When There Is Nothing Left But Love Chapter 143

TO

Ignoring his words, I inquired, “Are you still overseas?”

Jackson and I were college friends. After we graduated, he went overseas to further his studies in psychology. As I was quite aloof, rarely contacted my friends after graduating college and marrying Ashton.

He rambled on, “Yes. Where are you? Are you still in J City? Oh yes, how are you feeling?”

I frowned, not wanting to broach the topic “I’m fine. When are you coming back?”

“Soon.” It seemed like he was drinking something, as he paused for a while before continuing “You should come to M Country when you’re free. Macy has told me about your condition. I think you might have depression. The symptoms are the same as before. Come to M Country, and let’s catch up.”

Sensing an oncoming headache, I rubbed my temples and agreed, “Okay.”

“Scarlett, don’t take it lightly. You can die from this illness.”

Knowing he meant well, I nodded and muttered, “All right. I know.”

Realizing that Ashton had put down the documents in his hands, I quickly ended the call. “It’s getting late. Good night.”

“F*ck. It’s still daytime here. What the hell do you mean good night?”

Instead of continuing to listen to him, I ended the call.

Ashton walked toward me, and I kept my phone before casting an indifferent gaze at him. “You’re done with your work?”

He nodded and reached out to pull me into his arms. Pressing a light kiss on my forehead, he whispered, “Do you want to go for a trip to K City?”

“K City?” I stiffened before curiously asked, “Do you have something to do at K City?”

He pulled me to the bed before placing his hand on my stomach. “I’m planning to move the headquarters of Fuller Corporation to K City.”

K City was the capital of the country. In terms of economy and lifestyle, K City was

the best among all other cities. If Fuller Corporation wanted to expand and develop K City was an excellent choice.

However, he was planning to move the headquarters, so I frowned. “I think Fuller Corporation is fine here in J City. It’s already established here for years. If you suddenly move it to K City, I’m afraid you might not be able to expand the business for a while.”

He placed his chin on my shoulder and nodded gently. “Indeed. However, Fuller Corporation has established a new company there, so it won’t be that difficult.”

I nodded quietly.

Feeling sleepy from a long while of sitting, I leaned my body on his and fell asleep.

After resting in the villa for two days, I was starting to get restless. Hence, I decided to leave the house for a walk.

Other than Macy, I had no other female friends in J City. Now that Macy had gone to the countryside, I could not invite anyone to go for a stroll.

After a while of contemplation, I decided to go to the mall alone. No matter what I did, it would be boring anyway.

When I parked my car by the entrance of the mall, I bumped into someone familiar

—Nick. Beside him was a girl, and she looked familiar to me as well.

A brief thought made me realize she was the one I previously met at the supermarket.

I watched as the two headed to the mall clinging on to each other. It seemed like Nick was here to keep the girl company, unlike the last time.

By the look of things, Nick quite liked her, for they seemed happy to be hugging each other while walking.

Perhaps my staring was too obvious, as Nick noticed me. The moment he saw me, he visibly froze for a split second before striding toward me.

He exclaimed, “Are you here to shop or to date?”

Noticing the girl following behind him, I smiled. “I’m here for a walk.”

“Shall we eat together?” As he spoke, the woman was already by his side, tugging his

sleeve. It was obvious what she was hinting to both him and me.

Hence, I shook my head. “No, you go ahead.”

Why would a pregnant woman like me get in between a young couple?

Just as I was about to leave, Nick stopped me. “Let’s eat together. I have something to talk to you about.”

“Nick!” The girl beside him was now upset. She whined, “You promised to keep me company today. Ms. Stovall seems like she wants to shop by herself. Let’s not disturb her.”

Nick frowned, seemingly annoyed. “I have something to talk to her about. Why don’t you go home first? I’ll see you another day.”

At that, the girl’s face fell. She fumed, “You promised Ms. Anderson that you’ll spend time with me!”

“Stop using her as an excuse. It’s annoying,’ Nick growled. “If you don’t want to go shopping, then go home yourself. I still have something else to attend to, so I got to go now.”

With that said, he dragged me into the mall.

The girl jogged over to tug on his sleeve. Her eyes were bloodshot as she mumbled pitifully, “Nick, I’m sorry. I’m wrong. I won’t interrupt your talk with her. Once you’re done, let’s go shopping, okay?”

Hearing her miserable tone, I felt bad for her. Thus, I pried off Nick’s hand and told him, “Let’s talk another day. I still have some things to do, so I’ll take my leave now.”

The mall in this part of the city was large, and I headed straight to the baby store. As Ashton was almost done setting up the nursery, I didn’t have much to buy.

Right as I exited the store, I spotted Nick, who was looking around. Upon seeing me, he shouted, “Let’s go!”
