“Yes, I’ll sleep, Jared responded hoarsely. “But you have to stay with me.” He spoke with dominance as he grabbed Ellen tightly so that her face was against his chest while her body was in his arms.
Ellen’s hand was held down and she felt uncomfortable, so she tried to adjust her position. “Don’t move.” A sudden warning came to her ear, sounding dangerous..
Ellen stiffened, afraid to move. She was like a big ragdoll being held by the man that was helping him fall asleep.
She didn’t even dare to breathe too loudly, not knowing how long he would hold her like this. She wondered if being his human pillow was part of her job responsibilities. Aside from sleeping on my bed and holding me to sleep, will he have other strange requests?
Ellen’s head was a mess, and she couldn’t tell if he had already fallen asleep. She was torn between whether to look at him or not.
In the end, she lifted her head cautiously, but she accidentally hit the man’s hard jaw with her forehead. When she looked up to see if he was awake, she found herself looking into his deep, captivating eyes. The next thing she knew, he was holding her face, and his hot lips fell on hers at once.
How could he be asleep? He was in his sexual prime at 26 years old!
Blushing, Ellen couldn’t catch her breath as he kissed her hard. She felt that this was the first time a man had appeared so dangerous and made her feel so vulnerable.
“No… No, that’s not part of my job description,” Ellen gasped, somewhat irritated.
Jared’s breathing was slightly ragged as he propped himself up to look at her. Then, Ellen pushed him away with her hands on his firm chest and blushed, saying, “My job doesn’t involve warming your bed.”
“Job?” Jared was surprised. Did this girl think she was still working her hours?
Ellen’s hand was placed on his strong chest, but she thereafter withdrew it shyly. This man’s aura is just too overwhelming.
“Be my girlfriend!” The man suddenly leaned down and spoke in a low and earnest voice. He was holding her face so that she couldn’t avoid him.
Ellen couldn’t resist his advances. At that moment, her mind went blank. Blinking, she stared hard at him.
“From now on, you don’t have to work, and I’ll take care of you. I’ll give you whatever you want,” Jared proposed with some very favorable conditions.
“Then… Will we get married?” Ellen blinked, wanting a stable future. “Of course. When my parents come back from abroad, I’ll introduce you to them,” Jared answered firmly.
Ellen felt like she was dreaming. He is such an outstanding man while I am just an ordinary woman. Why would he choose me? “You don’t have to answer me now. Take three days to think about it.”
The man kissed her on the forehead and added, “I’m going home.”
Ellen felt the pressure and weight on her body lifted, but it also brought a sense of disappointment to her heart. It was such a conflicting feeling-on one hand, she wanted him to stay, but on the other hand, she was afraid.
“Don’t you want to rest for a while more?” Ellen asked as she stood up. “Before 10.00AM on Monday, I need your answer.” The man picked up his phone and car keys from the table and even set a time for her.
Ellen blushed and nodded. She was relieved that she wasn’t forced to give an answer right now, so she felt more relaxed.
Jared was finally satisfied and opened the door to leave. As he closed the door, his brows furrowed with discomfort. He left not because he didn’t want to stay with her, but because he was afraid of losing control and hurting her.
Ellen bit her lip, her face still red. All she could think about was the kiss from earlier. It was beautiful and sweet. If her last bit of reason hadn’t held her back, she wouldn’t have been able to resist this man. However, what she didn’t know was that her resistance had already defeated 99.99% of other women because this man’s appeal was so overwhelming that few could resist when he took initiative.
That night, Ellen couldn’t sleep. For the first time in 23 years, she experienced what it was like to lose sleep because of a man.
