Terence almost choked on the beverage he was drinking when he saw Carla staring at him. He furrowed his eyebrows.

"Carla, are you annoyed because you like me but I don't reciprocate your love? That's why you speak ill of men."

Carla took a big gulp of her beverage and rolled her eyes. "Come on. Don't flatter yourself, Terence. Do you really think that I like you?

You just overestimate your charm! Even if Evan is a scumbag, at least he hasn't hurt me."

Then, Carla threw the empty cup at Terence's arm, put on her raincoat and went out into the rain.

Terence flinched, not because of the cup that she threw at him, but because of her reaction. The smile on his face faded as he watched her leave on her electric scooter.

That evening, Carla was so exhausted. She collapsed onto the bed and even though her stomach rumbled in protest because she was starving, she didn't have the energy to move.

Moments later, Terence walked into the room with a tray of food. He placed the tray on the table in front of her.

"Dinner is served! I have warmed everything up. Please, have some while it's still hot."

Carla lay on her side and looked at him and then at the food. The delicious aroma of the food made her mouth water. They were all her favorite dishes, especially stir-fried vegetables.

Her empty stomach had made the decision for her. She crawled out of the bed and went to the table to pick up the chopsticks. When she had a taste of the food, she began wolfing it down quickly.

"Hey, slow down! Nobody is going to steal your food. It's all yours. Just slow down or you'll choke."

Terence reminded her with a gentle voice and handed her a glass of water.

Carla swallowed a large clump of rice and took the glass from him to wash it down. "You don't know how hungry I was after delivering so many take-outs. Especially at meal time, I almost drooled all over the food."

The mealtime was the busiest time for food deliveries. She didn't usually have time to eat her lunch until the mealtime rush hour was over and by then she wasn't hungry anymore.

"Actually, you won't have to work as hard anymore and be so tired." While speaking, Terence took out an envelope from his pocket and placed it in front of her.

"What's this?"

Carla put her chopsticks down and too

Terence had spoken it outright making it embarrassing. So she reached up and pinched him on the cheek.

"You are right! Ever since you have been with us, Sean and I have been eating much better than before. So, if you are not in a rush, could you wait until after his birthday to leave?"

'If he really wants to go, I have no way to keep him here. He can just walk away.

But Sean likes him so much, and it would mean a lot to him if Terence was there for his birthday.'

"Ouch! Be gentle, woman!" Terence frowned as he pulled her hand away. He glanced at her in thought and asked, "You want me to stay just for Sean's birthday and nothing else?"

Carla bit her lip and looked him straight in the eyes. "Something else, yes. You mentioned it earlier.

You said, that you'll take care of Sean and me in the future. Do you remember?"

Terence's eyes glistened. "Of course I do."

"All right. I have your word. If I run into any difficulty, I will come and find you. Let's be clear. You have promised me. Don't ever try to deny it when I come to you,"

said Carla with tears in her eyes. Nobody could foresee the future. If she needed his help she would definitely think of turning to him

for it.

"I'll keep my promise," Terence said as he looked deeply into her eyes.

Carla felt uncomfortable under his stare and seeing the leftover food on the table, she started to clean up.

But, she was stopped by a firm hand.

Terence grabbed her and pushed her back onto the bed, leaving her unmovable beneath him.
