My One-month Marriage With Mr. Hawkins

Chapter 416: Climbing the Wall

Looking at Florence’s nervous face, Stanford frowned deeply. He hesitated for a long while without looking at her. Then he squeezed a few words, “He shouldn’t have come here. ” Hence, he must leave here. Florence’s face became pale instantly. Without thinking much, she knew that Stanford must have done something to force Ernest to leave. She wondered if it had something to do with Ernest’s busy work recently. “Stanford, what have you done? You can’t hurt him. Or you are hurting me!” said Florence anxiously, her heart hopping into her throat. This was the Fraser family’s territory. In other words, the whole city was in her family’s control. Ernest had come here from thousands of miles away, and he didn’t have any power here. How could be able to defeat Stanford? Ernest would only suffer loss. At the thought of the troubles that Ernest might be facing now, Florence was so concerned about him and also blaming herself. Stanford’s temples popped fiercely. Before, he acted violently and ruthlessly, only concerning about the result without caring about other facts. However, at this moment, he had to explain to his sister. “I didn’t hurt him,” Stanford said with a migraine, “No matter how much I hate him, I won’t do anything to hurt him. But, Flory, you should stop dreaming of being together with him anymore. You’d better give up as soon as possible. ” After he said seriously, Stanford strode into the house. The tall man behind him followed in expressionlessly. Standing at the spot, Florence gazed at Stanford’s receding figure, feeling so uneasy. Although Stanford denied that he wouldn’t hurt Ernest, he must have done something to the latter, forcing him to leave this city. Florence was still trapped. If Ernest was gone, where and when could she meet him again? Thinking of that, she decided to sneak out and look for Ernest. When there was nobody around her, she wandered around in the yard, without ignoring any single corner. Then she found two or three places less guarded. One of them was the pond, but she couldn’t swim through, so she didn’t need to consider it. And the other spot was a wall inside the forest behind a bunch of flowers. The wall was steep and straight, almost three-meter high. Even if Florence could climb up, it would be difficult for her to hop off. However, this wall was the only place that she could be able to sneak out. She knew that Ernest also took this place to come in and go out. However, Florence was curious and wondering how he could hop on and off such a high wall. She couldn’t figure it out. Since she had made up her mind to sneak out from this spot, Florence sneaked into the warehouse and found a lifting ladder. Then she asked Tammy to cover for her. Tammy was frightened. With a worried look, she tried to convince Florence, “Little Miss, you can’t do it. The wall is way too high. It’s quite dangerous. Even if you’ve climbed up, how could you jump down? If you jump down, you’ll get injured easily. ” Florence shook her head determinedly

If her parents found it, Tammy wondered how furious they would be. She just hoped that they wouldn’t be found by anyone. Sure enough, under the downpour, the bodyguards on patrol in the yard all disappeared

. Florence and Tammy took the ladder all the way to the wall without being seen. Florence glinted at the high wall in front as if she had seen the hope to sneak out. Soon, she could go to the hotel and appear in front of Ernest. She wondered if he would be quite surprised. Expectantly, Florence didn’t care about the downpour at all. After putting the ladder against the wall, she urged Tammy to go away. Tammy couldn’t rest assured at all. She insisted on holding the ladder for her. “Little Miss, I’ll leave after I’m sure you are safe and sound. ”It would only take her only a few minutes to climb up. She didn’t think it would be a big deal that Tammy would leave later. Florence reached out and hugged Tammy. She said with a smile, “When I come back, I’ll treat you for a feast. ”After finishing her words, Florence didn’t want to waste any time. Holding the ladder, she carefully climbed up. Tammy was trembling with fear while watching her. “Little Miss, the ladder is quite slippery in the rain. Be careful. Slow down. ”“I’m alright. ”As she spoke, Florence continued climbing up. Although the downpour brought her some difficulties, she was careful enough, so she climbed up steadily. She was afraid of height. Although it was not quite high, Florence felt her heart tightened. Gritting her teeth, Florence reached the top of the ladder, looking at the wall that was at the same height as the ladder. Then, with one hand supporting the ladder, she climbed up to the wall. The top of the wall was more slippery than Florence had thought. It seemed that there was wax on it. She couldn’t hold it steadily at all. Florence tried several times but still failed. The longer Tammy stood and watch, the more nervous she had become. She yelled at Florence uneasily, “Little Miss, please forget it. We can figure out another way to sneak out. ”Florence had thought about other ways, and this was the only hope for her to escape by climbing over the wall here. She shook her head, looking more determined and stubborn. She thought that it was alright if she couldn’t stand steadily on the wall as she needed to slide down after she got to the other side. Hence, Florence tied the rope on her waist and stepped on the wall. What she thought was that she could slide down on the other side of the wall even if she couldn’t keep her balance. In that case, she could just get some scratches at the most.
