Nicole kept panicking when she looked at the phone.
She did not know why she was so angry either.
It was just a video. It was nothing out of the ordinary.
However, Nicole seemed a little afraid. She was afraid that Clayton would see it. She was afraid that he would misunderstand.
How was she supposed to explain herself if he misunderstood?
Nicole went back to her room and looked at her phone with a restless soul.
One minute, five minutes, ten minutes… Nothing. Did he not see it?
As long as that thought flashed by, Nicole instantly felt much better.
Clayton lost his mood to work the moment he saw the video on Kai’s social media.
Kai’s caption was clearly a joke.
However, in the video, Nicole and the man playing the violin were too harmonious and well-coordinated.
Clayton felt a very strong sense of crisis.
He thought, ’Should I ask her about this video? Will she get angry? Will she think that I’m small-minded?’
Clayton hesitated and felt even more stuffy in his heart.
He had to hurry and finish the matter at hand before going
back to Mediania. Suddenly, his phone rang. He looked at it.
It was from Nicole.
Clayton’s heart suddenly jumped.
He picked it up. His voice was as gentle as ever. ”Hey, Babe. Miss me?”
Nicole blushed when she was teased by those words. She paused. ”I just wanted to ask if you ate alre ady.” Clayton’s eyes were filled with tenderness.
He knew that Nicole must have taken the initiative to call him because she missed him. That must be it!
”I haven’t, because I can’t swallow anything without you by my side.”
Nicole was speechless.
Was it necessary to say that?
She knew that it was fake, but her heart still raced because of it.
They spoke for a while.
Then, they suddenly went quiet.
Neither knew what to continue talking about.
Nicole did not know whether to take the initiative to ask if he had watched the video.
Would she be walking straight into a trap? Finally, Clayton coughed.
“Where did you go today?”
Nicole said, “I accompanied Molly to choose a wedding dress, then I went to Falcon Entertainment with my third brother.”
Clayton paused for a few seconds. “To play the piano?”
In an instant, the two people suddenly fell silent.
Clayton only blurted that out because he could not hold back for a moment. He immediately panicked the moment he spoke.
When he did not hear Nicole’s answer, his heart suddenly felt empty.
Just as Clayton was about to say something to brush the topic away, Nicole suddenly said cautiously.
“You saw it?” Clayton said, “Yeah.”
“Fabian terminated his contract, so we had to support a few newcomers. Dominic planned for them to debut as a group, so I went over to have a look. My third brother was there as well.”
Clayton suddenly laughed. His voice was warm. The emptiness in his heart was suddenly filled again.
It was a very warm and pleasant feeling.
“Are you explaining yourself because you’re afraid that I’ll get jealous?”
Nicole’s thoughts were exposed in an instant. “No…”
“Okay, I get it. But his violin playing doesn’t sound like it has much emotion. It doesn’t match your piano.”
Nicole curled her lips smugly. She sat on the chair and stretched out her legs.
’that’s right, I feel the same way.”
Clayton loosened his tie. His eyes softened at a speed visible to the naked eye.
”Wait for me. I’ll be back soon.”
Nicole paused. “There’s no rush. I’ll be going there soon.”
Clayton froze faintly as a thought flew in his mind.
”You’re coming here?”
Nicole said naturally, ”Mhmm, I have some business.”
Clayton did not continue to ask. He knew in his heart that it was mostly to wrap up Sloan Corporation’s matters.
“Okay, then I’ll wait for you here.”
The assistant knocked on the door outside. ”Mr. Sloan, someone wants to see you.”
