Betrayal At The Altar By Dolores Delia Chapter 220 From You
On the other end of the phone, Lucas finally understood what the saying “Only women and small–minded men are difficult to deal with” meant.
“I want it!” Met with Rachel’s total control, Lucas’s attitude was sincere. He lowered his head and admitted his mistake without pausing. “It’s fine if I don’t want the respect others give to me, but I can’t refuse the respect given by our Miss Grey. Who are you? You’re the Johnson family’s proper little princess! It’s my blessing that you’re willing to give me a chance to help you! It’s my supreme honor!”
Faced with this excessive praise, Rachel sighed from the bottom of her heart. “You’re worth teaching yet.”
Lucas was speechless once more.
He suspected that this girl was trying to manipulate him!
“Same rules as always. We’ll keep this between us.
“Don’t worry!” Lucas patted his chest and promised. “But let’s make it clear first. If you truly get wronged or bullied, I can’t just sit back and do nothing.”
Hearing this, amusement seemed to flash past Rachel’s eyes. “With my vengeful personality, who could bully me?”
After hanging up, Rachel picked up her fork.
When she looked up, she happened to meet David’s teasing eyes. Her eyelashes trembled in panic. “Why are you looking at me like that?”
“I’m very happy to get to know you again,” David said as he stood up and handed the peeled prawns to Rachel.
Rachel could not help a blush spreading across her fair face. She asked, “Do you think I’m too unreasonable?”
“Are you?” David smiled faintly. “I love you. Whether it’s good or bad things, I love them all as long as they come from you.”
Hearing the man’s sudden expression of love, Rachel’s heart skipped a beat, and then it sped up uncontrollably.
She lowered her head to hide the blush on her face and silently ate the dish
in her bowl.
“You really don’t need my help?” David asked.
Rachel shook her head. “I can handle it.”
“Then I’ll give you my bottom line.” David took out a tissue and slowly wiped the oil stains on his fingers away. “If you suffer any sort of loss, or if anyone. bullies you, I don’t mind expelling the Smith family from Seaxas!”
His casual tone was filled with insufferable arrogance and an unrestrained
sense of dominance.
Rachel looked up at him.
The man’s dark and deep eyes were like endless black holes, or an abyss filled with corpses.
The moment their eyes met, it sent shivers down her spine and inexplicably made her feel like giving in.
For some reason, the warning Lucas gave Rachel suddenly appeared in her
“I don’t know him. I’ve only heard some rumors about him. It’s said that he comes from a country that we can’t reach. That place exists independently and doesn’t belong to any country or organization in this world….
“Rae–Rae, stay away from him. He’s not a good person…”
Even though Lucas’s warning had always been engraved in Rachel’s heart, how could she restrain her heart from falling further into love when she was faced with such a person who doted on and indulged her all the time?
Her eyes were fixed on David’s exquisite face.
Caught off guard, Rachel blurted out, “David, are you a good person?”
When David heard this, a hint of gloominess flashed across his dark eyes. “That depends on what kind of classification you have for good and bad.”
He put down the cup in his hand and stared at Rachel with a burning gaze. His eyes were filled with a calm sort of malice. “When a good person makes a mistake, people will say that his true colors have been revealed. When a bad person does a good deed, he will be hailed as turning over a new leaf. So what’s the distinction between good and bad?”
His voice was low and slow, conveying a lethal danger.
