Before Perrin could even manage to fasten his seat belt, Xandria suddenly burst into tears. The troubles in her mind became too much to bear; she couldn't stop crying no matter how hard she tried.

"Hey, what's wrong with you? Didn't you say that you were excited to go to the celebration party? Are those tears of joy from having too much fun or something? Or maybe...are you jealous of the proposal earlier? If that's the case, do you want to get married already? If my memory serves me right, didn't you say that you'll only get married when you're already successful in your career?" Perrin asked a string of questions.

'Hmm... Am I missing something else?' He paused for a moment to think. He tried to recall everything that had happened earlier. Suddenly, he thought of something that might be the reason behind Xandria's tears. But before he could open his mouth to ask her about it, Xandria replied,

"You don't even know what you're talking about. Why would I possibly get jealous of that proposal when I was the one who got proposed to? The only people who would get jealous about all of this are the women who want to be in my shoes, got it? Tomorrow, the whole city...no, the whole world will know that a rich, handsome, and well-known director asked me to marry him. When his countless fans find out that I refused him, I'll undoubtedly get flak for it. Do you know how stressful it is when people tell you what you should've done? To make matters worse, my acting career might come to an end because of something that's not even my fault. I have all these thoughts going through my head, but you're acting like everything's fine. How do you expect me to react to that?"

After all that she had said, Perrin only cared about the first thing he heard. Somewhat upset, he asked, "Tell me, do you regret not saying yes to that man when he proposed to you?"

"Of course not! Are you even listening to me? I just told you that I could lose my dream job even though I've done nothing wrong!" Xandria immediately answered back with even more tears on her face. She felt so suffocated by her helpless situation that she literally had a hard time breathing. To add insult to injury, her boyfriend, who was supposed to be her number one supporter, was not much help at all. He just waited for her response with a dumbfounded look on his face.

There was no sign that she was going to stop, and she was getting worse by the second. Perrin thought that if he didn't get Xandria to calm down soon, something bad might happen to her. With that in mind, he leaned in and gently patted her on the back while saying,

"All right, all right, I'm sorry for asking such a stupid question. Please stop crying, dear. I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to be the one that's sobbing here since someone just tried to take away my future wife. Anyway, I'm grateful to have such a wonderful girlfriend. You're such a kindhearted and thoughtful woman for telling me what happened. I wish I would've known what happened before I came to pick you up. I would've brought you a bucket of fried chicken and some cola."

"Why?" Xandria asked with a puzzled expression on her face. Her voice was a little hoarse from crying so she sounded a bit funny. But at that moment, she felt so tired that she kept quiet in her seat.

"It's pretty late and I'm sure all the jewelry shops are already closed. Since I can't buy you a ring right now, can I just use the ring on top of the cola can as a temporary ring when I propose?"

No matter how absurd that sounded, Perrin's silly question managed to get a response from Xandria. "I don't care what anyone gives me when they propose. What matters to me is that if someone really wants to propose to me, that person has to be doing it from the bottom of their heart. Unfortunately, If you were to say that you wanted to marry me right now, I'll just think that you're messing with me and only doing it to cheer me up."

While Xandria was speaking, she stared at Perrin with eyes full of resentment.

"Do you realize how silly you sound right now? As an actress, you show your face to countless men every day. Because of that, I'm always worried that another man will come along and sweep you off your feet. With that in mind, do you really think that I'm still lying when I say that I want you to marry me? If that isn't enough for you to believe me, just

sked, "Why is it so quiet there? Is Michelle with the baby already?"

"Well, if you want to talk to Michelle, you should've just called her phone!" Ray replied in a slightly peeved tone.

"Hey, don't try to act tough just because Michelle isn't around to call you out. Anyway, I was just calling to check whether she already saw you kissing another woman on TV. Do you realize that you're literally cheating on my sister-in-law? Because of that, I've been thinking about possible ways to punish you. Maybe I can make you kneel for an hour on a wash board or some durian shells? I know you hate durian, so I just bought some a few hours ago," David teased while chuckling on the phone.

When Ray heard David's plan to torture him, his eyes widened in shock. He was absolutely rattled, so he accidentally shouted in response, "What? I can't believe you would even think of that! Didn't you say that you would help me out whenever I needed it? How in the world did you go from that to wanting to torture me?" Ray spoke so fiercely, to the point that he needed to take a second to catch his breath. After that, he continued to wail. "Come on, you know I was just doing my work! I didn't even kiss Xandria seriously!"

Because of Ray's frantic reaction, David almost laughed to death on the phone. When he managed to calm himself down a little bit, he placed the phone on his other ear and replied, "Relax, I was just kidding. Anyway, I didn't call you just to tease you about kissing another woman. I'm here because your TV show just blew up on the internet. Every single person with a mobile phone has seen your scene. Because of this, I thought it would be the best time to try and talk you out of your acting career. Just do business with me so that Michelle doesn't need to see anything else like that in the future."

"If I was smart enough to be a businessman, sure. Unfortunately, I don't have the brain power to calculate numbers all day, so I'll just keep my job as an actor. That being said, if you give me enough money to support me and my family for the rest of our lives, then I'll gladly quit my job. What do you think?" Ray teasingly replied with a smirk on his face.

During the phone call, Ray remembered that he still needed to patch things up with his wife. As soon as David was rendered speechless by his outrageous proposition, he hung up the phone, and then looked for his wife in the house.

Meanwhile, the new DIY skincare set from the HT Group was a humongous success. They managed to occupy two-thirds of the skincare market with just their initial pre-sale. Additionally, their cooperation with the best raw materials manufacturer gave them an edge over the KING Group. With their utmost care and dedication to advertising their product, the HT Group swayed almost all of the customers' attention, affection, and anything else that remained, to their direction in just a blink of an eye.
