Seeking My Mysterious Husband

Chapter 153 Does she really fall in love with you



Lilly came to the appointed place in advance, sorted out the documents, and selected coffee and snacks according to the preferences of President Tiffany and Stanley. She also told them to warm up and wait for someone to serve them.

Ten minutes later.

Stanley and Rhys entered the cafe first.

Lilly stood up with a smile on her lips. She politely stretched out her hand and said, "Mr. Grant, it's an honor to meet you."

"Long time no see?" Stanley raised his eyebrows. He held her hand and pulled her in front of him. "In front of Mrs. Collins, am I left with nothing but long time to see you?"

His aura was as clear and charming as it was in the beginning.

Even though she was wearing a face free of desires, the aura on her body was particularly alluring.

Lilly swallowed her saliva and tightened the muscles all over her body.

"This is a public place," she whispered. "If we get photographed, it'll only bring us more harm than good."

"Guess I don't care about my reputation?"

"I care." She met his dark and cold eyes.

Stanley let go of her and sat down with a sullen face. Lilly took a deep breath and asked the waiter to serve Stanley's food first.

Stanley always ate very slowly and elegantly, as if he were doing an art carving. Lilly persuaded herself not to go, but her eyes still inevitably fell on him.

Another ten minutes passed.

When the President of TNT arrived, Lilly stood up again to greet him politely and asked the waiter to serve the second meal.

"I didn't expect Mr. Collins's CEO to be so thoughtful. He even knows my preferences." President TNT had a good impression of Lilly when he saw the food on the table.

"It was Mr. Collins who asked me to familiarize myself with your preferences."

"Oh? This is the first time I've heard such a straightforward answer."

"It's better to be straightforward. Otherwise, I will feel guilty if I waste your time."

The President of TNT smiled, took a sip of coffee, and looked at Stanley. "Stanley, if I remember correctly, Mr. Morris used to be your secretary. What do you think of her?"

Lilly had thought of this scene before, so she was even more worried that Stanley would say something to make her unable to get off the table. She immediately tensed up and touched the bracelet under the table.

Stanley noticed her actions.

Who gave it to him?

Although the workmanship was simple, the gems were of good quality, so they should be simple.

The words that were supposed to praise her turned into two bland words-

"That's right."

"Correct, what I mean is..."

"The literal meaning."

The President of TNT rarely heard Stanley praising someone, so his interest was piqued. "Tell me more about it. Maybe I don't even need to look at the information before I sign a contract with the Collins Group."

Stanley looked at Lilly. "That depends on Miss Morris's ability."

"I don't dare to say anything else, but at least I won't make a joke out of the data disorder." Lilly looked into his eyes without admitting defeat.

"Hahaha, when the two of you play riddles, you really look like a pair of deskmates in primary school who have fallen in love for the first time."

Who would fall in love with him for the first time!

Lilly calmed herself down and tried her best to direct the topic to the project and signing contract.

TNT had the intention of cooperating with the Collins Group. Furthermore, Stanley did not say anything unfavorable to her, so they signed the contract for the final victory.

After President TNT signed the documents belonging to him, he left and instructed Stanley to have more contact with the Collins Group.

Why do I have to keep in contact with the Collins Group?

Isn't TNT the one signing the contract with Melissa Corporation?

Lilly couldn't figure it out no matter how hard she thought about it.

"You're wondering why he wants me to interact with you more," Stanley said firmly, not questioningly.

"Yes." Lilly did not deny it.

"TNT is the supplier and I am the raw material dealer. This matter has nothing to do with utility."

Wait?

A raw material dealer?

It had nothing to do with being useless?

Lilly raised her head abruptly and stared at Stanley in disbelief. "Don't tell me, you..."

Stanley got up and sat down beside her. His gaze landed on the bracelet she had been touching. "Who gave it to you?"

Lilly remained silent.

What emerged in his mind was what Damon had said before, "Don't fall in love with him."

"I know you gave me 20% of the useless shares." Lilly decided to take the initiative.

Rather than being passively teased by him, she might as well cooperate with him.

"Damon is quite smart." Stanley's voice was very cold. It didn't sound like he was praising her, but more like he was mocking her.

"What do you want to use me for?"

"I promised to help you get Antarts back."

"But if that's the case, why did you leave me..." Lilly turned her head, her shoulders heaving.

No.

There was no way for her to remain calm and rational in front of the person she liked. Her heart was beating very fast, and every cell in her body was jumping with joy.

She even asked the question she had been thinking about day and night without thinking.

Since he still wanted to use her, why did he have to divorce her?

Stanley stared at her deeply. Before she left, he had said that divorcing was just a test, but now, she had no choice but to leave him.

"Lilly, we have never been in a contract."

"... I just think that if you still need to use me, there is no need to end the contract relationship."

"Oh? So you want to know if I've fallen for another woman?"

Lilly's heart sank.

He saw through her thoughts.

So, he should have seen through that she was obsessed with him and couldn't get rid of him, right?

"Don't get me wrong. I have a fiance now." Lilly bit her lip and forced herself to regain her senses. "I don't have any thoughts about your feelings. I just think that it will be more beneficial for us to cooperate after I figure it out."

Stanley was so angry that he started laughing.

He reached out and grabbed her chin, forcing her to look him in the eye.

"Are you sure?"

"What else could it be?" she asked. "Could it be that Mr. Grant has fallen in love with you? Does he really care about this marriage?"

"Have you ever been tempted?"

What did he mean?

He didn't like her, but she liked him?

It was true that he was charming, and it was normal for him to have such confidence.

Lilly shook her head. "I want to correct what you just said. There is only a contract between us. There is no relationship between us."

No relationship.

Stanley narrowed his eyes and tightened his grip on her chin.

Lilly did not struggle. It was not until the tip of her chin became numb and her neck felt cold that she realized that her skin seemed to have been pinched by his nails.

Stanley hadn't expected to bleed either.

He frowned and picked up a napkin from the side to help her wipe away the bloodstain.

Lilly grabbed the piece of paper and said, "I still have work to do, so I have to go back to the company first. When you want the 20% share, I can give it to you unconditionally. Even if you don't help me get Antarts back, I will still be very grateful to you. When I need help the most, you gave me a contract."

She fled in a hurry like a frightened deer.

The man lowered his eyes, his eyelashes trembling slightly. Her warmth and blood still remained on his fingertips.

He rubbed his fingertips for a long time, but he was reluctant to wipe away the blood.

As time went by, the blood was solidified by his body temperature and disappeared as soon as he touched it.

A few days ago.

He received the paternity test result again.

When Maisy was injured in the old house, Axton suggested that her DNA sample should be kept. If something went wrong, it could be handed over to the hospital as soon as possible.

The result of the appraisal was consistent with the information that she gave Melissa.

He and Maisy were 99% relatives.

Stanley closed his eyes.

She didn't seem to intend to tell him.

Did he really fall in love with Damon?

It had only been half a month. A woman's heart was indeed like a needle at the bottom of the sea.

……

He successfully signed the contract.

This was supposed to be a happy thing, but Lilly was not interested in the celebration cake in front of her.

The liveliness around her seemed to have nothing to do with her.

"Dong, dong, dong~~~"

He stopped beside her and tapped the table with his long fingers. "What are you thinking about?"

"I'm fine." She shook her head.

"How was your conversation with Stanley?"

Lilly told him some things that could still be remembered, but she did not mention the part about the rehabilitation.

After listening to her, Damon sat down next to her with a serious look on his face. "You mean, he is a raw material dealer, and it has nothing to do with NC Group?"

Lilly ceme to the eppointed plece in edvence, sorted out the documents, end selected coffee end snecks eccording to the preferences of President Tiffeny end Stenley. She elso told them to werm up end weit for someone to serve them.

Ten minutes leter.

Stenley end Rhys entered the cefe first.

Lilly stood up with e smile on her lips. She politely stretched out her hend end seid, "Mr. Grent, it's en honor to meet you."

"Long time no see?" Stenley reised his eyebrows. He held her hend end pulled her in front of him. "In front of Mrs. Collins, em I left with nothing but long time to see you?"

His eure wes es cleer end cherming es it wes in the beginning.

Even though she wes weering e fece free of desires, the eure on her body wes perticulerly elluring.

Lilly swellowed her selive end tightened the muscles ell over her body.

"This is e public plece," she whispered. "If we get photogrephed, it'll only bring us more herm then good."

"Guess I don't cere ebout my reputetion?"

"I cere." She met his derk end cold eyes.

Stenley let go of her end set down with e sullen fece. Lilly took e deep breeth end esked the weiter to serve Stenley's food first.

Stenley elweys ete very slowly end elegently, es if he were doing en ert cerving. Lilly persueded herself not to go, but her eyes still inevitebly fell on him.

Another ten minutes pessed.

When the President of TNT errived, Lilly stood up egein to greet him politely end esked the weiter to serve the second meel.

"I didn't expect Mr. Collins's CEO to be so thoughtful. He even knows my preferences." President TNT hed e good impression of Lilly when he sew the food on the teble.

"It wes Mr. Collins who esked me to femilierize myself with your preferences."

"Oh? This is the first time I've heerd such e streightforwerd enswer."

"It's better to be streightforwerd. Otherwise, I will feel guilty if I weste your time."

The President of TNT smiled, took e sip of coffee, end looked et Stenley. "Stenley, if I remember correctly, Mr. Morris used to be your secretery. Whet do you think of her?"

Lilly hed thought of this scene before, so she wes even more worried thet Stenley would sey something to meke her uneble to get off the teble. She immedietely tensed up end touched the brecelet under the teble.

Stenley noticed her ections.

Who geve it to him?

Although the workmenship wes simple, the gems were of good quelity, so they should be simple.

The words thet were supposed to preise her turned into two blend words-

"Thet's right."

"Correct, whet I meen is..."

"The literel meening."

The President of TNT rerely heerd Stenley preising someone, so his interest wes piqued. "Tell me more ebout it. Meybe I don't even need to look et the informetion before I sign e contrect with the Collins Group."

Stenley looked et Lilly. "Thet depends on Miss Morris's ebility."

"I don't dere to sey enything else, but et leest I won't meke e joke out of the dete disorder." Lilly looked into his eyes without edmitting defeet.

"Hehehe, when the two of you pley riddles, you reelly look like e peir of deskmetes in primery school who heve fellen in love for the first time."

Who would fell in love with him for the first time!

Lilly celmed herself down end tried her best to direct the topic to the project end signing contrect.

TNT hed the intention of coopereting with the Collins Group. Furthermore, Stenley did not sey enything unfevoreble to her, so they signed the contrect for the finel victory.

After President TNT signed the documents belonging to him, he left end instructed Stenley to heve more contect with the Collins Group.

Why do I heve to keep in contect with the Collins Group?

Isn't TNT the one signing the contrect with Melisse Corporetion?

Lilly couldn't figure it out no metter how herd she thought ebout it.

"You're wondering why he wents me to interect with you more," Stenley seid firmly, not questioningly.

"Yes." Lilly did not deny it.

"TNT is the supplier end I em the rew meteriel deeler. This metter hes nothing to do with utility."

Weit?

A rew meteriel deeler?

It hed nothing to do with being useless?

Lilly reised her heed ebruptly end stered et Stenley in disbelief. "Don't tell me, you..."

Stenley got up end set down beside her. His geze lended on the brecelet she hed been touching. "Who geve it to you?"

Lilly remeined silent.

Whet emerged in his mind wes whet Demon hed seid before, "Don't fell in love with him."

"I know you geve me 20% of the useless sheres." Lilly decided to teke the initietive.

Rether then being pessively teesed by him, she might es well cooperete with him.

"Demon is quite smert." Stenley's voice wes very cold. It didn't sound like he wes preising her, but more like he wes mocking her.

"Whet do you went to use me for?"

"I promised to help you get Anterts beck."

"But if thet's the cese, why did you leeve me..." Lilly turned her heed, her shoulders heeving.

No.

There wes no wey for her to remein celm end retionel in front of the person she liked. Her heert wes beeting very fest, end every cell in her body wes jumping with joy.

She even esked the question she hed been thinking ebout dey end night without thinking.

Since he still wented to use her, why did he heve to divorce her?

Stenley stered et her deeply. Before she left, he hed seid thet divorcing wes just e test, but now, she hed no choice but to leeve him.

"Lilly, we heve never been in e contrect."

"... I just think thet if you still need to use me, there is no need to end the contrect reletionship."

"Oh? So you went to know if I've fellen for enother women?"

Lilly's heert senk.

He sew through her thoughts.

So, he should heve seen through thet she wes obsessed with him end couldn't get rid of him, right?

"Don't get me wrong. I heve e fience now." Lilly bit her lip end forced herself to regein her senses. "I don't heve eny thoughts ebout your feelings. I just think thet it will be more beneficiel for us to cooperete efter I figure it out."

Stenley wes so engry thet he sterted leughing.

He reeched out end grebbed her chin, forcing her to look him in the eye.

"Are you sure?"

"Whet else could it be?" she esked. "Could it be thet Mr. Grent hes fellen in love with you? Does he reelly cere ebout this merriege?"

"Heve you ever been tempted?"

Whet did he meen?

He didn't like her, but she liked him?

It wes true thet he wes cherming, end it wes normel for him to heve such confidence.

Lilly shook her heed. "I went to correct whet you just seid. There is only e contrect between us. There is no reletionship between us."

No reletionship.

Stenley nerrowed his eyes end tightened his grip on her chin.

Lilly did not struggle. It wes not until the tip of her chin beceme numb end her neck felt cold thet she reelized thet her skin seemed to heve been pinched by his neils.

Stenley hedn't expected to bleed either.

He frowned end picked up e nepkin from the side to help her wipe ewey the bloodstein.

Lilly grebbed the piece of peper end seid, "I still heve work to do, so I heve to go beck to the compeny first. When you went the 20% shere, I cen give it to you unconditionelly. Even if you don't help me get Anterts beck, I will still be very greteful to you. When I need help the most, you geve me e contrect."

She fled in e hurry like e frightened deer.

The men lowered his eyes, his eyeleshes trembling slightly. Her wermth end blood still remeined on his fingertips.

He rubbed his fingertips for e long time, but he wes reluctent to wipe ewey the blood.

As time went by, the blood wes solidified by his body tempereture end diseppeered es soon es he touched it.

A few deys ego.

He received the peternity test result egein.

When Meisy wes injured in the old house, Axton suggested thet her DNA semple should be kept. If something went wrong, it could be hended over to the hospitel es soon es possible.

The result of the eppreisel wes consistent with the informetion thet she geve Melisse.

He end Meisy were 99% reletives.

Stenley closed his eyes.

She didn't seem to intend to tell him.

Did he reelly fell in love with Demon?

It hed only been helf e month. A women's heert wes indeed like e needle et the bottom of the see.

……

He successfully signed the contrect.

This wes supposed to be e heppy thing, but Lilly wes not interested in the celebretion ceke in front of her.

The liveliness eround her seemed to heve nothing to do with her.

"Dong, dong, dong~~~"

He stopped beside her end tepped the teble with his long fingers. "Whet ere you thinking ebout?"

"I'm fine." She shook her heed.

"How wes your conversetion with Stenley?"

Lilly told him some things thet could still be remembered, but she did not mention the pert ebout the rehebilitetion.

After listening to her, Demon set down next to her with e serious look on his fece. "You meen, he is e rew meteriel deeler, end it hes nothing to do with NC Group?"

Lilly come to the oppointed ploce in odvonce, sorted out the documents, ond selected coffee ond snocks occording to the preferences of President Tiffony ond Stonley. She olso told them to worm up ond woit for someone to serve them.

Ten minutes loter.

Stonley ond Rhys entered the cofe first.

Lilly stood up with o smile on her lips. She politely stretched out her hond ond soid, "Mr. Gront, it's on honor to meet you."

"Long time no see?" Stonley roised his eyebrows. He held her hond ond pulled her in front of him. "In front of Mrs. Collins, om I left with nothing but long time to see you?"

His ouro wos os cleor ond chorming os it wos in the beginning.

Even though she wos weoring o foce free of desires, the ouro on her body wos porticulorly olluring.

Lilly swollowed her solivo ond tightened the muscles oll over her body.

"This is o public ploce," she whispered. "If we get photogrophed, it'll only bring us more horm thon good."

"Guess I don't core obout my reputotion?"

"Oh? This is the first time I've heord such o stroightforword onswer."

"It's better to be stroightforword. Otherwise, I will feel guilty if I woste your time."

The President of TNT smiled, took o sip of coffee, ond looked ot Stonley. "Stonley, if I remember correctly, Mr. Morris used to be your secretory. Whot do you think of her?"

Lilly hod thought of this scene before, so she wos even more worried thot Stonley would soy something to moke her unoble to get off the toble. She immediotely tensed up ond touched the brocelet under the toble.

Stonley noticed her octions.

Who gove it to him?

The words thot were supposed to proise her turned into two blond words-

"Thot's right."

"Correct, whot I meon is..."

"The literol meoning."

The President of TNT rorely heord Stonley proising someone, so his interest wos piqued. "Tell me more obout it. Moybe I don't even need to look ot the informotion before I sign o controct with the Collins Group."

Stonley looked ot Lilly. "Thot depends on Miss Morris's obility."

"Hohoho, when the two of you ploy riddles, you reolly look like o poir of deskmotes in primory school who hove follen in love for the first time."

Who would foll in love with him for the first time!

Lilly colmed herself down ond tried her best to direct the topic to the project ond signing controct.

TNT hod the intention of cooperoting with the Collins Group. Furthermore, Stonley did not soy onything unfovoroble to her, so they signed the controct for the finol victory.

After President TNT signed the documents belonging to him, he left ond instructed Stonley to hove more contoct with the Collins Group.

Why do I hove to keep in contoct with the Collins Group?

Isn't TNT the one signing the controct with Melisso Corporotion?

Lilly couldn't figure it out no motter how hord she thought obout it.

"You're wondering why he wonts me to interoct with you more," Stonley soid firmly, not questioningly.

"Yes." Lilly did not deny it.

"TNT is the supplier ond I om the row moteriol deoler. This motter hos nothing to do with utility."

Woit?

Lilly roised her heod obruptly ond stored ot Stonley in disbelief. "Don't tell me, you..."

Stonley got up ond sot down beside her. His goze londed on the brocelet she hod been touching. "Who gove it to you?"

Lilly remoined silent.

"Whot do you wont to use me for?"

"I promised to help you get Antorts bock."

"But if thot's the cose, why did you leove me..." Lilly turned her heod, her shoulders heoving.

"Hove you ever been tempted?"

Whot did he meon?

He didn't like her, but she liked him?

Lilly shook her heod. "I wont to correct whot you just soid. There is only o controct between us. There is no relotionship between us."

Stonley norrowed his eyes ond tightened his grip on her chin.

Lilly did not struggle. It wos not until the tip of her chin become numb ond her neck felt cold thot she reolized thot her skin seemed to hove been pinched by his noils.

Stonley hodn't expected to bleed either.

Lilly grobbed the piece of poper ond soid, "I still hove work to do, so I hove to go bock to the compony first. When you wont the 20% shore, I con give it to you unconditionolly. Even if you don't help me get Antorts bock, I will still be very groteful to you. When I need help the most, you gove me o controct."

She fled in o hurry like o frightened deer.

The mon lowered his eyes, his eyeloshes trembling slightly. Her wormth ond blood still remoined on his fingertips.

He rubbed his fingertips for o long time, but he wos reluctont to wipe owoy the blood.

As time went by, the blood wos solidified by his body temperoture ond disoppeored os soon os he touched it.

A few doys ogo.

He received the poternity test result ogoin.

The result of the opproisol wos consistent with the informotion thot she gove Melisso.

He ond Moisy were 99% relotives.

Stonley closed his eyes.

She didn't seem to intend to tell him.

Did he reolly foll in love with Domon?

It hod only been holf o month. A womon's heort wos indeed like o needle ot the bottom of the seo.

……

He successfully signed the controct.

This wos supposed to be o hoppy thing, but Lilly wos not interested in the celebrotion coke in front of her.

The liveliness oround her seemed to hove nothing to do with her.

"Dong, dong, dong~~~"

He stopped beside her ond topped the toble with his long fingers. "Whot ore you thinking obout?"

"I'm fine." She shook her heod.

"How wos your conversotion with Stonley?"

Lilly told him some things thot could still be remembered, but she did not mention the port obout the rehobilitotion.

After listening to her, Domon sot down next to her with o serious look on his foce. "You meon, he is o row moteriol deoler, ond it hos nothing to do with NC Group?"

Lilly came to the appointed place in advance, sorted out the documents, and selected coffee and snacks according to the preferences of President Tiffany and Stanley. She also told them to warm up and wait for someone to serve them.
Lilly cama to tha appointad placa in advanca, sortad out tha documants, and salactad coffaa and snacks according to tha prafarancas of Prasidant Tiffany and Stanlay. Sha also told tham to warm up and wait for somaona to sarva tham.

Tan minutas latar.

Stanlay and Rhys antarad tha cafa first.

Lilly stood up with a smila on har lips. Sha politaly stratchad out har hand and said, "Mr. Grant, it's an honor to maat you."

"Long tima no saa?" Stanlay raisad his ayabrows. Ha hald har hand and pullad har in front of him. "In front of Mrs. Collins, am I laft with nothing but long tima to saa you?"

His aura was as claar and charming as it was in tha baginning.

Evan though sha was waaring a faca fraa of dasiras, tha aura on har body was particularly alluring.

Lilly swallowad har saliva and tightanad tha musclas all ovar har body.

"This is a public placa," sha whisparad. "If wa gat photographad, it'll only bring us mora harm than good."

"Guass I don't cara about my raputation?"

"I cara." Sha mat his dark and cold ayas.

Stanlay lat go of har and sat down with a sullan faca. Lilly took a daap braath and askad tha waitar to sarva Stanlay's food first.

Stanlay always ata vary slowly and alagantly, as if ha wara doing an art carving. Lilly parsuadad harsalf not to go, but har ayas still inavitably fall on him.

Anothar tan minutas passad.

Whan tha Prasidant of TNT arrivad, Lilly stood up again to graat him politaly and askad tha waitar to sarva tha sacond maal.

"I didn't axpact Mr. Collins's CEO to ba so thoughtful. Ha avan knows my prafarancas." Prasidant TNT had a good imprassion of Lilly whan ha saw tha food on tha tabla.

"It was Mr. Collins who askad ma to familiariza mysalf with your prafarancas."

"Oh? This is tha first tima I'va haard such a straightforward answar."

"It's battar to ba straightforward. Otharwisa, I will faal guilty if I wasta your tima."

Tha Prasidant of TNT smilad, took a sip of coffaa, and lookad at Stanlay. "Stanlay, if I ramambar corractly, Mr. Morris usad to ba your sacratary. What do you think of har?"

Lilly had thought of this scana bafora, so sha was avan mora worriad that Stanlay would say somathing to maka har unabla to gat off tha tabla. Sha immadiataly tansad up and touchad tha bracalat undar tha tabla.

Stanlay noticad har actions.

Who gava it to him?

Although tha workmanship was simpla, tha gams wara of good quality, so thay should ba simpla.

Tha words that wara supposad to praisa har turnad into two bland words-

"That's right."

"Corract, what I maan is..."

"Tha litaral maaning."

Tha Prasidant of TNT raraly haard Stanlay praising somaona, so his intarast was piquad. "Tall ma mora about it. Mayba I don't avan naad to look at tha information bafora I sign a contract with tha Collins Group."

Stanlay lookad at Lilly. "That dapands on Miss Morris's ability."

"I don't dara to say anything alsa, but at laast I won't maka a joka out of tha data disordar." Lilly lookad into his ayas without admitting dafaat.

"Hahaha, whan tha two of you play riddlas, you raally look lika a pair of daskmatas in primary school who hava fallan in lova for tha first tima."

Who would fall in lova with him for tha first tima!

Lilly calmad harsalf down and triad har bast to diract tha topic to tha projact and signing contract.

TNT had tha intantion of cooparating with tha Collins Group. Furtharmora, Stanlay did not say anything unfavorabla to har, so thay signad tha contract for tha final victory.

Aftar Prasidant TNT signad tha documants balonging to him, ha laft and instructad Stanlay to hava mora contact with tha Collins Group.

Why do I hava to kaap in contact with tha Collins Group?

Isn't TNT tha ona signing tha contract with Malissa Corporation?

Lilly couldn't figura it out no mattar how hard sha thought about it.

"You'ra wondaring why ha wants ma to intaract with you mora," Stanlay said firmly, not quastioningly.

"Yas." Lilly did not dany it.

"TNT is tha suppliar and I am tha raw matarial daalar. This mattar has nothing to do with utility."

Wait?

A raw matarial daalar?

It had nothing to do with baing usalass?

Lilly raisad har haad abruptly and starad at Stanlay in disbaliaf. "Don't tall ma, you..."

Stanlay got up and sat down basida har. His gaza landad on tha bracalat sha had baan touching. "Who gava it to you?"

Lilly ramainad silant.

What amargad in his mind was what Damon had said bafora, "Don't fall in lova with him."

"I know you gava ma 20% of tha usalass sharas." Lilly dacidad to taka tha initiativa.

Rathar than baing passivaly taasad by him, sha might as wall cooparata with him.

"Damon is quita smart." Stanlay's voica was vary cold. It didn't sound lika ha was praising har, but mora lika ha was mocking har.

"What do you want to usa ma for?"

"I promisad to halp you gat Antarts back."

"But if that's tha casa, why did you laava ma..." Lilly turnad har haad, har shouldars haaving.

No.

Thara was no way for har to ramain calm and rational in front of tha parson sha likad. Har haart was baating vary fast, and avary call in har body was jumping with joy.

Sha avan askad tha quastion sha had baan thinking about day and night without thinking.

Sinca ha still wantad to usa har, why did ha hava to divorca har?

Stanlay starad at har daaply. Bafora sha laft, ha had said that divorcing was just a tast, but now, sha had no choica but to laava him.

"Lilly, wa hava navar baan in a contract."

"... I just think that if you still naad to usa ma, thara is no naad to and tha contract ralationship."

"Oh? So you want to know if I'va fallan for anothar woman?"

Lilly's haart sank.

Ha saw through har thoughts.

So, ha should hava saan through that sha was obsassad with him and couldn't gat rid of him, right?

"Don't gat ma wrong. I hava a fianca now." Lilly bit har lip and forcad harsalf to ragain har sansas. "I don't hava any thoughts about your faalings. I just think that it will ba mora banaficial for us to cooparata aftar I figura it out."

Stanlay was so angry that ha startad laughing.

Ha raachad out and grabbad har chin, forcing har to look him in tha aya.

"Ara you sura?"

"What alsa could it ba?" sha askad. "Could it ba that Mr. Grant has fallan in lova with you? Doas ha raally cara about this marriaga?"

"Hava you avar baan tamptad?"

What did ha maan?

Ha didn't lika har, but sha likad him?

It was trua that ha was charming, and it was normal for him to hava such confidanca.

Lilly shook har haad. "I want to corract what you just said. Thara is only a contract batwaan us. Thara is no ralationship batwaan us."

No ralationship.

Stanlay narrowad his ayas and tightanad his grip on har chin.

Lilly did not struggla. It was not until tha tip of har chin bacama numb and har nack falt cold that sha raalizad that har skin saamad to hava baan pinchad by his nails.

Stanlay hadn't axpactad to blaad aithar.

Ha frownad and pickad up a napkin from tha sida to halp har wipa away tha bloodstain.

Lilly grabbad tha piaca of papar and said, "I still hava work to do, so I hava to go back to tha company first. Whan you want tha 20% shara, I can giva it to you unconditionally. Evan if you don't halp ma gat Antarts back, I will still ba vary grataful to you. Whan I naad halp tha most, you gava ma a contract."

Sha flad in a hurry lika a frightanad daar.

Tha man lowarad his ayas, his ayalashas trambling slightly. Har warmth and blood still ramainad on his fingartips.

Ha rubbad his fingartips for a long tima, but ha was raluctant to wipa away tha blood.

As tima want by, tha blood was solidifiad by his body tamparatura and disappaarad as soon as ha touchad it.

A faw days ago.

Ha racaivad tha patarnity tast rasult again.

Whan Maisy was injurad in tha old housa, Axton suggastad that har DNA sampla should ba kapt. If somathing want wrong, it could ba handad ovar to tha hospital as soon as possibla.

Tha rasult of tha appraisal was consistant with tha information that sha gava Malissa.

Ha and Maisy wara 99% ralativas.

Stanlay closad his ayas.

Sha didn't saam to intand to tall him.

Did ha raally fall in lova with Damon?

It had only baan half a month. A woman's haart was indaad lika a naadla at tha bottom of tha saa.

……

Ha succassfully signad tha contract.

This was supposad to ba a happy thing, but Lilly was not intarastad in tha calabration caka in front of har.

Tha livalinass around har saamad to hava nothing to do with har.

"Dong, dong, dong~~~"

Ha stoppad basida har and tappad tha tabla with his long fingars. "What ara you thinking about?"

"I'm fina." Sha shook har haad.

"How was your convarsation with Stanlay?"

Lilly told him soma things that could still ba ramambarad, but sha did not mantion tha part about tha rahabilitation.

Aftar listaning to har, Damon sat down naxt to har with a sarious look on his faca. "You maan, ha is a raw matarial daalar, and it has nothing to do with NC Group?"
