Charismatic Lucas Gray Chapter 1260

1260 I Love You

Lucas looked at Lena indifferently without even batting an eyelid and said directly, “No.”

“Why?” Lena’s eyes widened in surprise. She didn’t expect Lucas to reject her plea for help.

Lucas said coldly, “The fact that the Sawyers can become the top family of California is already a result of my kindness. Don’t push it.”

Lena’s face instantly turned pale, and her hand holding her glass of red wine trembled, causing several drops of wine to spill onto the snowy-white tablecloth.

“Then, can’t you give the Sawyers another chance for my sake?” Lena asked through gritted teeth, her eyes filled with tears as she looked at Lucas pitifully.

For her sake?

Hearing this, Lucas wanted to sneer.

Lena meant nothing to Lucas. He didn’t take her seriously at all.

In fact, if it wasn’t for Cheyenne, Lucas wouldn’t have bothered to talk with Lena at all.

“No,” Lucas said firmly.

When Lena saw Lucas not wavering in the slightest and rejecting her again without any room for compromise, disappointment gradually appeared on her face.

Tears slowly welled up in her eyes, and she frowned while saying aggrievedly, “Lucas, why do I feel like you’re giving me the cold shoulder all of a sudden? How have I offended you?”

Seeing that Lena actually had the cheek to pretend as if nothing had happened, Lucas felt even more disappointed and repulsed.

Since she wanted to treat him as a fool, why should he save her from embarrassment?

Lucas stared closely at Lena’s eyes and sneered. “How dare you ask me how you’ve offended me when you did something so abhorrent.”

Lena’s heart tensed up, she subconsciously clenched her fists, and a look of panic appeared on her face. Could Lucas already know that I’m the one behind that matter?

No, that can’t be. I pulled it off well that day. Lucas shouldn’t suspect me!

As Lena thought of this, a trace of confusion appeared on her face, and she seemed clueless about what he was saying. She asked in bewilderment, “What have I done? What are you talking about, Lucas? I don’t understand what you mean.”

Seeing Lena still feigning ignorance, Lucas couldn’t be bothered to continue wasting his breath with her and exposed her right on the spot. “You don’t have to pretend to be innocent in front of me. You’re the one who took those photos and sent them to Cheyenne!”

He didn’t speak in an inquisitive tone but a firm, aggressive, and affirmative one.

Lena’s expression changed drastically, and her hands clenched the tablecloth tightly, crumpling the snowy-white fabric, which was now all wrenched up like her heart.

“What… what are you talking about? What photos? I have no idea what you’re saying!” Lena tried her best to remain calm and pretend not to know anything. But unfortunately, Lucas’s sudden exposure of her caught her off guard. Her voice stuttered, revealing the obvious guilt and nervousness within her.

Lucas sneered at her.

At this point, she still refused to admit it. It seemed that she was trying to hold out until the very last moment.

“Lena Sawyer, drop the act. Since I’ve already said it, I won’t malign you. Third Avenue, Apex Studios, Marcus Thompson, these names should ring a bell, shouldn’t they?”

After hearing these names, Lena felt as if she had been struck by lightning. Her hands holding the tablecloth trembled violently, and the glasses and tableware on the table clanged loudly.

Apex Studios was the agency Lena had hired to photograph her and Lucas secretly. Marcus Thompson was the photographer who had taken the photos of her and Lucas seemingly being intimate outside the hotel.

Since Lucas had already managed to find Marcus, he obviously knew that she was the culprit.

At this moment, Lena felt as though she had been thrown into an ice cellar, and her entire body was cold. She felt incredibly ashamed and embarrassed, as if she had been stripped naked in public.

She didn’t expect Lucas to find out everything she had done.

So much for pretending and feigning ignorance in front of him just now. To her horror, he had already found out the truth, and her performance in front of him was probably just like a clown act.

At the thought of this, Lena turned pale, and she couldn’t say a word.

Staring at Lena, Lucas questioned coldly, “To be honest, I’m really disappointed in you! Cheyenne has always regarded you as her best friend, and she’s been kind to you for more than ten years. But what did you do to her in return?

“There was clearly nothing between us, but you maliciously hired someone to take those photos that made us look intimate. And you even sent them to Cheyenne to sow discord between us and upset her. Is that what a best friend should do?

“What has Cheyenne done to you to make you hate her so much that you’d want her to suffer and be sad?!”

Lucas’s voice became increasingly louder as he questioned Lena. She lowered her head with every question and was almost unable to raise her head.

Hanging her head low, she clenched her fists, and her nails dug deep into the flesh of her palms. But she suddenly raised her head and stared straight at Lucas. “She hasn’t let me down, but I’ve… I’ve fallen in love with you! I’m in love with you!”


Her words were like a thunderbolt striking Lucas on the head, making him absolutely dumbfounded.

Lucas never thought that Lena would fall in love with him!

This explained why she had tried to sow discord between him and Cheyenne. She wanted to ruin their marriage.

How was this possible?!

Why would Lena fall in love with him?

Lucas was truly dumbfounded as he looked at Lena in confusion, seemingly not knowing her at all.

Since she had already said it, she decided to go all out. With red eyes, she yelled, “Do you remember the first time we met? You sent me home, and I encountered the sudden attack by the speeding motorcycle in front of my house. From the moment you saved my life, I fell in love with you!

“I thought I could suppress my feelings for you and keep them to myself forever, but when you saved me from the deadly pursuit in LA, I knew that everything was God’s will. God must have sent you to me! In that case, why should I give you up and let someone else have you?

“I know I’ve let Cheyenne down, but sometimes, there really isn’t an explanation for your feelings! I didn’t want things to turn out this way, and I don’t want to steal Cheyenne’s husband either, but I couldn’t help myself!

“I’m just so helplessly in love with you that I’d rather give up my friendship with Cheyenne!”

Lena burst into tears and revealed all her feelings for Lucas for the first time.

Dumbfounded, Lucas sat in his seat, at a complete loss for words to express his emotions.
