Rita was a light drinker. After drinking a little wine, she became unconscious. Looking at the drunk Rita in front of him, Elbert felt a little distressed. He gently carried her to the bed, covered her with a quilt, turned off the light, and quietly walked out. Elbert felt sorry for Rita. After leaving the room, Elbert drank another bottle of red wine and went back to his room to sleep.

Summer mornings always came so early. The blue sky was like a sapphire that had just been washed by water, and the sun like fire made the sky become red.

It was already ten o'clock when Charles woke up after the hangover. He had a headache. Thinking of what happened yesterday, he faintly felt that he had drunk a lot. When Charles saw the clock, he almost jumped off the bed. He was a little suspicious of life. He couldn't believe that he had slept until ten o'clock. So he jumped out of bed and got dressed to go to work. When Mercedes heard the sound of Charles getting up, she pushed the door open and came in to see what was going on.

"Charles, are you awake?" Looking at the anxious look on Charles's face, Mercedes guessed that it must because it was ten o'clock now.

"Mom, why didn't you wake me up? I have to hold a meeting." Charles said while buttoning up.

"No need. I've already asked for leave for you. You don't have to worry. Sexton is in the company. " As she spoke, Mercedes asked the housekeeper to prepare breakfast for Charles.

"Have you asked for leave for me?" Hearing this, Charles felt a little relieved. Charles hesitated for a while and decided to go to the company. Then he said, "I still have to go." Then he began to tidy up his clothes.

"Okay, but you have to eat breakfast first. You look so anxious. Go and wash your face. " Mercedes said deliberately.

After washing his face, Charles went downstairs as soon as possible. When he arrived at the living room, Charles found that Mercedes had prepared the breakfast, so he sat at the table and drank a glass of milk first. Then he picked up the bread, picked up some tomato paste and began to eat it in big gulps. Mercedes wanted to say something but stopped on a second thought, when she saw Charles eating intently. In fact, when Charles came back and got drunk last night, Mercedes was very worried. In her eyes, the rational Charles rarely lost control, let alone drinking. She wanted to ask Sexton, but Sexton didn't say anything.

Mercedes looked at Charles with a troubled look. Charles ate bread and glanced at his mother. So he asked casually, "Mom, don't you eat?"

Interrupted by Charles, Mercedes didn't know what to say, so she said, "I have eaten. Don't you know what time it is now? " Charles didn't say anything.

Mercedes hesitated for a long time and asked tentatively, "Do you remember that Cecelia came here last night?"

"Yes, I do. What's wrong? Mom." Charles still remembered the things

pointed, as if she had chosen the wrong path from the very beginning. Her remaining sanity told her to calm down, not to care about what others said, nor to think about it. Rita clenched her fists and said lightly, "I don't care."

Cecelia took out a bill and threw it to Rita. Then she said disdainfully, "This is two million. If it's not enough, there is still. "

Looking at the money thrown by Cecelia, Rita felt that Cecelia seemed to laugh at her childishness. It would be great if she really did it for money, so that she would have no chance to take it and leave without being humiliated. Looking at the two million dollars on her leg, Rita picked it up quietly, took a look at it and tore it up silently. Cecelia widened her eyes in horror and looked at Rita in disbelief.

At this time, Rita's phone rang. Rita knew that it must be Elbert. So she opened the door decisively, turned around and left.

After a long time, Rita thought that she did not accept any transaction, because in her opinion, many things could not be used to trade. No matter whether she loved someone or not, she did not accept any transaction.

Rita left and went to find Elbert. Elbert ordered a plate of crayfish for her in the restaurant behind the company. When Rita found him, Elbert seemed to have been waiting for her for a long time. After calming herself down, Rita walked up to him with a big smile on her face.

"Sorry to keep you waiting so long." Rita said with a smile.

"It doesn't matter. I can wait for you as long as I want." Elbert said with a bright smile. "You must be hungry after working all morning."

"I'm fine. I won't starve to death." Rita picked up the crayfish and began to eat it. When she was with Elbert, she could always be so relaxed, without thinking about anything else, even if she had just cried.

"I cooked porridge for you and brought some for you." Elbert looked at Rita and said indifferently.
