Life After Prison by Silencieux (PDF) novel Chapter 2

The loud bang startled the amorous couple on the bed. The man hurriedly covered himself with a blanket, while the woman turned pale with fright and pulled another blanket to cover herself. 


“Who are you? Some beggar from the streets?” Easton froze when he saw Severin in tattered clothes. 

“You said you’d wait ten years for me, but it’s only been five years and you’re already…” Severin clenched his fists so tightly that there was a crackling sound from his joints. The blood that surged up to his brain due to anger made his forehead veins throb, and he looked exceedingly ferocious right then. 

“Severin?!” Lucy exclaimed in disbelief after getting a good look at him. “You’re back? How?!” 

Severin felt his heart convulse violently as a faint self-mocking grin appeared on his lips. “You ended up with this b*stard, now? Of all the people you could have chosen to be with, did it have to be him?” 

Easton’s confidence returned a bit more after seeing that the intruder was Severin. While putting on his clothes and pants, he said, “You got a problem with that? Are you saying that I’m not good enough for her? I’ve got money and power, so isn’t it obvious that I’m better than some loser in hobo’s clothes?” 

Severin ignored Easton completely. Instead, his bloodshot eyes were staring firmly at Lucy. “Hahaha, isn’t it funny? I came back to you as soon as I’ve reached ‘that level’ because my plan was to give my whole world to you. I wanted to make you the happiest woman in the world, but here you are, sleeping with the man who forced himself on you all those years ago!” Severin then paused for a moment and continued, “I wouldn’t blame you if you decided not to wait for me, but did you really have to be with someone like him?” 

Severin’s telling-off led Lucy to put on a nightgown and stand up. She then remarked proudly to him, “You’re the funny one here, Severin. Did I hear you right when you said that you were going to give your whole world to me? What do you have to offer when you’re dirt poor? You can never reach the standards of rich young men like Easton. He can buy me bags that cost several thousand on a whim. Can you do that?” 

After ending her rant, Lucy sat on the head of the bed and crossed her legs. She took a cigarette, lit it, and smoked it as she continued, “I’ll spend my entire life having to suffer if I get married to a loser like you. With Easton, I can enjoy a whole lifetime’s worth of riches and glory. So, the choice is pretty clear, even to an idiot.” 

“Hahaha, did you hear that? Even idiots wouldn’t choose you!” Easton went up to Severin with a smug expression and said, “Hehe, let me give it to you straight. She and I hooked up barely half a year into your imprisonment. It still surprises me that your girlfriend of three years in college chose to get together with me! Tsk, tsk!” 

Severin slapped Easton with the back of his hand, resulting in some bleeding at the corner of Easton’s lips in addition to two fallen teeth. 

“Are you nuts, Severin? Do you wanna go to back to prison?” 

Lucy was startled by what happened and rushed over in a hurry. She turned to Easton and asked, “Are you alright, Easton?” 

Her reaction left Severin with overwhelming sense of disgust. It hardly crossed his mind that the person he wanted to give his world to was actually nothing more than a gold digger. 

He gritted his teeth, pointed to the door, and said, “Get out! Both of you!” 

Lucy stood up, and retorted with a snicker, “Fat chance, Severin. You’re the one who should be getting out of here! This house belongs to Easton now. Did you think you could just go to prison without paying any compensation for the injuries you caused when you injured him? Then again, if you like the house so much and you have money, I can always sell it back to you. I won’t be staying here for long anyway. I’ll move into Easton’s villa after we get married!” After a pause, Lucy looked at Severin with disdain and added, “But judging from how shabby-looking you are, I don’t think you’ll be able to afford it even if I slash the price by half.” 

Severin clenched his fists and said coldly, “No thanks. I couldn’t bear to live in such a disgusting place.”
