Chapter 306: She Is Making Trouble for No Reason
"Payton, there you are.’
Hearing this, Payton and the girl simultaneously turned their heads to look at the speaker, only to see
Juliet standing not far away and staring at them with a faint smile.
Tonight, Juliet was in a well-fitting light blue dress, which flattered her good figure. With makeup, she
looked more charming.
As she smiled, her clear and beautiful eyes shone with attractive light.
Payton's eyes flashed with astonishment. He knew how beautiful Juliet was. But tonight, she was
“Juliet!” The girl beside Payton shouted in surprise.
Juliet noticed that there was a girl sitting beside Payton.
Juliet looked over and rounded her eyes wide in surprise. She slowly walked up to them and
uncertainly called out, "Tracy?"
"Yes, it's me.” Tracy put on a big smile, obviously revealing her happiness. “Juliet, I'm so surprised to
see you here."
Tracy was here with Payton. Could it be....
Juliet concealed her thoughts and smiled at Tracy. "I came with my father. What about you? Are you
Juliet seemed to ask very casually, but it slightly sounded like she was probing.
Tracy did not realize it and answered truthfully, "Payton dragged me here. He said that he needed a
date and he asked me for help. So, I came.”
Juliet had already guessed that this was the case, but she still felt jealous. She smiled less heartily, and
her gaze at Payton became a little cold.
"Payton, isn't it easy for you to find a date? Why do you ask Tracy for help? She's my friend, not yours.”
Juliet couldn't help but ask bluntly.
Payton frowned. Even a fool could tell that Juliet was unhappy.
But why was she unhappy? Did Juliet mind his bringing Tracy, who was her friend, to the party? Or
Juliet was unhappy that he came with Tracy?
Before Payton could figure it out, Tracy got anxious.
“Juliet, I offered to help. Payton didn't force me.” Tracy anxiously explained for Payton.
However, Tracy did not know that her explanation made Juliet even more jealous.
Juliet didn't expect that Tracy and Payton were so close.
“Miss Elton, Tracy is your friend, but she is also my friend. So, it's not too much for me to ask her for
help." Payton felt that
Juliet was making trouble for no reason.
She was being totally unreasonable.
Juliet looked at Payton calmly, finding him frown with dissatisfaction.
Juliet suddenly realized that she seemed to have gone too far. She and Payton were not a real couple.
It was Payton's
freedom to choose his date.
Juliet was a little too impulsive, like a woman who had caught her boyfriend dating another woman.
Juliet took a deep breath and slowly exhaled. She then smiled brightly and said, "I'm sorry for going too
far. I'm sorry.”
Then she continued, “I won't disturb you anymore. I'll go back to my seat."
Without waiting for Payton to react, Juliet left.
Looking at Juliet's receding figure, Tracy thought for a moment. Then she turned to look at Payton and
“Payton, Juliet likes you, doesn't she?"
Payton raised his eyebrows and chuckled. "You're overthinking it. We're just friends.”
“Is that so?” It could be seen from Juliet's behavior that Juliet didn't see Payton simply as a friend.
Noticing that Tracy didn't believe him, Payton smiled and caressed her head. "Don't think about it.
Whether Juliet likes me or
not is her own business.”
Tracy looked at his face and frowned. Why did she feel that Payton's tone sound so weird, as if he tried
to distance himself from Juliet?
Tracy turned to look at the direction where Juliet had left, but she failed to see Juliet.
Tracy had a feeling that Juliet liked Payton. But did Payton like Juliet?
That was the question.
“Lane, deliver a speech for me later."
Sachin stood in a corner and observed. Then, he said to Lane, who was beside him.
"Yes, I know.”
This was a routine every year. Even if Sachin hadn't primed him, Lane would have prepared a speech
in advance because he understood Sachin, who didn't like to appear in front of the media.
"Bring Rosiley here when you see her,’ Sachin ordered.
“Alright.” Lane replied. Then he walked towards the stage.
The party was about to begin.
Along with a warm opening dance, the party began in earnest.
First, the high-ranking mayor and the secretary of Benin City gave a speech. Then, the person on
behalf of REG would make a speech.
It was supposed that REG's president, Sachin, would deliver a speech on the stage. Thus, all the
reporters had set up cameras, ready to film this rare occasion.
Unexpectedly, the one showed up was not Sachin, but his secretary, Lane.
All of a sudden, all reporters got disappointed. Rosiley couldn't help but hang her head and secretly
laugh. These reporters must have been cursing Sachin privately.
Sachin, who would always keep a low profile, upset those reporters.
However, even if they captured Sachin, they wouldn't be able to publish the news.
So, it didn't matter whether Sachin showed up or not.
"Mr. Sachin didn’t show up.” Although Raye was prepared, he sighed heavily in disappointment.
"Don't be disappointed.” Rosiley patted his shoulder and said, “Even if he doesn't show up, his
secretary does. Film this. We have to collect materials after going back."
"I know." Raye's voice sounded a little dispirited.
Rosiley smiled and shook her head. She picked up the camera, planning to take a few pictures of Lane.
But because of the
long distance, she couldn't focus on him, so she decided to give up.
Lane's speech was brief, and it ended very quickly. After he stepped down, Rosiley's phone rang.
Looking at the number, she couldn't help but laugh. Wasn't this the person who had just spoken on
She picked it up and the voice from the other side immediately rang out.
"Madam, Mr. Sachin told me to bring you to him.”
Rosiley looked around. The party had just begun, and she was busy with her job. It was improper for
her to leave now.
So, she said, "I'll call you when I'm done”’
There was a moment of silence over there. “Alright.”
Rosiley hung up, turning to look at Raye and the others. "Raye, you guys, record the whole thing. Don't
miss out, especially
on those important celebrities. Do you understand?"
"We know.’ Raye looked at her impatiently. Rosiley had already told them this many times, and they
were almost able to recite her order backwards.
"I'm afraid that you will forget.’ Rosiley angrily patted Raye's head.
Raye stuck out his tongue and turned around without saying anything.
