“Christine, why do you think of me like that? Charles and I really love each other. Is it wrong for us to want to be together?” Rita burst into tears. People who didn’t know the truth might misunderstand that Christine was trying to break up two love birds unreasonably.
“Christine, calm down. You need to take care of yourself.” Michael looked at her with concern in his eyes.
Christine took the watermelon slice from his hand and threw it at Rita’s face.
“Love? Do you really believe that? It’s just an excuse you found to separate them! Do you even deserve to talk about love? You shameless woman! Do you even know what kind of a feeling that
“Why don’t I deserve love? Is it because I’m sick?” Rita burst into tears, her
whole body trembling. The watermelon juice mixed with her tears as it trickled down her face. “I respect you, because you are Charles’ grandma, and an elder. But you can’t humiliate me like this!” 1
“You ruined their marriage. I have been polite enough until now. If it were someone else, they would have stripped you naked, and thrown you on the streets. And when that happens, people would see how shameless you truly are!” Christine was so furious to see Rita looking at her innocently that she was almost out of breath.
She patted her chest to calm down before she pointed at Rita and continued, “How can you speak with such confidence after you ruined their marriage? Charles has really spoiled you. Just get this shameless ***** away from my face!”
“Ma’am, please.” The nurse walked up to Rita and asked her to leave.
“Don’t be angry. You should take care of yourself. If you lose your temper, then you will only suffer later,” Michael
Wont Sign It comforted Christine, patting her on the back to help her breathe.
Rita looked at Charles as though she was asking for help, but he completely ignored her. He was only concerned about his grandmother.
“Charles, tell Christine that we really love each other,” Rita pleaded with him.
“You should leave, Rita. Grandma is still sick. Don’t make her suffer.”
“Ma’am?” The nurse asked Rita to leave again. Seeing that Charles had no intention of helping her, she had no choice but to leave.
After she left, Christine finally calmed down, held our marriage certificate, and smiled warmly.
Looking at her in such a state, I couldn’t help murmuring
“You pretended to faint on purpose to stop us from getting divorced.”
My voice was not loud, but both the
elders had very sharp hearing. Christine began to groan as soon as I uttered those
“Michael, I feel dizzy. What’s wrong with
“Don’t worry. The doctor said that you will be fine once you’ve rested. Maybe it was the noise that made you feel uncomfortable. Just rest for some time,” Michael said at once.
He then looked at me and Charles, obviously asking us to step outside.
“Alright, Grandpa. Please take good care of Grandma. I have something important to do, so I’m leaving.”
In fact, Charles was the one who had something to do, but he asked me to go with him.
“The marriage certificate is still in Grandma’s hand,” I said right before we walked into the elevator, unwilling to give up.
“I have an important matter to deal with and it can’t be delayed.”
“Then why didn’t you sign it when we were in the lawyer‘s office?” Divorce was just one step away, but my hope was shattered once again.
Now that I had lost the marriage certificate, it would be impossible for me to divorce him.
“Scarlett, is this the way you treat your family? Didn’t you see Grandma fainting just because we mentioned about the divorce?” Charles looked sideways as he cast a cold glance at me as though I was a selfish ***** who did not care about my own family
“But she is just pretending…” I explained guiltily. Charles was even more furious now. He walked up to me and forced me to the corner of the elevator. “Scarlett, how could you say that Grandma, who has always loved you, is pretending to faint and lying to you? How sad would she be if she heard what you just said?” he roared, glaring at me.
I stared back at him. I didn’t believe that
he did not notice Christine acting. How could he lie through his teeth SO confidently?
However, I couldn’t argue with him about it now.
“This is all your fault. Why didn’t you sign it earlier?”
“I could not have. It was not possible for me to do it then.” Charles dialed down his aggressiveness as he leaned against the wall with his hands in his pockets. He seemed to be in a good mood. He did not seem like someone who lost his temper just a moment ago. 1
“I said I won’t sign it because if I did, then Grandpa would kill me!” 1
“Why didn’t I know that you were such a coward?”
“It’s called being smart.” 1
I gave Charles a disdainful look. As soon as the elevator door opened, I walked out first.
“Tell me, what side of me do you like?” Charles asked as he caught up with me and grabbed my hand. I pouted and kept quiet. Glaring at him, I thought to myself that no matter what, I would never get back with him.
Unexpectedly, Charles caressed my lips softly and teased, “You seem to be asking for a kiss from me. Unfortunately, we are in a hospital and there are so many people around us, so I can’t fulfill your wish right now.”
“When did I ask you for a kiss?” I became so furious that I had an urge to beat him up right there.
He had always been so cold to everyone except for Rita, so why was he suddenly smooth-talking to me?
The image I had of him in my mind changed all of a sudden.
“Alright, I won’t tease you anymore. Does your face still hurt?” Charles looked at my cheek where Susan had slapped me. I was not feeling any pain. I just felt
like it was not appropriate for us to be so close to each other at the moment.
“Don’t try to dodge.” I tilted my head to the side, but he forced me to face him.
He tucked a strand of my hair behind my ears and observed carefully. “It’s healing. It won’t be visible if you wear makeup.”
“Can you let go of me now?”
“Sure.” He let go of my face and then held my hand. “Don’t get me wrong, but I am taking part in a program at your TV station, so I wanted to drop you off.”
“You don’t have to, right? People will easily misunderstand it.” After all, the media had just reported that Charles and Rita were going to get married. Moreover, Rita’s wedding dress photo was also leaked to the public.
And Susan had caused a scene about it at the TV station. If he showed up with me to the TV station, then it would just be the evidence that people needed to accuse me of being the third-wheel in their relationship
“Let them misunderstand us.” Charles would not listen to me, no matter what I said. He pulled me out of the hospital and pushed me into his car.
After getting in the car, he leaned over to fasten the seat belt for me. When I didn’t cooperate, he gave me a death glare.
The driver was right in front of us, so I did not want to fight with him. I just hoped to get to the TV station quickly, so that I could be rid of him.
Soon, we arrived. Charles and I got off the car. I quickened my pace, trying to keep distance from him to avoid gossip.
“Scarlett!” But the next second, I heard him calling my name loudly.
When I turned around and saw Charles standing by his car dressed in his signature suit, I could only think of one word… Noble. However, when I recalled the way he had behaved in the hospital, I felt like I was an idiot to associate him with such a quality.
“What’s wrong?” I asked him.
“You forgot something,” he said with a smile.
I looked at him suspiciously as I approached him and asked, “What is it?”
“It’s right here. Come closer.”
As soon as I walked up to him, he suddenly kissed me.
By the time I realized what had happened, he had already turned around and left. I could tell from his brisk steps that he was very happy.
But I was so angry. At the same time, Nina and Abner walked towards me. Nina pointed at me in shock then pointed at Charles
“Scarlett, did you just…”
Abner’s expression darkened.
Looking at them, my heart started racing.
‘**** it! What a jerk he is! Why did he have to kiss me here in public?’
