“You may say things casually, but I cannot take them casually,” Stanley said before pressing Xyla’s head against his chest.
At such a close distance, Xyla could clearly hear his heart beating. Each heartbeat pulsed with strength. A sweet sensation began to spread in her heart. Although Xyla said something half-heartedly, Stanley took it seriously and made the fireworks go on for the entire night in the manor.
She had her master to thank for this. If it weren’t for him, Xyla and Stanley wouldn’t have known how each other so soon.
“Is anything wrong with your wound?” Stanley asked as he kissed her hair.
The light scent of rose was almost like an addictive drug.
“No…” Xyla said.
Throughout the process, Stanley made sure to be very careful. Since Xyla’s surgery wound had basically healed, having sex for an extended period didn’t affect her wound.
“That’s good,” Stanley said.
Just like that, the two of them hugged each other to sleep.
At a little after nine in the morning, they were both woken up by a phone alarm. When Xyla opened her eyes, she felt her body ache all over. It didn’t feel like her body anymore.
Stanley was the first to get up. After switching the alarm off, he looked at Xyla. “I’m sorry for waking you up… I have to head to the office for a while. I’ll return at noon to celebrate your birthday with you. Sleep for a while longer, hmm?”
Now that the room was bright again and the sunlight shone upon his body, Xyla noticed scratch marks all over his body. There were even two red markings on his neck. These were all left behind by Xyla the night before without her realizing it.
When she saw these markings, she blushed once more… Was she mad? How could she do such a thing?
Noticing her gaze, Stanley calmly looked down at the markings on his body. He then smiled and asked a question despite knowing its answer, “What are you looking at?”
“Nothing,” Xyla said before tugging at the duvet and only showing her arms.
Stanley chuckled and walked right into the bathroom. After taking a bath, Stanley picked a white shirt, a pair of black pants, and a black coat from the cabinet before putting them on. With his collars left open, the red markings on his neck were very much visible. They made him appear very cool and sexy.
When Xyla saw those two markings, she felt her heart clenching again. “About that… Your collar. Please cover it up.”
“There’s no need for that,” Stanley said.
“Your employees will be shocked,” Xyla said.
Stanley walked over to the bed and ruffled Xyla’s hair. “They’ll get used to it after seeing it a few more times.”
‘A few more times?’ Xyla thought. ‘What was he hinting at?’ Her heartbeat quickened.
“Aren’t you going to sleep some more?” Stanley asked.
“Not anymore,” Xyla said. With that, she sat up on the bed.
As soon as she did so, the strap of her sleeping robe naturally fell off. She looked even more desirable.
‘F*ck…’ Stanley gritted his teeth before pulling her close and pinching her chin. “Are you determined not to let me leave?”
“What do you mean?” Xyla’s heart was still racing.
Beep, beep, beep…
Right then, Stanley’s phone started vibrating. When he saw that it was a call from Zack Cassidy, he immediately answered it.
“Master Stanley… Please be at the office in an hour for a meeting. Don’t forget that our meeting yesterday wasn’t finished yet,” Zack said.
“Tell them we’ll resume in the afternoon,” Stanley said.
In the living room downstairs, Zack felt petrified.
Had Stanley really become a man who no longer woke up early, just like what the high-level executives said?
“Yes,” Zack said helplessly. “But, there are still many documents that await you… ” Zack added.
Before Zack could finish his sentence, Stanley had already ended the call.
