Seeing this message, Elizabeth subconsciously looked at Max, and just in time to meet his dark and deep eyes.
He was also looking at her intently.
Elizabeth looked at him for a moment, pursed her lips, and turned her head away.
Max was annoyed.
Feeling the phone vibrated again, Elizabeth picked it up and took a look.
[Come close to me.]
Elizabeth didn’t move.
[You can do whatever you want after Grandma’s surgery. But be good now and cooperate with me. Didn’t you say that we are in a trading relationship?]
Seeing the latter sentence, Elizabeth finally came to her senses.
That was right, they were just in a trading relationship.
She shouldn’t be hypocritical.
Thinking of that, Elizabeth took a deep breath and then moved over to Max slowly.
Although she had prepared herself psychologically, every step towards Max was still very difficult for her.
When she finally moved to his side, Max’s expression was darkened to the limit.
He looked at Elizabeth and felt so speechless.
Max suddenly reached out to grab Elizabeth.
Elizabeth was taken aback and avoided subconsciously. However, she was not fast enough, so Max caught her. He pulled her hand to his arm with a sullen face, and said in a deep voice, “Hold me!”
Elizabeth looked at him in shock. He actually said it in front of Grandma!
She couldn’t refuse this time, because she knew Grandma heard it.
Elizabeth had no choice but to hold Max’s arm reluctantly.
Max breathed a sigh of relief, looked away helplessly, and said, “Hold me tight and follow me.”
Elizabeth said impatiently, “I know.”
Madam Hart, who had been quietly listening to their conversation, finally couldn’t help but chuckled and said, “Are you good
Elizabeth was surprised. “Grandma?”
“I felt something was wrong when he didn’t come with you today. Since I lived in the sanatorium, you two have always come
Hearing that, Elizabeth lowered her eyes and pursed her lips.
She thought she acted pretty well, but she didn’t expect Grandma saw through her.
Not only she knew it, she even said it.
That was so embarrassing.
Thinking of this, Elizabeth said, “Grandma, I was just miffed, and we’re good now.”
“It’s normal for young people to get a little miffed, just explain it clearly in time. Max, you are a man, and you have to succumb to Elizabeth,
Max said helplessly, “I always succumb to her.”
He listened to Elizabeth almost on everything in these two years.
This answer made Madam Hart dissatisfied. “Just nod when I tell you something. How dare you talk back?”
Max sighed, “Fine. Grandma.”
After walking around the garden for about 20 minutes, Elizabeth was afraid that Madam Hart would be cold, so she proposed to go back. And the paramedic just happened to call.
“The doctor just came to make rounds, please take Madam Hart back now.”
Max and Elizabeth sent Madam Hart back.
They couldn’t stay with Madam Hart during the checking.
Seeing that Madam Hart was pushing into the consultation room, Elizabeth immediately let go of Max’s arm and took two steps to the side to keep a distance from him.
Seeing Max frowning and looking at her, Elizabeth said, “I’m going to the bathroom.”
After that, she turned around and left without checking Max’s reaction.
When Elizabeth got to the bathroom, she went directly to the sink and found the liquid soap.
Elizabeth washed her hands over and over again with a cold face.
If she only touched Becky alone, she would not have such a reaction, and would not feel anything about Becky.
But as long as she thought about Max being with Becky last night, she felt disgusted.
This kind of feeling was psychologically.
The weather was already cold, so after she washed her hands a few times, they became cold again.
Elizabeth wiped her hands and turned to walk out.
Suddenly, she stopped when she saw Max, who was leaning against the door.
He was staring at the ground. His facial features looked extremely angular and delicate, and his slender eyelashes could be
Hearing the movement, Max raised his head to look at Elizabeth. And his gloomy gaze fell on her hands.
Elizabeth washed her hands several times, and now they looked red.
A look of sarcasm flashed across Max’s eyes. He asked Elizabeth coldly, “Why did you have to wash your hands for so many times? You touched anything dirty?”
Elizabeth pursed her lips and said, “Yeah. That’s why I washed them a few more times.”
Hearing that, Max frowned fiercely.
Elizabeth didn’t bother to talk to Max any more, but she had to pass by him on the way to find Madam.
Elizabeth deliberately took a few steps forward, walking on the opposite side of Max’s wall.
Seeing this, Max finally couldn’t bear it any longer. He strode forward and gripped her hands.
“Elizabeth, do you think I have a good temper? You think I’m dirty? What did I do to make you think I’m dirty?”
He was very strong, and Elizabeth was hurt. She subconsciously tried to break free, but Max held her even tighter.
“Max, let go of me.”
Max didn’t listen to her but stared at her with gloomy eyes.
Elizabeth didn’t feel scared. “Then why do you think I was talking about you?” she asked.
After saying that, Elizabeth felt the strength on her hands was getting even heavier.
Not only that, Max turned his hands over and clasped hers tightly.
“Don’t take it seriously.” Max’s voice was low, and his eyes were always fixing on her.”
Elizabeth endured psychological disgust and forced a smile, “Do you think it’s funny?”
They would divorce soon anyway.
Max pursed his lips, and his eyes turned gloomy.
“You think it’s boring? Then don’t act like you’re avoiding me. Do you think Grandma can’t see it?”
Hearing this, Elizabeth took a deep breath.
“Okay, I see. I promise that things like today will never happen again before Grandma’s surgery.”
After saying that, Elizabeth thought of something and added another sentence.
“Don’t worry. I will play my role well.”
Max did need her promise.
His grandma was a person with extremely delicate emotions and was observant, so he worried that she would notice the problems between them at this time.
Max’s original intention was to ask Elizabeth cooperate well with him.
But when he heard her say that she would play her role well, Max felt a dull pain in his heart.
That kind of pain was like being cutting cruelly and slowly in the heart by a rusty and blunt knife.
Max felt suffocative.
He looked at Elizabeth and asked her in a hoarse voice for some reason, “Did you come out to look for me last night?”
