Captivation: Want Nothing But You, Chapter 168 Where Is She

“What are you doing?” Ivan coldly asked as he exited the elevator, catching a glimpse of the medicine bottle in the woman’s hand. “Mr. Chavez!” The receptionist gasped and took a step back. Ivan quickly went to her and snatched the medicine bottle from her grasp. “Where did you get this? Who told you to throw it away? Answer me!” Victor had an international video conference earlier. During the meeting, he suffered a stomachache. He asked Ivan to bring the medicine he had kept in his office, but it was unexpectedly all used up.

Ivan called Lukas and asked him to bring some medicine. The latter never showed up, so Ivan decided to get the bottle himself. However, as soon as he stepped out of the elevator, he noticed that the receptionist was about to throw away the medicine Victor had usually taken.

The receptionist stuttered, “I…um… Rachel brought it here. I thought the drug may be poisonous, so I…” “So you decided to throw it away? What gives you the right to decide throwing away Mr. Sullivan’s things?” Ivan narrowed his eyes. “I… I…” The receptionist turned paler by the second, tears running down her cheeks. Clenching the medicine bottle tightly in his hand, Ivan gritted his teeth and said, “I will inform Mr. Sullivan about this. And you… Prepare yourself for the worst. Surely you’ve got some explanation for this. Get out of here if you can’t justify your actions!” After saying that, Ivan turned around and took the elevator, heading straight to the 33rd floor. The receptionist’s face was grim, and she couldn’t stand still. She took a few steps back and fell to the floor after colliding with the trash bin. When Ivan arrived at the 33rd floor, the meeting had just ended. He knocked on the door first before coming in. He then proceeded to pour some water for Victor, and handed him two pills. Victor didn’t get enough rest this week. He had to work overtime for two consecutive days after coming home from Switzerland. The stomachache seemed to worsen and his pallor wasn’t any better. He took the pills and swallowed them without drinking water. “Mr. Sullivan, it was Miss Bennet who brought this medicine,” Ivan said as he placed down the glass of water, glancing at his boss. “Rachel?”

“Yes. I was going to get it myself, but I happened to see the receptionist about to throw the medicine away. I stopped her and asked why she did it. Then she told me Miss Bennet was

the one who sent the medicine.” Victor frowned and pursed his thin lips. What Rachel said to Lukas two days ago suddenly came to his mind. He felt his stomach lurch. “How long has she been gone?” Victor asked in a low voice. “Who?” Ivan leaned closer because he didn’t get who he was asking about.

“Rachel.” “She just left when I saw the receptionist trying to throw the medicine away, so I’d say around five minutes. If you head to her now, you should be able to catch up with her.” Ivan


Victor gave Ivan a cold look as soon as he finished speaking. “Who told you I was going after her?” Ivan gulped and immediately said, “I’m sorry. I thought too much.” Victor’s face remained deadpan. After a while, he stood up, grabbed his coat, and prepared to leave.

Ivan assumed he was going to check the company, so he decided to follow him. “I’m going to rest in the car. Don’t follow me,” said Victor. “Yes, sir.” Ivan came to a halt as Victor entered the CEO’s private elevator. He watched as the doors shut When he saw that the number on the elevator screen was fixed on “1,” Ivan burst into laughter. He never thought that his boss would be so mendacious.

On the other side, Rachel was returning to Sue Garden after leaving the medicine at the front desk. The kitten should be there by now. However, just a few steps out of the door, she heard a familiar voice. “Rachel.”

Rachel turned to follow the voice’s direction, and to her surprise, a familiar figure was walking towards her. “Oh, Roger. It’s you.” Rachel was surprised. She didn’t expect to coincidentally run into him in this place. She noticed he was dressed in a formal suit. “Are you here for business?” “No, I just happened to pass by.” Roger gently smiled at her. He hadn’t seen Rachel since she got hospitalized. He was unsure of how to face Rachel. Being the Jimenez family’s heir, he was too busy to visit her. Clara had told him that Rachel was fine now. When he saw her standing in front of him, safe and sound, he felt even more relieved.

“What a coincidence!” Rachel cheerfully replied. “You…” He wanted to tell her a lot of things, but Roger didn’t know why he couldn’t voice it out loud when Rachel was standing in front of him. “What? Do I look weird? Is there something on my face?” “Nothing.” Roger chuckled. “I just don’t know what to say. I feel a bit guilty. If I had gone with you to go look for Riley, you probably wouldn’t have been in danger. I’m sorry.” 1 Noticing the remorse on his face, Rachel shook her head and smiled. “I’m fine now, don’t worry about it. Besides, she was my responsibility. I was supposed to keep an eye on her, but in the middle of everything, we got split up and it took a long while before we could find her.” “Rachel, it wasn’t your fault. If only I was…” “Hold it!” Rachel interjected, helplessly smiling, “Are we going to just stand here and blame ourselves for what happened? If we keep this up, it feels like I should be sorry for going out that day. If I hadn’t left home, I wouldn’t have met you and Riley wouldn’t have gotten lost.” “I didn’t mean that,” Roger replied. “I know. It’s just how I feel.” Rachel shrugged. “But it’s all in the past now. There’s no point in talking about it and blaming ourselves. This topic is over, okay?” She winked at him. “Fine, you win.” Roger smiled as he looked at her unusually playful expression. “Anyway, I heard from my sister that you’ve already taken an ultrasound. What’s the result?” “A healthy little baby.” A sweet smile curled at the corners of her mouth as she spoke of the baby in her tummy. Roger was silently hurt by this. His eyes fell on Rachel’s abdomen. She was carrying Victor’s child. “By the way, congratulations! Your sister told me that you have officially taken over Jimenez Group.” Roger’s heart skipped a beat when he looked into her beautiful crescent shaped eyes. “That’s it? That’s all I get as your friend?” “Well… How about I treat you to something?” Rachel contemplated for a while. “But it hasn’t been that long since I had breakfast, and it seems a little early to have lunch.” “We don’t have to eat.” Roger fixed his eyes on her face and pursed his lips out of nervousness. “Then, let me buy you a gift instead. What would you like?”



Rachel raised her brows and clocked her head to the side. But before she could speak, Roger suddenly stepped forward and hugged her. She was taken aback and tried to struggle. “Rachel, let me stay like this for a minute. Just this hug is enough.” Roger said gently. Rachel hesitated for a second, pressing her lips together. Then, she raised her hands and returned his hug. “Congratulations, Roger!” “Thank you.” Roger smiled, feeling Rachel’s warmth against him. Victor was standing not far away, watching everything unfold clearly. He clenched his fists, blue veins bulging out at the back of his hands. His face soon became devoid of expression, making him look cold and intimidating.
