"You can have the rest. I'm going upstairs to take a bath." After swallowing the noodles, Duke stood up and left the dining room in a rush. He strode towards the bathroom on the second floor. Belinda relaxed a little, wondering why Duke left in such a hurry.

Duke entered the bathroom. Instead of turning on the water, he leaned against the wall, taking deep breaths to calm himself down. He pressed his hand over his chest, feeling the fast pounding of his heart. He closed his eyes in deep contemplation.

Just now, he felt a sudden compulsion to tell Belinda that he had fallen deeply in love with her and that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. But the idea that she might dismiss his confession was torture to him. Before he could blurt it out, he left the dining room in a hurry. He was afraid that he would act impulsively.

Belinda didn't even say a single word about Rachel to Duke because she didn't think it was necessary. It was all wishful thinking on Rachel's part and it had nothing to do with Duke. It would be unfair to Duke if Belinda took out her anger on him. Although Belinda was a little upset about Duke and Rachel's past, she knew that everyone had a history. She just had to get over it. She was sophisticated enough to take things in stride.

Belinda ate the noodles in the bowl with determination. Although she was already full, she was reluctant to throw the leftovers away. Duke lovingly cooked the noodles for her. She didn't want to waste anything.

When she went upstairs after she was done, Duke was still in the bathroom. Belinda walked around the room in an attempt to digest the noodles faster. She ate too much and there was an uncomfortable feeling in her stomach. She fell into a trance as she walked, thinking about her relationship with Duke. The sudden happiness she felt took her by surprise. It was easy to satisfy Belinda. A bowl of noodles made by Duke was enough to make her happy.

"What are you doing?" Duke walked out of the bathroom with a bath towel wrapped around his waist. He looked at Belinda in confusion.

"Nothing! You're done with your bath?" Belinda was used to seeing Duke's half-naked body everyday. But every time she saw his firm body, her face flushed shyly and her heartbeat would quicken. She looked away awkwardly.

"Yes. I have some work to finish. I'm going to the study now. Give me your business documents, so I can go through them." Duke had been helping Belinda review the business documents of her company recently and had grown accustomed to the habi

ious. I'm going to the study now." Duke was pleased with her answer. He smiled in satisfaction and went to the study.

"Duke is really an odd person." Belinda pursed her lips, grumbling to herself. Though she was suspicious of Duke's actions, she wasn't a person who liked to get to the bottom of things. She shrugged it off and went to the bathroom. Duke's clothes were scattered around the floor. She picked them up and put them in the basket for dirty clothes. She was so full at this moment that she didn't want to take a bath right away. She decided to organize the wardrobe.

Duke liked to wear simple clothes of dark colors. His clothes were neither as fancy as Rain's nor as bright as Edward's. As a result, his closet looked rather dull. His profession had an important influence in the formation of his character and temperament.

Belinda had always been a messy person. Everything in her room used to be in a muddle. Her mother always criticized her for being scatterbrained and absentminded, but she was unable to give up her bad habit. But after she moved into Duke's house, she changed her habits easily. Duke liked tidiness, so Belinda cleaned the house every day.

After taking a bath, Belinda went to the study to invite Duke to go to bed with her. She already knew what she wanted and she made up her mind to pursue her happiness. The soft moonlight flittered through the windows and the couple got intoxicated by the romantic atmosphere. Belinda's heart began to race while Duke walked slowly towards her. Her blood was pumping through her body as Duke gazed deeply into her eyes. He stood in front of her and tugged on her robe. "Let's take this off, shall we?" he murmured.
