This Time, I Will Get My Divorce, Mr Chapter 605
Liking Her to the Point of the Unimaginable
“Is that too much?” Lowering his gaze, Toby had a gentle expression as he looked at Sonia. “I don’t think what she did was overboard. I even think that she was too lenient. If it were me, I would’ve smashed the person’s car who intentionally parked in my spot. Also, I would’ve blacklisted that person in the industry, so nobody would dare hire them.”
Sonia chuckled at his words.
Conversely, Jessica was left stunned and wide-eyed with disbelief. “Mr. Fuller, you…”
“What about me?” Toby raised his gaze, his eyes not holding even a shred of emotion as he looked at her.
Seeing his gaze made Jessica cower a bit, and she gulped before continuing, “Didn’t you stand up for me just now? Why are you now…”
Before she could finish her words, Sonia interrupted her with a laugh.
Tilting her head, Sonia looked at Toby. “Were you really standing up for her just now?”
Toby’s mouth twitched before he replied, “Do you think that’s possible?”
“Of course not.” Shaking her head, she murmured, “I’m just curious as to what you did that made her imply that you were.”
Pursing his lips, he also wondered out loud, “I’d like to know too.”
With that, Toby faced Jessica again. “You said I was standing up for you? What proof do you have?”
“You asked me what she did to me just now, didn’t you?” Jessica replied with eyes full of hope.
Failing to hold it back in, Sonia burst out into laughter yet again.
Feeling rather speechless, Toby said, “Wait—you thought that I was standing up for you just because I asked you this?”
Jessica bit her lip as she countered, “Wasn’t that it?”
With a dark expression, Toby replied bluntly, “You’re reading too much into it, and even if I really wanted to stand up for someone in this situation, that someone would be Sonia. Who are you to butt in?”
Her face turning pale, Jessica felt as if she just received a heavy blow as she staggered backward, mouthing, “Mr. Fuller, y-you…”
Jessica stated it in a way that made Toby sound like a playboy who broke her heart. When Sonia and Toby looked on, they felt absolutely speechless.
Holding onto his arm, Sonia said, “Enough of this. Let’s go. Just ignore her—she’s completely mental. If you do, she’ll just sink further into her delusions.”
Looking at the hand placed on his arm, Toby did not bother to hide his inner glee as he chuckled and murmured, “Alright.”
Turning around, they were about to leave.
However, Jessica, who finally saw Toby again, was not going to let them leave that easily.
Clenching her teeth, she chased after them until finally, she stopped in front of them, halting them from advancing. “Wait, Mr. Fuller!”
Annoyed, Toby peered at her. “What now?”
“Mr. Fuller, are you in love with my sister?” Jessica said this as she looked at Sonia with a flash of jealousy in her eyes.
Catching that flash of envy in the other woman’s eyes, a speechless Sonia felt a tinge of discomfort inside. And so, she proceeded to pinch Toby’s elbow.
Noticing the pain, Toby raised his eyebrows as he looked at the woman beside him. “What is it?”
After shooting him a knowing look, Sonia turned her head away, ignoring him.
Instantly, Toby knew what she was trying to say from her obvious gaze and he smiled gently. Just as he was going to speak, someone’s phone rang—turned out it was Sonia’s.
Taking out her phone, Sonia smiled upon noticing who the caller was. “I need to take this. It’s from my grandpa. It’s probably regarding the shareholders’ meeting today. Uncle King and him know each other, so maybe he called my grandpa beforehand.”
“Go on then.” Toby nodded subtly.
Holding her phone, Sonia walked off to the side.
After watching her walk away, Toby then finally turned around to face Jessica once again, his expression emotionless. “I think I have already stated my position quite clearly, so why ask something that you already know the answer to?”
Hearing Toby admit his love for Sonia made the jealousy inside Jessica increase. It even seeped out as it showed on her contorted expression. “No, Mr. Fuller! You cannot fall in love with my sister!”
With tightly knitted eyebrows and a dark expression, Toby stared daggers at Jessica as he questioned, “Oh? And why can’t I do that?”
The words left him in a flat and soft tone.
Yet, it did nothing to disguise the anger.
Knowing that he was angry, Jessica was utterly afraid, particularly when she started into the void that was his eyes.
Clenching her fists, she resisted that surge of fear and opened her mouth to mutter “B-Because I don’t think she deserves you, Mr. Fuller. My sister was married, you know. However it was not out of love for him, rather out of the love for her ex-husband’s family’s wealth and power, which was why she devised a plan to trick him into marrying her.”
Suddenly, as if finding something hard to say, Jessica hesitated for a few seconds before continuing, “And at that time, her ex had a girlfriend, which meant that for money, my sister forcefully ripped the couple apart. Mr. Fuller, the reason I’m telling you all this is because she’s not the good woman that you think she is. I don’t think she truly loves you either. In her eyes, there is only profit and loss.”
Scoffing, Toby asked with a thunderous expression, “So what you’re implying is that Sonia is actually after my money?”
Seeing Toby acting like this made Jessica think that she was starting to convince him with her words. Eyes bright, she nodded profusely. “Yes, Mr. Fuller. I know that I’m being mean toward my sister right now, but I can’t help it as I don’t want any more victims to fall for her schemes. I can only tell you her past as I think she’s a very ruthless person. Mr. Fuller, I would advise that you stay well away from my sister, as she really is undeserving of your love. I don’t want to see you turn out like my ex-brother-in-law, another victim of her schemes.”
“Is that so? Coincidentally, I’m your sister’s ex-husband, you know?” Toby had a slight smirk as he uttered this.
Meanwhile, Jessica, who was still trying to persuade him, was left completely shocked the instant she heard his words. “What? You’re Sonia’s ex-husband?”
“Who did you think I was?” Toby countered with an almighty look, as if he was looking down upon an ant.
All color draining from her face, Jessica shook her head. “That’s impossible! This can’t be true! If you really are her ex, why do you still love her? I clearly heard you say that you loved someone else, and it was not Sonia.”
“I do have someone that I love, and it is Sonia. From the beginning to the end, my feelings have not, and will never change.” Toby said this as he looked at Sonia, who was standing a distance away, with a gentle gaze.
Right after, he switched his gaze toward Jessica. Only this time, it was filled with contempt as he spoke. “I know that at the end of the day, you only want to create a divide between me and Sonia, but reassured that you have failed. Let’s put aside whether Sonia is with me due to my money and power. Even if she is, I’m honored that she chose me because of these reasons.”
Upon hearing that, Jessica shouted, “Y-You’ve lost it! You’re totally insane!”
Meanwhile, Sonia, who was standing at a distance, looked over upon hearing someone scream.
What’s going on? Why is Jessica screaming like a madwoman? What did Toby say to her?
With her hands at her side forming into fists, Jessica started to tremble as her emotions went haywire. “Do you really love Sonia that much?”
He even accepted the fact that she might be eyeing him for his money! Don’t rich people dislike gold diggers the most? Sure, they might play around with a gold digger for the hell of it, but they would never put their heart into it. Why is it when it comes to this man, everything is turned upside down?
Toby saw Sonia hanging up, and his remaining interest in humoring the woman in front of him disappeared.
Sticking his hands into his pocket, he said coldly as he walked toward Sonia, “My love for her is so deep you can’t even start to fathom its depth.”
Turning around with a horrified expression, Jessica had a gaze that contained an inexplicable amount of envy and confusion as she looked at the couple who was together again.
For the life of her, she could not understand the divide that stood between her and Sonia.
Whatever Jessica wanted, she had to work herself to the bone to obtain it.
Yet, that was not the case for Sonia. Just by standing there, there would be someone willing to give her her heart’s desires.
They were both sisters, so why was God playing favorites?
