Ex husband's Plea for Forgiveness novel Chapter 33

"I want mango flavor."

Melinda called, grinning happily. A smile tugged at the corners of Jonas's lips as he was waiting in line to get an ice cream cone for her.

Holley strutted towards Jonas and interlinked her arms with his. But he wriggled away from her hold.

"Jonas, don't you see that she's doing it intentionally?"

Holley said anxiously. If someone had told Holley that Jonas would wait in a long queue one day to get an ice cream cone for Melinda, she would have laughed.

She didn't expect that things would change in Melinda's favor soon. Holley felt as if her entire world had fallen apart.

"Mellie likes it,"

Jonas said, shrugging casually. Melinda's skin broke into goose bumps when she heard Jonas's words. Her heart started to beat frantically. Holley's eyes widened with shock. She stomped her foot angrily. "Have you fallen in love with that bitch?"

Holley felt that Jonas wouldn't fall in love with a woman like Melinda. She pacified her wounded heart by telling herself that Nelson must have forced Jonas to get along with Melinda. She couldn't help but feel sorry for him.

"She is Mrs. Gu,"

Jonas grunted as his body stiffened. Holley opened her mouth to say something but decided against it. She didn't want to annoy Jonas.

Jonas smiled at Melinda who was relishing her ice cream cone. "You should have given me a bite," Jonas said, arching an eyebrow.

"Mr. Gu, eating ice cream isn't good for you. You need to start taking your medicines."

Melinda tried hard to suppress her laughter. She loved teasing Jonas. Her eyebrows furrowed when she saw Holley standing behind him.

"We are on a date and you've brought your ex-girlfriend with you. You're impossible, Mr. Gu."

Jonas didn't know why Melinda called him Mr. Gu. He wondered if she was making fun of him or preferred calling him that. Whatever the reason was, Jonas loved it when she called him Mr. Gu.

"Melinda, stop acting too smart, you..." Holley lost her cool and was seething with rage. Jonas called his bodyguards and instructed them to take Holley away. He didn't want her disturbing their date.

The entire day had passed in the blink of an eye. They had shopped a lot of things and Melinda was happy about making Holley jealous. Unfortunately, she had to face some repercussions too. The cool drinks and ice creams were ravaging her stomach.

Several days later, they finally decided to put an end to their act. Jonas headed to work and Melinda stayed home to write.

When Jonas went to his office, Holley was already waiting for him. She had tried hard breaking his relationship with Melinda but all her plans had failed. Even the web series didn't go smoothly and Holley was in a mess.

Holley had come to borrow money from Jonas. The allocated budget was not enough.

"Holley, do you think that I'm running a charity? I don't mind lending money but you should at least pay the interest on time,"

Jonas said, twirling the pen with his fingers. Holley had been busy planning to destroy Melinda and didn't pay enough attention to work. The web series would have been a huge hit if she had meticulously planned and executed her ideas.

"I've learned from my mistakes and I know how to make this right. Moreover, web series are profitable."

Web series usually employed fresh faces. Since the actors were new to the business, their remunerations were usually low. Moreover, the sets and properties were economical. They could invest a small amount and gain huge profits.

"I'm sorry, I'm not ready to give money anymore. I expect you to pay my money back with interest,"

Jonas said coldly. Holley finally realized that Jonas had been using her all this time.

He had been pretending to be close with her only to humiliate Melinda. Holley was of no use to him now and he had thrown her away like a pile of trash.

Holley stepped forward and held his hand. "Jonas, trust me. It won't go wrong this time. Please lend money for one last time and I'll make sure you see profits that are double your investment. I promise."

Jonas glared at Holley and bellowed his orders, "William, send Miss Huang out."

William walked in and held Holley's arms to escort her out of the office. Holley understood that Jonas was firm with his decision and she could do nothing to change his mind. She was desperate to play the main lead. Her dreams would shatter if Jonas didn't invest in the play.

"Jonas, you are being cruel,"

Holley cried angrily.

William managed to send Holley away and walked into the CEO office. Jonas was waiting for him.

"Find out what Holley has done with the money. Inform the casting director about it and he'll know what to do."

"Mr. Gu, do you want me to send someone to monitor the progress of the play?"

William asked. Initially, William was apprehensive about contacting Holley and supervising the web series. But he had a clear idea of what Jonas wanted.
