In love, never say never chapter 951-952-953-954-955

Knowing that I couldn’t argue against it, I let him have his way. As we made our way down the stairs, I said, “Oh, right. I forgot to tell you that Hannah found her Mr. Right and is going to get married soon.”

He hummed in response. After walking into the garage, he opened the car door for me. “Does John know about it?”

I shook my head. “I’m not sure, but I support Hannah’s decision. A woman’s youth doesn’t last for many years. She gave it all to John, but in the end, her sacrifice was in vain. It’s time for her to move on.”

He cast me a sideways glance, fastening my seatbelt for me. I didn’t quite like the scent in the car, but it was too chilly to roll down the window, so I bowed my head and looked for perfume in his car.

“I thought you would defend your brother,” he commented indifferently.

I let out a snort. “I told him to cherish her, or else he might lose her. He brought this upon himself, so he can’t blame anyone else but himself. It’s pointless to advise someone like him.”

Unable to find any perfume in the car, I let out an exasperated sigh, planning to buy a bottle of perfume and put it in the car.

As he started the car, he saw my forehead crease and asked, “What’s wrong?”

“There’s an odd smell in your car and I don’t like it.” While speaking, I noticed the bouquet of roses on the backseat. My brows drew together. Was it the smell of the roses? But it wasn’t purely floral scent. There was a whiff of female fragrance.

He seemed to have caught it too. With his brows furrowed, he asked, “I guess I’ll have to get flowers myself next time.”

I tilted my head and glanced at him. “Who did you buy this bunch of flowers for?”

The man raised a brow at me. “I bought it for you.”

Pressing my lips together, I said nothing. The car headed toward the hospital. Summer had received a few treatments. Due to the pain, she started resisting it.

Therefore, when the doctor asked her to go into the operation theatre, she couldn’t stop sobbing.

Later, Jared came with two men trailing behind him. It had been nearly a year since I last saw him. The man was dressed in a pale blue shirt. His usual neatly styled hair was replaced by a buzz cut. His skin became tanned, but his dark eyes appeared more resolute now. The moment he met us, his gaze fell on Summer. His eye turned red-rimmed at the sight of the girl who was now as thin as a rake.

Summer was crying her eyes out, protesting against the pain she knew she was about to go through. In the meantime, Jared seemed to have something to say as he stared at her. In the end, he said nothing, but turned to look at the doctor instead. “Whatever the checkup, hurry up and finish it.”

A few doctors followed him and carried out various medical check-ups for Summer. Afterward, Joe came over together with Rebecca. However, judging from their awkward interactions, they probably had a fight.

Jared was still doing the checkup, while Ashton and Joe went away for a discussion.

The feelings Cameron and Zachary felt toward Rebecca were rather strange. Their resentment was complicated, yet excusable. In the beginning, the couple gave her all their love and care just to make amends to her. Nonetheless, they caused me some irreversible hurt and agony.

Though they did that willingly, Rebecca was the one who sowed discord between me and my parents first. Thus, there was no way to judge the situation accurately.

As a result, Cameron and Zachary hadn’t disowned her publicly. That’s why they felt awkward whenever they met her.

Perhaps Rebecca felt the same way as well. The mixed feelings that welled up in her heart were indescribable.

Unable to stand the awkwardness, she walked out of the ward and sat in the lounge in the corridor. I stood up, followed the woman, and sat by her side.

Giving me a side-eye, she said impassively, “Ash gets into trouble whenever he’s with you. You’re such a jinx.”

I couldn’t care less about her ridicule. “I thought you’ve figured out that you’ll never be able to drive a wedge between me and Ashton. You’re still living in your own bubble,” I replied in a flat tone.

“You!” She shot daggers at me with much displeasure. “Why are you so proud of yourself? Do you think that you’re that great? Ash is definitely going to dump you one day.”

“I’m pregnant.” Looking at her ferocious face, I announced calmly with a half-smile. “Ashton and I are getting closer to each other. We’re fated to stay together for the rest of our lives.”

Her expression fell at my words. Suddenly, I felt a twinge of sympathy for her. The woman had been living like a photocopy of someone else, not knowing what she herself actually wanted.

“So what if you’re pregnant? Once I show up, your relationship with him will crumble. Ash won’t abandon or stop loving me. Scarlett, don’t you ever think that you’ll be able to live a peaceful life.”

Staring at her, I was neither furious nor scornful, saying calmly, “Rebecca, have your ever pondered what you really want in life?”

The woman was stunned for a second. Then, she glowered at me and shouted, “That’s none of your business!”

In love, never say never chapter 952

I shrugged my shoulders and said coldly, “Since the day you’re born, you’ve been living under the protection of your parents and your brother, Parker. When they’re gone, Ashton and Joe were there to take care of you. I never understood how a woman can be as ignorant as you. The passing of your parents and brother didn’t knock some sense into you and make you realize that you can’t depend on others forever. What are you going to do if Ashton and Joe are no longer with you one day? Have you ever thought about how you’re going to live? All these years of enjoying what you’ve not worked for causes you to forget how you should live!”

“So what? Even if I know nothing, someone will support and take care of me. This is something that you’ll never have.” She was all puffed up.

I couldn’t help but laugh out loud. “Yeah, you’re right. You indeed have the ability to have someone to support and take care of you. In this world, there’re many incompetent people who can still live very well, just like you. Now I understand why Ashton chose to love and marry me, even though he met you first. Joe used to be so smitten by you, but now he admires the ambitious Kristina even more. Rebecca, you never understood that a man will take care of you solely because of a belief. As time passes, he’ll eventually give up on a worthless woman like you. You’re like a plastic bag which someone threw away. Not only are you useless, but you pollute the environment and are an eyesore as well. People are eventually going to resent you and send you for destruction. I don’t know how you can be so proud of your inability, but let me warn you. Trash is bound to be destroyed one day.”

“You…” Provoked by my harsh words, she jumped to her feet, trembling with rage. Even her finger which was pointing at me quivered. “How dare you humiliate me this way? Who the hell do you think you are? Scarlett, what’s the difference between you and me? You think you’re amazing just because you’re pregnant. Don’t be such a fool. You can still have a miscarriage anytime!”

Watching her lunge at me with a malicious look, I immediately perceived that she was about to do something to me. I became cautious and was ready to defend myself. However, before Rebecca touched me, someone shielded me in his arms and shoved Rebecca onto the floor.

Ashton’s frigid voice sounded beside my ear. “This is the last time I’m going to warn you. If you ever hurt her again, I’ll not let you off the hook.”

Sitting on the floor, Rebecca was dumbstruck. Her reddened eyes were fixed on us. Wait, no. She was looking at Joe, who just came over and stood next to me, staring at her coldly. Usually, in circumstances like this, he would hold her up with much care and concern.

But this time, he kept his hands in the pockets. The way he eyed her was as though he was only looking at a stranger.

Her eyes misted over, and tears escaped the corners of her eyes. “Why does everybody bully me? I’m the one who got hurt. Why do you still bully me? Is it only because I don’t have a family?”

“That’s enough!” Joe suddenly yelled with an icy stare. “Are you done? You’re so disgusting. It’s been over ten years, but you’re still putting on the same show. Haven’t you gotten enough of it?”

Joe’s sudden outburst of anger was out of my expectation, probably Rebecca’s too. The woman gawked blankly at him in utter disbelief. “What are you talking about?”

“Hah!” Joe scoffed. “You heard me, Rebecca. Haven’t you ever feel grossed out by yourself? How long are you going to act pitiful? Do you think that all of us are brainless fools after all these years? I didn’t expose you only for the sake of your brother. Yet, you do it again and again, refusing to change yourself. If that’s the case, go back to J City and never show up in front of me again. Both Ashton and I have done everything we should for you over the years. Just leave and don’t come back to us again.”

Baffled, Rebecca was at a loss for words as she gaped at him. The woman couldn’t believe her ears, so she asked again, “What do you mean?”

Joe frowned, replying in a stern voice, “I’m asking you to stop sticking around in K City so shamelessly. Pack your things and go back to J City.”

In an instant, Rebecca turned ashen-faced, as if she was traumatized. She turned to look at Ashton, trying to choke back her tears. “Ash, are you going to ignore me too?”

The man was still holding me. His gaze was dark and gloomy. “Fifteen years ago, I promised your brother to take care of you, because you were still a minor then. Now that you’re an adult, you’ve nothing to do with me anymore.”

I was mildly surprised that Ashton was willing to let go of her. Nonplussed, I stared at him. He noticed it and placed his hand on my tummy. A warm, fuzzy feeling shot through me.

Suddenly, a rueful smile spread across Rebecca’s face. “Now I know that everything is fake. Your promises, affection, love are all fake. You liars and hypocrites!”

In love, never say never chapter 953

My brows snapped together at her words. I just couldn’t fathom her mentality. No matter how Parker entrusted her to Ashton and the others, more than ten years had passed, and they all had their own families now. Besides, they had provided and taken good care of her as much as they could. In my opinion, Ashton and Joe had done more than enough.

How could Rebecca take it as a matter of course? The woman was so self-centered to the extent that she thought their lives revolved around her. Even biological siblings had no obligation to take care of one another for life, not to mention that Ashton and Joe were not related to her by blood.

That was how selfish Rebecca was.

Holding Ashton’s hand, I went into the ward. There was no sign of Jared, so I became worried. “How’s the checkup? Where’s Jared?”

Helping me to take a seat, he brushed my question aside. “You’re pregnant now, so regardless of what’s happening around you, you’ve to take the baby and me into consideration. Can you do that?”

I froze at his words. Only then I noticed that his face was a little pale. Perhaps Rebecca’s attack scared the daylights out of him. I couldn’t help but smile. “Actually, I had seen it coming and was ready to defend myself, so Rebecca wouldn’t have been able to hurt me or the baby. I didn’t put myself and the baby in a dangerous situation.”

Exasperated, he sighed softly. “Even so, we can’t afford to let such things happen again. Most of the time, a lot of things are not within our controls.”

Nodding my head, I asked him about Jared again. “How are things going at Jared’s end?”

He heaved another sigh. “Be patient. He just finished the checkup. The results will be released only after one or two days.”

I was a little anxious. “But Summer’s illness can’t wait any longer. By the way, has the hospital found a suitable kidney for her?”

For a split second, the man appeared slightly dejected at the mention of this issue, but he quickly regained his composure and said, “Don’t worry. Trust me, I’ll definitely find a suitable one.”

I knew he had been asking around, but I was overcome with anxiety about Summer’s condition. Though she had gone through a few rounds of chemotherapy, the result was not ideal. Each therapy was a torment for her. Feeling that I was undeniably responsible for her illness, I didn’t even have the courage to see her now.

Even if I threw a fit in front of Ashton, it wouldn’t help a thing. Pulling myself together, I looked at him. “What happened just now? Hasn’t Joe been very caring towards Rebecca? What’s with the sudden change of attitude? What’s going on?”

He pulled me into a hug. “I guess he ran out of patience. Rebecca is unwilling to marry him, yet she depends on and clings to him. Both men and women naturally become worried when they reach a certain age. Joe’s parents have been urging him to get married, and he himself becomes anxious as well since he has waited for years.

“In fact, Joe’s a conservative man on the inside, so he’s of the same mind as his parents. He feels everyone should do what they’re supposed to at the right time. He isn’t young anymore, but Rebecca keeps wasting his time and refuses to tie the knot with him. That makes him feel even more restless than he already is. Besides, I just told him that you’re pregnant, which means everyone around him is settling down and starting a family.”

As I listened to his words, a sudden realization hit me. Ashton seemed to have become a different man. Previously, he was driven by dreams and ambitions, aspired to scale new heights. He was like an emperor who was eager to expand his territory. But now he put all his heart and love into this little family of ours.

Seeing me staring blankly at him, he rubbed the tip of his nose bashfully. “Why are you looking at me like that?”

I chuckled. “I’m just thinking that I have to be a good mom, and I can’t be as wayward and reckless as I used to be.”

He chuckled. “Hmm? Are you going to be a good mom only?”

“Of course, an amazing wife too!” I snuggled up to him. “Just wait till Summer recovers, and the baby is born. I am sure everything will be fine”

We had been waiting for things to fall into place. Other than waiting, there was nothing else we could do.

Thinking of Joe again, I asked, “After chasing Rebecca away, is Joe going to look for a socialite in K City and get married?”

Ashton kept quiet for a moment. Suddenly, his expression grew solemn as he gazed at me and said, “Sometimes, love and marriage are entirely two different things to men.”

Stupefied for a few seconds, I grasped the meaning of his words. He was right. No matter how much Joe loved Rebecca, there was no way she could be one of the Quinns because of her background. We could never deny that in marriage, both parties had to be a good match.

Other than love, there was nothing useful that Rebecca could offer. His family wouldn’t be able to accept her, let alone the ambitious man himself. She was like a toy which a child had. Once he grew up, the toy would be put away, regardless of how good it was.

In love, never say never chapter 954

Without a word, I lifted my head and gazed intently at Ashton.

As my eyes were glued to him for quite some time, the man became uneasy and asked, “What’s wrong?”

Pressing my lips together, I asked in a serious tone, “How about your love for me? What is it based on?” I believe in utilitarianism. There was no way for two people to get together solely out of love. There must be other determining factors as well.

With his dark gaze riveted on me, the man didn’t utter a word, deep in contemplation. After what felt like an eternity, he finally spoke. “I feel lucky to have you. When I was in my twenties, I thought that love could last forever. Whether you’re an orphan or a daughter of the Moore family, I’m fine with it as long as it’s you. But now I think differently. I love you, because you’re the one I fell for since I was young, and you’re my wife. I’m grateful for your birth and your identity. If it weren’t for these, we would’ve to face countless hurdles and troubles. Because of whom you are, we’re able to spend the rest of our lives loving and taking care of each other in peace. Other than that, others will look up to and find us an enviable couple. You’re exceptional, and I’m pretty good too. That’s enough for us to live this life together.”

If love was getting together against all odds when we were young, then marriage was deciding to go through every trivial and mundane matter in life together. However, some had a chaotic married life, while the others treat one another with respect.

Ashton and I were the latter. Treating one another with respect was the best way to show that we cherished our marriage.

Leaning against his chest, I smiled faintly. “Ashton, moving forward, I need your guidance.”

He gave me a warm, gentle smile. “Please bear with me too, Mrs. Fuller.”

After leaving the hospital, Ashton and I went to the office. Every day, the man ran around between the office and the hospital. He barely had time to rest because of work and Summer’s condition.

Arriving in front of the office, I got out of the car and waited for him in the lobby while he parked the car.

It was lunchtime, so the lobby was crowded. At the entrance, a striking red sports car pulled over, drawing the attention of countless women nearby.

I couldn’t resist glancing at it too. The woman who got out of the sports car was none other than Rachel, whom I had not seen in a while. Thinking that she was still in A City, I didn’t expect that she was back.

The gorgeous woman and the sports car were an extremely eye-catching combination. The man in the car was dressed casually, looking like someone from a wealthy family in K City.

Rachel’s outfit was unusually seductive today. A black midi dress with a pair of boots made her legs appear long and slender. She also wore a luxurious and stylish white coat, looking alluring yet elegant.

She seemed to have gone out for lunch with that man. Getting out of the car, she brazenly strode over to the driver’s seat and kissed the man on the lips. After that, she gracefully sauntered into the office.

I was surprised that Rachel found a new boyfriend.

Though we were not enemies, I didn’t really want to see her. Holding a leather bag in her hand, she raised her brows and said, “Are you here to see Mr. Fuller? I think he’s not in the office.”

I nodded. “We just came back.”

“I heard about your daughter. I guess you got a lot on your plate recently,” she said with a shrug.

Instead of denying it, I hummed in response, not wanting to tell her more about it.

With her brows raised, the woman seemed carefree as she explained, “You don’t need to be so defensive in front of me. Like I said, if we’re no longer love rivals, I’ll admire you a lot. The man in the car is my boyfriend. Let me introduce him to you one day. Don’t be so antagonistic toward me. Although your husband is outstanding, he has no feelings for me, so I better keep my options open.”

Her words surprised me, but I remained silent. Nonetheless, she seemed unfazed by my aloofness. “I guess you need more time, but please don’t stay at odds with me. We woman shouldn’t be against each other, am I right?”

I pouted my lips, thinking about it briefly before replying, “You know I couldn’t care less whether you love Ashton. I’m absolutely confident that he will love me forever. It’s just that I’m surprised to see you getting a new boyfriend so soon.”

She shrugged nonchalantly. “What’s so surprising about that? Every woman has a dream of marrying into a wealthy family, and the same goes for me. Other than the Fullers, there’re many wealthy families in K City, so I changed my target. He’s the third son of the Quinn family. Though the Quinn Corporation is no match for Ashton, it isn’t too bad. He’s the one who gave me all my branded clothes, house, and car. After experiencing a lavish lifestyle, I’ve come to the conclusion that one must make as much money as possible, especially a beautiful woman, who can make a fast buck with her beauty.”

My brows knitted together. I couldn’t bring myself to agree with her principles, so I kept quiet.

With her eyes fixed on me, she asked nonchalantly, “Do you look down on women like me?”

I shook my head. “Everyone has their own ambitions and pursuits, so I have no right to comment on yours.”

Pursing her lips, she shrugged. “Alright, you’re not as annoying as I thought. I’m not going to snatch your man away from you, so you don’t have to put your guard up against me.”

In love, never say never chapter 955

I just shrugged in reply, not wanting to say more.

As I watched her walk gracefully into the elevator, I couldn’t help but muse over the life she had made for herself. For someone as ambitious as Rachel, even if she weren’t born with a silver spoon, she’d have done everything in her power to get ahead in life.

Even though one might find some of her methods morally ambiguous, the fact remained that she had both beauty and brains to help in the pursuit of her ambitions.

She was very similar to Cameron in that respect. Everyone had their reasons for chasing money. Some did it purely for the thrill, while others did it so their descendants could live better lives. As long as you were capable and weren’t using illegal or ruthless means to obtain your wealth, there was no reason not to be a little more ambitious than your peers.

“Mrs. Fuller, you’re here!” A chirpy voice behind me pulled my wandering mind back. I smiled when I saw Stella walking toward me. “Yes, I came with Ashton. Have you just had lunch?”

Stella nodded eagerly. “Have you and Mr. Fuller eaten too?”

“Not yet. We came straight from the hospital.”

Just then, Ashton came back from parking his car and ushered me to follow him.

Stella quickly stepped in and said, “Mr. Fuller, since you haven’t had lunch, shall I buy some back? Mrs. Fuller, what would you like to eat? Let me know, and I’ll get it for you!”

I shook my head meekly as her enthusiasm and offer took me back by surprise.

“Don’t be a stranger, Mrs. Fuller! As Mr. Fuller’s secretary, this is all part of my job scope. Isn’t that right, Mr. Fuller?” she said as she smiled at Ashton.

As someone who never talked much to acquaintances, Ashton just hummed in response and looked at me. “Let Stella get it. What would you like to eat?”

Even though my mind was a complete blank, I didn’t want to disappoint Stella. “Anything’s fine. Thank you, Stella!”

“Okay, Mrs. Fuller. I’ll be right back!” she replied cheerily and bounded off.

I couldn’t help but smile at Stella being so joyful and lively. It was nice to be around people who gave off such positive energy.

“Do you feel like having sushi?” Ashton asked once we got into the elevator.

I hadn’t even thought about sushi until he mentioned it, and now I felt myself craving it. But I didn’t want to bother Stella by telling her I had changed my mind, so I quickly brushed the thought aside.

When Ashton took his phone out, I panicked a little, thinking he was about to order Stella to buy me sushi. “No, don’t trouble her. We can get it tonight after work,” I pleaded.

Ashton raised his eyebrow and smirked. “I just want to ask Joseph about the situation in Moranta.”

Oh my goodness, it was all just my wishful thinking.

As I turned red and lowered my head in embarrassment, I caught Ashton chuckling at me from the corner of my eye. Well, at least one of us finds this funny.

Once we got to his office, Ashton started on his never-ending pile of work while I sat on the sofa playing with my phone.

I was casually scrolling through videos and enjoying myself when Armond suddenly texted: I miss you. Reading that made me almost fling my phone out from a mix of shock and disgust.

I calmed myself down and replied with a single question mark. Armond immediately texted back: What do you think Ashton would do if he knew I like you?

His words irked me, but I forced myself to reply: He’ll go after you. No questions, no hesitation.

Again, he replied within seconds: Hahaha! This game is getting more and more exciting. I wasn’t lying when I said I could help your daughter. One word from you, and she’ll be able to have the kidney transplant immediately.

I was so appalled and infuriated by his arrogance that I had to steady my hands to fire back the next text: Don’t be disgusting!

Whether he had a suitable kidney for Summer or not, I was still determined to keep my distance from hypocrites like Armond.

I was still mulling over Armond when the office door opened. Stella walked in with boxes of food, still smiling as radiantly as ever. “Mr. Fuller, Mrs. Fuller, lunch is here! You must be starving!”

Grateful for the distraction, I kept my phone and thanked her. My gaze unintentionally fell on the watch she was wearing when she handed me the food, and I was a little startled by what I saw.

“You’re too kind, Mrs. Fuller! I’m only doing my job,” she replied politely before making her way out.

I hesitated for a bit but eventually gave in to my curiosity. “Your watch is gorgeous. It suits you really well.”

She was taken aback by the sudden compliment but quickly recovered. “Thank you. It’s not too expensive, so it’s suitable for us office workers.”

“It looks very good on you,” I said with a nod.

She smiled without saying much more and left the room.

My mind was starting to wander again when Ashton reeled me back in. “What are you thinking about?” he asked.

He pulled me toward the sofa and sat us both down. When he started taking the food out, I was filled with a pleasant surprise when I realized there was sushi. “You told Stella?”

He beamed at me as he replied, “You had a craving for it, so I wanted to satisfy you.”
