Marrying the Ugly Heir for Truth and Wealth Chapter 14
Christina glanced at the black card in her hand. Since I don’t want to have anything to do with Nathaniel, how can I take his card?
She gritted her teeth and passed the card back to him. “I don’t want your money. You can take it back.”
She felt slightly reluctant when she passed him back the card.
Nathaniel looked at her. She wants to accept the card, but at the same time, she doesn’t want to. She’s really a little miser.
He took a few strides with his long legs, closing the distance between them. He did not take the card but instead wrapped his arms around her waist, holding her tightly in his embrace.
His muscular chest was pressed against her. A strong, masculine scent instantly enveloped her. She could feel the warmth of the man’s breath along the edge of her ear.
Her heart began racing uncontrollably.
Nathaniel had already asked Sebastian to gather Christina’s information, which included her social activities and personal relationships.
At this moment, she was like a delicious meal trapped in the hands of a beast. She panicked when she felt Nathaniel’s stare. “W-What are you doing?”
An inexplicable glint flashed across Nathaniel’s eyes. The corner of his mouth curled up slightly into a sly smile. “Have you thought it through? If you leave me, how are you going to explain to the Steeles?”
Immediately, Christina became alert. Her heart was beating so irregularly that her cheeks turned red. “You!”
How does he know about my relationship with the Steeles? Hasn’t he been uninterested in me for the past three years?
Nathaniel lightly grazed his fingers over her face. She had a fair and smooth complexion.
He tucked her stray hair behind her ear before resting them on her neck.
“I’m just worried about you. If you return, they may make things difficult for you or your mother…”
Christina understood his intentions even though he didn’t state them explicitly.
Without Nathaniel as a shield against the Steeles, she would only be hurt deeply by them.
However, Christina wondered how Nathaniel knew so much about her family affairs.
The next second, realization dawned on her, and she was livid. “You investigated me!”
B*stard! So what if he’s rich? That doesn’t mean he can just pry into my personal affairs.
Nathaniel revealed a half-smile, giving him a mysterious look.
To Christina, his expression was nothing but mockery. She glared at him. “With so many women out there, why did you choose me as your wife? Can’t you choose someone else?”
There are countless women who are willing to throw themselves at him. Why can’t he just let me go?
Nathaniel looked determined as he replied, “No, I can’t.”
She had said so much, yet he only needed three words to completely shut her up.
There was no room for discussion.
Christina felt defeated and remained silent.
Nathaniel was satisfied upon seeing the woman in his arms falling silent. It meant that she had realized that the divorce would only bring her more harm than good. He took in her pouty expression and couldn’t get mad at her. He patted her head and comforted her awkwardly, “Be good now. I’ll help you find evidence and seek justice.”
With his power and wealth, he could investigate a matter much faster than Christina could.
Christina swatted his hand away. “No, thank you!”
