Chapter 51 Could She Be Your Wife?
The door was pulled open, and Anthony appeared outside the door with a wicked smile on his face. “You left so early just now. I wonder if you’re unhappy because I have not shown you enough hospitality.” He leaned against the door with his hands in his pockets, but his eyes looked past Gilbert into the room.
Gilbert did not expose him, just calmly turning his body sideways. “You came over here so late. You’re not here to apologize to me, are you?”
“Of course. After all, it is not like you would come here every day. So, as the host, I have got to receive you with warm hospitality.” While speaking , Anthony walked in uninvited. The word ‘host’ also clearly declared that this was his territory. Gilbert sneered. When he saw Anthony’s eyes drifting
around, he smiled and asked, “Are you looking for someone?”
Anthony’s eyes turned to the couch, and he sat down. He then lit a cigarette, crossed his legs, and said casually,” No. I just want to see if you have hired any call girls. If not, I can send you a few. Sure, to make you look back on this trip.”
Gilbert sat on the side couch, sipping his tea, and chuckled. “Thank you for your kindness. It is just that
ordinary women won’t catch my eye.”
Anthony narrowed his eyes and smiled. “That is right. After all, a beauty like Sharon is rare. Why would you look at other women when you have her? But…”
He let his words hang and took a drag, then chuckled. “I remember that your ex-wife isn’t pretty by any standard. How come she has caught your eye and become your wife?
Gilbert said nothing but just casually sipped his tea.
Anthony glanced at him, and the corners of his lips curled up in mockery. “Oh, I remember it. That woman set you up, so you had no choice but to marry her. Tsk, tsk.” He suddenly shook his head with an extremely despicable look on his face. “The CEO of GK Pictures was set up by an ordinary-looking woman; I wonder if you let her set you up by design or her tactics were so good, so much so that such a character like you wasn’t even her match.”
Listening to his cynicism, Gilbert just chuckled with an unconcerned look.
Just then, Anthony stood up and walked over to the bedroom as if he had no intention of doing so and smiled playfully. “I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the ugly woman in the private lounge tonight looks very similar to your wife. Do you think she could be your wife?”
Gilbert still looked indifferent, as if he would not be provoked, no matter what Anthony said.
Anthony’s expression turned frosty all of a sudden, and he grinned. “You are really heartless. The person who died a few years ago may still be alive, yet you aren’t excited at all.”
Gilbert took a sip of tea and looked at him with a smile. “I loathe that woman. If she were still alive, do you think I should be excited or disappointed, eh?”
Anthony was startled for a second. Not giving up, he sneered again. “Really? In that case, then I am relieved. That ugly woman really pissed me off tonight. You know I’m ruthless. Since she has pissed me off, I will not let her leave the city alive.”
Gilbert gently looked up. “Whatever.”
Seeing his really unconcerned look, Anthony laughed eerily and then turned around and went to push the bedroom door open.
