Chapter 55: Dylan’s Visit
Tonight’s party was filled with interesting moments.
I had seen Caroline’s tricks, and also witnessed Kevin being driven away.
Caroline always wore a smile on her face, but I had a feeling that she wasn’t as simple as she seemed.
However, it was a good thing that Kevin was finally sent back to his pack.
I didn’t feel even an ounce of pity for him.
He deserved the punishment he got.
After dealing with Kevin’s matter, we all returned to the party.
After dinner, Elizabeth left with Caroline.
“Caroline, come with me.I have a lot to talk to you about.”
“Anthony, Jennifer, I’ll be leaving with Mom,”
Caroline said to me and Anthony, waving goodbye at us.
Once the two of them left, Anthony led me to the forest on the island.
Both of us liked taking a walk in the forest.
It was quiet and peaceful here.
“Jennifer, I think I should explain to you about Caroline.”
“Anthony held my hand and looked at me affectionately.”
“Her father contributed a lot to the Osman Kingdom, and he died at a young age for the country.At that time, Caroline was only a few years old.My mother felt sorry for her, so she took her in and raised her.What’s more, Caroline saved my mother’s life once.So my mother treats her as her own daughter, and my father even bestowed her with the title of the princess.I’m not related to Caroline by blood, but ever since I was young, I knew that my mother thought of her as her daughter.And she and I used to playmates when we were kids.Because of all this, I’ve always treated Caroline as a younger sister.You are the only mate for me.”
“Anthony, don’t worry.I understand.”
Warmth enveloped my heart as I listened to Anthony’s earnest explanation, and I leaned against his chest.
“I love you.But I think Miss Wilson has feelings for you.”
“I will be careful.”
Anthony pinched my chin with his fingers, lowered his head, and kissed me.
“Jennifer, I won’t let any other woman get close to me.You are the only one for me, now and forever.”
Those words made me felt like I was melting into a puddle.
I closed my eyes, wrapped my arms around his waist, and kissed him back.
Tonight, Anthony’s kiss was particularly gentle.
The warmth of his lips against mine made me moan.
I slipped my tongue into his mouth and let it explore the crevices of his mouth.
Gradually, the kiss grew more and more intense, and Anthony’s hands grew restless.
He slipped one hand into my dress and began kneading my *******.
With the other hand, he spread my thighs apart, and gently stroked my ****.
Gasp after gasp left my lips as he continued to pleasure me with his hands.
In the secluded forest, our bodies entangled together.
It was getting dark.
Jennifer told me to go see Skylar, who hadn’t been discharged from the hospital yet.
Apparently, Skylar missed me very much.
And the truth was, I was also worried about her.
After hesitating for a while, I decided to go to the hospital.
Since I knew that Skylar was my mate, I wouldn’t be able to act normal in front of her.
I had put off visiting her not because I didn’t care about her, but because I really didn’t know how I was going to get along with her.
When I stepped into the ward with the basket of fruits I had bought on the way, I saw Skylar’s eyes light up like the sun.
“Dylan, you’re here,”she said excitedly, waving me over.
“Come here.”I put down the basket of fruits on the table nearby and walked to the bed.
“How are you?” I asked.
I could feel my ears burning in embarrassment.
Skylar pouted her lips and lowered her head dejectedly.
“I feel uncomfortable everywhere.”
“Should I call the doctor?” I asked worriedly.
“No need.” Skylar grabbed my arm and leaned towards me.
“I feel much better when I can see you.I can only recover with you by side.Dylan, can you stay here with me?”
As she approached me, my whole body stiffened.
Her soft hands wrapped around my neck and clung to me, making my heart beat fast.
I wanted to tell her that I couldn’t stay the night, but Skylar shot me such a pitiful look that I couldn’t help but swallow my words.
“Let me get you a glass of water.”
I pushed her away gently and looked for the glass in a hurry.
My heart was still racing against my chest, and I didn’t dare to look at Skylar again.
“Dylan, my chest hurts,”
Skylar whined from behind me.
Swallowing hard, I poured a glass of warm water, put it on the bedside table, and sat next to the bed, looking at Skylar with concern.
“What’s wrong? Are you sure you don’t want me to call a doctor over?”
Skylar said hurriedly, before pouting at me like a spoiled child.
“I just want you to sit here and give me company.”
I nodded, but I felt so awkward that I subconsciously fidgeted with my hands.
“Dylan, I want some water.”
Skylar blinked her eyes at me and licked her chapped lips.
My eyes lingered on her lips for a moment before I quickly turned away, picked up the glass of water and handed it to her.
Skylar said, holding my arm and looking at me expectantly.
I had no choice but to rest the rim of the glass against her lips and tilt it gently, feeding her the water bit by bit.
I patted her on the back.
As I watched the waiter trickle into her throat, my hand on her back became unconsciously gentle.
By the time Skylar finished drinking the water, her face was bright red.
As soon as I put down the empty glass, she leaned heavily into my arms.
I froze, not knowing what to do.
“Dylan, it’s so nice having you here.”
Skylar squinted up at me and smiled from ear to ear, almost as if she was drunk.
“Dylan, don’t leave me…”
Her bold and straightforward words shocked me so much that I burst into a fit of coughing.
I didn’t know whether to laugh or to cry.
How could she be so unreserved? It was like she was the opposite of me.
“Dylan, are you really Jennifer’s elder brother?”
Leaning against my chest and looking up at me, Skylar stroked my eyelids and eyebrows with her fingers, sending a shiver through me.
“To be honest, I think you two have similar features.You do look like siblings.”
“Really?” I raised my eyebrows.
“Maybe, but I don’t remember her.But whenever I see her, I get the feeling that we were close before.”
“Yes, then it must be true.” Skylar nodded vigorously.
“Your eyes and your mouth are just like Jennifer’s…”
As she spoke, her fingertips traced down the features on my face, stopping on my lips.
My heart was about to jump out of my chest.
I was just about to push Skylar when she suddenly leaned up and kissed me.
My eyes widened in surprise, and I stiffened completely.
I didn’t expect her to be so forward.
The softness of her lips reminded me that she was asking me for a kiss.
But I was so nervous that I didn’t know what to do.
A part of me thought that I should push her away, but my limbs didn’t listen; I didn’t want to ruin such a wonderful moment.
With her face so close to mine, I could smell the sweet scent of her skin, which made me feel intoxicated.
All sense of reason left me.
I buried my fingers in the back of her hair, and instinctively deepened the kiss.
But when the deft tip of her tongue touched me, it was like a bolt of electricity that shook me back to my senses, causing me to instantly pull away from the kiss and stand up.
“Skylar, don’t do that again,”
I said, panting as I stared at her red face.
It was only after taking several deep breaths that I managed to calm down.
“But Dylan, you want to be close to me too, right? You liked it.”
Skylar pouted and wrapped her arms around my waist again, trying to pull me back to her.
“I could feel your reaction.You and I are mates.We should be together.”
“No matter what, this is too fast.”
I sighed, wondering how to explain it to her in a way that she would understand.
“Skylar, I don’t want us to rush into anything casually.Give me some time, okay?”
“Fine, but stay with me tonight.You are not allowed to leave this ward,”
Skylar said firmly, sticking out her tongue at me.
Then, her tone softened.
“Dylan, you’re the best. You won’t leave me alone, will you?”
“Okay, okay, I’ll stay with you.”
With a resigned sigh, I gingerly sat on the bed.
Skylar lay down and nestled into my arms with satisfaction.
With her body so close to mine, I found it hard to even think straight for a long time.
Skylar and I talked until we both began feeling sleepy.
My eyelids grew heavier and heavier.
Without realizing, I fell asleep with Skylar in my arms.
