Why didn't you say anything then?
There seemed to be an edge to it. Rosiley took a deep breath and said, "You're angry, aren't you?"
She looked somewhat aggrieved. Sachin raised his eyebrows slightly and curled up his lips, "Aren't you
Rosiley curled her lips and admitted frankly, "I am.”
Sachin nodded. "So am I, then."
Rosiley was at a loss for words.
Frustration hit her suddenly, which convinced her that she was making it worse by getting mad herself.
She let out a heavy sigh and looked at Sachin seriously as she said in the same earnest tone, "Bertram
and I are just friends."
Sachin stared at her without saying a word.
His eyes were too dark for her to read his thoughts.
After a long stretch of silence, he finally opened his mouth and spat two simple words—
So? He said he knew. He didn't misunderstand her and Bertram, nor did he not believe her. But why
was he angry?
She couldn't understand.
Perhaps noting her confusion, Sachin continued, "It's not that I don't believe you. The one I don't
believe is Bertram.”
"Huh?" Rosiley was even more confused.
Why didn't he believe Bertram?
Sachin leaned back into the sofa, his hands crossing in front of his chest. His heavy gaze fell on her
confused face, and the
corner of his lips slowly curled up, "He likes you."
After a short moment of surprise, Rosiley came to her senses and asked tentatively, "Are you afraid
that he would do
something to me?"
"Yes." Sachin nodded, "He is not as simple as he seems to be."
Frowning, Rosiley thought for a moment, "Did you investigate him?"
Instead of answering her directly, he asked, "Why do you think he has become so popular in the
entertainment industry in mere three years?”
"Of course, it's because of his acting skills and good looks."
Rosiley thought his question was stupid. Wasn't that obvious to everyone? Why bother asking?
Sachin chuckled, "Rosiley, do you truly believe that one could succeed in the entertainment industry
just by looks and acting skills? You're underestimating the industry.’
"Is that so?” Rosiley raised her eyebrows and said, "It is a complicated industry. I don't know about
others, but Bertram does succeed because of his appearance and skills.”
Although she was backing Bertram, Sachin did not take it seriously. He chuckled softly, "I do not deny
his looks and skills, but his background is also an undeniable factor.”
"So you're saying that he got to where he is today by his impressive background?"
Rosiley represented what he wanted to say.
Sachin smiled, "Perhaps."
Perhaps? Rosiley raised her eyebrows. He didn't admit that Bertram was popular because of his
"I don't know if that’s the reason. I just want to tell you that he is not as simple as you think he is.”
Alright, she understood what he meant. With all that said, he was just afraid that Bertram would do
something to her.
Deep down, she believed that Bertram was not a calculating man. At the very least, he wouldn't do
anything to her.
But she didn't dare to say it out loud. Sachin was unhappy already. If she voiced that, it would just bring
her more trouble.
So she took a deep breath, raised her right hand, and pretended to be convinced, “I promise I won't
see him alone anymore.”
Sachin was silent for a while before he curled up his lips, "You volunteered for that. I didn't force you.”
‘Dang, he's like bargaining for stolen goods!’
Rosiley curled her lips with annoyance. "Right, you didn't force me.”
‘Sachin, how can I not compromise when you've made it so clear?’
Rosiley was awfully frustrated and aggrieved.
With her assurance, Sachin's mood lightened considerably.
He straightened his back and thought for a moment before saying, "Since it is nonsense, ask TEG to
"I'm going upstairs to call Maddox."
With that, Rosiley stood up and turned around to leave.
"Rosiley,’ Sachin stopped her.
"Huh?" She turned around and gave him a puzzled look.
He smiled faintly, his eyes dark and mysterious. His calm voice came from his lips, "Should we take the
opportunity to publish
"What?’ Rosiley's eyes widened in surprise.
His smile grew even more meaningful.
In the end, they didn't make it public. They just asked Murphy to have the PR department write the
clarification and post it
At the same time, Bertram’'s studio issued a clarification statement, too.
The two statements were similar, both admitting that Rosiley and Bertram had indeed met in the car
downstairs at the TEG
building, but they were just friends instead of lovers, as the rumor had it.
People online suspected the two similar statements were planned. It was even more suspicious for the
two sides to deny their
relationship at the same time.
Just as they were suspicious about the clarification, someone spoke up for the two.
“Bertram and Rosiley are just friends, and Rosiley already has a boyfriend. Don't read too much into it.
Fans of Bertram’s, Bertram is still yours! Love you!"
Under both statements, there was a comment post by the ID ‘Emmeline’.
It was actress Emma's Weibo account.
When Rosiley was vilified for pushing Rorey, who had been pregnant at that time, it was Emma who
posted a video to prove Rosiley's innocence.
This time she spoke up for Rosiley's again. Suddenly, it aroused another heated discussion on the
Internet, and opinions varied.
“Bertram? No, Emma and Rosiley are true love!"
"Oh My Goodness, I'm getting so excited seeing two ladies being together!”
"Don't be silly, guys. Emma was just a distraction. Bertram and Rosiley must be a couple!"
“Don't you think it's strange? When Rosiley was wrongly accused, Emma posted a video. Now that
Bertram’s relationship with
Rosiley was exposed, she jumped out again. Isn't it obvious that she's just taking advantage of it to
make a name for herself?”
“Emma is just taking advantage of it. I agree with you."
"Bullshit, she doesn't need to do that at all. She's already very popular with our supports.”
All of a sudden, there were all kinds of comments online. Some fans even started to attack each other.
It was a mess.
"What... Is Emma making trouble?”
Yayoi followed every update of the event and didn't know what to make of Emma's seemingly righteous
Rosiley raised her eyebrows, "She had good intentions, but she underestimated those people online.”
"They are not underestimated. They just simply got nothing better to do!”
Juliet scoffed at those nosy people.
Rosiley chuckled, "Juliet, didn't you rush out and attack people when your favorite idol was under
discussion? Aren't you just
"I..." Juliet snorted coldly and raised her chin arrogantly. "I was protecting my idol. It was different.’
Nowadays, people online were flip-floppers. They changed their views according to circumstances and
people blindly because others were doing the same. It was no longer the simple online environment it
used to be.
