What sort of position could a man living off his wife have?
Ethan was just a dog that Diane used as a shield, but he was still acting all high and mighty here. Blake Price laughed at just the thought of it.
He wasn’t polite at all. “Get out now, don’t get in the way of my meal with CEO Palmer.”
“You’re going too far!” Diane was angry even before Ethan could say anything. “Apologize to my husband now!”
Ethan had always protected her, so she wasn’t going to let anyone insult Ethan like that!
“Apologize?” Blake Price was stunned for a few moments before bursting out into laughter. “CEO Palmer, stop pretending. He’s just a shield so you don’t have to take it so seriously. He’s not worthy of you.”
“Besides, I think that I’m much more suitable for you. CEO Palmer, if you agree to be my woman, then I can decide to increase the profit on this project by another 3%. Believe me, this is just a small matter and can be settled very easily.”
He still had a smug look on his face, as if he was boasting about his position in Citadel Group.
“I said, apologize to Ethan!” Diane’s expression was very stern. “You say that Ethan isn’t worthy of me, but I think the one who isn’t worthy is you!”
“I will not allow you to insult my husband like this. Apologize to him now!”
Ethan looked at how serious Diane looked and felt a little touched inside. She was really angry now and this was the first time she was defending him in front of others.
“Diane, you’ve got to be kidding.” Blake Price pointed to Ethan. “This guy here? You want me to apologize to him?”
“What right does he have to compete with me?”
It was fine to just pretend that they were husband and wife, but Diane was actually for real this time.
Blake Price let out a cold smile. “Diane, if you don’t listen to me, then this project…”
“…is off!” Diane answered him directly. “I’ve already decided not to work with Citadel Group and I’ll treat Citadel Group as our main rival! Citadel Group can forget about ever expanding into Greencliff!”
Blake Price’s pupils narrowed violently. “You’re too arrogant!”
Diane couldn’t be bothered with him. She regretted agreeing to come out and causing Ethan to suffer such humiliation.
“Let’s go,” she said quietly.
“Stop right there!”
Blake Price took a step forward and grabbed Diane’s hand and looked threateningly at her. “Diane, nobody has ever dared to reject me before! Do you know what the consequences of doing this are?!”
Ethan’s expression grew cold. He reached out, grabbed Blake Price’s wrist and exerted a little strength. Blake Price’s face immediately paled and he let go of Diane’s hand.
“You can be rude to me, but you are not to bully my wife!”
Ethan looked like he was going to kill Blake Price.
Blake Price’s face was all pale and could feel that his wrist was all numb. Why was this lunatic so strong?!
“Acting all lovey dovey in front of me?” Blake Price clenched his teeth. “Diane, I’ll make you regret thi…AHHH!”
Before he could finish his sentence, Ethan slapped him hard across the face. Five bright red finger marks were imprinted on Blake Price’s face instantly.
Everyone looked over when they heard the commotion. They were all a little shocked to see Blake Price holding onto his face.
Two men and one woman – what sort of drama was happening?
“You…” Blake Price widened his eyes. “You dared to hit me?”
“If you threaten my wife again, then I won’t stop at just hitting you.”
Ethan looked at Blake Price as if he was looking at a dog he didn’t care about.
He wouldn’t have made a move because a dog had barked at him. But if this dog was disrespectful towards Diane, then he was more than happy to kick this dog dead with one leg.
Ethan then took Diane’s hand and left.
