Chapter 57 A Man’s Scheme
Crystal was also sulking.
After the disagreement, she didn’t bother herself with Henry after she went back to their unit.
She took a shower to wash away the faint scent of cooking on her before leaning against the washstand to apply skincare products.
Henry hadn’t treated her any less than she deserved. Even though she had only moved in for two days, he had already gotten someone to send over several sets of high–end skincare products. She didn’t even ask him before she opened and used them. This is probably what a man’s scheme is. All men love their women soft and smooth.
After applying the lotion to her upper body, Crystal bent over to apply it to her calves. She looked particularly tempting even with this simple movement because of her wonderful figure.
At the very least, Henry felt tempted at the sight of her.
He stomped over and hugged her from behind, startling her. Despite her initial fright, Crystal did not push him away. She even let him do whatever he wanted.
After a while, he leaned closer to her ear and breathed, “Is it the time of the month?”
Crystal guessed that his anger had subsided, so she played along and answered, “It started tonight.”
Hearing that, Henry stopped his wandering hands as he pressed his body against her back. He seemed to be in a good mood as he chatted with her. “What do you want to do after the lawsuit ends? You’re not going to only keep teaching Sophia, are you?”
With her head all over the place, Crystal followed his train of thought and answered, “I want to teach somewhere else after the matter is over.”
He lightly nibbled behind her ear. “Should I send you to the Kingdom of Brundela for further studies after some time?”
At that point, Crystal came back to her senses a little. Naturally, she knew what he meant.
Their relationship wasn’t meant to last. If he sent her abroad after he lost his interest in her, he could both compensate her and keep her away from Robert so that she wouldn’t affect Melora’s marriage.
Crystal didn’t make a fuss about whether Henry would visit her when she was abroad.
She knew that he wouldn’t.
His sending her away would mark the end of their relationship.
If this was his rule for playing the game, Crystal was willing to play by it. She was not someone who didn’t know what was good for her.
It was probably because of how obedient Crystal was that Henry was interested in her. As he held her tight by the waist, he talked to her about a sex scandal from today, making her blush. Her heart also raced as her legs went weak.
She looked so tender and adorable that Henry had to turn her around before pressing her against the washstand and kissing her. This kiss was definitely different from any other kisses they had, as it had an

Chapter 57 A Man’s Scheme
She thought that he was a beast.
Crystal no longer dared to doubt if Henry’s body could function well. The man simply had too much energy!
Just as the two of them were lost in pleasure, Crystal’s phone began to ring.
It was Madison’s number that showed up on her screen.
“Let me…” She pushed Henry off of her as she mumbled, “Let me take the call.”
Henry reached out and handed her the phone. Crystal was speechless when he put it on speaker mode in front of her. She thought that the man was quite childish sometimes. It wasn’t like their relationship required such supervision.
However, she didn’t avoid him as she proceeded to talk to Madison.
Madison frowned when she heard her friend’s voice. “What’s wrong with your voice?”
“What? Oh, I’m fine.”
Madison then joked, “I would have thought that you’re doing the nasty if I didn’t know that you are single!”
Crystal immediately flushed red and scolded Madison under her breath.
Henry leaned closer to her ear and chuckled. “She is not wrong, you know.”
Worried that Madison would hear him, Crystal held onto her bathrobe with one hand and ran into the master bedroom. “Madison, I happen to have something to discuss with you. Can we meet up tomorrow?”
Thanks to Henry’s intervention, the Winters Family’s seized a**ets had been released. Crystal wanted to return Madison her money.
Madison was also happy for Crystal when she heard that John was about to be released on bail.
After chatting for a while, Madison brought up the main purpose of the call. “I have two things to tell you! You know that the Sloan Group is being targeted, right? My husband said Robert is under a lot of pressure, and he might end up in jail! Serves him right… Just thinking about it makes me so happy.”
Crystal was worried that Henry would be upset that they were talking about Robert.
As such, she tilted her head and glanced at him.
