My one in a million wife [Ashlyn and Lucas] chapter 1
Night fell. The sky was dark, spangled with stars.
“Honey, I’ll move out tomorrow. How’s that?” Ashlyn hugged the man from behind, resting her gorgeous face on his broad back.
“It’s okay. I’m planning to give Whitland Villa to you.” Lucas’ voice was cold and placid.
Ashlyn’s lips quirked up. In a well-behaved and obedient manner, she said, “Honey, it was agreed that I would leave this marriage of four years with nothing. Isn’t it great that we can stay out of each other’s lives now?”
Lucas couldn’t see her expression at this moment, but he could tell that the woman wasn’t sad at all.
Is she that desperate to get a divorce?
For some reason, he felt inexplicably uncomfortable.
“Don’t you love money?”
“Desired wealth must be acquired uprightly. Besides, it’s not a good thing to receive an alimony.” Ashlyn let go of her hands that were embracing the man’s waist. “I’m gonna go take a shower.”
The woman had just turned around when she was abruptly tugged by the arm. The man’s thin lips inched closer. She smiled delicately and covered her mouth, gazing at him with her pair of bright eyes. “We’re gonna divorce soon.”
“So long as we haven’t made it official, you’re still my wife,” Lucas said with a slight frown.
Lucas had always liked her obedience and gentleness.
“Honey, I just wanna take a bath and sleep now…” Ashlyn said coquettishly, her eyes seductive and soft as she caressed the man’s chest. “Pretty please?”
The night was like a dream.
After four years of marriage, Lucas couldn’t bear to part with Ashlyn.
Ashlyn lifted her head to look at the man before her eyes.
Lucas Nolan was the prized prince of Nolan Group and the first captain of South Star Airlines. Women and daughters of wealthy families swooned over him and stewardesses and ground staff were crazy about him. He was known as the walking ten thousand fans generator.
Of course, she was excluded from these people.
She had known her role all long in this marriage.
And now, this four-year marriage was finally coming to an end.
The next morning, Lucas was already up when Ashlyn awoke and was washing up in the bathroom.
“Morning.” Ashlyn slowly sat up. The man was so aggressive last night that her body felt sore.
Lucas had put on a black shirt with a pair of black pants underneath.
Ashlyn got out of bed and found a black dress to put on.
It was Charles’ funeral today.
Naturally, she had to attend as his nominal granddaughter-in-law.
Lucas glanced at her and said, “You don’t have to go if you don’t want to. We can drop the act now since we’re getting a divorce.”
Ashlyn’s hands, which were just about to put her clothes on, froze. “Grandpa was nice to me. I want to see him one last time and send him off.”
“All right then, I’ll get Spencer to send you there,” Lucas said flatly.
“Great!” Ashlyn smiled.
Does that mean he doesn’t want to expose me? During the four years of marriage, the public had only known that the president of Nolan Group, Lucas Nolan, had a young wife in a secret marriage, but no one had ever actually seen her face.
