Chapter 98 So Painful

“What more do you want?” I asked in annoyance when I turned around and saw that it was Dominic.


He spun me around to face him and said coldly, “You have no right.”

I froze and stared at him in confusion as I didn’t understand what he meant.

“You ended our relationship as you pleased five years ago. Do you really think I’d let you do that again now? You have no right to tell me to stay away from you! You owe me big time, and I’m not letting you get away from me this time!”

I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry when I heard that. “Since when have you gotten so shameless, Dominic? You’re the one who wronged me in the first place, but I’m the one who owes you big time?”

Dominic frowned and shot me a cold glare before breaking into a vicious grin. “Trying to shift the blame, are you? Too bad it’s not going to do you any good because I’ll make sure to take back twice as much as you owe me!”

His ability to shamelessly lie through his teeth left me speechless once again.

Suddenly, a hand reached out from behind and yanked me free of Dominic’s grip before pulling me into a warm embrace.

I looked up in confusion and saw Nicholas looking at me worriedly. “Are you hurt?”

I shook my head and replied, “Come on, let’s get out of here.”

At that point, I didn’t know what else I could say to Dominic, nor did I want to say anything further.

“Stay out of this, Nicholas! I’ve been kind enough to let you off the h**k up until now, but don’t mistake my kindness for weakness!” Dominic said threateningly before Nicholas could even respond.

His menacing tone sent a shiver down my spine, and I quickly shoved Nicholas off me. “This is between him and me, so you should stay out of it.”

Knowing Dominic and the fact that he has invested in The Wind And Cloud, there’s no telling what he would do next!

To my surprise, Nicholas grabbed my hand once again and said, “I won’t leave you here.”

I knew he was trying to help me, but I had brought him more than enough trouble and didn’t want him getting into a direct confrontation with Dominic.

“You should just go, Nicholas.”

I tried to get him to leave, but he simply gave me a reassuring pat on the shoulder before turning toward Dominic. “You don’t strike me as the type who’d dwell on the past, Mr. Hartnell. There’s no point in clinging on to her like this.”

“That’s none of your business,” said Dominic as his voice grew colder.

Before I knew it, Nicholas pulled me into his arms and said calmly, “You’re harassing my girlfriend unreasonably, so it’s very much my business.”

Huh? I’m his girlfriend?

I looked up at Nicholas in confusion, only to see a warm smile on his face and a calm look in his eyes as he continued to stare Dominic down.

“Girlfriend?” Dominic’s tone was as cold as ice.

I turned toward him and instinctively mumbled in response, “I’m not…”

Nicholas cut me off by pulling my head into his chest as he said, “It’s true that we haven’t announced our relationship to the media, but I believe you already knew about us dating when you saw us at the hotel the other day. Isn’t that right, Mr. Hartnell? Still, we’d appreciate it you would keep this a secret for us. We’ll announce it ourselves when the time is right.”

Hearing that made me realize what Nicholas was playing at.

After all, I did go as far as telling Dominic I slept with him, so it wouldn’t sound out of place for Nicholas to say we’re dating.

“Heh… Your stupidity really is something out of this world, Nicholas! I can’t believe you’d fall for a woman who only cares about money and fame! Oh, I get it! You must’ve liked her for her skills in bed, huh? Well, guess what? I was the one who taught her all that! Are you sure you want used goods?” Dominic said with a sneer.

How could he say something like that? I’m not the one in the wrong! ”Dominic! You…”

“What, am I wrong?” Dominic let out a sarcastic chuckle as he continued, “Looks like I’ve taught you well, Liliana! Very impressive work, charming our beloved superstar and having him all wrapped up around your finger!”

I bit down hard on my trembling lips, unable to say a single word in response.

Nicholas let go of me and walked up to Dominic before punching him in the face.

“You call yourself a man?” he shouted angrily as his body emanated an icy-cold aura.

I wasn’t expecting for Nicholas to actually hit him, and the shock left me completely frozen in place.

Dominic took a moment to steady himself before rushing toward Nicholas.

“No, don’t!” I shouted in protest, but it was to no avail as his fist landed square on Nicholas’ face.

“Oh, she knows just how much of a man I am!”

With tears in my eyes, I quickly ran over and helped Nicholas to his feet.

“Are you okay, Nicholas? Does it hurt? You’re bleeding!”

“I’m fine, so you can stop crying now,” Nicholas’ said gently while wiping the tears off my face.

The fact that he was still trying to comfort me hurt my heart even more, and my tears continued flowing down my face.

Nicholas pulled my head against his chest and patted me on the back. “Listen up, Mr. Hartnell. Liliana is my girlfriend, so I don’t want to hear you say anything insulting about her ever again. As for her character, I’ll be the judge of it.”

He then let go of my shoulder and took my hand in his as he said, “Come on, let’s go.”

I pursed my lips and shot Dominic a glance before nodding at Nicholas.

It began raining heavily all of a sudden after I got into his car, but I saw Dominic still standing there through the rear-view mirror.

A woman ran up to him and hugged him from behind shortly after.

The rain was too heavy for me to see her clearly, but it didn’t take a genius to figure out that it was most likely Camille.

My tears began falling again when I saw her dragging Dominic back inside.

Nicholas let out a sigh and pulled my head gently onto his shoulder.

“You can let it all out if you want, but make this the last time you’ll ever cry over a man who doesn’t care about you.”

I grabbed hold of his shirt and wailed loudly upon hearing that.

The pain felt like countless needles pricking every inch of my body, and it took me a really long time to finally stop crying.

“Thank you, Nicholas…” I mumbled with a sniffle after slowly regaining my composure.

He flashed me a warm smile in response. “Come on, I’ll treat you to a nice meal.”
