“I… Kevin Kyle moved his thin lips but said nothing. His eyes showed a hint of incomprehensible depth beneath the golden glasses. He stared at Karen Daly’s back and thought for a few seconds, then he turned and walked to the study room. In the past three years, Karen Daly had rented a room for herself and lived alone. She was very good at making some home-cooked dishes.
Soon, two dishes and a soup were served on the table. “Kevin, it’s time to eat.” Karen Daly knocked on the door of the study room carefully and gently pushed the door open when she did not hear a reply. Kevin Kyle was making a phone call in the study. He said, “Take care of these things. You don’t have to report everything to me.” After that, he hung up the phone immediately. The moment he looked up, he met Karen Daly’s eyes and asked coldly, “What’s the matter?”
“Time to eat,” Karen Daly smiled and did not dare to look at him. “I’ll be there in a second.” His tone was indifferent as usual. The two of them sat opposite each other, eating their meal tensely. Neither of them spoke to break the silence. For a moment, the atmosphere seemed to be extremely boring Karen Daly moved her lips several times to find some topics to talk about, but she swallowed back her words after —- she saw Kevin Kyle’s indifferent expression. After dinner, Kevin Kyle offered to wash dishes for her, and Karen Daly did not refuse. Since was willing to share the burden of these chores with her, she was happy to let him do so. It could be seen from Kevin Kyle’s clumsiness that he had never done these things before. But it was true. It was impossible for a boss of such a big company to do such trivial things such as washing dishes. Clank Hearing the crack of a porcelain bowl in the kitchen, Karen Daly stood up immediately and walked over. What she saw was Kevin Kyle holding a bowl in his hand and staring blankly at the broken porcelain pieces on the ground. “Let me do it.”
Karen Daly walked over and wanted to take the bowl from Kevin Kyle’s hand. “No, I’ll do it.” Kevin Kyle stretched out his hand and his tone did not change. “Kevin, actually.” Karen Daly looked at Kevin Kyle’s firm eyes and could not say anything. She nodded and left the kitchen to let him continue. Although they were legally a couple, Kevin Kyle was still a man that Karen Daly was not familiar with. She wanted to know him more, to know everything about him, she was trying her best to be a good wife. However, with a personality like his, could she really get close to him like how she had planned when they had gotten married? —-
Karen Daly sat down in the living room picked up the remote-control, turned on the TV, she randomly put on a news channel. While watching the TV, she occasionally turned his head to look in the direction of the kitchen. Through the glass door, she saw Kevin Kyle carefully cleaning bowls and cutlery She secretly sighed in her heart, how could a man look so good while washing dishes. Perhaps Karen Daly’s gaze were too obvious, Kevin Kyle looked back as well. Their eyes met, and Karen saw the slight coldness in Kevin Kyle’s eyes. But he then let out an impeccably polite smile.
As she was caught looking at him, Karen Daly’s face turned slightly red, and then she returned a polite smile. Karen Daly turned her eyes back to the TV screen, thinking about Kevin. This man was so confident at work, and even looked so good while washing dishes. When would she ever see him make a fool of himself? After tidying up the kitchen, Kevin Kyle returned to the hall and saw that Karen was in a daze. He stared at her delicate face and said after a few seconds, “Karen.”
“Ah..” Karen said as she listened to his soothing voice, she found it very pleasant. For a moment, she felt her face burning hot Kevin Kyle sat down on the sofa beside her. “I have something to discuss with you.” “Okay.” Karen Daly replied. She also wanted to have a good talk with him and take this opportunity to make things clear. —- Kevin Kyle’s deep gaze swept up and down her, and then he slowly said, “Karen, today at the company.” “We’ll have a separate work and personal life. I understand that. In fact, I don’t want to let people gossip behind our backs because of our personal relationship.” Kevin had not finished yet, but Karen interrupted him. She had worked hard in this company for three years to have her achievements today. She wanted to continue climbing up the corporate ladder on her own. She didn’t want anything to change because of Kevin Kyle. His face was calm, but his eyes flashed an imperceptibly beneath his glasses. “I didn’t mean to hide my identity. I did not know how you would feel about me when I saw you during the event, so I did not announce anything to the public, but I didn’t mean to hide it on purpose.” “I know,” Karen Daly nodded and said, “My work life and personal life is always separate, I don’t want to bring my personal life to work.”
It was their own business that she and Kevin Kyle had gotten married. Karen Daly felt that there was no need to announce it to the people in the company. On one hand, she did not want her job to be affected. On the other hand, she was not sure how far she could go with Kevin Kyle. Looking at Karen’s firmness, Kevin Kyle paused and said, “Did you tell your family about our marriage?” Karen Daly shook her head, she about her family. not want to talk “I have just taken over Innovative Tech, and I have some things to deal with in person. If you don’t mind, after all pressing matters have been attended to, I would like to go with you to visit my father-in-law and mother-in-law,”
He said calmly, as if he had expected Karen to have mentioned this matter to her family. “No.” Karen Daly refused immediately, but then felt that it was inappropriate, so she hurriedly explained, “I have had some issues with my family. I haven’t contacted them for a long time. Let’s talk about it later.” Family? Every time she thought of this word, Karen Daly felt a dull pain in her heart, it made her a little breathless. Three years ago, that home was no longer her home, and she could never go back.
“Karen.” Kevin Kyle called her name in a deep voice and said, “You are no longer alone. You have me.” Kevin Kyle’s tone was dull, but because of his pleasant voice, it carried a different feeling. This sentence was obviously not romantic, but it made Karen Daly’s heart full of inexplicable feelings. Although she gritted her teeth and had gradually overcome the pain over the years, some late nights, she would still feel sad and silently shed tears while thinking of it. “Karen.” After a long silence, Kevin Kyle spoke again, “We are already husband and wife. I sincerely want to spend the rest of my life with you.”
Kevin Kyle suddenly said this, and Karen was stunned again. Looking up at him and into his sincere eyes, she also said, “I am determined to live with you for the rest of my life.” Kevin Kyle stared at her beautiful face, paused for a few seconds and said, “Karen, can you promise not to break up —- with me no matter what happens?”
“Yes!” Karen Daly nodded heavily. “I will try my best to be a good wife.” She had also thought that they should not break up so easily. And now, Kevin had said so, and this made her feel at ease. After chatting with Kevin Kyle, she felt much more at ease. Kevin Kyle went back to the study. Karen then cleaned up the room and went to the bathroom to take a bath. After her bath, she sat in front of the dressing table and blew her hair dry. Just when her hair had dried, Kevin Kyle came in. He also took a shower and put on a white bathrobe, revealing a small piece of supple smooth skin on his chest His hair was still dripping with water, which followed the lines of his body and disappearing into the white bathrobe. Karen Daly’s face suddenly blushed.
“You must be tired. Go to sleep early.” Kevin Kyle suddenly said. His voice was low and magnetic, which made Karen’s heart beat inexplicably. Kevin Kyle did not intend to leave. Did he mean to sleep in the same room tonight?.
