Chapter 314 Grievances From the Past Few Days Burst Forth

Calvin spat out the blood from his mouth and said, “Rest assured. I’m not as wicked as you.”

He had initially intended to let Chloe have a taste of her own medicine, but her resemblance to Luciana made him hesitate in the end.

Joseph’s heart eased. He picked Chloe up in his arms and headed toward the exit. As they reached the doorway, he abruptly spun around, his eyes aglow with a bloodthirsty madness.” Do you honestly believe things will end this easily?”

Calvin’s brows knitted together in a display of anger, his voice dripping with contempt. “What else do you want? Don’t forget, you were the one who made a move on Ava first! You even did such despicable things to her. Are you even a man?!

In his heart, Chloe might be innocent, but Joseph had gone too far. Fortunately, Ava was strong-willed and did not do anything foolish. Comparatively, he had already shown mercy

toward Chloe.

Joseph’s face turned cold as he uttered, “Ava brought it upon herself.”

After the medical assessment, Chloe received four stitches on her head. The other injuries she sustained varied in severity, but none of them posed a fatal threat. However, the injuries. inflicted upon her constituted a cruel form of torment for any woman.

Joseph sat vigilantly beside her bed, feeling a deep ache in his heart as he witnessed the exhaustion and weariness etched on her face. He had underestimated the gravity of the situation. Merely punishing Ava was inadequate. He should have taken proactive measures to ensure Chloe’s protection.

Upon receiving the news, Emily hurried to the hospital without delay.

However, when Icarus attempted to enter, Lucas blocked his way.

Tears welled up in Emily’s eyes as she witnessed Chloe’s tormented condition.

Annoyed, Joseph said, “All right, stop it. She’s not dead.”

Emily sobbed uncontrollably, wiping her tears away as she said, “Thank you. Coco will be so grateful to you when she wakes up.”

At those words, Joseph’s cold countenance softened. “I know. You don’t have to tell me. I’ve arranged for someone to take care of her. You can go home now.”

She nodded and obeyed his words. Being unfamiliar with Docwood, she deemed it better to entrust Chloe’s care to Joseph rather than pretending to be strong. Besides, they might even mend their relationship in the process and reconcile.

Outside the hospital, Icarus, who had been waiting, rushed over to Emily. Anxiety was written

all over his face. “How is she? Is Chloe okay?”

“She has four stitches on her head and her other wounds are varying degrees of severity, but she’s stable now.”

Upon hearing about the stitches, Icarus’s handsome face turned grim. “I’ll stay here to take care of Chloe.”

“Hey, don’t go in. Joseph’s there.” Emily said, touching her nose. “I know you like Coco, but judging from their current situation, it won’t be easy for them to break up.”

Icarus furrowed his brows. “Aren’t they considered broken up after a divorce?”

“They can reconcile after a divorce, and besides, their marriage was a sham.”

“Their marriage was fake?”

Realizing her slip-up, Emily quickly corrected herself. “Never mind… I was just talking


Icarus’ eyes flickered slightly. “I won’t tell anyone. Even if I give up, I don’t want to give up without any reason, and after listening to what you said, I won’t be able to let go of Chloe even


Emily paused for a moment. After a while, she sighed and spoke concisely, “Fine. Coco and Joseph initially agreed to a contractual marriage for some reason, but they ended up falling in

love with each other.”

“For some reason?”

“I only know this much. I’m not clear about the rest…” Emily said, feigning ignorance.

Fortunately, Icarus did not press further and stopped asking. He escorted Emily home before. driving back to his own place. He sat in his study, looking at an unfamiliar number on his phone, and after much contemplation, he finally dialed it.

“Have you made up your mind?”

Xavia’s confident voice came through the phone as if she had anticipated his call.

“Yes, but I want to know your true identity.”

“Well…” Xavia hesitated. She intended to marry into the Whitmans and could not reveal herself too much. Staying low-key was the wiser choice.

“I’ll remain in the shadows while you stand in the spotlight. It wouldn’t be fair for me. As a token of my gratitude for providing me with the information about their divorce, 1 can share something with you that you might not know.”

Xavia fell silent for a moment. “Deal.”

“Their marriage wasn’t real. It was a contractual arrangement.”

The next day, at four in the morning, the effect of the anesthesia on Chloe’s head wore off,

and she woke up in pain. In the dark hospital ward, she licked her parched lips and spoke in a weak voice, “Water…”

A glass of water was placed in her hand. She eagerly took it and drank several large gulps before realizing there was someone in the room.

She was stunned for a moment and then realized she had been saved. Suppressing her excitement, she cautiously asked, “Who are you?”

Joseph replied, “…Idiot.”

With a click, the light turned on. Joseph stood with his arms crossed, and there were faint dark circles under his eyes. His neat short hair fell over his forehead. He looked somewhat exhausted, evidently having not slept all night.

Chloe stared at him, her eyes becoming watery. Her grievances from the past few days burst forth at this moment. She did not want to cry, so she bit her lip, holding back the tears.

Unbeknownst to her, the facade of strength she tried to maintain only intensified his anguish. He yearned to embrace her tightly, to offer solace and comfort within the shelter of his arms.
