Edward was breathing heavily and his face was full of gloom. He looked even paler than before.Ellena looked at the full of gloom ‘Nicklaus’ and had a glimpse of his bloody hand. Blood was tickling down and soaking the floor. “You… What are you doing?”As soon as she finished speaking, she quickly looked at the wall, examining if something was broken. She was already in this state and if this ‘Nicklaus’ break the wall, how the hell she was gone to pay?She really wanted to shout at him. But at this moment he looked very scary just like a ghost. Looking him like this she didn’t dare to say anything.But she didn’t put anything strange into her dishes. How could it make him run out and cripple himself?And even if he wanted to hurt himself, did he need to do it in front of her house and destroy her property? This mad man!Edward didn’t respond her and was about to leave when his cell
Edward’s father? Frederick Arnoult?The rich and noble man who attracted countless women in Herton City when he was young? The same man who grew such a massive business empire?He was actually calling her? For what?A shiver ran down her spine as Ellena was shocked for a several seconds before she found words to communicate. “Hello, Sir…”Even though he was her father-in-law, she could not utter the word ‘Dad.’“If you have time tonight, I want to treat you a dinner.” Frederick’s voice was calm and firm tempered by years of trials. Though it sounded like an order, it wasn’t offensive.Ellena understood one thing between his words. Although Frederick gave her a choice, she had no room for denials. She could only agree in response.“Sure, I have time.”“Great. I’ll send the driver to pick you up, see you tonight.”He hung up af
Hearing his words and looking at his smile, Ellena was stunned to silence. What shocked her was that the person in charge of such a rich and powerful family was actually this much kind.As he raised his hand and motioned her to sit, she couldn’t help but follow his instructions. She silently pinched her hand, suspecting if she was dreaming.After a few seconds, she recovered from her shock and quickly said, “Hello, I’m Ellena smith.”This time, she wasn’t pretending to be dumb, but she was really startled by Frederick Arnoult. Her heart was beating so fast that it seemed to be jump out of her chest in the next moment.“Don’t be shy. Now, you are my daughter-in-law and a member of Arnoult family. So just make yourself at home.”As he spoke, he picked up the kettle next to him and poured her a glass of water. His eyes showing an unfamiliar look, most probably kindness, that she never got before.
Ellena was surprised. It took her a long time to resister what was happening. She looked at the bodyguard for some minutes, wondering if she was dreaming.So did Edward finally want to see her?A part of her was happy because she was finally going to see her husband. But the part of her felt an indescribable uneasiness.It was rumored that Edward was extremely fickle and cold. If she met him, could she be able to control him? Or could she be able to live a normal life with him?Lots of questions were wondering in her head, as she knocked on the door of the study.She stepped into the study and before she could observe the situation inside, she heard a voice of a man.“Paul, who is it?”The voice was very hoarse just like a desert which had gone years without water. It was quite terrifying.As the voice fade, a suited man standing beside the table stared at her and said, “Master, it’s Madame, your wife.&r
Ellena did not expect to hear such harsh words. She withdrew from the chair and reached out to adjust the glasses on the bridge of her nose. “Oh.”She knew Edward disliked her.But she didn’t feel very sad about his reaction because there were the usual words she heard all her life.After all, Naomi was supposed to be his bride. But unfortunately he was tied with an ugly bumpkin like her. Anyone in his place would be angry and dislike it.So Edward’s reaction didn’t surprise her lot.Even though he despised her, she didn’t feel anything but complete indifference.“If there is nothing, I’ll go out first.”Edward didn’t say anything, so she didn’t have any reason to stay. She turned around and left the study.As the door closed, Edward turned his chair and looking in the direction of the door.This was the first time he had encountered just a woman. Not only
Ellena found that Paul was not looking at her. Perhaps, he hadn’t seen her standing close to ‘Nicklaus’. That was good, she was safe for at least now. She needed to think of a way to get rid of this man. So she slipped into the kitchen silently. Seeing she entered into the kitchen, Edward sat down on the sofa. He had a small smile of victory on his face. It was obvious that he didn’t have any mood to talk with his assistant. So Paul left. Even if he had worked for the man for many years, he had no idea what his boss was thinking. So it was better to leave it as it was. … In the kitchen, Ellena opened the fridge and found fresh vegetables and meat. Not thinking too much, she grabbed some meat and vegetables. But what the heck she was gonna to make for him? Just as she was about to chop the vegetables, something flashed in her mind. Didn’t Nicklaus make breakfast the first day she arrived here? But there were not any maids
Ellena went through all the articles one and one including some pictures uploaded by the netizens.She tried to think about it in an optimistic way. She didn’t have a Weibo account. Otherwise, she would receive tons of scolding from these angry netizens.She looked at these articles again and again. Even under the thick foundation, one could see her flushed face and dark eyes.Looking at those insulting words, it was impossible not to get angry. After everything that had happened, and after everything she had done, she was not going to stand still anymore.She took out her phone and called Naomi.After a long time, Naomi picked up the phone.“Why do you call me now? Is there anything wrong?” Naomi’s voice was gentle and calm, as if she didn’t know anything on the internet.Ellena sneered. A part of her really wanted to let go of the act she had put and teach them all a lesson. But it wouldn’t be int
Edward looked at her flushed face, but his expression remained indifferent. “Are you in trouble?”His voice was calm, but if one heard carefully, they’d discover the hidden concern in his voice. It could’ve warmed any woman’s heart. But Ellena was just now any woman.Ellena pinched her blanket and said coldly, “None of your business.”However, her cold face had no threat to him at all. Although his composure didn’t change very much, there was a flicker of anger flashed in his eyes.“Of course it’s none of my business. But if you beg me, I’ll consider helping you.” Edward looked at her indifferently. If looks could kill, she would’ve been buried ten feet under.However, Ellena would never beg him.Edward looked at her deeply, turned and walked out.He had only walked a couple of steps when he met Paul. Paul held a tablet near to his chest. And looking at his
