"Damn Leila!" Mandy said through gritted teeth.
The change in her facial expression told Essie that Mandy believed her. Grabbing the opportunity, she said further, "That day, Leila asked me out for a cup of coffee. She saw the ring on my finger, and I told her that Zac gave it to me. She was livid. I was glad that she was falling into my trap, but I didn't expect her to be so devious. She ran to you to tell tales, set me up, and tried to ruin our friendship." She sighed heavily. "Our ten-year friendship, ruined just like that by that woman. Our friendship was too fragile for this test. I will never meddle in your relationship with ice guy from now on, or you may kill me where I stand."
These words were the killing blow. Mandy no longer had any sliver of doubt toward Essie. At the thought that she had almost killed her friend yesterday, she felt regret welling up in her heart.
How could she be so stupid as to believe her biggest rival?
"Essie, I was wrong. Please forgive me. I won't be tricked again." She fervently hugged Essie.
"You're more important to me than any of my other friends." Essie patted her head. "To be honest, that ice guy was only nice to me so that he could win me over on his side. I wash his clothes, clean his room, and cooked food for him. I am like his 24/7 unpaid nanny."
"Do you really do such belittling things to yourself?" Mandy raised an eyebrow.
"Well, I don't have to pay rent," Essie retorted with a shrug and a snicker.
Hearing this, Mandy smiled back. Leila was her greatest enemy, and she had to join hands with her friend in order to take that woman down.
In the apartment...
As she entered the house, Essie heard Zac talking on the phone.
As it turned out, it was precisely the woman who drove a wedge between her and Mandy, Leila, who was on the other end. It seemed like she was trying to ask Zac out for dinner.copy right hot novel pub
