A Beauty With Multiple Masks Chapter 898
Arielle finally understood what was going on.
Jared pleaded, “Boss, only you are able to talk some sense into him right now. Please explain it all to Harvey.”
Arielle nodded. “I’ll try my best.”
Then, she headed into the ward.
Just after heading into the ward, she heard Harrison scolding Harvey, “So what if they’re married? They could just get a divorce any time! Do you know that more people are getting divorced than people getting married in Jadeborough? Do you still think those people are lining up at City Hall to get married? They’re all there to get a divorce, okay? Refusing treatment and giving up on yourself are not wise moves, my son. If I were you, I would focus on healing and pursuing Arielle afterward!”
Arielle’s lips twitched after listening to the man.
She had never seen an elderly talk in that way before.
Abashed, Jared reminded Harrison, “Grandpa, Harvey, Boss- I mean, Arielle, is here.”
Jared, who was on the bed, stiffened his body and closed his eyes. He did not wish to see Arielle.
Harrison stood up and was seemingly unfazed they possibly overheard him. He greeted Arielle with a broad smile and said, “Ms. Moore, you’re here! Come and
have a seat. Harvey’s been waiting for you.”
Arielle let out a dry cough and made her way to Harvey’s side. “Get up and drink this.”
Harvey did not budge and appeared as if he had really fallen asleep.
“Drop the act,” Arielle exposed him. “I’ve already been here for quite a while and even witnessed you chasing a nurse out of the ward just now.”
Harvey knew there was no point to keep pretending and opened his eyes to look at her. “Why are you here?”
She showed him the herb that she brought over and said, “This.”
“I’m not going to drink that.” Harvey closed his eyes again and said impassively, “Just leave.”
Harrison grew exasperated.
“Hey, you little”
Arielle interrupted him and said, “Please don’t scold him. I fully understand if you’re reluctant to see me. So, I’m going to leave this here and be on my way.”
Harrison was taken aback. “You’re leaving already?”
Arielle muttered an affirmative response. “He doesn’t want to see me. It’s better for me to get out of his sight.”
Harvey’s lids moved before his eyes sprung open. “Grandpa, Jared, could you guys give us a moment? I want to speak to her in private.”
Harrison was about to say something when Jared dragged him out of the ward and closed the door behind them.
Arielle and Harvey were left alone in the ward.
Harvey did not speak for some time, and Arielle waited patiently aside for him to speak first.
In the end, Harvey finally parted his lips.
“Jared told me you’re married to Vinson?”
“Yes.” Arielle nodded.
Harvey pursed his lips and turned pale.
“When? Was it before or after I became a spy?”
Harvey furrowed his brows. “W-Why didn’t you guys let me know? Are you guys taking me for a fool?”
There was a subtle change in Arielle’s expression. She could understand how Harvey felt right then.
She would have stopped Harvey if she had known that he would risk his life to become a spy for her.
However, it was already too late. Arielle knew there was no turning back time. She explained patiently, “Both Vinson and I had never taken you as a fool. We did not exclusively keep it from you as everyone had no idea that we were married either. Anyway, Harvey, I want to apologize. I know I should have explained everything much earlier to you, but I really take you as only a friend. You should know that feelings can’t be forced.”
“Forced?” Harvey let out a dry chuckle. “Do you feel burdened by my feelings?”
