This Time, I Will Get My Divorce, Mr Chapter 115
“What?” Sonia was shocked. Although she knew Tina was going to hurt her, she didn’t expect Tina to threaten to kill her. “You want to kill me?” She tightened her grip around her phone and intentionally raised her voice.
Toby’s face darkened the moment he heard Sonia’s words. As soon as he alighted from the car, he immediately scurried toward the building while trying to calm his distraught mind. I can’t believe Tina is trying to kill Sonia!
On the other hand, Tina’s eyes brightened with malicious glee. “Be careful with what you’re saying, Miss Reed. You will cause your own death in an accident, which I have nothing to do with.”
She slowly walked toward Sonia. In fact, she had never given up on her thought to eliminate Sonia, but ever since the incident in the resort, she never found a chance to execute her evil plan until the discovery of Sonia’s pregnancy had prompted her to do the worst thing. I must get rid of Sonia before everyone else finds out about her pregnancy, or it’s going to be over for me.
Tina soon clamped Sonia’s shoulders with her clutches before she gave a sinister smile and pushed Sonia toward the edge of the stairs. As Tina had the upper hand in the battle, Sonia wasn’t fighting back because she was in heels and it wasn’t long until she found herself near the edge of the stairs.
“Meet your demise.” Then, Tina pushed Sonia down with all her energy; the impact had sent Sonia backward onto the flight of stairs. At the same time, Tina stood on the top and stared at the horrified look on Sonia’s face, waving at her and saying, “Farewell!”
Deep in her heart, she believed Sonia would fall to her death, considering the height of the stairs. Even if Sonia didn’t immediately die from the fall, she would make sure Sonia was dead.
When Sonia rolled down the stairs and was about to hit the ground, a silhouette suddenly emerged from downstairs to spread his arms to break her fall. However, the huge impact had toppled the man and sent him flying toward the wall, which caused him to hit it hard with his back. As his face twisted in pain with a layer of cold sweat coating his forehead, she suffered from an excruciating pain in her stomach with her limbs going numb, but fortunately, she survived the fall.
On the other hand, Tina, who was looking forward to witnessing Sonia’s death, stood atop the stairs in disbelief when her wish didn’t come true. What stunned her even more was that Sonia’s lifesaver turned out to be none other than Toby. The shocking realization instantly caused Tina’s face to pale and rendered her panicky, making her wonder why Toby would show up at that spot.
On the other hand, Toby endured the pain in his back and helped Sonia to her feet. Then, he painfully asked in a hushed tone, “Are you alright?”
In fact, Sonia was able to tell that her lifesaver was Toby from his perfume when he hugged her in his embrace to cushion her from the fall. Thus, she didn’t seem to be surprised as she rubbed her belly and shook her head while answering in a trembling voice, “Yeah, I’m fine.”
“Good to hear that.” Toby heaved a sigh of relief, feeling lucky and grateful for being able to prevent a tragedy. That was close. Sonia would have lost her life had I failed to show up in time. Despite his successful rescue, he still shuddered at the thought of how close the tragedy was about to befall her. Thank God I arrived in the nick of time.
“What about you? Are you okay?” Sonia asked while she looked at him in panic. Oh man! He just saved me once again.
Toby slightly avoided her gaze. “I’m good.”
“Are you sure you’re okay?” Sonia didn’t believe Toby’s answer because she thought she had just heard his painful moan. It was just that she wasn’t sure about it since she was in extreme fear earlier.
“Yes, I’m sure,” he reassured her, trying to endure the pain in his back.
While the both of them expressed their concerns for each other, Tina cast aside her jealousy and tried to sneak away silently. However, when she was about to reach the door, Toby’s glacial voice was heard from behind. “Stay where you are!”
She froze as she subconsciously stopped in her tracks.
“Turn around!” he demanded.
Tina slowly turned with her head down as she lacked the courage to look him in the eye. “Toby—”
“Tina, you have disappointed me!” Toby slowly helped Sonia to walk up the stairs while he fixed his eyes on Tina like a stranger. “I’ve always known you’re not as innocent as you may seem. I thought the most you would do is just pull off some mischievous pranks, but I didn’t think you’d even try to kill someone!”
Tina’s eyes dilated in horror as she looked up and tearfully met Toby’s eyes. “Toby, I-I didn’t want this to happen either, but I just can’t help it.”
“You couldn’t help it?” Her words sounded like a joke to Sonia. “If you can’t control your own actions, you were born to be evil then, Miss Gray.”
“No, that’s not what I meant…” Tina bit her lips, her tears trickling down her cheeks. She then looked at Toby. “Toby, I wasn’t born as a bad person but I’m too insecure.”
Nonetheless, Toby didn’t seem to be touched by the woman’s words for some reason. In fact, he even felt sarcastic when he heard what Tina told him. “You said the same thing to me when you hurt Sonia the last time.”
He gazed at her with an unfathomable gaze. In fact, he felt guilty toward her that time, thinking the reason why she would do such a thing was because he hadn’t spent enough time with her. Therefore, he sarcastically laughed at himself for the previous guilt he felt for her.
Meanwhile, Tina sobbed while an awkward expression flashed and disappeared across her face. Then, she looked down and tried to talk her way out of the situation. “Toby, I just feel too insecure to lose you.”
“You said you felt insecure when I was too close with Sonia the last time and I trusted you, but what about this time? I’ve already kept a distance from her, so what else are you afraid of?” Toby looked at her with a piercing gaze.
“I… I…” Tina bit her lips and took a step back as she stammered incoherently because she was too afraid to speak about her fear.
In the meantime, Sonia had rested her hand on her painful stomach with a glacial look on her face. “Fine, President Fuller. It seems that Miss Gray is struggling to prove her point. In that case, I say we should involve the police since I have the audio recording to prove that she tried to kill me. I think that should be enough to put her behind bars for a good few years.”
Audio recording? Tina’s expression changed as she looked at Sonia in disbelief. “You recorded our conversation?”
“Yes, I did.” Sonia flashed her phone in front of Tina. “Your eyes gave your evil intention away when you came to see me, so did you really think I was going to play along like a dumb slave without a backup plan?” Although her plan narrowly saved her life, she failed to see through Tina’s murderous intent to kill her.
“Toby…” Tina seemed terrified, gazing at Toby with a pale expression while her sympathetic eyes looked as if they were asking him for help. Nonetheless, he only pursed his lips without saying a single word.
Since she was his lover, he knew he was obligated to save her from the worst outcome, yet he couldn’t think of a single word to defend her. Furthermore, his conscience kept him from turning a blind eye to her wrongful action, considering the serious mess she had just created.
When Toby remained silent for a few moments, Tina tearfully shook her head in great dismay and disappointment. He doesn’t want to save me. I can’t believe he isn’t going to save me!
Sonia was also surprised by Toby’s actions as she had always thought he would spoil Tina until the salt wouldn’t save her. Well, I guess I was wrong about him.
At the thought of that, Sonia gazed at him with a complicated look, realizing that there was more about the man than meets the eye even though she thought she knew him.
“President Fuller, since you have no objection, I’ll call the cops now,” she said and reached for her phone.
Since she thought Sonia wasn’t bluffing, Tina desperately came up with a cliché yet effective idea to buy herself some time—‘fainting’. As her eyes rolled upward, she collapsed onto the ground, which shocked both Sonia and Toby.
“Tina.” Toby snapped out of his trance and crouched down to check on Tina’s condition with a concerned look on his face, whereupon he did all he could to wake her up. Nonetheless, his effort soon proved to be futile when Tina didn’t come to her senses after multiple attempts. As he was distracted by her urgent condition, he carried her in his arms and told Sonia to put the matter on hold. “We’ll talk about calling the cops after she comes around.”
Nevertheless, Sonia didn’t answer the man’s words. Instead, she squinted and focused all her attention in observing the lady in Toby’s arms. Tina soon appeared to raise her eyebrow a little, but Sonia was observant enough to notice it as her lips curled upward.
