“Did you mean that day I fed Kattie?” He sighed and said, “It's all because of you, you made me do that!”
“Did I?” Esther was stunned. “When did I ask you to do that?”
“Why can you wear a man's clothes and I can't feed a woman?” he asked back.
“Uh! You are not going back home yet at night!”
“I was discussing the state of her condition with the doctor that night and I just wanted to let her recover soon to relieve your burden!” He said solemnly.
“But you have been with her for several nights, even if there are caregivers, you are still with her! You didn’t return home at the night I was poisoned?”
“I was in the company that night. Didn't I just go there in the morning? I didn't expect to meet you and Philip early in the morning...”
“Weren't you staying in the hospital that night?” She was a little surprised.
“Well! The only night that I stayed in the hospital was when the expert was invited!”
“Did you purposely act so affectionate with Kattie in front of me?” She asked in disbelief and yet she was still suspicious. “You mean you want me to get jealous?”
He smiled faintly and quietly. Then, he stared at her red lips with some thoughts in his heart.
Suddenly, he clenched his hand hard. He grasped her thoughts and whispered, “Babe, let's make up!”
Esther arched her back uncomfortably, he… It seemed like there was a light tease that itched her heart but her mind was still very messy. “I'm tired, don't touch me!”
He stopped teasing her immediately.
She stated again, “You are allowed to hug me to sleep! However, you are not allowed to touch me!”
“Uh!” He was stunned for a moment. “Babe, you are torturing me purposely!”
His lips slid down slowly. It slid over her chin, lower jaw, and then to her tender neck and her fair chest. Her hot skin was like a fire, and her lips was like a piece of jade that was heating up slowly.
“Elijah, if you dare to touch me tonight, I will run away and stay at Hudson’s house and will never come back again!” She took the opportunity to threaten him.
“Babe, you are looking down on me!” Elijah got into the quilt and embraced her. He stopped moving. “Don't worry, even if you let me have sex with you tonight, I won't do it! Little fool, it's important to keep your health up!”
He had strong self-control which she didn’t know. Although he was suffering, he could bear it for her health.
The next day.
Esther was brought to the company by Elijah.
Esther was curious and so she asked him after he parked his car in front of the company. “Not going to visit Kattie?”
“She has those caregivers!” Elijah said solemnly.
“You are so strange!” Esther frowned. He didn't do anything to her last night. She fell asleep soon in his arms.
She ate the lovely breakfast that was cooked by him in the morning and there was no class all day. She would go for a theory class entitled “Introduction to Design” in the evening and he promised to go with her to that evening class. As for the day, he would go to his company to handle some things so normally he would bring her together to his company.
Esther’s indifferent handsome face showed a touch of gentleness when he looked at her. He taking care of Kattie was just out of humanitarian concerns. It could be said that it was a favor but not a complete obligation.
“Ethel!” Esther saw Ethel of a sudden who was walking towards the building. Immediately, she got her hand out from Elijah’s hand and ran towards Ethel. “Ethel, long time no see!”
“Uh!” Elijah was wondering if his charming level had dropped too sharply. How could she leave him to find another man?
Seeing Esther who was running hurriedly to him, Ethel thought of Elijah’s depression a few days ago. Then, he smiled treacherously and evilly, “Esther, tell me, what happened to you these few days? Have you made up with Elijah?”
“What? I am coming to visit Lilah!” Esther stated it clearly in an instant.
Ethel looked back at Elijah who was walking not far behind him. But he was still hugging Esther’s slender waist fearlessly. He turned around to look at Elijah’s stiff and handsome face. Then, he acted even more presumptuously which brought his handsome face near Esther’s neck. “Esther, Elijah called me to drink in the midnight a few days ago, were both of you in the term of not speaking now?”
“Drinking?” Esther was stunned. “Go drinking?”
“Of course, think about it, if a man doesn't sleep in the midnight but goes to drink alcohol, he must have got a cold shoulder and it’s sure that he is very depressed. 80% of it is because he was dissatisfied with desire!” He was still holding Esther’s waist with his hand. Ethel was speaking with a smile, talking affectionately on Esther’s face until...
“Ah! Who attacked me!” There was an intense pain on the back of his hand. Ethel let out a miserable moan and let go of his hand that placed on Esther’s waist quickly, rubbing on the red and swollen back of his painful hand which was hurt by a marble. His gaze with pain quickly looked behind himself and then he saw Elijah who had already strode over.
There was some dice on the floor. After it was bounced off from Ethel’s hand, it rolled to the back to the floor.
“Don't you want your hand?” A low and cold voice sounded. Elijah stared at Ethel’s obstructive hand with his displeased eyesight. Then, he walked to Esther’s side and hooked her waist domineeringly.
“Hey! Esther is my sister, you even get jealous of your brother-in-law!” Ethel was rubbing his swollen hands and screamed in protest. “Elijah, do you have humanity? I have known you for so many years, Elijah, you simply have forgotten your friend after having your lover!”
“You have been very free these days!” Elijah glanced at Ethel with a warning look in his cold eyes. Then, he walked towards the elevator with a hand placing around Esther’s slender waist.
That was the first time for him to appear in front of the company's subordinates with his hand placing around Esther’s waist.
The receptionists were taken aback when they saw Esther being placed in the CEO’s arms and walked into the special elevator.
“What’s wrong with you, Ethel?” Esther had no idea why Ethel scream of a sudden, but she knew that Elijah must have done something.
“You are my woman, I will not allow any man to take advantage of you!” Elijah put his arm around her waist, tightened it, and replied to her in his deep voice.
Esther was dumbfounded. Then, she lifted her eyes and looked up at his face. His sturdy handsome face made her startle, “Did he take advantage of me?”
“Little fool!” Elijah lowered his head and kissed her lips. “I am the only person who can touch your body!”
She trembled in her heart due to his domineering declaration.
If Elijah lowered his head at that moment, he would find that Esther’s eyes were flashing with moving to throb. “What if a woman takes your advantage from now on?”
“I can cut off that woman's hand for you!” He tightened his arm around her waist. His falcon-like black eyes flashed and stared at her. His hand that was holding Ester suddenly tightened, “Babe, in the future, no matter what happens, you must remember that you are my only woman, you are my only one.”
Esther looked at Elijah’s big hand that wrapped her small hand and his oath reverberated in her ears. She pulled her hand back suddenly looked at him with a dignified and suspicious look.
“What's the matter?” Elijah was stunned. He was wondering why she was not touched but looked at him angrily.
“Then next time you should chop off your hand before you feed another woman!” She said angrily.
“Okay! From now on, my gentleness will only belong to you!” After a stunning start, a deep and husky voice echoed in the quiet elevator. Elijah looked at the angry Esther. His silly girl was different from other people. Most of the women would feel touched and hug him in that atmosphere, even if not at least they might have a happy smile but she was so special that who would blame him unexpectedly.
“Babe, your possessiveness is as strong as mine! You deserve to be my woman!” Elijah raised the corner of his lips with a satisfied smile.
“Eh, I'm going to see Song Yan, stop!” Esther looked at the floor of the charity department.
“Don't go!” He hugged her and forbade her to press the elevator button.
“I'll go up and find you later!” She said.
He then let go of her. “Well, half an hour! If you haven't gotten up within half an hour, I'll go down and get you in person!”
“Okay!” She yelled anxiously, holding the door key. “I'm going!”
Esther hadn’t seen Lilah for a long time. Since she was coming to the company, she would like to see Lilah. She walked to the charity department but she did not see Ethel. Lilah seemed to be sitting behind the computer screen, facing the door and watching something. She was wearing a headset.
“Lilah?” Esther greeted Lilah but she didn't respond.
Esther was stunned for a while and heard Lilah let out an exclamation. “Wow! You must be kidding me?”
Esther walked over quietly. Lilah hadn’t noticed her yet. Esther was already standing in front of her, but she didn’t notice her at all. Then, Esther walked to her and looked at what she was watching. Esther was curious about what Lilah was watching and she was so concentrated and even didn’t know her coming in!
Unexpectedly, Esther was completely stunned when she looked at it—
A scream pierced through the office of the charity department and also penetrated Lilah’s eardrum.
She jumped up with fright.
“Esther, why are you here?”
“You, you, Lilah, you watch sex video!” Esther pointed at her in her blushing face...
(Cannot be described) ...
“I am bored!” Lilah said, “How are you? Elijah asked you to go to school. How’s your study?”
“So-so! Lilah, please continue watching your video! I'll go upstairs!” She decided not to watch it.
“It's not fun to watch without a sound. Come on, use a headset!” Lilah said stubbornly and placed a headset on Esther...
(Cannot be described) ...
“Lilah, I don’t want to watch!” Esther yelled.
When Ethel came in, he saw the two of them pulling and pushing each other, “What are you all doing?”
(Cannot be described) ...
Lilah was not having any embarrassment on her face. “Watching porn, you're not coming at the right time!”
Esther listened to their conversation in shock and rushed out like escaping.
“Lilah—” Esther who ran out in her blushing face heard a roar from Ethel. “Damn it! You let Esther watch pornography!”
“It is just a coincidence, okay? What's wrong with watching a video? Don’t make a fuss!” Lilah didn't take it seriously, “You are not coming at the right time! It's Esther who is too innocent. I will have to teach her more about it someday.” Teach her and let her learn a little bit! We women just want to play with you stinky men!”
“Lilah, you are shameless! I must tell your man about it!” Ethel said fiercely.
“Just go! I am not afraid of it!”
Esther rushed into the elevator in one breath and pressed the top floor which Elijah was staying at. Oh my God, Lilah was too foolish. Esther patted her blushing and hot face in the elevator. The elevator went up to the top floor in a while and yet Esther still felt that her face was so hot.
She was still in shock until the elevator door opened.
The secretary had already been ordered by Elijah. Thus, she immediately greeted Esther with a smile when she saw her coming in, “Miss Price, the CEO said that you can enter directly.”
“Oh!” Esther rushed into Elijah’s office with her blushing face.
Elijah was working on the documents behind his desk. He was a little surprised to see her coming in in a hurry. “What happens?”
“Uh! Puff!” Esther sighed and sat down on the sofa.
Elijah was taken aback. He found that her face was flushed, and something was wrong with her. “Babe, what's happening?”
He stood up and walked to the back of the sofa. Then, he leaned down. His deep and mellow voice rang in Esther’s ears. “Why is your face flushing?”
Esther opened her horrified eyes suddenly. Her face flushed to the base of her ears and the red color of it just seemed like bleeding. “No, no! I'm fine!"
His approach made her recall the scene she saw just now involuntarily. Suddenly, her breathing accelerated, and her heartbeat also accelerated. Her face was blushing and her eyes drooped. She dared not to raise her head.
