When There Is Nothing Left But Love Chapter 530


“Are you still there, Scarlett?” Emery asked on the other side of the line.

“Yes.” After a pause, I asked, “Where are you going for your honeymoon?”

She thought about it and said, “I had a talk with Hunter, and we decided to go to the Miralaea for our honeymoon. The weather is nice over there.”

There was a noise coming from the bedroom, so I quickly said, “Have a safe flight then. I think Summer is up, so I have to go and check on her.”

We said our goodbyes and hung up.

Summer was awake. She was curled up under the blanket, and she still appeared to be weak. When she saw me, she said softly, “Mommy, I’m thirsty.”

I poured her a glass of water and brought it to her lips. I placed my hand on her forehead to check her temperature and found that the fever had subsided.

“Mommy.” Seeing that I was lost in thought, Summer called out to me and passed me the cup.

I came around and took the cup from her hand.

Then, I pulled the blanket up to her chin and asked, “Do you want to sleep for a little while more?”

Summer shook her head. “I don’t want to sleep anymore. Did Mr. Crest say that I can get out of bed?”

I smiled faintly and said, “Of course, you can.”

With that, she threw the blanket off her and got out of bed. Although her fever had subsided, she still seemed a little tired.

It had stopped snowing. Standing by the window, I stared at the snow-covered ground and was lost in thought.

What was the exchange between Ashton and Marcus? It must have been something that triggered both men to be in a fight.

Ashton had always been able to keep his emotions under control, and he wouldn’t get angry easily.

An hour later, I received a call from Camelia. “Let’s have a talk, Scarlett.”

I could tell from her tone that she was anxious. “Okay.”

“Are you free to go out?”

I cast a glance at Summer. She was lying on the sofa, and she was about to fall asleep.

“I’m afraid not.”

There was a pause before she said, “Ashton bought most of the White Corporation’s shares at a high price. Together with the fake news of White Corporation’s shares falling, the rumours about the three of you, and him cooperating with other investment companies to crush White Corporation. Why is he so ruthless?”

I know nothing much about the stock market. But from what Camelia had said, it seemed to have reached a critical stage.

“I’m not quite sure about this. Perhaps you can find out what did Marcus said to Ashton at Emery’s wedding.” Women should never interfere in the battle among men.

She sighed. “Scarlett, you don’t have to worry about any losses because Ashton is backed by a ten-year HiTech company. But that is not the case with White Corporation. For the past few years, things are not looking good. OrbitTech was acquired by White Corporation in a short four years’ span. Although it’s profitable, it can’t be compared to HiTech. Ashton loves you, so please ask him to have some mercy.”

I felt a sense of annoyance after hearing that. Clamping down on my emotion, I asked, “Did Marcus asked you to say that?”

“Are you angry?” she asked irritably in return.

“Yes.”

“Scarlett, Marcus is my fiancé and the father of my child. I have to defend him and help him. You can resent me all you want. But I’m begging you, please.”

“Ashton is my husband. Did you ever think of that before you asked me to help you?” I sighed and continued. “Camelia, you and I are the same. We stand by our men.”

After a pause, I said, “I won’t intervene in the matters concerning Marcus and White Corporation. If you really think of me as your friend, please stop with this emotional blackmail. I won’t participate in the business affairs and I won’t do anything to go against Ashton.”

I hung up the phone and composed myself. When I turned around, I saw that Summer had fallen asleep.

Initially, I wanted to sit for the admission test. But as the day went by, I missed my admission test.

That evening.

When Ashton returned home, he looked somewhat tired, probably still a little hungover.

Seeing me sitting dazedly in the living room, he put down the car key and walked over to me. He pulled me into his arms and asked gently, “Why didn’t you give me a call?”

I was taken aback for a moment. I looked up at him, and my eyes fell on his evening shadow. “I’m afraid that you’re busy.”

He leaned his head on my shoulder and said, “Nothing is more important than you.”

After a few seconds, he asked, “What’s for dinner?” He scanned the living room and asked, “Where’s Summer?”

“She’s asleep in her bedroom. She was running a fever this morning,” I said. I wondered if I should ask him about Marcus.

He nodded and cuddled me. “Jared came over?”

I answered with a yes. After being silent for a moment, I looked up at him and said, “I saw the news this morning. Fuller Corporation bought quite a few shares in OrbitTech. Is Fuller Corporation venturing into the AI sector?”

It wasn’t a straightforward question. But he had a strong insight, and he could tell what I really wanted to ask.

Ashton’s expression darkened and he asked, “Who called you today?”

For a moment, he realized that his tone was a little too harsh. He controlled himself and said, “I’ll take care of the business side of things. Don’t worry about it.”

Although he sounded gentle, there was a hint of coldness in his words.

I understood what he meant. He didn’t want me to get involved, and he had his own way of dealing with the matter between Marcus and him.
