Hearing this, Astor frowned.
“B*st rd, where have you been?! Natalie suffered so much, yet you hid away like a coward!” After seeing Astor, Luisa became furious and scolded him.
Astor didn’t reply, he glanced at Luke and asked, “What’s going on? Why is Luke here?”
Luisa growled, “How dare you ask!”
“Yesterday Natalie went to collect the debt from Pedro Fisher of Negino Commerce, but she was forced to drink a whole bottle of wine! If Mr. Luke didn’t show up to save Natalie, she would suffer a lot!”
Hector’s face was also a little gloomy, and his eyes showed slight dissatisfaction when he looked at Astor.
He said solemnly, “Astor, since I entrusted Natalie to your care, you must take this responsibility.”
Luke smiled and said, “You don’t have to be too polite. Natalie and I are good friends, and this is what I should do! Plus, you don’t have to scold Astor. He’s just a prison guard. It would be useless even if he showed up.”
“You don’t need to always thank me, I’m a bit embarrassed.”
After Astor heard Luke’s words, he shook his head and laughed. “I rescued Natalie last night. When did it become your credit?”
Everyone was stunned.
Luke laughed and said, “You’re new here, so you need some credit to stand firm. I understand. Well… This matter has nothing to do with me. Astor was the one who rescued Natalie. I just happened to come to visit her today!”
Luke’s words directly made Luisa extremely displeased with Astor.
“Astor, you have no ability, but Hector insisted on your marriage with Natalie, and I have nothing to say. People can be incompetent, but they can’t be shameless!”
“Luke saved Natalie, and you said it was your credit? How shameful! You are just a prison guard. How could you dare to offend the Negino Commerce?” Luisa stomped on Astor’s dignity with no mercy.
A smug smile appeared on Luke’s face. And then, Natalie woke up, but her head still ached.
Natalie saw her family and felt relieved.
She vaguely remembered last night and asked Luke in confusion, “Mr. Luke, did you save me last night?”
Luke smiled helplessly and said, “Natalie, it wasn’t me. It was Astor who saved you.”
Luisa said loudly, “Mr. Luke, you are kind and willing to help this useless bast*rd, but I can’t stand it!”
“Natalie, Mr. Luke saved you last night. Otherwise, you don’t know what would happen! Your good husband had his phone turned off all night. How relaxing.”
Natalie also vaguely remembered that there was a man who had saved her. After hearing what her mother said, she looked gratefully at Luke.
“I seem to remember. Thank you, Mr. Luke. If you didn’t save me, I would have been miserable.” Natalie breathed a sigh of relief and thanked Luke.
Luisa became even more furious and said to Astor, “What else do you have to say now?”
Astor shrugged and said, “I asked Sonya to send Natalie back yesterday. If you don’t believe me, just ask her.”
Luke nodded and said, “I’ll call Sonya and tell her to tell everyone that it was you who saved Natalie.”
Astor glanced at Luke disdainfully.
Natalie glanced at Astor with some contempt. She thought this man was useless and shameless as well. It was Luke who saved her from Pedro, but he had to take the credit.
What a shameful man!
I hope Dad will see him through very soon, then I can ask for a divorce.
Hector patted Astor’s shoulder and said earnestly, “Astor, people can be poor, but they can’t have no ambition.”
Astor said, “I understand.”
He smiled and didn’t bother to argue about these things.
“Natalie, you don’t have to worry about the 20 million, I said I will help you.” Luke smiled at Natalie.
“Thank you.” Natalie breathed a sigh of relief, but her face suddenly changed, “I remember that I smashed Pedro’s head with a wine bottle!”
After hearing her words, Hector suddenly frowned, and Luisa gasped.
Luke’s smile froze, and he comforted Natalie with a stiff tone, “It’s okay. I’ll talk with Mr. Mendez. It’ll be alright.”
Luisa said, “Sorry to bother you, Mr. Luke!”
Meanwhile, a Mercedes–Benz stopped outside.
Sonya got out of the car, entered the house with some fruit, and smiled. “Natalie, I’m here to visit you!”
“Sonya is here. Come in and sit!” After seeing Sonya, Luisa smiled and welcomed her inside.
The Ranchy family was also quite influential in Mimar and were the Johnson family’s business partners. Hanna and Natalie were very close, so she was always welcomed by the Johnson family.
Natalie was not entirely sure that the person who rescued her yesterday was Luke. After all, before she fell asleep, she was so drunk that she couldn’t see that person’s appearance clearly.
She dragged Sonya to her side and said, “Sonya, you went with me yesterday. You didn’t drink much, so you should remember things clearly.”
Sonya was stunned for a moment, then nodded. “Yes.”
Natalie said to Sonya in a deep voice, “Tell me the truth. Who saved me last night?”
Hector looked at Sonya as well. Natalie was sent back by Sonya last night, so Sonya must know the truth.
Astor shrugged. He didn’t care about Luke. But he would be happy to see Sonya tear up Luke’s disguise if she could tell the truth.
“You really don’t remember anything?” Sonya asked Natalie with a smile.
“I drank a whole bottle of wine yesterday and had no memory of last night at all!” Natalie said with a wry smile.
