It was a call from Selden!
Why was he calling her early in the morning?
Ava rejected the call with a cold expression on her face. She then covered herself with the blanket again and continued sleeping.
She could feel something warm on her waist. It was an arm. She froze for a moment before remembering what happened last night.
Damien had hugged her to sleep. There was a surge of warmth in her heart, and she couldn’t help but smile. She rolled over to take a peek at Damien’s sleeping face. However, her cell phone rang again. The sleeping Damien frowned, seemingly disturbed by the sound. Ava hurriedly put the phone to silent. She then got off the bed and tiptoed to the balcony to answer the call.
“Selden, what’s up?” Ava asked in exasperation. Selden sounded aggrieved. “What’s up? Didn’t you agree to treat me for three meals? Today happens to be my off day!” Ava was struck speechless. “My ankle is still injured. How am I supposed to go out for a meal with you in this state?” Selden chuckled softly and said in a tender voice, “Don’t worry. I’ll take good care of you.” Ava rolled her eyes. “Not today. Let’s do it another day.” Selden asked indignantly, “Why not?” Ava thought of Damien who was sleeping in the bed, and her tone became a little more tender. “He is home today…” On the other side of the phone, Selden was silent for few seconds before he finally said, “Alrght, then.” After hanging up, Ava turned and realized with a start that Damien was standing behind her. There was an extremely dark expression on his face. When Ava saw the look on his face, her heart skipped a beat. She then subconsciously hid the phone behind her. “Who were you talking to?” he asked coldly. Ava explained. “A friend.” Damien took a step forward towards her, and his expression became even darker. “Not today. Let’s do it another day… He is home today.” This was what Damien had heard. And Ava looked guilty and scared now. Of course, Damien’s thoughts were running wild. Moreover, he saw with his own eyes in front of the hospital that day that Ava was flirting with a man.
“Which friend?” he asked.
Ava didn’t dare to tell him that it was Selden. After all, he had just punished her by tormenting her all night the day before yesterday because of Selden
“Just… Just an ordinary friend,” Ava answered. Damien was emanating such an oppressive aura that Ava took another step backward.
But the balcony was small. Damien took another step forward, and Ava couldn’t retreat anymore.
“Give me the phone.” Damien lowered his head to look at her, and his gaze was dark as well as profound. Ava tightened her grip on the phone and refused. “Why should I give it to you? It’s my privacy!” “Privacy?” Damien uttered mockingly. He didn’t bother saying anything else. He reached out and wrapped his arm around Ava, pulling her into an embrace. He then extended his other hand to snatch the cell phone from her. “Damien, what are you doing?” Ava tried to snatch the phone back, but Damien pressed her against his chest, and she couldn’t move at al.
Damien easily restrained all of Ava’s movements. He effortlessly raised the cell phone, unlocked it and looked at the call log. It was shown that “Selden Oakley” was the last person who had called Ava.
Damien’s expression immediately turned cold. To make things worse, at this moment, the cell phone vibrated. Selden had sent Ava a text message. “Whether he’s home or not, you must come out and see me within the next few days!” The tone of the message was domineering and suggestive. Damien was extremely furious. He tightened his grip on the phone so much that it was as though he wanted to squash it to pieces.
“Ava, are you that desperate for men? You are actually planning to cheat on me when I’m around!”
