This Time, I Will Get My Divorce, Mr - Chapter 959
Chapter 959 Ruby Necklace
However, seeing as how happy Sophia was, Sophia chose to keep quiet. Fine, I’ll give Toby the credit this
time, she thought.
“Oh right, my dear, since you’re so gorgeous, we can’t just keep it to ourselves. The person who truly
appreciates your beauty is still waiting outside. Come now, let’s go over there and show you off to
President Fuller.” Saying that, Sophia excitedly dragged Sonia over to Toby.
Toby, who was looking down at his phone, locked his phone upon hearing the footsteps. However, the
moment he saw that person in red, he felt time stood still with his surroundings blurred. At this moment,
only one person was in his vision.
In Toby’s eyes, everything had vanished around him, leaving only the person in red before him. At this
moment, here and now, his eyes were only on that person to the extent that he could no longer perceive
the surrounding noises, as he could only hear one particular sound. That sound came from that person
with beautiful long hair as she lightly jogged over to him in her crystal high heels with a Duchenne smile
on her face.
It was at this very moment that Toby was enlightened to what was the most beautiful scenery in the entire
world. The most beautiful scenery in the world was neither the product of nature nor was it an incredible
man-made creation, but it was the very image of one’s most beloved running toward one with a smile on
Toby threw his phone to the side before he stood up and stepped away from the sofa with his arms
opened wide, and went to embrace the incoming woman.
Sonia, on the other hand, froze and was unable to react, as she had only intended to stop right in front of
Toby to ask him how she looked. In the end, he gave no opening to her, as before she even reached Toby,
Toby himself came to her and had her in his embrace instantly.
It was so unexpected that even Sophia, who was beside Sonia, could only stare dumbfoundedly at the
couple locked in an embrace. Right now, only the assistant on the side was full of excitement, as she held
her breath while wearing a satisfied smile, albeit with some feelings of regret. Her regret stemmed from
the fact that she hadn’t the courage to take her phone out to get a picture of this embrace to share with
her fellow shippers.
Although the assistant was a long-time shipper of the two, it was not easy for her to finally savor the sight
of the ones she had shipped being all lovey-dovey, yet she could not share such a beautiful scene with her
fellow shippers. Ah, who could understand this pain of mine, she thought.
Minutes passed before Sonia gently pushed Toby away. Tilting her head to look at Toby, she was about to
ask him what was wrong with him, and about the sudden embrace.
However, Toby was the first to speak up. “Gorgeous!”
Sonia immediately blushed while her heart started palpitating. Prior to this, Sonia had only blushed at
Sophia and the others’ compliments without having her heart beating fast. Yet, her heart palpitated upon
Toby’s compliment. Truly, this was the difference between receiving a compliment from a friend and a
lover. A lover’s compliment, as compared to a friend’s, truly had the ability to influence the receiver’s
“Do I really look good?” Sonia spread her arms out slightly while looking at the man before her.
The man nodded before he grabbed one of her arms and dragged her away.
“What are you doing?” she asked in confusion, but still obediently followed his pace.
Toby remained silent and only stopped right in front of a mirror. The mirror in front of them was a floor-to-
ceiling mirror that reflected the entire body of the viewer from head to toe.
Looking at the reflections in the mirror, Sonia turned her head toward him with slight confusion. “Why did
you bring me here?”
Toby gently held her chin and turned her head back to the mirror. “Look, look just how beautiful you are in
With a slight twitch at the corner of her mouth, Sonia asked, “So, you brought me all the way here just to
let me look at the mirror?”
“Yes.” Toby raised his head while admitting the reason for bringing her here. “I only wished to show you
just how beautiful you are, and how fitting the dress looks on you.” His lips were almost touching her ear
when he said this.
The warm breath he exhaled went straight into Sonia’s ear and gave her a sense of tingling. As a result,
she couldn’t help but curl her neck up.
“What’s wrong?” Toby asked as though he knew not the cause of her action, and he looked at the tip of
Sonia’s reddened ear with drooping eyes.
Sonia rubbed the tip of her ear before she replied in a slightly soft voice, “Nothing.”
Seeing that she was reluctant to speak further, Toby was happy, as he could continue to cling to her much
more openly. “Look, don’t you think you’re beautiful?” Toby said with his fingers on her chin.
Sonia then took a good look in the mirror. Although she had done neither the matching hairstyle nor the
matching makeup with the dress she was wearing, the dress was so beautiful to the extent that it’d still
make the wearer look good without doing anything extra. Here, one would remember the saying: ‘the
clothes made the man.’ However, much more important than the dress, Sonia herself was a beauty, as her
delicate looks suited well with the bright red dress. Such a combination would naturally shock all those
who laid eyes on her to their very core.
“Yeah, I do think so.” Sonia touched her face and nodded all while looking at her reflection in the mirror.
Although she was slightly shy when she said such thoughts about herself, she knew that to be the truth,
and couldn’t very well speak otherwise.
“However, don’t you think something’s missing?” Toby released her chin and slowly traced his fingers
down before caressing her neck.
As she was feeling ticklish from his touch, she glared at him through the mirror and asked him to stop his
Toby chuckled but still did as he was told and stopped his caress.
Only when Sonia was satisfied did her glare soften with her voice escaping from her red lips. “Il guess the
matching makeup and hairstyle, right?”
“Wrong.” Toby shaok his head. “Those are only secondary.”
“Hm? If not makeup and hairstyle, then what can it be?” Sonia looked curiously at that reflection of that
devilishly handsome man in the mirror.
The man said nothing and only flashed a smirk at Sonia’s reflection before he had his hands removed
from her to reach into his suit pocket. Looking at his reflection, Sonia came to the assumption that the
man was looking for something. She then turned to him and gazed curiously at his pocket. “What are
you looking for?”
Toby did not answer her before finally taking his hand out of his pocket. However, Sonia could not see
what he was holding, as his hand was clenched into a fist. In a nutshell, he was being mysterious at
this moment. “Turn around,” he said without answering her question.
Sonia rolled her eyes. Fine, I’ll play along, she thought while obediently turning her attention back to
the mirror, as she was curious about what he planned to do.
From behind Sonia, Toby extended his fist out beside her ear and slowly opened his fist. Instantly, an
item with the shine of red and silver came falling from the palm of his hand. It was a lustrous ruby
necklace that was brimming with opulence. The ruby necklace that swayed slightly under Toby’s hand
had a beautiful radiance of red, from the gemstone, and silver, from the necklace.
Now, Sonia was staring wide-eyed at the man smirking in the mirror. It was only after moments passed
did she manage to speak up, albeit with trembling lips. “You…”
“Don’t move.” Toby raised his voice slightly.
Sonia stopped moving instinctively with her mouth shut.
Then, Toby reached his other hand over from her other side to open the necklace and helped her put
Sonia stood dumbfounded the entire process and only managed to come to her senses when the
necklace was on her neck. Gently touching the red ruby on her neck, she asked, “What are you—”
“Don’t touch it. You look beautiful wearing it. The necklace suits you very well.” Toby was worried that
Sonia would take off the necklace and hurriedly removed her hand that was resting on the necklace.
Upon noticing how nervous Toby was, Sonia was taken aback before she finally let out a laugh.
“What’s up with you? I never said I was going to take it off. I was just curious. When did you prepare
