Chapter 373: Pretending Illness
After dinner, they said goodbye to each other. Rosiley sent Raye home, and then drove to Imperial
Juliet and Yayoi were waiting for her there.
"Sorry, I'm late.” Rosiley opened the door of the private room and walked in, crying loudly.
Juliet immediately stood up, hugged Rosiley's shoulder and said, "Rosiley, how dare you stand us up!
You shall make amends for your being late by drinking three glasses of wine.”
She handed the glass in her hand to Rosiley.
Rosiley looked at the wine glass and raised her eyebrows in surprise. It was almost full of wine.
“Come on! Don't overdo it please!” Rosiley smiled and looked at Juliet, then at Yayoi.
*Rosiley, I'll drink with you.” Yayoi waved the wine glass in her hand at Rosiley, then raised her head
and drink it all.
Rosiley frowned slightly and turned around to ask Juliet softly, "What happened to Yayoi?"
Yayoi rarely drank alcohol unless she was in a bad mood. That was why Rosiley asked so.
Juliet curled her lips and said, "You know, Maddox's fiancée stuff"
“Did she bother Yayoi again?" When Rosiley was in the Capital, she heard from Juliet that, Maddox's
fiancée gave Yayoi a million yuan, trying to persuade her to leave Maddox, but was rejected by Juliet.
That happened only a few days ago. Rosiley thought his fiancée wouldn't trouble Yayoi again in the
"No." Juliet shook her head, "Maddox has returned to home for days and has not accompanied Yayoi,
so Yayoi is worried that Maddox would compromise with his grandfather.”
Was that so?
Rosiley raised her eyebrows slightly and sat beside Yayoi, stopping her from pouring wine.
Yayoi turned her head and stared blankly at her.
Rosiley took the wine bottle from her hand and gently smiled, "Yayoi, you must trust Maddox. Now that
he challenged his grandfather's authority for you, he will not easily compromise with his grandfather.”
A trace of surprise appeared in Yayoi's eyes. Then, she turned to look at Juliet and frowned slightly.
"Rosiley, did Juliet talk nonsense to you?"
Rosiley was puzzled, "What? Juliet was talking nonsense?"
Rosiley looked up at Juliet, who innocently shrugged, "Just guessing.”
Rosiley rolled her eyes and sighed helplessly, "That makes sense. I know Yayoi always trusts Maddox.’
Juliet stuck out her tongue at them and smiled quietly.
"Then why did you drink so much?” Rosiley poured wine for Yayoi and asked.
"I feel a bit anxious.” Yayoi pursed her lips. "Since I met Maddox's grandfather, I have been very
uneasy. I feel that something bad is going to happen.”
"Maybe you're too sensitive,’ Juliet said.
Yayoi glanced at her and shook her head. “No, I'm really uneasy. As I think of Wendy's words, I worry
that she might do something bad to my parents.”
Rosiley frowned and thought for a while, "Do your parents plan to go to work now?"
The Young Group had been officially taken over by Maddox as his domestic base for relocating his
overseas businesses back home. Yayoi had returned all the shares that Maddox given to her. Although
Yayoi was no longer the CEO of the Young Group, her parents could go back to work here if they
"They don't have this plan at the moment. They said that they haven't had a good rest from work
before. They want to take advantage of this opportunity to have a good rest.”
Rosiley suggested, "Why don't you let your parents travel abroad and stay away from the troubles
here? Let them come back when the matter between you and Maddox is settled.”
Juliet nodded and said, "Good idea.”
"My parents might not agree to travel abroad.” Yayoi knew her parents well. They wouldn't like to go to
a country where people had completely different language, customs and eating habits.
"Then persuade them. If you're really worried that Wendy may hurt your parents, you have to persuade
Whether or not it would happen, it was good to take precautions.
Yayoi thought about it seriously and then nodded, "Well, that's the only choice now.”
Rosiley smiled and then reached out to pick up the wine glass on the table. She said, "Come on.
Then, Yayoi and Juliet raised their glasses and clinked glasses with Rosiley. They raised their heads
and drank all the wine in their glasses.
While Juliet was pouring wine, Rosiley asked, "Why did Maddox returned to home?”
“It's said that his grandfather has fallen ill.”
Rosiley was surprised, "What? Why don't I know?"
Sachin went to work as usual in the past few days, and he never mentioned that his grandfather was
Juliet curled her lips, "I don't know. Payton didn't mention it to me”
"That doesnit make sense." Rosiley felt that something was wrong. “If his grandfather is sick, why
haven't Sachin and Payton visited him? Unless...”
"Unless he is pretending to be sick." Juliet continued, “If he is pretending to be sick, the purpose must
be to make Maddox compromise.”
Rosiley frowned, “Looks like Sachin and Payton have known about this. Otherwise, they would have
Juliet nodded, “Maybe. Probably they thought that Maddox could solve it by himself, so they let it go.”
Rosiley nodded. Juliet was right, but she still wanted to ask Sachin after getting home.
Yayoi took a deep breath and said with a smile, "Alright, let’s not talk about this. We're here for fun, let's
Rosiley raised her eyebrows and smiled, "As long as you're happy, we're happy.”
She picked up her glass and said, “Cheers.”
“Let's forget it and have fun.” Juliet raised her glass and cried.
Yayoi looked at her two good friends and smiled more happily. Actually, she did not trust Maddox as
much as Rosiley thought.
However, Yayoi did not want them to worry about her. She knew Rosiley had her own concerns too. As
a friend, Yayoi shouldn't make Rosiley worry about her.
Therefore, Yayoi tried to be happy in front of them.
Rosiley and Juliet, who did not know what Yayoi was thinking about, got excited after drinking a few
glasses of wine. They cheered up and enjoyed themselves.
They had fun together until late at night, and they were all drunk. Sachin and Payton had to come to
bring them home.
