Chapter: 1499

Having fought Stefan for years, he dared say he knew Stefan better than Renee. From a certain perspective, they were like eternal rivals-if either of them won, their dynasty won as well.

And Quinton was convinced that if every Everheart could see him now, they would wish for his triumph!

“Indeed, Mr. Everheart. I must agree that Stefan Hunt is still interested in Miss Everheart why else would he release you just because she asked, even proposing a partnership?”

“Still interested?!”Quinton snorted in disdain. “Him?!”

That callous man was marrying another woman soon—there certainly were no lingering attachments there!

“I don’t get it. If it’s not because he still has feelings for Miss Everheart, why would they

release you, even offering a partnership?”

“Hah! What other reason could he have?” Quinton scowled fiercely. “He’s a businessman, and self-gain is everything to him. He has no feelings for my sister—he just sees value, and if I’m not mistaken, he’s up to the same tricks he was up to back then.”

Chase’s expression turned solemn. “That’s probably true. He only won back then because of his ability to sweet-talk women. Poor Miss Garcia-”

“Shut up!” Quinton’s expression contorted with rage. “Didn’t I warn you before never to

mention that name?!”

“I-I’m sorry…” Chase promptly lowered his head and apologized gingerly. “I just thought you were over it since you and Miss Everheart acknowledged each other. So…”

“I hate betrayals the most, especially when it’s someone I gave my heart to. That is why I will never rest until she and that pig Stefan are dead!” Quinton’s eyes blazed with hatred.

His suffering in the past was just like the scars on his face- it itched on rainy days even if he tried to forget.

How could he let it go when it constantly tormented him?

Chase lowered his head and stayed silent. He tucked Quinton in before leaving the room somberly. However, he had just turned into a corner when his vision turned black-someone had blinded him!

“Who’s there?” Chase immediately started struggling in his attacker’s grip, and elbowed the person hard.

“Calm down, it’s just me.” Renee awkwardly removed her hand from the man’s eyes and rubbed her aching stomach. ”I was just messing with you! I didn’t expect that you’d be so skilled at martial arts-that elbow of yours nearly killed me!”

“Oh, it’s you, Miss Everheart! I’m so sorry, please punish me as you see fit.” Chase lowered his head guiltily, about to kneel. He was wearing a white suit, which made him look gentle and elegant.

“Please don’t. You don’t have to be so careful in front of me, I’m not like my brother.” Renee glanced at Quinton’s bedroom, then quietly asked, “Is my brother asleep?”

“Yes, Miss Everheart.”

“Let’s go and grab a bite then.”

“Miss Everheart, we can’t. You’re my superior, so how-”

“Chase, I told you before that I’m not my brother. Let’s go.” Renee dragged him to a street nearby that was full of hawker stalls.

“Sir, we’d like to order burgers, chips, and two dozen beers!” She casually shouted at the owner who was busy cooking.
