"Rumour has it that Chris is a forthright and decisive man, so it has never occurred to me that he is such a rogue."Angel cast a sidelong glance at Chris and snapped at him. Thinking back to when Chris diligently urged her to drink last night, she could not help but suspect that this was his sneaky plan to get her drunk so that he could have his way with her.And was this not what happened?The next day, when she woke up, she found out that the two of them had slept together and were both naked.So, how could she not be suspicious of his intentions?"Angel, you are not the disappointed one here. Last night, after downing a few glasses of beer, you transformed into she Wolf and pounced on me. You are so aggressive, and you force yourself upon me. You even complimented me on my good looks and said that I am the most handsome man you've seen so far."Chris was dangerously closer to her while describing Angel's Spectacular feast of the night before as though it happened. Then he added, "
"Mommy, you are awake."Angela's sweet little face appeared in front of Angel, and she said, "Daddy has made breakfast. You have to quickly get up for breakfast.Angel took a few seconds before reacting and reached out to pinch Angela's face."Mommy will be out in a second."Angela nodded.Angel got out of bed, re-tied her hair, and took Angela's hands in hers, ready to go out of the room.Mommy, I heard from Angelo that you slept with Daddy last night?"Angel all tripped over her legs that somehow got entangled with each other."Ahem... Angelo said that?""Yup. He even said that you were hugging Daddy so tightly and would not let go. And you kept kissing Daddy on the cheeks." Angel felt like she could drop dead on the spot that very moment."Angela, last night mommy had a little too much to drink, so it was not something I intended to do. You are still too young to know too much.""Mm-hmm, Mommy, I got it.Angela nodded obediently in an adorable manner and said, "Daddy told me that w
"This is what I am proposing, you can choose not to adopt it." Angel gave a light cough in an attempt to cover up her discomfort when she spoke.Chris's smile widened, and his eyes were filled with so much affection that threatened to spill out of the rims."You are the mother of my children. My future wife. Would I dare not to listen to you? I don't want to be sent out of the room and be punished for an entire night of kneeling on pins and needles outside the door. How miserable that would be."That said, he did not forget to gather the support of the twins and said, " Angelo, Angela, Daddy is right, isn't he?"Angelo kept a straight face, but his eyes seemed to be saying, "Daddy, can you please not embarrass yourself in front of everyone here?"On the other hand, Angela, who was holding her face with both hands, was very supportive of Chris and said, "Daddy cannot kneel all night on pins and needles. That would hurt too much."But the next second, she tilted her head, changed the to
Angel stared at Chris back as he walked away and fell into a momentary trance. She did not realize that her right hand was subconsciously grasping the chopsticks so tightly.And bulging veins were appearing on the back of her hands from the amount of strength she was exerting. There was a look of worry on Angela's face as she cautiously said, "Mommy, don't worry. Daddy will come back when he is not angry anymore."Angelo, on the other hand, maintained a straight face and did not seem very pleased. He was secretly contemplating whether he should eliminate Chris from the list of suitors pursuing his mother.Last night, Chris took the chance to bully his mommy when she was drunk. This morning, he dared to throw his temper at her and openly show her such an angry look. How could it be alright for them to get married?He was initially quite satisfied with Chris, but now, he could not help but give the man an ax in his heart."Mommy, don't be sad. We can do without such a Daddy. I will find
Those who knew what was going on would naturally know that the man who appeared yesterday as Angel's backer was someone with power and authority. And this was why the normally arrogant and domineering Hope was reduced to kneeling to beg for mercy.Angel looked down at Hope condescendingly. The look in her eyes was steady and firm."Hope, are you sure you want to make a scene and stir up trouble In front of everyone again? I don't mind asking Mr. Williams if he would like to do something to the Chris's cooperation in advance. What do you think?"After a brief moment, she bent down to get closer to Hope before whispering this into the latter's ear.Hope could not help but shudder. She looked up to meet Angel's cold, mocking gaze, a good the fear in her heart intensified.The thought of Mr. Williams's ruthless means was fearsome enough to wipe out all the little traces of nasty notions she had in mind.She propped herself with both hands and reluctantly got up from the ground. Feeling a
"My daughter is barely five days old. If her father is not around when she turns a month old, what will others think? And the business partners won't want to have anything to do with James if they knew that he has been in jail."Angel did not even bother raising an eyelid in response. She simply went on with her task of checking the wound where the C-section was done with an indifferent attitude.She was now the doctor responsible for Hope's postpartum care. She would draw a clear line between business and private matters and would not take things personal with Hope.This would be a disrespect to the medical profession."Angel, can you take pity on my granddaughter and ask Mr. Williams to show mercy on James?"The next second, Mrs. Meyer was crying audibly. Then, her lean figure leaped over to kneel in front of Angel. Shamelessly, she wrapped her arms around Angel's neck and pleaded, Hope and her baby cannot live without James."Angel looked at her with downcast eyes, raised her legs,
"All these years I have been worrying about you guys, wondering if you can with life outside. More than once, I even had dreams of your father reprimanding me for not taking good care of you guys. And that made me so uneasy and guilty."Initially, he thought that saying something like this would at least earn him some empathy from Angel. Instead, he heard her sneer.Mr. Meyer should feel guilty. After all, you have trampled on my father and benefitted greatly from his fall and demise."Mr. Meyer felt a trace of apprehension in his heart, and the look in his eyes was getting increasingly helpless.""Angel, I know there are many misunderstandings between you and the Meyer family, but I did think of you as my daughter."He shamelessly wanted to go on with this tactic of using kinship to move Angel's emotions, but she was not buying it, "Mr. Meyer, please move aside. I still have other ladies to tend to.""Angel, must you...""Get out of the way"Angel suddenly snapped at him.Mr. Meyer's
The leap bodyguard stepped forward and presented the bouquet to Angel, "Ms. Johnson, this is from Mr. Williams. Please forgive him."Angel was still at a loss as she reached for the bouquet in a daze. The rest of the bodyguards quickly followed suit when they saw how easily Angel had accepted the bouquet. As they were too many bouquets, Angel had to place some of them along the corridor.It was time for Angel to make his appearance once all the flowers had been given to Angel. Amid the cheers from the excited crowd, Chris walked into Angel's sight slowly. His domineering presence could hardly be missed as he held a small, exquisite box in his hand.Chris stopped in front of Angel and reached out to take her hand in his. Like a perfect gentleman, he planted a kiss on the back of Angel's hand and said, "I'm sorry, honey. It's all my fault. I'm such a jerk to have made you angry. Can you please forgive me?As long as you are willing to forgive me, I'll kneel on the washboard as punishmen
