Mission To Remarry Novel Chapter 228 – “I didn’t ask for your help.”
After a longmoment, Roxanne finally broke the silence, but her tone still sounded as distant as ever.
Lucian frowned slightly at that, and displeasure filled the look in his eyes. “Is that so? if I didn’t help you just now,
how did you plan to get yourself out of that situation?” Roxanne lowered her gaze. “I am a doctor. I’ll come up with a way eventually.”
Having studied acupuncture for so many years, Roxanne knew which acupuncture points could make someone instantly lose the energy to attack but not lethal enough to kill them.
If the doctor dared to get any closer to her, Roxanne would not hesitate to let him learn the brutal way about the gap between their medical knowledge.
However, before she could make a move, Lucian had already appeared before them.
Hearing that, Lucian immediately understood the implication behind her words. Back when Roxanne was performing acupuncture on Alfred, Lucian had
watched her from one side, so he was aware of just how knowledgeable she was with human acupuncture points.
It was certainly enough to show that Roxanne had the ability to defend herself. Thinking of this, Lucian could not help but feel more relieved. However, Lucian was still upset to see her indifferent expression toward him.
In that case, can I assume you’re seeing me as a busybody meddling in your affairs, Ms. Jarvis?” Roxanne fell silent and continued staring at him.
Despite her silence, her expression was enough to tell him the answer to his question, the first time Lucian was seen as nosy for helping someone out of kindness.
“Regardless, I still helped you.” Roxanne did not want to waste more time on this conversation.
She frowned and said sarcastically, “Thank you, Mr. Farwell, for helping me. I should really get going.
Since you’re here for business, I’m sure someone is waiting for you too. Shouldn’t you return now?”
With that she nodded at him and was about to head back to her private room with her colleagues when he grabbed her wrist.
Pers Perhaps it was the alcohol because Roxanne felt that all of her emotions were magnified at that moment.”
She was suddenly triggered by his action. “What on earth are you doing? I’ve thanked you. What else do you want from me?”
she snapped. Six years ago, when she was still madly in love with him, he had hurt her so much.
Yet, now that she was determined to stay away from him and return to being strangers, he refused to leave her alone.
Roxanne could not read through his mind, and she was no longer interested in guessing his intentions.
She wanted nothing but to stay away from him as far as possible, However, Lucian refused to let that happen.
At the same time, Lucian had no idea what he was doing. When he regained his senses again, he noticed he had already grabbed her slender wrist.
Taking in her furious expression, he knitted his brows. “Is that how you treat a person who has helped you?
Why are you in such a hurry to return to your private room? Is there someone you care about a lot waiting for you?”
Roxanne found his accusation unreasonable. “What does that have to do with you? Let go of me!”
Despite her protest, Lucian exerted more strength into his grip instead. Roxanne was in pain, and her expression changed a little.
Sure enough, Lucian captured every change in her expression, but he did not soften his grasp around her wrist, and he took a step forward.
Roxanne narrowed her eyes and tensed up at his sudden advancement. Lucian chuckled meaningfully.
He exuded a suppressive aura as he stared at Roxanne. “Ms. Jarvis, even if you think of me as a busybody and refuse to thank me for helping you.
I still risked losing out on a business opportunity by keeping my client waiting for me for such a long time inside the private room.
So, Ms. Jarvis, is there any way you can think of to compensate me for my losses?” Roxanne frowned and met his gaze.
She refused to believe there would be someone bold enough to refuse to seal a business deal with the Farwell family.
This was only Lucian’s excuse, and she was aware of that. However, since he had already voiced out about this, she refused to owe him anything.
