Read My Past is Just Prologue By Louisa Dillon Chapter 23 – The Beautiful and S*xy Babe
The anger of being slapped and the shock of knowing the truth collided in his mind, making him irritable.
But at this moment, Nathaniel had no time to take care of the pain on his face. He was angry. The scene of Janet slapping him was showing in his mind again and again. Every word she said was echoing in his ears.
That charming and beautiful woman spoke ruthless and sarcastic words and even hit him…..
But the name “Juliana“, like a powerful big palm, broke through his anger of Janet slapping him, pulled all his nerves tightly, and shocked him into deep speculation.
Gilbert caught a glimpse of the person in the photo. His face was full of shock.
“Longfellow Group has always claimed that Ms. Juliana disappeared ten years ago. But I didn’t expect that she came here as an obedient wife for you!”
What big news!
With a sound of “click“, Gilbert deftly flipped off the windproof lighter and lit a cigarette. The lingering white smoke mixed with the thick scent of nicotine enveloped Nathaniel’s cool and handsome face.
Facing Nathaniel’s cold gaze, Gilbert put his arms around his neck and said in a sympathetic tone, “She is Ms. Juliana of the Longfellow family. It is not a loss to have Ms. Juliana as your wife.”
Nathaniel looked solemn. His thin lips moved, and he corrected Gilbert coldly, “She’s my ex–wife.”
Gilbert blew out with a puff of smoke, causing him to cough violently. “If you think she is your ex–wife, you wouldn’t
immediately leave your work and come here desperately as soon as you hear that Janet is here.”
“Well, you regret divorcing her, don’t you?”
“Tsk! You have been connected with your childhood sweetheart all the time. Now that your ex–wife has compromised to help you and your mistress. Why are you so upset?”
Although Gilbert was a playb*y, he had principles and hated the mistress extremely.
He had a bad impression of Anastasia before. In addition to the fact that she had been seducing Nathaniel all these years after
Nathaniel married, his impression of her was even worse.
Nathaniel thought, “Do I regret the divorce for a scheming woman with purpose who hit me?”
Nathandel lowered his cool eyes, suppressing the anger of being slapped. At this moment, he was in no mood to pay attention to Gilbert ́s teasing. All he thought about was the girl from the slumdog who once married him and became Ms. Juliana of the Longfellow fantly who had missed for many years?!
“Check her carefully.”
“Who are you checking? Janet?”
Nathaniel’s facecovered with fingerprints was gloomy. He said in a low voice, “Hmm.”
Gilbert smiled as his beautiful amber pupils narrowed slightly. He sneered, “Buddy, no matter whether Janet was Ms. Juliana of the Longfellow family or not, you are already divorced Don’t you reunite your confidante, Anastasia, who has ties with you? She’s back. Why are you still thinking about your ex–wife? Having your cake while eating it is the behavior of a sc*m.”
Hearing Gilbert’s unpleasant words, Nathaniel raised his eyebrows coldly. His handsome face was grimmer than before.
Feeling the overwhelming oppression from Nathaniel, he slightly lowered his eyelids and said a few seconds later, “Well, the
day after tomorrow is the auction. I will invite her over then. If you have a good chat with her, all the mysteries will be
“Can you invite her, even if I can’t?” Nathaniel frowned.
“Don’t look down on me!”
Gilbert raised his fingers and touched his short hair back. His handsome smiling face was full of confidence. “Probably. I am handsome and charming. No woman can refuse me.”
Nathaniel was depressed and irritable. Seeing Gilbert being narcissistic, he left the club coldly.
Sitting in the car back to Webster’s Residence, Nathaniel was disturbed by the fact that she was Ms. Juliana of the Longfellow family. He looked solemn.
As soon as he entered the door, he smelled the faint fragrance of orchids. He was very familiar with it.
It was the smell of Janet.
Nathaniel sniffed the fragrance and went back to the bedroom.
The room was still decorated by Janet. The sheets, bedding and curtains were light blue in a fresh and elegant style, filled with the faint fragrance of orchids.
He looked at the familiar yet unfamiliar environment, the past events came to his mind frame by frame like a movie.
Janet’s smell was everywhere in the room.
In the three years of marriage, she respected the elders. She took care of all things in the house in an orderly manner and never let him have any worries about the family.
Recalling everything in the past, he felt depressed. His heart seemed to be blocked by a stone, making him unable to breathe.
He lit a cigar and smoked.
He didn’t know if it was Gilbert’s words or the nicotine that stimulated his nerves. Janet wearing an apron and making soup for him with joy flashed before Nathaniel’s eyes. She smiled gently and slyly, burning his eyes.
A familiar and faint female voice came from beside his ear.
“Nathaniel, I’ve washed all your clothes for you.”
“Today is your birthday. I made a cake for you.”
“Nathaniel, are you working overtime again? Go home early…
Perhaps it was the nicotine that stimulated his nerves. As the sparks falling on the fingertips disappeared little by little, the pain stimulated his depressed mood. He was even more depressed.
When the lights came on, the ancient city was livelier than in the daytime. Couples were holding hands, holding dogs, walking after dinner and smiling sweetly.
Janet leaned against the back of the chair and turned her exquisite face, staring at the bustling night scene outside the car window. Nathaniel’s handsome face suddenly appeared in front of her eyes.
She had loved him and broken her heart for him.
One day, three meals and four seasons of love were all she had been looking forward to
It was a pity.
She sneered with red lips. The person she liked didn’t like her at all. Nathaniel destroyed the beauty in her heart.
The cool evening wind blew her long hair through the car window. Ernest beside her took off his coat and wrapped her tightly
in the large coat.
“I didn’t expect Nathaniel to come to this kind of place to look for you in person.”
Ernest let out a “hum” coldly and analyzed for her, “Could that sc*m think of how good you are and then chase after you to reunite with you?”
