In Love, Never Say Never Chapter 1762
My hatred seemed to pain Nathaniel, and his face fell instantly. Pointing his finger at me, he warned, “This is Ashton’s choice. The person you should hate is him, not me.”
Is he infuriated?
Looking at him calmly, I retorted, “No matter what he did, I couldn’t bring myself to hate him. What can you do about that? Perhaps the person who should accept the reality is you. You can’t make me fall out of love with him. As for you, even if you don’t do anything, people will still hate you and despise you. No one will ever love you and be willing to sacrifice for you.”
“Who said so?” Out of the blue, Nora stood up, trying to restore Nathaniel’s pride. She lifted her chin, looking like a proud peacock showing off its feathers. “As long as he needs it, I will die for him at any time.”
What a romantic confession, but unfortunately, it was ostentatious. She forgot that I was an old friend who knew of her obsession with Armond. “I believe in you. I’m not sure if I should tell you this, but I’ve identified the whereabouts of your son.”
In an instant, the noble and elegant look on her face disappeared. Turning into a loving mother, she hurriedly queried, “When? Where is he? Are you sure he’s my son?”
I did not answer and stared at her with a smile on my face.
Humans tend to show their truest feelings subconsciously. Even though Nora could sacrifice her life for Nathaniel, the people she cared about the most were still Armond and her son. There was no place for Nathaniel in her heart at all.
Soon, Nora realized that her lies had been exposed and she sat back embarrassedly. Lowering her head, she apologized to Nathaniel, “I’m sorry.”
However, Nathaniel was deep in thought and he ignored her.
What could be more exciting than making a powerful and wicked man speechless?
I was thrilled and confident that my words had struck a chord with him, so I decided to take advantage of the situation to tear down his facade. “You’re looking down on Ashton because you’re jealous of him. He’s surrounded by people who love him, but you aren’t. That’s why you want to destroy him. However, that isn’t all. You want to destroy him, but at the same time, you want to take over his place and become another Ashton Fuller. Nora’s face is the best evidence.”
Nathaniel’s eyes flickered under the glasses. Gritting his teeth, he ordered, “Watch your woman.”
As if he was beguiled, Ashton reached out and pulled my hand. “Sit down.”
Shoving him aside, I continued, “Why? Can’t listen to it anymore? The only reason you wanted Ashton to disappear from this world is that you knew that no matter how hard you try, you will never be better than him and you’re afraid to admit it.”
Nathaniel was enraged by my words. He swept the glass in front of him to the ground and glass shards strewn all over the floor.
I swallowed a lump in my throat and took a deep breath, maintaining a calm appearance.
I knew that jealousy and self-esteem had burnt away the veil of his confidence. His ego was slowly leading him into my trap.
Silence ensued in the room, and the atmosphere was tense. I pressed my lips tightly and stopped provoking him.
It was the same as fishing. After the fish bit the bait, one should not reel in the line while the fish was swimming away, as the line would snap if it was tight. Instead, one should relax and wait until the fish stopped struggling.
Later on, Emery told me that it was the first time she felt that a minute seemed to last forever.
A minute later, Nathaniel seemed to have regained his composure. Lifting his head, he said dissatisfiedly, “Do you think that this will irritate me and make me lose control like those incompetent men? You’re too naive. I’m perfect, so I don’t have such flaws. Similarly, everyone knows that I’ve defeated Ashton, and I’m better than him. This is an indisputable fact.”
