Chapter 935 The Punishment She Deserves
Benjamin sighed softly and caressed her head. “I’ll tell you!” Arissa quickly turned back. “So you do know!” “I didn’t want you to know because I didn’t want you to worry about Tim.” “Speak!” Arissa urged after leaning toward him.
Benjamin’s heart softened when he saw how watery her eyes were. “In order to make ends meet, Tim had to carry coals down the mountain with the other kids in Rutaceae Village.” Arissa felt a sharp pain in her heart. “He was still so little…”
She recalled the time when she saw those coal mine workers from afar. That was so dangerous…
Benjamin pulled her into his embrace and caressed her head. He comforted her, “He doesn’t have to live a tough life anymore!”
Arissa suddenly choked up. It’s my fault he had to suffer. I’m so useless. “I’ve failed to protect him!”
“It wasn’t your fault.” Benjamin lowered his head and kissed her forehead. Arissa sniffled and suppressed her sorrow. “When is the court hearing for Danna’s case?”
“Next Monday. You want to go?”
Arissa nodded, her eyes filled with hatred. I want to see Danna get the punishment she deserves. “Sure. I’ll bring you there.” Benjamin rested his chin on her shoulder.
Arissa bobbed her head. “I want to see her get punished!” “Don’t worry. I’ll make sure she never gets out.” A malicious glint flashed across Benjamin’s eyes. After that, he kissed her eyelid and crooned, “Go to sleep.”
Arissa felt a great sense of security as she breathed in his smell and listened to his strong heartbeat. “You didn’t let me down, Benjamin.”
“Did you think I have no rationality left in me?” Benjamin raised his brows and smiled at her. That woman tricked me and almost caused the death of my kid. Why would I ever let that slide?
“No. I thought you loved her. I was worried that you would be soft on her.”
Benjamin lifted her chin and looked at her with his dark eyes. “Do you still think so now?”
Arissa’s heart started racing when she met his fiery eyes.
“No,” she mumbled.
“No?” Benjamin’s lips quirked up.
Arissa pouted and cast him a quick glance before averting her gaze. “You don’t love her anymore!”
Benjamin hummed seductively in response.
Arissa’s heart did a somersault.
He then leaned forward and kissed her passionately.
All of a sudden, the initially silent private lounge was filled with moans.
Arissa was turned on, and before she knew it, she wrapped her arms around his neck and kissed him back.
Upon getting a positive response from her, Benjamin rolled over and pinned her down before deepening the kiss.
Right then, the desires that he had suppressed in the restroom earlier sprang to life again.
Right when Arissa could barely catch her breath and things were about to escalate, her phone rang.
“My phone!” Arissa recomposed herself and held Benjamin’s hands that were on her waist.
Benjamin had no choice but to stop what he was doing and move away from her to grab her phone.
He furrowed his brows when he saw that it was a call from Gavin. Why is he always calling her?
“Who is it?” Arissa craned her neck and glanced at the phone screen.
Seeing that Benjamin was about to decline the call, Arissa immediately snatched the phone away and glared at him. “What’s the matter with you? Why would you decline your son’s call?”
Benjamin ended up lying down with his arms wrapped around her.
Lying on top of him, Arissa answered the phone.
“Mommy, do you know Daddy has announced the marriage?”
