Chapter 49: You’ll Come Tomorrow
Before his legs were broken, few people dared to cross lker due to his cold and intimidating presence. After he was disabled, his temper became even more unpredictable and he would often fly into a rage over trivial matters, making it difficult for servants to attend to him.
But this woman dared to look directly into his eyes without fear. Her bright and clear eyes were as pure as a lake in autumn warm and radiant. When she smiled, her lips were more vibrant than rose petals, which left him momentarily stunned.
This woman’s smile was quite charming indeed.
“The mighty warric: who once shone brightly as a major general is nothing but someone who judges others by their appearance?” The woman’s lips parted slightly as she spoke with ease.
Her words made everyone nervous.
Iker was known for his bad temper. He even dared mock Kai directly.
If the servants made a mistake, they would be fired without given a second chance.
Those who insulted him behind his back were all punished severely by him.
No one had ever dared to say such “reckless” words in front of him before.
A hint of anger filled Iker’s deep–set eyes, and his voice was surprisingly cold, making people shiver like they were in an icy abyss. “You, say it again!”
Layne also began to worry about her granddaughter. Just as he was about to speak up, he heard Cheyenne continue.
“Isn’t that right? The reason you don’t want us treating you is because you look down on my gender and my grandfather’s attire!” “Who said only those wearing white coats and leather shoes are doctors?”
“My grandfather may not have treated anyone for over ten years but he has saved countless people with his acupuncture skills.”
“I once admired you for standing out from millions at a young age. But now it seems that you’re just a pitiful creature using anger to hide your own insecurities!”
Cheyenne spoke softly but each word resounded loudly in everyone’s ears.
The atmosphere in the hall had dropped to freezing point.
‘Miss Lawrence is so bold! Erica clenched her hands under the table as she glared at Cheyenne. ‘Who does she think she is to say that? No one knows Iker’s inner pain. How dared she say he’s a pitiful creature? He was a hero!‘
The words “pitiful creature” hit Iker hard. For three years, he had despised being pitied and sympathized with by others.
In a fit of rage, his eyes turned bloodshot as if he were about to devour someone.
“Miss Lawrence, get out of the way!” Thalia and Kai shouted in unison.
Once upon a time, an insolent servant had mocked Iker for being useless and weak, calling him a pitiful creature, but ended up with three broken ribs and internal bleeding after receiving one punch from Iker. He spent months recovering in hospital.
Whenever someone mentioned those words again, Iker would go berserk!
Countless servants were injured and dismissed because of this reason.
These words had become a taboo. Whenever he heard them, he would fall into a crazy rage and only stop when his anger was vented out. Today, no exception.
Even though a delicate and beautiful woman was standing in front of him, Iker took action.
With a clenched fist, he struck towards Cheyenne.
Layne slammed the table and stood up. He came to help cure the illness, but if his granddaughter was hurt, he would refuse to treat the patient no matter what!
Why bother about this weirdo?
As for investigating Adrian’s true intentions, there are other ways.
Cheyenne’s safety is the most important thing.
Just when everyone thought Cheyenne would be seriously injured or killed by this punch, she did something that shocked everyone.
She dodged Iker’s attack and agilely dashed behind the man.
Her fair and tender arms locked around Iker’s neck, and her small hands clamped onto his wrists. Extending a leg, she wrapped it around his waist. The red skirt tilted because of this movement, sliding over her thigh skin like water, revealing a fair and slender leg.
Not fat, not thin, perfect lines.
It is even full of sex appeal.
As the woman got closer, Iker distinctly felt her softness and sweetness, and that leg shamelessly hung around his waist.
He had lived for more than twenty years, and for the first time he had such an intimate contact with a woman, which made him blush a little. There are certainly women in the army, but in his eyes they all undergo the same training methods as men and are commanded by him.
He was a little at a loss when he encountered such a situation for the first time,
What angered him more was that he was trapped by a woman and couldn’t move!
He wanted to shake off Cheyenne on his back, but the woman clutched his throat with her hands.
The tender fingertips feel the throbbing Adam’s apple, which was boiling hot.
And her hand was just icy cold, the two completely different sensations touching each other made Iker widen his eyes.
Chapter 49: You’ll Come Tomorrow
Cheyenne actually grabbed Iker’s neck!
The other people in the lobby all looked like they had seen a ghost.
It was the first time that Kai had seen such an audacious woman, so he couldn’t help but feel some admiration.
Erica was more concerned with Cheyenne’s long leg hanging around the man’s waist, cursing her in her mind as a shameless bitch.
Then came Cheyenne’s charming and elegant laughter, tinged with a hint of smugness.
This move is called a choke hold!”
“Master Iker, you’ve never been treated like this before, have you?”
“You know, if your leg wasn’t injured, I wouldn’t even be able to get close to you.”
“If you don’t want to hear those words again, then you need to make yourself stronger. Be the old Iker again instead of using your status as young master to make them fear you!”
After finishing her words, Cheyenne withdrew her hand.
She lowered her head and straightened out her dress once more, returning back into an elegant ladylike demeanor.
But that fierce yet sexy scene from earlier had been deeply engraved in everyone’s minds.
Seeing her now as such a proper lady made them feel somewhat uncomfortable.
Cheyenne’s words were like a heavy bomb that blew open Iker’s emotional walls in an abrupt manner!
The anger on his face gradually dissipated and he became calm once more. He seemed lost deep in thought while slightly lowering his eyelids. “Be Iker, not the Todd family’s young master!”
Suddenly, a hoarse voice sounded behind Cheyenne. “You, come over tomorrow.”
