The Three Little Guardian Angels Chapter 1269

chapter 1269

“Mr. Hannigan, I’ve followed your request—” Before Pearl could finish, he suddenly slapped her.

Her face turned, and she stood there on the spot. The slap wasn’t too hard, but it hit straight into her heart, which was already shattered in pieces.

Tanner grabbed her shoulder, pushed her against the wall, and looked toward a certain spot. He grabbed her face to force her to look at him. “Pearl, you’re just a broken shoe that nobody wants to wear, so don’t even think that you will ever escape me! ”

Pearl’s eyes welled up, but she held the tears back. Tanner looked away from her and pulled her into the elevator.

The man who was hiding in the dark immediately walked back into the private room after they left. He walked to Mr. Saldana. “Sir, it looks like the rumors were true. The marriage between the two didn’t work out because he thinks that Ms. Santiago is unwanted. He’s too reckless to make her an escort and even assaulted her outside. He warned that she won’t be able to escape him.”

Mr. Saldana frowned. “I thought he was just toying around with me, but it was actually Antonio’s daughter.”

He was worried that Tanner was playing games with him, so he had sent someone to follow them. He didn’t expect that he would treat Pearl so cruelly.

The man was curious. “Isn’t he afraid Mr. Santiago will do something to him?”

Mr. Saldan sniggered. “He probably has leverage over him. Tanner is a lot more cunning than his father. I wouldn’ t work with him if not because he was giving me a very good deal.”

In the car…

Pearl sat in the passenger’s seat, looking out the window. She didn’t move since she got in the car.

Tanner put on the turn signals and stopped in front of a convenience store. After a short wait, he came out with a medication box and handed it to her when he got in the car.

She didn’t take it.

Tanner grabbed her hand. “Are you throwing a tantrum?”

Pearl still didn’t reply and wouldn’t even look at him.

Tanner took a deep breath and grabbed her face. “You don’t want to go home anymore?”

Pearl pushed his hand away and looked at him with dead eyes. “Tanner, is torturing me not enough? You want to insult me too?”

He pressed his lips together and didn’t say anything.

Pearl’s eyes turned red. In the dark car, a tear fell somewhere he couldn’t see. “I never understood how I offended you. Do you think I caused Sandy’s death? It’s fine if you want to torture an evil woman like me, but there’s no need to slap me but then give me candy and continue insulting me.”

Tanner’s eyes were dark. “I told you never to mention Sandy.”

“I’m a person, not a rock.” Pearl looked down and held back her emotions. “I’ve done everything you asked, but you’re still unhappy about it. What do you want me to do? Do you want me to die?”

“Pearl Santiago!” he roared while he grabbed her face. “If you mention death again, I won’t let you have a good life, stop pushing me over the edge.”

She looked at him, and after a long time, her eyes slowly dimmed, then she smiled. “ Alright.”

Tanner was stunned.

Pearl took out the medication and applied it to her face.

Tanner’s heart started pounding when he saw that she was suddenly obeying. He wanted to touch her face, but he held back.
