When Jamie fell into the pool, her thin tank top was torn, and the ripped fabric floated on the water.
Waves of laughter echoed in the area, and Jamie’s face flushed red in an instant. She shot Christina a death stare as if she was going to rip the latter into pieces.
When Christina panicked just now, the only thought in her mind was not to be the only person falling into the pool. She just did not expect to yank Jamie’s clothes.
She also shot Jamie a cold glance.
If the two had not tried to pull such a prank, Christina would not have ended up in the water.
With everyone surrounding them now, if she were to get out of the water, the wet clothes would cling to her body tightly.
It would be such an alluring sight to behold.
However, she could not just stay in the water, for her boily might not be able to take it.
At that point, Christina could already feel her body numbing. If there’s no other choice, I’ll just get out of the water first. Otherwise, I might catch a cold.
Just then, Jewel stepped out of the crowd.
She was holding a towel in her hands, and her gaze fell upon Christina. “Christina, come up here.”
As Christina saw the worried look in Jewel’s eyes, she had a feeling that the latter was harboring ulterior
Beside her, Jamie called out pitifully, “Jewel, hand me a towel too!”
I don’t get it. Jewel was the one who told us to mess with her, yet the former is trying to help her now!
Christina could tell from Jamie’s words that the two girls must have been sent to her by Jewel, and they pushed her into the pool on purpose.
What is Jewel’s intention?
Christina shivered as she climbed up the ladder. Jewel swiftly covered her with the towel and pretended to ask in concern, “Christina, are you okay?”
“Why don’t you try experiencing it yourself?” Christina’s tone was cold. Does she possibly think that I’d be fine after falling into the icy water? I only hope that I won’t fall sick.
Jewel’s face darkened slightly. She then brought Christina back into the house, paying no heed to Jamie, who was calling for help..
Both of them went into a bedroom, and it was warm inside. Christina could feel her body slowly becoming warm again.
There were only two of them in the room at that moment. Christina cast a sidelong glance at Jewel and asked, “Just say it. What are your intentions?”
Just not too long ago, jewel was still acting haughtily, but she seemed so docile now.
Such a drastic change in her attitude made Christina wonder if Jewel was plotting something again.
Jewel’s face grew more sullen. She was not good at pleasing others, so it seemed like she was being forced to do it when she spoke in a relatively good manner. “Christina, why do you sound like you’re questioning your enemy? We’re family.
However, Christina did not buy it. “Family? Yet you told someone to push me into the pool?”
Jewel’s delicate face became contorted. This b*tch! Who does she think she is? Why do I need to humble myself in front of her?
Both of them fell silent for a while. The air around them seemed to freeze when their gazes met,
It took Jewel a while to calm down and stop herself from cursing. She then took the gift bag next to her and handed it over.
“Your clothes are all wet. Get changed and leave. Nathaniel is waiting for you at the entrance” As soon as she finished her words, she left in a huff.
Nathaniel had called Jewel earlier to warn her that he would break her leg if something happened to Christina.
Jewel had always been fearless, but she was always afraid of infuriating Nathaniel.
Behind the closed door, Christina stared at the clothes in her hands and finally fathomed the reason behind the dramatic change in Jewel’s attitude.
It was all because of Nathaniel.
Christina swiftly got changed and walked out of the room with her wet hair.
Her phone also fell into the water just now, and it had basically stopped working. Having to suffer the loss of a phone for no reason, Christina was utterly upset.
Meanwhile, Jewel was guarding the door. She immediately ran over when she saw Christina
“Christina, let’s talk about this later and keep it between us only. Please don’t speak ill of me to Nathaniel.” Although Jewel was making a request, her tone made it sound more like a threat.
It was as though Christina was the one who had done something wrong.
Christina was uncomfortable, feeling as though she had been threatened.
She glanced at Jewel apathetically and ignored the latter’s words before she strode toward the entrance right away.
After stepping out of the place, she saw Nathaniel’s car at the entrance.
The window rolled down, and the man’s perfect–looking face came into sight. His eyes looked exceptionally dark and unfathomable under the dim light.
The black suit on him enhanced his steady and calm temperament.
It was no wonder the arrogant Jewel would be so cautious in front of him.
Before Christina got into the car, Jewel tugged her again and whispered, “Christina, please. Don t tea Nathaniel about what happened just now.”
Christina merely wore an indifferent look. She certainly did not take that matter seriously at all. Of course, she did not want to grant Jewel’s request so easily, either.
Otherwise, Jewel would definitely come up with other ways to trick her again next time.
Christina pulled her shirt from Jewel’s grip and got into the car.
Once the car door was closed, the driver drove off
As Jewel watched the car slowly disappear into the distance, she scoffed. Do you think you’re so great? I’d like to see if you could still behave this arrogantly when Nathaniel gets sick of you. I just don’t get it. I thought Nathaniel couldn’t go near women….
Suddenly, she stopped in her tracks, and her body tensed up.
She had not met Nathaniel for a long time, and she had forgotten about that matter. Nathaniel was not interested in women, and he could not go near them.
Once, she held his arm out of excitement, and rashes started forming all over Nathaniel’s body in less than a minute. He only recovered after he was put on a drip in the hospital.
That was the time when she found out that Nathaniel could not get close to women.
Since he would feel unwell whenever he got close to women, how did he manage to go near Christina? They were leaning close to each other and interacting like a loving couple. This is strange.
Jewel decided to look into it.
Inside the car, the tension in the air was almost suffocating.
Christina’s hair had not dried completely. She could not help but sneeze. As she was rubbing her nose, her head was covered by a handkerchief.
Nathaniel’s unique scent instantly drifted into her nose..
The atmosphere felt strange at that moment. She had no idea if Nathaniel was displeased because she had attended the party.
Sometimes, he would abruptly appear aloof like this, and no one knew what was going through his mind. “Nathaniel, are you mad?” Christina turned to look at him. Her bright eyes sparkled, and her voice was soft as if she was frightened.
There was no towel in the car, so Nathaniel covered her head with the handkerchief. Her features appeared exceptionally delicate. With the ends of her hair still wet and her widened round eyes, she looked even more captivating than before,
