My Husband, Warm the Bed – Chapter 25

“Hello.” Before she could finish her words, Karen Daly was shocked by the person in front of her. She was speechless for a moment. Ken Black was not alone. There was another tall man in a black suit. The man stood before the large French window, with his hands behind his back, and his gentle eyes gently fell on Karen Daly. The two of them looked at each other quietly, and neither of them looked away. Three years on, Karen Daly had thought that it would not shock her when she meets this person again, but the reality was that it did shock her. Seeing this face that she had been so familiar with before, all the bad memories flooded into her heart like a tidal wave, tearing away at her newly healed scar ruthlessly, and it was as if there was blood slowly flowing out of her heart. She wanted to turn around and leave, but the heavy pain of the past dragged her so hard that she could not move at all. She could only stare at the man in front of her. After looking at each other for a long time, the man stepped towards her and walked to her side. He smiled and said, “Manager Black, this must be the Miss Daly you have been praising.” Hearing the man’s voice, especially the words “Miss Daly” felt like a blow to Karen Daly’s mind, it was an extremely sobering experience. “Charlie, yes.” Ken Black nodded repeatedly and said, “Miss Daly, this is Charlie Gook of the Gook Family. He wants to hear your opinion on this project.” Karen Daly clenched her fists and gasped, trying to maintain her professional smile. “Hello, Mr. Gook!” Although she had tried her best to maintain her professional demeanor, her voice was still trembling. Ken Black added, “I heard from Manager Olsen that Miss Daly is very devoted in preparing for this case. Please share with us.” “Mr. Black, you flatter me.” Karen Daly gasped again, She opened her laptop, tried hard to ignore the existence of the other man, and began sharing her opinions on the project in a serious manner. During her explanation, she felt a burning gaze staring at her, but she chose to ignore it. While she was talking, the secretary came in and called Ken Black away. Karen Daly did not notice it. When she finally realized, it was only herself and the man called Charlie Gook in the office. There was no one else in around. The smile on Karen Daly’s face disappeared instantly. She got up and left without saying goodbye. The man moved faster than she could. He stretched out his long arm and pulled her into his arms, holding her tightly. He shouted out a word full of affection from the bottom of his heart, “Karen.” Karen Daly struggled to break free from his embrace. She clenched her fists and closed her eyes. When she opened her eyes again, her eyes were filled with indifference. “Sir, please behave yourself.” After saying that, she turned around and was about to leave. The man reached out and grabbed her wrist again. “Karen, it’s been three years. Are you still blaming me?” Karen Daly wanted to be rid of him, but his grip was so strong that her wrist hurt, she couldn’t shake him off. Karen Daly took a deep breath, endured the heart wrenching pain, and coldly said, “Sir, please let me go, or don’t blame me for being rude.” The man ignored her threatening words and said affectionately, “Karen, sit down and let’s have a talk.” “Let go of me.” Karen Daly bit her lip, turned her head away and blinked, forcing back the tears that were rushing out of her eyes. Three years ago, she had not shed a tear. Three years on, she would not shed any tears for someone who is unworthy of them. The man pulled her into his arms again and hugged her tightly, calling her name. “Karen, Karen” She tried her best to struggle, but there was a huge difference in strength between men and women. Even if she used all her strength, she couldn’t push the man away. Karen Daly struggled for a long time but failed to get rid of him. Knowing that it was useless to continue, she stopped struggling. Seeing her quiet down, the man released her from his arms and put his hands on her shoulders. “Karen, I know that you have suffered a lot in the past three years. Now I’m here to pick you up. You’ll go back with me. Your parents and your sister are all worried about you.” Hearing the man’s words, Karen Daly suddenly calmed down and said very calmly, “Who are you? Why did you say that to me?” Ask her to go back? Was she still able to go back? Three years ago, when they had abandoned her like an unwanted child, they should have known that they would never return to them ever again. “Karen baby…” “Don’t call me that! It will only make me sick.” Karen Daly stopped him and suppressed the pain in her heart, trying to keep herself calm. “Now, my life is fine. Please don’t appear in front of me or disturb my life again.” “You’re living a good life?” The man reached out and pinched her chin, forcing her to raise her head and look at him. He said word by word, “Karen, if I didn’t mean to give you the Star Glow project, did you really think that you could stand out from dozens of companies with just a small new technology, and win the Star Glow tender?’ Karen Daly bit her lip and looked at him coldly. “You.” The man’s words were like a steel knife, piercing into Karen Daly’s heart and cutting off her pride and arrogance. In the past three years, she had worked hard and lived hard. No matter what she got, she earned it on her own. However, this was the answer that she received, after working so hard for such a long time. These rewards did not come because of her efforts, and she had been manipulated like a clown for three years. Karen Daly closed her eyes, took a deep breath, and then slowly smiled. “Thank you for your kindness, Mr. Gook. I thank you on behalf of our company.” “However, I did it all for you.” The man raised his hand to touch her face, but was slapped away by her before he could even touch her. Karen Daly gritted her teeth and said, “Don’t touch me You’re dirty!” After saying those harsh words, she turned around and walked to the door. She reached out to twist the doorknob, but the door had been locked from the outside and she couldn’t get out She turned around and glared at him. “What on earth do you want to do?” “Karen, I won’t hurt you.” The man approached her again and said affectionately, “I just want to hug you and feel you.” Karen Daly leaned against the wall and moved towards the left. She wanted to keep a distance from him, but the man was not in a hurry. As if he had checkmated her, he slowly approached her and said, “Karen..” The anger in Karen Daly’s bones was ignited. She grabbed the ashtray on the tea table and said, “I want you to stay away.”
