Setting down his spoon, Jordan was slightly touched by Roxanne who came to his defense.
‘This girl has good moral values…’
“Miss Roxanne, you’re still in the recovery phase and should not get too worked up.”
As Jordan spoke, Roxanne also realized that she had lost her temper, so she sat down obediently.
“I think you two have misunderstood. I only have a doctor-patient relationship with Miss Bane…”
Before he could finish his sentence, he noticed a slightly aggrieved look beside him.
“Of course, we’re also friends,” he added, and the aggrieved look disappeared.
“I’m already a married man, and I have no ulterior motives toward Miss Bane. So, there’s no need for you to hold such great hostility toward me…”
Upon learning that Jordan was already married, Roxanne paused her movements for a moment. Then she closed her eyes with her eyelashes trembling and said nothing. But Tritus was instantly agitated. He didn’t expect that Alder, who was close to his own age, was already married.
Anyway, it was good that Jordan was already married. No matter whether Roxanne had any special feelings for Jordan or not, this statement completely quashed any possibility of them being together. Tritus had the opportunity to get Roxanne now.
It would be fine if Tritus stopped indulging in his own fantasies at this point. Unfortunately, he began to suspect that Jordan might have surrendered on purpose because Jordan feared his reputation.
Thinking of this, Tritus felt like a rooster that had won a fight, proudly puffing out his chest.
At this very moment, due to Roxanne’s outburst and Jordan’s “surrender”, the scene fell into an awkward silence.
‘Isn’t this the perfect opportunity to show off?’
“Waiter!” After Tritus gestured with a snap of his fingers, a waiter hurried over.
Then, he whispered something to the waiter.
Soon after, to everyone’s surprise, a large grand piano was pushed out by the restaurant staff. It was moved all the way to the table where the four of them sat and then secured in place.
“Mr. Tritus, the piano you requested has arrived…”
Tritus nodded and got up from his seat. After stretching himself, he sat down at the piano and played with his fingers moving in sync and his hands crossing over each other. The clear sound of the piano filled the restaurant, and as his movements became faster, the music became more passionate. Even the staff at Star Pavilion couldn’t help but be mesmerized.
“Wow, Mr. Tritus is so impressive. I never knew he could play the piano.”
“Yeah, with his wealthy family background and multiple talents, he’s the prince charming of my dreams.”
Naturally, Tritus overheard these praises and so he played even more ardently.
When the music ended, the audience erupted in applause. After bowing slightly, he then approached Roxanne.
“Miss Roxanne, in terms of looks, talents, and family background, I’m among the top ten in Bainbridge. I don‘t understand why you don’t like me, but I have genuine feelings for you…”
He then took out a jewelry box from his pocket and opened it.
Eleanor’s eyes widened as she saw the dreamcatcher necklace inside. It was the only top-grade gemstone necklace in the world and had been sold at an auction a few years ago for 40 million to a wealthy buyer. She couldn’t believe it was now in Tritus’ hands.
“Even though the necklace is just an object, I hope it can represent my heart. Will you accept it and be my girlfriend?” Tritus asked, handing the necklace to Roxanne.
When he said this, Eleanor’s breathing accelerated.
She didn’t even care that Roxanne had screamed at her in anger earlier and urged anxiously, “Roxanne, hurry up and accept it. This is Mr. Tritus‘ heartfelt gift, and only he can give such an expensive gift in the whole of Bainbridge.”
However, Roxanne remained unmoved. At the moment, all she could hear were Jordan’s declaration in her head.
‘He’s already married!’
