Chapter 51 I Can Give You the Same
Crystal changed her clothes after that.
Before she left, she turned in the direction of the study.
Henry was still working when her gentle words reached him. “I’ll be back by 10.30PM.”
He softly exhaled at her words, which were very normal for a family.
It’s really different when another person is living under the same roof as you.
Even though it was holding him back slightly and inconvenient, he was happy with the addition so far. Crystal wasn’t clingy, but she was gentle enough. Besides, she was a good cook and would do the cleaning for him. She’s just like…
Henry snapped out of his thoughts. At last, he only hummed a response to her words..
Crystal left Henry’s place and decided to call for a cab in front of the apartment. It has a strategic location. It must be easy to stop a cab.
To her surprise, a black Lotus stopped her in her tracks the moment she walked out.
Robert got out of the car in the night breeze.
Crystal felt her heart leap at the sight of him. Deep down inside, she feared spending time with him alone. The gloomy expression on his face at the moment only fueled her fear.
She tried her best to keep her composure.
He slowly approached her. Instead of roughing her up, he mocked, “You’re full of surprises. I didn’t expect you to get Henry to back you up. Crystal, have you ever thought about the consequences? Do you even know his past? I bet you don’t, or else you wouldn’t have chosen him.”
Crystal gave him a solemn smile before questioning, “How does it have anything to do with you, Mr. Sloan?”
She wasn’t a naive girl. She had guessed that Henry had given his heart to another.
Her calm reaction wasn’t what Robert expected. He could feel his heart drop at that.
He couldn’t help but ask, “Do you not care about that? Are you willing to be his plaything? Crystal, other than sleeping with you, what else can he give you?”
“What about you?” Crystal lowered her gaze and sneered. “Robert Sloan, you’re no different from him.” Deciding that it was best to stop dealing with him, she sidestepped and walked toward the road.
He immediately grabbed her wrist, and she couldn’t struggle out of his grasp. He watched her with a gloomy look in his eyes as he growled, “What else did he give you? I can give you the same. I can even give you something he can’t.”
At that moment, his dignity got the best of him.
Robert even thought about getting a divorce a few years later and marrying Crystal if she was willing to become his kept woman for the time being.

Meanwhile, his attitude disgusted Crystal.
She threatened in a low voice, “Let me go or I’ll scream. Robert, you don’t want me to make a scene and ruin your engagement, do you?”
He gritted his teeth at her words before releasing her.
Crystal walked toward the roadside and hailed a cab. She then got in the car and left.
Robert could only watch her leave before slamming his fist on the car’s roof out of spite.
Henry was holding the two boxes of condoms as he thoughtfully watched the scene unfold from a distance.
A moment ago, he remembered leaving the condoms in the car after Crystal left his place. He didn’t expect to see such drama when he went downstairs to grab them.
He curled his lips in amusement before taking out his phone and calling Jamie, “Look into the Sloan Group’s audit data over the past few years. I want them on my table tomorrow.”
Jamie was surprised to receive such an order.
The Sloan Group is the Sloan Family’s property, and they are becoming Mr. Miller’s in–laws in the future. Is it appropriate to do that?
Jamie had much experience in relationships, so she immediately thought Henry was doing it for Crystal.
A man will only target another man when it comes to love. Mr. Miller is fighting for Miss Winters‘ attention!
Crystal returned home right at 10.30PM.
Henry should be done with his work. Meanwhile, the man in question was standing at the French windows with a gla** of wine in his hand. He seems lost in his thoughts.
He didn’t even turn to greet her when she walked inside.
Crystal stood at the door for a while and thought about it as she bit her lip.
She had no idea about how women usually pleased a man. However, she knew he liked her body, and he was expecting her to please him with it. Thus, she mustered her courage and approached him. Hugging him from behind, she asked, “Are you done yet?”
