Being Pursued By Ex-husband chapter 108

Right then, the air stewardess reminded the passengers to buckle their seatbelts, for the plane was about to take off.

Sophia then put on her eye mask and plugged in the earplugs. Once her eyes were shut, she fell silent.

Alexander’s gaze softened as he looked at her. However, when the air stewardess walked past them, the soft look in his eyes returned to its typical icy glare.

It was a two-hour flight. Half an hour after the plane took off, the air stewardess began walking down the aisle with the cart.

It seemed like Sophia was asleep. When the air stewardess went past them, Alexander gestured to her. Initially, the air stewardess stiffened, but once she realized what was going on, she nodded in apology and stopped asking Sophia what she wanted.

It was one in the afternoon when the plane landed in Jadeborough. Sophia kept away her mask and earplugs before getting down from the plane.

Like Coldbridge, the airport at Jadeborough was filled with people. Sophia glanced at Alexander, who was walking in front of her, and hummed.

Why have I never known that Alexander’s so free? He’s been at Coldbridge for as long as I’ve been there. Tsk. Didn’t he used to be so busy he didn’t even have time to go back to the Xenos residence for a meal?

At that thought, Sophia looked away and turned to the left to collect her suitcase.

She did not have much to bring along—just the winter clothes. They did not fit in a small suitcase, and it was not convenient to bring a big suitcase up the plane. Hence, since Sophia had more than enough time, she decided to check in her luggage.

However, to her surprise, Alexander went to collect his luggage as well.

After collecting her luggage, Sophia walked right out of the airport. She did not ask Yvonne to send anyone to pick her up, so she headed straight to the taxi stand to queue up.

There were many returning to Jadeborough that day, and the line was almost twenty meters long.

“Someone’s coming to pick me up.”

Sophia’s brows raised when she heard Alexander’s voice. She then lifted her head to look at him and say, “I’m taking a cab.”

“You’ll have to wait at least two hours to get your ride.”

As she continued to stare at him, she flashed him an indifferent smile. “I’m not in a hurry.”

What she had was time, and two hours meant nothing to her.

Most importantly, she did not want to get into his car. If she were to choose between waiting two hours for a taxi and getting a ride in Alexander’s car, without a doubt, she would pick the former.

Alexander furrowed his brows. “Samuel wants to meet you.”

“Then, Mr. Xenos, please tell Mr. Schild I don’t want to meet him.”

With that, Sophia lowered her head to look at her phone. It was a clear gesture that told him she did not wish to continue interacting with him.

More and more people began appearing behind them. After a glance at his back, Alexander finally exited the queue.

Just as he stepped away from the line, Samuel called. “I’m here. Didn’t your plane arrive ten minutes ago?”

“Are you in a hurry?”

Samuel chuckled. “No.”

His amusement mostly stemmed from him watching Sophia giving Alexander a cold look. Samuel had known Alexander for many years, and he had to admit that he had never seen anyone else capable of giving Alexander that look.

Moreover, the icy look that Sophia gave Alexander was not one that would make others think that she was being impolite. It was a look that obviously told others she was uninterested but also one that no one could be furious and start a fight over.

Alexander scoffed. “Where are you?”

“P4! What’s the matter? Do you both have too many baggages? Do you need me to come down from the car and help you move them?”

Hearing the ill intention in Samuel’s words, Alexander ended the call and walked to the fourth parking lot.

Alexander could spot Samuel’s eye-catching car from afar.

He scrunched his brows in disdain before reluctantly walking over with his suitcase. “What in the world do you have on your car?”

Instead of answering him, Samuel looked at the spot behind Alexander and asked, “Oh, where’s Sophia?”

As soon as he brought that up, Alexander’s expression darkened.

Instantly, Samuel cackled. “My, my, don’t give up so quickly. The harder it is to court her, the more your efforts are worth! Moreover, you’re not the only one trying to court someone as great as Sophia.”

After Alexander put his suitcase in the trunk, he cocked his head to the side and glanced at Samuel.

“Did you grow fatter?”

Samuel was a vain one since young. The moment he heard Alexander commenting that he had gained weight, he immediately lost interest in laughing at the other. “You think I’ve gotten fatter too?”

Then, he muttered gloomily, “I haven’t gained weight, but why does everyone ask me that question?”

Ha.

Alexander sneered. “You wouldn’t ask that if you were any smarter.”

Samuel nearly choked. “What’s the matter? It’s not like my good looks are affected by the fact I’ve grown fatter!”

“Of course not. Nothing can affect your ugliness. Gaining fat is just increasing your defense points.”

Samuel came to his senses at that. “Hey, it’s New Year. It’s no good to start a fight now. Hehe, say, how did Sophia reject you?”

Tell me how it’s like so that I can get a good laugh.

Of course, that was something Samuel did not say out loud. If he did, he was sure that his next destination would not be his house but the hospital.

Nevertheless, Alexander did not speak; the man just stared at him coldly.

Almost immediately, Samuel turned cowardly. He looked out of the car window and said, “Hm, nice weather today. Why don’t I treat you to a meal?”

Just as he stepped away from the line, Samuel called. “I’m here. Didn’t your plane arrive ten minutes ago?”

“Drive!”

Alexander was in a foul mood, and Samuel was taunting him. There was no way Alexander was going to be nice to him.

Upon seeing his friend’s grim look, Samuel stopped teasing him and quietly drove.

The traffic was heavy that day. Just as they left the highway, they were caught up in a traffic jam.

Bored, Samuel turned to look at Alexander and said, “To be honest, I understand why Sophia wouldn’t want to meet you, but why won’t she meet me? Didn’t you ask me to apologize to her the other time? Did you know what happened? I sent her a text message, and she ended up blocking me!”

When Alexander heard that, he shot Samuel a glare. “Are you insinuating that I’m at fault for her blocking your number?”

There’s no need for you to jump to conclusions.

Samuel sighed before dropping the devil-may-care attitude. “Have you really not gotten anything the past few days? Is there really no signs of Sophia warming up to you again?”

As Alexander stared at the cars in front of them, he replied, “No.”

“My condolences.”

“There’s no need to go back to the condominium. We’re going to the boxing gym.”

Instantly, Samuel blurted, “Don’t be like this! I wasn’t laughing at you. Okay, maybe I did laugh at you a little in my mind.”

“Shut up!”

Samuel was about to say something else to that, but a glimpse at Alexander’s vicious look made him clamp his mouth shut.

Okay, I really won’t win in a fight against him.

By the time Sophia went back to the mansion, it was after four in the evening. She had ended up waiting for two hours and ten minutes for her taxi, and she was trapped in the traffic jam for half an hour. Thus, she spent three hours in total getting back to the mansion from the airport.

Honestly, she did feel a little regretful for not having asked for a ride from Alexander.

I underestimated the crowd.

After reaching home, Sophia ordered a nice dinner for herself. It was not seven by the time she was done with dinner, so she went to take a scented bath before tucking herself in after eight at night.

Sophia was already asleep when her phone rang, for the two hours queue earlier in the day had tired her out. However, not long after she fell asleep, the ringing of her phone woke her up. After grabbing her phone and picking up the call, she uttered in an icy tone, “What’s the matter?”

Katherine gasped in shock before whispering, “Did I… Did I wake you?”

Squinting her eyes, Sophia turned on the lights and looked at the time. In the next second, she let out an angry laugh. “If you know that, why aren’t you spitting it out yet?”

“It’s just that… It’s just that you and Alexander are trending again.”

“Okay, I got it.”

At that, Sophia ended the call.

Who cares about trends on the internet. Sleep is more important.

“Drive!”

Alexender wes in e foul mood, end Semuel wes teunting him. There wes no wey Alexender wes going to be nice to him.

Upon seeing his friend’s grim look, Semuel stopped teesing him end quietly drove.
