Love the Second Time Around Chapter 26

Chapter 26 The Day Is Over

My eyes widened in surprise, and I retracted my hand, but Dominic grabbed my wrist and pulled me onto him. He hugged me so tightly around my waist that my body was pressed close to his.

“D-Dominic, I-I was not… This is not what it looks like. I was just trying to get rid of mosquitoes for you,” I stammered.

Hearing that, Dominic’s lips curled into a smirk.

“Oh really? Are you giving them a massage?” he retorted.

I flushed and stuttered an excuse, “I-I didn’t want to wake you. Now that I owe you again, what would you have done to me if I had woken you up from your sleep?”

Suddenly, Dominic ran his hand up along my spine from my waist, my skin tingling from his touch.

“It seems you’re very clear on where you stand. Besides owing me for the pancakes, your debts to me seem to have grown even more. Besides, I’d helped you successfully negotiate a contract tonight, so shouldn’t you thank me for that?”

“H-how?” I asked.

“Well, a man and a woman both in bed in this position… What do you think?”

Oh my God! Isn’t the lower half of his body no longer functioning? How could he ask such a shameless thing?

I moved my face as far away from him as I could and tried to wriggle out of his arms but for naught. Instead of letting me go, he wrapped his hand around my jaw firmly and squeezed it so hard that I thought he would crush my bones with his bare hand.

“That hurts…” I complained and cursed him silently.

However, being the stubborn mule that he was, Dominic ignored me and said, “You used to love being on top of me. Are you not attracted to the way I look now? Come on, pleasure me.”

Is he f*cking crazy? I gritted my teeth and wrenched his hand off my chin.

“Why should I pleasure you? You’re not my husband!”

As soon as he heard that, his face twisted in anger. “It seems you really miss being with that psycho. Liliana, you disgust me.”

Did he seriously just say that? Right then, I could not hold back any longer. After all, his hot-and-cold attitude was irritating me, and I wasn’t going to back down without putting up a fight.

“I disgust you? For the record, you’re the one who asked me to be your caregiver! If I had a choice, I wouldn’t spend even a minute with you!” I yelled.

Silence ensued as soon as I finished yelling, and it was suffocating. It was so quiet that, in fact, I could hear the man breathing in front of me.

“Get out if you don’t want to be here! Don’t stay in my house any longer!” Just as I was regretting my outburst, Dominic shouted coldly in reply.

Any guilt that I was feeling vanished instantly.

I jumped off his bed and proceeded to the door. But before I could walk out, Dominic caught my wrist again.

“I bought that dress for you, so return it to me.”

Upon that, I rolled my eyes in exasperation. How immature! It’s just one dress! Whatever! I don’t like this dress anyway. If he wants me to return it, then I’ll take it off!

Just as I wanted to rip it off my body, the rational part of me suddenly wondered what I would wear if I took off the dress. I then turned to Dominic and stared at him coldly, “Where are my clothes?”


With a smirk on his face, Dominic then spread his arms casually wide and answered, “Well, they were dirty, so I threw them away.”

What the hell? He threw away my clothes and won’t let me keep the ones he bought me. Does he want me to leave this house naked?

“What should I wear then, my dear Mr. Hartnell?” I asked angrily.

“How should I know? You can leave naked if you want. I couldn’t care less.” He tucked his hands comfortably under his head and looked at me eagerly.

I had never felt such fury in my entire life.

Ah, forget it! Beggars can’t be choosers. I shouldn’t let him get to me.

“Where should I sleep?” I forced the words through my lips as my head hung in defeat.

“Aww, so you’re not leaving? Well then, I’ll take you in like the little lost puppy that you are. Tsk-tsk, I really am too kind. Anyway, you can sleep in any of the rooms. Pick whichever you like best.”

Without even looking up, I knew from his c***y tone that he was holding back a smile. If he wasn’t in a wheelchair, I would have long murdered him!

“Okay, then, good night.”

I decided to sleep on the second floor to be as far away from him as possible. Any closer and I might have nightmares about him.

After that, Dominic stopped bothering me and did not say anything else. I closed his bedroom door behind me and went up to the second floor.

There were a lot of rooms on that floor, so I simply chose one and opened the door. As soon as I walked in, I was stunned. This is the bedroom of my dreams!

From the color of the walls to the adorable princess-style bed, this room was exactly what I had fantasized for the longest time. Although I was no longer a child, I still harbored the fantasy in my heart.

I happily rushed towards the huge pink bed. It was so soft and comfortable, and the sheets smelled fresh. I could not wait to roll around the bed all night.

Feeling tired, I finally slipped into a dream, hugging a large pillow close to me.

Both my body and heart had been hurt badly, and I was exhausted both physically and emotionally. Thus, I fell into a deep sleep as soon as I had closed my eye. It would have been a restful sleep if it wasn’t for the demon haunting me in my dreams.

It was as if the demon was sitting on my chest, trying to suffocate me. I tried to peel my eyes open and escape the dream, but I was too tired, and I could not wake myself up. Nonetheless, the demon in my dream kept crushing my lungs.

However, for some reason, it looked a lot like Dominic.

He annoys me in the daytime and irritates me in my dreams! Ugh! That’s how much I despise him!

Luckily for me, nothing else unusual happened that night other than that.

The next morning, I was awakened by a shrill ring. I reached out sleepily for the source of the sound. It was coming from the phone sitting on the bedside table.

I rubbed the sleep out of my eyes and picked up the phone.

“I’ve never met a caregiver who needed to be awakened by her employer! I’m hungry. Make me breakfast!”

The line then cut abruptly. A shiver ran down my spine as I remembered where I was. Argh… Sh*t! This is Dominic’s house, and my life as his caregiver begins now.

I looked longingly at my big, comfortable bed and bade it goodbye bitterly. Then, yawning all the way, I went into the bathroom to wash up.

Dominic was seated on the couch tapping away on his laptop when I finally came downstairs.

Without a word, I headed straight into the kitchen and pulled open the refrigerator to see what I could throw together to make for breakfast.

What the hell? There’s nothing in this fridge but beer! Am I supposed to conjure breakfast out of thin air?
