Chapter 61: Willing To Go Back With Him
Brian stood aside, watching Toby guarding Ayla against him.
He looked at Toby and asked, “Mr.Brown, you seem to be very protective of her.Is it possible that the child in her belly is yours?”
Ayla’s eyes widened in shock upon hearing Brian’s words.She shook her head and replied, “No, it’s not his.”
She had made things worse now.
If Brian continued to misunderstand the situation, Toby would be involved.
He was already married, and she didn’t want him to be in big trouble just because of her.
But much to her surprise, Toby suddenly said, “Yes, Lala’s child is mine, so let her go now.I’ll give you anything you want as long as you let her go.”
Seeing Ayla in such a miserable situation made Toby decide to take her away even if he lost everything.
“No! I want her,” Brian retorted.
His eyes darkened as he stared at Toby.
“Do you know how she is when she is in my bed, huh?” Toby’s face turned deathly pale.
Brian’s words were like a knife that pierced through his heart, and he felt so uncomfortable.
Indeed, Ayla was pregnant with Brian’s child.
“Come home with me,”
Brian ordered, looking at Ayla “No! I don’t want to go back to your villa anymore,”
Ayla refused at once.
If she went back with him, he would definitely get rid of her baby.
She’d rather be alone outside than have an abortion. “Do you want to go with him then?”
His eyes moved back to Toby and continued, “This man is married.Do you want him to divorce his wife, or do you want to be his mistress? Do you think the Smith family will allow you to do that?”
His every word tore her heart apart.
What he said was true.
Toby had a wife and couldn’t be with her.But what else could she do?
“Mr.Clark, this is none of your business.I’ll take care of Lala.Don’t worry about it.”
Toby held his chin up and met Brian’s eyes.
Brian stole Ayla from him.
If she continued to stay with this demon, she would only suffer more.
But Brian just ignored Toby.
He turned to Ayla and said, “Do you want to go with him? I want a clear answer now.Are you going back with me, or are you going with him?”
He stared at her with his dark and sharp eyes.
Ayla bit her lip, lowered her head, and said, “I’m not going back with you.”
But she wouldn’t go with Toby either.
She could live by herself as long as she kept her baby.
“That means you’re choosing him over me, right?”
Brian bent over and asked again.
Ayla glanced at Toby.
Then she forced herself to nod and answered, “Yes, I’m choosing him.I want to go with him.”
Brian looked at his men, and they immediately rushed towards Toby.
They pulled him, punched him, and kicked him heavily.
He tried his best to fight with them, but his strength was nothing compared to Brian’s burly bodyguards. Ayla jumped out of her bed and screamed, “Stop it! Let him go! Don’t hurt him!”
But no one paid attention to her scream.
Even the family from the other bed didn’t dare to interfere.
So she turned to Brian and begged, “Mr.Clark, please let him go.I beg you…please…”
“Aren’t you going with him? If he dies, will you still go with him?”
His words made her face turn paler.
Was he going to let his men beat Toby to death here? A trace of panic flashed across her eyes.
“No! Mr.Clark, I’ll go back with you now.Just please, tell them to stop hurting him.He has nothing to do with this.”
Ayla knelt on the floor and held Brian’s trousers tightly.
“Mr.Clark, please.I’m willing to go back with you now.Don’t hurt him again.”
She had no other choice but to give in.
If she continued to resist, it might cost Toby’s life.
She didn’t want him to suffer because of her, so she had to go back with Brian.
No matter what happened, she had to stay with Brian from now on.
“Think it over first.I don’t have time to play hide-and- seek with you.”
Brian’s expression was still cold.
Actually, if Ayla continued to be stubborn, he had more means to make her yield.
“I’ve thought it over, and I’m very decided now.I won’t run away from you again.Please, tell them to stop beating him.He will die.”
Ayla sobbed helplessly.
Brian pulled her up from the floor and held her in his arms.
He then turned to his men and shouted, “Stop.”
Toby was beaten black and blue, with a bruised nose and swollen face.
But he could feel from the pain all over his body that his injuries were just superficial.
Still, he didn’t expect that Brian would deal with him andAyla this way. “Jaime, ask someone to drive Mr.Brown back to his house.Then tell Mr.Smith that he has to stop his son- in-law from meddling in other people’s business.Otherwise, I can’t guarantee that Smith Group will continue to be safe,”
Brian said and walked out of the ward with Ayla.
It was very cold outside, but he didn’t mind it.
He still went out of the hospital with her, although she was only wearing a thin hospital gown.
On their way back to the villa, Ayla squeezed herself in the corner of the car, not because she felt cold but because she was afraid.
As soon as the car stopped in the garage, she opened the door and ran inside the villa.
Jaime glanced at Brian and asked, “Mr.Clark, are you really going to get rid of the child?”
“Don’t worry about it.But I won’t have a child,”
Brian replied. Ayla went straight to her room and locked the door.
She thought that Brian wouldn’t be able to get in there.
But she was wrong.
He had a spare key for every door of the villa.
And even if he didn’t, no one could stop him from smashing the door and doing anything to het Maria saw that Ayla had returned.
She was so worried, and she wanted to talk to Ayla.
But when she saw Brian’s cold face, she didn’t dare to go upstairs.
Ayla was curling up on the bed when her room was opened from the outside.
Brian walked in, sat on the sofa, and said, “You are quite bold.Do you still want to be with that man?”
“I just want my baby.”
She pulled the quilt and covered herself tightly. “Do you really want to have a child?”
He lit a cigarette and took a deep drag.
She knew that even if she insisted, he would still force her to abort the baby.
He didn’t want a child.
What should she do? She lowered her head and didn’t say anything.
She had no right to speak.
After all, he always had the final say in everything.
“I’ll give you one night to think it over carefully.I need your decision tomorrow morning.If you dare to run away again, I won’t look for you anymore.But I assure you that Clayton, Arlene, Toby, and Smith Group will all be destroyed.”
With such a threat, Brian didn’t think that Ayla would have the courage to run away again.
And he was right.
Indeed, she didn’t have any plans of running away again.
When she saw that Toby was almost beaten to death, she got scared.
It was all her fault.
If she didn’t call him, he wouldn’t have gone there, and he wouldn’t be hurt.
If he returned to the Smith family’s villa with all the bruises he had on his body, he would find it difficult to explain himself to them.
Maybe he wouldn’t be able to live a good life there in the future.
She couldn’t help blaming herself for everything that happened today.
So even if she didn’t want to be with Brian, she had no other choice.
Otherwise, Toby would continue to suffer. Brian gave her one night to think about it.
But for her, it was useless.
What did she need to consider? Even if she told him that she wanted to keep her baby, he would still not listen to her.
After a while, Maria brought some food to Ayla’s room.
“Mrs.Clark, whatever happened today, you still need to eat.”
Staring at the food in front of her, Ayla realized that she hadn’t eaten anything yet.
But she still had no appetite until now.
“For the sake of your baby, force yourself to eat something.You have to stay strong and healthy.”
Maria could now guess that Brian would never keep the child.
Ayla nodded and sat on the edge of the bed.She picked up the chopsticks and started to eat.
But in the end, she only threw up everything she had eaten.She squatted in front of the toilet and retched.
After taking out everything, she sat weakly on the cold floor tiles.
She felt like she had vomited even the digestive juices inside her body.
“Baby, what should I do? I don’t want to lose you.Please tell Mommy what to do.”
Ayla felt even more helpless now.
Was she going to lose her baby this time? All of a sudden, she felt like her vision started to in ate .When Maria walked into the bathroom to check on Ayla, she found that Ayla was lying on the floor, unconscious.
