Of course I knew what Ming meant. We were finally engaged.
We were sure to get married.
I should accept the reality, but I couldn’t forget Sean’s words.
He said he would get me back before we got married.
It had been a few hours.
Now I thought of what happened in the changing room. I thought of all the things Sean did on the couch.
It was clear.
I even remembered how happy we were when we finally got to the top together.
I was distracted. Ming said again, “do you have to think so long?”
I was about to say something, and Lester in my arms murmured.
Then he turned over and covered his ears with his small hands.
I didn’t know if he was really asleep or pretending. But I didn’t need to talk anymore.
Ming was still holding my hand. He passed the temperature of his palm to me and tugged at me. It seemed to represent his determination.
I looked down at Lester’s sleeping face.
I didn’t know what Ming injected him in the video that day.
That was why I became a chicken and didn’t dare to fight Ming. I was afraid Lester would have an accident.
The car reached the door.
I carried Lester upstairs and put him on the bed.
Lester woke up while I was undressing. Then I coaxed him and he fell asleep.
When Lester fell asleep, I went back to my room and took off my dress.
Fortunately, Jessie took away the torn dress when he left, otherwise I really didn’t know how to explain it to Ming.
I took off my clothes to get ready for the bath. When I stood in front of the big mirror in the bathroom, I found several marks on my chest and body.
My heart suddenly became tense!
I didn’t remember Sean leaving masks!
Was it because we were so excited that I totally ignored it?
When I panicked, there was a black shadow on the bathroom door. Then I heard Ming’s voice outside, “honey, let’s take a bath together.”
“Ah…” I looked at my body and knew I couldn’t let him in!
Otherwise, Ming would…
I dared not think.
I stepped back two steps and said, “no, I want to bathe myself.”
“Ha.” Ming chuckled at the door. “Soon we’ll be naked. You don’t have to be shy.”
“I need to get ready.”
I used my hands to wipe the masks on my body.
But it was getting red.
There was no cosmetics in the bathroom and I couldn’t cover it. I was stunned and didn’t know what to do.
I was afraid Ming would break in.
In that case, I really didn’t know what to do.
When I was very worried, Ming at the door sighed softly, “OK, I’ll wait for you to come out.”
I took the longest bath in my life in the bathroom.
I took a bath for about two hours.
By the time I finished, my skin was already red.
I put on my bathrobe and covered the masks. Then I approached the door gently and there was no sound outside.
Was Ming asleep?
I pushed the door open and went out of the dressing room at the bathroom door and took a look at the bedroom.
The light in the bedroom was dark. The moonlight came from the window. I had a look. There was no one in the bedroom.
I hurried to the makeup table and carefully covered my body with a concealer.
Then I went back to the bathroom and looked under the light. I was sure it wouldn’t be found and I returned to the room.
I put on my housecoat and covered my hair.
I went downstairs to find Ming.
But the living room downstairs was empty and I didn’t see anyone in the kitchen.
Did he go out?
When I got to the door, I saw Ming’s coat still hanging in the porch. It was impossible for him to go out.
I went to Lester’s room and the study to find him.
I was sure I didn’t see Ming.
Why did he suddenly disappear?
I hesitated and realized there was another place I didn’t find.
It was the servant’s room.
The entrance and exit of the servants’ three rooms were behind the kitchen, and there was a separate door leading to the back door.
I hesitated and went to the kitchen and opened the door. There were three doors and three rooms.
These rooms were not big and each had only one bed and one wardrobe.
I looked at the three doors and I didn’t know which was Erin’s.
But all three rooms were quiet and there was no light in the crack of the door. Did I think too much?
When I was leaving.
There was Erin’s voice in one of the doors. She was calling Ming. My heart was pounding.
If I was not standing here, I didn’t know the sound insulation of this house was so poor.
“Ming, give it to me…”
They were calling each other’s names and their voices were getting louder and their words were getting more and more obscene.
Ming’s attitude towards everyone was the same.
I was suddenly relieved and didn’t feel guilty about what happened in the lounge today.
When I was about to leave, the light in the other room was turned on.
Then the door opened and I saw Doris trying to lose her temper. She saw me and froze. She faltered, “madam…”
I put my index finger on my lips and motioned to her not to make a sound.
Then I waved and let her go back.
Doris was upset and wanted to say something, but I still waved. I turned and closed the door and left.
I went back to the bedroom and lay on the bed and covered most of my face with a quilt.
I felt desperate.
It was the first night I was engaged, but he and I were strangers.
I was afraid it would be more difficult in the future.
But I had to keep going.
I fell asleep. When I woke up the next day, Ming was not in bed.
If it wasn’t for the wrinkles on the sheet, I would even suspect that he didn’t sleep here last night.
When I changed and went to Lester’s room, Lester was still asleep.
I woke him up and dressed him. When we went downstairs, I saw Ming sitting on the sofa and reading the newspaper in his hand.
When he saw us coming downstairs, he looked up and smiled softly, “good morning.”
As I responded to him, I looked at Erin standing next to the sofa.
Erin was also looking at me at this time. Her eyes were full of provocations. I could see clearly that there were two shallow kissing marks on her neck.
