Astor leaned against the wall with his arms crossed in front of him as he quietly watched everything going on.
If he hadn’t learned the hidden truth from Tritus’ subordinates, he would have thought that Tritus was a genuinely caring guy. After all, such meticulous arrangements were not something that just anyone could do. But the fact was that from the beginning, Tritus’ intentions were impure.
In order to prevent Astor and Roxanne from dining together, he actually sent his subordinates to break Astor’s limbs. With such a character, no matter how well-disguised Tritus was on the surface, it would never be enough to cover up his filthy black heart.
At this point, Tritus, who had been waiting for a long time to say a few more romantic words, glanced toward the crowd and suddenly saw Astor.
‘It’s him! I invited Roxanne out many times, but she rejected me every time. Yet today, Roxanne actually took the initiative to invite Astor to dinner. What is it about him that I cant compare to?’
‘In terms of appearance… Astor is indeed a bit more handsome than me. In terms of talent… Uh, it seems he is a miracle doctor who has participated in the Holy Doctor Competition. But, but. How can a poverty-stricken boy compare to me?’
‘The assets belonging to my Lullaby Family are worth at least trillions. And I, Tritus Lullaby, am a strong competitor for the next head of the Lullaby Family. A mere miracle doctor is nothing compared to me!’
Thinking of this caused Tritus’ anger to suddenly rise. His originally gentle smile also slowly faded.
Josua pointed a finger at Astor and asked, “Roxanne, are you hesitating because of him?”
Following Tritus’ direction, Roxanne noticed Astor who had already arrived.
Since Astor came this time with a request for the other party, he made a special effort to dress a little more formally in order to show respect. With his already impressive looks enhanced by a subtle makeover, he became even more handsome.
His laid-back suit only added to his unmistakable individualistic and self-assured demeanor. Even the usually critical Eleanor couldn’t help but admit that Astor was excessively handsome.
Looking at the other person’s deep pupils, Roxanne clearly showed a hint of panic. Immediately she regained her composure and shook her head lightly.
Then, she replied calmly, “No, it’s not because of him!”
Although she reacted quickly, the momentary change in her expression was still noticed by Tritus. It added fuel to his inner fire!
“Why did you invite him to dinner, then?”
“To thank him for saving my life. Besides, this is my private matter. Tritus, don’t you think you’re being too nosy?” With a furrowed brow, Roxanne replied coldly.
She was moved by Tritus’ meticulous and romantic preparation, so if he had persisted a little longer and said a few more moving words, she might have agreed in a moment of heat. However, Tritus’ personality was too domineering and hasty.
Now that Roxanne had calmed down, she also came to her senses.
Sure enough, habits were hard to change. All the words he had just said were false promises.
However, the man himself had no sense of awareness at all. When Tritus saw Roxanne‘s icy gaze at him, he stood up and was about to continue questioning her when Eleanor suddenly cleared her throat. The two locked eyes and the latter secretly shook her head with a glance at Roxanne. It wasn’t until now that Tritus calmed down.
‘Right, Astor helped Roxanne cure her terminal illness. Treating him to dinner is just a normal thing to do. I was just being jealous and lost my mind. Calm down… There’s still room to make things right!’
Immediately, Tritus quickly restored his gentle smile. “Roxy, sorry. I was just too hasty. l was worried about you being deceived by others…”
Behind him, Eleanor also stepped forward to help. “Yes, Roxy. You know your illness has been going on for so long without anyone being able to cure it. It’s hard to believe that you’ve recovered all of a sudden. If I hadn’t witnessed it first hand, I wouldn’t have believed it.”
With Eleanor’s advice, Roxanne’s expression improved slightly.
