Chapter 4 - Predestined Marriage

The black car stopped in front of Edison's villa.

Summer was about to unfasten the seat belt. Leonard, next to her, leaned over. With his slender and beautiful fingers, he pressed lightly on the dark buckle of the seat belt. The seat belt was immediately released with a slight snap.

His face was handsome and compelling and was getting closer to her. As they faced each other, Summer s mind settled and was as still as water. She couldrểt help but blush when she looked at his face, and there was a trace of confusion in her glassy eyes.

This man's face is pretty enough to attract any woman he wants.

But then Summer remembered what he had done yesterday, and her look returned to normal.

He's nothing but a rich and nasty young kid who covets his sister-in-law, like a spoiled child who wants what he can't get.

She lifted her head and adjusted her glasses. Her face showed little emotion and she said, "In getting off."

Leonardo narrowed his eyes, there was a look of anger in his eyes.

Summer was keenly aware of this change and tried to get out of the car. As she was opening the door though, an arm caught her hand and grabbed her.

He was strong, with his long arms across her. Looking from the outside, it almost seemed like he was holding her in an embrace.

Through her glasses, he looked straight at her which were as clear as water, and said deliberately, 'l took you home, don I deserve a 'thank you ?”

She lowered her head, flinching a little, and whispered, "Thank you."

People in the Edison family usually left her alone if she acted so demur. She hoped “Douglas” would feel the same and just back off.

Leonardo looked at her slightly closed pink lips and his face got darker. He said softly, '!t sẳeems your appreciation ¡s insincere. I guess I have to take that thanks: myself.”

With the thought, he leaned over and kissed her lips.

As he was kissing her, he thought, she's my legitimate wife, why should I hide my desire to kiss her?

She stared at the enlarged face in front of her eyes, reaching out to push him away, only to find that her hands had been clasped tightly.

Leonardo was very satisfied with her reaction. He reached out a hand and took off her glasses to reveal her clear and bright eyes.

This looks much better.

Summers cheeks were red with heat. This man was too presumptuous to dare treat her this way at the door of her families' house!

When the kiss ended, he left her lips but still wanted more.

That was great, I should try that again once there's a chance, he thought.

After coming back to his sense, he said in a commanding voice, "Don't wear gÌasses anymore. Otherwise, I will kiss you every time I see you."

He deliberately lowered the volume of his voice to make his point. His eyes were checking over her entire body unscrupulously.

He was like some kind of ferocious beast marking his territory and sizing up his prey.

Before Summer could call him out on this, a female voice broke the silence in the car.


Summer heard the words and turned her head to look out of the half-open car window.

Karen's eyes widened in shock, half surprised and half angry, "What are you doing here?"

Summer clasped her hands tightly, a flash of confusion flashed in her eyes.

On the first day of her marriage, a strange man hitting on her, in front of her house.... it was hard to defend.

Despite all that was happening, Karen also had to maintain her dignity. When she looked around and saw Summer she said, "Come here."

Summer pulled the door open and got out of the car quickly.

As soon as she got out of the car, Karen pulled her into the villa.

Unexpectedly, Leonard leaned his head out of the car window, and sinfully rubbed his lips with his fingers, saying casually, "My sister in law, l Will wait for you to come back."
