With the coldness shining in his eyes, Lucian asked coldly, "What about you if I left."

What a touching sentence! Unfortunately, there was no affection in his words, so it sounded more like impatience.

Lucian acted weirdly. A moment ago, that sexy woman said she would see him tonight. Amelia thought that Lucian couldn't wait to see her, but he was still in the office.

"I have nothing to do after work, so I can take a taxi to go back. Besides, you have an appointment. If you are late, she will be angry!" She said in a voice dripping with sarcasm. She looked around and avoided the eye contact with Lucian.

"I smelt jealousy?" After Lucian finished speaking, he sniffed his sleeve.

Amelia was smart this time. She knew clearly that it was a satire.

"Childish!" She picked up her bag, left two words and went out.

Lucian sat on the sofa and smiled happily.

In the elevator, Amelia stared blankly at the changing number, while her back was in a cold sweat.

The elevator was so quiet and Amelia couldn't help thinking of the kiss. And Lucian was standing behind her now.

Last time, Lucian kissed her in front of Fannie and Nicholas. At that time, she was very annoyed and thought that this man was very handsome but abnormal. But today, she felt totally different. Her heart beat faster and she felt restless. Amelia lost her calmness in front of him.

"Here we are." Lucian reminded her coldly.

Amelia quivered and felt humiliated.

She was restless, which made her a laughingstock in the city?

The moment they walked out of the building, Amelia saw that a woman in red was waving at Lucian with a bright and beautiful smile on her face.

She wanted to stay away from Lucian. After all, he was dating with his girlfriend. It would be awkward if she stood beside him.

It was time to get off work, so Amelia stood in front of the building. Other employees looked at her curiously, just like the time she had been this morning. But there was no luxurious car next to her, the pressure in her heart decreased a lot.

"Lucian, I've been waiting for you for half an hour." The moment Lucian approached the woman, the woman warmly embraced him and passionately kissed his face. What a sweet scene.

Amelia pursed her lips and looked away. 'Although Lucian is handsome, he is fickle. Just look at him. I'm sure he will not be my boyfriend, ' she thought.

"What? How could Sasha kiss our CEO in front of Mrs. Amelia! She's going too far! " A female employee complained when she passed by Amelia.

"Keep your voice down. If CEO heard you, you would be fired." Another female colleague tugged at her sleeve and whispered, "Sasha comes from a wealthy family. She has a long relationship with our CEO. If it weren't for his mother, they would have been married."

The female employee deliberately said mysteriously, but her words were clearly heard by Amelia.

Her heart skipped a beat, and she was inexplicably sad.

Her reason of persuading herself just now collapsed in an instant.

Even though they were just acting, she still cared, didn't she?

No wonder Lucian didn't come back last night. They were getting along. Was it true that her identity as his wife was about to be terminated?

She had been looking forward to this moment for a long time, but when it came, she felt a sense of loss.

"What are you thinking about?" Noticing that Amelia didn't follow him but stood on the stairs in a daze. Lucian walked over to her and grabbed her arm, regardless of whether Amelia would be pleased or not. He took her to the front of Sasha Liu and briefly introduced, "Sasha, this is my assistant, Amelia."

"Hello." When Sasha Liu said that, a big smile appeared on her face. Her clean teeth made Amelia think that it was a waste of her not to be the model. Besides, she had a beautiful figure. She looked like a queen.

It was no wonder that Lucian liked her. He was overwhelmed by her charm wherever she stood.

"Hello." Amelia reached out her hand timidly and said in a low voice. She was extremely panic and self abased.

"Lucian, your assistant is very beautiful." Sasha Liu praised, still smiling.

It seemed that Sasha Liu hadn't known the relationship between her and Lucian. If she had known, she wouldn't have been so kind with her.

"Thank you." Amelia was a little embarrassed. 'Didn't Lucian introduce her? It meant that Lucian didn't want to tell Sasha Liu, so she had no reason to stay there and be the third wheel. She took the chance and said, "Mr. Lucian, Ms. Sasha, I'm leaving. Have a good time."

She smiled very sincerely. Before Lucian could speak, she jumped aside like a rabbit.

After crossing the street, Amelia breathed a sigh of relief. But then she began to be depressed.

She sat on the platform and felt distressed.

It turned out that Lucian had someone in his heart. No wonder he was so anxious to ask for a marriage

. He just wanted to escape from his mother's coercion, so that the woman he loved had enough time to return home?

She thought she was used by Lucian, but when she thought of her original intention to agree with his proposal, she felt that she was also taking advantage of him.

If she could realize Sasha's dream of marrying this man, then she must take credit for it.

Amelia was relieved by thinking that way. It was still early, so she called Courtney and made an appointment to have hot pot at the old place. Then she sent a message to Lily and told her that she wouldn't return to the SJ Garden for dinner.

In the evening, when the lights were lit, the busy street was filled with cars and people. Amelia and Courtney were sitting on the street. They each had a cocktail in one hand and a barbecue in the other. They chatted as they ate with relish.

"Amelia, it would be a surprise if you appeared in the front page like this." Seeing that Amelia's mouth was covered with oil and chili paste, Courtney couldn't help laughing at her.

"Yes, the young lady of the Zhang family can have street stalls." Amelia added in an arrogant way.

"Don't worry. The news will definitely be published in the newspaper, and the barbecue shop will be a hit." Courtney talked and let her imagination run wild.

They intended to eat hot pot, but the restaurant was so popular that they had to eat barbecue in the street without making more trouble.

"By the way, is Kent working in the Zhan Group now?" Amelia stayed in the office all day. Moreover, the Zhan Group was so big, it was difficult for her to meet him.

"He went to report yesterday. I heard from him that it was not bad." Courtney lifted the glass of cocktail in her hand and said with a smile, "Let's drink this for the sake of our happy life in the future!"

Happy life... This phrase didn't seem to have much meaning for Amelia.

She might be pessimistic after the death of her mother, so she was not so sad about the betrayal of Jasper.

She didn't ask for much happiness. Maybe she hadn't met someone who wanted to be happy with her.

"Done!" She lifted the bottle, and after a crisp clash, it was her gulping.

Courtney was shocked to see her forthright. She asked, "Are you unhappy, Amelia?"

"I'm not unhappy at all." She wiped the wine stains on her lips with the back of her hand and looked very calm.

"Then why did you drink so fast? When we get back and met with Lucian, I'm sure he'll scold you." She could drink, but he couldn't get herself drunk.

After all, there were many rules in the Zhan family, so Courtney worried that Amelia would be restrained when she returned home.

"We've known each other for so many years. I know you don't like to be restricted by others and I don't know if the Zhan family treats you well. In short, if you're unhappy with anything, please tell me. I can't do anything about it. You can always take shelter from me." Courtney said from the bottom of her heart, looking at Amelia who was red because of alcohol.

"Okay." Amelia choked with sobs and felt a lump in her throat. She suddenly realized that her friends had grown up and she was no longer the cowardly girl ten years ago.

She had to go through it and face it. Only in this way could she grow up.

Amelia was not drunk, so she took a taxi by the roadside. Courtney was worried about her. She walked up to her and held her, "Where is your phone? I'll call Lucian and ask him to pick you up. "

"Please don't!" Amelia stopped her immediately. She paused and said, "He has an important appointment tonight. I'll take a taxi home."

She pinched her palm with her nails to wake herself up.

"You took several bottles of wine when I wasn't looking. How could I feel relieved if you go back alone?" Courtney was still worried about her, and she suddenly came up with an idea. She asked, "How about you stay at my house tonight?"

"I have to go to work tomorrow." Amelia shook her head and insisted on going back.

Although the SJ Garden was not really her home, she wanted to go back now. She had to stay at the villa with Iris' portrait waiting for her.

"A married daughter doesn't belong to her parents anymore. I'm a just a friend!" Seeing that she was unwilling, Courtney didn't force her. After stopping the taxi, she told the driver several words before he left.

Amelia was indeed drunk, but she knew what had happened when she arrived at the door of the SJ Garden. She felt terrible with her stomach churning. Leaning against the door, she was about to vomit but suddenly a hand grabbed her wrist. She was so scared that she immediately raised her head and held back the thing that had choked her stomach. The pain made her throat twitch. She felt hard to breathe.

The tears in her eyes, in the bright white light, were like the dazzling stars reflected on the lake, emitting a pitiful faint light, and so pure.
