Chapter 473 Being Totally Let Down After Getting My Hopes Up
The fact that he didn’t greet me despite having returned irked me, and it took me a while before falling asleep on bed. Waking up to broad daylight the next day, after washing up, I went downstairs for breakfast in a fresh change of clothes. Sharon had already prepared breakfast, but I was wondering while staring at the unoccupied table if Eric wasn’t going to join me for breakfast.
Seemingly having read my mind, Sharon responded, “Young Master Eric came home late last night, so he’s still sleeping.”
I gave a hum before digging into my food, which I finished quickly, then went for a stroll outside, only to find out that Eric hadn’t woken up still. Did he used to sleep this much? While ascending the stairs, I thought to myself, then lingered on the corridor to cast a glance at his room which Sharon left his luggage in last night.
The door to his room was closed, which indicated that he was still sleeping, so I wondered if I should go wake him up. However, I decided against it, opting instead to enter my own room. At that moment, there were sounds of a door opening behind me, during which I turned to see a woman walking out from his room through the open door.
I was startled upon seeing the woman’s face. Why is she here? The woman who came out from Eric’s room was Beverly Deering, who was in a knee-length white silk nightdress. Her hair lay tousled across her shoulders while her breast was exposed, as she didn’t tighten the strap on her nightdress.
With ringing ears, I quickly entered my room before closing the door. Even an idiot would know what happened last night upon witnessing a beautiful woman in her nightdress coming out from Eric’s room early in the morning. Suddenly, I was hit with flashbacks of how he treated me yesterday. He must’ve treated Beverly in the same way last night.
