Chapter 50 It’s up to You
After Henry returned the car, Crystal also finished shopping.
She got in the car with her items.
Henry was curious to see what she bought. “What did you buy? That’s quite a lot.”
“Two pairs of indoor slippers and two bathing robes.”
It was a woman’s nature to shop. Even if it was the most normal household item, they couldn’t help but stop by and check on them.
Henry glanced at the bag. “You want us to share the items in the same color as a couple?”
Crystal blushed. “That’s not true! It’s just that everything in your house is white…‘
She cleared her throat and changed the topic. “Did you get what you wanted?”
Henry’s eyes turned darker with lust at her words.
He scrutinized her longer than he should before taking out two boxes from his pocket at a teasing speed. He put the boxes on the dashboard. Crystal immediately regretted asking when she saw the description.
Why did I ask? Henry has wilder thoughts than he looks. He looks like a serious man from the outside but is very open in private.
She couldn’t help but think, Does he need to use them a lot?
Henry’s car rolled to a stop in the apartment’s parking lot. Robert, who had been trailing behind, could no longer follow him. He stopped the car outside and waited in the car to gather his thoughts.
He had been following Henry since they left the Miller Residence. He witnessed Crystal getting in Henry’s
He saw her walking into the household shop as if she was Henry’s wife.
He had also watched Henry buy two big boxes of condoms.
Does he plan to make a move on her tonight?
Robert slammed his fist on the steering wheel, making the car horn of the black sports car blare. The pedestrians turned in his direction and accused him with angry looks on their faces.
However, he paid no mind to his surroundings.
All he knew was that he lost Crystal. She could be lying on the same bed with Henry right now and he’s doing everything he wants to her.
On the other hand, Crystal was unaware of the silent competition between the two men.
She returned to the apartment with Henry. Right after she set her things down, she heard him mention,
Chapter 50 It’s up to You
“The helper is not around at night, so you should prepare some dinner for us. Something simple will do.”
Crystal had zero ideas about how a kept woman worked, let alone whether she needed to be in charge of preparing meals. However, she was grateful for Henry’s help. Thus, she was willing to do anything for him.
She was a good cook. The food was simple but delicious, and it amazed Henry.
At the dinner table, he took a few bites before looking at her. “They taste good.”
“Thank you.” Crystal sat opposite him as she ate her portion of dinner. Since he looked like he was in a good mood, she told him, “I’m going to Mr. Murray’s place to tutor Sophia later.”
Henry frowned at her words.
He indeed agreed with it earlier. However, he wasn’t too happy to learn she was leaving for work before she even settled down at his place.
Besides, he bought condoms.
Even so, he pretended to not be bothered by her words. “You can take a cab first. I’ll pick you up once you’re finished.”
Crystal didn’t want to trouble him, so she suggested something else, “I can take a cab back.”
Henry didn’t insist.
After all, they didn’t have to stick together judging from their relationship.
After dinner, he went into the study to deal with his work.
Crystal cleaned up the dishes and did some cleaning around the house. After everything was settled, she found Henry standing at the door to the study with a mug in his hand. He watched her with a thoughtful expression.
He casually remarked, “You’re a hard worker. I almost thought I brought a cleaner home.”
Crystal wasn’t naive. She could tell he was angry from his tone.
She obediently walked over to him before tiptoeing to kiss him on his lips. “I’ll be right back and make up for your loss.”
He took a sip of coffee and teased, “Oh? What do you have in mind, Miss Winters?”
Crystal blushed again at his implication. Mustering her courage, she purred, “It’s up to you. I’m all yours.”
Henry watched her with a scrutinizing gaze.
At last, he chuckled before giving her permission. “All right. You can go now.”
He then returned to the study deep in thought. That’s good. It’s boring if a woman is only good in bed. Crystal’s refreshing attitude is rather welcome.
