When Becky came out of Elizabeth’s office, her face was extremely dark.
The hands hanging beside the skirt trembled slightly.
She didn’t expect that Eric, an assistant, would dare to laugh at her like this.
Although she didn’t scold him just now, Becky felt that she could not let things slide.
So as soon as she entered the office, Becky couldn’t help but say what had happened just now. When she said it, her tone didn’t have the slightest bit of resentment. She only hoped that Max would feel sorry for her after hearing it.
However, when she finished speaking, Max didn’t respond for a long time.
Becky looked at him suspiciously, only to realize that although Max was staring at the notebook in front of him, he was distracted as if immersed in his own thoughts.
Helpless, Becky had no choice but to call him two more times. Max suddenly came to his senses, frowned and looked at her. “You are back”
Becky was speechless.
She had long come back.
She had been talking to Max for a long time, but he did not notice her?
Becky forced a smile. “Well, I’ve been back for a while, and you didn’t respond to me while I was talking to you.”
After finishing speaking, she tentatively asked, “Did something happen?”
Max had already come to his senses and shook his head lightly upon hearing this.
Seeing that the food box in her hand was not there, he frowned even more. “She wants the food you sent over today?”
Didn’t Becky get it back yesterday?
Hearing this, Becky could only shake her head. “No, she still doesn’t want to eat the food 1 cook. Max, is my cooking really bad?”
Max was actually not picky about what he ate. For him, food was only something that satiated his stomach, so he couldn’t tell whether it was delicious.
But Becky was the one who saved him, so naturally he wouldn’t be perfunctory.
“No, don’t think too much.” Max could only comfort her softly. “Since she doesn’t want to eat what you cook, what about you?”
In fact, Max wanted to ask where the food box went.
And for some reason, knowing that Elizabeth didn’t eat Becky’s food, he actually felt a lot more relieved.
He didn’t understand it himself.
So Becky could only repeat what happened just now.
The food box was taken by Eric. No wonder Becky didn’t get it back.
After saying this, Max fell silent.
Becky waited for a while but found that Max still had no response, so she could only call him again, “Max…”
Max looked at her. “What?”
His expression was normal, and there was nothing wrong with his eyes. Seeing his appearance, Becky had no choice but to give up on what she was going to say.
Then, Max fell into his own thoughts again.
As if thinking of something bothering him, he raised his hand and frowned.
Becky suddenly saw a row of scars on his arm that resembled teeth marks.
Her expression immediately changed. “Max, is your arm injured?”
Hearing this, Max paused, and followed her gaze to look at his arm.
Seeing the small tooth marks accidentally exposed on his arm, Max remembered how rude Elizabeth was when she bit him last night, and felt a dull pain in his temple..
Thinking of this, Max pulled down his cuffs without any trace and said calmly, “I’m fine.”
Max was lying!
Becky saw it all. Although she only saw a half of the wound, she was almost sure that it was a row of teeth marks.
Why were there teeth marks on his arms? It couldn’t be bitten by a man, could it?
So there was only one possibility left….
Becky’s face paled in an instant. She didn’t expect that Elizabeth would not keep her promise!
The next day, Becky used delivering food to Elizabeth as an excuse to argue with Elizabeth when no one was around.
“Elizabeth, is this how you return favors?”
Elizabeth thought Becky was going to pretend to be kind again today, but instead, she was being accused.
Elizabeth frowned. “What do you mean?”
“Are you pretending?” Becky gritted her teeth and grabbed the corners of the food box with her hands. Although she was full of anger, she still kept her voice low. “The third article of the agreement we agreed on before is you can’t have any intimacy with Max before the divorce. Have you forgotten this agreement?”
Elizabeth pursed her lips. “Yes, I remember that. Why?”
“Remember? Did you keep your promise then?”
Elizabeth nodded. “Except for the need to cooperate in front of Grandma, I have no intimate behavior with him at other
Elizabeth thought she had done a good job.
Unexpectedly, Becky said, “You’re lying! You didn’t keep your promise at all.”
What Becky said made Elizabeth frown.
Becky then complained, “I saw a row of tooth marks on Max’s arm yesterday.”
Mentioning this, Becky felt madder.
Under what circumstances would the woman bite the man?
Just thinking about it, Becky couldn’t stand it.
Hearing that, Elizabeth was startled.
She almost forgot about tooth marks.
“Why don’t you talk anymore? Are you guilty?” Becky gritted her teeth and asked, “Elizabeth, are you going against the promise?”
“No.” Elizabeth immediately raised her head and denied it. Since she wanted to pay back the favor, how could she not keep her promise?
But the matter of the tooth marks was indeed her fault.
“No? Then why did you still…”
Elizabeth had no choice but to interrupt, “There is something that I think must be explained to you. Since I have promised you, I will definitely do it, but I also hope you understand that there is some passive physical contact between him and me.”
“Passive?” Becky finally calmed down a little.
Elizabeth nodded. “Grandma Hart hasn’t had an operation yet, so we can’t reveal our secrets in front of her.”
“I understand this, but you can’t bite Max’s hand in front of Grandma Hart, can you?”
“Oh, that’s really impossible.”
“So, are you admitting that you violated the agreement?”
“No, if you really want to know, I can only tell you that I acted like this because of resistance, and I didn’t violate our
As for why she resisted, Elizabeth would let Becky think for herself.
Since Elizabeth had promised Becky in the coffee shop that day that she would keep her promise, Elizabeth no longer owed
Becky since that day.
Sure enough, Becky froze in place after hearing that.
Did he bite Max just to resist?
What did she resist?
Becky stared at Elizabeth with wide eyes, only feeling that her mind was in a mess.
“Are you sure you’re telling the truth? Elizabeth, do you not want a divorce at all, so you deliberately say these things to sow
discord between Max and me?”
“Is it necessary?” Elizabeth said expressionlessly, “Moreover, you have saved his life.”
