Charlie had a calm expression on his face as he faced Loreen’s sudden confession. He merely replied, “We just happened to meet a few scumbags, and that is why I decided to teach them a lesson. Don’t take it to heart.”
Loreen replied seriously, “No matter what it is, I would really like to thank you!”
After that, Loreen sat down beside Charlie and quickly stretched out her hands as she hugged him in her arms.
Both of them were wearing very little clothes, and Charlie could instantly feel Loreen’s smooth and tender skin rubbing against him.
Charlie’s body tightened immediately and he quickly said, “Loreen, don’t do this. I don’t want Claire to see us acting like this.”
Loreen chuckled before she asked, “Does that mean I can hug you and do whatever I want if Claire cannot see us?”
“That’s not what I mean…” Charlie replied helplessly.
Loreen hugged him a little tighter before she said stubbornly, “I want to hug you, and it would be best if Claire could see us acting like this now. After that, both of you can file for a divorce so that you can finally be with me instead!”
At this time, Charlie had a righteous expression on his face as he said, “How can you say something like that? You are Claire’s best friend!”
Loreen replied seriously, “I know that you and Claire did not get married for love! Claire only married you because her grandfather insisted on doing things his way. That was the only reason she agreed to marry you. I also know that both of you do not have a substantial relationship and have not even consummated your marriage, so how could you possibly call yourselves husband and wife?”
As she spoke about this, Loreen suddenly became very emotional. “Since both of you have no feelings for each other and since your marriage is just all for show, why don’t both of you just let each other go and set yourselves free? Seize the opportunity to get a divorce so that you can find your one true love instead! Isn’t that better for everyone else? The both of you will not be wasting each other’s time, then!”
Charlie waved his hand before he said, “You do not understand my feelings for Claire at all.”
Loreen asked, “Then, do you understand my feelings for you?”
Charlie nodded before he replied seriously, “I understand how you feel about me, but I am afraid that I cannot accept your feelings for me. I’m sorry.”
“Why?!” Loreen asked aggrievedly. “Why would you rather hold on to a loveless marriage instead of pursuing your true love?”
At this time, Charlie replied, “I have already made it very clear to you last time. The both of us are not suitable for one another at all. Even if I really end up divorcing Claire one day, both of us will never get together. What’s more, I do not have the slightest intention of divorcing Claire. Therefore, I feel that it is totally meaningless for you to continue wasting your time on me.”
Loreen snorted before she replied softly, “I am willing to waste my time on you! I am in love with you!”
Charlie could only reply helplessly, “You are just being stupid. Instead of wasting your time on someone like me, wouldn’t it be better for you to find a single man who has not been married and has no girlfriend yet so that you can start a serious relationship instead?”
Loreen’s big and sparkling eyes were filled with tears as she choked and sobbed, “Charlie, my heart already belongs to you. I have already fallen in love with you ever since you saved me the first time. After experiencing and going through so many ordeals with you, I am already hopelessly in love with you…”
Then, Loreen blushed as she said, “I even dreamt of you last night…”
“You dreamt about me?” Charlie asked in surprise. “What did you dream about me?”
Loreen replied, “I dreamt that both of us went back to the Thomas’ family mansion together and got married there. And then…”
“And then what?” Charlie asked again.
Loreen blushed even more as she replied, “Then, I gave you a fat baby boy…”
Charlie curled his lips before he said, “Did you know that dreams are always a reverse of reality?”
Loreen replied immediately, “I wouldn’t mind giving you a beautiful daughter too. I would like that as well.”
Charlie really had a headache as he saw the serious expression on Loreen’s face.
Finally, Charlie emphasized once again, “Loreen, we really can’t be together… you don’t understand me at all…”
Loreen had a dull expression on her face as she said, “Even if I really do not understand you, I can slowly get to know you better. It doesn’t even matter to me if you choose not to divorce Claire as long as I can secretly love you and be by your side. Even if I had to secretly love you for a lifetime, I am more than willing to do so…”
