“Can you wait a moment?” Caroline got up and looked toward the window seat.
Adrian was too excited to tell Caroline about the feelings he had for her for the past 20 years and
“Caroline, I …”
“Gwen?” After confirming that the person sitting by the window was Gwen, Caroline apologized to Adrian and rushed over.
“Gwen, is it really you? What are you doing here? Also…”
There were a number of beer bottles on the table. Caroline took the bottle of beer from Gwen’s hand and asked, “How much did you drink?”
Gwen was obviously drunk and couldn’t recognize the person before her at all. She stood and tried to get her beer back, but she swayed and nearly fell.
Luckily, Adrian moved fast and held her up.
However, Gwen reacted to this like a cat whose tail had been stepped on. She shoved Adrian away. “Go away. You men are all disgusting!”
Every guest in the restaurant turned to look over at them.
Adrian was at a loss for words.
Meanwhile, Caroline went forward to hold Gwen up. As she did, she said to Adrian, “I’m sorry. My
friend is drunk.” She also asked for the restaurant staff to bring the bill.
Adrian said, “It’s on me.”
Caroline replied, “No, that wouldn’t be right.”
Adrian said, “There’s nothing wrong about it.”
After he said that, he helped to support Gwen again. “It looks like Gwen has had a lot to drink. I’ll
help you with her.”
The second he touched Gwen, Gwen shoved him away again.
Caroline felt impatient Thank you, but there’s no need I can send her home myself. I’m very sorry about today I was going to discuss the partnership with you
Adrian hid the disappointment in his eyes. It’s alright,” he said.
But he couldn’t help but ask, “Are you really going to be okay alone?”
Caroline was holding onto Gwen, who was swaying violently. “I’ll be fine. We’re leaving now.” Then she guided Gwen out of the restaurant.
Adrian watched as Caroline left. After suppressing the urge for a moment, he finally decided to chase after her.
He said. “It’s better if you let me send you two home!” As he spoke, he took the initiative to hail a
Caroline wanted to say something when she saw Jack not far away, but Adrian had already helped Gwen into the cab. Not knowing how to turn Adrian down, she could only get in the car as well.
Once the cab got moving, Caroline sent Jack a message telling him to leave first.
Jack had noticed that Caroline came out with a man, and they had gotten into the same cab. It was just that he couldn’t confirm it for sure at first.
After all, he had only seen her profile. He was only sure when Caroline texted him.
A cold sweat broke out on Jack’s forehead. He didn’t forget that Kirk had purposely called him to
tell him not to allow Caroline to interact with any man!
Thinking of how Caroline had been giving Kirk the cold shoulder lately, Jack shivered. He quickly
Right then, Caroline had finally gotten Gwen to the entrance of her place. She felt helpless as she
looked at Gwen, who was sleeping like a log. She turned to thank Adrian again. “Thank you so
much for your help today.”
Adrian replied, “You’ve already thanked me many times today.”
Caroline opened the door and moved Gwen to the couch with Adrian’s help. Wiping away her
sweat, she said, “I don’t know what else to say but thank you.”
“You can also buy me a meal,” Adrian suggested half–jokingly.
After that, he turned away, not daring to look at Caroline. Caroline was in office wear today, and
her clothes accentuated her figure very well.
