Scarlett was afraid that her lies would be exposed, so she decided to find an excuse to escape halfway. Unexpectedly, Jack's gentle voice rang in her ear. He reached out and gently stroked her hair, "Are you having a party with friends?"

"You... Why are you here?" Scarlett was stunned and couldn't close her mouth.

Jack looked at her with a faint smile, "I happened to pass by. Is it over here? Go to a place with me."

With a gentle smile, Scarlett nodded obediently and followed him out. She looked at him with expectation, "Jack, where are we going?"

Jack's lips curled up and his whole body was filled with a murderous look. "Scarlett, what did the sixth term of the agreement?"

"I..."

With a loud bang in her mind, Scarlett felt the fierce killing intent. She made a cold meditation and lowered her head, not daring to look at him.

Indeed, the two of them had signed an agreement and pretended to be a couple temporarily, but only in the place that Jack had agreed. As for other times, the two of them had nothing to do with each other. The sixth term was that it clearly forbade Scarlett to say anything in front of others.

Jack wanted to use this fake relationship with her to irritate Rachel, which didn't mean that Scarlett could use it to swagger around outside.

He said coldly, "You won't forget it so soon. What did I tell you when we signed the agreement?"

"I know, I know."

Scarlett panicked and kept thinking about how to make up an excuse. "Well, Jack, they just asked me what happened on the newspaper, so I replied them. I didn't say anything else!"

Jack glanced at her coldly, "If I know it again, you should know the consequences!"

Seeing that he was about to leave, Scarlett wanted to catch up with him in a hurry, but she was so scared just now that her legs were weak. After only two steps, she knelt down on the ground.

The work in the executive department was very leisurely. Rachel had been sitting there for the whole morning. When she just got up and went to the tea room to pour a cup of water, she was about to go back to her office when a colleague shouted, "Who is available? Can someone send some documents to the outpatient surgery department? I'm really tired."

Everyone shook their heads and didn't want to make trouble.

Rachel stopped and smiled, "Give me the file. I can help you."

The colleague looked at her swollen belly and said shyly, "No, thanks. I'll send it to there when I go to the canteen."

"It's okay. It's not troublesome."

It was not because Rachel was warm-hearted, but because she had been sitting here for so long today, she really wanted to go out and take two steps. This was just the right time.

Hearing what Rachel said, the colleague hesitated for a while, but still handed the document to her with a smile, "Thank you."

Putting the teacup back to her office, Rachel took the do

this, Marcus thought that she was not feeling well, so he reached out to feel the temperature on her forehead. "You don't have a fever, why do you suddenly lose your appetite? I bought your favorite steamed buns and millet porridge."

When she saw the man swaying in front of her, Celia couldn't help but think of what the surgical nurse had just said. She closed her eyes irritably and said coldly, "I just have no appetite. Why do you have so many questions?"

Marcus was stunned for a moment. They were fine last night. Why was she so angry in the early morning?

He leaned forward shamelessly and said carefully, "Okay, then you don't eat."

"Why not? You already bought them." Celia seemed to be making trouble out of nothing.

Marcus frowned and asked tentatively, "Then I'll eat?"

"Take them to your own home. Don't stay here. It's annoying to see you!" Celia crossed her arms over her chest and turned her head away.

Birds of a feather flock together. Marcus was afraid it won't be long before he becomes the second Jack!

Marcus touched his nose, confused and aggrieved. He had to sit in the living room and wait until her anger dissipated.

He didn't expect that she was now involved for no reason because of his best friend.

For the whole day, Rachel became a hot topic in other people's eyes, but she seemed not to notice it and had been busy with her work. When it was time to get off work, she didn't stay any longer and directly turned off the computer and left.

When they just arrived at the door and were about to take a taxi, a black car stopped in front of them. The window was slowly rolled down. Jack said in a deep voice, "Get in the car."

As if she hadn't heard it, Rachel walked around the corner indifferently and walked to the back of the car. She waved at a taxi that was slowly coming. When Jack got out of the car, he saw the taxi driving out. It was too late to stop it.
