Submitting To My Ex-Wife by Daisy Woods Chapter 13

Chapter 13

When Marc hurriedly arrived at the apartment, Clarissa was kneeling on the ground, sobbing with her face covered.

“Clarissa.”

As soon as Clarissa saw Marc, she rushed toward him and threw herself into his arms

as if he were her savior, exclaiming, “Marc, help me!”

Marc noticed that Clarissa had a bright red left cheek. His expression immediately

turned cold, and his face was filled with displeasure. He turned to Phoenix and

asked, “Mother, why didn’t you inform me before you came?”

The eldest daughter of the Males family, Phoenix Males, even sitting in a wheelchair, exuded an imposing presence and maintained the posture of an upper–class. Her narrow and sharp eyes resembled Marc’s, and her tone was extremely cold.

“Have you informed me before you divorced and hid your mistress here?”

She was wearing a traditional dress and draped a thin blanket over her legs, which was intricately embroidered by Pearl. The shawl she was wearing was also a gift

from Pearl.

Phoenix raised her hand, and the maid Harper Slater, who was standing behind her, immediately understood and lit a cigarette for her.

Marc frowned. “Clarissa’s health is not good. Please do not smoke in front of her.”

“Is that so?”

Phoenix exhaled a puff of smoke and glanced at the coffee table. “She has stomach cancer and still drinks coffee leisurely. I haven’t noticed anything wrong with her health. On the other hand, Pearl has hypoglycemia, but I haven’t heard you care. about her even once.”

“Pearl again!” said Marc inwardly.

He had a meaningful expression, saying coldly, “I have already divorced Pearl. There is no point in mentioning her.”

Phoenix looked at Marc’s cold and stern expression. Her lips lifted in a mocking manner. “You are heartless, just like your father. If I had known that I would go through so much hardship to give birth to a scum like you, I wouldn’t have given birth to you.”

When it came to his father, Marc tightly pressed his thin lips and revealed a somewhat colder expression.

“If we can’t talk about Pearl, let’s talk about this woman.”

Phoenix took a puff of her cigarette and looked at the woman hiding in the arms of Marc and crying pitifully. She looked at Clarissa disdainfully. “Enough! What are you pretending for in front of me? You have learned all the wrong skills, just like your shameless aunt. You were eloquently arguing with me just now. Why are you acting weak now? Waiting for your man to stand up for you? Don’t forget, he is my son.”

Clarissa was biting her lip. She was furious inside but didn’t dare to show it. She only knelt down with teary eyes from Marc’s embrace, begging Phoenix in a pitiful tone.

“Mrs. Males, I understand that you dislike me because of my aunt’s past conflicts with you. My aunt and Mr. Hayes were truly in love back then, just like how Marc and

I have loved each other for many years. If it weren’t for the family issues we had and your strong opposition, I wouldn’t have gone abroad, nor would I have broken up. with Marc. We would have been happily married by now, and you might have event

held your grandchild in your arms.”

“Humph! What a fancy dream!”

Phoenix could not bear to listen any longer and interrupted Clarissa coldly, “Let me

tell you, even if all the women in the world were to die and my son was to live a

lonely life until he died, I would never let him marry you. Do you understand?”

“The damn old witch!” said Clarissa inwardly.

She clenched her teeth, resisting the urge to overturn Clarissa’s wheelchair. “If it weren’t for her dominant tactics back then, the Santos family would not have fallen into bankruptcy, and I wouldn’t have suffered so much abroad!

“All of this was caused by this woman. I wish I could torture her to death to alleviate the hatred in my heart!” she thought to herself.

Marc reached out his hand and pulled Clarissa up, standing in front of her and facing

Phoenix’s cold gaze. “Mom, I can make decisions about marriage on my own, so don’t worry about it. Thomas, please send my mom home.”

Making a great effort to minimize his presence, Thomas stood aside and approached

to ask Phoenix to leave reluctantly.

“My son has grown independent and is now chasing his mother away. Good!”

Phoenix clapped her hands and sneered, “Son, your father betrayed me back then and caused me to be crippled. If you dare to marry her, I will give you a big gift on

As Marc watched Phoenix leave decisively, his fists slowly tightened by his sides, the bones in his fingers cracking. Suddenly, he slammed his fist against the wall, causing the wall to tremble.

Clarissa was taken aback. “Marc…”

After teaching Tina a lesson, Pearl went back to her room to remove her makeup and take a shower.

Although she was lying in bed, she didn’t have a trace of sleepiness. Her mind was

filled with information about Clarissa.

In fact, she had known who Clarissa was for a long time and was aware of the

complicated history between the Santos and Males families. However, she couldn’t

understand why Marc insisted on marrying Clarissa.

If it were her, if someone dared to take away her father and cripple her mother’s

legs, she would feel a burning desire to kill that woman and would even wish to kill her entire family. “How is it possible for Marc to get along with that woman’s family?

“He appears quite rational and not like someone with a man addled by love. Could it be that he is also a hypocrite, behaving this way only toward the women he likes?”

wondered Pearl.

She tossed and turned, becoming more and more annoyed. Unable to fall asleep, she got up and dialed a number finally. “Didn’t you say you’d kill the fatted calf for my coming back? Well, tonight would be a good time. I want to have a drink.”

The night fell as dark as ink, yet the Beverland Hotel shone as brightly as daylight.

This was the largest luxury club in Nanston. It offered VIP membership and allowed

entry through facial recognition technology. The security guards at the entrance had scanning eyes and refused entry to unfamiliar faces without further ado.

A man wearing sunglasses stood at the door with an indifferent expression. Event

when he saw acquaintances, he would often ignore them until he caught sight of a

red Porsche driving into view, at which point a hint of delight appeared on his face.

He took small steps forward and opened the car door. “I thought you weren’t

coming. I’ve been waiting for you for half an hour.”

“You should have just waited inside. Why are you waiting outside?” asked Pearl.

She took off her shoes and put on a pair of golden high heels. She stepped out of the car, wearing a red suspender dress, looking both cool and wild. The guards at the

door were stunned.

“Hubert has a new lover? This lady is quite stunning,” they thought to themselves.

Hubert looked at Pearl’s outfit and nodded in satisfaction. “It looks so much better

than the way you dress like an old nun all day long.”

“If you can’t speak, then keep quiet.”

Pearl gave a disgruntled glance at the young man and followed him into the room smoothly. Hubert wanted to take her to a private room, but she shook her head and sat at the bar instead, saying, “The private room is so boring. I can still check out hot guys here.”

She gestured to the bar and ordered a glass of vodka. She drank it down like water without flinching. Hubert said, “Your alcohol tolerance isn’t very good. Don’t drink

A disturbance was caused by some customers in the private room, and the manager

came over to invite Hubert to handle the situation.

“I will take a look. Wait for me here, and do not wander around.”

Pearl waved her hand, gesturing him to hurry.

It had been a long time since she last stepped foot in such a bustling nightlife scene and even longer since she last had a drink. Sipping carefully from each glass, the alcohol gradually went to her head, leaving her feeling dizzy and disoriented. Hot men approached her one by one, hoping to strike up a conversation.

“Miss, are you alone? May I invite you for a drink?”

Pearl’s cheeks turned rosy as she looked at the man and gently shook her index

finger. “No. You’re too ugly, hurting my eyes.”

are you

“Woman, asking for a beating?” The person who was called ugly became angry and was about to hit Pearl, but his wrist was held by someone. A tall man walked over and said, “What’s the point of hitting a woman? Why don’t we spar?”

The man’s wrist was hurt. Realizing that he couldn’t win the fight, he walked away

silently, seething with anger inside.

The tall and handsome man looked at Pearl, his dignified face showing a slight smile. His charming eyes raised slightly. “Miss, what’s the point in just drinking? Would you mind honoring me with a dance?”

Pearl lifted her watery eyes and glanced at the good–looking man. With a naive grin,

she said, “You are handsome. So, you have the final say.”
