Chapter 104 He Did That Intentionally

“That’s none of your business!”

I had never felt more stupid for caring about him.

“You’re right, it is none of my business. Benjamin told me you nearly drank yourself to death, but I’m kind of disappointed that you didn’t actually die. Please tell your men to not inform me unless it’s your funeral.”

I then turned around and walked toward the door after saying that.

D**n it, I shouldn’t have come! Why was I even worried about this piece of sh*t?

I thought to myself as I opened the door, only to see Camille standing outside with her eyes red and swollen.

Oh, for f*ck’s sake! Why am I so unlucky? Now I have to deal with another piece of sh*t!

“Liliana…” Camille took a step back in fear when she saw me.

I wasn’t sure why she reacted that way toward me, but I didn’t care and simply walked past her.

I didn’t see Nicholas outside the ward, so I was about to give him a call when I saw Yvonne coming over.

“Dr. Baker!” I waved at her.

“Ah, are you here to visit Dominic?” Yvonne asked straightforwardly.

My cheeks puffed up with anger as I replied, “Hmph! Why would I visit someone that lively and well? Besides, he’s got his fiancée with him, so I’d just be a third wheel there!”

Yvonne adjusted her glasses and asked, “Aren’t you curious as to why he ended up being hospitalized?”

I shook my head. “I’m not interested in his affairs.”

He just said it was none of my business, and I wasn’t about to repeat that same mistake.

Yvonne ignored my reply and continued, “He drank too much and suffered from gastrointestinal bleeding. If this happens again, he could very well meet his maker on the spot.”

I felt my chest tighten upon hearing that, but I responded by saying, “Only the good die young, so he’s going to live a pretty long life.”

“He actually did that with the intention to kill himself.”

So what? That’s none of my business!

“I’ve got some business to attend to, so I’ll be on my way now. See you, Dr. Baker.” I grew impatient and didn’t want to stay there any longer.

I gave Nicholas a call after saying goodbye to Yvonne, and he asked me to wait for him at the elevator.

He said he would come over right away, but Camille came before he did.

The mere sight of that pretentious look of hers made me extremely uncomfortable, and she was the shameless type who would cling to you even when you keep trying to brush them off.

“Thank goodness, you’re still here. There’s something I want to talk to you about, Liliana.”

I said coldly, “We have nothing to talk about.”

“Don’t be like that, Liliana. I just wanted to apologize to you for what happened at the reunion. I didn’t know Dom would treat you like that.”

I let out a sarcastic chuckle. “Oh, please… Dominic isn’t here right now, so you can drop the act now, you pretentious b*tch! Apologize? Don’t make me laugh! I bet you were overjoyed at the time, weren’t you?”

Camille froze for a second and had an innocent look on her face.

However, that look quickly disappeared and was replaced by an annoying, gleeful grin.

“Of course! It’s nice to see how much Dom hates you!”

“Yeah, you look a lot easier on the eyes when you’re being your b*tchy self!” I said with a snicker.


Wanting to anger her even further, I stroked my chin and continued in a serious tone, “Camille, do you know what the difference is between your biggest strength and your biggest weakness? Well, I’ll tell you. Your weakness is you being a b*tch, and your strength is you being too much of a b*tch.”

“You…” Camille’s face went stiff from anger, and I could see her going through a myriad of expressions in an instant.

Not wanting to waste any more of my time on her, I waved at her like she was an annoying fly and said, “Dominic is waiting for you, so you should get going now.”

“I’m sorry, Liliana! I’m sorry…” Camille grabbed my arm and began crying all of a sudden.

I brushed her hand off in disgust. “Don’t touch me! Get your crazy a*s away from me!”

Man, she really is something! Glaring daggers at me a second ago, and breaking into tears the next? I’m surprised she hasn’t won an Oscar yet!

Camille grabbed onto my arm once again. “I know I’ve wronged you, and that I shouldn’t be with Dom! I’ll leave him so you can have him back, Lili!”

Her pretentious act was really starting to anger me, and I shoved her off in response.

“What the h*ll is wrong with you? You hit yourself on the head when you were little or something?”

She then pretended to fall down from being shoved, much to my disgust.

Wow, really? Can’t you at least be a little more creative? That was such a light push! If you like falling so much, how about you try falling down a flight of stairs next time? Besides, Dominic isn’t here, so what’s the point of doing this?

“Who are you putting this act up for?”

“I’m not acting, Lili! Please, you have to believe me!”

Camille stood up and tried to grab me a third time, but I pushed her away really hard this time.

“Cut it out, d**n it! Get the h*ll away from me!”

“Camille!”

I turned around when I heard someone call out to Camille, and saw a woman approaching from the corridor.

I had no idea who she was, but I knew for a fact that she wasn’t Camille’s mom.

I had been to Camille’s house for dinner countless times when we were still close friends in university, so I knew how her mom looked like, and this woman looked nothing like her.

“When did you get here, Milena?”

The woman helped tidy up Camille’s hair and said with a gentle smile, “I got here a while ago and was asking the doctor about his condition.”

Camille had a concerned look on her face as she asked, “So, what happened earlier…”

“Yes, I saw everything. Are you all right? You’re not hurt, are you? Dom worries a lot about you, so it would pain him to see you getting injured like this.”

“Aw, shucks!” Camille blushed like a shy little girl.

Um… What on earth is going on here? Judging by the way this woman speaks, she seems to be very close with Dominic and Camille… Could she be a relative of some sort?

The woman gave Camille a pat on the back of her hand, and the look in her eyes changed when she turned toward me.

“So, you’re the woman who slept with my son?” she asked with an icy-cold and penetrating gaze.

Huh? Her son? Who? Dominic?

I was so shocked that my legs nearly gave out underneath me.

Where the h*ll is Nicholas when I need him?
