A Life Debt Repaid novel (John and Cordy) novel Chapter 13

Chapter 13


“I’m sorry I was late,” John said.

Cordy frowned, wondering if she was imagining it.

Somehow, this John was different from the usual John, who was more aloof.

Now, he seemed to feel emotions like humans do

Still, she wiggled against his hold, not sure what he was talking about.

“Did you get the wrong door? Let me go…”

Seemingly not feeling her resistance, John whispered into Cordy’s ear, “Now, I’ll always be here for you.

It sounded just like a promise.

“Look, just… ah!”

Cordy suddenly yelped as John abruptly scooped her up in his arms

Does he have some sort of fetish for carrying people?!

“You’d hurt your leg,” John said quietly into her ear just then.

Cordy was left speechless.

She actually thought that he was really drunk, but she somehow noticed her foot injury…

So, he was actually not drunk?!

Once that clicked, Cordy did not wait another moment and she started to struggle violently!

While John was not drunk, his body still felt a little floaty. Carrying her was no issue, but it was strenuous carrying her while she flailed around.

“Stop,” he said with restraint, but threateningly nonetheless.

“Let me down. I can walk on my own,” Cordy protested nonetheless.

She disliked being this intimate-and did he not assure before that he was not the type who messed around?!


Naturally, she could not care less about what he said and she continued to struggle against his hold.

It certainly took John considerable difficulty to carry Cordy into her room, but just as he glimpsed her bed, she shoved him so firmly that he stumbled.

“Ah!” Cordy yelled again, left feeling dizzy as they fell on her bed.

The man before her was like concrete-she could not make him budge or get away from her at all.

John growled threateningly then, “Please don’t test my patience, Ms. Sachs.”

He was trying to catch his breath, and there was an indescribable stress in his voice.

Cordy finally settled down

In the end, adults could always get the hint

“Finally stopping, huh?” John said, watching her as she stayed quiet in his arms.

There was an almost imperceptible blush on her fair cheeks, and he wondered if he should be happy

about that.

Still, he could not even come up with an excuse to tease her now.

“Let me go.” Cordy protested again.

“Just let me have a breather,” John said quietly.

Catching the hint, Cordy bit her lip and stopped moving.

John took a few deep breaths before getting off Cordy.

The room seemed to be rife with hormones by then, and the temperature looked like it would only rise instead of fall.

Cordy flipped around, and reached for the remote for her air conditioning from her bedside drawer. “Achoo!” John sneezed-it was just early spring, and the nights were still cold.
