Her Billionaire Husband

Chapter 21


Chapter 21. When Matthew saw her feeling all dumbfounded with a face of frustration and despair, he was a little surprised. After all, in the entire city of Bloomstead, countless women would chase after him and break their bones in the pursuit to conceive his child. However, though Veronica had his child, it made him feel that she was in misery. What Veronica once said came to his mind. “Although you’re rich and good-looking, Matthew, not every woman is dying to be married to you, so you don’t have to be so smug all the time. ”As long as you quit your job in the club, I will assemble a medical expert team to. treat your father immediately-free of charge for any operations. He stood in front of her, looking down at her with cold and arrogant eyes. When she heard his words, her eyelids drooped slightly, and her depressed face remained mostly void of emotion. “So, if I quit my job, but I abort the child, will you still treat my dad?”. She didn’t get any answer from the man. When she raised her eyes to meet his, she stared at him with a pained gaze for a few seconds. He said, “Don’t be delusional”. She chuckled self-deprecatingly. “Heh. So please don’t package it as if it’s something noble. You want me to give birth to a child for you, and you will treat my dad in exchange. Isn’t it just an equivalent transaction?”. Those doctors from the expert group couldn’t be hired with money. How could Veronica not see reality clearly?. “You can always make other demands as well. Matthew spoke in a low voice. “I don’t-“Before she continued with her sentence, Veronica had a moment of epiphany and she said, “If you can help me investigate my parents’ car accident, I will. do it. If a child could exchange for the rehabilitation of her father, and give them justice for the car accident…. Veronica was naturally more than willing to do it. Although doing this would be bad for the child in her womb, she knew that she was not powerful enough to go against Matthew. If he really wanted her to give birth to this child, there would be countless ways for him to do so. Rather than stubbomly resisting, it was better for her to get something of equal value in exchange. “Fine by me. Matthew readily agreed. Veronica pursed her lips lightly. Her straight back hunched over a little, and she lowered her head weakly to look down at the ground, saying nothing. She was incompetent. It was exactly because of her incompetence that made her unable to protect her adoptive parents, and she couldn’t even control her own right to have children. She wanted to become stronger, but she didn’t know where to start. “However, you must move to the Kings Residence

“I’ll do that in a few days. I want some time to myself to calm down. Veronica sighed deeply and turned h er head to look at the vehicles pass ing by on the road, feeling annoyed. Matthew acqu iesced to he r condition. Then, he go t into the c ar and left. As she looked at the car that was driving a way, Veronica suddenly felt shivers all ove r her body, as if she was in an ice cellar. He only saw her as a ‘reproduc tive tool’; otherwise, how wou ld he treat her so mercilessly? . Back at t he Kings Residence. After Matthew r eturned home, h e saw Elizabeth. “How i s Vero nica?” . As soon as she saw him, Elizabeth immedia tely asked about Veronica, but in fact, s he cared more about the child in her womb. Matthew’s sharp eyebrows and eyes showed nothing but coldness . “I can allow Veronica Murphy to give birth to a child for t he Kings Family–but my woman must be the right match for me. Recently, Mat thew had been thinking a lot . In addition to that, he had frequent contact with Tiffany Larson and found tha t she had a good character, and she was considered a rather talented and beaut iful woman in Bloomstead-she was the best choice to marry into the Kings Family . “What are you talking about? What is good wi th that Tiffany girl?” . Elizabeth was very un happy when she heard what Matthew had said. “Just based on the fact that she saved my life, it would ma ke sense for me to marry her. He had suspected Tiffany before, a nd even suspected that the car acc ident had something to do with her. Later, after he ordered Thomas to further inves tigate the incident that day again, he found ou t that it really had nothing to do with Tiffany. “Remember I said back then that whoever is pregnant with your child is whoever you wil l marry? My words don’t count now, do they?” . Elizabeth really like d Veronica. “Our family is a noble family, and this Veronica is nothing at all. She is n ot worthy to be the future mistress of our family in any way. We deal with w ealthy families everyday. Do you think she is someone we can show the world?” . This was Ma tthew’s way of thinking. Love? He wanted nothing to do with it. The only thing he cared about was his own . interests, and the idea of making the Kings Family bigger and stronger. If he had to marry Veronica just bec ause she had his child, it would do nothing but hinder the Kings Family. What he said ca used Elizabeth t o be speechless. After all, she had to admit that for the family’s future, Tiffan y was naturally the best choice. “But that child really does belong to Veronica. What if word about it spre ad in the future? What do we do then?” . “I will give her a lot of compensation. As for the child, I will get engaged to Tiffany as soon as possible and keep her from going out for the time being. When Veronica’s child is born, I will claim that the child was born to me and Tiffany

Then, we will get married. He had long fi gured out how t o deal with it. Elizabeth sighed and remained silent for a long time. Soon, she waved her hand dis missively. “Whatever. I’m too old to be teaching you how to make your decisions. H owever, don’t treat Veronica badly. Although she looks mediocre, she is a good girl . -one tha t’s rarel y found. Elizabeth was the one that used the drug, but the mistake was that it was Veronica who slept with Matthew. For this reason, Elizabeth wanted Matthew to be responsible for Veronica, but Matthew had always had his own opinion since he w as a child, and it was not something she could change about him. With this in mind, Elizabet h got up, walked to her roo m with her cane, and went to . At that moment, Veronica, who was still i n a daze on the side of the road, was sta rtled by the ringing of her mobile phone. As she raised her phon e, she saw Xavier’s nam e pop up on the screen. “Roni, didn’t you say that you’ d buy me dinner? What, now? Are you going back on your words?” . On the other end of the phone rang Xav ier’s mocking voice. Even through the phone, she could also feel Xavier’s car efree and refreshing nature. For that spli t second, she envied Xavier. She envied him for coming from a wealthy family. Even if he was ridiculed by everyone, he could s till live his own life and do whatever he wanted. “Of course not! Let’s meet at John’s at Pin es Street in an hour. “Alrighty! I will go right away. Do you ne ed me to pick you up?” . “N ah . “Okay, see you later. After hanging up the phone , Veronica rode her motorc ycle to the Twilight Club. Once she arrived, she met the manager at the club and asked to resign. The manager readily agreed and ordered the finan ce department to settle her salary immediately at that time. She knew that Twilight Club was under Matthe w’s name, so she was not surprised that the manager agreed to her resignation so readily. After that, she bid goodbye to her friends in the security depart ment. As Cody was not around, Veronica thought she could only hav e the opportunity to invite Cody to dinner the next time they met. After leaving the clubhouse, she rode to John’s o n Pines Street. When she arrived, Xavier’s allurin g sapphire blue Maserati was already parked aside. He was sitting in the car and playing with his mobi le phone, waiting for her. All of a sudden, Veronica felt th at although Xavier was a playboy, he was more humane than Matthew. She stepped forward and k nocked on the car window, and through the half-slit . window, she said to Xavier, “You’re flirting with girls again? You’re always playing around girls all day long-don’t you know that karma’s a b*tch?”
