Let’s Start All Over Again, Shall We? Chapter 23

Chapter 23 What If I Want To?

Maggie hesitated to confront Joseph outside the door, fearing Nathael’s anger.

Just look at his expression….

His face was so gloomy that it couldn’t get any darker!

“Hm… Maggie didn’t know how to start and felt extremely awkward. It was as if awkwardness had invaded her home, and she was the guest of honor.

Just when she and Nathael had started to get along a little better, Joseph, the troublemaker, wouldn’t stop.

“Maggie, I know you’re home! Open the door. Let’s talk!”

Joseph’s voice came again. Maggie almost couldn’t help but laugh.

Can you please be quiet for once?

Nathael sneered with a hint of self–mockery in his eyes. “It seems I’ve interrupted Ms. Adam’s date.”

Maggie didn’t know what to say.

He’s like a ticking time bomb!

His patience was as thin as a needle hole.

Maggic sighed and knew it wasn’t entirely Nathael’s fault. She had done too many wrong things, and what goes around comes around. She could only take it one step at a time.

“Nathael, can you…. him!”

Nathael was startled.

Maggie looked at him, started to speak seriously, paused, then continued, “Just ignore

She sighed when she saw he didn’t respond. Nathael would probably find even ignoring Joseph distasteful.

She walked to the door. Her eyes were hidden under her lowered eyelashes, and she said coldly, “Joseph, you should leave. I’ve made myself very clear.”

“Maggie, open the door first.” Joseph was patient.

He wasn’t usually a patient person. But because it was Maggie and he was in the wrong, he was willing to coax her a little longer.

“Maggie, I know you’re angry right now. But I only made a mistake that any man in the world would make. You have to understand. That’s just how society is. You won’t find another man who treats you like I do.”

Joseph started his brainwashing mode, and Maggie laughed scornfully, feeling sorry for her past self.

In fact, two years later in her previous life, she had discovered the relationship between Joseph and Vanessa. She even found out Joseph was a playboy and had ambiguous relationships with many women.

But even so, she never hated him. She was just heartbroken.

Later, she and Nathael became involved. Then, she was disfigured by Sierra. Naturally, Joseph wouldn’t have any feelings for a blind and unattractive woman.

Maggie couldn’t help but wonder, was it a mistake that all men would make?

What about Nathael?

Would he do the same?

He had been with her for years without making any advances. Would he pursue other women?

But Maggie denied it soon.

He wouldn’t.

With his status and position, if he wanted to, there would be plenty of women who would rather fight to get into his bed than stick with her, a pitiful woman.

Seeing that Maggie didn’t respond, Joseph thought she had been persuaded.

He immediately said. Tve ordered the latest necklace from Cartier for you. I’ll have someone send it to you tomorrow. I also bought a house in your name. You just need to sign.”

He didn’t have much patience and assumed once Maggie accepted the gifts, the matter would be settled. “Maggie, are you still in contact with Nathael?”

Maggie instinctively looked at Nathael. Then she heard Joseph continue, “I know you feel sick when you mention him, but after what he did to you, we have to make him pay!”

Maggie was speechless now.

Well, very good, excellent.

“If you have time in the next few days, it would be best to talk to him again. What are his plans for the Chronopolis project? And the Spectral Port business district, which the Harris mainly handles. Let’s see if you can get the Camerons a share of it.”

Maggie felt the urge to cry. She bit her lip and closed her eyes, afraid to look at the man standing a few meters away.

What should she do?

If she rejected Joseph, the Camerons might become suspicious.

If she didn’t reject him again, Nathael might think she was up to something.

She sighed softly, feeling like fate was playing with her. Whether she explained or not, Nathael probably wouldn’t believe her.

She felt like she couldn’t clear her name again.

Oh, her romantic dinner with Nathael….

“I won’t leave until I see you. Open the door,” Joseph frowned, suddenly remembering the Maybach he had. seen downstairs.

Considering the standard of this neighborhood, not many people could afford such a luxury car.

Maggie couldn’t help but scoff. Joseph was as persistent as a dog, a stubborn one at that!

Nathael’s eyes turned cold as he gripped Maggie’s wrist, pulling her towards him. He looked at her and asked, “Do you want me to open the door?”

His gaze was intense, and his jawline was tense, clearly in a bad mood.

Maggie shook her head and replied. “No, you can’t.”

Now was not the right time for Joseph to know about her relationship with Nathael, especially since they weren’t even together yet.

If the Camerons found out about her involvement with Nathael, they would use their relationship as leverage to gain more from him. It would be even harder for her to clear up their misunderstanding.

Nathael let out a cold laugh. His eyes were dangerous and icy. He said. “What if I want to?”

Maggie swallowed, feeling his icy gaze pierce through her like the cold depths of the ocean, causing her heart to sink as if she were falling.

Just then, Joseph spoke again, “Maggie, is there someone with you?”

Bang! Bang!

Joseph suppressed his anger and began to pound on the door.

Initially, he was just impatient. But now, as he thought about Maggie betraying him and being involved. with another man, he could no longer control his anger. His face turned grim.

Nathael spoke in a low voice, “Mr. Cameron.”

Before he could finish, Maggie quickly covered his mouth and whispered, “Please don’t speak.

Joseph thought he heard a man’s voice, but he wasn’t sure because of the door separating them.

Maggie slowly removed her hand. Her almond–shaped eyes pleaded, “Could you please stay silent?”

Nathael scoffed and whispered, “Are you so afraid of him finding out?”

After all, she still loved Joseph.

Nathael lowered his gaze, not wanting to dwell on it, but he couldn’t help torturing himself.

So, were all these incidents just part of a calculated scheme for the Spectral Port project?

He laughed at himself. His dark eyes filled with sadness.

his slightly cold lips.

illusions.

Maggie didn’t know how to explain. As she saw his gaze turn cold, desperation filled her eyes, and they reddened. On impulse, she tiptoed, threw herself at him, wrapped her arms around his neck, and kissed his slightly cold lips.
