"I know, aunt. I'll be back soon." Zac interrupted her and turned his back to walk away. He didn't want to deal with such things as he had other things on his mind.
At the bar, Essie filled up Leila's glass and asked, "Are you Zac's ex-girlfriend?"
Leila sat there while a flash of annoyance was seen from her eyes. She asked impetuously, "Why? Are you worried that I'll take him away from you?"
Essie passively waved her hand and casually responded, "I'm not worried about that at all. I just hope you don't treat me as a rival."
