Deep Love Hidden From Him novel Chapter 135

Seconds before the cramp, Everleigh noticed that there was something wrong with her legs, but it was too late.

After she tried to kick her leg in the water, she subconsciously raised her head to breathe, but a violent cramp hit her legs and caused her to breathe in a huge gulp of water which choked her.

Before she managed to cough out the water, she choked on it and lost her balance in the water. Her whole body tilted as she sank into the water, while she tried to kick her feet desperately.

She heard the sound of water splashing and then felt a large pair of hands pulling her out.

She grabbed onto the pair of hands as though her life depended on it. She then hugged the hand tightly and coughed violently.

"Ahem, ahem..."

Her brain buzzed when she coughed and her eyes were red and filled with messy tears. A familiar voice came from above her head. "Are you alright?"

The low male voice seemed so close to her, like it resonated with the water in her ears. Everleigh suddenly woke up and opened her eyes to see her lifesaver.

It was Theodore.

Due to the lack of strength in her legs, she used all the strength in her wrists. At this moment, she completely hung onto Theodore's neck, as though he was her rescue buoy. Similarly, her entire body clung to Theodore.

The sound of whistling came from a distance, accompanied by the laughter of a few young people on the other side of the swimming lane. In an instant, Everleigh's face turned as red as the sunset glow.

"I'm fine." She tried to struggle free from Theodore's embrace but when she let go of his hand, she let out a cry of surprise. Her entire body leaned backward.

The place where she was, was too deep. Her cramping foot could not touch the bottom of the pool at all. The back of her foot bent a little and her legs cramped again. She cried out in pain.

Theodore's eyes were sharp and his hands were quick. He reached out to Everleigh and grabbed her waist.

"Let me go."

"Don't pretend to be fine." Theodore frowned. He picked her up from the water and walked straight towards the shallow waters.

Most of Everleigh's body was submerged in the water and her mind was buzzing. Even if she wanted to break free, her cramping legs did not allow her to let go.

There were lounge chairs by the pool. Theodore put Everleigh down on one and crouched down to examine her leg.

Everleigh subconsciously wanted to avoid him, but her calf bumped against the edge of the chair and it struck the tight muscle in her calf. She let out a cry of pain; it was so painful that she could not move at all.

"Stop moving," Theodore said in a low voice in front of her.

Before Everleigh could recover, Theodore had already grabbed her calf and massaged it gently. He did not say a word. When he lowered his head, she could see two curls of hair on top of his head.

For some reason, Everleigh suddenly recalled that when she was still in love with Theodore back then, he had told her that when he was young, his grandmother had told him that people with two hair curls on top of their heads were smarter. Because she only had one, she argued with him for a few days over it.

After a long time, her calf muscles gradually began to loosen up. Her legs started to relax and return to their original state. However, she still felt a slight pain and could not move her legs.

"I'm fine now." She held her knees hesitantly. She avoided his eyes and had mixed feelings in her heart.

"Remember to stretch before swimming next time."

Everleigh's shoulders sank when she heard his words. Theodore then took a bath towel and covered her body with it.
