Scarlett Thomas said, "My obsession is too strong. I will go mad if I'm alive but can't embrace you."Everyone had their obsessions; Scarlett's obsession was Jude Simmons.She was so infatuated with him that he became her obsession—an obsession that hurt both herself and other people.……Jude Simmons said, "I'm glad that she's dead. Let's celebrate with some drinks."Yet, he asked his friend in a drunken stupor, "Did I miss out on something very important in my life?""Yes, you missed out on the only idiot in this world who loves you solely because you're Jude Simmons!"View More
After Scarlett returned to the ward upstairs, Eric asked her, "Is Neil doing okay?""The nurse said that his injuries weren't serious and that he left after his operation."Eric was a clever person and had an inkling or two after hearing her answer, so he didn't question her further.Jude survived the 24 hours after his operation and gradually regained consciousness the next day.The first person that he saw was the person he had been waiting for sitting by the bed. After hearing his movement, she turned around and asked, "You're awake?"Jude was still in a daze. He couldn't quite distinguish whether he was awake or dreaming."Is... Is that really you? This isn't a dream?""Dream? Did you dream of me a lot?""Yeah. I always see you in my dreams..."Scarlett's unclouded eyes sparkled as she glanced at him."Eric said that you regretted it so much that you went insane a little, and that you've really fallen in love with me."On the bed, Jude's jaw was stretched taut. His nervo
Audrey collapsed on the floor with a loud thud."My sister's heart? Is this her heart? I wanted a healthy, lively heart to love him and finally got it after all my scheming."But you're telling me that at the end of the day, I'm just loving him for Aurelia? Have I simply been using her heart to love Jude in her place?"Audrey looked horrified. "What does that make me? I thought I had won after successfully stealing my sister's heart. I thought it was finally my victory for once. But the truth is that my body had simply become a container for my sister's heart?""What do you mean by successfully stealing your sister's heart?" A sharp-minded Eric immediately noticed the discrepancy in her words.Audrey was panicking so much that her mind was a complete mess. All of her defenses were down and she was at her weakest point. She started laughing like a madwoman. "Hahaha! Want to know? I don't mind telling you! I was the one who orchestrated my sister's car accident. Spencer was a moron.
Audrey held her face and screamed, "What gives you the right to hit me?""What right? I'm Scarlett, Jude's legal wife!" Scarlett retorted. Did she need another reason to do so?"You're lying! Everyone knows that Jude divorced you a long time ago!""Everyone also thinks I died, but did I?" Scarlett's heart was racing."Do you know who I am?" Audrey was starting to go crazy.Scarlett's eyes were bloodshot but her gaze was razor-sharp. "Whoever you are, you don't have the right to affect someone's life!"She continued, "I don't want to waste any time on you. Please get out of here. I don't want to see you around."Jude was still in the emergency operation theater; the person in front of her wasn't worthy of her attention at all."I'm Audrey Summer!" Audrey couldn't accept being scorned. "Did you forget me? Did you forget my calls? You're the one who stole everything that should have been mine!"Audrey began screaming at Scarlett, her emotions pouring out like a broken dam that co
Jude's pupils shifted before he slowly looked away from Audrey.He looked like he didn't want to hear anything from her.Scarlett had no mood to deal with the woman who had appeared out of nowhere. With bloodshot eyes, she watched as Jude abruptly coughed up a copious amount of blood. Her expression changed and she became nervous."Please hang on, Jude. If you dare to die, I'll... I'll hate you for the rest of my life!"The man lying on the road chuckled, prompting more blood to flow out of his mouth. His smile was so unpleasant that her eyes turned red. "You were the one who said to start over, Jude. Are you going back on your word now?"Jude's lips moved but couldn't produce any sound. Still, the shape of his mouth made it obvious that he was saying, "Don't cry."Scarlett cried even harder."I'm not sad, not at all. There... There's nothing between us anymore. The past is the past, so if you die now, I won't shed any tears for you, not a single tear!"Jude continued to force
"Neil, I'm over here!" Scarlett immediately spotted Neil's car and waved at it.Neil slowly stopped the car next to her and got down. He flashed a cheerful smile at her."Come in, Scarlett.""Sure." She opened the car door and got in."Neil, since you're driving a private vehicle, do you think you'll be able to send me out of Pearl City?""Your wish is my command, Scarlett."Scarlett sighed in relief after hearing his reply. Just as she was about to smile, someone abruptly opened the door and yanked her out of the car."Ouch!"She raised her head to look at the person who yanked her while kneading her arm. Immediately, she felt like a deflated ball. "Why are you here?"Jude's lanky figure was standing in front of Scarlett as he looked coldly at Neil from outside the car.He hadn't fully understood Olivia's intention after receiving her call, but one thing for sure... he would never let Neil take Scarlett away.His handsome face seemed encased in frost as he stared at the man
Jude's expression darkened as he slowly picked up his phone and dialed a number. "Watch Scarlett for me. Airport, high-speed rail, car, any vehicle she can use to run away. Send more men to keep an eye on them. If Scarlett escapes, it'll be on you."The smile on Scarlett's pretty face immediately turned stiff.Jude smirked.Scarlett bit her lips. She believed that Jude wouldn't do anything to her in front of the officer, so she opened the door and exited the car."Take your time, President Simmons. I'm leaving."Jude didn't stop her for he knew that she couldn't run out of Pearl City anyway.Scarlett felt uneasy.She took out her phone and called Olivia. "Come and get me now. I'm about to die from the heat!""What's going on? Aren't you supposed to be at the airport?" Olivia asked.Scarlett sighed. "No thanks to Jude! I was too careless this time and actually ran into him. I have no idea what he's up to. It's like he's hell-bent on taking revenge on me. He keeps following me w
"It's all in the past? Is that purely your opinion?" He was raging at how desperately Scarlett wanted to leave him. She would even cast away her company, life, and even her remaining three million dollars... Did she hate him that much?!"President Simmons! I'm really tired of talking to you. Just pretend that I didn't say anything. I'm really, really tired," Scarlet said, finally telling the truth. She couldn't afford to play this game of love.This instantly reminded Jude of Eric's words: "I would've done the same thing if I were Scarlett. Having been hurt by love, it makes every sense to run away and hide in fear."She has merely become timid in front of love."He lowered his head and saw that she was trembling. Even though she was trying her best to stay calm, her shaking body had betrayed her panic. His heart turned soft, as did his gaze. He reached out to her, but she tried to avoid his hand instead.Still, he managed to cover her forehead with his large hand and caress her r
"If you're just here to trick me, you can stop it. I'm not the same Scarlett that you knew anymore." Scarlett was getting angry, too. It took her so much to end their relationship and decide to let herself off for once and for all. Yet, this man had come to her saying that he loved her and wanted to start over."No, I can't let myself get hurt again."Besides, Jude has someone he loves!"The thought of Jude's beloved made Scarlett's entire body tremble. Not only was she angry at herself for breaking them up, but she was also upset at Jude for telling her such a bold lie when that woman existed."I'm no longer the same person I've been, and I don't trust even a single word that you've said!"Although angry, she had no right to be. These two emotions made her feel so conflicted that her heart hurt.Jude's black pupils turned darker. Suddenly, he grabbed her chin and kissed her hard in public. After their kiss, he raised his head and looked at her face. His voice was low as he asked
