Chapter 157 Can’t Afford to Mess With Your
Kieran immediately got the point.
Kieran coldly shook off Brenton’s hand and turned to leave with a solemn face.
Alexa felt very guilty. However, Terrence had already stood in front of her with a cold face, and his
vibe was too strong for her to breathe.
Brenton waved at Terrence with a bright smile and said sarcastically.
“Mr. Ramsey, what a small world! We meet again so soon.”
Terrence did not even glance at Brenton but stared at Alexa with a murderous look.
“Come over here.”
Alexa’s expression was stiff, and she pursed her lips tightly.
Alexa wished that she could immediately escape this place and never see these guys again for the
rest of her life.
But Brenton did not let go of her hand.
Not only that, he gripped Alexa’s hand even tighter and deliberately asked her in front of Terrence.
“Alexa, would you like to go with him?”
“Alexa, look, this is not about whether you’d like to do it or not. You’d better think clearly about the consequences.” Terrence’s tone became colder.
Alexa’s delicate makeup had been messed up. She pulled off the hairpin with one hand and let the messy hair strands fall.
The light elegant fragrance smelled fresher. On the late spring night, the owner of the fragrance
was just like a fairy.
Alexa’s face was a little blushed. It was unknown whether it was because of the cold wind or the
“Mr. Darrell, please let me go.” Alexa tried hard to restrain her emotions as if she would cry in the next second. “I’ve said that I have nothing to do with you.”
“Alexa, you don’t have to compromise yourself.”
Alexa wanted to swear at Brenton, “What the hell are you doing?!”
But she just said, “Let go.”
“Just say the word, and I’ll get you away from here at once.”
Terrence sneered in his mind, take her away?
This was the most ridiculous joke that Terrence had ever heard. Terrence doubted where Brenton got his confidence from.
“Didn’t you say that we were going to be together forever?”
Brenton asked in a very serious tone. Alexa was so shocked that her mind went blank.
Terrence was not patient to watch them “renew their old relationship”. He directly strode forward and pulled Alexa’s other wrist.
The atmosphere was already tense, and now it became even weird.
“You wanna go with him? Try it.”
Terrence had never been so angry before. However, Alexa was challenging his bottom line again. and again.
First, it was Kieran. Then, it was Brenton, and now…
As Alexa’s husband, Terrence had to personally witness Alexa’s two lovers fighting for her favor.
Terrence thought, she feels happy about that, doesn’t she?
Terrence’s eyes became dimmer, and he glanced at Brenton coldly.
“Mr. Darrell, you just take over the company. You should know clearly whether you want to talk business or fight for a lawsuit.”
Upon hearing this, Brenton’s fake smile froze on his face.
Brenton subconsciously reduced the strength of his hand. Alexa seized the opportunity to retract
But on her other side, Terrence did not let go of her. Instead, he even directly carried her up in his
arms and walked toward the hotel entrance without looking back.
“Don’t!” Alexa cried out in panic, “There are many people in the lobby. The media will take pictures.
Terrence faintly smiled.
He said casually, “So you know it well. Mrs. Ramsey, Thank you for being considerate to me so much.”
Alexa understood that Terrence was talking about what happened just now with sarcasm. She curled her lips and did not say a word.
“Say something” Terrence lowered his voice somewhat unhappily. “Why are you silent now?”
Alexa said strictly, “I have nothing to say, and I can’t afford to mess with you guys either.”
Terrence angrily fixed his eyes on her face. Alexa’s eyes were still red. Her hair was messy. One of her earrings was lost. Her lipstick smudged slightly as if she had been fiercely kissed.
When Terrence saw this, the rage all over him became gloomier and stronger, and his eyes were as
cold as ice.
Alexa’s clear eyes looked a little innocent, but Terrence sneered inexplicably.
Terrence thought, is she pretending to be good for me to see? Does she also have such an obedient
“Look at you,” Terrence mercilessly criticized in a deep voice, “So ugly.”
Alexa had never heard anyone say that she was “ugly” since she was a child!
Terrence said it so naturally that Alexa could not bear it.
“Then don’t look at me,” Alexa said boldly, “I didn’t beg you to look.”
“So, did Kieran praise you? And Brenton? Do they know that your husband designed this for you?” Terrence asked playfully.
“Don’t talk nonsense!”
“Oh, what did I say?”
Terrence asked with a fake smile. The next second, he pushed Alexa into the passenger seat with a
Alexa couldn’t wait to pull her long hair to cover her face, afraid that she would be recognized by
Does this silly girl really think that someone dares to take photos of us? Terrence thought.
Terrence felt angry and funny. He couldn’t bear it any longer and tapped Alexa on her head with his
“It’s useless to cover your face. Don’t cover it.”
Alexa didn’t listen to him at all. She silently buried her head even lower.
Terrence was so angry just now that he wanted to teach her a good lesson, but now the anger in his heart had gone more than half.
He thought, this heartless silly girl is a little cute.
After Terrence got in the car, Alexa suddenly asked carefully.
“Can you let me go to a convenience store to get something to eat first?”
“Haven’t you eaten yet?” Terrence frowned.
Alexa lightly shook her head with a simple expression.
“It’s late to go back now. The chef in the villa has been off work.”
Alexa did not use the word “home”, which sounded very ear-piercing for Terrence.
Terrence silently concealed his subtle emotions and said like a strict parent.
“What’s so good about the things in the convenience store?”
Alexa chuckled with shallow dimples appearing on her cheeks.
“I’m just a little craving.”
For some unknown reason, Terrence unconsciously clicked on the navigation, found the nearest convenience store, and then silently drove over.
Alexa was starving, so she did not have the mind to care about what Terrence was thinking.
When Terrence pulled over at the entrance of the convenience store, Alexa’s dim eyes suddenly lit up. She was about to get out of the car, but Terrence grabbed her arm.
“Are you going to go in wearing this?”
Alexa didn’t get the point. Terrence took off his coat and handed it to her.
“Put it on and go back quickly.”
Terrence said indifferently. Alexa was a little conflicted.
It looks even weirder with this coat on.
However, she did not dare to argue with Terrence, so she had to maintain this appearance and walk
toward the convenience store.
The clerk was going to pack up and close the shop. The hot food had already been sold out.
Alexa took a loaf of bread. When she saw the pregnancy test kit on the shelf next to her, she looked a
When she paid the bill, Alexa could feel the clerk’s subtle gaze on her.
Well, she looked very strange in such a dress-up.
Alexa hid the pregnancy test kit well. Then she walked back as if nothing had happened.
After Alexa got back into the passenger seat, Terrence fixed his cold eyes on her.
Alexa covered her handbag with a guilty conscience, pretended to be calm, and took a look at
