James walked to the room door and heard Thea scolding him.
He touched his nose and murmured.
I see… Thea’s angry that I hadn’t come to see her for the past month.
He knocked on the door.
“Who is it?” Thea’s voice sounded from Inside the room.
James stood at the door and said, “It’s me, James…”
Soon, the door opened.
Thea pushed the door open but left only a small gap.
She looked at James and asked, “What’s wrong? Do you need something?”
James said, “Yeah. I have something I’d like to tell you.”
“Go ahead. I’m listening.” Thea showed no intention of allowing James to enter the room.
James said, “The thing is, I might have to leave for a few days.”
Hearing this, Thea suddenly regained her spirits and asked, “You’re leaving? Where are you going?”
James replied, “I’ll be going abroad.”
“When will you be back?”
James shook his head and said, “I’m not sure. If things go well, I should be back in half a month. If there’s any delay, it may take three to five months.”
He was still clueless about what Sky wanted to do and could not estimate how long this trip would take.
“Okay!” Thea replied casually.
After replying, she shut the door.
James stood at the door with a helpless expression.
When he was about to turn around to leave, Thea suddenly opened the door and said, “Come in.”
James walked into the room ecstatically.
The room was exquisitely furnished, and he could smell a pleasant fragrance permeating the air as soon as he entered.
“The room is well decorated!” James parted his lips and complimented.
Thea looked at James and asked, “Why are you going abroad?”
“Didn’t I tell you about the complex situation in the Capital in the past? I reached an agreement with…” James explained the situation again.
Hearing everything, Thea asked anxiously, “Will it be dangerous?”
James smiled lightly and said, “Your husband is the strongest man in the world right now. Nothing can pose a threat to me.”
Thea was relieved by his reassurance. Although James did not exist in her memories, she subconsciously worried about him and feared he would be in danger.
The two of them did not say anything else.
Suddenly, the room fell into silence.
After a while, James suddenly pressed Thea against the wall.
Thea’s heart started beating rapidly.
James looked at her. He noticed her flushed face and trembling eyelashes.
Thea closed her eyes. However, there was no follow-up action after she waited for a long time.
She opened her eyes.
James reached out his hand and fiddled with her hair, saying with a smile, “There was something on your head…”
“Damn it…” Thea furiously pushed James away.
She thought James was about to kiss her.
Suddenly, James leaned into her and kissed her. His lips pressed against hers.
Thea was taken aback.
After being dazed for a while, she regained her senses and hurriedly pushed James away.
She avoided him and walked to the bed.
She sat down with her head lowered and said in a hushed tone, “Come home soon. Be careful on your journey.”
James licked his lips and said with a smile, “Don’t worry. There are still a few more days. I’ll leave when Sky comes to see me.”
“Okay,” Thea casually replied.
At that moment, she was slightly nervous.
Despite not having memories of James, her heart was pounding rapidly now that she was with him. She felt like she was in love.
“Go outside. I need to take a shower!”
“Uh…” James was stunned.
He took out his phone and checked the time. It was only a little over five in the evening.
He could not help asking, “It’s only five o’clock. Why are you taking a shower now?”
