Chapter 26 It’s Annoying When Men Keep Festering
Calista was unbothered by Lucian’s threat
She only knew that she would never share the same car as him, even if she had return
Everglade Manor right now.
She went there by cab. The two of them arrived at the same time
Calista ignored him. She snorted and entered the maner first
Sally was elated upon her return “Madam, you’re finally back! Mr. Northwood was uns is
days because you weren’t around. I didn’t dare to make a noise when i was deamng fire house
On top of Calista’s approachable demeanor, Sally was personally hired by Casta
She was comfortable with Calista around as she began grumbling, is common for crugies to
have disagreements. Mr. Northwood cares for you-
Calista didn’t want to hear any good words about Lucian, so she questioned. “Sally, does tour

Sally couldn’t understand why Calista asked that Sally answered honestly Yeates A HÁNY

Calista changed her shoes and walked into the living room, sayang melitecade Remy husband
never eats what I buy, let alone the food I make ”
Words failed Sally when she heard that She sneaked a peek at the man by the fo
Lucian’s expression was dark, and his lips were pursed. The au around him was tome
Calista headed upstairs and entered the bedroom. The tamsitar are her
It was possible that Lucian didn’t return to the manor this whole time
The arrangement of the decorations was the same as before Beber tearso
were still there.
It was an impromptu decision, so she didn’t take anything with her back then
There were two 20–inch suitcases at bouse Even the led them the
more than half full
She took only the ones she bought herself, leaving the clothes Lucian bought her.
Previously, he would buy the latest seasonal collections from big brands. These were items that
ordinary people might not even have the opportunity to buy in their lifetime.
Even if she were to wear a different outfit every day, they could last her for two whole years.
Lucian never reciprocated Calista’s feelings, but he treated her well in terms of material matters.
It was to the extent that it was the origin of her delusion that he might like her.
He entered the room when she was stuffing the suitcases.
Frustration bubbled in him as his expression darkened. “Why do you have to cause a ruckus just
because I didn’t eat the food you bought? It’s such a trivial matter.”
Calista placed the folded clothes into the suitcase. She stood up and met his eyes. “You think it’s
He frowned impatiently. “I thought both of us were fine with that.”
It was Selena’s idea to have Calista work at Northwood Corporation as his personal assistant. He
did as Selena told him, but that didn’t mean that he must eat the food Calista bought.
He told her that she could apply for other departments if she wanted to. But she didn’t.
Since she lacked the passion to build her career and was satisfied with the easy job, he had
nothing to say. All he did was take her as an idle employee.
Calista almost burst into laughter at his confident attitude. She wished she could pry his head
open to see what he had on his mind.
“Yeah. We were fine with that, so I want a divorce now. This was the agreement.” She wasn’t in the
mood to organize the clothes.
She thrust the pile of clothes into the suitcases and zipped them. “I’ll take the rest tomorrow. We
can divorce on Monday. Let’s straighten things out as soon as possible.”
Lucian’s patience ran out when she said that. When she bypassed him with the suitcases, he
pulled her wrist to pin her onto the couch
He took out his phone for her. “Order it
Her brow knitted. She didn’t know what he was trying to do with that.
He continued, “You heard the doctor today. Mom won’t be able to handle the news of our divorce.
You’re throwing a tantrum because I didn’t eat your food, right? 1
“Order some food right now, and I’ll eat it. Do not bring up the divorce again. At least until Mom
The crease between her brows didn’t smoothen. She thought that he was doing this on purpose.
The root of the problem was never about the food or her antics.
He was clearly aware of the biggest issue of the marriage. Yet, he avoided the main problem and
deliberately misinterpreted her words.
She stared right into his eyes. “Keeping it a secret is my biggest concession. I won’t let her find out about the divorce. I can play along with it if we need to put on a show. I’ll be on call 24/7.”
She was trying everything she could to persuade Lucian. After the divorce, he wouldn’t be able to
intervene in her life if she couldn’t do as she promised.
He was on the verge of losing himself. She decided to bite the bullet and drop the bomb. “Lucian Northwood, it’s annoying when men keep pestering.”
She knew him all too well. Lucian grew up in a prestigious family at the top of society, where
people highly regarded him.
How could he possibly tolerate such humiliation?
“Pestering?” Ominous intent seeped into his voice. He was agitated, as Calista had expected.
He scoffed and sneered. “Do you think you’re worth me doing that?”
Lucian straightened his back, staring at her. “The lawyer will contact you about the details for the divorce tomorrow. Leave this house at this instant.” @
She quickly rose from the couch and carried the suitcases with her.
She ran out with all her might, fearing that he would take his word back. “I’ll pack up the rest
