To Be Yours Again novel (Alec and Jenny) novel Chapter 12

Chapter 12 I’ll Remember You

What was Alec doing here?

Their conversation came to a screeching halt. Alec scrutinized Jenny and Stephanie with a harsh gaze, determined to find out what they were talking about. Just then, the elevator arrived, breaking the silence with its chime.

Jenny, who was rather quick-witted, hurriedly pulled Stephanie into the elevator. She wanted to escape from him, but Alec strode into the elevator after them.

“So, tell me, how has she been generous to me? What should she have asked from me?” he asked, his gaze fixed on Stephanie. Despite his light tone, his voice commanded fear.

Guilty, Stephanie gulped. However, thinking about it, she decided that she had said nothing wrong as Alec had treated Jenny wrongly in their marriage.

Just as she was about to speak, Jenny stepped forward and said, “Well, Mr. Faust, after Stephanie found out that I had performed surgery on Miss Lawrence, she felt that I should have asked you for more compensation, which is why she said what she said.”

“Are you saying I gave you too little?” he asked, turning to look at her. His voice carried a threatening tone.

“Of course, you gave me a lot.” Jenny shook her head, forced a smile, and added, “It’s my fault for not making it clear to her, which is why she doesn’t know exactly how much you gave me.”

“Is that so?” Alec stared at Stephanie, finding it hard to believe.

Stephanie caught Jenny’s signal. Although she didn’t understand what was happening, she nodded in agreement, “Yes.”

“You want to beat me up just because of that?” Alec frowned deeply.

Feeling guilty, Stephanie averted her eyes.

“She was just fooling around, so don’t take it to heart,” Jenny explained, silently cursing her bad luck for causing Alec to bump into her when they were gossiping about him.

Ignoring her, he stared at Stephanie for a long time before asking, “Are you Charles Walker’s daughter?”

Stephanie nodded, surprised that Alec recognized her.

“Very well, I’ll remember you,” he said. Right then, the elevator arrived on the first floor, and he exited the elevator.

Stephanie felt her knees turn to jelly. If Jenny hadn’t caught her in time, she might have fallen to the ground.

“I’m done for. He wouldn’t seek revenge on my dad’s company just because of this, right?”

Looking at Alec’s retreating figure, Jenny shook her head.

“I don’t think so. He isn’t that childish.”

Sharing the same thought, Stephanie regained her spirits and then asked, “What happened between the both of you? Does he not know who you are?”

During their short interaction in the elevator, Alec seemed unable to decipher what was going on from their conversation. Therefore, that was the most plausible explanation to Stephanie.

“Yeah, he doesn’t. I haven’t met him since we married, ” Jenny replied. “The day after our divorce, he came looking for me, asking me to operate on his lover. Let me tell you, I was completely dumbfounded when that happened.”

“His lover?” Stephanie was immediately invested in the story. “Tell me all the details.”

Immediately, Jenny told her everything about Faye’s operation, sighing, “I really hope I won’t meet him again.”

“I don’t think that’ll happen,” Stephanie said with a little too much glee. “Think about it. Why would he appear here of all places?”

Jenny fell silent. How did she end up in the same community, in the same apartment, and on the same floor as him? Parrington was a vast city, after all.
