When She Stops Playing Nice Chapter 39

Chapter 39
Peter raised his head, only to be met with the dark soles of the shoes.
Before he could even see who it was, he was knocked askew by a foot.
Just as Peter was about to curse, he struggled to look up and recognized who it was.
It was Gabriel, the head of the Jackson Group.
Peter looked at Gabriel’s sullen expression, feeling a bit weak in the knees. He meekly allowed Gabriel to step on him and forced a smile, asking. “Mr. Jackson, is there something I can help you with?”
Gabriel, with a cold face, said. “Why are you lying on the ground? You almost tripped me.”
Peter’s smile stiffened on his face as he said, “Sorry for blocking your way, Mr. Jackson, I’ll get up right away.”
“Can you still get up? Do you need someone to help you?” Gabriel asked.
“Yes,” Peter answered in a trembling voice.
Gabriel moved his foot away, leaving a clear shoeprint on Peter’s face, which looked ridiculous.
Peter got up trembling.
When Gabriel looked at Gina, his expression softened, and there was even a smile in his deep and cold eyes.
“Gina, what a coincidence.”
Gina didn’t know why he was here, but she still cooperated and said, “Truly a coincidence.”
If she hadn’t told Gabriel on the phone yesterday that she was coming to Vaprebara Church, he wouldn’t be here.
“What happened!” Gabriel asked.
His gaze turned cold as it fell on Peter, indicating that he wanted Peter to explain.
Peter’s heart pounded. He hadn’t expected Gina to know Gabriel, the all-powerful figure in Wrinster.
Just a moment ago, he had been disrespectful to Gina, even considering laying hands on her.
Peter was done for.
Peter’s lips trembled slightly as he said, “The lady asked me to admit my mistakes to those I deceived. I’ll go now and tell them that I’m just a fraudster who cheats people, and I’ll give them their money back.”
Gina raised an eyebrow faintly and said, “I didn’t expect you to be so cooperative, Mr. Lennon. So, will you handle exposing your own affairs, or should I take care of it?”
She handed all the evidence from the canvas bag to Peter.
Peter’s smile was more like a cry. He felt that both Gina and Gabriel spoke with such sinister undertones.
He took the evidence from Gina’s hand and said, “Okay, Miss Miller, rest assured. I’ll take care of what you instructed.”

Chapter 39
Gina crossed her hands in front of her and said, “Good, then go and do it quickly. I’m running out of patience and want to see results as soon as possible.
“Yes.” Peter didn’t even bother to wipe the shoe print off his face and hurried towards Blessing Tower.
Gina remained indifferent as ever. She asked Gabriel, “Why didn’t you ask me first? Why intervene against him? Maybe I’m bullying him?”
“You wouldn’t. You must have your reasons for targeting someone, and I know you, Gina. You’re kind-hearted and wouldn’t target someone without a reason.” Gabriel chose to unconditionally stand by her side.
Gina only saw Olivia being favored by Ella and her six brothers, and she had never met someone who would support her like this.
Now, hearing Gabriel’s words, Gina felt a strange emotion.
Gina came to her senses and asked, “What if I’m a bully?”
Gabriel’s gaze was firm and resolute as he said, “Then I’ll still be by your side. Do you need a helper? How about I be your
assistant?”
Hearing that, Gina smiled sincerely, “Would it be expensive to hire you?”
“It’s free”
Gabriel paused for a moment, then added, “But only for you.”
For some reason, Gina’s cheeks felt hot, and she felt a strange sensation in her heart,
She had never felt this way before.
“Are you leaving? Shall I accompany you home?” Gabriel asked.
Gina shook her head and said, “I still need Peter’s help with something. I have to wait for him to deal with his own mess.”
“Then may I accompany you for a stroll!”
“Sure.” Gina agreed.
Gabriel walked alongside her. This time, Gina felt that she didn’t mind Gabriel’s proximity as much. In fact, she felt relaxed and at ease.
There were still many fortune-telling booths in the church.
Gina watched the people lining up to have their fortunes told and light incense. She asked Gabriel, “Do you believe in this
stuff?”
Gabriel shook his head and replied, “No.”
If there were truly mysterious forces, then when he was in danger, someone should be coming to save him from peril.
His gaze softened as it fell on C i n a.
“It’s better to rely on oneself, Gabriel said.

Chapter 39
Gina was somewhat surprised. It seemed that some of her belief’s were quite compatible with Gabriel’s.
They walked past a fortune-telling booth.
The fortune-teller warmly said. “Sir, Miss, would you like to have your marriage fortune told?”
Gina was not interested at all and was about to leave.
“You two really make a perfect match, Why not give it a try?”
The words “perfect match made Gabriel pause. “How much for a reading?” he asked.
40 dollars, the fortune-teller said.
Gina was confused.
Didn’t he say he didn’t believe in this!
“What are you doing?” Gina was puzzled.
Just for fun.”
There was a faint smile on Gabriel’s lips.
He took Gina’s hand and said to the fortune-teller, “Tell us about our marriage fortune.”
Gina was stunned.
They had no relationship at all.
But Gina didn’t find it annoying when Gabriel held her hand.
“Alright. The fortune-teller happily agreed.
86%1
And so, he began his process, first asking Gabriel and Gina to show him their palms and then moving his fingers skillfully.
It seemed quite authentic.
The fortune-teller stroked his beard and said, “I didn’t make a mistake. You two are truly meant to be together. Your marriage is destined, and you will be happy. Although there may be some obstacles in your relationship, you two will overcome them and live happily ever after.”
Gina didn’t take the fortune-teller’s words seriously at all.
She glanced at Gabriel.
Gabriel’s eyes were smiling, and he unconsciously tightened his grip on her hand.
He seemed to be in a good mood.
Gabriel then took out 400 dollars and gave it to the fortune-teller.
The fortune-teller’s eyes widened and asked, “What does this mean, sir?”
“Continue.”
