When I got out of the house, I noticed that Rita’s car was following mine. I didn’t pay that much attention to it, and just went to the bar that Spencer had booked a room in. 1
Upon my arrival, I began drinking in silence. It was clear on my face that I wasn’t very happy. “Dude, you’re about to get married. Why do you look so glum?” asked David.
“What is it? Do you feel pressured now that the day has come, and now you want to dump Scarlett?” Spencer asked, staring at the ring on my finger.
I looked at him in silence for a moment, before saying, “I’m the one who begged her to marry me. I don’t have the right to dump her.”
“Then why are you so upset, man?” Spencer was obviously confused.
After a moment of hesitation, I looked at them and let out a sigh. “Lately, Scarlett has been refusing to have sex with me, and I have no idea why.” 2
Right after I finished my sentence, Spencer and David exchanged glances and burst into laughter.
| stared daggers at these two idiots. I knew that they would react like that. ‘Why am I even friends with them?’
“God! I never imagined that our Charles, the most powerful man among us, would be refused by a woman in bed.” Spencer wiped the tears from the corner of his eyes as he repeatedly patted my shoulder.
“I didn’t tell you that, so you idiots could laugh at me. Help me out here!” 1 Once I said that, the two of them stopped laughing. But I could clearly see that they were still on the brink of laughter, which made me want to beat them to a pulp.
“Don’t be so down in the dumps, my good man. Allow me to analyze the situation for you, and teach you some moves. Just follow my advice, and Scarlett will be the one begging you to have sex. Is it possible that she doesn’t want to do it with you, because you’re not good at it?” Spencer said as he placed his arm around my shoulder.
“I think that might be possible,” David concurred with a smile.
“If you two are just going to make idiot remarks, just get the fuck out of here!” i expressed my irritation towards them, picked up the bottle of beer in front of me, and drank it up.
“Fine, fine. I’ll teach you some of my moves. Always remember that you can’t force a girl to have sex. You need to seduce her, and make her fantasize about your body. By then, even if you don’t take the initiative, she’ll surely want to have sex with you.” Spencer appeared to be serious while he was teaching me.
“Does that even work?” I asked, sounding doubtful.
He patted his chest and said, “It works like a charm, bro! Trust me on this.”
“Have you ever been in love?” I asked, maintaining eye contact with him.
It seemed that my words had rendered him speechless, and his face turned grim.
“Even if I don’t have a girlfriend, I can have sex with any woman I want!” He glared at me with dissatisfaction.
Just before I could ask another thing, the door was pushed open.
Rita entered the room.
Spencer shot her a glance and said, “Sorry, Rita, but you’ll have to come over some other day. We’re discussing something of great importance right now.” “Charles, I need to talk to you,” Rita said to me, ignoring him.
“It’s over, Rita.” I touched the ring on my finger, stood up, and was intent on leaving. However, Rita stood in front of me and began to beg. “Charles, there really is something that I need to tell you!” 1
“We‘ve already broken up. What more do you want from me?”
“I lost my baby with Richard, and you’ve had sex with Scarlett. That makes us even now, right?” Rita shouted hysterically. 2
Her words caused me to frown at her. I didn’t expect that she would say that.
“I have shown you my respect, so that I could repay your kindness. It’s not because I love you.
Rita was still standing in my way, so I couldn’t leave. Thus, I decided to push her aside. “How could you be so heartless, Charles?” Rita looked at me with disbelief, clearly disappointed. 1 “You’ve recovered now. The only reason I helped you was because you were about to die.” “Did Scarlett say something to you?” asked Rita, visibly surprised. 1 “I saw it with my own eyes,” I spat, pushing the door open and leaving.
The moment I walked out, I saw Richard standing by the door. I shot him an indifferent glance and said, “If I were you, I wouldn’t let Rita pester another man.
Richard just smiled bitterly and said nothing.
Last night, I went to bed really early. And when I woke up, Charles wasn’t by my side. I picked up my phone as usual. The headlines were about him again.
As I stared at his pictures with Rita, I felt a little insecure.
Not long after, I went to the bathroom to wash up absentmindedly. Meanwhile, Charles was having breakfast in the living room alone.
I didn’t even greet him. And I chose the farthest seat from him and sat down.
“Those photos aren’t what you think,” he said.
“Are you saying they were falsified?” I said in a listless voice, pushing my phone towards him.
“Look, the pictures are really, but I don’t have any connections to Rita, and I don’t want to be connected to her in any way,” he replied. 1
This time, I didn’t say anything. I just finished my breakfast and went to work.
I didn’t want Charles to drive me to work, but he insisted and I couldn’t do anything to stop him.
When we arrived at the company building, I unfastened my seatbelt in silence, and was about to get off the car.
“Honey, aren’t you going to kiss me goodbye?” asked Charles.
“No.” I didn’t want to indulge him, so I just got off the car directly.
As soon as I entered the building, my colleague told me that I had a visitor waiting for me in the reception room.
Perhaps it was Rita.
When I opened the door, I saw her just as I had expected. She had a triumphant smile on her face, and a man’s coat in her hand.
“Charles was worried that I might catch a cold last night, so he sent me home and gave me his coat,” she said while touching the coat in her hand, deliberately inciting an argument.
“That’s not Charles’ coat,” I sneered, debunking her lie. “You, bitch! Okay, so what? Charles drove me home last night, and told me that he was worried about me.” Rita looked so smug while saying that.
“Yes, but at the end of the night, he still slept on my bed,” I countered.o.
“If you want to keep living, you’d best get your head straight and leave Charles!” Rita could no longer contain her anger, so she started threatening me.
“I see. So, the two assassination attempts on me abroad were arranged by you, huh?” I asked.
Rita crossed her arms, wearing a smug smile. “Yep. It was all me. It’s a pity how useless those idiots were. If I had hired some better assassins, you wouldn’t be standing in front of me safe and sound right now.”
At the end of her sentence, she looked somewhat annoyed.
“Sorry, but I have the luck of the devil,” I replied, shrugging at her.
“I’m warning you to leave Charles at once!” Rita stared daggers at me.
“Hell no! He’s mine.” 1
Rita grabbed my wrist, gritting her teeth. “Were you the one who told Charles that I’ve recovered?”
“Not everyone is as despicable as you are.” With that, I shook off her hand and walked away from her.
