just not moving. Who wants to assess this land? Assess me together as well,” she yelled angrily, refusing to leave this place.She wanted to be here to watch Christian and Elizabeth, so she could prevent any relationship from developing between them.Chelsea got angrier as she thought about it. She was being chased out this time and it must not be a normal situation. Why was this place suddenly getting assesse
The next day, the Ford family already had made arrangements. The whole family arrived at the private VIP lounge room in the resort.When Christian arrived with Elizabeth, Olivia was already there with the other relatives. She saw them arrive and quickly welcomed them.Their luggage had already been brought in for them. Olivia came over and tugged Elizabeth’s hand. She said, “Ah, you’re still so slim. Seriously, do you even get any fat?”Elizabeth hurriedly said, “It must be my body type. I eat quite a lot.”Christian smiled beside her, “Yes, Mom. She eats more than me, but too bad that it’s all for nothing.”Elizabeth retorted, “Whatever I eat turns into essence. I’m not like you where everything turns into fat. Hmph.”Christian replied, “Ha, you think I’m fat now?”“You said it yourself first.”Olivia saw that the two of them
