Scarlett’s POV: A few days had passed since that incident, and while I was enjoying the short span of peace, something happened again.
Charles was involved in a scandal again.
According to the news reports, Lily would star in a new film, and Charles’ company was the investor of the film. And people were becoming more curious about the relationship between them because of what happened before.
While I was watching the news, the doorbell rang all of a sudden.
When I opened the door, I saw Rita standing outside.
“What’s up?” I asked coldly. >
“I already warned you that you will also be facing Charles’ ruthlessness one day. How does it feel to know that your husband is involved with another woman?” Rita said with a smug smile.
“Not bad at all,” I replied with an indifferent shrug.
“Lily slept with Charles,” Rita said with a smile, staring at me.
“Were you there when it happened?” I asked with a smile.
Hearing that, she handed me a photo of Lily and Charles entering a hotel. “If you don’t believe me, then you should take a look at this.”
| casually glanced at it and commented, “It’s a great photo, very high-definition, but I am afraid Charles is not as photogenic as you’d expect him to be.”
“Crazy bitch!” Rita spat in anger before she turned around and walked out of there.
Looking at her receding figure, I frowned. Although I believed my husband, I would be lying if I said that I was not concerned.
As the thought lingered in my mind, I decided to book a flight back.
That afternoon, while David, Spencer, and I were playing tennis, we bumped into Lily.
“Would you like to play tennis with me?” she asked with a smile. “No, let’s go.” I tossed my racket away and walked out of there at once.
But later that evening when we went to a bar for some drinks, we ran into her again.
She was so annoying! “Would you like to have a drink with me?” Asking me with a smile, she was about to sit down next to me.
“Fuck off!” I said irritably, looking down at the wine in my glass.
However, Lily continued to smile at me as she said awkwardly, “I’m really bored all alone. Can’t you let me have one drink with you?”
“If you feel that lonely, then you should go and find yourself a gigolo. Stop pestering me,” ! retorted coldly before I finished my wine.
Stunned by my words, Lily left, holding her wineglass.
“Did you have sex with her or not?” David asked in a curious tone as soon as she walked away. :
“What do you think?” I asked him flatly, glancing at him.
“Well, aren’t you worried that Scarlett might misunderstand you?”
“A clean hand wants no washing. Besides, Scarlett is not that narrow-minded.” That evening, I had a lot to drink, so I felt quite dizzy on my way home.
I wanted to talk to my wife over a video call, but she did not answer.
I could not help but frown when my call was ignored.
I figured that she must be busy with her classes as it was daytime in her place. But I felt a little upset when I thought that she must really consider her training program to be more important than me.
And the longer I dwelled on that thought, the more upset it made me feel. I tossed my phone on the table casually and fell asleep on the couch.
When I woke up the next morning, a sharp headache because of the hangover jolted me back to reality.
I sat up, holding my head between my palms when I noticed a bag on the armchair next to me.
It was Scarlett’s bag!
Seeing that, I rushed upstairs with joy. Scarlett’s POV:
Charles’ hurried footsteps and the sound of the door opening woke me up. When I opened my eyes, all I could see was his smile. “When did you come back?” he asked, looking at me.
“Last night. I thought you’d be home.” Clearly, I was a little unhappy.
“Well, I did come home last night, but I did not know that you were upstairs, so I slept in the living room,” Charles explained at once.
“I am still a bit sleepy, so I want to rest a while longer. Can you please go out now?”
I tossed over and was about to go back to sleep when Nina called me.
“Scarlett, the Internet is in an uproar. Go and check it out,” she said in a fit of panic.
After I hung up, I checked the news, only to find photos of Charles and Lily at the tennis court and in a bar.
Without saying a word, I put my phone in front of him.
“I am gonna kill those paparazzi!” Charles roared.
With a tender look in his eyes, he turned to me and added, “They’re all wrong! They’ve misunderstood what was going on. I promise to treat you to a nice dinner tonight to apologize, okay?” ..
Ignoring him, I put down my phone, and went back to sleep. After the nap, I felt much better, but deep down, I was contemplating how I was going to deal with Charles that night.
It was almost dinnertime when he finally called me and said, “I am so sorry. This meeting is taking longer than I expected, so I am afraid that I might not be able to pick you up. So I am sending my driver to pick you up and drive you to the restaurant.”
“Okay,” I replied, sulking. I was obviously still mad at him.
When I arrived at the restaurant, Charles was still not there yet, but I happened to meet Abner.
“You’re back?” he asked happily.
“Well, I came back last night.” I smiled at him as I nodded.
“Didn’t Charles come with you?” Abner seemed to be confused.
“He has a meeting. He should be here soon,” I said with a smile.
“Then would you like to have a drink with me first?” Abner suggested with a smile.
After that, we settled on the bar counter and each ordered a drink. He went to the restroom after we chatted for a while, but he did not come back for a long time.
Seeing that, I was a little worried, so I called him.
“Scarlett, well…” I felt that his voice sounded a little strange over the phone.
“Abner, are you okay?” I asked in a worried tone.
“I’m… Well… I’m fine. You should go and have dinner with Charles first. I… There’s something that I have to deal with.” Saying that, he hung up.
However, I was still worried about him, so I got up and walked to the bathroom to find him.
“Abner, are you there?” I called out to him as I stood outside the bathroom door.
The next moment, a hand suddenly reached out and pulled me in.
“Abner? Are you all right?” Only when I saw him I was able to breathe a sigh of relief.
However, what happened next stunned me. He held my hand and massaged it gently. His eyes seemed to be a bit blurry and his face was flushed.
‘Damn it! He’s drugged!’
I tried to go and look for a doctor, but he held my hand tightly and would not let me go.
“Abner, let go of me. I’ll go and find you a doctor.” I tried take my hand away, but it was all in vain.
“Scarlett, I like you so much. I really do,” Abner said in a daze before he leaned on me. •
I immediately came to my senses and was about to push him away when I saw the door being kicked open from the outside.
