Chapter 4

Since the previous day, Genevieve seemed to have become a different person.

With a cold smile, Genevieve met Anthony’s furious gaze and took out the long–prepared resignation letter and divorce agreement, throwing them hard in his face.

“Anthony Hoffman, how shameless can you two be! Do you really think I’ve forgotten about you controlling public opinion and buying so many trending topics to slander me? Don’t make me look down on you! Just the thought of staying with someone like you for a day more sickens me to the core.” She smirked icily, stepped forward, and approached him, looking into his piercing eyes without fear.

Genevieve grabbed Anthony’s collar and yanked him hard in her direction, causing his handsome face to close in. Her voice was extremely icy and threatening as she continued, “I’m sure you’re clear about my work abilities. If you don’t want things to look too bad, sign the papers and let us part on good terms. Otherwise, I will file for a contested divorce, and Hoffman Group’s scandals will be made known to all.”

After saying that, she shot them a frosty glance, released her hand in revulsion, and turned

to leave.

She never knew she could feel so pleased and content after letting go.

Anthony stared at Genevieve’s back with an intense gaze, frowning deeply with a cold and conflicted expression.

The moment Genevieve had yanked him, she seemed to have also squeezed his heart tightly, making him feel a hint of nervousness with the tremor in his chest.

Anthony had no feelings for this wife of his, but he was still fairly satisfied with her.

After marrying her, he did have peace of mind, for she had always been complaisant and never caused him trouble, even helping him far beyond his initial expectations.

Anthony had never seen Genevieve so enraged, sharp, rational, and stony. It was as if the little beast disguised as a kitten had finally revealed its true colors.

An indescribable emotion stirred in his heart that he couldn’t control at all. Her collected

and aloof gaze earlier appeared in his mind, leaving him utterly frustrated.

“Buying trending topics to slander her? When did I ever do something like that?‘ he wondered. However, he also came to realize he didn’t want to divorce Genevieve anymore.

Rosalie reached for his arm as she sobbed cautiously. “Anthony, how about I find a chance to explain things to Ms. Lawrence?”

Anthony avoided her action, pursing his thin lips as he studied her slightly swollen cheek.

“No need for that. Just don’t blame her.

Rosalie’s face turned white as a sheet as she put on a weak, empathetic smile. “Of course, I won’t.”

A hint of danger emerged in Rosalie’s mind as she thought, ‘Does Anthony care about that

woman?‘

Meanwhile, once Genevieve went out, her colleagues gathered around her, feeling indignant for her.

“Genevieve, you’re clearly the legally wedded spouse of Mr. Hoffman and have put in so much effort, yet you’re actually gonna make way for a homewrecker now?” one of them queried.

“I heard from Mr. Foster that there are plans to let that wretched woman join our secretarial department. Doesn’t that mean they’re driving you away?” somebody echoed.

“Mr. Hoffman is truly blind. How can that woman even hold a candle to you in ability and appearance?” another chimed in.

Since she had already let go of everything, Genevieve smiled gratefully. “Don’t worry about me. I would be insane if I didn’t run away from such a marriage.”

She flashed a nonchalant smile, adding, “I’m more concerned about you guys now. Mr. Hoffman may vent his anger on you because of me. If any of you want to leave, feel free to

come to me any time.”

Having worked here for three years, Genevieve had formed a strong bond with these colleagues of hers.

If Anthony really ended up firing them because of her, Genevieve wouldn’t mind recommending them to Lawrence Group. Even if Anthony wanted to ban any of them in the industry, she could also afford the consequences.

After saying goodbye to her colleagues, Genevieve left the office with her belongings.

In the meantime, Anthony didn’t forget what Genevieve had said and immediately sent someone to investigate the matter about the slander.

Before long, Matthew received results and sent Howard Jenkins, the manager of the public relations department, to report to Anthony.

“You instructed us not to let the rumors and gossip cause any harm to Samson, especially about his background. So… we could only expose Mrs. Hoffman’s past to divert the public’s attention,” Howard said.

Anthony’s face darkened. “What past?”

“Well… About her indecent life before marriage, having several abortions, her infertility, and so on,” replied Howard.

Upon hearing those words, Anthony smashed the cup in front of him to the floor, his face instantly grim as he shot Howard a stern look. “Who said that?”

Anthony was utterly incensed. He naturally knew those were all untrue, for she had given him her virginity.

The office fell into a dead silence.

Wiping his cold sweat, Howard answered, “Someone sent us Mrs. Hoffman’s information anonymously. Besides, Ms. Stewart also told us to protect Samson at all costs…” He noticed Anthony’s current foul mood and dared not hide anything anymore:

Anthony’s eyes darkened in an instant, and he ordered with a gloomy face, “Go pack up your things. You don’t have to come to work anymore.”

Howard begged for mercy but to no avail. In the end, he was dragged away by the security

guards.

Anthony realized he had been careless this time. The indescribable emotion he had toward

Genevieve grew more intense and lingered in his heart.

For days on end, Genevieve refused to answer any calls from anyone in Hoffman Group.

A week later, the hospital called her to remind her of her prenatal checkup. Only then did she remember that there was still a baby in her womb.

Genevieve should have been happy to have an inseparable connection with Anthony, but she truly couldn’t find any joy right then.

‘Anthony already has an illegitimate child. There’s no way he’ll care about mine, she ruminated.

She felt as if the heavens were making fun of her by giving her an unwanted surprise and knew she had to make up her mind as to whether to keep the baby or not.

In the end, Genevieve visited the hospital without anyone’s knowledge.

After her examination, the doctor seemed to notice her hesitation and gently told her, “The fetus is developing healthily, and all indicators are normal. If you don’t wish to keep it, you should make a decision soon.”

Genevieve hesitated, smiling with a wan face. “Thank you. Let me think about it.”

She stood up and walked to the door with her mind in a mess. From the back, her figure appeared to be frail, and she looked somewhat tender and lonely with her head drooping slightly.

While she was in a daze, a child who jumped out of nowhere bumped into her leg and fell to the floor, crying aggrievedly while covering his forehead.

Genevieve was about to bend down to help him but became slightly startled upon seeing the child’s face.

At the same time, Rosalie’s anxious and worried voice came not far away. “Samson!”

Rosalie rushed over, glanced at Genevieve, and pulled Samson into her arms before crying in distress as if Genevieve had bullied her son.

The crying of the mother–son pair quickly attracted many onlookers.

Soon after, Anthony also ran over from the side. His sleeves were rolled up to his forearms, and he emitted a chilly aura.

When he saw the commotion, his face instantly fell as he stared at Genevieve sharply.

Rosalie sobbed, “Ms. Lawrence, even if I’ve done you wrong, you shouldn’t lay hands on my child. He’s only two years old. Please spare him!”

Genevieve was rendered speechless at this scene, finding everything hilarious. ‘Is this Rosalie woman addicted to acting or something?‘ she wondered. She was even getting. rather bored and tired of having to deal with Rosalie’s tricks.

Anthony quietly carried Samson and coaxed him gently, his eyes full of tenderness and affection for the child. The mix of coldness and gentleness in his aura blended particularly well in him.

Then, he turned to Genevieve with a sharper gaze and frowned slightly. “Why are you here? Are you following us?” he questioned with anger and indifference.

Genevieve’s heart skipped a beat, and her already poor mood became worse. She snorted lightly. “Do you think everyone who comes here wants something to do with you? Who the hell do you think you are?”

Samson gradually stopped crying in Anthony’s embrace. He was indeed more dependent on his father.

Genevieve found this scene an eyesore, and the thought of the purpose of her visit here. made her even more bitter.

She could barely breathe, as if something had weighed down on her chest. The suffocating feeling even caused a slight sinking pain in her lower abdomen.

Rosalie spoke up weakly. “Samson’s running a fever, so Anthony and I brought him here to see a doctor. But he suddenly went missing when we turned around. It’s too coincidental that he’s found to be with you. What are you trying to do, Ms. Lawrence?”

She was implying that Genevieve had abducted Samson!
