Chapter 154 Disdain to Ask for Money
“Huh?” Hearing Joshua‘s words, Anaya was still a little confused. “Ring?”
“Are you playing dunb with me?” Joshua stepped forward and pulled off the diamond ring that she had hung in her bag with a silver chain. “Don‘t tell me you don‘t know what this is.”
Joshua seemed to have caught the evidence that Anaya still liked him and couldn‘t help but laugh.
His smile carried a bit of pride. As il mocking Anaya for being stubborn, he said, “Anaya, you keep saying that you want to stay away from me. Why are you carrying this with you? You still have feelings for me, right?”
His gaze locked onto Anaya tightly, trying to find a trace of panic from being caught on her face.
However, Anaya still had an indifferent attitude. “I hung this ring on my bag when I left the Maltz family. I planned to sell it after I went back, but I forgot about it later and didn‘t take it off.”
11 Joshua hadn‘t noticed it, she would probably never have remembered that their wedding ring was still hanging on her bag
Joshua sneered, “Do you think I would believe such a lame excuse? You bring the ring with you, showing that you still can‘t let go of our past!
“You still want to remarry me!
Joshua‘s voice was sonorous and forceful, and he spoke with confidence and conviction that Anaya had him in her heart.
Hearst stared at the ring in Joshua‘s hard, his expression dark and unfathomable.
Anaya noticed Hearst‘s strangeness and said to Joshua, “If I thought it was precious, would I hang it on my bag? I hung it there, which only means that even if I lost it, I wouldn‘t feel it was a pity.”
“Anaya, you don‘t have to quibble. Do you think I will believe your words?” Joshua‘s pride faded a little.
Anaya said indifferently, “Believe it or not, it has nothing to do with me. I know my feelings better than anyone…”
As she spoke, she glanced at learst. “As long as the man I care about knows my feelings, that is enough.”
Hearst understood Anaya‘s personality. Hearing her words, he knew that she really did not care about the ring.
Everything was just Joshua‘s wishful thinking and arrogance.
Hearst suddenly curved his lower lip and did not speak. There was an invisible tacit understanding between him and
Joshua was not a fool. Of course, he understood what Anaya meant by saying “the man I care about“. He gritted his teeth and said, “Are you deliberately angering me? If you really don‘t care about this ring. I will throw it away right
Araya said unhurriedly, “Don‘t.”
Joshua fovealed a proud smile, and then he heard Anaya continue, “I spent at least 160 thousand dollars to get this ring, Isn‘t it a pity to throw it away? 11 I take it to auction, I might even be able to get back the cost.”
Aracely could not help bui Laugh
Anaya was quite good at making people angry.
Joshua‘s face darkened. He glared at Aracely and wanted to say something, but Anaya had already raised her hand and snatched the ring from Joshua‘s hand.
“Mr. Maliz, please give me that ring of yours. After all, it‘s something worth over 160 thousand dollars. I can‘t let you hiave it for free.”
“It‘s just a ring, but you want to get it back!”
“That‘s 160 thousand dollars! Why shouldn‘t I get it back? Although I am rich now, I didn‘t make casy money. Nobody would feel they have enough money.”
The veins on Joshua‘s forehead throbbed as he tried his best to suppress his anger. “I lost that ring. If you want it, I‘ll transfer 160 thousand dollars to your bank account.”
During the year they got married, Anaya sent him many gifts.
She was always keen to send some small things to express her love.
However, he did not keep a single one well.
He had always only cared about the gifts that Lexie sent him.
Everything related to Anaya had been thrown into a dusty and dark storeroom.
As for that wedding ring, he used to wear it for the sake of the two families.
However, after he divorced Anaya, it disappeared just like the other things that Anaya had sent him.
“Forget it! It‘s fine if it‘s lost. I disdain asking for money from the Maltz fainily.” Anaya waved her hand.
“Let‘s go,” she said, looking at Hearst.
Hearst nodded and left.
Joshua was unwilling and wanted to grab Anaya‘s hand.
Hearst grabbed his wrist and said coldly, “Mr. Maltz, please behave yourself.”
He shook off Joshua‘s hand, but Joshua was cauglit off guard and staggered a few steps, almost falling.
Hearst threw a warning look at him and left with Anaya.
Joshua stared at the back of the two as if he was possessed. The vines called jealousy crew wildly in his heart and pulled his chest to tear.
Aracely called for security personnel and drove the three of them out.
Outside, Joshua still had a gloomy face.
Lexie gave Bria a wink, but Bria bit the bullet and said, “Joshua, are we going to another wedding dress shop? The wedding between you and Lexie is coming soon. We can‘t delay it any longer…”
As Bria spoke, she muttered in a low volce, “You are entangled with Anaya in front of Lexie, and you don‘t care about borr thoughts…”
Her words reminded Joshua
He brought Lexie to try on wedding dresses today, so how could he feel upset because of Anaya?
Joshua tried to calm down and held Lexie‘s hand. “Lexic. I‘m sorry, I lost control just now. I‘ll ask Alex to find a bigger
wedding dress store for you to choose from.”
fevie nodded sensibly on the surface and did not pursue what had just happened. In fact, she was more than furious
As long as Anaya was there, Joshua would be distracted.
Lexie wished she could hack Anaya to pieces!
However, no matter how angry she was, she could not do anything to Anaya for the time being, so she could only take more time to consider it.
Anaya had worn a wedding dress once.
That time, she was full of joy, but in the end, she sat alone in the villa for a night.
She had thought that she would only wear a wedding dress for Joshua in her life.
Unexpectedly, she had come here with another man.
She had come today with the intention of having fun, but now she was inexplicably nervous. She even asked the makeup artist to slap some makeup on hier to bring out the best in her.
The design of wedding dresses was complicated, and their tails were very long. Anaya walked into the fitting room wearing makeup. A few employees went in to help her put on the dresses with great difficulty.
While she was changing the wedding dresses, Hearst had already changed into a white suit and was waiting on the sofa outside.
He sat there quietly, his slender fingers flipping through the magazine in his hand. His every movement was reserved and noble.
The nearby customers and shop assistants passed by and could not help but quietly look at him, wanting to go forward and ask for his phone number, but no one dared to go over.
Although Hearst was not cold, his indifferent and aloof temperament made him unapproacliable.
His gaze remained on the magazine until the curtain in the fitting room was pulled back before he lifted his eyes to
