"What happened? Cassie?" Nick couldn't help but ask her. He reminded himself to be patient with her. However, as a handsome young man in his twenties, it was hard for him to hold back, especially when the woman he loved was lying naked beside him. In his attempt to try and ease her mind, Nick held her in his arms and touched her all over, but Cassie pushed him away once more.

"Oh, Cassie, my darling! Please, hug me and relax in my arms. I've honestly missed you so much!" he murmured while grabbing her hand passionately, leading it all the way down there. "Can you feel it? It's missing you too!"

At that moment, Cassie's face turned blood-red. Suddenly her hand was sweaty, and she felt that it was so hot that she wasn't even able to breathe anymore.

'Where did this man learn to say such a thing? It's so embarrassing! Stop it!' she shouted in her head.

The next second, her heart sunk. She had a feeling that Nick had changed a lot over the past few days, which had her worried. He was no longer the young, innocent man she knew before, especially in bed. She wondered where he gained all of his experience from.

The more Cassie thought about the situation, the more upset she was. Once she grew suspicious, she couldn't help but let her mind wander. In fact, soon the ideas in her head would occupy her entire heart, and thus, Cassie was unable to even be close to Nick.

"I'd better go home now," she said firmly without thinking about her decision twice. Her face was as cold as an iceberg, and her body, stiff.

"No, wait! Not now!" Nick objected. He hurriedly took her hand and pressed it against his heart.

Cassie was shocked by the aggression in his voice. It made her want to get away from him as soon as possible.

"No, Nick. I'm serious!"

her voice grew colder.

At that moment, Nick was very confused. Since Cassie agreed to come to his place after dinner, he thought that she wanted to have sex with him. However, now he was placed in the middle, unable to advance or retreat. He could tell that she meant what she'd said, but had no clue as to why.

In the beginning of the evening, everything seemed quite fine. As the saying went, "A woman's heart is a deep ocean of secrets." Nick really didn't understand Cassie. He wondered whether all women changed their minds, just like they were turning a page in a book.

Thinking about her words and reaction, he felt forced to let her go. Nick was not the kind of man who would force Cassie to do what she didn't want to. He then stepped away from her.

The moment she could, Cassie got up immediately. She stood there, naked and lo

, thinking about how she felt. However, her feelings were complicated.

It was getting late, and she began to worry about Nick. He really needed to sleep, because he had to get up early the next morning for work.

Cassie stared at the car and hoped that it would drive away within the next few seconds. Staring at it, she became more and more anxious.

She gripped her phone tightly and finally got up the nerve to call him. She wanted to figure out why he was so skilled at stripping her clothes off and whether he had practiced it many times with other women before. If he was in a new relationship, then why did he return to her again, and if he wasn't, why would he have sex with other women?

Her only logical thought was that Nick might have had sex with other women, which was driving her crazy. She admitted to herself that she was indeed jealous, but didn't know how to deal with it. She didn't allow herself to confront him right in his face, and also couldn't stand finding out his answer. She loved him and wanted to spend the rest of her life with him.

Cassie now realized that she was the one at fault. She felt like a coward, especially when it came to dealing with her relationship with Nick. It was her hesitation that forced her to face this situation. She should've been braver.

However, she dared not to face Nick's betrayal. If he admitted cheating on her, what should she have done? Break up with him? No, absolutely not! Pretending that nothing had happened? No, she couldn't.

The young lady was too young to think it through now, hence why she spent a sleepless night alone.

In the car, Nick was also unable to fall asleep. It didn't matter if he drove back home later that night, he'd still be awake regardless.
