What the fuck are you still doing here?! “ “ Get out of my life, Lena! Leave! Just leave like they all did! I don’t need anyone to help me! “ The cold man grabbed her shoulders and squeezed them harshly. “ Why are you still staying with someone like me? Why? Why are you still dealing with all of this? “ “ Denzel, you’re hurting me “ “ It’s because of the kids, right? You’re here because I forced you to because I used the kids against you.

🏵️ CHAPTER 68 🏵️ Denzel woke up the next morning with a pounding headache. He reached out to the water and pill already waiting for him on the lampstand and took them. Denzel tried to recall what happened yesterday, wondering how he was able to drive himself home after drinking that much alcohol and how he ended up ok the bed with only his boxers. He couldn't remember anything. He was about to climb off the bed when the door opened and Lena stepped in with a tray of food. Seeing he was awake, Lena flashed Denzel a smile, walking up to the bed. " Good morning " She placed the tray aside. " How are you feeling now? " Denzel ignored her question but instead he demanded. " What happened last night? " His question made Lena remember every hurtful word he told her last night but she knew he wasn't in his right sense. Not wanting to bring it up again, " You came back drunk so I had to help you upstairs and undress you. It's nothing much. I'm your wife after all " Denzel frowned.
🏵️ CHAPTER 69 🏵️Lena and Denzel ate breakfast silently while the cold man tried to avoid Lena's gaze as much as possible. He finally looked up when he felt Lena's gaze transfixed on him.

I'm already full watching you eat "" Have I ever told you this, hubby? "" You're so handsome that if you were a lollipop, I will lick you a million times and bite into you, hundreds of millions of times without getting tired " Denzel almost choked on what he was chewing and his eyes widened." What? " It came out faintly as he gaped at Lena in shock." I said if you were a lollipop, I will lick you continually until you're no longer sweet but I would still keep licking you " The short woman pouted and blinked innocently.Denzel snorted in disbelief." Are you ok? Did you perhaps hit your head on somet
🏵️ CHAPTER 70🏵️ Denzel entered his office only to see a certain short woman seated on his chair with a serious and cold face, her eyes focused on the files she was going through. She was relaxed fully on the chair, spiraling it around like she was the one in charge. " What the fuck are you doing here? " Lena paused and slowly looked up at Denzel with brows folded in a deep frown. " What time is it, Mr. Brenton? " She demanded much to Denzel's confusion. " What? " " Answer my question, Mr. Brenton. What time is it? " " 09: 25? " " And what time does the office open? " Denzel understood what Lena was trying to do and immediately let out a scoff. The cold man decided to play along. " 07 AM " He answered. " And you're at work by 09:25? Where went you? What were you doing at home? Being mean to your wife? " Denzel almost laughed seeing how serious Lena's face was. " What's so funny, Mr. Brenton? Do you think we came here to play? " The short woman scowled at him. " Do you k

By the time she was done reading the nonsense written, she rushed out of the house and hailed a cab, heading straight to the office.Not only were there articles about the pictures, even the headlines of the news that morning were about it. It has circulated so fast that there were multiple videos online about those pictures and videos about people talking about them.It turned out the pictures were uploaded yesterday and a lot of people have already seen them." There is no other explanation for these pictures. The pictures said everything. Looking at it, one could vividly see it wasn't edited or anything"" It is obvious, definitely no two ways about it.

🏵️ CHAPTER 72 🏵️ Denzel was taken aback as Lena suddenly ran to him in a hug. Lena on the other hand didn't even realize when she hugged him. She was so stressed out and scared that the only that came into her mind was hugging Denzel, thinking that maybe he must have read the news and is angry or stressed out too. " Lena..." Lena was snapped back to her senses. She looked up at Denzel whose brows were folded in confusion. " Are you ok? " Denzel was worried. He could feel her body trembling slightly and the audible hammering of her heart. Lena slowly pulled out. " Are you ok? Did something happen? " With Denzel's questions, Lena let out a heave of relief. His questions showed that Denzel haven't seen the news yet. At least that is enough to make her relax. Now all she had to do was to make sure he doesn't see those articles. " Lena..." Denzel called, snapping Lena out of her thoughts. Lena forced a smile up her lips immediately. " Are you ok? " Denzel demanded again. " Oh

I know you all are here to see Mr. Brenton… but unfortunately, Mr. Brenton isn’t in a position to attend to all of you.
