The Three Little Guardian Angels Chapter 1256

chapter 1256

Francisco trembled, and he hugged her even tighter. It looked like he was using all his strength, but a sense of powerlessness rose from the depths of his heart. A surge of emotion raged in his eyes as he said, “Naomi. I don’t know how to express my feelings.

You’re different from those women I wooed before, so I can’t treat you like I treated them.”

He tightened his grip on her shoulders. “If I had known this day would come, I would have stayed away from you in the first place.”

Naomi’s eyelashes trembled, she stayed in his arms and did not say anything.

Francisco stroked her cheek with his hand and wiped the tears off her face. “I don’t deserve a good woman like you.”

He slowly pulled away from Naomi after he finished speaking. Just when he turned around, Naomi hugged him from behind.

He was stunned, and his chest rose up and down heavily. “Naomi…”

“Just let me hug you for a while.” Naomi closed her eyes, she pressed her cheek against his back, feeling the warmth of his body seeping into her for the last time.

After a long while, she withdrew her arms and said, “I’m satisfied that I know you like me too.”

His chest heaved up and down heavily. He pulled the door open and went away without turning his head. He dared not to turn his head around, for he did not want her to see the redness beneath his eyes.

Several days later…

“Engagement?”

Naomi was stunned. She looked at Jackie sitting in front of her in surprise and asked, “ Are… Are you serious, Mr. Clifford?”

‘I thought we’re just pretending to be a couple? Why does he want to get engaged?’

Jackie picked up his coffee cup and took a sip. “ It’s just a fake engagement.”

He then put the cup on the table and straightened his back. “We’re just going to go through some formalities. Besides, we can cancel the engagement at any time.”

“Mr. Clifford, are you doing this just to lie to your grandfather?” Naomi asked.

“You can put it that way,” Jackie replied with a smile. “Don’t you want to know what Francisco will do after learning of your engagement?”

Naomi was stunned.

Indeed, Naomi was curious about what Francisco would do when he learned of the engagement between her and Jackie. Would he give them his blessing, or…

“Do you want to bet?”

“Bet on what?” Naomi asked hesitantly.

The smile on Jackie’s face deepened as he said, “Let’s bet on whether or not he’ll stop US from getting engaged.”

She lowered her head and clenched her hands tightly.

‘What if he chooses to give US a blessing?’

Jackie placed his hand on his forehead and pressed on. “What do you think? Do you want to bet or what?”

“What about you, Mr. Clifford?” Naomi lifted her head to look at him. “If he appears, won’t you be the one to be abandoned? It doesn’t seem fair to you, does it?”

Jackie was stunned for a moment before letting out a laugh. “Well, this is a surprise. I didn’t know you would worry about me, Ms. Topaz.”

He leaned against the back of the chair and continued. “You don’t have to worry about that at all, Ms. Topaz. After all, it’s me who approached you to put up a show in the first place. This charade isn’t real; sooner or later, people will find out.”

Naomi pressed her lips thin, “when are we going to do it?”

He rested his chin on his hand and suggested, “How about the end of this month?”

#Naomi Topaz of the Eastwood Enterprise is engaged#

Everyone was stunned when the news came out. After all, she and Jackie had only been in a relationship not more than a month, and they did not expect them to get engaged so soon.

Barbara went straight to Soul Jewelry when she saw the news, she pushed the door to the office open and said, “Maisie, Naomi is engaged!”

Maisie lifted her head and replied, “Yeah. I know about that.”

“Then why aren’t you surprised?” Barbara walked up to the desk and put her hands on it. “Does this not mean that our effort to match them up has gone to waste?”

“Well, there’s nothing we can do about it,” Maisie said as she played with the pen around her fingers. “The problem is with Francisco. Maybe you’re right. He should just be single.”

Barbara crossed her arms in front of her chest. “What’s wrong with him? I thought he was very experienced with women? Didn’t he have a lot of girlfriends in the past?”
