My Mysterious Husband – Chapter 150 He called her name in dreams (1)
Venus held back the tears and said calmly, “Her parents are not well, so she had to go back home.”
“Oh… I remember, a while ago, weren’t her parents looking for her? I heard that her father is still hospitalized.”
Venus answered, “Well, it’s because her father is not well and she’s the only child, so of course she has to go back to take care of her parents.”
“I see. I thought she hooked up with another rich man and just fly away.” Lina’s tone was a bit mean.
Since she had passed away, and even though no matter had bad she was, it’s better not to discuss about her. Besides, Venus didn’t want to hear people slandering Xinyou.
“Just go back to work. Manger He might be angry if we keep gossiping.” Then they left.
Because she had just gone to work, Venus didn’t have much work to do. After reading the new issue of Style Magazine, she was full of hope, wishing that her brother could see it. And then he came to save her, so that she could get away from Kerry, that monster.
When it came to noon, Venus and a few colleagues were walking and discussing where to eat. The elevator came down and there was a person standing inside.
The few people chattering outside the elevator suddenly quieted down and Venus looked at Kerry, who was with an indifferent face. Until she walked into the elevator, a few people behind her followed, excited with a little nervous.
“Hello, Mr. Ye.” “Hello, Mr. Ye.”
Kerry greeted back.
Xiaoli and Lina looked at each other and they felt it was just too lucky. Didn’t he have an exclusive elevator? What brought him to take the staff elevator today?
It must have something to do with Venus. Thinking so, the female colleagues worshiped Kerry even more.
Although he was already married, the female colleagues still treated him as their dream lover.
It was off-work time, so the people in the elevator got more and more. At first, Venus kept a certain distance from Kerry, but then the space became smaller and smaller, so she was naturally pushed to Kerry’s side.
Kerry looked at her, with his dark, curved eyebrows gently furrowing and his eyes blinking, making Venus unable to see the brilliance in his eyes. His high nose oozed with dense beads of sweat and he pursed his lips. Despite the crowded elevator, she was doing her best not to get close to him, as if she were some sort of toxic stuff.
“Ding.” The elevator doors opened and a few more people came in.
“Please don’t get inside. It’s crowded already.” Someone shouted in a small voice.
Venus and Kerry stood at the back, in front of whom was a man in a white shirt. He stumbled backwards. Seeing that he was about to lean on Venus, Kerry quickly pulled her in front of him, while his back was to everyone and his hands were stretching on both sides, creating a small hidden space…
The few people around saw this, turning their heads away to pretend to chat with someone around them, or looking down at their phones. In fact, everyone was focusing on them, wanting to know what they were saying.
Venus was a little hot by his breath, wanting him to get up, but there were too many people in the elevator, so she could stare at him to express her dissatisfaction.
Kerry was somewhat mad at her acting in such way, lowering his head to whisper, “Where to eat?”
Venus turned her head away to ignore him.
Seeing that she didn’t say anything, he bit her ears, “Do you believe I’m going to do something to you here if you don’t say anything?”
Venus blushed subconsciously. How dare he?
“It hasn’t been decided yet. We are discussing.” Venus replied indifferently.
“Well…” Before Kerry left, he nibbled her pink earlobe that no one could notice.
Venus was shocked for a few seconds, and after realizing what he had done, she very rudely elbowed him in the waist. It was a work place and there were so many people here, so how could he do this?
Kerry muffled, frowning. Venus hurt him a little bit.
The atmosphere in the elevator was restless and strange, but no one spoke, most of whom were looking at the ever-changing numbers.
20, 19, 18…
For the first time, Venus felt that the elevator was descending so slowly, and suddenly, Kerry’ s hand stretched above her head slipped down and landed on her waist and then buckled her in his arms.
Venus stared at him. What did he want?
Kerry lips curved. He thought this was a revenge for her hitting him with her elbow.
But Kerry bit her at the beginning.
Venus might bite back.
Venus was speechless. After living for more than twenty years, she hadn’t seen a man more shameless than Kerry.
“Ding.” The elevator finally arrived at the first floor.
God, Kerry didn’t do anything more and just came out along with the crowd.
“Venus, you and Mr. Ye go to eat. We’re leaving first.” Lina said smilingly.
Venus stopped her, “I’ll go with you guys. Mr. Ye, he has his…”
“I’m fine, I’m just here to have lunch with you.” Kerry interrupted her.
Venus at first didn’t want to disappoint him, but now she didn’t want to care too much, so she just said, “I don’t want to eat with you.”
A few people present were shocked by Venus. Did she actually speak to Kerry like that?
Kerry was also surprised by her, and after a moment of silence, he smiled, “It’s okay, just pretend that I don’t exist.”
He had been dealing with piles of documents all the morning, and he didn’t want to stop, because as soon as he stopped, he couldn’t help but wonder what Venus was doing now.
There were several times when he tried to find an excuse to go to the design department, but he was stopped by his sanity.
My Mysterious Husband – Chapter 150 He called her name in dreams (2)
This thought tormented him until the noon and he immediately put aside all his documents for her downstairs for the first time.
Xiaoli and Lina were a little embarrassed while extremely shocked.
Were they…having a fight?
Venus Mu didn’t want to be gossiped and said coldly, “Whatever.”
Then they came to a restaurant near the company.
Kerry Ye took the menu to order. Xiaoli tugged on Venus’s sleeve and whispered, “Look, he loves you so much. Don’t be mad at him.”
“Yeah, how lucky you are. Just be nice to him.” Lina echoed.
They really had no idea what he had done to her, but Venus couldn’t tell them anything.
Since her parents died and her brother disappeared, she had been living in hell.
Kerry finished and turned to Venus, “What would you like to drink?” “Water, please.” Venus was cold to him.
Kerry, however, said to the waiter, “Yogurt, for a few ladies.” “Yes, please wait a moment.”
The waiter left, and Lina looked at the other three colleagues, who all stood up and said, “Mr. Ye, excuse us. We need to go to the restroom.” “Me too.”
In a moment, there were only two of them left in the large room.
Venus, with her arms folded across her chest, looked at him with a resistant stance, “Kerry, what do you want?”
“Lunch.” Kerry was indifferent.
“Then why do you have to eat with us when you can go eat by yourself?” Venus somewhat couldn’t understand him.
Kerry took out a cigarette, putting it under his nose and then put it down. He looked at her deep black eyes, “Venus, you should know that I’m the one who saved you from Hao Nangong. Is this your way to thank me?”
“Well…” Venus sneered, “Kerry, you couldn’t choose not to save me.”
If he could tolerate such a shitty thing that his best friend kidnapped his wife and he didn’t care about the public opinion, he really could not save Venus.
Although she didn’t say the rest of this sentence, Kerry could know it.
Kerry’s heart ached again, but he finally compromised, “Venus, I saved you once and lied to you once. Can’t you just forget it? Can’t we just live peacefully like before?”
Venus’s eyes were widened in surprise, “Kerry, do you think we got along peacefully in the past? Why I don’t know?”
“So, what do you want?” Kerry began to lose his patience.
“It’s simple. I want a divorce.” Venus said this before.
“Don’t even think about it. I won’t agree.” Kerry suddenly remembered something, looking at her, “I’m curious, aren’t you going to be mad at the sight of me? Why you’re fine now?”
Venus didn’t expect him to suddenly say this, but she didn’t want him to know the truth and said with composure, “Maybe you should thank the doctor.”
Kerry looked her up and down with a scrutinizing gaze and snorted, “Really?”
“Do you want me to be a psycho forever?” Venus asked rhetorically.
Kerry snapped the cigarette in his hand and said in an icy tone, “Venus, don’t let me find out your secret, or…”
“What? Kill me? Or punish me?” Venus looked like she wasn’t afraid of death, “Kerry, you’ve done the cruelest things to me, do you think I’m still afraid?”
If she’s not afraid of death, how could she be afraid of this? She wasn’t afraid of anything now.
Venus’s words reminded Kerry of what he had done to her in the past, and the stone in his heart was getting heavier and heavier. Judging from her attitude, she seemed to never forgive him.
If… he said sorry now…
No, it wasn’t his style, and besides, she’d given her virginity to some jerk somehow, so for this, he couldn’t forgive her.
When Lina came back, both of them were gloomy and silent. After they looked at each other, they knew things got worse.
The food was served quickly, all of which were specialties.
But because of Kerry was in a low mood, people at the table were eating very depressed, except for Venus. She has long been used to his temper and this couldn’t cause any trouble to her.
Suddenly, a pleasant ringing sound broke the suffocating air.
It was Venus’s phone and it was from her school.
“Hello, Miss Xiaohua.” Venus greeted.
“Venus, go back to school this afternoon. I need to ask you something.” Kerry could hear all their conversation.
“Okay, I got it.”
“Xinyou’ s phone is not working. Aren’t you with her? Tell her that you’ll both be back this afternoon.”
Venus froze and she couldn’t help but look at Kerry, who also happened to be looking at her.
“Well, I’ll call you when I arrive this afternoon.” Venus’s tone was a bit lost. “Okay, bye.”
After hanging up the phone, Venus had no interest to eat, whose eyes was full of tears, but she didn’t want her colleague to find out, so she got up and excused herself to go to the restroom.
My Mysterious Husband – Chapter 150 He called her name in a dream (3)
“How am I going to explain Xinyou’s disappearance to others?” Venus thought.
“I can tell them that Xinyou is home taking care of her parents. But what if her parents find out?” Venus didn’t dare to think about it any further. Xinyou’s death would always be known.
Although she wasn’t the murderer, Xinyou’s death did have something to do with her. How would she explain all this then?
“Don’t think about it. I’ll take care of it.” Kerry came to her side and handed her a tissue.
As he watched her cry, his heart softened and then he took her into his arms.
“Don’t cry. It’s going to be okay.” He stroked her long hair and whispered.
Venus cried on his shoulder for a moment, and then she wiped her tears.
“Kerry, don’t pretend to care about me.” Venus said suddenly. “Just leave me alone.”
Kerry was speechless.
The school is full of full of youthful spirit. People are vigorous and dynamic. When Venus came back school, she was in a good mood.
She went to the guidance counselor’s office. Mrs. Xiaohua was very happy when she saw Venus.
“Are you here alone? Where’s Xinyou?” she asked.
“Her father isn’t well, so she went home to take care of her parents.” Venus told this lie again.
Mrs. Xiaohua didn’t suspect anything after hearing it, and gave her a file, smiling, “You should read this first.”
Venus opened the file and skimmed through it roughly. It was a file about exchange students, and the other school was a famous university in Paris.
“The school now has ten exchange student places. You and Xinyou are the best in our academy this year. If you’re willing, you can go to France to further your studies for two years.” Mrs. Xiaohua said hppily.
Venus was pleasantly surprised and said excitedly, “I get the chance?”
Mrs. Xiaohua was quite proud and said, “Of course, you are the talented girl of our design school, and you are the first in every exam. If you go out and see the world, it’ll be very helpful in your career.”
“I know.” Venus was so happy, but then she thought about Kerry. He would never agree to her leaving the country. Venus was a little sad.
Mrs. Xiaohua saw her face change and asked, “What’s wrong?”
“I …… you know I’m married, so ……” said Venus awkwardly, “I’ll have to talk to my husband about that.”
Mrs. Xiaohua patted her hand and said, “It is something you should discuss. This is a rare opportunity. You should consider it carefully.”
“Thank you, Mrs. Xiaohua.” said Venus. “I will.”
“There are a lot of people fighting for this chance in the school now. I can only give you three days. Take this file back and discuss it with your family.”
After leaving Mr. Xiaohua’s office, Venus didn’t go back to work right away, but strolled around the campus.
It had been a long time since she’d been to school. The library, classrooms, and dormitories all had fond memories of her.
She had cheered on seniors on the basketball court with her friends. She had also come to run every night for a few days in order to run 800 meters on the green track.
This campus holds all her happy memories. If time had remained frozen on campus, she wouldn’t have to suffer the pain of betrayal.
Venus sat on the bleachers all afternoon, reading that file over and over again. She really wanted to go abroad for further education, but the reality simply wouldn’t allow her to do it.
Kerry wouldn’t necessarily approve of her going abroad. Besides, she couldn’t afford the tuition and living expenses alone.
“Venus…” an unfamiliar voice sounded.
Venus turned back, and a not very familiar but gentle face appeared in front of her.
“Is it really you? I thought I had the wrong person.” A man said. He was a little surprised.
Venus remembered that he was a schoolmate who was one year senior to her grade. He had pursued her in her sophomore year, but she rejected him. In his junior year he had an accident and Venus hadn’t heard from him since.
Venus recognized him and said, “Hello, long time no see.”
“You still remember me?” The man sat down next to her.
“You’re famous in school of foreign languages.” Venus teased.
“But you still don’t like me.” he looked at her seriously and said.
“Let’s not talk about the past.” Venus was a little embarrassed.
“You’re graduating soon, aren’t you?” asked he.
Venus nodded, “Yes. What are you doing now?” Venus was afraid that he would ask more about her, so she changed the topic quickly.
My Mysterious Husband – Chapter 150 He called her name in a dream (4)
“I’m currently working for a foreign company. I come back today to run some errands.” His gaze was calm. “I feel good at school. Every time I come here, I feel like even time slow down a lot.”
“I feel the same way,” Venus echoed. Suddenly, she remembered the car accident he had suffered and asked with concern, “I heard you hurt your arm in a traffic accident. How is your injury?”
He shook his arm and smiled, “It’s fine. At the time I thought I was going to lose this arm, but then my parents found an herbalist. My arm was treated for a year before it recovered.”
“You must have suffered a lot.”
“Yeah, but It’s worth it.” he smiled.
They talked more about the old time. Then Venus’s phone rang. It was from Kerry.
“What’s up?” Venus’s tone was cold.
“Are you done? I’m at the gate of the school now.”
“I got it, be right out.” Venus hung up the phone and smiled at him, “I should go.”
“I’ll walk you.” He was a little sad. After all, Venus was the girl he used to like.
Venus refused, “Thank you. But you don’t have to.”
“Well, let me see what your boyfriend looks like.” He joked, but there was a hint of loss in his eyes.
He had known that a girl as beautiful and excellent as Venus would have many suitors.
Venus didn’t refuse him, so he walked her to the school gate.
From a distance, she could see Kerry standing by the car with a cigarette between his fingers.
Kerry saw her and a man laughing and walking over, and froze for a moment, then he threw his half-smoked cigarette on the ground and stomped it out, striding over.
When the man saw Kerry, he was obviously stunned for a moment.
“What took you so long?” Kerry took a glance at the man and then looked at Venus.
“I ran into an old friend,” Venus said coldly and didn’t want to introduce him to her old friend.
“Goodbye.” She said to the man.
“Bye. I hope I can see you again.” said he. Before leaving her he threw upon her face a wistful glance.
Kerry saw through him and purposely grabbed her around the waist.
“Get your hands off my waist.” Venus lowered her voice, unhappy.
Kerry held her tightly around the waist and whispered in her ear, “You better explain it.”
“Explain what?” Venus stared up at him. “You’re boring.”
Kerry wore a cold smile. “Explain if this man has slept with you.”
“In your eyes, if I talk to a man, I’ve slept with him?” Venus was no longer angry at his words now. Now she had only indifference for him. “If you feel that way, I suggest you see a psychiatrist.”
Kerry gritted his teeth and didn’t say anything.
Suddenly, Venus thought something. She broke away from Kerry’s hand hard and said, “Just give me a minute. I have something important to do.”
After that she turned and ran to her schoolmate who was still standing there.
“You just said your arm was healed by an herbalist. Do you have his phone number? I have a friend who hurt his right hand.” Venus said with anticipation on her face.
“Yes, but it’s not his. It’s his son’s.” the man said. “The herbalist last name is Hua. He likes to travel around, so you need to contact his son ahead of time.”
“Okay, thank you.” said Venus excitedly.
He looked up at Kerry who was standing in the distance with a gloomy face. Feeling his coldness, he said goodbye to Venus and turned around in a hurry.
Venus returned to Kerry in a cheerful mood. She didn’t bother to pay attention to him and got right into the car.
Kerry took a deep breath and forced himself to calm down before returning to the car.
“Tell me, what are you going back to him for?” Kerry asked calmly.
Venus took a glance at him. “He is not angry? It is too strange.” She thought.
She told him briefly about her schoolmate who had just injured his arm in a car accident.
“You want Kevin to go to this herbalist?” Kerry understood what she was trying to do and was in a better mood.
“Yeah, go try it. Maybe it works.” said Venus.
Kerry thought about it and nodded.
At the dinner table, Kerry told Kevin about this. Kevin was going to refuse. He had been looking for a lot of herbalists over the years, and had taken a lot of Chinese medicine, but none of them had much effect.
But once he heard that it was Venus’s idea, he was silent for a moment and said, “Okay, let’s go to find the herbalist then.”
Venus saw that he agreed, and even gave his phone number to Kerry, urging him, “You should call Mr. hua’s son right now. If he’s free, we’d better go find him immediately.”
Kerry took the phone and dialed it. When it was connected, Kerry got up and walked out.
“Why do you so care about my arm all of a sudden?” Kevin looked at Venus, puzzled.
My Mysterious Husband – Chapter 150 He called her name in a dream (5)
“Well, you’re my friend, aren’t you? Of course I should be worrying about you.” Venus Mu answered as it was a matter of course. In fact, there was another reason, though Kevin Ye never mentioned, his injury must have something to do with her brother. If Kevin could be cured, then maybe his hatred towards her brother would be alleviated.
Kevin lowered his head and took a sip of porridge. He was delighted by Venus’s concern.
A few minutes later, Kerry Ye walked in, with a smile on his face.
“Luckily, Mr. Hua will come to Sky City to visit a friend. He’ll be staying in his friend’s home the day after tomorrow. We can go to him then. His son will send the address over later.”
“What a coincidence?! We’re so lucky.” Venus was also cheerful at the news.
“The morning after tomorrow, I’ll drive you there.” Kerry said to Kevin.
Kevin nodded, “Okay.”
They hoped they could have better luck this time and things would go well, just as Venus said.
At 10 p.m., Venus was lying on her bed, browsing information about exchange students policies of various schools. As she expected, the cost of the exchange student for one year would cost at least 100,000, almost the same as studying abroad. Two years meant 200,000. Where could she get that much money?
Kerry was definitely not giving it to her. As for her uncle, Venus would feel happy if he didn’t ask her for money, let alone provide financial support to her.
It seemed that she had to give up this opportunity.
While she was staring blankly at the ceiling, Kerry walked into the room in slippers. Venus sat up vigilantly, asking, “What do you want?”
Kerry answered, unbuttoning his shirt, “Sleep. What else could it be?”
“Why don’t you go find another room? This house has so many empty rooms.”
Kerry grinned, “Venus, should I remind you that this house belongs to me? Including this room.”
“Okay, you can sleep here. I’ll go to the guest room.” Venus didn’t even bother to put on her shoes, leaving the room without hesitation.
But it was impossible for Kerry to let her go. As Venus passed him, he grabbed her waist and threw her directly on the bed, then pounced on her.
Earlier today, in the elevator, Kerry was already filled with lust, now he couldn’t wait to fuck her.
“Kerry…… you ……“ Venus turned her head and tried to avoid his touch and kiss.
Kerry took off her nightgown rudely; his big hands were pinching and squeezing her waist. He said in an angry tone, “Tell me, the man this afternoon, did you sleep with him?”
Venus scoffed at his question, “Does it matter if I have slept with him or not? You’ve already believed that I am a slut anyway, so your question is nothing but bullshit.”
Without foreplay, Kerry went directly into her body. Venus bit her lower lip in pain, her bright eyes were covered with the emotion of despair.
Seeing this, Kerry somehow moved a little lighter and slower. He kissed and touched several sensitive places of Venus, and didn’t continue moving until she was wet enough.
“Venus…… Aren’t you going to plead for yourself?” Kerry kept staring at her, trying to observe the slightest change in her face.
“Not necessary.” As soon as she said that, Kerry fucked her so hard that she felt like her soul was about to go out of her body.
“You …… Slow down…”
“Beg me.” Kerry exhaled in her ear.
“Kerry…… Beg you? Don’t even think about it!”
Her recalcitrance provoked Kerry. As a result, she was occupied and conquered by him more and more ferociously.
When it was all done, Venus put on her long pajamas and walked to the bathroom wearily. She was awake, so she didn’t want to sleep with his scent and mark.
Walking to the door of the bathroom, Venus looked back at Kerry who was leaning on the head of the bed and mocked, “You didn’t call out Xinyou Qiao’s name while holding me tonight, did you forget her already?”
Kerry’s eyelids were twitching. When did he mistake Venus for Xinyou? Why didn’t he remember?
“What are you talking about?”
“Oh, don’t you remember? You got drunk in the garden last night and held me in your arms but couldn’t stop calling out for Xinyou. You sounded so infatuated and so obsessed with her. It turns out that you men are so capricious, after only one day, you have forgotten her completely.” After saying this, without looking at his face, Venus walked into the bathroom and turned on the nozzle.
The hot water ran over her body, washing away Kerry’s scent gradually.
The feeling of revenge turned out to be so good and delighted.
No wonder Kerry enjoyed torturing her all this time.
Retaliating could be highly addictive.
On the bed, Kerry was startled by Venus’s words. Puzzlement rose inside him. It squeezed together his mind and pounded into his temples. He couldn’t calm down.
Did he really call Xinyou last night?
While holding Venus in his arms?
But why did he do that? He was sure that he didn’t like Xinyou that much.
After taking the shower and drying her hair, Venus was lying on the bed, turned her back on Kerry, closing her eyes tightly.
When would this kind of life end? Brother, brother, where are you? Come back, please.
Could you hear me calling your name?
Kerry also lied on his side, staring at her skinny figure. He had the sudden urge to hug her over, but wasn’t able to pluck up the courage.
Though they were lying on the same bed, near each other as they were, but they were as far apart as if separated by a deep abyss, which was difficult for them to stride over.
After a long time, the steady and soothing breathing of Venus was heard, then Kerry also closed his eyes and fell asleep.
