"Move in with me!" Bella said straightforwardly.

"Move in with you? Me?" Peter thought hard about it and was confused at her statement. "I don't think that is a good idea," he continued.

"There's no need for you to think about it too much. I heard about what happened to you yesterday. It must be Alfred who has given you troubles. He is a jerk, but he has power and money. If you move in with me, you will be safer,"

Bella said.

She had asked Peter to come see her after she was informed of what had happened last night.

Bella knew Alfred well. She knew that he would get what he wanted by hook or by crook. Now that he was bent on making Peter suffer, he would not stop.

"If that's what you're worried about, then calm down. Miss Song, I don't take Alfred seriously. If he dares show his face to me, I will surely beat him up! Don't worry about me. But I am afraid that he will take his revenge on you,"

Peter said that proudly, feeling a bit moved by Bella's words. He did not expect that the moody devil cared about him.

"Is that so?" Bella pursed her lips and said scornfully, "Although you've cured James' wife, it is not possible for him to always do you favors without hesitation, or even have your back. Don't be that naive."

Bella apparently knew everything that had happened to Peter. If Alfred could investigate Peter, so could she.

Without any pause, Bella spoke again angrily, "And, you've experienced so much yesterday. Why didn't you call me for help? Do you hate me that much?"

Her words were more like a complaint. By her tone, it was like that Peter had betrayed her.

"No, of course not. The matter was solved anyway, so I did not want to bother you any more. And... I am not relying on Mr. Xie. I just don't care what Alfred is plotting against me,"

Peter said that in a tone with a tinge of innocence and depression.

This moody beauty had suddenly turned hostile and started to complain. Peter was not used to that.

"You are right. You have fighting skills and excellent medical know-how. Perhaps, you've got more than I thought. After all, I also did not expect that you had the ability to flirt well with women. You've just worked here for several days, but you've already hit on the receptionists,"

Bella said with jealousy. It sounded like she had been betrayed by Peter.

"I wasn't hitting on them! We are just colleagues, and we just had dinner together. Nothing special about it."

Peter was a little bit fretted. He worried that if Bella went nuts, she would fire Lisa and Shelly. If so, he couldn't do anything about it.

"Take it easy. I won't vent my anger on your girls." Bella rolled her eyes and said in an even poorer tone, "Peter, do you hate me?"

Bella was really curious of Peter. He had mastered great martial arts techniques and professional medical skills. And, he had already been acquainted to James, the mayor of Golden City, within the short time he was living here. Plus, he did not take Alfred, a Golden City celebrity, seriously at all. Peter was really a mysterious man.

If Bella had not figured out that Peter got the job in Silverland Group by coincidence, she would suspect his intentions of working under her.

"No, I don't hate you at all. I like you,

from the bottom of my heart," Peter said hurriedly. He found it so hard to talk with Bella.

"Really? Peter, I think the job of a security guard is far beneath you. I will put you in a new position," said Bella who seemed satisfied with Peter's words. She blinked her beautiful eyes and smiled.

"There's no need for that. I'm satisfied with my current job." Peter shook his head. After all, he should not receive a reward without working for it.

"You just don't want to leave your little beauties in the reception desk, right?" Bella pursed up her lips and said in coquetry, "Okay, I respect your choice. However, from now on, you are not just a security guard. You are my private driver and bodyguard. You should be at my beck and call 24 hours a day."

Her words were so arrogant!

Peter had no other choice but to nod. "Okay."

"Well, it's settled now. Go to work. And be careful. If Alfred causes any trouble, remember to call me at once."

Bella suddenly stood up and walked toward Peter. She, then, acted like a real girlfriend and fixed the collar of Peter's uniform.

She did it with a charming smile, so nice and so seductive.

If anyone else in Silverland Group saw the scene, they would not believe their eyes. This picture was the last thing they would ever think of.

"Fine!" Peter felt so embarrassed. He quickly nodded and darted out of the room.

Bella smiled at Peter like a beautiful fox when she saw him running away.

"Hmm... All the other men want to chase me, but you don't take me seriously. Peter, you're acting like you're immune to my charms. Just wait! No matter how cold-hearted you are, I will let you throw yourself at my feet someday!"

Peter was sweating as he got out of the president's office. He would rather fight with someone else than confront Bella, the moody devil.

Heedless of Clair, Peter rushed to the elevator and soon arrived at the first floor.

He feared that Bella would suddenly call him back.

Peter was overthinking because Bella did not ask for him the whole day.

Shelly and Lisa finally showed their smiles at Peter after he tried so hard to coax them.

Peter told to himself that women were all like that, moody and so difficult to flatter.

Peter got changed when it was time to get off work. He ran out of the door as fast as he could.

He wanted to follow Elaine to figure out what had happened to her.

Elaine got off work at six and took the metro home.

Peter followed her discreetly in a safe distance.

Elaine seemed absent-minded, worried, helpless, regretful, and miserable. Peter could see that she was in a troubled mood. He was sure that Elaine was going through a tricky situation.

About forty minutes later, Peter followed Elaine to a nice residential area.

When Elaine went near a building, she suddenly stopped and turned back in panic as if she had seen a ghost.

Startled, Peter dodged aside immediately to avoid getting seen by her. A man's voice erupted loudly, "You bitch, how dare you run away! Stop right now!"

An extremely lean man suddenly ran out and seized Elaine's arms. He pulled her back, scolding her, "You bitch, you can run, but you can't hide! You hadn't been home for several days. Tell me if you are cheating on me!"
