“Payton, what are you doing?"
In the quiet corridor, Payton took Juliet's hand and walked forward at a fast pace.
Juliet tried her best to break away from his hand. Anger filled her pretty face.
“Payton, let go of me!"
Juliet shouted at the tall figure in front of her.
Suddenly, Payton stopped. Before Juliet could react, she spun around, and then hit the wall with her
She frowned in pain. She raised her head and saw Payton approaching her. Payton put his hands on
both sides of her head, and his black eyes were shining.
He was very close, and Juliet could smell the cold minty freshness of him. Payton was a handsome
man. Now, with the spotlight above falling on his face, his facial features looked even more finely-
Juliet's heart began to beat wildly.
She blinked her eyes and took a deep breath to calm herself down. Then, she asked, “Payton, what do
Payton raised his eyebrows slightly as he curled corner of his lips. He replied, "What do you think I
"I... How do I know?" Juliet glared at him angrily.
“You just had a good chat with Allen.”
Payton suddenly changed the topic. Juliet was surprised for a moment before she replied him defiantly,
“Didn't you also have a good time with Charlotte?"
Hearing this, Payton couldn't help but laugh, "Miss Elton, Charlotte is my sister. Why couldn't I have a
good time with her?”
"Sister?" Juliet sneered, "Do you really think of her as your sister?"
“What does it look like?” Payton asked.
Juliet fell silent for a moment and then said indifferently, "You two are not related by blood.”
Payton was a smart person. He immediately understood what she meant.
“Are you afraid that we'll go beyond brother and sister, that I will have feelings for her?"
Juliet turned her face away and bit her lips silently.
Payton chuckled, “I won't fall for Charlotte.”
Payton's words were more like a pledge to Juliet. Juliet turned her face and looked at him, slightly
As if afraid that she wouldn't believe him, Payton repeated, “I wont fall for Charlotte.”
He didn't like her anyway, right? Why did he say that?
Didn't he know that she would misunderstand?
The corridor was completely silent.
They looked at each other and didn't say anything for a moment.
After a long time, Juliet asked softly, “Payton, do you like me?"
Payton was amazed. He put on a smile and said, "I do.”
He answered too quickly and without hesitation. It seemed too fast to be true.
Juliet asked again, “Do you like me in that way?"
Payton pondered for a moment before asking, “What do you think?”
“I don't know,’ Juliet answered calmly. However, her next sentence truly surprised Payton.
“But ... [have a way to know whether you like me or not.”
What way? Payton frowned. Before he could think about it, his suddenly felt the warmth on his lips.
Yes ... She kissed him.
His black eyes were filled with astonishment. He lowered his eyes and looked into her clear eyes in
Although they had kissed before, they didn't mean it. They kissed only under special circumstances.
Those were not sincere kisses.
When her soft lips touched his, Payton felt something throbbing in his heart.
This was a feeling he had never had before.
However, Juliet was just doing it at her will, without any skills.
A glimmer of smile appeared on Payton’s face. Juliet was an unskillful kisser. She did not know how to
Juliet was already very shy to take the initiative to kiss Payton. When she caught his smiling eyes, she
couldn't help but feel a little embarrassed. She pushed him away and said angrily, "Payton, you are so
She was angry, yet also flirtatious.
Payton's eyes shone as he stretched out his long arm and pulled her into his embrace. With "You little
fool, this is the real kiss. I'll teach you", he blocked her slightly open red lips with his.
Juliet's pupils suddenly dilated. She was surprised that Payton would kiss her.
Her fingertips felt numb. She wasn't drunk because of the wine, but because of a kiss from him.
She felt as dazed as a small boat floating on the sea. She could only float and sink along with the
waves, completely losing her direction.
Xenia was charged with forgery and intentional homicide.
However, she refused to plead guilty, insisting that the equity transfer document was prepared and
signed by Seneca when he was still healthy. As for intentional homicide, she argued that the person in
the video was not her.
Apart from pleading not guilty, she also refused to cooperate with the police investigation, which made
the case deadlocked.
Another thing worth mentioning was that Xenia, who had been in detention for some time, was
released on bail.
Rosiley was shocked when she heard the news.
Rosiley had no intention of letting her out when she sent Xenia to the detention center. Unexpectedly,
Xenia actually came out.
The police could only agree to Xenia’s application for bail pending trial because she said that she was
unwell and needed hospitalization.
"I've got the results of the hospital examination. Xenia's got breast cancer.
Lane informed Rosiley of the latest situation.
After Rosiley heard this, she widened her eyes in surprise, "Breast cancer?"
She didn't know about the others, but she knew Xenia. Xenia had a medical examination every year,
and there had never been anything unusual. How could she suddenly get breast cancer?
The only possibility was that Xenia had been hiding her physical condition all this time.
Rosiley frowned and pondered for a moment before asking, “Lane, is it possible that Xenia and the
hospital have already crossed paths?"
If the hospital faked that Xenia had breast cancer, Xenia would have a reason to excuse herself.
"It is.” Lane thought for a moment and then said, "We can apply to the police for a re-examination, and
find a hospital that we are familiar with.”
“No,” Rosiley shook her head and rejected his proposal. "It will do if she's really sick. If not, Xenia will
definitely insist that we're faking the result. It's too troublesome for re-examination."
Sachin, who had been quietly sitting beside them, suddenly said, "We can ask the doctor to examine
Xenia without letting her know."
Without letting her know? Rosiley bit her lip and thought for a while, then her eyes suddenly lit up.
"Sachin, do you mean that we don't have to tell the police?”
Sachin nodded, "Well, let's do it privately. Regardless of the outcome, we will know about the situation
“In that case, we will be more confident in how we will deal with Xenia.”
“Rosiley, you are indeed very smart,’ Sachin praised her.
Rosiley smiled modestly, "Not as smart as you are.”
The two of them looked at each other and smiled. Then, Sachin told Lane what to do.
Rosiley looked at him quietly. With him around, she could really be rest assured.
