Amber White shrugged Sean Smith’s arms away and said indifferently, “Sean, what did you call me for?”
He sat down on the only stool in the master bedroom pointing to the huge bed, looking gloomy, “The bed smells like you. Change the sheet.”
He slept on the same bed yesterday. Wasn’t it too late to complain about her smell today?
Amber White kept the new sheet on a rather hidden place. Soon, she took a new bedding from a box above the wardrobe. She gave Sean Smith new sheet and pillowcases.
However, it took her a while to change for her hands were still on recovery.
She climbed down the bed and smoothed the wrinkles, then took the changed sheet to the bathroom of the master bedroom.
When she came out, Sean Smith was still sitting on the stool drinking water. He took a sip and it made his lips wet and shiny. He looked tempting. He sat with his legs crossed and the sass on his face was spot on.
“Sean, I’m done. You’re still in recovery. Better go to bed early.”
After she finished, she strode outside and when she walked past him, her wrist was grabbed. She looked at him subconsciously. The corner of his mouth twitched. Without a smile, he asked, “where are you going?”
“I’m going to sleep with Cindy.”
Sean Smith didn’t let go. Amber White frowned, “Sean, why don’t you let go? Do you want me to sleep with you?”
He stood up and smiled when he heard her question, “Amber, have you ever seen a couple living under the same roof slept in separate rooms?”
“Baby, of course I want you to sleep with me.”
Her eyes widened. Sean Smith was satisfied with her reaction. He dragged her inside and pushed her down on the bed.
Amber White subconsciously tried to sit up, but she was too late. His body was already above her. His chest was hard like an impenetrable wall, cramped and constrained.
She held out his plastered hands and pressed them against his chest. He narrowed his eyes and he stared at her with dribbling eyes.
“Sean, didn’t you just ask me to get rid of the bedsheet that smells like me?”
“I don’t want to bother you. Let me sleep in Cindy’s room.”
He pressed his body onto her as his arms slowly, yet tightly circled her.
“Why do you care?”
Amber White was stealthy. She had been avoiding him. Who knows if she was playing another trick?
“Inspector White, you’re an adult. I don’t think Cindy’s bed will fit two people. You’re either shameless or you’re deliberately avoiding me.”
She soon found out that her struggle was in vain. She thought it over and over aga in and finally put in a smile.
“It probably both.”
She answered seriously while smiling gently. This smile was different compared to ones she put on in the office which were formulaic and hypocritical.
It was his first time seeing she smiled like this. Her eyes were limpid and her face resembled pear blossoms.
His heart skipped a beat. He raised his brows. Amber White was trying to seduce him, wasn’t she? Was that how she usually seduced men? His eyes clouded with rage at that thought.
He pinned his big hands on her shoulder and said hatefully, “Sleep!”
He reached out his hand and turned off the light in the room leaving only a small desk lamp giving off a dim light.
The dim light, however, was dreamy. It exuded ambiguity for no reason.
Amber White was sleepy, but at this very moment, she suddenly felt uncomfortable.
“Sean, turn off the desk lamp…”
“Why?” he asked in a heavy voice.
She wet her lips, “I can’t sleep with the lights on.”
“If I turn off the light, it’s going to be dark. Who knows what you’re going to do.”
Sean Smith closed his eyes. She could feel his breath on her neck, it was steady. He seemed to be very sleepy. She took a deep breath. Anyway, it was not the first time she slept in the same bed as Sean Smith. She didn’t want to be melodramatic anymore, so she closed her eyes and tried to sleep.
Late that night, Sean Smith woke up. When he opened his eyes, a fair body appeared before him. Amber White was wearing a silk nightgown with low neckline. It didn’t completely cover her breast.
He was shocked when he found his hands on her body. When he felt her soft skin on his palm, his body stiffened. Amber White was still sleeping unsuspectingly.
The desk lamp gave off a yellow light making the room warm. Her sleeping face was as beautiful as a fallen angel.
He could feel his body tensed up. His face, however, was still grumpy like usual. He thought that Amber White was trying to seduce him while he was asleep. She probably placed his hands on her body and threw his things today to lower his guard. His eyes darkened as he closed his palm.
Amber White moaned. His stiff body tensed up all over again as he loosened his palm. Her voice was soft and drowsy. When he heard it, he was somewhat turned on.
He bit his lips. His eyes were blurry. He lost control over his own body. He lowered his head and planted a kiss on her neck.
Amber White felt the harassment. She opened her sleepy eyes, “Sean?”
She observed in silence as she looked at his handsome face in daze. Before she could react, he rained her down with kisses. He messed up her breathing.
The moment he kissed her, her mind went blank. Her nightgown was torn apart and her body was cold. He pinned her down, unbothered. His hand wandered around her body. His rough fingertips hurt her.
She suddenly recovered her sanity and tried to push him away. The quick-witted Amber White pulled the bedding to cover her nearly naked body.
Sean Smith was defenseless. His back touched the wall and his wound ached for a little while. The burning desires instantly dissipated and his eyes was once again clouded with rage.
He gritted his teeth as he gave her a look. Was she playing hard to get?
Amber White dared to seduce him and kick him right after. He couldn’t stand her double standard. She deliberately provoked him, but he was not allowed to touch her at all?
