The CEO’S Unplanned Heir ( Aurelia Hawthorne ) Chapter 142

Chapter 142 

Leopold’s lips curved into a sardonic smile as he replied, “Indeed, self–awareness is your only redeeming quality.”

Money–hungry misers like her had no sense of romance and were unworthy of being his woman.

Aurelia responded with a pleasing smile, but inside, she felt a prick of pain.

“Mr. Leopold, are you seeing anyone lately? Is it Evelyn?”

Leopold choked a little, glaring at her, “Why do you care?”

“Nothing.” She shook her head, “Just curious, that’s all.”

“Curiosity killed the cat, remember that.” He coldly stated, snatching the remaining orange from her hand, peeling a piece and popping it into his mouth.

Aurelia realized that this man’s words and actions were contradictory.

He claimed he wasn’t interested, yet he grabbed her orange.

She peeled another, eating it, when Leopold’s hand covered her growing belly. His icy demeanor softened slightly.

“It seems to have grown a bit.”

“Yes.” She nodded, “As the babies grow, so does the belly. Luckily, I’m not the type to show easily, so with a coat on, it’s hardly noticeable.”

Leopold’s gaze subtly moved upwards, resting on her chest. Her breast seemed to be growing more noticeable, as if deliberately tempting him.

His body tensed slightly, a subtle heat building up. His Adam’s apple bobbed as he unconsciously stuffed several pieces of orange into his mouth.

But the more he ate, the hotter he became.

Aurelia was unaware of his discomfort, jokingly saying, “Mr. Leopold, once you start dating, you won’t have time to come around here, right?”

Her face held a hint of a smile, which to Leopold was unbearably irritating. He was already hot under the collar, and now he was even more so, his temper flaring, “It seems like you really don’t want me to come.”

“No, no.” She waved her hands, “I just don’t want you to tire yourself out. You should spend more time with your new girlfriend. Don’t worry about the baby, I’ll take care of them…”

Before she could finish, her lips were abruptly sealed by his.

“Mmm…”

She made a surprised sound, her body freezing as if turned to stone.

What had she said wrong?

In truth, Leopold simply wanted to kiss her, no matter what she said.

His lips and tongue claimed her with dominance, his hand unabashedly covering her chest, manipulating her at will.

Her mind went blank, as if the pause button had been pressed, unable to react.

Perhaps his presence was too overpowering, rendering all her cells helpless to his invasion. She had no

choice but to surrender, to let him have his way with her.

Leopold didn’t want to let her go. He wanted to merge with her, to possess her entirely

Suddenly, his phone rang.

The shrill sound shattered the intimate atmosphere.

He hung up without hesitation and tossed the phone aside, only for it to ring again, incessantly.

“Damn it!” He cursed in irritation, glancing at his phone. It was Callie Alcott.

Taking a deep breath, he released the woman beneath him to answer the call on the balcony.

“Leopold, Evelyn is worried about scarring her leg. She’s locked herself in her room all day and hasn’t eaten. Can you come over and see her? She always listens to you.”

“I’ll be there soon.”

Aurelia leaned back on the couch, faintly hearing his words. She knew it was the Alcott family who had

called. She had seen the caller ID.

When Leopold returned, he picked up his jacket, his gaze lingering on her swollen, reddened lips for a few seconds, “I have something to attend to. I’m leaving now.”

“Oh.” She responded quietly. For some reason, a sour feeling welled up inside her. Probably because of the oranges, she thought.

The moment the door closed, the air seemed to stagnate. The living room fell eerily quiet.

Her mood also dipped.

They say a woman’s emotions can become sensitive and unstable during pregnancy due to hormonal changes.

It seems to be true.
