Rachel Ruan went to the closet to get a bed sheet and put it on the couch. Someone had to sleep on the couch that night.

"Why don't you go take a shower? Since I'm sick, I'll sleep on the bed while you sleep on the sofa tonight, " Rachel said to Hiram, who gave her a strange look in response.

She hadn't slept well the night before, so she was determined to sleep on the bed that night.

Hiram's brooding eyes darted around. Then, he went to the bathroom and called out, "Change your nightdress before I come out."

Frowning, she looked down at her loose-fitting and comfortable silk nightdress. It was only then that she saw the little white panties that she was wearing that day inside the nightdress.


What was happening?

Why was her nightdress see-through?

No wonder Hiram had been looking at her so strangely.

The idea of a man seeing her almost naked not only embarrassed her, but also made her feel angry.

This nightdress had been given to her by her new mother-in-law, which meant that her mother-in-law wanted her...

Rachel ran to the closet to find something else to put on. It was only a few minutes ago that she had been thinking about how she'd gotten such a wonderful mother-in-law!

It suddenly occurred to her that the three people in this mansion were all very, very sophisticated.

How could Joanna make her wear a see-through nightdress to seduce her son! Where had this idea come from!

In another part of the house, Gavin came back to his bedroom. He found Joanna sitting in front of the dressing table and using her skin care products. She seemed to be in a good mood.

"Joanna, you look so happy. Is it because of our daughter-in-law?"

Still caressing her face, Joanna glanced at her husband and said, "Although Rachel seems pure and unsophisticated, she's quite considerate. I think she's a good match for our son."

"Oh, you really think so? What about Lydia? Didn't you always think that she's the best daughter-in-law for our family?" Gavin asked, lying on their cozy bed.

"Lydia is a good girl, but I've always thought of her as a back-up. If Rachel is not suitable for our son, or Hiram is too demanding to find others attractive, we need to have a back-up in order to continue the family line.", Joanna explained, taking out her hand cream to apply onto her hands before turning to her husband.

"Besides, the problem is Hiram's attitude toward Lydia. You know that!"

Gavin rested his head

ly unaware that her words were fueling Hiram's anger.

Deep down, Rachel was a traditional woman. She'd dated people before but their relationships always ended before there was any intimacy. She was still a virgin and she couldn't afford to spend her first night with this man, whose marriage with her would only last for a month.

It just wasn't worth it.

It didn't mean that she wanted to remain a virgin until marriage. But if she was going to lose her virginity, she wanted it to at least be with someone she loved and could enjoy it with.

"Explain? Why don't you give me an explanation!" Hiram said as he turned off the switch. Rachel began rising from the bed but Hiram caught her firmly in his arms.

He leaned forward, but before his lips could touch hers, he found them covered by a small hand.

"All right, all right, I'll sleep on the bed. I'm not going anywhere. Can you forgive me? Don't be mad at me, please." She was trying to coax him into a compromise. It seemed like Hiram was a hundred percent serious. The thought terrified Rachel so much she could almost feel her heart jump out of her chest.

Hiram furrowed his eyebrows. He realized he'd allowed himself to lose control. For his plan to work, he couldn't afford to have any kind of intimacy with this woman.

She wasn't just a normal woman, she was Simpson Ruan's daughter. Touching her would cause a lot of trouble. And it would become much more difficult for him to get rid of that annoying centennial engagement!

Feeling the strong arms around her loosen up, Rachel breathed a sigh of great relief. She turned around and finally drifted off to sleep.
