Chapter 1 Can You Stay?
Heavy rain enveloped the dark night like spilled black ink. A flash of lightning split the night sky open and illuminated a pale face.Susan Shelby held onto the umbrella as she looked into the distance nervously.Julian had promised her that he would be home tonight, but it was already 10 o’clock, yet he was still nowhere to be seen.Had he not kept his word again?Susan tightened her grip on the umbrella while her eyes contained a flash of helplessness.Suddenly, a bright light flashed in the distance. A luxury car that seemed to merge with the dark night appeared.Julian! It was Julian’s car.Susan hurried over excitedly.Screech! When the car came to a halt, half of Susan’s clothes were soaked by the splash of water. Nonetheless, she was oblivious to it as she cheerfully said, “Julian, you…”“Idiot, don’t you know how to hide?” Before she could finish, a man came down from the car angrily.The man’s facial features were exquisite and there was an indescribable hint of m

Chapter 2 I Have A Date
Julian Shaw pried open each of Susan Shelby’s fingers and then glared coldly at her. “I’m sorry. I have a date tonight.”“Then, can you ask that person to come over?” Susan was getting more nervous.He squinted. “Woman, what games are you playing at?”Susan flinched, then said softly, “Mom heard that you haven’t been home for half a month since you’ve been partying too hard outside. She...she’s worried about your health and wants me to think of a way to make you stay. Otherwise, she’ll stop paying my elder brother’s medical fees.”She lowered her head and dared not look at Julian’s expression. After a while, a chuckle was heard in the room. “So, that’s the reason. Haha, it really is the reason for this show. Oh yeah, if it wasn’t for your brother, you wouldn’t put in such commendable effort.”Julian’s words contained an indescribable hint of self-deprecation.She bit her lower lip. “Then...can you…”“Okay,” he said unambiguously, “As you wish. I’ll come home in the future, bu

Chapter 3 Anger
Cheryl Young’s eyes turned seductive instantly. Julian Shaw actually had a kink for that. Without hesitation, she gave it all she had.Despite the woman’s alluring moans, Julian showed no response at all.There was no way Susan Shelby was a generous wife who did not care about anything. As a result, he wanted to see what her limit was!Outside the door, Susan heard the woman moaning in the bedroom. Her face was so red that she felt as if it was on fire while her hands were gripping her clothes uncomfortably.Did Julian intentionally make her stand at the door to hear that?In the public eye, the goddess was cold and classy, hence Susan did not expect her voice to be so alluring. Even as a woman herself, she could not stand it.‘Julian Shaw, you lucky b*stard!’After a while when she had gone numb from listening, the door suddenly burst open. Julian was dressed in a loose bathrobe and seemed to be smirking at Susan.“Julian, your servant is really obedient. She really stood here for so

Chapter 4 Confession
“What?” Cheryl lifted her head with a flash of shock in her eyes.Was there no need to shoot the advertisement anymore? She had spent so much time getting this advertisement.“Julian, I…” Being the docile creature she was, she quickly replied, “I admit that was my mistake. This advertisement…”“You can leave now.” Julian refused to listen to her explanation.“I…” Reluctantly, she did not understand the mistake that landed her in this nerve-wracking situation.“Do you need me to repeat?” Julian’s eyes glimmered with a dangerous flash.As Cheryl gritted her teeth and dared not say anything, she took her bag and left.Julian looked at Susan in concern then walked over. “Does it...hurt?”Susan shook her head and looked at him in a daze. “You...Why…?” Similar to Cheryl, she could not comprehend why he had just thrown a tantrum a moment ago. Was it for her sake?Nevertheless, Susan would never be so self-obsessed.Seeing through her doubts, he sneered, “What? Do you think I got angry because

Chapter 5 Difficult Client
Susan was speechless as she thought inwardly, ‘Young man, I’m trying to save you!’Julian’s face turned even sourer at the sight of their interaction. He glanced coldly at Susan and said, “That’s great!” After that, he turned around and left. “What did Chairman Shaw mean?” Chance was confused. Meanwhile, Susan was secretly cursing in her heart. She would have to bear most of the consequences of Chance’s dumb move. She slumped into her chair at the thought of it.“Susan, you haven’t told me if you’ll accept me,” Chance probed stubbornly.Just as Susan was about to reply to him, everybody’s mobile phone started to beep suddenly, so all of them checked their mobile phones.In the company chat group, the almost elusive CEO Julian Shaw sent a message all of a sudden. It was only a short sentence.“Starting from today onwards, any courtyard between employees is forbidden!”Susan was speechless. Given the glaring typo in that sentence, one could imagine how agitated CEO Shaw was!“Starting

Chapter 8 I, Julian Shaw’s Woman
Luke had no expression as he looked into Susan’s eyes. There was even slight disgust in his gaze.Susan felt as though she had just been thrown into icy-cold water, freezing her heart. She knew that Luke treated her the way because he did not remember her anymore. However, her heartache felt incredibly real at that moment. She fought her tears back and looked at Luke stubbornly. “What if I refuse to apologize?”Luke snorted. “I advise you to obey me. Otherwise, the Jenkins family…”“What will the Jenkins family do?

After a while

Chapter 9 Elder Brother
“Julian, I didn’t meet him on purpose. The client asked for a meetup and I only knew that her last name was Ainsley, but I didn’t know that she was Mandy Ainsley and that she would bring Luke Jenkins along,” Susan said softly.Her subtle explanation made Julian feel better. He looked at Susan expressionlessly. “If you see those two people next time, please turn around and leave right away, understand?”Because it occurred to him that it sounded as if he was jealous, Julian immediately added, “Hmph, knowing your level of promiscuity, you might just get involved with them. Anyway, the Shaw family will not lose face over this.”When Susan turned slightly pale, Julian regretted possibly having been too harsh with his words. That was not even what he meant. Nevertheless, it was impossible for him to apologize.“I know. I’ll stay away from him,” she said in a soft voice.“Okay then,” he said uninterestedly.The journey back to the Shaw residence was quiet.After Susan changed her clothes, sh

“Your elder brother seems to be coding.” Julian raised his eyebrows.“Coding?” Susan blinked. “I didn’t know he could do that.”“I’m not too sure about it. It just looks like it.” “Oh.” No matter what her elder brother was doing, it did his current condition good to have found something to distract himself.Susan looked at Jacob for a long time.After a long while, Jacob stopped and turned to look at Susan before breaking into a faint smile. “Susan.”“Brother.” Susan could not help being excited. When he was first diagnosed with schizophrenia, he could not even recognize her. His condition improved recently. At least, he had not forgotten her. “Susan,” Jacob repeated as he smiled. The only thing he knew how to say was her name.“Brother,” she replied patiently.“Susan.”“Brother.”“Susan.”“Brother.”Both of them continued the meaningless conversation. Julian felt it was strange, but looking at how happy Susan was, he was reluctant to disturb them and just waited at the side.Susan
