Malcolm deliberately shone the light in Poppi's face, and she couldn't see his expression. "I was afraid that I wouldn't get the stock after your death," he said.

Poppi raised her hand to shield her eyes from the harsh light. Her blood froze in her veins when she heard what he said.

"Why are you just sitting there? Do you want to stay here all night?" It began to rain harder. Malcolm raised an eyebrow and continued. "Or are you waiting for Benson and Hugh to save you?"

"My foot hurts, you dimwit!" Poppi couldn't help losing her temper! "Okay, okay, I'll just stand up. No need to yell at me! You are unbelievable!"

"You..." Malcolm paused, and frowned more tightly. Poppi's temper was getting worse than before, and she was now really good at bickering.

Trembling, Poppi struggled painfully to her feet. But it didn't last long. She started to fall...

"Poppi!" He shouted Poppi's name and grabbed her arm to steady her. But he was too late. He didn't catch the woman, but instead she dragged him to the ground. She was too heavy.

He was surprised by this and tried to compensate. He got closer to her and tried to put her in a bear hug. They were on a hill, though, and the two of them rolled down that hill, holding each other tightly.

"Ah…!" Poppi's scream of horror echoed in his ears.

"Quit shrieking!" Malcolm said. But he didn't feel very good himself. The ground was cold and hard.

They rolled for a few seconds and when they got to the hillside Malcolm hit the thick trunk of a tree. "Thud!"

And that was where they stayed. Chests heaving, they tried to calm down, the adrenaline leaving them both shuddering. Poppi's heart thumped and she pressed on him and kept murmuring, "I'm so scared, so scared..."

"Ahem!" Malcolm couldn't help coughing as his chest went numb.

Hearing this, Poppi raised her head with a pale face and said, "What? Hey, you okay? Are you hurt?"

Everything was still in the darkness between heaven and earth.

Looking at the woman lying atop him, Malcolm suddenly felt desire burning in his heart. The rain pelted down, dripping from her delicate face. He grabbed her arm and flipped her over on her back. He stared at her pure, bright eyes, silent for what seemed like an eternity.

"What... What's wrong?" Poppi's chest rose and fell with her breath.

"Poppi, do you know how much I hate you?" Malcolm lowered his voice all of a sudden, as if his voice had been squeezed out from behind his teeth. "Why is it always something with you?" His tone was fierce and hateful now. "I guess I have to watch you like a hawk all day every day!"

"I know you hate me, but I don't know… How much." Poppi's eyelids closed lightly and she was melancholy all of a sudden.

Malcolm opened his mouth slowly again, and his voice sounded listless, filled with loneliness, "You're so annoying that… Ugh! I don't know even what to do now."

Speechless, Poppi felt a sudden pain in her heart. She instinctively wanted to get up, but Mal

ld her tighter.

Poppi sneezed again along the way. When she got to the car, she was shivering from the cold. Her eyelids drooped. She looked terrible.

Then Malcolm turned on the heater and drove to the hotel with Poppi in tow.

Benson could do nothing to stop Malcolm. He was fairly powerful, and Poppi wasn't trying to get away from him.

When he was about to leave, he heard footsteps behind him. On hearing the sound, Benson turned his head. He saw Hugh, wet all over, looking in the direction Malcolm's car was heading. He was surprised and asked, "Mr. Su, what's wrong?"

"Nothing." Without saying another word, he opened the door, started the engine and zoomed off in the opposite direction of the hotel.

"Ahem!"

After clearing his throat, Benson felt a sharp pain in his chest. He looked at Hugh's car and then got in his own car and left. Both men were acting quite strange.

Sean had already gotten a call from Malcolm in the hotel. He cancelled the helicopters he requested and arranged for a doctor to wait in the room. Malcolm took Poppi directly to his suite through the back door.

A waiter brought Poppi to take a hot bath. When she came out of the bathroom, she was in a wide bathrobe and her face was red.

The doctor took her temperature and said she had a fever. He prescribed her two pills and an antipyretic needle. All Poppi wanted to do now was sleep. She didn't care whose bed she was in before she fell asleep. But before she drifted off, she thought about the kiss with Malcolm.

After the doctor left, Malcolm took a bath and changed his clothes.

When he went back to the room, he was alone there with Poppi. She lay on the bed, sleeping soundly.

Malcolm climbed on to the bed carefully. After sitting on the bedside for a long time, he finally lay down behind her, and wrapped his arms around the woman. The moment he held her in his arms, his heart was filled with happiness.

After struggling for so long, he finally lost himself in her.
