Zac was shocked. A hint of astonishment flashed across his face. "What did you say? Pardon me?"
Again, she took a deep breath, and her expression became calmer. Figuring out what was behind the matter was the main purpose of her coming here today. She couldn't be too impulsive to irritate the big demon.
"Christina said that you had helped her plan the whole thing. You asked her to drug Hanson and pretend to be pregnant, so as to destroy our engagement ceremony,"
she repeated it again. Before coming here, she had planned to look for Christina first. Unexpectedly, she went abroad and hid herself, afraid that she would be blamed by him. So she asked him directly.
"Damn Christina!" Zac frowned in anger, with a deep imprint on his forehead.
Essie stared at him without a blink. She didn't want to miss the subtle change in his expression. She asked, "Did you do that?" She asked in a gentle tone rather than an angry one.
Zac knew her intention. His face softened. "Do you believe it?" he asked.
She pursed her lips. There was a light blackness in her eyes. "I believe you as long as you say no," she said clearly and forcefully word by word. After a pause, she added, "And even if it was really you who did it, I won't hate you. I owe you twice since you saved me twice, which can be offset once."
He stared at her. There was a deep and complicated expression hidden in his black eyes, as if he was comforted, "You are not too stupid."
"I'm not an idiot." She pouted her lips and suddenly reached out her hand to hold his face, which was so bold that even she herself was taken aback. But she didn't put down her hand. She belonged to him in this house.
"Freezing guy, now please tell me frankly, did you do it or not?"
Her hand was soft and warm. Zac felt that he was melting. His heart was beating fast. But he didn't dare to show it. He just replied lightly, "You have already known the answer, haven't you?"
She shook her head, "I don't know. I just want to hear it from you. My guess doesn't count."
He was like a combination of contradictions. He disliked her for being stupid and confused, but always gave her a mystery to guess, how could she figure it out. And if she guessed it wrong, it would only intensify the misunderstanding and conflict between the two sides.
Zac gently wrapped his arms around her waist, as if responding to her provocation. "I'm your creditor. If I want you, I can have you anytime and anywhere. Do I need to beat around the Bush like that?"
She was completely relieved at his words.
She knew he wouldn't do that. He was the demon. If he wanted to stop her from getting married, he would certainly kidnap her directly, and then throw her to an empty Island, where she had nowhere to escape. No one would come to her rescue even if she plead for it. She could only become his private property for fun.
"Why did Christina pour this bad water on you? After all, you are her brother-in-law, isn't she too ungrateful to do so?" She thought the whole night yesterday, but still couldn't find the answer.
"She wanna die." A murderous look flashed across Zac's face.
"She has gone abroad to hide, probably for fear that you would get even with her.copy right hot novel pub
