In Love, Never Say Never Chapter 74

“Uh, bye. Talk to you later!” Macy cut the line abruptly.

Huh? What was going on?

Didn’t I ask Jared to send her back last night? I couldn’t believe she found herself a one-night stand in that circumstance!

Wait, was that Jared?

I proceeded to call Jared next. The phone rang for quite some time before someone picked up.

“Scarlett,” he answered in a clear voice. It didn’t seem like he was asleep, so I asked, “What are you doing?”

“I’m driving. What’s wrong?” he replied.

Well, it looked like he wasn’t with Macy.

Chuckling, I told him, “I’m done with work. Are you free this afternoon? Let’s have lunch together.”

“Sure,” he agreed without hesitation.

When I hung up, Nick was looking at me, amused. “Scarlett, seriously?”

I shot him a puzzled look. “What’s wrong?”

He sighed, “Is it that bad to spend some time alone with me? You keep calling your friends and inviting them here!”

Ugh, how childish! I ignored his outburst and gazed at the bustling city. “A City is developing swiftly.”

Gazing at International Trade Center located right in the bustling area, I told Nick, “This is a tall building!”

He knew I was trying to change the topic and huffed, “Fuller Corporation’s building is taller than this. Plus, it houses different companies inside.”

“Oh? You seem to know it well.” I grew curious.

“Mm.” He grunted and added, “My mom bought this building with another tech company’s owner. She has a company inside.”

So this building was owned by Cameron. I couldn’t help but admire this capable woman. She was both wealthy and pretty.

I recalled her saying she had another daughter when we were in Pear Garden. “You have a sister?” I asked Nick curiously.

Nick seemed to hate this topic as his expression soured. “That’s her daughter. It has nothing to do with me!”

I stopped talking about it at once. Looking around, I noticed a store selling cream puffs on the first floor of International Trade Center. Suddenly, I had a craving for it.

Turning to Nick, I suggested, “Why don’t you wait for Jared and Macy in the mall? I’m going to buy something.”

I ran toward the cream puff store right after that. Both Macy and I loved eating cream puffs. We had similar tastes in food.

After I ordered a few cream puffs, I stared into space blankly. My childhood memory was fuzzy by then, but I remembered how I loved eating cold and sweet stuff.

“Two iced cream puffs, please!” Suddenly, a deep male voice rang in my ear. It was so familiar and brought back some memories of the past.

If the store owner hadn’t hummed in acknowledgement, I would’ve thought I was dreaming.

My reflexes always got the better of me. I didn’t know when it started, but John had always terrified me. Once I sensed his presence, my skin would crawl.

The sun was shining brightly, but a chill was running down my spine, seeping into my veins. I started panting and trembling in fear.

Behind me, a man greeted me icily, “Letty, long time no see!”

My body stiffened as I panted with difficulty. The cream puff store owner handed me my order, but I couldn’t bring myself to take it.

The man’s hand reached out and took it. He pulled my hand naturally and placed the box in my hand. “Letty, your reaction is really upsetting me,” he uttered menacingly.

It took me some time to calm down. I stepped away from him and choked out, “I’m sorry. You got the wrong person!”

With that, I fled the scene as fast as possible.

It had been five years since I last met John. He had once said he wouldn’t come looking for me on his own. However, our next meeting would be the beginning of his new scheme.

I thought I wouldn’t see him again after he left J City. After all, the world was huge.

Never in a million years did I think we’d see each other again in A City.

After escaping from John, I found Nick and Macy together. I stuffed the ruined cream puffs in her hands and pleaded in a trembling voice, “Macy, we need to return to J City now. Right now!”

Sensing my panic, Macy returned anxiously, “What’s wrong?”

“John Stovall. I saw him here!” I mumbled fearfully.

Macy slumped into her chair in shock. It took her some time to process that piece of information. “Let’s head back to J City now!” she urged.

Nick didn’t know what was going on. His brows knitted together as he asked, “What is it?”

Macy took my hand, ready to leave. Nick tugged at my other hand in confusion. “Wait, what’s going on?”
