“I’m not like her. I’m just taking back what’s mine. Francis muttered as his eyes darkened, seemingly talking to himself. Then, he looked up and said. “That’s something between the both of us You don’t have to bother about it.”
How do you expect me not to bother! That’s my husband. You guys are plotting to harm someone important to me Christina’s gaze was steely Hore can poubly then a blind eye? However, all I can do is be on my guard until I have some concrete evidence
Upon hearing her reply, Francis felt as though he had been stabbed in the chest with a dagger, and he found it hard to breathe for a moment.
I don’t know when it started, but Christina’s delicate face would constantly appear in my mind. Alas, the only has eyes for Nathaniel. He and I are both part of the Hadley family, yet why is he the only one who deserves to have the Hadley
At that moment, the sound of footsteps could be heard coming from the corridor.
Francis’ heart sank a little. Then, an evil thought sprouted in his mind. He slowly walked forward until he was standing right in front of Christina. Holding her gently by her chin, he whispered, “Christina, if there comes a day when you realize he’s not as good as you thought, remember that I welcome you into my arms at any time.”
She slapped his hand away. What nonsense is he spouting now?
“You should hurry up and go back. If I find you two plotting against Nathaniel, I won’t hesitate to expose you.” Christina was very clear about where she stood now. She was on Nathaniel’s side and still at odds with them.
The footsteps grew nearer. Then, a sharp voice barked, “What do you think you’re doing?”
“What you see is exactly what’s going on. What’s there to ask?” Francis had no intention of moving aside. He stood uncomfortably close to Christina, his breath lingering in the small space between them.
From behind, they appeared to be standing very close. It was the sort of proximity that would only occur between lovers.
Nathaniel’s gaze clouded over immediately and turned stormy. Rushing forward, he grabbed Francis by the collar and jerked him backward.
In the blink of an eye, the two men of similar height were grappling with each other.
“Didn’t I warn you to stay away from what’s mine? Why do you insist on looking for trouble?” Without wasting his breath to say anything more, Nathaniel swung a punch toward Francis.
There was a loud thud, and the sound of his fist hitting its target reverberated throughout the spacious.
Francis immediately started bleeding at the corner of his mouth. However, he showed no sign of backing down and retaliated with a punch. “What do you mean yours? She’s just yours for the time being. Who’s to say she won’t be mine in the future?”
“You asked for it!”
Just like that, a brawl broke out between the two men. Nathaniel had practiced boxing before, so his blows
Take Back What Is Mine
were hard and powerful. It was clear at a glance that Francis was no match for him
Shocked to see them trading punches, Christina quickly shouted for them to stop “Stop fighting Why can’t you talk things out in a civilized manner
Her words fell on deaf ears Instead, the fight grew even more intense Neither one was willing to let go of the other, and they were seemingly determined to fight to the death.
Meanwhile, Sebastian broke into a cold sweat as he watched the scene. He wanted to break up the suffle but did not dare to be meter seen Mr. Badley fight in fiercely. It’s as though he’s not planning to stop until he opponent is down for the count. Now that I think about hose much strength he user when I practice with him at the baring gym, I realize he has been going eaty on me. Otherwise, I’d have gotten beaten to a pulp by none………….
A shiver ran down his spine as that thought came to his mind.
“Stop fighting! Someone’s going to get hurt if you keep this up!”
Suddenly, there was a streak of crimson, and the scent of blood filled the air. It was unclear whose blood it
Christina rushed to wrap her arms around Nathaniel, using her back to shield him.
Although Francis wanted to strike back, he was worried he would hurt her and lowered his fist. There were bloody bruises on the corners of his lips and eyes. He had also been punched twice in the chest, which caused him to break into a coughing fit and spit out a mouthful of blood.
“Sebastian, quick! Take him to the hospital!” Christina exclaimed, startled when she saw that. As an A-list actor, how could he let himself get into such a fight? Can he still film looking like that? Nathaniel really didn’t hold
back at all!
“You’re not allowed to take him. Why should my assistant take him to the hospital? He’s not worthy!” Nathaniel uttered with a snort. He also had a bruise at the corner of one eye, and the bloodshot eye looked terrifying.
“If you’re not going to let Sebastian send him to the hospital. I’ll do it,” she said in exasperation. No matter how you look at it, Francis injuries are much more severe. How could they go at each other just because of a minor disagreement? They’re full-grown adults, yet they still act like elementary school children!
“Get him out of my sight at once. Hurry up,” Nathaniel instructed Sebastian while holding Christina’s wrist. tightly as though worried she would leave. There’s no way I’d let her take Francis to the hospital. That guy is as sly as a fox.
Helping Francis walk, Sebastian quickly brought him away from the scene. He was worried that if he delayed for even a second, the two men would start exchanging blows again because of another argument. Although it was not his first time seeing the two of them fight, it was the most ferocious brawl he had ever witnessed.
Francis wiped away the blood on the corner of his mouth before saying coldly. “I’m telling you, Christina. A violent man like him is not the right person for you.”
As he spoke, a look of determination flashed in his eyes like never before.
She quickly waved her hand at Sebastian, motioning for him to take Francis away immediately. Does he think his injuries are not severe enough? If they get into another fight, we won’t need to send him to the hospital anymore. We can just call for an ambulance.
Take Back What Is Mine
After they left, tranquility was restored in the studio.
Christina took out some antiseptic solution and bandages from her handbag, then used cotton swabs to treat Nathaniel’s wounds. His injuries were not as severe as Francis, but one of his eyes was red. “Bear with it. This might sting a little.”
She blew gently on his wound, then put on a bandage for him.
“There, all done. However, everyone will see it when you go to your meeting tomorrow,” she huffed. Ife’s not a kid anymore. Why does he still use violence to resolve problems?
Nathaniel stretched out his arms and drew her into his embrace. The dark look in his eyes grew more intense as he said, “He’s not as harmless as you think. Don’t get into contact with him anymore.”
“All right. He was the one who came looking for me, but I’ll be more careful in the future,” she responded, comforting him as though she was appeasing a child.
Suddenly, she felt him grab her wrist. “You really didn’t meet with him behind my back?”
His icy tone sounded as though he was interrogating her.
She shook her head, then answered calmly, “I told you I didn’t. Don’t you believe me?”
“believe you, but remember never to lie to me.” He hugged her close without letting go, his words sounding like a warning and a restriction.
“You’re worrying too much. Why would I lie to you?” Christina pressed a palm to her forehead, furrowing her brows slightly. In her opinion, one should express loyalty through actions and self-control and not merely pay lip service..
Not getting the reassurance he wanted, he felt what seemed like a surge of anger bubble inside him, and the redness in his eye became even more pronounced. He lifted a hand and grasped her chin forcefully, deliberately causing her pain.
She grimaced and grumbled, “Let go. It hurts.”
Nathaniel’s cold gaze darkened as the thought of Francis standing so close to her when he opened the door flashed across his mind. It was as though they were kissing….
