Chapter 112 Nothing Happened That Night
Anaya went back home and took a shower. She walked to the living room while wiping her hair.
Sammo was walking around the coffee table. Anaya walked over, rubbed the dog’s head, and took a look at her phone.
There was an unread message from the private detective.
“Ms. Dutt, Frank’s subordinates seem to be looking for someone lately.”
“Looking for who?” Anaya replied.
“I don’t know yet. Those people are very tight-lipped. I didn’t find much.”
“Keep watching them. And keep me in the loop.”
After the call, Anaya carried Sammo into the bathroom to give it a shower, but her thoughts wandered away.
Now that Frank was guilty of so many crimes, his top priority should be a reduced sentence. Why did he put so much effort into looking for a man?
Could it be that this guy could offer some kind of help to Frank?
Anaya was completely confused, and she didn’t dwell on it. After washing up, she went to bed.
When Anaya woke up the next day, the first thing she did was call Aracely.
Last night, Aracely was taken away by Winston. Anaya didn’t know how Aracely was now.
Anaya waited quite a long time before the call was answered. It seemed the person on the other end of the line had just woken up, and her voice was a little sleepy.
“Hello? Who is it?”
“Me. Where are you now?” Anaya asked.
“Huh?” Aracely was a little confused. “Ain’t I at your place…”
Aracely seemed to have suddenly realized something, and she sat bolt upright in the bed.
Wait for a second! Why was she in her own room?
No! No way! She didn’t want to see Winston for now!
Aracely got up in a hurry, put on her slippers, and ran to the door.
Aracely had just woken up and did not have much strength. And she was also muddleheaded. She had just taken two steps when her feet slipped.
She fell heavily to the ground and almost cracked her front teeth.
Though her teeth were fine, her nose bled.
To make things worse, the room door was suddenly pushed open.
Aracely covered her nose and slowly looked up.
She first saw a pair of defined ankles. Then her eyes went up and saw Winston’s handsome face.
Blood flowed out through her fingers.
Anaya only heard a screech before the call ended.
She called back only to be told the number she dialed was powered off.
Did Aracely break her phone or something?
Aracely didn’t notice that her phone broke down. After meeting Winston’s gaze, Aracely silently buried her head in her
He didn’t see her. He didn’t see her…
“Aracely.” Winston crouched down and helped Aracely back to the bed. He frowned. “Why did you fall?”
Aracely shook her head. She did not speak or look at Winston.
She wanted to flee the Earth.
Winston could tell Aracely wanted to keep him at a distance, so he released her arm and pulled away from her. Then Winston took out two tissues and handed them to Aracely.
Winston said, “Come downstairs for breakfast. They are waiting for you.”
Aracely accepted the tissues and plugged her nose. After a long silence, she said, “I’m sorry about last time…”
She also did not expect that she would be so crazy and fuck Winston.
After all, Winston liked someone else!
Winston had been celibate for so many years. He never had a woman, but Aracely suddenly took his virginity….
Aracely remembered some fragments of that night.
The body that exuded masculinity and maturity was full of the primal wildness of men.
The bulging abs and the low and sexy roars in her ear…
Aracely nearly had another nosebleed.
Winston had a gentle appearance, but his body was so muscular and sexy.
Aracely bit the tip of her tongue, trying to clear her head.
She was horrible!
How could she have such nasty thoughts after she raped him?
Winston looked down at her, with tenderness and even a touch of amusement in his eyes. “That is not your fault.”
Aracely kept her head lowered and did not see his expression. “You don’t have to pretend that you don’t mind it. 1 know that there has always been someone in your heart. But I made you… You must be disgusted, aren’t you?”
Aracely put herself in his shoes. If she was raped by a man she did not like, she would probably want to die.
Winston sat down beside her. “I’m not disgusted. The woman I like is…”
“Winston,” Aracely interrupted him. “Let’s pretend that nothing happened that night, okay?”
In the past few days in Anaya’s place, Aracely had been thinking about how to get along with Winston.
In the end, she chose to bury her head in the sand.
She hoped that night wouldn’t change anything for them.
Winston could continue to like the woman in his heart while Aracely would move on and find herself another man.
Winston’s eyes darkened. “Is this what you want?”
Aracely clutched at her pajamas and said, “Yes.”
Winston stared at her for a while and stood up, “Then okay.”
Aracely looked up and asked cautiously, “So, are you still my brother?”
Winston did not answer. “Hurry up and come downstairs for breakfast. I will go first.”
With that, Winston strode out of the room and used more force than usual to shut the door.
Although Winston didn’t show it, Aracely could clearly feel that he was angry.
Why was he angry?
Because she raped him and hurt his male pride?
Or did he feel like a slut?
Aracely thought about it for a long time but couldn’t figure it out. She got up to wash up and went downstairs.
Aracely decided to forget about the thing with Winston for now. She pulled herself together and asked Anaya out to shop together the same afternoon.
Aracely had not come out for too long, and she was stoked in the afternoon. As if to make it up to hersell, Aracely spent tens of thousands of dollars in no time.
After buying clothes, Aracely took Anaya to the jewelry store.
“Anaya, haven’t you just gotten a big contract? i haven’t given you a congratulation gift yet. I’ll buy you anything you want today!”
Anaya said with a smile, “If I want a piece of jewelry that’s worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, will you buy it for
Aracely waved her hand and said generously, “Sure! I’ll only lose a few months of allowance, but you’ll get a gift. It’s worth it!”
The shop assistants at the jewelry shop recognized Anaya. When they saw her and Aracely come in, they came over with a smile.
The Dutt family had declined, but it used to be one of the wealthiest families alongside the Maltz family.
Anaya was Adarns” only granddaughter and was pampered by him. Before Anaya married into the Maltz family, what she ate and used was always of the best quality.
Anaya had already spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in this jewelry store. She was a VIP customer here, and all the staff members knew her.
“Ms. Dutt, are you interested in anything?”
“We’re just browsing,”
The shop assistants stepped aside and did not disturb the two further.
During the one year in the Maltz family, Anaya rarely attended social gatherings. After the divorce, Anaya was busy with work and did not care about these unnecessary things.
Anaya hadn’t bought herself any jewelry for more than a year now.
Anaya looked around and decided on a low-key silver diamond necklace.
Although Aracely told her she could choose anything she liked, Anaya wanted to save Aracely some money.
This necklace did not have a price tag, but Anaya guessed that the price couldn’t be expensive. Anaya was about to call the assistants over to ask for the price.
Before she could ask, a female voice came from behind. “Lexie, what do you think of that necklace? I saw it in a magazine not long ago. It is said that it is the latest work of a famous foreign designer. It is worth a lot. And I think it suits you perfectly!”
