Chapter 4

Alexander placed Lily on the sofa and turned to get some ointment and alcohol swabs. He cleaned Lily’s wound and carefully applied some medicine.

The small cut had already stopped bleeding on the way to La Beauté. With the ointment applied now, Lily’s skin felt iced cool.

Lily looked at the man in front of her, lowering his head and focused on applying the ointment. Alexander’s impassive expression made it seem as if it was nothing. However, Nathaniel had never done something like this for Lily over the years because he never cared about Lily.

After applying the ointment, Alexander looked up and saw Lily’s absent-minded expression. “What is it?”

“N-Nothing…” She shook her head and quickly put down her feet. “Thank you.”

“You are my wife, so there’s no need to say thanks. However, there is one thing I hope you’ll remember,” Alexander said as he screwed the cap onto the ointment tube.

“Please, what is it?” Lily nodded.

“I don’t care about the past, but since we’re married, you can no longer be involved in the indistinct relationship…”

“I won’t!” Before Alexander could finish, Lily interrupted, “You don’t have to worry. At least in this marriage, I’ll guarantee my loyalty. I hope you will too.”

Alexander raised his eyebrows as he did not expect she would have the courage to ask for any requests.

“I know our marriage is just beneficial to you. Although I do not know your purpose, I hope we can keep some principles in this marriage. If one day you fall in love with someone else, I can accept divorce, but I have zero tolerance for cheating in marriage.”

She had already experienced betrayal once. She would never allow it to happen again.
