He managed to catch her and maintain their balance. However, their bodies were now very close together.
The distance between them was so close at this moment; it was almost a seamless contact. Edgar could even catch the faint fragrance coming from Caitlyn’s body clearly.
The temperature in the room gradually increased and both of their breathing gradually grew heavier. Both of them were keeping themselves still, however. That was because both Edgar’s and Caitlyn’s bodies were a little stiff at this time.
This was Caitlyn’s first time engaging in intimate movements like this with the opposite sex ever since she had grown into a woman.
Their bodies were stuck tightly against one another at this moment. One of Edgar’s palms was even resting on Caitlyn’s back. Both of them could even feel each other’s body heat.
Caitlyn could even hear her own heartbeat. Her mind had also crashed, she did not know what to do. As for Bjorne, his eyes were wide and likewise, he was also at a loss as to what to do.
“Brother…” Caitlyn called out softly.
At this moment, her jaw was against Edgar’s shoulder and her mouth was next to his ear. Her voice was like that of whispering wind and her breath was like orchids. Her warm, exhaled breath came in contact with Edgar’s earlobe and it made him unable to help but feel a wave of excitement.
“Brother…” Caitlyn called out again softly.
Although she had not gone through certain life experiences, how could she know be aware of this at this age?
Being able to feel Edgar’s strong heartbeat made her blush and feel extremely shy. Yet, a faint expectation had risen in her heart at the same time.
Caitlyn would feel disgusted if any other man were to hug her. She would not even give them the chance to. However, she was lingering in Edgar’s embrace. She even thought about going one step further.
Seeing that Edgar was not saying anything, Caitlyn slowly reached her small hand out and gripped his back slowly.
Her breathing was becoming more rapid too. Her warm breath kept hitting Edgar’s ear.
“Brother, I like you… Actually, I’ve liked you since I was a child. I’ve liked you even growing up…”
Caitlyn plucked up the courage to say these words to Edgar for the first time.
And when Edgar heard this, his once dazed mind abruptly sobered up. He absolutely could not allow Caitlyn to like him.
Edgar was now engaged in a marriage contract. Moreover, he also loved Willow so very much.
How could he allow himself to be with other women?
Edgar and Caitlyn would have been a great romance story if it were not for Willow. This was what May had always hoped for after all. However, Edgar absolutely could not do anything that would disappoint Willow now.
As for Caitlyn, she thought Edgar had accepted her affections seeing that he was not saying anything. She could not help but feel a little excited. She then mustered up even more courage and slowly moved her palm to Edgar’s chest.
She moved her small hand and touched Edgar’s button. However, Edgar reached out abruptly and pushed Caitlyn away at this moment.
“Catie, you should head to bed soon. It’s late…” Edgar took a deep breath to calm himself down.
“Brother, what’s wrong?” Caitlyn was looking at Edgar with a gaze that carried disappointment and some grievances.
“It’s nothing… I’ll ask Vivian to pick you up tomorrow.” Edgar shook his head slightly but did not dare look at Caitlyn again.
He and Caitlyn were childhood sweethearts. They even took a bath together when they were young. They had indeed been inseparable. Both of them were adults now though and he would of course, not be able to endure being so close to one another.
He was afraid he would do something bad to Caitlyn if he stayed here any longer. If that happened, not only would he be irresponsible to Caitlyn, but also to Willow.
Caitlyn had also come to her sense a little.
“You… You should also rest earlier,” she said with a flushed face.
After that, Edgar hurriedly turned around and took his leave. He felt the cool, night breeze when he came out of Caitlyn’s room.
Seriously… A girl changes eighteen times between childhood and womanhood…
Edgar shook his head lightly and could not help but sigh.
Caitlyn used to just be a little brat who followed him around. Now, she was a slender and elegant woman. She was young, full of energy, and beautiful. Anyone who saw this would have their hearts thumping.
Alas, Edgar had Willow now.
“What’s the matter, commander?” Vivian walked over suspiciously and asked.
“Nothing, Let’s go…” Edgar shook his head and got into the car.
Vivian drove them back to Riverside Villa.
Edgar had been occupied with errands outside for these past few days that he had no time to come back here and rest. Even though he was returning there today, he would still be very busy.
Construction would be starting on that land in Campbell District tomorrow.
This groundbreaking ceremony was also very important and he could not be sloppy about it. Hence, Edgar began discussing various details with Vivian when he returned to the villa.
No other words were exchanged that night.
The next day, Campbell District.
