The next day, Jane woke up rubbing her waist, scolding a certain man’s vigor. Her old waist almost broke because of him.
After a difficult morning routine and finishing breakfast, Jane went to the company again. As soon as she got into the car, she felt an unusual sensation, as if someone was staring at her.
She looked around but didn’t find anything unusual, so she thought it was just her imagination.
At the office, the feeling of being watched disappeared, and Jane immersed herself in her work. At noon, another meeting was held, and when it was time for lunch, Jane ordered takeout.
The delivery arrived shortly, and Jane asked them to bring it directly to her office. Being busy with work, she left the takeout on the table and let the delivery person leave.
However, she didn’t hear the delivery person leaving, which made her feel strange. When she looked up, she saw Mildred, wearing a delivery uniform, pulling out a dagger from behind and lunging at her.
Mildred’s face was ferocious, and she was filled with strong resentment. “Bitch, I’ll kill you!”
Jane was momentarily stunned by Mildred’s sudden action but quickly reacted and jumped away from her as she came closer.
Mildred adjusted her posture and continued her attack, but her movements were too intense. Although Jane knew some self–defense techniques, she could only barely avoid Mildred’s attacks.
However, Mildred was getting older, and her movements were reckless and without any pattern, causing her to tire out quickly. Jane managed to restrain her.
Seeing Mildred, who was still unwilling to let go of the dagger and gasping for breath, Jane understood why she had done this. It was all because of Annie.
Sure enough, Mildred began to curse hysterically, “Bitch, it’s all your fault! You made my daughter lose everything and get arrested. Why don’t you just die…”
Mildred’s expression was agitated and sinister, and it seemed that she had reached her limit of hatred for Jane.
Jane’s face was also unpleasant. She restrained Mildred from behind and said coldly, “Your daughter brought this upon herself, and it has nothing to do with me.”
“You’re talking nonsense. If it weren’t for you, how could my daughter be rejected by Drake? It’s all
your fault. Since you’ve left, why did you come back? If you hadn’t returned, none of this would have happened today!”
“Give me back my daughter! You’re a complete murderer!”
Mildred cursed furiously, tears streaming down her face. Looking at her in this state, Jane thought of her own mother, who would also make any sacrifice for her sake.
After feeling sympathy for Mildred, Jane composed herself. She could sympathize with Mildred’s situation, but that didn’t mean she would forgive her actions.
The police arrived at the company, and Mildred’s emotions were still running high. She continued to hurl curses at Jane with all kinds of nasty words.
Fortunately, it was lunchtime, and there weren’t many people around, and the whole company
Mr Warner, Your Ex–wife is Brilliant
already belonged to Jane, so no one dared to gossip behind her back.
Charles also arrived upon receiving the news, with a pale face and a weary look. He asked Jane if she was hurt, and upon learning that she was unharmed, he walked up to Mildred.
He opened his mouth, but no words came out. His eyes were filled with loneliness and sadness.
Mildred cried and looked at Charles, her heart heavy with pain. “Husband, I want to see Annie. Please ind a way to save her.”
Upon hearing this, Charles sighed helplessly, unable to say anything.
Although Annie was at fault, she was still his daughter, and he didn’t want anything to happen to her. However, things had reached this point, and there was little he could do.
Unfortunately, Mildred’s actions made Charles feel guilty towards Jane, and his heart was heavy.
In the end, he didn’t say anything and let the police take Mildred away.
Jane was somewhat surprised. She thought that Charles would plead with her to spare Mildred, but unexpectedly, he didn’t say a word.
That was fine too, so she wouldn’t have to deal with the awkward situation.
“Jane, I’m sorry!” After Mildred was taken away, Charles came to Jane and apologized with guilt.
fault for not controlling them, allowing them to hurt you repeatedly.”
Despite feeling heavy–hearted about what happened today, Charles still understood that he shouldn’t have asked Jane to spare Mildred.
Everyone must bear the consequences of their choices.
“You don’t need to tell me this. Their choices have nothing to do with you,” Jane said truthfully.
Mildred and Annie’s actions aside, Charles was still a reasonable person.
When Drake arrived after hearing the news, everything was already settled. Mildred was directly detained, and after the evidence was collected and the investigation was completed, she was likely to face imprisonment.
Jane didn’t expect that, in such a short period, the Warner family would become like this because of
But this was also karma. Everything was a result of Annie’s own actions.
After Drake arrived, he anxiously asked Jane if she was hurt. Once he learned that she was unharmed, he finally breathed a sigh of relief.
“Even with Cold Shadow around you, things like this can still happen. It seems that the security measures are not enough,” Drake said as he caressed Jane’s chin, still feeling worried.
“Cold Shadow is a bodyguard and part–time driver. He can’t be with me twenty–four hours a day. Besides, today was an accident. Don’t worry too much,” Jane replied nonchalantly. She felt that today’s incident happened because she was careless; otherwise, Mildred wouldn’t have had the
chance to draw her knife.
“I should tie you to my side, Drake murmured softly. He couldn’t help but feel anxious when he thought that without her, his life would be bleak and empty.
Mr Wamer Your Bravifele Billiant.
“Hey, it’s not that serious. Let go, let me go!” Jane struggled to break free from his embrace. She couldn’t stand being held by him like this.
“Don’t move, let me hold you.” Drake held Jane tightly and refused to let go.
This was the first time he had such an intimate embrace with her in her office, and it gave him a different feeling.
“Drake…” Sensing his rapid breath, Jane knew what he was thinking. She struggled more intensely.
The next moment, her red lips were covered, and she couldn’t make any sound. She could only. endure Drake’s overbearing and fiery kiss.
After a while, Jane was gasping for breath, and Drake finally let her go. He looked at her lying in his arms, delicate and beautiful, and couldn’t help but laugh.
“It’s been so long, and you still can’t hold your breath. Useless!”
Hearing the man’s teasing, Jane was displeased. He was always taking the initiative to kiss her, and now he had the nerve to criticize her?
