One could not help but wonder about the girl that had commanded such care and attention from the car owner. Meanwhile, the girl in question was sound asleep, and she did not wake up from the long and comfortable evening nap.
At the same time, a figure who hurried into her neighborhood pressed urgently on the elevator button. When he arrived in front of the door, he was panting hard from the rush on his way here out of worry for Ellen.
“Ellen! Ellen, are you home?” Jared banged on her door without a care for the neighbors at that moment. He needed to know if she was home.
Ellen woke up groggily and thought she heard the sound of someone banging on her door in her dream. When she was fully awake, she realized that someone was indeed making a commotion.
Who is it? She tensed up. After taking a peek via the peephole, she immediately relaxed when she saw Jared. She opened the door for him and looked at his anxious demeanor, puzzled. “President Presgrave? What’s wrong?”
He immediately extended his arms and pulled her into a solid hug. He sighed softly and confessed, “I almost got a heart attack because of you.”
She looked even more lost. He appeared to have suffered from a great shock, judging from his tight hug that almost suffocated her. What did I do now?
He finally let go of her and held her by the shoulders. “Why is your phone turned off?”
“Is it turned off?” She rubbed her eyes. “I just woke up. Let me take a look.”
He broke into a smile when he realized that he had misunderstood the situation. It was his first time overthinking and worrying about a girl.
After checking, Ellen found out that her phone was indeed dead. “I’m sorry. My phone is off. I probably took too many photos of the cat. That’s why the phone shut down when I was asleep.”
He sighed and ordered, “Keep your phone on at all times.” His heart had been pumping wildly from the scare.
“Alright. Got it. I promise I will not turn off my phone, and I will keep an eye on the battery level every day.” She raised her hand and swore. Meanwhile, the cat had climbed onto Jared’s shoes and was purring at him. He bent over to change into home slippers and scooped the cat into his arms, caressing it.
“Are you hungry?” he asked. She shook her head. “Not really. I just got up. What about you?!
“I’m not too hungry too. Let’s have a late dinner later.” He lay on her couch and checked out the cat in his arms. Its features were distinct, and it was as lovely as its owner.
“Meow!” The cat rubbed itself against him and rudely peed on him.
“Gosh!” Taken by surprise, he sensed the wetness seeping into his clothes and reaching his skin. Thankfully, he did not throw the cat out of shock. Ellen rushed over to check on him, and she covered her mouth giggling when she saw the stain on his white shirt.
Angry but amused, he laughed along. “This little rascal! I’m going to teach you a lesson!”
He immediately unbuttoned his shirt. While scolding the cat softly, Ellen looked up and witnessed him taking off his clothes. His muscular and sexy upper body was exposed in front of her.
Her pretty eyes widened in shock, and she quickly turned her back on him. Gosh! How could he take off his shirt just like that? “A-Are you taking a shower?” she asked. “I am.”
“But I don’t have clothes for you at my place!” she reminded him.
“Not a problem. I’ll have Stanley send over some fresh clothes.” He made a call to Stanley and gave his orders. Half-naked, he narrowed his eyes at her. “Why? Is my body not attractive enough?”
