Chapter 89 This Is The Only Way I Can Punish You
Selena placed a hand over her chest as she got up. She felt overwhelmed by the information, to the point that she had lost her appetite. Calista moved to help her, but she turned her down.
“I need some quiet. Finish your food, then leave. I don’t know how many more surprises like this my heart can withstand.”
Then, she waved a hand at Macy.
“Give them the invitation.”
Macy picked up an invitation from the coffee table and handed it to Calista before going to the kitchen.
Technically, Lucian was her employer, so she should’ve given the invitation to him instead of Calista, but his cold smile terrified her.
Calista opened the invitation. It was an invitation to an engagement party. When she saw the bride’s name, she raised an eyebrow. It was one of her classmates from university.
Lucian had been looking at her, so when he saw her expression, he asked, “Someone you don’t like?”
“Not really. We weren’t close.”
It was the kind of natural enmity between the top of the class and the runner–up.
“You seem to have enemies everywhere. Even a random invitation could be from someone you don’t get along with,” Lucian said mockingly.
“I’m not surprised, though. Only Yara’s thick–headed enough to put up with you. I doubt any other woman would want to be your friend willingly.”
Calista suspected that he was taking out his anger on her because of what Selena had said about
Lily earlier. Since he couldn’t do anything to Selena, he targeted her instead.
She scoffed in disdain. Lucian was not only a cheating bastard, he was also a petty one.
Anyway, she’d already decided to let him get together with Lily, so she couldn’t be bothered to
argue with him.
“Now that we don’t need to hide this from Mom anymore, we can proceed with finalizing the divorce.”
Lucian’s smile was dry.
“Didn’t you hear what I said just now? I brought you home so that you can explain the matter to Mom, not make her angry. You didn’t keep your end of the deal. What makes you think you can make demands of me?”
“Why do you need me to explain your wrongdoings on your behalf?” Calista demanded, pointing at
She was trembling with anger.
“Lucian, are you a man?”
Lucian leaned back and smiled at her.
“You can use your hand to find out.”
Calista lowered her eyes and glanced at the cup of tea before her, then looked back up at Lucian.
“I shouldn’t lower myself to your standards.”
Then, she picked up the tea and flung it in his face.
The warm liquid dripped from his eyelashes, past his nose, and down to his chin.
Lucian looked like a mess, but his expression did not change. He did not shift from his position, barely sparing her a glance. Calista turned away.
Macy, call the driver.”
She was pissed off. Before she could go far, she heard the chair scrape against the ground harshly Lucian grabbed her wrist.
He was still soaked as he wrapped his other hand around her waist and leaned closer to her. His breath brushed against her cheek.
“Clean this up”
Calista looked up at him obstinately and said slowly, “You wish.”
She thought that Lucian would get angry at that. Who wouldn’t if they had a cup of tea thrown in
But he just laughed softly and said, “Macy, leave us
Macy left quickly without clearing the table.
“I’m going to say this again. Clean this up,” Lucian said
“And I’ll answer you again,” Calista said, not backing down. “You wish!”
She turned away to avoid looking into his eyes.
“Get away from me. I might not be able to hold back from slapping you.”
“You can try.”
Calista had no qualms about that. She raised her hand to slap him. After all, they were already on bad terms, so she wouldn’t lose out on anything by slapping him.
Before her hand could make contact, Lucian stopped her. He grabbed her by the waist and kissed her.
The plot twist came too suddenly, Calista widened her eyes in shock. It took her a few seconds to snap back into her senses. She bit Lucian’s lip furiously, drawing blood almost immediately,
Lucian hissed in pain and let go of her. He ran a thumb over his lip and examined the blood on his
“Are you a dog?”
Calista spat on the ground.
“Not as animalistic as you are.
“You’re a woman, so I can’t hit you. This is the only way I can punish you.”
Lucian let go of her His face was already dry.
“If you don’t want this to happen again, do as you’re told.”
Calista was speechless Lucian was infuriating! She turned and left the house. This time, Lucian
did not stop her. He did not follow her either
Things had escalated too rapidly eather, so Macy hadn’t had the chance to call Jonathan, Calista
did not want to go back and face Lucian again so she decided to walk
She knew there was a bus stop about a mile away She should be able to catch the last bus
She did not manage to get fat when a black Bentley putted up beside her Jonathan got out of the
car and opened the door to the passenger side for her
“Madam Mh Northwood asked me to send you home”
Calista did not atque with him. She got into the cat
Thanks to Lucian, she hadn’t managed to have dinner eatliet, so she was hungry and tired It
would be a shame to turn down a free car ride
The engagement party was on Saturday Calista did not attend with Lucian, she received her
invitation the day after she saw the Northwoods invitation
After graduation, she hadn’t had much contact with her classmates Sharon Lawson, the bride,
didn’t even have any way to contact her, given their rivalry She had gotten the invitation through
a mutual friend
The mend told her that Shaton had invited all of then classmates At the venue, Calista found that
it was more than that, more than a third of then coursemates were present
Sharon stood at the entrance with her fiance, welcoming quests. When she saw Calista, she looked
“Calista Everhart! I thought you wouldn’t come
“Why wouldn’t I come? You invited me.”
It was Sharon who had spread the rumor that she had paid someone to buy her graduation project
Even though there was no evidence for this and Sharon publicly apologized for the rumor, the
damage to her reputation was irreversible
“I thought you were married.” Sharon said. “Where’s your husband? Is he mad that you’ve made a
cuckold of him by sleeping around with multiple men while being married to him? Is he going to
The engagement party was about to start. The entrance was empty That was why Sharon was bold enough to say this.
Calista smiled widely
“Speaking of cuckolds, does your fiance want a list of your ex–boyfriends? He can compare his cuckolding status with my husband.”
