I couldn’t avoid it.
I closed the door, tidied up my clothes and went to my study.
I went into the study and saw Sean sitting there. He wore a pure white sweater instead of a coat.
To be honest, I rarely saw Sean in pure white.
In this way, he looked less aggressive and more gentle.
When I went in, James pointed to the empty sofa and said, “sit down.”
I sat on the sofa, speechless.
James took a sip of tea and sighed, “it’s ridiculous.”
I looked up at him. Sean and I didn’t talk.
James looked at me and then Sean. “What are you going to do next?”
I didn’t know what James meant by that.
So I didn’t talk.
Sean said first, “I’ll bring back what belongs to me.”
I looked at him and was in a mixed mood.
James looked at me and asked, “what about you? What are you going to do? Do you want to spend your life with Ming or what?”
“I…” James’s question made me hesitate.
If I could choose, I would definitely choose Sean.
But now it seemed that I was not allowed to choose.
“I want you to live with Ming for the rest of your life.” James first said, “although Ming has many bad habits, I can feel that he really loves you and wants to live with you all his life.”
He really loved me? He wanted to spend his life with me?
In fact, I was sneering at this. If he really loved me, how could he and Erin do that.
But I wouldn’t tell James about it, let alone Sean.
I looked down and didn’t talk.
“Grandpa, you know Uncle. You’re pushing her into the fire.” Sean interrupted, “sooner or later, he’ll go to jail.”
“Nonsense!” James stared at him. “Take care of yourself. Don’t care what he does. You were going to marry Cindy and nobody forced you, so now don’t blame anyone! Everything is your choice!”
“No one forced me? Yes, no one forced me, but the choices I made were all forced. You let me choose to marry Cindy or choose her to be safe. You already knew what I was going to choose.”
Sean’s legs overlapped.
He put one hand on James’s desk and clenched it.
He seemed to be holding on to something.
“It’s all over.” James leaned back. “Now that it’s settled, you should look ahead. She’s not the only woman in the world…”
“But I want her.”
Sean interrupted James directly.
James looked at him and slapped the table. “You’re going to piss me off, aren’t you?”
“No, I will find the evidence. I’ll put him in jail!” Sean sat there and took back his hand. He put his hands on his chest and looked at James.
His eyes were firm.
James looked at him and was very angry. “Are you going to rebel?”
“No, I didn’t care about him at all, but he took my girlfriend.” Sean continued.
“Don’t you listen to me? As long as you dare to investigate, you are no longer my grandson!”
James’s hand on the edge of the table was shaking.
I couldn’t understand what they were talking about, but I knew I couldn’t speak. I immediately got up and went to James’s side, “Grandpa Jessop, don’t get angry. Let’s have a good chat.”
“Grandpa, you owe him, but you gave him money and helped him many times. Now he has great ability and no flaws, but without you, he would have been in prison now! You don’t owe him and his mother any more!”
The more Sean said, the more excited he got!
“Stop.” I advised Sean.
When I held James, I thought he was pale. He must be very angry. I was afraid if Sean continued to stimulate him, he would…
Sean listened to me and opened his mouth. He wanted to say something, but at last he just said, “I’m sorry.”
James looked at him seriously. “Anyway, I won’t let him go to jail while I’m alive. If I die, I can’t control you.”
James got up trembling when he finished.
Usually he walked on his own, but this time he picked up a crutch and walked out of the study slowly.
I wanted to help him, but James waved, “no, I’m not old enough to need help.”
With that, he left.
James left, and Sean and I were alone in the study.
I didn’t want to communicate with him much, but thinking of their conversation just now, I looked at him, “what did Ming do?”
What did he do that would put him in jail?
Sean looked at me and hesitated and said, “I can’t tell you, but I’ll find the evidence as soon as possible and put him in jail.”
I looked at Sean with complicated eyes.
His eyes were cold and firm. I was sure he wouldn’t say so I didn’t force him.
What was more, I also knew that what they wanted to do was not something I could control.
All I could do was protect Lester from harm.
I nodded softly, “OK, I’ll go to Lester.”
I wanted to open the door, but Sean pulled me from behind. I didn’t notice and fell back.
The next second, I sat right in Sean’s arms!
I blushed. “No way.”
I struggled and wanted to stand up.
But Sean held me in his arms and put his hands around my waist and said, “turn around.”
“No, I’m leaving.”
I closed my eyes and thought about Ming’s words and my identity.
Although I wanted to be closer to Sean, I couldn’t.
I was Ming’s fiancee. No matter what reason, identity or reason, the result was that I was Ming’s fiancee.
I couldn’t force him, but I couldn’t do that.
I made up my mind and stood up, but Sean overwhelmed me directly. I was lying on the chair!
He leaned over and kissed me on the lips.
I could feel the faint smell of alcohol.
