"Last night, you, you..." Becky paused a moment to try and collect herself. When she finally calmed down, she continued, "I asked Lisa to fix breakfast for you. Did you want to come by? We could eat together."

Brian looked back at the washroom and answered her, "No, I don't think I can. There are still a lot of things that I need to do. Eat up and don't worry about me, okay?"

He was met with cold silence. Any fool could tell that she wasn't happy.

Brian sighed slightly and went on, "Alright, I'll be there soon."

No sooner had Brian said that, Molly stepped out of the bathroom. After she gave an inadvertent look at Brian, she turned around and walked towards Eric. Molly smiled at him and pointed to the porridge, asking him if he'd had any.

"Of course not." Eric took another bowl of porridge out of the plastic bag as he went on, "I want to have breakfast with you. Better than eating alone. What do you think, Brian?"

Slightly raising his brows, Eric looked at Brian with a triumphant smile on his face. When he looked deep into Brian's eyes, the cheerfulness in his eyes irritated Brian again. He enjoyed needling his cousin, and it showed.

Brian was just weary of it. He shoved the anger he was feeling deep inside and hid it. His face betrayed nothing of what he really felt. He just said in an emotionless tone, "I'll bring Elias here at noon." With that, he turned and left after he looking at Molly briefly.

Eric just watched Brian as his figure receded. His stride reflected arrogance and loneliness. Eric continued smiling, but after the door closed it was a bitter grin, hardly happy. It seemed that he'd gone a bit too far with this.

He'd forgotten the rules of the game himself. He got in too deep, and even fell into it himself. It would take some doing to free himself, and get on Brian's good side again.

Molly didn't notice Eric's reaction, but kept shoveling the porridge into her mouth quietly, head down. She felt the delicious porridge took on a bitt

She might not be able to do anything about Molly, but she could sure play him like a fiddle and get his sympathy. He liked to protect women? Fine, she'd play the weak one. She must make sure that Brian was with her, doing things for her, caring for her, spending time with her.

After he finished they ate breakfast together. And he stuck around, enjoying the morning sunshine and picking a bunch of perfume lilies for her. It was around noon when Tony reminded him that Elias would arrive at the airport soon, he finally said to Becky, "I have an appointment soon. You'll be okay to have lunch alone? Lisa can make whatever you want."

A touch of loss crossed Becky's face after she heard Brian say this, but still she softly nodded. "Yeah. And you need to get some lunch too. You shouldn't forget your lunch no matter how busy you are!"

The overbearing tone made Becky sound like a spoiled girl, but this still amused Brian, judging by his smile. He gently guided her head to his chest and kissed her gently on the forehead. "I know. I'm leaving now. Bye."

Becky nodded and didn't say anything else. She had been wearing a smile on her lips as she felt that Brian got up and walked towards the door. After she heard the voice of the engine faded away, she finally stopped smiling and took out her phone and dialed a number.
