"Yes, sir!"

Grace nodded, maintaining a calm composure.

"You!"

The expression on Celia's face changed abruptly, as she did not expect this man to treat her in this way.

The maids and the people working for him had nothing to do with her and she didn't want them to suffer because of her.

"If you don't want people to suffer, just do as I say!"

His voice was as cold as ice. After a while, he glanced at her once and then walked towards the door without uttering another word.

Celia didn't let go of the quilt until she was sure that the door had been closed shut and the sound of footsteps had faded away.

"Mr. Carlos may have a bad temper, but don't forget the fact that he completely ignored what you did to him and his bedroom." Please don't give him any more reasons to be angry, Miss Ling. Please just quickly change your clothes and go downstairs."

Grace completely disregarded Celia's reluctance and walked towards her calmly.

"What? You mean, this is his bedroom?"

Celia looked around in awe.

The luxurious crystal lamps, white and pink curtains, the white sofa, a heart-shaped cushion and fluffy dolls. Even the expensive ornaments were pleasantly feminine.

If that man didn't have some eccentricity, why would he choose to live in such a room that was best suited for a girl?

In any case, Grace wouldn't give her an explanation either way.

When she noticed that Celia was standing there motionless, Grace tried to take off her clothes.

"No, I'll do it myself." Celia stopped her immediately. Soon after, something struck her and she turned to look at Grace.

"Well, Would you please wait for me outside? I'll be out when I'm done changing."

Grace, however, stood there like a statue.

The woman did not blink her eyes even once.

"You can relax! I'm not going to try to run away again." Celia almost raised her left hand to make a promise.

"No one, not even I, can disobey Mr. Gu's orders!"

Celia grunted, seemingly frustrated.

In spite of her reluctance and discomfort, Celia eventually changed her clothes.

When she finally arrived at the restaurant, Carlos was not there yet.

Sitting alone at the big dining table, Celia never felt more out of place in her entire life.

Celia was in no mood to eat at all, but clearly her opinions mattered very little to Carlos. She didn't have a cellphone, in fact, she wasn't even allowed to carry a handbag anymore. She had been completely cut off from the outside world.

"Miss, please enjoy your meal."

Grace's voice brought Celia's mind back to reality.

She managed to eat a few spoonfuls when suddenly a photo shown on the TV caught her attention.

Celia dropped the chopsticks on the table and turned to face Grace.

"Where is Mr. Gu? I need to see him now! Grace, will you please take me him?"

Celia ran towards Grace and begged, grabbing her arm.

"I am sorry, miss. I can't do anything without Mr. Gu's order!"

Grace's cold, robotic demeanor was utterly exasperating.

Celia looked at the screen again, gritting her teeth in anger.

"Can you at least let him know that I need to see him? I'm not going anywhere from here until he is willing to see me."

She crossed her arms across her chest with a defiant look and sat down again.

Grace glanced at her, and shook her head before going into the living room.

After a while, there was still no word from neither Carlos nor Grace. Celia sat there and waited for them patiently.

But as hours passed and time slowly ticked away like eternity, Celia began to lose hope.

"Boss, Grace said that Mi

ss Ling..."

"Tell her to wait."

Without raising his head, Carlos continued to concentrate on what he was reading. There was a layer of indifference on his handsome face.

"Yes, sir!"

Carlos didn't break concentration even after Boris left, but eventually he felt more and more restless.

After he managed to finish reading the last document, he looked at the phone on the table and dialed a number.

"Grace!"

As soon as Celia saw Grace, she stood up, but immediately she realized that her legs had gone numb from sitting around for hours.

"Miss Ling, Mr. Gu is in the hot spring now. If you really want to see him, please show your sincerity so that Mr. Gu can see it."

Celia Ling clenched her fist in anger. "Sure!"

However, when she arrived, Celia finally understood what Grace meant by "sincerity".

Grace left right after she brought Celia as no maids were allowed to be there.

The private hot spring in the open air was surrounded by layers of mist, and Celia couldn't see where Carlos was?

She walked towards the hot spring pool, when suddenly...

Plop!

A scream escaped Celia's mouth followed by a giant splash of water. While Celia slapped her limbs around desperately underwater, a strong pair of hands appeared from above and pulled her up.

"Mr. Gu, I..."

She coughed, spitting out a stream of clear liquid before she caught her breath. The moment she laid eyes on his handsome face, she avoided making eye-contact with him.

Tiny drops of hot water dripped from his hair and meandered down his firm chiseled chest. Celia's face turned red immediately when she found that she had held his arm.

However, when she noticed the bandage on his left shoulder blade, her sights froze again.

Was this man made of iron? Be injured and touch water.

The atmosphere between the two of them was so tense that Celia almost forgot what she had been wanting to say to him.

"Have you changed your mind?"

Finally, he broke the silence.

"I...I..."

A hint of impatience appeared on his handsome face.

"Mr..Mr. Gu, do you really want to marry me?"

It's not as though she didn't see herself to be marriage material, but the truth was too apparent to ignore.

"Yes!" He was a man of few words.

Celia felt downcast immediately. Not only because she was completely drenched from head to toe, but also because of his words.

"Can... you give me some more time so that I can go back and explain to my family and friends why I am getting married to someone I don't know, just out of the blue?"

Celia looked up at him with sincerity and genuineness, while a tinge of pink appeared on her cheeks.

However, even in the mist, Carlos managed to see the panic in her eyes.

"An explanation, huh?"

The way the man lingered on her words, made Celia feel nervous as she constantly wondered what was going on in his mind when he wasn't saying anything.

"Kiss me!"

he said, closing his eyes.

Celia's was taken aback by his directness as she had never done such a thing.

She knew that he was determined to make things difficult for her, but the matter carried great importance.

Finally, she leaned forward, closer to his lips.

Her body shook uncontrollably because she was so nervous. The moment her lips touched his, she felt his muscles tighten and she almost flinched.

Unfortunately, this was the only way she knew how to get out of here and go to the hospital.

Celia wasn't well-versed, but the man was very co-operative.

When Carlos eventually opened his eyes, he felt aroused by the heat of her breath on his lips.
