Submitting To My Ex-Wife by Daisy Woods Chapter 44

Chapter 44

“You’re finally here.”

Lucas stood up. Marc paused and followed suit.

Pearl was dressed very simply and casually today. She was wearing a light blue shirt with white straight pants and a pair of pearl–wrapped high heels. Her light gray sweater was simply draped behind her and tied in front of her.

The clothes were simple, but Pearl looked indescribably fashionable.

Marc narrowed his eyes slightly. Every time Pearl appeared, she would always give him a thousand surprises, but none of them were like his ex–wife.

In the past, Peart was always dressed in warm pajamas in front of him. Her hair was long and draped behind her back or tied into a bun. She looked like a good wife.

It wasn’t that Marc didn’t like Pearl like that. He just felt that Pearl, at that time, was like a dummy who was deliberately trying to please him at all times.

That feeling made Marc very uncomfortable.

The one in front of Marc now was Pearl’s true self.

Although it made Marc feel a little unfamiliar from time to time, it looked extremely

comfortable.

“I’ve been waiting for you for a long time.” Lucas stretched out his arm to hug Pearl from afar, but he was stopped by her finger and pushed away.

Pearl retracted her finger in disdain and said coldly, “Don’t hug me the moment you see me. Do I know you very well?”

Due to Lucas’s actions, Marc furrowed his brow, but thanks to Pearl’s words, his brow relaxed, and he smiled in satisfaction. “Knowing how to refuse is a good thing.”

Lucas didn’t care. He smiled and winked at Pearl, saying, “We’ll get closer after a few more hugs.”

Chapter 44

Pearl had no intention of getting closer to Lucas. She walked straight to the elevator.

“You should give me a heads–up next time you plan to visit. My schedule can be unpredictable, and if you come all this way only to find me unavailable, wouldn’t that be me neglecting you, Mr. Lucas?”

Although Pearl’s words sounded polite, she was actually expressing her displeasure at Lucas’s unannounced and early arrival.

Lucas waved his hand to signal Marc to follow. Then, he replied to Pearl, “It’s alright. I’m an idle person. I’ve always done whatever I want. I came to look for you because I missed you. I came so early today because Marc was urging me to do so.”

Pearl took the express elevator to the CEO’s office, with Lucas following closely behind. However, as Marc was about to board the elevator, he was stopped by a bodyguard.

Lucas hurriedly said, “We came together.”

Then, Lucas looked at Pearl. “Marc is also very interested in the horse ranch business and wants to work with us.”

Pearl looked at Lucas expressionlessly. “I only agreed to cooperate with you.”

“Having one more partner wouldn’t hurt, would it?” Lucas grinned and winked at Marc, who was left outside the elevator, gesturing for him to speak up quickly.

Thomas was about to explode in anger. But Marc looked calm and businesslike.

“Ms. Woolery, I also want to participate in the business of the horse ranch in the northern

suburbs.”

Pearl looked at Marc calmly. Her clear eyes were emotionless as she sized him up coldly for a while. Her red lips parted slightly as she spat out an indifferent sentence.

“You want to work with me? Who are you?”

Marc was stunned for a moment.

The elevator slowly closed and ascended. Just like that, Marc was mercilessly abandoned by his ex–wife at the elevator door.

Laughter filled the CEO’s office.

Lucas followed behind Pearl. He really could not hold it in anymore and was about to faint from laughter. This caused everyone in the CEO’s office to look over.

Pearl glanced at Lucas with disdain. “Are you done laughing?”

“I’m sorry. I really can’t help it… It’s too ridiculous!”

Lucas laughed until he was about to cry. He pointed outside and said to Pearl, “You don’t

know how arrogant Marc is. He’s always been the one giving others attitude, but you actually, you actually…”

There was another burst of laughter. Lucas imitated Pearl’s posture and voice. “You want to work with me? Who are you?”

Lucas couldn’t help but praise Pearl. “You’re too cool!”

Pearl could not be bothered with Lucas. She turned around and said to Mason, who could not stand it anymore, “Go and organize the documents about the horse ranch. We will leave at 9:15 sharp.”

“Yes.” Mason received the order and left, closing the door behind him.

The moment the door closed, Mason clenched his fist and quietly exclaimed, “Yeah!”

While Mason didn’t express it as exuberantly as Lucas, he also found satisfaction in Pearl’s attitude toward Marc just now. Marc had gone too far when he mistreated Pearl last night. He deserved to be embarrassed!

The Vice President, Samuel, came to the CEO’s office and saw Mason’s series of actions and expressions from afar. “What are you doing?”

“Mr. Goodman.” Mason quickly restrained his attitude and posture. Under Samuel’s questioning, Mason briefly recounted what happened last night and this morning.

At that, Samuel frowned.

It was Marc again?

What did Pearl do during the three years she was missing in Machodean? Why did she come back so different, so intense? What had caused her to be so emotionally wounded and determined?

Could all of this be related to Marc?

With that thought in mind, Samuel handed the documents in his hand to Mason and turned around to take the elevator down. He wanted to ask about it.

In the hall on the first floor, Thomas stood quietly behind Marc, carefully watching Marc’s expression

Thomas was afraid that Marc would tear down the entire building if he was angry.

Thomas had followed Marc for so many years. This was the first time Marc had taken the initiative to ask for a collaboration. He did not expect to be rejected

Last time, Marc was also rejected here.

Marc was rejected by the same person.

Last time, Pearl said, “I’m not free. I don’t want to see him. He wants to see me? Maybe in

his next life.”

This time, Pearl said, “Who are you?”

Pearl really didn’t take Marc seriously at all.

If it were anyone else who dared to treat them like this, Thomas would have dismantled the Woolery Group even without Marc’s instructions.

However, it was Pearl who embarrassed them. The Woolery Group was Pearl’s territory. It was the couple’s matter, and as an assistant, he didn’t dare to intervene or say anything, so

he just stood there quietly.

“Mr. Males, why don’t we come back another day?”

Marc pursed his lips tightly. At this moment, he could not describe what he was feeling.

Marc was disappointed, angry, and indescribably embarrassed.

Chapter 44

Pearl actually asked Marc who he was.

Was Pearl addicted to pretending not to know Marc?

Also, why was Lucas allowed to go up with Pearl?

Wasn’t Pearl afraid that she would be tricked by that cunning man? She actually dared to cooperate with Lucas!

“Sir, you’re here again?”

A sweet and crisp voice sounded in Marc’s ear. It was the receptionist who had helped Marc call previously. Her name was Elowen Hawthorn.

Elowen smiled when she saw the handsome man. “You’re here to see Ms. Woolery, right? Do you have an appointment this time?”

“Yes,” Marc replied in all seriousness.

Thomas quickly glanced at Marc. Huh?

Elowen didn’t check and directly led the way. “Alright, this way, please. I’ll bring you up.”

When Samuel came down, the lobby was empty. He went to the front desk and asked, “Has Mr. Males left?”

Another receptionist said, “No, he just went up.”
