A Beautiful Misunderstanding

Chapter 68 Do You Want To Push Me Into A Corner

Mandy was about to explode.

Zac picked up the plate in front of Leila and cut her steak into small pieces.

Leila glanced at Mandy with a triumphant smile on her face. Mandy returned the look with a murderous glare. She actually wished that her eyes were sharp enough to cut her rival into bits.

Meanwhile, on the other side, Essie was totally indifferent. She was as calm as the still, unruffled waters of a fathomless well.

After eating her portion of foie gras, she sighed with satisfaction. Then, she started to sample the steak. "This is so delicious. I don't remember the last time I had a French meal." She didn't raise her head. She didn't even know whether she was talking to herself or to the plate.

Mandy took a sip of the beef consommé and tried to dispel the uncomfortable pressure in her insides. Then, she turned her attention to Essie and said, "I don't know when you last went to a French restaurant, but wasn't your first time in one when you were a college freshman? Didn't Hanson took you there?"

Essie's hands, which were holding a knife and a fork, quivered slightly. After some time, she nodded wordlessly.

The meal was as sweet as first love for her, which made her mope for a full three months. From that day on, she became hopeful for the future.

"At that time, Hanson was not the son of Bella's boss. That French dinner with you must have cost him a pretty penny back then." Mandy sighed. "It's so strange. He's willing to do that, yet he wasn't in love with you?"

Essie gave her a slight glare. "Come on, I'm trying to have my meal in peace here," she said with mock annoyance. She didn't want to talk about her relationship with Hanson anymore, in case someone else might blow it out of proportion.

Mandy smiled awkwardly, "I just remembered it."

Across the table, Zac swirled the red wine in his glass and took a sip, a touch of melancholy in his eyes.

A sly smile crossed Leila's face as she listened to their conversation.copy right hot novel pub
