Chapter 61 Leave the Light On for Him
There was panic, anger, and worry in Terrence’s heart. All kinds of emotions were mixed. When he saw her still shocked little face, there was the only relief in an instant.
Fortunately, he came.
“You are not allowed to go out alone.
“You need to protect yourself, understand?
“What if I hadn’t come?”
Terrence became angry and suddenly spoke more.
Alexa quietly took the scolding and, for the first time, did not quarrel with him.
“I understand,” she said wearily.
Terrence instantly couldn’t say anything to blame her, but it was not her fault at all. He just cared about her too much.
“I ignored him, but he pestered me,”Alexa, like a wronged child, told him what she was thinking in full detail. “I told him to go away directly, but he still said those disgusting words.”
In the end, Alexa’s tone was harsh.
“If my brother were here, he would be dead!”
Wasn’t it the same with Terrence around?
Terrence narrowed his eyes and pulled her into his embrace, hugging her tightly.
“This will never happen again. I promise.”
Alexa was in his arms, and the cold scent became clearer and clearer.
It was elegant and warm.
“Then let’s go home “Terrence took the opportunity to hold her hand. “Do you want to eat the food made by the cook or me?
“Anything is fine”
In fact, she wanted him to cook for her more, but Alexa did not say it out loud.
She had been troubling him, so Terrence would soon get sick of her if she asked for more.
Alexa did not wish for that to happen.
She finally managed to catch a glimmer of hope and did not want it to be extinguished by him.
However, even though she did not say it, Terrence still put on an apron and went to the kitchen.
Alexa sat on the sofa and looked at him with interest.
Unexpectedly, her peeking was caught red-handed by Terrence.
“Why are you staring at me?”
“I am looking at the fish in your hand,” Alexa said without blushing or panicking.
“Do you like to eat fish that much? I heard people who enjoy fish are all very smart,” Terrence said
“I don’t think so.”
“Otherwise, why didn’t you look at me but the fish?”
Terrence neatly slashed the fish a few times, instantly cutting it into thin slices of even thickness.
“What’s there to see about the fish?”
Alexa’s fair face instantly turned red.
“Why should I look at you?”
She muttered with a lack of confidence and immediately walked away.
Terrence made a few simple dishes she liked, and Alexa ate a lot. It was unusual.
“Eat slowly. No one is fighting over the food with you.”
He sat beside her and watched her eat with a smile.
Alexa was really hungry and did not care what Terrence would think of her.
“Aren’t you going to eat?” she asked.
“You’ve finally asked me, “Terrence said proudly. “So, I’m not invisible to you.”
Alexa blinked and looked extremely innocent
Terrence did not intend to pick up his fork. Instead, he leaned toward her
Terrence urged her, grabbed her wrist, and put the fish that Alexa had just forked into his mouth.
Alexa looked at his actions and was so shocked that she did not dare to speak.
Wasn’t Terrence a neat freak? He never ate the food that others put on his plate.
So, what was he doing?
“Eat slowly,” Terrence said naturally. “I still have some work to do.”
After that, he got up and went to the study.
Alexa froze on the spot, and the delicacies in front of her instantly became tasteless.
What on earth was Terrence doing?
These two days had been too harmonious with him. Alexa could not help but reflect on it.
Was Terrence pitying her?
Would he actually be soft-hearted toward her?
Alexa got a call from Tiana before she finished eating,
Sure enough, Tiana wanted to ask her about what had just happened.
“Yes, I’m fine. Thank you, Ms. Duffy. My family came to pick me up,” Alexa explained seriously.
Terrence was standing not far behind her and heard everything she said.
His cold and handsome face finally had a smile that came from the bottom of his heart.
Alexa did not notice that someone was quietly approaching her from behind. Terrence suddenly rest his head on her shoulder, scaring her to the point that her face turned pale and she cried out in
“It’s nothing, Ms. Dully,”Alexa replied in a trembling voice and glanced at him in shock.
Several red marks were on Terrence’s neck.
She had accidentally scratched himn just now…
Alexa randomly said a few words and hunt up the phone, tremblin.is she looked at Terrence.
“I am sorry.” Alexa carefully explained. “I did not do it on purpose. I just…”
Terrence carefully sized her up with liis dark and deep eyes. He raised his land and stroked the red marks on his neck with a faint smile.
“Your claws are so sharp?”
“Sorry,” Alexa said helplessly.
Terrence took a step closer to her, and his phone rang.
Seeing the caller ID, Terrence couldn’t help but frown, and his face became serious.
Alexa tacitly chose to ignore it and turned to clean up the dishes on the table.
Terrence took his phone and went to the courtyard mysteriously.
It didn’t take long for him to hurry into the house to get his coat. It looked like he was going out.
Alexa inadvertently looked up and exchanged a glance with him.
Terrence actually hesitated for a moment.
“I have something to do at the company. I will go there now.”
Alexa smiled and was unexpectedly meek.
She even trotted forward and tip-toed to tidy up Terrence’s tie.
“Are you coming back tonight?”
“Well, it depends. But I will try my best,” Terrence added.
With that, he rushed into the thick darkness without looking back.
Alexa stood alone at the door until Terrence’s car completely disappeared from her sight.
Why did he lie to her?
How could Terrence panic like this because of the company?
11 he wanted to see Brynlee, he could tell Alexa. Why did he lie to Alexa?
Alexa (elt suffocated and somehow had tears in her eyes.
She suppressed her bitter emotions and silently cleaned up the dishes on the table.
The gentleness that Terrence had given her was still warmi,
Although Alexa knew he would not come back tonight, before she fell asleep, she still left a light on for him.
She had nightmares for the whole night.
The next morning. Alexa was jolted awake covered in sweat and looked beside her.
The quilt was folded neatly, and even thic sheets were flat.
Terrence had not returned.
Alexa looked down and turned off the night lamp that had been lit all night.
Alexa gathered herself up and washed. When she went downstairs, Mina came over.
“Mrs. Ramsey, Mr. Ramsey is on a business trip and will be back in three days.”
