Chapter 102 Force Her
Calista pursed her lips and remained silent.
Just when Lucian thought she had finally recognized who he was after regaining her senses, she once again reached out to push his face away, annoyed, and said, “Stay away from me; just looking at you annoys me.”
Johnathan, standing nearby, watched with a pounding heart. Although Calista had not always been gentle, she was never as hostile as now. He feared Lucian would get mad at her and leave her by the roadside.
Lucian tried to keep his irritation at bay. He opened the car door and pushed her inside.
Then, ordered, “Go to Everglade Manor.”
“I’m not going to Everglade Manor. I want to go back to The Oasis. Take me there!”
Even in her drunkard state, Calista refused to return to the Everglade Manor. The Oasis was the name of the apartment she currently lived in.
Lucian immediately thought of the apartment’s owner when he heard the name. His eyes turned dull, but he ignored her.
He turned his head toward the window, closed his eyes, and pretended to rest.
If Calista were sober, she would have realized that his patience had reached its limit. However, she was so drunk she couldn’t read the room. She only knew that he was ignoring her.
“Talk to me.”
Calista swung her hand towards him, but he quickly grabbed her before she could reach him.
Anger welled up in him, and he roared at her, “Shut up.”
Calista looked at him with a helpless expression.
“You’re being mean to me.”
Lucian replied, “I’m not being mean to you.”
Without warning, Calista swung her other hand again. He didn’t stop this time; her nails grazed his throat, drawing blood.
“If you want to talk, then talk. Why are you being mean? Shut up!”
She transformed from a helpless little girl into a ruthless, violent lady. Lucian’s face turned dark, and he removed his tie to wrap it around her hands. Then he pressed pressed her onto his lap.
There was no way Calista would obey him. The more he ordered her, the more she struggled.
“Let go of me!”
Her hands moved against his legs through the layer of fabric, and Lucian pursed his lips, swallowing hard.
He looked out the window with a blank face, allowing Calista to do as she pleased. After some time, she seemed to have had enough and finally calmed down.
But this lasted under five minutes before she leaned against his chest and said, “Your heart is beating so fast.”
Lucian pushed her away, his face growing colder.
“Sit down and shut up.”
Calista licked her lips and said, “I want some water.”
“You’re pushing it. Get it yourself.”
Despite his words, Lucian gave her some water patiently, fearing she might choke. He did it until
she furrowed her brows and began to protest, at which point he stopped.
After a few minutes of silence, Calista suddenly said, “Should I help you win over Lily?”
Lucian wondered how to shut her up.
“Bro, don’t be so concerned about your image,” Calista circled her arms around his neck, pulled him closer, and advised, “This won’t get you the girl. Listen to me, and I guarantee Lily will be head over heels for you in a week.”
As she inched closer, Lucian seemed to recall something. This scene felt like it had happened before. But, he chuckled self–deprecatingly and pushed it back.
“So, what’s your advice on pursuing her?”
Tust you sleep with her ”
At the Hatte boht ahead Johnathan nearly lost control and accidentally stepped on the gas
instead of the brakes Tusan looked up and glared at him through the rearview mirror
Johnathan immediately sat up straight and stared ahead. He would have covered his ears if he
weren’t diving Calista continued to analyze his situation
She’ll refuse, so you have to force her
4ity may seem innocent, but she was quite stubborn It was a simple matter of pride. She could easily state what she wanted, but instead, she made people figure it out themselves.
It they couldn’t she would conclude that they didn’t love her.
Calista thought it was because she was too much of an airhead Marrying her would create a
generation with lower intelligence
But she definitely couldn’t say these thoughts in front of Lucian
Instead she continued. “Then shell probably cry a lot. At that point, you’ll swear to her on your hie that you’ll be cursed Just make it sound temble After that, you send flowers, jewelry, houses, and cars. Deliver gifts to her at her dance studio and make it as public as possible. She’ll say she doesn’t want it, but she does. No matter what you’ll keep being persistent. Send her luxury gifts for a whole week, and she’ll be head over heels for you!”
However, time can only tell if Lily might kick him to the curb later. After all, that was what she did in the past
Lucian stared at her flushed and mesmerizing face, his eyes deep with emotion
“You understand her. But what about you? Would you like it if some guy tried to win you over with these methods?”
There was no way! Calista would probably puke. No one but Lily had such a particular taste in
But to make her argument more convincing, Calista nodded without hesitation.
“Yes, that’s why, bro, you need to give it your all.”
Lucian scoffed lightly and removed her hand from himself, saying. “Friends don’t put their arms around each other.”
Calista was speechless. He still missed the point after everything. No wonder he got dumped!
Johnathan was an experienced driver, and he drove smoothly. The car had the right temperature, and soon Calista felt drowsy.
She was quickly overwhelmed by the effects of the alcohol, and she drifted off to sleep.
The next day, Calista abruptly woke up from her slumber. She stared at her surroundings before realizing she was in the master bedroom of the Everglade Manor.
The aftermath of her hangover hit her in the next moment. She hissed in pain as her head hurt. She furrowed her brows, massaged her temples, and climbed out of bed.
How had she ended up here?
Her memory went as far as last night when she was drinking with Yara. She had no recollection of leaving the room, let alone how she had returned here.
Calista looked down at herself. She wore the same clothes from last night, now wrinkled from her sleep. She felt someone’s eyes on her and looked up to see Lucian, who had her phone in his hand.
She quickly got up from the bed, not even bothering to put on her shoes
Walking barefoot toward Lucian, she snatched her phone back and exclaimed, “Don’t you have any manners? How could you go through someone else’s phone?”
