Chapter 167 Are You Unhappy?
Terrence’s eyes turned cold and he suddenly stepped on the
brakes. Alexa almost cried out in alarm.
“You are very unhappy, aren’t you?”
The dim yellow street lights spilled in, and Terrence’s face appeared cold and gloomy in the dark, adding a trace of
There were only the two of them in the carriage, and the
streets outside were extremely cold.
Alexa’s righteous indignation soon weakened. She was
Terrence stared at her face, making Alexa feel uncomfortable
“Well, not happy.” Alexa nodded honestly, “Do you want to
drive me out of the car?”
Alexa’s self-deprecating look pricked Terrence’s heart like a
“You are quite proud.”
As soon as Terrence spoke, the atmosphere was immediately frozen.
He was even more upset.
“Didn’t you say that you would go home? So you and Kieran
are a family.”
Alexa was indeed unable to refute it. She lowered her eyebrows
without saying anything, her eyelashes fluttering.
“Say something.” Terrence endured his anger and felt irritated. “Are you feeling guilty?”
“I have nothing to say. It’s all my fault.”
Terrence was so angry with her, but in the end, he did not say
The car started again, and Alexa was so sleepy that she was
about to fall asleep. Suddenly, Terrence’s voice came from the
“What do you want to eat?”
Alexa was stunned for a moment and turned to look out the
Terrence must be talking to himself. How could he still be in
the mood to talk to her?
Not long after, Alexa heard him pull his collar impatiently.
“I’m asking you what you want to eat.”
Alexa instantly came back to her senses and looked at him timidly, her eyes red from the wind.
“Oh, me? I’m not hungry.” She seemed to wake up from a

Alexa was very obedient. She did whatever Terrence asked her
In public, he did not hold her hand.
Alexa followed behind Terrence and stared at his broad and
solid back, lost in thought.
She felt that she was now like a well-trained cat, waiting for
her master’s orders at any time.
Unexpectedly, he suddenly stopped. Alexa suddenly hit his
back and instantly interrupted Terrence.
Terrence and the waiter both looked over.
Alexa said weakly, trying her best to hide.
Terrence glanced at her quickly and casually ordered a few
dishes before the waiter left.
“Are you peeping at me?”
“No!” Alexa replied firmly, “I just…”
“Just what? Are you thinking about someone else?” Terrence
Alexa said a few words and then ignored him. Terrence did not
mind and ate his food.
He ate quickly, but he was elegant enough.
Alexa was not hungry, but when she watched Terrence eat, she suddenly gained a little appetite.
Before she spoke, he handed over a plate of cut steak.
Alexa did not stand at the ceremony with him. After all, after getting scolded so many times, she deserved a steak.
Knowing that she was timid, Terrence did not say much.
Thinking of the table he saw at the Powell family, Terrence
called the waiter and ordered a few dishes that Alexa might love to eat based on his impression.
“Don’t go back until you are full.”
Terrence said simply. Alexa timely put down her forks and drank half a glass of coconut milk.
“I’m full. Can I go back?”
Alexa’s positive attitude was abnormal, and Terrence couldn’t help but retort.
“We are not going back to the Duran family. It’s the villa you live in now. You have to make it clear.”
“Yes, I know.”
Alexa changed three places of residence, and the concept of home in Terrence’s heart had long been blurred.
Now hearing Alexa’s simple response, Terrence put down his knife and fork and was stunned for a moment.
After the meal, his mood seemed to have improved a lot.
Alexa just got up, and Terrence skillfully wrapped his arm around her waist and left the restaurant in high spirits.
“Do you need to take a walk? Will your stomach be uncomfortable?” Terrence asked for the first time.
Alexa shook her head and leaned weakly against the back of the
“I’m so sleepy.”
“Then let’s go home now.”
The sky was getting darker.
When Terrence parked the car at the door of the house, the
person beside him had already fallen asleep.
He was not impatient at all. Instead, he walked around and gently carried Alexa away.
Alexa was very thin. Looking at her thin and peaceful face,
Terrence frowned slightly.
She did not seem to pay attention to her health at all.
The person in his arms trusted his embrace very much. Her face relaxed as she leaned against the crook of his arm, hiding
her stubbornness and determination.
Compared to when she was awake, Terrence preferred the sleeping Alexa.
He carried her back to the room and then began to clean
When he saw the set of neat sleeping robes by the bed,
Terrence’s eyes darkened.
After thinking for a long time, Terrence began to untie her
He looked very serious. When he saw Alexa’s flat belly,
Terrence could not move his eyes away.
It was hard to imagine that this thin body would give birth to a
brand new life.
Terrence involuntarily covered his hand on her lower abdomen.
The slightly hot touch made Alexa shrink unconsciously.
The child in her womb had yet to mature.
However, his heart was filled with fear and confusion about
this unborn life.
Even now, Terrence still did not accept this fact.
How could Alexa be… How could she be pregnant with
someone else’s child?
What was even more unsolvable was that he did not hate her,
nor did he have the determination to sever ties with her.
She was truly in front of him right now, but he felt so
Terrence hardened his heart and got up, then his wrist was
He turned around in surprise. Alexa was still sleeping smoothly, but her hand was gripping him tightly.
The person on the bed did not react at all. Terrence crouched
down and heard Alexa’s soft murmur.
“Okay, I won’t go.”
Terrence responded softly, but Alexa held him even tighter.
“Don’t leave me. Don’t leave me…’
Alexa’s crying became more and more obvious, and Terrence’s
hand was even scratched with blood.
But he had no intention of letting go at all. He crouched down
beside Alexa’s bed and patiently responded to her ravings.
“Alexa, don’t worry. I won’t leave.”
She seemed to have heard his words, and her voice gradually
Terrence helped her cover the corner of her quilt and suddenly
found that Alexa’s face was very red.
He immediately put his hand on her forehead, and the temperature there was indeed frighteningly high.
“You have a fever. I’ll get the antipyretic.”
“Don’t worry.” Terrence touched the hair on her forehead. “I’ll
be back soon.”
Alexa suddenly released her hand and vaguely said some
Terrence quickly went out to find the antipyretic, and when he
returned to the room, Alexa had already fallen under the bed.
