Not a single word came out from Cassandra's lips. This caused an unbearable silence to fill the air in the room. The smile Rufus had been wearing, got swept away from his face when he looked at Cassandra. But she just kept quiet, appearing to be so dejected.

"Is there something bothering you, Cassandra?"

Rufus asked, thinking that there must be a reason why she seemed to have been laden with anxiety in front of him.

"Rufus, what is your excuse for keeping things from me? Haven't we already made a deal to always be honest with each other?"

Those words Cassandra laid out were much like a frozen sword, driven straight into Rufus's chest, piercing right through his heart.

"What do you mean by that, Cassandra? What are you implying?"

Rufus seemed quite puzzled, as he was under the assumption that he had actually told Cassandra everything already. So, why would she even say that? Surely, there must've been some kind of misunderstanding.

Cassandra's lips twitched a bit, and she let out a faint smile upon hearing this.

She had gone this far already, so for that reason, Rufus should have come clean and straightened things out.

"The qualifications written under your resume weren't real, and you didn't really have any experience working as a senior executive of an overseas company. As it turns out, you're actually the founder of the TY Group, and yet, not once did you ever mention anything about that to me."

It took the best of her to keep herself calm, to keep her voice down, and to keep it from breaking. But no matter how hard she tried, she just couldn't hold it in, her voice was suddenly shaking.

She clenched her fists so tight that her nails were beginning to dig right onto the palms of her hands, to such an extent that they could actually pierce through if she didn't stop. The pain that it caused her, however, was nothing in contrast with how much she had been hurting deep inside, which was eating away at her, so much so that she was getting out of breath.

Upon hearing her saying that, Rufus furrowed his eyebrows intensely.

"Who told you that? And did he ask you for anything?"

He had been keeping a low profile in order to

nst her cheek, making her feel as if she was a turtle in a jar.

Rufus leaned in a little and rested his forehead on hers. It seemed that seeing the look she had on her face was more than enough for him.

He knew her quite well. There was no way she would ever admit defeat unless he displayed his masculinity.

"I hope you can believe me when I say that I never really had the intention to keep anything from you. The reason why I haven't told you anything about it before was because I honestly thought it had nothing to do with the two of us and our relationship."

Instead of teasing her still, Rufus began to explain his side of the story, and as for Cassandra, she just remained frozen in place.

Truth be told, she was actually expecting him to simply brush it off or change the subject in some way only to never talk about it again. That being the case, she had already resigned herself to give up on the idea of pressuring him to spill the beans. So, she was left utterly dumbfounded when he brought it back up himself.

"But then, is there even anything that concerns the two of us?"

Cassandra murmured under her breath, and bowed her head to avoid looking him in the eyes.

She tried to see things the way Rufus did. To him, everything that had been happening was just the flow of nature, and that was about it, nothing more, nothing less. He just tended to brush it off so easily whenever there was something that was bothering him.
