Chapter 147 A Pet and Her Owner
“Brenton, do you think it’s your place to lecture me?” Kieran asked with a rare harsh tone. “Do you really know her and care about her? Who do you think you are to compete with me?”
Brenton and Kieran were aggressive toward each other like a pair of trapped beasts. Despite their slightly pulling apart from each other, the tension between them kept building up.
“Kieran, if you were able to deal with Terrence, you would not have said such nonsense in front of
Brenton thought he had seen things through, hence his disdain for Kieran, a character that was too
humble to take seriously.
Terrence, however, was not like Kieran.
Terrence said that he did not love Alexa, and yet he kept Alexa around him for three years.
How despicable of Terrence!
Then Brenton brushed aside Kieran and returned to his car gloomily.
Soon, his luxury car, a Bentley, roared loudly and left in an instant.
This night was not a peaceful night in New York.
The street where Alexa lived didn’t belong to a high-end residential area. Due to that, it was usually quite chaotic at night.
Alexa thought, it must be some lush who is causing chaos now.
By thinking that way, Alexa tried to make herself get used to living where she was.
However, after a brief pause, a noise sounded again. But this time, it wasn’t from downstairs, from her door. Someone had kicked open her door bluntly.
Hearing the loud bang, Alexa was so scared that she was almost reduced to tears, with her heart
And before she could turn on the light, a tall figure brushed past the house in the dark to her and grabbed her neck accurately.
Sensing the familiar coldness, Alexa became pale all at once, looking even more frightened.
“You… Let go…
The figure sneered coldly while tightening his grip.
“I thought you had seen this coming before you ran away!”
Alexa slapped his wrist in panic, thinking, he’s so furious now. That means he might really strangle
me to death.
“Well, why don’t you tell me who you want to elope with?” Terrence enunciated each word with intense hatred, “Is it Kieran, Brenton, or someone else that I don’t know?”
Hearing her voice, which suggested she was in pain, Terrence curved his lips gently and revealed a
cruel and cold smile.
“Finally, you’re afraid. But what’s the use of being afraid?”
Since the light was off, Alexa failed to see how terrible Terrence looked at the moment.
Then after a pause, Terrence pressed Alexa onto the bed decisively before slumping on top of
Alexa’s slender body.
Noticing that Terrence had loosened his grip, Alexa, with tears on her face, said in horror with a lump in her throat.
“Didn’t I already sign the paper? What else do you want from me?”
Hearing her retort, Terrence got even angrier.
“Signing the paper? Do you think you’ve got a say in our marriage?”
“Terrence, you bastard! I don’t want to see you. Get lost!”
Terrence pulled off his tie violently and tied Alexa’s hands to the bed as if he had lost his mind.
“Alexa, am I being too lenient with you? How dare you talk to me this way! Huh?”
Alexa was so angry that her pale little face flushed.
She scoured for words to curse Terrence as fiercely as she could, but seconds later, Terrence’s warm lips had been pressed against hers.
Just like that, Terrence started to come to Alexa like crazy until dawn.
After a long night, Alexa collapsed weakly on the bed. Out of the corner of her eye, she saw Terrence wearing clothes with his back to her.
Feeling that her entire body was about to fall apart, Alexa had no strength to speak at all.
Terrence, on the other hand, tidied himself up, got up, and looked down at Alexa, who was lying on
“When are you coming back?”
But Alexa didn’t reply. Instead, she pulled the thin quilt to wrap herself up before turning aside and continuing to lie quietly.
The sheets on which she was lying were blood-stained. Terrence glanced at them a bit before looking away stiffly, his eyes sluggish.
“Mr. Ramsey, you must be mistaken.” Alexa tried hard to retain her composure and said, aloof, “We’d already divorced yesterday. Why should I go back with you?”
“We are adults. What happened last night didn’t mean anything.”
Terrence thought, didn’t mean anything? That is so disgusting!
Then he got worked up again and sneered angrily.
“Are you saying that you could do such a thing with just any random guy?”
“Yes,” Alexa replied calmly without any retorts. “Mr. Ramsey, if you feel apologetic about it, you
Broken like a tattered doll, Alexa did not even care about herself, not to mention how Terrence was
The air in the room became even stiller and more terrifying now.
Terrence gritted his teeth and sneered, with his face gloomy beyond measure.
“Alexa, way to go!”
He made a check out with a whoosh and threw it to Alexa contemptuously.
“Being that awful in bed and equally unpleasant and unattractive, you really aren’t worth that
Terrence’s words, which were cold and snide, came at Alexa as if they were knives. Alexa flapped her eyelashes slightly, her eyes stinging but tearless as if she had run out of tears.
“Come back to Duckdale Villa today, or you will bear the consequences.”
Terrence threatened her maliciously and walked to the door in a quick step.
Alexa moved her lips. A bloody smell soon filled her mouth.
“Terrence, you really disgust me…’
Hearing Alexa’s voice, which was hoarse and dry, Terrence smiled coldly and turned around. nonchalantly.
“Oh, so what?”
He was certain that Alexa had no one else to rely on. Therefore, he was not afraid of her escaping at
It was impossible for her to escape from his grasp whatsoever.
In Terrence’s eyes, their relationship was just like one between a pet and her owner.
After Terrence left, Alexa lay on the bed for a long time. Then she got up from the bed slowly after having built up her strength a bit.
Every movement she made, she ached so much that tears welled up in her eyes as if her body was to explode.
Then she picked up the check. Noticing that it was a check for 16 thousand dollars, she sneered and crushed it before throwing it into the trash can.
Alexa thought, how generous of him!
Terrence must think he is very powerful due to all the money he owns.
Then Alexa, with her hand covering her heart, moved into the bathroom, washed herself up briefly, changed her clothes, and went out.
But she wasn’t going back to Duckdale Villa. Instead, she was heading toward somewhere nearby.
Now that she was still able to take care of herself, she had to find a job and make a living. That way,
she could at least survive.
The moment Alexa left the building where she lived, a professional bodyguard followed her right. away while giving a real-time report to Terrence.
Terrence had just returned to Duckdale Villa. Knowing that Alexa was looking for a job in her community now, he sneered indifferently.
He thought, it seems that Alexa doesn’t take me seriously. How naïve!
After talking to the bodyguard, Terrence entered the living room.
Brynlee and Emely did not expect him to come back now, hence a state of shock.
But Terrence brushed them aside. Then he noticed the linen bags on the ground.
“What is this?”
