"... Terence, you're too heavy! Get the hell off me!"

Carla cried out loud. She kicked aimlessly, trying to free herself from Terence's control.

Looking at the woman under him who was struggling hard, Terence frowned and gave her a bitter smile. All he did was grab her lightly on the shoulders. He barely had to use his strength. "You, my lady, are no fun at all. It's no wonder why no man has ever fallen for you."

Women would usually be shy at such a moment. That would be if they had any affection for the man at all. Yet this woman, who Terence was sure did not have a crush on him but at least liked him in some ways, was acting very differently.

Hearing Terence's antics, Carla glared at him. Terence continued to taunt her and before he could realize anything, Carla kicked him on the belly.

"Ouch!"

The intense pain forced Terence to get off Carla. He lay on the bed with his back facing the ceiling. 'That was quite a kick, ' he thought.

In a flash, he seized Carla. She tried to escape but he was faster. He turned her around roughly and held her tight in his arms. Carla could barely breathe with her face buried in Terence's shoulder. He was too strong.

"Carla, you may as well be careful next time. What if you kicked me on the wrong part and ruined my manhood? That would be bad news for you."

Terence cornered Carla with his strong legs to stop her from struggling. He then pinched her chin to make her look at him in the eyes.

"Bah! I couldn't care less about it! Whether your manhood is ruined or not is none of my concern and it certainly won't be. I shall leave that problem to your future wife to worry about." Carla glimpsed at the pair of long legs around her body and sneered.

"Women always conceal what they really think. Stubborn."

Terence grinned at Carla, his head resting on his palm. Then, he fondled her hair.

"Anyway, I won't leave for now. I promised to teach Sean how to play basketball, remember? Besides, I..." Terrence leaned in closer, leaving no space between Carla and him.

"Sis? Terence?"

While Terence was whispering in Carla's ear, someone happened to break in.

The door opened, revealing Sean standing outside with his hand still on the doorknob.

Sean was about to step in when he saw Terence and Carla clinging to each other. He blushed immediately and looked away.

"Terence, can you help me with my homework? There's one problem I can't figure out..." Sean awkwardly said.

Carla had already jumped from the bed as fast as she could. She straightened her clothes first and then rolled up the sleeves to clear the leftover on h

ound, "Can't you feel that you're burning up? Just call my name if you need anything. I'm right outside in the living room. Why bother yourself?"

Carla replied a soft groan. Her vision was blurred, but she could still recognize the man who was taking care of her.

She wasn't used to this, but somehow, she felt warm and cozy.

Before she met Terence, she didn't have anyone to turn to whenever she was sick. Naturally, she got used to taking care of herself. Every single time, she would fetch the water by herself and would go to the hospital on her own. But at that moment, she found it really great to have someone beside her.

"Terence...

Terence..."

Carla repeated his name.

"I'm here. I'm here," Terence tried to reassure her. As soon as he finished cleaning and covering her wound, he stood up and sat beside Carla. "Lift your head a little. Let me put the pillow right. That's it. Now wait a moment. I'm going to get you some pills. Then you can go back to sleep."

"Terence... I know nothing about you except for your name..."

Carla lifted her head on Terence's urging. All the while, she looked at him with her blurry eyes. She had never asked about his life because during their first encounter, she had thought that they would be no more than casual acquaintances.

When it was clear that Terence was staying for quite some time, she had tried to ask him but couldn't find a way to start the topic. She always hoped that he would tell her without being asked.

Now, she was eager to know more about him.

It was true that she didn't know anything about this man, except for his name.

Terence was in the middle of pulling up the quilt to Carla's neck. When he heard what Carla said, he suddenly stopped.
