I rushed to the bar as soon as the meeting was over. The moment I walked in, I saw Scarlett holding a fruit knife to Rita’s neck.
Looking at me in horror, Rita screamed, “Charles, help me!”
grabbed Scarlett’s hand which was holding the knife, and said softly, “Scarlett, put down the knife. I’ll take care of everything, okay?”
Although she still seemed to be angry, she agreed with a nod. Taking the knife from her hand, I pulled her behind me.
The next second, Rita fell to the floor, gasping for air as she covered her bleeding neck.
“You sent someone to slit Scarlett’s throat last time, and now, she has given you a taste of your own medicine. It’s even now,” I said coldly.
“But you saved me…”
“I only saved you for Scarlett’s sake,” I said bluntly, interrupting her.
Rita looked at me in disbelief. “So it really doesn’t matter to you whether I live or die, huh? Why do you have to be so cruel to me? You were once mine, and I should be your woman!”
Holding Scarlett’s hand warmly, I glared at Rita and hissed, “The woman I love is Scarlett!”
“I am just making a fool of myself here then, right?” Rita asked with tears rolling down her swollen cheeks.
“Yes, you are,” I answered without hesitation.
“No, that’s not right. It can’t be…” Rita shouted.
Richard suddenly walked in and said in a respectful tone, “I have handled the people outside.”
I gave him a nod and turned to Rita, only to find her expression darken.
I then reached out my hand to her, and said, “Give me Scarlett’s mom’s earring.”
Rita reluctantly took out the earring from her bag and slammed it against the table.
“Don’t do such stupid things ever again. I won’t let it slide easily if it happens again,” I warned her.
With panic and hatred in her eyes, she looked at me before she left.
Everyone else also walked out of the room, leaving me and Scarlett alone.
“Why did you bring a fruit knife with you?” I asked, holding Scarlett. “Were you worried that I might kill Rita?” she asked in a low voice. “No, I was actually afraid that you might end up hurting yourself by accident,” I explained at once.
Upon hearing that, Scarlett turned to me with a faint smile on her lips.
“I am still not sure about one thing, though. Who is more important to you? Is it Rita or is it me?” 3
“She saved my life back then. And later, she was diagnosed with cancer. The doctor told me that if she was emotionally stable, she would likely recover sooner. Everything I did back then was to return her favor.” With that, I let out a helpless sigh. I
“But… I only care about you now.”
Scarlett buried her head in my chest and said, “Men are such smooth-talkers, aren’t they?”
Just when I was about to say something to her, Spencer walked in, making me angry.
“Didn’t I ask you to take good care of Scarlett? Where have you been?”
“Rita drugged my wine with some sleeping pill. If you don’t believe me, you can ask Vivian,” Spencer explained guiltily, pointing at the woman next to him.
“Well, it is true. His blood does contain ingredients that are commonly found in most sleeping pills,” Vivian answered with a nod.
“Who is she?” Scarlett asked in confusion. “She is Vivian, Spencer’s private doctor. She is specialized in all kinds of knotty and miscellaneous diseases.”
After the brief introduction, Scarlett greeted Vivian with a smile.
“So is something wrong with Spencer?” Scarlett asked with a smile, looking at me.
“He has many problems.” Saying that, I glared at Spencer before I grabbed Scarlett’s hand and walked out of there.
The next morning, Scarlett was going to attend her training course, so I put aside all my work and boarded the flight with her.
As soon as we arrived at the apartment that we rented temporarily, I put away the suitcase and asked her to rest.
“You’re here with me. What’s going to happen to your work?” Scarlett asked me with a smug smile, even though she knew my answer.
I couldn’t help but caress her hair as I said, “To me, my work is never as important as you.
Don’t forget to video call me every day, and don’t turn off your phone, or I will be really worried, okay?”
With that, I walked to the fridge and placed the food that I bought inside it.
All of a sudden, I felt her embracing me warmly from behind, and I stayed silent.
I then turned around and held her. “What’s the matter?”
“I don’t want you to leave. I hate being away from you,” Scarlett said in muffled voice as she rubbed her nose against my chest. 2
“I’ll come to see you next weekend, then,” I said with a helpless sigh as I hugged her tightly.
She nestled in my arms like a little kitten.
“Why can’t you go back with me? I’ll miss you a lot if you stay here alone.” I traced my fingers over her body while hugging her tightly. “Scarlett, look, even my body doesn’t want to be away from yours.”
I then seductively nibbled on her earlobe, making her tremble. But I stopped teasing her because I knew that she would be exhausted from the long flight.
“I’ll take you to bed so you can rest.”
Hearing that, Scarlett nodded obediently.
After tucking her in, I lay down with her and held her in my arms. “I’ll sleep with you. Close your eyes.”
But then she kept nudging my groin with her butt restlessly, and my penis became hard at once.
She was like a siren, who could easily arouse me.
| turned over and pressed her under my body. “If you don’t want to sleep, then we can do something we both love.”
Scarlett immediately raised her hand in surrender. “I’ll go to sleep right now!”
