In love, never say never novel read online free chapter 53
It took me by surprise as I thought he was going to kiss me.
Instinctively, I shrank back and stammered, “Ashton, there are people outside…”
Far from what I imagined, he took the seatbelt from the other side and strapped me in. He smirked at me with his eyes gleaming. “What were you thinking?”
I…misunderstood the situation!
I did not expect him to be reaching for my seatbelt.
I forced a smile before turning my head to look outside the window.
Unexpectedly, I felt a warm touch on my fingertips, and the warmth started spreading through my body. Surprised, I look down to see Ashton holding my fingertips with one hand while driving with another.
Sensing my gaze, he brought my hand up to his lips and kissed it. “Apart from pork, grilled fish and noodles, is there anything else you want to eat?”
My heart raced. It was rare to share such warm and peaceful moments with him. As my face started to flush, I could only think about the warmth that lingered on my fingertips after he kissed them.
I retracted my hand and voiced out, “I can eat anything!” Any food would sound good to me at this point.
His deep laughter sounded through the car. Anyone could tell that Ashton was in a good mood today.
When we arrived back at the villa, Ashton opened the door and helped me out of the car before I could even open the door for myself.
“I can walk on my own!” I was not that delicate that I had to be carried in and out of the car.
“Come here!” He demanded. Domineeringly, he picked me up and headed into the villa.
He placed me on the sofa in the living room, then took out the medicine he brought back from the hospital. After taking a closer look at the bottles, he divided them and handed me a few black pills. He ordered, “Eat them!”
Unwilling to eat them, I frowned.
In response to my reaction, he went to the kitchen and emerged with a white…rock candy.
“After you take your medicine, you can eat this, and it would not be bitter anymore.”
Of course…sometimes men can be dumb. These pills weren’t even that bitter, so why would I have to eat it with rock candy?
Taking the black pills in his hands, I plopped them into my mouth. After I gulped the water to swallow them, I returned to the bedroom.
If I stayed with Ashton any longer, I was worried that I would be clingy towards him.
At first, I tossed and turned when I was in bed. Yet, I unknowingly fell asleep.
Perhaps because I slept like a dead log, I did not realize that Ashton joined me in bed.
The next day, I only woke up when it was way past noon.
Opening my eyes, I saw Ashton’s handsome face before me. He was so close that I could see the pores on his face. I had to admit that he had flawless skin.
His facial features were sharp and attractive, exuding confidence. I could not help but reach my hand towards his face and gently caressed his stubble.
He probably slept late last night and had been going back and forth for business trips recently. Therefore, he was still suffering from jet lag and fell into a deep sleep.
I played with it for a while before my stomach rumbled. Since he was not awake, I wriggled in bed and wanted to get up to look for food. Unexpectedly, he lifted his leg and pressed me down.
Maybe he thought of something and moved his leg.
“Ashton!” I complained and tried to shift his leg away.
His eyes fluttered open, and in a daze, he looked at me with sleepy eyes. “You’re awake already?”
I nodded and tried to wriggle out of the blanket. However, his long arms stretched out and encircled me. With a mesmerizing expression on his handsome face, he looked at me with a slight smile. “Don’t move.”
Although I usually seemed indifferent, but…
“I’m hungry!” I whined with a slightly flushed face.
He gave a short acknowledgment with his hoarse voice and pulled me closer to him.
“Ashton, you really are a pervert!” I scorned.
He was doing it again. I almost felt like a masochist for putting up with him time and again. Entering the bathroom, I washed my mouth out many times but I could still smell it on my breath.
Following that, he entered the bathroom too and hugged me from behind with a devilish smirk on his face.
I ignored him and squeezed some toothpaste onto my toothbrush. He seemed excited and raised his eyebrows as he commented, “You’ll be fine after a few more times.”
Annoyed, I raised my head and gave him a death glare. Then, I quickly brushed my teeth and left the bathroom.
Somewhat affected by the pregnancy, when I sat in front of the dressing table, I felt like I had gotten even fatter.
After applying some cream, I put on some light makeup and dragged myself to the closet to look for some decent clothes to change into. Meanwhile, Ashton came out from the bathroom and saw my changed outfit. Frowning, he demanded, “I want you to change into another outfit!”
“Why?” There’s nothing wrong with my clothes! It was summer in J City soon, so it was not ideal dressing in long sleeves.
He walked to my side and scanned the closet. Grabbing a pale pink suit jacket, he passed it to me. “Put it on!”
I wanted to rebut, but he gave me a serious look.
Without a choice, I silently put on the jacket.
Shortly after, when we were heading downstairs, I heard a crackling sound from the kitchen. It shocked me, and for a moment, I thought it was a thief. However, Ashton seemed calm.
Looking downstairs again, I realized that it was Mrs. Eriksen.
At the sight of us, Mrs. Eriksen stopped her preparations, and with a smile on her face, she exclaimed, “Mr. and Mrs. Fuller, you are up! Breakfast is ready, you should eat it while it’s hot. Don’t starve yourselves!”
