As Ivan was buttoning up his sleeves, a pillow came from behind him and hit him in the head. He became shocked and his expression darkened.

Last night, Chris had thrown an ashtray at him and now, Flora was throwing a pillow at him. What did they want from him?

However, he didn't dwell on the thought, and went back to buttoning his sleeves.

Flora felt her body sore all over, making her feel angrier than she was. Suddenly, something occurred to her. The man in front of her was at least a few inches taller than Chris. Moreover, he had a very unique sense of calmness to him which Chris never had.

Upon realizing that, she couldn't help but blurt out, "I'm sorry..."

She didn't know what made her apologize to him. She thought for a while and understood that she was frustrated from her relationship with Chris. They had been together for so many years, yet he had found the most unspeakable way to force her into marrying him. However, she couldn't explain why she slept with another man. Wasn't it Chris who had taken her to the hotel room? Why was there another man in front of her?

The man just stood there quietly, which only brought up more questions in her mind, puzzling her.

Once Ivan was done buttoning his sleeves, he turned to her and said coldly, "I performed well last night."

The sunlight touched his face, outlining his sharp nose, perfect lips and chiseled jaw. Flora almost thought that he was an illusion. She didn't come to her senses until after he left the room, closing the door behind him. His handsome face and sexy voice lingered in her mind.

But then, she thought of what he had just said.

"Performed well?"

Flora repeated his words with a flush on her cheeks. But the very next moment, she felt dispirited and shrunk like a deflated balloon. Her hair was messed up. Flora thought of how despicable Chris was, and couldn't help but cry.

She was a conservative woman. She had thought that he wouldn't take her virginity until they were married, but he broke her heart by drugging her and trying to rape her, which ended up her losing her virginity to a stranger.

What an asshole!

Wiping her tears away, she began to look for her clothes.

However, when she found a shirt, she was shocked. Whose was it? It certainly wasn't hers! Could it be that man's?

Perplexed, she picked it up from the floor.

"The buttons..." she muttered.

Most of the buttons on the shirt had been ripped off.

Her eyes went wide with horror. Was it that man's doing or was it her doing? She wondered and felt ashamed of herself.

"Ah!" Holding her head, she let out a scream. She then sighed and pouted.

The only thing that was on her mind was that she must be shameless to have behaved like that.

At three o'clock in the afternoon, on the 26th floor of the Millennium Building

As he gazed at the pile of documents in front of him, Ivan was lost in thought as memories of the previous night kept replaying in his mind.

That moment, he heard someone knock on the door twice. Then the room was filled with the scent of fresh hot milk. Closing the door behind him, James announced with excitement, "I was passing by a shop when I smelled amazing egg tarts. It was even better than the ones I got from the coffee shop downstairs." He laid out a dozen of delicious egg tarts on the coffee table. He then grabbed one and took a bite, exclaiming, "Oh my God! This is amazing! I've never met anyone who can make egg tarts as delicious as these. Ivan, would you like to try one?"

Ivan's head was still hurting from last night, so he rubbed his temples and replied, "No thanks!"

James knew th

at he didn't have a sweet tooth, so he didn't force him. After he chowed down on two more tarts, he walked over to him.

"Ah!" He noticed a small red patch on his neck and exclaimed after he leaned in and took a closer look. "Is that what I think it is?"

Ivan pushed him away, and went back to reading the document.

"Ivan! You have finally become a man! Well, now, your grandpa can rest in peace without any worries!" James said. He couldn't believe his own eyes and was happy for his friend.

Ivan's grandfather, Greg Gu, was still alive!

Ivan lifted his head and gave him an icy stare.

"All right, fine! I shouldn't have said that and I am sorry," James said grimly. He knew that Ivan was close to his grandfather, who loved him dearly. Scratching his head, he asked, "By the way, how is your grandfather?"

"He has been discharged from the hospital,"

Greg Gu was a strong man. Although he'd had some joint pain, he had never been that seriously ill in his life. But then, two months ago, he had a serious stroke, which had alarmed everyone in the family, including Ivan.

As the thought of his grandfather faded away, Ivan thought of the woman he was with last night.

The previous night had been just as beautiful as any other night in S City. There were small neon lights which hung from the trees, looking like glowing berries. It was winter, but it was never excessively cold in S City.

A man stood by a tree, lighting his last cigarette as a woman approached him. As she came closer, he quickly threw the cigarette onto the ground and put it out.

It was Flora. She looked at the cigarette butt on the ground and frowned. However, she hid her displeasure and greeted him politely, "It's been a while since we met."

The man was Chris. He had been waiting for her to throw herself at him, but her politeness shocked him.

"Aren't you going to come with me?" he asked with a frown.

"Where? L County? I think I've made myself very clear, Chris.

That place won't work for me," she said firmly.

Chris grabbed her by the arm and roared, "Can't you do this for me? Can't you live there for us?"

"Why should I? When you can come to S City for me instead," she muttered, gritting her teeth.

"Why can't you live in L County? I work in a government unit in L County now, and once we get married, I can buy a house for us there. Doesn't that sound nice? Why do you always have to look down upon smaller towns? You can't always expect to live in a big city, right?" Chris questioned. To him, there was nothing wrong with living in a small town. However, he couldn't understand why Flora hated smaller towns. If they both started working in government units, they could easily afford to get married and have kids. Soon, they would also be able to buy a house for themselves. Their life would be better than those of most people in L County.

Did she hate him? Chris had always wondered if she thought lowly of him because of his status. Flora had always wanted to live in a big city where there was always something new to try, places to explore and dreams worth pursuing. She didn't want to live in a small town, leading a small life.

She sneered and pulled her hand away, feeling disappointed. "You're the one who is being adamant!" she roared.

Only two months ago, they had split up and decided that they would never meet each other again. However, a few days ago, Chris called her and told her that he had come to S City, wanting to meet her. Flora thought that he was finally willing to accept to her terms and live there, but she was wrong. Chris had been a disappointment to her one more time.
