Cassandra's eyes became glassy and the helplessness they depicted made her look like a lost child. Dylon detected her sadness and was quite worried about her.

She was able to comfort and encourage others so that they saw things in a positive way. In spite of this, she had failed to convince herself to embrace life. In a word, standers-by see more than gamesters. When one was in trouble, they found it hard to think with a clear mind.

"You know, you don't have to always be in control of your life. Sometimes things won't go according to your plan, no matter how hard you try. Besides, you are still young and you have a long way to go. There are a lot of things waiting for you. For example, you haven't experienced the beauty of motherhood yet," he said encouragingly. "You will cross the bridge when you get to it. Don't worry, just cheer up!" he added.

Despite his effort to straighten her out, Cassandra was frowning. Clearly, his words couldn't encourage her to see the brighter side.

"What do you want to eat? It's my treat today,"

Dylon suggested with an intention of changing the topic. Few people could resist the temptation of delicious food, and he believed that Cassandra was no exception. Deep down he hoped good food might put her into a better mood.

"The stinky tofu then..." Cassandra replied without paying him any attention.

This answer made Dylon's jaw drop and he looked at her in disbelief.

"Did I hear it right?" he asked after a few seconds. "Did you just say stinky tofu? Only stinky tofu?"

He was now torn between laughing and crying, but Cassandra ignored the surprised expression on his face. Still lost in her thoughts, she nodded her head vigorously.

"Yes, you heard me. And not just any stinky tofu, I will name the place,"

she announced, pointing ahead and directing him to turn the wheel with an air of seriousness. By now Dylon had figured out she wasn't joking.

'Alright, ' he thought, driving in the direction provided by Cassandra, all the way to a snack street.

It was not easy to find a place to park his car around the area. And when he finally found a spot, Dylon found it difficult to swing a cat in the street.

It was really crowded with people and all kinds of food stands that kept producing swathes of smoke. Dylon was stunned by what he saw and still found it hard to believe he had agreed to come to such a place. 'What a sacrifice, well...what an honor it is to repay her!' he thought with a smile.

Cassandra, on the other hand, felt quite at ease over here. She seemed to know this place very well and seemed in control. Looking behind, she gestured him to follow her.

The way she waved at him was cute and it filled Dylon with relief. At least for the time being she wasn't worried or sad. He felt a victorious feeling surge in his heart for being successful in cheering her up. 'Alright, alright, I have finally done it, ' he thought secretly. As long as his friend was happy, he was willing to do anything. He realized he was willing to like this place for her.

Cassandra seemed to be in a good mood now. As she kept walking, she watched out for the crowd yet it was unavoidable to bump into others in this bustling street. After several close calls, Dylon thought it was necessary to look out for her. In order to protect her, he reached out and put his hands on her shoulders.

Feeling his hands on her shoulders, Cassandra turned back and gave him a grateful smile. It was so bright that it looked like a streak of sunshine on a cold winter morning. It twinkled like stars as she looked into Dylon's eyes.

'Well, it's not that bad since she is still able to smile like that, ' he breathed a sigh of relief.

However, this smile and the way Dylon treated Cassandra were truly eyesores for Rufus, who had been following them. His face darkened and started manifesting a murderous look.

'How could she smile so sweetly at that man? A few moments ago, she was depressed. How did he manage to change her mood so easily?' Rufus wondered wi

ed Joel squirm on the floor in agony.

'Whoever this man is, he has great skills and succeeded in causing harm without any effort.' Seeing Rufus's nonchalant look, Dylon shuddered a little. 'How did he manage to do that?' he wondered.

Slowly, Dylon tried to get a good look of Rufus. He realized Rufus had perfectly-shaped eyebrows and a sharp nose. But this extremely handsome face was devoid of any expression. It seemed people had a tough time reading him since he was good at hiding his emotions.

'Wait a minute... Isn't he Rufus Luo, the current CEO of the Tang Group?' it suddenly dawned upon Dylon. After he figured that out, he remembered seeing his picture on the same magazine where he had discovered Cassandra. His photographic memory could guarantee that it was this same man.

"Nice to meet you, Mr. Luo. Excellent?Kunfu!"

Dylon praised sincerely, extending his hand to Rufus with admiration. However, Rufus passed a quick glance at his hand but didn't bother to shake it.

This embarrassed Dylon a lot. For a split second, he didn't know what to do. 'Should I insist or should I take my hand back?' he asked himself. In the end, he could only withdraw his hand and scratch his head. Rufus seemed least bothered about Dylon, and his focus was on Cassandra.

Fortunately, Dylon had a pleasant personality and did not take Rufus's indifferent attitude to heart.

Rufus then summoned his men to take Joel away. Before they left, he advised the men what to do with him.

"Warn him to be careful before he speaks. Don't let him say things that are better left unsaid!"

After he was done, his focus was back on Cassandra. There was still a grim look on his face.

"You are so lucky today," he said grumpily. "You might have only alerted the enemy if I was not here to help."

Somehow his words annoyed Dylon instead of Cassandra. 'How can you be so cocky? I was about to grab him and would have done it even if you hadn't come! I would be the hero if it weren't for you!'

Dylon's mind screamed but he bit his tongue and decided to stay silent. There was something scary about Rufus's gaze. It contained a cold and distant look.

The man standing in front of him was incredibly calm and aloof, to the extent that it made people terrified.

Seeing Joel being taken away, Cassandra hastened to follow, but was stopped by Rufus at once.

"There's no need. Our company will handle it. You don't have to get involved anymore," he ordered.

The fact that Joel had once made advances on Cassandra infuriated him. He couldn't let Joel ever look at her with his dirty eyes.

This woman was his and his alone! No other man had the rights to lay a finger on her.
