Rufus held Cassandra in his arms as they slowly danced to the music that had long stopped in the garden.

Cassandra didn't want anyone to see them so she tried to wriggle herself free but Rufus wouldn't budge.

"Why? Don't you want me to hold you?"

Rufus raised his eyebrows. He didn't want to let her go because having her in his arms was the best feeling in the world.

"No, I just don't want anyone to see us like this,"

Cassandra said in a low voice with a hint of shyness—something Rufus immediately picked up on as the look on his face softened.

This wasn't news to Rufus—he knew exactly what Cassandra was worried about. She was worried about what people might think of her if they found out that she was seeing Rufus, Lionel's big brother, just days after divorcing Lionel. And Rufus knew all about this from the very start.

Nothing could stand in the way of their love because for Rufus, all that mattered was that he was with her.

Cassandra loved him dearly but she was careful for fear that she might lose him.

How Cassandra wished she could spend every waking moment with Rufus but she had to hold herself back. Even when she'd miss him, she would just send a sly text message to him because she didn't want to disturb him.

She did love him but she was treading on thin ice; she was so careful to not say too much or do too much. This only made Rufus's heart ache.

He took the diamond ring with him everywhere he went. That night, the moon looked especially beautiful. Rufus, as he took in this fine weather and fine music, ran a palm over his pocket as he tried to take the ring out to surprise her.

He wanted to tell her that nothing else mattered—not the people that talked about them or what not—as long as they were together. If they were together, they could surpass anything.

"Cassandra, I want to tell you something,"

Rufus said, clearing his throat and looking at Cassandra softly.

"Yes? What is it?"

Cassandra avoided his gaze.

The repulsive odor of the nearby made people feel dizzy. The sound of those insects buzzing from the hall filled the air.

It was like they were the only two people in the world. To Rufus and Cassandra, no one else was around and it was just the two of them. Cassandra could feel her heart beat quickening in her chest.

But...

"Rufus, hurry up and come in, it's starting!"

Suddenly, the sound of Amanda's high-pitched voice filled their ears. She was calling for Rufus.

"Are you done smoking yet? Hurry up! They're about to announce the spokesman!"

Amanda feigned confusion like she didn't see them so she just turned around and went back in. Meanwhile, Rufus and Cassandra both froze due to the sudden molestation.

After a few moments of silence, Cassandra finally spoke.

"Go ahead, that's business. This is a commercial ball after all,"

Cassandra said, twisting her face into almost a grimace. If she had her way, things wouldn't end up this w

vy was once trying to replace her in the Tang family.

Cassandra could not, for the life of her, understand how a woman could just spend her life leeching onto a man. 'I could never do that, ' Cassandra thought to herself.

Cassandra always had faith in herself and she knew that to get the life she wanted, she had to be strong and independent.

That was why she never accepted any of Rufus's offers to help. Instead, she spent her energy working to help herself.

"Thanks for your concern. Yes, Qin Group is quite busy nowadays,"

Cassandra replied politely then turned around to leave. She never had enough patience to deal with Ivy for very long because she could see how fake Ivy was being to her. And she didn't want to start a fight or anything.

Whenever she recalled how Ivy threw herself down the stairs, Cassandra still felt disgusted. She didn't know what stupid and insane idea this woman had up her sleeve this time. Either way, she didn't want to get involved anymore.

Rufus and Amanda made their way towards the mayor. Amanda wore a beautiful smile on her face.

"Excuse me, mayor. I need to talk to you."

Since Charlie was in excellent terms with the mayor, all of the other government officials respected Amanda.

"What can I do for you, Miss Ke?"

The mayor asked, looking at Amanda intently.

"So here's the thing. Rufus thinks he hasn't stayed in G City long enough to qualify as a spokesman so... he was hoping you could give the title to someone else,"

Amanda said light-heartedly but she made sure her tone was final and conclusive.

The mayor seemed shocked. He looked at Amanda then at Rufus, then stifled a chuckle.

"Miss Ke, although you recommended Mr. Luo and we took that in consideration. Ultimately, the spokesman was still decided by the votes. To be honest, even I don't know whose name is in this envelope,"

the mayor lifted his hand to wave the envelope in front of them, on his face was a kind smile.
