Lance’s eyes visibly darkened.
Yvette’s reaction was not what he had expected. She was upset.
If it was before, Yvette would have been happy as hell, but now, there was no joy to be seen.
His heart skipped a beat.
“Yvette, are you still blaming me?”
Yvette lifted her eyelids. “What exactly are you referring to?”
This meant that Lance had already done quite a few things that made her upset.
Since their marriage, the two of them had never encountered such a big disagreement.
Lance pursed his lips and looked at her, not letting go of a single emotion on her face. “ Whitney’s matter.”
Yvette smiled indifferently. “It’s all in the past, isn’t it?”
Lance rubbed his temples.
“You can tell me if you’re upset about anything.” Yvette said, “I knew of her existence before we got married, and she’s not a threat to me, so I’m not upset. I also have exes, so I understand. You don’t have to explain yourself so many times because of that.”
At the mention of her ex-boyfriend, Lance felt his heart clench.
Her ex had an even more profound existence than Whitney.
If Sean Moore wanted to get back with Yvette, Lance was afraid that he would not be able to the situation calmly.
Thus, Yvette’s reaction was surprisingly good. There was no noise, no drama, and no crying. What else could he complain about?
However, Lance inexplicably felt suffocated and depressed.
That feeling just would not dissipate.
“Then let’s talk about you going to Cali. I told you that you’re not suitable for this job. It’s too dangerous there, and you won’t be able to cope.” Lance’s tone was deep as he very patiently persuaded her.
Yvette sat there with her eyebrows slightly wrinkled.
“Why do you think so? I haven’t even gone yet, but you’ve already assumed that I’ll fail?”
“What if something happens to you?”
Lance’s tone was a bit anxious.
Yvette said, “I’ll be careful. It’s not like I won’t have any bodyguards and assistants with me.”
“You think too simply. This isn’t something that having bodyguards and assistants with you can solve. Once those people are pushed into a corner, they may go crazy, so who knows what they’ll do?”
His fists unconsciously clenched.
“I’m mentally prepared for it, and I won’t give up halfway. Lance, this is the first time I want to do a job so seriously. I don’t want to stand on your shoulders or my mom’s shoulders anymore. I want to face it on my own.”
Lance took a deep breath. His eyes were sullen. “Yvette, can’t you just gain experience here? You can go shopping and spend money whenever you’re bored. Don’t you like this kind of life very much? Why do you have to go to such a dangerous place for so long? What are you going to do?” Yvette tilted her head, looked at him, and slowly smiled.
“I’m your wife and your subordinate. I’m not your daughter, so you don’t need to control me so much. I certainly like those days of enjoyment, but it just feels unsteady. I want to try standing on my own.”
Lance was silent. His gaze was fixed to her face. After a long time, no one spoke first.
Lance lowered his head. “What if I still disagree?” How could he send her to such a dangerous place and feel assured?
Yvette said, “Then I’ll resign.”
Lance’s dark eyes were staring at her.
“Are you serious?”
“I’m not joking. It’s all the same if I go back to work at Quimbey Corporation, but my mother won’t restrict or control me. She’ll definitely support what I want to do.”
Yvette needed a chance to grow up on her own. Lance was silent. He did not speak again.
He did not know what to do with Yvette, and he felt powerless.
She was so stubborn, and no one could persuade her.
