Bob stayed in Elizabeth’s office for a long time before leaving.
When he came out, he bumped into Max and Becky, who were walking out of the office.
As soon as Max saw Bob’s figure, Max’s eyes tightened for a moment, and Max looked at Bob with a cold aura all over his body.
Becky, who came out with him, felt it instantly.
She looked at Bob, who came out of Elizabeth’s office not far away, and said thoughtfully, “Mr. Palmer seems to have a good relationship with Elizabeth. I remember they went out to have lunch together a few days ago, right?”
Hearing this, Max frowned, pursed his thin lips, and did not answer,
But Becky didn’t seem to notice his emotions and continued, “Actually, if you think about it seriously, he is pretty nice to Elizabeth. After the Blaine family went bankrupt, everyone avoided Elizabeth, but he joined the Hart Group with Elizabeth and still keeps in touch with her now. I heard that her father raised Mr. Palmer as his son-in-law, and I thought it was just a joke.”
After saying this, Becky stopped and didn’t continue talking.
That was enough.
She couldn’t control Elizabeth, so she could only work on Max.
Sure enough, after she finished speaking, Max’s complexion was as gloomy as the stormy night, and he had obviously listened
to what she said.
But Becky didn’t feel any joy in her heart.
Because Max’s reaction was completely out of her control and speculation, which was why she didn’t dare to let Max know that
Elizabeth was pregnant.
It seemed that she had to do it faster.
Max came out of the bathroom after washing up. He had a bath towel tied around his waist, and his upper body was still naked. When he came out, he took a towel to wipe his dripping hair.
When entering the bedroom, he suddenly found that the light in the bedroom was still on.
Elizabeth was still leaning on the bed with a laptop in her arms to handle her work.
She had a Bluetooth headset in her ears.
“Well, take a look at this place again, and send it to me after you modify it.”
Her voice was clear and shallow, and she uttered a sentence or two from time to time. Then, her fair fingers tapped on the keyboard quickly.
Max stopped wiping his hair, feeling very uncomfortable watching this scene.
He didn’t walk over until Elizabeth hung up the phone, and there was no movement.
“Can’t you finish the work during the day?”
Hearing this, Elizabeth didn’t even raise her head.
“I didn’t finish it during the day.”
So she could only work overtime. The most important thing was that she wanted Kiera to get started quickly. Although it was a
bit hard for Kiera, this was the only way for now.
Max was silent for a moment and said in a deep voice, “Then, you can deal with it tomorrow.”
At this moment, Elizabeth kept her head down. Her long eyelashes were as black as crow feathers, covering her lively and beautiful eyes. She, who had been staring at the laptop screen, slowly raised her eyes after hearing Max’s cold voice. She turned
her head, and her eyes fell on Max’s face.
Max stood by the bed, looking down at her.
The figure of the man was straight, and there was a clean, fresh scent of soap on him just after taking a bath, which smelled very nice.
At this moment, Max was looking down at Elizabeth from a high position, and there was a cold aura all over his body.
He seemed to be dissatisfied with her.
Elizabeth just made eye contact with him, and she understood what was going on. She closed the laptop in her hand and took off the Bluetooth headset in her ear, “Are you going to rest? Then, I’ll go to the study next door.”
After finishing speaking, Elizabeth got up and got out of bed directly with her laptop.
At this moment, her mood was as calm as water. She only thought about how to finish her work and how to make Kiera understand. There was nothing else.
But when passing by Max, he still said something to irritate her.
“Is the time in the company during the day not enough for you to deal with work? Or is the work delayed because there are other more important things?”
Hearing this, Elizabeth paused.
“What do you mean?”
The distance she walked was exactly behind Max, and she didn’t look back with the laptop tucked under her arm.
“What do you mean by delaying work because of other more important things? Do you think I didn’t work hard when I was in the company?”
“Is not it?”
Max sneered, “If you worked hard in the company, why would you take your work home to deal with it?”
Elizabeth frowned, not knowing why Max was suddenly acting up.
Neither of them looked back, and they just stood back to back.
After a long time, Max suddenly sneered.
“Why don’t you talk? Why? Did you have a good time chatting with Bob?”
Hearing this, Elizabeth paused as if she suddenly understood why Max behaved like this.
It turned out that his ridiculous masculine pride was acting up again.
Elizabeth kept the same attitude, and she was too lazy to argue with Max in this situation, so she didn’t intend to explain. She just took a step, ready to leave.
Elizabeth felt her wrist tightening. Max grabbed her slender wrist and pulled her back.
Elizabeth didn’t even have time to react, and she was lifted by Max. The laptop fell off in her hand in a whirl. Then, Max clamped her hands, pulled them up to the top of her head, and pressed her onto the soft bed.
When Elizabeth came back to her senses, Max had already pressed her down.
“Max, what are you doing?”
She struggled, but Max frowned and clasped her hands even tighter. He raised his knees and pressed her scurrying legs.
Unwilling to be pressed by him, Elizabeth turned her head angrily and bit Max’s arm.
His arms were strong, but Elizabeth’s teeth were also sharp. Max felt the pain, and he frowned.
“No!” Elizabeth replied inarticulately.
Max said, “Mon! Let go!”
The name Mon made Elizabeth feel a little dazed. The moment her mouth loosened, Max pinched her chin and then turned her
face to meet his.
When she bit him, she was probably angry because of the recent incident, so she didn’t go easy on him, and Max’s arm was bleeding from the bite..
So at this moment, Elizabeth had a little red blood on the corners of her pink lips. Compared with her fair skin, the redness was quite shocking.
Max glanced at his arm, and there was a clear tooth mark on it.
He sneered, “You bit me so hard. Mon, do you have a conscience?”
“Since you have a conscience, then let me go.” Elizabeth retorted.
She didn’t expect that Max would suddenly call her by her nickname like this. In fact, he hadn’t called her that way for a long
Before the two had this kind of relationship, when he was angry with her, he would call her Mon meaningfully, saying that she was getting bolder.
Elizabeth looked at Max, who was condescendingly looking down at her, and said with a sneer, “Also, what does it matter to you that I chat with Bob? You look so anxious, so are you jealous?”
