Chapter 470The more dependent on him she got, the more likely it was that it might slowly and gradually become a habit of hers to always rely on him..He leaned down and gently kissed her red and swollen face. The kiss was so soft and tender that it felt like a feather playfully Lickling her …
Obsessive CEO’s Sinful Wife By Lil’ Bamboo
Chapter 469 Demetria thought of how she had always been highly regarded in the elite circle. She had never been treated with such ridicule before. “I won’t let this slide,” she declared. “I must teach that woman, Serenity Lewis, a lesson! She must’ve run to fackson and whispered horrible things about me in his ear! He has never treated me this way before!” Demetria was determined to push all blame on Serenity, “That’s enough!” Quinton reminded her. “From now on, don’t ever mess with Serenity Lewis again! Let it and here and now!” Demetria stared at her husband in disbelief. “What?! But that woman is the murderer that killed our daughter!” A look of conflicted feelings flashed across Quinton’s eyes. He turned away as if deliberately avoiding his wife’s eye contact. “If you don’t want the whole Hall family to follow Mira into the grave, just do as I say!” Demetria seemed to have more to say, but jenny pulled her aside and told her, “ust listen to Dad this time, Mam. At the very least, we should leave Serenity alone for now.” There was no saying when Serenity’s back would run out and Jackson finally lost his interest in her. Demetria seemed obviously reluctant to let the matter go. Did she really have to allow Jackson to slap her without doing anything about it?! Serenity Lewas should have just rotted in prison! Back in the Valor Residence living room, Serenity finally came down the staircase. She had been standing behind the stairs where she was perfectly concealed. She had seen everything that had just happened in the living room and heard every word that was sald She knew that Jack had done everything to help her just now. All the humiliation she had suffered this morning had gradually dissipated as she listened to the words he had said to defend her. The sound of her footsteps made him turn his head quickly toward the staircase. He then slowly reached out his hands toward her. His movements were so natural that it seemed he would always reach out to help and support her wherever he saw her. serenity stared dazedly at the hands that were reaching out for her, but she instinctively reached her own hands out to take his. His big hands then fully wrapped around her own hands tightly “What are you doing coming downstairs?” he asked. “1” she bit her lips gently. “I was behind the stairs just now and I saw everything. Thank you. But you didn’t have to go against the Hall family just for me, you know.” Even she knew that there was a lot of business conducted between the Hall fanally and the Valor family. Although the Halls were not nearly as powerful as the Valors, a dispute with them would still affect the Valors to some extent. “So what if the Valors‘ relationship with the Halls is completely nained?” He smiled. “If I can’t manage even this little problem and get justice for you over this small matter, I must be the lousiest boyfriend ever.” As he spoke, he slowly lifted a hand to gently caress the red and swollen spots on Serenity’s face “But that one slap just now was far from enough,” he said. She was taken aback. What else was he going to do? Whom she asked him that question, all she gut as an answer from him was, soon enough. Also, if you’re ever in any kind of trouble again, just give me a call, understand?” “You’ll As he gave that order, she could not help pouting as she said, “But if you keep on acting this way, ‘ll only make me more and more dependent on you”
Chapter 468 Regardless, Quanton remained composed and hid his true feelings. “That’s unnecessary.” Jackson said in a flat voer. “I don’t think she has any desire to see you.” Jenny and Demetria instantly sighed in rebel To them, not having to apologize to that woman in person would mean that they were spared a humiliating situation. After all, how could they accept being forced to apologize to a woman they regarded as nothing more than a dirty bug? Especially since she was a murderer in their eyes, and to Jenny, she was even once a love rival to her. However, Quinton did not seem to feel relieved at all. In fact, be frowned even more. An ominous premonition arose in his heart. He feared that this matter was not as simple as he thought “In that case,” said Quinton, “we won’t be disturbing you anymore. It’s time for us to leave.” He then gave his wife a look to unge her that it was time to go. Only then did Demetria get up to get ready to leave, but they were soon interrupted by Jackson’s voice again. “By the way,” he told them, “you have to pay for what you owe her before you leave.” what we owe her?” Demetria asked, confring: Britten all over her face. She had no clue what Jackson meant at all. “You slapped Serenity a few times,” replied Jackson matter–of–factly, so just slap yourself to pay for it.” Although Jackson said it so naturally as if it was perfectly logical thing to say, a burst of fury welled up in Demetria’s heart. He wanted her to slap herself?! Just because she had slapped Serenity a few times? “I don’t owe her anything!” she snapped. “That woman deserved to get slapped a few times! In fact, I was too easy on her backtben!” Jackson’s face darkened thunderously. He then immediately sprang up on his feet and rushed up to Demetria before slapping her to the point she stumbled and tell to the Door No one could have seen it coming as no one would have thought that Jackson would suddenly do such a thing Demetria was the most befuddled one of the lot. She held her face which had just been struck, and she looked utterly dumbfounded Jackson peered down at Demetria with a cold glare and said, “What right do you have to slap her? The Hall family has absolutely no right to touch her at all! From now on, if you dare to touch even a strand of her hair, don’t blame a for annihilating your family without any mercy.” ” Those words were indeed severe. Even Quinton and Jenny were stunned. They both seemed to love something to say, but Jackson seemed to have already issued an order to send the guests off Chilton sighted and decided to take his wife and daughter out of the property. If they continued to remain there even a minute longer, who knew how much more angered Jackson would become. Jenny asked him as soon as they got out of the Valor besidence, “Are we just going to leave things like this, Dad?” Quinton shook his head with a gloomy expression and replied, “I’m afraid so.. Tooks like we’ll just have to end it here.” He had been totally taken aback by Jackson’s sudden violent attack just now. A man like Jackson Valor would usually never use his own hands to do such a thing, but he had slapped Demetria himself just now. This proved how furious he truly was. And how far would a man like him go if he was truly ennapet? Even Quintor Hensell sluddered to think about it. Only then did Demetria come back to her senses, She stricked, “H–How dare he hit me?! He’s younger than me Has he completely forgotten about Mira?! That woman, Serenity Lewis, is nothing compared to my daughter! She was even in prison! How could Jackson Valor want a woman like that? Is he not worried about humiliating the Valor family?!” When she thought of how Jackson slapped her just now, Demetria was filled with extreme humiliation.
Chapter 467 Quinton and Demetria Hall had completely lost the previous haughtiness they had displayed with Serenity when they acted as if they could easily step all over her. But now, it was their tum to be the worthless bugs! Jenny, being a professional actress, was now the one who could best conceal her real feelings among the three of them. She put on a guilty look and said, “Jackson, my parents bumped into Seren–Miss Lewis at the mall today, and they lost their temper and treated her a little too aggressively, so we came here to apologize to her and ask for her forgiveness in person.” It was hard for Jenny to utter the words “Miss Lewis, After all, she had always despised that woman. Serenity was as worthless to her, yet she had to face herself to address this won respectfully now. It felt as if her dignity was being trampled on! “Really?” asked Jackson calmly. His deep dark eyes were unfathomable No one could tell what he was really feeling inside.” They lost their temper, huh? Why don’t you tell me what she did to make them lose their temper?” Unpredictable. That was how people always described Jackson Valor, the emperor of Solaria. There were not even a handful of people in this city who could truly guess what was actually on his mind. But Jackson! Demetria blurted out in an accusing tone. “She.. She’s the murderer who killed Mira! How could we not lose dun temper? Back then, it was she who had cased Mira’s death! How.. How could you be with a woman the that?! Mira will never rest in peace if you do this!!! As she spoke those last sentences, both Quinton and Jenny’s looks changed. They wanted to stop Demetris from continuing. but it was too late. Their eyes then turned to jackson, whose face had already darkened. Their hearts sank because they knew that it was a grave mistake to have said those words. Quinton, who had always been a sly fox in the world of business, was better at reading the situation than the other two. A man like Jackson Valor would certainly believe that it was his complete freedom to be with any woman he liked, and it had nothing to do with the fact that he used to be engaged to Mira Hallat all. In fact, even if he was tried to Mira, it was still his right to be with any wornan he liked, and Quinton and Demetria had no power to do anything about it. Just as he expected, Jackson glared coldly at Demetria and demanded, “When did you have any say in who I want to be with?” Demetria shuddered. She instantly regained her senses and malized what an impulsive thing she had just done! She should never have said those things, yet how could she not? How could she just accept the fact that the woman who had killed her daughter was now with the man her daughter was supposed to marry?! Gritting her teeth, Demetria once again asked, ‘Don’t you remember how much Mira used to love you, Jackson? Are you really going to disregard her now?! If you really end up with that murderer, Mira will turn into a joke in the eyes of the public! “That’s mough,” Jackson sneered. “Stop calling her a murderer. She’s not a murderer, and she had absolutely nothing to do with Mira Hall’s death!” As soon as he uttered those words, Quinton and jenny both stared at Jackson in shock. “How could that be?! yelled Demetria. “Even the court convicted her back then!‘ A cryptic half–smile cropped up on Jackson’s face. His gaze turned to Quinton, who was standing beside Demetrial “I said she had nothing to do with it,” he declared, “so it means that she had nothing to do with it, do you understand? From now on, I don’t want to hear any of you call her a murderer ever again.” Quinton’s face turned pale instantly. Even his bigs trembled slightly. Demetria seemed to have mure to say, but quinton quickly pulled her ashle and stopped her. “Yes,” he told Jackson, “we understand, Could you let Miss Lewis see us for a whille sa we can apologize to her for what we did today?! Quinton had been in business for many years, so he naturally understood the true wisdom of being flexible. Although the Hall family was one of the most prestigious families in Selaria, they were absolutely in no position to go head–to–head against such a powerful family as the Valors. So, the best thing to do at the moment was to give in to Jackson, Besides, there was still something else.. When Quinton thought of what happened all those years ago, he was suddenly washed over by a conflicted max of feeling.
Chapter 466 “Don’t worry. I’ve already had the video deleted. The video hasn’t been on the internet for long. It won’t resurface again, Jackson promised, his finger tracing the swollen bruise on her check Serenity let out a whimper and drew in a sharp gasp Jackson’s face grew colder. “I’ll get the doctor here.” “It’s fine. I’ll get a cold compress to treat it later,” Serenity refused. “Don’t make me worry. Let the doctor take a look at it,” Jackson urged. “Alright, I’ve decided. Did the security guards at the mall hurt you? Are you hurt? “I’m fine. I didn’t get hurt elsewhere,” Serenity tried to play it down, not wanting Jackson to worry. “Oh, right. By the way, I- I’m visiting Granny tomorrow. I went out to get something for Granny, but I couldn’t buy anything. Why don’t you come shopping with me after dinner tonight?” Serenity deliberately changed the topic. Jackson gave her a deep look. A long moment later, he finally responded with a single syllable, “Sure.” Just then, there was a knock on the bedroom door. Jackson unlocked the door and opened it to reveal the butler, Elliot, standing in front of the door. “Sir, the people from the Hall family are here,” Elliot informed. “The Hall family?” Jackson repeated, an unsmiling look flashing through his eyes. Serenity stiffened at what she had just heard, her face paling at the mention of the Hall family’s visit. “Yes. Mr. and Mrs. Hall as well as their daughter, Jenny Hall,” Elliot said. “They said they must see you no matter what, Sir.” “I’ll meet them,” Jackson answered “Understood. I’ll make the arrangements, then,” Elliot said and left quickly. Jackson returned to Serenity and said softly, “I’ll talk to them. Wait for me here. I’ll be back soon.” Serenity remained stiff and looked at him with a confused look in her eyes. She seemed puzzled. Jackson traced his finger along her bruised cheek. “I must seek justice for you” After saying that, Jackson left the room in a stride. Serenity remained as still as a statue until Jackson’s figure disappeared from her view. Only then did she lift her hand in a trance and touch her face, feeling the lingering warmth of his touch earlier. What did he mean by that? Seek justice for her… Would he help her in seeking justice on her behalf? She felt a surge of emotion at his promise, a warmth radiating through her heart! When Jackson came downstairs, the Hall family was already waiting in the living room.
Chapter 465 No one answered ham in the ro Jackson spun around and headed straight to his room instead. He then entered Serenity’s room through the inner door that connected the two rooms. Serenity’s room was dark, and the lights were off. Jackson glanced around in the semi–darkness, relying on the faint sunlight shining through the curtains. Although dim, it did not affect his vision. Jackson soon found Serenity in the corner of the room, sitting curled up. She had wrapped her arms around her knees and buried her face in it. She seemed like she was trying to curl into a ball. Jackson vaguely remembered seving her hiding in a corner with a similar posture some time ago. At the thought of this, a sudden pain stabbed at him, just below his heart. The scenario from the video he had seen just moments before flashed across his mind. In the video, Serenity had gotten slapped in the face and then escorted out of the mall. The video had been recorded from a distance, too far away to hear the conversation Even so, Jackson could more or less guess what the Hall family would have said to her. Jackson’s eyes flashed with anger. His anger was mostly directed at the Hall family and at himself. He should have warned the Hall family earlier. They should not have attacked her! She did not have to endure such humiliation. Serenity. Jackson crouched down slowly and called her name softly. Serenity remained in the same position, motionless, as if frozen in time. “Serenity…” Jackson raised his voice slightly. “I’ll be by your side no matter what.” Serenity trembled slightly. Her shoulders moved, and she looked up slowly. Her face was pale, her eyes red and swollen. Jackson could see the obvious marks on her pink lips. He could only imagine how hard she had bitten her own lips. “Were you crying?” Jackson asked, his finger gently tracing her red eyes. Serenity stiffened slightly. Then, she tried her best to manage a smile. “L. I wasn’t mying 1-1 was just tired and resting by the wall” Jackson held his gaze on Serenity. He wondered if she realized what a terrible liar she was. She somehow managed a smile, but the cut on her lips made that motion sting Boe bell “I know everything,” Jackson lushed. He wanted to see her happy smile, not this. The forced smile on her face broke his heart even more. “You don’t have to force yourself to smile like that,” Jackson said, picking her up in his arms. Jackson took her to the couch and sat her down. He then carefully observed her limbs and exposed skin. He did not see any other injuries except for the bruises on her face. Serenity was still stunned at his words earlier. He knows everything.” What did he mean by that? Slaskud, “What do you know? “I know what happened earlier,” Jackson explained. “Someone took a vicen of the scene and posted it online,” Sermity stiffened and bit down on her lower lip Serenity had made up her mind to get over the humiliation and stop thildegg about it. However, someone had filmed the incident earlier and pasted the video online. The feeling of humiliation seemed to multiply, overwhelming her. What had she cone to deserve this? She had done nothing wrong! Why did she have to suffer needlessly?!
Chapter 464 Jackson’s how furrowed as soon as he heard the news. He took the phone from Connor and played the video, liis eyes cold. Jackson soon exuded an air of quiet fury, Connor knew that his boss‘ anger was not directed at him, but the fury in Jackson’s eyes was so icy that he thought he might freeze to death, Mr. Valer’s wrath could rock the whole of Solaria, Serenity was Mr. Valor’s precious person, and he would never let anyone hurt Serenity. The Hall family had made their move on Ms. Lewis, humiliating her in public. Not only that but there was a video filmed and posted online. “Remove this viden from the internet! Don’t let the see it online ever again!” Jackson ordered. “Also, find the person who took the video and get the original file deleted permanently.” “Understood.” Cenaar responded. Jackson threw the phone back at Connor. Then, he grabbed his jacket and beaded out of his office. Connor did not have to ask. He knew Mr. Valor was on his way to see Ms. Lewis. Connor had been working with Mr. Valor for years, and Serenity seemed to be the only person who could affect Mr. Valor this much. Fate would always intervene in such a strange way. Who would have thought that Mr. Valor would fall for Serenity? The Hall family would never have thought of this. They probably would not have hurt Serenity if they had known,‘ Connor thought to himself. Jackson drove away from the office. As he was on the way home, he dialed Serenity’s phone number. However, no one answered, and it made him even more andous. He then called the butler in the Valor Residence and asked about Serenity, “Ms. Lewis went out in the morning and returned around noon, but she didn’t have lunch and went straight to her room. She hasn’t come out since,” Elliot, the butler, answered “Make sure to keep an eye on her!” Jackson hastily ordered and ended the call. Then, he sped up and rushed home. When he arrived at Valor Residence, he dashed out of the car and ran to Serenity’s room, startling the servants around. The servants had never seen Mr. Valor in such a hurry! He seemed worried about something, but what could possibly worry Mr. Valor, the most powerful man in Solaria? Elliot was standing in front of Serenity’s room, guarding her. When he saw Jackson, he reported, “Sir, Ms. Lewis is in her room. I knocked, but she wouldn’t open the door. The door was locked from the inside.” As the butler, Elliot had the log to the door. However, he would not use it unless permitted. He dared not open Ms. Lewis‘ bedroom door without Jackson’s order. Jackson dismissed Elliot with a wave of the hand. “You may leave now.” “The key to the room..” “It’s fine,” Jackson said. Elliot then left, and Jackson lifted his hand as he gently knocked on the door. “Sereally, it’s me.”
Demetria was confused and finally noticed the grave look on Jenny’s face. “Jenny? What nonsense are you talking about? Apologize? Are you telling me to apologize to Serenity? That’s impossible! She’s lucky I didn’t smash her in the face! Why do you want me to apologize?!” “You two must apologize now before it’s too late!” Jenny took out her phone, but her mother took the phone away before she could ring her father. “What the hell is going on? Let’s get this straight.” Demetria’s eyes locked on Jenny. Jenny took a deep breath. “Mom, Serenity has Jackson’s support. We can’t afford to mess with the Valor family! Demetria’s expression changed from confusion to a look that was full of shock. “How can that be? Are you ladding me?!* “I wish I was kidding, but it’s true!” Jenny rasped. “Remember Joy Show? Didn’t you ask about her leg before? Why Joy healed for so long and how she got hurt?” hadn’t Demetria’s nerves tingled at the grave look on Jenny’s face. She had a feeling that the answer was not what she wanted to hear. Even so, she still had to listen “Jackson had someone do it. Joy had hurt Serenity before, so Jackson helped Serenity return the favor. No. Rather, he made Joy pay back ten times more for hurting her!” Demeina froze in place, dumbfounded. Her knees felt dangerously weak as Jenny mentioned Jackson’s name, and she nearly fell Jackson Valor… Does Serenity have Jackson’s support?! But Jackson almost became my son–in–law before! Demetria thought. Demetria was once very proud of this. Surely everyone in Solaria would flatter her because of her status as Jackson’s mother–in -LAW Demetria had had the best time when Mira had become Jackson’s fiancee, but it was short–lived. Her eldest daughter had been engaged to Jackson, and she had almost become Jackson’s mother–in–law, but Mira’s death hat crushed her hopes. “How could Jackson take Serenity’s side?! Doesn’t he understand? Serenity is the one who got Mira killed!” Demetria suddenly yelled frantically. Jenny hurriedly grabbed her mother. He knows, but he’s got his eyes on Serenity. He likes her. Mom, calm down. Even if you don’t like it, we can’t interfere with Jackson’s choice!” Demetria understood this. She just could not keep her hatred restrained. ny did not have time to comfort her mother. Her first priority was to resche the situation before it was too late. Jackson might turn against the Hall family for this. Jenny took the phone away from her mother and quicldly called her father. Meshile, on the other side, Connor rushed into the CEO’s office upon finding out what had happened. “Mr. Valor, there’s a video online about Ms. Lewis… Would you like to ser lì?‘ Connor bestcated a little while saying this, worried about his boss‘ reaction upon seeing the video. As Jackson’s personal secretary, Connor knew of Serenity’s importance in Jackson’s heart. The actions of the Hall family had undoubtedly hurt Mr. Valor’s precious sweetheart.
Chapter 462A dangerous gleam flashed in Quinton’s eyes. “It’s not hard to pot someone like her back in prison. I’ll just get someone to do it.”Quinton spoke lightly, almost as if manipulating the fate of others was a very normal thingDemetria’s eyes lit up. She said through gritted teeth, “Let’s get her a life sentence …
Chapter 461“Seriously. Why are you doing this in public? How embarrassing!” quinton scowledDemetria was indignant. “I’m just mad at her. Did you hear what she just said? Isn’t that inhumane?! She killed Mira, yet she’s saying she didn’t hurt anyone!”Quinton shot a sharp glare at Serenity. “You’re out of prison now. Whether or not there’s …
