Lillian and Felix stood at the door, hugging each other. None of them spoke a word. She didn't want to face reality yet, so she remained silent. She didn't want to break the peace and warmth that she was feeling right now.

But Felix didn't feel the same way. He was bidding her farewell deep inside. His eyes were icy but she couldn't see them as they were standing in the darkness.

"You're finally here! I've been waiting for you so long! I did what you asked me to do, but just as I was about to do it, I was caught. I'm so scared. What are we going to do, Felix?"

She coughed and sobbed as she tried to desperately cling on to Felix for help. To her, no one else could save her. She leaned her head against his chest.

"Don't worry. I'm just here. I just finished an operation. That's why I was so late. Don't cry anymore. I know you went through a lot. It's okay. It's going to be okay. Don't worry. We're going to survive this. I'll figure out a way."

Felix chose his words carefully. If Lillian wasn't hysterical, she must have noticed that something was different with Felix. But she was too busy breaking down to notice anything.

He pulled her arm off as he didn't want to stand by the doorway anymore. He then turned around to lock the door close.

Lillian realized that it was dark so she scrambled for the switch but just as she was about to flick the lights open, Felix stopped her.

"Don't turn on the lights. You just cried so your eyes might still be extra sensitive."

Felix didn't want Lillian to turn the lights on because he needed the darkness to do what he needed to do so he made up some excuse to keep the lights off.

Lillian wasn't suspicious at all. She just

r ear.

To Lillian, Felix was the only person she could trust right now so she didn't notice at all that Felix was acting a bit strange that night.

Felix touched his lips to Lillian's and said, "Why don't you rest first? You must be freaked out. I'll go get water for you."

"Okay, don't trip! Why don't you turn on the lights so you can see where you're going?"

Felix had successfully tricked Lillian into trusting him.

"It's okay. I know this place. Don't worry about me, okay? Just stay there and wait for me,"

Felix said in a gentle tone. When he spoke, he tenderly fixed his gaze at her.

"Okay. Just be careful." Lillian let go of Felix's hand reluctantly, her eyes filled with affection.

"Okay, sweetie." Felix lightly kissed her on the forehead before heading to the kitchen.

When he arrived at the kitchen, he pulled out the bag of drugs from his pocket. He was sweating. He looked around the kitchen every now and then to make sure Lillian hadn't followed him. Fortunately, she seemed to be lost in thought. She sat on the sofa seemingly in a daze. She had no idea what Felix was doing in the kitchen.
