Meanwhile, the air in the presidential suite was warm and filled with sexual tension, although both Amanda and Elias were silent. Amanda had gotten back into bed and wrapped herself tightly with the sheets while Elias sat on the couch. Beads of sweat formed on his forehead, and he eventually took his tie off as he felt too suffocated by it.
“What are you doing? Don’t you dare remove your clothes!” Amanda assumed that he was about to start stripping when she saw his actions and her eyes widened with fear. They were starting to feel the full effects of the drugs, and they were both clinging to their final bit of sanity. Elias had finished his entire glass of red wine, so he was feeling a lot more of the effects. The horrible sensation spread across his entire body, and he eventually got to his feet before walking over to
When he saw Amanda, who was all wrapped up in the large, comfortable bed, he couldn’t help but let out a laugh. “Why don’t we just go along with Grandpa’s wishes?”
What?! Amanda was stunned. “Have you lost your mind?” Elias bent down to press his arms against the bed and edged his flawless face a little closer to Amanda as he spoke in a seductive tone. “You were once my wife, yet we’ve never slept together. Come to think of it, it’s a pity,” he whispered.
Amanda was speechless for a while. I don’t understand. Why won’t he admit to what happened during the celebration four years ago? If we never slept together, then where did the baby come from? We only slept together that one time, and I got pregnant immediately after that, she thought. She couldn’t contain her frustration when she saw the shameless look on Elias’ face. “A pity? What nonsense are you talking about? F*ck off!” she hissed as she sent a kick toward his groin area.
At that moment, he lurched forward and pulled her over to lie on top of him. His six-foot-tall figure seemed especially powerful and domineering at that moment. “Elias!” Amanda let out a scream. Elias seemed to have lost his mind at that point, and he leaned in to give Amanda a kiss. His sharp jaw and the veins on his neck made him look especially sexy then.
Amanda quickly turned away before growling at him. “You can look for Grace if you’re that horny! Aren’t you deeply in love with her? I’m sure she’d love to sleep with you!”
The man’s expression changed immediately. “Shut up!” he shouted directly in Amanda’s face. Then, he sat upright before storming over to the washroom with a hard, cold look on his face. He no longer looked at the woman on the bed after that. Soon enough, Amanda heard the sound of the shower being turned on in the washroom.
After all the wrestling that happened in bed earlier, a layer of sweat had formed on Amanda’s smooth, pale forehead. She was still dazed after Elias shouted at her-she had no idea how she had triggered him.
Meanwhile, Elias turned on the cold shower right after he got into the washroom. He stood still as the icy water splashed all over him. For some reason, his head ached whenever he recalled the whiny look on Grace’s face. He could hear her wailing and begging for him to take responsibility. She’s probably going to cry to me again after tonight. Just the thought of it made him frustrated.
Elias spent about half an hour in the shower before he stepped out of the washroom in a bathrobe. Amanda was alert from the moment she heard sounds coming from the washroom, and she quickly sat upright even though her entire body felt weak and shaky. “I’ll sleep on the couch. Don’t worry, I won’t lay a finger on you, Elias muttered in his deep and raspy voice. Then, he walked toward the couch before lying down. When he pulled his phone out to take a look, he realized that there was no signal on his phone. Well, Grandpa sure is one heartless man. Is he trying to get himself a great-grandchild by tonight?
Amanda, who was still on the bed, stared at the man’s figure for a long while. She only heaved a sigh of relief after the man was motionless for a long while. Then, she mustered her last bit of energy to bring herself to the washroom to take a cold shower. However, she simply couldn’t stand on her own two feet-she felt like her whole body was being eaten up by tiny ants at that moment. Without warning, she fell onto the ground.
Amanda could no longer bring herself to move-she didn’t have the strength to even crawl into the washroom. Upon hearing the noise, Elias walked over to check on her. “Do you need help?” His figure towered above her. “No… Go away…” Amanda didn’t have the energy to shout, so her voice was soft and weak. The very next second, Elias bent down and picked her up before bringing her to the washroom.
“What are you doing?” Amanda was close to panicking. I know my Grandpa well-he probably used really strong drugs in our drinks. Your body can’t handle it. You need to take a cold shower.” Elias helped her into the bathtub before he began to fill up the tub. She felt much better after lying down in the tub. It felt as if she had finally found an oasis after being in the desert for days.
Elias made sure that the tub was filled up with water before he gave her instructions. “You can stay for about half an hour. I’ll help you out after that,” he uttered before turning to leave the washroom. Amanda felt rather puzzled then. Why does Elias look completely fine? Did the drugs wear off for him already?
However, outside the washroom, sweat continued
Stream down Elias’ face. Only the heavens knew how much he had been controlling and restraining himself when he carried Amanda into. the bath earlier. He felt as if his entire body was about to combust into flames. He could feel
himself heating up and was desperate to get himself inside of her.
The next morning, Amanda slowly opened her eyes to find herself lying in bed. She gazed toward the couch to realize that Elias was no longer there. With a look of confusion on her face, she sat upright in bed. She couldn’t recall how she got into bed the night before. Elias was probably the one who helped me to bed. But… Can we open the room door now?
Amanda threw the sheets aside and walked over to try the door handle. As expected, the door was no longer locked. They had survived the long night. All of a sudden, Amanda was reminded of her child! I wasn’t home the whole night. I bet that little baby threw a tantrum!
Meanwhile, Grace was seated on one of the couches in the president’s office of Winters Enterprise. She had arrived earlier that morning with a pale look on her face and dark circles under her eyes. She hadn’t slept at all the night before, but she kept her gaze fixed on the door as she waited for Elias to show up.
All of a sudden, the door was pushed open from the outside, and Grace shifted her gaze up to see Elias walking in. Tears streamed down her cheeks immediately and she threw her arms around Elias the moment he stepped into his office. “You’re finally here, Elias! I stayed up the whole night for you! Why did Grandpa have to do that? I don’t understand. Why does he have to torture me?” Grace wrapped her arms tightly around Elias as she cried her heart out.
“Alright. Stop crying.” Elias stroked the back of Grace’s head. When Grace thought about how Amanda and Elias might have slept together the night before, she pushed him away from her. “Last night, did you and Amanda… have any…”
“Nothing happened between us,” Elias explained. Then, he walked toward his table as if he was no longer interested in discussing this matter.
“How could that be? Don’t lie to me! You guys were drugged, so how could you guys have controlled yourselves? Elias!” Grace shouted like a mad woman. She was acting just like how Elias had expected her to-she showed up to cause a fuss early in the morning. He massaged his brows before speaking in a rather annoyed tone. “I’m telling the truth. Do you think I’d lie about sleeping with a woman?”
