Chapter 4: Don't I Deserve a Thank You?

The black car stopped in front of Smith’s Villa.

Ellena was about to unfasten the seat belt when Edward suddenly leaned over. Before she could even react, his slender and beautiful fingers, he pressed lightly on the dark buckle of the seat belt. The seat belt was immediately released with a slight snap.

His face was handsome and compelling and was getting closer to her. As they faced each other, Ellena’s mind was settled and was as still as water. She couldn’t help but blush when she looked at his face and there was a trace of confusion in her glassy eyes.

This man’s face was pretty enough to attract any woman he wanted. Whether old or young, she was hundred percent sure that they’d all fall victim to this man’s charm.

However, as soon as Ellena remembered what he had done yesterday, her look returned to normal.

He was nothing but a rich and nasty young kid who coveted his sister-in-law, like a spoiled child who wanted what he couldn’t get.

She lifted her head and adjusted her glasses. Her face showed little emotion and she said, “I’m getting off.”


Edward narrowed his eyes and there was a look of anger in his deep black eyes.

Ellena was keenly aware of this change and tried to get out of the car. As she was about to open the car door and get off, an arm caught her hand and grabbed her.

He was strong, with his long arms across her. Looking from the outside, it almost seemed like he was holding her in an embrace.

Through her glasses, he looked straight at her eyes which were as clear as water, and said deliberately, “I took you home, don’t I deserve a ‘thank you’?”

Ellena lowered her head, flinching a little and whispered, “Thank you.”

If the people of Smith family see her like this, they would usually leave her alone. She hoped “Nicklaus” would feel the same and just back off.

After all, she was supposed to engaged to Edward, not his cousin. She still needed to give her husband some face, willing or not! Nicklaus could just go and screw himself! Didn’t he know normal etiquette?

Edward looked at her slightly closed pink lips and his face got darker. He said softly, “It seems your appreciation is insincere. I guess I have to take that ‘thanks’ myself.”

Although her face was uneven and spotty, there was something about her lips that pulled him in.

With the thought, he leaned over and kissed her lips.

As he was kissing her, he thought, she’s my legitimate wife. Why should I hide my desire to kiss her?

Ellena could not even comprehend what was happening. One minute ago, she was close to bite his head off, and now, she could feel an icy surface slamming against her lips.

She stared at the enlarged face in front of her eyes, reaching out to push him away, only to find that her hands had been clasped tightly.

Edward was very satisfied with her reaction. He reached out a hand and took off her glasses to reveal her clear and bright eyes.

Her having no glasses was far more pleasing to the eyes.

Her face turned red from anger, and she could feel her hands clenching to her sides. She still hadn’t given up in struggling against him.

This man was too presumptuous to dare treat her this way at the door of her families’ house! Didn’t he have any shame? Didn’t he feel sorry for his cousin at least?

When the kiss ended, he left her lips but still wanted more.

‘That was great, I should try that again once there’s a chance.’ He thought.

After coming back to his sense, he said in a commanding voice, “Don’t wear glasses anymore. Otherwise, I will kiss you every time I see you.”

He deliberately lowered the volume of his voice to make his point. His eyes were checking over her entire body unscrupulously.

He was like some kind of ferocious beast marking his territory and sizing up his prey.

“What the…” Before Ellena could call him out on this, a female voice broke the silence in the car.


Ellena heard the words and turned her head to look out of the half-open car window. She gasped.

Madeline’s eyes widened in shock, half surprised and half angry, “What are you doing here?”

Ellena clasped her hands tightly, a flash of anxiety flashed in her eyes.

Of all the people who could’ve seen her, it was her mother!

On the first day of her marriage, a strange man hitting on her, in front of her house… it was hard to defend.

Despite all that was happening, Madeline also had to maintain her dignity. She looked around and saw Ellena, and said, “Come here.”

Knowing that she had no other choice, Ellena stepped out of the car. Although her face appeared impassive, her lips remained swollen as a reminder of their last activity. Her cheeks remained flushed red as well.

As soon as she got out of the car, Madeline wasted no more time and pulled her into the villa.

Unexpectedly, Edward leaned his head out of the car window, and sinfully rubbed his lips with his fingers, saying casually, “My sister-in-law, I will wait for you to come back.”
