After nightfall, Karen Daly went to bed early again. She had been sleeping the whole afternoon. She would still be sleeping if not for Mia who woke her up for dinner. She still felt lethargic after dinner, so she went back to her room to sleep. She didn’t know how long she had been sleeping before she was awakened by the sound of the opening door. She could hear Kevin Kyle tiptoeing into the room silently. She was really deep in slumber but also wanted to talk to him. But she couldn’t muster the strength to sit up and do that. She felt that he was just beside him, staring at her with longing gaze. He stared at her for a long time before turning around to go to the bathroom. After that, Karen Daly was still half-asleep until she heard him walking out of the bathroom. She raised her head and asked, “You’re busy working until late night again?” “Yes.” He lied down by her side. He reached out to pull her into his arms and lowered his head to kiss her. “I’m so sleepy.” Karen Daly did not avoid that but did not reciprocate too. “Are you ill?” When he called her in the afternoon, she was already sleeping a lot “Maybe it’s because of the weather. This kind of weather is the most annoying,” Karen Daly muttered. “Then go to sleep.” He kissed her forehead again and did not bother her anymore. He would never force her to do anything she didn’t want to do. Karen Daly shifted herself in his arms and fell asleep again immediately after her eyelids were shut. It felt safe to be with him, even when sleeping. Looking at her calm face, Kevin Kyle found it hard to fall asleep. Whenever he worked late night, there was someone waiting for him when he got home. It was really a good feeling. The next day. Karen Daly was finally awake after sleeping for a long time. When she opened her eyes, she saw Kevin Kyle reading newspaper by the window. “You’re awake. His voice was clear. “Yes.” She nodded. “Go back to sleep if you’re still sleepy. I’ll send the elders and Mia to the airport.” “How could I do that?” Karen Daly immediately got up and went to the bathroom to wash up. When the elders of the Kyle family left this time, it was going to be a while before they could meet again. How could she not send them off? When they went downstairs, the elders were already waiting for them to have breakfast together. After breakfast, Grandpa Kyle had a few words with Kevin Kyle and Karen Daly. He was hoping they could have a child soon so that he could have the fortune of holding his great grandson in his hands. After Grandpa Kyle left, Kevin Kyle’s mother told them that they do not need to rush into giving birth. They should just let nature take its course. When the family arrived at the airport, Mia hugged Karen Daly and said, “Karen, I am just dropping by the school to register for the semester. It won’t be long until I return to Chatterton Town for filming. Try not to miss me too much.” “Okay, then we’ll wait for you to come back.” Karen Daly smiled and said. “Brother, be nice to my sister-in-law. If you dare to bully her, be prepared to face my wrath.” Mia said this while swinging her fists in frot of Kevin Kyle. “Don’t let grandpa and your parents worry about you once you are back. You have to study hard, don’t spend too much time filming,” Kevin Kyle said with a serious face. “It’s none of your business.” Mia discontentment. pouted with “Alright, stop arguing.” Kevin Kyle’s mother said with a smile, “Matthew, no matter how busy you are at work, you should remember that you are now somebody’s husband. Don’t always leave Karen alone.” “Okay.” Kevin Kyle nodded. Grandpa Kyle said, “When you are done with your work, bring Karen back to us from time to time. As for the wedding, you don’t have to worry about it. We will take care of it for you.” “Grandpa, about this…” “It’s settled, then.” Grandpa Kyle waved his hand to stop Kevin Kyle and said, “We should check in now. You should also go back.” Kevin Kyle could not respond. He wanted to prepare the wedding by himself. Karen Daly saw through his worries so she secretly held his hand and smiled at him. It was in fact a good sign that the elders were willing to help them with the wedding, it was a sign that they had completely accepted her as one of their family members After watching them pass through the security check at the customs, Kevin Kyle took Karen Daly’s hand and left. Kevin Kyle asked, “Where do you want to go now?” Karen Daly said, “Take me to the studio.” “Okay.” Kevin Kyle nodded and asked the driver to send her to the studio first. “What are you going to do today?” Karen Daly asked again. “Rovio’s headquarter in the country is moving to Chatterton Town. It’s going to get busier,” Kevin Kyle said. “Remember to have your meals no matter how busy you are,” Karen Daly said. “You too.” He rubbed her head. “Yes, I will.” Karen Daly nodded with a smile. She sunk into his arms and felt sleepy again. Before long, she fell asleep again as the car moved along. Kevin Kyle thought, “it was her who took care of my family these days.” She must be very tired, that was all he thought. He couldn’t imagine other possibilities because he was quite inexperienced in this aspect. More than an hour later, Karen Daly arrived at the studio. One of the two designers at the studio had been on a pregnancy leave for some time. Faye Reed on the other hand had been busy handling some urgent jobs. She had been wishing that Karen Daly was there to help her. Seeing her, Faye Reed was extremely happy. “Thank Heavens, I’ve been waiting all day and all night, finally you appear.” Karen Daly yawned and said lazily, “My lady boss, you sound like you are going to fire me.” “But you’re more like the boss, really. How could I fire you?” Faye Reed said as she showed Karen Daly the new job details. “The client’s requests are all on it. Please take a closer look.” “Okay. I’ll give it a look later. You can go back to your work.” Karen Daly yawned again as she finished her sentence. “Hey Karen, just how good is your man in bed?” “What do you mean?” “Look at yourself, he must have done you good. You look tired even though you just came in.” “We didn’t do anything.” Karen Daly recalled about yesterday night when she rejected Kevin Kyle’s request to be intimate. “Faye, would it be disappointing for a man to be rejected by his partner when he wants it?” “Why did you reject?” “Answer my question, please.” Faye Reed thought for a moment and said, “I’m not a man, wouldn’t know how will they feel. But according to what read, it will be pretty disappointing for the man when it comes to being rejected for that.” As she was speaking, Faye Reed was inches in front of Karen Daly. “Karen, why did you reject him?” “Miss Reed, don’t be so nosy, or else someday Sebastian Spencer will get rid of you.” “He does not have the guts to do that. Besides, he will be transferred to Chatterton Town next month. By then, we can be together every day.” “Congratulations.” “You too, but you really do look so sleepy. If it’s not because of your partner, is it possible that you are pregnant?” “Pregnant?” Karen Day contemplated about this possibility, She had never been so sleepy before. The past few days were really unusual, and… Faye Reed’s words made Karen Daly suddenly remembered that it had been a while since her last period. It usually came regularly. However, she’d better not jump to conclusions. If her issue was due to health-related concerns, then she would be so disappointed.
