The desk shuddered as a phone's ringtone for an incoming text message rang out. Cassandra, who was buried in her work, stared at the phone for a split-second, sighed, and then picked it up in a fluid motion. It was Stella.

She unlocked it with her fingerprint and read the message, "Hi, honey. It's a bright and lovely day. I've got a date with yoga!"

The text drew a faint smile from Cassandra. Stella was such an optimistic and not to mention, energetic person. Cassandra felt drawn to her, like she was this huge magnet. She just couldn't control herself with Stella, and wanted to approach her and befriend her.

Having such a cheery friend was like bathing under the sun on warm winter afternoon. It was comfortable as hell.

Cassandra glanced at the desk clock and saw that it was time to get off work, but she was still double checking the design layouts meticulously. She wanted to make sure all her outputs were topnotch quality when she turned them over to the clients.

After a couple of hours, she was done. She felt relief wash over her as she yawned and stretched her tired bones.

When she was about to leave, her phone rang. Cassandra's eyes lit up. She answered the call and heard a familiar baritone from the other end of the line.

"I know you haven't eaten yet since you're probably on overtime. Meet me at the parking lot. I'll treat you to dinner."

It was Rufus, as Cassandra had expected. He was the only senior executive who would work overtime in the Tang Group.

"It's really late. I just want to go home and get some rest."

She was excited, but she thought it was better to politely refuse.

Rufus seemed to ignore this. He only sounded more determined.

"I will see you in a couple of minutes."

Bossy as always, this was Rufus. He just went on ahead and hung up before Cassandra could say anything.

The continuous beep from the other end of the line startled Cassandra. She put down the phone, caught in a dilemma whether to meet Rufus or not. Then her stomach grumbled like a dog about to bite.

'Calm down, Cassandra. It's just two people eating food.' Cassandra repeated to herself, biting her lip.

A few minutes later, in the Tang Group parking complex, Cassandra saw Rufus beckoning to her. He was sitting comfortable in the driver's seat of a matte black Rolls-Royce.

"Well, where are we going to get some food?"

She slid into the car as she asked Rufus, her cheeks flushed.

Rufus just smiled at her and started the engine. The car roared to life.

"You'll know when we get there," he replied in a mysterious tone.

If it had the approval of Rufus, the restaurant had to be grand and beautiful, and the dishes had to be world-class quality. Neither of these two elements were dispensable when it came to dining for Rufus.

It was given that these restaurants had exorbitant prices.

When they arrived, Cassandra took a gander at the place. It was grand as expected.

But the place wasn't what surprised her the most, it was the fact that they were the only two guests at the restaurant. Rufus booked the whole joint! Mellow piano music echoed through the high ceiling. It did good to ease Cassandra's growing anxiety.

The luxurious dinner made Cassandra feel like she was in a vivid dream. Rufus and her were having a candlelight dinner. The piano, the wine, and most importantly, the devilishly handsome man

ld ever shoot number 10. This man must be the luckiest son of a bitch in the world.

Realizing that she couldn't get the bear, Cassandra got upset. She quickly lost interest, grabbed Rufus's hand, and started to walk away.

However, Rufus had other plans. He wasn't about to leave like that. He took out a one-hundred bill from his pocket and handed it to the vendor.

He was too determined to win the bear for Cassandra. The vendor greedily took the money and gave him even more bullets.

"This must be your lucky night, sir. Try it one more time!"

Rufus spared him a glance and took only one bullet.

With one hand, he shot the number 10 again!

Cassandra's mouth was agape again. She felt like an idiot compared to Rufus. To think he could do it again, with just one hand, no less! Rufus noticed Cassandra's surprised face and burst into laughter.

"Go get your bear."

The vendor was dumbstruck. He handed the bear to Cassandra reluctantly, grumbling as he went. The bear was as tall as Cassandra, but both of them looked cute.

When she finally hugged the bear, Cassandra seemed to wake up. It finally sunk in. Rufus just shot the small circle, twice!

"How… How did you do that?"

Cassandra wondered as she looked at Rufus intently. She just couldn't close her mouth.

Rufus glanced at Cassandra, and said in a passive tone, "I just got lucky, I guess."

Well…that was the only possible explanation. It had to be just luck.

The vendor sighed deeply, clearly defeated. Cassandra felt sorry for the guy. There was nothing she could do though, since he met Rufus, who was apparently a skilled marksman.

She hugged the bear tightly and buried her face in the soft fur.

Rufus couldn't help but smirk at the sight. He was happy as long as Cassandra was. He didn't just get lucky though. In fact, he had been trained at marksmanship for a number of years. That was why he was able to hit such a small target easily.

Rufus didn't want to show off his skill in public, but he wanted to help Cassandra get what she wanted. He wanted to see her smile.

Anyway, Cassandra just accepted the fact that he was just extremely lucky.

Beaming, Cassandra looked to the sky, huge bear still in her embrace.

"Look! A Ferris wheel!"
