Chapter 270: How Could She Scold You
"My mother liked to draw very much. It is said that my grandmother raised my mother to study fine arts
since she was young, so my mother did a good job.”
Rosiley saw him turn around several times to look at the painting on the back seat. She took the
initiative to mention her mother.
"The painting is very beautiful.” Payton praised sincerely.
"It's beautiful, but it's the only one left." At this point, Rosiley said with regret.
"Why?" Payton was very curious. Since her mother liked drawing, there should be a lot of works.
"They were burned." Rosiley replied indifferently, "At that time, my mother's condition was worse and
worse. Perhaps she felt that she was about to die. It was no use to keep the paintings, so she burned
Payton shook his head and said, "Your mother is really resolute.”
Rosiley smiled and didn't say anything else.
She turned her head and stared at the painting blankly.
She remembered that she was only five years old when her mother drew this picture.
Her mother hugged her on her lap and told her how beautiful J City was while drawing. Rosiley must go
and see it when she grew up.
Every time her mother talked about J City, her eyes were full of affection, and her words were filled with
yearning for that place.
But before her mother could take her to J City, her mother left.
Payton noticed that Rosiley didn't speak for a while. Payton turned around and looked at her. However,
he noticed the sadness on her face. He couldn't help but frown. Did he ask too much about her
If so, he had to say something happy to amuse Rosiley.
Just as he was about to speak, his phone suddenly rang.
Rosiley also recovered by the ringtone of his phone. She noticed that Payton picked up the phone and
looked at it, but he immediately hung it up.
She raised her eyebrows and did not ask any further.
Just as he was about to throw his phone into the storage box in the middle of the car seat, it rang
This time, Rosiley took a glance at his phone.
She raised her eyebrows and asked tentatively, "It's Juliet, right?"
Payton knew that she had seen the words “unlovely witch’, so he couldn't help but feel a little
Because this unlovely witch was Juliet.
Juliet was Rosiley's best friend. When she saw him save such a name, Rosiley might think that he was
going too far.
Rosiley smiled as if she had seen through his thoughts. "The note is quite cute; While Juliet is not cute
Payton smiled with embarrassment, "Well..."
The phone stopped ringing for a few seconds before ringing again.
Rosiley couldn't help but laugh, "It seems if you don't answer the phone, and Juliet will call you all the
Payton said with indifference, "It's okay. If I don't pick it up, she'll give up.”
"You don't know Juliet enough yet. How could she give up so easily? Besides, if you don't answer it,
she will use a terrifying method to get back at you."
"Really? Is she so abnormal?"
Rosiley spread out her hands and said, “It's true. She's like that.”
Took revenge on him in a more horrible way? To Juliet, it was indeed possible.
Payton decided to answer the phone. After all, he and Juliet met regularly. He did not want to be in
Thus, when the phone rang again, he picked it up without hesitation.
"Good morning, Miss Elton.”
"I'm not good at all. Why don't you answer the phone?"
Because the carriage was very quiet and Rosiley was close to him, she heard Juliet's complaint from
Rosiley couldn't help but laugh. Why did Juliet sound mischievous when she spoke like this?
Hearing her laugh, Payton was embarrassed. He hurriedly said to the person on his phone, "I'm driving.
Is there anything important? Or I'll hang up."
"Payton, if you dare to hang up, you will regret!"
Juliet's roar almost broke Payton's eardrums.
He hurriedly took his phone away from his ear. At this time, he saw Rosiley was even happier.
This seemed even more awkward.
Thus, Payton coughed softly and said patiently, "I'm not hanging up. What's the matter?"
She didn't say anything. After a while, Juliet's voice sounded again, "I'll treat you to lunch. Come to my
house to pick me up later.”
"Why?" Upon hearing that she was treating him to lunch, Payton felt that something was wrong.
"No reason. I'm just treating you to lunch. Come to my house at eleven oclock."
Without giving him the chance to refuse, Juliet hung up the phone immediately.
"Damn, what does she mean?" Payton felt as if he had been tricked.
Rosiley patted him on the shoulder and said, "I sympathize with you.”
“Rosiley!” Payton suddenly turned to look at her and said pitifully, "Rosiley, can you tell her that I'm not
"No!" Rosiley rejected him, "I don't want to be scolded by Juliet."
"Why would she scold you? You're her best friend. How could she scold you?”
"Payton, can't you tell that Juliet is in a bad mood? How dare I provoke her at this time?"
"She is under the weather?" Payton frowned, "Will she also be in a bad mood?"
"It might have something to do with yesterday's blind date.” Rosiley guessed, and then said earnestly to
him, "Since Juliet is in a bad mood, you should be careful and amuse her."
Payton curled his lips and said reluctantly, “Alright.”
Juliet was really in a bad mood now.
After yesterday's blind date, she was in a bad mood and especially irritated. So she ran to the bar to
relax and drink until it was almost twelve oclock before she went home.
Unexpectedly, when she woke up this morning and went downstairs to have breakfast, she was
scolded by her father.
"Why did you do that yesterday?" Ebenezer sternly questioned.
Juliet was still a little unconscious because of her hangover. Hearing his question, she did not react for
a moment. "What did I do?"
Seeing her indifference, Ebenezer was so angry that he slammed down on the table forcefully and
His loud voice wakened Juliet.
Juliet looked at her angry father and quickly put on a flattering smile, "Dad, don't be angry. If your blood
pressure goes up again, it's not good for your health.’
Ebenezer sneered, "If you were really worried about my high blood pressure, you shouldn't have done
something that made me angry.’
Juliet curled her lips and asked, "Dad, did you say the blind date yesterday?”
"What else? What else can make me so angry?”
"Dad, I didn't do anything wrong.” Juliet did not understand why he was angry.
"You said you didn't do anything wrong?" Ebenezer roared again.
Juliet was instantly chicken out, "Alright, I did something wrong.’
