My Bossy CEO Husband, Chapter 54 She Is His Medicine
Wendy tossed around on the bed, an unexplainable heat spreading through her body.
She was just as wonderful as he thought.
In the last thirty years, he had never imagined that he would ever fall for a woman like this.
She once said that she didn’t believe in falling in love at first sight.
In fact, she thought that was purely an excuse and eventually the real purpose was always ***.
Admittedly, he used to feel the same way before they met.
For the past thirty years, he had never fallen in love with any woman or had romantic relationships with them.
Truth be told, he had initially found being intimate with women to be repugnant.
He knew that he was mentally ill.
His parents had a psychologist check him out, but they didn’t know what to do with him.
Due to that, a rumor was spread around saying that he didn’t like women.
He made no effort to reject those rumors.
At least, fewer women would approach him now.
Then, Precious came into his life.
After he was blessed with a child, she was all that mattered.
He thought he didn’t need the love of any other woman.
Never had he considered that he would ever fall in love with a woman the moment he first laid eyes on her.
When he met her for the first time, his once black and white world suddenly turned bright and colorful.
He felt as if there was a reason for him to get out of bed in the morning.
He was a new man because of her.
At the same time, loving her came with all kinds of intense emotions.
Jealousy! Fury! Desire! Recalling her interaction with Jeffrey earlier, Ryan’s eyes darkened as he bit her lips.
In the next second, he could taste a tinge of blood on his tongue.
Wendy moaned, her eyebrows furrowing.
Ryan froze, and carefully studied her reaction.
She waved her arms like she was trying to get rid of mosquitoes, then she rolled over and fell asleep again.
‘This carefree woman would be the death of me!’ he screamed in his head.The next morning.Wendy woke up in pain.Her arms and legs were sore all over.
When she opened her eyes, she was shocked because she was clinging to him like a koala.
She had both her arms and legs wrapped around him tightly as if she was scared that he was going to run away somehow.
The position was quite intimate, actually.
On the other hand, Ryan slept in the same position all night.
His eyes were closed and his chest rose and fell peacefully.
‘***! What the **** did I do?!” she thought.
Carefully, Wendy loosened her grip on his body as quick as she could, then rolled over to the edge of the bed.
She sat up, then looked back at the sleeping Ryan, and awkwardly rubbed the back of her head.
Regret immediately washed over her.
‘Ah! What was I thinking? Am I crazy?!’ she scolded herself.
It wasn’t a secret that she was a restless sleeper, but this was the last thing she expected herself to do! She couldn’t believe that she just embraced his body like that! Although, Ryan still managed to fall asleep somewhat.
‘Wait! He actually fell asleep? Did it really work?’ Wendy quickly got out of bed and put on her slippers.
She quietly opened the door and was about to call for someone but stopped when she saw two men outside the room.
Luke and Leo had been sitting on the chairs and waiting for a long time.
When they heard the sound of the door opening, they quickly stood up as if they both got suddenly electrocuted.
Upon seeing Wendy on the other side of the door, Luke had an odd expression painted on his face.
‘Geez!’ Someone bit her lips! ‘Way to go, Ryan!’ Pointing at her mouth, Luke questioned, “What’s happened to your lips?”
‘Uh? What? My lips?’Instinctively, Wendy’s hand touched her lips.
It was only then she realized that there was a stinging pain in her mouth, but she didn’t give it much thought.
“Maybe I bit myself while I was asleep,” Wendy answered, unsure.
Something flashed through Luke’s eyes.
“Where’s Ryan, by the way?”
“He’s still asleep.” Luke was surprised.
“What? Really?” She nodded.
“Thank ***,” he murmured, relieved.
“How many hours has he been asleep?” he asked.
Shaking her head, she answered, “I have no idea.I fell asleep before he did.”
They sneaked into the room quietly and found Ryan on the bed.His face was scrunched up as if he was just about to wake up.
“Wendy, go to him.”
Admittedly, Wendy still felt a little guilty about practically using him as a pillow for the whole night.
Quietly, she sat beside him on the bed, and his hand automatically held hers.
His expression softened.
He rolled over a bit so that he was lying on his side.
After a few minutes, he was snoring softly again.
Wendy was speechless.
Luke and Leo looked at each other with a surprised look on their faces.
In the beginning, they had their doubts.
Now, they were absolutely sure that Wendy was the reason why Ryan could fall into a deep slumber.
Luke almost cried with joy.
After searching for so many years, he finally found a way to cure Ryan’s insomnia.
“Wendy, please, let him sleep a little longer.”
But she still had work to do.
With a timid expression on her face, Wendy lowered her voice as she said, “He’s asleep now.How about I sneak away quietly?”
“No.” He shook his head.
“If you leave now, he’s going to wake up.”
Luke grabbed a chair and put it closer to the bed.
He sat on it and clasped his hands together and begged, “Wendy, you are Ryan’s cure.His life is up to you now.Please don’t just leave him alone…”
“Too dramatic! He is over-exaggerating!’ Wendy thought.Leo also sauntered over next to Luke and added, “Miss Finch, we are sure that you’re the only person that can make Ryan fall asleep.”
“I still have work,” countered Wendy.
“I’ll help you ask Carter for a leave!” Wendy was shocked.
“No way!” she protested.
If Luke helped her to ask for a leave, then Carter would definitely misunderstand her relationship with him.
It drove Wendy crazy.
The only reason she agreed to Luke’s absurd request last night was to prove him wrong.
She wanted him to realize how insane he sounded.
If she had failed, then Luke wouldn’t have bothered her about it anymore.
Unfortunately, the opposite happened.
Wendy never thought that she could really affect Ryan’s sleep! ‘What the **** is going on?’ Feeling like she was trapped, Wendy’s head started to throb painfully.
Sighing, she massaged her temples gently before giving Luke an icy glare.
“Luke, we had an agreement.I said that I will only stay with him for one night.” Luke felt embarrassed.
“No! We’re not even married yet.This is not right!” she hissed.Luke’s eyes lit up as if he just had an idea.
“Oh, is that what you’re worried about? Easy fix! Just marry my brother, then!”Wendy stared at the man like he had just grown a second head.
“Are you crazy? No way!”
“But” She cut him off.
“No! No! That’s not happening!”
However, she remained firm with her stance.
At this moment, Ryan loosened his grip on her a little, and then his cold hoarse voice echoed in the quiet room as he spoke, “I’m sorry for the trouble, Miss Finch.”
Having finally woken up, Ryan let go of her hand and quickly sat up from the bed.After a good night’s sleep, he looked pretty refreshed.
He rubbed his head and uttered in a deep voice, “You may leave now!”
Luke shot the woman a disgruntled stare but didn’t say anything else.
She felt a little guilty, but she couldn’t just lie beside him every night! Wendy got out of bed quickly, bowed her head, and muttered out a soft, “Sorry.”
Then, she hurriedly left the room.
As soon as she was gone, it felt as if the temperature in the room became ice cold.
