When There Is Nothing Left But Love Chapter 224

“She’s doing great. She’s in postpartum confinement now and is caring wholeheartedly for her child. That’s why she probably didn’t have time to answer your call.” I had a nagging feeling that he sounded weird, but I couldn’t put my finger on what it was.

So I replied, “Then where are you guys now?”

I could vaguely hear the voice of a kid crying over the phone. It brought tears to my eyes, and my heart clenched in pain

“We’re still in the countryside. We’ll come to visit you in K City once Macy is feeling better.”

I quickly nodded and couldn’t stop the feeling of happiness from welling up in me. At least Macy’s child is doing good.

He was probably busy taking care of his child. That was why he hung up hastily after talking for a bit more.


As autumn approached, the temperature in K City dropped by the day. I already felt cold even though I had only been sitting outside for a while.

After taking a few steps, I stopped walking when I saw the familiar black Jeep with the car plate number JA888C on it. Ashton.What is he doing here?

Instinctively, I turned and walked away.

However, I only managed to take a few steps when he grabbed hold of my arm. “When do you plan to stop hiding from me, Scarlett?”

My body froze, and I started to feel suffocated. “Let’s get divorced, Ashton.”


Not only was I running away from my problems, but I was also hiding from him. I just couldn’t continue living with that man anymore.

Initially, I could accept the fact that he didn’t love me. I could also tolerate the complicated relationship he had with Rebecca and the way they flirted with each other.

As long as I could keep the child, I was able to keep going. Even if he didn’t love me, he would still love the child since it was his.

But now, I had lost our child, and I couldn’t find a reason to stay with him anymore. I didn’t want to lie to myself, nor did I want to go berserk whenever I saw him and Rebecca being intimate.

“Divorce?” Hurt flashed across his face as he added, “Must it end this way, Scarlett?”

I nodded. My face looked much calmer by then, but I was hurting inside. “I can’t go on with you anymore, Ashton. I married you back then all because of my gratitude toward George for taking care of Grandma and me. I was willing to repay him at all costs. But now that I’ve gone through

so much, I’ve already done my part. So just let me go now.”

A cold smile appeared on his lips upon hearing that. “So you married me because you wanted to repay him?”

“Yes,” I said with a nod.

Ashton’s face turned ugly. “Well, since you married me to repay Grandpa, you should finish what you started by staying with me for the rest of your life. Anyway, I never planned to break up or leave you.”

I was stunned by his words and was close to an emotional breakdown. “Can’t you understand, Ashton? I hate you. I don’t want to be with you, and I don’t want to see you!”

He narrowed his dark eyes, hiding the pain in them. “Then get used to it slowly. Get your revenge since you hate me. The best way to take revenge is to pester me, isn’t it?”

“You’re crazy!” I broke down and screamed. “You’ll get your karma when the time comes. I don’t want to dirty my own hands.”

With that said, I walked toward the door. He quickly followed suit. “Marcus wouldn’t be able to take care of you forever. Go back with me!”

He grabbed my arm, but I didn’t want him to touch me. I couldn’t care less even if I fell down the stairs as the only thought in my mind was to push him away.

Realizing that he was falling backward, Ashton was afraid that I would be dragged along with him, so he quickly released my arm.

I watched expressionlessly as he collapsed onto the floor and turned to open the door before stepping into the elevator.

Once I was home, I quickly ate my medicine to control my emotions. Then, I got into bed and waited for sleep to come.

Suddenly, my phone rang, and I answered when I realized that it was Marcus calling, “Hello?”

“Remember to eat. Don’t just go to sleep immediately.” His words made me suspect if I was being spied on.

I couldn’t stop myself from asking, “How did you know I was going to sleep?”

“Because I know you too well.” He chuckled.

I bit my lips as I continue lying in bed. “I took my medicine earlier. Now I’m too lazy to move.”

“Why did you take them all of a sudden?” His voice turned serious.

“I met Ashton downstairs a while ago,” I said.

Since my emotions had been more stable these days, I didn’t need to take my medicine anymore.

He kept silent for a moment before saying, “There’s food in the fridge. At least eat a little before you sleep. Otherwise, you might not be able to fall asleep at night.”

I nodded and took a glance at the clock. It was only around seven. After some thought, his words actually made sense. If I slept now, I might not be able to fall back asleep if I woke up at night.


I went into the kitchen to get something to eat once we hung up. Marcus must have expected that I would be too lazy to cook. Hence, he prepared a meal for me beforehand and left it in the fridge. All I needed to do was reheat it.

The medicine started to kick in after I took a few bites. I quickly went to bed and fell asleep soon after

After some time, I was woken up by the sound of thunder, trembling from the cold when I opened my eyes. As thunder roared outside, I realized that I had forgotten to close the windows before going to bed, which explained how the cold rain invaded my room.

Fumbling around in the dark to get my phone, I looked at the time to find that it was only midnight. I couldn’t help but frown. Now that I was awake, I might not be able to fall asleep anymore.

Then, I noticed that there were multiple missed call notifications shown on the phone screen. Even though there wasn’t a caller ID, I knew that the familiar numbers belonged to Ashton.
