Chapter 3372 Foreign Territory
Her words resembled water dousing out the fire, causing Jake to pause his actions. Arching an eyebrow at her, he finally released her shoulders.
“You seem to have a flair for ruining the mood.” Jake gazed at her calmly, but the lust in his eyes was still apparent and did not seem to be going away any time soon.
Megan’s heart skipped a beat and she looked away. She felt like no matter how many times they got intimate, she couldn’t seem to get used to Jake’s touch.
The feeling of blushing as her heart raced, coupled with the sudden rise in body temperature was simply too overwhelming for her.
Drawing in a deep breath, Megan scurried toward the dining table and hugged the books to her chest, as if using them as a shield.
“Mm, I should go do my revision now. Why don’t you go out and grab something to eat in the meantime?”
Jake could tell that Megan was avoiding him and chuckled with a hint of amusement gleaming in his eyes. The more she tried to escape, the stronger his primal instinct was to conquer her in her vulnerable state.
“It’s already so late. Your brain won’t be able to absorb anything. I don’t feel like going out to eat. Cook something for me.” Jake suppressed the carnal desire in him and leveled his gaze with hers, seemingly back to normal.
With the books still in her arms, Megan hesitated for a moment. Only until he led her into the kitchen did she partially believe that he had given up on his dirty thoughts.
“You cook. I’ll watch.”
Jake stood just outside the kitchen and didn’t take a step further. Instead, he leaned against the wall and trained his gaze on Megan inside the kitchen, admiring her graceful profile which made her look too perfect to be real.
Megan felt miserable about being forced into the kitchen. She often cooked back in the countryside, but the problem lay in the fact that her food was very ordinary.
Back then, seeing as her dear mother and sister never complained, she made do with whatever recipes she knew. After all, she didn’t see the need to cook delicious food for that mother and daughter pair.
Heaving a sigh, Megan handed the books in her hands to him. Then, she went into the kitchen and opened the refrigerator to see what ingredients were available.
Imagine her exasperation when she saw a few packets of instant noodles, some green onions, and a few miserable eggs.
“Wow. Your house literally doesn’t have any ingredients.” Megan scanned the empty refrigerator with a shake of her head. Before she could even turn around to chastise him further, she felt a warm chest against her back. The next second, a muscled arm reached out to rest on the side of the refrigerator.
“Seems like it.”
Jake’s deep voice jolted Megan out of her stupor. Blinking rapidly, her entire body stiffened.
Although the two of them were staying under the same roof, the days they were actually together could be counted with both hands. Hence, such intimacy was still foreign territory to her.
With her mind in shambles, Megan hastily grabbed the remaining ingredients from the refrigerator and tried to squirm out of the cage he had formed around her.
Jake had no intention to stop her either, lowering his arm to let her pass. He was merely teasing his prey at that moment, and he was greatly intrigued by her bashful reaction.
The two of them had obviously hit home run, but she was still so skittish around him.
While holding a packet of instant noodles and an egg, Megan stood in front of the kitchen cabinet and took a deep breath. Then, she forced herself to ignore the feeling of Jake’s eyes boring into her back and quickly prepared the ingredients in a bowl.
With the limited ingredients, she could only cook him a bowl of instant noodles with an added egg.
“Ah, so that’s how you break an egg.” Jake suddenly appeared within her line of sight, and exclaimed in realization, his close proximity sending a shiver down Megan’s spine.
At that moment, the water was boiling in a pot. She was too lazy to entertain him and only wanted to quickly dump the ingredients into the pot. However, Jake spun her toward him and smashed his lips against hers without warning.
She yelped in surprise, but the sound was muffled by his kiss.
What the hell?
Megan wanted to struggle, but Jake locked her in place with his arms, then traced the seam of her lips with his tongue. In an instant, all sense of reason flew out the window.
