Nathan signed it without hesitation, and the two immediately went through the legal proceedings.
There weren’t many people divorcing that day, so it was quickly sorted
After receiving the divorce certificate, Emilia couldn’t help but feel a surreal sense of finality, as if her youth had come to an end at this very
Her thoughts were disrupted when Nathan spoke up, his words cutting through her thoughts. “Since we’re divorced, don’t see Grandpa again.”
Emilia had once saved Noah’s life, and he had developed a strong fondness for her. That was why she was able to marry Nathan.
She nodded, a mocking smile tugging at her lips. “Don’t worry. I won’t see your family again.”
Within the Miller family, there was hardly anyone she had genuinely liked or who had treated her kindly, except for Noah.
With her words hanging in the air, she didn’t give Nathan an opportunity to respond. Instead, she turned on her heel and left City Hall.
Seeing Emilia agree without even sparing him a second glance, Nathan couldn’t help raising his eyebrows.
For the past three years, Emilia had clung to him, seeking his affection and attention incessantly. Yet now, she was acting strangely, displaying no signs of attachment or affection. It was rather unexpected.
He followed her outside.
Emilia got into Hayden’s car.
She took a deep breath and said, “Let’s go.”
Okay. Hayden’s smile carried a hint of mocking provocation as he glanced at Nathan. Suddenly, he raised his hand and flipped the other
The next second, Hayden’s convertible sports car executed a breathtaking slide, spinning around with the agility of the wind, passing by han with an air of grandeur
This dazzling maneuver left Shawn, who was about to drive Nathan, utterly flabbergasted.
Shawn couldn’t help but glance at Nathan’s composed and handsome face and ventured cautiously. “Mr. Miller, the person who came with Ms. Saunders is Hayden, a popular young star in the entertainment industry. Shouldn’t we do something about this?
It appeared as if Emilia had cheated on Nathan, and the man was openly taunting him.
“Do something?” Nathan sneered. “He’s not worth the trouble, just some inconsequential figure.”
Nathan had little regard for women like Emilia, who had used manipulation to climb their way to success, or for celebrities.
As long as it didn’t bring shame upon him, he had no intention of meddling.
Nevertheless, he felt an inexplicable irritation at that moment because nobody had dared to provoke him like this before.
Emilia’s pretty boy lover had achieved just that.
At that moment, Nathan’s phone rang. Seeing the caller ID, he narrowed his eyes and picked up.
Jessica’s choked voice came through the phone. “Nathan, Nathan, the doctor said my legs won’t recover…”
A month ago, Jessica had a severe accident on stage, and it was possible that her legs would never regain their strength. Nathan had been at her side in the hospital all this time, fearing that she might consider taking her own life.
That day, they had received the specific diagnosis, and it didn’t sound promising. Nathan frowned immediately, entering the car with Shawn’s
“Don’t cry. I’ll be right there.”
Meanwhile, Emilia got into her car and couldn’t help but chuckle when the witnessed Hayden’s childish act of flipping off Nathan. “What are you doing
Hayden snorted. Just showing my disdain for him! Lia, you’re an
incredible woman, and so many people adore you. Yet, he’s abandoned. you like this. He has no taste. Besides, I really can’t see what you saw in him; he’s so cold and emotionless.”
Emilia smiled but remained silent.
It could only be said that Nathan hadn’t been like this a decade ago, which was why she had hesitated for so long.
At that moment, the car’s radio abruptly interrupted with breaking news: [Rising Dancing Queen Jessica injured, found embracing CEO of Miller Group in the ward–suspected to rekindle their relationship.]
The breaking news sent Hayden’s demeanor into an abrupt somberness. Swiftly, he retrieved his phone, tapped on Twitter, and observed that “Jessica and Nathan Rekindle Their Romance” had already seized the top trending spot.
The entire internet was buzzing with news of Jessica and Nathan, accompanied by photos of a hospital gown–clad Jessica, locked in an embrace with the man.
Hayden’s emotions surged, and he didn’t even notice that this news was from yesterday. He couldn’t help but curse Nathan.
“That scumbag! It hasn’t even been half an hour after the divorce, yet he’s already getting cozy with another woman. Lia, now that the leash is off, he can go to hell by himself!”
Emilia reclined in her seat, her heart briefly trembled when she heard the
She hadn’t anticipated Nathan to be so eager to reconcile with Jessica.
Nevertheless, it was inconsequential. She and Nathan were officially divorced now.
Henceforth, he could be with whomever he desired, and she had no stake in his life.
For her, the paramount objective was to reclaim Saunders Group, unveil the truth about her father’s death, and retake everything that was rightfully hers
The car swiftly pulled up at Saunders Group’s entrance, and Hayden was about to accompany her inside.
Emilia pressed down on Hayden, who was about to pull the door, and put on a family’s unique insignia ring on her finger.
“I can handle this on my own. You’re a major celebrity now; there’s no need for you to get tangled up in these matters. Besides, you know what I’m capable of, don’t you?”
Upon hearing her words, Hayden paused and grinned, his eyes gleaming. “My mistake. I forgot what a big shot you are, Emilia Saunders.”
Hayden awaited the unfolding events with eagerness. “Go on ahead; I’ll be anticipating some good news from you,” he told her.
Stepping out of the car in her high heels, Emilia entered Saunders Group’s premises, only to be obstructed by the receptionist.
“Miss, who are you here to see? Do you have an appointment?”
Emilia regarded the receptionist with calmness and replied, “I don’t.
The receptionist glanced Emilia over and, despite her exceptional beauty, saw no luxury brands on her. She appeared quite ordinary. “I’m sorry, but without an appointment, you can’t enter.”
“Can’t enter?” Emilia thought.
Emilia twirled the Black Hawk Ring on her finger. “What if I insist?”
