If Silvia had betrayed him and fallen in love with Jayden, was she still worthy of his care and protection? Felix thought about it seriously
The question thrown by Dr. Thames was indeed a harsh one. It didn’t take long for Felix to give his reply. “Yes! It’s worth it! It will forever be worth it!” he said firmly.
Dr. Thames was astonished by his answer. “Felix, are you crazy? Or have you lost your mind? Do you know what you’re talking about? She’s a sl*t who has fallen in love with someone else. What makes her so worthy for you to protect her like this?”
“Do you need a reason to protect someone?” Felix asked indifferently.
Dr. Thames screamed hysterically. “Even if you don’t need a reason to protect
her, you should find someone worthy of your protection! A woman like her doesn’t deserve it!” “It’s up to me to determine if she’s worthy or not. You don’t have to decide for me,” Felix said with a calm expression. However, his gaze was sharp when he
looked at Dr. Thames. “That applies to you too, Dr. Thames. Jayden obviously
doesn’t care about you. Why are you still thinking of ways to win him over?”
“Because… Because I like him.”
Felix replied, “No, that’s not the reason. It’s just your possessiveness playing tricks on you. That’s because you’ve never met with such failure in your life before meeting him. The more he shows no interest in you, the more you want to have him. Once you get your hands on him, and there is only you in his eyes, you’ll trample on him to feed your sense of accomplishment.”
Felix hit the nail on the head, making Dr. Thames feel a little embarrassed. Her face darkened as she said, “Felix, we are talking about you now. Don’t drag me into this.”
“My thoughts are simple. As long as you still intend to cooperate with me, then you’ll have to accept my opinion. You must not spread the news you received today. Otherwise, I will not let you off the hook” Felix’s voice was still soft and indifferent, but there was a hint of viciousness in his words.
“Fine, you win! But there won’t be next time.” Dr. Thames knew that it wasn’t a good time to fight Felix head-on. She decided to agree with him first. As for what would happen next, it was her own business. Felix could not control what
she wanted to do.
“I’m going back to my room,” said Felix. Then, he limped slowly up the stairs without getting the consent of the ladies.
He was willing to believe in Silvia as he has not known the entire truth. He would not change his mind to protect Silvia.
That was because he had once promised her that he would protect her for the
rest of his life!
Therefore, he would never allow anyone to hurt Silvia.
Flying from Hatford City to Madison City took roughly two hours and fifteen minutes. It was already two o’clock in the morning when Jayden arrived at Madison City. At that time, the airport was less busy. Therefore, once he came out of the VIP passage, the first thing he saw was his driver waiting for him.
The driver got out of the car and opened the door for him. He reminded Jayden. “Sir, the temperature has dropped today in Madison City. You should dress up on more layers
For the past three years, when Jayden had closed himself off from the world, he would feel annoyed when he heard words of concern. However, his state of mind was different now. Upon hearing that, his heart felt warm. “I will. You
should keep warm too he nodded and said. “Thank you for your concern, Sir!” The driver seemed to be happier than winning the lottery. His mood was instantly lifted.
Jayden had sent a text message to Mrs. Turner beforehand, telling her that he would come back to accompany Silvia at night.
After learning that it would be late at night when he arrived, Mrs. Turner was worried that she would not hear his call during her sleep. Therefore, she had told him that she would hide the house key under the carpet outside the door,
When Jayden arrived at the house, he successfully entered the house using the keys hidden under the carpet.
Mrs. Turner was a considerate person. Knowing that Jayden would come, she left a lamp on in the living room. Her heartwarming gesture made Jayden feel good,
When he was living with the Kyle family, no matter how late he got home, his mother would leave a lamp on Mrs. Turner’s actions reminded him of his
mother, who he had not seen for a long time. They were both warm and caring elders.
It was getting late and he had to return to Hatford City in a few hours to continue the next meeting. Hence, he wanted to spend as much time as he could with Silvia. Unexpectedly, when he was trying to sneak into Silvia’s room, the door of Mrs. Turner’s room suddenly swung open
It was already three o’clock in the morning. Despite feeling sleepy, Mrs. Turner
had tried her best to stay awake. While waiting for Jayden, she had dozed off. However, because of her occupied mind, she jolted awake without falling into deep sleep.
When she heard noises in the house, she came out of the room after putting a coat on. Seeing that it was Jayden, she smiled at him gently, “Jayden, you’ve traveled so far in the middle of the night. Let me make you some food. They had only met twice, but when Mrs. Turner saw Jayden again, she did not
treat him as an outsider. She immediately thought of preparing supper for him. “There’s no need, Mom. I have eaten on the plane,” Jayden lied, not wanting to
trouble Mrs. Turner.
“Are you really not hungry?” Mrs. Turner asked with concern.
“Yeah, I’m not hungry.” He figured skipping a meal was no big deal. “Okay. Get yourself cleaned up and have a rest. I have prepared a set of clothes
and toiletries for you in Silvia’s room. Mrs. Turner had already prepared those the last time Silvia brought Jayden home. At that time, he did not use them. So, she had kept them until now.
“Okay” Jayden nodded. “Mom, you should go to bed too.”
“Okay” Mrs. Turner didn’t say much because she could tell that Jayden was eager to see Silvia. She did not want to be the third wheel.
Jayden tiptoed into Silvia’s room and saw that the quilt was on the floor. He walked over and pulled up the quilt to cover Silvia. “You’re an adult. Why are you still sleeping like a child? You really make me worry.”
Jayden had just covered her with the quilt when she suddenly called out his name. Jayden thought he had awakened her. When he looked at her closely, he realized that she was sleep talking.
Hearing that she was calling his name in her dream, Jayden felt that it was worth his effort rushing back that night to keep her company. A warm current flowed into his chest. He couldn’t help but reach out his hand and caress her head. “Silly girl, why are you calling me?”
