Elijah let go of her just when the elevator door opened, but before Esther could barely stand, he picked her up and ran straight to his car.
“What do you mean?”
“Don’t come here anymore, Esther,” Elijah said in a deep voice.
“She’ll be fully recovered soon, and you no longer owe her so there’s no need to keep coming.”
“But she likes you!” Esther’s voice couldn’t help but to go dreary. “Did anything happen between you two?”
Elijah raised an eyebrow, “What do you think should happen between us?”
What was going through her head?
“Okay, I believe you!” Esther nodded her head with sudden excitement, “And nothing can happen between you and her in the future! Also, you are not allowed to like her, it can only be me!”
“Of course I only like you!” A gentle smile suffused Elijah’s lips, softening his steely features. The sun’s light cast in through the front windshield and shined on his handsome face, as bright and handsome as a God.
“Keep your word!”
“Esther, married couples have to trust each other. Am I so unworthy of your trust?” Elijah’s tone sounded hurt. He stopped the car by the side of the road suddenly and turned his head to look at her.
“Why did you stop?” Esther glared at him.
Elijah met with Esther’s clear eyes and in a sudden, his tightly pursed thin lips slightly rose into a nice bewitching arc. A faint smile that could barely be found appeared on his stiffened face, “I want to know what you are thinking in your heart.”
“My heart?” Esther was dumbfounded, “What’s there about my heart?”
“Do you love me?” Elijah asked.
“Elijah Perry?!” Esther was stunned for a moment—Did she love him?
That moment of silence made Elijah laugh at himself. After all, she didn’t love him more than he loved her somehow. Ultimately, he was the most frightened one and the one that was most afraid of losing.
Elijah placed his hand on the steering wheel and was prepared to drive.
“Elijah!” Esther’s mind was in momentary confusion. She quickly grabbed Elijah’s cold hard hand when he was about to step on the gas pedal, stopping his movement. Esther wrinkled her eyebrows and asked, “Do you love me then?”
A deep low sigh sounded in the car. Elijah looked up and gently picked up her loose hair, a self-deprecating smile spread across his handsome face, “I asked you first.”
