Her Billionaire Husband Chapter 165
“No matter. Speak your mind.” Xavier had never thought of Melissa as a stranger.
“Understood. I‘ve already investigated the incident you asked me to. Tiffany was indeed the one behind
last night‘s car accident,” said the man in the suit.
Melissa stiffened. “What car accident?”
“What else could it be? Of course it was an accident meant to involve Roni.” Xavier‘s expression chilled
. “Is Tiffany taunting her because Roni doesn‘t have anyone to back her up? Go teach Tiffany a lesson.”
“Yes, Mr. Crawford.” The man in the suit dipped his head before leaving.
The gears in Melissa‘s head whirred quickly. She eyed the man thoughtfully before turning to face Xavi
er and smile. “You can continue working. Something just came up, so I need to leave.”
“Go ahead. I still have work to do anyway.” Xavier waved at her and pointed at the present on
his desk. “Thanks for this.”
“Oh come on, Xavier, why the politeness?” Melissa giggled before leaving the office with rushed steps.
When Melissa reached the elevator, she saw the
man who had just left. She raised an eyebrow. “By the way, my brother told me to tell you this: he said t
hat the baby Tiffany‘s pregnant with is an eyesore. You got that?”
The man stiffened for a
moment. He understood what Tiffany meant. “All right, understood. Please inform Mr. Crawford on my b
ehalf that it will be done.”
Melissa pressed her lips into a smile, and she nodded. “My brother‘s counting on
That baby was indeed an obstacle. If Tiffany wasn‘t pregnant, Matthew might not marry her anymore. M
elissa would then actually have a chance if she wanted to pursue him.
Melissa naively assumed that if she got revenge on Tiffany, Veronica would be happy when she saw Tif
fany‘s downfall. Who wouldn‘t be delighted to see someone get major payback for a huge grudge?
Meanwhile, Veronica woke up after sleeping the entire night at the inn. Alier brustung her teeth and gett

Veronica‘s brows furrowed. After a moment of hesitation, she answered the call. “You‘re not thinking of
sending me to the train station, are you? Since you‘re calling me at this hour,” she teased. Veronica initi
ally wanted to quietly leave Bloomstead without anyone sending her off. Unfortunately for her, she had f
orgotten to keep the exact time a secret when she told Xavier when the train would arrive.
“I‘m outside your home. Come on out. I can send you to the station,” Xavier said over the phone.
Veronica was moved when she heard his gentle voice. Deep down, she knew about his kindness.
“Oh, right, I forgot to tell you that my train ride got rescheduled. I went to my friend‘s place at the last mi
nute for an errand; I‘ll only be leaving tomorrow.”
Veronica typically disliked partings with others. She always felt that they were sad, so she didn‘t want X
avier to send her to the train station.
“Rescheduled? Why didn‘t you tell me?”
“What‘s the big deal about rescheduling? Go home. I‘m busy right now. I‘ll call you back later.” With that
, she hung up, ruining Xavier‘s chance to talk to her. After she checked out, she hailed a taxi and
made straight for the train station.
Meanwhile, Tiffany‘s face was swollen from last night‘s beating. Bruises could be seen on her face.
As a talented woman with peerless beauty, Tiffany placed her looks far above everything. When she wo
ke up and looked in the mirror to find her face swollen with cuts running across it, she was so startled t

Tiffany lurched forward from the back seat when the car braked suddenly to avoid the vans. Instantly, p

it. “Are you guys blind? Don‘t you know that I‘m pregnant with Matthew‘s child? Can you even shoulder
the responsibility if anything happens to the baby?”
Tittany might be saying this for appearance‘s sake, but she did indeed care about the baby in her belly.
She was worried that something would happen to the baby.
