Captivation: Want Nothing But You, Chapter 214 The Dinner

At night After one full day, the ship had left the boundary of Apliaria and officially entered the high sea.

According to the trip itinerary, they would stay in the high sea from morning until night and then turn back, which meant that the ship would return to the docks at this time tomorrow. Sitting on the edge of the bed, Rachel could clearly see the vast ocean through the window. The lights from the ship reflected on the water below, while the sound of waves proved soothing to the ear. She caressed her belly fondly and said, “Little guy, tomorrow is a big day.” As soon as she finished her words, a gentle knock came from outside the door. The maid’s voice followed after a moment. “Miss Bennet, are you awake?” Rachel stood up and opened the door, curious about what was happening. “Miss Bennet, there is a special dinner party on the fifth floor tonight. Would you like to join the other passengers in the restaurant?” the maid asked with a smile. Rachel frowned and asked, “Dinner party?” “That’s right, Miss Bennet.” The maid looked at Rachel with a hint of guilt in her eyes. But thinking that she didn’t do anything wrong, she immediately straightened up and said with a smile, “Miss Bennet, all the chefs will be working on the fifth floor tonight, so if you want to have dinner alone here, you may have to wait a little longer.” Rachel had a strange feeling in her gut and remained silent for a while. Seeing that Rachel wasn’t responding, the maid quickly added, “If you don’t want to go to the fifth floor for dinner, I’ll just inform them. I’m sure they will figure something out to accommodate room service in your case.” “No, it’s fine. I’ll go to the dining room. Just give me a moment to prepare,” Rachel said casually The maid’s face suddenly lit up. “Then let me go get an evening dress for you, Miss Bennet! I’ll be right back!” “Why the evening dress? It’s just an ordinary dinner. Why do I need to wear something so formal?” Noticing the maid’s shifty behavior, Rachel had a vague guess on what the dinner was really about.

“The dinner party is officiated by the host of the cruise tour. All rich ladies on board will be dolled up in their fancy dresses. You should go get ready, Miss Bennet.” Rachel’s eyes blinked, and she didn’t say anything. In the Western restaurant on the fifth floor.

It seemed that a waiter had been expecting her arrival. As soon as Rachel came up the stairs, he greeted her warmly and ushered her inside. “Miss Bennet, please follow me.” Rachel smiled politely at the waiter and then peeked at the room behind him. The whole layout of the restaurant came into view. The light in the restaurant was a little dim, accentuating the rustic vibe of the furniture inside. Melodic and soothing music could be heard playing in the background to set the pleasant mood. From where Rachel stood, she could clearly see the sea surface with light ripples which reflected the full moon in the sky. Rachel slightly frowned at the sight of only a few waiters in the area. She had expected a grand event

Soon, the waiter led her to a table with the best view in the room.

“Miss Bennet, please have a seat.” The waiter pulled out the chair like a gentleman and gestured for her to sit down. As Rachel settled down, she looked up and spotted a lone well-dressed man on the nearby deck turning around. It was Victor. He ended the phone call he was on, and their eyes met. A look of surprise and amazement came across his handsome face. She was the last person he had expected to see. And he was stunned by how beautiful she looked tonight. After all this time, she could still take his breath away. Rachel wore a red strapless dress, which complemented her fair skin. In the dim light, she looked like a blooming rose in the garden, graceful and elegant. Victor lost himself for a moment. It felt like the first time he ever laid his eyes on her. Since when had she become so fashionable and attractive?

In the past, she always wore heavy makeup, which obscured her natural beauty. Additionally, she typically wore clothes that were outdated in style. But now, her overall appearance was on point. This brand new image of her was a refreshing sight. But Victor’s thoughts strayed back to his previous encounter with Roger. His eyes darkened. No matter how hard he tried, Rachel seemed to grow further distant from him. He didn’t even remember how long it had been since the last time she looked at him with affection. Underneath his rough exterior, his cold heart secretly longed for her love. Before heading over to her table, his phone suddenly vibrated. A text message came in. It was from Carson. “Hope you two enjoy your evening!” Victor pocketed his phone and chuckled to himself. The dinner tonight had been arranged by Carson. “Are you feeling better now?” Victor asked in a gentle voice as he walked over to Rachel. “Yeah, I think so.” Rachel nodded slowly. Within a few minutes, their table was filled with all kinds of mouth-watering dishes. Victor politely dismissed the waiter and observed Rachel as she ate in silence. He clasped his hands together and leaned on the table. “Rachel, don’t you have anything to tell me?” Upon hearing his words, Rachel put her utensils down and stopped eating. She looked up at him with a confused look.

“You didn’t feel dizzy this morning, did you?” Victor asked.
