This Time, I Will Get My Divorce, Mr Chapter 34
While Toby was deep in his thoughts as he looked at the letter, someone knocked on the door of the room and opened it.
“I saw that the lights in your room are still switched on, so I guessed that you are still busy.” Tina entered the room as she wore a dark blue bathrobe. The belt was loosely tightened around her waist, revealing her collarbone and some fair skin. She also sprayed some perfume on herself and looked quite attractive.
After she placed the glass of fruit tea on the table, she leaned toward him with intention. “I made some fruit tea so that you will feel more energized when you work.”
“I’m done with work,” he answered. Then, he opened the drawers and showed her the letters within. “When I was about to take a pen, I saw our previous letters. I didn’t expect that we would have exchanged many letters with each other.”
Tina panicked for a moment when she saw the letters, but she quickly calmed herself down. “It has been six to seven years ago. Why are you still keeping them?”
“They are extremely memorable for me.” Toby caressed the letters and smiled. It’s because you are the first woman I fell for.
Tina turned around to wrap her arms around Toby and leaned against him. “Toby, since I’m with you now, we don’t need these letters anymore. Why don’t you ask the maids to destroy them tomorrow?”
Upon seeing that he had remained silent, she pretended to feel hurt. “You keeping these letters show that you are still in the past. Am I as a living person any lesser than the letters? Do you want to continue to talk to me through letters and not live together with me?”
When Toby saw the hurt on her face, he felt quite sorry for her. She’s right. She’s here with me now, so it’s not important to keep the letters now.
He caressed her hair. “Alright. I will ask people to destroy them tomorrow.
“Sure!” Tina slightly smiled. Her heart skipped a beat when she smelled the nice fragrance from him.
She quickly summoned her courage to kiss Toby’s Adam’s apple.
Toby’s body stiffened for a few seconds. When she kissed his jaw, he did not pull her into his embrace. Instead, he pushed her away inconspicuously.
At this point, she had already untied the sash on her robe to reveal huge patches of her fair skin.
Upon being faced with such temptation, his expression did not change whatsoever. Without even looking at her for another second, he adjusted the bathrobe back on her.
“Toby, we are already living together.” No matter how emboldened she was, Tina still felt awkward when she faced such rejection. “We can do anything together. Or, are you thinking that I’m not good enough?”
We’ve already been living together, so we can do some intimate things. However, he doesn’t seem to even have any desires even after such temptation.
On the other hand, Toby had also felt slightly anxious.
When he saw tears swimming in her eyes, he gently consoled, “You have just recovered, so your body still needs to regain its strength. Let’s talk about this in the future.”
“Alright.” Tina nodded and leaned in his embrace, but worry still rose within her.
As soon as she signed the contract with Rentoor, things had been going well for Sonia.
While she was busy with work in the office, her secretary knocked on the door before entering with a document in her hand. “President Reed, Mr. Coleman has sent this over.”
“What could he have sent?” Sonia mumbled and took the document out of its file.
After perusing it, she realized that it contained details of Continental Co. and gave off the aura that he created this document to stage a takeover of the company.
Sonia immediately called Charles to tell him about this.
He immediately remarked, “It’s a good plan to buy them as a subsidiary of our group. Since my company has been using quite a lot of money recently, I don’t have much money for you to spend.”
“90 million should be enough, right?” she asked.
She looked at the document that predicted the acquisition price to be around 90 to 140 million.
“What the hell? Where did you get so much money from?”
“Carl gave it to me.”
Charles sighed in envy. “I didn’t expect that a male model would earn this much. If I’m ever bankrupt in the future, I’ll become a male model too.”
Sonia replied in annoyance, “You? If you really become a male model, I bet you can’t even earn a hundred thousand.”
“Alright, alright. I know that you think everyone else is better looking than me.” He clucked his tongue. “I’m actually quite curious about something—Zane has actually asked other people to acquire Continental Co. Why doesn’t he do it himself and instead pass the information to you?”
Charles added, “Seeing how well he treats you, has he fallen head over heels for you?”
Upon hearing that, Sonia was speechless. She had enough of his nonsense and decisively hung up the phone.
Not long after, he texted her again. ‘Baby, today is my birthday. In the past, you said that you’d be busy once you’re married, so you don’t have time to celebrate it with me. Now that you are divorced, you’re still not free?’
As Sonia had been quite busy with work recently, apart from work-related matters, she did not have the time to care about other things.
If Charles had not reminded her, she would have forgotten about his birthday.
She smiled and replied, ‘Of course I remember about it. I have already booked a place to celebrate it with you at the Luna Club. I’ll select the most expensive present later!’
Since he had helped her out quite a lot, she also wanted to thank him.
Charles replied, ‘Tsk! It seems like I have to thank Toby for the divorce. Otherwise, you won’t have time to celebrate my birthday too.”
Sonia was speechless upon seeing that.
After she settled the remainder of her work, she left the office and prepared to buy a watch for him as a present.
It was a coincidence that the saleswoman who had previously served was working today and she enthusiastically greeted Sonia. “Mrs. Fuller, it’s been so long.”
Sonia merely smiled and openly responded, “President Fuller and I are already divorced. You can address me as ‘Miss Reed’ next time.”
“I’m sorry about that, Miss Reed. I was previously abroad for studies and only returned a few days ago, so I haven’t been keeping up with the news,” the saleswoman quickly explained.
“No worries about it. It’s my friend’s birthday today and I want to give him a watch as a present. Do you have any recommendations?”
When the saleswoman saw that Sonia was not angry about her faux pas, she quietly heaved a sigh of relief and picked a few watches to recommend them to Sonia.
The watches were from the same series and they looked quite decent.
Even though Sonia was picking a present for Charles, she couldn’t help but think that Toby would also look great in those watches when she looked at them.
However, in the course of the many years of their marriage, she had bought so many watches for him that she became the VVIP customer of this store. However, Tyler had never worn anything that she bought for him.
While she was lost in her thoughts as she looked at the leather-bound wrist watch, she heard a familiar voice just as she was about to take it.
“This looks quite good. Please explain more about it to me.”
Sonia turned around and saw Tina standing next to her with her friend. They were holding a few shopping bags in their hands and it looked like they had just done some shopping.
Tina had a slight smile on her face, but when she learned that Sonia was looking at the watches as well, her smile froze.
She politely greeted Tina, “Hello, Miss Gray. What a coincidence.”
“Indeed.” Tina tightly clenched the shopping bags with a smile. “Are you here to buy a watch for your boyfriend?”
Sonia hummed in agreement and ignored her.
Just as Sonia wanted to ask the saleswoman to wrap the watch as a gift, Tina was one step ahead and pointed at the watch as she spoke, “I want to buy this watch. Please wrap it up for me.”
With that, she turned around and smiled at Sonia. “I just think that Toby would look great with this watch. Don’t tell me that you are also planning to buy it?”
