She did not think Jagoan would say no. It was because Jagoan came to Crosac with the diplomatic convoy to talk, communicate, and make a connection between the two cities so that Dorodo and Crosac would thrive in peace.
There was no way he would resist when she offered him such a benefit!
Unexpectedly, Jagoan slowly shook his head.
“Are you rejecting me? Think it through. You only get one chance at such generous terms!” Aria snapped, pounding the table.
She was livid now. As the second heiress of Crosac, she was looked after and fawned upon wherever she went. No one dared to upset her.
However, the man before her humiliated her repeatedly. Besides, she had stooped to cozy up to him, yet he still rejected her and was so ungrateful.
How dare he!
Aria felt her anger raging inside her.
Jagoan slowly replied, “Your offer is excellent, but I can’t believe it. You’re too emotional, impulsive, arrogant, proud, vain, and callous. I can’t cooperate with someone like you. I trust Ms. Lisha more than I trust you…”
“How dare you mention her…” Aria sprang to her feet with what seemed like flames burning in her eyes.
“Jagoan, you’ll regret it. You turned me down. Sooner or later, you’ll regret it! I’ll make you kneel and lick my shoes when the time comes!” Aria spoke harshly and turned around to walk outside.
It was then that Jagoan finally returned with the coffee.
“It seems I made the coffee for nothing…” Jagoan seemed to be complaining, but his tone was lighthearted.
He was so happy to see a woman with her eyes above the top of her head, Aria, humiliated by his commander.
“How is it for nothing? We can drink it ourselves.” Jagoan laughed before picking up the coffee that Jagoan had put on the table.
The mayor’s residence…
The mayor’s office.
Claremento’s face was grim, and the captain of the personal guards was briefing him in front of his desk.
“Sir, Ms. Aria went to Commander Jagoan’s room ten minutes ago. She stayed there for five minutes before storming out.”
Hearing the report from the captain of the personal guards, Mayor Claremento nodded slowly.
“Aria is trying to talk Jagoan into taking her side. It seems she also realizes what he represents, what he’s worth, and what he’s capable of doing…”
“She’s finally not so stupid, but what she’s done in the past has made it impossible for her and Jagoan to work together. Her reaching out to Jagoan now will only make their relationship more difficult. Looking at it this way, she seems more stupid than before… Oh…”
Mayor Claremento let out a long sigh as he reached the end of his speech.
He was shock knowing what Aria did. He could see that Aria was too bold and stupid.
The captain of the personal guards asked in confusion, “Sir, why do you give Ms. Aria freedom but continue to put Ms. Lisha under house arrest? Do you believe Ms. Aria?”
