Let me go, Mr. Hill By Shallow South Chapter 2032
With a smile, Chester suddenly moved closer to Eliza’s ears and said nastily, “Eliza, you wanted to send a few of your subordinates overseas before this, right? I don’t think I’ve told you that they haven’t been able to leave the country…”
Eliza suddenly lifted her head, her eyes pretty and clear. She glared at him in shock. “What did you do?”
“Nothing much. All I did was refuse their visas. With their names and identities exposed, they can’t go overseas for now. As you know, they might be in danger being in the country too. Having said that, I can easily do something to ensure their safety.”
Chester covered the cigarette in his mouth while lighting it. As usual, his remarks were harsh, but he said it with a gentle smile on his handsome face, like an elegant young man.
However, his behavior was far from gentlemanly. Eliza instantly grasped his meaning.
Her right hand was shivering with anger. She had an urge to slap him.
“You want to slap me, huh?” Chester raised his brows. “Sure you can. But do think about the consequences.”
Eliza snorted coldly. “ I finally understand what it means to care too much about the gains ahead without being aware of the dangers behind. You’re brilliant, Young Master Jewell. Freya, Rodney, Sarah, and I probably became your pawns that night, and you’re the ultimate winner. People like you who excel at scheming are doomed to be lonely. No one will fall for you because you’re too cold- blooded.”
“It’s alright. I don’t need love. All I want is you, ” Chester mocked in a light-hearted manner.
Eliza scoffed, her eyes filled with endless hatred. “ You think too highly of me. I’m no different from the women you’ve interacted with in the past. They have what I have. Or… are you obsessed with having two good friends to serve you? Sadly, Charity is dead. Otherwise, the two of us could occasionally accompany you at the same time. That must be interesting to you.”
His Achilles’ heel was exposed once again. A hint of grimness flashed across his eyes.
Nevertheless, he shrugged indifferently after a while. “Don’t provoke me. It’s no use. From the moment I made up my mind, I’ve decided to live in such a selfish, casual manner. It doesn’t matter even if I go to hell after I die.”
He paused for a moment before caressing her smooth face. “Well, you’ve exposed your weakness through this incident, Eliza. I can see that it’s pointless to threaten you since you’re not afraid of death. But before the incident, you made some arrangements for your subordinates, which means that you still care about them. Anyway, it’s your choice. If you want to save them, be my woman.
Otherwise, I’ll have them captured. Putting aside Sarah’s kidnap, your subordinates have probably committed quite a lot of crimes when they worked for you. If they’re under investigation, I guess their lives will be at stake.”
Eliza raised her head and looked at his handsome face.
At that moment, she wished she could stab him to death.
However, Chester was not Sarah. She was incapable of doing it to him.
She felt that Chester was just like a devil, regardless of whether it was when she lived in her own body or Eliza’s body.
What evil deeds had she done in her previous life to cross paths with this man time and time again in this life?
“ It’s up to you to decide. I’m hungry. Because of you, I haven’t had breakfast.”
Chester sat down slowly on the chair. The delicate breakfast on the dining table was still warm.
He used a knife and fork to cut the fried egg.
Eliza took a deep breath and closed her eyes. When she opened them again, they were as still as water.
She walked up to him and asked dejectedly, “How long do I have to be your woman?”
“Until I’m sick of you.” Chester held her hands and put them on his thighs. He draped his arm around her shoulders and muttered with a masculine voice a s if she was his most intimate lover, “Come and eat this egg I fried. It’s not bad.”
Eliza turned her eyes to the egg white he forked. After staying quiet for two seconds, she lowered her head and forked the egg into her mouth.
As she bent over, Chester stared at the back of her neck, which was as thin and fair as a swan’s neck.
He had forgotten how long it had been since he admired a woman so carefully.
