Chapter 26

Standing beside the car, Sonia talked on the phone in the cold wind. She felt a little dizzy, and her feet swayed.

Toby’s gaze darkened, then he calmly took the phone from Sonia’s hand and hung up before picking her up and walking to the other side of the car.

Being lifted into the air all of a sudden,

Sonia was shocked, and the umbrella

nearly flew out of her hand. She panicked


and grabbed the man’s shirt with one hand

as her face grew slightly cold.


“Toby, let me down!”

Ignoring herToby opened the passenger

door and stuffed her into the car.

*President Fuller, are you done creating trouble?” Watching as the man tugged on her seatbelt, Sonia snapped coldly, “I can find a driver. You don’t need to care about


During their six years of marriage, Toby never cared about her. The two had only had handful of conversations. But, after their divorce, she and Toby had met several times in just a few days.

When did Seafield become so small?

Toby noticed the discomfort and

stubborness on her faceand annoyance

filled his heart. “The weather is so bad. Even if you order for a substitute driver, no

One will take vour order.”

“It’s my business whether I get one or not.”

“Sonia.” Toby leaned closer to her. His cold breath enveloped her, and his eyes were cold and sullen. “Do you have to be so stubborn?”

There wasn’t much space in the car, so Sonia had nowhere to hide when he approached her.

Her face grew chilly. She was about to speak, but she accidentally glanced behind the man’s back and found that he couldn’t

hold the umbrella when he carried her into

the car. It was raining heavily outside, so

most of his back was wet.

Sonia’s heart gave a fierce shudder, and

the words she was about to say died in her

mouth as she quickly looked awav.

Toby cast her a glance before continuing to pull the seat belt across her. However,

because he was too close, his fingers accidentally rubbed against her heaving


Both of them froze.

Sonia was the first to react. She pulled the seat belt from his hand and inserted it into

the buckle.

Toby’s Adam’s apple bobbed. I’m sorry.”

“It’s okay. I know you didn’t mean to do it, President Fuller.” Sonia thought about

what Chester said when they were playing

cards just now, and she couldn’t help but

taunt him. “President Fuller, you’re a rare

‘saint” that’s only seen once every thousand vears!”

Met with the woman’s cold remarks, Toby frowned, but he quickly got into the driver’s

seat and started the engine.

Toby asked, “Where do you live?”

“Bayside Residence,” Sonia answered stonily, then looked out the window and

rested her chin on her hands.

Neither of them spoke again. Silence filled the car, the only sound was the slight swiping of the wipers.

Sonia had been exposed to the rain, so she

was feeling very uncomfortable.

Now that the heater was blowing hot wind,

the cold was replaced with heat. After a

while, she grew groggy and fell asleep in

the car.

They soon arrived at Bayside Residence, but Toby didn’t know which building Sonia

lived in. Seeing how flushed her face was, he figured she had caught a cold, so he looked for a drugstore along the road and got down to buy a box of flu medicine.

“Sonia.” Toby patted the woman on the cheek. “Have some flu medicine.”

After calling her several times, Sonia still didn’t respond, but she coughed a few times. Hence, he took the medicine, then

pinched her jaw and forced the medicine

into her mouth.

Sonia’s lips were a bit cold, but very soft. It

felt a little seductive, which made it

difficult for Toby to control himself as he

plunged deeper in.

All of a sudden, the phone on the car’s ammest vibrated.

Toby returned to his senses. His eyes

scanned over Sonia‘s slightly swollen lips,

whereupon he realized what he had just

done. His eyebrows twitched, then he

answered the phone.

“Toby, have you finished discussing the collaboration?” Tina’s soft voice sounded from the other end of the phone.


*Then come to the Outlet Mall to pick me

and your mom up.” Tina said. “Madam

White and I went shopping, but it suddenly

started raining heavily. The driver went to

school to fetch Tyler. He can’t make it, so I

called you.”

Toby glanced at Sonia in the passenger

seat, then replied in a low volce, “Okay. I’ll

be there in 15 minutes.”

“Be careful on the road.”

There was a faint fragrance in the car, which was the smell of the perfume Sonia

usually used. The more Toby smelled it, the more troubled he felt.

Taking an umbrella, he got out of the car

and called Tom to inform him that he was

at the south entrance of Bayside


About five minutes later, Tom arrived.

“President Fuller.” Tom came over with some clothes. He was a little surprised to See Toby standing beside the car, then he

took a look at the car behind him.

Hey, isn‘t that Miss Reed‘s car?

Toby took the clothes and the car keys, then glanced at the car behind him with a

knowing gaze. “Drive her car and bring her to the Sheraton Hotel, then ask the

attendant to take her temperature.”

“Okay.” Tom replied without asking any


Toby drove to the Outlet Mall, occasionally

thinking of Sonia’s stubborn appearance

and her soft lips, which disturbed him,

He lowered the windows of the car slightly and he felt better after being caressed by the cold wind.

After arriving at the Outlet Mall, Toby quickly spotted Tina and Jean standing at the entrance, both carrying several

shopping bags.

He took an umbrella and got out of the car, then hurriedly walked over. “It’s so cold. Why didn’t you wait inside?”

Upon seeing him approach, a slight smile

appeared at the comers of Tinalips.

“Madam White and I just came out, and

Surprisingly, you arrived at the same time.”

Reside her. Jean Snickered, “Who said we

just came out? Tina knew that you were

coming, so she wanted to come out to

wait for you! Don’t look at what she bought. All she bought for herself was a coat. The rest are clothes for you.”

“Madam White.” Tina blushed little after being exposed. “If you say anything more, Toby will think I’m not reserved at all.”

“Oh, we’re all family. Why are you still being so polite and calling me Madam White?”
