I watched Scarlett leave, unable to believe her words.
If she hadn’t told Charles, then how could he know about it?
If it had not been for that, then he would not have been so cold to me, so I blamed Scarlett. 2
While I was thinking of what to do next, my phone rang.
“Mom, what’s the matter?” I asked in an unpleasant voice as soon as I answered the call.
“Scarlett has bewitched your dad, and he has packed his luggage and moved out!” my mother complained in tears. 1
“What?” I asked in shock.
“It’s true. He moved out today, saying that he would never return!” she said, choking back her sobs.
I stifled my impulse to rush out and get even with Scarlett. Thinking of Charles, I promised to my mother, “Don’t worry. I will make dad change his mind.”
“You must make him come back, dear.”
“Don’t worry, Mom, I will.” Saying that, I hung up the phone.
However, I couldn’t suppress the joy in my heart. I told myself that Scarlett was doomed now.
How dare she take away Charles from me? I wanted to see how she was going to compete with me now.
After leaving the TV station, I called Amy. 1
Learning that Charles had gone out for lunch with someone else, I took Richard with me to look for Charles in the restaurants near his company.
Even after searching for a long time, we could not find Charles, so Richard could not help but ask, “Maybe, he is not in the area?”
“As far as I know, Charles won’t go too far to have lunch during work hours, so he must be somewhere around here.” With a frown, I continued to look for him.
“Over there!” Richard suddenly pointed at a restaurant.
I looked towards the direction and saw Charles sitting by the window. Seeing him, I could not wait to walk into that restaurant.
“Charles, Scarlett has seduced my father.” Without hesitating, I got to the point at once. 2
Charles frowned and remained silent.
“Rita, don’t talk nonsense,” Spencer persuaded me. I looked at him coldly and said in a sarcastic tone, “What? Did Scarlett seduce you too? Why are you speaking up for her?” 1
“You are becoming increasingly unreasonable.” Spencer frowned unhappily, looking at me.
“It’s not that I am being unreasonable; you’re the one that’s guilty here,” I retorted, snorting.
Spencer shook his head and stopped talking.
I turned to Charles again, and said, “Scarlett lied to you. She is a skittish woman. She said that she wanted to hold a wedding with you while seducing my father, which is the reason he has now packed up his things and moved out! She was probably planning to have an affair with my dad when you are not home after you two are married.” 1
“Rita, I think that you’re mistaken. Scarlett is not that kind of a person.” David also tried to defend Scarlett.
“Scarlett is really something! Looks like she has bought you two off!” | glanced at David and Spencer with a disappointed look before I turned to Charles and said, “Charles, are you sure you want to marry a shameless woman like her?”
“Rita, stop it!” Spencer said indifferently. 1
“She seduced my father! Why shouldn’t I say it? Although a lot of things between us have changed, I can’t watch you get deceived by Scarlett and do nothing, Charles.” Saying that, I grabbed Charles’ hand. “Let’s start over, okay? Since Scarlett likes seducing men, let her…”
As soon as I said that, I heard a loud noise. Charles smashed the glass on the floor. Frightened, I stood still.
I began to gasp in fear. Looking at the broken glass on the floor, I stared at his furious face.
“What did you just say? I dare you to say it again!” He looked at me indifferently with his voice as cold as ice.
I opened my mouth subconsciously. “Scarlett seduced my father, and now he has moved out. Scarlett is a dissolute woman. She doesn’t deserve you…”
“When Spencer reminded me earlier, I thought that he was probably overthinking it.” Charles looked at me with disappointment.
“What?” I asked.
Charles looked at me with his razor sharp gaze that could rip me to shreds. Slander “It was Nate who went to Scarlett. When did she ever seduce him?” he asked coldly.
“It’s not like that…” Looking into his eyes, I felt my heart twist into a knot and I could not help but feel nervous.
“Did you see Scarlett seducing your father with your own eyes?” Charles asked with a sarcastic smile.
“No,” I replied, shaking my head.
“Did your father tell you that? Or did Scarlett?” Charles continued to question me.
“Charles, she has deceived you! She’s not as innocent as she seems. She is a shrew woman, who is good at seducing men…” | explained in a fit of panic, hoping that he would see her true colors.
“Rita, you are unbelievable,” Charles sneered.
“Charles, I’m not…” Met with his indifferent expression, I was flustered.
“Scarlett used to tolerate you because of me. But from now on, I’ll side with her and fight back, ” Charles said before stood up to leave.
“Tell your father that he and I are at daggers drawn!”
“Scarlett seduced my father because she hates me. She kept pestering you while doing such shameless things. Don’t you understand? She is a ****,” I immediately explained, seeing that he was about to leave, I also grabbed his sleeve. 1
Charles shook off my hand coldly and smiled. “It would be great if she really hated you. Ever since proposed to divorce her, she has never pestered me. I was the one who pestered her and begged her to stay.”
“Charles, what are you even talking about?” I looked at him in shock.
“I love Scarlett, but I did not know how to express my love for her before,” Charles said affectionately with a hint of tenderness, which he had never shown me before.
“No, that’s not true, right? You are just lying to me, aren’t you?” | asked, grabbing his wrist, unable to believe my own ears.
“It’s none of your business. Don’t mess with Scarlett anymore, or I’ll be forced to teach you a lesson. You saved my life, but you also played tricks on me for so many years. We are even now.” 2
Saying that, Charles removed my hand from his and walked away without turning back. No matter how many times I shouted, it was of no use.
I collapsed to the floor with tears streaming down my face.
“Charles hates betrayal and deception the most,” Spencer reminded.
“I just love him too much. I can’t lose him,” I retorted emotionally.
“Then why did you sleep with someone else? I really don’t understand you.” Spencer looked at me with a hint of sarcasm in his eyes.
“It was a mistake,” | explained in a hurry.
“I don’t care if it was a mistake or not, because it’s none of my business.”
“I really love him. I can’t live without him!” | could not help but turn to the direction that Charles walked.
“Charles said those things to you not only because you lied to him, but also because Nate approached Scarlett with an ulterior motive,” David explained slowly. “No way!” | retorted harshly, stunned by his words. “Nate used the head of the TV station to arrange a date with Scarlett and said that he wanted to keep her as a mistress.” 1
“That’s impossible! Scarlett must have seduced my father,” I said firmly, ignoring his words.
“Rita, let go of Charles. You two just can’t be together anymore.”
“Over my dead body! I know that you are trying to help Scarlett by persuade me,” I said stubbornly, resenting Scarlett more than ever.
After all, she was the reason my life ended up being so miserable.
