Chapter 58 What Is Your Birthday Wish?
Terrence suddenly became nervous and quickly handed her a tissue.
“Sorry,” he said apologetically. “Don’t cry.”
He remembered Alexa rarely cried.
However, she would never tell him her emotions.
But ever since he proposed a divorce, Alexa had been emotionally unstable.
Although he did not love her, Terrence’s original intention of marrying her was not to hurt her.
Alexa cried softly but did not say anything.
The tissue Terrence had given her was soaked.
“I will give you an explanation for today.
“I saw my father jump down from the rooftop of the company. My mother had a heart attack and died in the emergency room just after she was sent there. Later, my brother was taken away by the creditor and never came back.” Alexa’s tone was extremely calm.
“I watched them leave me, but I couldn’t do anything.
“I was haunted by nightmares, and it made me wish I were dead.
“I really … hate birthdays.”
Alexa had just calmed down, but now she felt excited again.
But her eyes hurt so much that not a single tear could form.
Terrence opened his mouth, but in the end, he hugged her tightly without saying a word.
“I am sorry.”
“I often wonder why I am the only one who lives a life of ignominy.”
“Alexa,” Terrence interrupted her in a firm tone. “You’re a member of the Ramsey family now. No matter what happens, we will never abandon you.”
When she heard him mention the Ramsey family, the sorrow in Alexa’s eyes quickly subsided. The pain in her heart instantly formed a scab, and it was harder than invulnerable armor.
“Hurry up and make your wish,” Terrence lit the candles and said. “What is your birthday wish?”
“I can’t tell you. It won’t work if I tell you,” Alexa said seriously.
Terrence chuckled and watched her slowly close her eyes.
This was the most harmonious and pleasant dinner ever.
Alexa said a lot to ‘Terrence.
The subjects were diversified, and she wasn’t uncomfortable telling him about them.
When she was excited, Terrence’s phone rang
Alexa immediately stopped talking and said “sensibly”, “Take it.”
Terrence glanced at the caller ID and immediately hung up.
“Continue,” he said softly.
“Is it really okay?”
“She should be calling to apologize.”
As Terrence spoke, the phone rang again.
Noticing Alexa seemed to mind, Terrence handed her the phone.
“Do you want to answer it?”
“Yes.” Terrence nodded. “If you want to answer it, just do it. If you don’t want to do it, just hang
Alexa would not miss the chance to disgust Brynlee.
Alexa smiled innocently and answered the phone.
“Terrence, are you still angry?” Brynlee said impatiently. “Can you come and see me? I apologize to
“It is me.”
Recognizing Alexa’s voice, Brynlee was instantly enraged.
“How could it be you?” Brynlee asked with a ferocious expression. “You took Terrence’s call behind his back?”
“He asked me to answer it,” Alexa said in a flat tone. “You’re calling to apologize, aren’t you?”
“Return the phone to ‘Terrence first. I have something to tell him.”
“If you want to apologize, do it to me.”
“Apologize? Why should I apologize to you?” Brynlee said arrogantly. “I was kind enough to hold a birthday party for you, but you don’t appreciate it?”
Alexa did not reply and put the phone on the table, putting Brynlee on speaker
“Hello? Alexa, are you listening to me?”
“Just apologize. We don’t have anything else to talk about.”
Alexa finished and raised her glass at Terrence with a smile.
Terrence did not care what Brynlee was saying. He gracefully raised his glass and gently clinked it with Alexa.
“As I said, you are not qualified!” Brynlee growled fiercely. “Where is Terrence?”
“It seems she does not intend to apologize.”
Alexa spoke slowly, holding her chin as she looked innocently at Terrence.
“What should we do?”
“What are you talking about?” Brynlee realized that something was wrong, but it was too late.
Terrence put down his fork and took the phone.
Alexa gently smiled. The pleasure of revenge was simply wonderful.
She cut a piece of cake and gently walked to Terrence, scooping a spoonful into his mouth.
Terrence didn’t like sweet food, but he didn’t refuse when Alexa wanted to feed him.
“Is it delicious?”
Alexa asked with a smile, then scooped another spoonful, and handed it over.
On the other side of the line, Brynlee realized something was wrong. Terrence helplessly explained.
Alexa chuckled and deliberately asked.
“Do you want more? I’ll feed you again.”
Terrence frowned slightly and hield her wrist with proper force.
Alexa deliberately groaned softly for Brynlee to hear.
Terrence’s gaze became subtle, and he curtly replied before hanging up the phone.
Meeting his gaze, Alexa instantly felt that something was not right.
She quickly withdrew her hand, but Terrence did not have any intention of letting go.
“The cake is finished… Let go,” she said with a guilty conscience.
“If you’re done, eat a little more.”
Terrence gave a clever pull, and Alexa immediately lost her balance and fell toward him.
He reached out at the right time to hold her waist, and when Alexa came to her senses, she was already sitting sideways on his lap.
They were in an intimate position.
Alexa’s heart seemed to be about to jump out.
“L. Just now…”
“What happened just now?”
Terrence raised her hand, and Alexa suddenly realized…
The cream on her hand was on his clothes.
Alexa turned pale in an instant and raised her hand in a panic to wipe his clothes.
When her hand was about to touch Terrence’s chest, she was immediately pulled back by him.
Terrence’s face slightly darkened, and his voice was a little strange.
What was even stranger was that Terrence did not make things difficult for her anymore and
immediately released her.
Before Alexa could figure things out, Terrence got up and returned to his room without looking back
What was wrong with him?
Was it because Alexa dirtied his clothes?
Alexa touched the tip of her nose and immediately walked to the door of his room
“Take off your clothes and give them to me.” Alexa saldbluntly “I will help you wash them clean.”
As soon as she finished speaking, the door was opened.
Looking at Terrence in front of her, Alexa instantly froze in place.
Terrence took off his shirt and had it in his hand. His upper body was bare, exposed to her without
