“If I become a mistress, doesn’t that mean I’m too beautiful?” Rachel chuckled. “Well, that’s not a bad idea. If I become a mistress, I’ll have a beautiful house and everything I want. Moreover, I don’t have to love him; I just need to have sex with him.”
The veins on Victor’s temples throbbed. He grabbed Rachel’s arm and pulled her to his chest.
His movement was so swift that Rachel had no time to react. She staggered and almost hit Victor’s chest. He grabbed her by the arm a little too hard that veins protruded on the back of his slender hands. The electrifying pain spread across her arm.
Rachel frowned in pain.
And so did Victor.
His fresh wound was forced by his sudden movement. It hurt, but not as much as his heart did.
Now that Rachel was back, Victor hoped that they could slowly rekindle their relationship. He thought she wouldn’t hesitate to come back to him if he swallowed his pride. As soon as Victor woke up a few hours ago, he had been waiting for her to come back to the hospital.
For him, it didn’t matter what happened four years ago. Rachel just needed to come back, and he would gladly accept her.
If she came back, Victor would treat her better and make up for what he owed her. This time, they would live together happily. He would give Rachel the love and wedding she wanted, no matter how grand it would be.
All those dreams crumbled when Victor saw how indifferent Rachel was. He quickly understood that she didn’t want to come back to him. Instead, she wanted to stay away from him as far as possible. That was how much she despised him.
“Since you want to be a mistress so much, come with me and be mine. If you do, all my shares in the Bennet Group will belong to you,” Victor said.
All Rachel had to do was come back, and Victor would do everything for her.
With his eyes fixed on Rachel’s face, Victor continued, “As long as you stay with me, I will give you whatever you want.” But
he heard no response from her.
Rachel lowered her eyes without saying a word.
What he said sounded familiar.
Four years ago, Victor told Rachel the same thing on the cruise ship.
How did she react back then? Like an obedient kid, Rachel agreed. But the night after that, she jumped off the ship in front of Victor. At that time, she was determined to escape from him.
“Your proposal sounds very tempting.” Rachel fearlessly met Victor’s gaze. “But I’m afraid I have to disappoint you this time.”
Then, she withdrew her hand and stepped back, distancing herself from Victor. “You can’t give me what I want, so I won’t agree to be your mistress.”
“What do you want?”
There was a brief silence before Rachel answered, “I want two dead people to come back to life. Abby and my child.”
Victor’s expression immediately changed.
Rachel’s smile gradually faded before she turned around to walk out the door. The two bodyguards standing there didn’t move at all.
“Get out of my way,” she demanded in a flat tone.
But the bodyguards still felt the pressure from her.
They looked at Victor subconsciously. None of them would dare to let Rachel go without their boss’s permission.
“Let her go.” After a long period of silence, Victor conceded defeat for today.
Nonetheless, Rachel was astonished. She thought she would need to use her last card, the wishing pendant in her pocket, to make Victor agree. Surprisingly, she didn’t have to.
How could Rachel not be surprised? Victor wasn’t the type to compromise.
The bodyguards quickly made way for her.
Seeing this, Rachel let go of the pendant inside her pocket and walked forward. She was afraid that Victor might change his mind if she didn’t leave fast. When she reached the door, she suddenly remembered something, so she stopped and turned around.
“Mr. Sullivan, about the shares of Bennet Group…”
“I’ll ask Ivan to contact you tomorrow.”
