In love, never say never novel read online free chapter 108
All of a sudden, his phone rang. I had no interest in his phone calls, but he seemed to enjoy putting his phone on loudspeaker recently.
He answered the call, and the person on the line started crying. “Ash, Scarlett reported me to the police! Help!”
Rebecca? At this hour?
I thought she would have called earlier when the cops got her.
Ashton shot me a stare, and I just shrugged my shoulders. “What was I supposed to do? She appeared in my house without my permission.”
He massaged his forehead, obviously unsure about how to handle the situation. “It’s late now. Just stay overnight in the police department. I’ll ask Joseph to get you the next morning.”
“Ash…” Before Rebecca could say anything, the man ended the call.
He then looked at me, clearly not knowing what to do with me. “Did you have to report her to the police? Why couldn’t you just have changed the lock?”
I lowered my eyes and examined my nails as I scoffed, “Did you give her the key to the villa? Perhaps, you should even record her fingerprint for identification purposes and grant her access to the house. If you plan to do so, tell me in advance, so I can sell my share of the property to you and move out.”
“Listen carefully, Scarlett Larson.” He raised his voice. “We’re married, and you’re my wife.”
I nodded. “I know. That’s why I called the cops to take her away. The villa belongs to us. She shouldn’t have been there.”
At that, he tapped his forehead with his palm and said, “Come here!” He moved to the other side of the bed and signaled me to go over.
Without hesitation, I walked up and lay beside him on his bed.
He looked at me and smirked, but I ignored him. I shut my eyes and tried to sleep.
I woke up quite late the next day as I had not managed to get enough sleep the night before.
Upon hearing birds chirping outside the ward, I opened my eyes and looked out the window.
At first, I thought I was still in the villa, but the moment I stretched my arms, I accidentally hit Ashton. He was already awake and signing off some documents.
He raised his head to look at me when my palm landed right on his face. “You’re awake.”
I immediately retracted my hand and nodded.
When I finally remembered that I had spent a night in the hospital, I slowly crawled out from his bed.
The bed in the hospital was not as comfortable as the one in my room, so it was difficult for me to sleep well. Besides, the fear of cold had caused me to stay close to anything that could keep me warm. Clearly, Ashton was last night’s victim – he had been pushed to the very edge of the bed.
I embarrassedly lowered my eyes. “I’m so sorry!” I can’t believe I did that to a patient!
The man simply grinned and kept his documents away. “Hungry?”
He then gently moved back to the middle of the bed. A nurse soon came in to check on him and gave him his medicines. By her facial expression, I could tell that she must have waited outside for a long time.
Once the nurse had finished performing her duties in the ward, I replied to Ashton’s question earlier, “Not really.” I then turned around and went to the washroom to freshen up a little.
Since he still needed to take his medicine, I asked, “Is there anything you wish you eat?”
He responded with a gentle smile. “You can decide!”
Can he stop being so annoying? When I took my bag and was ready to leave, Jared walked into the ward with Ashton’s medical records. He must have come to check on him.
The man saw me and immediately said, “Thank you.”
He must be thanking me for allowing him to sleep in the villa. ”You’re welcome. You deserve a good night’s rest after being tortured by someone.”
Jared suppressed his smile. “Are you leaving?”
“To buy breakfast.” I paused and then asked him, “Have you eaten?”
He shook his head. “I just arrived at the hospital.”
“Is there anything you want to eat?”
Once again, he shook his head. “I’m fine with anything!”
I nodded, walked along the corridor, and headed downstairs in an elevator.
Mrs. Eriksen soon called me, asking why I was not at home, so I explained the situation to her briefly. The woman wanted to bring breakfast over, but I declined her offer.
Yet, after walking around the hospital for a while, I realized there were no restaurants in this area. In the end, I had no choice but to get her to bring us breakfast.
I waited for her outside the hospital, but she still had not appeared after a long while. All of a sudden, I saw Joe walking toward the hospital with food in his hand.
He must have brought food for Ashton.
Soon after, Mrs. Eriksen arrived with many different types of food like mushroom soup, buns, and milk.
After passing all the items to me, she left in a hurry.
Since Joe had brought food for Ashton, I decided to deliver breakfast to Jared’s office instead.
Upon seeing the amount of food in my hands, Jared raised his brows. “We’re supposed to finish all these on our own?”
I nodded, walked into his office, and started sipping on the mushroom soup. “We have milk, buns, and mushroom soup. Feel free to choose what you want to eat.”
Jared nodded. He quickly gobbled down a few buns and drank a glass of milk – he needed to go for his patient rounds.
There were still so many buns and mushroom soup left; I knew I would not be able to finish them on my own.
I hesitated for a bit before deciding to bring the leftovers to Ashton’s ward anyway. Upon seeing someone in the ward, I waited outside the door and peeked in to get a good look.
