Chapter 492 I Respect Your Decision
Elise was slightly amused by this, but she soon noticed that something was off.
Kenneth is rather good at fighting. I don’t think he was tricked by those guys just now, so why did he faint?
Narrowing her eyes, she bent toward him and took one of his wrists to take his pulse.
After a short moment of silence, she stared at his face, a conflicted look flickering in her eyes.
What is going on here? Why is he suffering from the same poison as Grandma?
He has the same symptoms as Alexander—they are both showing early stage mutations because of the poison.
Her thoughts in chaos, Elise looked at the man in front of her who shared nothing similar with Alexander.
After thinking about it for a long time, she could not find any connections between both of them.
In the end, she helped him up and walked out of the alley.
There was no apparent reason for helping Kenneth out. Since he was also struck by the misfortune, she could only hope that someone would help Alexander the same way and save his life if he fainted by the roadside due to the effects of the poison.
Fortunately, Elise found Kenneth’s hotel card and realized that they were staying at the same hotel. Hence, she did not need to make a detour.
Even so, it took her a lot of effort to bring him back. After all, he was almost more than six feet tall.
When they reached the stairs, Kenneth trembled slightly as he slowly regained consciousness.
With his head lowered, he saw a woman’s shoes as soon as he opened his eyes, and he immediately knew that it was Elise who brought him back. His lips twitched into a triumphant smile as he deliberately dragged his feet against the stairs, and this escaped Elise’s notice.
Because of that, their bodies quickly separated. Seeing that the unconscious Kenneth was about to fall to the ground, Elise quickly stretched out her arms to pull him back.
With that, the both of them went from being side-by-side to being right in front of each other.
Kenneth deliberately slumped against her weakly, but there was a sly smile on his face, showing that he had succeeded in his plan.
Just as Elise was glad that they did not fall to the ground, a waiter walked past them with a huge mirror in his hands, so she shot a curious glance at the mirror.
Coincidentally, she saw Kenneth’s triumphant smile and she instantly narrowed her eyes dangerously.
Meanwhile, Kenneth, whose eyes were closed, suddenly felt a shiver down his spine as he felt a murderous aura around him. He quietly opened his eyes to look around him, but he found nothing out of place, apart from a waiter who was moving a mirror. Hence, he closed his eyes again to enjoy Elise’s warmth around him.
However, she gritted her teeth and took a sharp breath before she took out the silver needle that was hidden in her sleeves.
This filthy man actually played a trick on me!
All my kindness and effort to bring him back for such a long distance have gone to waste!
Should I let him suffer like those fighters just now, or should I directly destroy his manhood so that he is unable to tease other girls in the future?
Elise let him take advantage of her while she thought of a perfect plan to punish him.
Suddenly, her eyes lit up and she came up with a good idea.
There’s nothing better than making everyone leave him!
Thinking about this, she raised her hand without any hesitation and plunged the needle into the nape of his neck.
Kenneth’s body gave a jolt before he passed out for real this time.
A few minutes later, Elise brought him to Melody’s room and rang her doorbell.
Soon, the door opened and Melody appeared. Her expression turned curious as she saw the weird position of Elise and Kenneth.
How did he offend her again this time?
“Miss Sinclair, is there anything I can help you with?” Melody kept her usual calmness.
Elise did not expect that, so she did not react for a moment.
“Ahem!” She then cleared her throat before saying slowly, “Miss Melody, you know very well how he pestered me over the past few days. He even followed me today with evil intentions.”
“Evil intentions?” Melody arched her eyebrows as she looked at the both of them in front of her.
I wonder who actually has evil intentions between the two of them.
Elise could tell what she was thinking, but she remained firmed as she shot a glance at the unconscious Kenneth. “Since he can’t beat me, I guess I’ll say it’s a failed attempt to attack me. But I guess this is enough to show you his true colors.”
“He lost to you?” Melody placed her focus on the wrong point. If I remember correctly, he has never lost to anyone before this.
“Yes. This man is useless. Since you are quite eligible, you’d better change a partner,” Elise said solemnly. “There are so many fish in the sea and you don’t have to stick to this one. Since I’m planning to start a new company, you can join me if you are willing to. I’ll give you all the benefits Kenneth has given you. On top of that, if you do a good job, I will even introduce you to some men. How about that?”
Melody felt awkward upon hearing that. No matter where I go, it’s all the same in the end.
“Does he know that you are recruiting me?” she asked.
“The person who lost doesn’t have to know about this.” Elise then loosened her grip and let Kenneth slide to the ground. “I’ll be frank with you—I have a good impression of you, but I simply can’t stand Kenneth. If you jump ship to my company and break off all ties with him, I don’t have to take pity on him when I settle scores with him in the future.”
Melody nodded thoughtfully. “Does this mean that I’m saving his life?”
“Hmm? I guess so,” Elise replied subconsciously before realizing that Melody had brought the topic astray yet again. “This is not the point. I just want to know if you want to work for me or not. Are you willing to leave him and give yourself a chance to lead a new life?”
Melody stared into Elise’s eyes for a few seconds before she replied calmly, “No, thank you.”
“Sorry?” Elise thought her ears were playing tricks on her. “Think about it—based on Kenneth’s unremorseful behavior, he will definitely tick me off one day. If you continue to stay with him, I might even attack you along with him. Miss Melody, you are a smart and educated person. You should know that your life continues even after you leave him. Don’t be too sentimental here.”
“Thank you for your kind advice, Miss Sinclair. However, Mr. Bailey saved my life, so I will live and die for him. No matter what happens, I will never betray him,” Melody said calmly.
Upon hearing that, Elise merely shook her head pitifully.
She is loyal, but fate likes to play a fool on us.
In the end, Elise only turned around and shot a cold stare at Kenneth, who was currently on the ground.
I wonder where his luck comes from to have such an amazing woman with him.
Forget it! When the gem auction event is over, I’ll try my best to avoid them.
“I respect your decision,” Elise said gallantly before turning around to leave.
When she was waiting for the elevator, she seemed to sense something and turned her head around. Then, she saw Melody carefully pick Kenneth from the ground and brought him into her room.
Elise had no idea why she felt slightly uncomfortable upon seeing this, as if her beloved toy was being taken away by another person.
She did not understand the reason for such feelings.
Could it be that my pity for Melody is so much that I feel upset as soon as I remember that Kenneth is going to continue to affect her life?
As the door of the elevator opened, Elise shook her head to let go of such emotions.
No matter how much Melody and Kenneth torture themselves, it’s none of my business.
