"It's good that you didn't tell her." Jordan heaved a deep sigh of relief. He was worried that his troublesome sister had spoiled his plans. If she had talked to Cassie about her encounter with Lily and Nick at his apartment, his plan would have been completely ruined.

After all, according to Cassie, no one other than the three of them knew what exactly had happened in that room that day. He was not there, so it wouldn't make sense if he knew all the details.

"I have some doubts too. Did you send anyone to stalk Nick? If not, how would you know all this?" Cora asked curiously.

Jordan had an answer ready for that question. He remained calm and replied, "I wasn't stalking Nick. But I did send someone to secretly protect Cassie since that accident. I didn't think I would find Nick with another woman in the process. I would say it was sheer luck."

"Oh, I see." Cora looked at Jordan, her eyes full of admiration. "You are such a gentleman. If I were lucky enough to meet a man like you who would treat me so sincerely, I will be the happiest woman in the world. You are so good to Cassie."

Jordan gave her a wide smile and said, "One day, you will meet someone who cherishes and loves you more than anyone else."

"I hope so. By the way, why didn't you want to invite Cassie to lunch?" Cora thought it was a good opportunity for Jordan to make his move to solidify his relationship with Cassie. But Jordan defied her expectations. Why wouldn't he act now? There was an old saying which said, "Strike while the iron is still hot." But Jordan was taking his time. Wasn't this the best time to comfort Cassie and be by her side?

Despite that, Jordan had specifically asked her not to invite Cassie for lunch and had made her keep the information she had about Nick a secret.

Jordan replied, "You really don't understand how women think."

"That's ridiculous! I am a woman too. Are you saying you understand women better than I do? Impossible!" Cora said with a pout.

"I bet you

"How about the newly opened ISA Beauty Club? I have been wanting to go there for a while. Let's go for a body spa tomorrow. We can relax and then talk," Holley said coldly.

"Sounds good. See you tomorrow," Leila agreed without any hesitation.

At ISA Beauty Club

After a basic facial care, Leila and Holley were lying down on the massage bed, completely relaxed. They seldom had such an opportunity to clear their minds, even for just a while.

It was especially true for Leila. She had been exhausted recently. Her shallow face was proof that she often stayed up late; she had more wrinkles around her eyes and on her forehead. If it were not for the thick make-up, she would look like a ghost.

When she got up every morning, she tried her best to avoid looking in the mirror. She didn't want to see herself getting more and more ugly. She would feel inferior sometimes. After all, looks were so important for a woman.

The facial care in the beauty club made her feel much better. She secretly thanked Holley for selecting such a good place.

After a few minutes of relaxation, Holley slowly started a serious conversation, getting directly to the point.

"How are things going between you and Melissa?" Since Holley was applying a facial mask, her words sounded very vague.
