“I won’t touch Nicolette,” Samuel said with a cold voice.

Only Kathleen could enchant him.

However, Kathleen refused to believe him.

She closed her eyes. “Let me get out of bed. I still have lots of things to do today.”

“What’s there to do today?” Samuel asked.

“I have to visit Benjamin at the hospital in the morning, then I’m going to visit Madeline in the afternoon,” Kathleen explained.

“What about me?” Samuel buried his face in the crook of her neck. “You didn’t include me in your plans at all.”

Her time belongs to everyone else. This is infuriating!

“You’re very busy.” Kathleen hesitated. “I’ll listen to your plan then.”

“I want to have you for the entire day,” Samuel said bossily.

Kathleen took in a deep breath. “Samuel, you can’t do this. I need my own time to do my own things.”

“Then, let’s have lunch together,” Samuel relented.

He rarely compromised.

Even Kathleen was taken aback.

“Okay,” Kathleen agreed reluctantly.

Samuel curled his lips. “Go ahead and use the bathroom. You’re slow.”

Kathleen fell speechless.

After Kathleen went in the bathroom to take her shower, Samuel went to the one in the guest room for his hot shower.

Kathleen came out of the bathroom, wrapped in her towel.

There were visible red marks on her neck and her collarbone.

Traces from the day before remained on her body.

She had fair and soft skin to begin with.

With these marks on her, she looked even more alluring.

However, she had cried so miserably the day before.

Samuel did not want to torture her any further.

He decided to wait for two more days to allow her to recuperate.

Samuel got suited and headed out for work.

Kathleen did not have to do so. Dressed in her comfortable loungewear, she got ready to begin her sketches.

Samuel walked over to the front of the desk and put his arms on either side of her.

Kathleen looked up. “What is it?”

Samuel gave her a peck on her red lips. “Shall I pick you up at noon, or will you be coming to me?”

Kathleen paused. “You really want to have lunch with me?”

Samuel’s brows furrowed. “Do you think I was joking?”

Kathleen pursed her lips. “Somewhat.”

“I never joke around.” Samuel caressed her face. “I’ll pick you up.”

“Okay.” Kathleen puffed her cheeks. “You’re also dropping by to see Nicolette, right?”

Nicolette and Benjamin were staying at the same hospital.

Samuel’s face darkened.

Kathleen thought he was going to lose his temper.

However, Samuel said in a cold voice, “Not dropping by. I am only coming to pick you up.”

He left after he said that.

Kathleen fell speechless.

She felt uneasy all of a sudden.

Kathleen left home at ten o’clock in the morning.

She went to visit Benjamin once she arrived at the hospital.

Benjamin had already regained consciousness.

However, it would take some time for him to recover.

Nevertheless, the doctor said that Benjamin had already passed the critical period.

All he needed to do was rest and recuperate.

Kathleen sat by his bedside. “Benjamin, thank you.”

Benjamin’s face was rather pale. “You don’t have to thank me.”

He pursed his lips and added, “What matters is that you’re all right.”

“I’m all right.” Kathleen hesitated. “I’ll give you a prescription once I get back. You should give it a try and see if it works.”

“I heard from Gemma that it was your silver needle that saved me?” Benjamin stared at her with a meaningful look.

Kathleen nodded. “Yes.”

“I remember that your granddad was a traditional medicine practitioner.” Benjamin pursed his lips. “You’ve inherited his legacy.”

“I just know some small tricks here and there,” Kathleen answered.

“Small tricks? Yet you’re bold enough to wrestle with the Grim Reaper?” Benjamin teased her.

Kathleen felt awkward.

Benjamin smiled faintly. “Am I embarrassing you?”

Kathleen flushed.

The two of them fell silent.

After a long while, Benjamin said in a low voice, “Sorry, I know that Gemma told you some weird stuff. I hope you don’t take it to heart.”

Kathleen replied calmly, “Benjamin, thank you for liking me, but…”

“Kathleen, you don’t have to say anything. I understand.” Benjamin said with an honest gaze. “I know that you only see me like a brother. I don’t mean to force you to reciprocate my feelings. I never even assumed that you should accept me because I shielded you from the accident.”

Kathleen pursed her lips.

“Let’s just pretend those words were never spoken. I am still your friend, okay?” Benjamin was a real gentleman.

He was very understanding toward Kathleen.

Kathleen glanced at him. She felt her uneasiness subside considerably. “Okay.”

Benjamin smiled. “You don’t have to stay here with me. I’m feeling a little tired. I want to sleep some more.”

“All right.” Kathleen stood up. “I won’t disturb you.”

Benjamin nodded.

Kathleen turned around to leave.

Benjamin said in a low voice, “Kathleen, you have to be careful. That person was clearly coming after you that day.”

“I know.” Kathleen nodded.

“Don’t take any chances with your own life. Despite everything, Samuel is still your husband. He has the responsibility and obligation to protect you. If anything happens, you have to go to him.” Benjamin was worried about her, so he added, “Never take any risks on your own.”

“Got it,” Kathleen said to reassure him.

Benjamin stared at her incredulously. It was only after she had left that he retracted his gaze.

Gemma came in to help Benjamin change his dressing.

“Benjamin, did you tell Kathleen?” Gemma inquired.

“Tell her what?” Benjamin said flatly, his brows furrowed.

“Tell her that you love her,” Gemma replied matter-of-factly. “That was a rare opportunity to confess to her.”

“Drop it.” The furrow between his brows deepened. “I can’t cause her harm.”

Gemma hesitated. “Her husband came to the hospital to visit another woman every day. It’s only a matter of time before they file a divorce.”

Benjamin furrowed his brows again. “Every day?”

“Not as much lately” Gemma explained. “However, the woman told her caregiver that she is about to marry Samuel. Yet, Samuel had just announced his relationship with Kathleen a few days ago.”

Benjamin furrowed his brows. “Never thought this would happen.”

“There’s more.” Gemma looked at Benjamin worryingly. “That woman suffers from leukemia, and is in need of a bone marrow match. Lo and behold, Kathleen is her match. I reckon that man announced his relationship with Kathleen so suddenly just to fool her. He’ll wait until Kathleen has fallen for his tricks, then ask Kathleen to donate her bone marrow to that woman, and then kick her out of the picture.”

Benjamin said coldly, “Did you tell Kathleen this?”

“She knew,” answered Gemma.

She knew?

Benjamin gave Gemma a meaningful look. “If Kathleen came to you for help, you have to tell me about it. I will help her figure something out.”

“All right.” Gemma nodded. “Benjamin, don’t worry about it. We’re of one mind. All I wish is for Kathleen to be my sister-in-law.”

Benjamin looked askance at her. “Shut up!”

Gemma did just that.

Kathleen saw that Samuel had come to pick her up once she got out of the hospital.

Pursing her lips, she walked over to him. “You really came!”

“Why would I lie to you?”

Samuel opened the car door. “Get in.”

Kathleen got into the car.

Samuel got in after her and drove away.

Not far away, Nicolette could be seen running. She wanted to get a hold of Samuel, but she was too late.

She stood rooted to the ground, her fists clenched.

Samuel had come to the hospital.

Yet, he did not visit her.

He left after he picked up Kathleen.

How far along are they in their relationship?

Lately, she felt that she had been losing her grip on Samuel.

If this goes on, I’ll really be left with nothing!
