In Love, Never Say Never Chapter 67

“Ms. Larson, you’re not me. How would you know that’s not what I want?” I couldn’t hold back any longer. After all, Jared was listening to them as well. Stepping into Ashton’s office, I shot Rebecca an icy glare. “Ms. Larson, even if my husband does not love me, we now have a child together. That means we’re a true family. You might be clueless, but not all couples love each other.”

Both Rebecca and Ashton were shocked at my sudden appearance. She swiftly retorted, “Do you seriously think you can make him stay with your child?”

I gave her a nod. “I wasn’t sure if I could, but after seeing your reaction, I think I’ve succeeded. After all, my child and I come first instead of you, Ms. Larson.”

Ashton’s expression soured at my words. I ignored him and continued, “Of course, you’re shameless enough to stay by his side. Perhaps after I’ve given birth, he might be bored at home and want to experience something different. By then, you will have the chance to provide him a fresh experience.”

“Pfft!” Fits of laughter could be heard coming from the entrance. As it turned out, Joe and Nick were standing at the door.

Stifling his laughter, Nick drawled out, “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to eavesdrop on your conversation, but you were so loud. I couldn’t stop myself from laughing.”

Joe glared at me, seemingly enraged. He went to Ashton and handed him a file. “You can have your own family, but you shouldn’t have allowed someone like Scarlett to insult her!”

With that, he dragged Rebecca away.

I stood in their way and stared at Joe icily. “Mr. Quinn, someone like me? What do you mean?”

“You’re selfish, despicable, and heartless!” he replied immediately.

Nodding, I flashed a mocking smile. “Thank you for your detailed answer. Then what is the woman you fancy like?”

Ignoring their expressions, I added with a grin, “Once a b*tch, forever a b*tch. Ms. Larson might seem nice enough to make you forget she’s a homewrecker. But the truth is, she has forced the wife to abort her baby and framed someone for possessing drugs. Are her actions forgivable because she looks delicate and weak?”

“Scarlett, stop spouting nonsense!” Rebecca blurted out angrily.

I cocked my eyebrows at her. “Desperate much?”

“Enough!” Ashton finally spoke up. He glanced at Joe and ordered him, “Send her back home! Don’t let her come here again.”

Joe was about to say something, but Jared cut him off. “Joe, when you’re back later, come to my office. I have something for your father. It’s for his rheumatism.”

At the same time, Nick looked at Ashton and asked, “Mr. Fuller, are you free now? Let’s talk.”

Joe had nothing else to say. He glowered at me and left with Rebecca.

I said to Jared, “I need to talk to you.”

I really did!

Nodding, he said, “Let’s go to my office.”

In his office, I sat down and sighed tiredly, “I’ve been suffering from dizzy spells recently. My shoulders and spine feel awful.”

He went to his seat and began running checks.

After a while, he returned with my diagnosis. “Well, it looks like your dizziness is the result of you staying up late. You should refrain from doing that and rest earlier. Besides, there are signs of depression due to stress. You should lighten up and keep a good mood.”

Resting my chin on my hand, I informed him, “I’m going on a business trip to A City. Is there any sleeping pill I can bring along?”

“Yes, but they are not good for your baby,” he replied. “You shouldn’t rely on them.”

I murmured in assent. If this kept going on, I wasn’t even sure whether I could pull through, let alone the baby.

When I stepped out of Jared’s office, I nearly bumped into Ashton, who seemed terribly upset. I wasn’t feeling well, so I couldn’t be bothered to talk to him.

He grabbed my hand when I brush past him. “What’s wrong with you?” he asked in his deep voice.

“I’m still alive!” I pulled away from him in irritation and stepped into the elevator.

Back at my office, Stacey placed a stack of files on my desk. “Ms. Stovall, these are the reports of Fuller Corporation’s audit. Please read through and sign your name.”
