Angela didn't like Daisy's suggestion of returning to C Country. If Arvin wasn't here, she would have definitely returned home. But now she cared about nothing else but Arvin. If she went back home, she wouldn't be able to see Arvin anymore. She didn't want that.

So she put on a big smile and said, "Of course, Mom. I will come back but, when I get bored."

"You only care about playing around, Angela, " Daisy said in an exasperated voice. "I heard that you are working in the Research and Development department. You must watch out, alright?"

I know, Mom. There are other people responsible for handling the dangerous chemicals." Angela wondered if Arvin had asked the staff to keep an eye on her because every time she tried to handle any hazardous chemicals, she would find herself surrounded by multiple people to help her.

"Well then, Angela, Mom wants to ask you something, " said Daisy, stopping and grabbing Angela's hands. She looked at her daughter carefully and was shocked by what she saw. Angela had changed. In fact, she had changed a lot. How could Angela change so much? Daisy had this feeling when she saw Angela for the first time that day. But, she was not sure what had caused the change. She felt confident that Angela seemed... more mature?

Angela was looking good. She had ruddy cheeks and bright eyes. In short, Angela looked more beautiful than before!

Was she overthinking or was it just because she hadn't seen Angela for long?

"Yes, Mom? What's wrong?" Angela asked, breaking into her thoughts.

Daisy held back her own thoughts and looked at Angela, "Do you love Arvin?"

Hearing Arvin's name, Angela immediately blushed again. She released Daisy's hands. "Mom, why did you ask that?" she said turning away, eager to hide her burning face from her mother.

Oh my gosh! How did mom know? Is it so obvious?

"Angela honey, don't run away." Daisy hadn't expected Angela would not answer her question. Seeing her turn away, she immediately asked her to stop.

"No, I don't. And don't ask me again." Angela said turning back to face her mother. But, she could not meet her mother's eyes.

... "Ok, Ok, I won't ask. But tell me, why did you act so excitedly?" Angela's reaction had convinced Daisy that she loved Arvin very much.

Angela was around 24 years old, and she was in love!

Her daughter had definitely grown up!

Knowing that Angela was shy, Daisy didn't mention Arvin again.

When it was time for lunch, Angela was supposed to take her mother in her car, but Sven didn't allow her to. He asked her to come with him in Arvin's car. All the others traveled separately.

Angela sat alone in the backseat, listening to Sven and Arvin's conversation and fiddling with her phone.

Seeing Angela so quiet, Sven felt upset. It was not Angela's nature to be so silent!

When they arrived at the restaurant, Angela noticed that only the Gu and Si families were present for lunch.

This cheered her up a bit.

Lulu was also there. She quickly started an intimate conversation with Angela.

When Daisy saw that Angela seemed to have a good relationship with Lulu, she was relieved. She didn't have to worry about leaving Angela alone at J City.

"Angela, why haven't you visited Arvin recently?" asked Lulu. Teresa hadn't told Lulu about what had happened between Nita and Arvin.

Angela gestured her to be silent. She then leaned over and asked in a whisper, "Didn't he plan to sell the house? Since it no longer has a research lab, I should stop going there."

"What! He sold the house? Why didn't he tell me about it?" Lulu was first shocked and then confused. She looked at Arvin who was standing not far away and asked, "Arvin, are you planning to sell Shengfeng Mansion? And what about the research lab?"

Arvin gave Lulu the coldest stare she had ever seen. She shrank her neck in embarrassment and decided to keep her mouth shut. Why did Arvin stare at her like that? Did she speak loudly?

Teresa was also taken aback. She looked at Arvin in puzzlement. "Arvin, why do you want to sell Shengfeng Mansion? Aren't you comfortable there? And why such a sudden decision? How about the houses at Oujing Apartment and Jianqiao Garden?"

...

Angela was baffled. Didn't anyone in the Gu Family know that Arvin was going to sell the house?

Sven, who was sitting beside Arvin, also felt bewildered. "Didn't you just invite me to Shengfeng Mansion last night? You did not tell me then that you were planning to sell it."

Sven had refused Arvin's offer to visit Shengfeng Mansion last night. He came to J City a lot and besides, he had bought his own apartment here.

Kent was also perplexed. "Dr. Gu, have you told me to handle it? How come I do not remember anything about it either?" he asked passing on the menu.

...

Seeing the confusion the Gu Family was facing, Angela understood what had happened.

She felt a pain stirring in the pit of her stomach. Her breathing became rapid and she turned pale.

She heard Arvin's reply, "Yes, I plan to sell it but have been too busy to handle it."

Would his answer make Angela satisfied?

But Arvin was wrong. Angela had totally misunderstood his intention.

She remained silent and stirred her juice. Her reaction made Arvin realize that he had made a big mistake.

Though the atmosphere at the table seemed genial, if anyone paid attention, they would notice that there's something unusual in the conversation between Angela and Lulu.

Angela muttered only modal particles like ''um", "uh" or "ok" or just nodded her head in response to everything Lulu said. She refused to say anything else.

Arvin couldn't sit still seeing Angela behave like that. He stood up and walked out of the restaurant.

Not long after Arvin left, Angela's phone buzzed. Arvin's name flashed on the screen, but she didn't pick it up. She was in a trance.

Only after Lulu patted her arm, indicating the ringing phone, did she come out of her reverie. She picked up the phone and answered his call.

"Come out, " Arvin said.

Angela didn't say anything.

"Angela, please." He was calling her name.

Why was he calling her? Didn't he get bored of her? So he tried to drive her away from his house? Then why was he asking her to come out now?

Angela thought about it and said only two words to Arvin, "I won't!" Then she disconnected the call without waiting for his reply.

A piece of lamb chop was placed in Angela's plate. When she raised her head, she noticed Daisy watching her with concern. "Angela, you didn't seem happy. Whose call was it?"

Daisy's question diverted everybody's attention to her.

Angela didn't want others to worry about her, so she quickly put on a smile. "Nothing, Mom, " she tried to assure Daisy.

"Does the food not agree with your stomach, Honey?" Teresa also sensed that Angela didn't look well.

"No, it is fine..." Before she could finish the sentence, her phone rang again.

Angela stole a glance at it. It was Arvin again. She quickly disconnected the call.

"Why didn't you answer that?" Daisy was sure that Angela was behaving strangely.

"It was from the advertisement company. I'm fine. Really. Uncle and Aunt, let's enjoy the lunch!" Having reassured everybody, Angela casually slipped the phone in her pocket.

Several minutes later, Arvin walked in. He looked gloomy.

When he sat down, he secretly looked at Angela. Seeing the pain in her face, he sighed in silence.

"Pick up your glass, Angela and make a toast to Dr. Gu with me, " Daisy said during the lunch.
