The two walked out side by side. Lance paused when he heard her words.
He nodded slightly.
“Yes, I don’t like it. Don’t be stressed about it and don’t think much about it. After all, I’m still a president. I’m afraid my staff will crush me to death if I commute to and from work with them!”
Yvette’s head was buried very low. She felt like Lance was dissing her!
Forget it. He could do whatever he wanted since he had money.
Lance took her out to get something to eat. He met an acquaintance when paying the bill and went over to greet him.
Yvette was not interested, so she sat in the room and talked to Nicole on the phone.
Nicole asked, “Let’s go shopping tomorrow?”
Yvette said, “No, I’m busy. I have to work.”
Nicole said, “Did you take the wrong meds?”
Yvette said, “Nope. It’s a long story.”
Nicole asked, “Do you lack money?”
In everyone’s eyes, Yvette only got serious about her work when Quimbey Corporation was in trouble or something big happened.
Yvette felt a little ashamed.
“Not for the time being, but I changed my job. I’m Lance’s assistant now.”
It took a long time before Nicole replied. “Oh—” The sound was meaningful.
Yvette’s face turned red.
She did not notice that the room door was being pushed open and thought that Lance had returned.
She hung up the call and stood up, planning to leave.
The other party did not move.
She paused and looked up, then saw Sean Moore.
He looked much more sinister and gloomier. His features looked even colder and darker, and his eyes were bloodshot as he stared at her fiercely.
The emotions in his eyes were extremely complicated.
He just happened to see Lance when he was paying the bill and could not help but think of this woman.
Sean asked for Lance’ s room number and tried his luck.
As a result, he hit the jackpot.
Yvette could now casually go in and out of public places with Lance.
The thought of her going out with another person i n the future made Sean feel like his heart was being stabbed with a knife.
Yvette looked at him and the smile on her face faded.
It completely disappeared.
She had a wary look on her face.
“Why are you here? I didn’t invite you in.”
Sean approached her. “Since when were we so distant?”
Yvette said, “We have nothing to do with each other now. It’s better to keep a distance.”
Sean’s heart sank, and he took a step forward. “Nothing to do with each other? Are you serious?”
His voice trembled slightly.
It was as if those willful days of unbridled bravado which had warmed him for a whole year had disappeared.
The dark and heavy sky pressed down on him, blocking all his light.
“Do you think I’m acting?”
Yvette smiled. Even breaking up was acting? She had her own standing. When dating others,
Yvette would never mention “break up” unless it came down to it.
Sean lowered his tone and suppressed all his emotions.
He held back and looked at her.
“Yvette, stop messing around. Isn’t it enough that I apologized to you?”
The first time he met her, it was in a room in that bar. She was someone who loved to fool around, and someone who could afford to play around.
Sean admitted that he was attracted to this woman at first sight.
She was there with Nicole, and Nicole looked at him with scrutiny and wariness.
Only Yvette smiled at him when she saw him. She was like a beam of light that illuminated the sullen coldness of that room.
Immediately after, they had countless encounters and got closer step by step. He had to admit that he did have ulterior motives.
However, he could not control himself.
He also just wanted to play around, but when his marital status was revealed, he was afraid. Thus, he ran back and asked for a divorce without hesitation.
