Never Late, Never Away Chapter 716

As he spoke, Hunter turned around to help Vivian out of the car. When he finally laid eyes on her, however, he got the shock of his life. He hadn’t managed to get a good look at her before, but she looked so ghastly now that he couldn’t help but feel stunned.

Every inch of Vivian’s skin was covered with a strange shade of red, and her forehead was practically dripping with sweat. Her eyes were glazed over, and it was obvious that she was about to collapse soon.

He got off the car immediately and opened the door on her side. As he half-carried her off the car, he asked, “Vivian, are you alright? How do you feel right now?”

Vivian could hear a small buzz in her ear, as though someone was talking to her. However, try as she might, she couldn’t make out a single word he was saying to her.

Vivian forced her eyes open, trying to see who was standing in front of her. However, she could only see a blurry, faceless figure hovering before her. His body felt so comfortable against her own…

As Vivian continued to gape blankly at him, her legs giving out beneath her slowly, Hunter wondered if she had heard a single word he said.

However, he didn’t have time to think about this sort of trivial matter now. It was more important for him to go and fetch a doctor for her. She was burning up quite severely, and he was afraid that she might suffer some form of brain damage.

He carried her in his arms and flew towards the front door of the Morrison residence. “Is anyone in? Open the door quickly! Is anyone in?”

Hearing Hunter’s loud voice, a maid hurried to open the front door immediately. Seeing how ghastly Vivian looked, the maid looked rather stunned. “What—what’s wrong with Ms. Morrison?”

“She’s having a very high fever, and I’m afraid she’s going to collapse soon. I’ll send her to her room first. Go and give the doctors a call immediately!” Hunter ordered the maid immediately.

“Sir, may I know your name?” Despite the urgency in Hunter’s voice, the maid didn’t leave straight away. After all, she didn’t know who this guy was, and it might be dangerous for her to leave him alone with Vivian.

“I’m a friend of Vivian’s. Don’t worry. I won’t harm her or anything. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have sent her back to her house, would I?” Hunter explained hurriedly. “Go and find a doctor, quick! I’m afraid the fever might cause some damage to her brain.”

His words did make some sense. Hearing this, the maid let down her guard and said, “Alright, I’ll go fetch a doctor immediately. Go upstairs to the second floor and turn left into the second room you see. That’s Ms. Morrison’s room. Please take good care of her, Sir. I’ll be right back.”

“Be quick, be very quick!” After shooting one last reminder to the maid, Hunter carried Vivian upstairs to her room immediately.

This feels so comfortable. In her drug-induced haze, Vivian rubbed her face against Hunter’s neck, and a satisfied expression appeared on her face. This feels so cooling. Why does this person feel so cool?

He kicked the door open and set Vivian down on the bed gently. “Vivian, wait a while, alright? I’ll fetch some cold towels for you.”

Just as he turned to leave, Vivian enveloped him in a hug. “It’s hot… It’s so hot… Don’t go… If you go, I’ll feel so uncomfortable…”

As she spoke, Vivian’s hand crept slowly around his body. She had already lost every last ounce of logic—all she knew was that this person felt so cooling to the touch and that touching him made the burning sensation in her disappear…

Seeing the lust-filled expression on Vivian’s face, Hunter finally realized that something was wrong. She didn’t have a fever—she had been drugged!

This was definitely Evelyn’s doing. Hunter balled his hands into fists. He was sure Evelyn had something to do with this. No wonder she had asked him to come and pick her up just now—this had been her plan all along!

“Vivian, can you hear me?” He took hold of her hands and shouted next to her ear. “Hold on for a while more. The doctor is on his way!”

“Hot… This feels weird… I want…” Vivian tried desperately to free herself from Hunter’s grip, sounding as though she was about to burst into tears. She started shivering horribly, wanting to experience that relieving coolness again.

Since her arms had been restrained by Hunter, she could only press her face against his cheeks to seek relief. “It’s so cold… So comfortable… Give it to me right now…”

She continued rubbing her body against his, growing increasingly more aggressive. As her hot breath reached his ears, Hunter felt a shiver run down his spine.

Swallowing desperately, Hunter tried to dispel the troubling thoughts in his mind. The woman he had a crush on was right next to him—if he reached out his hands, he could have her right now.

Seeing the disconcerted look on Vivian’s face, Hunter felt a little conflicted. They were the only two people in the house now—if he wanted to, he could have the woman he loved immediately. This might be his only chance.
