Chapter 294: Don't Be Shy If You Like Him
Rosiley was just joking. She lowered her head to have the soup as she finished. She did not notice that
Juliet's expression instantly changed when she heard her words.
Juliet frowned and pondered for a moment before asking, "Rosiley, who do you think he will go with?"
"What?" She raised her head. Seeing Juliet's serious face, Rosiley immediately realized what she was
thinking. She was amused, "Juliet, don't tell me that you mind Payton bringing a date."
"I do mind.” Juliet replied calmly.
Rosiley laughed, "Juliet, you are just pretending to be lovers. You have no right to prevent him from
taking anyone to the party."
"But I like him."
That was a good reason.
Rosiley smiled and shook her head, "Juliet, I know you like him. But in spite of the contract, you are
single. He can go to the party with anyone
he likes. Do you understand?"
Juliet was annoyed and put with a long face, "Rosiley, are you my best friend or not?”
"Yes." Rosiley nodded.
"Then why are you speaking for Payton?” Almost everything she said was from Payton's point of view,
which made Juliet upset.
Rosiley raised her eyebrows. "I'm not speaking for him. I'm just being objective."
To tell the truth, she didn't want Juliet to fall for Payton before they knew about his attitude. Otherwise,
if Payton ended up being with someone else, Juliet would not be able to bear it.
With such concerns, she would rather be a sober person to remind Juliet when romance went to her
Juliet bit her lip and glared at Rosiley discontentedly.
Apparently, she didn't understand Rosiley.
Rosiley sighed and smiled, "Juliet, you like Payton. I understand. But it's just your feelings. There's no
proof that he likes you back. So you have to calm down and accept everything he did as a single man.
No matter who he flirts with, it's his freedom. You have no right to interfere."
"What do you mean by I have no right to interfere? I don't want him to be intimate with other girls."
Juliet was high-handed and self-centered. If she liked someone, she wanted him to like her and only
her. And other women should not get close to him.
"Are you his girlfriend?" Rosiley stared at her and asked casually.
"I..." Juliet avoided her gaze and bit her lip angrily.
This time, she could not answer her question confidently. Rosiley paused and then said earnestly,
"Juliet, if you meddle in Payton's personal affairs as his fake girlfriend, he would only think that you are
nosy and even annoying. Therefore, keep distance. It's good for both of you."
Juliet did not say anything.
Rosiley smiled and continued, "If you like him, you should cater to his likes and make him feel that you
are a good girl. Gradually, he'll fall in love with you."
Juliet let out a long sigh and said disappointedly, “But how do I know whether he will like me?”
"Juliet, do you think he didn't see it?"
Juliet looked up at her, who raised her eyebrows and smiled meaningfully.
Did Rosiley mean Payton had known that she liked him?
"You are going to the Elton's with Juliet tonight?” Maddox looked at the man sitting on the sofa in
Payton turned to look at him and said, "Right, what's wrong?"
"Dude, you're going to meet her parents!" Maddox laughed mockingly.
"There were no other options.” Payton shrugged, "I've agreed to help her.”
"Tell me, why did you agree?" Maddox got up and walked to him. He sat opposite Payton and looked at
him with a puzzled expression.
Actually, in his opinion, Payton and Juliet had nothing in common. One was careless, and the other
was hot-tempered. It was hard to imagine them being together. If they got married, their future days
would be a good show.
"I softened.” Payton answered casually.
"Softened?" Maddox shook his head, "Payton, I think you're not softened. You're fascinated by her,
After saying that, he raised his eyebrows ambiguously towards Payton.
“Nonsense.” Payton raised his leg and gently kicked him in the stomach.
Maddox laughed even louder, "Payton, you got shy."
"Shut up!" Payton rolled his eyes at him, "What's there to be shy about?”
"You are shy about falling in love with her.”
Hearing this, Payton couldn't laughed, "Maddox, are you serious? Why do you think that I am attracted
by that woman?"
Maddox leaned back on the sofa, squinting and examining every inch of Payton's handsome face
carefully. "Payton, don't be shy. Admit it if you like her."
"What am I admitting?"
Payton, who was so scared by his gaze, picked up the magazine on the table and threw it onto him. He
said reproachfully, "Maddox, stop doing
that disgusting face and gaze. It makes me feel like a suspect."
After putting the magazine back on the table, Maddox got serious and asked, "Are you sure that you
have no feeling for Juliet?"
"No." Payton replied with certainty.
"Alright." Maddox shrugged his shoulders and curled his lips, "I was thinking too much."
"Exactly." Payton glared at him.
It was impossible for Payton to be attracted by Juliet. He would only fall for a gentle and elegant girl,
just like Rosiley, his sister-in-law.
Payton admitted that Juliet was very beautiful, but she was a bit showy. He preferred the kind of mild
beauty of Rosiley.
He recalled the scene of Juliet getting drunk and sleeping last night. Hot-tempered as her, she was
quiet for the moment. Her delicate little face looked especially tranquil.
He had to admit that he couldn't get his eyes off her last night.
"If you don't like her, it's not a good idea to fake being her boyfriend for a long time. I think I should
introduce some guy to her. What do you think?"
Maddox wanted to ask for Payton’s opinion, but he found that Payton was deeply absorbed in his
thoughts. He was smiling and there was tenderness in his eyes.
Maddox stared at him for a while and then smiled meaningfully.
It seemed that things were not that simple.
