As Cassie caressed her fingers on his body's features, Nick froze. He was so nervous that he even held his breath, allowing her to touch his face. She was drunk, but with every touch, his heart skipped a beat.

It caused an electric feeling to rush over his entire body, leaving him unable to move. He had never felt this way before.

As she continued touching him, Nick noticed that Cassie didn't want to stop. Her finger slid down his neck, and then met his sturdy chest.

When she slid her hand down even further, Nick grasped her hand tightly.

"Stop!" Nick growled as he felt like he was about to lose control. He kept breathing faster and faster.

Suddenly, Cassie snapped out of the moment.

Rolling her eyes upward, she stared at Nick confusedly. 'Wait...Why did he stop me?' she wondered.

Meeting her innocent gaze, Nick acknowledged his strong desire towards her, which ran through his entire body. He was flustered, scared and thirsty for what she had to offer.

He didn't want to stop her. Staring at her luscious pink cheeks, he wanted to kiss both of them, and then her lips. Her scent lingered on his body, making him want her even more.

However, his cognitive senses stopped him and suggested, 'If you have sex with her now, you are a bad person. You'll definitely be no better than that man in the booth who was trying to take advantage of her.'

Given that he had respect for women, Nick placed her hand back on the bed gently.

Meeting Cassie's bewildered eyes, he took a deep breath, cleared his throat and said, "It's getting late. Goodnight. I will sleep in the living room and you can call me if you need anything."

Without waiting for her response, Nick quickly made his way out of the bedroom.

Once he was out of the bedroom, he ran to the kitchen table, poured himself a glass of cold water and downed it in one gulp.

He still felt very uneasy. The cold water faile

, and her mind was a mess.

This question kept bothering her, leaving her unable to fall asleep.

A few moments later, she heard Nick go to the kitchen to drink some water and yet again, run to the bathroom to take a bath. At the sound of the water reached her ears, her heart palpitated fast. She was no longer a teenage girl. She was a respected nurse. She knew why Nick had to take yet another shower and bath.

'Well, obviously he fell for me and even wanted to have sex with me...'

The thought delighted her. 'At least he has some feelings for me.

He is a true gentleman, which is fairly difficult to come by nowadays. I'm sure it must've also been difficult for him to break one of his rules, especially to take advantage of a drunk girl.'

Cassie giggled silently. Suddenly, she was in a good mood. At that moment, she had an impulse to rush into the living room and display her affection towards Nick. However, it was just a thought in her mind. Her mind shifted quickly.

'He must feel upset after what he saw in the booth. I can't confess my love to him at this point. What if he turns me down?

I should take it slow. I still have a lot of time to get closer to him, ' she comforted herself.

As her apprehension disappeared, she fell fast asleep.
