Elsa opened her mouth to complain. She couldn't even change her clothes in five minutes. Besides, she also wanted to take some medicine to prevent herself from catching a cold. But on second thoughts, she closed her mouth and turned around.

She struggled to go upstairs and went to Brad's room. Ever since they got married, they never slept together. Brad used the master bedroom while she used the guest room. These two rooms were very far from each other.

Elsa ran the bath in a daze. She wished that after filling the bathtub, she could dip herself into it. She didn't know how long she stayed in the bathroom, and she didn't notice that she had fallen asleep.

When she woke up, she was already lying in the big bed. Her wet clothes had been changed as well.

Elsa looked around, wondering where she was. It was dark, so she wasn't sure if she was in her room. The last thing she could remember was she was running a bath for Brad. She couldn't understand why she was in bed now.

"Are you awake?"

Elsa was a little surprised when she heard Brad's voice. It was only then that she noticed a flicker of flame at the corner of the room.

He was smoking.

She frowned when she smelled the cigarette smoke. It wasn't good for her throat because she would always suffer from chronic inflammation every time she inhaled the smoke.

She cleared her throat to let Brad know that she was really awake now.

He seemed to understand because he immediately stubbed out the cigarette in his hand.

The curtains were not closed, so under the pale moonlight that penetrated through the window, Elsa could see Brad's figure moving closer to her. She felt like her heart was in her throat.

"Elsa, don't you get tired of running away from home every time you get angry?"

he sneered coldly.

"I went out to give you and that woman some privacy. You should be happy about that."

Earlier this evening, she was so sad. Then when she saw another woman in her house, she got hysterical. But now, her body felt numb. Only God knew what she was going through. Brad didn't know that she always went out because she didn't want to totally lose her love for him. If she fought with him all the time, she might

fall out of love with him soon.

Elsa was stunned when Brad's big hand grabbed her chin, forcing her to raise her head. He looked straight into her eyes and said, "I didn't know that you have become so generous."

Brad could still remember the first time he had brought a woman home. He had deliberately chosen the room next to Elsa's and asked the woman to groan loudly on purpose to provoke her. As he had expected, she had banged the door outside and roared, asking the woman to get out of the villa.

Elsa did not answer. But there was a look of sadness in her eyes.

The truth was, she didn't want to be generous at all. No woman in her right mind would want to share her husband with other women. But if she continued to fight with him, it wouldn't change anything. She couldn't stop Brad from bringing women to their house. Perhaps Brad wanted her to stay and watch him flirting with other women to make her life more miserable.

Brad let go of her chin and added, "Elsa, don't pretend that you are aggrieved. After all, this is what you asked for."

Brad was wrong. She had never asked for this kind of life.

Elsa smiled bitterly. She felt a throbbing headache.

She lifted the quilt and got up to get some medicine. But as soon as she stood up, she felt like the room was spinning. Brad was so close to her, but he didn't even bother to help her. He just watched her collapse on the floor awkwardly.

"Don't pretend to be dead. It won't have any effect on me."

Elsa didn't expect that Brad would be that cold-blooded. Although she felt weak all over, she mustered all her remaining strength and stood up. She was trembling, but she didn't want to lose the last bit of pride left in her.

"I know that. Because in your heart and in your eyes, only that woman matters to you."

She didn't mention any name, but she saw that his eyes darkened.

"Elsa, since you asked me to marry you, you should enjoy your life now,"

Brad countered. He then turned around and walked out of the room without looking back. Elsa was left alone, staring blankly ahead.

'Brad, if I had only known that our marriage would end up this way, I wouldn't have asked for that day, ' she thought inwardly.
