In Love, Never Say Never Chapter 76

“It’s my mom’s birthday tomorrow night. Wanna come along?” he asked. It seemed like our scandal meant nothing to him at all.

I massaged my temples, which were throbbing dully. “I’m not free. You should refute the rumor soon.”

Ashton was the only person I could ask for help to keep John away from us.

But right then, the rumor about Nick and me was a problem.

He fell silent for a moment before answering, “I’ll take care of that.”

“Alright,” I said tiredly. “Stop causing any more trouble!”

I didn’t know when John would come to J City. If Ashton got upset at me over the scandal and the nightmare from five years ago happened again, I’m afraid I couldn’t survive any longer.

Staying alive was the most important thing for me then.

After hanging up, I placed my phone aside before deciding to go to Ashton’s office.

This time, his office was quiet. Joseph wasn’t even there.

As the clacking sounds of the keyboard sounded from his office, I came to a stop outside and knocked on the door.

“Come in!” the man’s irresistible voice rang out.

I hesitated for a while before pushing the door open. When I came closer to him, my heart started thumping furiously.

He was still typing furiously on his keyboard.

I stood in front of his desk silently, watching him deal with work. Indeed, he looked hot when he was focusing on work.

“Put it down. I’ll sign it later.” As he was too focused, he didn’t realize it was me and ordered without looking up.

I remained standing without a word.

After a long while, he frowned and stopped typing. When he looked up and saw me, his expression darkened.

“What is it?” he asked icily.

“Ashton, we need to talk.” I had to explain to him about my so-called scandal with Nick.

He leaned back in his chair and arched a brow sarcastically. “Ms. Stovall, you need to talk about work?” he inquired in a tone dripping with disdain.

He sounded completely distant.

I pursed my lips and wrung my hands together tightly. “Ashton, I can explain the rumor about Nick and me.”

“You slept with him?” He raised a brow and inquired coolly.

I didn’t quite understand it at first, but it quickly dawned on me what he was insinuating. “No!” I declared, my face was ashen.

“Ha!” he sneered loudly. “Scarlett, do you think I’ll trust you?” he taunted.

“Ashton, at least give me a chance to explain, alright?” As both Nick and I didn’t explain the rumors, the matter had worsened by now.

Seemingly impatient, he pinched his forehead and looked at me. “Ms. Stovall, you’re getting paid handsomely to work in Fuller Corporation. Please do not waste your time discussing your private affairs with your employer.”


“Ms. Stovall,” he interrupted. “You should know that this isn’t the appropriate time to talk about this.”

I parted my lips to retort, but Joseph was walking toward us. He shot me a polite smile. “Ms. Stovall, Mr. Fuller is busy.”

He was asking me to leave.

I gazed at Ashton, who obviously didn’t want to continue this conversation.

Ignoring Joseph’s words, I asked, “Mr. Fuller, when are you free, then? We really need to talk.”

He said nothing, but his expression grew thunderous.

Joseph immediately spoke, “Ms. Stovall, if there’s nothing else, please leave at once!”

I knew he wouldn’t listen to me today, so I left his office. On my way out, I bumped into Jared.

He was holding some stuff in his hands. When he saw me coming out of Ashton’s office, he questioned, “Did you have a fight?”

I nodded in response.

Ashton had always been bad-tempered over the years. We might be a married couple, but I didn’t even know why he was mad this time.

“Here, your medicine. Remember to take them regularly back home.” Jared handed me a package. He glanced at Ashton’s office before telling me, “I’ve heard about the scandal. You should explain to him.”

He returned to his office while I went back to mine.

When it was finally time to get off work, I grabbed my bag and headed to the parking lot to wait for Ashton.

I spotted his black Jeep and stood beside it. It was my problem, so I had to explain everything to him clearly.

However, Ashton still hadn’t shown himself after an hour. The parking lot was practically empty by now. I thought he was working overtime.

To my utter surprise, Joseph showed up.
