Back then, Arissa slept with Benjamin errantly after an elaborate set-up. However, she did not want to go into detail with Gavin that day.
So, she lowered her body and held on to Gavin's tiny shoulders. In an earnest tone, she explained, “You're still too young. I'll explain it to you when you're older. For now, just know that I love you all.”
With a soft touch, Arissa gently caressed Gavin's cheek.
He smiled coyly in return and said, “Now, I know. Before this, I assumed you abandoned me.”
Instantly, a sharp pain tore through Arissa's heart. Guilt-ridden, she pulled Gavin into an embrace right away and comforted him, “It's all my fault. I failed to protect you!” Arissa knew if she had been more careful, Danna would have had no chance to nab him.
“Mommy, I don't blame you at all. The baddies were just too evil!” uttered Gavin, who had his brows tightly knit in a bunch. When he had a look of hostility swept across his face, one could clearly see that Gavin took after Benjamin indeed.
