The Enigmatic Return novel Chapter 106

Neera intended to go back to her own house after Jean’s parents had left. However, it’s been more than an hour, and they show no sign of leaving. She was astonished to learn Jean’s identity and hadn’t gotten much sleep the night before. She was worn out, both physically and mentally. She began to doze off.

Jean asked, "Are you tired?"

Neera glanced at him and said, "Isn’t it obvious? I haven’t removed my makeup or taken a shower. How could I fall asleep?" She felt uncomfortable with makeup on. "What time is it now? Your parents are not planning to leave, right?"

It was past eleven o’clock. Based on Jean’s understanding of Frederic, he won’t give up easily. There was no escape today. He nodded. "You won’t be able to leave now. Just rest in my room today."

Neera frowned and said, “Alright, I guess there is nothing I could do. Could I use the bathroom?" Why do I need to go through this?

Jean was a gentleman and said, "Please go ahead."

Neera locked the door. Jean stared into the air, looking blankly. The fact that a woman was in his room made him lose his cold.

Neera looked around in the bathroom. She turned red, realizing she would take a bath in a man’s bathroom. She dawdled before taking the shower. A few minutes later, she was shocked to discover that she had no clothes to change. I can’t go out in a wedding gown, right?

Neera took a bathrobe from the shelf at the end. It belonged to Jean, and it did not fit her. She struggled to tie the bathrobe.

Jean stopped reading the document; he was taken by the beauty of Neera. A woman is wrapped in my bathrobe; she looks like a shy girlfriend wearing her boyfriend's clothing. Without any makeup, she looks extraordinarily beautiful. Jean had a sudden thirst; he drank a couple of sips.

Neera was embarrassed by his gaze. "I don’t have a change of clothes; is it okay to borrow your bathrobe?"

Jean pretended to be calm and said casually, "Sure." He continued to read the document.

Neera pouted. Everything is a mess now! We were neighbors yesterday; what are we now? I couldn't believe what happened today. I hope tomorrow comes quicker!

Neera was too sleepy; she fell asleep in a daze on the sofa. Jean was secretly paying attention to her. He observed her quietly and thought to himself, A woman is sleeping soundly beside me. I never expected myself to ask a woman to stay in my room overnight. He felt strange as well. She is my wife now. Everything that happened today was out of control.

He put Neera on the bed, took a shower, and rested on the sofa for the night.
