Daniel placed his head on Olivia’s shoulder and rubbed his forearm against her chest.
It felt like a kitten tickling and teasing her.
At first, Olivia did not pay much attention to what he was doing. She thought that it was an accident, but as time passed, he went overboard.
She stopped and suddenly narrowed her eyes.
Daniel was such a smart person. Half of his brain was used to develop his career, while the other half was used to study Olivia inside out.
With just a slight movement from her, he understood what was going on.
Seeing that she had stopped, he immediately frowned.
His sharp eyes instantly became teary.
He looked pitiful, like a big puppy wagging its tail at its owner.
He raised his head and deliberately turned to look at Olivia with teary eyes. “Olivia, it hurts…”
Olivia had always been soft–hearted. When she saw this, her heart instantly softened.
“Does your stomach hurt?” She frowned nervously.
He must have hurt his stomach after eating so much spice.
Daniel shook his head. “No.”
“Hm?” Olivia raised an eyebrow.
Then where did it hurt?
Daniel pointed at his red lips. His voice sounded sexy, as though he had done something naughty in bed. “My mouth hurts.”
Olivia stared at him.
She really wanted to push him off her.
Before she could move, Daniel cried out and hugged Olivia even tighter. “Oh no! The pain has shifted. My legs hurt too. I can’t walk anymore.”
Olivia smacked a hand to her forehead and said in a helpless and doting tone, “Then, what do you suggest we do?”
Daniel could not stand Olivia speaking in such a tone. He looked up and glanced at Olivia.
Then, he felt even worse.
Now, not only were his lips burning with pain, but there was also a ball of fire in his lower abdomen, sending arousal coursing through his veins.
He rubbed his head against Olivia’s neck and whispered, “Olivia, let’s go home. I’m sleepy.”
Olivia looked down at the black watch on her wrist.
It was only 8 o’clock!
She had never seen Daniel sleep so early!
Seeing the doubts on Olivia’s face, Daniel’s tone was indignant. “I ate spice today and my stomach feels uncomfortable. You know, when people feel uncomfortable, they can’t help but want to rest and sleep.” After saying that, he even looked at Olivia resentfully. “To think that you know medicine. You don’t care about me at all. I’m in so much pain, yet you’re still doubting me.
“It’s so saddening!” He turned his head abruptly, looking as though he was angry.
After waiting for a moment, Olivia did not react. She did not come to coax him at all.
Daniel felt a little sad.
However, he still found a way out.
“Olivia.” He took the initiative to find another topic. “Let’s go home. Andrew must miss you.”
Olivia stood rooted to the ground and still did not speak.
Daniel immediately became nervous. His heart tightened and he straightened.
His arms held Olivia tightly. Because of fear, his voice was intermittent. “Olivia, don’t be angry. I won’t make you angry anymore.”
“Don’t go. Don’t leave me behind!” he thought.
He did not say the last two sentences. He suppressed them in his heart, but his lips were trembling violently.
Daniel’s reaction was too drastic. It scared Olivia.
“Daniel!” Olivia raised her hand and patted his handsome face. Her voice was slightly bewildered. “What’s wrong?”
Upon hearing Olivia’s voice, Daniel reacted as though he had woken up from a nightmare.
His dark eyes stared straight at Olivia, as though he wanted to draw her into himself.
He suddenly hugged Olivia in his arms with so much force. There was an urge in him that demanded they become one and together.
“Olivia.” Daniel’s voice was low. “Don’t be angry with me. If I do anything wrong, tell me. You must tell me! Don’t hold it in and leave me without a word, okay?”
Olivia had never seen such a fragile Daniel before. Her heart ached terribly.
She patted his back and said gently, “Why would I leave you? Have you forgotten that we’re about to get engaged?”
“Yes.” Daniel was happy again.
He hugged Olivia’s waist and told her everything that had happened in the day in a low and mellow voice. “That Winona was my classmate in university. At that time, we did spend some time together, but we weren’t really in love. It was just that we were young and frivolous. I was provoked by our friends and courted her.
“Later, Winona went overseas, and our relationship ended. We haven’t contacted each other since.” Speaking of this, Daniel lowered his head and rubbed his forehead against Olivia’s head. His tone was gentle, seemingly able to move a person’s heart. “Olivia, don’t be fooled by them, and don’t care about Winona. In my heart, she can’t even compare to a little finger of yours. She’s just an old classmate whom I haven’t seen for many years.”
“And tonight’s ball.” Daniel did not give Olivia any chance to misunderstand what was going on.
Hmph! Those evil people who wanted to sow discord between him and Olivia had better scram as soon. as possible.
If he found out about it, he would definitely teach them a lesson!
“I had put on the mask to look for you, but someone suddenly came over and pulled me into a dance. I didn’t react in time,” Daniel explained seriously. “At first, I didn’t react, but later, I recognized that it wasn’t you. However, the rhythm was too fast and the music didn’t stop. I didn’t have time to let go of
Daniel was a well–mannered young man. It was not in him to suddenly shake off his female companion. Moreover, there were too many people on the dance floor at that time. If he suddenly let go of his female companion, she might be injured.
Daniel was not a kind man, nor was he a saint. He was clear about right and wrong and was just.”
He couldn’t do something that would hurt an unfamiliar female companion for no reason.
After explaining about Winona, he talked about Sarah.
Daniel tilted his head and rubbed against Olivia’s delicate face. He explained gently, “Sarah is a little rash.
I know she’s not a good person, but her grandmother is really a kind and amiable old lady”
Daniel was a child without a home when he was young,
Everyone in the family only paid attention to his uncle, who was seven years older than him.
Daniel was like an abandoned child. His parents did not dote on him and they did not love him. Daniel chose to hang around outside all day.
Everyone said that he was ignorant and incompetent. They despised him and compared him to his uncle. They said that there was a world of difference between the two of them.
Even his biological parents thought so.
They felt that Daniel was too naughty and useless. The Sullivan family would be handed over to his uncle in the future.
Daniel didn’t like to go home, so he went to the Anderson family’s residence to freeload.
Fiona Anderson doted on him the most. She said that Daniel was the best and smartest child in the world. It was just that those people had poor taste.
She also encouraged Daniel to start his own business.
Fiona kept saying. You can’t dig yourself into a hole because of this. If they don’t love you, you can love yourself. If they don’t give it to you, you can start your own business. Don’t blame others and hate everything.
If that was the case, you would fall into their trap. They hope that you will hate them, that you will grow up crooked, and that you will become extreme and not become someone who is great.
“Therefore, you must not do as they wish!”
Daniel spoke tirelessly. He was very eloquent and knew how to emphasize the main points.
Olivia was completely taken in by what he was talking about.
At this moment, she suddenly understood Daniel.
Therefore, she said, “Don’t worry, I won’t pay attention to Sarah. I’ll tolerate her as much as I can.”
“Of course not!” Daniel immediately rejected it. He looked at Olivia as if she was a fool. “What are you talking about? That’s not what I meant when I said those things to you.”
So what did he mean?
Olivia was a little stunned.
Daniel sighed. “What I mean is that if you have to deal with Sarah in the future, don’t be obvious about it. Do it secretly. Otherwise, she will definitely complain to her grandmother.
“Then, that will make things difficult for me.”
Olivia stared at him.
