His And Her Marriage Chapter 422 – The airplane slowly regained control, but Roxanne‘s mind was still as blank as an empty piece of paper.
It wasn‘t until the plane had safely landed that Roxanne slowly came to her senses. She was still fearful of whatever had happened just now.
“I told you we would land safely.” Lucian‘s words seemed to have hidden meaning in them.
“Since we‘ve finally touched down, you can let go of me now, right, Ms. Jarvis?” Roxanne was surprised.
She had been so terrorized by what had happened just now that she had totally forgotten about the man sitting next to her.
Wait, let him go? What is he talking about? Just as she was in a dazed, something moved in her left hand.
Roxanne looked down and saw that her hand was intertwined with Lucian‘s on the armrest.
To be more accurate, it was her latching onto Lucian‘s hand for dear life. There were even marks of her fingernails embedded on his skin.
As she had been gripping his hand so tightly that her hand had gone stiff, she did not even realize that she was holding his hand.
Looking at their interlocked hands, Roxanne remained in shock for a few seconds before snapping back to reality.
She instantly let go of Lucian‘s hand as if it burned her. . Lucian chuckled lightly at her reaction, not at all surprised by it.
is drenched It was after Roxanne retracted her hand that she realized that her body in a cold sweat. Her palms were also just as sweaty.
At that realization, she looked at the man next to her, only to see that he had gotten a tissue and was wiping his own palm slowly.
It was obvious that his palm was full of her sweat as well. A wave of embarrassment washed over Roxanne.
After calming down, she slowly recalled how Lucian had comforted her during the flight.
It didn‘t matter how much she wanted to maintain a distance between them.
At that moment, she couldn‘t help but admit how grateful she was to him. It was fortunate that he was there with her.
Snapping out of her reverie, Roxanne looked at the man beside her with a serious expression on her face. “Thank you for comforting me curlier.
Otherwise…” she trailed off Lucian discarded the tissue he had used to wipe the sweat and met her eyes.
He instantly noticed that there was still sweat on her forehead and frowned.
Roxanne, however, thought that Lucian was bothered by her attitude. She pursed her lips, suddenly at a loss for what to do.
She was supposed to treat Lucian like a stranger, but he was by her side when she needed help the most.
Therefore, she couldn‘t bring herself to put up the same cold exterior. Right then, two pieces of tissue appeared in front of her. “Here.
Wipe the sweat off your forehead. The plane has safely landed. There‘s no need to be afraid anymore.” Lucian‘s voice rang beside her.
Roxanne took the tissues and wiped the sweat off her forehead. “Thank you. It was my first time experiencing something like that.
I was really afraid,” she said as she looked at the man in front of her. Lucian quirked an eyebrow nonchalantly. “And then?
Is that how you‘re going to thank me?” Roxanne‘s eyebrows furrowed slightly as she looked at Lucian with a troubled look in her eyes.
“How do you want me to thank you, Mr. Farwell?” Lucian‘s lips twitched when he heard how she addressed him.
“I want you to stop avoiding me. Can you do that? I remember you said that we are only strangers to each other.
I don‘t think you need to keep avoiding a stranger, Ms. Jarvis.” Roxanne was taken aback. She cast her gaze downward and remained silent.
She was incredibly thankful to Lucian for helping her earlier. Nevertheless, she was still going to stay away from him.
Lucian fell silent for a few seconds when he noticed her reaction. He then got up without any expression on his face. “
Forget it if you can‘t do that,” he said in a cold voice. With that, he got off the plane.
