It had been two days after my parents left and Cain immediately returned to my side.
Ever since then, like a charm, the nightmares never returned. His presence and scent at night were all I needed to make me feel safe and protected.
We never really talk about the accident. Not because Cain looked like he would kill someone every time he would glanced at my leg or my injured face nor because I was not curious to know. I kind of already knew who it was and made an overall assumption since the news days ago shook the world.
The Goldwood’s donated their entire fortune to charity and contented to live their lives peacefully on an unknown island.
What evidence do I still need more than this shocking information?
I was sure it was not that simple as that.
I peek at the man beside me who was quietly driving me to school since I still couldn’t move my right leg.
I knew that Cain came from a wealthy and powerful family, but I didn’t know that his this powerful.
Come to think of it…
I didn’t know much about him.
I didn’t notice that we were already inside Artem University.
It was my first coming to school again after that incident and Artem had already resumed its classes a week ago, but since I was still injured at that time (even now), I took a one week leave to recuperate some more.
Cain unbuckled his seatbelt and gotten off the car. He walked on the other side to assist me since my right leg hadn’t fully functioned yet and was forced to have a crutch to help me to move about.
“Are you going to be alright?”
Cain made sure that I could walk normally before letting me go.
“Yeah. Don’t worry.”
I glanced towards Estela just right behind us who had gotten out of her car.
“I’ll ride with Estela later.”
“I better go.”
I smiled at him and took my first step towards my department when he took long strides and was in front of me – blocking my way.
Before I could even plead no, he cupped my face and gave me a passionate kiss for all the world to see as the aquamarine ring glistened under the morning light on his left ring finger.
I couldn’t exactly fight back for the reason that I was handicapped. And frankly, I think that he was loving my current state of helplessness when he lingered in my mouth more than necessary.
“Mmpphh….” I protested and secretly hit his chest when he was already depriving me of oxygen.
“Message me every hour.”
I restrained to roll my eyes.
Ever since that kidnapping incident, he was been adamant to keep me under his watch.
He kissed my forehead and before I could even glare at him – he was already inside his car and drove off.
I secretly took a quick peek at the stunned audience, their mouth gaping.
“Sis in law, wait up!!”
I ignored Estela as I tried not to be so conscious at the uncomfortable antagonistic stares thrown at me.
I don’t care about it anymore.
Ever since my parents knew about our relationship – I felt like an uncaged bird soaring freely across the sky.
So I started to openly wore the ring he gave me which made the man so happy that he glanced at my ring finger every chances he got – beaming with happiness.
“Geez~! For a person who’s walking with a crutch, you sure are fast!” Estela whined when she finally caught up with me.
“Estela…” I started, a bit hesitant.
“Do you know…… I mean…. can you give me…. information about your brother… You know… things he likes… and dislikes….”
Estela batted her eyelids at me. Then she smiled knowingly.
“Why don’t you ask her yourself, Leanna?” She looked all cute at me as she pressed her finger on her lips.
I rolled my eyes.
What is the essence of this if I don’t know it myself?
I didn’t want to ask him. I wanted to surprise him as he did to me.
I mean, Cain practically knew everything about me.
My favorite food.
My favorite colors.
My favorite brands.
Down to the last details of what shape I like my nails to be.
Who does that?
“Oh~ don’t feel so hopeless. I’ll tell you one thing that he loves in this whole wide world.”
My face brightened as I stared at her expectantly.
Estela smiled and shyly pointed her finger at me.
I wanted to knock her head with my crutch maybe that’ll make her sane.
