Seeing that she had returned to normal, Kailey breathed a sigh of relief. Then she thought of her serious business coming here today and asked, "Cousin, our bar has been open for a week and the business is good. We are thinking about opening a branch shop. Cousin, do you want to invest more money?"

"I don't have money." Scarlett paused and said lightly.

As if she had heard a joke, Kailey laughed and said, "Cousin, how could you not have money? If you don't have money now, you can ask Jack to give you some. If we don't seize this opportunity and make more money now, we will definitely be looked down upon by others in the future. Besides, even if you marry a rich man, you have to have your own career at that time!"

These words were like needles stabbing into Scarlett's heart, but she still held them back. She bit her lips and said, "I don't need that. I invested in your bar. If only I could make it back."

She asked, "Didn't you say that you've made profits? Then return me some money these days."

"Well," as soon as Kailey heard that Scarlett was going to take the money out of her, she immediately stood up, scratched her hair and said, "Cousin, we all settle accounts once a month. I can't give it to you now."

"Do you have some money with you? Give me some first." Scarlett used to use credit cards before and didn't have much cash with her. Now, two credit cards had been taken back by Jack. She was almost penniless.

Kailey widened her eyes and looked at her in shock. She said in a trembling voice, "How, how can I have money? Cousin, it suddenly occurred to me that I still have something to do. I have to go now."

Although Jack had moved back, the way the two got along with each other did not change much. Under her intentional escape, the two did not have much chance to meet.

After resting at home for a day, Rachel felt much better and went back to work. Not long after she sat down, Celia pushed the office door open and poked her head in. "Rachel, are you busy now? Can I come in?"

"Come in." Rachel was a little surprised. Celia always just came in directly but this time she was so shy and polite.

Putting down the documents in her hands, Rachel saw that she was sitting on the sofa in front of her desk, with her hands on her legs, and seriously looking ahead. The doubts in Rachel's heart suddenly became even worse. "Did you take the wrong medicine today? Or you didn't take any?"

"Rachel..." Celia's voice was as low as an ant's.

Seeing her like this, Rachel was at a loss whether to cry or to laugh. She said, "Can you talk to me nicely? It's so strange! I have goose bumps."

As soon as she finished speaking, Celia sighed heavily. She leaned back, stretched out her hands and feet, and sat on the sofa in a big square. She said with a depressed face, "I just said that I was not suitable for any lad

ir phones rang at the same time.

The two walked to a quiet place respectively and answered the phone. "What's up?" asked Rachel coldly.

Jack asked in a soft voice, "Where are you now? I'll pick you up later. In the afternoon, let's go to the mall to buy the baby bed. What do you think?"

"No need, thanks." Rachel refused.

Two days ago, Rachel casually mentioned to Julie that she wanted to buy a baby bed. Now, Jack called her and asked her to see it together. He must have heard it from Julie.

Jack continued to ask, "Where are you now?"

Rachel lied. "I'm having a meeting outside."

But as soon as Jack finished his words, a smiling face suddenly appeared in front of Rachel. He smiled and asked, "So you are having a meeting here."

As soon as she saw Marcus behind him, Rachel knew what was going on. Instead, she calmed down and said calmly, "I'm going to have a meeting in about ten minutes."

"But I just called your Director to ask for leave for you." Jack shook his phone.

"You!" Rachel opened her eyes wide and said, "It's none of your business."

"I don't think so." Jack shrugged his shoulders and answered frankly. Looking at Celia and Marcus, who were walking towards them, he naturally put his hands on the waist of Rachel. He smiled and said in a voice that could only be heard by the two, "If you don't want your friends to worry about you, then you should behave well, understand?"

'Shit! He is threatening me!' But Rachel stopped struggling.

Yes, she was threatened by him, because once Celia knew it, she would definitely tell Lea, which would affect her baby. If something happened to the baby in her belly, Rachel really couldn't afford it.

Holding Marcus's arm, Celia walked over. The smile at the corners of her mouth was instantly much more confident than before. "Rachel, Marcus and I are leaving, we still have something to do."

"Okay, see you."
