Chapter 1687 She Used To Be With Duke
After thinking it over for a few days, Linda reported the situation at Arielle’s and Vinson’s to Duke. She had not intended to do so initially. After all, Duke had abandoned her. However, she had been by his side for five years, and in the end, she could not help but tell him everything.
In truth, she harbored hopes that he would ask her to return. She had been with him for five years, and during that period, she had been the only one by his side. However, the call ended up dealing her a more terrible blow than she had ever imagined.
After he spoke, she heard the sound of lustful cries and panting on the other end of the line before she could respond.
“Got it!” she cried out. There was a pang of pain in the depths of her heart as she ended the call. Then, she slid down into a crouching position and hugged her knees.
At that moment, Mark opened the door and came in carrying a big bag of snacks. When he saw her crouched on the floor, he hurried forward immediately.
Anxious yet afraid she would find him annoying, he asked cautiously, “W-What’s wrong? Are you feeling unwell?”
She slowly raised her head when she heard his voice, and his heart ached when he saw her tear-stained face.
Reaching out a hand, he clumsily tucked her hair behind her ears, then gently wiped away her tears. “Linda, no matter what happens, I’m here for you.”
After uttering those words uncertainly, he thought she would be disgusted by them. But to his surprise, she threw herself into his arms. He could not help feeling somewhat nervous, not knowing whether to hug her or not.
“Do you love me?” Linda asked as she wrapped her arms around his neck.
Mark nodded. He had fallen head over heels in love with her the moment he laid eyes on her that day.
When Linda saw him nod, she tightened her arms around his neck and raised her lips to his. That action caused him to lose all control. Heaven knows how often I’ve thought about this feeling since that time in the car.
Mark picked her up in his arms in one swift motion. They kissed as they undressed, then he placed her on the bed and pinned her down with his body. Looking into her eyes, he murmured, “It’s not too late to change your mind.”
He did not want her to regret it afterward.
Linda did not say anything. Instead, she placed her hands behind his head and pressed her lips against his.
That meant she would not regret it!
Having gotten her answer, Mark lowered his head and kissed her hungrily…
After indulging in their carnal desires to their hearts’ content, Mark gazed at the woman next to him and asked in a low voice, “Linda, will you be my girlfriend?”
He did not mind that she used to be with Duke. All he cared about was whether she would end up as his woman.
She remained silent. Getting up, she lit a cigarette and stood by the window, gazing out at the moon.
His heart sank a little when he saw that. Picking up a bathrobe, he got up and went over to Linda. Then, he draped the bathrobe over her and hugged her from behind.
“I’ll treat you well,” he murmured softly.
Linda turned to look at him. “Mark, you should find someone who can make you happy—”
“Linda, I only want you!” he cut in before she could finish her sentence.
If it’s not with her, I don’t plan to date anyone.
“Are you serious? You don’t mind that I was with Duke for five years?”
Seeing him nod, she stubbed out her cigarette and looked at him. “All right. From now on, you’re my boyfriend.”
Over at a base somewhere, Torsten gazed down at the child with a slight frown.
