It was not easy for him to find these in half an hour.
Jonathan’s face darkened slightly. “Had she been standing in front of Calvin’s mansion last night?” he thought.
“Mr. Youngblood, Ms. Leighton had been standing all night, and now she is standing again like this. I’m afraid that with her physical strength, she won’t last long,” Carlos said.
Jonathan turned around and looked down at the dark spot in front of the building through the floor-to-ceiling window again. “Go down and bring her up!”
“Understood,” Carlos hurriedly answered and walked out of the CEO’s Office.
Carlos could tell that Jonathan still cared about Rosalie.
When Carlos walked downstairs, Rosalie was on the verge of collapsing. She was just trying to hold on with her last willpower.
“Ms. Leighton, Mr. Youngblood wants to see you. Come with me.” Carlos couldn’t help sighing when he saw the disheveled woman in front of him.
In fact, with Jonathan’s heart for her, as long as she was willing to give in to him, he would naturally help her solve her current problem.
“Okay, thank you,” Rosalie answered, her voice hoarse and her lips dry.
When Rosalie followed Carlos into the building, some employees of the company were all surprised, while those who had never seen Rosalie began guessing her identity in their hearts.
After all, Rosalie had been standing outside for so long and had attracted the attention of many people.
When Carlos took Rosalie to the CEO’s Office, he gently knocked on the door and then opened it. He said to Rosalie, “Ms. Leighton, please!”
Rosalie clenched her fists as if she was cheering herself up.
She was more nervous than ever when she walked into this office.
When Rosalie walked into the office, there was a click behind her and the sound of the door closing. In front of her, there was a tall figure standing in front of the floor-to-ceiling window not far away. As soon as she looked up, she met those deep black eyes.
Rosalie looked at Jonathan nervously. Yes, she was nervous. She was afraid that Jonathan would not lend her money if she said or did something wrong.
The money was about Lillian’s life, after all.
Lillian thought, “I have to borrow this money no matter what!”
Taking a deep breath, she started, “I know it’s very presumptuous of me to ask for anything today, but I… can only ask for your help. I don’t know what else to do except borrow this money from you.”
“You’re borrowing money to treat Lillian?” Jonathan asked in a pleasant but sharp voice.
It was as if his words could cut her skin open.
“Yeah,” she replied, and was not surprised that he would find out.
“You really care about your friend. For Lillian, you stood at the gate of Calvin’s mansion all night and then came to me again and stood for so long.” His words were full of sarcasm.
Her body trembled, and her hands hung on her side clenched tighter as if she wanted to give herself more courage.
No matter how much trouble Jonathan was going to give her, she would bear it. If she couldn’t bear all this, then how could she save Lillian?
She bit her lip and said, “I know I may seem shameless to you, but… I really need this money now. If I don’t have it, Lillian may not be able to survive. As long as you’re willing to lend me the money, whatever you want me to do, I’ll do it.”
Indeed, as long as Lillian could be saved, it didn’t matter what happened to her. In her most desperate time, Lillian had given
her future and lent her a helping hand. Now she would do everything she could to save Lillian.
Jonathan chuckled and said, “What do you think I need you to do for me? Do you think I’ll say such a stupid thing about asking you to stay with me again? Or should I ask you to sleep with me in exchange for 400 thousand dollars? Rosalie, do you think I can’t get a woman? Or that I solely belong to you?”
Every word he said was like a whip hitting and hurting her.
However, she couldn’t refute it. Indeed, she was nothing in front of him and didn’t even have the right to negotiate a deal with him.
She said hoarsely, “So can you tell me what it would take for you to lend me the money?” Now she could only look on the bright side. If Jonathan really didn’t mean to lend her money, he would not have had Carlos bring her here. He would have let her fend for herself outside.
He walked toward her slowly, and every step he took seemed to be stepping on her heart.
Finally, he came to her with a coldness in his eyes. “I knelt at your feet and kissed the back of your feet. At that time, I was willing to do everything for you. Even if you really wanted my life, I would give it to you! But you…”
He snorted and continued, “You knelt in front of me for Calvin and begged me to let you go the next day! Rosalie, did you ever feel any pity for me back then?”
She bit her lower lip tightly. His coldness gave her a great sense of pressure, but she still needed to endure it.
“I-I’m willing to try my best to make up for it. I hurt you back then, so now I’ll pay it back…” She suddenly got down to her knees in front of him, and her lips were about to kiss the upper of his shoe.
His eyes flashed with disbelief. He didn’t expect that she would do this for Lillian.
Seeing that her lips were about to touch the upper of his shoe, he grabbed her arm and pulled her up. “Enough! Do you think you can write off what happened by doing this? Rosalie, I let you in just to tell you that since you said you did not regret leaving me like that, then now you have no room for regret!”
She looked at him in a daze, and her heart sank. “So… you won’t lend me 400 thousand dollars, will you?”
He suddenly let go of his hand. “Yes, I won’t! What makes you qualified to ask me to lend you 400 thousand dollars?” He then thought, “What makes you qualified to influence my mood like this and make me angry?”
Rosalie’s face was full of despair, and there was an empty look in her eyes.
