Chapter 21 

The light streamed through the window, casting its brilliant glow upon Sherri’s eyes, too intense to bear. She winced and squinted. Her head felt as though it were encased in a dense cloud of cotton, causing her great discomfort. 

Extending her arms in a languid stretch, she arched her back lazily, emitting a hearty yawn, and opened her eyes, only to be struck with the scene in front of her. 

“Oh, shit…” she thought. “Where am I now?” 

The surroundings and the furnishings of the room were unfamiliar. It was clearly not her own room. 

Her mind reeled in confusion. 

“Could it be possible that last night I have been taken away by a strange man, and then…” 

Thinking of this, Sherri immediately threw back the covers to inspect the lower half of her body. After ensuring there was nothing wrong and finding her clothes unchanged from the day before, she breathed a sight of relief! 

Involuntarily, she instinctively patted her chest. 

She attempted to make a sound, but her cheeks were so sore that articulating even a single word proved difficult. 

Surveying her surroundings, her gaze collided with an array of vibrant balloons, triggering a fuzzy recollection that played out hazily in her mind. She shook her head and slowly recalled a night of drunken madness. And she even kept blowing balloons all night!

and never come out. 

Anyway, the most important thing was to get out of here first. 

Swiftly rising from the bed, she tidied her attire and prepared to make her stealthy escape. Just as she tiptoed toward the front door, a voice of deep and low magnetism from the living room halted her in her tracks. “Is this how you conduct yourself, Miss Landor?
