When Erica found out Matthew's secret, he flipped out on her. He was so desperate to keep it a secret that he lost all sense of reason.

To Erica's intense surprise, the woman in the photo was none other than herself.

She didn't know what Matthew was angry about. She approached him and asked defiantly, "And what if I don't give it to you?"

His hand tightened around her wrist. The pain made her grit her teeth, but she refused to budge. Fortunately, it was not that painful, and she could ignore the pain.

The man acted like a three-year-old child and answered willfully, "Give it here! Now!"

He was like a broken record, repeating that phrase over and over again. He wouldn't say anything else.

Erica reached out her other hand to touch his cheek, and talked to him in a quiet voice. "Matthew, Phoebe was never the goddess in your heart. You never liked her. She's just your best friend's wife. I'm the woman you loved from the start. There's nothing between you and Phoebe, and I can prove it. You don't know how long you've been in love with me or when you started to fall for me, do you?"

After she came back from the Panda House that day, she remembered what he said, what his feelings were. He revealed all that in the car.

When he heard what she said, Matthew's jaw tightened. What she said was the truth.

"But I had another man's child. When your dad asked you to marry me, you turned him down. I can think of two reasons for that. One is that you don't like others getting involved in your business, and the other is that you didn't want to marry a woman with someone else's kid. In the end, you said yes because you like me. That love won out over a kid out of wedlock..."

"Erica!" His sharp cry stopped her from saying anything more.

Matthew's face was pale, but there was no anger in his eyes, but shyness instead.

"Matthew." Erica hugged him and said, "I know you don't like to talk about your feelings, so let me do it. It would be great if I could marry you now. After all, I'm a few years older now, than when we were married. I'd have a different view of things from that time. Maybe I would know you liked me earlier. But on second thought, I'm glad that we got married years ago. I don't regr

saying goes, the winner will be the one who laughs last, ' Erica thought to herself with a wicked grin. He didn't even notice.

Because of the sudden arrival of Erica's aunt Flo, Matthew not only had to give up on the idea of bathing together, but also had to handle her carefully.

The next day, because of the cramping Erica stayed at home all day to beautify Dylan's photos. She never left the house.

In the evening, Matthew picked up the four kids from the manor. Seeing that Erica was still in bed, Damian immediately knew what was wrong with her. "Mom, is it time for you to drink brown sugar water this month?"

But they only knew their mom needed to drink brown sugar water for a few days every month and couldn't take care of herself. They knew nothing else.

"Yes." Erica nodded listlessly. Her lower abdomen always hurt on the first day of her period.

Without saying a word, Damian and Adkins turned around and walked out of the bedroom. Colman kicked off his shoes and climbed onto the bed. Lying next to her, he patted her on the shoulder and comforted her gently, "Mom, it shouldn't hurt. Let me keep your belly warm."

Then he blew on her belly.

Erica was amused by his sweet behavior. She gently pinched the tip of his nose.

Boswell told the man who came in later, "Dad, you can sleep in my room tonight."

'Huh!' With a faint smile on his face, Matthew thought to himself, 'He allows me to sleep in a room I own. Like he has any say! What a little brat!"
