To Be Yours Again novel (Alec and Jenny) novel Chapter 31

Chapter 31 Control Yourself, Mr. Faust

Jenny knew that Alec was talking to her, but how dare he use that tone and those interrogative words.

“So you can be with any man out there except for me? Answer me,” he demanded, his voice cold, bearing a trace of fury.

Jenny burst into laughter. She looked at Alec with interest. “Are you questioning me? Who are you to do that, exactly?”

Alec was silent.

“Is it because you’re so used to being the one in power? Is that why you’re so authoritative with everyone? What a pity. I’m not your underling; I don’t have to answer you.”

As she finished speaking, the elevator arrived. Jenny walked right in, not wishing to linger around Alec. However, he refused to let it go and went in after her.

Jenny kept a distance between herself and Alec. Neither of them spoke. The air around them was stifling.

Just when she thought the silence would accompany them home, Alec spoke. “I’m sorry. I sounded harsh, but I was only worried about you. Pearson is not all he seems. He has reasons for being so close to you. I just don’t want you to be too friendly around him.”

Jenny shot him a look and retracted her gaze. “I don’t care if he’s not what he seems. I don’t care about why he wants to get close to me. We’re basically strangers.” Before Alec could respond, she added,” Besides, the people I talk to are my business. You have nothing to do with it.”

Her words angered Alec. “I am not joking around.” He was serious. His expression was extraordinarily solemn. Jenny, however, looked nonchalant.

“Mind your own business, Mr. Faust,” she said, smirking.

“Dr. Walter! I…”

With a click, the lights turned off. The elevator plunged into darkness and proceeded to grind to a halt.
