Chapter 43 The Untainted Crystal
Crystal was exhausted.
No matter how she tossed and turned, she couldn’t fall asleep at all. Every time she was drifting off to sleep, she would feel a strong pair of arms wrapping around her body, while a man softly whispered her name, “Crystal…”
She suddenly woke up in shock.
In the dimly lit bedroom, only a ray of moonlight shone through the crack in the curtains, casting a hazy and surreal glow.
Crystal sat up and lightly touched her face.
It wasn’t a dream.
She was in Henry’s place and was sleeping in his bed…
The bedroom door opened quietly as Henry came in after finishing his work. As soon as he entered, he saw Crystal sitting on the bed, looking bewildered like a pitiful little puppy.
He gave up on turning on the lights and sat by the side of the bed while gently stroking her soft long hair. Why aren’t you asleep yet?”
Following his hand, Crystal obediently leaned against his shoulder.
Henry knew what she wanted to ask as he whispered in her ear, “I’ve already made the necessary arrangements just now. I’ll take care of it tomorrow morning and if everything goes well, he should be released on bail.”
Crystal was grateful beyond words.
Without saying anything, she simply wrapped his neck.
Henry, being in his prime, didn’t feel the need to restrain himself. Hence, everything happened naturally as he guided her in a pa**ionate embrace, while they exchanged kisses that seemed to last an eternity.
Since it was Crystal’s first time, she was somewhat nervous and didn’t know where to put her hands and feet.
Her body also trembled uncontrollably.
However, the more she was like this, the more Henry was aroused.
Just as both of them were getting lost in the heat of the moment, Crystal frowned and let out a small cry of pain.
Breathing heavily, Henry leaned in close to her ear and asked in a whisper, “What’s wrong?”
“My heel is blistered and it hurts,” she replied in a quivering voice.
With his hand cradling the back of her head, he looked down at her. Fearing that he would be upset, she hugged his neck tightly and softly mumbled, “It doesn’t hurt anymore.”
Henry chuckled lightly

After that, he tenderly nuzzled his nose against hers and his voice became hoarse as he murmured, “Miss Winters, are you more impatient than I am?”
Crystal blushed so much that she was as red as a tomato.
Henry refrained from teasing her further and turned on a bedside lamp, which cast a soft yellow glow that illuminated their faces and allowed them to see each other’s expressions.
She hastily grabbed a sheet to cover herself.
He chuckled upon seeing that. “Are you shy? If I had known you were a little innocent girl who doesn’t know much about these things, I wouldn’t have dared to make a move.”
Henry’s words were playful, but he had no idea that she truly had no experience with men.
Crystal watched his back as he got out of bed to retrieve the first aid kit for her.
He had an impressive build with lean muscles enveloping his tall and sturdy frame. His build was sleek and had just the right proportions.
Before he returned, she quickly put on a shirt.
After a brief moment, Henry came back with the first aid kid, and Crystal was sitting on the edge of the bed. “I can take care of it myself,” she muttered.
However, he held her back. As he crouched down, he grasped one of her feet before applying the medicine.
Crystal felt uneasy.
In this relationship, she felt that there was no need for him to be overly kind or attentive to her.
Henry looked up and instructed, “Don’t move.”
Sensing her thoughts, he gently explained, “I don’t like to pressure anyone. When we’re together, we’re equals, and what I really want is for us to be thoroughly pleased in the relationship.”
His words were utterly flirtatious.
Crystal contemplated asking him about his previous experiences in relationships like this but found the question lacking in interest as they were not officially a couple. Although Henry did not say it explicitly, she knew that their relationship would come to an end when he grew tired of her.
I should be grateful to him for preserving my dignity at my most miserable moment, she thought.
