The Three Little Guardian Angels Chapter 1223

chapter 1223

Pearl rolled over and opened her eyes when her back was facing him, her lips pressing into a fine line.

Tanner hugged her from the back, and when he noticed that she was trembling, he turned her around. Her eyes were tightly shut, but a drop of tear flowed down from the corner of her eyes. He wiped it off with his finger and said, “I’m sorry. Let’s take a step back each, shall we?”

She opened her eyes and said in a hoarse voice, “It wasn’t me.”

Tanner looked at her. Honestly, he did not suspect Pearl at all. He was just taking advantage of that to give himself a reason not to let her go. “No matter if it’s you or not, I’m not letting you leave my side.”

He released her and rose up to get himself changed. It was only when he left the room and closed the door with a slam that Pearl closed her eyes.

When Tanner exited the hotel, he received a call from his bodyguard. “Mr. Hannigan, we’ve found the identities of those people.

They’re loan sharks.”

He stood beside his car. “Loan sharks?”

“Yes,” the bodyguard replied.

Tanner frowned. He hung up the call and fell into deep thought.

‘Loan sharks, huh?’

It seemed to him that he needed to look into what had happened during the years Sandy left him. • • •

Tanner came to the hospital in the afternoon. Sandy had been waiting for him. When he appeared, a smile broke across her pale face. “ Tan, you’re here.”

Tanner pulled the seat and sat beside the bed. He asked, “How do you feel today?”

She lowered her head and replied, “The nurse said I can be discharged from the hospital in another few days.”

She darted a few glances at him carefully and pressed her lips. “Tan, are you still mad at me?”

“Why should I be mad at you?”

“Because I didn’t tell you the truth.” Sandy lowered her head. “I was just worried about what you would think of me. I was afraid you would abandon me.”

Tanner took a deep breath and looked outside at the sky through the window. “Sandy, tell me honestly. Is this the only thing you didn’t tell me the truth about? Are you sure you didn’t tell me any more lies?”

Sandy grabbed the cup tighter, and her expression changed, “what do you mean?”

He looked at her silently.

Sandy had a bad feeling about it, and she said, “Tan, do you still suspect me?”

Something crossed her head, and she continued. “Is it because I told you those people were sent by Ms. Santiago, so you — ”

“Sandy!” Tanner shouted, cutting her off. He had never talked to her in such a serious tone before. “If it were Pearl who did it, why would she look for loan sharks? To get money from you? Do you think she would do that for money?”

Sandy’s face turned pale. “Tan…”

He placed his hand on his forehead and said, “ This is all my fault. You were so perfect in my memory, and I kept thinking that it was my fault when you left me for a few years. I had been thinking about you in those few years until you returned. Do you know how happy I was when you said you couldn’t get over me either?”

Tanner laughed at himself. “It’s only now that I realize what I can’t let go of is the good memory we once had.”

“Tan, I… I didn’t mean it…”

“You didn’t mean to lie to me, but if I didn’t ask or look into it, you would still not tell me the truth!” Tanner shouted to interrupt her, his eyes turning bloodshot.

“Since when did you become like this, Sandy?”

Sandy did not expect that Tanner would go to look into it, and she became nervous, she threw herself at him and hugged him tightly. “ Tan, those loan sharks came to look for me, but I don’t owe them money. It was that man. He used my identity and—”

Before she could finish her sentence, Tanner pushed her away. She fell to the bed and was stunned.

“I gave you a chance, and I believed you when you said that man cheated you until I went to check it out.” Tanner looked at her coldly.

Sandy shuddered and cried, “Tan, I’m sorry. I really didn’t mean it…”
