Duke sat on the other side of the bed.
“Mr. Brown, get us some chocolate drinks,” he said indifferently. Mr. Brown immediately went to execute the order. Aside from the unconscious Harold, there were only two people left in the ward. The air was filled with the scent of disinfectants.
“Thank you for this. If you need any help in the future, just let me know,” Duke said in a hoarse voice.
“I’m very fond of Harold, so I’m willing to save him. Besides…” Adina’s tongue was a little bitter. “He must have sneaked out of the Winters family villa to look for me. That’s why he met with a car accident.”
She sounded a little sad, and she looked down to hide all her emotions.
Duke paused for a while before he added, “He really likes you.”
Adina smiled faintly.
When she looked at the bedridden Harold, she subconsciously reached out to stroke his face.
When she saw the boy at the airport for the first time, she took a great liking to him.
Later, when Harold came to her again and again, she began to let her guard down.
Besides Melody and Alden, one could say that Harold was the third person she cared about. Adina raised her head and stared at Duke seriously. “Harold got into an accident when he sneaked out to look for me. I’m suddenly afraid that Mel might also get involved in an accident if she sneaks out to find you. Can you promise me that you’ll take good care of Mel if she ever shows up, regardless of the reason?”
Duke promised without any hesitation.
That little girl had entered his life like a pure angel.
His heart was always cold and hard, but whenever the girl looked at him, his cold, hard walls would instantly crumble.
In the past, he did not understand why people always wanted a daughter, and he finally understood some of the joys now.
If Melody were his daughter, he would definitely pamper her like a princess so that she would be the envy of everyone in Sea City.
Adina looked Duke in the eyes.
From his dark gaze, she discovered that the man really liked Melody
Suddenly, she felt curious,
Why did Melody like Duke so much?
Similarly, she was also curious about why Harold liked her so much…
Was there any connection between these two occurrences? While she stared at Duke, he stared at her in return.
As he stared at her beautiful and delicate face, the coldness in his eyes slowly faded.
This woman was deadly attractive to him. It was as if she could put a spell on him.
“Haha! Dad and Aunt Adina have been staring at each other for three minutes…”
A weak yet mischievous voice suddenly rang out in the ward. Adina turned sideways and looked over. Then, her eyes lit up. “Harold, you’re finally awake. How do you feel? Do you have a headache?”
“No…” Harold blinked. “The TV says when a boy and a girl look at each other, they like each other. Aunt Adina, do you like my dad? Dad, if you like Aunt Adina too, can you marry her?”
Adina found herself speechless.
After the accident, this boy was concerned about such a thing right after he woke up. Adina suddenly suspected that the car accident was fake!
Duke was at a loss for words.
Did Harold want to get beaten up? How dare he try to be a matchmaker!
Even so… Duke stared at Adina.
