Rosaline died, and Sean personally put Jane into the women's prison for it. "Take good care of her"— his words made her three years in prison a living hell and even cost her a kidney. Before she went to prison, Jane said, "I didn't kill her," but Sean was unmoved. After her release from prison, she said, "I killed Rosaline, I'm guilty as sin!" Sean was livid as he said, "Shut up! I don't want to hear you say that!" Jane laughed. "Yes, I killed Rosaline Summers, and I did three years in prison for it." She escaped, and Sean scoured the whole world for her. Sean said, "I'll give you my kidney, Jane, if you'll give me your heart." But Jane looked up at Sean and said, "I don't love you anymore, Sean…"View More
Amidst the rain, a woman walked out of the East Emperor building and out into the storm. She had found the umbrella from the storage closet. No matter how horrible that man was, there was one thing he got right.She was a deserter. A coward. How could she let that slide?She walked to the curb and saw that there was already a black Bentley waiting there.It only took her a glance to recognize the owner of that car. Who could it be but that arrogant Sean Stewart?She walked over, and the car window rolled down, revealing the driver’s face.“Please get in, Miss Dunn.” Dos got out of the car and walked around to the back seat, opening the car door.She stepped into the car, and Dos returned to the driver’s seat.“Did he tell you to come?”Dos heard the voice from the back seat and raised his head to look at the rearview mirror, at the woman in the back. She was extremely quiet, her face turned to the side as she silently looked outside the window. He did not understand this wo
The man stood in front of the closet, wordlessly looking at the woman who was crying her eyes out inside. His throat bobbed with all of the words he should say but could not. Suddenly, he bent his tall body and reached out his arms for her.“Don’t touch me!” she roared abruptly and loudly in her hoarse voice. He saw the deep hatred in her eyes, and the sharp pain in his heart spread all through his body. After he gave her another look, though, he continued to reach out to her.“I told you not to touch me!” Jane looked at him like he was her greatest enemy. Whenever he tried reaching out to her, she would react like a porcupine, aiming her prickles at both him and herself.Sean continued to reach out to her without a word. The next second, he felt a piercing pain between his thumb and forefinger. He frowned slightly, looking at the woman who was biting his hand viciously with her sharp teeth. The man had spent his life hurting people, but no one had ever hurt him before. Now, he wa
“Are you here… to laugh at me?” Jane raised her head and forced a tragic smile at the man in front of her. “You must be ecstatic to see me like this, right? Mr. Stewart. The worse off I am, the happier you are, right?”Haha, the worse off she was, the more he would feel like he had avenged his dearly departed Rosaline, right?“Mr. Stewart… You really don’t have to do all this. The things you were doing before don’t even feel like you anymore. I had been wondering why you suddenly changed your tack toward me… I see. So this is why.”Sean’s pitch-black pupils dilated and his breathing caught in his throat. He lowered his eyelids and looked at the woman curled up in a ball in the closet, his eyes filled with pain and affection.He suddenly asked in his low voice, “What do you see? What do you mean, why?”His voice was low, but every word reached the woman’s ears. She tightened her arms around herself, her heart pounding with emotion… How could he still ask that with a straight face?
For some days after that, Jane seemed to have changed into a completely different person. She became even more quiet and stoic, but at the same time she seemed to be more obedient… to Sean, at least.She never went against anything he said.However, her obedience was hiding a heart desperate to escape!She hastily handled everything about Storge at breakneck speed, leading the way through all the reforms. She did to the Dunns exactly what they did to her after she went to prison, decisively using Vivienne and the others to render the higher-ups powerless. Like a whale swallowing a worm, she aggressively shut down all of the internal conflicts in as short a timeframe as possible.She had Vivienne and the others to handle the company’s inner workings now. All she had to do was trust them completely and give them her full support.Jane’s real job here was to visit each of Storge’s old business partners, reigniting their initial deals.Of course, this was not going to be an easy task
Firing the receptionist would prove to be the easiest part. After a day of cleaning up the mess there, Jane was bone-tired, but she did not dare to show even a hint of weariness.Only heaven knew how she had nearly fled in fear the second she stepped into the chairperson’s office.However, she told herself, ‘No. I can’t.’That was right, she could not run. That was why she had to face everything and conquer everything. It did not matter what she experienced during those three years in jail. It did not matter if her personality had warped during those three years, and it did not matter if those three years had cost her the dignity to stand with her head held high in front of everyone else. Starting from today, she had to straighten her back and overcome her fear until she could make it up to her grandfather’s hopes and her own heart.What Jane did not know was that the man, so cruel and cold-blooded in her eyes, had driven the car away from the building only to make a detour and tur
Jane did not feel better when Sean did that.On the other hand, she was almost driven crazy by this man’s unusual behavior.She was like a trapped animal. She was slowly being forced to the corner by him. He left her with no room to run.She did not know what he wanted to do to her, but she could not stand him being like this. She would rather this man treat her like how he did before. She did not want this man’s sudden warmth.It was so scary.It was even scarier than him sending her to prison. Jane was horrified. “Mr. Stewart, why?” Finally, she could not stand it anymore. She closed her eyes, and when she opened them once again, she asked him.Why was he so gentle toward her all of a sudden? Did Sean know how to be gentle?Yes!However, he had never been gentle to her.The man placed the hairdryer down and pushed her hair behind her ear. He did not answer her question. Instead, he merely said, “Have a good rest.”He turned around, and Jane wanted to pull the edge of his
At the same time on the 28th floor of East Emperor.In the ensuite bathroom of the room, the woman took a bath and stood in front of the mirror. She looked lost. She was even more lost when she thought about the future. She did not expect to take back Storge Trust. That had not been in her plan. It messed everything up.However, she did not regret it.Even if her grandfather was biased, he had doted on her a lot when he was still alive. Jane understood that there was concern in her grandfather’s fake strictness. Otherwise, there would be no Storge Trust. If Grandpa was really only concerned about whether she would be a threat to the Dunns, he could have just followed the unspoken rule of the rich and famous. He could have just set her up for an arranged marriage. Before he passed away, her grandfather even held her hand and told her to take good care of Storge Trust.Now, Storge Trust was once again in her possession. In a flash, the dark clouds above her head were gone. She wa
Sean had already taken Jane away. In a corner away from the crowded party in the Dunn household, Zach touched her chin while ruminating. His low voice uttered, “Jane Dunn?”Today, Jane had given him a whole new outlook on her. Zach’s eyes lit up as he became interested. He pursed his lips together. He felt free and unconstrained. He placed his hands into the pockets of his pants and left the Dunn household.“Guess who I saw today.” He called Haydn while he was walking to his car. “You won’t be able to guess it.”“Since I won’t be able to, then I won’t ask.” Rumbling noises came from the other end of the phone. Haydn’s voice sounded absent-minded. “Zach, do you want to come to play? I’m at Magnificent View. The new ladies here are fun.”Zach listened to Haydn’s absent-minded voice. He did not want to pay attention to him. He said, “Jane. I met Jane at the Dunn household.”There was a brief silence on the other end of the phone. Then, the sound of the man chuckling sounded. “I was
