Ashton grabbed onto me as he finished.
Rage boiled within me as I frowned in pain. I pulled his hand out, glaring at him. “Well, if it’s nothing but an inn to you, feel free to never come back. Sign the divorce papers and we’ll never see each other again!”
Suddenly, he bit me on the shoulder, causing me to hiss in pain. My tears were on the verge of spilling out.
“Oh? So you’re going to stay far away from me now that you’ve gotten the money, the house, and the shares?” Ashton glared at me and let out a cold laugh. “Your love sure is cheap, Scarlett. To think you’re taking it all back so easily.”
My head began to hurt seeing how intoxicated he was. What was I doing, trying to reason with a drunkard?
Suppressing my anger, I softened my tone and held his face. “It’s getting late, Ashton. Let’s go home okay?”
Ashton stopped talking. He closed his eyes and leaned back into the couch, but still held on to me.
Not knowing what he wanted, I paused briefly before suggesting, “If you don’t want to come home with me, I’ll ask Rebecca to pick you up, okay?”
He didn’t want to return to the villa anyway, I assumed he had been staying with Rebecca all this while. Refusing to let him disrupt Macy’s business, I grabbed my purse and took out my phone, ready to give Rebecca a call.
Yet, Ashton snatched my phone before I could even dial Rebecca’s number.
Crash! He tossed my phone far away.
