Chapter 35 Isn't He Afraid of Poppy?

Eduard had shown respect to Jacob by calling him 'Mr. Taylor'.

Jacob was annoyed that Eduard blocked his way. He glanced at Arthur and Lucia, who approached the entrance, and then turned to Eduard with a sneer.

"Mr. Burton, don't you think your love is one-sided?"

"I am never in one-sided love." Eduard smiled indifferently, blocking Jacob.

"She already has an escort, and you still get involved. Isn't it one-sided love?" Jacob could see that Eduard cared about Lucia as a wooer instead of a superior, so he teased Eduard in this way.

"It is hard to say if it's one-sided love, but you will never get Lucia again all your life!"

Eduard fought back. As a womanizer, Eduard could sense that Jacob was possessive towards Lucia though Lucia was just his ex-wife.

Eduard glanced at Jacob who was frustrated, and turned away without hesitation.

If it wasn't for Lucia, he wouldn't have wasted his breath!

The eye-catchers had left. Jacob stood still in the corner like a clown, lost in thought.

Arthur said goodbye to the host and got Lucia's coat. He wrapped her tightly in a thick coat before taking her to the parking lot.

Lucia was silent all the way, and Arthur would have thought she didn't care if it hadn't been for a glint in her eyes.

After getting into the car, Arthur opened the passenger door for Lucia for the first time and let her sit beside him.

Before Lucia could ask the reason, Arthur spoke, "I need to watch you."
