However, the thought of her forgetting the wounds Magnus had inflicted on her and accepting that heartless man again was absolutely out of the question, so Natalia decided to push herself, forcing herself to accept Callum.
Perhaps, once she took that step, she would no longer agonize over Magnus.
The fact that Natalia had so readily agreed to an early engagement had Callum over the moon. “Great, I’ll start making arrangements tomorrow. I promise you a grand
Once the engagement ceremony was held, he would be Natalia’s rightful fiancé. No matter what tricks Magnus, that bastard, tried to pull, Callum would stand by the side of his beloved, protecting her. No one would be able to take her away!
Callum was ecstatic when his suggestion to move their engagement date forward was accepted.
Natalia, in a whirlwind of emotions, was unsure how to respond, and simply nodded and continued to eat. She remained silent, focusing on her food.
Her mind was back at the airport, replaying the scene where Magnus had fought fiercely
After all these years, Magnus still refused to let her go. Regardless, there was no way they could be together again.
News of Callum and Natalia’s early engagement soon spread throughout the city. Magnus, having received the news first, was on the verge of madness. Ignoring the advice of his friends, he jumped in his car and headed straight for Callum’s residence.
No matter what, he would not hand over his woman to Callum. He had to take Natalia
When Magnus‘ car pulled up outside of Callum’s mansion, he didn’t bother with the gate but drove straight in.
Magnus realized that even if he had knocked politely, Callum, that bastard, would never let him see Natalia. So he had to resort to this method to force Natalia out!
When Magnus‘ car pulled up in front of the main building of the mansion, he looked almost insane, stepped out of the car, and shouted at the mansion, “Darling, you can’t marry someone else. You’re my wife!”

Unexpectedly, there was a ruckus outside his mansion.
Hearing Callum’s question, a servant came over nervously and replied respectfully, “Sir, a man suddenly rushed in and started shouting. He’s too crazy. None of us can handle him!” Natalia’s face turned pale instantly. She turned towards the door. Could it be Magnus? Could he have come to Britain?
As if to confirm her fear, Natalia made her way to the door and gazed out of the living room window to see Magnus‘ eyes filled with anguish.
Her heart ached!
Magnus stood in the courtyard of the mansion. Callum’s bodyguards surrounded him, preventing him from moving further, but they couldn’t stop his shouting.
“Darling, I’m here for you! I’m here to take you home! You can’t get engaged to someone else!”
He would never allow her to get engaged to Callum. She was his wife. The mother of his
Magnus‘ shouts were so loud that Natalia and Callum could hear him clearly from inside the mansion. Callum stood up abruptly. “This is ridiculous. How did he just barge in here? What’s the point of having you guys around?”
The butler, who was being scolded by Callum, lowered his head, and defended himself, “Sir, we’ve done our best to stop him, but that man is just rushing in like a mad man.”
“Hmph, if he was here to kill me, you wouldn’t be able to stop him either! Worthless!” Callum left this harsh remark and strode towards the door. He was eager to see what Magnus could possibly do on his turf!
“Callum, you vile man, give me back my wife!” Outside, Magnus‘ voice grew louder. He didn’t care about the bodyguards surrounding him.
Callum walked over, rebuking him, “Magnus, what do you want? This is my mansion. I won’t tolerate your yelling here!”
Magnus glanced at Callum, radiating hostility. “Callum, you deceived another’s wife. You’re not fit to be a duke!”
“Shut up!” Callum glared at Magnus. “Your wife died five years ago because of you! Natalia is my fiancée, my soon–to–be–wife. Who do you think you are? Get out of my
five years ago, heh…
But Magnus wouldn’t give up. “Callum, don’t deceive yourself. Let Natalia come out, and I will take her away. I will repay you for all your help, but I won’t let your plan succeed!”
His eyes were filled with boundless pain. “Darling, I won’t let you go.”
Callum was infuriated by Magnus‘ actions. This was his territory, and that bastard, Magnus, had the audacity to challenge him and try to take away Natalia.
It seemed as if without teaching this bastard a lesson, Magnus wouldn’t understand the rule of respecting the master’s orders!
With that thought, Callum signaled his bodyguards. “Throw him out!”
The bodyguards had long grown tired of Magnus‘ incessant ranting and raving. With the Duke’s order, they didn’t hesitate to throw punches Magnus‘ way.
But Magnus wasn’t one to be easily taken down. He raised his fists and exchanged a few blows with them. The Duke’s bodyguards were the cream of the crop, each one a tough cookie. And Magnus? He was a wolf provoked!
But even so, he was outnumbered. Soon, Magnus, isolated and outmuscled, couldn’t keep up with the burly men. He found himself at a disadvantage.
It wasn’t enough for the bodyguards to just knock Magnus to the ground. They kicked him a few more times, leaving Magnus with a bloodied nose and mouth.
