Emilia suddenly froze.
“Nathan Miller? Why is he here?” she wondered.
Nathan was dressed in a black handmade suit. His dark eyes were covered with a layer of coldness, and he was exuding an oppressing aura.
Nathan never wore the usual working suits. His clothes were sewn manually, and he looked dignified and mature in them.
For a moment, she felt that she was seeing things.
However, looking at the man’s apathetic face and how his sharp gaze was fixed on her, it was apparent that he was there for her.
Even if she had gotten rid of her traces, it would be easy for Nathan to track her down.
Emilia immediately sobered up a little when she saw the scene before her
However, they had divorced and parted ways. Since they were strangers, there was no need for them to greet each other.
She calmed down and looked at the two loyal protectors beside him. Int her high heels, she walked forward confidently and gracefully as she passed by Nathan as if she had not known him at all.
“Stop right there.”
Suddenly, a cold voice sounded.
As if Emilia had not heard it, she continued to walk forward.
The next instant, her slender wrist was gripped by a strong force, and she could not even move an inch.
“Sir, I don’t think it’s nice to grab someone like this in public.”
The word “sir” pierced right through Nathan’s ears, and he was stunned. After a few seconds, he came back to his senses and flashed a sarcastic smile. “It has been less than a month since we divorced, yet she has. forgotten about me,” he mused.
Right then, Hayden hurried forward and went in front of Emilia, shielding her behind him.
You can talk to me if there’s anything. How dare you bully a woman.”
Hayden raised his hand forcefully and wanted to slam away the broad palm gripping Emilia’s wrist.
Just then, Emilia, who was behind Hayden, stepped forward and stood in between the two men. She placed one hand on her hip and calmly looked at the big hand on her wrist. Then, she asked ironically. “What can I do for you?”
After marrying Nathan for three years, he had never touched her.
Now that they had divorced, he touched her for the first time.
Looking at his intent gaze on her, Emilia knew that he would not let her go easily that day. She did not want to get those irrelevant people
involved in her affair with Nathan.
“Go outside and wait for me.”
Emilia’s beautiful eyes curved as she looked at Hayden and Simon.
“If he dares to bully you…”
“He can’t do anything to me.”
Hayden was a celebrity. If he came to this kind of place and had an argument with someone and got filmed, it would certainly affect him in some ways if this got exposed.
Therefore, Hayden and Simon went to the door to wait for Emilia under her strong request.
Only Nathan and Emilia were left.
He slightly narrowed his dark, unfathomable eyes as he looked at the woman who was a little tipsy. Her long hair covered half of her charming face, and her eyes were clear and sharp. She was wearing branded items from head to toe.
She had a hot and sexy figure, looking seductive yet distant. The red dress complemented her tanned skin. All the men around her just could not keep their eyes off her.
This feeling made him feel anger welled up in his chest when he was already displeased.
Nathan grabbed her tender arm, turned around, and pressed her hot. body tightly against the wall.
He pulled the hem of her dress with his big palm, and the wine–red cloth covered her tanned skin and charm.
“Ouch! You hurt me!” Emilia struggled subconsciously, but she was pressed more tightly by him.
“Emilia Saunders, what else have you been hiding from me?”
Emilia looked up, and her delicate face was slightly blushing. The expression on her face suggested that she did not care at all.
“Are you here to find fault against me? Don’t you think it’s funny to talk about this, considering our relationship?”
Nathan frowned and exerted more force on the hand that was pressing her. “What kind of relationship?”
“Emilia, you’d better not test my limits.”
Emilia just could not fathom why her action of dancing with another man after their divorce would be seen as testing her ex–husband’s limits.
Just as she was about to say something, the hand pressing her exerted even more force as if he wanted to break her apart. “Why didn’t I notice such a side of you back then? So, how many men did you have before him, and how many more do you have? Huh?”
As Nathan thought of how Emilia was dancing intimately with Simon, skin against skin, he felt an overwhelming fury roaring through his mind.
Nathan’s attractive face was full of anger. He arched a brow and warned, “You’d better not get me cuckolded or wrong me.”
As soon as the cold voice fell, Emilia forcefully broke free from his grip and raised her hand that she had been clenching tightly.
Then, she slapped him hard on his handsome face.
A red handprint instantly appeared on that man’s pale face.
“Who do you think you are? Do you think you have the right to interfere with your ex–wife’s new life?”
Emilia shook her numb hand, her gaze icy. “I’m sick of you after
spending three years with you. There are so many men out there. Since you’re useless, I’ll just find someone else.”
Nathan was at a loss for words.
“Since when this woman, who has always been gentle and spoken to me softly, has become so eloquent? She even has the guts to slap me!” he thought.
“We’ve divorced. Let’s live our lives without disturbing each other. I don’t like to be bothered.”
She was full of pride, just like a ruler watching her territory. Then, she turned on her heels and left without looking back.
She was having a good time initially, but Nathan had killed the mood. Unfazed, Emilia left the bar and told Hayden to send her home.
Nathan was angry yet confused. The scene that had happened just a moment ago seemed unreal to him. He felt like he did not know her
There was no way he would be fooled by how she looked. No matter what kind of person she had become, he could always see her through her pair of clear eyes.
Nathan clenched his fists tightly. He pursed his lips and gritted his teeth in anger as he mused, “She even slapped me…”
In all his life, no one dared to do this to him.
“She was right, though. We’ve divorced. Why should I interfere with her matter? I had nothing better to do, and I even came all the way here to Took for her!”
Nathan raised his leg angrily and kicked the corner of the table.
A burst of laughter reached his ears.
Marian almost passed out from laughing after witnessing everything that
had happened and seeing the obvious handprint on Nathan’s face.
He had known Nathan for so long, yet it was his first time seeing Nathan lose in an argument.
Laughing, Adrian walked to the front of Nathan and looked in the
direction where Emilia had just left. “Interesting. Was she the loving and caring wife you’ve mentioned?”
Nathan followed his gaze and wore a grim look. The veins on his forehead were throbbing.
Adrian continued, “How could she be loving and caring? She’s obviously a sexy and charming kitty. She’s my cup of tea! Both of you are divorced, so you won’t mind if I pursue her, right?”
Nathan clenched his fists tightly. His good–looking face was as gloomy as the lake on a winter night. He felt the urge to beat Adrian up. “My foot! Don’t you dare to lay a finger on her?”
Before Nathan could finish his words, the phone in his pocket suddenly vibrated.
It was a call from Nathan’s assistant, Shawn.
“Mr. Miller, I’ve found the photo of the daughter of the Saunders family from ten years ago, and I’ve sent it to your email.”
Nathan’s charming face grew solemn as soon as he heard that. He hung up the phone and immediately checked out the photo.
The moment he saw the face he was so familiar with, he stood rooted to the spot as if he had been struck by lightning.
“Emilia Saunders. Emily Saunders!” he muttered inwardly.
