In Love, Never Say Never Chapter 100

We did not speak throughout the journey and I was quite sleepy upon arriving at the villa.

Ashton carried me out of the car, and we headed straight into the bedroom. He laid me on the bed and said, “Don’t fall asleep yet. Go and wash up first.”

I was slightly groggy and couldn’t help but laze on the bed. I pulled the blanket over and was planning to fall asleep then and there.

Ashton saw through what I was trying to do and he carried me from underneath the blanket. We went into the bathroom and he said softly, “Wash up first. Or else, you will suffer tomorrow.”

I agreed and hung myself onto him groggily. As I was stretching my hand to grab the toothpaste, suddenly he took it away.

He applied the toothpaste onto my toothbrush then passed me a glass of water. “Brush your teeth properly.” He sounded as if he was teaching a child.

With the toothbrush in my mouth, I murmured, “I’m not a child.”

He laughed and said, “There’s no difference.”

After I forced myself to wash up, I seemed to be slightly more awake. I lay on the bed with Ashton next to me. He hugged me in his arms with his chin resting on my neck. “Let’s have a good sleep tonight.”

I raised one of my eyebrows. “Are you saying that to yourself?”

He starred at me and smiled. “I’m saying that to you. It’s normal for it to have a reaction when it sees its owner.”

He can be turned on anytime, anywhere!

I pursed my lips and pushed him away. “You stink so bad. Go wash up.”

He smiled menacingly and asked, “Where does it stink?”

“Everywhere!” Just when I shut my eyes and was preparing to fall asleep, his voice traveled next to my ear. “Scarlett, let’s live together in harmony from now on? Hm?”

My chest hurt as if my heart had sunk. I pursed my lips without saying a word. Can we really live a good life?

“Ashton, do you love me?” I knew that question was silly but I just had to ask.

He placed his hand on my face and touched my earlobe with his fingers. “What about you?”


I was a little apprehensive as it had been such a long time. It was love at first sight when I met Ashton. I relied on that feeling during the later days. However, much time had passed without him reciprocating my love. At that point, I realized I wasn’t as persistent as before and even planned to leave him.

Maybe, I didn’t love him as much as I thought.

Seeing that I was silent, his eyes darkened, and said, “It’s alright, we’ll take it slow. We will be madly in love with each other in the future!”

I didn’t say anything and pushed him slightly. “Go shower. I’m tired.”

I should have let go earlier, rather than dragging on for so long. It was eating away at me.

He landed a kiss on my forehead before going into the bathroom.

I stared blankly at the ceiling.

His phone that was on the bed started to vibrate. Initially, I wasn’t planning to pick up the call but it kept vibrating. Hence, I answered it.

“Ash, can you come and accompany me? I’m scared to be alone.” Rebecca’s voice was weak and pitiful.

After taking a glance at the bathroom, I uttered, “He is in the shower. Call back later!”

“Scarlett!” She sounded very unpleased. “Why did you pick up Ash’s phone? What are you both doing?”

I was distressed by her voice. “He is in the shower! Call back later!”

“Scarlett, you’re so shameless.” Sometimes I felt that Rebecca had run out of tricks. Besides scheming, crying, and throwing tantrums, there was nothing else to her. If it weren’t because of her good looks, a girl like her wouldn’t pose as much of a threat.

“Yes, I’m shameless. Why not you, Ms. Larson, as his mistress can call him all you like later? So I don’t have to fulfill his sexual desires while I’m pregnant.” I wasn’t disgusted by her, but the clingy behavior that was displayed. It was too tiring.

Before Rebecca was able to scream her head off, I hung up the phone.

I threw the cell phone to one side and pinched my eyebrows. When I looked up, I saw Ashton standing at the bathroom door, his expression gloomy.

I didn’t shy away but instead, I said, “Your phone kept vibrating, so I answered it. Rebecca wants you to go over and keep her company.”

It was already midsummer but somehow, I felt cold lying in bed. I couldn’t help but snug under the blanket.

“Oh, what did you reply?” he asked. Sporting a casual look, his voice was devoid of emotion. It seemed as if he was genuinely asking without any further intention.

“I told her to call you back later.” I hid under the blanket and indeed, I felt warmer like that. Shutting my eyes, I was ready to sleep.

He let out a soft chuckle. Lying next to me, he brushed the hair that was on my forehead to one side.

I opened my eyes and stared at him.

He said with a smile, “Scarlett, I’m your husband. Another woman called in the middle of the night to ask me to keep her company. Shouldn’t you be arguing with me?”

Stunned, I got up from the bed, looked at him, and uttered, “Then don’t stay here tonight. Go stay somewhere else.”

He was taken aback. Then rubbed my forehead, and said helplessly, “You’re my wife. Even if we are arguing, we should still remain in the same house.”

I knew I wasn’t able to banter with him any further. Hence, I hummed in acknowledgement and lay down on the bed again.
