This Time, I Will Get My Divorce, Mr Chapter 791
We won’t be getting anywhere like this. His concern is never whether Tyler is his brother or he is still a teenager; instead, Toby’s concern lies in the gender of the person that I’m in touch with—he won’t be happy as long as that person is a man. His possessiveness is pissing me off, but it is hilarious at the same time.
Sonia held her forehead helplessly. “Alright, alright. I will try to not pick up his call so often, okay?” Anyway, Tyler would be coming back soon, so she reckoned that he wouldn’t have the chance to call her often since they would be speaking face to face. She wouldn’t say this out loud to Toby, of course.
Upon hearing that Sonia agreed to his request, Toby curled up his thin lips and his mood instantly lifted.
Sonia put down the spoon and said, “Speaking of which, Tyler has become more mature. He even apologized to me just now.”
“Why did he apologize to you all of a sudden?” Her words instantly put a frown between his brows and his expression tensed. “Did he bully you during the call just now?”
Sonia was stunned and she was unable to understand how he arrived at this conclusion. Although it was funny, she felt warm inwardly due to his concern.
“No.” She shook her head. “He apologized for his past behaviors.”
Toby’s overreaction subsided a little and he gradually calmed down when he heard that. With his chin slightly lifted, he responded, “That’s something he should do. My mother… I mean Jean, should apologize too, but I’m sorry that I can’t force her to apologize to you. She was the one who raised me, so I’ll bear the responsibility by apologizing to you on her behalf.”
“There’s no need for that.” Sonia waved her hand. “Both of you are different individuals, so you don’t need to bear the responsibility on her behalf. Besides, I’m willing to let this slide for your sake since I don’t need her apology anyway. She doesn’t need to apologize to me since it won’t come from the bottom of her heart even if she does. So, there’s no need for her to do anything. Anyway, I won’t be living under the same roof as her. Let’s just live our own lives and not meddle with each other’s lives.”
Toby chuckled in response. “Of course. I said that the unit at the Skylark Tower will be our future home. Although it is not as huge or luxurious as the Fuller Residence, it’s still sufficient to be a home that belongs to only the two of us. What do you think?”
In fact, a smaller house felt more like a home. If the house was too huge, it would sometimes feel empty and cold even if two people who loved each other lived in it.
“I’m fine as long as we don’t live with Jean,” Sonia replied with slightly flushed ears.
Upon seeing that, Toby stroked her hair. “Great. Okay, time to dig in. The food is getting cold.”
Sonia hummed in agreement. The next second, something seemed to cross her mind when she looked at him in concern as she asked, “Have you eaten?”
He nodded. “Yes. I had Tom send me food. I initially wanted to wake you up so that you could join me, but I didn’t after giving it some thought. Hence, I left you some food.”
“Why didn’t you wake me up at that time?” asked Sonia in puzzlement while she ate.
A gleam flashed across Toby’s eyes. He leaned back, the back of his head resting against the couch as he stared at her with a gaze so passionate and intense it was as though he was about to devour her. Then, he flirted with her in a husky voice, “Because I want you to have a good rest so that you won’t be able to fall asleep at night. If you can’t fall asleep, you will have the energy to keep me company tonight.”
In response, Sonia dropped the cutlery in her hand and it landed on the coffee table, making a thud. She was completely flabbergasted.
If you can’t fall asleep, you will have the energy to keep me company tonight. The short sentence kept lingering in her head without any signs of disappearing.
She suddenly recalled the promise she had made to him in his office earlier that day, that she would accompany him that night, and coupled with his words earlier…
Boom! At that instant, blood rushed to her head and her whole face turned as red as blood. She glared at the man with her almond eyes that had various emotions flashing across them. In short, Sonia was utterly embarrassed.
Never in a million years would she have thought that the reason behind Toby refusing to wake her up and allowing her to continue sleeping was actually this.
This man is downright shameless!
More importantly, she indeed felt incredibly energetic at the moment.
On normal days, she would at least feel a little exhausted at that hour. However, that wasn’t the case at that moment; she was in great spirits.
Thus, it was apparent that his plan had succeeded.
“Why are you staring at me?” Toby pretended to not notice her accusing eyes. He cleared his throat and added with a straight face, “Hurry up and eat. You will have strength after you eat.”
“Of course I’ll have the strength to keep up with you in our activity later,” she growled through gritted teeth as she clenched her fists tightly.
Toby raised his dashing brows at her as he cleared his throat lightly. “You have misunderstood me. That’s not what I meant. I merely want you to eat until you are full. It’s not healthy for your body if you don’t eat enough.”
“Ha!” She rolled her eyes at him as she countered, “Do you really think that I’ll buy that?”
Toby averted his gaze guiltily and fell silent because even he himself didn’t believe that.
After all, the explanation that followed after saying that she would have strength after she ate didn’t sound believable at all.
Seeing that Toby remained silent, an enraged Sonia slapped the table. “I’m not eating. I’m so pissed that I don’t have the appetite to eat anymore!”
“Are you really not eating?” He narrowed his eyes, to which she hummed in response and said, “Not eating.”
“Alright, then.” With that, Toby rose to his full height and walked up to her.
Upon seeing his reaction, Sonia somehow had a sense of foreboding. Subconsciously, she lifted her butt and nudged herself to the side, shouting at him warily, “What are you going to do? Stand right there! Don’t come any closer!”
Ignoring her, he went up to her and bent over to carry her in his arms. “Since you have filled your stomach, let’s do some workout to aid in digestion.”
As he spoke, he carried her to the room.
“Huh?” Sonia was stunned again. Do some workout to aid in digestion? Why do I feel that I have dug myself a hole?
At that instant, she finally realized that Toby was setting up a trap when he asked her if she was really not going to eat. That realization pissed her even more, causing her to hit him on his shoulder and bellow at him, “Toby Fuller, you are utterly shameless! How dare you trick me?”
Toby looked down at her and pushed the door to the room open with his foot, his voice containing a hint of a smile when he said, “I didn’t. I asked you if you want to continue eating and you said no. And so, your time after this will naturally belong to me.”
Sonia was rendered speechless, but she then replied angrily, “Who told you that my time will belong to you after I stopped eating? That doesn’t—”
“It’s now night time,” he interrupted and reminded her.
Upon hearing that, she blinked at him in response. “What do you mean?”
“You promised to keep me company at night, so it means that your time belongs to me after the sky becomes dark. Having said that, I kindly gave you one to two hours to eat, but you didn’t cherish the time you had. My kindness has gone down the drain so after this, you have to keep me company,” Toby exclaimed and sighed, accusing her for being heartless as he placed her on the bed.
Sonia was dumbfounded. Why does he sound like I’m the one being ungrateful now? I did say that I’ll keep him company at night, but I didn’t say that all my time after the sky became dark belongs to him. He is making things up! Not only that, he even used that to trick me! That’s really too much!
Sonia glared at him furiously. Then, her red lips parted. She was just about to say something when Toby suddenly lowered his head and captured her lips with his, blocking all that she wanted to say.
Soon, hot and passionate sounds echoed in the room, causing the embarrassed moon to hide behind the clouds. It was almost daybreak when everything returned to quiet.
