Chapter 310 Was About to Seduce Him
Calista started to doubt herself whether she was really at the age where she started to get desperate. Otherwise, how could her thoughts be corrupted in an instant?
Worried that Lucian might sense her crooked thoughts, she lowered her head hastily.
“No need, I’m going to bed now.”
Lucian narrowed his eyes as he watched her going upstairs in a hurry. He tightened his lips as a longing desire surged within him. He didn’t want to startle her.
He went back to his room and took a shower. He took quite some time, as the bed in the bedroom still
retained Calista’s presence from the night before.
He lay down and closed his eyes. Last night, he slept in this same position at the same time and he fell into deep sleep quickly. But today, he couldn’t sleep well.
The same scent that comforted him last night now tugged at his thoughts gently. Not only did he find it hard to fall asleep, but both his body and his mind felt increasingly restless.
Half an hour later, Lucian lifted his blanket and got out of bed. Flustered, he pulled the door open and
proceeded to knock on the room next door. There was no response.
The knocking echoed in the empty corridor, carrying a deep resonance.
His already limited patience wore thin. He pressed on the doorknob right away and to his surprise, there
wasn’t any resistance and the door opened easily.
He didn’t even need to turn on the lights, and he could already see that the bed was empty under the dim light cast through the window.
Not a single piece of bedding was seen. Calista didn’t stay in this room.
Lucian snorted indifferently. He proceeded to open other doors, and until he reached the last room, he finally felt resistance from the doorknob. The door was locked.
A smile appeared on his tense face. She had run quite far. He raised his hand and knocked on the door.
After a few seconds, Calista responded in a guarded manner, “What’s the matter?”
“Open the door,” Lucian paused and continued shortly after. “I need to talk to you.”
If you have anything to say, you can just say it from the doorway. I’m already in bed.”
Lucian leaned against the wall and chuckled softly.
“Are you already in bed, or are you treating me like a potential threat?”
Unpleasant memories flashed through Calista’s mind along with his words.
“Aren’t you a threat?”
Lucian remained silent. He couldn’t defend himself for his shameless act in the past. “I’m sorry.”
Calista went silent. Ever since she overheard his conversation no longer blamed him.
She even imagined the scenario he described and she had to admit that things would go the way he said.
In such a situation, dignity, face, and pride were all meaningless.
The only difference was, in the former case, she was a victim who could reasonably demand him to be at
good husband, and she would resent him for his neglect.
In the latter case, she would’ve just treated the marriage as a deal. Even if she suffered, she would endure
it in silence until the debt was paid off.
If Lucian used this method to protect her ego, then there’s nothing wrong with him either.
“I apologize, is that enough? If not, I can say it again,” said Lucian.
This wasn’t an apology, it sounded more like a provocation. He didn’t sound apologetic at all.
“But even if I had to do it again, I would still choose to do so.”
Although Calista had already convinced herself to not blame it on me, she still felt like cursing when she
heard him say that.
“Get lost, will you?”
It was silent outside. She wasn’t sure whether Lucian had left. She had a habit of only being able to sleep
in her bed, so after his interruption, she could no longer sleep.
“So annoying! What a shameless man. I have terrible luck with men,” she thought.
Just as Calista was about to watch some movies on her phone, Yara texted her.
“Calista, are you not at home? I knocked, but there was no response.”
I moved to Everglade Manor.”
Yara’s chat status Indicated that she was typing, but it took a while for her text to come through It was
It’s not what you’re thinking”
“I wasn’t thinking about anything. That’s it, I’m leaving. You go ahead with
what I told you that day you
She sent a picture with various poses
“You’re one to talk. What’s with you and Timothy? Why was your bra clasp with him?”
Calista felt like Yara was hiding something from her. She was already behaving weirdly, obviously lost in
thoughts when they were at her shop previously
She used to ship Timothy with another guy, and there’s no way that she would ve hooked up with Timothy
instead. After a few minutes, Yara still hadn’t replied
Calista texted, “If you’re not telling me, then should I go and ask Timothy instead?”
“Initially, I planned to seduce him. But then he said he was going to charge me with attempted rape, forced indecency, and public order offenses At that time, my bra was already halfway off So the clasp was ripped off when I was in a hurry. Who knew he’d pick it up and give it back to me.”
This was even more shocking than the picture she sent with various poses
“Why did you seduce him?”
Calista waited even longer for her reply this time. Her chat status didn’t show that she was typing too
Finally, Calista could no longer hold it in and was about to give it a call, she replied, “Jamie was detained for intentional assault. The other party refused a settlement and insisted on pressing charges
Jamie was Yara’s younger brother, who was a sophomore in college. Calista couldn’t lie down in peace anymore. As she got up and changed her clothes, she called Yara
Right when the call got through, she asked immediately. “When did this happen?”
“Five days ago.
“Wait for me at my apartment entrance. I’ll be there in a minute.”
There’s no need for you to come over at such a late hour. I’m fine now, I’m just worried about getting a lawyer The other party is well–off and they have political connections. The lawyer they hired event
specializes in criminal cases
Calista knew Yara didn’t want her to be worried. It had been five days and she still hadn’t spoken a word
If it wasn’t for her who really couldn’t hold it in any longer, she wouldn’t have gone to Calista’s apartment
late at night.
“Briefly tell me what happened. I’ll come over now,” said Calista as she glanced at the door. “But I’ll be a
What happened was pretty simple. Jamie’s girlfriend was bullied so he went to confront the bullies. But
the bullies ganged up against him and beat him up.
Not only that, they even harassed his girlfriend right in front of him. He couldn’t control his emotions and acted out of impulse. He ended up stabbing the bully.
Calista opened the door and met eyes with Lucian, who was smoking in the corridor. He subconsciously put off his cigarette, and he finally realized she wasn’t dressed in pajamas. He frowned.
“It’s so late now. Where are you going?”
“If I were to hire Timothy as my lawyer, what conditions are needed?”
Money shouldn’t be an issue, since there’s no way that Yara’s family couldn’t afford him.
