Chapter 353The next second, she felt something bitter spreading in her mouth.She wanted to spit it out, but Raymond pressed her lips with his until the pill melted. "Drink some water. It's sweet."Instantly, Scarlett regained her composure and pushed him away. She took the glass from Raymond.It was honey water, indeed sweet.Even so, the bitterness of the cold medicine still filled her mouth.Scarlett frowned and glanced out the window.The curtains of the floor-to-ceiling windows were half-open, so she could see that it was already light outside.The high fever made her very uncomfortable. She was burning, and her throat was hot and sore.It took Scarlett a few seconds to remember why Raymond was here. She looked at him. "Why are you still here?""I fell asleep here last night."He said calmly, but Scarlett was just sick, not silly. She didn't believe it.Raymond didn't intend to convince Scarlett. He glanced at the empty glass in her hand. "Want to drink more?"Hearin
Chapter 354"Well, I won't attend the morning meeting.""Okay, I got it."Katherine hesitated for a moment and asked, "Do you need me to go over?"Scarlett glanced at Raymond who was sitting across the table. "No. I've taken medicine."As soon as she mentioned the medicine, Scarlett recalled that Raymond kissed her when she was not completely awake.After she hung up the phone, Scarlett's face turned cold.She felt annoyed seeing Raymond, but he was still sitting across from her, and she couldn't get rid of him.Raymond knew that Scarlett didn't want to see him, but what happened last night gave him courage.She still had feelings for him.This fact was like a call to arms for Raymond. He was now like a soldier with high morale on the battlefield. No matter how heavy the gunfire was, he wouldn't stop charging forward.The two people had different thoughts. No one spoke again.Although Scarlett was hungry, she had no appetite and only ate half of the porridge.She didn't bo
Chapter 355When Scarlett woke up, it was almost 1 a.m.She touched her forehead. Her fever was gone. She felt much better, and her throat was not as painful as before.It seemed that sleeping was useful.She was in good spirits and in a good mood. The room was very quiet. The rain had stopped, and the sky was much brighter. Scarlett raised her eyebrows. After looking outside for a while, she withdrew her eyes and got out of bed.She was thirsty.When she saw Raymond, the smile on Scarlett's face faded.She felt much more comfortable after waking up and almost forgot that Raymond was still at her home.He stayed in her house and even brought his computer and documents here as if he were the owner of the house.Scarlett walked over. Before she could speak, he suddenly looked up at her. "Wait a minute. I'm in a meeting."Scarlett was stunned.She was so embarrassed.She blushed but soon recovered.Scarlett leaned down and picked up her glass on the table. She calmly walked t
Chapter 356Raymond lowered his eyes. Scarlett was quite right, but he had lost his marbles."If you hadn't mentioned Yoselin last night, I would've left here some time ago."With that he took a step closer to her.Scarlett stiffened momentarily, looking somewhat disconcerted.She thought, 'I knew it. Last night I personally gave him the opportunity to approach me again.'Her charming eyes instantly became frosty. She watched frigidly as he walked over, lifted his hand and placed it on her cheek. Scarlett didn't move. She just gazed at him."Don't get me wrong. I'm bringing this up only because I want you to know I deeply regretted not having cherished you when we were together. I'm also aware I'm not the only man who can give you a happy life. But Scarlett, it takes an awful lot to make a relationship work. My failure to show you the love you deserved was the biggest mistake of my life, but in terms of a romantic relationship, it wasn't really that wrong of me to have no feelin
Chapter 357 The emotions suppressed in the past few days burst out in an instant. Scarlett could no longer control herself.She walked to the chair and sat down, covering her face with her hands at the table, trying to hide her face.But she knew that nothing could be hidden.Raymond could see her clearly from where he stood.She wasn't as calm as she looked. It wasn't that she didn't care at all.As she struggled to completely leave him, she could not refuse him to get closer to her step by step.She knew that she was trapped at a dead end."Scarlett."When a man's deep voice came, Scarlett's fingers trembled slightly.She covered her face with her hands, and her eyes were blocked by her fingers. Although Scarlett could not see Raymond, she could feel that he was in front of her.The next second, he pulled her hands away.Scarlett's eyes were still red. She did not want to see him at this time."Let go of my hands."She turned her head and looked at the cabinet in
Chapter 358"Really?"Scarlett smiled and took a sip of water, "But it's too late."She wasn't a greengrocer's stall, which would be waiting for him even if he left.Ronald was too ambitious, so Scarlett didn't want to take any chances.Although three million dollars was nothing to her, she would rather buy a purse for Alexis with it than be cheated by Ronald.Katherine nodded, "I got it, Ms. Reed."Scarlett was about to let Katherine go back when the doorbell suddenly rang.Scarlett raised her eyebrows and looked at Katherine, "You can go back. I will attend the meeting tomorrow afternoon as usual.""Okay, Ms. Reed. Bye.""I'll walk you out." Scarlett said, wanting to see who was coming.When they reached the door, she saw Yoselin standing outside her villa gate with an umbrella through the security door.Scarlett froze and opened the door for Katherine, "Be careful.""Okay, Ms. Reed."Katherine glanced at Yoselin. She knew better than anyone that Yoselin was Raymond's m
Chapter 359Yoselin had done what she came to do today, "Well, my business is done. See you later."Before she left, she looked at Scarlett and smiled, "You make great coffee. I hope to taste your coffee sometime again."Scarlett got up and walked her out, "Welcome to my house for coffee when you have time." "Don't worry, I won't bring Raymond over." Yoselin smiled gently. Scarlett smiled back, "See you later." "Go back into the house. It's raining." Yoselin stopped Scarlett at the front door, and then she held out an umbrella and left. Scarlett stood on the steps and watched Yoselin walk out of the gate and get into her car. Then Scarlett turned around and went back to the house. Scarlett returned to the living room. She took the earring from the jewelry box and put it back in the jewelry tray in the checkroom. After all, it was Alexis' birthday present to her. It would be a shame to lose it. Scarlett was surprised by Yoselin's sudden visit.
Chapter 360The password was the same as before.Scarlett's finger paused slightly. Then, she transferred sixty-eight dollars to Raymond."Here’s the fare."She handed the phone back to him and then walked inside the hotel without looking at Raymond.Raymond slowly followed behind her. His hand holding the phone moved slightly.He was a little greedy for the temperature of Scarlett that remained on the phone.Raymond remembered that day when he fed her medicine. They had a kiss that lasted seven or eight seconds. He looked at Scarlett's lips and couldn't help but stare at her.He wanted to kiss her again, but he held back.They were alone in the elevator.Scarlett lowered her head and froze when she saw the leaf on the leg of Raymond's black suit pants.That was the leaf of the cemetery dwarf tree. Raymond had really been to the cemetery.She remembered what he had just said and her face could not help but blush.She seemed to have misunderstood him, but she couldn’t be blamed
