Chapter 144 How Can He Not Hate Her?
Alexa uttered with difficulty, and her face was pale as she shook her head.
Brenton seemed to not understand what she meant. He took a step forward with an even stronger
sense of oppression.
“Are you and him happy?”
This question was like a whip that fiercely whipped Alexa. She suddenly looked up with tears in her
Brenton’s hands that hung by his sides moved slightly, and his deep brown eyes quickly flashed with unknown ruthlessness.
The more Alexa hesitated, the more Brenton was furious.
Brenton thought, how could I not hate her?
I was ready to propose, but the Duran family went bankrupt overnight.
When I met Alexa again, she had become Terrence’s wife.
However, Terrence didn’t give her a grand wedding, flowers, and everything that she ever wanted
So I asked her if she was happy in the past three years.
Alexa stood in front of him with a pale face, lowering her eyebrows.
But Brenton knew that she was not like this at all.
Alexa was even more heartless than he had imagined…
The distance between them was too close, but their expressions were not good.
Maeve noticed that something was wrong. She was about to step forward to break the embarrassment when a tall figure walked over before her.
A deep and powerful voice sounded. Alexa’s stiff face loosened a little and she looked back as if she had grasped onto a life-saving straw.
Brenton saw Kieran standing by Alexa’s side naturally, and the smile on his face became more and
Alexa looked gratefully at Kieran and relaxed.
“If you have something to say to Alexa, you can talk about it later.”
As if he had not heard Kieran’s words, Brenton suddenly turned his eyes to Alexa’s forehead.
“Alexa, how did you get an injury? Who bullied you?”
Brenton’s affectionate tone made Alexa very uncomfortable.
Alexa thought, we have already broken up for so many years. Why did Brenton still speak to me in
this tone openly?
“It’s fine. Mr. Darrell, you don’t have to worry.”
Kieran interrupted Brenton’s words and stood in front of Alexa to protect her.
“How can I not worry? Alexa is my fiancée,” Brenton said possessively.
Kieran’s gentle face instantly became gloomy when he heard these words.
Without waiting for Alexa to speak, the people behind her came over promptly.
Alan didn’t notice the awkwardness in the crowd.
He joked, “Didn’t you come with me? Where did you go just now?”
Brenton curved his lips slightly, and his smiling eyes never left Alexa.
“Alright, let’s not talk about this anymore.”
Brenton’s words made Alexa even more embarrassed.
At this moment, Alan also noticed something strange.
“So you know each other?”
Brenton looked at Alexa with a gentle gaze. He looked at her with interest and her expression.
became more and more awkward.
In the end, Brenton suddenly said.
“We’ve known each other for many years. You haven’t changed at all.”
Maeve said weakly. Now, she suddenly felt regretful.
Without waiting for her to say anything, Kieran suddenly reached out and grabbed Alexa on the
“It’s time to change the medicine. I’m sorry, everyone. We have to leave now.”
Alexa’s feet seemed to have been enchanted as she involuntarily followed Kieran.
In this case, the only one she could trust was him.
Brenton watched Alexa walk further and further away with Kieran, the gloom in his eyes didn’t
When they reached a place where no one was around, Kieran immediately released his hand and
distanced himself from Alexa.
“Sorry, I had no choice but to do this just now.”
“Dr. Powell, thank you.”
Alexa tidied her clothes and sighed in relief.
“You and Brenton…”
“Oh, he is my ex-boyfriend.”
Alexa tried her best to calm down, and her tone seemed a little deliberate.
Even though she had rehearsed it many times in her heart, when she said the words “ex-boyfriend”, her heart still felt a dull pain.
Alexa thought, I loved Brenton vigorously in the past. How could it be so easy to forget him?
Kieran did not ask more and changed the topic at the right time.
Alexa and Kieran walked to the hotel. Kieran went to the front desk to get the room card and took
Alexa stood behind him and clearly saw that the eyes of the front desk lady were a little subtle.
Alexa thought, perhaps a bleak person like me is incompatible with Kieran.
The room that Maeve had left for her was a sea view room with excellent lighting, but Alexa didn’t
have the mood to enjoy the scenery.
She was so sleepy that she could not open her eyes. She sat down on the sofa and wanted to sleep.
The person next to her was Kieran, and Alexa did not have any vigilance.
“Dr. Powell, I am going to sleep first. You should go back to rest early.”
“I have to change the medicine for you before leaving.”
Kieran said gently and made her a cup of honey water from the side.
“Actually, I am very surprised to meet Brenton here.”
Alexa held her face and murmured thoughtfully, looking like an obedient child.
“I have imagined countless scenes of reuniting with him, but I didn’t expect it to be like this.”
Alexa heard that Brenton made a career abroad, and his family raised their prestige.
But Alexa didn’t expect that Brenton would sing for her in front of everyone like his previous
Kieran’s eyes dimmed slightly and he interrupted Alexa’s train of thought at the right time.
“It’s all in the past. There’s no need to think too much about it.”
“Yes, Dr. Powell, you are right.”
“Actually, I have dealt with Brenton before. He has many similarities with Terrence.” Kieran suddenly changed the topic.
Speaking of Terrence, Alexa suddenly thought of something.
She found her phone in her handbag, and there were 20 missed calls from Terrence.
Alexa thought, damn it!
Terrence must be very angry now.
“My assistant sent the medicine over. I’ll go to the door to get it.”
After Kieran left, Alexa immediately sent a message to Terrence.
She texted: “Sorry, my phone was on silent just now.
“What’s the matter?”
After the message was successfully sent out, Alexa breathed a sigh of relief.
However, Terrence did not reply to her.
Kieran had helped her change the medicine, but there was still no message from Terrence.
Alexa fell on the bed alone, tangled for a long time, and finally called him.
The phone was quickly picked up, but it was a proud and charming female voice.
“Terrence is taking a shower. If there is anything, you can tell me.”
It was Brynlee!
Alexa did not say a word and directly hung up the phone.
Hearing the busy signal, Brynlee sneered, but Terrence reached out from behind her and immediately snatched the phone away.
