Karl was obviously irritated by Alyssa’s tone. Although the candlelight was a bit dim, but the two were so close, she could still clearly see Karl’s face changed suddenly.
The two looked at each other for a while.
Karl took a step back and spoke first: “Because of Grace.”
Alyssa warmed up with a smile: “Grace is still young, you can find her a gentle, kind and beautiful stepmother again, anyway, you don’t like me, let me fend for myself, lest I have to go back. I’ll grab the case of Grace’s custody with you.”
Karl did not speak immediately, and the room fell silent again.
How refreshingly Alyssa just said, now she feels so nervous.
Karl suddenly blew out the candle. She couldn’t see his face in the darkness, but she could feel the low pressure emanating from him.
The next second, his voice sounded from the darkness: “Alyssa, I will give you a chance to reorganize your language.”
Alyssa clenched her fists, pursed her lips and said, “…I’m hungry.”
Failure to respond positively to Karl’s question is also a disguised display of weakness.
Karl did not speak any more, turned around and walked outside.
Alyssa hurriedly followed.
Don’t know if Karl’s eyes have night vision function. He walked in front of her as he felt her walks fast, Alyssa could only follow with one foot deep and one shallow.
When she was walking down the stairs, she almost stepped on him from behind.
As soon as she uttered her exclamation, she felt an arm stretched towards her and wrapped around her waist.
Alyssa quickly grabbed Karl’s hand and stubbornly tugged.
Karl didn’t get rid of her, so he took her downstairs.
There is an old wooden table in the room downstairs, with a candle lit on it, and a few bowls. A cat is squatting on the corner of the table. The old man is holding a piece of meat and putting it in front of the cat with a gentle smile. The cat eats meat.
When the old man saw Karl bringing Alyssa down, the smile on his face became even more gentle: “You are here, come and eat quickly.”
After Alyssa and Karl sat down, the old man asked her with a look of concern: “Has the fever gone?”
Alyssa smiled, and said warmly: “I feel better now, thank you uncle for taking me in.”
“That’s good.” The old man also smiled, and stretched out his hand to pinch a piece of meat for Alyssa: “Eat.”
Three dishes were fried, one of which seemed to be green vegetables, the other was fried potatoes with chicken slices, and the other seemed to be noodles.
Very simple home cooking.
Alyssa took a mouthful of rice and found that it was bacon.
The old man saw her eating a big mouthful, and said in a gentle voice: “Is the girl used to eating? We don’t have anything else in the country, just these vegetables and bacon, you will just take it.”
Alyssa nodded: “It’s delicious.”
This uncle’s willingness to take them in is already the greatest kindness, and he also entertained them for a meal. Naturally, he is not in a hurry to be grateful, and he will be picky.
Alyssa was able to adapt, so she turned to look at Karl.
Karl ate the meal calmly, just like when he ate at home.
She was a little surprised, Mr. Adams, who is usually very picky, could adapt to it unexpectedly.
When the elderly eat, they love small talk.
Alyssa chatted with him from time to time, and also knew the basic situation of the old man.
His wife died more than ten years ago, and all the children in the family went to the city. He has always lived alone in the mountains.
After eating, Alyssa would go to wash the dishes, and the old man would not let her wash.
Alyssa couldn’t, and pushed Karl who was aside: “You go and wash.”
She and Karl had a quarrel before, thinking that Karl would not care about her, but she did not expect that he actually went to the kitchen to wash the dishes.
When the old man saw Karl go to wash the dishes, he did not stop him.
When Karl went to the kitchen, the old man said to Alyssa with a smile on his face: “Your relationship is really good, just like me and my wife back then.”
Alyssa was taken aback for a moment, and said, “…really?”
don’t know how this uncle could tell that she and Karl have a good relationship.
When the old man finished speaking, he just looked at her with a smile, and stopped talking, and started to tease the cat again.
Alyssa got up and went to the kitchen.
The kitchen in the country is also very simple, because it burns wood for cooking, there is dust on the floor of the kitchen, and dust on the beams.
Alyssa was a little surprised when she saw it, but she didn’t expect that Karl could still stand calmly in front of the stove to wash the dishes, which made her almost doubt whether Karl had been replaced.
After all, he was a wealthy man who grew up in an aristocratic ambiance. She used to invite him to dinner, and if the restaurant she went to was a little ordinary, it would feel like he was wronged.
Alyssa walked to his side and said, “I’ll wash it.”
“Stand further.” Karl said, but the movements in his hand did not stop.
He was holding the rag and wiping the bowls one by one very patiently. There was no trace of reluctance or disgust in his expression, just like how he usually handles work.
Alyssa stood aside, watching Karl wash the dishes patiently, wipe them clean and put them back.
After he put the last bowl back, he walked up to Alyssa, reached out his hand and touched her forehead, then touched his own, then frowned slightly.
Still a bit hot.
Taking the temperature of the forehead is actually a very int!mate act.
For a moment, Alyssa felt that the former Karl had returned.
Karl tested her forehead and body temperature, then took a half bowl of cold water and put it aside, and said in a low voice, “You will bring it up by yourself later, and will put on a cold towel in the evening.”
There was no concern in his tone, but Alyssa was already content.
She nodded: “Yeah.”
After a simple wash, Alyssa carried the half basin of water upstairs, used the towel he had applied before, and then laid it on the forehead again.
She closed her eyes and thought about things.
The uncle doesn’t have many rooms at home. Karl will either sleep with her or go to sleep with the uncle tonight.
She felt that Karl might be more willing to sleep with her.
Thinking about this, she fell asleep in a daze.
Don’t know how long it took, Alyssa felt that someone was taking the towel on her forehead, and when she opened her eyes, she saw Karl sitting by the bed taking away the towel on her forehead, turning around to soak in the basin. Wring out the water, take it, fold it, and put it on her forehead.
Only then did Alyssa realize that the room was very bright, followed the light source and found that it was the mobile phone flashlight turned on by Karl.
Although the mobile phone can’t make calls, it can still illuminate.
She tilted her head, Karl couldn’t put the towel on, and murmured, “Don’t move.”
Alyssa quickly lay flat so that Karl could put a towel on her.
Karl put a towel on and went to get his mobile phone.
Alyssa asked him, “What time is it? Where did you go?”
“At ten o’clock, I went out and went around.”
Karl answered her question abruptly, never saying a word.
Alyssa asked again: “What are you going to do next?”
Karl tapped a few times on the phone, probably testing the phone signal.
After a while, he put the phone aside, looked at Alyssa, and said blankly, “Lie in.”
Hearing this, Alyssa moved inside very obediently, and lay directly on the wall.
The bed is not very big, it doesn’t even seem to be 1.5 meters.
Karl slept with her, she had to press against the wall.
Karl turned off the phone’s flashlight and lay down beside Alyssa.
As soon as he lay down, the already narrow bed became crowded.
She was leaning against the wall on one side and Karl on the other, and she could feel his body temperature and breath.
Alyssa grasped the corner of the quilt nervously, not daring to move.
The night in the mountains was very quiet, and Karl’s breathing was clearly audible.
Suddenly, Karl called her out: “Alyssa.”
“Huh?” Alyssa said, only to realize that her voice was a little hoarse.
After that, Karl said two words in a low-pitched voice: “quilt.”
Only then did Alyssa realize that she pulled the quilt in front of her by herself, and hurriedly pushed the quilt to Karl’s side.
The two were lying on a bed, sharing a quilt, no pillows, and smelling the damp smell of rotting wood.
Alyssa may have slept too long before, so she can’t fall asleep right now.
She opened her eyes in the dark, feeling Karl’s breathing calmed down, thinking that he was finally asleep, she turned her side slightly and reached out to help Karl’s bedding.
“Alyssa, although I am not interested in you now, I am a normal man. If you move around, I can’t guarantee that I will be hungry or not.”
Karl’s voice rang suddenly, his voice so clear that no sleepiness could be heard.
Alyssa was stiff for a moment.
She calmed her mind and said with a mocking tone: “If you don’t say Mr. Adams, I almost forgot that you are a normal man.”
Alyssa sneered and turned her back to Karl.
Not angry, not angry.
Karl is now a patient.
Don’t care about patients.
Psychological cues worked, Alyssa’s mood quickly returned to calm, and soon fell asleep.
In the middle of the night, she was awakened by the heat.
The towel on her forehead has slipped off and is almost dry.
The quilt, which was not big, was wrapped up by her alone. She pulled the quilt to Karl’s side and covered him.
This time, Karl didn’t say anything again.
It seems to be really asleep.
This is, Karl turned over and faced Alyssa, which was just convenient for Alyssa to cover him.
Night in the mountains was very cold. If Karl didn’t cover the quilt, he might have a fever tomorrow morning.
Alyssa also leaned on her side, lying face to face with him in the dark. Although she couldn’t see her face clearly, she could feel his warm breathing.
The bed was small and the quilt was small. Karl’s warm breath was right in front of him. Alyssa hadn’t been so close to him for a long time, and her sleepiness disappeared little by little.
Just when she was about to turn over and turn her back to Karl, he suddenly stretched out his hand to wrap her waist, and then he wrapped his hands and feet around her, firmly hooping her in his arms.
Alyssa was stiff for a moment.
She was held in arms by Karl, and she dared not move.
It took a few minutes before she tentatively said, “Karl?”
What responded to her was Karl’s steady breathing.
This is his initiative to hug her, you can’t rely on her…
Lying in a warm and familiar embrace, she felt very at ease, and her sleepiness just came up.
The next day.
When Alyssa woke up, it was already bright.
However, the sound of rain outside indicates that the weather has not improved.
Karl was still holding his arm around her from the night. She felt that he was hugging too tightly, and it was a little difficult to breathe at this moment.
She stretched out her hand extremely lightly, trying to remove the hand that Karl placed on her waist.
However, her hand caught his wrist, and the person in front suddenly opened his eyes.
Alyssa was worried about waking him up, so she kept paying attention to Karl.
Seeing him suddenly open his eyes, Alyssa immediately let go of her hand like a guilty conscience, and stared at him motionlessly.
Karl didn’t move, but moved the arm on her waist, frowned and asked, “What’s the matter?”
“You last night…” In Karl’s suspicious eyes, Alyssa said blankly, “Anyway, it was your hand that moved first.”
Karl withdrew his arm, his voice was hoarse in the morning: “I slept deeply last night, how do you like to say it.”
In this tone, does he not admit that he did it first last night?
Well, when he did it last night, he did not wake up, and it is normal not to remember.
Alyssa didn’t care about him, got up and planned to step over him and get out of bed.
However, she just stepped forward and fell unsteadily.
Seeing that he was about to fall into the bed, Karl reached out and pinched her waist, causing her to fall on top of him.
She obviously didn’t do anything, but she felt like she was beaten in the face inexplicably.
She threw herself on Karl, leaning on her body and asking him, “If I say…I was not careful, do you believe it?”
There was no extra expression on Karl’s handsome face, and he said coldly, “Do you think I can believe it?”
Alyssa shook her head.
Karl stared at her for two seconds, then suddenly laughed.
Alyssa asked in a low voice, “What are you laughing at…”
Karl pushed her aside, sat up, and slowly sorted out her clothes, before looking back at her leisurely: “Such a clichéd trick is better used less, in case I just Did not hold you…”
In the latter words, he knew what Alyssa was even without talking about Alyssa.
Although she knew very well in her heart that she just didn’t stand firm, but she felt unable to refute it.
Alyssa lay on the bed, pulled the quilt over her head, and silently covered herself.
Feeling the man next to her got up and got out of bed, Alyssa pulled the quilt down and revealed a head: “Even if you do it again, you will still hold me back. The trick is not too old-fashioned, just useful.”
Karl was putting on shoes, and when he heard her voice, he turned his head back, his eyes sharp.
Alyssa looked at him without showing any weakness.
Karl squinted his eyes, suddenly leaned over, and got close to Alyssa.
Is it because she said too much and Karl wanted to fix her?
Alyssa closed her eyes in fright in a senseless sense.
The next moment, Karl’s mocking voice came over her head: “With this ability, you dare to yell at me?”
