To Be Yours Again novel (Alec and Jenny) novel Chapter 32

Chapter 32 Drowning

“Y… yes,” Alec replied with great difficulty. He felt as if the darkness would soon drown him, and Jenny’s hand was the only thing keeping him afloat.

“My phone is out of battery. Where’s yours?” she asked as she held on to him. She felt that his trembling was growing worse. If this persisted, he would pass out in the elevator. “I’m going to search for it myself if you say nothing.” She began feeling around with her hands.

She had no intentions besides calling the property manager, but then, in the darkness, her hands fumbled and groped. Her slender fingers touched Alec’s firm chest, and further down were his prominent abdominal muscles. He had a good figure, she thought.

“Where are you touching?” Alec said, somehow managing to sound cold through his trembling voice. Jenny took her hand away quickly and laughed dryly. “I don’t know where your phone is.”

The man scoffed, pushing down the revulsion in his chest. He took his phone out of his wallet. “I don’t. have the manager’s number. Call Vincent.”

“Fine.” Jenny nodded and called Vincent at once. She explained everything to him, and the only thing left. to do was wait.

She turned on Alec’s flashlight, which helped because he wasn’t trembling as much now.

“Are you claustrophobic?” she asked, wanting to divert his attention.

He shook his head.

“What is it, then?” As a doctor, she wanted to know purely out of professional curiosity.

Alec looked at her with hatred in his eyes. “It’s none of your business.”

Jenny was speechless and scooted to the side, distancing herself from him. What a waste of her concern. He didn’t deserve her pity at all!

“Why are you moving away?” The flashlight was weak, and when Jenny moved, Alec couldn’t see her at all. He dared not move. The darkness to him was akin to a large cave; if he neared it, he would be devoured.
