In love, never say never novel read online free chapter 133
“Clack!” Suddenly the cup that John held was being released and it landed on the table producing a sound. “If you are really unperturbed, why did you leave Fuller Corporation so disgracefully? Letty, if you truly don’t care about it, then you should divorce Ashton quickly for the sake of your pride.”
“It is none of your business how I want to divorce or the way in which I use to divorce. John, I appreciate your concern. However, it is just appreciation. Please don’t get involved in my matters in the future. Since we used to be siblings, I am begging of you!”
With that, I turned my back. “Thanks for the tea, both of you. It’s getting late and I need to go back now!” I left the private room without waiting for their reply.
Soon after I left the room, a smashing sound of the glass from inside could be heard faintly. Nevertheless, I didn’t really stop but walked along the corridor to go down the stairs.
Macy was at the lobby of the cafe waiting for me. She stood up and trotted towards me upon seeing my appearance. She worriedly asked, “Are you okay? Did he cause any trouble?”
I shook my head while grabbing her hands tightly. “Nope. It is late now. Let’s go home!”
She looked up and glimpsed at the second floor dreadfully. John with an emotionless face had already come out from the private room as he stood along the corridor watching us quietly.
She then grabbed me tightly and nodded. “Alright. Let’s go home!”
We left the cafe while she held my hands without turning her head back.
It was past midnight by the time we reached our neighborhood. Upon taking a simple shower, we went to bed together. Recently, I had an unexplained fear which resulted in me not being able to drop off alone. Luckily, Macy was sleeping by my side. With her company, I slept through the night.
On the next day…
Q City is famous for its fine weather. It was just seven in the morning. The ray of morning sunlight streamed through the gap of the curtain into the room with a vague sight and it was beautiful.
While looking up at the ceiling blankly, my mobile phone on top of the bedside table started vibrating. Then, I extended my hand to get it and look at the incoming call shown. It was from a relatively familiar number.
Anyhow, I couldn’t recall who it was. Then, I picked up the mobile phone. “Hello!”
“Where are you?” the voice sounded a bit cold yet very familiar. I was dumbfounded at first. As I got hold of myself, it was Dr. Crest who called. Then, I spoke spontaneously. “Dr. Crest?”
So far, he had been talking to me gently. I can’t help but wondered why he is so cold today.
There was a moment of silence over the phone. Then, Dr. Crest with a toned-down voice asked, “Scarlett, are you with Macy?”
In a hindsight, I only realized that this mobile phone belonged to Macy after looking at it clearly.
I was shocked and spoke over the phone. “Yes, how are you doing lately?”
Nick told me that he was inside the intense care unit all the while. I guessed that he already came out from there. I opened my mouth when Ashton came across my mind but in the end, I didn’t mention anything about him.
“Yes, I have been inside the operation theater all this while. Joe told me about the happening at Fuller Corporation. Anyway, don’t think too much. I’ll go back to J City tomorrow. Let’s catch up then.” Dr. Crest’s voice sounded very gentle as he meant to console me.
I nodded with some relief and responded, “Alright. Don’t worry as I am not in J City now. Perhaps, a few days later.”
“Where have you all been?” He asked as he seemed to sense that my tone was a bit impatient just now. He paused before continuing to ask, “You are away to ease your mood?”
I didn’t think much and replied, “At K City. Well, presumably yes.”
Macy who slept beside me had awoken probably due to my conversation on the phone. Then, she turned over her body as she looked at me and queried with a hoarse voice. “Who’s call was that?”
I told her in a soft voice. “Dr. Crest. It seems like he is looking for you!” I passed her the mobile phone while talking to her.
Her expression changed while receiving the mobile phone. Then, she stood up and went to the balcony.
I also stood up and searched for my mobile phone. Then, I glanced through the screen but there were no messages. The chat box with Ashton was empty on WhatsApp.
My chest felt tight and I was feeling rather uncomfortable. Nonetheless, I got up and washed up in the bathroom.
When I came out from the bathroom, Macy was looking at me with an unpleasant expression.
I was shocked. “What happen?”
“You told him that we are in Q City?” asked Macy.
I nodded while my heart missed a beat. Then, I tried to ask, “Does the baby belong to Dr. Crest?”
“No!” She was about to tell me but after pausing a while, she said, “I will take a shower now. You can pack up first. We’ll stay in the countryside for few days.”
“Huh?” I was astounded. “Why are we going to the countryside again? We just came to Q City!”
“Ashton should be back in J City now. Do you want to meet up with him to sort thing out?” Macy seemed to be upset and said softly, “Letty, I don’t wish to have anything to do with any of these people ever again. You have already left Fuller Corporation. If you are reluctant to let go of him, then you can go back to him and start afresh. However, if you are able to let go, then we’ll leave that place together and stay far away from them, okay?”
Was she referring to Ashton or Jared?
Macy was a very decisive person. I knew that once she had made up her mind to leave, then there would be no turning back.
I was stupefied as my mind was in a mess. Do I continue to be on good terms with Ashton?” I refused to accept the entanglement between him and Rebecca whether it was in the past, present, or the future.
However, I was reluctant to break up with Ashton. Furthermore, I already had his baby and I didn’t want the child to be born without a father’s love.
