Chapter 462 You Will Be Mine Eventually
It was at this exact moment Elliot’s phone started ringing. At that, he swiftly turned to Anastasia and said, “Go ahead and sleep.”
Not wanting to bother him when he was on the phone, she went out of the room. She was already behind the door when she vaguely heard the man bark in a grave, furious tone, “Is this how you do your job?!”
Still in the presence of the gentle Elliot just seconds ago, Anastasia could feel her heart skip a beat at that.
It only got harder for her to fall asleep after she went back to her room. She couldn’t help but wonder what new troubles he was facing this time.
Christmas Eve had come at last.
Anastasia promised her father that she would bring Jared home only for dinner, not for lunch.
After the boy had woken up from his sleep, Anastasia first made breakfast for him before she prepared lunch for Elliot, who she thought would only wake up at noon.
It was already 11.30 AM in the blink of an eye.
Anastasia got to the door of the master bedroom with light steps to see if the man was still sleeping. As she stood there, she gently twisted the doorknob before walking in as quietly as she could.
Just like she had expected, he was still sound asleep in the king-sized bed covered in gray sheets. She was suddenly tempted to take a closer look at the man who rarely stayed in bed late.
With that in mind, she trod wearily to the side of the bed like a kitten before she lightly propped her arms on the bed and leaned over to look at the man. She first noticed how his thick eyelashes had cast graceful fan-like shadows under his eyes.
She couldn’t help but acknowledge that there were men out there that didn’t even need to lift a finger, and could make people have bad intentions with just their sleeping faces alone.
Anastasia had to swallow the drool that was threatening to spill as she looked at the man’s s**y collarbones peeking out from the collar of his pajamas. Not only that, she could see the outline of his ripped muscles even though his slender, but sturdy body was hidden from plain sight by his pajamas.
Thank you for creating this masterpiece of yours, God!
Her head was filled with nonsensical thoughts when Elliot’s eyelids suddenly shot open, and he stared straight into her eyes. She was so startled that her arms went soft and her whole body fell flat on his chest.
Anastasia started scampering to get up, but with a tug of his long arms wrapped around her waist, she had been moved onto the bed like a ragdoll.
I only wanted to admire your looks for a bit! Even though she was thinking that, she started coaxing him, “I won’t disturb you. Go ahead and sleep a little longer.”
Without saying a word, he buried his face in the crook of her neck and planted a kiss there.
A tingle darted through her body but when she regained the strength in her limbs, she pushed him. “I was wrong! I shouldn’t have disturbed your sleep… Please, spare me!”
Despite her resistance, Elliot still proceeded to drag her under the blanket warm with his body heat. She felt as much comfort as she felt the danger of it.
This was what people meant when they said that men who had just woken up in the morning were dangerous.
Elliot was like a naughty child still foggy from sleep when he caught her in his arms, and he kissed her anywhere and everywhere he could.
“Elliot…” Anastasia whispered. She could feel how hot the man’s body was against her as she pushed him away.
After a long time of not saying a word, he finally protested in a low voice, “It’s just a quick hug.”
Hearing that, she couldn’t help but grumble to herself, Quick hug, my foot!
“You will be mine eventually anyway,” he hummed as he pressed his lips to the crown of her head.
He wanted to own her before she was officially his woman.
However, Anastasia somehow managed to find a chance to get out of bed. Now that she was looking at the man who had sat up in bed, a lazy and seductive air surrounded him, and she thought it didn’t seem like it would be a loss on her part if she were to jump him now.
She quickly said, “Uh… I made lunch. How about you get up and eat something?”
Rather than answering her, Elliot asked, “When are you and Jared going home?”
“We are going in the afternoon.”
The man lightly stretched before he flipped open the blanket, and that was when Anastasia saw the sight that made her immediately turn around in embarrassment. Does he really see me as his wife or something already?! she gulped.
Seeing that, Elliot began teasing her in a thuggish way, “Why did you turn around? This thing here belongs to you.”
Anastasia fled out the door the next second as she couldn’t bear listening to him any longer.
As she ran out, she could hear his bright laughter echoing in the room.
He sounded like a hooligan then.
After she was done preparing his lunch, the man, dressed in a luxurious outfit, came sauntering down from the second floor like a noble king.
He then asked, “Where is Jared?”
