As soon as I got off the plane, I saw the news broadcast, which mentioned that I had celebrated Valentine’s Day with Scarlett.
Looking at our backs in the photo, I felt that we were perfect together and was satisfied.
Hence, I was in a good mood on my way back to the house. “Grandma, I’m back,” I greeted and hugged her warmly. “Didn’t Scarlett come with you?” Grandma asked with dissatisfaction, looking behind
“She will study aboard for a year, but she will occasionally come back for important TV shows,” I explained to her in a hurry, unable to stand her being disappointed.
“Occasionally? You are so useless, Charles! How can you let she live alone there?” Grandma clearly pitied Scarlett and was displeased with me. 1
“Grandma, please try to understand her.” Hearing her complaint, I did not know whether I should cry or laugh.
As Scarlett’s husband, I could not even dare to complain to her…
Seeing that, Grandma sighed helplessly. And I helped her into the room.
“Forget it. Scarlett has her own plans, so just let her do whatever she wants.”
“Grandma, thank you for being so sensible and understanding,” I praised her
“You glib boy.” Grandma punched me gently with a smile. “Hey, did you use protections when you were with Scarlett?” she asked tentatively after hesitating for a moment.
I was stunned to hear that because I was not expecting her to ask me such a question.
“Why are you so nervous and shy? Just tell me.” Her voice was cold now. With a helpless sigh, I said, “No, we didn’t…”
Noticing her strange expression, I couldn’t help but add, “Grandma, can you stop asking such awkward and embarrassing questions?”.
“It’s your fault that I always have to worry about your relationship with Scarlett,” she retorted in a disappointed voice while pounding my chest anxiously.
After giving her repeated nods of agreement and an apology, she finally stopped nagging me.
“Grandma, I’m a little tired now, so I’ll go back to my room and rest.” Saying that, I ran back to my room.
As soon as I sat down in my room, I couldn’t help missing Scarlett. It felt like it had been ages since I last saw her face.
I called her, but she did not answer.
Looking at my phone with annoyance, I gritted my teeth. ‘How can she dare to ignore my call right after I came back? I must teach her a lesson later.’
I called her several times, but there was no answer. 1
I checked Nina’s address and visited her.
“Charles? Why are you here?” Nina asked in surprise when she saw me.
Wasn’t that obvious? Why else would I come to see her?
“Please call Scarlett. She is not answering my calls,” I pleaded.
“Is something wrong?” Nina asked worriedly, but she called Scarlett after seeing how agitated I was.
“Hello, Nina? Shouldn’t you be home enjoying your vacation now? Why are you calling me?” Scarlett asked lazily as soon as the call was connected.
“Why do you think?” I asked lightly, taking the phone from her.
“Why are you there?” Scarlett was indeed surprised.
Upon hearing her question, I gritted my teeth and sneered. “What? Do you think that you can get away from me while you’re working abroad? Why didn’t you answer my calls?”
“I’m still in class, so bye,” Scarlett said quickly and disconnected the call.
Seeing that, I made up my mind to not go easy on her the next time I see her.
I looked at Nina and begged, “Could you please go back sooner? I’ll pay for the ticket.
I knew that I would go crazy if I could not get in touch with Scarlett. “You two… Fine.” After hesitating for a long time, Nina finally agreed.
Just when I was about to go out for grocery shopping, I saw Nina outside the apartment building.
“Why did you come back so soon?” I asked, looking at her in surprise.
There were still a few days left before her class began, so I thought that she would not be back for a few more days.
With a helpless sigh, Nina glanced at the car that brought her there.
Looking at the luxury car, I immediately understood what happened.
“You must answer Charles’ calls immediately in the future,” Nina said helplessly as she carried her luggage and walked towards the elevator.
As soon as she settled down in our new place and took a sip of water, she began complaining. “You don’t know how scary it was when Charles suddenly appeared at my door yesterday. Although he was smiling at me, I felt like I was doomed.”
“Come on, you are exaggerating.” Shaking my head, I could not help but laugh.
Nina stood up from the sofa and said vividly, “Well, you didn’t see how he looked when he asked me to come back sooner. I still feel like if I had dared to refuse him, he would have asked someone to tie me up and throw me on the plane.” 1
“I am sorry, Nina. I spoiled your plan.” After knowing the reason she came back early, I could not help but feel guilty. “It’s alright. Don’t forget to answer his call next time, though.” With a smile, Nina patted me on the shoulder. “Block Charles’ number so that he won’t disturb you again,” I suggested, still feeling a little guilty “I don’t have the guts to do such a thing!” Nina said, looking at me in disbelief. “What are you so afraid of? He is not going to eat you.” I gave her a helpless smile seeing her strong reaction.
“I’m not so sure about that.” With a smile, Nina held my hand and added, “Scarlett, I actually think that Charles really likes you. He was clearly so worried when he was not able to get through to you yesterday, so I can tell that he really cares about you. Why don’t you try to accept him?” 2
“Let’s drop it,” I interrupted her impatiently. “Scarlett, what’s wrong with you? You look so pale and haggard,” she asked worriedly. “It’s nothing. Maybe I’m a just little tired because I’ve been really busy lately,” I said weakly, massaging my eyebrows.
I did not know the reason I had been feeling so exhausted in the past few days, and I also felt sleepy all the time, like I had not slept well enough. s
“Have a rest,” Nina said to me in a concerned voice, and stopped persuading me. “It’s alright. You have come a long way, so you take rest. I need to clear my head.” I put on a smile to assure Nina. 1
“Well, let me know, if you feel uncomfortable.” Nina let out a yawn tiredly, and walked to her room.
Sitting on the sofa alone, I began to feel sleepy again.
Just then, my phone rang.
I answered it and said to Charles angrily, “Don’t make things difficult for Nina anymore.”
“I didn’t make things difficult for her. She volunteered to go back sooner than planned,” Charles retorted, panicking. “Would you have let her go if she had refused you?” I sighed helplessly, feeling that he was not considerate towards other people’s feelings. “Of course, I won’t make things difficult for anyone as long as you answer my calls,” Charles said cheekily and brazenly. I softened my tone and tried to convince him, “Charles, don’t waste your time on me. We can’t be together.” 3 “Do you even know how hurtful your words are?”
Before I could finish my words, he interrupted, “No matter what you say, I am not giving up. I have already told you that I am serious about pursuing you, so I won’t give up easily. As long as I get in touch with you and know that you are safe and sound, I will feel at ease.” 2
After saying that, he hung up even though I did not respond to him at all.
Looking at the black screen, all kinds of emotions crashed into my heart, flooding
