" Alisa said, her hand was on her swollen stomach which was jutted out with her pregnancy of seventh months.         I instantly got up from the mattress and paced at her. I held her by arm and made her sit on the couch, " You didn't scare me. I was just lost somewhere in my thoughts. " I told her, sitting on the wooden table.        " Why do you start your day with horrible thoughts? " she said and stared at me.       I knew she wanted to forget all that and me also.

" She tilted her head at me, " I saw you when you were looking at him. I haven't seen you looking at any man like this before, indeed you don't pay attention to opposite sex after whatever happened to us. " She said.      I tucked my hair behind my ear and glanced down at the grass, " He's married. " I told her. Indeed, I was feeling hurt that he was married but not to me.      " He adopted Sienna.

Chapter Five
Thea's POV        I frowned as I didn't know where the library was. It was quite impossible for me to find it without wasting hours. " Do you want anything? " He asked, emerging himself in front of me.        I winced and found him behind me. He was still wearing his suit, " Yes, Enna is sleeping. I think I should go home now. " I told him. I was feeling really awkward as I was standing in front of me in my nightclothes.       He took out his phone and held it for me. I looked at him confusingly, " Hello, Thea. " Familiar female voice came.       I quickly grabbed it from his hand and turned off the speaker mode. I brought it up to my ear, " Alisa, Are you alright? Why are you up till now? It's too late. " I told her.      " Relax, Thea. I've sent your clothes and personal things. " I furrowed my eyebrows as I didn't get the me

Chapter Six
  Thea's POV         Walking out of his private plane, we got in his car. Enna sat between us. She climbed in his lap and was glancing out of the window.  She held my hand and took it in her lap. It compelled me to lean closer to them. My eyes widened, when I felt his hand on my waist, tugging me toward them. I was staring at him with parted lips. He raised his brows. I quickly shifted my gaze out of the window.        " We'll see the Eiffel tower. " Enna giggled.        " Sure, sweetheart. Tomorrow. " He said.        I kept quiet all the time and kept my eyes out. I ignored the flip in my stomach when my arm was brushing his torso. I looked at him through the corner of my eyes. His eyes were on mine.       This feeling is strange. When he comes near to me, I want to run away. When he's away I want him around me.

I was holding my breath, "
