Bye My Irresistible Love, Chapter 232 He Was Unique
The sound of my son’s crying jolted me awake.Upon opening my eyes, I saw James, the source of the noise, staring at me with his innocent eyes. He was looking at me through the fence of the crib.
To be honest, he looked like a miniature version of me. The only difference was that his eyes were similar to Scarlett’s. They were like quiet lakes that pulled people in with just one stare.
“Where is your mommy? Why are you on your own, little man? Hush now, stop crying.” I looked around, but Scarlett was nowhere to be found.
“Ma!” James began to **** on his thumb as tears ran down his eyes. “Mama… Ma!”
“Fine, fine… I’ll take you to your mother.” I picked James up and brought him downstairs.
There, I saw Scarlett talking over the my phone.
When she turned around, her eyes met mine. Instantly, she tensed up, acting a little strange.
“Who are you talking to? And what were you talking about? You didn’t even notice me going downstairs.” I approached her with James still in my arms.
Scarlett finally hung up the phone.
“Something’s wrong with the press. I’ll have to go on a business trip once I’m fully recovered,” she said, cautiously waiting for my response.
“I see,” I replied. I lowered my head and began to play with James.
“Aren’t you going to ask me any details about it?” Scarlett appeared it stop you from going?” I walked towards Scarlett with James still in my arms. James was staring at her with his became incomparably gentle.
“No.” Scarlett planted a kiss on James’ forehead and looked up at me.
“But I can promise you that I’ll call you every day.” I was pleasantly surprised to see her being quite obedient today, and there was a glimmer of joy in her beautiful eyes.
My heart skipped a beat as I raised my eyebrows. “I want a kiss, too.”
I wanted her to seal her promise with a kiss.
“Go wash up. James is getting hungry.” Scarlett pretended not to hear me, intending to take the baby from me as soon as possible.
I had no choice but to pass James onto her, and I pretended to leave. But when Scarlett wasn’t looking, I took the opportunity to lean in and kiss her on the lips.She was taken aback by what I did. “
Charles, stop it!”
“Dop! Dop!” said James.
His eyes wandered between me and Scarlett. And he clapped his hands, mimicking the words that he didn’t even understand.
Both Scarlett and I were so amused that we broke into laughter.It was a wonderful morning.
At long last, I was discharged from the hospital.
For the past month, I had been lying in bed, feeling extremely bored because of my injured leg. The most annoying thing was that Vivian had reached an agreement with my mother, while I was incapacitated. She would take some strange women into my ward from time to time.
After going through the discharge formalities, I stepped out of the hospital. Somewhere nearby, there was a gorgeous, **** lady with heavy makeup on. She was waving at me from in front of a luxurious car.
“Spencer!” she shouted.
It was Lilith.
“Surprise! I’m here to pick you up.” Lilith walked closer towards me and said, “Get in the car. Where would you like to celebrate your discharge from the hospital?”
I took a step back, feeling incredibly disappointed.
‘Even Lilith knows that I’ve been discharged from the hospital. Where is the woman who should be here today?’ I asked in my mind.
“Who are you waiting for?” asked Lilith.
As I looked around, I saw a familiar car pulling over in front of me.It was Vivian!
She rolled down the window of her car, staring at me in silence.
“Are you here to pick me up?” I pretended to be cool and composed.
Before Vivian could answer, Lilith clung to me and held my arm. “Didn’t I tell you that I’d be the one to pick you up today? You can’t run off with someone else!!!!”
After glancing at us, Vivian rolled up her window.
And before I could shake off Lilith’s hands, Vivian had already driven away and soon disappeared from my sight.
‘‘Oh, ****! She probably got jealous.’’
With no other choice, I reluctantly got into Lilith’s car.
“Take me to Mint Bar.”
Lilith started the car and kept on talking throughout the entire journey. All I could think of was the bitter smile on Vivian’s face when she left.
‘‘**** it! She’s the one who pushed me to another woman. What right does she have to react like that?’’
“Spencer, did you even hear me?” Lilith pouted with dissatisfaction.
“I told you that I want a membership card of Mint Bar.”
“Fine, fine. I’ll get one for you,” I replied perfunctorily.
After getting out of the car, I asked one of my staff to take Lilith away and take her through the formalities.
I went to Vivian’s room there to wait for her, but she didn’t show up the entire afternoon. Sadness and anger tortured me, and I didn’t even realize that it was already me. As soon as we sat in the private room, the bar manager opened the door and came in.
“Boss, Vivian is here.”
Almost everyone in the bar knew that I’d been waiting for her for practically the entire day, and yet she had the audacity to bring a date with her here.
“Tell her to come here at once. I want to see her!” I was so ****** off.
“Spencer, are you jealous?” David bantered.
“You know, considering that you’re Vivian’s boss, I figured it would be easy for you to win her over. Boy, was I wrong!”I let out an exasperated sigh.
“Work and love Vivian finally came to my room. When she saw me drinking, her face changed dramatically.
“Why the **** are you drinking? You’ve only just got discharged! Do you want to die or something?”I swiveled the glass of wine in my hand.
“Why isn’t that man with you?”
“Weren’t you the one who asked me to meet you here?”
“I didn’t!” I was so angry that I wanted to smash the glass into pieces.
David nudged me. It was then that I noticed that Vivian’s eyes seemed a little red.
“I just want to ask you why you left me behind at the entrance of the hospital earlier today,” I complained.
“Because I didn’t want to be a third wheel,” said Vivian, crossing her arms.
“You took my mother’s money. That’s why you introduced Lilith to me, didn’t you?”
“If you already know the answer, why do you have to ask?”Vivian grabbed a bottle of wine, poured a glass for herself, and clinked her glass with mine.
“Congratulations. You’re finally discharged from the hospital. I will never disturb you again.”
Having said that, she turned around and was about to leave.
I hurriedly tried to catch up with her, but my leg was still not fully recovered. Seeing that Vivian was about to run away, I shouted, “Ack! My leg!”
Just as I had expected, she stopped and came back to help me. Her face displayed just how worried she was about me.
“Are you okay?” she asked.
I took advantage of this opportunity and placed my arm on her shoulder. Then, I shifted some of my weight on her, bellowing in pain. “Quick, help me up! I’m falling!”
Vivian held onto my waist with both hands to help me stand. I smiled complacently, knowing that my plan had worked.
‘‘This woman can be stubborn, but she’s still a softie,’’ I remarked inwardly.
She was about to help me back to the private room, but then I saw a familiar face in the corner of the bar. It was someone I hadn’t seen for a long time.
It was Rita. She was drinking with another woman.
“Is something the matter?” Vivian stopped as well, following my gaze.
“Take a picture of them and send it to Scarlett. That woman right there talking to Rita, I think that’s one of Scarlett’s workmates. They might be scheming against Scarlett!” I nudged Vivian and she did as I said.
Scarlett received our message quickly.
“Thanks for the warning,” she replied.
Vivian sent her a voice message. “You’re welcome. Spencer asked me to do it. He really cares about you.”
“Why did you have to mention me to her?” I frowned with displeasure.
“Did I say anything wrong? It’s true that you care about her, right?” Vivian thought that she had seen right through me.
“If you’re so smart, can you see who I really care about?” I maintained eye contact with Vivian.
After a brief pause, she replied, “I don’t want to know.”
