Chapter 29 Didn’t You Like Me the Most?
Crystal went upstairs.
When she arrived at the second floor, she couldn’t help but look down.
Henry’s car was still parked there, the luxurious golden Bentley Continental sticking out like a sore thumb in the rundown community. This wasn’t a place someone of Henry’s status would visit.
Crystal thought that Henry should be appearing at cocktail parties instead.
Everything that happened tonight was a mere ripple in the pond of her life. She would forget about it after a night’s rest.
Crystal didn’t dare look again as she hastily went upstairs.
When Henry saw the lights on the top floor turning on, he finally drove away. He was unaware that a black sports car was parked in the shadows, and the owner of the car had already waited for more than two hours on the ground floor.
Robert had been waiting there for as long as Henry and Crystal had embraced each other in the car!
Presently, Robert got out of the car in black clothes. The black car and black attire made his face look even paler and more handsome. He leaned lightly against the car and lowered his head to light a cigarette.
The thin smoke escaped his lips but was quickly gobbled up by the night.
He had seen everything just now.
Ha! Has Crystal fallen for Henry in such a short amount of time? Doesn’t she like me the most?
Robert stared at the lights on the top floor, then dialed a number.
With that, he ended the call and sneered. “Crystal, you asked for this!”
Crystal had just turned on the lights after getting home when Anna walked out of her room in pajamas.
“Why are you back so late?” Anna’s voice was riddled with reprimand.
Crystal poured a cool glass of water for herself. Biting her lip, she decided not to tell the truth. “I missed the bus, so I came back late,”
Anna looked at her for a while, “I’ll warm up some supper for you.”
Crystal kept feeling like Anna knew something, but she couldn’t explain anything. After all, there was nothing between her and Henry, much less a future.
After around five minutes, Anna came back with a bowl of ramen. She placed it on the small dining table and called Crystal over to eat.

Crystal was quite hungry, so she said in a small voice, “Thank you, Aunt Anna.”
Anna sat down opposite Crystal and supported her chin as she looked at the young woman. Crystal felt uneasy from her gaze and asked, “What’s the matter, Aunt Anna?”
Anna seemed to have withheld this question for a long time as she asked, “That lawyer called Miller sent you home, right? Are you two… still talking to each other?”
Crystal nodded. “It’s just some small talk. We might not meet again in the future.”
Anna was a little disappointed to hear that.
She was disappointed for both John’s and Crystal’s sake.
Crystal’s four years of devotion were wasted on that ingrate named Robert. Anna earnestly wished that Crystal could find a man even more outstanding than Robert and completely outdo him.
Crystal knew what Anna was thinking about. She took Anna’s hand gently and commented, “You forget that Mr. Miller and Robert will be relatives sooner or later. I don’t even dare imagine it.”
Anna sighed before muttering, “He can’t just take you out without letting you eat something! You reek of smoke…”
Crystal choked on the water she was sipping on when she heard that.
She felt extremely awkward.
Once back in her room, Crystal took a bath and lay on her bed. She couldn’t sleep and random thoughts kept occurring to her. She thought about Anna’s attitude and how the woman seemed to have accepted the fact that John would be in jail for two years.
Crystal felt a little sad.
She had entertained the thought of getting revenge on Robert, but she knew that she couldn’t affect him in any way. Also, she had to take care of Anna. Anna had never experienced hardships in her entire life…
Crystal tossed and turned, unable to fall asleep.
At 4.00AM, her phone suddenly rang.
Thinking that it was spam, she took her phone to delete it, but she froze when she saw the message.
It was a WhatsApp message from Henry.
‘Have you fallen asleep?‘
He attached a photo, which was probably taken from the balcony of his luxurious apartment. The angle oversaw the night scene of the busiest street in Barnwood, and a goblet was placed on the railing. The lights of the night were reflected on transparent glass, which glimmered brilliantly.
