Chapter 92 Her Stomach Hurt
Lucian watched Calista intently and asked, “Why don’t you tell me what’s on my mind?”
She rolled her eyes, thinking, “God knows what you’re up to.”
They locked eyes for a few seconds before Calista took her leave.
As she passed by Lucian, he whispered, “You don’t have to go through all this trouble just to make that woman apologize to you.”
Calista turned to look at him. He looked at her gloatingly as if he was expecting her to beg him, and he would step in.
She glared at him and sneered, “In your dreams.”
Lucian glared at her. He felt so furious he wanted to tear her apart.
“Did your manners go down the drain?”
Lucian wore a dark outfit today, making him look even more intimidating. Everyone had crouched against the wall in fear. Only Calista dared to face him head–on.
“Only because you’re acting like trash,” She retorted.
With that, she ignored him and walked straight toward the hall.
Amanda looked at Lucian, who was still standing there. She was confused by his intentions and wondered if he was trying to defend Calista.
She couldn’t understand why since she was the one that got hit!
Although she said she would make Calista kneel and beg for mercy, Lucian had kicked down the door before she could make a move.
Amanda approached him cautiously and asked politely, “Mr. Northwood, do you know Calista?”
Anyone could tell they had a complex relationship from their interaction earlier.
She thought Lucian would ignore her, but he glanced at her and said casually, “She’s my wife.”
Amanda was utterly taken aback. She could not believe that Calista was Lucian’s wife. She
would’ve revealed her identity long ago if she were truly Mrs. Northwood.
If that were the case, Calista would even be able to cancel Sharon’s engagement with the Beckett family easily, not to mention making her give a public apology.
However, since Calista did not mention a word, Lucian must be lying. Amanda was sure that must be the case.
But the fact that Lucian was willing to lie for Calista proved that she must mean something to him. Even if they weren’t married, he cared for her.
Amanda’s legs gave way as she slumped to the ground, her face pale. She didn’t know how long it had been until someone helped her up from the ground.
“Amanda, are you okay?”
“Not! I’m going to be ruined by Sharon!” She shrieked.
Her voice was filled with regret. When she looked up, she realized the restroom entrance was empty.
She had yet to return to her senses and asked in a daze, “Where’s Mr. Northwood?”
Otherwise, they wouldn’t dare come and help her!
After exiting the restroom, Calista headed to the main hall. She didn’t blend into the crowd.
Instead, she chose to sit on the sofa in the lounge area. She propped up her chin and watched Sharon, who looked untroubled not far away.
Theodore was bringing Sharon around to thank the guests for coming. Her face was brimming
with pride, having married into a wealthy family.
Initially, Sharon managed to maintain a smiling façade. However, she soon became uncomfortable
under Calista’s gaze.
She exchanged a few words with Theodore and walked towards the lounge area.
“What exactly are you trying to do?”
She still wore a smile, but anger burned behind her eyes.
“You know exactly what I want. I’ll give you another five minutes. If you don’t do as I say, I’ll have
Calista frowned impatiently. Sharon glared at her in anger.
“Don’t you dare!”
“Try me. I planned to let bygones be bygones between us, but you insisted on bringing up all those dreadful memories. Now that my mood is ruined I can’t let you enjoy your engagement, could I?”
Calista’s expression turned cold. Sharon glanced toward the restroom, waiting for Amanda to emerge.
Didn’t she ask her to destroy the video? She couldn’t even handle such a simple task. She was utterly useless!
“I’ll pay you. I’ll buy the video from you. Name your price.”
She gritted her teeth in frustration. She couldn’t apologize. Not only would that be a blow to her pride, but it would also be a humiliation for the Beckett family.
If that happened, the engagement would be ruined. She had put so much effort into reaching this point; she couldn’t let it all fall apart!
Regret gnawed at her. If she had known earlier that Calista was a lunatic, she would have endured a little longer.
“You have four more minutes.”
As tension built up, the host had already begun speaking joyfully, offering blessings.
“Now, let us welcome our soon–to–be newlyweds as they enter for the opening dance.”
Theodore walked toward Sharon and extended his hand,
Sharon struggled to suppress her emotions and forced a smile.
She intended to take a gamble, betting that Calista was merely bluffing. She dated her ex-
boyfriend in university.
Back then, although she and Calista were at odds, they had gone their separate ways after
Who would keep an incriminating video of an old adversary for three years?
Calista approached with a smile.
“Mr. Beckett, I’d like to show you something.”
Her voice was calm, and she had a smile. She looked enchanting with her stunning looks and mesmerizing smile.
Theodore hesitated for a moment. He was caught off guard, so he didn’t immediately refuse.
The music for the dance had already started, and the spotlight, along with everyone’s gaze, shifted to them. Naturally, they also noticed the strange undertone among the three individuals.
Was she trying to stop the engagement? Between Sharon and Calista, it was clear that Calista held the upper hand. Nervously, Sharon held onto Theodore’s hand.
“Theodore, don’t listen to her…”
Theodore spoke at the same time, “What is it?”
Calista took out her phone, inching closer so he could get a better view. The odd tension in the air weighed on Amanda, and she had to keep her voice down.
She would have snatched away the phone from Calista if she hadn’t been afraid of raising suspicion in Theodore.
Before Calista could move, a hand pulled her away from Theodore. This sudden turn of events
They turned their heads to see Lucian standing behind Calista.
His presence was undeniably chilling; combined with his status and position, no one dared to
No one knew what he was about to do, and nobody dared to speak up in such a tense moment.
Calista felt uncomfortable being scrutinized by so many people.
Frowning, she tried to retrieve her hand from Lucian’s grasp discreetly, but before she could, he
pried her fingers apart and intertwined his hands with hers forcefully.
