Bertram closed his eyes and said indifferently, "I'm not interested."

He never loved that kind of place. He would rather stay in the company than go to that kind of place. He would feel annoyed when he saw those people.

Rolling his eyes, Charles walked over and said, "I said, this is specially prepared for you. What's the meaning of not going there?"

"Charles is right." "Bertram, you can't stay at work all day long. You'd better take a break from time to time. Besides, today's Party is specially prepared for you. You should at least cooperate with us, right?" Leighton aid.

He looked at the men in front of him, as if they were going to tie him up even if they didn't go with them. Bertram sighed, stood up, picked up his coat on the chair and said, "Let's go."

They looked at each other, smiled and followed her out.

Seeing the grand decoration of the house, Bertram couldn't help frowning. Alas, he had no choice. After all, he had such a group of bad friends who always made trouble for him.

As soon as Bertram entered the room, he saw someone he didn't want to see. Angel was wearing a black low cut dress, a dazzling crystal necklace around her neck, and her hair was tied up high. With a goblet in her hand, she walked towards him with a smile.

Why is she here? Bertram looked back at the other four men. The latter all said they didn't know.

When Angel approached him, she said with a smile, "Mr. Jin, I just know that today is your birthday Party. As your secretary for so many years, I think I should come and wish you a happy birthday."

In fact, she kept a smile on her face, but she felt very uncomfortable in her heart. Because he didn't invite her to such an occasion. But it didn't matter. Even so, she still came, and specially prepared a gift for him.

"Thank you." Bertram said indifferently. Although he didn't want to greet his subordinates in such a situation, he still had to pretend.

Angel then put on a sexy smile.

"Bertram, you are back!" At this time, Adele suddenly ran down the stairs with a playful smile.

"I thought you wouldn't come back."

In fact, Bertram didn't want to come back, but he had no choice. It seemed that those people wouldn't come back either.

"Do something childish." Bertram complained to Adele.

Adele was instantly dissatisfied, "what do you mean by 'no childish thing'? This is your birthday, not mine. Who am I doing this for? Why do you blame me?"

Seeing that she was so naughty, Bertram just shook his head and stopped talking.

When Adele saw the men behind him, he quickly ran over, raised a playful smile and said, "You are all here!"

In fact, Adele had known them since childhood. They also treated her as a sister, so Adele would occasionally act like a spoiled child with them.

"Eh? This is... " It was not until now that Adele saw Charles standing beside them and asked curiously.

When Adele saw Charles, he found that he was really handsome, and his eyes were so deep that they seemed to be able to see the depths of a person's heart. She felt a little terrible for a moment, and felt that she withdrew her eyes.

"Well, I will introduce." Carlton stepped forward and said, "This is Charles. He is a good friend of your brother. He also has a Party this time."

"Really?" Hearing that it was a good friend of Bertram, Adele immediately smiled and said, "Hello, I'm Adele. Nice to meet you."

Instead of answering her immediately, Charles stared at her for a long time. When Adele felt uncomfortable again, he raised his usual smile and said, "Hello, Miss Jin."

Not daring to look at him anymore, Adele turned around and walked up to Bertram, saying,

"Bertram, I have a gift for you."

"Oh? What gift? " Bertram smiled.

"I bought it with my sister-in-law a few days ago. I'll get it for you now."

She ran upstairs before Bertram could answer.

When Angel heard Alina's words, a trace of hatred flashed through her eyes, but she hid it well and no one noticed it.

When Bertram heard that Adele went shopping with her, a strange feeling flashed through his heart, but it disappeared before he could catch it.

Adele ran to the bedroom and saw Alina still sitting by the window and looking out.

Alina? She was talking with her sister-in-law just now, but she suddenly heard Bertram's voice, so she immediately ran out. But she didn't expect that her sister-in-law was still standing there motionlessly.

"Adele."

"Alina, why are you still here? The party has begun. "

In fact, Alina knew that, but she didn't want to go down now. There were so many people downstairs and there were such occasions. Even she herself couldn't tell what her relationship with Bertram was.

Therefore, if she could just stay here and not go out, it would be a good thing.

"Adele, I don't want to go downstairs now."

"Why? Adele asked in surprise. In fact, she knew that Bertram didn't have a good relationship with his sister-in-law. That was because Bertram still couldn't let it go. Therefore, she also wanted to take advantage of this banquet to change the relationship between the two of them.

It could also stop Bertram from thinking of the unpleasant past. That was also a good thing.

Therefore, she specially prepared a dress for Alina and put on a beautiful makeup for her. With her careful dressing, she believed that Bertram would still be attracted by her.

"I really don't think it's appropriate for me to attend such an occasion. Adele, you can go downstairs first."

Adele rolled his eyes and said, "Alina, I think you and Bertram are a perfect match!"

Alina looked at her in confusion. She didn't understand why she said that all of a sudden.

"Bertram only knows about work all day long and doesn't like such kind of activities, so he has never been happy since he was a child. And you don't like such occasions either. Don't you think you are a good match?"

Alina didn't know how to answer Adele's question.

Seeing that she lowered her head and didn't say anything, Adele came to her side and said, "Adele, in fact, Bertram is very pitiful. His mother passed away when he was a child, and he lives in such a family. Uncle has been very strict with Bertram since childhood. Bertram doesn't have childhood at all."

Alina listened to Adele quietly. It turned out that his mother had passed away. No wonder he never mentioned it to her.

"In Bertram's heart, his mother's death is his everlasting pain, so he has become like this. In fact, he is very fragile in his heart. The reason why we hold such a party for him is to stop him from being as cold as before."

"Alina, in fact, Bertram just used work to numb his heart. In the past, he really wanted to have a happy and innocent childhood like other children, but that was all extravagant hopes. So, sister in law, although I don't know what you think of Bertram, I know that only you can change him."

"You think too highly of me."

Although Adele had heard so many things about him from Adele just now. To be honest, she was deeply touched, but she could not forget what he had done to her.

They were just nominal couples. She didn't want to have anything to do with him.

"It's not like that, Alina..." Adele was about to say something, but when he saw Alina's expression, he thought he'd better talk to her another day.
