Leanna did not expect Jagoan to refer to a homemade meal when he invited her to lunch. Not only that, he asked that she go grocery shopping with him.
On their way back from the store, he suddenly asked her, “How are things in the South?”
“Everything’s fine… Jagoan’s looking after the properties under your name, and the Ten Greatest Families of Eastshire and Stonedale are helping out too. Businesses are running smoothly. Mr. Quincy is wholly in charge of the production of the Reconstruction Pill, so the production line is more established now.”
She summed up the updates from Eastshire and Stonedale while they were walking.
She added, “You need to take good care of yourself in Bainbridge. If you mess around here, I’ll go home and tell Jagoan about it.”
Jagoan was relieved to hear the updates. “Miss Sandel, since we’re on the topic, I should talk some sense into you. Aren‘t you tired of shouldering all the burden? You’ll need a shoulder to lean on at the end of the day. Is there anyone you’re interested in? I can matchmake for you with my reputation as the Lord of Eastshire.”
She was incensed at the lecture and pinched his ear in anger. “You rascal! I came to Bainbridge to warn you about Fabien Blanc. How dare you school me in return!”
“Ouch, ouch, it hurts! Let go! Let go now.”
They returned to Renew while joking around.
Unbeknownst to them, someone was already waiting for Jagoan in the main hall.
When he noticed the Bane sisters, he quickly stopped Leanna’s antics. “Miss Sandel, let go now! I have guests…”
Roxanne had visited Renew with the excuse of expressing her gratitude to Jagoan; she also planned to get some clues about his relationship with Lola.
Before she had the chance to clarify her doubts, she witnessed him playing around with a different women. On top of that, he showed up with bags of groceries in both hands. The two appeared like a married couple who had come home from grocery shopping.
What drove her mad was the fact that Leanna looked good with Jagoan.
Judging from how they addressed each other, they were not married.
Huh? Does that mean he’s picked up a new woman?
That made her blood boil.
Jagoan placed the groceries on the floor, rubbed his ears, and went up to Roxanne.
“Miss Roxanne, it’s been a while. How do you feel? Are you fully recovered? You dropped by at the right time. Join us for a meal! We’re making lunch!”
There was nothing wrong with his speech, but Roxanne was irked by how he casually threw around the word ‘us’. To her, he was such an annoying married man.
To his surprise, the shy and introverted Roxanne ignored his friendly invite and scoffed.
Before he knew it, she stomped on his feet hard. “Hmph! You playboy! Join us for a meal? No, thanks!”
With that, she stormed out of the main hall.
What she left was Jagoan looked on with a puzzled look.
Did I say something inappropriate when l invited her?
Does she not enjoy having lunch and hanging out?
Is that something to be angry about?
Standing beside him, Leanna had no clue about the relationship between Jagoan and Roxanne, but as a woman, she was well aware of the reason behind Roxanne’s anger. She was probably jealous at the sight of us playing around.
I told him not to flirt around, and the next second, a jealous woman popped out of nowhere.
It did not shock her too much, though, as she knew his good looks and friendly personality were chick magnets.
In the middle of the awkwardness, Eleanor walked up to her. “Leanna! Why didn’t you tell me you’re in Bainbridge? I could’ve thrown a welcome party for you!”
