&#lt;p&#gt;&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She turned around and saw a tall figure standing in front of a huge French window, through which the
sunlight filtered on him, making his attractive face seen clearly. He raised the corner of his mouth, a
relaxed but charming smile appearing on his face.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry stood still in a daze, watching him standing by the window, with a smile forming at the corner of
his mouth. She felt her eyes were wet with tears welling up. Now she understood the feelings of
worrying about a person badly.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;With his sight fixed on her, William strode over and concealed the loneliness in his eyes. He wouldn’t
let anyone see his vulnerability!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Her coming surprised him, but happiness rose up in his heart with the sight of her.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He moved his lips as if to speak but in the end he didn’t, just looked at her with a calm expression.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Their sights met. Sherry felt her heart pounding like a captive animal. He walked over slowly and saw
tears in the corner of her face. Shocked a little bit, he asked, “What’s the matter?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Tears blurred her eyes. She suddenly felt awkward and turned her face aside.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She realized her abruptness. It seemed that she had over did it, because their relationship did not
come that far that she should worry about him so badly! For a moment, she was overwhelmed by
embarrassment and stillness.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He reached out his long and slender fingers and raised her chin, asking again with a husky voice,
“Hmm? What’s the matter?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;A drop of tear slipping down her face, Sherry watched him and opened her mouth but said nothing!&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;William smiled. His eyes were bright like a torch. But the tears shining in her crystal eyes made his
eyes sour with tears too. Maybe she was just shedding tears for herself? And he was surprised that he
was touched by her tears. Unbelievable! He must have been bewitched by this little woman.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Are you all right?” she finally uttered, with a shaking voice!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He suddenly pulled her into his arms and laid his head on her shoulder.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;His sudden movement made her heart race like a drum.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;William guessed she must have heard the news, but he didn’t expect she would come to see him!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“William, what exactly happened?” she spoke with a trembling voice, “Tell me, please!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“You worry that I won’t be able to support your life?” he asked.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Her heart still beat wildly, and her throat tightened. She didn’t know what to say. Even now he still got a
mood to play jokes, how annoying he was! “You……”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He held her shoulders and fixed his eyes on her, “I’m fine. I didn’t think you would worry about me so
much. I’m really flattered!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Hateful!” she thought he seemed happy to lose his position as CEO.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Sherry!” what a heartbreaking gentle call, “It’s fine with me that my position was replaced. Now I’ve got
a lot of free time for something else. Can you imagine that?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;His understatements about the fact made her eyes well up tears again. She asked, “Why?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“You don’t want me to marry Ashley and find Samuel a step-mother, do you?” he asked back.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“I……” she froze.&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He turned her body around, and through the tear-filled eyes, he saw his face immerse in a limpid pool,
so blurred and distant.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Seeing her teary eyes, slightly shocked as he was, he sighed, “Is it because that you’re afraid I can’t
support you and children if I’m not CEO?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“I don’t care if you’re CEO or not!” she argued quickly, but she suddenly felt it was not right for her to
say so. She pushed him away and said, “Don’t you worry for yourself at all?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Why should I? I’m so pleased that he was willing to take the job!” William walked to the sofa near him
and sat down. He lit a cigarette and started smoking again.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She noticed the piling up cigarette butts, which seemed to be finished a short while ago. It was obvious
he had been smoking before her coming, but he just pretended to care nothing.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Liar!” she walked to him with anger, took his cigarette and put it out in the ashtray. “Why did you
smoke so much if you don’t care?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He was surprised. She now looked like his wife very much. Wife! He was fond of this word!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Are you worried that I’m not CEO of the company or that you have no chance to marry me for your
life?” he raised his eyebrow and looked at her. That gorgeous face made her eyes blink.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;At the moment when she lost in thought, he quickly embraced her into his arms and searched
fragrance on her lips. Sherry blushed instantly.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“You……”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“This is a little punishment to you……” he showed a flirting smile. “It’s no use to be worried. You can
only be with me in your life, even if I’m not CEO of the Rowland Group. You only can be my, William
Rowland’s woman!”&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“I’m not going to marry you!” she said, but her heart beat faster and her cheek was hot as if burning in
fire. She struggled to get up, “Let me go!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Who allowed you to put out my cigarette?” he pretended to be irritated, “Well you have to be punished
for this, the punishment is kissing me for ten minutes, or I won’t let you go!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry was pissed off for he still had mood to joke. Seeing his look in a carefree manner, she gnashed
her teeth with hatred but didn’t know how to talk back.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Why? Are you mad?” his musical and magnetic voice came to her ears, but she just glared at him with
rage.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Under his teasing gaze, she flushed badly and her heart beat violently while she stayed in his arms.
“You just let me go!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“No!” he embraced her waist even tighter. “Kiss me, kiss me then I’ll let you go!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“William Rowland, you rascal!” she yelled in a low voice in embarrassment.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Hmm! Rascal? Then let me show you what a rascal would do!” as he said, he pulled her over by her
neck, with their face to face in an extremely close distance. The tips of their noses almost touched, and
his warm breath heated her face up gradually.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;A harsh sight flashed in his narrowed eyes and fell on her face, to be precisely, on her self-mockery
smile.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She looked at him and said, “Thank you!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Suddenly, she forgave everything! She didn’t hate him for taking her child away, as at the beginning it
was a deal based on their contract. It seemed that she was not qualified enough to blame him.&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He had had the idea to marry her and he had made plans for their children. That was enough! What
else could she ask for?
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He was shocked and puzzled, and he raised his eyebrows, “Thank me for what?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“For you were not always a bad person as I thought……” she lowered her head and dared not to
continue. She had thought he was a bad person without any mercy!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“You bad girl!” with great excitement, he held her hands, which were soft and slender, lying helpless in
his palms. She seemed to have struggled a little bit but she gave up soon, allowing him to hold her and
stare at her. With a somewhat sad and passive tenderness, she sat on his laps and gazed at him too.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Sherry” he whispered, “be my woman, will you?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She froze and looked at him with her wide open eyes even without a blink.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“No!” she said softly.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Sherry!” he said seriously, “I mean it!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She opened her eyes wider and looked into him deeper, frowning slightly.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Just be my woman!” he asked again, “How hard is it to say yes?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She gazed at him, seeing his agitated expression, where there was gloom, harshness and upset in his
eyes. “You are such a stubborn woman. Even I owned your body, you still acting cool to me. You want
to piss me off, don’t you?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“I……” her heart beat wildly, along which her voice also trembled, “Are you serious?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He twisted his dashing eyebrows, “You look into my eyes!”&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She was confused but she did as told and found his eyes were so profound.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Sherry, listen clearly this time, I’m serious! I mean it! Why don’t you trust me?” he narrowed his eyes at
her. Her small face was as red as it could be, where her eyebrows twisted slightly with an air of
nervousness and shyness, and her lips were plump like a peach which tempted him to taste. “Shall I
dig out my heart for you to see?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She was stunned. His eyes were filled with light and her quiet heart raced faster and faster because of
his words, “I believe you! It’s just I don’t want to be your mistress, and I don’t want to live a life without
dignity. However, for the child’s sake, I’m willing to sacrifice my dignity, as long as it is good for Samuel
and Daniel! But to be honest, I don’t want to be a mistress!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“How about my lover?” he asked.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;His words stroke her trembling heart again. She was stunned again and somehow she was even
nervous. Her eyes were blurred by tears and they suddenly streamed down out of her control. “Haven’t
you said that woman can’t ask man for love? And you also said you wouldn’t promise me status and
love, didn’t you?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;William saw her crystal tears, and his eyes and heart tightened.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Then Sherry was surprised to find that she was weeping on his laps, and she immediately turned aside
and hurriedly wiped the tears. She struggled to get up, as she felt awkward.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;But he embraced her tightly with his muscular arms and pressed her face to his chest. He felt her
burning hot tears.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She was surrounded by slight smell of cigarette. They were so close and she just can’t think at that
moment. She heard his deep and husky voice saying, “Silly girl, you are really a silly girl easy to be&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;stubborn and serious.”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“What do you mean?” she murmured in his embrace, with a sobbing voice, “Why? I’m not silly.”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Then who is silly?! I have stated my idea so clearly, but you still didn’t understand!” he sighed and
shook his head, but there was a big smile in his eyes, which can’t be surely told to be teasing or
happiness. “If you don’t want to be my mistress, then be my lover!”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Boom—
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She was totally shocked and amazed.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;He continued his whisper, “A forever and lifetime love. What do you say?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Sherry was surrounded by his hot breath. She felt her ears turned red, or to be exactly, her whole body
was heated red, from hair to the toes! She buried her small face in his chest and wondered what did he
mean?
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Was it a declaration of love?
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;A forever and lifetime love! Wasn’t it more usual for lovers?
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;It was the fact that he didn’t want a relationship mixed with love, wasn’t it.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Lots of questions haunted her mind, and her heart was as messy as it could be. Did it mean that he
treat her as his lover?
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“William, I’m stupid. I don’t understand!” she replied quietly. If it was not that she heard him say so, she
would really be confused. She needed to be communicated in a direct manner, not in such an indirect
way.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“Look at me!” his voice was husky, full of ambiguous emotion.&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p/&#gt;

&#lt;p/&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She looked up with the blushed face, where her cheek was as red as the evening sky with burning
sunset, and her eyes were as bright as shining stars in the dark. Holding back her shyness, she looked
at him straightly and muttered, “I look at you! So?”
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;Anyway, he couldn’t eat her!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;She sounded like the soft breeze in the wildness, with the fragrance of flowers in it.
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;“I’m not joking! A forever and lifetime love!” he supposed it was a declaration of love. Love was the last
that he would like to speak out, because he was heavily hurt. But he needed a girl like Sherry. And
Samuel also needed his mother. They could have love gradually if they were together!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;What’s more, it had been a long time that he didn’t flirt with any women except Sherry! And he would
never lose any interest in her, as he was so enchanted by her and addictive to her!
&#lt;/p&#gt;
&#lt;p&#gt;But Sherry glared at him. She thought he was not direct enough. However, his eyes were so focused
and serious.&#lt;/p&#gt;
