Something fishy was going on with Lynette’s strange behavior. Maybe it was what she suspected!
‘But… Is it really okay?‘ Serenity thought. If she guessed correctly, everything she knew would be different. Her relationship with Lucas would not be the same as before.
Serenity only saw Lucas as another acquaintance. Even if things changed, Serenity could think of Lucas as nothing more than a childhood friend. At most, they shared a common experience when they were children. She would not treat him differently, but what about Lucas? What would he think?
What about Jack? How would he react? Over time, Serenity had gradually grown to understand Jackson better, and she realized that Jack was extremely insecure in their relationship. Maybe his childhood experience had made him emotionally sensitive.
Jackson was already very bothered about her relationship with Lucas. Serenity became even more hesitant about seeing the psychiatrist. She was worried about what he would think if her suspicions were confirmed.
Just then, the bathroom door opened, and Jackson came out of the bathroom.
Jackson wore a bathrobe loosely, revealing only his chest. His long legs were wrapped in the robe, his black hair slightly wet. Instead of his hair being pulled into the usual slicked–back style, his bangs covered his forehead, and he seemed relaxed.
Serenity quickly put the note in the side drawer as she stood up and walked to Jackson. “You’re done.”
“Hmm? What were you looking at?” Jackson asked.
“It’s nothing,” Serenity said. She took the towel from his hand and changed the subject, “Come closer. I’ll dry your hair.”
Jackson’s eyes flickered. “Okay,” He responded, smiling gently. Then, he bent forward, his eyes leveled with hers.
Serenity put the towel over Jackson’s head and began towel–drying his hair. Jackson peeked up at Serenity through his bangs, his eyes sparkling.
It reminded Serenity of the first time she had taken Jackson home. She had done the same thing to his wet hair after he had washed his hair. At that time, he had looked at her with cold indifference, but now, he looked at her with tenderness.
Lost in thought, Serenity seemed to be drowning in his gaze.
“Serenity,” Jackson muttered softly.
Serenity snapped back to her senses, her face gradually turning red. Somehow, she could not resist falling for Jackson’s beautiful eyes.
“I–I’m going to bath!” Serenity exclaimed and stuffed the towel into Jackson’s hand. Then, she grabbed her clothes and hurried into the bathroom, shutting the door behind her.
Seeing that Serenity was gone, Jackson’s eyes changed slightly. He casually put the towel away and walked over to where Serenity had been sitting earlier. Then, he opened the side drawer.
He found a note in the drawer and picked it up. It was a doctor’s name and contact information.
What was she… Was she looking at this? Was she going to see the psychiatrist and recover her memory through hypnosis?
Jackson knew about her conversation with the doctor in the hospital the other day. If she were to recover her memories related to Lucas through hypnosis…. Jackson’s thoughts came to a screeching halt, his eyes darkening at the inexplicable emotions that rose in him.
