Vanessa couldn't say a word and didn't know what to say. She just smiled awkwardly.

Terence drove the car carefully, pursing his lips and saying nothing. Vanessa couldn't help but be infatuated with Terence's side face. She was the least immune to serious men.

"Have you seen enough?" The car suddenly stopped at a red light. Terence turned to look at Vanessa and asked indifferently.

Vanessa quickly moved her head away, and her eyes began to drift away. In a daze, Terence's envious face appeared in front of Vanessa.

The strange atmosphere between the two people lingered, which Terence enjoyed. He felt that only in this way could Vanessa sit beside him like a normal woman, instead of chasing after Terence who always shouted to have a baby with him.

During this week's business trip, Terence always thought of this woman inadvertently. He couldn't help but even don't understand why. Terence saw an evening dress in the shopping mall and bought it for Vanessa according to her size. As soon as he returned to Y City, the car drove to her home subconsciously. Terence didn't like the feeling of being controlled, but the joy in his heart made him a little confused.

Terence just did things according to his heart. He had always been like this. Just like two years ago, when he left the Ji Clan willfully, he only did what made him feel comfortable, and rarely paid attention to other people's feelings. For example, he suddenly called Vanessa out of the house. Fortunately, Vanessa was free. If she happened to be in trouble, Terence would not allow Vanessa to refuse his appointment. That was such a capricious man.

"Here we are. Get off the car." Terence parked the car and said to Vanessa who was sitting next to him.

Vanessa looked out of the window and found that this was the hotel that Marcia had lied to her last time? Vanessa hesitated for a while. After all, once bitten by a snake, she would be afraid of the well rope for ten years. What happened last time was still vivid in Vanessa's mind, and the pain of being betrayed by her 'so-called' friend seemed to be faintly overflowing in Vanessa's heart.

Seeing Vanessa's hesitation, Terence frowned and asked, "What's wrong?"

Vanessa shook her head. "Mr. Terence, what do you want me to do here?"

"Change your clothes. You have to go with me to a business party later." Terence asked naturally, not noticing anything wrong with Vanessa.

Vanessa's heart sank. Didn't Marcia rely on this excuse at that time? Vanessa was confident that in her heart, Terence was not as good as Marcia thought at that time. For Terence, he probably just wanted to get rid of Vanessa as soon as possible.

So Vanessa spoke out her thoughts silently, "Mr. Terence, last time, Marcia also tricked me into coming here. I..."

Before Vanessa could finish her words, Terence cast a sharp glance at Vanessa. He looked as if Vanessa was an idiot.

Vanessa immediately stopped talking. After thinking for a while, she agreed. As a CEO, he wouldn't use to threaten her, so Vanessa got off the car with relief.

They walked to the same floor, but they were not in the same dressing room. As soon as they entered the room, a larger makeup team surrounded them. Terence had found a place to sit and watched Vanessa doing makeup there... It seemed that she was baptized by the public.

After more than an hour, Vanessa finally finished her makeup and hair. Terence came over and put his hand on Vanessa's shoulder. He looked down at Vanessa in the mirror and looked at her. "Not bad."

Terence said softly. His warm breath tossed around Vanessa's ear, and in an instant, Vanessa's ears turned red. Looking at the handsome man in the mirror and herself with heavy makeup, Vanessa suddenly felt that they were a perfect match.

"Come with me." Terence took Vanessa's hand to the dressing room and opened the curtain. Vanessa saw the evening dress hanging on the wall. With the bright red as the bottom, the designer's astonishing skills could be seen clearly no matter in the tailoring process or details embellishment. A certain black feathered dress hat as a foil added the greatest light to the dress.

"Do you like it?" Terence whispered in Vanessa's ear, just like the most affectionate greeting between lovers, which made Vanessa think that her husband was Terence.

"This is... For me? " Vanessa pointed at the dress and asked. Since she was a child, she seldom wore dresses because she had to work when she was in the welfare house. After leaving the welfare house, it became a habit for Vanessa. She even felt that the dress was not what she should wear.

Every girl had a princess dream, in which they wore beautiful evening dresses and went to the prince's party. This was the best situation Vanessa had ever seen.

If Terence were a prince, but Vanessa was not a princess, maybe she would not even have the honor to be the last Cinderella to be the princess.

Terence nodded slightly. His usual cold face suddenly smiled and said gently, "I bought it for you. I think it suits you."

Vanessa then dared to step forward and carefully look at the dress, but she didn't dare to touch it.

"Try it." Said Terence. He believed in his own judgment.

Vanessa gritted her teeth, took off the clothes and walked into the fitting room.

The moment Vanessa came out of the fitting room, she felt that Terence, who had changed into a tuxedo in front of her, was the prince, and Vanessa had taken a big step forward towards the princess's expectation.

With a smile on his face, Terence watched Vanessa walking towards him with bright eyes. Her perfect figure was shown in the nearly tailor-made dress. It seemed that Terence had a good taste. Thinking of this, Terence walked to Vanessa and put his arms around Vanessa's waist.

"Follow me later. Don't run around alone." Terence reminded Vanessa seriously.

At this moment, Vanessa only felt her heart bouncing wildly. She actually had the mentality of a young girl. The fantasy of the princess's dream gradually became clear, and it continued to burn into desire. Vanessa gently nodded and said, "OK."

Terence held Vanessa in his arms and walk to the hotel. At this moment, the magnificent hotel was like a palace in Vanessa's eyes. Different from the panic she had experienced last time, this time it was full of expectation and surprise. Vanessa knew that these feelings were given by Terence beside her. Although Terence didn't seem to say anything, this feeling was really strange. Vanessa had to admit that she only felt at ease when she was with him.

If the whole world collapsed, and Terence wouldn't leave her at ease. Vanessa didn't know why she was so confident, but at this moment, she thought so.

As soon as they entered, many bosses came up to greet Terence. Of course, Vanessa was not familiar with them.

Terence skillfully dealt with these bosses, and the champagne in his hand was empty and full. Vanessa looked at the man standing in front of her, who used to be arrogant and thought that they would never know each other. Vanessa was even a little worried that Terence would get drunk.

Tonight's party was like a dream made by Terence for Vanessa. In her dream, there were wine, cakes, and many aristocrats dancing.

After the dinner, Terence drank one cup after another, and the people around him also dispersed a lot. Then Terence looked at Vanessa and found that she stood quietly next to him, looking very obedient. He immediately wanted to tease her.

"Why are you so obedient? Don't say a word. " Terence asked with a smile. He seemed to be in a good mood.

Vanessa lowered her head slightly and said, "I don't dare to disturb you." Terence's breath was almost full of the smell of alcohol, which made Vanessa's eyes a little drunk. She frowned and said, "Mr. Terence, don't drink too much. It's not good for your health." In fact, Vanessa wanted to say that if Terence was drunk, they couldn't go home!

Terence was not drunk. It took time for the wine to be served. Terence suddenly held Vanessa's hand and took her to the sofa beside them. The two sat down.

Vanessa then began to look around and found that she had attracted the resentful eyes of many beautiful women. Yes, among these bosses, Terence was a young talent, and also the ideal son-in-law of most bosses. All the ladies and noble clans wanted to be a branch of the Ji Family.

Terence's eyes fell on the center of the dancing floor, where a gorgeous woman was dancing tango with a man. A group of people were clapping around, and the dance was really good.

Vanessa asked, "Do you like this kind of dance?"

Terence shook his head, "No."

Seeing that Terence was staring at them, Vanessa immediately thought of another reason. "Do you have a crush on that girl?" There was a hint of jealousy in Vanessa's tone that she didn't know and could be sensed by normal people.

Hearing this, Terence turned around and looked at Vanessa. A few words seemed to flash through his eyes... Idiot! What was in Vanessa's mind every day!

Seeing that Terence didn't say anything, Vanessa thought he acquiesced. Vanessa said in a fit of pique, "You must like her. Otherwise, why are you so focused on her?"

Terence leaned against the sofa and rubbed his eyebrows. Vanessa noticed that every time he didn't want to speak or was very tired, he would act subconsciously. Vanessa suddenly felt that her words were a little abrupt, and there was something wrong with her tone.

Vanessa looked away awkwardly and didn't dare to look at Terence.

Terence rested his eyes for a while and said, "I'm thinking..." Taking a look at Vanessa, he continued, "I'm wondering if you want to dance."

Vanessa looked at Terence blankly. She didn't know how to dance, so she refused in a hurry, "I don't want to dance at all."

Terence nodded helplessly and said, "No one beside me couldn't dance. I'll teach you when I'm free."

Vanessa was so shocked that her brain was in a mess. Vanessa could learn by herself, but Terence said he would teach her... Was Terence going to lose her life? Or did he want to kill her directly? Seeing Terence's expression of "You can't say no", Vanessa could only ask, "Why do I have to know dancing?"

Terence glanced at the women who looked at him like wolves and tigers from time to time and said, "Because of them, I don't like to deal with these people. If someone comes to dance with me, I can say that I have a partner."

Vanessa nodded with some understanding. After Terence finished speaking, a young lady walked towards them with a glass of champagne in her hand.
