Chapter 435: He Couldn’t See Through Her
Sawyer’s condition was more stable. The doctor concluded that he would definitely wake up tomorrow
night at the earliest, and the morning after tomorrow at the latest.
Emily felt relieved.
That night, she made an excuse and left the hospital. But she didn’t go back to the Gale’s house.
She went to another place.
The door of the room was actually no different from a normal top-grade suite.
However, it seemed to be chilling, perhaps because it was his room.
Emily knocked on the door. It was Liam who opened the door.
Liam didn’t seem to be surprised at all.
Emily had to suppose that they knew her whereabouts well all the time.
Liam’s expression was unacceptable for Emily.
She wondered if they knew she was coming.
Emily felt a stronger bitterness, but there was nothing she could do about it.
“Miss Emily, you are here.” Sure enough, Liam didn’t hide that he knew she would come.
“Why do you know I would come here?” Emily frowned, still unhappy.
She believed that her two cousins, Francis and Joseph, would never expose her whereabouts.
Moreover, they had no idea that she would come here.
If they knew, they would definitely stop her.
“Nothing. Young Master Hunter guessed that you would come.”
Liam smiled and opened the door.
Emily took a deep breath and walked in.
Liam did not say a word and left.
The moment the door was closed behind her, for some reason, she suddenly felt that she returned to
the gilded cage.
Emily stood behind the door, staring at the man and clenching her fists tightly. He was sitting on the
sofa and drinking wine.
Hunter didn’t even look up as he poured himself a glass of wine while reading some files.
Emily did not know how long she had been looking at him. Both of them kept silence, and the air in the
room became even gloomier.
After a long while, Emily took a deep breath and walked towards him.
“Young Master Hunter, can I have a talk with you?”
“Do you think you can enter my room if I don’t agree to talk with you?”
Hunter still did not look up. He finished reading the files and threw them aside, and then he poured
himself a glass of wine.
When he was drinking, he leaned against the sofa and glanced at her indifferently.
He was indifferent, but at the very least, he gave her the chance to speak.
After all, he “agreed” to let her in, didn’t he?
“Why did you tell Joseph that you want me in exchange?”
Hunter’s indifference suddenly diverted Emily from what she was thinking before entering the room.
Hunter picked up the glass and looked at her indifferently.
This kind of gaze sank Emily into slight unease.
She never was able to see through this man’s thoughts. She never was able to guess what he was
When she thought that she knew him well enough, maybe she was just cheating herself.
“Young Master Hunter, what exactly do you want?”
“I want you.” Hunter’s indifference almost drove Emily crazy.
He smiled, “Didn’t I say it clearly?”
Emily did not know if he was serious.
“I don’t think I deserve this.”
After all, their agreement hadn’t come to an end. If he really wanted her, she couldn’t resist.
What was the point of him doing this?
“I said I want you.” Hunter was not joking at all.
However, his next words made Emily felt chill to the bone.
“I have only one request. The Gale family should send you to me personally.”
“Hunter Jackson!” Emily clenched her fists tightly and immediately understood his intention. “You want
to humiliate the Gale family!”
“Looks like you’re not stupid.” In front of her, Hunter had no intention of hiding anything.
His smile chilled Emily.
She clenched her fists and trembled. She asked, “Why?”
“You don’t need to know the reason.”
“So, even if I tell you that I will be back with you, you won’t give the Gale family a helping hand, right?”
It wasn’t that she didn’t want her self-esteem, but she knew that Joseph had really done his best.
The Gale family was in a dangerous situation under Wendy’s leadership.
In any case, Emily thought that she was already defeated enough, so it didn’t matter if she was sent to
Hunter to be humiliated.
However, what he wanted to humiliate now was not her, but the whole Gale family.
She wouldn’t allow it!
“I won’t make the Gale family get into such a state. I won’t give you the satisfaction!”
If grandpa was humiliated, he would probably not be able to survive in his condition.
She didn’t know the deep hatred between Hunter and the Gale family, but the most important thing for
her now was that her grandpa got better!
Emily turned around and was about to leave.
Unexpectedly, before she could leave the room in the hotel, a strong and tall figure flashed in front of
her, and then Hunter stood between her and the door. She even didn’t have the chance to touch the
“Get away!” Emily’s face darkened.
Hunter snorted coldly, “What do you want to do?”
“It’s none of your business.” No matter what she wanted to do, her purpose was to make sure that
nothing would happen to the Gale Group and grandpa!
As for her, she no longer cared about the so-called future!
“What exactly do you want to do?” Hunter narrowed his eyes and suddenly grabbed her wrist.
“Do you want to fight me?” Hunter asked coldly.
“I don’t have the guts,” Emily sneered, looking up at his cold eyes.
“I’m not in the position to fight you, do I?”
“Since you know that, don’t try to do anything to anger me!”
He didn’t know why her despondent appearance made him somewhat flustered.
However, Emily had despaired of him.
“I didn’t want to anger you.” Her voice was very calm. It wasn’t that cold, but it just had no emotion.
She didn’t even show any signs of disappointment.
When you had no hope on him, you had no disappointment.
Disappointment didn’t exist.
“Excuse me, Young Master Hunter, I have to leave now.”
Hunter did not say anything, but he stared coldly at her face.
At this moment, he couldn’t see through her at all.
He didn’t like this feeling, and he had to see through her! He had to know what exactly she wanted to
“Young Master Hunter, you’ve pushed me away since you asked someone to change the hair samples
of me and my grandpa. Right now, all I want to do is my own business. I don’t think it has anything to
do with you.”
“I won’t let you go, unless you tell me what exactly you want to do”
The uneasiness that came from the depths of his heart irritated Him.
However, Emily was still as peaceful as quiet water.
She shook her head and smiled, “Since it’s useless to beg you, I can only find a way by myself. Don’t
worry. I won’t involve you in everything I do.”
