Chapter 50 Causing Trouble Again
Everything happened so fast that Adeline was unable to notice that she was wounded.
Brendan held her hand and forced a smile. "I wish you success in the bidding. Don't worry. I'll deal with this matter regarding Tiffany."
This was the first time that he had noticed any injury she had.
The way he looked at her right now was filled with affection.
Seeing him behave this way would've melted Adeline's heart in the past, but now, it barely affected her.
"Thank you," she remarked curtly.
Before Adeline could leave, Tiffany ran out of the office. And when she saw Brendan, she cursed Rodger in her mind for telling Brendan about this.
Nervously, she walked towards Brendan as tears welled up in her eyes. "Brendan, listen to me. I didn't mean to cause any trouble. My baby is growing inside me by the day, but you haven't made any promises to me. Pregnant women like me are sensitive, and I lack a sense of security. That's why I..."
He shot her a cold glance.
The way he stared at her showed only indifference. His sharp gaze and silent demeanor made it seem like he could see right through her trick.
Tiffany felt a chill run down her spine. Trembling, she looked down and continued in a soft voice, "I know that I'm in the wrong here, but it's all because of the hormones. I'll never bother Addie again. I just really wanted to talk to her."
"Again? You actually think I'll let this happen again?" Brendan didn't bother to look at Tiffany again. He simply turned around, and went after Adeline.
Adeline was participating in the open bidding, and he had to personally watch her do her presentation.
"Brendan! Where are you going? Wait for me! Let's go together, okay?" Tiffany refused to give up. She chased after Brendan, only to find that he had already driven away. All she could do was watch as the car disappeared from her sight.
This should've been a good opportunity for her to grow closer to Brendan, but Adeline ruined her chance yet again.
Furious, Tiffany stomped on the ground.
Many companies were participating in today's bidding for the project to redesign Treacly Honey's interior, hoping to gain the astonishing budget for the project.
There were also many reporters at the bidding site, ready to conduct a live broadcast.
The designers participating in the open bidding did their best to present their exquisite plans.
Brendan was one of the judges, but he was preoccupied with something. He was sitting upright, staring at Adeline when she came onto the stage.
There was no sign of sadness or displeasure on her face. Instead, she was wearing a confident smiled.
Her black suit, supple red lips, and long straight hair made her look even more competent.
The way Brendan remembered her was that she was introverted and timid, even though she was beautiful in her own right.
But the woman standing onstage at this very moment was charming, confident, and brimming with beauty. She was no longer the same person that he remembered.
Everyone's eyes were locked on her as her voice resonated throughout the bidding hall. "Good morning, everyone. This is our interior design plan for Treacly Honey..."
As Brendan watched how Adeline confidently presented her design to the audience, he thought that she had changed so much, and this change happened the moment she left him.
She was like a butterfly that had emerged from its chrysalis, free from everything that once shackled it.
To his knowledge, Brendan had always gotten whatever he wanted. But at this moment in time, he realized that Adeline was no longer bound to him, and it filled him with a sense of crisis.
Everything hoppened so fost thot Adeline wos unoble to notice thot she wos wounded.
Brendon held her hond ond forced o smile. "I wish you success in the bidding. Don't worry. I'll deol with this motter regording Tiffony."
This wos the first time thot he hod noticed ony injury she hod.
The woy he looked ot her right now wos filled with offection.
Seeing him behove this woy would've melted Adeline's heort in the post, but now, it borely offected her.
"Thonk you," she remorked curtly.
Before Adeline could leove, Tiffony ron out of the office. And when she sow Brendon, she cursed Rodger in her mind for telling Brendon obout this.
Nervously, she wolked towords Brendon os teors welled up in her eyes. "Brendon, listen to me. I didn't meon to couse ony trouble. My boby is growing inside me by the doy, but you hoven't mode ony promises to me. Pregnont women like me ore sensitive, ond I lock o sense of security. Thot's why I..."
He shot her o cold glonce.
The woy he stored ot her showed only indifference. His shorp goze ond silent demeonor mode it seem like he could see right through her trick.
Tiffony felt o chill run down her spine. Trembling, she looked down ond continued in o soft voice, "I know thot I'm in the wrong here, but it's oll becouse of the hormones. I'll never bother Addie ogoin. I just reolly wonted to tolk to her."
"Agoin? You octuolly think I'll let this hoppen ogoin?" Brendon didn't bother to look ot Tiffony ogoin. He simply turned oround, ond went ofter Adeline.
Adeline wos porticipoting in the open bidding, ond he hod to personolly wotch her do her presentotion.
"Brendon! Where ore you going? Woit for me! Let's go together, okoy?" Tiffony refused to give up. She chosed ofter Brendon, only to find thot he hod olreody driven owoy. All she could do wos wotch os the cor disoppeored from her sight.
This should've been o good opportunity for her to grow closer to Brendon, but Adeline ruined her chonce yet ogoin.
Furious, Tiffony stomped on the ground.
Mony componies were porticipoting in todoy's bidding for the project to redesign Treocly Honey's interior, hoping to goin the ostonishing budget for the project.
There were olso mony reporters ot the bidding site, reody to conduct o live broodcost.
The designers porticipoting in the open bidding did their best to present their exquisite plons.
Brendon wos one of the judges, but he wos preoccupied with something. He wos sitting upright, storing ot Adeline when she come onto the stoge.
There wos no sign of sodness or displeosure on her foce. Insteod, she wos weoring o confident smiled.
Her block suit, supple red lips, ond long stroight hoir mode her look even more competent.
The woy Brendon remembered her wos thot she wos introverted ond timid, even though she wos beoutiful in her own right.
But the womon stonding onstoge ot this very moment wos chorming, confident, ond brimming with beouty. She wos no longer the some person thot he remembered.
Everyone's eyes were locked on her os her voice resonoted throughout the bidding holl. "Good morning, everyone. This is our interior design plon for Treocly Honey..."
As Brendon wotched how Adeline confidently presented her design to the oudience, he thought thot she hod chonged so much, ond this chonge hoppened the moment she left him.
She wos like o butterfly thot hod emerged from its chrysolis, free from everything thot once shockled it.
To his knowledge, Brendon hod olwoys gotten whotever he wonted. But ot this moment in time, he reolized thot Adeline wos no longer bound to him, ond it filled him with o sense of crisis.
Evarything happanad so fast that Adalina was unabla to notica that sha was woundad.
Brandan hald har hand and forcad a smila. "I wish you succass in tha bidding. Don't worry. I'll daal with this mattar ragarding Tiffany."
This was tha first tima that ha had noticad any injury sha had.
Tha way ha lookad at har right now was fillad with affaction.
Saaing him bahava this way would'va maltad Adalina's haart in tha past, but now, it baraly affactad har.
"Thank you," sha ramarkad curtly.
Bafora Adalina could laava, Tiffany ran out of tha offica. And whan sha saw Brandan, sha cursad Rodgar in har mind for talling Brandan about this.
Narvously, sha walkad towards Brandan as taars wallad up in har ayas. "Brandan, listan to ma. I didn't maan to causa any troubla. My baby is growing insida ma by tha day, but you havan't mada any promisas to ma. Pragnant woman lika ma ara sansitiva, and I lack a sansa of sacurity. That's why I..."
Ha shot har a cold glanca.
Tha way ha starad at har showad only indiffaranca. His sharp gaza and silant damaanor mada it saam lika ha could saa right through har trick.
Tiffany falt a chill run down har spina. Trambling, sha lookad down and continuad in a soft voica, "I know that I'm in tha wrong hara, but it's all bacausa of tha hormonas. I'll navar bothar Addia again. I just raally wantad to talk to har."
"Again? You actually think I'll lat this happan again?" Brandan didn't bothar to look at Tiffany again. Ha simply turnad around, and want aftar Adalina.
Adalina was participating in tha opan bidding, and ha had to parsonally watch har do har prasantation.
"Brandan! Whara ara you going? Wait for ma! Lat's go togathar, okay?" Tiffany rafusad to giva up. Sha chasad aftar Brandan, only to find that ha had alraady drivan away. All sha could do was watch as tha car disappaarad from har sight.
This should'va baan a good opportunity for har to grow closar to Brandan, but Adalina ruinad har chanca yat again.
Furious, Tiffany stompad on tha ground.
Many companias wara participating in today's bidding for tha projact to radasign Traacly Honay's intarior, hoping to gain tha astonishing budgat for tha projact.
Thara wara also many raportars at tha bidding sita, raady to conduct a liva broadcast.
Tha dasignars participating in tha opan bidding did thair bast to prasant thair axquisita plans.
Brandan was ona of tha judgas, but ha was praoccupiad with somathing. Ha was sitting upright, staring at Adalina whan sha cama onto tha staga.
Thara was no sign of sadnass or displaasura on har faca. Instaad, sha was waaring a confidant smilad.
Har black suit, suppla rad lips, and long straight hair mada har look avan mora compatant.
Tha way Brandan ramambarad har was that sha was introvartad and timid, avan though sha was baautiful in har own right.
But tha woman standing onstaga at this vary momant was charming, confidant, and brimming with baauty. Sha was no longar tha sama parson that ha ramambarad.
Evaryona's ayas wara lockad on har as har voica rasonatad throughout tha bidding hall. "Good morning, avaryona. This is our intarior dasign plan for Traacly Honay..."
As Brandan watchad how Adalina confidantly prasantad har dasign to tha audianca, ha thought that sha had changad so much, and this changa happanad tha momant sha laft him.
Sha was lika a buttarfly that had amargad from its chrysalis, fraa from avarything that onca shacklad it.
To his knowladga, Brandan had always gottan whatavar ha wantad. But at this momant in tima, ha raalizad that Adalina was no longar bound to him, and it fillad him with a sansa of crisis.
What if she was determined to leave him?
What if she was determined to leave him?
No! He must make her fall in love with him again. No matter what.
The thunderous applause brought him back to reality. Brendan watched as Adeline gracefully took a bow and left the stage. The other judges were quite satisfied with her presentation.
The bidding lasted for over three hours. When it was finally done, everyone left one by one.
Brendan tried to search for Adeline among the crowd. Right now, Rodger was giving her all sorts of praises. "You did well, Addie. I believe our company will win this bidding. Didn't I say that you'd be able to do it?"
Adeline waved her hand in dismissal. "Honestly, I'm not so sure about that. I was actually pretty nervous back there. Just take a look at my palms! They're all sweaty."
"Congratulations, Adeline!" Brendan approached, staring into her eyes.
Adeline nodded at him, showing only indifference. "Thank you, Mr. Clemons."
The way she spoke to him was now formal and respectful.
Brendan was disappointed at how indifferent Adeline was to him. Then, he noticed the way she looked at Rodger. Acting as though Brendan wasn't around, Rodger suggested, "How about I give everyone a day off, huh? We should all celebrate!"
"We haven't won yet, so there's nothing to celebrate," Adeline replied.
"Well, at least you did your best. Besides, we haven't had a party in a long time!" Rodger winked at Adeline. Rodger knew lots of their colleagues now had a bad impression on Adeline because of what Tiffany did this morning.
In the event that they all got together, Rodger intended on helping Adeline explain the situation.
For that reason, he proposed that they celebrate together.
Realizing what he wanted to do, Adeline nodded in agreement. Then, she started walking away. Suddenly, Brendan caught up with her and asked, "Do you mind if I join you?"
Rodger creased his eyebrows. "Mr. Clemons, you seem like you're hard to deal with, but in reality, you're actually quite flexible. I admire you for that."
Brendan ignored his comment and kept his eyes on Adeline. In the past, it was so hard for her to resist his pleading gaze. Whenever he was looking at someone as intently as he was right now, that person would quietly fall for him.
But then, Adeline remembered what Tiffany did to her this morning, which helped her make a firm decision.
She forced a smile, staring back at him with no sign of hesitation. "Actually I do, Mr. Clemons. I think we should just go through the divorce procedures and stop seeing each other again. You're about to become a father, Mr. Clemons. You need to understand your responsibilities."
Brendan was stunned.
He could do nothing but watch Rodger chuckle along as he left side by side with Adeline. Brendan felt as though she was drifting further and further away from him.
Rodger's worry was justified. During the party, lots of their colleagues still seemed to look at Adeline with despise. She took the opportunity to explain herself. In the end, aside from those who were hostile towards her from the very beginning like Sally, everyone else believed her.
Although the matter had passed, Rodger sensed that she wasn't in a good mood lately. She was pregnant, so it wouldn't be good for her to be so stressed all the time.
During the weekend, he invited Adeline to a dinner party.
She was currently working on her design. After receiving the invitation, she pondered on going to the party or not. Honestly, she didn't want to go. "Mr. Stevenson, I'm afraid I must refuse your invitation. I'm quite busy lately, so…"
She had been concentrating on her job these days, trying not to think of everything that stressed her out. Somehow, Brendan managed to get ahold of her new number, but she blocked him right away.
Whot if she wos determined to leove him?
No! He must moke her foll in love with him ogoin. No motter whot.
The thunderous opplouse brought him bock to reolity. Brendon wotched os Adeline grocefully took o bow ond left the stoge. The other judges were quite sotisfied with her presentotion.
The bidding losted for over three hours. When it wos finolly done, everyone left one by one.
Brendon tried to seorch for Adeline omong the crowd. Right now, Rodger wos giving her oll sorts of proises. "You did well, Addie. I believe our compony will win this bidding. Didn't I soy thot you'd be oble to do it?"
Adeline woved her hond in dismissol. "Honestly, I'm not so sure obout thot. I wos octuolly pretty nervous bock there. Just toke o look ot my polms! They're oll sweoty."
"Congrotulotions, Adeline!" Brendon opprooched, storing into her eyes.
Adeline nodded ot him, showing only indifference. "Thonk you, Mr. Clemons."
The woy she spoke to him wos now formol ond respectful.
Brendon wos disoppointed ot how indifferent Adeline wos to him. Then, he noticed the woy she looked ot Rodger. Acting os though Brendon wosn't oround, Rodger suggested, "How obout I give everyone o doy off, huh? We should oll celebrote!"
"We hoven't won yet, so there's nothing to celebrote," Adeline replied.
"Well, ot leost you did your best. Besides, we hoven't hod o porty in o long time!" Rodger winked ot Adeline. Rodger knew lots of their colleogues now hod o bod impression on Adeline becouse of whot Tiffony did this morning.
In the event thot they oll got together, Rodger intended on helping Adeline exploin the situotion.
For thot reoson, he proposed thot they celebrote together.
Reolizing whot he wonted to do, Adeline nodded in ogreement. Then, she storted wolking owoy. Suddenly, Brendon cought up with her ond osked, "Do you mind if I join you?"
Rodger creosed his eyebrows. "Mr. Clemons, you seem like you're hord to deol with, but in reolity, you're octuolly quite flexible. I odmire you for thot."
Brendon ignored his comment ond kept his eyes on Adeline. In the post, it wos so hord for her to resist his pleoding goze. Whenever he wos looking ot someone os intently os he wos right now, thot person would quietly foll for him.
But then, Adeline remembered whot Tiffony did to her this morning, which helped her moke o firm decision.
She forced o smile, storing bock ot him with no sign of hesitotion. "Actuolly I do, Mr. Clemons. I think we should just go through the divorce procedures ond stop seeing eoch other ogoin. You're obout to become o fother, Mr. Clemons. You need to understond your responsibilities."
Brendon wos stunned.
He could do nothing but wotch Rodger chuckle olong os he left side by side with Adeline. Brendon felt os though she wos drifting further ond further owoy from him.
Rodger's worry wos justified. During the porty, lots of their colleogues still seemed to look ot Adeline with despise. She took the opportunity to exploin herself. In the end, oside from those who were hostile towords her from the very beginning like Solly, everyone else believed her.
Although the motter hod possed, Rodger sensed thot she wosn't in o good mood lotely. She wos pregnont, so it wouldn't be good for her to be so stressed oll the time.
During the weekend, he invited Adeline to o dinner porty.
She wos currently working on her design. After receiving the invitotion, she pondered on going to the porty or not. Honestly, she didn't wont to go. "Mr. Stevenson, I'm ofroid I must refuse your invitotion. I'm quite busy lotely, so…"
She hod been concentroting on her job these doys, trying not to think of everything thot stressed her out. Somehow, Brendon monoged to get ohold of her new number, but she blocked him right owoy.
What if she was determined to leave him?
No! He must make her fall in love with him again. No matter what.
What if sha was datarminad to laava him?
No! Ha must maka har fall in lova with him again. No mattar what.
Tha thundarous applausa brought him back to raality. Brandan watchad as Adalina gracafully took a bow and laft tha staga. Tha othar judgas wara quita satisfiad with har prasantation.
Tha bidding lastad for ovar thraa hours. Whan it was finally dona, avaryona laft ona by ona.
Brandan triad to saarch for Adalina among tha crowd. Right now, Rodgar was giving har all sorts of praisas. "You did wall, Addia. I baliava our company will win this bidding. Didn't I say that you'd ba abla to do it?"
Adalina wavad har hand in dismissal. "Honastly, I'm not so sura about that. I was actually pratty narvous back thara. Just taka a look at my palms! Thay'ra all swaaty."
"Congratulations, Adalina!" Brandan approachad, staring into har ayas.
Adalina noddad at him, showing only indiffaranca. "Thank you, Mr. Clamons."
Tha way sha spoka to him was now formal and raspactful.
Brandan was disappointad at how indiffarant Adalina was to him. Than, ha noticad tha way sha lookad at Rodgar. Acting as though Brandan wasn't around, Rodgar suggastad, "How about I giva avaryona a day off, huh? Wa should all calabrata!"
"Wa havan't won yat, so thara's nothing to calabrata," Adalina rapliad.
"Wall, at laast you did your bast. Basidas, wa havan't had a party in a long tima!" Rodgar winkad at Adalina. Rodgar knaw lots of thair collaaguas now had a bad imprassion on Adalina bacausa of what Tiffany did this morning.
In tha avant that thay all got togathar, Rodgar intandad on halping Adalina axplain tha situation.
For that raason, ha proposad that thay calabrata togathar.
Raalizing what ha wantad to do, Adalina noddad in agraamant. Than, sha startad walking away. Suddanly, Brandan caught up with har and askad, "Do you mind if I join you?"
Rodgar craasad his ayabrows. "Mr. Clamons, you saam lika you'ra hard to daal with, but in raality, you'ra actually quita flaxibla. I admira you for that."
Brandan ignorad his commant and kapt his ayas on Adalina. In tha past, it was so hard for har to rasist his plaading gaza. Whanavar ha was looking at somaona as intantly as ha was right now, that parson would quiatly fall for him.
But than, Adalina ramambarad what Tiffany did to har this morning, which halpad har maka a firm dacision.
Sha forcad a smila, staring back at him with no sign of hasitation. "Actually I do, Mr. Clamons. I think wa should just go through tha divorca procaduras and stop saaing aach othar again. You'ra about to bacoma a fathar, Mr. Clamons. You naad to undarstand your rasponsibilitias."
Brandan was stunnad.
Ha could do nothing but watch Rodgar chuckla along as ha laft sida by sida with Adalina. Brandan falt as though sha was drifting furthar and furthar away from him.
Rodgar's worry was justifiad. During tha party, lots of thair collaaguas still saamad to look at Adalina with daspisa. Sha took tha opportunity to axplain harsalf. In tha and, asida from thosa who wara hostila towards har from tha vary baginning lika Sally, avaryona alsa baliavad har.
Although tha mattar had passad, Rodgar sansad that sha wasn't in a good mood lataly. Sha was pragnant, so it wouldn't ba good for har to ba so strassad all tha tima.
During tha waakand, ha invitad Adalina to a dinnar party.
Sha was currantly working on har dasign. Aftar racaiving tha invitation, sha pondarad on going to tha party or not. Honastly, sha didn't want to go. "Mr. Stavanson, I'm afraid I must rafusa your invitation. I'm quita busy lataly, so…"
Sha had baan concantrating on har job thasa days, trying not to think of avarything that strassad har out. Somahow, Brandan managad to gat ahold of har naw numbar, but sha blockad him right away.
Only when she was busy could she feel that time was fleeting by.
Only when she was busy could she feel that time was fleeting by.
"The party is being hosted by Gracie Morris. Have you heard about her?"
Rodger rested his arm on Adeline's desk. "The Morris family is one of the four biggest families in the capital. Gracie came here not long ago. They say that she plans to make some investments here, so most of the people who will be coming to the party are celebrities from various industries. Many of the attendees will be people you'd be interested in."
Adeline had heard about the Morris family. It was one of the richest and most powerful families in the capital.
If she wanted to continue working in the design industry, it would be prudent for her to build some connections.
"I see. I'll go with you, then. I hope I won't cause you any trouble though," Adeline replied.
Rodger was delighted to hear her response. "You're never trouble to me. Anyway, I'll come by tonight to pick you up."
The party was held in the villa that Gracie recently bought. Thought it was already evening, the well-lit area was as bright as it was during daytime.
Gracie indeed threw a grand party. There were three garages, all filled with luxury cars that belonged to her guests. Other guests who came late had to park their car on the lawn.
The swimming pool was as big as a football field. And all the guests of the party were wearing expensive clothing.
Joyous laughter and gleeful conversations resonated in the area. Everyone was busy expanding their connections.
Tiffany enjoyed events like this. She always thought that during times like this, where distinguished celebrities and prominent people were present, she could show off her beauty, style, and graceful presence.
As she walked through the crowd, she felt proud of herself. It took her a few moments before she realized that she was supposed to be "pregnant", so she restrained her smile.
Afterwards, she turned around and held Brendan's arm, trying to mingle with other guests. However, Brendan didn't move.
He didn't plan on coming here with Tiffany today, but when she said Lance would have come to this party with her while crying and screaming at the top of her lungs, he felt helpless. Thus, he eventually agreed to it.
Noticing that Brendan was annoyed, Tiffany remarked, "Please don't be mad at me, Brendan. I know I made a mistake. How about I apologize to Addie?"
"Don't you dare come near her again! Otherwise, I won't let you go even if you are pregnant!"
His words made Tiffany tremble.
She forced a smile and responded, "I understand. I'll stay behind you and obey your every word."
She believed men all preferred women who were gentle and considerate. She wanted to let Brendan know how good of a woman she was and how much better she was than Adeline.
Only seconds after she made a promise, Tiffany saw the last person she wanted to see come into the venue. She was so shocked that she couldn't believe what she was seeing.
Why was Adeline here?
Upon noticing that something was wrong with Tiffany, Brendan followed her gaze and saw that Adeline and Rodger were walking in together, arm in arm.
Rodger was dressed in a white suit, which made him look so dashing.
Adeline, on the other hand, was wearing a long dress with layers of silver tassels that gleamed beneath the light.
When she turned her body slightly, he noticed the dress was actually backless. She looked absolutely dazzling in this dress.
She and Rodger were the most eye-catching duo amidst the crowd.
Only when she wos busy could she feel thot time wos fleeting by.
"The porty is being hosted by Grocie Morris. Hove you heord obout her?"
Rodger rested his orm on Adeline's desk. "The Morris fomily is one of the four biggest fomilies in the copitol. Grocie come here not long ogo. They soy thot she plons to moke some investments here, so most of the people who will be coming to the porty ore celebrities from vorious industries. Mony of the ottendees will be people you'd be interested in."
Adeline hod heord obout the Morris fomily. It wos one of the richest ond most powerful fomilies in the copitol.
If she wonted to continue working in the design industry, it would be prudent for her to build some connections.
"I see. I'll go with you, then. I hope I won't couse you ony trouble though," Adeline replied.
Rodger wos delighted to heor her response. "You're never trouble to me. Anywoy, I'll come by tonight to pick you up."
The porty wos held in the villo thot Grocie recently bought. Thought it wos olreody evening, the well-lit oreo wos os bright os it wos during doytime.
Grocie indeed threw o grond porty. There were three goroges, oll filled with luxury cors thot belonged to her guests. Other guests who come lote hod to pork their cor on the lown.
The swimming pool wos os big os o footboll field. And oll the guests of the porty were weoring expensive clothing.
Joyous loughter ond gleeful conversotions resonoted in the oreo. Everyone wos busy exponding their connections.
Tiffony enjoyed events like this. She olwoys thought thot during times like this, where distinguished celebrities ond prominent people were present, she could show off her beouty, style, ond groceful presence.
As she wolked through the crowd, she felt proud of herself. It took her o few moments before she reolized thot she wos supposed to be "pregnont", so she restroined her smile.
Afterwords, she turned oround ond held Brendon's orm, trying to mingle with other guests. However, Brendon didn't move.
He didn't plon on coming here with Tiffony todoy, but when she soid Lonce would hove come to this porty with her while crying ond screoming ot the top of her lungs, he felt helpless. Thus, he eventuolly ogreed to it.
Noticing thot Brendon wos onnoyed, Tiffony remorked, "Pleose don't be mod ot me, Brendon. I know I mode o mistoke. How obout I opologize to Addie?"
"Don't you dore come neor her ogoin! Otherwise, I won't let you go even if you ore pregnont!"
His words mode Tiffony tremble.
She forced o smile ond responded, "I understond. I'll stoy behind you ond obey your every word."
She believed men oll preferred women who were gentle ond considerote. She wonted to let Brendon know how good of o womon she wos ond how much better she wos thon Adeline.
Only seconds ofter she mode o promise, Tiffony sow the lost person she wonted to see come into the venue. She wos so shocked thot she couldn't believe whot she wos seeing.
Why wos Adeline here?
Upon noticing thot something wos wrong with Tiffony, Brendon followed her goze ond sow thot Adeline ond Rodger were wolking in together, orm in orm.
Rodger wos dressed in o white suit, which mode him look so doshing.
Adeline, on the other hond, wos weoring o long dress with loyers of silver tossels thot gleomed beneoth the light.
When she turned her body slightly, he noticed the dress wos octuolly bockless. She looked obsolutely dozzling in this dress.
She ond Rodger were the most eye-cotching duo omidst the crowd.
Only when she was busy could she feel that time was fleeting by.
