Back in Love novel Chapter 1

As the night fell, the sound of cicadas echoed endlessly under the starry skies. In a villa sat a lonely figure as she stared at the beautiful scenery ahead of her. "Don't look for me anymore. I won't go!"

Louise Gu refused the caller. She was wearing a silky night gown that left almost nothing to the imagination. She placed her phone on the table and looked out of the window, sighing. Why hadn't he come back yet?


Just then, the door of her room flew open.

She staggered right up, eyes widening in fright.

A man dressed in a black suit came walking in. He was tall with a well-built figure. He was also extraordinarily handsome with dark eyebrows and almost luminous eyes. However, there was something about him that made her tremble in fear.

Before she could react, he threw a folder at her.

"That's the divorce agreement. Sign it," he snarled.

The distinct smell of alcohol made her nauseous.

Louisa Gu felt cold all over as she stared at the document in her hands. She trembled, refusing to look at him in the eye.

"Why?" she bit out.

Jacob Gu snorted, sneering at her. "Why? You have the nerve to ask me why? If you hadn't climbed into my bed and forced me into sleeping with you a year ago, do you think my grandma would allow me to marry you? If she doesn't love you that much, we would never be together. Now that she's going abroad, it's your time to leave me. Sign your name here and get the hell out of my house!"

Tears slid down her cheeks. The document was already shaking in her hands as she took a deep breath.

Her bottom lip was trembling.

"I–I didn't mean to... please..." she stuttered out. However, the man showed no signs of mercy.

"You didn't mean to? Haven't you dreamed of sleeping with me ever since you were younger?"

Jacob Gu grabbed her slender wrists, pulling her closer towards him. His nails dug into her skin, causing her to wince.

"I love–"

"Shut up!" he roared.

The last thing he wanted was to hear her voice.

Jacob Gu picked up the divorce agreement and shoved it into the woman's arms. "I don't want to hear any more of your nonsense! Just sign it." He gritted his teeth.

She scowled. "Not until you tell me why!"

"Why? You want to know why?" he yelled out. "I hate you. That's why! If you're smart enough, you'll sign it right now. I'll even make it easy for you. Otherwise, I'll make sure you don't even get a penny."

Jacob Gu didn't care what would happen at the end. All he wanted was for her to get out of his sight.

The position of being his wife was never meant for her.

Different emotions ran through her as she processed his words. It felt as if her entire body had grown numb from his painful grip. Plucking up the little courage she had, she forced herself to look him in the eye.

"No! I won't divorce you till the day that I die. You can't do this to me, Jacob!"

His face darkened at her refusal.

"Fine. Do you really want to be my woman?" He brought her body close to his chest as his arm wrapped around her waist. "You want to sleep with me, don't you?" Jacob Gu snarled.

Louisa Gu wrinkled her nose as the strong stench of alcohol invaded her nostrils. "No, it's not like that."

Her eyes were already tinged red from crying.

"Not like that? Aren't you trying to seduce me by dressing like this? Since you don't want a divorce, then you might as well do your job as a wife! Let's see..." He stepped towards her, looking like a predator leering at his prey.

"What are you doing?" she stuttered out.

She had never seen Jacob Gu like this.

The fire in his eyes was blazing. If looks could kill, she'd be taken into a shortcut to hell.

She took a step back.

"What? Pretending to be innocent now, aren't you? You've been waiting for this a whole year, haven't you? Now, you've succeeded. If you don't want to divorce me, then be my wife."

He shoved her onto the table.

"Ah! No!"

she yelled out, tears welling up in her eyes.

However, her screams fell deaf to Jacob as he bunched up her skirt around her waist. Her screams of help did nothing to appease him.

Her heart felt as if it was being smashed into a thousand pieces.

"Jacob," she gasped out.

"Please... I beg of you. No! Help!" she screamed as he went inside her. Tears continuously streamed down her face as she took in the pain.

He snarled, "How dare you call for help? Isn't that what you want? Shouldn't you be happy? Just take it!"

He pushed into her once again and she yelled out. Her fingernails were clawing down his back as she tried to kick him on the stomach. However, her continued resistance only seemed to have encouraged him even more. "Why are you doing this to me? Is my love that worthless?" She sobbed, pounding on his arms, but he didn't stop.

In his eyes, she was worthless.
