Chapter 3374 Beyond His Reach
“I see. Well, I don’t have any business trips during this period of time. I’ll accompany you for this season’s filming,” Jake said in a tentative voice whilst playing with her hair.
His eyes flickered with uncertainty as he recalled the time Love In Progress was being filmed. He had merely taken the same flight as her but was already given a tight slap on his face by Megan.
“Uhm…” Sure enough, Megan hesitated.
She frowned in thought because she still didn’t want Jake to appear on the set. However, since Sky Entertainment was sponsoring this season, it wouldn’t be odd to see him there.
“I think it’s better if you don’t go. Since you don’t have to travel anywhere for business, shouldn’t you stay home and have a good rest?”
After much deliberation, Megan still felt that it was better than he did not go. Hence, she ended up refusing him.
Hearing this, Jake’s fingers paused on her hair and his face grew taut.
He couldn’t fathom why she would be so repulsed by the idea of him appearing next to her. If it was merely because of the reason she just gave him, she might as well have claimed that she saw a fish breathing on land. It was that ridiculous.
Thinking of this, Jake let out a mirthless laugh. Then, he replied in an impassive voice, “If you don’t let me go, I’ll strap you to this bed today. You can count on it.”
Megan was taken aback and her expression turned grim. She didn’t expect Jake to actually use the hard way on her. If he really did this, she would never stand a chance to overpower him.
What should I do?
Jake is the kind who is only open to persuasion and not coercion. Perhaps I should put down my pride and try coaxing him?
With that thought in mind, Megan turned in Jake’s arms and gave him her best puppy face. “Don’t put me in a tough spot, okay? I’m only going there for filming. I’ll be back very soon. You really don’t need to follow me there.”
Hearing what Megan said, Jake’s anger burned even brighter. I’m only going to show up on set. How’s that putting her in a tough spot?
His face immediately grew cold, and determination gleamed in his eyes. It was evident that there was no changing his mind.
“It’s useless no matter what you say. As I’ve said earlier, if you don’t let me go, you’ll be strapped to this bed today.
His reply stunned Megan. When she came back to her senses, she signed inwardly.
She knew that if she continued going head-to-head with him, it would only lead to a severe argument. Thus, the best solution was for the two of them to stop talking and take some time to calm down.
Megan lay on the bed and clamped her mouth shut. Fiddling with her own fingers as her mind continued to race, she gradually drifted off the sleep again.
When she woke up again, Jake was no longer beside her. Megan widened her eyes in surprise. Thinking that this was the perfect opportunity to escape, she jumped out of bed and tugged on her clothes in record time, then hurriedly swinging the door open to leave.
However, right when she was about to walk out, a sturdy figure appeared at the door with two suitcases in his hands.
It was none other than Jake. Seeing as he was all dressed up, Megan knew that there was no chance of escaping unnoticed or getting rid of him anymore.
If I knew this was going to happen, I never would’ve told him about my trip.
Alas, there was no use crying over spilled milk. Megan heaved a sigh, but remained silent otherwise, which was tantamount to acquiescing to his behavior.
Jake felt slightly smug upon seeing this. No matter how stubborn a donkey was, there would still be a day when it was taught well. Not to mention, Megan was a smart woman who knew when she was beaten.
He opened the door and flashed a smile at her. “Let’s go. It’s eleven already. We have barely enough time to get there.”
“Mm, let’s go.”
Both of them left for the airport together. Upon arriving, they met up with the Love In Progress team. When everyone saw Megan and Jake appearing together, they displayed varying degrees of surprise on their faces.
Among them, only a small number of people who participated in the second season weren’t surprised, including Jonas.
He glanced at them and nodded politely before quietly stepping aside. To him, Megan was currently someone beyond his reach.
