Marrying the Ugly Heir for Truth and Wealth Chapter 19
Freya gritted her teeth furiously when she realized Christina’s husband was a handsome man with a high ranking, and the jealousy in her heart grew into hatred.
In any case, their pretentious and fake friendship had ended. She had nothing to be concerned about.
“So what?” Freya then turned to face Nathaniel. “Your wife was most likely involved with countless men while you were away. I would divorce her right away if I were you!”
His harsh words were like a bucket of ice water poured over Christina’s body.
She was so angry that her fingertips felt cold. After all these years, she hadn’t realized Freya had always harbored ill intentions toward her.
If she hadn’t met Nathaniel that night, the matter of her innocence would never have been properly explained with such wild accusations.
She would have become the kind of shameless woman Freya had described in Nathaniel’s eyes.
Christina narrowed her eyes coldly. “Freya! I must’ve been blind to have treated you like a sister. I shared all my secrets with you, but you used my weakness to hurt me!”
Freya’s face contorted with rage. I thought that if I revealed the fact that Christina had lost her virginity, that cold and handsome man would tear her apart.
Surprisingly, the man continued to stand in front of Christina with no intention of blaming her.
Freya had been playing the role of a good friend in front of Christina for four years at university because she discovered that Brayden treated Christina differently.
Brayden would undoubtedly attend any party where Christina was present. Freya had deliberately bonded with her in order to get closer to him and sabotage their relationship from within.
Freya didn’t expect Christina to be so gullible that she’d tell her everything.
When she met Christina’s resentful gaze, Freya felt that she had the upper hand. “How can you blame it on me when you’re the one who’s stupid?”
Christina gritted her teeth silently, her stomach churning with rage.
Freya glanced at Brayden with eyes filled with admiration, and he returned her gaze with something flickering in his eyes.
She persisted and continued to interrogate Christina, “You are obviously married and have a husband. So why do you still keep hanging around Brayden? You know that I have been secretly in love with him for four years! You led Brayden on without telling him the truth. I’m just bringing your hypocrisy to light. What’s wrong with that?”
That’s right. I’m not at fault. Christina’s just a b*tch. Such a person doesn’t deserve happiness, let alone Brayden’s favor!
Christina felt ridiculous when confronted with Freya’s rage and distortion of facts.
It would have been impossible for Freya to have such thoughts if she had just tried to understand her for a bit.
Freya clearly knew how helpless I was when I was forced to marry into the Hadley family. That’s just great. Let’s intensify your hatred for me since you hate me so much!
With a sneer, Christina said, “I’m the type of person who likes to have a clear distinction between love and hate, and I have to be clear about everything.”
Freya frowned, unsure of what she meant.
Christina looked at Nathaniel with a distant expression on her face before she took out a white pill from her bag. “You have such a venomous heart. Taking this pill will help you cleanse your heart of its venom.”
Nathaniel raised his brows slightly, and after hearing their conversation, he naturally understood what Christina was on about.
Christina stared at Freya coldly. “Take this pill, and the enmity between us will be written off.”
Freya’s face turned pale in an instant as if she were facing a formidable foe. Christina, who was usually delicate and frail, had surprised her by being so strong at this moment.
Is she really the Christina I know?
“I-I won’t eat it!” Freya immediately refused.
Christina snorted, looking demonic and dangerous. “You’re not brave enough to eat it? Why didn’t you consider what would happen to me when you asked me to eat it? You’re lucky I’m only giving you some laxatives!”
I am just as determined as Freya was heartless back then.
Christina strode forward and closed in on her menacingly. “Are you going to eat it yourself? Or do you want someone to feed you?”
Freya was well aware of the consequences of eating it. She was terrified, and her heart was pounding.
Her face was pale, and she looked at Brayden beseechingly. “Brayden…”
Brayden had heard their conversation loud and clear just now. He couldn’t think of any reason to help her because she was the one who had tried to hurt Christina first.
As for her confession, he pretended not to hear it.
He shifted his gaze away from Freya and toward Christina. Her pure face remained flawless, but their relationship had changed.
Brayden’s eyes were filled with disappointment, and he let out a sigh. “The grudge is between you and her. You should settle it yourself.”
He turned around and walked off the stage, striding toward the door after he said that.
Christina felt regretful when she saw Brayden leave, but she would not try to persuade him to stay.
After all, they had always been people from two different worlds.
Christina raised her head and stared coldly at Freya. “I don’t have the patience to wait for you.”
The implication is that I will be fed if I don’t eat it.
The bar belonged to Christina’s husband, and Freya knew she had no way out.
She took the pill from Christina’s hand and popped it into her mouth.
Christina snorted coldly after watching her swallow the pill. “Don’t greet me when we meet again.”
With that, she dragged Nathaniel off the stage.
Freya stood on the stage, held her breath, and glared at Christina’s back as she walked away.
Christina let go of Nathaniel’s hand indifferently after she stepped down the stage.
He glanced at his empty palm, and there were still traces of Christina’s warmth on his fingertips.
“Don’t follow me. Hurry up and leave,” Christina said flatly, stressed out by the fact that she had to find a new job.
Nathaniel felt as if he was being discarded after he had served his purpose. How daring of her!
He stepped forward, wrapped his arms around Christina’s waist, and shackled her. “Did I say you could go?”
“You want to restrict me again? It’s against the law, you know!” Christina was a university student who had a strong awareness of the law.
Nathaniel fixed his gaze on Christina and smiled coldly. His dark eyes could seduce the souls of others. “I just spent five million to bid on your solo dance, Mrs. Hadley.” He turned his head slightly, pressed his thin lips against Christina’s ear, and said softly, “I own the rest of your time and your body!”
Christina felt as if something in her had exploded, and her entire body froze.
Nathaniel beckoned the manager over with his finger, who immediately understood and handed over the key. “The room is ready, Mr. Hadley.”
He left tactfully after he said that, not daring to ruin Nathaniel’s mood.
Christina became alert at the sight of the gleaming silver key. “What are you doing?”
Nathaniel stared at her innocent little face with affectionate eyes. “Why would I have the nerve to say such things when actions speak louder than words?”
His lazy and provocative voice echoed in Christina’s ears.
Christina, of course, understood what he was implying. Her delicate brows furrowed, and she retorted, “You shameless scoundrel!”
Nathaniel still had an unruly and cold smile on the corner of his lips, and he promptly carried Christina on his shoulder. “Then I’ll do as you wish, Mrs. Hadley. I’ll be a shameless scoundrel until the end.”
