Mr. Kane Got Blacklisted

Mr. Kane Got Blacklisted By Eleven Jewell Chapter 22

Chapter 22

Stella’s throbbing heart stopped when she heard the cold voice. ‘Alas, the pretty image I have of that jerk gets destroyed whenever he opens his mouth.”

Stella went up to Keegan reluctantly and whispered, “That’s the white truffle. You promised me.” When Keegan heard that, his gaze shifted from the documents to her face. She looked plain and beautiful, which was pleasing to the eyes; the same as she had always been. However, Keegan knew that it was all an act. She was no longer the obedient little bunny she was before. Instead, she was a wildcat with her claws out, and she was not afraid to bite back at the slightest provocation.

Keegan leaned back and narrowed his eyes. He looked a little bored as he raised his eyebrows and said, ” Oh? Did I promise you anything?”

Stella was taken aback for a moment. She could not believe that he had forgotten. “You promised to help me deliver this if I went with you to meet your sister!” She gritted her teeth and said. “Hmm. I did say that, didn’t I?” Keegan replied as if he recalled the matter. Stella was about to let out a sigh of relief when he continued, “But, after some careful consideration, I think there’s no reason for me to accept such a valuable gift from the Jewell family since we are getting divorced. We should just forget it.

Stella was speechless. “It’s not THAT valuable,” she tried to convince him. “Besides, we’re breaking up on good terms. Our family can still get along and occasionally give each other gifts, right?”

“Are we really breaking up on good terms, though? Didn’t you want a divorce because you weren’t satisfied with MY infertility?” Keegan sneered.

Stella was at a loss for words once again. I guess there’s no moving past this. This asshole’s self–esteem is so sensitive. I just said it out of spite, but he’s being so petty. Just as she was about to try and defend herself, Keegan spoke. “The hospital called me this morning and asked what kind of dysfunction I was experiencing. Why didn’t you tell them?”

Stella stayed silent. ‘I totally forgot I called the hospital for a checkup on Keegan’s behalf when I was mad. Of all the days they could’ve called him, why today? How am I going to explain myself?‘ She thought.

“Can we talk about something else first, Mr. Kane?” Stella chuckled. Keegan got up and walked around his desk. He sat on the desk, looked up at her with a half–smile, and said, “What is it that makes my wife so dissatisfied that she had to help me consult an expert?”
