I Married a Beautiful Boss After the Breakup

Elly left the hospital early today.
When Mr. Johnson was awake, Eric told him about the land requisition. He was unable to speak because of his injuries, and tears kept rolling down his cheeks.
Eric knew his father was blaming himself for bringing further hardship to their family, which was already struggling financially. After Mr. Johnson fell asleep, Eric left after he had reminded his mother to take her medication on time. The private ward even prepared meals for the patient’s family members, so Eric knew his mother was not going to end up hungry.
Eric returned to the Rosewood Estate after getting some ingredients for dinner. Sylvia was sitting on the sofa when Eric entered the house.
“What do you feel like eating for dinner?” asked Eric.
“Before I answer your question, I heard that you’re still involved with that woman,” Sylvia said, her eyes filled with icy coldness. She felt displeased upon discovering that Brook had been following Eric, and it only worsened when he witnessed Eric with Jasmine. Sylvia anticipated that her words would catch Eric off guard.
After putting the ingredients in the kitchen, Eric sat next to Sylvia and asked, “Who told you so?”
Sylvia refused to answer Eric’s question. It would not be appropriate for her to reveal to Eric that Brook was tracking him after all.
Eric smiled and said, “On the day we went to the town hall to obtain our marriage certificate, it crossed my mind that I’d be hiding the truth from you if I had not broken up with Jasmine. I was determined to break up with her because she was cheating on me with my boss, David. I just quit David’s company today. I didn’t even want to see Jasmine, but she was so persistent in finding me. What am I supposed to do? Get a restraining order on her?”
“I don’t care what’s going on between you and her. But according to our marriage agreement, nothing should happen for the next three years,” muttered Sylvia.
Eric shrugged and said, “What could happen? We didn’t even kiss before.”
Sylvia’s expression darkened, so Eric quickly sprung to his feet and said, “I’ve bought seafood for dinner tonight.”
The next day, Eric made breakfast and left it on the dining table before leaving the house. He went to the hospital so his mother could take a break.
When Eric left the house, Brook quickly followed him. Meanwhile, Sylvia’s chauffeur, who was also trying to follow Eric, backed out when he saw Brook. After Brook left, another car began to follow him.
Eric headed straight to the private ward after arriving at the hospital. Just as the men in the car were about to get out, Brook looked into the car that had been following him, smiled at them, and asked, “I realized you guys were following me from the Rosewood Estate to the hospital. Who sent you here?”
The driver smiled awkwardly and handed Brook a cigarette. “There must be a misunderstanding, pal. We are here to visit our friend!”
The corner of Brook’s mouth curled into a sneer. “Do I look like a fool to you? Spill the beans or suffer the consequences for lying to the awesome Master Brook.”
The driver’s expression changed dramatically, and he said hastily, “Mr. Brook Williams!? This is really a misunderstanding! I was following the man who just entered the hospital, not you!”
“Eric?” Brook furrowed his brow.
“Yes, that’s him! David Westman sent me to investigate whether someone with a powerful background supports Eric! It seems like that guy Eric gave him a hard time.”
Brook smiled upon hearing David’s name. He patted the man on the shoulder and said, “He’s nothing but an ordinary man. Tell David that Eric is only an ordinary citizen with no background.”
“Yes, sir!” The man nodded hastily.
Meanwhile, an ambulance would have nearly run over an old man if Eric had not pulled him away at the last moment. Eric headed to the private ward after ensuring the old man’s safety. As he left, a middle-aged man showed up anxiously.
“Dad! Why are you here? You shouldn’t be walking out on your own!” he asked.
One of the passersby said, “Hey, keep an eye on your father. An ambulance would have run him over if that young man hadn’t saved him in time!”
The middle-aged man was shocked, and his expression darkened as he made a call.
“Dr. Gray! I demand an explanation! My father almost got killed in your hospital!”
The hospital was thrown into a commotion.
Eric was filled with confusion as he gazed at his hands. He couldn’t comprehend how his speed and agility had suddenly improved to such an extent. The sight of the old man nearly being run over by the ambulance filled him with a surge of adrenaline.
Eric snapped back to his senses.
It was Jasmine again. She quickly stopped Eric from turning away as she pleaded, “Eric, listen to me, please!”
“Alright, say what you need to say, and then scram!” Eric was desperate to get her out of his sight.
“I got together with David for your own good!” Tears began to well up in Jasmine’s eyes.
Eric was momentarily stunned before bursting into a fit of laughter.
“I only wanted to help you with your career. Do you really think I want to be with a sc*mbag like David?! You have no idea how much I sacrificed for you! Why can’t you just give me a chance!?” she said.
“Jasmine, enough is enough!” Eric blurted angrily. “I wasn’t born yesterday. It’s over now, so beat it!”
Jasmine darted toward Eric and said, “Eric, you said you’re married. That’s not true, right? Let’s get married right now! I don’t need a car or a house to marry you!”
“Get lost! I don’t want to see you ever again. You disgust me!” Eric pushed Jasmine away and strode away.
Jasmine’s presence had just ruined his day.
Jasmine’s expression turned unsightly. She had lowered herself in front of Eric, only for him to insult her.
Sylvia’s chauffeur, who had witnessed the encounter between Eric and Jasmine, immediately sent a message to Sylvia. In the message, he clarified that Jasmine desperately sought reconciliation with Eric, contradicting the story Sylvia had heard from Brook.
Sylvia was visibly angry upon receiving the message.
Sylvia: [Come back and fetch me!]
