Chapter 162 I‘m Different From You
The project in East Boston liad been settled. Today. Anaya and Hearst brought tlie proposals to the government
department for review.
Anaya could have gone alone, but Hearst was worried, so he followed her.
They were busy uintil five in the afternoon. After dinner, Hearst said that he wanted to come and see Sammo, so Anaya
took him home.
After parking the car, the two crossed the road and walked toward the apartment.
A sports car sped away. Hearst pulled Anaya‘s hand out of intuition and quickened his pace.
After avoiding the sports car, Hearst did not let go.
Anaya lowered her head to look at the hand that was holding her.
Hearst‘s hand was as good–looking as his face.
His nails were neatly trimmed, and they looked healthy. What was more, his fingers were slender and well–proportioned.
Anaya felt warmth coming from Hearst‘s palm. She looked up at the road and did not break free.
Hearst, on the other hand, had a smile on his face when he noticed Anaya‘s obedience.
Anaya seemed to not notice the amorous atmosphere between them at that moment. She said calmly, “You don‘t know how noisy my dog is. Wlien I took it in for the first time, it scratched my sofa. Fortunately, it behaved itself afterward.
“I gave it a bear doll not long ago. I thought the doll would break soon, but it’s still intact now.”
Hearst thought for a moment. “What lind of bear?!
Anaya was about to answer when she caught a glimpse of Joshua, who was waiting at the door of the apartment, and all the smiles on her face instantly disappeared.
Joshua noticed them from the moment the two got out of the car and kept silent with a gloomy face.
After waiting for a long time, Anaya finally noticed him. It made him even more irritated.
In the past, whenever he was around, Anaya would always be the first to discover him, and lier attention would always be on him.
Now, she was holding the hand of another man, smiling. Her eyes were full of affection.
Anaya just glanced at Joshua expressionlessly before looking away, even if she had noticed him as if he was just a stranger to her.
Joshua‘s heart was filled with race, and he stared at the two while they approached him.
Anaya and Hearst had no intention of talking to Joshua. They passed by without even looking at him.
Joshua was angry and wanted to grab Anaya‘s hand
Hearsi senised Joshua‘s movements and immediately pulled Anaya beliind him. lleihen grabbed Joshua‘s wrist.
Hearst looked indiferent. Even thourl he showed no sins of oppression, he looked imposing and intimidating
“Mr Maltz.d mani can‘t have plays calcantaci with a strange woman. Watch your behavior.”
Hearst did not show it on his face like a gentleman, but he increased his strength as if he wanted to crush Joshua‘s
“Aren‘t you holding her hand?” Joshua shook Hearst‘s hand off with a gloomy face.
“I‘m different from you,” Hearst said with a hall–smile.
Joshua knew what Hearst meant when he said “different“.
Hegritted his teeth and felt unconvinced. He cooked up a story as an argument. “What‘s the difference? I am her ex–husband, and I have done everything you have done to her! I have even done something more intimate!”
Hearst‘s eyes turned cold after he heard this.
From the moment he decided to return, he made mental preparations.
Hearst knew Anaya might not be a virgin.
Even though Hearst lioped Anaya to be a virgin, he was willing to accept her past.
Hearst had no obsession with Anaya being a virgin, but when he heard Joshua mention this matter, he still felt upset.
In Anaya‘s life, he had only been with her for one year.
Joshua, on the other hand, was with her during her youth.
This was something that he couldn‘t do.
It was also the matter that he couldn‘t let go of.
Because whenever Hearst thought about it, he would realize that in Anaya‘s heart, there was always another person.
And Hearst was not sure if Anaya had let go.
Even though Hearst was confident and arrogant, he was always uneasy in front of Anaya.
Anaya noticed the change in Hearst‘s mood. She let go of him, walked out from beliind him, and looked straight at Joshua.
“Mr. Maltz, you can‘t say that. Besides holding hands on the wedding day, we never even held hands afterward. How could there be anything more intimate?”
In the past, Joshua only loved Lexie and did not want Anaya to touch him.
In the beginning, Anaya tried all kinds of ways to seduce him and wanted him to consummate lier.
But every time, he would look at her with disgust, and she would be thrown out of the bedroom along with her
She was sad for a long time because of this. Now that she thought about it, she thanked Joshua for not having sex with her.
Otherwise, even if Hearst was willing to accept her past, she might not be able to get over it.
Alter experiencing the feelings of being cheated on in her last life, Anaya felt hurt and hoped that only one guy could go close to her in this life
And that guy must not touch another woman.
She knew that such a request might be difficult to achieve in the upper class, butihat was what she thought.
After listening to Anaya‘s words, the distress in learst‘s heart was gone
Joshua sneered. “Anaya, what have done to you? Why don‘t you admit it? Are you afraid that Hearst will abandon vou because of this? if that is the case, then it seems that your relationship is not strong enough to be indestructible.”
“Mr. Maltz.” Hearst said, “what are you trying to do by distorting facts and sowing discord? Are you jealous that your ex–wife lives a better life than you, so you want to damage lier reputation? Or…”
Hearst‘s eyes turned cokl. “Do you liave feelings you shouldn‘t have for her?”
Hearst stated Joshua‘s thoughts with just a few words. Joshua said stubbornly,“I‘m just stating a fact. Believe it or not. It‘s up to you.”
Hearst smiled with mockery. He did not reply and turned to look at Anaya, “Anaya, let‘s go up.”
Anaya nodded and prepared to go upstairs with Hearst.
Joshua flashed and blocked tlieir way.
“Mr. Maltz, is there anything else?” Anaya was expressionless.
When Joshua saw that they were about to leave, he remembered something important and said, “I came here to ask you to clarify everything for the Dunbar family.”
“Clarify?” Anaya pursed her lips. “They did what was reported on the news. I‘m afraid ‘clarify‘ is a bad choice of word.”
“I don‘t want to discuss details with you,” Joshua wasn‘t as eloquent as Anaya, so he didn‘t argue with her and said firmly.
“Although the Dunbar family was in the wrong this time, you were also to blame. If Aracely had not provoked Marisa and Mr. Mendoza that day, things would not have happened.
“Ask Winston to withdraw the post online and have Aracely inake a statement saying that Marisa and Mr. Mendoza have nothing to do with each other. Then, explain the problem of the renovation of the new house.
“I‘ll agree to any conditions if this is done.”
“Oh? Any conditions?”
Anaya showed signs of compromise, and Joshua softened a bit. “Yes, anything.”
Anaya smiled as she calmly said, “Will you agree if I ask you to pay me 800 million dollars as the price?”
