Amanda tried to break free while hitting Elias’ shoulders, screaming. I think you’ve gone mad! Why would I want to get your attention?
Are you sure? You didn’t want a penny from me when signing the divorce papers, but now you’re here earning my money. Don’t you find that intriguing?”
Elias punitively tightened his grip on her slim waist.
Looking at Amanda’s face in such a close range, Elias discovered she had clear, bright doe eyes and snowy-white skin that was delicate and smooth. In addition, her moving lips seemed very
“Do you think I did this willingly? I never wanted to take on this case. It was—*
Before Amanda could finish her words, Elias sneered and took out his phone to play the recording Grace showed him yesterday,
Amanda instantly turned ashen while her eyes were filled with shock at the fact that Grace had recorded their conversation.
Observing the changes in her expression, Elias was a little disappointed and mocked, “Why did you stop? Surprised that Grace recorded everything? Are you trying to deny the words you said?”
Those those were words of anger! I didn’t mean it!”
Amanda turned her face to the side, embarrassed.
She didn’t expect Grace to record their conversation, and everything she said was spoken out of anger. There was no way she would get back together with Elias!
Then, Elias pulled her face back and asked, “Do you think I would believe that?”
“What will it take for you to believe me? I told you. Those were words of anger, and I never wanted to remarry you. I’ve finally escaped a living hell, so why would I return to that situation?”
Living hell? Elias was pissed. Countless women didn’t even have the chance to get in his bed, but Amanda described him as a living hell?
Amanda’s shirt was ripped open, and her eyes widened in shock while she silently screamed, “Elias Winters!”
Td like to see whether your body is more honest or if you are just being stubborn. Aren’t you looking to remarry me? I’m giving you a chance to let me see what you’ve got.”
Right after he finished, he unexpectedly lowered his head and forcefully sealed her lips.
He had been staring at her lips for a long while, and they seemed fatally attractive, evoking his desire to taste them.
The moment Elias kissed Amanda, he discovered he seemed to have fallen for her.
Those lips were soft and sweet… He was a little reluctant to let her
“Uhm… you b*stard!”
Amanda’s eyes were wide as saucers. Her whole body felt like being electrocuted, and she bit down hard.
Then, she heard the man groan in pain and tasted blood inside her mouth before she was finally.
Slap! Amanda slapped Elias, creating a loud sound that echoed inside the giant conference room.
The force of the slap turned Elias’ face to the side and woke him up from his trance. There was
trance. also a blood stain at the corner of his lips.
“Elias Winters! You’re a jerk! Don’t you worry. I won’t come to you even if you’re the only man in the world!”
Once she was done screaming, she held her ripped clothes together and hurriedly fled the conference room. Her frantic figure was obviously filled with terror.
She didn’t expect Elias would dare to make such an outlandish move inside the conference room!
On the other hand, Elias plopped onto a chair and sneered while gently wiping the blood from the corner of his lips.
Had he gone mad? How could he suddenly have the urge to take Amanda right here?
That slap came at the right moment, or else he didn’t know what he might do.
The conference was dead silent, and no one dared to enter without his consent.
In the meantime, Helean was pacing outside the conference room and occasionally checked the time, wondering what Amanda and Elias might be talking about inside.
“Why isn’t she coming out…” Helean muttered and then heard the door behind him opening.
He turned around happily but saw Amanda coming out in a disconcerted state. She was covering her chest like she had been taken advantage of, and her hair was messy.
“Amanda… W-What happened? What were you and Mr. Winters talking about inside?”
With a pale complexion, Amanda headed straight for the elevator, not wanting to say another
“Amanda, talk to me. What happened?”
By now, Helean felt a little panicked. He promised Simon he would care for Amanda before his
“Nothing happened. I just want to go home. I’ll head to the law firm in the afternoon.”
Since that se*mbag had torn her clothes, she had no choice but to return home and change her clothes.
However, it was a small world indeed. Amanda didn’t expect to see Grace standing before her when the elevator doors opened.
Grace stared at Amanda standing outside the elevator with a shocked expression. “Amanda… Why are you here? What are you doing here?” Since she found this place, it’s clear that she’s trying to get back with Elias!
Suddenly, Grace noticed Amanda’s messy hair, swollen lips, and blood at the corner of her
What does that mean? Why does she look like she has been kissing someone?
At that moment, another elevator opened. Amanda didn’t want to speak a word with Grace and only wanted to go home.
She turned around and entered the other elevator while Helean quickly followed.
“Amanda! Explain to me why you’re here!”
Wanting to know what had happened. Grace chased after them, but the elevator doors had already closed.
What the heck is happening here?
Confused, Grace decided to ask Elias about it and went straight to the conference room.
Back inside the conference room, Elias had his arms propped on the table while massaging his temples with his fingers, seemingly resting with his eyes closed.
Suddenly, the conference room doors were opened again.
Elias opened his eyes and saw Grace in front of him, asking. “Elias, I just bumped into Amanda. Why does she-”
Before she finished, she noticed the same blood stain at the corner of Elias’ lips.
Her eyes contracted suddenly, and her mind went blank.
Amanda also had a blood stain on the corner of her lips, so what did that imply?
The scene of two people kissing appeared in Grace’s mind!
She suddenly lost her balance and stumbled backward. Then, she lost her cool and loudly accused. “What… What were you guys doing just now?”
“Why are you screaming?” Elias seemed frustrated as he lazily rose to his feet.
Tears streamed down Grace’s eyes as she sobbed. “Elias, you told me you never had feelings for her, so why did you kiss her? Don’t tell me you’ve fallen for her?”
“Of course not!”
“Then why did you kiss her?” Grace felt overwhelmed with pain. It was like her heart was being ripped into pieces.
Elias avoided her question. “Why are you here? You’ve just gotten discharged, so shouldn’t you be resting at home? I’ll send you back.”
While he spoke, he turned to leave the conference room.
But Grace pulled his arm. “You won’t abandon me, will you? You promised Yelan you would care for me. He even sacrificed his life for you!”
