Dorothy had come to check on Colin because she heard that he had come to the room with a woman in his arms.

And Colin answering the bell wearing just a bathrobe, made it hard for Dorothy not to think of anything else. Her discomfort made her clench her fists at her sides.

"I'm good, " replied Colin. "So what brought you here?" Colin firmly stood beside the door. He had no intention of inviting her in.

"Nothing much. Can I wait inside so we could leave together?" Saying so, Dorothy tried to step inside. She really wanted to find out which woman had the guts to seduce her fiance.

Colin understood her intentions. He solidly stood in front of her. "That won't be necessary. I have some other business to deal with. You do not need to wait for me, " he dismissed her.

"What about mom's birthday party tomorrow night?" Dorothy piteously looked at her fiance.

"I'll be there."

She could not think of any other excuse to continue talking to Colin. She could also make out that he was a little irritated, so she decided to leave. But had it been Payne standing in front of her just now, she might have already slapped him. But this man was Colin, tremendously superior than Payne in all aspects.

Dorothy put on a gentle smile. "Okay. I'll leave then. Be careful while driving."

Colin didn't bother answering. He closed the door before she had finished the sentence.

Looking back at the closed door, Dorothy felt wretched for herself. She knew she couldn't dare to be angry even when treated like this.

Although Colin and she had been engaged for three years, he still hung out with different girls. That Maeve, for instance, was one of them. And Dorothy could not complain even about this to him.

Therefore, she desperately waited for the end of the next month, when she would become Mrs. Li and have the right to stave off all these trollops.

As for now, she could only let Colin have his fun. She understood that a girl was always by Colin's side because he was a man of excellence. All the girls wanted to be seen with him.

The moment Sophia stepped out of the bathroom, she was surrounded by Colin's strong arms. He bent down and kissed her red, luscious lips.

She tried to escape, but couldn't. She did not want to do anything as she had just applied medicine on certain parts of her body that still hurt.

Besides, she had soaked in water, which must have inflamed her wounds.

"No..." She grabbed the chance when he stopped to breathe and covered his unbridled lips with her soft hand.

Colin was confused. But he soon understood the problem after Sophia stammered her reason.

However, she couldn't get away from him so easily...

After she brushed her teeth, she quickly put on her clothes when Colin went to the bathroom again.

Just as she was about to leave, the door of the bathroom opened and she heard a loud, "Wait!"

Sophia turned around. "I am meeting a friend for dinner, Colin!" she said in a voice full of exasperation. It was not even 5 yet.

He ignored her words and put on the clothes the manager had brought.

Soon he was fully dressed. "Noting but a dressed-up beast, " Sophia looked at Colin and thought to herself.

Clearing up her mind, Sophia asked, "Is there anything else?"

"Yes." Colin picked up an expensive watch and started wearing it on his wrist. He looked at her and said, "I need you to come with me to the mall nearby to pick a gift."

"A gift? For whom?"

Colin checked to see that the watch was fastened properly and then said, "My future mother-in-law!"

... Sophia's heart ached for a moment when she heard these words from his mouth.

But she hated it when she was easily influenced emotionally.

She put up a frail smile. "Sure. It would be an honor!"

Saying this, she elegantly walked towards the door.

However, her joints had turned white because she was holding her purse so tightly.

Colin was slightly upset when he saw her receding figure. He could hardly believe that she had appeared to laugh when she had heard what he ha

d said.

Ten minutes later.

Colin and Sophia entered the Shangping Shopping Center together. Looking around at the windows, he asked, "What kind of gift should I buy for her?" ...

Sophia was really not interested. She just stared ahead and calmly said, "Whatever she likes."

Suddenly Sophia felt that Colin was no longer by her side. When she turned around, she saw him standing in front of her with no expression whatsoever on his face.

Her crimson lips slightly moved. "What now?" she asked.

"You don't like hanging out with me?" he asked. The anger in Colin's beautiful face was quite conspicuous.

Sophia actually found his behavior to be ridiculous. She laughed, but there was a bitterness hidden in it. "Why don't you ask Dorothy to do this with you?" she asked. For Sophia, What Colin asked her to do felt like an insult.

After all, he knew that she had a feud with the Lian family.

Gradually the smile on her face froze, and she stopped laughing. Then she became angry at the man who still hadn't made a move. "I need to go to the hospital. Will you come with me or should I go alone?"

They had directly come to the mall from the cruise ship to buy the gift. She wondered if Colin ever thought of the pain she went through.

"Keep smiling!" he said. Colin hated it when the one whom he was hanging out with looked unhappy.

"Smile?" Sophia repeated the word. "I wonder if you can smile when your wounds are about to be inflamed!" said Sophia with discontentment in her voice. She walked past Colin and headed towards the exit of the mall.

"Is she really mad? I don't think so, " Colin inwardly thought. Sophia was furious, but sad as well. She felt that she had lost her place in his heart after the divorce.

What she hadn't seen on Colin's face was regret. 'How could I forget that she was still hurt?' Colin thought to himself. He was seized with remorse for his actions.

He dashed out of the building behind her and saw her heading towards the parking lot.

Colin intended to follow her, but suddenly his phone rang. It was Wade. "Mr. Li, there's something you need to know."

"Go ahead, " he said, curious.

"Hentai Mall, the one in downtown, is on fire. Reports have confirmed that seven people have got burnt till now."

Colin frowned. Hentai Mall was a big mall and it belonged to the SL Group. "Do you know the cause of the fire?"

He was sure that the mall was equipped with a functional fire-fighting system since it was located in a populated area.

"They have just called the fire station and are looking for possible causes, " answered Wade.

"I see. I'll be there soon, " he said and disconnected the phone.

When he looked around for Sophia, he could not see her. Assuming that she had left, he started walking towards his own car. He quickly got inside, drove out of the parking area and headed downtown.

When Sophia drove out of the parking lot and passed the mall, she tried to find Colin.

She was sure that Colin would run after her, but he hadn't.

Depressed, she pressed hard on the accelerator and drove towards the hospital.

She finally realized that it was just her fantasy. She had overrated the love he had for her.

By the time, she came out of the hospital, it was already 6. Sophia went to a pet shop before she went to meet Hugh.

She bought a black cat and had it wrapped. She then asked the owner to parcel it to a particular person at a certain place.

At the cruise ship

Sophia found Hugh sitting alone at the bar on the sixth floor. His cold temperament discouraged all the girls who wanted to get close to him.

A woman with heavy makeup was sitting next to his stool. But, when that woman saw Sophia sit next to him, she got up and shot Sophia an angry look.

Sophia carefully looked at Hugh. There was a slight flush on his face. It was evident that he had been drinking.

"Hugh, what happened?" Sophia asked. She ordered a cup of ratafee as she settled down to wait for his answer. She could sense that it would be a long night.
