Chapter 31 A Sleepless Night
That night, Anaya didn‘t sleep well.
In the bizarre scenery, everything that had happened in her previous life seemed to have appeared in her dreams. And the scene finally stopped at Joshua’s disgusted expression.
Joshua raised his hand and gave Anaya a gentle push.
She fell into the cold water in the winter and felt a bone–piercing pain.
The barbed iron net trapped her and slowly tightened. Her chest seemed to be pressed with a boulder. And it was so heavy that she couldn‘t breathe.
She felt sharp pain all over her limbs and bones. She wanted to struggle, but her limbs were tied.
She wanted to call for help, but her throat seemed to be choked by something, She couldn‘t make a sound.
Despair and powerlessness almost made her collapse.
Just as Anaya was about to completely lose her breath, the familiar herbal fragrance wrapped around her.
She fell into a warm embrace, and she felt like a person who had suffered weightlessness returning to the ground. Her heart suddenly stopped pounding.
In the latter half of the night, Anaya slept soundly.
The faint fragrance of medicinal herbs lingered around her while making her feel comfortable and relaxed.
Early the next morning, when Anaya woke up, Hearst had already bought breakfast.
Hearst took Anaya in and even woke up early to bring breakfast for her. Anaya was somewhat embarrassed.
“You can have breakfast now. No need to wait for me.”
Hearst read the newspaper in his hand with a gentle expression. “We‘ll have breakfast together.”
Anaya didn‘t want Hearst to wait for so long, so she quickly washed up and walked to the table.
There were pieces of bread and two bowls of warm porridge on the table.
“Did you add sugar to the porridge?”
Anaya wanted to know if Hearst had put sugar into the porridge.
She loved sweet food.
“Yes, a lot.”
Hearst‘s taste was quite similar to hers.
Anaya took a seat and glanced at Hearst.
The latter held a silver spoon carved with flowers and ate slowly.
Although it was just a bowl of ordinary porridge, it felt like Hearst was enjoying his meal at a high–class restaurant.
Alter breakfast, Hearst sent Anaya home.
It rained all night last night, so the sky was clear. And the sunlight was more dazzling than the previous days.
Anaya waited for the elevator and turned on her cell phone by the way.
Last night, Joshua called her on someone else‘s phone. And she felt annoyed, so she turned off her cell phone directly.
The text messages sent by dozens of strange numbers on her cell phone were all asking for her location. But the one who sent them seemed to become more irritable. And the one even began to use Riven Group to threaten Anaya.
It was Joshua‘s usual style.
Anaya could imagine Joshua‘s angry appearance through those words.
It seemed that the glass of wine she had drunk last night had thoroughly infuriated Joshua.
But she didn‘t regret it.
The Dutt family‘s road was almost blocked by Joshua. No matter how angry he was, he couldn‘t let the Dutt family suffer even more
Anaya deleted the texts one by one and found that there was a text from Aracely, who also wanted to know Anaya‘s location.
After deleting all the texts, Anaya called Aracely.
“Anaya, you finally called me. I thought you were kidnapped by Joshua.”
“Last night, Joshua called me and asked me if I knew where you were. He seemed quite angry. Where did you go last
Anaya briefly recounted what had happened last night.
Aracely scolded, “Can‘t Joshua sense the situation when he speaks or does things? He said in front of so many people that … you lost your virginity… Fortunately, you have divorced him. This bastard only deserves a bitch like Lexie.”
Aracely seemed to scold enough, so she changed the topic. “But he cares so much about whether you‘re with another man or not. Does he begin to love you again?”
“Again? Come on. He has never loved me.” When the elevator came down, Anaya walked in and pressed the floor button. “He doesn‘t love me, and he just feels unbalanced. It is probably because I chased him for so many years and suddenly stopped pursuing him.”
Aracely deliberated for a moment and carefully asked, “Well… Do you still love him now?”
Joshua should feel lucky if Anaya didn‘t hate him.
Anaya only wanted to leave Joshua and live the life she wanted.
For the rest of her life, she didn‘t need Joshua,
The elevator door opened, and Anaya walked out. “I have long given up on Joshua. He is not worthy of…”
Before she could finish speaking, a hand reached out from the side and grabbed her wrist while pulling her over.
The man had great strength, and Anaya‘s back slamined into the wall next to the elevator. It was so violent.
A low roar came from above. “Did you sleep with that bastard last night?”
Anaya took a few seconds to come back to her senses. She looked up and saw Joshua‘s bloodshot eyes.
She could feel Joshua’s rage and madness that seemed to devour her.
In Anaya‘s previous life, Joshua often got angry at her. She was very familiar with this appearance.
Anaya‘s hand was pinned to the wall by foshua, so she couldn‘t move,
She struggled and said, “Joshua, are you crazy? Let me go.”
The latter didn‘t care about her resistance at all. Joshua‘s eyes were wide open as he repeated, “Did you sleep with him last night?”
Joshua had been looking for Anaya all night. And when he thought of how Anaya had been lying in another man‘s arms all night, he got furious,
He thought that Anaya had betrayed him.
But Anaya felt the man in front of her was simply unreasonable.
She had already let Joshua and Lexie be together. Why was Joshua still pestering her like this?
“Joshua, don‘t forget that we have divorced.” Anaya raised her head slightly and looked at Joshua with an indifferent expression. “Even if I have sex with Hearst, it has nothing to do with you.”
“You are really..” There was much more than a hint of anger in Joshua‘s eyes. His voice was very low, but every word he said was with extreme anger. “What a bitch you are. We have just divorced, but you fell in love with another man. First, it was Timothy. And now it is Hearst. Do you want men so much?”
“Yes, I want men so very much. Didn‘t you say last night that I was a divorced woman that no one wanted? I have to prove my charın to you.”
“Anaya. You have just divorced me, but you are so close to other men. Are you deliberately trying to cause a scandal and embarrass our families?”
Anaya snorted, “Scandal? Come on. I just found a love partner. Is it a beautiful story for you to have an extramarital affair? You can‘t even control yourself. What‘s the point of telling me this?”
“Lexie and I did nothing at the hotel that night.”
“Who knows? other than that night, you have many opportunities. Even if there is no substantive relationship between you, it is an indisputable fact that you have a spiritual extramarital affair. And you were cold and violent with
Anaya stated the facts calmly. “I didn‘t interfere with the matter between you and Lexie. Please don‘t talk to me in the tone of a husband who caught his wife cheating. Now, you have no position and qualifications to restrain my freedom.”
Her words had successfully calmed Joshua down.
Indeed, Joshua had lost the qualifications to be angry about Anaya‘s relationship with a second man.
The moment they divorced, Anaya had nothing to do with Joshua.
Joshua shouldn‘t have paid any more attention to anything about Anaya. But why would he be so impulsive to come to Anaya after knowing that Anaya was with another man for the whole night?
Joshua‘s thoughts were a mess, and he gradually loosened his hands.
Anaya took the opportunity to push Joshua away and kept a distance from the crazy man. “Joshua, since you have decided to be with Lexie, don‘t get involved with me anymore. I don‘t want to be called a bitch or mistress by others.”
