Read The Divorced Billionaire Heiress Chapter 757 – Nicole was really just worried.
It was an honest concern for Clayton.
This accident made Nicole feel that she seemed to carry some prejudice against him before this.
Nicole treated all suitors with an attitude of indifference.
That was because of the inherent defensiveness from the unknown.
However, this seemed futile on Clayton.
Due to this car accident, the relationship between them changed discreetly.
However, she could not pinpoint exactly what was different about it.
Clayton tried hard to break the unfamiliarity between them. It was a struggle, but he was also clear that he could not let up.
He wanted to take things further with her, and he wanted to take the initiative.
Thus, Clayton was clear about every bit of change in Nicole’s attitude toward him.
Hearing Nicole’s concern, Clayton felt a little lost, but he still pulled out a smile.
“Then it’s worth it for me to get hurt.”
Nicole’s smile stiffened slightly. Clayton once again spoke, “Did Mr. Ferguson tell you why he punched me?”
Clayton was curious what Eric would say to Nicole.
Nicole shook her head. “No.”
‘Who knows?’ Nicole could not tell Clayton that Eric said “he deserved it”, so she might as well keep quiet.
Clayton smirked a little smugly.
“Because he’s jealous of me!”
For the first time, Clayton was so glad to get punched.
Eric’s annoyance made Clayton feel that he had hope.
Nicole froze as Clayton’s smile deepened. His gaze was deep as he looked at her.
“For the first time, I feel that I’m still useful to you, and this time, I’m closer to you than Mr. Ferguson.”
Nicole looked up and instantly got s****d into Clayton’s deep, dark eyes, which were boundless like the universe.
Clayton’s tone was warm. He unconsciously wanted to share more of himself with her.
“Since I was young, I didn’t dare to get into the slightest accident because of this blood type. I learned to be selfish and indifferent because once something happens, there’s a possibility that I won’t survive. This time, I’m incredibly glad that I have this blood type. Nicole, don’t rush to be grateful to me. I won’t be so despicable as to blackmail you into dedicating yourself to me. I just want you to be fair and not turn me away with a word of thanks.”
For a moment, Nicole’s heart trembled slightly. A part of her heart gradually started to collapse.
The high wall of indifference that she had built had been hurting Clayton.
She thanked him countless times and did not want him to kidnap her with his feelings, but now, he bluntly said that he would not do that.
Nicole did not feel relieved by this. Instead, she felt doubly heavy.
“Mr. Sloan, I’m sure that you’re aware of what happened between me and Mr. Ferguson since it’s caused such a frenzy online. I used up all my strength to fall in love with him, so I’m exhausted. Even if I like someone in the future, I won’t put so much effort into this liking, so it won’t be fair to others.”
What she said was also very direct.
Nicole would not be a moth to a flame again.
She believed in the beauty of love, but she would no longer give up her life to experience this beauty again. This cruel sublimation would only consume her life.
Clayton was different. He raised a child that was not biologically his. On the surface, he seemed utilitarian, but in fact, he was kind and generous at heart.
Nicole really could not bear to hurt him.
Clayton looked at the faint smile on Nicole’s face and lowered his eyes slightly. He then smiled.
“Don’t come to such conclusions so soon. How would you know if you don’t try?”
Nicole wrinkled her eyebrows. Clayton continued, “Moreover, how do you know if others won’t accept this imbalance? What if he’s willing to accept it?”
