Bella didn’t know where he was taking her. After all, it was impossible to stop James Grayson.
“How long does it take?” Bella asked and looked out of the window at the dark night.
“Approximately two hours.” James Grayson replied.
“Call me when we arrive.” She leaned against the seat and closed her eyes.
James Grayson took off his coat and put it on her.
Bella did not fall asleep. She smelled the light smell of tobacco of his clothes.
It seemed he was smoking downstairs.
She didn’t like the smell of tobacco. She opened her eyes and looked at him.
More than three years later, James Grayson was more mature, introverted, and didn’t like to talk. However, he still gave people a sense of peace. Maybe, these were the characteristics of soldiers.
“Don’t smoke from now on. It’s really bad for your health.” Bella said softly.
“I didn’t like smoking very much before. Over the past three years, I often lose sleep. I’m not in a good state. I have a lot of work pressure. So I started smoking more. Now I have some habitual smoking. You can supervise me later.” James Grayson said solemnly.
Bella turned her face and looked at the window without speaking. The window reflected her and James Grayson’s shadow.
“Chief, can I take a psychological test?” Bella asked softly.
“Well, you can.”
“If you are watching a horror movie, where do you think ghosts might appear? 1. Elevator, 2. Toilet, 3. Under the table, 4. Lockers.” Bella asked and looked at James Grayson.
“I never watched ghost movies and I don’t believe there are ghosts in the world.” James Grayson said in a deep voice.
“Then I’ll change the question. One day when you are walking on the road, you see a person almost hit. You hope this person is, 1. Woman, 2. Man, 3. Child, 4. Old people. Choose one.” Bella was a little angry. He wasn’t cooperating at all.
“What does it have to do with me if that person is hit or not?” James Grayson didn’t understand.
Bella just didn’t want to talk to him again.
James Grayson twisted his eyebrows. “If I have to choose, then the answer is, man.”
Bella was clear, she nodded, “I see.”
“Can you let your client know the result?” James Grayson asked.
“The people who choose option 2 are resolute, fast-paced, straightforward, rational, but also afraid of trouble. They are not easily attracted by the temptation of the outside world. They also have their own goals and ideas. They are calm, they are… The best choice to be a spouse.” Bella didn’t want to say the last sentence.
James Grayson’s smile was very shallow and it was not easy to find out, “do you know why I chose B?”
“The old man is weak and old, even if he was just hit, his blood pressure will be too high to bear.
The child is too small to be frightened.
Women are trouble makers.
Men are quick, as long as they avoid unnecessary troubles they can handle this situation very easily.” James Grayson analyzed.
“I think you’re biased against women. How can women be trouble makers?” Bella asked.
“If the woman got hit, she would call her boyfriend and cry. Maybe, she would also go to the driver to fight.” James Grayson said.
“James Grayson, are you afraid of trouble, so you didn’t find a girlfriend for so many years?” Bella interrupted, “do you think if it was me, I would call you to cry or fight with the driver?”
“That’s why I believe that I used to like you.” James Grayson said directly and looked at Bella with his burning eyes.
Bella’s heart was shaking, especially his eyes made her uncomfortable. “You are driving, look ahead.”
“Okay,” James Grayson replied.
Bella lowered her eyes.
Women are strange. They know that there is another woman in man’s hearts, but they continue to tempt, trying to prove that they have their own hearts.
Because of this hope, they are soft-hearted, they surrender, always take a chance, feel that they can replace the position of that woman.
But the truth is…
In this world, the most difficult thing to control is people’s hearts. If they are too close, they will be rejected by human nature. If they are too far away, they will be ignored by nature.
Staying at a certain distance, not too close and not too far is the best.
However, no one can grasp the good distance.
Bella felt sad, and her eyes were still rustling. She didn’t want to cry in front of James Grayson. She forced herself to not overthink.
Sometimes it is very painful to see through.
Maybe foolishness, ignorance, and self-righteousness are the best blessings. For example, children think less, think incomprehensibly and are forgetful. That’s why they are the happiest ones.
Their car reached James Grayson’s military region.
When the soldiers saw James Grayson’s car, they saluted one after another. However, when the second pass came, someone came to check it.
This was James Grayson’s strict requirements for his military region. After the inspection, the soldiers saluted again.
Bella has been to his military area more than three years ago. Now, compared with the past, it has been changed a lot. There were several more buildings.
However, James Grayson lived in the same place as before.
She followed him to the basement.
Bella thought about the secret chamber that Anna Wilson has mentioned. At that time, she didn’t show but she felt very sad.
At this time, the closer she was to the door, the more she wanted to go back.
“Why you bring me here?” Bella stopped.
James Grayson didn’t force her. He just opened the door of the secret chamber.
Bella subconsciously walked in and looked at her photos in the rooms.
She surprisingly looked at James Grayson.
She was too nervous and her hands were shaking. James Grayson held her hand and went in.
All the pictures in the secret room were her photos. Some of them were picked up from the blog account that she didn’t use for a long time. Some of them were secretly taken by him.
“I hung these pictures in the afternoon.” James Grayson murmured and took a red jewelry box from the table.
Bella looked at the jewelry box and looked at James Grayson. He looked at her deeply, as always, seriously, but his eyes reflected some pain.
“Three years ago, I got up from the bed in the operating room with many thoughts. My mind was burning. It’s like I was stuck at a time long ago when I carried a mission.
In that mission, all the people I took died, only one spy survived, and my girlfriend Scarlett Evan also died.
I don’t remember you at all.
From that day on, I started dreaming that a girl is crying, she was shouting and calling…
James Grayson, where are you?
I thought that girl was Scarlett Evan. I have no impression of you. I’m sorry I forgot you.” James Grayson explained.
Bella stopped looking at him and looked down. The memory of the past was too painful that she couldn’t stop her tears.
“Until I met you more than three years ago. I felt inexplicably familiar with you, I went to inquire about you, everything in your past seems to have been deliberately erased, I also went to your school to see you many times, as time goes on, I feel that the girl crying for me is you. Bella.”
James Grayson opened the jewelry box. There was a diamond ring. “I love you, Bella, please marry me. From now on, I am your responsibility.”
