Chapter 270 No Rights to Be Mad at Me
Dinner was simple enough to make. The weather had been hot for the past two days and Calista was a little tired of eating out in Aphton. Therefore, she decided to go vegetarian today
She rinsed and cut the vegetables before blanching and dishing them up. She then drizzled some sauce on top. Dinner was ready in less than fifteen minutes
Lucian saw her walking out with two plates of blanched vegetables for dinner. The vegetables still looked
He frowned and said, “Is this a token of appreciation for me or animal feed?”
Calista took back the plate that she was giving him and said. “I’m sorry this is too simple for you That’s why I asked when you would be free I make a dinner reservation for us at a ten star restaurant as my
token of appreciation
Lucian lowered his volume and, unbelievably, he sounded a little hurt
“I didn’t say that I didn’t want it. Besides, we only have five–star restaurants in the whole of our country”
“If I didn’t exaggerate it, it wouldn’t befit your grandeur
Lucian was speechless. He decided to keep quiet. If not, he was sure he would have nothing to eat. David
was right, there was no reasoning with women
Calista was already eating. His dinner was on her right and he reached out for it. She glanced at him but
she didn’t stop him
Lucian tasted the dish. It wasn’t as bad as he had thought. It was surprisingly appetizing considering the
recent hot weather.
“It’s not bad.”
After dinner, Calista was going to clean the dishes. Lucian held her hand and offered, “Let me do it.”
As an afterthought, he added, “You must be tired after working the whole day.”
Lucian spent some time overseas after he graduated from college. He prepared his meals. As such, doing
the dishes was an easy task for him.
Calista refused, “I can’t let a guest do the dishes. The dinner might have been simple, but it was to thank
you for helping me in Aphton..
Lucian tightened his fists when he heard her calling him a guest and thanking him. He interrupted her with
I’ve been watching soap operas with David and I recently learned a trick is shut women up i think it’s quite useful but I haven’t tried it in real life I don’t know how affection 116 chill by if now
He reached out to pull her into an embrace as he spoke Calista had no idea what he leaned as the
hadn’t watched soap operas for a long time
She got a little nervous and chucked the dishes into this outstretched handl
“Here, you can clean up
After doing the dishes, he took out the photo he received today from the folder and showed it to Calista
Her face ashened as soon as she saw the photo The memones she’d been trying so hard to forget come
flooding back. She snatched the photo from him and tore it into pieces in front of him
“How did you get this photo? Were you investigating me?
Her emotions were a little out of control But she regained her composure as soon as she asked that and
realized that she had asked a dumb question
It was a photo, not a screenshot from a surveillance video The nightclubs in the photo had been chut
down a few years back.
Even if he did investigate her, he wouldn’t get his hands on the surveillance videos
Lucian kept an unemotional expression and was extremely silent. It felt like the calm before the storm.
“So, it’s the truth then?”
Calista was just a teenager in the photo. Even though it was a blurry photo, it was obvious that she had no
make–up on and she looked fresh–faced.
At that age, she was already hanging out with Paul. He knew her as well. When he noticed that she still had a huge reaction, he knew that she must have been distressed about it for some time.
But he had no idea back then. If he didn’t know, Paul wouldn’t as well.
Clenching the torn photo in her fists, Calista turned to look at him after a while with a slight smile.
“It’s true. I have no idea how you got this photo. But, we are not married now and we’re divorced now.
You’ve got no night to use this photo too, she bit her lips and continued with a trembling voice, “find
Lucian frowned and said, “I’m not looking to find faults with you.”
He could see that Calista was getting a little emotional. But, he couldn’t understand why. They were no longer living in a repressive society.
The photo wasn’t very scandalous and she wasn’t even that close to the two men in the photo. With the content of that photo alone, there was no reason to be this upset.
Calista didn’t want to be reminded of that disgusting incident. She then asked Lucian to leave.
Lucian’s expression was very stern and his gaze was horrifyingly cold. His lips were pursed into a straight line as he grabbed Calista’s hand.
His grip on her wrist was very strong. She could feel the pressure but it wasn’t painful.
He asked, “Don’t you want to know who gave me this photo?”
He initially thought that she wouldn’t want to know or she might even sarcastically remark that he made
all this up.
However, Calista just smirked and said, “Zachary Everhart.”
Lucian’s expression became darker.
“How is he related to this?”
“He brought me to this nightclub. These two men,” Calista wanted to show him the photo but
remembered that it was already torn. “They were talking about a potential business deal. It was one of the
shady tricks used in business. I don’t think you’d be a stranger to it.”
Zachary saw her as a tool to achieve his goal by making her sleep with his business partners.
Calista had no idea about it at that time. Zachary brought her to the nightclub on the pretext of her helping him to get home after he entertained his business partners.
When they got to the nightclub, he made her wait for him in a separate lounge.
At that time, she was in her junior year in high school. She had no idea about the ugly dealings that went
behind a shiny facade.
She even felt a little happy when Zachary brought her to the nightclub. She thought that he loved her more
Shan he did Nikolette.
the two men came in, they made no mention of Zachary and insisted that she was working at the Golub. I didn’t matter how hard she tried to explain to them, they still forced themselves on her.
he nightclub took pity on her. The waiter went to get Zachary when he heard her
She still was underage then. When the men realized that things had taken a serious turn, they stopped
They were in Capeton after all. Regardless of their status, they’d still be skinned alive if they committed a
crime in public.
Calista had no idea who took a picture of the incident. All she knew was, the photo was sent to Zachary the next day and she was severely reprimanded.
He said that she was promiscuous and that she had embarrassed him in front of everyone.
In addition to Zachary, her grandparents, aunts, uncles, and her stepmother with whom she shared a
rocky relationship, took the opportunity to reprimand her and called her an embarrassment to the family.
Calista always thought that it was an accident until Nikolette accidentally leaked the truth. She then
found out that it was a trap.
Both the men had weird preferences and Zachary decided to throw her under the bus. Needless to say, her stepmother must have played a role in making that happen.
Lucian’s expression was extremely icy. The slight smile he had on his face was terrifying.
“That is to say, Zachary Everhart sold you out?”
