“A formidable figure in Madison City!”
“Pay attention to the people around you!”
“They might be wolves in sheep’s clothing!”
After Silvia read the message from Alina, those words were deeply embedded in her mind.
As for the most formidable figure in Madison City, the legendary “Mr. Kyle” was the first person in Silvia’s mind. Moreover, Jayden was his son, and Jayden was someone who was by Silvia’s side… Alina seemed to imply that Jayden was Felix’s killer.
Jayden had never had anything to do with Alina, so why would she want to do that? Silvia could not figure it out. Did Alina put in so much effort just to sow discord between her and Jayden?
Alina was an extremely jealous person. In the past, she would always find fault with Silvia just because Silvia was the campus belle. So, Silvia could not rule out the possibility that Alina was only trying to cast a bone between her and Jayden
After realizing all these possible reasons, Silvia chuckled and said, “Alina, it seems that you are really good at playing tricks, but I, Silvia Turner, am not someone who you can easily fool!
When Felix went missing, none of them had ever met nor had anything to do with Jayden, so Jayden absolutely did not have any motive to do that. Hence, Silvia was certain that the clues that she had gathered as of now were all fake. Someone was trying to lead her into the wrong direction, and it was possible that the culprit was hiding somewhere close to them, waiting for them to fall into his trap
Silvia scrolled through her phone and deleted Alina’s message without any hesitation. Then, she blocked Alina’s contact. She did not want to hear Alina’s voice nor receive any more messages from her. Silvia would not give anyone a chance to damage her relationship with Jayden!
After deleting the messages, Silvia felt at a loss. She had hit a dead end. Where should she start looking then?
Silvia was startled by the sudden sound. When she saw that it was Jayden calling her on the phone, she gradually calmed down.
She answered the call, “Hello?”
Jayden said in an unfriendly tone, “Silvia Turner, do you know what time is it Silvia looked at the time shown on the phone screen and answered. “It’s 9
Jayden said. “It’s already nine, so why aren’t you home yet?”
“I’m not going home tonight,” Silvia immediately hung up the phone.
Why must he sound like he was lecturing a child? She was an adult! She had her own life and thoughts. So what if she was a little late home?
After packing up, Silvia put on her backpack and went downstairs. Just as she arrived on the ground floor, she bumped into someone. Silvia looked up and saw Jayden’s somber face.
She glanced at him and tried to break away from him. However, as soon as she took a step, Jayden had already pulled her back into his arms. He said in a deep voice, “Did I allow you to leave?”
“Do I need to get your permission to go wherever I want?” Silvia was already feeling very depressed, but this man was yelling at her. Because of this, she could no longer hold her anger in.
Just as Silvia was about to lose her temper, Jayden lowered his voice and said in a gentle voice, “Do you know how worried I was when saw that you weren’t home at this hour?
No matter how angry she was, all her anger dissipated when she heard what Jayden had said. Silvia rubbed her face against his chest and said, “Cant you just tell me that you’re worried about me? Why do you have to be so fierce with me?”
“It’s because you don’t take things seriously unless I speak this way!” That was what Jayden said, but he knew that no matter how fierce he was to her, Silvia still wouldn’t take things seriously. She would just do whatever she liked.
“Okay. I’ll keep that in mind.” Thinking of her deceased father and Felix who had died miserably, the fear of losing Jayden overwhelmed Silvia. She anxiously reached out her hands and wrapped her arms tightly around Jayden’s waist. “Jayden, hold me tighter.”
Jayden hugged her tightly and asked, “What’s the matter?”
Silvia felt much more at ease as she leaned against Jayden’s chest, listening to his strong and steady heartbeat. She could even joke around with him. “Does a wife need a reason to hug her husband?”
“Did you do something wrong again?” Silvia had never acted coquettishly with him. Jayden thought that she must have done something wrong that she was behaving this way.
“Jayden, what kind of a person do you think I am?” She was just scared. She was afraid that she would lose Jayden like how she had lost her father and Felix. She wanted him to hug her, so that she could feel that he was really by her side. However, this man actually thought that she had caused trouble again.
Jayden smiled and said, “You’re someone who would cause trouble for me every now and then.”
“I will not do that again, Jayden” From now on, she would try her best to be a good wife. She would not let him worry about her anymore and she would no longer do things that would upset him.
“Silvia, you can just do whatever you want. You don’t have to restrain yourself. No matter how huge the trouble is, your husband will have the ability to clean up the mess for you” Jayden said confidently.
Silvia asked, “If actually make a hole in the sky, can you help me fix it?”
Jayden replied, “If you can make a hole in the sky, then I will have the ability to fix it.
Although Silvia could never make a hole in the sky, Jayden’s words warmed her heart. It seemed that as long as he was by her side, she would be able to forget all her fears.
“Jayden, could you please promise me one thing?”
“Aren’t you going to ask me what it is?”
“I’ll agree to whatever you want me to do.”
“Promise me that no matter what happens in the future, you will not leave this world before me. You promised me that you will take care of me for the rest of my life, I hope that you will keep your word.” In fact, Silvia did not actually mean that she wanted Jayden to take care of her for the rest of her life. She was just afraid that he would suddenly disappear as her father and Felix did.
I promise you. Then, Jayden lowered his head and kissed Silvia’s lips. After tasting her lips, he gently released her. “As long as you want me to, I will surely.
take care of you for the rest of your life. If he could, he really wanted to take care of her for the subsequent lives.
“Jayden, will you lie to me?”
“I. Jayden did not know which incident was she referring to, so he paused.
“Jayden, you promised me to take care of me for the rest of my life, so you mustn’t break your promise! Otherwise, I’ll never forgive you. Jayden’s hesitation frightened Silvia, so she hurriedly gave him a few punches on the chest.
“I’m not lying. I will take care of you for the rest of your life. Jayden covertly breathed a sigh of relief the moment he heard that this was what she was
Jayden did not know what Silvia was afraid of deep down in her heart, nor did Silvia know what Jayden was worried about. At this moment, they only knew that neither of them wanted to lose each other.
