Chapter 47 He Is Fine

I jumped out of bed abruptly. My tone of voice was a little provocative as I had gotten shocked for no reason. “Mr. Hartnell, why are you not sleeping yet at this late hour? Why are you doing here? You scared the hell out of me,” I uttered.

However, little did I know that Dominic was way more aggressive than I was. “You do know that it’s late at night. Why did you laugh so loudly? Are you crazy?”

Well… Nicholas told me a joke just now. That’s why I couldn’t help but laugh.

Knowing that I was in the wrong, I cleared my throat and said, “I’ll be more mindful next time.”

“Is there even going to be a next time? Who are you talking to at this hour? You look so happy.” Dominic’s eyes darkened as he looked at me.

Subconsciously, I hid my phone behind me and answered, “Nobody. I was just laughing at some reality shows.”

The man evidently didn’t believe me as he proceeded to ask me for my phone.

I refused his request without hesitation. “It’s my phone. Why should I give it to you? I have the rights to my own privacy.”

His voice grew colder as he barked out, “Hand it over to me!”

“I’m not giving it to you. Come and get it yourself if you want it so badly!” I purposely stood up from the bed and raised my hand in the air while saying that.

I stuck out my tongue provocatively. Serves him right for threatening me all the time. I’m just going to make fun of him a little. Hmph! He can’t even walk. Let’s see what’s he going to do!

“I’ll give you one last chance. Give it to me,” he said every single word through gritted teeth.

“Dominic, let’s be reasonable. This is my phone. Why do I have to give it to you? Who I chat with is none of your business.”

Is he out of his mind? Usually, he only goes crazy once in a while. I have never seen him act like this before.

Anyway, I would never give my phone to him.

Despite having my mind made up, Dominic’s gaze was too invasive. I couldn’t stand it. Therefore, I turned my head and looked out of the window.

Suddenly, I saw an extremely terrifying scene through the reflection on the window.

Dominic stood up! More surprisingly, he even started walking towards me.

My heart skipped a beat. When I turned around to see if my eyes were tricking me, I lost my balance. Stumbling wildly, I fell on the bed.

I pointed my finger at him, stuttering as I did so. I couldn’t seem to form any words properly.

“Y-you… Dominic, your leg…”

I rubbed my eyes several times in shock. Dominic was really walking.

What’s going on? Am I dreaming? Or am I seeing things?

“Why? Are you not happy to see my legs working properly?” The man walked towards the bedside and sat down.

That is not the main point!

He has been sitting in a wheelchair all this while. How is it possible for him to have recovered so suddenly?

“No. But, you… Your legs are fine?”

The smile Dominic flashed me sent chills down my spine. “Aren’t you seeing it with your own eyes now? Should I drag you to a five thousand meters run?”

I instantly waved my hands when I heard him saying five thousand meters. I was embarrassingly bad at sports.

The recovery was a really strange feat. How is it possible that he’s recovered so suddenly? That kind of thing only happens in novels! Does he have superpowers? Did he meet a divine physician? It’s just too unrealistic. Unless…

Suddenly, I realized something, and my eyes widened in shock.

“Dominic, were your legs all right all this while? You’ve been lying to me this whole time?”

“I didn’t lie to you. I was injured. I didn’t say I would become crippled for the rest of my life. That’s just your wishful thinking.”


Well… I didn’t remember him saying that. But why did he have to sit in that wheelchair every day if his leg has already recovered? He looks alright to me!

“Were you bored and wanted to play tricks? Why did you pretend to be crippled all this while?” I yelled at him in frustration.

The man sized me up a few times with a thoughtful expression and said, “If I was indeed crippled, would you feel sad? Would you be heartbroken?”

I would never feel sad for him, not to mention being heartbroken. He can dream on!

I whipped my head around and ignored him.

Such a reaction from me caused him to smile indifferently. It seemed that he wasn’t about to insist on hearing my answer.

“Let’s see who my caregiver is chatting with in the middle of the night… Which guy made you so happy?”

Upon hearing that, I hurriedly turned to face him. However, he had already bent over and picked up my phone from the ground.

I wished to reach out and grab it, but Dominic’s leg was fine now. He towered over me when he stood up. When my phone was in his hands, I couldn’t touch it at all.

“What the hell are you doing? Return it to me!”

He ignored me, proceeding to scroll through my phone. His actions and his countenance made me hopping mad. Why couldn’t he respect people’s privacy?

“Brilliant, Liliana!” he exclaimed in a cold tone. His facial expression gradually darkened as he did so.

“Are you done looking? Give it back to me!”

I tiptoed and tried to get my phone back.

Dominic! You’re such a crazy a*shole! Before I could stop him, the man had thrown my phone to the ground, smashing it into pieces.

I moved forward to pick it up, but Dominic grabbed my hand and pulled me back forcefully. I fell back on the bed, and before I could get up, he pressed me underneath him with his entire body weight.

I was about to scold him, “Dominic, you… Mmm…”

However, his sudden kiss prohibited me from doing anything like that.

After five years, he had finally kissed me again.

In an instant, my eyes widened in disbelief, and my mind went blank.

He… How could he kiss me?

His kiss was incredibly forceful to the point where I could barely breathe. I might have passed out if he hadn’t let me go at the right timing.

Wait, no! That’s not the point!

I pushed Dominic away once I came back to my senses. I immediately covered my mouth and retreated to the corner of the room.

“Liliana, why haven’t you learned how to kiss after such a long time? Didn’t your ex-husband teach you anything?”

Upon hearing his mockery, I was infuriated as my chest heaved up and down.

“What does it have to do with you whether I know how to kiss or not? Don’t you know you were acting like a jerk just now? I could’ve called the police!”

I wiped my mouth vigorously and shouted at him, anger lacing my tone.

“You don’t want to kiss me? Then who do you want to kiss? Oh, I know! Is it Nicholas? Both of you had a really nice conversation in the middle of the night, didn’t you? So what are you going to do now? Are you that desperate?”

Dominic spat those words out harshly, his eyes blazing with anger. I was shocked by his rudeness. Did he have to be that mean?

“Do you think Nicholas will be like you? You always have dirty thoughts in your mind. Apart from that, you’ve been lying to me and torturing me all the time. Nicholas is the perfect man of every woman’s dreams. He is so much better than you!”

I was beginning to feel slightly dizzy as anger overwhelmed me. I didn’t even notice how terrible Dominic’s facial expression had become.

“Okay, fine. I have a dirty mind. I have been torturing you all this while. Am I right? Nicholas is way better than me. Is that true? Are you happy to hear that?”

Dominic approached me slowly as he spoke. Then, he reached out his hand and pulled me over when he was right in front of my face.

“What are you doing? Let go of me!” I kept struggling.

His face was clouded over, and I was terrified by his cold voice of tone. “Lilianna, do you know how dirty my mind is? I shall let you see for yourself today!”
