I've Been There Before (Grace and Caden) novel Chapter 7


"Grace, what do you want to do after getting out of prison? l want to go to Erhai Lake, the beauty of Erhai Lake is clear and clean. The water birds there are very cute, the fish and shrimps in Erhai Lake are very delicious. The sky is bluer, the water is clearer, even the sunshine is warmer than this city.


"1 will work hard to make money, make a lot of money so that I can run a small homestay there. I don't want to make money, just want to face the Erhai Lake every day, with ebb and flow. I don't want to make a lot of money, as long as I have enough food and clothing. I can watch backpackers come and go, come and go occasionally.'


"Grace, I seem to be dying. What can I do? I haven't had time to take a look at the beauty of Erhai Lake."


lt was the sound of natural sadness that Grace could not forget in her life. She hugged the girl and kept using her body temperature to warm up the girl's body which was gradually cold.


When the girl was dying, she stayed in her arms, looked at a small piece of sky outside the tiny bars of the prison with the desire in her clear eyes. She said, "Grace, I have not been to Erhai Lake. The beauty of Erhai Lake is what I saw on TV, newspapers and magazines. I know that even if l get out of prison, I don't have the money to open a small homestay in Erhai Lake. I just want to have this impossible dream when l am dying."


Úp to now, Grace still remembered the longing eyes of the girl in her arms before she died.


Memories were still so painful that the corners of Graces eyes were unknowingly wet. She stretched out her hand and wiped it secretly. As she was creeping on the ground, she touched her left hip quietly, where was empty, with one organ less than normal.


Because of it, she couldn't drink. She must live.


She owed an unpayable debt.

She was guilty and had not been redeemed yet!


She couldn't die yet!

Grace raised her head, looked at Caden, shook her head, and said, "Mr. Shaw, as long as you don't let me drink, anything is okay."


The man's falcon-like eyes narrowed, and the corners of his mouth slowly turned upwards, “Anything is okay?" He said with a hint of danger.

The eldest lady of the James family, had thrown all her self-confidence and arrogance away?

He wanted to see if the one in front of him was still Miss James, the one in his memory.

"Anything ¡is okay except drinking."

"Okay!" There was a flash of coldness fleeting on the man's face. Then he clicked his fingers. With the sound, a figure slowly walked out from the dark corner, “Sir." The man was dressed in a black suit, with a neat and clean buzz cut bowed his head respectfully at 45°. This person should be Cadens bodyguard.

Grace looked at Caden in the dim light in confusion. On the man's perfect golden face, a bright smile like a flower bloomed, and his thin lips moved, “Kiss him."

Grace followed his slender fingers and fixed her eyes on the silent bodyguard in black suit behind him...Suddenly, her eyes widened!
