Evan let Nicole have her way when he saw how reluctant she was. He simply got up and continued looking for a way out.
As he examined the place, he kept an eye on Nicole. When he saw that she was getting drowsy, he rushed to her side and pulled her into his embrace.
Being in his embrace created a sense of warmth that Nicole hadn’t experienced in a while, so she laid there. She didn’t feel like moving away from him anymore. Before she knew it, she had already drifted to sleep.
Evan stared at Nicole as she slept. He held her closer to him and wondered who she was dreaming about as she laid in his arms.
Is she dreaming about me or Levant?
Nicole, if you truly love Levant, then why don’t I take you away from Wicked Palace? We’ll go to a place where it’s just you and me, and I will spend the rest of my life with you while assuming his identity. Will you be okay with that?
