Seeing the tall man continue to walk without any intention of waiting, the woman sped up to catch up with him.

"Hey you, slow down!" she shouted. "People always say that you can never trust a man's words, but I never took it seriously. Now I know it's true! It hasn't even been a year and you already can't wait to get a divorce! Nowadays you don't want to talk to me at all. I bet you've forgotten all those times you asked me out. Now, you cheated on me with another woman! I knew it!

I can't believe I didn't see through your nice guy act. If I had seen you through, I would't have said yes when you knelt down in front of my home, and I should have let you kneel there as you liked!"

No matter what the woman threw his way, the man continued walking without saying anything. He had gotten tired of her long ago and didn't care about her at all.

"Remember our deal? The apartment is mine. Everything inside it is mine. The refrigerator, the microwave oven, the cooker! You're not getting anything!"

The woman shouted, finally catching up to the man and grabbing his arm. She wasn't going to let go of him until he said something she wanted to hear.

"Fine, it's all yours! Take whatever you like, " the man replied impatiently. He pulled his arm out of her grip and walked faster.

"You really don't want anything?" the woman prodded, unsatisfied with his reply. Her voice was furious but her eyes were brimming with tears. "I see how it is! You want nothing but the bitch!"

The man adjusted his sunglasses before glancing at her with a frown. All this was nothing but an act so that they could walk into the court without being recognized. Why was she crying?

"I already told you, there wasn't another woman. Whether you believe it or not is up to you, " he said in no hurry. He didn't even spare a glance at the crowd of journalists at the gate of the court when he passed by them.

The journalists watched the arguing pair walk into the court.

They were waiting for something big to happen, not even caring about the hot weather outside.

To beat the heat, they ate ice-creams as they chatted with each other.

"Look, I bet they're going to get a divorce. The quicker people get married, the quicker they get divorced."

"Exactly! Young people today think of marriage as a game. They get married when they barely know each other. Their morals are getting worse day by day."

Once the man was sure that the journalists at the gate couldn't see them anymore, he slowed down, took off his sunglasses, and turned to his woman.

"Young lady, I never knew that you are such a good actress, " he teased.

The desperate expression on the woman's face was gone, now replaced by a big smile. "There's a lot you don't know about me, " she said slyly.

The man and woman were Hiram and Rachel. Hiram, who usually wore formal suits, was wearing a casual T-shirt and jeans. He looked less like the serious president of Stream Company and more like a bright and promising young man who had just graduated from

heard of. The details of all the properties were listed in the agreement, including their addresses. According to the agreement, Rachel would get half of all those properties.

"Good question, Rachel! But let me answer this one for Hiram. If he's agreeing to such an agreement, it means he's never going to let you go for the rest of your life. Believe me. So, stop worrying about him and think it over. I can tell you that this is much more complicated than the previous divorce agreement, " Luke said.

He had more to add, but after feeling Hiram's cold gaze on him, he hastily turned around and went upstairs.

"Don't listen to him. All I want to do is make sure that you'll get what you deserve in case something bad happens, " said Hiram in a low voice. He signed his name on the last page. He continued, "Since I promised that I'll sign a new agreement, I've to take out something from my pocket, right?"

Rachel hesitated for a while, but then she decided to stop overthinking and finally signed.

All in all, if Hiram gave her half of his property, he would never divorce her again. Otherwise, he would be the dumbest man alive.

Ever since the moment Rachel agreed to marry Hiram, she hadn't thought of anything else but living happily together forever.

A ghost of a smile appeared on Hiram's face as he watched Rachel sign her name.

'Okay, young lady, I'll have you in the palm of my hand for the rest of your life, " he thought to himself.

What both Rachel and Luke didn't know was, Luke was completely right except for one thing.

Hiram Rong never did business that he wouldn't profit from. Every business he put his money into repaid him by tenfold at least.

He had his hidden motives.

When everything was over, Hiram and Rachel walked to the gate of the court.

But this time, they weren't lucky enough.

A journalist who had already seen Hiram twice in person finally got a good look at his face and recognized him immediately. He ran to Hiram with his camera.

"Mr. Rong!"
