“Well, a truce.”
Elizabeth nodded lightly, “It’s better to go back to the same as before, right?”
Same as before?
Max’s heart jumped for joy at her words. But he didn’t realize it himself that he stuttered a little.
“You, you mean…”
Elizabeth glanced at him, then lowered her eyes, and said seriously, “I thought about it on the way back. Grandma’s mood seems to be very stable now, and those small changes don’t seem to be a problem. After all, the operation is going to be done in half a month. There is no need for us to quarrel at this moment, lest grandma will see the clues and affect her.”
Hearing this, Max felt as if he understood something.
“Don’t you understand what I mean? Now is a very critical moment, so we have to cooperate well. After half a month, you can do whatever you want at that time. No one or anything can restrain you.”
Elizabeth felt that what she said was very clear.
“You are a smart person, you should understand what I said.”
Hearing this, Max twitched his lips. How could he not understand?
It was saying that she didn’t want to reconcile with him, nor was she not angry with him, but she had no choice but to truce with him for the sake of grandma.
But what could he say? After all, she was doing it for grandma.
Max smiled sadly in his heart.
He deserved it.
He said in a deep voice, “Okay.”
Seeing Max’s appearance at this moment, Elizabeth’s red lips moved, originally wanting to discuss with him about keeping the
But after thinking about it, she let it go.
Becky already knew what she wanted, and she would definitely tell him. He didn’t mention it again. So he agreed.
He was not that bad.
Elizabeth lifted the quilt, and then said to him, “Since we have discussed it, let’s rest.”
After finishing speaking, she thought of something, got out of bed, opened the wardrobe, and looked at the long pillow lying
in the corner.
This pillow had been on the bed between her and Max for a long time. Until one day, it suddenly disappeared, and the distance between her and Max became inseparable..
It was used again.
Elizabeth took it out and put it back in the middle of the bed.
Seeing this scene, Max’s face became even uglier.
What exactly was he expecting?
From the moment the woman said the truce, he thought that the relationship between the two could go back to the beginning.
After finishing, Elizabeth turned her head and found that Max was still standing there, his face seemed ugly.
Now she didn’t want to guess what he was thinking. She could only ask, “Aren’t you going to bed yet? Then I’ll go to bed first, and you will turn off the lights later.”
After finishing speaking, regardless of whether he agreed or not, Elizabeth lay down directly, covered herself with a quilt, and closed her eyes in front of Max.
Max was speechless.
He looked at the long pillow in the middle of the bed, sneered for a long time, then walked over with a gloomy expression, and lay down stiffly like a corpse.
After the lights were turned off, the room was dark. The senses were infinitely magnified.
Max was breathing heavily and couldn’t fall asleep at all.
But the sound of even breathing came from the people next to him after a while.
Max couldn’t help turning his head to look in the direction of Elizabeth in the darkness for a long time, so long that he didn’t understand what he was thinking.
After they reached a truce agreement, there was no further cold war at home.
After getting up, Elizabeth washed up as usual. When she saw Max getting dressed, she even came over to tie his tie.
Max’s eyes were sharp. The people next to him slept soundly last night, but he had no sleep all night. After finally waiting for the sky to turn light, he felt a little drowsy.
After falling asleep for a while, he heard the sound of her getting up.
Max couldn’t fall asleep either, so he simply got up.
Because he didn’t sleep well, and her reaction made him displeased. There was nowhere to express this displeasure. Max was a little rough in dressing, and even more impatient when he tied his tie.
Unexpectedly, at this time, she would come over to tie his tie.
“Let me do it.”
She said softly.
Hearing this, Max lowered his eyes and stared at her steadfastly.
Elizabeth deliberately avoided his sharp eyes, didn’t look at him, and said softly, “Bend down, or I won’t be able to reach it.”
Max pouted. He didn’t know what he was thinking about, so he didn’t bend down.
Elizabeth couldn’t help looking at him.
Max pursed his lips. He said, “Finally, you are willing to look at me.”
Elizabeth was speechless.
What was the matter with him? Didn’t they have a good chat last night?
Max didn’t know what was going on with him either. Recently, he had become very strange and irritable. He wanted to see her, but he didn’t want to see her. He wanted her to take the initiative to approach him, but when she approached, he couldn’t help
but refuse her.
“Max, don’t be like this. We made an agreement last night. There is only half a month left, so let’s all cooperate.”
Hearing this, Max frowned and took a step back, pursed his lips, and said, “No need, you don’t have to act so actively in places where there are no servants in the future.”
After speaking, he walked away.
Elizabeth stood there, stunned for a while, and laughed angrily.
He was unreasonable!
She didn’t wait for Max and went downstairs to have breakfast by herself. Max came down after a while.
Because of the tie incident before, Elizabeth was angry and didn’t bother to talk to him when she saw him going downstairs. The servants who were in the living room all quietly retreated into the kitchen and dared not come out when they saw Max going downstairs.
They gossiped to the door, watched Max stride his long legs, and then walked over to Elizabeth and sat down.
They were stunned.
“Did they be together?”
“The two of them didn’t have breakfast together before today, but today Mr. Hart took the initiative to sit next to her.”
“Of course. That’s how they get along with each other. They had such a good relationship before and slept together every day. They will definitely reconcile.”
Max sat down beside Elizabeth with a sullen face.
As soon as she sat down, Elizabeth could feel the cold aura on his body. She could feel his reluctance without turning her head.
Although Elizabeth felt a little uncomfortable in her heart, she quickly suppressed it.
There was only half a month.
She could leave here. Now, she endured all of this, for grandma, for the baby, and even for herself.
After completing the psychological preparation, Elizabeth poured a glass of milk for Max with a gentle expression and then smiled slightly when Max looked towards her.
“Good morning, honey.”
Max said nothing.
Instantly, he gritted his teeth.
She didn’t care at all, did she?
