It wasn't just Rosiley and the others who were shocked, even Payton was dumbfounded.
Payton did not expect her to directly announce their relationship. He was instantly frozen.
After a while, Rosiley regained her senses, "Juliet, today is not April Fool's Day."
They would argue whenever they met, how could they date?
"It's true." Juliet smiled and walked to Payton's side. She held his arm affectionately and said, "It was
today when we fell for each other and decided to have a try."
Afterwards, she turned to look at Payton and asked with a cunning smile, "Payton, is that true?"
Being led by the nose, Payton could only nod. "Yes, that's true.”
After he finished speaking, he let go of his hand that was covering Diego's mouth. Diego, who regained
his freedom, immediately cried out,
"Holy shit, it turns out to be his girlfriend. I wondered why Payton was so nervous. It turned out that he
was afraid that his girlfriend would be taken advantage of."
Payton looked at him coldly. "Could you please hold your tongue?"
When Juliet heard Diego's words, there were complex emotions in her eyes, but she soon calmed
"Congratulations, bro." Allen stood up and walked forward. He clenched his fists and gently pushed
Payton on his chest. "As expected, you learnt from your brother. You found a girlfriend so soon."
Payton smiled awkwardly. "Thanks."
"lL envy you so much.” Allen laughed heartily, and then looked at Juliet tentatively. "Juliet? Are you
Juliet raised her eyebrows in surprise. "You know my father?"
Allen smiled. "I've met him a few times."
Back then, Ebenezer was an officer of a certain government department in the Capital, but after just a
few years, he was promoted as the committee secretary of Benin.
"Ebenezer's daughter. Nice to meet you." River also stood up and looked at Juliet with a gentle smile.
"She's more beautiful than I expected."
Juliet beamed. "Thank you."
Obviously, they all believed that Payton and Juliet were dating, but Rosiley didn't buy that.
She looked thoughtfully at Payton and Juliet. At this moment, a low voice sounded in her ears.
"Honey, since you're suspicious, why don't you ask?"
Rosiley turned around and said, "Sachin, you don't believe it either.”
Sachin smiled. "I know my brother very well. He is a man about town. It is impossible for him to be
serious to a woman."
Hearing this, Rosiley couldn't hold back. She stood up and walked past the coffee table to Juliet. She
took her hand and said, “Juliet, go to the bathroom with me.”
As she spoke, she pulled Juliet into the bathroom in the corner of the room.
The men looked at each other and the corner of Diego's mouth twitched. "Rosiley and Mrs. Lu are so
close that they even go to the bathroom together."
Hearing him address Juliet as Mrs. Lu, Payton slapped him on the forehead and said, "Shut up. I'm not
Although it didn't hurt, Diego still covered his forehead and retorted to him, "Does anyone make a rule
to forbid me calling her that even if you're not married?"
"Me!" Payton spat out a word and glared at him fiercely. "If I hear you call her Mrs. Lu again, I'll..."
"You'll what?" Diego glared at Payton unwaveringly.
Seeing that the two were at loggerheads, Sachin said coldly, "Quiet! You're no longer kids, but you're
still as childish as children."
After he spoke, Diego and Payton shut their mouths.
River and Allen couldn't help but laugh. Only Sachin could be the one overwhelming the two clowns.
In the bathroom, Rosiley crossed her arms and looked at Juliet with a faint smile. "Juliet, the others
might have been tricked by you and Payton, but I wasn't."
Juliet was at a loss. "What trick? Are you talking about my relationship with Payton?”
Rosiley didn't say anything and just stared at her meaningfully.
Juliet couldn't help but laugh, "Rosiley, did you read too many novels? Why do you think I'm tricking
"Because I know you.”
The sentence froze the smile on Juliet's face.
Rosiley continued, "I know you like Payton, but Payton doesn't like you. At the very least, I can't tell, so
it's impossible for you to be with someone who doesn't like you."
The bathroom fell into utterly silence. Rosiley looked at Juliet quietly and did not urge her to explain.
If she insisted on not saying anything, she would not force her.
Juliet hesitated. Rosiley was her best friend, and there was almost no secret between them.
But this was a shame. Rosiley would definitely say that she was crazy if she found out.
After a long time, Juliet took a deep breath and said, "Rosiley, Payton and I were just acting as lovers."
She still told the truth because she didn't want Rosiley to overthink.
Rosiley raised her eyebrows. "Why?"
She must have her reasons for doing so.
"Because my father wants me to go to a blind date again.”
Rosiley didn't seem to be surprised at all. Her expression and her tone were calm as she continued,
"So you wanted to find a boyfriend in order to avoid the blind date, but a random man wouldn't do, so
you found Payton. After all, you know each other, and the most important thing is...”
She paused for a moment, and her eyes carried sharpness. "You like him."
Juliet smiled bitterly. "Rosiley, I can’t hide anything from you.”
"Juliet, you're playing with firea lion.” Rosiley did not approve of her doing this. What if she was hurt in
Juliet pursed her lips, and she had some sadness in her smile. "So what? How can I know if we're
compatible if we don't try?"
She was just licking her wounds and did not take her own feelings seriously.
Rosiley sighed resignedly and advised, “Juliet, Payton is a very playful person. Maybe one day, he will
dump you and pursue someone else.
What will you do then?"
Juliet shrugged and said with an indifferent expression, "It's not like we're really together. It's his
freedom to pursue whoever he likes."
Although she made light of it, Rosiley understood her and knew that things weren't as simple as she
If that day came, she might not be able to get over it, and she might even seek suicide.
"Are you sure you want to take the risk?" Rosiley looked at her seriously and asked.
"I'm sure." Juliet also answered with seriousness and certainty.
Rosiley smiled. "Then, all I can do is bless you."
Juliet thought that Rosiley would persuade her, and she didn't expect her to be supportive.
Juliet couldn't help but feel a little touched, "Rosiley..."
"This is the road you choose. It may be hard to walk, but I will be by your side." Rosiley knew her
personality. Since she had made up her mind, she would definitely do it and it was useless to
persuade, so she could only support her and help her as much as she could.
"Thank you, Rosiley." Juliet couldn't hold back her excitement and stepped forward to hug her.
