Chapter 405: The Pain Almost Tore Her Apart
When Rosiley returned from the Elton Villa, it was already past ten o'clock in the night.
As soon as she entered the house, she saw Sachin waiting for her in the living room.
Sachin welcomed her warmly, "Why did you come back so late?"
“I'm worried about Juliet." Rosiley slowly walked to his side and sat down. She leaned her head against
his shoulder and slowly closed her eyes, looking tired.
The living room was so quiet that one could only hear the ticking of the old-fashioned clock. Sachin put
his arm around her shoulder, gently rubbing it.
After a long time, she asked, "Sachin, how is the investigation going?"
Sachin remained silent and did not answer her immediately.
After a long time, Rosiley opened her eyes and stared at his angular face. She frowned slightly, "Is
there something wrong?"
Sachin said softly, "Yes." And there was no further to follow.
Rosiley frowned even more tightly. She sat up straight and asked anxiously, "Sachin, what's wrong? Mr.
Elton didn't accept bribes, right?"
"Yes. He is innocent.” Sachin nodded.
"I knew it.” Rosiley heaved a long sigh of relief, but she soon realized something was wrong. "Then
what is about the money found in Juliet's house?”
Sachin pondered for a moment before saying, "Someone framed him."
"Frame?" Rosiley paused and subconsciously asked, "Who?"
Rosiley's pupils slowly dilated. This answer seemed to be unexpected, but it was also not a surprise.
"Why would he do that?” Rosiley was in confused, unable to react to why Benson had done this.
“Because of Payton."
"Payton? Did he really want to harm Payton?” Rosiley's voice got higher out of shock.
Last time in the Lu Mansion, Benson had warned them that he would put moves on Payton, but she
hadn't expected that he
would do so.
Rosiley was shocked. As a father, how could he really harm his son?
“What should we do now?" Rosiley thought about what had happened to Mr. Elton. It all could come
down to her. She felt very sorry for the Eltons. She was the one who dragged them into this.
"I'll take care of it.”
His concise words gave Rosiley great peace of mind. Since he said so, he would solve it.
Rosiley thought for a moment and then asked, "Does Payton know? Does he know you're your father
"Not yet.” Sachin didn't want his younger brother to know about this. Payton shouldn't have suffered
from it, so Sachin didn't tell him.
He told Rosiley about this idea, and the latter nodded in agreement. "That's good, so he doesn't have
to worry too much. Otherwise, I would feel even more indebted to him."
"You don't have to feel like you owe him. I owe you." Sachin gently stroked her cheek. His gaze was
filled with a trace of guilt. "I shouldn't have let this happen to you."
Rosiley smiled faintly and raised her hand to cover his hand. She rubbed her cheek against his warm
palm and whispered,
"No matter what happens, I will be happy to be with you."
His heart melted in sweetness. He couldn't help but hug her into his arms and put his chin on top of her
head. He said firmly, "Rosiley, everything will be over.”
Rosiley clung onto his back tightly and buried her face in his arms, hearing his steady and powerful
She slowly closed her eyes and gently opened her red lips, "Yes, it will all be over."
Maddox's attitude was still as firm as ever, which made Old Master Shen feel troubled and angry.
He thought Maddox would at least compromise for him for the sake of his sickness, but he didn't. This
made him both angry and heartbreaking.
In that brat's heart, that Yayoi was completely more important than him.
Wendy saw that the old man had been upset for a few days. She knew that it was because of Maddox
and took the initiative to find Maddox.
When she saw Maddox and Yayoi walk out of the TEG building, her eyes darkened a little.
At the sight of her, Maddox and Yayoi stopped at the same time.
Wendy walked over and said, "Maddox, do you have a few minutes to talk with me?”
Maddox turned his head to look at Yayoi and refused, "I don't.”
Yayoi knew that Wendy come to Maddox for Old Master Shen's sake, so she said to Maddox, "Maddox,
you guys talk. I'll
wait for you in the car.’
After saying that, she nodded at Yayoi and walked towards the parking lot.
"OK. Be careful.” Maddox shouted.
Yayoi turned around and smiled at him, "I know."
After Yayoi left, Maddox put his hands in his pockets and looked at Wendy indifferently, "OK. What's the
Wendy was hurt by his attitude, but she managed to a faint smile. "Your grandpa hasn't eaten properly
Maddox frowned slightly, and wore a mocking smile. "That's his own body. If he doesn't cherish his
health, I can do nothing about it.”
His attitude was completely indifferent, not showing the slightest care about his grandfather's heath.
This made Wendy a
little angry, "Maddox, that's your grandfather, not anyone else."
Maddox sneered, "Yes, he is my grandpa. But in order for forcing his grandson to fulfill his damn
promise, he didn't hesitate
to pretend to be sick and deceive me. Don't you think I should be angry?"
"Maddox, Grandpa is doing it for your own good.” Wendy argued without any real conviction in her
She did not expect that grandpa's feigning illness would be seen through by him. This made their plan
abort before it
succeeded. And at the same time, it angered Maddox.
“For my own good?” Maddox raised his eyebrows, and his eyes were filled with ridicule, "Don't put it so
nicely. This is clearly
to satisfy your selfishness."
Facing his accusation, Wendy clenched her hands tightly and remained silent for a long time before
saying softly, “Maddox,
Maddox looked at her coldly and said, "Wendy, I don't love you. If you still took me as your big brother,
please explain it
clearly to Grandpa. Just give up. Otherwise, it won't be good for both of us."
Wendy murmured, her lips curling into a bitter smile. She looked at him with a sad expression. “I'm not
willing to accept
this. I love you, Maddox. Why didn't you give me a chance?"
"Wendy, love doesn't happen just by having a chance. I love Yayoi. She is the only one in my life, so ...
Wendy stared at his handsome face. Her vision gradually blurred. In her tears, she seemed to see the
boy who smiled
kindly at her back then.
"Wendy, welcome to my family. I am your brother, Maddox Shen."
Time flew. He was no longer the big brother who always took care of her, and she was no longer the
little girl who only
secretly had a crush him.
She had loved him so much but didn’t get any response. The pain almost tore her apart.
She slowly turned around and straightened her body. Under his gaze, she slowly left with a proud
