Daniella was stunned, and suddenly an evil thought popped up in her mind. Teasing might be a good idea under such circumstances, to see how Jack would react.
After plotting the evil idea, Daniella deliberately nodded her head and uttered in a diffident tone, “I’m your woman now. You…you have to be responsible for me!”
“What the…No way, really? Did we both…”
Jack was tongue-tied. For once he did not know what to do. How was he supposed to explain to his wife this time?
“The bedsheet was even stained red last night, and I had to ask the housekeeper to change the sheet. You acted like a barbarian, didn’t even know how to treat a lady tenderly…” Daniella informed in a more bashful voice.
Jack’s mind went foggy.
His head was buzzing and spinning. He did not expect at all for himself to do such a thing with Daniella after he got drunk.
Jack took a while before he could react. “Why didn’t you get an extra room? Besides, I was drunk, why didn’t you push me away?” He looked at Daniella, helplessly.
Daniella’s face sank immediately when she sensed a hint of malaise on Jack’s face. “Now what? Jack, I didn’t expect you to be such an irresponsible man! I’ve given you my precious first time, how could…how could you deny it!”
Daniella groaned; her face full of belligerence. “Do you know how tired I was to carry you back alone last night? I asked for two rooms but there was only one available!” She barked. “I was already exhausted and planned to get some rest after taking a shower. But at that time, you thought I was your wife, and you…you…you bully me!” She said in a sobbing tone.
Jack could not bear to see a girl crying. With the fear of seeing Daniella cry, he immediately comforted her and his tone was full of panic. “Don’t, please don’t cry. I don’t mean it that way. I just…I just think that I’m a few years older than you, and you were not drunk at that time, so you can push me away!”
Daniella raised her head and faced Jack. She bit her alluring rosy pink lips and pouted, “But, I don’t care about your age at all. I like you, that’s all. Besides, I was exhausted after carrying you back to the room and I was a little tipsy at that time too. That’s why I didn’t push you away!”
“Sigh! What should we do now? I promised my wife that I would only love her. But now we two… Sigh! Moreover, you’re still very young!”
Jack gazed at Daniella, who was six or seven years younger than him and felt bad about what had happened. This time he had stirred up big trouble. But, no matter how hard he tried to recall, he could not remember anything. Only images of him drinking, and more drinking ran across his mind. Then he felt dizzy and was eventually carried by someone on his or her back.
Daniella smiled sheepishly, looking at Jack’s embarrassed face. “Don’t worry about it. What’s done is done, it can’t be undone now. I’m now your girlfriend. But don’t tell your wife about us first. Wait until we’re closer with each other then we’ll tell her.” Daniella comforted him, trying her best not to laugh.
Jack cast Daniella a look and replied, “But, it won’t be fair to you right now!”
Daniella kept her laughter in check, trying not to burst into laughter. “Hey, hey. It’s okay. As long as you treat me well in the future, I won’t feel unfair!” Daniella put on a solemn tone and patted Jack’s shoulder to comfort him.
Jack went silent for a long time, before he finally said to Daniella, “Then…then later on when we return to the White family, you’ve to tell everyone that you’re my friend, okay? Sigh! I haven’t thought about how to tell Selena this…”
Jack was kicking himself for getting so drunk and making such a foolish mistake. Daniella even warned him not to drink the wine too quickly then.
However, he was full of himself at that time, thinking that his alcohol tolerance was good, so he disregarded Daniella’s warning. Now he had to reap what he had sown.
Looking at lines appearing between Jack’s brows, Daniella smiled contentedly. She then got up and went to the bathroom to change.
Jack sat on the edge of the bed and smoked a cigarette, in hopes that it would calm his panicked soul. He waited until Daniella was done washing up only then did he went to wash up too.
When he stood before the mirror in the bathroom, Jack took a look at his cheeks, red lipstick marks imprinted on his cheek. “I’m so done for… It looks like last night we did really… What’s more, Daniella is still a young girl. If I shove the responsibility away, the head of the Cabello family would kill me, right?” Jack sighed defeatedly.
